“Will had a solid first tournament. He shot an even-par round of 71 in qualifying, helping us earn the No. 1 seed. He also made a nice comeback on Sunday to beat his Middlebury player. Overall, Will is off to a very nice start.

– Head Coach Josh Hillman

 

Kannegieser tied Sam Goldenring ’20 for the best score on the first day of the Middlebury Fall Classic. Thanks to a 15-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, he defeated his opponent on the second day, as the Ephs beat the Panthers to earn top honors.

“Alex Bennett is the real deal. On the field, she is a force to be reckoned with … incredible stick skills coupled with her competitive drive. Off the field, she is so fun to be around. Love, love, love her!”

Head Coach Alix Barrale ’93

 

Bennett, a co-captain and forward, scored two early goals and assisted on the game-winner during the women’s 3-2 victory over Trinity. In total, she took a game-high 12 shots, including 10 on goal, to propel the Ephs to an upset victory.
