Well looks like none are the Fall Sports teams are going to be very good. All of them so far are off to disappointing starts. Hopefully things will turn around once conference play starts.

I know Cross Country is a fall sport also, but they don't really have a won-loss record.

Well, not a won-loss, but they definitely look the be the cream of the Western crop with multiple top-10 finishes, personal bests, etc. among fairly large fields.

Men's soccer not what it used to be. Go ahead and try to convince me it has nothing to do with Dr. J wearing both HC hats. Be forewarned. I am a tough sell.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I will agree with you, seems like the men's soccer program has gone down since he has taken on the women's program.

The women's soccer team did get a nice win yesterday when they defeated UNI

Seems to me that all of our sports are heavy with MVC and Horizon teams which to me makes a whole lot of sense. Lets just see how everything shakes out at the end of the fall! Have to think that a football building would have a great effect on all the sports, not just football and track and field. Sure would be great to have lights for Baseball, Softball, and Soccer too. Lights for Soccer has got to be EJ's perfect dream. Women's assistant soccer coach is very very capable. ;) jc

Women's Soccer won again today, beating Purdue Fort Wayne 2-0.

They are now 6-5-1 overall and 2-0-0 in the conference.
