Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
August 30, 2012

Schreiner Community, welcome back for the 2012-13 academic year. We've missed you and are looking forward to an exciting year.

For our fall sports student-athletes, we jump right into the regular season this Friday and Saturday. As you'll see below, our soccer teams start of home competition on Friday afternoon with a pair of non-conference matches at Mountaineer Field and will do the same again on Saturday afternoon. For our volleyball team, the season starts in Kingsville this weekend at a tournament filled with scholarship programs. Both of our cross country teams also begin their fall season with a race in Abilene on Saturday morning.

In early September, our tennis and golf teams will also have regular season contests. In mid-October, our basketball teams take to the floor for the first time but wait until early November for their first "real" games. Baseball and softball have limited fall seasons getting ready for their season debut early in 2013.

I will do my best to keep you updated on how our teams are doing as we move through the academic year. In addition to quick recaps of what took place the week prior, I'll try to give you advance notice of what each team has in store for the week ahead. Our student-athletes are (for the fall sports, and will be for those sports starting later) working hard to represent Schreiner well on the fields of competition and we encourage you to come out and watch (and cheer for) these outstanding young men and women as they compete. All home contests are free to all to attend.
