First Road Trip Sends Hoosiers to California
Aug. 30, 2012
RECORD VS. OPPONENTS
The last time that Indiana travelled to the state of California to play was Aug. 26 and 28 to play Loyola Marymount and Southern Cal, respectively. The Hoosiers posted a 0-0 tie against Loyola and lost 6-0 to USC.
The last time Indiana won in the state of California was Sept. 7, 1997, when they topped San Diego by a score of 1-0.
Velasquez was in the starting lineup for all three pool play games in London and tallied nine shots overall, as Colombia failed to advance out of pool play following losses to North Korea, France and United States.
The summer prior, Velasquez helped Colombia to an appearance in the FIFA Women's World Cup. She did not play in the first contest of pool play but came on as a substitute in the second match against the United States and nearly tallied a goal just seconds after entering the field of play. She then started the final game of the tournament against North Korea and was named "Player of the Match" by FIFA.
TWICE AS NICE
YOU LOOK FAMILIAR
Joining Lyon on the IU sidelines this year will be a couple of familiar faces to IUWS fans. Chloe McKay (2007-10) and Megan Reinhardt (2005-07) will serve as assistant coaches. McKay was a volunteer/student assistant coach with the Hoosiers last year while Reinhardt was the goalkeeper coach at the University of Indianapolis last season.
She has also found the back of the net this year against Ohio and Missouri State to give her five goals on the season and 11 in her career.
