The IU Kokomo Women's Soccer team concluded its first regular season with an overall record of 7-8-3, 3-4-3 RSC, also securing a spot in the River States Conference Quarterfinals while finishing seventh in conference.

"I am so proud of these ladies for all of their hard work. They had a number of changes and new experiences to endure through the season and they did a fantastic job handling the pressure. To start the season with 19 freshman and compete against established programs, it makes me very excited for the future. It was a goal of ours to qualify for the conference tournament in year one and to do that is something that each of the ladies should take a lot of pride from," said Head Coach Terry Stewart.

"We have a great deal of talent and a desire to get better. Next season promises to be an exciting year for IU Kokomo Women's Soccer. At this time, I also want to make a special thank you to Taylor Coram, our lone senior, who was a tremendous leader and has left a lasting impression on our program. On senior day, Taylor got her reward for all of her hard work and energy throughout the season, with two goals in right minutes against Rio Grande in a 4-2 victory."
