The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
Erik Smith was on hand for the Gonzaga Bulldogs Women’s Sunday August 26 match against the Boise State Broncos. The Zags completed an “Idaho sweep” with a 2:1 win after having also topped the Idaho Vandals two days earlier.
“Every year our #1 goal is to put ourselves in position to receive a bid for the NCAA tournament and 2012 is just the same,” assistant coach Derek Pittman told goalWA.net in the Zags season preview. “With our non-conference and WCC schedule, we know there will be no easy games but if we show passion and our true competitive spirit every time we step on the field we will give ourselves a great chance to win each match. Our soccer program continues to take steps in the right direction and we know it won’t be long before the gap becomes much smaller with the top teams in our league. We expect 2012 to be that year and hope fans will come out and support the Zags in 2012!”
