HANOVER, N.H. – Head coach Danielle Spencer has announced her first freshman class that features nine members of the Class of 2020.

A talented group of individuals, the nine will vie for playing time as the Big Green will feature 19 underclassmen in 2017. 

Six states make up the homes of the team’s nine newest members with three coming from New Jersey, two from Massachusetts and one each from Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and one from New Hampshire.

“We are very excited about the class of 2020,” Spencer said. “They add great passion and motivation to the team. We are proud to welcome them to the Big Green program.”

Despite the large size of incoming group, the Big Green’s 10-member sophomore class remains the largest of the four.
