Men’s hockey defeats Bowdoin

Men’s ice hockey (11-4-1, 8-2-0 NESCAC) shook off a sluggish start on Saturday in Bowdoin’s Watson Arena and proceeded to score the first five goals of the game to collect a 5-1 win over the Bowdoin Polar Bears. The Ephs’ offense took a while to kick into gear, as the Ephs did not register a shot on goal until 13:13 of the first period, and that shot came from the blue line.

The Williams-Exeter Programme at Oxford offers students the chance to participate in a wide variety of British sports, from the conventional and ubiquitous like rugby to the utterly ridiculous and appallingly aristocratic like beagling, the hunting of hares on foot through meadows with a pack of beagles.

Club Hub: WUFO, WUFA take mixed regionals

Editor’s note: This is part of a new occasional sports column in the Record, called “Club Hub.” In this column, we will be publishing stories from those who compete in the College’s club sports, in all of their athletic and eclectic glory. 

“I’m actually pretty warm,” Louisa Belk ’20 told me as she wiped frost off her disc, five minutes before our first game at USA Ultimate’s second annual Northeast College Mixed Ultimate Regionals tournament last weekend. I raised my eyebrows, as it was 29 degrees and we were standing in the middle of a field in Granby, Massachusetts.

Duncan no-hitter leads softball to sweep

Rebecca Duncan ’20 tossed her first career no-hitter for the Ephs on Saturday as softball claimed the 2019 Little Three title with a 3-0 win over Wesleyan. The Ephs then took the nightcap of the doubleheader, 7-1, behind a two-hitter from co-captain Mackenzie Murphy ’19 and completed a three-game sweep of the Cardinals the next day with a five-hit shutout from Kirstin Mapes ’20.
