100% Participation
77% Participation

Campaign Reaches 77% Mark
   The University has surpassed the 75 percent mark in its 100 percent participation goal for the faculty/staff campaign, which is a part of the University’s five-year, $55 million To Preserve the PRIDE, To Keep the PROMISE Campaign. As of Monday (Sept. 13), 105 of the University’s 137 employees had made pledges and gifts which totaled more than $122,000! But the amount is secondary to the target of reaching 100 Percent Participation. We thank those who have helped us reach the 75 percent level, and we encourage those who have not yet made a pledge to do so by contacting the Office of Advancement (ext. 1236).

Soccer Teams Notch First Wins
   University of the Ozarks men's soccer team evened its season record to 1-1 on Saturday, September 4, when they defeated Southwestern University 1-0 in Georgetown, Texas.
   With a combined effort of the team and a goal from sophomore Marcos Gonzalez, the Eagles were able to defeat a Southwestern team that is considered one of the top teams in the region.
   The win was not without its struggles though. The Eagles played the final 25 minutes one player short due to yellow cards and two others because of injury. Coach Dave De Hart said, “We finished without three starters, and our depth really helped us. Overall, we played very well, especially defensively.”
   The Lady Eagles notched their first victory of the season this past Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Mississippi College. Goals by Lisa Hilton and Sarah Martin and a strong game by goalie Jessica Bush helped the Lady Eagles to the victory. In the men's game, a late goal by MC forced a 3-3 tie. The men are back in action at home on Sept. 22, while the women's next home match is Sept. 23.

Intramural Winners Announced
   On Monday, August 30, sand was flying next to the MacLean parking lot as eight teams from U of O tested their skills against each other.
    The intramural volleyball games continued until Wednesday night, when only two teams were left to battle it out. Team 1, which included Cesar Cervantes, Gabriela Tovar, Otto Mejia, Ryan Evans,and Lauren Lay, had been defeated only once in the tournament against the same team they had to face for the win.
    The team was Faculty 2, and its players were Larry Isch, Jon Janssen, George Pittenger, Susan Dorney, and Becky Swearingen. The game was close and tough but there could only be one winner. So, when the dust cleared it was Team 1 who was the victor.
    They took home the prize of new T-shirts; for the team Faculty 2 there is always next year.
    In intramural tennis action this past weekend, Andrew Engelbrecht and Cesar Cervantes advanced to the singles championship match, which was postponed by rain.
    The next intramural sport for this fall is flag football, September 14 through October 20. For more information contact Bo Funderburk.
