Cazenovia The Wildcats of Cazenovia College have excelled during October, setting or tying four all-time school records this month alone. With both the men’s and women’s soccer teams on the verge of qualifying for the North Eastern Athletic Conference playoffs, the Wildcats are off to a fast and exciting 2013-14 season.
Freshman Shelby McIntyre (Ilion, NY) of the women’s cross country team was the first Wildcats student-athlete to set a new school record this year on Oct. 12, at the Hamilton College Invitational. She completed the 5k course with a time of 19:06, shattering the school record by nearly a minute. The previous record for women’s cross country was 20:01 and had stood for several years.
The remaining three school records were all set by the Wildcats women’s soccer team in a conference match versus the Gallaudet University Bison. Sophomore Emily Graham (Wellsville, NY) netted four first-half goals over a seven minute span tying the all-time college mark set back in the year 2000. Junior Leigh Shoemaker (Rome, NY) registered four assists, breaking the all-time mark which had previously been set at two assists in a single game.
As a team, the women set a new mark for most goals scored in a single game in school history with 13. Eight different Wildcats scored goals on the afternoon including four from Graham and two each from freshman Taylor Lynch (Saugerties, NY) and Jessica Russo (Oxford, NY).
