Saints Athletics
Four St. Lawrence cross country runners - graduate student Liz Ludovici, first-year Wendy Pavlus, senior Erik Donohoe and first-year student Eli Howard - qualified for the NCAA Division III Championships after strong performances at the regionals. Shawn Fensel scored with .2 seconds (yep, two-tenths of a second!) left on the clock to give the men's hockey team a stunning comeback tie against Quinnipiac, after beating Princeton 4-3. The women ran their win streak to seven with shutout wins over RPI and Union. Men's football capped its season with a 24-13 victory over WPI, finishing 4-5.

This program was last Friday, and alumni who work at Morgan Stanley came to campus to explain the various avenues one can take in finance as well as which personalities typically fit best in various divisions. As a student interested in entering this competitive field, I found this presentation to be incredibly helpful. Read more.
