Gordon Women's Soccer and Cross-Country Honored by CCC


As announced by Commissioner Gregg Kaye and the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC), women's soccer goalkeeper Kari Christensen (So./Standish, Maine) and cross-country runner Allison Lynch (Sr./Holliston, Massachusetts) have garnered CCC Athlete of the Week honors.

The CCC Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, Christensen played a crucial role in the net for the Fighting Scots last week, helping lift her team to a pair of shutout wins. After turning away seven shots in a 1-0 victory over non-conference opponent Plymouth State, she went on to record five saves in a 1-0 shutout against CCC rival Eastern Nazarene College, closing out the week with an impressive 0.00 goals against average.

Lynch, the CCC Female Runner of the Week and veteran on the Scots' cross-country squad, finished ninth in a field of 191 runners (first out of all participating CCC runners) at the Western New England Invitational this past weekend. Her 5k time of 20:19 helped the Fighting Scots place fifth out of 19 teams.

Christensen and the Fighting Scots round out their regular season CCC schedule this week, hosting Curry on Tuesday, October 18 at 3:30 pm and traveling to Roger Williams on Saturday, October 22 for a 3:00 pm start, while Lynch and the cross-country team will spend the next week and a half preparing for the CCC Championship hosted by Roger Williams on October 29.
