Honors for 49ers soccer players

Some soccer kudos this week:
  • Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer senior defender Ryan Swaim was named to College Soccer News' national team of the week for his performance against Winthrop and UAB over the weekend. Swaim led a 49ers backline which recorded shutouts in Charlotte wins over Winthrop and Alabama-Birmingham. The wins gave the 49ers the Charlotte/Nike Invitational title - their third tournament title this season.
  • Charlotte women's soccer freshman forward Oni Bernard was named co-rookie of the week by the Atlantic 10 Conference for her two-goal performance in the 49ers' 6-0 win over Francis Marion. She scored her first goal just 27 seconds into the game.
