Towson’s women soccer will play in its first CAA Tournament after picking up a victory over William and Mary this weekend.

For the first time in program history, the Towson women’s soccer team has earned a spot in the CAA post-season tournament.

The Tigers made history after picking up a 2-0 victory over William and Mary on Sunday at the Tiger Soccer Complex.

Sophomores Natalia Pinkney and Marissa Green each scored goals in the win that propelled to Tigers to win in the team’s Senior Day game. Senior goalkeeper Erin Quinn recorded her eighth shutout of the season.

“I’m really proud of our team today with the efforts they exerted today with their backs against the wall after a slow start in CAA play,” said head coach Greg Paynter. “To be able to clinch a playoff spot on senior day against a big team in our conference, it was just a great accomplishment all the way around.”

Towson will be back in action on Nov. 2 against No. 3 seed Hofstra in the first round of the CAA Tournament on Hempstead, N.Y.

Volleyball Adds to Win Streak

The Towson University volleyball team won its seventh-straight match, picking up a 3-0 win at Delaware on Friday.

Senior Saitaua Iosia led the way with 12 kills, five digs and two aces, while junior Haley Pa’akaula added 11 kills and nine digs. Junior Aimee Schubert dished out 21 assists.

Towson returns to action this Thursday, Oct. 30, for the first of three straight home matches.

Before the match, the team will be hosting an indoor trick-or-treat starting at 6 p.m. around the SECU Arena concourse. Student-athletes and cheerleaders will handout candy in costume.

There will also be a costume contest during the game between the second and third sets for kids under the age of 12, and another contest for Towson University students.

Halloween-themed music will be played throughout the match.

Tigers tip-off new basketball season.

The new basketball season started last Friday, as the Towson men’s and women’s basketball teams were introduced at Tiger Tip-off.

Each team was introduced to its own walk-out song while throwing T-shirts to the crowd.

Following introductions, the teams competed in a hot-shot competition, a three-point shootout and a slam dunk contest.

A.J. Astroth won the hot-shot competition, Byron Hawkins outlasted Four McGlynn in the three-point shootout, and Timajh Parker-Rivera won the slam dunk contest.

Fans will have the chance to see both men’s and women’s teams in action on Nov. 7 in a doubleheader of exhibition games at SECU Arena.

The women’s team will host Stevenson at 6 p.m., followed by the men’s team game against Slippery Rock.
