A brief snapshot of each program:

Fall Sports

Women's Volleyball

Coach Madeleine Halford finished up her 2nd year in the reboot phase of the volleyball program at the end of the Fall 2019 season. Women's Volleyball, discontinued in 2010, was restarted with the Fall 2018 season. After finishing the 2018 season with only 2 wins, Coach Halford lead a drastic turnaround into year 2, finishing with 17 wins and a spot in the Region 24-A championship match. Coach earned Co-Coach of the Year honors in the MWAC and JWCC has been represented on All-Conference and All-Region teams both seasons.

Women's Soccer

Coach Hayley Womack was charged to lead the start of women's soccer on our campus going into the Fall 2018 season. Going from zero wins in year 1 to 2 wins in the 2nd year, including the program's first conference win, the program is building the right foundation moving forward.

Men's Soccer

Coach Bob Cowman was asked to lead the restart of the men's soccer program, a program that had been discontinued after the Fall 1993 season, heading into the Fall of 2018. After blistering out to a 7-0 start in season one, men's soccer has been on the cusp of national attention throughout both seasons. With an improved, more challenging schedule, men's soccer is gaining the reputation of a team that is willing to play some of the best programs in the country. With representation on the All-MWAC and All-Region teams both seasons (including the 2019 Co-Freshman of the Year), men's soccer is establishing a foundation of success moving forward.
