2-0 volleyball weekend

The Wildcats’ match-winning streak is now at eight after weekend wins over Cal State Bakersfield and Cal State Los Angeles. It took the Wildcats five games to finally beat Bakersfield, and Chico State swept Los Angeles in three games to end the trip Saturday. The Wildcats are 12-1 overall, 7-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.

‘Cats go winless on road

The women’s soccer team couldn’t carry its early season success on the road as the team lost 1-0 at Sonoma State on Friday and finished in a 1-1 draw at Humboldt State on Sunday. The only goal scored by the Wildcats this past weekend came from sophomore Abby Stretch. This weekend’s action leaves the Wildcats at 5-2-3 overall, 5-1-1 in the CCAA.

Men’s soccer evens up

After losing 1-0 to Sonoma State on Friday, the men’s soccer team came back Sunday and came away with a 1-0 victory over Humboldt State on Sunday. The lone goal against Humboldt State was scored by junior Evan Armstrong. The Wildcats are 5-5 overall, 4-3 in the CCAA.

Rice’s TD mark tied

New Hampshire wide receiver David Ball has tied the Division I-AA touchdown record of 50, which was previously held by Jerry Rice. The record-tying touchdown came during a 56-14 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday. Ball scored three touchdowns in the first half before sitting out most of the second half of the blowout win.

Two arrested in shooting

Two men have been charged in connection with the shooting that wounded five members of the Duquesne University basketball team. The men charged are William Holmes, 18, and Brandon Baynes, 19. Neither is a student at the university. The attacks happened in the early morning hours Sept. 17.

Hockey ad draws scorn

The University of Colombia’s ice hockey team is apologizing for language used in ads that could be offensive. On fliers distributed for recruiting purposes, the phrase, “Stop being a pussy,” was seen as off-color as was responded to by student government and athletic department officials. Both bodies are still determining what action should be taken for the team’s actions.
