August 24th, 2006

After completing a 16-day trip to Africa just three days ago, the #3 Westmont Warriors opened the season with a 1-0 victory over #4 Simon Fraser (B.C.) at the Cavalier Holiday Inn Classic in Portland, Oregon.

“We showed some tired legs after our trip,” acknowledged head coach Rebecca Mouw. “But I am very proud of how our players stepped it up and pressured the ball all over the field. The team did a great job of maintaining possession and getting into a position to score.”


Warriors Enter 2006 Season with Small Squad, Big Heart

August 23rd, 2006

A lean and trim squad will be featured in the 2006 edition of Westmont men’s soccer. Not that the individual players are small, but the roster will feature only 17 names.

“It certainly is not ideal,” said head coach Dave Wolf. “We are three to five players short of where we would like to be. We lost eleven players from last year’s team, nine to graduation. That is a big turn around.

Africa – Day 13 – The Final Report

August 19th, 2006

The Westmont women’s soccer team spent the final full day of their tour of Africa in Nairobi, Kenya where they played the Mathare Women’s Football Club in the fourth game of the trip.

“This was by far the most physical team that we played,” said Mouw. “So it was good to see our players step it up and do well. We scored a goal in the final five minutes to get a 1-0 victory. Anna Gropp had a free kick and either Jane (Wyche) or Jessica (Schoepke) scored after the goalkeeper babbled the ball. Even the players aren’t sure who actually scored the goal.”

Africa – Day 12

August 18th, 2006

In their twelfth day in Africa, the Warriors found themselves waking up in Nairobi, Kenya for the first time.

The day began with the team conducting a clinic for kids at a soccer field in the Mathare slums. Originally planned for just girls, more than 100 girls and boys participated in the event.

Crawford Resigns as Baseball Coach

August 18th, 2006

Citing family reasons, Rob Crawford has resigned his position as head coach of the Westmont Baseball program. Crawford took over the Warrior program at the beginning of the 2003-04 school year.

Crawford is known for engaging the team in community outreach. In the fall of 2004, Crawford organized a series of weekly training camps in which players from the Warriors’ squad worked with kids from the PONY League on their baseball skills. He also organized team trips to Mexico in which he and the players visited with children at an orphanage and constructed homes.

Africa – Day 11

August 17th, 2006

The Westmont women’s soccer team spent most of today traveling as they continued their trip through Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. This morning, the Warriors departed Kigali, Rwanda on a plane bound for Nairobi, Kenya.

Before boarding the plane, the Warriors said goodbye to members of the Good News Team which had been traveling with them throughout Uganda and Rwanda.

“The Good News Team players were simply wonderful,” said head coach Rebecca Mouw. “They were so faithful and we are thankful for our time with them.”

Africa – Day 10

August 16th, 2006

Westmont women’s socer team played to a 1-1 tie today with the Rwandan National Team in Kigali. Senior midfielder Anna Gropp scored on a penalty kick for the Warriors after junior midfielder Brianna Russo was tripped in the box.

“When we arrived at the field, another game was already going on,” said Warrior head coach Rebecca Mouw. “The mayor of Kigali scheduled a different game without telling anyone, so we had to move to another field. Unfortunately the field we played on was mostly soft dirt which flew up every time you stepped. That was not a surface conducive to our style of play.”
