Cross Country Opens With the Bearcat Open on Saturday

Sept. 6, 2010

This Week in Bearcat Athletics

Volleyball heads to Texas for a tournament, Bearcat soccer plays a pair of road matches and cross country and golf open up their seasons this week in Bearcat athletics.

The Northwest Missouri State volleyball team will travel to Austin, Texas for the St. Edward's Tournament this weekend. Northwest is coming off a 2-2 split last weekend at the UNO Showcase.

The Bearcats will face Abilene Christian and St. Edward's on Friday afternoon and will end the tournament with Dallas Baptist and Texas A&M-Kingsville on Saturday.

Northwest soccer will be looking for its first victory of the season when they begin MIAA play this week. The Bearcats will travel to Truman on Thursday and will play at Missouri Western on Saturday afternoon.

Northwest lost its season opener 1-0 against Newman last Friday and played to a 1-1 draw with Northeastern State on Sunday at Bearcat Pitch. Hannah Silvey scored her first career goal as a Bearcat in the tie. Northwest split with Missouri Western last season, with each team winning at home and lost both matches against Truman in 2009.

Cross Country opens its 2010 year at home for the Bearcat Open on Saturday. It will be Northwest's only home meet this season in its five-meet regular season schedule. The Bearcat women are ranked 22nd in the preseason USTFCCCA poll.

Bearcat golf travels to Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday and Friday for the Iowa Western River Fall Classic at the Bent Tree Golf Course. Northwest has three seniors on this year's squad in Lauren Atkinson, Jessica Feuerbach and Erin Luchtel.

Northwest will play in seven meets this fall, including the Bearcat Fall Golf Classic on October 7-8.

Football has a bye week this Saturday and will return to action Sept. 18 when they travel to Nebraska-Omaha. Northwest tennis is also off this week. The Bearcat women will travel to the Truman Tournament next Friday.
