FALL 2018 SEASON UPDATE:

WELCOME EVERYBODY TO THE 2018 FALL SEASON OF AUP ATHLETICS! THIS SEMESTER WILL BE AN EXCITING ONE WITH ALL OF OUR TEAMS GETTING READY FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON. THE TEAMS WE HAVE THIS SEMESTER ARE MENS FUTSAL, WOMENS VOLLEYBALL, EQUESTRIAN, DANCE, AND MENS BASKETBALL. HERE’S SOME INFORMATION FROM THIS SEMESTER’S TRYOUTS AND SOME INFORMATION FOR THE SEASON.

TRYOUTS
HERE IS HOW TRYOUTS WENT FOR ALL OF OUR TEAMS.
MENS FUTSAL:
THE FUTSAL TEAM HAD A GREAT TRYOUT AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT SEASON. THIS SEMESTER IS CHALK FULL OF GAMES AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW THEY DO!

WOMENS VOLLEYBALL:
THE VOLLEYBALL TRYOUTS WENT VERY SMOOTHLY AND THE CAPTAINS ARE VERY EXCITED TO HAVE A SLEW OF NEW PLAYERS THAT WILL PROVIDE A GREAT DEAL OF POTENTIAL TO THE TEAM. THEIR NEW COACH, JEREMY ARKI, IS GIVING THE ATHLETES A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON VOLLEYBALL AND IS HELPING TO IMPROVE THEIR GAME STRATEGIES.

EQUESTRIAN:
WITH AN ENTIRELY NEW ROSTER THIS SEMESTER, IT IS EXCITING TO SEE WHAT THE EQUESTRIAN TEAM WILL BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THEIR NEW TEAM. THE WHOLE TEAM IS EXCITED FOR THEIR UPCOMING SEASON AND CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF.

DANCE:
THE NEWEST TEAM TO AUP ATHLETICS, THE DANCE TEAM IS THRILLED TO SHOW OFF THEIR NEW TEAM. THE LEVEL OF DANCER RANGES FROM BEGINNER TO ADVANCED/EXPERIENCED IN ALL DIFFERENT STYLES AND TECHNIQUES. EVERYONE DID EXTREMELY WELL IN THE AUDITION, AND COACH ELEANOR HAHN HAS A LOT IN STORE FOR THE NEW TEAM.

MENS BASKETBALL:
THE BASKETBALL TRYOUTS HAD MANY NEW FACES BUT UNFORTUNATELY MAINLY DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS, THE BASKETBALL TEAM WILL NOT HAVE A TEAM READY FOR FALL COMPETITIONS. WE HOPE TO SEE THE BASKETBALL TEAM BACK ON THE COURT NEXT SEMESTER!!
