Sounding Off on Soccer: Pitt women’s soccer 2022 outlook with Rachael Kriger

Rachael Kriger joins John on the podcast as they take a closer look at the Pitt women’s soccer program, as the Panthers’ aim for their third straight winning season and strive for the program’s first-ever berth in the ACC and NCAA Tournaments.

In addition, Rachael will be returning to the broadcast booth for two Pitt women’s soccer home broadcasts this season and along with Mark Goodman, she’ll provide coverage for Pittsburgh Soccer Now.

Pitt women’s soccer program has shown considerable improvement in recent years, but they’ve still yet to reach the ACC or NCAA Tournament.  Will this finally be the year that Pitt reaches new heights, as they return almost their entire roster from 2021 season.  Rachael visited the Panthers and spoke with Head Coach Randy Waldrum, and provides her report and takeaways from camp.

In addition, look for Rachael’s 2022 Pitt women’s soccer season preview to post on Wednesday.
