RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

The way we have been practicing. Everybody has been putting in the work everyday. Even out of practice, there has been tremendous effort to work on their skills.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

On putting it all together. Linking the defense, midfield and attack together to make our transition game more effective.

OTHER THAN OUR TEAM, WHO WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT IN YOUR LEAGUE AND WHY

Otterbein and Capital. Both are very well coached and finished at the top of OAC last year.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

This is an exciting year for everybody but especially our seniors. These seniors are the year one guys and have continued to develop through their time at WC. Couldn’t be happier with this group of young men. Looking forward to this 2016 season.
