Re: BW Commissioner's Cup
Wasn't a shot at our hall of fame tennis coach, just an observation in regards to commissioners cup and this years result. Jenny will probably be first to tell you she is disappointed at not dominating the Big West.
Other schools have built brand new Tennis complexes, and were not fully funded for years scholarship wise. Now they are, and can afford to go international.
Tennis is a small roster sport, one donor or player can make a huge difference. Jenny has kept us on top for a long time, and I'm grateful for all she has brought to our university.
if it wasn't for the coach and a very few donors we would be at the bottom -- school give her very little $$$ -- all around she has been the most successful year in and year out coach at lbst
Tennis is being challenged by better resources at other schools now.
Soccer and WWP could be higher.
WVB is sad, hopefully better days ahead with our prodigal son coming back.
Track on Men should be top 3, chance at 1st but Fullerton will be tough. Women probably could be the same but are much thinner so could drop lower.
Disappointing to see Tennis 8th. We are usually in the top 3 each year.
Baseball it likely to finish higher than 8th as they play bottom teams Bakersfield and UCD along with Fullerton St.
I think this is better showing than the past couple of years.
MXC - 5th
WXC - 6th
MBB - 1st
WBB - 3rd
Baseball - 8th
Softball - tied for 1st
Mgolf - 2nd
Tennis - 8th
MVB - 1st
WVB - 6th
Soccer - 5th
WWP - 5th
WBVB - 1st
WT - this weekend
MT - this weekend
I would like to see up bring some of those 5th and 6th up to 3rd in future. It would be my goal to have 80% of the programs finish in the top 3 of the conference. Too bad Men's Water Polo doesn't count.
