1. Second Half Shooting Sends Charleston to Win over Eagles

[“I thought we followed our game plan the first half. We had to tempo the game and play slow which is unlike us, but with the situation we were dealt with we didn’t really have a choice. It was 30-29 where we needed it to be at halftime and I thought we did a nice job defensively and were pretty patient on offense,” said head coach Jeff Price.]


2. Martz Breaks CCSA Chamionship Time in the 50 Free

[Courtney Martz (Woodbine, Ga.) broke the CCSA Championships record time in the 50 freestyle with a time of 23.61. She followed that up with an even better time in the finals. She finished fourth with a time of 23.60.]


3. Lynndsey Hyter Named SoCon Track & Field Athlete of the Week

[Lynndsey Hyter (Dallas, Texas) was named SoCon Track & Field Athlete of the Week for her performance at the Carolina Invitational Friday.]


4. Softball is Set to Host The Holiday Inn Eagle Classic

[Georgia Southern's 3 p.m. game against Radford will be a special one for coach Johnson as she faces her former team. “It is going to be fun,” said Johnson. “I still stay in contact with the staff and some of the girls there. They are a very tough team, and they hit the ball very well. As long as we play like we can, it should be a good game.”]


5. Eagles Set for First Road Trip of the Season

[“Road matches are always good for team bonding,” said Miles on taking his team on the road for the first time this season. “We get to know each other better and see how we compete on the road.”]


6. Eagles Open Conference Play at Elon and UNC Greensboro

[“We are excited to kick off our conference matches this weekend. Both are teams that we had close matches with last season falling 4-3 and 5-2. The team is really fired up to come out on top this year after losing two heartbreakers last season,” said head coach Amy Bonner. “I am looking to my seniors: Molly [Maddox], Emma [Knight] and Shea [Huxtable] to lead our team as we head into our Southern Conference matches.”]


7. Baseball Opens 2009 Campaign Against Presbyterian

[“No question we have a pretty good track record at J.I. Clements. It’s nice to be able to start out with that kind of home stand to get the season underway. Hopefully we can get ourselves off to a good start, get some confidence and get some momentum early in the season before we head into conference play,” said head coach Rodney Hennon. “We’ve got a great facility to play in and great support from our fan base. I think that any time you can play at home there’s a comfort level for any team.”]


8. Eagle Vision Baseball Schedule Announced

[Eagle Vision's baseball schedule was announced Thursday by the athletic department. Live broadcasts include games against Georgia Tech, Winthrop, Furman and College of Charleston.]


9. Cougars cruise past Eagles

[“I don’t think there’s any question, in the last 10 minutes we were extremely fatigued,” said GSU coach Jeff Price. “When you get tired you don’t defend as well and your shots don’t look as good. I thought we got tired.”]


10. Cougars have enough in reserve

[The Cougars, thanks to a great spark from the bench, broke away from a tenacious Georgia Southern squad and finally won by a comfortable margin in earning their 20th victory of the season before a crowd of 1,682 at Hanner Fieldhouse. The Cougars improved to 20-7 and 12-5 in the Southern Conference. Georgia Southern, which dropped its eighth straight, fell to 7-18, 5-12.]


11. Bob Hunter commentary: Rumblings

[Antonio Henton is transferring again, this time from Georgia Southern, presumably because he lost his starting job in the last game of the season. Henton left Ohio State for Georgia Southern partly so he could play without sitting out a season and partly because his former high school coach, Rance Gillespie, was the offensive coordinator.]


12. Ladies ready for USF after double-header lost

[In the fourth inning Georgia-Southern began to go on a hot streak as they managed to score two runs. The Rattlers intensity was still high because the lead wasn’t insurmountable just yet. By the end of the sixth inning GSU had gone on a 6-0 scoring run increasing the score to 8-2.]
