Women’s lacrosse claimed a crucial win against Rutgers this Saturday.

Hey everyone! As we near the end of the semester, competition is ramping up across the board here at Homewood Campus. We had a lot of incredible games this weekend, as our spring season athletes continue to accumulate wins. Let’s take a look at some results!

Women’s track and field

Our women’s track and field team had a great weekend at the Dalton Ebanks Invitational. Friday’s events kicked off with freshman Abigail Lovelace earning the first top 10 finish of the competition in the high jump event. Other long-distance events on Friday turned out well for the Blue Jays as graduate students Sara Stephenson and Callie Jones claimed second and 10th. 

The Blue Jays’ 4x100 relay team also exceeded expectations as Lauren Phillips, Anna Zaeske, Chloe Zhang and Victoria Kadiri brought home second place in the event. Congratulations to our athletes!

Men’s track and field

Men’s track and field also traveled to Fairfax, Va. to participate in the Dalton Ebanks Invitational. On the second day, sophomore Ryan Braga set a personal best score in the discus and finished 14th in the event, while junior Peter Lim finished third in the pole vault open round. 

Both our men’s and women’s track teams are gearing up to compete in the Stevenson Invitational and the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic. 

Women’s lacrosse (WLAX): W (13-12)

Women’s lacrosse powered through overtime to defeat Rutgers University this weekend in a closely contested game; a strong final quarter in which the Blue Jays scored six to the Scarlet Knights’ three allowed our athletes to grab a crucial victory, improving to 10-3 in the overall season and 2-1 in the Big Ten Conference. Two goals in the last couple minutes of the final quarter by graduate student Maeve Barker and senior Marielle McAteer forced the game into overtime, where it was won with a shot over the goalie’s head by graduate student Bailey Cheetham.

This week will be busy for WLAX as they face rival University of Maryland on Wednesday, April 10, followed by the University of Michigan on April 14. Both games will be played at home on Homewood Field.

Men’s lacrosse (MLAX): W (9-8)

Our homecoming game was a nail-biter this Saturday, as Hopkins hosted the Pennsylvania State University’s Nittany Lions. A tie sent the team to the end of regulation and into overtime, as a late goal by the opposition brought the score to 8-8. However, less than two minutes into overtime, a chance allowed sophomore Matt Collison to put one past the Nittany Lions’ goalkeeper after an impressive assist from senior Dylan Bauer. 

The Blue Jays are now 3-0 in the Big Ten Conference, a first in history — it was also an important victory for MLAX ahead of this Sunday’s clash against the Ohio State University. Our congratulations to graduate students Chayse Ierlan, who racked up 13 saves in goal, and Garrett Degnon, who is one goal away from 150 career goals with the Blue Jays!

Women’s tennis (WTEN): W (8-1)

Our athletes on the women’s tennis team also brought celebration to Homewood Campus as they defeated Swarthmore College 8-1 this Saturday, moving to a 3-0 record in this year’s Centennial Conference. The team won two out of three of their doubles matches, losing the third one on a tie-break, before sweeping all of the singles matches, taking the final score up to 8-1. 

This victory brought our team’s Centennial season winning streak to 158 wins! Keep an eye out for our Blue Jays WTEN as they travel to Dickinson College for another Centennial game this week. 

Baseball: W (10-1), (5-4)

The Hopkins baseball team got their revenge on the Ursinus College Grizzly Bears this weekend, first by beating the Pennsylvania-based team 10-1 at the Babb Field at Stromberg Stadium. The Grizzly Bears were the only team that beat the Blue Jays in last year’s Centennial Conference, but this time, our athletes powered through to sweep the game. Shoutout to junior Dillon Souvignier, senior Caleb Cyr and junior Shawn Steuerer for their efforts!

The Blue Jays played a second game against the Grizzly Bears on Sunday for the regular season. An initial lead by the Grizzly Bears was dismantled as the Blue Jays roared back to a 5-4 comeback win.
