[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he fall season looks promising for the Cardinals, which is no surprise after a 2015 filled with accomplishments and records.
The team took its third Mid-American Conference (MAC) regular season championship with a program-best 10-1 record in conference play. The overall 14-3-3 record was one win shy of the 2005 team’s school record.
“We’re delighted,” said head coach Craig Roberts. “I am immensely proud to be their coach. We’ll reflect, re-evaluate and come back even stronger this year.”
The Cardinals advanced to the MAC Tournament quarterfinals but lost to Akron on penalty kicks.
The Cardinals also:
- Tied program records for winning streak (eight) and unbeaten streak (nine, including a tie).
- Reached No. 68 in the RPI (Ratings Percentage Index), just below the 2002 team’s record No. 67, and finished at No. 75.
- Tied the league record, with five players on the All-MAC First Team.
