As most students left campus in the last couple of days to begin March break, the sports teams were busy preparing for their upcoming seasons. The lacrosse teams’ competitions began today with our important Little Three rival Williams. Both Wesleyan teams emerged victorious! The women put on an amazing display here at Smith Field. Kaylin Berger ’13 scored 6 goals for the Cardinals, and Kayla Ellman ’13 had three goals and an assist. Our goalie, Maggie Drowica ’12, was just amazing in net as we built a big lead, stopping 11 of the first 13 Williams’ shots.
The men were up in Williamstown for their opener, and they downed the Ephs 9-4. Graham Macnab ’14, Joe Porcelli ’14, and Teddy Citrin ’12 netted two goals a piece, and Grant Covington ’12 had a great game in goal.
Meanwhile in the Midwest, jumpin Tommie Lark ’12 placed fifth in the triple-jump competition at the NCAA Championships. Tommie repeats as an All-American this year.
Men’s Lacrosse, led another two goals from Teddy Citrin and two goals and an assist from Aidan Daniell, got by Hamilton 9-8. Grant Covington withstood a furious last quarter drive by Hamilton. The women’s lacrosse team gave nationally ranked Hamilton all it could stand, but fell 11-10 in overtime. Kaylin Berger added four more goals to her weekend total, and Liz Chabot ’12 added two scores.
Jefferson Ajayi ’13 was named an All-American wrestler at the Division III tournament this weekend. CONGRATULATIONS!
