NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (May 11, 2018) -- Head Coach Eric Dobrzanski announced on Friday the signing of defenders Brianna Pineiro and Laura Stanley to the Johnson & Wales women's soccer program.

Pineiro and Stanley join previously announced Fiona Butler, Kellie Fitzpatrick, Sawyer Hall, and Tyler Einsmann to comprise the 2018 signing class.

"We really could not be more excited to add two defenders like Brianna and Laura," Coach Dobrzanski said. "They both are players that will impact our program both now and in the future. They are both driven individuals that will bring so much to our program on and off the field. I really appreciate everything the two of them and their families have done throughout this process."

  Coach Dobrzanski: "Brianna is a very athletic outside defender that has a great future here. Bri is physical and very technical on the ball, she is going to be a major part of next season and our future.  She is a good 1v1 defender and likes to get into the attack from the outside back position. Bri is also versatile and can help us at other positions."
