Field Hockey: College splits weekend CAA road contests, now 5-7
William and Mary (5-7, 1-2) took one out of two conference games this weekend, defeating Towson 2-0 Friday while dropping Sunday’s match-up versus Delaware 2-0. Sophomore defender Jen Harr and sophomore midfielder Kelsey Nawalinski each tallied a goal for the Tribe Friday, while sophomore goalkeeper Camilla Hill recorded the first shutout of her career.

Volleyball: Moloney leads Tribe past Dukes and Patriots
The Tribe (13-6, 2-2) defeated both James Madison and George Mason 3-2 last weekend thanks in large part to the efforts of freshman setter Jordyn Moloney. Moloney recorded double-digit dig numbers in both matches while also setting career highs in assists with 54 Saturday versus George Mason. Moloney set many of those balls for junior hitter Erin Skipper, who scored 23 kills in both matches to earn co-CAA Offensive Player of the Week honors.
