Clemson Notes:

  • Clemson finished the 2017 season with a record of 10-5-4 overall, 3-4-3 in ACC play and 7-1-1 in nonconference action. The Tigers opened their 2017 campaign with a six-match undefeated streak before falling in their seventh match. The streak was the second-longest for head coach Eddie Radwanski since taking over the program in 2011.
  • The Tigers return nine starters from the 2017 squad, including senior defender Sam Staab and sophomore forward Mariana Speckmaier, who each earned All-ACC honors a season ago.
  • Radwanski is entering his eighth season at the helm of the Clemson program. In 2016, Radwanski was named ACC Coach of the Year after leading his squad to an ACC regular season title.
  • Starting keeper Sandy MacIver has yet to join the Tigers this preseason, as she has been competing with England’s National Team in the U20 Women’s World Cup in France. England won their group, defeating defending U20 World Cup Champion North Korea in the opening match. MacIver started all three matches in net during the group stage, allowing only three goals.
  • Clemson is 22-1-1 (.917) when it comes to season openers, dating back to the inaugural season in 1994. At home, the Tigers are undefeated at 15-0-0, while on the road, Clemson is 7-1-1 (.778).
