On Tuesday April 10, coach Amanda Janney announced she will hand the captain duties to Katie Briglia, who will be the Owls’ lone senior in the lineup and current sophomore Molly Doyle.
“I cannot believe [Janney] picked me to be one of our captains for next year,” Doyle said. “We will be returning only one senior, and I will have plenty of responsibilities.”
Doyle, a midfielder/defender out of Merion Mercy Academy (Merion, Pa), has three career goals, all from her freshman campaign. The history major started 11 games as a freshman in 2010, including scoring the game-winning goal in her first game at Temple, a 4-2 victory against Bucknell on Aug. 28, 2010.
As a sophomore, Doyle started in 20 of the 22 games in 2011, which included the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament championship game, a 1-0 defeat by Richmond. Temple has posted a 18-25 record in Doyle’s first two seasons.
The Owls will begin their fall 2012 season tentatively scheduled on Saturday Aug. 18 at Geasey Field hosting Lehigh, before playing the Cherry and White scrimmage at Geasey the next day. Virginia and Duke will visit the Owls for the 2012 Temple Invitational on Friday Aug. 24 and Sunday Aug. 26.
The Owls will enter the 2012 season with0ut All-American Bridget Settles due to graduation. Settles led the team in scoring with 20 goals last season.
