EXCITING TIMES FOR LOBO SOCCER! Want to get a good bit of information out to you, and I know you are itching to hear the latest and greatest regarding New Mexico Soccer. I'm real of proud of our teams commitment to academic excellence. The team gpa for the fall semester was 3.43! One of our best semesters ever. Three players were drafted by Major League Soccer (MLS) teams in the January draft: Blake Smith was drafted by the Montreal Impact with the 8th pick of the draft, Devon Sandoval was drafted by Real Salt Lake with the 29th pick and Nik Robson was drafted by Toronto FC with the 39th pick of the supplemental draft. All three are currently in preseason camp and are doing well. 

Yesterday was NATIONAL SIGNING DAY, and we are very excited about our 2013 RECRUITING CLASS. Eight new Lobos, five of whom started classes in January and are in their fourth week of training with the team. Here is the link to our website article with pictures and bio info.
