The Florida Sol FC
is the latest addition to the WPSL Sunshine conference, and will play out of the Fleming Island in the Jacksonville area.
The team will be coached by Luis Torres and will play it's home games at the Clay County Soccer Club complex where Torres is currently the Director of Coaching for girls. Clay County Soccer has also agreed to be the primary sponsor of the team.
The team is comprised primarily of current college players and players who are about to start their college careers. Many of the players have been a part of Torres' Ponte Vedra Storm team for many years and are excited about having the opportunity to play together in the summers as they return home from their various colleges.
The team is young but will have some very experienced players for their age. Current college standouts like Notre Dame center mid Elizabeth Tucker and Atlantic Sun Freshman of the year Carolina Lencina, as well as the A-Suns leading scorer Lauren Hopfensperger, are excited about the team. There will also be a strong presence from many of the local and State colleges as there will be current and future players from the University of Florida, FSU, UCF, UNF, and Jacksonville University asked to participate.
We are excited about the team and see it as a way to bring high level women's soccer to Jacksonville while continuing to provide the college players with an opportunity to continue to play and develop over the summer.
