Tax Forms, Big Games On Tap for Tuesday

Haverford at Ursinus (Softball)
The two teams with the best records in the Conference meet in Collegeville with first place at stake. The Bears (7-1, 20-7) are one up in the loss column on the Fords (8-2, 15-9) and Swarthmore (6-2, 17-9) in the chase for the top seed. Haverford will have to find a way to put runs on the board against UC's Lauren Davis, who is 16-4 on the season with 181 strikeouts and an 0.65 ERA.

Johns Hopkins at Haverford (Men's Tennis)
Somebody's undefeated Conference record will have a blemish on it after today's match between the Blue Jays (6-0, 10-5) and the Fords (6-0, 8-5). Keep an eye on the No. 1 doubles match for an early indicator - Hopkins' Casey Blythe and Joe Vasoontara (13-5) take on Haverford's Tom Kinrade and Evan Steigel (6-3).

Muhlenberg at Ursinus (Baseball)
Although the Mules (7-5 CC, 16-13) and the Bears (5-7, 13-10) are 3 1/2 and 5 1/2 games back in the CC race, respectively, this two-game set that begins today could determine a playoff spot. 'Berg holds a one-game lead over Gettysburg and a two-game advantage on UC and McDaniel for the fourth and final berth. Ursinus holds a 39-29-2 all-time lead and has won the last four games in Collegeville.

Dickinson at McDaniel (Women's Lacrosse)
The Red Devils (5-2, 9-4) and the Green Terror (4-3, 8-5) renew their long-standing rivalry with playoff position ... and hopes ... on the line. Third-place Dickinson is one game up in the loss column over Muhlenberg, McDaniel and Ursinus and needs a victory to sew up the No. 3 seed in next week's playoffs. The Terror locks up a spot with wins against the Red Devils and Muhlenberg on Saturday. McDaniel holds a 25-7-1 all-time lead in the series and has not lost to Dickinson in Westminster since 1991 (8-6). Two of the top goal scorers in the CC will be on display in the Terror's Brittany Baer (49) and the Devils' Alysa Crellin (38).
