NEWMAC Championship Week at Springfield College

NEWMAC Championship Week at Springfield College

Springfield, Mass. - October 29, 2018 - Springfield College is excited to have the opportunity to host multiple New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship Tournament games this upcoming week. 

Finishing the season with a conference record of 9-1, the Springfield College women's volleyball team earned its first NEWMAC Regular-Season title since the 2013 season, and will have a first-round bye, before hosting the NEWMAC Championship Semifinal versus the winner of No. 4 Wellesley and No. 5 WPI on Thursday, November 1 at 7 p.m. in Blake Arena. If Springfield College was to win the NEWMAC Championship Semifinal, it would host the NEWMAC Championship match, which would take place in Blake Arena on Saturday, November 3 at 1 p.m.

The Springfield College men's soccer team locked up the No. 2 seed in the NEWMAC Championship Tournament with a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Wheaton College this past weekend, as senior defender Ian Zacharewicz (Stamford, Conn.) found the back of the net with 1:06 remaining to force overtime, setting up a game-winning strike from Andrew Ma (Upper Saddle River, N.J.) with 2:06 to play in the first overtime period. The Pride will be hosting No. 3 WPI on Thursday, November 1 at either 4 p.m. or 7 p.m. on Brock-Affleck Field. Last season, Springfield College played the Engineers for a NEWMAC title, as WPI emerged victorious after defeating the Pride in a penalty-kick shootout. From there, if the Pride were to defeat WPI, it would take on the winner of No. 1 Babson and No. 4 Wheaton/No. 5 MIT on Saturday, November 3 at the highest remaining seed to vie for it's second conference championship in three years.

The Springfield College women's soccer team also earned the No. 2 seed in the NEWMAC Championship Tournament, as the maroon and white defeated both Wheaton and WPI this past week to finish the regular season with a record of 8-2 against league opponents. The Pride, which is the No. 2 seed for the first time since 2014, will host No. 7 Wheaton College on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. on Brock-Affleck Field. If the Pride were to win, it would continue to the NEWMAC Championship Semifinals, where it would host the winner of No. 3 Emerson and No. 6 Babson. That game would be played on Thursday, November 1 at either 4 p.m. or 7 p.m.

The Springfield College field hockey team had its highest conference finish since the 2008 season as the Pride made it through conference play with an overall record of 6-2, earning the No. 2 seed. The Pride have been granted a bye in the Quarterfinals, and will host the winner of No. 3 Smith and No. 6 Mount Holyoke at Stagg Field on Thursday, November 1 at 7 p.m. If the maroon and white is victorious on Thursday, it will take on the winner of No. 1 Babson and No. 4 WPI/No. 5 MIT on Saturday, November 3 at the highest remaining seed.
