about trotting out four, five, maybe even six newcomers this season.
That should tell you a little something about this freshmen class.
"I've been at this for 24 years, and I've been on all sides of it," Ashley

Midfielder Hannah Schroeder is expected to play big minutes for Sebring this

Varsity will provide an entirely new set of challenges, but Schroeder said
she is unfazed.
