Men’s Soccer Turns a Corner

In the last few years the Hilbert College Men’s Soccer team has struggled to get things going

But, that has started to change this season as the team that has not won  since that 2016 season, has started to win. With a record of 3-5-2, the Soccer team is having its best season in 6 years. .

Newly hired head coach Jonny Black has started his first season with the team and has started to initiate a turnaround in the program. [SJ2] Black was hired in late June of this year and immediately got to work trying to fix a broken program.

 “The atmosphere has definitely changed from what I saw in the last few seasons, and this team now looks different than in the past,.” Black said.

Black also said that paraphrase something he said here…

“The new freshmen have brought a new sense of urgency into the program and combined with the returners has led to better results,” he said.

With the next game happening on Saturday the 8th of October against Penn State Altoona, the team is hoping to get their fourth win of the season and first in conference play.

The future for the team looks bright and Coach Black is hoping that future leads to enormous success.

Men’s Volleyball prepares for its Upcoming Season

The Men’s Volleyball Program was reformed in the Spring of 2020 and has slowly started to find success that it had back when it was in its first iteration.

This year the team is coming off a three-win season and hoping to add more. The season does not officially start until January, but they are starting Fall Ball in November. The team is looking much better then before with many new recruits being brought in to help make the team better.

The team is coached by Calvin Crosby who besides being the Men’s coach, is the women’s volleyball coach as well. Mr. Crosby is very confident in this team’s ability next season, he said,

“With the new recruits coming in and the returners all coming back I can see this team winning double digit games this season.” Crosby said. “I am really expecting a lot from this team this year, as we continue to grow as a program.”

With the season not starting until January this Fall “season” is going to be used to make sure the team is ready for the actual season to start. The next few seasons look really good for them as they look to make a name for themselves at Hilbert.
