Last weekend was a successful one for the Jets. The women’s soccer team went 1-1, including a 3-2, come-from-behind win at Texas A&M International Sunday in Laredo, Texas. Amanda Knabe scored three goals over the weekend, and was honored as the Heartland Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week. The Jets volleyball program also picked up its first Heartland Conference win of the season, sweeping Texas A&M International, 3-0, Saturday at Fugate Gymnasium. Freshmen Jeana Farruggia and Sarah Bailey led the Jets with 11 kills. While the men’s soccer team was unable to notch a win last weekend, they did battle 11th-ranked Truman State to a 0-0 tie after two overtimes. James Esquivel picked up eight saves in the tie. The Jets men’s soccer team has not lost to a nationally-ranked team this season.
Freshman Linzi Allan made history for the Newman women’s golf team, leading the Jets to a fourth-place finish at the Lady Buff Stampede in Canyon, Texas, earlier this week. Allan shot the best round of the entire tournament, a 72 (+1), and now owns Newman’s lowest single round score since the Jets made the transition to NCAA Div. II. Allan ended up tying for first place in the event. The men’s golf team also picked up a fourth-place finish at the Bruce Williams Invitational in San Antonio. Ed Herzog finished tied for fifth in the event to lead the Jets.
The Jets face a full slate of action this weekend. It all kicks off Friday at 7 p.m. when the women’s soccer team hosts the St. Mary’s Rattlers under the lights at Wilkins Field. Sunday, the Jets are back in action against the St. Edward’s Hilltoppers at 1 p.m., while the Newman men’s soccer team will host the Northeastern State Riverhawks in a 3 p.m. tilt. Both games will be played at Wilkins Field, and both games are free to attend for Newman students, faculty, and staff with a Newman ID.
