The team is comprised primarily of current college
players and players who are about to start their college
careers. Many of the players have been a part of Torres'
Ponte Vedra Storm team for many years and are excited about
having the opportunity to play together in the summers as
they return home from their various colleges.
The team is young but will have some very experienced
players for their age. Current college standouts like Notre
Dame center mid Elizabeth Tucker and Atlantic Sun Freshman
of the year Carolina Lencina, as well as the A-Suns leading
scorer Lauren Hopfensperger, are excited about the team.
There will also be a strong presence from many of the local

players from the University of Florida, FSU, UCF, UNf, and
Jacksonville University asked to participate.
We are excited about the team and see it as a way to bring
high level women's soccer to Jacksonville while continuing
to provide the college players with an opportunity to
continue to play and develop over the summer.
