Cougars’ successes bring promising outlook
October 19, 2014
The world of sports had some big moments this past week and plenty more are on the way as all of Houston’s athletes are keeping busy this coming week.
- The Houston football team earned a pivotal victory against AAC opponent Temple Friday night as the strength of the defense, nabbing three interceptions and a fumble. The continued success of sophomore quarterback Greg Ward Jr. kept the team on track to a final score of 31-10. Although players have changed between last season and now, the Cougar defense remains strong, a promising sign for the remainder of the season.
- For the volleyball team, Sunday’s game against Connecticut was essential to the Cougars’ success going into the rest of the season as they snapped their five-game losing streak against a top AAC contender. Habitual defensive strength from senior libero Natalie Keck and offensive prowess of redshirt junior hitter Kadi Kullerkann are keeping the Cougars in the game amid a worrisome conference.
- Cougar soccer has had a bit of a rough season, as they’ve only picked up one win. The team can still compete with the top AAC opponents, despite its record, as they’ve ended six games in ties. The team now faces their final two home games this coming weekend.”
