Senior Maria Ronderos placed in the top 15 overall for the first time this season as the Hurricanes returned from the UNCG Starmount Fall Classic on Tuesday.  Senior Christina Hirano also placed in the top 40 in the tournament, which was shortened due to bad weather. The Canes will compete this weekend at Waterlefe Classic in Bradenton, Fl.


After finishing their home stand this past weekend with wins against Virginia Tech and Virginia, the 12-2 Hurricanes will hit the road this weekend, traveling to North Carolina to face the 12-4 North Carolina Tar Heels on Friday night and the 11-4 NC State Wolfpack on Sunday afternoon.  The Canes are 2-1 in ACC play, with their one loss coming against Florida State.


The Soccer team aims to rebound from their loss against Florida State this weekend when they will travel to South Carolina to take on the Clemson Tigers.  The Canes, who are 6-3-1, will look to improve their ACC record. They will be back next weekend to face the Duke Blue Devils at home on Oct.7.
