Women’s Cross Country

Several members of the NYU women’s cross country team participated in the ECAC Championship on Saturday in Westfield, Massachusetts. Because NYU did not have a full seven members, they were not scored in the team category. Only three Violets participated in the 6K race. Junior Becky Turlip finished with the best time for the Violets at an impressive time of 24:01.9, which was good for 47th place out of 338 athletes.

Men’s Soccer

The men’s soccer team fell 1-0 to Brandeis University in the season finale on Saturday at Gaelic Park. The Violets finished the season with a record of 11-6 and said goodbye to seniors Mickey Ingerman and Justin Suter. Sophomore goalie Lucas Doucette kept the Violets in the game with seven saves, but it was not enough for a win.
