The Raiders are coming off a 6-10-1 2014 campaign. A veteran squad...they return their top seven scorers from last year. Natalie Sedlock, a senior forward, led the way with five goals. In between the pipes, goalkeeper Halle Pyle is back. She had a 0.95 goals allowed per game last season.

Louisville started the 2014 season with a 2-0 win on the road over the Raiders. Isabella Habuda netted both Cardinal scores. She's back for of 14 letterwinners from 2014 that are on the roster. 

The Cards went 1-1 in the preseason...beating IU 1-0 and losing to NKU 1-0.

-- Where do they come from? -- Wright State is located in Dayton, OH next to the Wright-Patterson Air Force base. WSU was founded in 1967. (I didn't know it was losted!) 

-- And their mascot, P? -- Why, it's Rowdy Raider!
