SOCCER | The soccer team defeated #25 Denver in an exhibition game last Friday, 1-0, which is great, because the team actually opens up their season this Friday at New Mexico. Go Wreck 'Em ladies!

If you need to learn about the soccer team, the official site has released a handy-dandy media guide. You should also note that sophomore Janine Beckie was named a MAC Hermann Trophy Candidate, which is the highest individual award in the sport. That's impressive and is only one of 31 candidates. Congrats!
