The Western men’s soccer team will be hosting an open tryout at the Robert S. Harrington Field on Jan. 31. Western finished last season with an overall record of 5-10-3, while going 3-9-2 in conference play.
Assistant men’s soccer coach Conner Moe will be on the lookout for new talent after losing six seniors. Among the departing seniors are Kurtis Pederson and Uche Ugwoaba. Ugwoaba was a selection to the 2015 Second Great Northwest All-Conference team, while Pederson tied for the team’s second leading goal scorer with seven on the year and made the second All-GNAC team the prior year.
The Vikings hope to reach the playoffs in 2016 for the first time since the 1990s.
If interested in trying out, email Moe (ConnerWilliam.Moe@wwu.edu) by Jan. 18. In order to try out, players must fill out the paperwork listed on the men’s soccer program’s website.
