Men's , Women's Cross Country Earn NCAA Bids
The St. Lawrence men's and women's cross country teams are returning to familiar territory after last weekend's regionals in Rochester. The women won the regional title with ease, placing four runners in the top 10. The men placed fifth and earned an at-large bid to the nationals this weekend in Terre Haute, Ind. Men's soccer won its opening round NCAA tournament game 2-1 in overtime against Eastern Connecticut State, but had the tables turned on them by host Williams in a 2-1 overtime loss in the second round Sunday. Men's hockey saw its five-game unbeaten streak snapped in a 4-2 loss at Yale Saturday, after skating to a 3-3 tie at Brown Friday. Women's hockey extended its unbeaten streak to six by beating Brown 4-1 and Yale 5-1. Football saw its season come to an end after a 33-12 loss at the Merchant Marine Academy.
