Fall Sports Update

With the conclusion of fall break, we’ve now passed midterms in the semester. For fall sports, we’ve seen plenty of action across the sports that have been playing.


The SWOSU football team is 3-5 on their season, with their most recent game being a homecoming loss to East Central University. Their offense has been much improved from last season, and it appears as if head coach Josh Kirkland has the program trending in the right direction.

On the season, quarterback Tylan Morton has the offense averaging over 30 points per game as he’s completed over 60% of his passes for 2,030 yards and 18 touchdowns with only five interceptions. The offense looks much more disciplined, and their quick playstyle that puts plenty of points on the board reflects Coach Kirkland’s comments before the season ever started.

The run game has been a work of multiple running backs, as Gerald Palmer is leading the team with 98 rushes, which has led to 437 yards and three touchdowns. Four different rushers combine for 12 touchdowns, as all four rushers have three touchdowns apiece.



The SWOSU volleyball team has picked up their play in their last ten games, as they’ve went 7-3 in that spam. Like last year, the Lady Bulldogs started off the season slow, but slowly put together some wins, which eventually led to a winning season. This season, the Lady Bulldogs have seen the same trend, as their recent play has given them a winning record to build off.
Going forward, it seems as if the team will be able to continue to put wins together to finish off another successful season.
