PITTSBURGH--Twenty former Pitt women's soccer players are expected to return to campus this weekend when the Pitt women's soccer team hosts its annual Alumni Game on Sunday at Ambrose Urbanic Field at the Petersen Sports Complex. Kickoff for the event is at 4 p.m.

"This should be a great day," Pitt women's soccer coach Greg Miller said. "We are all extremely excited to meet our former players. This event also provides an opportunity for our current athletes to form relationships with our former players. Our alums are an important part of our program's history and they are always welcome to return to campus."

Among the 20 alumni players expected to attend include Laura Berbert, Katie Caslin, Maura Caslin, Alex Jaffe, Molly Griganavicius, Ashley Habbel, Jennifer Kritch, Courtney Wrightson, Carli Brill, Aimee Romasco, Rachel Vecchio, Sara Gutting, Stephanie Davis, Liz Carroll, Katelyn Ruhe, Katheryn Kunugi, Morie Kephart, Jacqueline Reuter, Maura Romano and Christina Nicassio.

The Alumni Game concludes Pitt's 2013 spring season. Pitt defeated Marshall 1-0 in an 80-minute exhibition game on Sept. 30. Morgan Sharick provided the game-winning goal on a corner kick in the game's closing minutes. The Panthers then hosted two nationally ranked opponents in Ohio State and West Virginia for dual 45-minute scrimmages last weekend at Ambrose Urbanic Field. Ohio State defeated the Panthers 2-0 and West Virginia earned a 1-0 decision over Pitt in an evenly played match.

Pitt players will report back to campus in August to begin preparations for the 2013 regular season. The 2013 season will be Miller's second season as Pitt's head coach. Pitt returns nine starters and 12 letterwinners from a 7-10-2 team. In addition, Pitt adds a 12-member recruiting class. Pitt will enter Atlantic Coast Conference competition next season.
