Cancellations

The baseball team, anticipating their first game action in New-England, had their scheduled doubleheaders against Brandeis and Husson postponed, due to Storm Stella last week. The men’s lacrosse team also had a home contest against Endicott last Tuesday which was cancelled. There are no rescheduled dates at this point for any of those contests. The lacrosse schedule has moved steadily forward, but the storm proved untimely for the baseball team, who have not played a game since their trip to California over February break.

Lacrosse

The women’s lacrosse team split their games last week, thumping Wheaton 18-7, and competing on a snow-cleared Garcelon field Saturday when they fell to Trinity 9-5. Camille Belletete ‘18 tallied six goals over the course of both contests. The women’s team is 3-3 overall and 0-3 in the NESCAC. Meanwhile, the men’s team was victorious away against Trinity, moving to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in conference and continue to sit atop the NESCAC standings. Matt Chlastawa ‘20 led the attack with four goals. In the first USILA national DIII poll of the season that came out last week, Bates ranked eighth in the country.

Tennis

The women’s tennis team travelled to Fredericksburg, VA to compete in the Blue-Grey Invitational at University of Mary Washington last weekend. They competed against Whitman, Johns Hopkins, and Mary Washington, falling in all three matches by scores of 6-3, 7-2, and 8-1 respectively. Men’s tennis did not compete last weekend, but will travel to UMW in Fredericksburg on Friday to compete in the men’s blue-grey invitational.
