Freshmen goalkeeper gets national recognition and other weekend sports news


The men’s soccer team smashed St Joe’s, 6-1 today and improved to 6-3-2 with a 2-0 A-10 record. That’s the most the Niners have scored in a game since '98 (6 vs UNC Asheville).

The women’s soccer team beat St Joe’s, 3-1 (3 goals in the first 20 min) and improved to 7-3-2 with a 2-0 A-10 record.

The volleyball team got their first conference win over Duquesne in a sweep, moving to 12-8, 1-3 in the A-10.

Niners complete a Sunday sweep in olympic sports!

Hopefully the Men’s soccer team can make a nice run in conference play and make the conference tournament!

FYI, Charlotte will host the 2006 A-10 Men’s Soccer Championship November 2-5 at Transamerica Field. Hopefully we will get a fair # of students and support!

Thank you to all the fans for your tremendous support this weekend. We had such loud and supportive fans this weekend … we actually missed breaking the all-time attendance record on Friday but only 10 people! The players talk about the crowd and what a difference it makes for them and their play.

We will not be playing at home again for 4 weeks. This will be a long and difficult stretch for us, but will play on the road knowing you are behind us, and waiting to welcome us home on October 27th, versus Xavier.

Then please also join us on Senior Day, Sunday October 29th, to honor Kelsie Ormsby, our only senior.

Impressive crowd, indeed. Good luck on the road trip, coach.
