Donning the black and gold for the first time as members of the Atlantic 10 Conference, the VCU men’s and women’s soccer teams dash into SportsBackers Stadium together on October 5. But first, on September 25, the men’s squad returns from a string of six road games to defend the turf against the rival Cavaliers. Forward Jason Johnson, whose breakout year in 2011 included 11 goals, has ascended into the leadership role for the new season, engineering plays and trebuchets to keep up his team’s attack.
Meanwhile, following a run to the Colonial Athletic Association championship a year ago, the women ride their own momentum into the fall. After combining for 12 goals and 27 points in 2011, Courtney Conrad and Cristin Granados once again spearhead the Rams’ offense. The duo’s return is one of several reasons the women’s team was picked fourth in the Atlantic 10 preseason poll despite their unfamiliarity with the conference’s teams, who insist on playing on grass instead of a field of hot coals.
VCU Rams Athletics
In 2011, the VCU Rams athletics program emerged under the national spotlight's brightest bulbs when the men's basketball team advanced to the NCAA Final Four as an 11-seed. But while their Cinderella story may have made VCU a household name and bedtime story for sports-loving children, it is hardly the only instance of Rams' athletic success. Their women's basketball team went 23-10 last year and made it to the Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT). Members of the Atlantic 10 Conference since 2012, the Rams don their black-and-gold uniforms to proudly represent their university at a number of fan-friendly facilities.
