Seldom do football games go the way they predict on paper, but on Homecoming Saturday, the Warriors of the gridiron showed why they were the favorites going away over the rebuilding Moundbuilders of Southwestern College, victorious by a 42-14 margin.
Ironically, one year ago the Warriors used the aerial attack to best Southwestern putting up 42 points as well, but as the personnel changed, so did the Sterling attack as the offensive amassed a pummeling 316 yards on the ground on 55 carries on the day, QB Tyler Degenhardt leading the way gaining 144 yards on just 18 carries.
Sterling College senior Ryan Covey has been named NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics), Men’s Soccer “Offensive Player of the Week” after his two stellar performances in Sterling’s victories last week.
Covey led Sterling to a 2-0 record last week, scoring six of his team’s ten goals last week and tallied two assists.
Sterling College will be dedicating its two newest residence halls on Saturday, October 18, at 11:30 a.m. during the Homecoming festivities. The halls, formally known as just X and Y, will be officially named “Douglas Men” and “Douglas Women,” together called “The Douglas Residences,” in honor of SC’s 10th President, Dr. Bruce Douglas, and his wife, Dee.
