The Firedogs finished the Hall of Fame Invitational 2-1, defeating MIT and Brandeis before being blanked by Wellesley, leaving their record at 17-6 (4-4 NESCAC). Kristin Keeno ’13 was named to the All-Tournament Team, after her dominant role on the Amherst defense, talling 63 digs in the first match.

The Jeffs defeated the Cardinals 2-0 in Saturday’s Homecoming NESCAC matchup.

Before the game, the team honored the six senior players who will graduate from the team at the end of this season: Chrissy Cantore, Stephanie Clegg, Carly Dudzik, Rachel Lupien, Sarah McCarrick and Casey Silver.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Jeffs went to work on their 10th win, which would secure hosting rights for their NESCAC quarterfinal game next weekend.

As October hits Massachusetts in full force, the football team is beginning to catch its stride and look like a force in the NESCAC. After a pair of victories to open up the season, the Jeffs pushed their record to 4-0 in the last two weeks, triumphing over both Middlebury and Colby.

Last year, the women’s soccer team struggled to an 8-7-2 record, failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, and ended its season with a tough 1-0 loss to Williams in the NESCAC Championship Game.

The Jeffs vowed to change the script this season. So far, the results have been spectacular.

After enduring a grueling two-week span that included four key away NESCAC games, the men’s soccer team remains undefeated. After drawing with rival Williams, the Lord Jeffs proceeded to defeat Trinity, Colby and Bowdoin in succession. The No. 4 Jeffs (11-0-1, 7-0-1 NESCAC) have climbed into a first-place tie with No. 9 Wesleyan, setting up a blockbuster matchup between the two teams on Homecoming weekend.

The Jeffs took four out of five games in a long stretch of away games over the past week and a half, defeating Williams, Babson, Colby and Smith and dropping one to Bowdoin.

“Playing on the road is definitely a different experience, but we took it one game at a time and didn’t think of it as a five-game stretch,” co-captain Stephanie Clegg ’12 noted.

After a successful ITA/Regional Championship tournament at Williams, the top- ranked men’s tennis team officially began its defending its title in Baltimore on Oct. 8 with a well-earned 6-3 dual match win over 13th-ranked Johns Hopkins.

After winning the singles draw of the ITA/Regional Championship earlier this fall, sophomore Joey Fritz came from behind to defeat Hopkins’ Andy Hersch 2-6, 6-1, 6-0 in the No. 1 singles match. At No. 2 singles, Mark Kahan ’13 also needed three sets to snag the win, eventually upending Tanner Brown 6-0, 4-6, 6-2.
