This Week in AC Athletics, 9/25 - 10/1

This Week in AC Athletics, 9/25 - 10/1

 

                Women’s Tennis was historic this past weekend in Tyler, the Volleyball Team picked up its first two wins of the SCAC season, Women’s Soccer moved to 2-2 in conference play, and Men’s Soccer picked up a huge road point in the conference standings.  Safe to say that it was a great weekend for our Athletics Teams, #RooNation.

On a side note, all of you came out to support our Hurricane Roo-lief Initiative should be commended for your support.  We were able to raise $1,614.00 for residents and families that have been affected by the recent natural disasters, and we could not be prouder of #RooNation for their contributions to the cause.

                We have five (5) Home Soccer games and a big SAA Football game this weekend, so let’s get started recapping last weekend results and sharing start times for this weekend’s home events in the AC Athletics Update!
