Muskie fall sports, for the win

By Andrew Bush
On October 5, 2012

During my time here at Xavier, I have felt privileged to watch
some talented teams take the field or court. Among those that come to mind are the 2009-10 men's and women's basketball teams and last year's men's team as well. Currently, I believe that Xavier has some incredibly talented teams competing in the fall athletic season. As conference play approaches for the men's and women's soccer team and the volleyball team, there are still great opportunities for fans to come out and support our athletes. Attendance for men's basketball games is extraordinary, as it should be. We are one of the most consistent programs in the last ten years and have proudly decorated Cintas with our banners touting our accomplishments. As one of the more extreme X-Treme fans, I love every minute of the environment at Cintas. A great crowd at a home game helps our team immensely. I dare our students going forward to do a better job of showing up to support our fall sports teams. Our men's soccer team is ranked in the top 20 in two separate polls and arguably might be the best team on campus. Period. Additionally, for any seniors: I urge you to remember the men's soccer team from freshman year. Their improvement has been phenomenal and it is pathetic how little support they receive from students. With three home games coming up in the next two weeks hope that a great amount of Muskies can support these hard working men. I am not discrediting the Xooligans; they do a fantastic job, but students should be filling the stands to the brim with the talent these gentlemen put on the field. Furthermore, I challenge our seniors to remember the women's soccer team from freshman year. Much like the men's team, their improvement has been stupendous. They currently have a winning record and are fighting for a position in the A-10. They finish their regular season with four consecutive home games and I highly encourage students to get out there and fill the stands. They are a fun team to watch that has had a flair for the dramatic so far this year. Increased fan turnout would be great for these ladies moving forward. The volleyball team is an impressive group too. Their record might not be as impressive, but they have played an incredibly challenging schedule and have some huge conference games on the tilt in the future.
This Muskie team is arguably the most talented group I have witnessed take the volleyball court during my time at X.
They have a huge home game today at 7 p.m. against those
pesky Bearcats and a momentous conference battle against Dayton in November that could decide the A-10. This team needs your attendance and I hope that students can come out and support them throughout the rest of the fall. Games are a fun time and it is easy to get great seats up close to the action. I sure hope that students can listen to my suggestions
and turn out to support our fall teams for the duration of their seasons. All of these teams have the potential to win the A-10 in their respective sports this year and fan support would go a long way to making that a reality. I plead with students to go to, take a look at their schedules and try to make an effort to get to a couple games and bring your friends. I promise, you will have a great time cheering on our teams. GO X!
