Five-Star Matchups

Muhlenberg at Haverford (Baseball)
The Mules (3-1 CC, 9-9) and the Fords (3-1, 11-7) begin a crucial two-game series between a pair of teams tied for second place in the Conference. Haverford is second in the CC in hitting (.344), while the Mules are third (.338). Ford OF Jeff Butera leads the Conference in homers (5) and RBI (28) while placing second with a .500 average. Muhlenberg SS Dan Fisher tops the Centennial in hits (32) and runs scored (33).

Swarthmore at Washington (Baseball)
Two of the most surprising teams in the Conference start a two-game set today on the Eastern Shore. The Garnet (3-1, 11-7) is off to its best start in recent memory and is riding the big bat of Spencer Ross, who has four homers and 23 RBI. The Shoremen (3-1, 8-5) counter with the second-best team ERA in the Centennial (4.74), led by Chris Smith who is 2-1 with an 0.93 ERA.

Haverford at Ursinus (Women's Lacrosse)
A pair of Conference unbeatens meet in Collegeville in a match that will go a long way in determining playoff position come the end of next month. The Bears (1-0, 5-2) are 15-1 all-time against the Fords (1-0, 8-0), but Haverford's lone win came last season on the Main Line by an 18-16 count. Elizabeth Cannon is the top UC scoring threat with 16-10-26 on the season, while Haverford's Josie Ferri is averaging 5.0 points per game (27-13-40).

Dickinson at Johns Hopkins (Men's Tennis)
The Red Devils (1-0, 6-4) and the Blue Jays (1-0, 7-2) meet in a match of Conference unbeatens, but observers' eyes will turn to the #1 singles match between Dickinson's Ross Anstaett and Hopkins' David Maldow. Maldow is ranked fourth in the Atlantic South region, while Anstaett has been regionally ranked throughout his singles career.
