While Saturday may have been the first official practice for the 2019-2020 UConn men’s basketball team, its goal was set way in advance. Alongside the practice court in the Werth Family Basketball Champions Center, behind a row of chairs and near extra equipment, there’s a large photo that follows the team wherever they go: American Athletic Conference Championship trophy.

The UConn women’s soccer team kicked off conference play with a tough loss to ECU (1-0) Thursday night. In the first half, UConn (4-4-1, 0-1 The American) came out strong in the first five minutes as Sophia Danyko-Kulchycky got a poke on goal, but it did not amount to anything. This was a common theme throughout the rest of the game.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past four months, UConn is going back to the Big East next year. As a result, Thursday’s 1-0 loss to ECU was the final American Athletic Conference opener ever for the UConn women’s soccer team. So in a sentimental fashion, let’s take a look at how the Huskies have done in the American openers during their tenure in the conference.

The Huskies’ Tribune: I’m Zoë Steck. I’m an athlete.

I played everything growing up: Basketball, softball, swimming and skiing. You name it, I did it. Athleticism is part of my nature. Being an athlete made me who I am. Twenty years later, I am a Division I soccer player for the second winningest program in NCAA women’s soccer history, and being an athlete is still my defining characteristic.

When I was in high school, I found myself constantly questioning who I was outside of softball. This was challenging, as I placed my self-worth in my performance in my sport for most of my high school career. I made it my mission to find my value outside of being a softball player.
