Garnet Women Soccer
The Centennial Conference playoff appearance is the Garnet's fifth in six seasons.

With a dramatic 2-1 victory over No. 24  Haverford earlier this week, the surging Garnet women's soccer team - winners of five consecutive matches - secured the No. 3 seed and a first-round bye for the Centennial Conference playoffs.

In addition, Ari Spiegel '13 is the Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 31. Spiegel, a psychology and biology major from Virginia Beach, Va., anchored a Garnet backline that surrendered just one goal in two wins for the Garnet over the week.

Swarthmore returns to action on Saturday when it faces No. 2 seed Gettysburg at Johns Hopkins in the Conference semifinal. Play is set to begin at 7 p.m.
