Erwin van Bennekom has been named the new head coach of the IU women's soccer program. 

Megan Wampler is transferring to IU women's soccer after spending one season at the University of Dayton.

Wampler will be eligible to play this fall.

Wampler played just 15 minutes in only one of the team's 19 games. She recorded zero stats.

Wampler is a Carmel, Indiana, native and played high school soccer at Guerin Catholic High School. In her four years, she earned a pair of All-State, All-Conference and All-District selections. In her senior season, Wampler received  All-County and All-Region honors and was named Hamilton County Player of the Year. She was also a nominee for the Indianapolis Star Player of the Year in 2017.

With her individual success came team success. Guerin Catholic won its first regional championship since 2010 her senior year, advancing to the state championship. Top Drawer Soccer also gave Wampler All-Region and State Star accolades in 2017.

In addition to high school, Wampler played club soccer for the Indiana Fire Juniors. She helped lead the team to a pair of Elite Clubs National League Playoffs and a top-six national finish during her sophomore season.

Last season, IU women's soccer finished 8-8-2 and missed out on qualifying for the Big Ten Tournament. This season, the Hoosiers will play two exhibition games Aug. 10 and 14 before officially starting the season Aug. 22 against the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
