2021 Fall Olympic Sports
We have some exciting teams coming back this fall to compete and so I wanted to showcase 3 promising teams that could make waves.

Men’s Soccer: Reigning CAA Champs, coming in ranked #19 nationally with a young team Thai has received good experience in the spring. However, we lose TJ Bush, a phenomenal keeper, as well as defender Tom Judge who were both All-Americans. They kick off the season hosting #1 Marshall on 8/26 in the Burg.

Women’s Golf: Can’t find any outlets that specialize in NCAA golf coverage but if the roster composition is any indicator, I believe we bring back every major contributor from last year’s CAA championship team with everyone being a R-Jr or younger. They start 9/4 up at Penn State.

Field Hockey : Strong finish to last year and it looks like we are favorites to win the CAA Championship this year. They play some big competition this year and as we all know through the 90s or with Delaware recently that CAA teams can win the Natty here.

Certainly more teams to cover and I could be here all day writing each one down but these look like the top three. Excited to see everyone compete this year and hopefully we have a lot of good news to post in this thread!

RE: 2021 Fall Olympic Sports
Updates for the Week of 8/23:

WSOC beat American 4-0 to move to 1-1 on the season and will play Louisville tomorrow night.

#21 MSOC received a ranking of #15 nationally by TopDrawerSoccer and will play consensus #1 Marshall tomorrow night at Sentara Park @7:30PM on Flo.

#24 Field Hockey opens Friday night playing Bucknell (RPI #4 in the spring). Mettlen reported that there are high expectations for the team this year to make national news.

Volleyball who was picked to finish second in the CAA will play High Point, VCU, and Illinois State this weekend.

Hoping to provide these previews/recaps each week. Should be a fun fall for JMU!

You are correct, for some reason I thought that was an exhibition game. Updating now to 1-1, thanks for catching that.

Game against #1 Marshall begins in about 20 minutes after a weather delay. Only problem, no stream now.

Edit:
I stand corrected. Mettlin tweeting that the stream is back on.

Not the best game to break in your first GK in three years. Every shot Marshall took was on target, and where the goalie couldn't reach. For much of the game we actually out shot the Herd but couldn't make their goalie work to make the save. Regroup against KC on Sunday.

It will be, Marshall is #1 in all the polls and Defending National Champions for a reason.

You may have out shot Marshall by one 14 to 13. But Marshall doubled up on Shots on Goal 8-4 and at one point Marshall had 6 shots on goal and 6 goals.

I'm still shocked by that score.... I thought we were a lot better than that. Maybe Marshall's just THAT good

Marshall Soccer is the Gold Standard right now. Pretty exciting given they’re not UVA, Indiana, UCLA, etc. MU really raised the bar when it came to compensating their head coach to the level of the elite programs previously mentioned. Everyone loves a winner!

Volleyball with a nice come from behind 5 set win, started out down 0-2. High Point has been a really strong mid major program since 2015. Veldman, our leading scorer and CAA Frosh of Year last year did not play, not sure why, but we got big production out of Davis in the middle and two Sophs, including a juco transfer. If we can stay healthy we should be the favorites in conference

I'm just hoping some of those guys can be home growns for DC United (they need all the help they can get)
