Following an impressive 14-1 season, the men’s lacrosse team swept the NESCAC yearly awards for the first time in program and league history. Head Coach Bill Mason won Coach of the Year in his first season with the program, with attacker Donal Mullane ’21 winning Player of the Year and first-year phenom Will Byrne ’24 winning Rookie of the Year to round out the sweep. Byrne was also recognized with All-NESCAC Second Team honors and teammate Mullane was awarded with All-NESCAC First Team. In addition to the awards, Mullane also finished the regular season on top of the NESCAC charts for both goals and assists.


Following the NESCAC Championship meet this past weekend at Hamilton, eleven track and field athletes were awarded with All-NESCAC honors. The women’s team led the way with six honorees including Emma Hargreaves ’23 for shot put and hammer throw, Jada Scotland ’23 for discus and hammer throw, Charlotte Hodge ’25 for pole vault, Corinne Ahern ’24 for javelin, Lydia Pitts ’22 for triple jump and 100m hurdles and Kianne Benjamin ’24 for the 100m and 200m dash. The men’s efforts this season were rewarded with five additional All-NESCAC selections from Ryan Durkin ’22 for pole vault, Carl Williams ’23 for javelin, Cheng Xing ’23 for long jump, Ajay Olson ’23 for 100m and Max Russo ’24 for 400m hurdles.


Last weekend, the men’s golf team finished sixth-place in the NESCAC Championship hosted at Hamilton College. The team shot 319-320-639 and beat Williams College by three strokes. Ned Dean ’25 led the way for the Polar Bears, placing seventh place overall and earning an All-NESCAC recognition. Dean shot an impressive 75-77-152. Oscar Wen ’25 and Liam Jachetta ’24 also contributed, placing 22nd and 29th, respectively.
