Go Petrels Athletics Update: Oct 4-Oct 10

Several teams will hold Senior Day this week as final regular season home games approach.

Men’s soccer remains undefeated and atop the leaderboard in Southern Athletic Association play. Last week included two wins.

Men’s Soccer Maintains First-Place Position with 3-1 Win at Birmingham-Southern

The Oglethorpe men’s soccer team earned a 3-1 victory over Birmingham-Southern Sunday afternoon in Alabama. With the victory, they extended their SAA unbeaten streak to 18 games, their SAA winning streak to 10 games, and their overall winning streak to six games.

Women’s soccer added its first conference victory of the season, and will look to add more during two homes games this weekend.

Women’s Soccer Knocks off Millsaps to Earn First Conference Victory of Season

The Oglethorpe women’s soccer team outplayed the homestanding Millsaps Majors Friday evening in Jackson, Mississippi, and got their reward with a second-half goal enough to lift them to a 1-0 SAA road victory. The win improved the Stormy Petrels to 4-8 on the season overall and 1-2 in SAA play.

Both the women’s and men’s golf teams traveled for invitationals early this week and brought home some solid showings.

Women’s Golf Finishes Fifth at General’s Invitational

The Oglethorpe women’s golf team got their stay in Lexington, Virginia, off to a good start Sunday, as they put up the third-place score through the first 18 holes at the General’s Invitational. They fired a 22-over-par 310 at the Lexington Golf and Country Club to finish the day 10 strokes back of first-place Carnegie Mellon.

Men’s Golf Finishes 10th at Tartan Invitational

The Oglethorpe men’s golf team finished their week at the Tartan Invitational in Ligonier Township, Pennsylvania, Tuesday with an 18-over-par 306 at the historic Laurel Valley Golf Club, giving them a 52-over 916 for the week and putting them in 10th place out of 12 teams, 43 strokes back of champions Wittenberg.

Results may not have favored the Petrels volleyball squad every night, but the crowds definitely did. The team did pick up a conference win over Centre in Dorough.

Volleyball Sweeps Centre for Conference Win

The Oglethorpe volleyball team earned their second SAA win of the season Saturday afternoon at Dorough Field House, defeating the visiting Centre Colonels in straight sets, 3-0. The win improved the Stormy Petrels to 4-14 overall and 2-7 in conference play. They earned their second victory of the season over Centre, as they also won a 3-2 barnburner Sept.

Congratulations to the two most recent Oglethorpe University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Players of the Week: Scott Zoino and Jacoby Sims.
