Construction on the new home of Golden Bear soccer - Edwards Stadium/Goldman Field - will get underway this summer. The $3.3 million project calls for the conversion of the track infield into a regulation 70-yard x 115-yard natural grass soccer field. The project is expected to be completed in time for the 1999 season.
Former Cal soccer standout Troy Cowell (1994) has recently signed a contract to play Major League Soccer. A defensive midfielder, Cowell's contract is through the MLS, but he has not yet been assigned to a specific team.
