SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 22, 2018) – Originally scheduled for Oct. 20, Seniors' Day finally took place after field conditions at the Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) soccer field were deemed unplayable because of rainy weather.

They drop to 4-3-1 in the Red River Athletic Conference and 7-4-2 overall, while the Jaguars improve to 7-0-1 in conference and 8-1-1 overall.
