Men’s Tennis

The Men’s tennis team traveled to Washington DC to compete against Georgetown. Although the team lost as a whole, it was impressive that Ben Rosen ‘18 was able to pick up two wins against division one competition. Rosen won at no.1 singles and doubles (alongside Chris Ellis ‘17). The team also took two close losses to fellow Division III opponents, Mary Washington and Johns Hopkins this past week.

Women’s Lacrosse

The Women’s lacrosse team picked up a hard fought overtime win on Saturday. The victory over Williams was capped by a go-ahead goal from Allison Dewey ‘18 with 2:48 remaining in overtime. This was the first NESCAC victory for the team, and they now stand at 5-3 overall.

Women’s Rowing

The no. 3 nationally ranked Women’s competed in the Murphy Cup this past weekend. In the petite final, Bates finished in 5th out of six teams. However, it should be noted that all but one of these teams are in division I.

Men’s Rowing

Men’s rowing also traveled to Philadelphia to compete in their first event of the season. The Varsity eight finished sixth out of 22 teams. The junior varsity eight finished in sixth as well. The men’s and women’s rowing teams will be back in action next week on the Charles River in Boston for races hosted by Boston College and Simmons.
