The Scouting Report
The fall calendar is packed with SLU sporting events. After advancing to the second round of the NCAA Championship last season, the men’s soccer team returns to the pitch as one of the country’s top-ranked teams. Sophomore goalkeeper Sascha Otte led the Atlantic 10 with 12 shutouts in 2014. It’s as if he never left his spot between the posts, playing every minute of every game and sleeping in the net during halftime.
Meanwhile, the women’s soccer team is already enjoying a hot start to their 2015 campaign. They started this season 2–0 for the sixth time in program history, scoring nine goals across those two victories—just one shy of the school record. On the volleyball court, the Billikens’ six starters from last season return to the rotation, including a dangerous duo at the net in Danielle Rygelski (3.62 kills per set in 2014) and Nenye Okoro (2.97 kills per set).
Saint Louis Billikens
The city of Saint Louis may be known as the Gateway to the West, but for many of the nation’s premier soccer players, it’s the final destination. That’s because, with 10 NCAA Division I championships to their name, the Saint Louis Billikens have built a soccer tradition more lasting than a pair of cleats left to dry in wet cement. While men’s soccer may be the Billikens’ flagship program, they are a formidable force across a variety of sports, including men’s basketball, a program that has made it to the NCAA Tournament nine times.
