Ann BasuSPRINTING AHEAD: Kate McAloon ’20 jumps for the ball against a Wesleyan opponent. After beating Wesleyan (10-6, NESCAC 6-4) in a close 11-10 game at home on Saturday, the women’s lacrosse team (12-4, NESCAC 6-4) advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 2015.
Tournament time. The women’s tennis team (13-4, 5-3 NESCAC) is seeded fifth heading into the first round of NESCAC playoffs this weekend where it will face No. 2 Wesleyan (11-3, 5-3 NESCAC). The Polar Bears hope to build off their recent success—an 8-1 win over Babson (10-8) and a 9-0 shutout over MIT (12-8) last weekend—as they go up against a strong Cardinal squad.
Smooth sailing. The sailing team competed in two regattas last weekend. Finishing seventh out of 18 teams, the windless Admiral’s Cup significantly limited racing. At the Women’s New England Championship, the Polar Bears battled it out with Harvard, ultimately winning a tiebreaker against the Crimson to secure the final qualifying spot for Women’s Nationals.

The women’s lacrosse team (9-3, 5-3 NESCAC) has been pushing towards securing a high seed for NESCAC championships.
Ann BasuSticking with it Mettler Growney ’17 dodges two Amherst defenders in the team’s season opener, a skillful 7-6 win over the Purple and White. That strong start was indicative of the team’s successful season thus far; it heads into Sunday’s Trinity matchup with a 6-1 record.
