Another school year is winding down here on the greatest campus in the whole world, and it certainly has been a very exciting year for Loyola Athletics! Recently there has been a lot of buzz regarding our move to the Missouri Valley Conference. As sad as it is to be leaving the Horizon League, I cannot wait for next year! There will be a lot better competition, and we will be hosting the Wichita State Shockers who made it to the Final Four this season! It is going to be very exciting! I hope the other mascots are friendly and open to welcoming me into the conference!
As exciting as next year will be, thankfully we still have some time left in this season. I don’t even know how to describe how excited I am for our track and field team — They continue to break their own school records and gain recognition nationally, which is kind of awesome! Our men’s volleyball team won easily Friday, April 19 in the MIVA quarterfinals against Quincy. They will be playing the Semi-Finals at home on Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Ball State. It should be a very entertaining match to watch! Both teams are playing very well right now, and I cannot contain my excitement! Softball is currently a half game behind UIC for first place in the conference. Both soccer teams have been playing spring games recently and have been kicking their opponents off the field with their mad skills! That pretty much covers everything going on right now! I hope to see you all at upcoming home sporting events, particularly the volleyball match on Wednesday, April 24!
As always, don’t be a stranger! You know I like high fives!
Onward to victory Loyola U!
