Wiedergruen A-10 co-golfer of the week

News & Notes from the Charlotte 49ers:
  • Senior golfer Stefan Wiedergruen was named an Atlantic 10 co-golfer of the week for the week ending Oct. 5 after he earned a 17th-place finish at the PING/Golfweek Preview. Wiedergruen, who was the defending individual champion of the event, which regularly attracts a top 25 field, shot +4, 217. He leads the 49ers with a 73.3 stroke average after two events.
  • Former 49ers golfer Jonas Enander Hedin shot a 10-under-par 206 to capture the Swedish PGA Landmann Open on Sept. 27. Enander Hedin, a third team all-American who led the 49ers to an eighth-place finish at the 2008 NCAA Championships, shot four-under par 68 in the final round to win the event by one stroke. Enander Hedin played this summer in the Palmer Cup, a collegiate version of the Ryder Cup, clinching Europe's victory in the event with his singles' match victory. Enander Hedin is back in the United States and competing this week in the Tarheel Tour's Walnut Creek Open in Goldsboro, N.C.
  • The No. 20 men's soccer team (8-2), fresh off a loss at nationally-ranked Maryland, looks to get back on track with a game tonight at 7 p.m. at Fordham in the 49ers' Atlantic 10 Conference season opener. Charlotte dropped a 2-1 decision in overtime to the Terrapins on Tuesday, a day after earning its first Soccer America national ranking.
  • The women's soccer team (7-3-1, 3-0) looks to continue its undefeated mark in the A-10 with home games at 7 tonight with Temple and Sunday at 1 p.m. with St. Joseph's, both at Transamerica Field. The 49ers hold a 2-0-0 series advantage over both Temple and Saint Joseph's.
