Westminster College students set off party favors and confetti flies in the air during the school’s pep rally to celebrate the men’s soccer team heading to the NCAA Division II Sweet 16. About 200 students attended the pep rally to cheer on the team on Thursday. Westminster’s president Barney Forsythe, men’s soccer head coach Andrew Bordelon and players spoke during the rally. The team will face Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa for sectionals of the NCAA Division III tournament on Saturday.
Reaching the Sweet 16 at two different schools, at two different levels, in two different positions hasn’t been all that different for Andrew Bordelon. As a player, Bordelon was part of a Drury University team that got there in the 2009 NCAA Division II tournament. Now, as a first-year head coach, Bordelon is at the helm of a Westminster men’s soccer team that is there for the first time in school history. Both achievements come down to confidence. “Personally — as a player — I went in extremely confident in my own abilities, but as a coach, I’m very confident in my players’ abilities and they’ve shown over these last 15 or 16 games what they can accomplish, what they can do and who they can play with,” Bordelon said Tuesday.
