OREM, Utah -- Fans can get their first look at the 2013 Utah Valley University women's soccer team Saturday night as the Wolverines will host a pair of intrasquad exhibitions Saturday night at Clyde Field. The festivities begin at 7 p.m. with the Green & White Game, followed at 8 p.m. by the annual Alumni Game.

Both matches are free to spectators as UVU, picked to finish second in its inaugural WAC season, undergoes its first and only tune-up before the regular season begins at UTEP on Aug. 23.

Notable alumni returning to Clyde Field for Saturday's exhibition include: Regan Benson (2009-12), the 2012 Great West Conference Offensive Player of the Year; Jenni Clough (2005-08), the program's all-time leader in goals scored and assists; Katey Turner (2007-10), the program's second all-time leading goal-scorer; Chelsea Stone (2004-07), a four-year starter during the UVU women's soccer program's formative Division I seasons; and former assistant coach Rachelle Dixon (2006-10), who stood by Brent Anderson's side as his top assistant for five seasons.
