OXFORD, Ohio – With the 2017 season just over three months away, Miami University head soccer coach Bobby Kramig has tabbed seniors Katie Alexander and Amy Malone as the RedHawks’ team captains for the fall.
Malone has played in all 59 matches the Red and White have competed in since arriving for the 2014 season, logging over 1,000 minutes each season while helping MU finish second in the Mid-American Conference as a freshman and advance to the MAC Tournament finals as a sophomore. She started all 19 contests last season and logged a career-high 1,603 minutes at midfield while chipping in a pair of assists.
A spring injury forced Alexander to miss the entire 2016 season, but all signs point to a strong return for the midfielder who played in 19 matches (17 starts) in 2015. That season, Alexander played 1,320 minutes and helped Miami post a school-record 0.65 goals against average while notching 11 shutouts en route to a berth in the MAC Tournament finals that season.
The RedHawks finished fifth in the MAC standings a year ago and have qualified for five-straight MAC Tournaments.
