Saturday kicked off a host of CAA Championship action as William and Mary swept both the men’s and women’s Cross Country Championships. Junior Elaina Balouris picked up MOP honors on the women’s side, while senior Alex McGrath took home individual honors on the men’s side. Take at look at video recaps below as both Jill Miller and Stephen Walsh comment on their teams’ victories following Saturday’s action.
Sunday marked the opening rounds of the CAA Women’s Soccer Championships as UNCW hosted Delaware and Northeastern welcomed Hofstra to Boston in quarterfinal action. Both matches exhausted regulation and overtime, before heading to penalty kicks. The Seahawks finished with a 4-3 edge in PK’s to advance to Friday’s semifinal in Williamsburg, Va., against second-seeded Drexel. Hofstra ended the PK session with a 3-1 advantage at Parsons Field earning a trip to Williamsburg and a date with top-seed William and Mary Friday evening.
