Texas State lacrosse qualifies for national tournament

By: 

As the playoffs neared, the time came for the Texas State lacrosse team to reach its full potential.

Each play mattered more than the last, and the Bobcats were on a six-game winning streak just before the playoffs.

“Throughout the entire season we would say how much we wanted to peak at the right moment,” said Zane Zoda, junior defenseman. “We started off slow and weren’t executing and winning all the games we should’ve, but when it came time for conference and national playoffs, we were playing our best lacrosse.”

Texas State would go on to win the conference championship against Texas, advancing to the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Nationals in Orange County, California. 

Beyond the game: Millie Saroha, sophomore

In India, women rarely play sports and are expected to do two things—get a good education and help their families around the house.

Millie Saroha, sophomore, follows the strict guidelines for Indian women as well as playing for the Texas State golf team.

“We don’t have a lot of women golfers in India,” Millie said. “I am one of the few, and it has really help me to become better and has given me the opportunities to play golf all around the world.”

India is a family-oriented country with little emphasis on individuality.

Beyond the game: Maty Monzingo, sophomore golfer

Maty Monzingo, sophomore, looked back, and her father was gone. Life as she knew it had changed.

While Monzingo was on the golf range her father, Lynn, was being rushed to the nearest hospital.

“Something wasn’t the same about my dad,” Monzingo said. “I remember he wasn’t able to balance, and when I would ask him a question, he would slur his words. I knew something was wrong.”

Prior to her third shot of the 18th hole, Maty glanced back and watched as Lynn fell to the ground in a fairway.

Maty went back to the green to start her second round of the Jim West Challenge, trying not to stress herself out.

After the tournament, the doctors informed her Lynn was suffering from a stroke.

Men's basketball clinches the eighth seed in Sun Belt Conference Tournmanent

By: 

Eleven seconds remained in regulation with the Texas State men’s basketball team trailing by four points to Louisiana-Monroe.

D.J. Brown, senior guard, converted a layup to bring the deficit to two points with four seconds left. Louisiana-Monroe made one of two free throws, closing the game with a 56-53 victory.

The game told the story of the Bobcats’ season: close, but not enough.

Eleven of the team’s 16 losses have been by fewer than 10 points.

The Bobcats were pushing for a victory to end the regular season coming off a loss against Appalachian State Thursday.

The loss notwithstanding, Texas State enters the Sun Belt Conference tournament as the eighth seed.
