Whether it is making important tackles, winning headers, driving up the middle on a dribble, or switching the point of the attack with a defense-splitting pass, Louise is the heart and soul of our team."
Louise Stephens said: "I chose Rice because it was a place where I could get a fantastic education while also playing Division I soccer. Rice has a such a unique soccer program because it has a passionate group of coaches that are taking the team to a whole new level. Everyone on the team is so friendly and welcoming, and made me feel part of the program almost immediately. I love the campus, Houston, and can't wait to join the team!"
