This week in sports: 4/14 – 4/20

April 21, 2017

Turning the tide.

The baseball team (11-12, 3-3 NESCAC) is currently on a five-game win streak after sweeping its weekend series against Trinity (13-12, 3-6 NESCAC) and beating Thomas (3-25) 11-4 on Monday. Brandon Lopez ’20 was named NESCAC Pitcher of the Week this week after tossing a full game against Trinity last Friday. In the matchup, Lopez struck out seven batters and allowed no earned runs. The Polar Bears will look to keep up this success this weekend in their three-game series against Tufts (19-4-1, 4-2 NESCAC).


The men’s tennis team (12-2, 4-1 NESCAC) is now ranked fourth in the nation after a tough 6-3 loss to No. 1 Middlebury (15-1, 5-0 NESCAC). The team recovered from the defeat with a 7-2 win over Colby (10-6, 2-4 NESCAC) on Thursday and hopes to continue that strong performance against fellow top-ten team Williams (10-4, 2-2 NESCAC) on Saturday before facing MIT (12-3) at home on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Sevens heaven.

The women’s rugby team beat Dartmouth 39-5 on Saturday to pick up its first win of the spring season. The game featured a dynamic Polar Bear attack as all seven tries were scored by different players. Next the team will host the fourth annual Polar Bear 7’s Tournament on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The tournament will bring in 16 teams and each team’s performance on the day will be used to determine selections for the American Collegiate Rugby Association (ACRA) and National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) championships.

Tropical track.

The women’s and men’s track and field teams swept the Bowdoin Invitational II last weekend with dominant first-place performances. This weekend the men’s team will travel to Bates for the Maine State Meet, while the women’s team will host the 29th annual Aloha Relays on Friday and Saturday. The event will bring teams from across New England for two days of competition, with events from a heptathlon over the course of both days to a hula hoop contest to close out the meet.
