A couple weeks back there was a thread that no fall sports would make the NCAA tournament for the first time in years. I definitely agreed.

 

All the sudden women’s soccer has upset No. 2 Stanford and finds themselves in the Sweet 16. The tradition carries on!

 

Go Broncos!

Hoping for a Thanksgiving Miracle Trifecta

It’s like we’re a Power 5 school. 

 

Would be cool to beat all 3 of these teams.

I’ll take 1/3 to be honest. 2/3 would be a blast. I’m not even thinking about 3/3.

Sadly the women’s soccer team lost 1-0 this morning at gtown. They had 3 golden opportunities to score. 2 of them in the final 3 minutes to tie it up. But the big chance was early in the second half when our forward put a shot on an open goal wide.

Would have been exciting to make it to San Jose for the final 4, but as the announcers said: this team is young and can make more noise in the years to come. Congrats on a great season and an incredible run!

This program continues to produce over the last 20+ years. And with the redone stadium and hall of fame, it’s probably safe to say they will continue to be a staple in women’s soccer.

Amen to that.  Keep the funding and coaching for the program and it’s great that the  facilities were improved.  Think about it, a program that has consistently been good and that we are disappointed not to be in the final four.  Something all opportunity programs can try to emulate.  I do think Womens Volleyball has shown similiar results and an injury to our setter this year was major reason for decline after  fast start.  Men’s soccer is disappointing.  I have hope for men’s BB but it will take a couple of years of recruiting to bring us up a level to seriously compete with the likes of Gonzaga, SMC, and BYU.  Womens BB is questionable as the new coach inherited an experienced winning team and the loss to SJS is very discouraging.  Not sure about his hire, always thought a good woman coach would be preferable.
