The Boston College women’s soccer team has announced that Mijke Roelfsema will be joining the team this fall. Roelfsema, a defender from the Netherlands, spent last season with ADO Den Haag's women's team. She started all but 3 games for the team, which plays in the top Dutch division. Roelfsema has played for both the U-19 and U-17 Dutch teams.
Roelfsema is one of 9 new Eagles joining the women’s soccer team this fall. The 7 other incoming freshmen are Samantha Coffey, Julia Homan, Jillian Jennings, Mia Karras, Riley Lochhead, Gianna Mitchell, and YaYa Van Ness from Saratoga Springs, New York. The Eagles are also gaining a transfer this season - Elysa Virella from Monroe College. Roelfsema and Coffey are the big names joining the squad, as both have represented their countries in international play.
The Eagles struggled in ACC play last season despite going 11-7-1 overall, so adding another strong recruit to the roster is an encouraging sign.
