Welcome to our inaugural Charlotte 49ers Pick Axe Pick, where every week we’ll select the top performer in Charlotte athletics from the previous week. For our first week, we couldn’t pick just one, so we picked two–Carrie Dail and Amanda Jones from the women’s soccer team.
There is a little bit of a friendly rivalry between the senior Dail and the sophomore Jones. Right now, Jones and Dail are tied for the team lead with five goals a piece. Jones, though, has a little bit of an emotional edge as she tied and then won the match over VCU on Friday. Meanwhile, Dail figured in both Charlotte goals in a 2-0 victory over Richmond on Sunday (one goal, one assist) to help the Niners move to 2-0 on the A-10 slate.
We’ll see what other tricks the duo has up their sleeves. But if this weekend is any indication, the Niners will be tough to beat down the stretch.
