Coastal’s fall sports teams face big games, big names

The Coastal Carolina football team isn’t the only Chanticleers squad facing big games against big names this weekend.

While the gridiron Chants take on traditional SEC power Georgia between the Sanford Stadium hedges in front of 90,000 on Saturday, the other fall sports teams also will be taking swings at bigger schools in hopes of representing CCU well over the weekend.

The CCU men’s soccer team is hosting the Coastal Carolina Tournament on Friday, when the Chants (4-1) host Appalachian State at 7:30 p.m. They take on No. 21 Ohio State at 2:30 p.m. Sunday in hopes of knocking off their second ranked squad this month. Coastal defeated No. 16 Virginia Commonwealth last weekend.

The Lady Chants (0-6-1) soccer squad is still seeking their first win of the season, and they’ll have to do so against a tough Tennessee team. The Lady Volunteers host Coastal at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Coastal volleyball squad makes a trip to Davidson for a four-team tournament over the weekend. The Lady Chants knocked off North Carolina-Wilmington on Tuesday and look to make another successful trip to the Tar Heel State.

The CCU men’s golf team opens the 2011 season this weekend in Colorado Springs at the Air Force Academy’s Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational. The 18-team tournament will be a tough test for a young Coastal squad seeking to extend the program’s streak of success with a ninth straight NCAA Regional appearance.

The men’s and women’s tennis teams make short trips but face some big-time competition in their respective tournaments. The CUU men play in the North Carolina-Wilmington Invitational, while the Lady Chants compete in the College of Charleston Invitational.

The CCU men’s and women’s cross country teams will host the CCU Invitational/Big South Preview beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday.

The CCU women’s golf squad is the only fall sport not in action this weekend, but the Lady Chants are competing against some of the top programs in the nation in the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colorado, starting Monday.
