Riches shooting for win No. 1 before talking about anything else

I had my first chance to have an extended visit with our new women's soccer coach Alan Riches. I was impressed with the fact that he doesn't expect a miracle in the first season. As you'll see in the interview, he wants his team to take the steps necessary to just win a match, something the program hasn't done since the last match of the 2006 season. He has seven players back and 11 new players to work with as we head towards the season opener Sept. 1. That match will be played at home at Edwards Field against NAIA Lubbock Christian.

Riches also mentions in the interview that he has family ties to Wilford Moore - whom the McMurry football stadium is named after.

Read the season preview and check out the PHOTO GALLERY from yesterday's practice.

Stay tuned ...
