Fall Sports Preview - Women’s Soccer

After going 3-10-3 in 1998, the women’s soccer team finished 1999 with a respectable 7-8-1 record, and hopes to continue the upward trend in the 2000 season.

All four graduates will be missed. The loss of Hilary Carter ’00, an all-conference defender, Theresa Burianek G, Annika Sutton ’00, and Kristina Kath ’00 will leave opportunities for younger players to step up.

Key returns for the team are all-conference Rebecca Clinton ’03, 1999 leading scorer Kelli Griffin ’03, and second leading scorer Sarah Mendelowitz ’03.

In addition, “Paola Nasser ’01, and co-captains Shalini Agarwal ’01 and Jennifer Wagner ’01 should all be major contributors,” said head coach Melissa Hart.

According to Hart, the team “hope[s] to avenge some of the close losses of last year to teams such as Smith and Springfield” and continue its rivalry with WPI.
