CHICKASHA – The Drovers went back and forth with Oklahoma Baptist on Tuesday afternoon before taking the final goal to give USAO an important conference win.
With the win, the Drovers (9-6) are now 4-2 in the Sooner Athletic Conference and well on their way to another conference tournament.
It didn’t take long for the scoring to get underway. OBU’s Elisa Brito scored a goal just eight minutes into the game. Just before the 20-minute mark, freshman Vanessa Yates tied it up off an assist by senior Calli Cooper.
CHICKASHA – Albert Loveless, Jr., may have been the epitome of an interdisciplinary studies student at USAO in the mid-1990s. Loveless, an art student turned athlete, ran cross country for the Drovers in 1994, competing both seasons of the sport.
Now, using his art degree and a business sense, Loveless is the owner and operator of AllStar Screen Printing in Piedmont.
“I decided to start my own business and I didn’t think it would last more than a couple of months,” Loveless joked. “But almost 10 years later, I’m still going at it, and it’s growing every year.”
