Former Women’s Soccer Standout Schmitz Named to MVC 25-Year Anniversary Team

first_imgST. LOUIS – Former Drake University women’s soccer standout Andrea Schmitz has been selected to the Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Soccer 25-Year Anniversary Team, the MVC office announced Thursday, Oct. 19 morning. The 2017-18 season is a landmark one for the MVC and for women’s sports. To help celebrate the 45th anniversary of Title IX and the 25th anniversary of women’s sports, the Valley is naming 25-Year Anniversary Teams throughout 2017-18 for each of the league’s sponsored women’s sports. Schmitz is the most decorated player in program history, beginning her career the same year women’s soccer started at Drake. A four-year starter from 2002-05, she was a four-time All-MVC selection, the 2002 MVC Freshman of the Year and the 2005 MVC Player of the Year. Schmitz graduated as the school record holder in assists (28), goals (32), points (92) and shots (250). Her goals record stood until this season when Rebecca Rodgers broke the mark and currently Rodgers and Schmitz are tied in career points. Schmitz helped Drake win 45 games in her outstanding career. Team composition for each sport has been determined by a 25-person committee (two representatives from each MVC institution and a panel of five voters from the conference office).  The team composition includes years in which league teams competed under the MVC umbrella during the past 25 years (1992-2017) and does not include competition from the current season. The voting panel determined a ‘Top 10’ from a list of 25 finalists. To view the entire team click here. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “He’s a great leader for us.”Though it would be unwise to try to take too much away from just one game, it does appear that the Cardinals’ offense is very much improved from last year. Now, the only question is whether or not that will translate to more wins. – / 27 Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   “Coach Arians’ offense is unbelievable,” Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald told ESPN’s SportsCenter Tuesday. “He has so many different ideas and formations, and puts guys in position to have success.”Fitz himself had an outstanding day, catching eight passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns, but Andre Roberts (8 catches, 97 yards) and Michael Floyd (four catches, 82 yards) also got in on the fun. In all, eight different Cardinals caught a pass. “He knows what guys’ strengths are,” Fitzgerald added. “He’s going to put you in position to go out there and play at your best and play fast.”Arians’ play-calling aside, it’s tough to see the Cardinals being as effective without the change at quarterback. While the veteran did throw an interception, he was on target much of the day and showed why the team acquired him from the Oakland Raiders.“It’s great to have that stabilizing figure at the quarterback position,” Fitzgerald said, adding Palmer brings a calming presence to the huddle. “He’s poised, and to have that, you know you have an opportunity to go out there and have success every single Sunday. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The Arizona Cardinals did not win their season opener, but that does not mean the afternoon was a total loss.Sure, the team has every reason to be disappointed in the 27-24 loss to the St. Louis Rams, but there were some positives to take away from the game, especially on the offensive side of the ball.New quarterback Carson Palmer looked sharp running new coach Bruce Arians’ offense, and the Cardinals piled up 390 yards of total offense against one of the better defenses in the league.
