Good Morning Vandal Nation: Sept. 21, 2009

21 Sep

After our usual recovery-Sunday hiatus, there’s a big pile of WAC news from the weekend that was, so let’s get right to it.

First, though, comes the news that Vandal linebacker JoJo Dickson has been named WAC Defensive Player of the Week.

Dickson brought the house down with his spectacular, 74-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter of Saturday’s Idaho Vandals/San Diego State Aztecs game. That opening score gave the Vandals a lead they would never relinquish. Dickson also contributed six tackles on defense, including three solo takedowns.


  • The Moscow-Pullman Daily News’ Sandra Kelly has another gamer.
  • The Spokesman-Review’s Josh Wright has yet another gamer — feeling the flow here?


  • After a strong start, Vandal volleyball has now dropped six consecutive games. Idaho’s athletic site has the gory details on the losses to UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly.

Young, talented XC men’s squad, deep women’s squad, look to continue UI cross country dominance

3 Sep

For Teegan Schoch, it’s that time of the year again. A time of long runs on sunny days, and the mental preparation that comes with being a cross country athlete. Schoch, a sophomore at the University of Idaho, is one of ten returning runner for a strong and talented Idaho Vandals women’s cross-country running team.

“This year is really exciting,” Schoch said with a beaming smile. “We have a good shot at winning; so far we are looking really good.”

The women’s team added only two new runners in the offseason, and with a strong second-place finish at last year’s conference race, head coach Wayne Phipps is looking forward to another strong season

“We returned a lot of our women’s team from last year,” Phipps said. “We’ve been champions two out of the last four years and second in the conference last year.”

Phipps will be looking to slot incoming freshman Laurel Draper, who hails from Victoria, BC and come in as one of the best Canadian high school runners of the year. Even though she is a freshman, Phipps expects her to have an immediate impact on the team, saying that “she’s looked great in practice.”
