USAO to add cross country in 2012

Date Published: 

CHICKASHA – USAO will be adding to its six-sport base in fall of 2012 when it welcomes back cross country after 16 years, giving students a new opportunity to excel.

USAO had several prospective students in the last year ask about a cross country team, which began the discussion, said Dr. Dexter Marble, vice president for academic affairs.

“We thought it would be important to serve prospective students,” Marble said. “The second reason is we felt like we had the necessary resources. It wouldn’t require any special resources.”

Drovers win another two at home

CHICKASHA – The Drover soccer teams continued both their home and their conference success with wins each against Mid-America Christian University on Tuesday afternoon.

The USAO women battled for much of the game, and the teams went into halftime scoreless. It wasn’t until the 57-minute mark when junior Calli Cooper whizzed a goal by MACU’s keeper.

The women held the lead to win it 1-0. Addie Tipton earned the win and shutout after making two saves in the game.

The Drovers outshot their opponents 29-13 in the game.
