It’s August and that means it is the start of football season throughout the state.

And even though many eyes will be on Lincoln Riley’s bunch, it certainly isn’t the only Oklahoma Sooner athletic team that has its eyes on a better finish than last year.

In Sooner women’s soccer, the Big 12 named Kaylee Dao to the preseason all-conference team. She enters her redshirt senior season as one of the team’s leaders and one of the conference’s most potent offensive weapons.

She has led the goal scoring charge in Norman the past two seasons. Additionally, er eye for the back of the net usually comes in crunch time, for nearly half of her 16 career goals have won the match for the Sooners.

Yesterday was also report day for the Sooner volleyball team with the team’s first practice coming today.

The Sooners return a duo of First Team All-Big 12 selections in Kylee McLaughlin and defensive player Keyton Kinley, who were both, unsurprisingly, named to the All-Big 12 preseason team.

Both juniors ranked near the top of the conference in their respective categories, with McLaughlin leading the Big 12 in assists during conference play and Kinley led the conference in both digs and digs per set. Kinley was also an honorable mention selection by the AVCA as an All-American.

OU will look to build off a nice season last year in which it tied for 3rd in the conference after finishing in the bottom half the previous three seasons.
