Going into the new school year means approaching brand new seasons for each of Loyola’s 17 Division I sports teams. Before looking ahead and getting ourselves ready for the new wave of tournaments and games, it’s important to see where each of our teams left off. 

Last year’s seasons ended accordingly:

The beginning of fall means new seasons for each of the fall sports. For Loyola, that means a series of new games for the volleyball team along with the men’s and women’s soccer teams. Each of the three teams had their home openers over the weekend of Aug. 25. The volleyball team hosted the Baltimore Bash where they came out 2-1 with victories over Siena and Towson. The men’s soccer team came out of their home opener Friday, Aug. 24 against Rutgers with a 3-0 win. Loyola’s women’s soccer team also had a victorious home opener against Saint Francis with a 1-0 finish. The Greyhounds’ home openers were all victorious and leave each of the teams excited to move forward in their seasons.
