With homecoming weekend coming to a close, the Terriers are starting to get into conference play. Football, men's and women's soccer and volleyball will be on the road throughout the week. Women's soccer and volleyball will also have home events on Tuesday. The Terrier golf teams are not competing this week.
Hiram's victory against the Kenyon Lords was nothing short of ideal for a homecoming football game. The Terriers defeated the Lords 45-7 for their first win of the season. Hiram is now 1-1, 1-0 NCAC on the season.
This Saturday, the Terriers will travel to DePauw (Ind.) for a 1 p.m. matchup. Last season, Hiram was defeated by DePauw by a score of 7-45.
The Terriers are coming off of two home matchups against local opponents. Hiram first hosted Case Western on Wednesday, which resulted in a 1-1 tie. The Terriers then dropped a 0-4 loss against John Carroll on Saturday.
Hiram will be traveling for both of their matches this week. The Terriers will first face Otterbein in Westerville on Wednesday and then battle Wooster in their conference opener on Saturday.
After a tough loss against John Carroll, Hiram looks to gain some momentum going into the start of conference play.
The Terriers will first host Bethany (W.Va.) at Henry Field on Tuesday and then be on the road to battle conference foe Wooster on Saturday.
The Terriers went a perfect 3-0 last week when they competed in the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Tournament over the weekend. Hiram swept all three opponents, which included Anderson (Ind.), Finlandia (Mich.), and Kalamazoo (Mich.).
Hiram will first host John Carroll on Tuesday in a nonconference matchup. The Terriers will then open conference play on the road when they travel to Wittenberg on Saturday and DePauw (Ind.) on Sunday.
Both the Terrier men's and women's golf teams will be idle this week. The men's team will compete at the Westminster Fall Invitational next week and the women's team will return to competition in October.
