With the 2016-2017 school year underway, the Westfield State University Owls have been looking for their third straight, Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Howard C. Smith Cup.

The Smith Cup, is awarded yearly to the institution within the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference that scores the most points based on placement of each program competing in the 15 league championship sports.

This Fall, the Owls are having a strong year in Women’s Field Hockey, Women’s Soccer, finally Men and Women’s Cross Country teams.

During the preseason, MASCAC predicted that Westfield State University Cross Country, Women’s team will take the championship, and the Men’s team will take second place.

In the first week of cross country, both the men and women’s teams took first place at the Fitchburg Invitational in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. I predict, that both Westfield State Cross Country teams will take the championship this season.

Women’s volleyball, football, and men’s soccer have had a tough season thus far. Freshman, Natasha Belardo on the Women’s Volleyball team was named MASCAC Rookie of the Week.

Belardo, a Springfield resident and Holyoke High School graduate was a strong addition to the Holyoke Knights and Westfield State University Owls.

Belardo, has helped the Owls even though they have had a tough schedule thus far, and plans to do great success for the rest of the season.

Freshman Norman Carroll is bringing experience he gained from the football team at Springfield’s Central High School.

During the first week of Westfield State University Football, Carroll was named MASCAC Special Teams Player of the Week.

During the first game of the season, Carroll went two out of three in field goals with sixty-nine yards total versus Nichols College Bison.
