Maroon Recap


Written by Kaelyn Spickler

Women’s Soccer: The threat of Hurricane Florence coming our way, caused the Lady Maroons’ game to get postponed. This, however, did not stop the ladies from working hard. “We had a run on Saturday morning at the indoor track, and Monday we were able to practice on the turf,” said freshman Emma Woods said. The ladies are excited to be back in action on Sunday, September 23 at Virginia Wesleyan.

Men’s Soccer: The Maroons came out ready to play Wednesday night against Southern Virginia after a week off from games. The team used that built up energy to break a Roanoke College record for the most goals scored in one game. With 12 goals scored, the team was unstoppable. Wish the team luck as they travel to Randolph on Saturday, September 22.

Field Hockey: Our field hockey team had an outstanding win against Denison last Saturday and like many of the other RC sports teams, have had to postpone their games. The women did not let the rain stop them, as they have still been practicing to ensure their win streak continues. Come out and support the team this Saturday, September 22 at 1:00 p.m. as they take on Frostburg State.

Volleyball: The volleyball team was in action on Tuesday night at Emory and Henry where the women secured another 3-0 victory increasing their overall record to 7-4 and in the conference 1-1. The ladies have a busy week ahead of them and will be in action at home on Wednesday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. against Guilford.

Men’s Golf: The men’s golf team had their first match on September 10 where they placed 12th, and have since been busy practicing- even through the rain. “We practiced inside over the weekend, to get geared up for the tournament next week,” said senior Staley Cavey. The Tom Kinder Tournament will be held at Lakeview in Harrisonburg, Va. on Monday, September 24- Tuesday, September 25.

Men’s and Women’s Cross Country: Our cross country teams beat the rain last Friday, September 14 as they headed to Virginia Tech for the Alumni Invite. The Lady Maroons placed the while the men places 6th, and both teams placed 2nd of the Division III schools. Both teams will head to Lehigh University in Bethleham, Pa. next Saturday, September 29 for the Paul Short Run.
