Four players – Melody Fisher, Mary Parker Powell, Renee Semaan and Taylor White – make up the 2016 recruiting class. The newest members of the APSU roster spent the early morning hours, Tuesday, moving in to their respective dorm rooms.

Fitness testing will begin Wednesday’s schedule, followed at 4:00pm, by the first team practice at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field. The team will also gather around the television to catch the Olympic Games in Rio, with former Gov Tatiana Ariza and Colombia facing France at 8:00pm.
