Aggie Soccer Earns 100th Win!

Congratulations to all former and current coaches and players of the Utah State Women's Soccer program for earning 100 wins in the program's history! Coach Heather Cairns and the 2009 Aggies beat Houston Baptist 5-1 on Sunday in Houston to earn the program its 100th win. All who have participated in Aggie Soccer has contributed to this great feat! Congratulations!

The girls decided to form a "100!" in celebration of the 100th win and to congratulate the program!

"Humid Houston and San Antonio" by Molli Merrill and Erin Salmon
We started off the trip bright and early at 5 am Thursday morning. After a lay over in Phoenix we finally arrived in San Antonio Texas. To our surprise it was over cast and rainy unlike the sunny San Antonio we expected. Due to the field being flooded we weren’t able to practice so instead we got to go to the beautiful River Walk in down town where we enjoyed a fun boat ride with a witty tour guide and a yummy dinner along the river. Saturday after a long drive to Houston we practiced and went to a fun Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed dinner with the awesome guitar players who sang la la la la bamba. (also where we celebrated Nano’s “birthday”). After a long day we headed back to the hotel to get some rest. After beating Houston Baptist on Sunday, we hit the showers and headed to the airport where we sadly found out our flight was delayed and now we (as in Molli and Sammie) are writing this for our blog! Hopefully we will get out of Texas someday!

Molli and Sammie!

*The Aggies dropped one to UTSA on Friday night 1-0 but turned it around on Sunday beating Houston Baptist 5-1 with two goals by Shantel Flanary, and goals by Dani Shorts, Ellen Larsen, and Stefani Shiozaki! We came home with an overall record of 4-2-1, as well as with the 100th win for the program! Good job Aggies! Keep up the good work!
