Men's Crew
WORCESTER, Mass. -- Williams sent four 8s and a novice 4 to Lake Quinsigamond to close out their fall season at the Wormtown Chase. The course took crews through a complete 180 degrees turn around a series of islands before racing the length of the lake. Crews battled a moderate headwind for the majority of the race course.
To open the morning Williams' newest crop of novices got their first taste of racing. Battling conditions that would challenge even seasoned oarsmen, the novices demonstrated all they've learned in the two short months since they first picked up an oar. Williams finished third in a time of 25:43.
The Ephs experienced oarsmen all competed in the collegiate 8+ event. The 1V took gold with a commanding performance, stopping the clock in a time of 17:10. This time put Williams 15 seconds over second place Wesleyan.
Williams' 2V also turned in their best performance of the season with a time of 17:29, good for fourth overall and first among 2V crews. This time put them only 4 seconds off second place overall behind their 1V.
The Williams 3V and 4V, demonstrating the team's strong depth this fall, rounded out the race with equally strong showings. The 3V finished 9th overall and first among 3V crews with a time of 18:26. The 4V, the only 4V entered in the event, finished in 14th overall with a time of 19:31.

Williams Women Advance on PKs in NCAA Tournament

Williams Sports Information
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Down a goal in the final minutes of regulation on Sunday, women’s soccer needed a big goal and got one from Alison Lu.
“Alison Lu is at her best when the stakes are the highest,” head coach Michelyne Pinard said of the senior forward, who previously scored the gamewinner against Amherst on Sept. 28. “So happy for her to have a moment like that after being injured for about a year and a half.”
Lu ran onto a pass from forward Rain Condie and beat the goalkeeper at the far post to tie the game 1-1 with just more than three minutes remaining in the second half. After two scoreless periods in extra time, substitute goalkeeper Leyla Kamshad made a save in the penalty shootout to take No. 24 Williams (10–5–3/6–3–1 in the NESCAC) past No. 5 MIT (20–1–3/10–0–0 in the NEWMAC) in the NCAA tournament.
“Overall just so pleased with the team’s grit,” Pinard said. “That is a very good MIT team and we hung with them until the end.”
