Support our fall sports teams
Other fall sports are already underway.
Last weekend, the Bears volleyball team hosted the Mary Jo Wynn invitational tournament on campus. This weekend the team will travel to New Orleans for the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Volleyball Classic tournament.
The men’s soccer team played their home opener last Thursday against the University of Missouri – Kansas City. Their next home game is Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. followed by a weekend home game on Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.
The women’s soccer team played three exhibition matches at home in mid-August. Their next home game is Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. against the University of Missouri – Kansas City.
You can find more information about Bears football, volleyball, soccer, and all of our intercollegiate sports on the university’s athletics webpage.
As we kickoff our fall sports schedules, I hope you’ll join me in coming out to support our Bears.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
