State College finds itself under the new leadership this season with hiring of Chelsea Cummins.
Cummins was a former standout at Warwick High School, who scored 29 goals during her senior season in 2001. She was part of two state championship teams there.
She went on to play at Ohio University, where she tied for the team lead in scoring in 2004.
“I am so excited to be leading this great group of girls and being a part of the State College community,” said Cummins, who married State College wrestling coach Ryan Cummins this past summer.
Cummins will be looking to turn around a program that suffered a rare losing season (8-10-0) last fall, facing tough competition in the Mid Penn Conference
She returns first team All-Mid Penn selection Paige Meily and honorable mention pick Megan McCarthy. Annie Vidunas is also a scoring threat.
“The team has been working hard all summer to prepare for our lofty goals this season,” Cummins said. “We are focusing on coming together as a team amd family on and off the field. The team needs to work on the fundamental skills of the game to continue competing in the Mid Penn.”
