Ava Palmo 19

Women’s crew

Austin, Texas

Ava is the heart of her boat and of the team, really.  She commits to bringing her best to every practice and is a ferocious racer.  But beyond that, she is the consummate teammate who cares deeply for the sport and the lessons that it imparts.

Jones scored the go-ahead goal in the 81st minute in a nailbiter against Tufts. The Ephs would hold on to the lead and win 1-0. Photo courtesy of SPORTS INFORMATION.

Sydney Jones 21

Women’s soccer

Boca Raton, Fla.

Sydney made a difficult finish look easy.  Her ability to score goals at important times combined with her consistent work rate off the ball to create opportunities for us on Saturday was a huge reason for the positive result versus Tufts.
