At today’s practice, the Salukis' first-team linebacking unit featured four players who have never started a game in their college careers.
School may be out for most collegians, but four Saluki track and field stars have extended their seasons to the maximum after qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The outdoor national meet will be held once again at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., from June 10-13.
There are certain sounds that define a track and field meet: the snap of the starting gun; grunts from throwers; wind rushing past runners' ears; gasps for breath after a hard push toward the finish line; cheers from the crowd.
Having grown up in a suburb of Chicago, Saluki softball senior Alyssa Wunderlich didn't know much about Southern Illinois before her recruitment started.
When Southern Illinois men's golfer Wade Thompson tees it up tomorrow at the Missouri Valley Conference Championships in Sunrise Beach, Mo., he won't intimidate the competition with his size and strength.
