Terrier Notebook: APR Scores, Panthers Training Camp, Baseball Outlook

Here's a look at some news of interest concerning Terrier athletics:

APR Scores

With all the talk about the postseason bans put in effect for schools like Appalachian State (men's basketball) for an APR score under the required level, we may lose sight of how well the Terriers did.

  • Wofford led the SoCon APR scores in ten sports, including a best-possible 1000 mark in womens' outdoor track and field, womens' indoor track, mens' outdoor track and field, mens' indoor track, womens' cross country, mens' tennis, and mens' golf.
  • Terrier Football ranks twelfth nationally with an APR score of 985. Not only is this ahead of big-name academic schools like Harvard and Stanford, but also of this year's season-opening FBS opponent, Georgia Tech.
  • Terrier Men's Soccer ranks fifth nationally with an APR score of 998.

Twenty-Year Anniversary of Panthers Training Camp at Wofford

This week, Wofford hosted a ceremony that marked the twenty-year anniversary of the Carolina Panthers training camp being held on campus. The ceremony included an unveiling of a statue honoring Jerry Richardson, Wofford alumnus and Panthers owner.

Baseball Outlook: Samford Series

The Terriers host the Samford Bulldogs on Friday and Saturday(doubleheader) to finish off the regular season. Wofford is coming into the series riding a three-game win streak comprised of a series sweep of UNCG. The Bulldogs just won two games of a three-game series against Appalachian State.

Samford stands at third place in the SoCon, with a 14-10 mark, while the Terriers find themselves fighting for sixth place with Furman and Appalachian State.

Wofford's record is currently at 28-25, which is the absolute best it's been since Steve Traylor's 2007 squad won the SoCon title.

Even one win in this series would be pretty helpful; anything giving a late-season push is beneficial. Two wins, however, would put us at 30 wins, and perhaps put a new face and a fresh outlook on the Terriers.
