Any team that wants to compete at a high level must play hard and have trust in one another. For the Houston Cougars soccer team this year, that seems to be no issue.
The Cougars set a program record by opening the season 6-0-1 after winning six consecutive games to start the year. The streak outperforms the team’s 5-0-1 start in 2021, which went on to win 13 games in that season, a program record.
Building trust with new teammates
Since the end of the 2022 campaign, Houston has added 14 new players, including junior midfielder Alexis Fowlkes, who played in 17 games at Texas Tech for two seasons prior.
