Women’s soccer ends the week with no wins

Fisher’s women’s soccer team dropped their first game of the week with a score of 4-0 to non-conference opponent Ithaca, then ended their second contest in a 2-2 draw with Sage.

Elise Olivo and Makenzie Winslow both notched goals against the Gators, while Melissa McGowan made 10 saves that day. Next up for the Cardinals is a home game against The University of Rochester on Tuesday, October 3.

Volleyball sweeps this week’s slate

Women’s volleyball went 3-0 on the week, picking up a win over Houghton then sweeping the Fisher tournament against Keuka and Medaille. Fisher has been unstoppable as of late, winning their last five games.

The Cardinals were dominant on the week, only dropping two out of 11 sets. Women’s volleyball is currently one of three undefeated teams left in Empire 8 conference play.

Fisher will return to the court on Wednesday, October 4 at crosstown rival Nazareth.

Cross country teams compete in Saratoga Springs Invite

Fisher cross country raced in its third meet of the season in the Saratoga Springs Invite. The men’s team finished 10 overall, while the women’s team finished in 14th place.

James Felice and Juliette Miller were the individual leaders, with 37th and 46th place respective finishes. Action from both squad’s will return on Saturday, October 7 at the Highlander invite at Houghton College.

Women’s field hockey makes it eight straight

Fisher field hockey continues to shine, winning this week’s contests with a 2-1 score over St. Lawrence and a 6-0 shutout of Nazareth. The Cardinals are now 8-1, following a season opening loss to Skidmore College.

The St. Lawrence victory came by way of some young Cardinals, with sophomore Danila Casseri and Freshman Jess Snyder getting their first goals of the season. Emily Markarian carried Fisher in their win over the Golden Flyers, scoring three goals and adding an assist as well.

The Cardinals have a quick turnaround, as they will be playing Sunday, October 1 when they host New Paltz.
