Aug. 12, 2014
OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s soccer team continues to work toward the season opener against Georgia on August 22, and head coach Matt Mott has been pleased with his teams progress through the first week of fall camp in anticipation for the contest.
The opener against the Bulldogs will be the first live sporting event broadcast on the soon to be launched SEC Network and Mott likes what he’s seen from his team a little more than a week away from competition.
“With about a week under our belt, I’m very happy with our progress,” Mott said. “Our fitness level has allowed us to move along very quickly in our preparations. I’m very happy with what I’ve seen from the returning group and the freshmen have really come in and impressed. We still have a lot of work to do before the first match.
“Our overall team speed has been the most impressive thing so far,” Mott said. “We have speed at every position and that is something well look to use to our advantage as the season moves on. The depth is really great and will help us as everyone come in and picked up where we left off or the new players have really learned our system quickly.”
The Rebels kicked off practice last Wednesday with a spirited morning workout, the first of two that day, and have continued workouts throughout the past week that include positional meetings, technical drills and 11-on-11 competitions and scrimmages. The squad has also continued to work on physical fitness through conditioning drills and weight training with the strength and conditioning coaches and athletics training staff.
The squad continues preseason workouts through the course of the next week with the 16 returning players and six newcomers going through drills, before kicking off the season at 6 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium in the match with Georgia.
Fans can get autographs from the squad and interact with the team on Saturday at the annual Meet the Rebels celebration presented by Cannon Motors. Gates will open at noon for the general public and at 11:30 a.m. for members of Rebel Kid’s Club.
