COLUMBUS, Ohio Little was expected initially of Nick Hagglund when he joined Toronto FC's squad for preseason training in late January.

The rookie winger out of Xavier University offers an immediate attacking threat and room for growth in 2017. Rochester's coaching staff is fairly high on what Brown can do for the team this season.

Eclipse Select Soccer Club midfielder Celeste Carlson (Park Ridge, Ill.) relishes the responsibilities that come with her defensive center midfield role, and she is excited to be taking her game to the Atlantic 10's Xavier University for her 2013 freshman season.
"Like a lot of the girls, I came here to Eclipse wanting to play in college, and through years of hard practices and big games, to finally get that feeling that you've done it and accomplished that goal, it's undefinable," Carlson said.
