YEATMAN, McARDLE NAMED ALL-NEW ENGLAND IN SOCCER

MEDFORD -- The New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) has selected two members of the Tufts University Jumbos to its 1999 All-Star teams. Junior midfielder Sara Yeatman (Santa Monica, CA/Harvard-Westlake) was named to the First team and junior goalkeeper Randee McArdle (East Nassau, NY/New Lebanon) was picked for the Second Team.

A third-year starter, Yeatman finished the season with three goals and three assists despite playing in only 11 games. Also named to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Second Team for the second year in a row, she had the game-winning goal versus Trinity on October 16. Majoring in International Relations and Environmental Studies, Yeatman is a Dean's List member and an inductee of Golden Key National Honor Society.

Tri-captain McArdle is a second-year starter for the Jumbos as goalkeeper. During the 1999 season she allowed only 11 goals in 1,190 minutes for a 0.83 goals against average (fourth-best in the NESCAC). She recorded six shutouts this fall to increase her career total to 15, just five shy of the Tufts record. She made a career-high 17 saves versus Williams on October 23. A history and psychology major, McArdle is also an All-Star catcher for the Tufts softball team.

The Jumbos finished the 1999 season with a record of 9-5-1 after losing to Clark in the first round of the ECAC New England Tournament, 2-1. The Jumbos scored a season total of 36 goals while holding their opponents to 12 goals.
