As fall sports come to an end and winter sports are about to get into the full swing of things, no better time exists for a fall roundup. 

Women’s soccer

The IU South Bend women’s soccer team currently sits at 3-12-1 with one final showdown on the road at Judson University in Elgin, Ill. 

Soccer this year had the best start in program history, winning three of their first five games. 

Senior forward Katie Jones leads the way for the Titans this season with seven goals in 13 games played. Sophomores Haylie Rodriguez and Alessandro Lozano follow behind with two goals a piece with many others contributing a goal. 

Unfortunately, the Titans will miss out on postseason play. With a very young team, it seems likely that the 2024 Titans will build upon the history they have broken this year.

Volleyball

The IU South Bend volleyball team currently has a 5-20 record with two more games left to play on the road against St. Ambrose University and Roosevelt University. 

The Titans have picked up play as of late, sweeping the season series against conference foe St. Xavier University in three straight sets on Oct. 24. They kept the hot streak going as they were able to take care of the Trinity Christian Trolls in five sets on Oct. 26. 

The Titans have been led by seniors Abby Seeger, Alexis Joyner and Felisha Campanello who have combined for 469 kills so far this season. They are eager to add more as they look to finish the season strong. 

Sophomore libero Sydney Hanna leads both the team and the conference in digs this year with a staggering 430, outpacing the second in the conference by 30 digs.

Macy Sherman has also been a standout, playing in a utility role with 110 kills and 212 digs. 

Junior Ryleigh Grott has played a key role for the Titans, smashing home 180 kills

The upcoming games against St. Ambrose and Roosevelt are vital for the Titans in order to keep the postseason hopes alive. With wins in the final two, the Titans may be able to make a late season push and secure themselves a spot in the CCAC tournament where anything can happen.
