Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! Somewhere, buried deep in my
sick mind I knew the West Campus Soccer Complex renovations were due to happen this summer, and I thought I made a note to follow the progress, but alas, it slipped me.
I don't know if we have any 'Nova soccer alums on here, or 'Nova soccer fans, but I'm pretty disappointed in the decision to lay down field turf instead of grass. I understand for the school this should save a lot of cash, and the coaches might even be happy that they can practice in the elements. But as a player...no thank you.
And now, the "news."
