CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte 49ers women's soccer team picked a perfect weekend for welcoming back former players, as it opened the Atlantic 10 slate with a pair of wins while the alumnae were in attendance over the weekend.

Between 20-25 former 49ers made the annual trek back to campus and were able to witness the current Charlotte squad defeat VCU 2-1 in overtime Friday and Richmond 2-0 Sunday. At halftime of Friday's match, the group was introduced to the crowd.

In between the two victories, the alumnae played a match against the current team Saturday morning and attended a social gathering later that night.
