The men’s and women’s tennis teams both saw their last action of the regular season with the women falling 8-1 to Williams, and the men losing to Williams 7-2 and defeating the Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) 8-1.
The women concluded the regular season with a 13-5 record (6-2 NESCAC) and are ranked No. 7 in the nation.
In doubles play, the women fell 2-1 to the Ephs. The doubles pair of captain Kate Winingham ’14 and Samantha Stadler ’17 was the sole Bowdoin win with its 8-6 victory at No. 2.
Emma Lewis ’14 was the only Polar Bear to snatch a singles victory from Williams. Lewis took a straight-set (6-0, 6-4) win at No. 5. Joulia Likhanskaia ’17 and Kyra Silitch ’17, at No. 2 and No. 6 respectively, were both able to push their matches to the third set before falling to their opponents.
“I think that everyone on the team feels that we can compete with Williams. A lot of the matches were really close,” said Lewis. “There is a chance we may play them again this weekend and we are all excited for the challenge.”Men
On Saturday, the men lost to Williams 7-2 in yet another battle of nationally-ranked powerhouses, and the teams entered the contest ranked No. 12 and No. 5 respectively. The men’s team lost to Williams on Saturday before beating SIT on Sunday. The Polar Bears finished their regular season campaign with a record of 10-8 overall and 4-4 in the NESCAC.
The men were unable to achieve victory in doubles play against the Ephs. Sam King ’14 and Luke Trinka ’16 came close to a win at the No. 1 position, but fell in a hard-fought 9-7 loss.
Bowdoin went 4-2 in singles play. Sam King ’14 and Chris Lord ’14 were able to snatch wins at the No. 3 and No. 4 positions, respectively.
“Williams is the defending national champion—we knew it was very important to get a lead in doubles. Unfortunately, we lost the lead,” said King. “I’m proud of the way everyone fought. We are definitely excited to get another opportunity to play them, we are very capable of winning.”
The men closed out their regular season with a statement, shutting out Stevens in doubles play 3-0 and defeating the Ducks 5-1 in singles play. Noah Bragg ’15 was the only Bowdoin player to lose at singles, falling at No. 1 in the third set.
“As a team, we have been improving all season,” said Kyle Wolstencroft ’15. “No matter who we face as the season continues we are confident in our ability.”
Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams have qualified for the NESCAC playoffs and both teams will host Trinity College in the first round on May 2.
“I think Trinity is a really tough team and always comes out fired up,” said Lewis. “Right now we are only thinking about this match and are putting all our effort towards winning. We are trying not to take it one game at a time and not focus on the semifinals and NCAA’s just yet.”
“We know Trinity will be a difficult contest. We had a long five-hour match with them in California that ended 6-3 in our favor,” said King. “We have an idea of the types of players we will be facing. We have mostly been focusing on doubles play in practice and on specific situational work.”
Lacrosse teams wrap up their regular seasons
The women’s lacrosse team gave up several late-game goals to lose to Tufts 10-9 at home in its regular-season finale. Lindsay Picard ’16 tied things up for the Polar Bears with two minutes to play, but Tufts’ Eliza Halmo won it on a goal with six seconds on the clock.
Picard, Betsy Sachs ’14 and Taylor Wilson ’15 each had two goals for Bowdoin. Sachs added a game-high six draw controls.
With the loss, the Polar Bears finish 4-6 in the NESCAC and will enter the quarterfinals as the No. 7 seed. They will travel to Amherst tomorrow to play the Lady Jeffs at noon.
In their previous meeting this season, Amherst defeated Bowdoin 9-4 on March 8. Amherst is led by NESCAC leading scorer Katharine Eddy and goalie Christy Forrest, whose 56.3% save percentage leads the conference.Men

On Wednesday, the Jumbos took the lead for good with 6:40 remaining in the first quarter, and led by as many as nine goals before winning with a final score of 18-11. Eleven players scored goals for Tufts, while only five Polar Bears found the back of the net.
Franklin Reis ’14 led the way for the Polar Bears, securing seven groundballs to go along with five goals and an assist.

