"We are excited and grateful to bring the highest level of women's soccer to New Paltz and provide a pathway for all of the talented women in the area. This is a great next step for the program and will provide strong competition for the future, current, and former college soccer players of the Hudson Valley. At the Crusaders, we are passionate about providing a highly competitive, positive, and professional athletic environment for female athletes and the United Women's Soccer League enables us to do all of that and more”, stated owner Hannah Esslie.
