The Rosemont women's soccer team showed remarkable improvement in only their second year of competition. The team, selected to finish ninth in the CSAC pre-season rankings, finished in fourth place and earned a home CSAC semifinal playoff game. The team more than tripled their number of wins, moving from a record of 3-11-1 in their first season to a record of 10-7-0 this season, finishing 4th place in the CSAC and hosting a quarterfinal game. Mixing very talented freshmen with an already solid roster of returning players the Ravens showed that they are a team to be reckoned with for years to come.
