MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College field hockey team got a successful penalty stroke conversion from Annie Leonard in double overtime on Saturday to defeat visiting Amherst, 3-2.
The Panthers, ranked No. 2 in NCAA Division III, improved to 3-0 heading into a Saturday home game at noon vs. top-ranked Bowdoin. Amherst, which entered the game ranked at No. 18, dropped to 2-2.
Middlebury was first to strike in the fourth minute on a penalty corner. Lauren Schweppe redirected a Leonard shot from the top of the circle.
MIDDLEBURY — Mike Nienow thought the persistent pain in his left leg was simply the result of a bad pair of clogs, the footwear of choice for culinary school students at the Patricia Hannaford Career Center.
“It started with the back of my knee; I felt some weird pressure,” Nienow recalled.
But being a bullet-proof 17-year-old with a busy school schedule and social life, he didn’t think too much of it at first.
Then the pain became persistent enough that he switched to a new pair of shoes.
MIDDLEBURY — Course member George Ramsayer sank a hole-in-one to provide last week’s highlight at Ralph Myhre Golf Course in Middlebury.

Finishing second was the team of Russ Reilly, Frank Punderson and Dick Hodgson. The threesome of Joe Bartlett, Charlie Grigg and Paul Butt took third.
