WILLIAMS COLLEGE

The Williams College women’s soccer team players will pack their bags next week to play in the NCAA Division III Final Four. It is the third time in the last four years that the Ephs have gone, and they are just two years removed from winning their first national championship. That championship was then. This is now. “This is a very different team. This is the best team I’ve ever played on,” Williams goalkeeper Olivia Barnhill said after Sunday’s game. “I think we don’t talk about that national championship that much, if ever, because we think of this as a new season. “No matter what we did in the past, it’s not affecting us because it’s a clean slate — we’re very different.” Williams coach Michelyne Pinard sent her players home for Thanksgiving with the knowledge that they’ll return rested and ready to prepare for a Final Four date with Hardin-Simmons of Abilene, Texas. –  Howard Herman, berkshireeagle.comRead More
