Rochester, University of

Rochester, NY — Rochester concluded a trip to the snow-shortened Women’s National Team Championships with a ranking of 39th and a seventh place finish in the E Division. The Yellowjackets will be looking to improve this season, and all matches will be key to that quest. Last season, Rochester began the season 3-2, with victories over Colgate, Fordham, and NYU. Unfortunately, during the second semester, the team did not add to their first semester win total. According to captain Emma Moore, “The University of Rochester Women’s Club Team is looking to further improve our ranking, as well as enjoy as many competitive matches as possible.” The squad will be looking to replace three graduates from last season as they attempt to move up the rankings.
