Women's Soccer

The smoke cleared and the Women’s Soccer team went head-to-head with Weber State over the weekend for their first game of the season. A knockout game on BYU’s behalf, Olivia Wade and Cameron Tucker scored two goals by the three-minute mark, paving the way for the rest of the exhibition game.

The second half wasn’t as quick off the bat, but BYU was on their A-game nonetheless. Bella Folino lead the pack with two goals, with Ashton Johnson sealing the deal with the last goal of the night. With such a landslide win at the beginning of the season, could this be a projection of the months to come?

Football

Fall Camp is Bringing the Heat

BYU Football held their first pre-season scrimmage at LaVell Edwards Stadium over the weekend, with only family and close friends allowed to attend. Despite the smog and heat of the sun, Kalani Sitake said, “Overall, I thought we got everything we needed.”

The scrimmage comes two weeks into Fall Camp, as a starting QB decision is still in the works, and plays are being solidified. With everyone getting ample time on the field over the weekend, BYU is forecast to have a great season ahead as they fine tune their skills. Want to stay up to date?
