Colorado-Colorado Springs soccer coach Eddy Dietz reaches for the century mark
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs soccer coach Eddy Dietz will be trying to win his 99th and 100th career matches as the Mountain Lions face Westminster College at 1 p.m. Saturday and Montana State-Billings at 11 a.m. on Monday.
Dietz is currently 40th on the NCAA Division II winningest active coach's list and has a 98-83-18 career record. He has led the Mountain Lions to a .500 or better record in eight of his 10 seasons at the university.
Westminster brings a 2-1 record into Friday's match against Metro State in Denver. The Griffins have faced UCCS three times, winning once.
Montana State-Billings has remade itself since last season's 3-16 disappointment. With less than half of the roster returning, the Yellowjackets stunned Metro State by playing the No. 14 ranked Roadrunners to a 1-all tie on Sunday.
UCCS has won all six meetings against MSU-B.
