With the academic year wrapping up, the athletic year has been eventful one, filled with ups and down, highs and lows.

Women’s volleyball notched a record of 24-9 while reaching the NCAA Division III tournament, eventually falling to St. Benedict University in Minnesota. Next year also brings the birth of the new program, where men’s Volleyball will be offered next year.

Women’s soccer outclassed their opponents at home with a record of 6-3 yet couldn’t achieve the same feat away with a record of 2-8. Men’s soccer went undefeated at home (12-0) resulting in another conference title in the resume of coach Baumann and a deep run into the national tournament.

Men’s Basketball featured the rise of talented juniors such as Anthony Keener and Taylor Deroo among others, setting up a potentially great season next year. Women’s basketball struggled all season long, facing diversity and troubles since the beginning of the season.

Finally, a young men’s baseball team has etched out a record of 8-18 so far while women’s softball has been outstanding thus far, with a record of 16-6 lead by an All-American effort of senior Emily Mahoney.

The future seems bright for all of Dominican’s athletic teams and with more incoming talent next year, all of these Stars are worth watching.
