Greetings on a Friday as the Roadrunners prepare for a weekend of action with both soccer and volleyball competing.
Starting with volleyball the Roadrunners will be at home on Saturday hosting Grand Canyon at 1 P.M. in the Icardo Center. It’s the 25th Anniversary Celebration for the 1989 Division II National Championship team. Come out and meet the team and receive a commemorative poster as well.
That game will also be streamed live on GoRunners.com as well. You can watch via a ‘Runner Zone subscription.
Michelle Crist from the 1989 team and head coach Dave Rubio now at the University of Arizona joined us to talk about that team and Saturday’s event.
Onto soccer, both men’s and women’s teams are on the road this weekend. CSUB men are at UMKC tonight and at Air Force on Sunday. Should be a tough road test right off the bat for Bakersfield in WAC play.
For the women’s team it’s a case of familiarity as they face the same two teams, Utah Valley and Seattle that they played last week. Bakersfield played well in both matches but dropped both at home. They now go on the road seeking their first conference victory of the season.
As we enter October, the basketball seasons have started with practices opening up. The Roadrunner men’s team opened last week then had to take a few days off during the Vice President’s visit to campus which effected practice at the Icardo Center. That being said the ‘Runners are chalked full of new faces but a new toughness in 2014-15.
Have a great weekend!
