Kicking It Old School
The Mizzou soccer team makes noise in the SEC.
The supercharged senior leaders of the 2012 Mizzou women’s soccer team aim to make history, says Coach Bryan Blitz. The fourth-year players were freshmen when the Tigers won the Big 12 Championship. Now, at 13–5 overall and 8–4 in the Southeastern Conference at press time, the Tigers have established themselves in the SEC and stand poised for an NCAA Tournament run. “Going from champions to underachieving a little last year, the seniors have resolved that they don’t want to go out like that,” Blitz says. Three seniors have been at Mizzou for all four years: Jessica Greer (Sedalia, Mo.), Haley Krentz and Kelsey Mulcahy (both from Naperville, Ill.). Two others — Taiwo Adeshigbin (Lawrenceville, Ga.), and Allison Hu (St. Charles, Mo.) — are transfers.
