Ready for a Ring

November 20, 2015

Olivet College consists of many things: academics, community and for many students – sports. Countless hours are put into making the most of the four seasons of athletics. This year, this extra effort has put Olivet at the forefront of MIAA athletics, with broken records and personal achievements for teams, leaving many excited for what’s to come.


The sports that have had outstanding seasons for the Comets include:


Football: Comet football ended the season with a 9-1 record. They also clenched a share of the conference title earning them a ring. This is the first time that Olivet has won the conference since 2007. The last time Olivet had eight wins in a season was 2004.


Women’s Soccer: The women ended the season with an 11-6-3 overall record, which is the most wins since 2010. With eight MIAA wins, this tied for the most in school history (Olivet had eight in 2001). The Comet soccer team also qualified for the MIAA tournament for the first time since 2010. The team also had two players make the MIAA first-team, including senior goalkeeper Deanna Zolnoski and sophomore Isabelle Leon; senior Lauren Vanderhoff landed a spot on the MIAA second-team.
