This Week in AC Athletics, 10/30 - 11/5


Fall sports are in Championships-Mode, #RooNation!  First round action looks to be all Kangaroos vs. Bulldogs in three sports, with Football taking on a familiar rival in a night game this Saturday.

Let’s recap last week’s successes and this weekend’s opportunities in one of the last few Fall Sport Austin College Athletics Update!


Women’s Volleyball

                Senior Night went well for the Women’s Volleyball Team as we paid tribute to 6 seniors on this year’s squad with two victories over Jarvis Christian and Arlington Baptist. Thank you President Steven & Cecelia O’Day for being there to show your support!

And after going 2-1 on the road in non-conference play this weekend, the Kangaroos locked up the #5-seed in this weekend’s SCAC Conference Tournament in Kerrville, TX.

                AC takes on the #6-seed Texas Lutheran Bulldogs in the first round; a team they faced twice this regular season to 3-0 and 3-1 defeats.  Hopefully the third time is a charm in the SCAC Quarterfinals.  Good luck, ‘Roos!
