“As a team co-captain, Shelby commands the utmost respect from her peers by the way she plays and conducts herself everyday on the course. She challenges her teammates to be great, and her passion for the team and golf is very open and clear.”

Bill Kangas, Head Coach

On top of leading the Ephs to a team victory at their home Williams Invitational, Shote won the outright individual title, shooting a two-round score of 148. Shote has consistently finished in high positions for the Ephs this fall, finishing near the top at all of her tournaments, highlighted by her first-place finish at home last weekend and her third-place finish at Mount Holyoke from Sept. 20 to 21. She looks to close her fall season on a high note at Wellesley.

“Zach won two games for us this past week in double overtime in fabulous performances. We ask a lot of our strikers and he has really matured this year and shown a positive attitude, while remaining very coachable. He’s taken full advantage of his opportunities.”

Mike Russo, Head Coach

Grady helped propel the Ephs to two double overtime victories last week, netting game-winning goals against Middlebury and Endicott. With the two scores, Grady leads the NESCAC in goals scored with seven. He has accumulated an astounding 58 percent of all the men’s goals this season. Grady was named NESCAC Player of the Week for his contributions, and hopes to continue his productivity for the remainder of the season.
