Women’s golf: Sweet garners second straight Golfer of the Week award
The CAA named sophomore Caroline Sweet the Golfer of the Week for the second straight week Thursday. At the Great Smokies Intercollegiate in Waynesville, N.C. last weekend, Sweet shot a first-round score of 69 (-3), tying the school record held by senior Morgan Stepanek and sophomore Kristen Hamel. Though the event’s final round Sunday was shortened due to inclement weather, the Bowie, Md. native was named a co-medalist.
Field Hockey: Spiders shut down Tribe, 3-1
Senior captain Wesley Drew’s score off a penalty corner was the Tribe’s lone goal in its 3-1 loss against Richmond (4-5) Wednesday at Busch Field. The College (3-5) had many opportunities to score, including sophomore Leah Zamesnik’s two shots past Spiders’ goalie Jackie Raithel, but both attempts were waived off, since Zamesnik was not fully inside the scoring boundary. In net, sophomore Camilla Hill made seven saves on 10 Richmond shots. For a full game story, check out http://www.flathatnews.com/content/71546.
