Ex-Lady Bulldog standout Jessica Brandner enters her second season as an assistant for the Union College women's soccer program.
Brandner entered the coaching ranks after a four-year career on the women's soccer team at UC.
In her senior campaign of 2010, Brandner was named to the All-AAC second team as a defender, and also earned a spot on the All-AAC academic team for her work in the classroom. She started in each of Union's 19 matches on the year, pacing a defensive unit that gave up just 25 goals on the year.
Brandner was also a member of the 2009 Lady Bulldog squad that captured the AAC Regular and Conference Championship, advancing to the NAIA National Championship. She was also a first team All-AAC defender, and scored the lone goal of her career during the season.
