Men’s soccer, after some midseason setbacks has regained its momentum with a 2-1 home victory over Harvard this weekend. If they win their next game against Cornell, the Lions may win a piece of the Ivy Title. Women’s soccer is on an upward trend, beating Dartmouth on Oct. 22. Senior midfielder Liz Wicks has been the women’s soccer player to watch. With two goals within ten minutes against Dartmouth, she helped facilitate the team’s comeback.
The fall season ended on a positive note for both men’s and women’s golf, as the teams finished in third and second places respectively. In The Classic at Shelter Bay, junior Michael Yiu placed fourth alongside sophomore teammate Andrew Kim. Sophomore Michelle Piyapattra shot a competition-best 149 at the Harvard International.
Both men’s and women’s cross country had great showings at the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational, hosted by the University of Wisconsin. The men’s squad came in 18th place out of 39 teams and the women came in 27th out of 44 teams. Senior Kyle Merber led the men in 44th place out of 270 runners and junior Caroline McDonough finished in 53rd overall. Also notable was freshman Waverly Neer’s impressive performance at the tournament, finishing in 72nd place.
And lastly, after a rough season, the football team remains in last place in the Ivy League. Despite an impressive early lead against Penn at the Homecoming game, penalties and poor strategic decisions were ultimately the Lions’ downfall; Penn scored a touchdown and broke the tie in the last 25 seconds of the game.
