Women’s soccer tied  Vassar College 1-1 on Saturday, Oct. 20, during which senior defender Kristina Diaz, a native of Hackettstown, N.J., scored her first collegiate goal. Aside from this accomplishment, Diaz has been a stalwart presence in UR’s defense during her four years at UR. Her point against Vassar, which came at the 85th minute, tied the game, which finished in a draw. This was an impressive result for UR, considering their 3-10 record compared to Vassar’s 9-6.
