Surf, Turf and Murph Saturday for Camel Sports Teams
After spending the first two weeks on the road, Connecticut College gets its first taste of NESCAC fall fun this weekend. It´s a Surf, Turf, and Murph Saturday that Camels fans won´t want to miss out on.
If you enjoy pristine panoramic views of the Long Island Sound Surf and competitive cross country, then grab your suntan lotion and a blanket and head on down to Harkness State Park for the Connecticut College Invitational. At 11:00 a.m. senior Colleen McKenna and the Camels will put their best feet forward in the 6k race. Does the men´s cross country team have the Wright stuff? Find out at high noon when sophomore Doug Wright and the Camels hit cruise control for the 8k invitational.
Are you ready for some field hockey? At 12:00 p.m., "Turf´s Up" when the Camel field hockey team (2-2) hosts the Amherst College Lord Jeffs in a NESCAC showdown on the Artificial Turf at Silfen Field.

Abby Hine continues to cause problems for opposing defenses and has moved into ninth place on the team´s all-time scoring list.
Are you ready to get your kicks? Tempel Green is the quintessential venue for college soccer and we´ve got an action packed NESCAC double header in store for you, the dedicated fans of Camel Nation.
At noon, the Camel women´s soccer team (3-2) will host Amherst College. Junior Chelsea Johnson has netted three goals this season as one of the most improved players for head coach Winnie Edmed´s Camels.
