The Mustangs suffered key injuries throughout the season and some downright bad
luck as they ended the year at 7-23. It was the first time since 2007 that the Mustangs
missed the Lone Star Conference Postseason Tournament.
MSU had some outstanding performances this season as senior Shelbi Stewart was
named first-team All-Lone Star Conference after pacing the attack with 2.73 kills per
set and recording 10 or more kills on 16 occasions. Junior Caitlin Wallace was chosen
to the All-LSC second team with her 2.50 kills per set and hitting a team best .245.
Sophomore Kristan Aduddell
was named to the LSC’s All-
Academic team as well.

The Midwestern State men
won their last two matches
at home, but two losses and
five ties spelled doom for the
Mustangs’ string of NCAA
Tournament appearances. The
Mustangs finished the season
10-2-5,
just missing the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2005. Midwestern,
at 2-2-2 in the Lone Star Conference, finished second in league play for the season.
But the five ties, including a 1-1 draw at Incarnate Word on the Cardinals’ tying goal
with less than 1:30 to play in regulation, didn’t sit well with the Mustangs.
Midwestern did collect plenty of postseason awards for its play on the year.
Sophomore forward Len Smith was named to the Daktronics All-South
Central Region second team as was senior midfielder Aaron Douthit.
The Mustangs’ reign at the top of the Lone
Star Conference in cross country came to an
end, but MSU’s thinclads were once again
impressive in 2012. The Mustangs won two
meets this season, but finished second to West
Texas A&M in the LSC Championships,
ending a string of four consecutive LSC titles.
Changes in the NCAA’s South Central
Region helped force the Mustangs to seventh
in the regional championship as perennial
national contenders from the Rocky
Mountain Athletic Conference edged out
the Mustangs from competing at the national
championships as a team.
