Cagle on Newton: "As unassuming as Mary Elizabeth looks, she had a very obvious impact on our season last year. She is probably one of our team's best soccer players, both with and without the ball, and does a dynamic job for us attacking out of the back. As she continues to improve as a defender, she will certainly become one of the best left-sided players in our conference."
