Women’s lacrosse triumphed over a competitive Stony Brook this past Sunday, March 10.

Competition seasons are well underway for several of our Blue Jay sports teams. Join us as we look at some of this weekend’s results!

Women’s track and field takes third at NCAA Championships 

Our athletes on the women’s track and field team outpaced the competition this weekend in Virginia Beach, Va., lifting the team to third place in the NCAA Division III Championships and establishing a new record in the program’s history. Senior Victoria Kadiri won the individual triple jump title for the second year in a row and finished an impressive third place overall in the Women’s Pentathlon. Additionally, juniors Sara Bartlett and Lauren Phillips both posted career best times and received First Team All-American honors this weekend. Keep an eye out for our athletes as their outdoor season is set to kick off soon!

Women’s lacrosse (WLAX): W (14-12)

The Hopkins women’s lacrosse team claimed their fourth consecutive win this past Saturday, as they faced off against Stony Brook University in the Crown Lacrosse Classic in North Carolina. Despite an initial lead by the New York-based team, graduate student Maeve Barker opened the scoring for the Blue Jays, followed by two goals from senior Campbell Case and one goal from sophomore Ava Angello to round out the first quarter with a 4-2 lead for Hopkins.

The team had a strong showing in the third quarter, scoring seven goals straight; Barker netted two more and senior Abbey Hurlbrink, graduate student Bailey Cheetham and junior Ashley Mackin all joined the scoresheet. This was matched by a seven-goal rally by Stony Brook — despite that, the Jays were able to hold them off with a 14-12 win, their seventh of the season

Congratulations to the team for this past weekend’s game and for their win (21-3) against Vanderbilt University last Wednesday. Go Jays!

Men’s lacrosse (MLAX): L (14-13)

Hopkins men’s lacrosse fell to Syracuse University this weekend, as a four-goal drive from the Oranges down at the Crown Lacrosse Classic brought the Jays to a 5-2 record for this season. Syracuse opened the scoring in the first quarter with less than two minutes on the clock — the Jays responded with a goal from freshman Jimmy Ayers

The game slowed down in the second quarter, as Hopkins dominated with two goals to Syracuse’s zero, but it picked back up in the third quarter, as Hopkins netted four and Syracuse scored eight. A strong drive in the fourth quarter led our athletes to just miss out on a win, as the final score read 14-13.

Look out as the Jays take on the United States Naval Academy at home on Friday, March 15!

Hopkins men’s tennis (MTEN): W (8-1), L (5-4)

Hopkins men’s tennis had a busy weekend with two meets. The team traveled to Lexington, Va. to meet host Washington and Lee College on Saturday, March 9. A strong showing by our athletes allowed the team to sweep the doubles matches by 8-2, 8-5 and 8-7. The Jays also won five out of six singles matches, improving the team’s record to 4-0 this season.

The next day, the team took on 10th-ranked Denison College, suffering their first loss of the season (4-5) as the Ohio-based Big Reds held off the Jays. Denison swept the doubles matches 3-0, while Hopkins recovered to win four out of six of the singles matches. Unfortunately, Denison closed out the score with two further wins in the singles. 

There’s a lot more to come! 

We’ve already talked about some of our teams’ upcoming games, but the spring Hopkins sports calendar is truly jam-packed. Baseball will kick off the week, as they are scheduled to participate in the RussMatt Baseball Invitational on March 14–23. Additionally, wrestling will be traveling to the NCAA championships in La Crosse, Wis., while women’s lacrosse will be in the neighboring state of Illinois for a contest against Northwestern University. 

Our athletes will be incredibly busy over spring break — women’s tennis will travel to Florida and Georgia for meets, while men’s tennis is flying to Claremont, Calif. to compete during the week. Furthermore, best of luck to both men’s and women’s swimming as they head down to Greensboro, N.C. for the NCAA Division III Championships!
