Mitchell doesn't want the Cougars to get carried away with their early success, though. Not with a game against Humboldt State, an NCAA Division II team with a 2-1 record on Saturday.
"We're not going to look back at it too long," Mitchell said. "We're going to say we beat them and look forward to Humboldt."
College Division Notes
The Whittier football team went 0-9 last season, but the Poets posted a 15-3 victory over Claremont-Mudd last week in their first game under Coach Ken Visser, who was an assistant at Cal State Long Beach the past 10 years.
Redlands, the defending champion in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, had to struggle to a 27-20 victory over La Verne in its season and conference opener last week. Redlands can expect another strong test when it plays host to the University of San Diego (1-0) Saturday.
Cal State San Bernardino is off to a fast start in men's and women's soccer in its first year in NCAA Division II. The Coyotes improved to 4-1 in women's play with a 2-0 victory Monday over UC Santa Cruz, and the men defeated Cal State Hayward, 4-0, improving their record to 3-1-1.
