LOGAN, Utah – Utah State head soccer coach Manny Martins has announced his first full recruiting class as the Aggies are set for five student-athletes to join the Aggies for the 2022 season. Defender Talia Winder will bring additional local flavor to Utah State after playing at Green Canyon High School in Cache Valley. Winder earned four varsity letters for the Wolves as Green Canyon advanced to the state quarterfinals and a state semifinal appearance during her career. Along the way, Winder earned all-valley honors and honorable-mention all-state accolades. At the club level, Winder played for Avalanche under coaches Jimmie Powell, Daris Christensen and Kit Sadler. Winder helped the club to a national championship and a Presidents Cup title. Winder also earned a pair of letters in track & field in high school. “Talia is a dynamic outside back with strong 1-v-1 defending ability, and very good attacking instincts,” Martins said. “Talia’s ability to play box-to-box will make her an immediate asset.” Attacking midfielder Tess Werts joins the Aggies after lettering at Corner Canyon High School in Draper during her senior year. Werts earned all-state honors and was named her team’s MVP after scoring 11 goals for the Chargers a

The good news: So is Utah State, and as long as USU keeps winning, it doesn’t matter. The Aggies will be in the championship game if they take care of business, and it starts Saturday, 8:30 p.m. at San Jose State. For the better part of the last decade, San Jose State was not much of a threat. The Spartans hadn’t posted a winning conference record since 2013, but anyone paying attention knows that is no longer the case. Last year’s Spartans shocked the conference by not only making it
