WEEKLY NOTES:

- Sophomore Rhone O'Hara scored her third goal of the season in last week's game against Connecticut College. O'Hara leads the team with seven points and is tied for the team lead with classmate Tricia Pollock who also has netted three scores this season. Pollock also leads the team with a pair of game-winners (T6th in NESCAC). 

- Senior tri-captain Julia Pitino has not allowed a goal in her last 251 minutes of play and currently ranks eighth in the league in total saves (39). Trinity rookie Taylor O'Connor started against the Camels and made six saves in her fourth start of the fall. 

- First-year forward Samantha March leads the team and ranks fifth in the NESCAC in total shots (40). The rookie has three points to date via a goal and an assist, as does classmate Blake Crawley, good for a tie for fourth on the team. Fellow rookie Amelia Kroschwitz ranks third on the squad with four points on two goals.

- Trinity has locked up a spot in the NESCAC tournament for the 12th time and the fifth year in a row. Tuesday's game against Amherst will determine what seed the Bantams end up with as six teams are separated by just a single win.
