College season is winding down fast as well, so let’s check in with a few folks:
The Mizzou Men’s Soccer Club has qualified for the National Tournament yet again, ensuring they’ll have the opportunity to defend their 2007 NIRSA Open Tournament Champions title. The boys played a 10 game schedule and finished 7-1-1 (the KU game was postponed due to weather) in the regular season. The beat Oklahoma State 2-0 in the Regional Final to reach Nationals which will be November 20-22 in Alabama. Jacob Basecke and Brian Lindsey, both Glendale 2005, are once again part of the squad. There’s a Facebook page for anyone with questions about tryouts and the team.
Maggie Schrier (Glendale 2008) is a forward! And she’s dishing out assists, with two in the Hendrix Warrior’s recent win over Central Baptist. The Warriors (D3, SCAC ) are now 6-7 and have a 2 game winning streak going and four games remaining.
Hendrix will be hosting Birmingham Southern Panthers on November 9th, which will bring Brice Hunt (West Plains 2008) close to home. The Panthers are having a tough year, with a 2-14 record. Brice has played in 15 of the 16 games and will be looking for some home cooking.
Coach Nick Schmitt did a recent update on Zizzer’s in college, including info on Cody Cody Townsend, Logan Ray, Jacob Plocher, Matt Saner, Stuart Ziegler, Clay Trautman and Kyle Martin.
