Men's soccer team ranked No. 24

Lots of soccer accolades Tuesday for the Charlotte 49ers:

-- The men's soccer team, following convincing wins over Davidson and College of Charleston this past weekend, entered the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll at No. 24. This is the team's first national ranking since the 49ers were No. 19 in the same poll in September 1998. Charlotte is also currently ranked No. 1 in the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region poll.

-- Charlotte sophomore forward Andres Cuero was named the Atlantic 10 men's soccer player of the week following his performance last weekend in the adidas Classic at Davidson. He scored a goal in Charlotte's 5-1 win over Davidson and had two more in the 49ers' 5-3 victory over College of Charleston. Cuero leads the 49ers with three goals and eight points.

-- The 49ers' women's team swept the A-10 awards this week with sophomore forward Whitney Weinraub named player of the week and freshman forward Jonna Handra named co-rookie of the week.
Weinraub recorded the school's ninth-ever hat trick with three goals in Charlotte's 8-0 win over Tennessee Tech last Sunday. She is the first player since 2002 to score three goals in a game. Handra scored her first two career foals, including the game-winner, in the 49ers' 3-2 come-from-behind win over UNC Wilmington last week.
