Bragging Rights for Bellamy

USC men's tennis senior Rob Bellamy cruised to the title at the Battle in the Bay in San Francisco this weekend.

Bellamy enjoyed a bye in the Round of 64, then didn't drop a set in the next three matches (plus an opponent withdrawal), which earned him a spot in the championship. He met Cal Poly's Ben Donovan, the 5-seed in the tournament, in the title match. Bellamy, whose mother was an NCAA singles champion at USC, dispatched of Donovan, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-4.

Bellamy became the fifth Trojan in seven years to win the Battle in the Bay singles title.

Bellamy is undefeated in singles play throughout the fall season so far, with three wins in the Porsche Napa Valley Tennis Classic earlier this month.

Next up for the Trojans is the Saint Francis Health System ITA Men's All-American Tournament, starting on Saturday.

Goal Getters, Record Setters

USC women's soccer kept the ball rolling and set a school record on Friday with its seventh consecutive shutout win.

The squad's 4-0 win over Arizona broke the USC record set back in 2006 and also marked head coach Keidane McAlpine's 100th win as a Division I head coach.

During the current win streak, USC has defeated Pepperdine, Georgia, Auburn, LMU, UNC, Kansas and Arizona by a combined tally of 19 goals to zero. The Trojans have also tied the school record for minutes without allowing a goal (654), which they will look to extend at Oregon on Thursday.

Goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme has racked up 34 saves during the winning streak. Only eight goalies in the nation boast more shutouts than Prudhomme this season. The Aliso Viejo, CA native has earned two Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Week awards this year, while defender Ally Prisock earned Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 13 for her efforts in keeping the shutout streak alive.

The Trojans, who now stand at 7-2 (1-0 Pac-12), head to Eugene this week to take on Oregon, who is 6-3-1 (0-1 Pac-12) and averages 1.5 goals per game.

The Sun Devils are 4-0, but they just missed out on the latest AP Top 25, coming in at No. 26.


Polo Places Third

| No Comments
USC men's water polo took third place in the Mountain Pacific Invitational in Berkeley, CA this weekend.

The Trojans opened up the tournament with a 21-4 win over No. 19 Santa Clara and a 9-4 win over No. 7 Long Beach State the next day. Just hours after their win over LBSU, the No. 2 Trojans faced off against No. 3 Cal, and suffered their first loss of the season. USC entered the fourth period down 8-3, but mounted a furious comeback, only to ultimately fall by a score of 10-8.

The Trojans bounced back with an 8-3 win over No. 4 Pacific the next day to take third place overall. UCLA won the tournament, while Cal placed second.

Grant Stein (pictured) led the Trojans with nine goals across the four games, including two against Pacific, who USC faces again this Saturday. Goalie McQuin Baron racked up 42 saves.

This is the second straight season in which USC has won its first eight games and lost its ninth, and this year the Trojans are aiming to take one more step than they were able to last year, by winning the NCAA Championship.

Next up is a 1 p.m. clash with Pacific at USC's Uytengsu Aquatics Center on Saturday, Oct. 1.
