Big soccer weekend for 49ers

The Charlotte 49ers' men's and women's soccer teams play home games this weekend, while the volleyball team opens its season on the road Friday at the East Carolina Classic.

-- The fifth-ranked men's soccer team opens its season Saturday at 7 p.m. at Transamerica Field against Denver. Charlotte (16-5-4 last season) has eight starters back from last season's team that made it all the way to the championship game of the College Cup. The 49ers get a stern test on Monday when they host Coastal Carolina, which is also ranked in most preseason national polls.

-- The 49ers' women, who started their season with a 2-1 victory at College of Charleston, are home Friday to Western Carolina (0-1) at 7 p.m. and Sunday to seventh-ranked Wake Forest (1-0-1) at 1 p.m. The Deacons,who are home to UNC Greensboro on Friday, started their season last week with a victory against
Richmond and a tie against UNC Wilmington. The Deacons are without all-American striker Katie Stengel for a while: she is playing for the United States in the U20 World Cup in Japan.

-- Charlotte's volleyball team plays Bethune-Cookman on Friday at 4 p.m. in the ECU Classic, followed by matches Saturday against Campbell (11 a.m.) and East Carolina (7 p.m.). The 49ers are led by senior Bianca Rouse, who needs 24 kills to reach the 1,000 mark for her career.

A "hit" man makes more money than me, too. What the Hell is your point? That the only measure in life we have is how much money we make? Please do NOT respond in your own moronic way that I am comparing Pep's life or morality to a criminal. I'm just pointing out your shallow thinking.

Bruce, why would we hate the Tar Hole athletic program? Everything wrong with college sports can be found in Chapel Hill. Keep on loving them, mullet head. Are you proud of your ignorance?
