UTM kicks off season

MARTIN, Tenn — The Skyhawks got a lot start to their season Friday night with a practice set to begin at 7 p.m. but weather delayed things.

Speaking of this season, head coach Jason Simpson was very optimistic about his teams future.

“We have an opportunity, we feel like we have good enough players and tradition in our program chasing an OVC conference championship,” said Simpson.  “Last year we were nine points short, 6-2 in the conference. This year our guys have the mentality and our coaches have the mentality as well that we will be there in the end. Long road to get there but we got some good players in our building.”

The team opens up their season week one against Cincinnati, September 1st.
