Cross Country Sweeps to Regional Titles at Home
It was a special weekend for St. Lawrence athletic teams, both on campus and on the road. Cross country hosted the Atlantic Regionals and SLU played off the home-course advantage by winning both events. Men's cross country won its first-ever regional crown with four runners in the top 11. Women's cross country won its third straight regional title and both teams will travel to nationals this weekend in Winnecone, WI. Men's soccer, which was forced to give up home-field advantage in the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament because of a lack of hotel beds for competitors in the area, took its frustration out on its opponents, beating SUNY Maritime 4-0 and host Western New England 3-2 in overtime. The Saints will host the next two rounds of play this coming weekend. Men's hockey continued its recovery from a slow start with wins over Princeton, 3-2, and Quinnipiac, 1-0 in overtime. Women's hockey beat Princeton 4-1, but dropped a 3-2 decision to Quinnipiac. Football ended its season on a high note with a 21-14 win at WPI.
