Haverford College Gets Lift From L. Moreland's Lee

Posted: October 17, 1997

Sarah Lee has been a big contributor this season for the Haverford College field hockey team. A freshman from Lower Moreland, she helped the Fords snap an 18-game losing streak when they beat Sweet Briar College at the Seven Sisters Tournament hosted by Smith College on Sept. 27-28. A forward, Lee has one goal and two assists for the Fords (2-10).

``We rely on Sarah's speed - she's the fastest player on our team,'' said Haverford coach Anne Livezey, an Ursinus graduate who lives in Collegeville. ``She's such a surprise to people because they don't realize how fast she really is.''

* Helping Swarthmore win the championship at the Seven Sisters Tournament was Plymouth-Whitemarsh graduate Kristen English. A freshman midfielder, she has 12 assists for the Garnet (12-0), who are ranked No. 8 in the NCAA Division III poll. Swarthmore outscored opponents by 19-2 in that tournament and defeated Wellesley College, 4-1, in the title game.

* Abington graduate Rachel Li has been in goal for Wellesley (8-3) this season. A senior, she has seven shutouts and started the week leading the New England Women's Eight in goals-against average at 0.787.

* Kate Evans, a Wyndmoor resident who attended Germantown Friends, is a sophomore forward for Smith College (6-8). She had three goals and one assist in the first 10 games this season.

* George School graduate Emily Renschler played in the Seven Sisters Tournament for Bryn Mawr. A senior forward, she leads the Mawrters (2-10) in scoring with three goals and one assist.

SOCCER SHORTS Upper Dublin's Celina Boer was named Centennial Conference Player of the Week in women's soccer on Monday. A junior forward for Muhlenberg (5-6-2), she scored five of her team's goals in two recent wins. She had a league-record-tying four goals in a 4-0 win over Ursinus on Oct. 9. She ranks third in the conference in scoring with seven goals and one assist in league play.

La Salle graduate Mike Flanigan is in his third season as a starting guard for the Blue Hens. A senior, he caught a pass in Delaware's 38-14 win over Northeastern on Sept. 27. The ball was tipped at the line of scrimmage and grabbed by Flanigan for a 2-yard gain.
