WINONA, Minn. — It’s time to take one final look back at the highlights of the week that was — by the numbers.
1: Goalkeeper Nate Levy (Byron, Minn.) recorded his first shutout of the season, making one saves in the Cardinal men’s soccer team’s 1-0 win over Bethany Lutheran last Wednesday.
1: James Larson (Polson, Mont.) scored the Cardinal men’s soccer team’s lone goal in their 2-1 loss to Hamline last Saturday—it was his first of the season, and first since netting his first collegiate goal on Oct. 16, 2013 against St. Olaf.
2 x 3: With their 2-1 win over Hamline last Friday, the Cardinal women’s soccer team has now scored two goals in three of their four wins—the lone exception a 4-0 victory over UW-Superior on Sept. 5.
2: Chris Trussel (Wenatchee, Wash.) scored for the second straight game in netting the only goal in the Cardinal men’s soccer team’s 1-0 nonconference victory over Bethany Lutheran last Wednesday.
2: Maddy Wallraff (Oswego, Ill.) and Bridgett Leverich (Blaine, Minn.) scored back-to-back goals in the game’s final 10 minutes in lifting the Cardinal women’s soccer team to a 2-1 win over Hamline last Friday. It was Wallraff’s second goal of the season, while Leverich’s was the second of her collegiate career.
2: The Cardinal volleyball team played back-to-back matches against nationally ranked teams during the second day of the Tiffany Robinson Memorial Tournament last Saturday. Saint Mary’s dropped 3-0 decisions to No. 11 Carthage to the nation’s top-ranked team—Washington (Mo.) University.

10: The Saint Mary’s men’s and women’s golf teams both placed 10th at the MIAC Championships, which ended last Monday. The Cardinal men—behind Blake Westerberg’s three straight seven-over-par 79s—posted a 995 54-hole total, while the Saint Mary’s women—led by Kaitlin Kling’s (LeRoy, Minn.) 88-85-88—261—carded a 1090 three-day total.
