Ten Sports Things To Be Thankful For As A Texas State Bobcat
- Texas State Soccer found its way to yet another Sun Belt Conference post-season birth this year before losing to the Troy Trojans in the semifinal match. The Bobcats finished 11-7-2 on the season and 5-3-1 in the Sun Belt.
- Texas State Men’s and Women’s Basketball both have an opportunity to improve on last year and prove that they are here to stay in the Sun Belt Conference (and to win).
- Tyler Jones is only a sophomore! He leads the Sun Belt Conference with 20 touchdowns and is sixth in Texas State history with 28 career touchdowns for the Bobcats.
- Randi Rupp who is only a freshman for Texas State Softball is ready to prove herself at the collegiate level, and every Bobcat can be thankful for continuing to find new and improved talent.
- Texas State Baseball who featured four Major League Baseball draftees just a season ago looks to build on the young talent of the rest of the team. Not to mention, Ty Harrington, who is going to continue to build on his historic Texas State career after getting win number 500 last season against Baylor, leads the team.
- Karen Chisum nabbed her 800th career victory on senior night at Strahan Coliseum and isn’t done yet.
- Texas State Softball welcomes former Olympians Cat Osterman and Kelly Kretschman to the coaching staff to improve on an already prominent program.
- Texas State Volleyball is thankful (and you should be as well) to be hosting and playing in the Sun Belt Conference championship tournament as its second seed. The Bobcats head into the Thanksgiving tournament with a 20-12 record in the regular season and 15-5 in the Sun Belt Conference.
- Texas State Football is bowl eligible for the second straight season after defeating Arkansas State in yet another nationally televised game. The Bobcats will finish the season against Georgia State Saturday, Nov. 29 as they look to finish the regular season at 7-5.
