Husker soccer adds two players to 2018 roster

The Nebraska soccer team added a pair of student-athletes to the roster on Wednesday.

Kate Leachman and Kenzie Coons will each enter their first season with the Huskers in 2018.

Leachman transferred to Nebraska from Idaho State, where she played one season of college soccer. Leachman started 13 of her 17 appearances in 2017 and logged 1,019 minutes.

Coons meanwhile spent one semester at Texas Tech as a mid-year enrollee in January before coming to Nebraska. She played high school soccer at Millard West.

A first-team all-state performer, Coons helped the Wildcats win the state title in 2015.

The Huskers open their 2018 season with an exhibition match against Arkansas on Thursday, Aug. 9 at Hibner Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m.

NU’s regular-season opener is at Oklahoma on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 7 p.m.
