Backyard Brawls Highlight Tuesday Slate

Dickinson at Franklin & Marshall (Women's Lacrosse)
There are a number of story lines that go along with the #14 Red Devils' (4-1 CC, 8-3) matchup against the #3 Diplomats (5-0, 9-1) - a battle between two nationally-ranked teams; Dickinson head coach Kasey Ryan '99 going up against her alma mater; and F&M's 30-game winning streak against the Red and White. Suffice it to say, it could be a playoff preview between two of the nation's top teams. Keep an eye on the high-scoring tandems of Alysa Crellin (33 goals) and Amy Jennings (25) for the Red Devils and Jen Pritchard (33) and Ashley Bevington (25) for the Diplomats.

Johns Hopkins at Washington (Women's Tennis)
It's a showdown for first place in the Conference as the Blue Jays (6-0, 9-1) visit Chestertown to take on the Shorewomen (5-1, 10-2). Hopkins has a potent 1-2 at the top of the singles ladder in Brittany Matava (16-6) and Anita Bhadmidipati (14-2), while Washington counters with Allison Daciek (12-4) and Lydia Bull (12-5).

Dickinson at Gettysburg (Softball)
The Red Devils (3-1, 15-9) take to Route 34 for the short jaunt to take on the Bullets (2-2, 10-7) for a weekday doubleheader. Two of the CC's top pitchers take the mound in Dickinson's Allison Jordan (10-3, 1.74 ERA) and Gettysburg's Kristy Rubino (6-3, 2.23).
