Five-Star Matchups

McDaniel Invitational (Men's Golf)
Six of the Conference's seven teams get together at the site of last year's Centennial championship (The Bridges GC) for the two-day tournament. Players to watch include Dickinson's Joey Goldstein, F&M's Brendan Mohler, McDaniel's Keith Mazurek (pictured) and Muhlenberg's Zachary Oyer.

Washington at Haverford (Men's Lacrosse)
This clash between two of the preseason Conference favorites on the Main Line has a different flavor to it. Instead of battling for one of the top spots in the Conference, the Shoremen (1-2 CC, 3-4) and the Fords (0-2, 4-4) will fight to avoid a third CC loss before the end of March. Haverford broke an 0-19 history against Washington with an 8-5 victory in Chestertown last spring.

Washington at Dickinson (Women's Lacrosse)
Two teams with Conference playoff aspirations meet as the Shorewomen (1-1, 4-2) travel to Carlisle to take on the Red Devils (1-0, 4-1). Dickinson holds a slim 13-12 all-time series lead following five straight victories. Washington's last triumph was a 17-9 road win in 2004. Both teams have received strong play in goal - Dickinson's Jessie Clark and Washington's Stephanie Seibert have 54.7 and 54.5 save percentages, respectively.

Gettysburg at Haverford (Softball)
Two teams that qualified for the Centennial championship tournament in 2009 meet on the Main Line. The Bullets (2-0, 9-6-1) opened the CC season last weekend with a sweep of defending champ Muhlenberg, while the Fords (0-0, 6-6) open their CC schedule on Saturday. Gettysburg's Megan Lott is one of the top hitters in the Conference with three HR and 13 RBI to go with a .442 average.
