UCSB women's team signs 11
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The UC Santa Barbara women's program recently announced the signing of 11 athletes to National Letters of Intent.
"Once again we are very excited about this recruiting class," coach Paul Stumpf said. "We have signed three blue chippers as well as several other players we believe will help us compete. We've signed young ladies who aren't only good players, but they are solid students. Further, we've once again played very close attention to character, and we are continuing to move the culture of our program in the direction we want it to be. Four or five of these players will challenge for starting positions and they will all help us have the chemistry we want."
