Utah Non-Revenue Sports Update

New, 1 comment

Football always takes center stage in the fall, but there are other compelling intercollegiate sports happening on campus as well. Women's soccer, Women's Volleyball, and Women's Cross Country are all in full swing. We want to catch you up on the 'other' sports up on The Hill right now.

Women's Soccer is 3-2-1 on the season with three more matches until they begin Pac 12 Conference play. They started off the season with a win at Marquette, a tie at DePaul, defeated Houston and lost to Cal State Fullerton at home. They traveled to Provo and lost to BYU 2-0, but rebounded nicely at San Diego 2-0. Their next match is Friday, September 11 at Boise St. Utah's Lindsay Luke was named Pac 12 Goalkeeper of the week for her two shutouts between the pipes at Marquette and DePaul.

Utah Volleyball team started off 2015 well so far, with a 5-2 record. They played host for the Utah Classic, in which they defeated Idaho State and Cal State Northridge, but fell 3-1 to Lipscolm. They then traveled to Logan and defeated the Utah State Aggies 3-1, and then they on to Spokane, WA and the Gonzaga Invitational. They defeated Montana and host Gonzaga, but lost to Wyoming 3-1. Now they are off to Kentucky this weekend where they will participate in the Louisville/Active Ankle Challenge. They will take on host Louisville on Friday, and Ohio and Seton Hall Saturday.

Women's Cross Country opened up their year, finishing second at the Utah State Open in Logan. "It was a very good day," Utah head coach Kyle Kepler said. "I thought that everyone gave great efforts and I think that we will keep getting better and stronger as the season moves forward. We probably had a few kids be a little bit too aggressive at the beginning, but I am not going to fault anybody for being too aggressive and excited."  The Utes had great performances by senior Susannah Hurst Spencer who finished third, Joselyn Todd who finished sixth, and Dana Snell who finished ninth.
