The Mississippi State soccer team found a reason to be encouraged Sunday afternoon.
Despite falling to 0-10 in the Southeastern Conference, the latest effort for the Bulldogs may have been the best yet.
MSU lost a 1-0 decision to the 13th-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks at home and it is considered something to be something positive.
Former Starkville Academy athlete and freshman Bulldog Tiffany Huddleston likes the progress personally and the team.
"It's a lot of hard work and not one person on the team slacks off," Huddleston said. "It's been good to get in with a group of girls that have the same desire. There's a desire to win even though we have not accomplished much of that this year. We have made it to where we compete every game no matter who we are playing. Like coach (Aaron Gordon) said, this was a highly ranked team. We gave them a few fits, no one gave up and I'm glad to be a part of something like that.
"I feel like I've grown with my game in having to play different positions and that will only help me in the future."
