Now, with six national championships, 16 College Cup appearances and the NCAA record for wins under his belt, Jerry Yeagley is one of seven inductees who will be inducted into the IU Hall of Fame Class of 2009 on Nov. 6.
Strong defense and an inability to capitalize on scoring opportunities resulted in a tie and a loss for No. 7 IU men’s soccer this weekend against two top-5 opponents at the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic.

Indiana fell 2-1 to Drake on a late goal in the final three minutes of Thursday night’s exhibition game in Ft. Wayne at the National Soccer Festival.

The men’s soccer team will look to extend its unblemished preseason streak in Ft. Wayne against Drake University. The team will also play Depaul in the tournament.
They looked like a splatter of ketchup with a small dab of mustard. A huddle of red jerseys, except for freshman goalkeeper Luis Soffner in yellow, gathered on the field before their second game of the night. Only 15 minutes divided Wednesday’s two matches for the IU men’s soccer team, which tied Cincinnati, 0-0, and returned to the field to tie IUPUI, also nil-nil.
Senior back Ofori Sarkodie dribbles the ball across the pitch April 8 at the soccer practice fields. The Hoosiers will compete in their third and fourth home contests, the first two having resulted in victories against Evansville and Butler.
The practice fields are barren. Nine players are gone. One assistant coach has been swapped for another. With three additions to the IU men’s soccer team, the Hoosiers are using the spring season to integrate a new starting lineup and a former player turned coach.
