Transcript u H ended its seventh season of Conference USA soccer competition with a 2-0 loss to Charlotte, a team competitive within the conference but abysmal in non-conference play. The Cougars missed a scoring opportunity late in the match when Nikki Hawkins failed to convert a free kick from the 20-yard line. As young as UH's soccer program is, it has passed the stage where missed opportunities are heartening. The 2004 Cougars did not improve on their promising record of a year ago, finishing the season 2-8 in conference play and 5-14 overall. Head coach Bill Solberg said that one of the goals he set early in his tenure at UH was for the program to improve to the point that it could face, and consistently compete with, quality opponents both in and out of conference. The Cougars' 2004 schedule was among the toughest in the conference. At times, it seemed that Solberg's team was overmatched by its itinerary. The Cougars failed to score in 2004 against elite C-USA competition: Saint Louis, Alabama-Birmingham and Solberg's alma mater, Marquette. But UH did post a respectable non-conference record of 3-5, including a 3-2 record against Texas-based schools. UH will face a new challenge next season with the loss of Hawkins who was named All- Conference USA Second Team in November. Hawkins was an All-Conference athlete in three of her four seasons at UH, including a First Team mention in 2003. She leaves UH as the program's career record-holder in points (63), goals (27) and total shots (153). he 2004 season presented head coach Bill Solberg with an unfamiliar but welcome challenge — structuring a roster around star talent. Next season, Solberg will face the challenge of replacing Nikki Hawkins, who in her senior season became one of the most honored female athletes in school history. Story by Mark Smith |f fj 108
