Soccer faces Arkansas State after strong non-conference season


After finishing 5-3-1 in non-conference play, the Texas State soccer team is fixing the flaws in its game to prepare for the start of Sun Belt Conference play this weekend. 

Texas State has already shown improvement from last season, as the Bobcats were 3-5-1 going into their first year of the Sun Belt Conference.

Coach Kat Conner believes the team had a solid non-conference season, but losses to Texas Christian, UTSA and Texas showed Texas State still has room for improvement.

“For conference play we are going to continue making our attacks as quick as we can and finishing,” Conner said. “We get a lot of good looks, but we aren’t finishing. Defensively, we are trying to make sure we work together better as a unit instead of individually.”

Beyond the Game: Elizabeth Havenhill


It was another hot summer day in Dallas, Texas when the annual Vans Warped Tour was in town at the Gexa Energy Pavilion.

At the Kia Soul Stage the alternative rock group Yellowcard played their 2003 hit single “Oceans Avenue.”

Elizabeth Havenhill, freshman defender, could be spotted crowd surfing above the hundreds of screaming fans in attendance. Havenhill was enjoying one of her most anticipated events of the summer.

“I had to do it for them,” Havenhill said. “They are so good. I had been waiting all year for this one full-day concert.”

Spending time with family and friends and attending the tour is Havenhill’s way of enjoying her summer. One of her most memorable moments came in the summer of 2013 when she crowd surfed for the first time.
