The calendar rolls over to October let’s see how the Syracuse Orange fall sports fared last week.
Women’s Soccer- Syracuse dropped two home games last week. After falling to the Louisville Cardinals 3-0 on Friday, the Orange battled the No. 6 Florida State Seminoles before falling 1-0. Injuries have hurt the Syracuse offense but keeper Lysianne Proulx continues to put together a strong season. Proulx leads the ACC in saves per game (five) and is third in save percentage (.833). Syracuse is at the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Friday night.
Volleyball- The Orange lost their ACC opener to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets but finished the weekend on a strong note winning at the Clemson Tigers. Polina Shemanova leads the ACC in kills while Marina Markova is the conference leader in Service Aces. Syracuse will host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Duke Blue Devils this weekend.
THAT'S A WRAP AND A W.— Syracuse Volleyball (@CuseVB) September 29, 2019

Field Hockey- Syracuse won a pivotal road game over the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils on Charlotte DeVries’s overtime goal. That was the fifth game-winning goal for DeVries this season. Syracuse travels to play the California Golden Bears and Stanford Cardinal this weekend.
Ice Hockey- The Orange lost two games to the Clarkson Golden Knights last weekend. After dropping a close 4-3 game at home, Syracuse lost 5-1 on the road. Lindsay Eastwood led the Orange with two points against Clarkson. This weekend the Orange will host the Boston College Eagles.
Men’s Soccer- It was another draw for the Orange as they battled the Pittsburgh Panthers to a 1-1 deadlock. Hilli Goldhar scored the Syracuse goal in that one and on the season Ryan Raposo ranks 9th in the ACC in scoring with 11 points on the season. The Orange travel to face the Duke Blue Devils this Friday night.
Cross Country- The teams won’t compete until the Nuttycombe Invitational on October 18 but the Syracuse women were ranked 15th in this week’s USTFCCCA Coaches Poll while the men remain 12th. This is the highest ranking for the women since the 2016 preseason poll.
With football on the bye this weekend this is a great opportunity to catch some of these teams in action in-person or on the ACC Network. G’ORANGE!
