NEWTON, Mass. -- With the fall season in full swing, and the Mount Ida College women's soccer team off to one of their best starts in recent history, there's no better time than right now for the unveiling of the second edition of the "Herd Newsletter."
Created by sophomores Mikayla Lovering (Colchester, Vt.) and AnnaMarie Seiler (Biddeford, Maine), "The Herd" is designed to keep readers up to date on the goings on with Mount Ida women's soccer, as well as to focus on players or team accomplishments and to introduce the team to the Mount Ida community.
In this edition, Lovering and Seiler helped introduce the freshman class that are reinvigorating women's soccer and the senior class that are making history. Seiler is also profiled as she recently was named Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Goalkeeper of the Week.
Lovering, majoring in graphic design, was able to use her skills from the classroom to create the Herd newsletter, designing the layout for both this and the first edition last spring. Seiler, double majoring in Psychology and English, applied and combined her excitement for people and writing by interviewing and writing the newsletter articles. She says her biggest challenge was being modest in her article on being selected as "Player of the Week" for the GNAC.
The Mustangs are currently 5-3 overall, the highest win total for the program since 2007, and 2-3 in the GNAC. They have collected historic wins over Rivier and Suffolk already this season, and they are on the road tonight to play Norwich at 7:00 pm.
