SIU women win, men lose at McKendree University Invite


Southern Illinois competed against the Bearcats on Friday, October 7th for the Salukis’ first match of the season. The women’s team managed to pull out the victory while the men weren’t so lucky.

The women’s team would dominate, winning multiple individual and relay events. The SIU women’s team scored a total of 229 to McKendree’s 69.

The men’s team kept it close with the Bearcats. They would typically split the events point-wise, with McKendree only featuring a slight edge to the Dawgs.


It wouldn’t be enough, however, as the Salukis were outlasted 146-134.

SIU’s next meet will take place next Friday, the 14th of October, where they will travel to Urbana-Champaign for a meet against University of Illinois. This will be a women’s-only meet.
