Ammon Bennett, head men's soccer coach at Iowa Lakes Community College, has announced his 2012-13 men's soccer roster. The roster includes five returning players and 20 new athletes that will compete for the Lakers.

"We are very pleased with the players coming in this fall and can't wait to begin practice on August 9th," said Bennett. "The returning players along with the new group will bring a great deal of technical ability and big background in club soccer. This along with a decent international group of players should put us in contention for a run at the region title."

The Lakers return starting keeper Tanner Collins, and all region performer Jaycon Yeates. Dilan Mathys who wasn't able to play last year because of a knee injury will be back along with midfielders Jared Rowell and Aristides Meija.

"Our returners will be key to our success but will have to work hard to keep the starting positions that they had last year as our incoming group is very talented," Bennett said.

The schedule is a very competitive one for the Lakers as it features several ranked teams including conference rivals, Iowa Western, Iowa Central, North Iowa Area Community College, Marshalltown, Indian Hills and Scott Community College. The non-conference schedule also includes games against Maple Woods (KS), Johnson County Community College, Barton Community College, Oakton Community College, Dakota County Technical College and Century College.

"The schedule is highly competitive and should challenge us and hopefully prepare us for the postseason," Bennett said.
