GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG women's soccer players Jesse McGinley (Truckee, Calif./Truckee), Rebecca Burrows (Auckland, New Zealand/Mount Albert Grammar School) and Georgia Brown (Dunedin, New Zealand/St. Hilda's Collegaite) have been developing their games for the upcoming 2013 soccer season by playing with the Fredericksburg Impact of the W-League.

The W-League is broken up into four conferences with the UNCG trio playing for the Fredericksburg Impact who plays in the Northeastern Conference. Each team plays 12 games with the last contest ending on July 10. The Impact has played three games so far holding a 0-2-1 record.

Brown, a freshman this fall from New Zealand, has started all three games racking up 252 minutes played with one shot. Burrows has started the last two contests with one shot and will be a freshman for the Spartans this fall. McGinley who already has a season of collegiate soccer under her belt, started in goal last game making four saves to help the Impact earn a 1-1 draw against the New York Magic.

For their efforts last week, Burrows and McGinley were named Honorable Mention on the W-League Team of the Week.

The Impact's next game is home against the Washington Spirit on Monday, May 27 at 5 p.m.
