NCAA Dreams Continue for Three Teams, End for One
The Fall season will continue for three St. Lawrence teams, but it ended earlier than another was hoping this weekend. Football, which had already clinched at least a tie for the Liberty League title and, thanks to a tie breaker, the automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament, capped its regular season with an impressive 27-7 win over WPI to claim the crown outright. The 5-5 Saints will travel to No. 2-ranked Mount Union on Nov. 20for the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Wendy Pavlus '11 continued her quest to repeat as national champion and the women's cross country team won its second-straight regional title Saturday in Oneonta. It was Pavlus' third straight regional first-place finish. The team will join the men's cross country squad, which placed second at the regionals, at the nationals next weekend in Iowa. Men's soccer saw its season end in heartbreaking fashion on MacAllaster Field Sunday, losing to Amherst 3-2 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Saints opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over SUNY IT Saturday, and held a 1-0 lead at half-time against Amherst, but the visitors rallied in an action-packed second half for the win. The Saints, who only graduate two players, finished the season with a 17-3-2 record. Women's hockey had one of its best weekends of the early season, downing No. 6 Boston College 7-3 Friday and then tying the Eagles 1-1 Saturday. Men's hockey had a tougher weekend, losing 4-2 to Harvard and 6-1 to Dartmouth.
