Gettysburg at McDaniel (Volleyball)
It is the longest-running series in the Conference as the Bullets (5-2, 15-10) and the Green Terror (6-0, 13-6) meet for the 64th time in their rivalry. McDaniel holds a 40-23 advantage and won the last match at the Gill Center in 2005 in five games. Gettysburg has won 15 of the last 16 matches including a thrilling five-game decision at Bream Gym last fall.

Gettysburg at McDaniel (Field Hockey)
Two teams battling for fifth place usually doesn't draw a lot of attention ... unless fifth place gets you in the playoffs and sixth place sends you home for the season. The Bullets (4-2 CC, 8-5) make the trip down Route 97 to take on the Green Terror (3-3, 5-9) for the 38th time in a series that dates to 1948. Gettysburg holds a 26-6-5 advantage, but had a five-game winning streak snapped by McDaniel last season, 3-0.

Ursinus at Swarthmore (Women's Soccer)
Two of the top teams in the Conference square off at Clothier Field as the first-place Bears (6-0-1, 9-3-2) take on the 22nd ranked Garnet (5-1, 10-1). Ursinus, who can clinch a playoff spot with a victory, has won four straight in the series since a 3-1 Swarthmore win at home in 2002. The Bears lead the Conference in goals (43), while the Garnet tops Centennial teams in goals allowed (4).
