Overall, it was not the best weekend for the Dawgs but this is another step in the journey to Nationals. The upcoming schedule will consist of practice and the Dawgs training until Nationals in April.
The Dawgs are back in action after a much needed break. On February 1st, the Dawgs will return to Peoria, Illinois to attend the Regional Championships at Bradley University. The Dawgs will look to have a strong showing in our first league tournament of the season. Also, Nationals registration is underway and the Dawgs are that much closer to returning to Nationals. This is just another step on the road to Kansas City in the spring.
The Dawgs had a successful first semester and are looking to transfer that success over to next semester. Now, the Dawgs are at rest and will recharge over this Christmas break and gear up for next semester. All the Dawgs want for Christmas is a bid to Nationals in Kansas City.
The Dawgs would like to extend their holiday wishes to all of Club Sports and the entire Butler community. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
The Dawgs Fall season is coming to a close, the Dawgs finish the fall season with a 6-2-2 record. Overall, it was a very strong start to the season for the Dawgs. The Dawgs showed great grit and determination throughout every match they played this semester. Below are the results from our last tournament at Bradley University in PeoVegas, Illinois. Thanks for the support and help this semester. The Dawgs hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. See you all next semester!!
