Preview to October Games

The heavy game schedule of the Vaqs

As preseason and the beginning of the season have wrapped up for most teams on campus, the middle of the term can sometimes be the hardest. 

At this point as the fall sports comes to an end, it is the last chance for teams to put a stamp on their season and ultimately finish the way they want to be remembered. There are plenty of games left on and off campus to watch our various teams compete 

Football. The team looks to finish the month on a positive note. With only two games remaining in the month. One of those being this 13th of October against Compton. The Vaqs will take full advantage of the situation and will be facing a team that has struggled in the air and has shown no form of a running attack. The Vaqs can take one step forward with a win on Saturday, and can inch closer to leaving a mark on an already strong conference.  

Men and Women’s Cross Country. Both teams have found great success so far this season. Time and time again, the teams have won and placed in top finishes at statewide meets. The women’s team placed first in state and the men’s team ranked fourth in state. There are only four meets remaining on the schedule for both of these strong teams.

Men’s Soccer. The men’s soccer team has had a tough season so far but members are looking to turn it around. With nine remaining games in the season, six of which are played this month, the men’s team will have plenty of room for redemption. A key matchup of the month is against Citrus college, a team that has lost more games than they have won. 

Women’s Soccer. West LA, Santa Monica and LA Valley are all teams the Vaqs face in the upcoming weeks. This will be a true test, since the Lady Vaqs will have faced all three teams a second time by the end of the month. Santa Monica is one of the toughest opponents on the schedule and can not be overlooked.  The women’s soccer team has played very well so far this year and plans on continuing their success.

Women’s Volleyball. Being half way through the season, conference has just begun and the women’s volleyball team have an opportunity to still win some games. The team has struggled on the road this season but could do some damage considering how well they have played at home up to this point. The back end of the schedule has a majority of home games, so look for the team to take full advantage.
