NESCAC Volleyball Champs!!

Three cheers for the Wesleyan Volleyball team’s heroic capturing of the NESCAC Championship yesterday. The Cardinals have had a magical season, staying undefeated in the very competitive conference. But we lost two key players to injuries in the semi-finals, and so the pressure was intense. Undoubtedly helped by the home crowd’s boisterous support, including the return of several members of the 2017 Wesleyan Volleyball team’s NESCAC champs, Coach Ben Somera’s athletes beat a strong Williams team in straight sets. 

Now it’s on to the NCAA’s, but for now let’s savor this great victory and sweet season.


Go See the Wesleyan Volleyballers!



Have you heard the news? Wesleyan’s volleyball team has been on a tear. The women are undefeated thus far in NESCAC play and are riding a seven game winning streak! Frosh sensation Gabby Bennett ’20 was named the NESCAC Co-Player of the Week for her outstanding play. I’m about to get on a plane for a long Wesleyan trip, but I wish I could be in the Silloway Gymnasium to watch this exciting, young team do its thing!

Come to cheer them on: Friday night at 7 pm against Tufts and Saturday at 1 pm against Bowdoin.

And let’s not forget the stellar women’s tennis team. Eudice Chong ’18 and Victoria Yu ’19 had a dominant tournament last weekend at the ITA Regional Championships, claiming the doubles crown while Eudice finished second in singles.

Go Wes!!
