The bike racks are full, the lines are long and the campus is crowded. Yes folks, it's that time of year again. School has started and the Pilots women's soccer team has successfully survived the first week.
The first Ole Miss game marked the beginning of one season and the end of another. Saturday's home opener provided one last chance to wear white before Labor Day. There were little white dresses for miles.
Each year every team returns from summer break the first week of August to begin its journey to a national championship. The journey for most doesn’t start in August, but is a continuation of hard work, determination and progress put forth during the spring semester and leading up to the fall.

Meow, meow! For anyone who doesn’t happen to fluently speak kitten language like me, that means, “Hi! I’m so excited to be blogging and helping you learn a little more about the 2012 Portland Pilots women’s soccer team.
I grew up in Missouri, land of jeans, hoodies, Stag beer and fans who consider football a beloved sport instead of a religion. In fact, I never even went to a football game the whole time I lived in Columbia, even after I stayed in my hometown to attend the University of Missouri.

Twas two nights before the World Series and not a creature was stirring, perhaps not even Jessica Mouse. ...

Is it really over? I keep asking myself that question over and over again. The game that has been my life for 17 years came to an end last Sunday in Lafayette, La. Even though we fell short of a trip to the WCWS and my ultimate goal of a national championship, I wouldn't change anything.
