ISU coach Rebecca Hornbacher is excited about the prospects for this season.Hornbacher says they have more depth and that depth will help in a number of areas across the field. For the first time, Iowa State will host five night games after new lights were installed at the Cyclone soccer complex. She says it’ll be a great atmosphere to play under the lights. Iowa State opens Friday against Arizona. Also part of the Cyclone Classic is Drake. The Bulldogs have nearly the entire team back from last season in which they won the Missouri Valley regular season title.Drake coach Corbin Stone who says 2003 was a breakthrough season for the program and there are a lot of expectations. He says they were able to put together a really good conference season with only one loss, and he says he’s not sure if they’ll be able to match that type of season. Stone says the Bulldogs have their sights set even higher this year, as he says the best way to get the NCAA Tournament is to win the conference tournament.
