Men's track looks to improve all-around in 2012

(01/12/12 12:00am)

While the 2011 men's track season was filled with the usual ups and downs, one thing that Head Coach Jon Warren and his team could take away from last year was the ability of the team to improve drastically from the indoor to the outdoor season, as evidenced by their sixth-place finish at the Conference USA Indoor Championship and a fourth-place finish at the C-USA Outdoor Championship. With the majority of their main scorers heading back to the track for Rice, the Owls are looking toward 2012 as a season with plenty of promise.





Cross country ends season on high note

(11/17/11 12:00am)

It was a tale of two meets for the men's and women's cross country teams at the NCAA South Central Regional held last Saturday in Waco, Texas. On one hand, the women's team fully expected to place among the top three to four teams and have a chance at an at-large bid to the NCAA Championship Meet on Monday, while the men were just hoping to crack the top 10. Unfortunately, the women were on the outside looking in, finishing one point out of fourth place, while the men's sixth-place finish came as somewhat of a surprise considering the team's tough Conference USA Championship meet.




Soccer's season ended by shootout yet again

(11/10/11 12:00am)

Like a losing season for the Washington Redskins, the soccer team's elimination by shootout in the Conference USA tournament seemed inevitable. Last year, Southern Methodist University defeated the Owls 4-2 in a shootout after no goals were scored in 110 minutes. This year, Rice escaped a complete scenario of deja vu by beating the Ponies in overtime. But the shootout defeat finally found the Owls in the semifinals of the tournament, this time at the hands of the University of Texas-El Paso.

Here are the highlights from the Spring 2011 evaluations. Courses with less than 10 responses as well as LPAP, college and graduate-level courses were not included in this analysis. Information is presented as-is and without testing for statistical significance. With that in mind, data may be less accurate for courses with fewer responses.


Soccer gets revenge against SMU in double OT

(11/02/11 12:00am)

After a nearly catastrophic meltdown over a six-game stretch which saw it compile a 1-4-1 record and move from third to seventh in the Conference USA standings, the soccer team righted the ship just in time on Friday, as they tied the University of Houston (6-11-2, 3-6-2 C-USA), 1-1. With a tie, the Owls locked up a spot in the conference tournament.



Cross country has subpar C-USA championship

(11/02/11 12:00am)

While the Conference USA Cross Country championship has been characterized by the expected, 2011 was a different story for Rice, and not for the better. While the women expected to compete for first place and the men expected to finish in second or third, the Owls came away disappointed with their results from Monday's C-USA championship at the Wildcat Golf Club in Houston, Texas.





Soccer loses two on road to C-USA cellar-dwellers

(10/28/11 12:00am)

The match against East Carolina began much like the team's previous match against the University of Southern Mississippi, with Rice scoring very early on, as freshman de fender Lauren Busansky rifled a 30-yard shot into the back of the net just five minutes into the game. Through the first 20 minutes of the game, it appeared as if Rice would be able to hold off the Pirate attack. But the 7-2 shot ad vantage ECU enjoyed in the first half finally came to fruition in the 23rd minute, with Kimmy Cummings taking a pass from Mad die Maurer and shooting it near the lower-left corner of the goal, just out of the reach of freshman goalkeeper Amy Czyz. Four more shots were fired by the Pirates in the first half, with Czyz saving one, while another hit the crossbar. Needless to say, the Owls real ized that the ninth-place Pirates were a force to be reckoned with by the time the whistle blew to end the first half.


Soccer stuck in the middle of C-USA pack

(10/20/11 12:00am)

With just three conference matches remaining, the soccer team is currently looking at possibly missing out on the conference postseason tournament. What started off as a 3-1-0 record in Conference USA action has now devolved into a 4-3-1 record that leaves Rice in a three-way tie for fifth place and, in terms of a berth in the C-USA Championship Tournament, is on the outside looking in.
