Pretty much everybody during a very strong weekend for UB sports.

Let's start with The Harvey Cup..

Buffalo Wins Eighth Straight Harvey Cup - Buffalo Athletics
On a clear, crisp morning on the Tonawanda Creek the University at Buffalo rowing team won the Harvey Cup for the eighth straight year. The UB Varsity 8 boat (6:49.4) defeated Eastern Michigan (7:00.9) with relative ease to win the trophy named for former UB Associate Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator Nan Harvey who passed away in September 2003.

The Cup was held by Eastern Michigan University, the only other MAC institution which supports rowing, from its inception in 2003 until 2006 when the Bulls first claimed the Cup. Buffalo has won every Cup since 2006 and show no signs of giving it up any time soon.

Men's Tennis got their white whale!

One thing that has eluded the Men's tennis team since joining the MAC was a win at Kalamazoo, this weekend they got that out of the way

Bulls Score 4-3 Upset Win Over Western Michigan in MAC Opener - Buffalo Athletics

The win by the Bulls also snapped an eight-match winning streak by Western Michigan that included a victory over Michigan State, ranked number 43 in the country.

They then went on to take out Toledo.

Women's Tennis getting back to full strength

Womens Tennis has beeb struggling without Tanvi Shah, but with the UB start coming back they Bulls can make noise in the MAC.

Strong Singles Lead Bulls To Impressive 5-2 Win Over Bowling Green - Buffalo Athletics
Forced to miss both matches last week and pulling out of her match yesterday due to injury, junior Tanvi Shah was brilliant this afternoon, overcoming a first-set loss to win the second set 6-4, sending the match to a third. Shah was down 4-3 in the third set when she held her serve to tie it up and then picked up a huge break, going ahead 5-4 with her serving for the match. Shah was able to put her opponent away in just under three hours, clinching the match for the Bulls.

Softball Starting to get on track

After a rough start to the season it looks as if Tori Speckman is trying to help pull her team back over the top

David and Speckman Named Athletes of the Week - Buffalo Athletics
Tori Speckman (Alvin, TX/Alvin) of the softball team earned a win and a save in UB's series sweep at Eastern Michigan. The junior righthander picked up her fourth win of the season as she pitched 4.1 innings of relief in UB's 5-3 win over the Eagles on Sunday. In Saturday's contest, she recorded her third save of the year, tying the school record. Speckman leads the UB pitching staff with 54 strikeouts this season.

Track And field ran up and down the east coast!
