Bowdoin Beat Lacrosse teams cruising

The Bowdoin men's and women's lacrosse teams aren't just winning, they're winning with flair and even dominance of late.

Men's lacrosse
The Bowdoin men's lacrosse team is now 6-1 on the season and ranked 13th nationally after pounding visiting Keene State 16-9 last Wednesday and doubling up host Connecticut College 12-6 Saturday. Against the Owls, the Polar Bears were led by five different players with two goals apiece. Adam Tracy had three goals and two assists in the win over the Camels. Bowdoin (which has won four straight) played Springfield Wednesday (too late for this edition) and hosts Middlebury Saturday at 1 p.m.

Women's lacrosse
The Bowdoin women's lacrosse team downed visiting Wheaton 14-3 last Wednesday, squeaked out an 11-10 home win over Connecticut College Saturday, then erupted for 23 goals in a 23-7 home romp over the University of Southern Maine Sunday to improve to 6-3 on the year. Against Wheaton, McKenna Teague had four goals. Ingrid Oelschlager added three. Against the Camels, Liz Clegg's goal with 2:54 to play was the difference. Lindsay McNamara led the way with five goals. Steph Collins-Finn stopped 11 shots. Against USM, the Polar Bears scored their most goals in 15 seasons. Oelschlager had four goals, as did Katy Dissinger. Bowdoin returned to action Wednesday (too late for this edition) when it hosted Colby. Saturday, the Polar Bears travel to Middlebury.

Baseball
The baseball season is still young, but rest assured Bowdoin has seen just about enough of Trinity. Last Friday, in Orono, the Polar Bears lost 5-3 to the Bantams in the teams' NESCAC opener. Saturday, also in Orono, Bowdoin was swept by Trinity, 6-1 and 16-8. Tuesday, the Polar Bears bounced back, winning 7-4 at the University of Southern Maine to improve to 11-11 (0-3 in the league). The Polar Bears host St. Joseph's Tuesday at 3:30 p.m.

Softball
The Bowdoin softball team had similar problems with Trinity, dropping a doubleheader, 9-1 and 4-3 Saturday in Connecticut. The Polar Bears are now 12-7 on the year (1-2 in league play). Bowdoin hosts Husson in a doubleheader Saturday with games at 12 and 2 p.m.

Tennis
Bowdoin's men's tennis team is now 6-2 on the season after Sunday's 8-1 win over visiting Connecticut College. The women beat host Bates 7-2 and won 7-2 over visiting Connecticut College last week to improve to 5-4 (2-0 in NESCAC play). Both teams go to Amherst Sunday.
