Thursday, Nov. 5, 2009, is a date to circle on your calendar or planner if you are a fan of TWU Athletics. Why you ask? Because that was easily one of the best days in the recent history of the Pioneer Nation!
The TWU soccer, volleyball, and basketball teams all competed and all won yesterday. The Pioneer soccer team (pictured) defeated Texas A&M-Commerce in penalty kicks (4-1) in a quarterfinal game at the 2009 Lone Star Conference Soccer Championship. The T-Dub volleyballers did their part by picking up a critical LSC win in five sets over Southeastern Oklahoma State at Kitty Magee Arena. The TWU hoops squad then put the icing on the Pioneers' cake with a 79-75 exhibition win over the University of North Texas across town at The Super Pit.
Freakin' awesome. That's how I would sum it up in two words.
So go to your closet, dig out your maroon TWU shirt that you haven't worn in a month or so and put it on. Wear it with pride. The Pioneer student-athletes earned that right for you yesterday.
