Men's Soccer junior forward Bradlee Baladez and sophomore midfielder Braeden Troyer were both named to the All-Conference USA Second Team, and senior defender Mike Mangotic earned third-team honors.

Mangotic earns the first postseason award of his career
Sophomore defender Christa Neary has been named to the SEC Community Service Team for women's soccer. Christa Neary spent time this summer helping at a camp where she ran soccer drills and spoke to the kids about the benefits of an active lifestyle. A regular visitor with fans, Neary signed autographs at a community event and participated for the second year in a row in the annual "Light the Night" charity walk, which benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY
fan photo was sent to us by Caitlyn Zimmerman. Caitlyn writes:
"This is Sir Spur (yes, after Sir Big Spur). He's a little Yorkshire terrier who, at the time of the first photo, was only 2 lbs. He's now a whopping 3.4 lbs and still won't fit in any pet jerseys we can find (they're all way too big!). We're still working on teaching him to bark on command when prompted, 'Go Cocks!'"
We think he looks great in his Gamecock collar! Check out more Gamecock Pets in our Facebook album!
