MUSTANG SOCCER COMPLETES FIRST WEEK OF ACTION
The 2012 fall sports campaign began with feature match-ups against a pair of NCAA Division I opponents for our soccer programs. On Friday, the men’s soccer team traveled to Kalamazoo to take on mighty Western Michigan University. The road tilt against the heavily-favored Broncos ended in a 4-0 decision for the home team. The Mustangs fought hard and nearly notched a couple of goals against the D1 counterpart. Also on Friday, the women’s soccer team made the short trek to face the Titans of University of Detroit-Mercy. The Titans, picked as favorites to win their conference, were frustrated all match by a stellar Mustang defense that only allowed three goals to their favored opponent (Final: UDM 3, Marygrove 0).

HISTORY! MUSTANG VOLLEYBALL STARTS SEASON 2-0 FOR FIRST TIME IN PROGRAM HISTORY
Friday marked plenty of firsts for the volleyball program at Marygrove College. New head coach Jamie Baker coached intercollegiate contest No.1 and made the most of it in her first match with a new team. The team, anchored by four seniors that helped start the program in 2009, was able to help Baker win her first match as a college head coach. After all the action was complete, the Mustangs won both matches to earn a 2-0
record for the first time in program history. Coach Baker will sit down with MARYGROVEMUSTANGS.COM later this week for a recap of Friday’s events.
