WATERHOUSE, GRAY NAMED BATES ATHLETES OF THE WEEK
LEWISTON, Maine Senior women's soccer player Amanda Waterhouse of Cumberland, Maine, and junior cross-country runner Malcolm Gray of Bronxville, N.Y., have been named Bates College Athletes of the Week for September 10.
Waterhouse recorded a goal and an assist in the Bates' 3-0 win over Salem State College on Sept. 9. After scoring four of Bates' five goals in last year's ECAC tournament in which the Bobcats were finalists, Waterhouse wasted no time scoring her first goal of the 2001 campaign. She opened the scoring for the Bobcats (1-0) just 2:04 into the contest, taking a pass from classmate Kate Dockery and burying the ball behind the Salem goalkeeper. After a Dockery goal made it 2-0, Waterhouse helped cap the scoring for Bates when she found an open Krissie Whiting who nailed home the third goal midway through the first half. The team's next game is at University of New England on September 13, before commencing the New England Small Colleges Athletic Conference (NESCAC) portion of their play on Saturday, September 15 at Amherst College.
