There's an old saying about handling adversity that can be applied to the Wildcats soccer team. It's not about what happens to you, it's how you accept it and move on from it.

After losing senior Travis Brinkman to a season-ending knee injury, the team has been forced to make adjustments and move on without their leader. Last week, the Cats split a pair of road games while getting contributions from many underclassmen who will be counted on to grow up in a hurry as the season progresses.
