BEVERLY, Mass. - Fifth-year head coach Joe Calabrese is excited to announce his incoming recruiting class that in just over two months will be competing for a spot and playing time in the 2015 season. This 10-member group varies in geographic location including Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and one player native to Jamaica. In addition, four transfers across NCAA Division I and III institutions will join the program this fall.
"The 2015 recruiting class will add much needed depth to our roster next season," said Calabrese, who coached the Gulls to its best finish since 1998 with a 12-7-4 record and ECAC New England title. "This class includes big time athletes and technical players. They'll continue to be great teammates, leaders, and competitive animals here at Endicott. We look forward to playing an attractive and winning brand of soccer in 2015. This group will support us in those efforts."
