Beacon Update

Men’s Soccer: The UMass Boston men’s soccer team saw their season come to an end on Nov. 3, in the Little East Conference Tournament. They went to the semifinals, in which they played against two-seeded Keene State College. It was a close battle in which came down to a single goal in the eighty-fourth minute, sending the Beacons home on a 1–0 loss. UMass Boston ended up going 9–10–2 on the season, and will be prepared to do even better in 2019. 
Women’s Soccer: The UMass Boston women’s soccer team also ended their season on Nov. 3, however it was in the Little East Conference Championship. The Beacons defeated Eastern Connecticut State University 1–0 in the semifinals, which set them up to face Western Connecticut State University in the finals. UMass Boston lost 2–0, as they ended their season with a 14–7–1 record. It will be tough to top this year’s finish, but hopefully the Beacons will return to the LEC championship next season. 
Volleyball: The UMass Boston volleyball team lost in the postseason to Keene State College, 3–1. It was a disappointing loss, but all and all it was a great year for the Beacons. They finished 17–9, including a 7–1 conference record. They will be poised to return in 2019 to be even better and go further in the postseason. 
Men’s Cross Country: The UMass Boston men’s cross country team had their last meet on Nov. 10, at the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championship in Brunswick, Maine. They finished 34 out of a total of 58 teams, which was a very solid performance. Unfortunately, that is it for the 2018 campaign, but look for the Beacons to come back strong in 2019.
Women’s Cross Country: The UMass Boston women’s cross country team’s season ended on Oct. 27, at the Little East Conference Championship Meet in Providence. They finished eighth out of nine teams and will be prepared to improve in the 2019 season.
