And having outscored its opponents 18–9, the team is optimistic despite less-than-ideal circumstances. “We are injured from head to toe,” said first-year Katie Lucey, a goalkeeper who is currently dealing with a concussion. But the Yeowomen, propelled by a combination of young talent and veteran leadership,...

This mantra has turned the program around 180 degrees in Palmer’s first three years with the Athletics department. In just three seasons with the Yeowomen, Palmer and his squad have tallied 21 wins — in the five seasons before, the team struggled to win just 18 games. This year’s squad, which is upperclassmen-heavy, will look to...

The Oberlin women’s soccer team traveled to Wooster, Ohio, in the wind and rain last Satur­day night to face The College of Wooster but failed to find the back of its opponent’s net, losing to the tune of 2–0.
