Here’s the best thing to say about the University of Vermont’s fall sports season — at least it’s over.
Talk about futility: The Catamounts’ men’s soccer team, women’s soccer team and field hockey team combined for a 3-40-8 record. That’s not just an embarrassing mark; it’s also historic.
The UVM men’s soccer team, which went 1-10-5, matched its lowest win total in the 45-year history of the program. The Cats went 1-3-6 in 1970. The pitfall is uncharacteristic for head coach Jesse Cormier, who had no less than nine wins in each of his previous five seasons.
The UVM women’s soccer team went 1-13-2 under second-year coach Kwame Lloyd. That’s a record low for the Catamounts, whose win total has never dipped below three in 33 years.
The UVM field hockey team went 1-17 under 12th-year coach Nicki Houghton. The only other time since 1979 the program mustered just one win was in 1999.
