Five-Star Matchups

This may be the hottest day of the entire spring for Centennial athletes and teams, as temperatures in the region could reach 90! Stay hydrated and come out to watch these key games.

Swarthmore at Washington (Women's Tennis)
The Garnet (4-0 CC, 6-3) tries to stay unbeaten in Conference play when it travels to Chestertown to take on the Shorewomen (3-1, 7-2). Keep an eye on the #1 singles match as two of the Centennial's best square off - Swarthmore's Rachel Wallwork (10-4) and Washington's Jordan Finnegan (9-3) - while the #1 doubles match between Wallwork/Emily Rosenblum and Finnegan/Brittany Marshall could also set the tone for the match.

Haverford at Ursinus (Men's Lacrosse)
How good are the Bears? Ursinus (3-1, 8-1) begins a three-game stretch that will answer that question tonight against the Fords (1-3, 5-5). Next up for UC - #2 Gettysburg and #5 Dickinson. Haverford is 7-1 all-time against the Bears with five straight wins since a 10-9 Ursinus win in 2004. Ursinus GK T.J. Magnani leads the Centennial in goals-against average (5.97) and save percentage (61.1), but will be tested by the Fords' Max Hjelm (23) and Myles Monaghan (20) who have combined for 43 goals.
