[WAKE FOREST WOMEN] After suffering the loss of seven seniors, the Wake Forest women are in need of reinforcements, and Coach Tony da Luz believes he got them with the arrival of three players -- Aubrey Bledsoe, Rachel Nuzzolese and Katherine Stengel -- with U.S. youth national team experience.
 
“This class addresses a lot of our needs,” da Luz said. “We lost seven very high quality players in our 2009 senior class. I think the biggest loss is in the front three with the loss of [Kaley] Fountain, [Jill] Hutchinson and [Allie] Sadow. There were a lot of goals, personality and leadership in those three players. We feel like we have some really good attacking players coming in to replace them.
 
“We also lost defensive players such as Caitlin Farrell, Bess Harrington, Laura Morse and Sarah Winslow that will be tough to replace,” da Luz continued. “We’ve got some good players coming in. Cheyenne Biehl is already here. Jackie McSally, who can play in the back or in the midfield, has a defensive personality.
 
Along with Biehl, who enrolled in school this spring, Bledsoe, Nuzzolese, Stengel and McSally, the recruiting class includes Chelsea DeLiberto, Courtney Owen, Lee Page and Kelsey Zalimeni.
