It's been a busy few weeks of trying to get myself acclimated at Dakota Wesleyan and getting everything in order for the upcoming sports seasons. Well, ready or not, it's here! The volleyball team is at the Northwestern Red Raider Classic today and tomorrow in Orange City, Iowa, and the women's golf team also made the trip to Orange City for a Northwestern invite. Bring on the stats and scores!
Before the seasons get too far under way, I wanted to put in a shameless plug for Dakota Wesleyan athletics online. Our athletics website will always be updated, but there are several other places to check scores, stats and anything else you might want to know about your favorite Tiger athletic team. Individual mug shots should be up very soon for all of the fall sports, and we're working on getting winter and some spring sports up, too, so you can see who's who on the teams this season.
There is always, of course, this blog, or you can follow DWU sports on Twitter. That's a general Twitter account kept up by me for all sports. DWU football, wrestling and softball also have their own Twitter accounts you can check on.
Then, of course, everyone's favorite -- Facebook. On my (ever-growing) to-do list is getting DWU Athletics on Facebook, but that hasn't happened yet. You will be the first to know when it does, however. In the meantime, DWU golf and wrestling have Facebook pages. Head volleyball coach Eric Viney also has a blog for the Tiger volleyball team and Brad Pole will keep you up to date on football in his football blog.
So, if you're surfing around the internet and need a new place to visit, check out one of those many links! I'm going to try to keep Twitter updated with scores, and I'll try to do more up-to-date recaps each week on this blog.
