March Goes Out With a Roar

Haverford at Washington (Men's Lacrosse)
This arguably could be called the biggest game in Haverford's lacrosse history. Pressure? Perhaps. But the Black Squirrels (5-2, 2-0), ranked 16th nationally, can take a major step toward the top 10 with a win against the sixth-ranked Shoremen (7-2, 2-1). Washington has won 16 straight games in the series, which began in 1990. The last game in Chestertown was the closest, as the Shoremen defeated the Fords, 8-5, in 2005.

Gettysburg at Salisbury (Men's Lacrosse)
It has become one of the premier non-conference games of the DIII season when the fifth-ranked Bullets (6-1) take on the top-ranked Sea Gulls. Gettysburg is just 5-15 against Salisbury and has not downed the Gulls since 2002 (7-5).

Ursinus at McDaniel (Women's Lacrosse)
The Bears (5-2, 1-0) travel to Westminster to take on the Green Terror (6-1, 1-1, ranked 17th nationally) in a game that will have playoff implications over the next three weeks. Ursinus has had the better of the series, winning 11 of 12 games. McDaniel's lone win was a 10-4 triumph in Collegeville in 1994.

Washington at Dickinson (Men's Tennis)
The Red Devils (7-4, 2-1) play host to the Shoremen (3-5, 1-0) in a match that will show if the Red and White can crack the "Big Three" of Haverford, Hopkins and Washington.

Washington / Johns Hopkins at Franklin & Marshall (Women's Tennis)
The Diplomats (6-2, 3-0) get an opportunity to show what they are made of as they host the Shorewomen (4-4, 2-0) on Friday and the Blue Jays (6-2, 3-0) on Saturday. The No. 1 singles matches pit some of the region's top players in F&M's Katie Gaskins (#36), Hopkins' Brittany Matava (#11) and Washington's Allison Daciek (#31).

Swarthmore at Washington (Women's Tennis)
The Garnet (4-3, 2-1) and the Shorewomen (4-4, 2-0) meet on Sunday in Chestertown in a rematch of the 2006 Centennial championship match. Swarthmore won that match, 8-1, to capture its second straight Conference title.

Glad to see you guys give no coverage for baseball. The conference season is only half-way over. You have an article devoted to everytime a team in the conference picks up a basketball , but I guess baseball is just America's pastime, so no sense puttting stuff up about that. Thanks for the info on the big Tennis matchups.I'm sure everyone is sitting on the edge of their seat waiting to find out who won the big matchup between Swarthmore and Washington.
