Football
Hurricane fans have until 11:45 a.m. (Eastern) on Friday to bid on a chance to “Run Through the Smoke” with the Miami football team for the Nov. 15th Homecoming game vs. Syracuse as part of the school’s ongoing auction, at www.hurricanesports.com/ebay Other items, currently available for big through mid-day on Friday include: The locker used by Hurricane star Clinton Portis, who had 120 yards rushing Sunday for the Denver Broncos. A team poster signed by the 1997 Miami team, which represents the beginning of UM’s comeback as National Champions and a Div. 1A dominant football program! A hat signed by the current Hurricane coaching staff, sure to be a collector’s item for years to come.
Proceeds from the auction help support the University of Miami athletic department. The auction is part of a nationwide program with eBay Sports and OCSN, which partners with Miami and 144 university athletic departments and conferences to manage and maintain Official Athletic Sites. During the season, college football fans who show team spirit by buying licensed merchandise and memorabilia will make their dollars go the distance. From September through December, eBay Sports will track the amount of money collectively spent per team and release weekly top 25 standings. When the contest ends in January 2004, eBay will give the school that generates the most in sales a $25,000 donation to be used toward a scholarship-scoring a major victory for education.

Soccer
Freshman Shannon Sanguinetti scored the game-winning goal as the Miami soccer team beat South Florida 2-1 in Tampa, Fla. Sunday afternoon. The Hurricanes improve to 3-2-0 overall while the Bulls fall to 1-2-0 on the season. Miami was on the board first as freshman Kristen Chapman scored on a 20-yard shot deflected off of a USF player 13 minutes into the match. The Bulls responded ten minutes later as Laura Tucker scored from Katie Reed’s corner kick. The Hurricanes came out strong in the second half with 11 shots in the period to just three shots by the Bulls. The winning goal came at the 79:09 mark as Sanquinetti headed in a ball that bounced around in the box off a previously deflected shot. The Hurricanes out-shot the Bulls 20-12 for the match with Miami goalie Alex Alford making five saves.

Volleyball
The University of Miami Volleyball team fell to No. 20 Santa Clara, 3-2 on Saturday afternoon at the Wildcat Classic in Tucson, Ariz to record their second loss of the season. The Hurricanes (5-2) outplayed Santa Clara (5-1) in nearly every statistical category but could not edge out Broncos in the end. Santa Clara took the first game, 30-27 to jump out early to an early lead. Miami led the second game 28-20 before falling 31-29 to the Broncos. The Hurricanes struck back in the third game, 30-26 and tied the match up in the fourth game, winning 30-22. Santa Clara captured the victory in the fifth game, edging out Miami, 15-13. “This was a very hard fought match for us,” Head Coach Nicole Lantagne Welch said. “It was disappointing to lose because we had some chances to put it away and we just couldn’t do it. I think we just got a little bit tentative tonight.” The Hurricanes’ loss was highlighted by the play of junior outside hitter Elizabeth Tyson, who turned in 22 kills on a .308 hitting percentage and collected 16 digs for 24 points. “Elizabeth really had an outstanding match tonight,” Lantagne Welch said. “It was good to see her rebound from a disappointing match last night.” Junior outside hitter Valeria Tipiana had 16 kills in the match, along with 16 digs for 19 points. Tipiana was named to the Wildcat Classic All-Tournament team for her efforts over the weekend.
