• Utah State opened its 2015 campaign with a pair of home shutouts last weekend as it defeated Central Arkansas (1-0) and Missouri State (3-0). Junior forward Jessica Brooksby scored the lone goal for USU against CAU, scoring early in the first half on a straight shot from 30 yards out. Against MSU, the Aggies scored three goals in the second half. Freshman midfielder Jordyn Chung-Hoon put USU on the board first, scoring in the 72nd minute. A free kick found Brooksby with the ball, passing through to Chung-Hoon for the assist. The offensive surge continued just eight minutes later, as freshman forward Sydnie Dolzine found the perfect chance to attack and slide the ball past the Missouri State keeper. Later, sophomore midfielder Wesley Hamblin cemented the win in the 89th minute of the match, as she connected flawlessly on a sideline throw-in from junior defender Karlee Campbell-Zollinger.

Preseason Notes
• Utah State, who is picked to finish eighth in the Mountain West this season is a preseason coaches’ poll, returners two starters and eight letterwinners, and welcomes five newcomers to the program after posting a 13-16 overall record and finishing tied for sixth in the conference with a 9-9 mark. Leading the way for USU this season will be junior outside hitter Kaylie Kamalu, who finished third on the team last season with 232 kills, averaging 2.64 per set and hitting .151 (232-124-715). Kamalu started in 10 matches for the Aggies last season and joins junior libero Hannah Gleason (17 matches) and sophomore middle Hannah Smith (22 matches) as the only returners to have started in double-digit matches for Utah State in 2014. Other returners include sophomore outside Rachel Gale, sophomore outside Kayla DeCoursey, sophomore defensive specialist Maddie Day and junior setter Erica Moscoso. Joining them is redshirt sophomore Carly Lenzen, who has fully recovered from a knee injury that sidelined her for the 2014 season after appearing in 18 matches as a true freshman in 2013. Newcomers for the Aggies include sophomore transfer outside Lauren Anderson and four freshmen: setter Kassidy Johnson, middle Lauren O'Brien, outside Simone Gibeau and defensive specialist Tasia Taylor.
