During the fall season, Saint Mary’s teams competed across four sports — cross country, soccer, golf and volleyball — in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA).
Saint Mary’s golf boasted a successful fall season capped off with a win in the MIAA Championship.
After several fall wins in the MIAA, the team now gears up for a spring season set to begin Mar. 12 at the Cal Lutheran Regals Invitational.
The cross country team capped off a strong run of invitational performances with a 29th place finish at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional race.
The group was led by Adele Edmonds with her 113th place individual finish.
Meanwhile, the Saint Mary’s soccer team experienced a down year, finishing 1-17 and 0-16 in conference play.
Freshman forward McKenna O’Shea was a stand-out on the team, earning Second Team All-MIAA honors, only the fifth Belle ever to do so as a freshman.
The volleyball squad also enjoyed a solid fall season, finishing 16-10 and securing their second straight semifinal run in the MIAA tournament that came to an end at the hands of Hope College.
Recently, the season kicked off for the Belle’s basketball team, who are off to a 5-14 start, posting a 3-8 in-conference.
Their next game is Wednesday, January 31 against Illinois Tech at 7:30 p.m. at home.
