Gaitan returns to UT after World Cup experience

The Toledo Rockets women's soccer team is gearing up for another season starting with a showdown with Purdue on Friday. UT hosts the Boilermakers at Scott Park at 5:30.

Last season UT won 1-0 in overtime in West Lafayette. On Sunday the Rockets travel to another Big Ten school, Illinois, at 1pm.

Brad Evan's squad returns eight of the top 10 scorers from last year's team that went 10-1 in the MAC and shared the regular season title.

Also coming back is junior defender Natalia Gaitan. Gaitan spent her summer as co-Captain of the Colombian World Cup team. An experience that both she and her coach feels will help her this season.
