What to Expect This Fall in Sports


According to the CCIW preseason poll for football, Millikin is not expected to do well this season. The Big Blue came in last season with only 10 points. As of now, Millikin football stands 3-7, 1-6.

Men’s Soccer is currently standing at 9-8-1, 4-3-0, and has a pretty good chance this season according to the preseason poll, in which they came in sixth with 20 points. Expectations are high for Men’s Soccer with 17 letter winners returning and eight starters from last year’s team that won its final four regular season games, earning a spot in the CCIW tournament. Women’s soccer came in eighth in the CCIW poll with 8 points, standing at 3-13-2, 0-6-1. Let’s hope the season goes better than what is predicted.

If the Women’s Volleyball team is anything like last year’s, then it’s going to be a winning season! Men and Women’s Tennis are going to be in the clear if they play like they did last year as well. Men and Women’s Cross Country are ready for this season to begin. Men’s Golf is expected to thrive this season after the Decatur Junior Open. Big Blue Wrestlers are buzzing with excitement now that the program is returning with the Blue-White Dual Meets on October 31, everyone is expecting great things from the team. Hopefully it will turn out great for this season, Big Blue!
