AUSTIN(KXAN) — The Longhorns soccer season begins on Friday with an exhibition match against Air Force. Then, Texas hosts Gonzaga in its regular season opener on Thursday, August 22.
The Longhorns are ranked No. 19 in the preseason polls and picked third in the Big 12.
Longhorns head coach Angela Kelly is entering her eighth season at Texas.
Kelly spoke of the importance of recruiting internationally, but also the state of Texas. She also took a trip down memory lane about her amazing four seasons at North Carolina as a player. Kelly won four national titles while losing just one match in that four-year span.
While she doesn’t remember a lot of the wins, she will never forget the tie and the loss.
