This week I would like to congratulate our men’s and women’s soccer programs for having very solid seasons.
Heading into the ACC tournaments, the men’s team had a 12-3-2 record and was ranked sixth nationally. The women’s team was 10-6-2. Both teams are considered potential NCAA Tournament selections.
The ACC is arguably the preeminent conference for men’s and women’s soccer. We are extremely proud of Coach Adair and Coach Bramble for having strong years against the best competition in the nation.
We wish them the very best in the upcoming NCAA tournaments.
Also, our men’s and women’s basketball programs are beginning. Coach Oliver Purnell is steadily building a very solid program at Clemson that can compete extremely well and becoming an NCAA Tournament caliber team.
Coach Cristy McKinney is in her second year of building our women’s program. We are very optimistic that within a reasonable period of time she will get our program back to being one of the elite programs in the ACC.
We are extremely pleased with the leadership of Coach Purnell and Coach McKinney. We look forward to exciting seasons in the years ahead.
Coach Jolene Hoover’s volleyball team has made significant strides this fall and has a record of 14-7 and 9-4 in the ACC heading into the weekend matches.
They have played extremely well. They are probably one of our most improved teams. With a lot of young players returning in the future, we feel very good about what our volleyball team has accomplished.
Congratulations are also extended to Itay Magidi for winning the individual ACC Cross Country Championship. That is a tremendous accomplishment. Itay is deserving of our strongest congratulations.
In Solid Orange, Terry Don Phillips Athletic Director
