The women’s soccer team commenced their season last weekend against two non-division teams in North Carolina. Although the results weren’t exactly what head coach Horne and the Bulldogs were expecting as they returned to Brooklyn dropping both games to Pfeiffer University and Greensboro College. The Bulldogs slump continued into Saturday’s match-up against St. Josephs College, which resulted in a 1-8 loss to the Eagles. Brooklyn has a chance to pick up their first win on the year, while at the same time try to get off to a good start in CUNYAC competition as they visit John Jay this Wednesday, kick-off is set to start at 4:00 p.m.
A slow start to the season for head coach Joseph Real Andre and the men’s soccer team as they hold a 1-2-1 record through week one. Entering his second year as the head coach for the men’s soccer team, Coach Andre took Brooklyn to the CUNYAC Playoffs last season as the number 5th seed in CUNY. Coach Andre and the Bulldogs finished with a 7-10 overall record and a 4-2-2 CUNY record, before losing to the College of Staten Island in the opening round of the 2016 playoffs. The Bulldogs won’t see any CUNY conference action until Sept. 27 as they travel to Randall’s Island to face off against the John Jay Bloodhounds.
The 2016 CUNYAC Champions will tip-off their season Nov. 15 on the road against William Peterson University. Head Coach Rich Micallef and the men’s basketball will look to get back to the CUNYAC Finals after being knocked out of the last year’s playoffs in the first round by the #6 seeded Hunter College. Brooklyn has a chance at revenge against Hunter, when both teams face off for the first time since last year’s playoff matchup on Friday Dec. 1. The Bulldogs will intend to flip the script on their record from last season, which consisted of only six overall win and four wins in CUNY competition. Brooklyn will host their first home game against the College of New Rochelle on Tuesday Nov. 21.
For the past three consecutive season’s the women’s basketball team have made it all the way to the CUNYAC Final, but for three consecutive season’s they’ve come up short of a championship. Losing a close one against the College of Staten Island by nine points last season, an overtime heartbreaker against Lehman in 2016, and a blowout defeat versus Baruch in 2015. Surely head coach Alex Lang and the Bulldogs will get it right this season and bring a CUNYAC championship back to Brooklyn, the title that has slipped from their fingertips for three straight seasons. Brooklyn finished atop in the CUNYAC standings last season with a 14-2 record, and a 22-7 overall record. The Bulldogs start their quest on Nov. 15, as they travel to play against non-conference opponent Kean University.
After making it all the way to the CUNYAC Quarterfinals last season the women’s tennis team, head coach David Wallis and his coach staff have had a solid start to their season. Brooklyn picked up two wins against two non-division opponents in Farmingdale State College and Kean University. Although the outcome wasn’t the same in their first CUNYAC as they lost a close one to John Jay, 4-5. The Bulldogs will play their fourth game of the season against non-conference opponent Purchase University Tuesday Sept. 12.
The women’s volleyball team have started their season rolling past their competition, winning their first five games, against both CUNY and non-CUNY opponents. Head coach Mateusz Gotowicki and the coach staff have redefined the definition of improvement, just last season they started the year losing their first nine games. Their latest victory came in a double header on Saturday, shutting out both Medgar Evers and the College of Staten Island, 3-0 in both games. The Bulldogs will take their talents to Irving, Texas, as they compete in the University of Dallas Classic against three Texas based Universities this weekend.
