Ithaca College senior Rachael Greener found herself in a new role for the 1991 season.The 1988 North Carroll graduate found herself switched from forward to right link on the Ithaca field hockey team.The transition from a purely offensive position to an offensive and defensive spot -- similar to a midfielder in soccer or lacrosse --might cause one to cringe, particularly since Greener was the top scorer for the Bombers in 1990. But for Greener the switch has been more of a challenge."I'm involved a lot more in the transitional play.

SALISBURY -- An inexperienced Ithaca College lacrosse team used a deliberate offense to stay within two goals of Salisbury State at the half yesterday, and the Bombers probably started thinking upset.Salisbury State midfielder Art Morley, though, said he knew a spurt was coming."We've seen that style all year where teams try to take the air out of the ball," said Morley. "I wasn't concerned. Usually, when other teams do that to us, we come back and push it in their face."No. 1-ranked Salisbury's big push came in the third period, when the Sea Gulls scored six consecutive goals to open up a tight game and defeat No. 7 Ithaca, 16-10, before a crowd of 1,200 at Sea Gulls Stadium in a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III quarterfinal.
