Another win for men's lacrosse
The spring sports season continues at Bowdoin, while three members of a winter team have one final hurrah.
The Bowdoin men's lacrosse team is now 4-1 on the season and ranked 13th nationally after Saturday's stirring 10-9 home win over Amherst.

The Bowdoin women's lacrosse team rolled to a 12-8 home win over Endicott last Wednesday, then lost 5-4 at Amherst Saturday. In the victory, the Polar Bears got three goals from Katy Dissinger. Against Amherst, Bowdoin couldn't hold a late 4-3 lead and fell to 3-3 on the season (0-3 in NESCAC play). Steph Collins-Finn made 10 saves. After hosting Wheaton Wednesday (too late for this edition), the Polar Bears are home against Central Connecticut Saturday (12 p.m.) and the University of Southern Maine Sunday (1 p.m.).
Bowdoin's men's tennis team is 4-2 after last Wednesday's 5-4 victory over Trinity in a match played at Pomona, Cal. The women lost 6-3 to Redlands Wednesday to fall to 3-4 on the season.
