Wingo's hot streak continues

Not only does Macky Wingo have one of the best names in women's college soccer, but she's playing as well as anybody in the country these days.

Wingo scored three more goals Friday in Charlotte's 3-1 victory against La Salle in the semifinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament at Rhode Island. She's now got eight goals in three games. Her five goals in two victories last week earned hear national player of the week honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Wingo and the 49ers face rival Dayton at 1 p.m. Sunday for the league title. A berth in the NCAA tournament is at stake.

-- Charlotte's men's soccer team, the A-10's regular season champion by virtue of Friday's 2-0 victory against UMass, gets a first-round bye in the league tournament next week at Transamerica Field and will play a semifinal game at 8 p.m. Friday.

It's going to be a huge weekend on the 49ers' campus. In addition to all the men's soccer (which begins Thursday), the men's basketball opens its season at 4 p.m. Friday at Halton Arena, followed by a volleyball game.
On Saturday, both basketball teams play at Halton, with the soccer final scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
