“Kara has been working on her shooting in the last couple of weeks, and it definitely showed going into Wesleyan. Kara does a nice job of timing her cuts. We try to create a synergistic group on the eld, and Kara [and] our other players are working to play to each other’s strengths.”

–Head coach Alice Lee

Wollmers scored four of the nine goals for the Ephs in their season opener against Wesleyan, a great effort in an eventual 10-9 overtime loss.

“Liam ran an incredibly smart and patient race. He’s had his eyes on that race for a while now. It’s eluded him until now. I give him incredible credit for the consistency and perseverance needed to push through to this level. ”

At Tufts last weekend, Simpson took the gold in the 3000m, running a 8:19.44. His bank-adjusted time of 8:13.70 is the second-fastest in the nation this season.
