- Junior Olga Koszykowska and sophomore Amelia Kroschwitz both recorded assists on each of Trinity's goals against the Engineers on Sunday. The points come as the first of the year for the two. 

- Sophomore Taylor O'Connor had 18 saves in a 1-0 loss at Hamilton and recorded her first shutout of the season in Trinity's first win of the year, with seven stops in the 2-0 victory over WPI. O'Connor leads the NESCAC in total saves (30) and is fourth in save percentage (.909). 

- Trinity, which leads the NESCAC with 35 saves, is in the midst of a five-game homestand that stretches through the end of the month. The Bantams don't hit the road again until October 2 when they square off against in-state conference rival Wesleyan. The team finishes the regular season with four of its final five games at home.
