Reflections and Notes:

Volleyball qualified for their third straight Conference USA tournament with their weekend results. With two games left before the conference tournament, the Owls currently sit in sixth place in the C-USA standings.

Women’s Soccer:
Senior midfielder Claire Emslie set the program record for goals scored with her 29th career score during last Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to Old Dominion. The tally broke a tie between her and Kelly McGrath, who held the record previously with 28.

With their loss to ODU in the conference tournament, women’s soccer completes their best season in C-USA so far with a 12-8-1 record.

Redshirt junior goalkeeper Sydney Drinkwater had her 603-minute scoreless streak broken during the 21st minute of the Owls’ 2-1 loss to the Monarchs. She had recorded six shutouts in her previous six matches, including five wins.

Football tied a program record Saturday with six fourth down conversions. They were 6-for-7 on the day, including a 22-yard fake punt rush by freshman running back Trey Rodriguez.

Senior defensive back Cre’von LeBlanc picked up his fourth interception of the year last Saturday moving him into a tie for 16th place in the FBS. He leads all players in Conference USA in that category.
