Skyhawk women show off their diversity

Sam Weiss, Brooke Milliet and the Fort Lewis College women’s soccer team showcased their offensive diversity against Nichole Kluk and the alumnae team, and Milliet was one of five goal scorers in a 6-0 win for the current side in Saturday’s alumnae game at Dirks Field.
Lauren Riley and the Fort Lewis College defense did well in shutting down Natasha Goslow and the FLC alumnae in a 6-0 win for the 2012 squad in Saturday’s alumnae game at Dirks Field.
Greenwades agree: The 2012 Skyhawks ‘look really good’

Soccer’s not the only sport that invites the alumni back for a late-summer game.
The Fort Lewis College volleyball team topped its predecessors 3-1 on Saturday morning at Whalen Gymnasium in its annual alumnae game.
LeeAnne Greenwade, who played in her third such game since departing after the 2007 season, said it was fun to get a chance to not only see former teammates and get a good run in on the court but also to get a look at the 2012 squad.
“You reminisce a lot, and of course you want to win because you still have that competitive drive, but it’s just fun,” she said. “It’s fun to see all my girlfriends that I played with and Shelly (Aaland, FLC’s head coach).”
Greenwade, who was part of Aaland’s first recruiting class at Fort Lewis, said the 2012 version of the Skyhawks looks improved over the team that went 5-21 a season ago, particularly in the front row.
“They’re looking pretty good this year. ... They’re still pretty young, but they look like they’re going to do well this season,” Greenwade said.
Her sister, Tori Greenwade, said the improvement is impressive given the fact the Skyhawks have a roster entirely devoid of seniors after the graduation of Jessica Wilson and Heather Bryant after last year’s campaign.
“They look really good. I’m really excited to see where they go with it, especially not having any seniors,” she said.
Aaland, herself an FLC alumna who finished her playing career in 1998, and the Skyhawks will open the 2012 campaign at the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Aggies Challenge on Friday in Goodwell, Okla.
