EPHRAIM—The Snow College women’s soccer team will be hosting the Scenic West Athletic Conference Tournament while holding the top seed thanks to an undefeated 11-0-5 record in their first season as a new athletic program.

“We are very happy to have achieved a couple of the goals we set during our first team meeting,” head coach Nuno Gourgel said. “Based on the overall play during the regular season, I believe the girls deserved to finish first; however, we are aware that seeding does not mean anything and that anybody can take the crown. So, we will have to be at our best to win the conference championship on our home field.”

The Lady Badgers are taking on the winner of the play-in game between Southern Nevada and Colorado Northwestern for the semifinal conference tournament matchup.

On the other hand, Snow men’s soccer is fighting their way into the playoffs after an awful conference has brought their record all the way down to 6-8-0, losing five of their last six matches.

The Badgers will be hosting the play-in game against Colorado Northwestern. The winner of the matchup will play top-seeded Salt Lake, who the Badgers have lost to three times this season.
