Soccer Coach Seeks Consistency
With conference play approaching, finding a level of consistency is the main focus of head coach Adrian Blewitt. The Trojans have started the season 3-4 and look to have the kinks worked out before conference play begins. The first conference game is on September 29 against Arkansas State.
Coach Blewitt is still searching for the right mix on the field. “We’re trying to find out what our strongest starting 11 is, what our best formation is and some of the inconsistency we have is because of that” Blewitt said. “We are a growing program and we do have inconsistency and very good teams have a lot more consistency.”
The Trojans currently find themselves in 5th place and have already surpassed last year’s win total. The team had a 1-10 conference record last season and will have to continue to improve to turn that around this year. That challenge is nothing new to coach Blewitt, who has a reputation of doing just that with his programs.
The SunBelt conference coach’s poll has the Trojans slated to finish 8th overall in the conference. The Western Kentucky Lady Toppers are picked to win the conference. The two teams won’t meet until October, in a game here at home. That may give coach Blewitt the time he needs to find the consistency that he wants. The Lady Trojans next face UAB, Friday at the Coleman Sports & Recreation Complex.
