    Club baseball team to face SMU

    The TCU club baseball team will be playing at SMU 2 p.m. Saturday.

    Sophomore Bobby Wilson, the president of the team, said the club is 1-3 on the season so far after playing both North Texas and Texas A&M twice.

    Wilson said the team is well-rounded and has a good mix of players.

    “We’re a young team with a lot of freshmen and sophomores,” he said.

    The team’s goal this season is to establish itself with strong play in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Wilson said.

    Women’s volleyball club travels for conference tournament

    The TCU women’s volleyball club will be playing at the campus of Texas A&M in their conference tournament all day Saturday against teams like A&M, Texas, Baylor and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

    Lyndsie Gregorie, co-captain of the club, said the team is in the Southwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association and only takes a certain number of its members to each tournament.

    The team has gone to six tournaments this year and has improved since the start of the year, Gregorie said.

    “We’re trying to take the team to the next level,” she said. “It’s the last tournament of the season and we’re taking 11 girls to it,” Gregorie said.

    Men’s lacrosse team to face Texas A&M

    The men’s lacrosse team will face Texas A&M at 2 p.m. Sunday at the intramural fields.

    Junior Erik Sandstrom, vice-president and co-captain of the lacrosse club, said that the team’s experience has contributed to the development of the program.

    “Our future looks really bright; we only graduate two seniors this year,” Sandstrom said.

    The first weekend of Spring Break the club beat a nationally ranked Claremont team in California, Sandstrom said.

    Texas A&M is the top team in the conference and is still strong despite suffering injuries early in the season, Sandstrom said.

    The team will wrap its season up against Baylor and Sam Houston within the next two weeks, Sandstrom said.

    Men’s soccer club to play exhibition Sunday

    Although there is no formal game this weekend, the men’s soccer club will be playing at 3:15 Sunday at Rolling Hills Park.

    Sophomore Matthew Smith, the soccer club’s president, said the team is 5-3 in the season.

    Smith said during the spring the team mainly plays against former collegiate soccer players instead of current college clubs.

    The main season comes in the fall when the club plays other university teams like Texas A&M and the University of Texas, Smith said.

    “We have a lot of seniors that are graduating this semester,” he said.

    Smith said he is hoping more freshmen will join the squad next year to add to the club’s core of players.

    The team usually plays 10 to 11 games per season and has two or three games left this year, Smith said.
