Sports briefs 10/4

Women’s soccer

The women’s soccer team got its first ACC win of the season with its 3-0 win over the Clemson Tigers at Riggs Field in South Carolina. Senior Brittney Steinbruch’s assist in the 58th minute tied her with Britney Butcher as the program’s all-time leading scorer with 73 points. The Canes will play at Cobb Field on Thursday against the Duke Blue Devils.

Women’s tennis

The women’s tennis team kicked off one of college tennis’ biggest events of the year, the 2010 ITA/Riviera All-American Championship, on Saturday. Junior Gabriela Mejia and freshman Kayla Rizzolo were both unable to make it out of the prequalifying singles round. They were still set up to play doubles, however. The tournament is scheduled to conclude Sunday.

Cross-country

Freshmen Connor Adams and Brooke Dovell had successful races once again as the Canes came back from competing in the Ninth Annual Greater Louisville Classic. Dovell ran the 5K course in 18:23.88, and the men all managed to improve on their 8K times. The Canes will be off and running again on Oct.15 at Statson’s Hatter Invitational.

Swimming and diving

The swimming and diving team kicked off its season Friday at the Florida Invitational in Gainesville. After one day of action, the women’s swimming team sat in third place, with its best showing of the day coming on the 400-yard medley relay, where the Canes beat last year’s personal best time, finishing in 3:45.14.
