Noles nix Bulls

A victory over Florida State continues to elude the USF women’s tennis team. The Bulls fell to the Seminoles 5-2, winning only No. 4 and No. 6 singles.

USF lost No. 1 and No. 2 doubles and did not finish the third. The Noles quickly dispatched the first three singles, not needing any more than two sets to win.

With the loss, the Bulls fall to 2-4 while the Seminoles improve to 7-3.

USF makes debut at Pinehurst

The USF women’s golf team will make its season debut this weekend in Pinehurst, N.C. The College of Charleston and the University of Virginia are holding the Pinehurst Challenge on Pinehurst No. 8 this weekend.

The Bulls are coming off of a hot fall season, where they finished No. 1 in two of their last three events. The golf match starts Friday, and will feature 18 teams including last year’s event champion, East Carolina.

Former Bull No. 2 in world

Former USF track and field athlete Kemel Thompson has been ranked No. 2 in the world for 400-meter hurdles. Track & Field News published the rankings in the December 2003 edition.

Thompson, representing his native home Jamaica, ran the 400 in 48.05 seconds at the London Grand Prix on Aug. 8, 2003. Thompson holds records at USF including 400 hurdles, 4×100 relay and 4×400 relay. All records were obtained in 1996.
