WKU Notes

The fun part begins for the Western Kentucky University soccer team. For the past few weeks they’ve been getting ready for Sun Belt Conference play, which starts later this week.
The ‘Toppers picked up their fifth win of the season Saturday night with a 1-0 win over Belmont. No Elvis wasn’t in the crowd, but both teams played in their own version of Kentucky Rain.
Junior Andrea Curry scored her first career goal in the 38th minute, in fact it was the only goal of the night. It was the second time this season that Curry has been part of a game-winning goal after recording an assist on a winning goal against Bowling Green earlier this season.
“It felt really good,” said Curry. “I was happy to put the team in a better position to win tonight.”wku
Curry played just 45 minutes and her availablity for the game was in question due to sickness.
“She played the entire first half for us and just didn’t have the energy to go in the second half,” said head coach Jason Neidell. “That was her first career goal and what a great, timely goal it was for us.”
WKU continued to have the hot feet as they outshot the Bruins 26-5 for the enitre game.
WKU has a few days to get ready for league play when Arkansas State comes to town on Friday.
WKU Golf
The WKU Women’s Golf team gets back into action this week. The Lady Toppers travel to Waynesville,NC for the 14th Great Smokies Intercollegiate. The two-round event starts Monday and ends Tuesday.
With four freshman or sophomores in the lineup, WKU Women’s Golf finished in seventh place at their opening tournament of the year, the Chris Banister Gamecock Classic. It marked the highest WKU finish in a tournament since March 18-20 at the MSU Ocala Spring Invitational in Ocala, Fla. when the Lady Toppers also finished seventh.