“Once [Endicott] started to win a couple of face-offs, they went on a run,” said Will Wise ’14. “They were a very strong team offensively.”
Captain Dan Hanley ’14 and Wise led the offense for the Polar Bears with two goals apiece. In the net for Bowdoin, Connor Laughlin ’15 conceded 16 goals on 25 shots and Peter Mumford ’17 conceded two goals in six attempts.
“Our offense played well during the match—we just couldn’t get them the ball enough,” said Head Coach Jason Archbell. “We have to be consistent on our defensive clearances and execution against top offensive teams.”
Due to their late-season slide, the Polar Bears will take to the road for their NESCAC quarterfinal game, playing at Amherst tomorrow at 2:30 p.m.
Women’s lax dominates outside of NESCAC
The women’s lacrosse team out-scored Wesleyan 9-6 in an important NESCAC game last Saturday and then capped off the weekend by defeating Wheaton by a resounding 17-2 score on Sunday at Ryan Field. Yesterday, the team crushed the University of Southern Maine 17-4 in Portland. The Polar Bears improved their record to 8-5 (4-5 in NESCAC play).
Yesterday, seniors Betsy Sachs and Jordan Smith led the blowout with four and three goals, respectively.
“USM is an important regional game and it has national tournament implications, because we have to do very well outside the league since we haven’t been doing as well in the league this season as we have in previous seasons,” Sachs said before the contest.
The women started off last weekend strong against Wesleyan, leading at the end of the first period by a score of 4-1. Smith accounted for all four goals in the opening round of play. Bowdoin pushed the lead further with a powerful run at the start of the second period. Two more goals by Smith, coupled with goals from Betsy Sachs ’14, Lindsay Picard ’16 and Megan O’Connor ’16 allowed the Polar Bears to take a 9-4 lead with just ten minutes left to play. The Cardinals were able to score twice more in the dwindling moments of the match, but it was too little, too late.
“We have been working on making smarter feeds into the middle for the past few weeks, and we definitely saw this pay off in the Wesleyan game,” said Smith. “We were able to attack the zone and find the openings, which gave us a lot of opportunities that we were able to capitalize on.”
On Sunday, the Polar Bears celebrated their Senior Day. The women conceded the first goal of the match to give Wheaton a 1-0 lead, which the Lyons would not hold onto for long. The Polar Bears scored 10 unanswered goals over the next 20 minutes. Going into the intermission, Bowdoin led the match 10-2, and then continued their offensive pressure in the second period.
In a dominant second half, the Polar Bears managed to sneak seven shots past the Lyon’s goalkeeper without allowing any themselves. Sachs and O’Connor led the scoring with four each, while Molly Popolizio ’14 led the team with three assists.
“This weekend was definitely important for us in terms of our confidence as well as our standing in the NESCAC,” said Popolizio. “We have been working hard to play well for a full 60 minutes in our last few games. This weekend, we didn’t let up our intensity throughout the games and continued to play well cohesively on the defensive, midfield and attacking ends.”
Smith and Sachs lead the Polar Bears on offense this season with 34 and 33 goals, respectively. Popolizio is currently leading the team with 19 assists. On the defensive side, Sachs and Popolizio lead the Polar Bears with 18 ground balls apiece.
The team returns to action when they host Tufts on Wednesday in the regular season finale.The Polar Bears have already qualified for the first round of the NESCAC tournament; their match against Tufts next week will determine their seeding.
“All of our NESCAC games against top opponents have been very close games this season,” explained Sachs. “We are confident going into the playoffs because we know we can play with those teams.”
“We are planning on traveling for our first game of NESCACs, and I think that having that mentality going into the weekend will make us even more focused,” added Popolizio.
Men’s lacrosse rises to top of NESCAC
The men’s lacrosse team continued its dominant play this past week with a commanding home victory against Trinity last Saturday and a nail-biting 11-10 triumph at Bates on Wednesday night. The wins extend the team’s overall record to 8-2 and improve its in-conference record to 5-1.
On Wednesday, it took a 3-0 fourth quarter for the Polar Bears to squeak past the Bobcats in Lewiston. Junior Tyler Williams’ unassisted goals with 10:36 and 2:07 left on the clock tied and won the game, respectively.
The contest was close, with six lead changes and neither team leading by more than two goals throughout the match. Williams led the team with three goals, and Dan Hanley ’14 netted two.
Last Saturday, the men jumped ahead to an early lead against the Bantams, scoring five goals within a 10-minute span to finish off the first quarter. The Polar Bears maintained their advantage in the second quarter, as both sides exchanged goals and were able to increase their lead to 8-2 going into the final period.
In the final quarter of play, Trinity showed slight resurgence in the contest, outscoring Bowdoin 3-1. However, it was too little too late for the Bantams. The Polar Bears closed out the remainder of the game to win 9-5.
“We came out very hot in the first quarter, which gave us the upper hand for the rest of the game,” said Ben Brewster ’14. “We have been concentrating on our blue-collar attitude all season. We gave a strong performance against Trinity and were able to stay focused and humble.”
Brewster led the defense with eight ground balls on the night. Connor Laughlin ’15 also had a tremendous night in front of the net, recording 13 saves for the Polar Bears.
“Connor did a great job in goal—we had some defensive breakdowns that he saved us on,” said Head Coach Jason Archbell. “In the future, we can’t put so much of the weight on his shoulders to make those saves.”
Conor O’Toole ’14 led the attack for the Polar Bears against Trinity, notching two goals and two assists. David Nemirov ’15 had two goals and an assist while Peter Reuter ’16 and Franklin Reis ’14 each scored two goals as well.
Reis currently leads the attack for the Polar Bears with 30 points, scoring 20 goals and dishing out 10 assists so far in the campaign. O’Toole (22 points), Reuter (22) and Wise (21) have also been top offensive contributors on the team.
“Most of our goals have come off assisted points. It’s a great indication of how well our offense is working together,” said O’Toole. “We stress a team aspect when we attack, focusing more on our movement and cohesion as a unit rather than the individual.”
On the defensive end, face-off man Rob Talcott ’15 and Brewster lead the team with 45 and 30 ground balls, respectfully.
“Ground balls have been an important emphasis for me,” said Archbell. “We focus on outworking and out-grinding opponents, that’s how we tend to win. Defensively, our work ethic and accountability is key.”
The men will play Connecticut College at 1 p.m. tomorrow.
Women’s squash finishes No. 19 in nation
The women’s squash team traveled to Princeton University to participate in the Walker Cup Division of the Team National Tournament this past weekend.

