Big Game Hunting
There are three important games on the Centennial slate on Tuesday with a pair taking place in the Charm City.
Gettysburg at Franklin & Marshall (Volleyball)
It is always one of the highlights of the volleyball season when the Bullets (11-8, 4-1) and the Diplomats (10-3, 3-1) get together. Gettysburg holds a 30-8 all-time lead in the series with wins in the last five meetings. How heated is this rivalry? The two teams have met seven times for the Centennial title, including three times in the CC tournament. Gettysburg is 6-1 in those matches. (Shannan Smith, pictured)

Swarthmore at Johns Hopkins (Field Hockey)
This early October match will have playoff implications later in the month. The Garnet (6-3, 2-1) looks to break into the upper echelon of the Conference with a victory. The Blue Jays (4-5, 1-1) have won five straight from Swarthmore at Homewood Field dating to 1996.
Swarthmore at Johns Hopkins (Volleyball)
The surprising Garnet (9-4, 3-1) takes its three-match CC win streak on the road to Baltimore to face the Blue Jays (15-5, 1-1). Hopkins has won 12 straight in the series since a 3-1 Swarthmore victory in 1993.
