Time for some spring soccer!

TWU soccer head coach Fleur Benatar took a few months off to bring a new addition into her family (Welcome to the world Fletch!).

Coach Benatar is back on the job, however, and she is, to quote, "on a mission" to win the 2009 LSC Soccer crown.

The Pioneers' preparations for the upcoming 2009 campaign will continue this weekend at the Panda Cup in Garland. TWU will play the women's team from the Olympic Development Program (ODP) on Saturday, Apr. 4, at 7 p.m. The Pioneers will then play two games on Sunday, Apr. 5 - at 11:15 a.m. against a Mexican club team and at 3:00 p.m. against Incarnate Word.

The Pioneer players and coaches will also be assisting at a Special Olympics soccer clinic on Saturday afternoon before their contest against the ODP side.

Next Saturday, Apr. 11, TWU will host a 7-on-7 soccer tournament at Pioneer Field. Dallas Baptist, Cedar Valley, and Tyler Junior College will all come to Denton to take part in this event. The round-robin action will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at approximately 6 p.m.

On Saturday, Apr. 18, TWU will travel to St. Edward's in Austin to play in another 7-on-7 tournament.
