Blue-Gray Soccer Scrimmage Set For 7 PM Saturday

Aug. 10, 2012

All Rice fans are invited to the soccer program's Blue-Gray scrimmage set for August 11 (Saturday) at 7 pm.

The Owls return 18 letterwinners, including nine starters, from last season. A year ago the Blue & Gray finished 10-7-4 overall and tied for sixth place in the C-USA standings. Rice won its opening-round game in the C-USA Tournament and tied UTEP, 0-0, in the semifinal round. On a recent vote of the C-USA head coaches the Owl trio of Lauren LaGro, Jessica Howard and Quinney Truong were picked as preseason all-conference honorees.

The scrimmage will feature some small format changes from a traditional soccer game. Fans can expect team lineups and players to cross-over in preparation for next week's official season-opener. Rice kicks-off the 2012 soccer season at home on Aug. 17 against national power Baylor at 7 pm.
