First off all congratulations to the seniors of both the men’s and women’s soccer teams on all their accomplishments as they were recognized during Senior Day. Unfortunately for the guys, the celebration was spoiled by No. 6 University of Rochester in the final 7 minutes of the game. Most of the men’s game was competitive but one mistake proved to be the downfall. Rochester was looking to win this game after losing to Chicago with six seconds left to play in overtime.

Women’s Soccer

The Lady Bears fought a hard battle at Francis Field. Senior Becca Heymann put the team on the board with a goal off a Rochester defender. The Yellowjackets scored just two minutes later before both defenses took charge for the remaining 69 minutes. Some of the players said punches had been throw and I noticed a few players taking the ball to the face.

Overtime proved to be just as dramatic. Sophomore Lee Ann Felder saved a ball from going out of bounds and advanced it to classmate Emma Brown on the left side. Brown dribbled it down the side and it looked like there was no shot. But Brown found Rosoff who wasn’t even looking at the goal when the ball came her way. Rosoff, who was marked, flicked the ball off her heel and up into the bar before it stopped inside the Rochester goal. The game winner was Rosoff’s tenth of the season and 41st career goal placing her one goal short of third overall.

The men’s final home game is on Friday at 7 p.m. against Berry College. The women’s last home game is on Sunday against Fontbonne University at 1 p.m. If the women win the remainder of their UAA games, they will win the conference championship outright. The men are currently in fourth place in UAA standings.

Heavy thoughts and musings

Lynn Imergoot Memorial

I went to the Lynn Imergoot memorial service at Graham Chapel on Sunday afternoon. For those who are unaware, Imergoot passed away on July 24 in a car crash. Imergoot was the former head women’s tennis coach and an assistant athletics director. Her last position was as the assistant director of intramural and club sports.

I was impressed with the turnout of staff, students, friends and family. Each of the people present was a testament to Imergoot’s influence. Her legacy reaches far beyond her family and deep into many of the successful varsity and intramural sports available at Wash. U.

Women’s Golf

Wash. U’s fledging golf program made a big statement, dispatching two top-20 teams at the Wartburg Invite. The Bears first place finish in a field of 22 was their strongest performance in their two year history. Freshman Hannah Buck continues to impress spectators with a third place finish. The full story will be in Wednesday’s issue but look to the golf team to go far this season.

Men’s Soccer

It must be frustrating to have so many ties for the men’s soccer team. I caught a bit of Sunday’s game against Rhodes College and the team overcame a 1-0 deficit to knot the score at 1-1. Wash. U. has had the opportunities yet struggle to finish off their opponent. It was another double overtime tie. The Bears need some wins in the upcoming games.

Women’s Soccer

The Bears displayed their dominance and resilience this weekend with a 3-1 win over No. 21 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps followed by a 10-0 rout of Grinnell College on Saturday evening. It’s a pretty big statement when the top scorer, Emma Brown, didn’t even account for half the team’s goals. Brown finished with a hat trick while Lee Ann Felder had two. Five other Wash. U. players chipped in a goal as well. Hopefully the team doesn’t get overconfident and end up playing sloppy in their Michigan road trip.

Women’s Volleyball

This weekend illustrated the depth and potential of the volleyball team. With Vicki Blood and Erin Kasson sitting out part of the weekend, freshman Marilee Fisher and sophomore Lauren Budde stepped up. The two seem to bei in rhythm. Kristen Thomas continues to consistently deliver some strong kills. Wash. U. looked a little sloppy in their 3-0 loss to Ohio Northern but battled back or set the tone early in their other matches. Whitewater looked to be in control in the final match before Fisher sparked a slumbering Wash. U. offense. With Whitewater beating Ohio Northern, the Bears split the title.

The upcoming Teri Clemens Invitational is one of the toughest tournaments in Division III. Should Wash. U. win the tourney, the Bears will make a strong statement heading into the future. The odds are against No. 8 Wash. U. with arch rival No. 2 Juniata, No. 6 University of La Verne and No. 7 University of St. Thomas in contenton.
