The first signing class is set to go for the inaugural season of SIU Saluki women's soccer.

Head coach Grant Williams Thursday announced the first 20 players...18 of them freshmen.

After 32 years with the SIU-Carbondale swimming and diving program, head coach Rick Walker will step down at the end of the current season.

The Kankakee native joined the Saluki staff in 1987, became the men's head coach in 1992 and took over the women's team in 2005. Walker has won nine conference championships during his tenure.

The Canadian national softball team will play a 25-game National Pro Fastpitch League schedule at Rent One Park in Marion next summer.

The Canadian team says the strong competition in the league will prepare it for the upcoming 2019 Olympic qualifiers and the 2020 Olympic Games.
