OLLU soccer teams entering conference tourney with high expectations
The women's and men's soccer programs have stormed through the regular season, and enter the conference tournament primed to bring home some hardware. The men open the postseason as the conference's third seed after posting a 6-2-1 record in conference play and finishing the regular season 10-5-2 overall. "We have a big group of very hard workers," said sophomore midfielder and team captain Noberto Lira. "To win this conference tournament, we just have to keep our confidence up, keep our shape and form, and we should be fine." It's the sixth time the program has won the regular season conference title in the last eight seasons, and they've qualified for the postseason in nine of the last 11.
