Duquesne: Fall Sports through 9/14/08

Duquesne athletics is performing really well this season. Here is a quick mid-September look at the fall competition, before the Steelers-Browns kickoff.

Cross Country   Somewhat misleading 15-0 record from Labor Day weekend's Duquesne Duals, unique setup for individual-oriented sport. Next at Notre Dame in National Catholic Championship on Friday, Sept. 19.
Football 0-1 Idle this week, play Saint Francis at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20.
Golf   Today's tournament at Michigan State is first competition.
Men's Soccer 3-0-3 Won DU tournament beating Marshall and Lafayette; 7th in regional poll
Women's Soccer 2-1-2 Won both games this week vs. Youngstown State and Robert Morris
Men's Tennis   Opens season in tournament at Toledo next weekend
Women's Tennis   No results from this week's tournament at West Virginia. In Carnegie-Mellon Invitational last weekend, DU won two brackets: Tara Majdalani in singles and Zena Williams and Rachel McGowan in doubles.
Volleyball 9-2 Best ever start in 23-year program history; beat Navy and Hampton before losing to Fiesta Bowl host Northern Arizona; both losses to tournament host teams
