So, getting so caught up in the Football team’s success….I have neglected to mention the other sports and I really believe that I have done a disservice to the student athletes who do not play football, with that said, this post is all about them, so lets get to it.
Lady Lion Soccer-
The Lady Lions took back their rightful place on Senior day in Commerce where they took down 19th ranked Angelo State, 1-0. Senior Cadie Arenett shared the sentiments that so many of us have had when we know we are playing our last game at home.
“It’s bittersweet knowing this was my last game, it was kind of sad,” said Cadie Arnett, who had three shots for the Lions on the day, “We (my sister and I) always have a hand shake we do before games, and we were about to do it, and (Callie) said ‘This is the last one at home,’ and that was very depressing. It almost made me want to cry. But I’m glad we won, I liked that.”
That, said, the Ladies will be competing in the LSC Conference tournament and also head to Denton to play Texas Woman’s and then have 3 more games to wrap up the regular season, all on the road against Southern Nazarene, West Texas A&M, and Eastern New Mexico. Conference regular season standings and seeding will all be in play, so this is a crucial stretch for the Lady Lions.
The Men’s team continues to have great season, ranking 8th currently, heading into Friday’s meet at East Central University in Ada, OK. The Women are also having a fine season, notching one victory, one second place meet finish, and an 8th place finish at the University of Arkansas meet that featured 25 teams. The Ladies, like the Men’s team, head to Ada, OK for the East Central Classic meet this Friday.
Sigh. This is one of those years where you just scratch your head and just wonder why. The V-Ball team is really struggling, and what makes this odd is the great season they had last year, and with the great coaching staff they have in HC Craig Case and Assistant HC Sarah Carthel. The Ladies Host Southeastern Oklahoma State tonight at the Fieldhouse, and are hoping to get into the win column. Things can’t do anything but go up from here, in my opinion.
Ok, now this is cool. Check out this live feed of the construction of the Lady Lions Softball complex.
