Club Sports signing off

With the end of term comes the end of fall sports

The trees no longer have leaves, the ground has been covered by drops of rain and specks of snow — the time for fall Club Sports has come to a close. Quite the season the Wolves had, with titles battled for, championships that were held at home, new faces that joined the teams and outcomes that were never expected.

Men’s Rugby entered fall with a lot of seniors gone, first-years and transfers and the team having to step up to fill any gaps — this didn’t seem to have fazed the team, with everyone working cohesively to find a way to win. The team showed for many exciting games for the spectators and proved themselves to be a tight-knit squad. Their overall record was 5-1, losing their final game during the Championship match against Oregon Institute of Technology. Though Men’s Rugby wasn’t able to bring home the Championship, they did not disappoint.

Women’s Club Soccer came into this season with high expectations and a large target on their backs — being the 2018 Small School Division Champions. The season began with the hardest team in their league, University of Oregon – Gold, a fresh team with a solid mix of returners and new additions. Throughout their season, they were unable to find a way to bring home wins, with consecutive ties that finished each match. Before their season was complete, they headed down to Texas where they played in the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association tournament — where they played against schools five times larger than them. 

Men’s Club Soccer had a filling season — starting off on the wrong foot, but finished strong on the right, to bring home a championship from the Cascade Collegiate Soccer League 2nd Division, or CCSL. The team continued to stay positive all season long, which in turn helped them finish on a high note. Men’s Club Soccer held their defense tight and organized, while their offense took advantage of multiple plays to finish the ball in their opponents net.

Yes, these teams’ seasons are done, but they will have more games come winter. Along with them: Women’s Rugby, Men’s Basketball, Men’s Lacrosse and Rock Climbing. The Dance Team will also be performing at the Varsity Men’s Basketball home games.

Stay tuned come this winter for the Club Sports schedule.