The team suffered a heartbreaking defeat, losing 5-4 for the second time this month at the hands of the Lord Jeffs. The women said they were happy to claim victories from their top three spots in the ladder, with captain Rachel Barnes ’14 at No. 1, Nelson at No. 2 and Martin at No. 3. Chloe Polikoff ’17 claimed the final win for the Polar Bears at No. 5.
“Luck did not go our way in the Amherst match. They were a tough side but we can take some solace from the fact that they ended up winning the division,” said Martin. “In my match, I beat the girl on Amherst that had beat me earlier in the season. That felt good.”
On the final day of matches the women faced a St. Lawrence side that had defeated them earlier in the season. The Polar Bears got off to a great start, collecting early wins from Nelson, Polikoff, Wlodarczyk and Simonton.
For the third straight day, the last match would decide the contest. Senior Christiana Whitcomb (No. 7)—in her final game ever as a Polar Bear—swept her opponent to claim the win for Bowdoin.
“We were very happy with Christiana sealing the win for us in her last collegiate match,” said Head Coach Tomas Fortson. “Collectively, during this competition we competed better than at any other point over the season,” he added.
The weekend’s action wrapped up the 2013-14 campaign for the Polar Bears, whose eyes are now set towards the future.
“I think we are going to return a lot of talent next year,” said Nelson. “We are sad to lose our two seniors, but we have a lot of juniors who will step up and good leadership throughout the team.”

But the second half brought on a dominant 10-minute span during which the women were able to score four goals to distance themselves from the Mules. Two goals from sophomore standout Rachel Kennedy, and a goal apiece from Katie Riley ’14 and Emily McClogan ’17 contributed to the victory.

Middlebury again poured on the offensive pressure, piling on two more goals to make the game 4-1. Schleicher again came through for Bowdoin, scoring her second unassisted goal of the day to reduce the Panthers’ lead to just two. The rest of the first half went much the same, with Middlebury’s scoring coming mostly in two-goal bursts, separated by scores from Lindsay Picard ’16, Jordan Smith ’14, and with under two minutes, captain and leading goal scorer, Carolyn Gorajek ’13.
