On Oct. 23- 24, the men’s golf team earned the team trophy at the Chicken Express Open Tournament hosted by Wayland Baptist University. These Crusaders not only walked out with a trophy but also multiple new team records.
In total, there were three team scoring records broken. The men’s golf instagram account, @udallasmgolf, shared:
“The previous UD’s Men’s Gold records for 18, 36 and 54 holes were 280, 573 and 858. Those records were broken by firing a 276 in round 3, 569 in rounds 2-3 and 854 for the tournament.”
The men’s golf team will continue to earn more titles and hopefully break more records with this upcoming spring semester.
On the other side of athletics, the women’s soccer team not only celebrated their senior night with a win from Austin College on Oct. 27 but also earned the final seed spot for the SCAC Conference Championship.
Within the first six minutes of the match, Avery Seaman, senior psychology major and #14, scored the match’s first goal.
According to the press release of UD athletics, “[Seaman] scored a late candidate for goal of the season, hitting a ball for the first time from the top of the box and driving it into the top right corner of the net.”
With a 1-0 lead, the Roos kept the Crusaders back from scoring another goal until the second half. Seaman assisted Claire Reed, a junior biology major and #10, to score.
“Reed’s first shot was stopped by the keeper, but Reed scooped up the rebound and scored to give the Crusaders a 2-0 lead,” UD’s athletic press release stated.
The final score was 2-1. Our Crusaders haven’t competed in the conference championship since 2021. They will be facing the same team that disqualified them from continuing the championships in the past: Trinity University.
This upcoming Thursday, Nov. 2, our Crusaders will head to Houston to face Trinity University once again at the championship. As always, we are giving them our full support knowing that it will be a tough but good game.
