Men's Soccer Claims League Title, Football a Game From NCAA Bid
The hottest team on campus right now, men's soccer, ran its unbeaten streak to 13 games and locked up first place in the league with a pair of crucial 1-0 wins over Hobart and Hamilton. The Saints host Clarkson on Saturday in their season finale and then will host the Liberty League Tournament. The other streaking team is the rejuvenated football team, which downed RPI 14-3 to maintain its stranglehold on first place in the Liberty Lleague. The Saints, who have won four of their last five games and are undefeated in the league, need a win in one of their last two games or a loss by Hobart to earn their first trip to the post-season since 1982. Men's cross country was led by Dan Ramsey '11's first-place finish to claim the NYSCTC title. The women's cross country squad also won the NYSCTC crown, paced by an overall victory by Wendy Pavlus '11. Women's soccer upset regionally ranked Hamilton 2-1 after dropping a 2-1 overtime decision to William Smith. Men's hockey remained winless in its young season after losing 3-1 and tieing 3-3 against Western Michigan. Women's hockey lost 2-1 at Boston University and 5-3 at New Hampshire. Swimming and diving opened its season with both teams defeating Clarkson. Members of the men's lacrosse team successfully "trucked over lymphoma, pulling a 72,000-pound truck, to raise funds and awareness for the Lymphoma Research Foundation. Volleyball bested Clarkson before a record crowd in its "Dig Pink" event benefiting breast cancer research, raising about $6,000 in the process.
