  • The San Jose State offense saw major strides in their lone exhibition match of the 2021 season. The Spartans won by a final of 2-0 over Sacramento State, attempting 21 shots, including 10 on-goal, with six players putting up multiple scoring chances.
  • The Spartans made nine additions to their roster in the offseason. Junior college transfer Kiana Miyazato joins the ranks after leading Phoenix College to the NJCAA Division II National Title.
