The Cardinals have recently beat Keuka College, Houghton College, and Oswego State in the last week.

The Cardinals have been enjoying solid performances from Emily Markarian, Sarah Bisesi, and Alexandrea Malley to name a few. Ashley Maynard has been the anchor all season with eight shutouts.

Against Keuka College, in a Wednesday night game which was again led by Markarian, Bergamo, and Biesi has officially made the Cardinals the winningest team in program history.

Maynard has continuously seen accolades throughout the season, and they have rolled in incessantly as the Cardinals continue to shut teams out.

The women’s soccer team fell to rival Nazareth College and Ithaca College 2-0 in the final two Empire 8 games of the season.

The Cardinals end the season at 3-9-3 overall and 2-4-2 in the conference.

Against Nazareth, Fisher enjoyed a strong effort from Taryn Guina and Carly Finn, but it was not enough to deny Nazareth a shutout. Goalkeeper Gabriella Cotugno finished an impressive evening personally with 10 saves.

The Cardinals will lose six seniors including Gabriella Cotugno, Nicolette Nigro, Alexandra Guhin, Carly Finn, Taryn Guinta and Brooke Whitman.

The volleyball team achieved the fourth and final spot in the Empire 8 conference tournament upon the Cardinal’s 3-1 victory at Alfred University on Saturday evening. Fisher now advances to a 5-3 record in the Empire 8 and will head to Hoboken to take on top seeded Steven’s Institute of Technology on November 5th.

The four team, single-elimination tournament will determine who will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championship.
