‘Canes jump into top 25

The women’s soccer team, for the first time since 2001, is back in the top 25. The latest Soccer America Poll has the ‘Canes at No. 25, and they have also received votes in the NSCAA and Soccer Buzz.

The Hurricanes have been led by strong play from freshmen Brittney Steinbruch and Lauren Singer, who lead the team with 35 and 20 points, respectively. This, coupled with strong goaltending from senior Lauren McAdam, has the ‘Canes vying for ACC and NCAA supremacy.

Wright’s ankle may not be ‘right’ in time for NC State

The University of Miami quarterback situation has been a hot topic all season, and it has now turned into a ‘sore’ spot for the team.

Senior quarterback Kyle Wright left the game against Florida State last week because of an ankle injury, and it now seems that the injury may be worse than anticipated, leaving him questionable for the game against NC State.

Junior quarterback Kirby Freeman was also injured in the game, when he was sandwiched between two FSU defenders, leaving Freeman with a sore chest and back.

Thus, the bye week comes as a blessing for the ‘Canes, as they do not retake the field until Nov. 3, when they face NC State. This will give both quarterbacks a chance to rest and heal, after the physical pounding they took against Florida State.

If for some reason, both Wright and Freeman are unable to go, junior Jake Byrne could get the nod from Head Coach Randy Shannon.
