Random Thoughts
I used to like once a week when Larry King would write a column in USA Today with random interesting thoughts. So I will attempt to replicate that with some thoughts about 49ers athletics.
The 49ers men’s soccer team is ranked #9 in the latest NSCAA poll and the 49ers women’s soccer team is ranked #25 in the NSCAA Poll...Charlotte joins Stanford, North Carolina, UCLA, Wake Forest, Ohio State and Maryland as the only seven schools with men’s and women’s soccer teams ranked in the Top 25...The men’s soccer team is on an 11-game unbeaten streak while the women’s team is on a 10-game unbeaten streak...Women’s soccer senior Hailey Beam needs two goals to tie Courtney Cook’s (1994-97) school-record 36 career goals and she needs three points to tie Cook’s school-record 102 career points...Women’s soccer freshman Lacey McGowan has scored four goals this season and they have all come off of Hailey Beam corner kicks...Charlotte and Dayton are the only two athletic programs in the A-10 that their volleyball, men’s soccer and women’s soccer teams are among the top four teams in their respective sports standings...Last weekend, 49ers women’s soccer seniors Hailey Beam, Lauren Brown, Leah Zappone and Nicole Mercer participated in their final regular-season home games...Those four players have helped the 49ers win 60 games and capture three A-10 regular-season titles and two A-10 Tournament titles during their careers...This weekend, 49ers men’s soccer seniors Luke Exley, Adam Gross, David Martin, Nathan Mathers and David Martin will be playing in their final regular-season home games...These five seniors have led the resurgence in the 49ers program by leading the 49ers to an A-10 Tournament Championship game as well as national rankings in each of the last two seasons...Today, the Atlantic 10 released their preseason women’s basketball predictions and preseason All-Atlantic 10 teams...The 49ers captured the A-10 Women’s Basketball Tournament title last season and the 49ers were picked to finish second in a vote of the league’s 14 head coaches...The 49ers have finished among the top four teams in the A-10 in each of their four previous seasons in the league but this is the highest preseason ranking that the 49ers received in the A-10...Senior guard Aysha Jones, who enters her senior season needing to score 198 points to become the 17th player in school history to score 1,000 career points, was voted preseason first-team All-Atlantic 10...Junior guard Shannon McCallum, who was A-10 Sixth Player of the Year, was voted preseason second-team All-Atlantic 10.
