“Mark has been consistently creating chances and putting himself in good areas near the front of goal. As a result, he was able to capitalize on his opportunities this week and benefit from some excellent plays by his teammates. Our attacking unit is starting to gel at the right time of year and Mark will play a huge role in that.”

– Erin Sullivan ’96, Head Coach

What a week for Kirshe and our team! [Kirshe had] several great goal scoring chances set up by her teammates that she finished. We are heading into a really important time of year with two big regular season games left and then playoffs, so it’s great to see her finishing so much in recent weeks.

– Michelyn Pinard, Head Coach

Kirshe has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week after her performances in games against Skidmore and Wesleyan.
