The Aggies return 13 letterwinners and eight starters from last year's team that finished 9-7-5 and advanced to the WAC Tournament semifinals.

W 1-0--- at Southern Utah (Ex.)
In its only exhibition of the preseason, Utah State defeated Southern Utah, 1-0, in Cedar City on Saturday, Aug. 13 behind a goal from sophomore midfielder Kendra Pemberton. Junior midfielder Julia Flores collected the ball in the middle of the field and made a great pass to senior striker Shantel Flanary who dribbled past a Thunderbird defender and delivered an outstanding cross. Pemberton nearly had to dive to connect her head with the ball at the six-yard box, as the ball found its way into the left side of the net.
