1. Golf Finishes Sixth at Maryland Intercollegiate

[“We were hoping for a top five finish. We went up there and with the craziness of the weather (Tropical Storm Hanna) it was a wild weekend,” said head coach Larry Mays. “It is our best start in a few years though. Drew got off to a good start and Jordan played solid all day long. We were breaking in a rookie (Sean), who had a rough first round then came back to shoot 4-under so that was a pretty strong showing for a freshman. Joe and Spencer were right there as well.”]


2. Eagles Finish Tenth in Eye Opener Invitational

[The Georgia Southern cross country team finished tenth at the 25th annual Eye Opener Invitational Saturday.]


3. Women’s Soccer Loses Home Opener 2-1

[“We did not seem to gel well out there. Charleston Southern is a good team and they gave us trouble today,” said Coach Hart.]


4. Women’s Tennis Concludes Brevard Mountain Invitational

["I was really excited about how we competed at the tournament. I am also proud of how my upperclassmen performed. It was a great start to the season," said Coach Bonner.]


5. Govs showing improvement

["We had them were we wanted them, the fourth quarter came around and we didn't perform in the fourth quarter," junior linebacker Daniel Becker said. "We had two or three injuries in the game Kit (Hartsfield) and Tremayne (Townsend), especially, and that hurt us in the fourth quarter with depth. The guys were tired. But in the end, with the Xs and Os, we've got to match them man-for-man. We did it for a while, but we also missed tackles."]


6. Bears stun Colts

[A second-round draft pick out of Tulane, Forte went into the halftime break with 14 carries for 100 yards. That total was two yards short of the Bears’ best rushing performance for a (italics) game (end italics) in 2007, by Adrian Peterson on Dec. 23 in a victory over Green Bay.]
