“Nate brings a level of experience that a lot of folks do not have in this region, and that’s extensive competitive indoor minutes. Nate’s been with the club a long time and has had success going against the top teams in the WISL through the years. Excited to see Nate’s team come November when league play begins” from the Artesians front office, Ryan Perkins.
