Men’s Varsity Soccer Advances to NCAA DIII Championship

In a wonderful twist of  fate, the Men’s Varsity Soccer team has received a bid to the NCAA DIII Championship. Although the team lost to Amherst College 1-0 this past weekend in the NESCAC Semifinals in Wiliamstown, their performance this year has been enough to rocket them into the national competition. Amherst (15-0-2) took the NESCAC Championship this year, beating Williams (13-1-3) in the final game 2-0. Both teams will be going to the NCAA DIII Championships as well as Tufts—making for a strong NESCAC representation.

The  first game will be against Haverford College (12-0-7), winner of the Centennial Conference, on Nov. 10th at Arcadia University in Glenside, PA.

The opportunity came as a real surprise to the team. Whether the team would snag the bid was completely up in the air, but in the end the judges deemed them worthy of a spot. Coach Geoff Wheeler told Wesleyan’s sports broadcasting service, WesPregame, that the team won the chance because of schedule strength. Although the Cardinals’ record is 9-4-3 (less impressive than, say, Williams’ record of 13-1-3), their ties and losses were against highly ranked teams, something the powers-that-be took into consideration when determining the NCAA’s Pool C.

Wesleying Sports Desk Presents: Amherst vs Wesleyan, a Football Liveblog

Disclaimer: our bloggers have never liveblogged a, err, umm, sporting event before.

Welcome to Homecoming/Family Weekend 2012! Wesleying will be liveblogging the Amherst vs. Wesleyan sports game. Our reporters inform us the sport is the game of football. According to the Hartford Courant, Wesleyan’s football team is undefeated 4-0 for the first time since 1998. This is a big deal! “”Amherst has been in big games before and you know those kids aren’t going to get rattled,” Coach Whalen told the Courant. “They have the experience factor, but we have a lot of kids who have continued to make plays.”

In collaboration with WesPregame, we’ll also be livestreaming the action after the jump. You can follow their webcast online here, or just click past the jump. (The livestream will load automatically.)

Highlights of Wesleyan Football vs. Hamilton

 If you missed Wesleyan Football’s home game against Hamilton College this past Saturday (it was pretty overcast and rainy), you can check out this highlight reel of the game. The Cardinals won 34-14, crushing Hamilton in an epic second half where they came back from the 7-6 deficit. New running back Kyle Gibson ’15 was named NESCAC Co-Offensive Player of the Week for his impressive 244 rushing yards on 35 carries. He also scored a touchdown in the 3rd quarter. You can read more about it here.

For those of you who would prefer to watch the highlights instead of reading about them, definitely check out the video; it was produced by WesPregame, a service that connects students, parents, and alumni with athletics on campus.
