It’s December, which means it’s officially time for winter sports. Our teams were off for most of last week like the rest of us, but here are the results from the week before to get you caught up.

Also, a huge shout-out to Men’s Soccer. They finished their stunning season on November 23rd, when they fell to the OWU’s Battling Bishops in the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA championships. The Lords had 18 wins this season, which ties their win record set in 1996 and is the most wins they’ve ever earned under current Head Coach Chris Brown. Congratulations!
