This week the Thunderbirds worked hard preparing for our last home games for the season.We are ready for our hard work to pay off this Friday against North Dakota at 3 pm. COME SUPPORT!!


Sunday Game Against Northern Colorado at 1 pm

The t-bird's family will miss our three seniors!!!

 #20 Sabrina Hernandez        

Sabrina has been a fantastic teammate this season. She always brings laughs and a good attitude to practice. She is a strong midfielder who is such a threat on our attack with a deadly shot on frame. She loves cats and is majoring in Criminal Justice here at SUU.

#15 Kristy Hendrickson
Kristy has been our T-bird Captain this season and has been a great leader. Her sense of humor always makes our road trips and practices more enjoyable and entertaining. She is majoring as a elementary teacher to go on and teach little ninos more in school!


#22 Megan Mower
Mow has done it all this season going from a strong defender to a crazy good forward all within a few short weeks. She is kitty crazy and never hesitates to pet or hold a cute cat or dog is she sees one!! She is majoring in excerise science and is going to serve a mission in Salem, Oregon in February.

Best of luck to our seniors in all of their future endeavors!! :)

A Little Time in the Pacific Northwest

This past weekend was one of mixed emotions. We started our road trip with a scoreless draw on the road against the top-ranked Portland State Vikings. We had a few near chances that didn't quite come to fruition, but a point on the road is a positive outcome. During our stay in Hillsboro, we were able to stop in at Nancy's Aunt's house for a nice meal after a long day of travel--yum!

From there, we set off to Sacramento, our sights set on the Hornets on their Senior Day. The night before the game, we had a delicious dinner at Mackenzie's house, where we socialized and almost died laughing around a driveway campfire. It was a great bonding experience filled with shared facial expressions captured by Snapchat. (I would like to send a shout-out to the Morenos and Courtneys for great meals and wonderful evenings at both destinations. Your hospitality was incredible and much appreciated.)

We didn't quite have the showing on Sunday that we had wanted, and on that day, Sac State was the better team. Despite our loss, I was very proud of our team, and we will come back stronger from what we have learned. It is now evident to others what was clear from the beginning for us; we have a bright future and some very talented players. Next up on our list is North Dakota to kickoff a pivotal 4-game stretch. I have no doubt that we will rise to the occasion, step up, and win the games we need to win to hopefully secure a seed in the top 4 for a Big Sky Tournament berth. The Thunderbirds are on the rise, and we are here to prove it in our upcoming home-stand.

Last Week of September
By Kenz and Chan

This past week we had a rough loss to NAU. We played our hearts out and dominated the whole game but didn't quite come out on top. We're going to make the best of the situation though and head into the rest of our conference games with a positive attitude as we learn from our mistakes. We play Weber State and Idaho State this weekend, and we are really looking forward to adding some more wins to our record. The team is doing better than ever right now as we work to take care of our bodies by eating right and getting plenty of sleep. Our focus going into the next few weeks is to take extra amazing care of our bodies.
Kenz and I decided this quote pretty much wraps our week and what we expect from our future:

"A champion is someone who does not settle for that day's practice, that day's competition, that day's performance. They are always striving to be better. They don't live in the past."

We look forward to seeing lots of fans at our games this weekend on Friday at 4:00pm and Sunday at 1:00pm!
See you then!:)
