The Tiger Arena is set to open next August, but as Damon Lewis (@TowsonTV_Damon) reports, it could be ready for the players to practice in as early as February.
Soccer is widely known as the world's sport and @Towson_MSOC features many foreign born players on the roster which includes three from Germany. Sophomore Daniel Grundei is a defenseman and a captain for the Tigers. In the latest installment of A View From Kent Road, Milton Kent examines how Grundei has been adapting to American culture.
Later today @Towson_MSOC will take on cross town rival Loyola inside the Towson Soccer Complex.
Let’s Unleash the Roar
The Baltimore College Golf Weekend has come to an end and was very successful for the Tigers. Yesterday @Towson_WGOLF's Casey Van Dyke was on fire, when she went into the clubhouse her 74 was the best round shot that day in the tournament. After everything played out Van Dyke finished in third out of a 90-person field.
@Towson_MGOLF had relied on junior Joe Gunnerman the first two days of the tournament to make clutch putts but yesterday it was junior Matt Fry that sunk a five- footer to give Towson the win over George Mason and the match-play title.
Congratulations to @Towson_VB Alysha McCrery for being named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Tigers win the Montana Tournament Title this past weekend.
Staying with @Towson_VB you can hear how Katy Buck and Aubrey Kirven felt about the tournament win straight from the players'--uh fingers--in the latest edition of their blog Dig This.
As I told you before @Towson_MLAX participated in “The Program” a team building class held by former Navy Seals. “The Program” is designed to build teamwork as well as leadership. You can see photos of the Tigers completing the different tasks of the class.
A Look Outside Towson
The CAA has released its weekly football awards for this past weekend.

Countdown to William and Mary
We are just four days away from @Towson_FB facing the Tribe inside Johnny Unitas Stadium. I couldn’t be more excited. Hopefully you got even more amped up by the Fall Sports Pep Rally yesterday, which was a good time for all involved! Student Vouchers for the game are still available but act quickly because they are going fast!
Since this last week was a bye week for the Tigers the voice of the Towson Tigers Sprio Morekas took the time to tell fans how a broadcaster handles a bye week in the latest edition of From the Broadcast Booth.
Per the usual, the CAA Coaches participated in the weekly teleconference. You can here William and Mary Head Coach Jimmye Laycock as well as Tigers Head Coach Rob Ambrose here.
Thanks for reading another edition of the Morning Roar, be sure to check back the same time tomorrow for me. In the meantime, follow me on twitter @ZachMaskavich.
