CHICKASHA – While it may look like the men’s soccer team at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma is having a rebuilding year, sophomore midfield Liam Madden says it’s just a matter of gelling and refining through hard work.

“We look to improve and just get better each game as we go along,” he said. “We’ve been doing a lot of fitness work, keeping up our general training, our technical work, and just getting the freshmen adjusted to how the Drovers usually work.”
