Fillies find their man

Tifton--ABAC introduced Jimmy Ballenger as the new head women's soccer coach Monday afternoon. Ballenger is the first ever women's soccer coach in the school's history and will take on the difficult task of starting the program from scratch.

Ballenger says the first order of business is to build a field for the girls to play on but after that it's all about recruiting.

" I really feel like if we can get the young ladies here as far as academics and as well as got the skills for the soccer field, on the soccer field that we're going to be very successful," Ballenger said.

The ABAC soccer program will not start playing competitively until the 2006 season.
