A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:


CC champion McDaniel will begin NCAA Tournament play in a six-team regional at Salisbury. The Green Terror is the fifth seed in a field that also includes Muhlenberg’s final regular-season opponent, Cabrini. All six teams that the Mules faced at the Leadoff Classic in Georgia (Lake Forest, Bridgewater State, East Texas Baptist, Central, Maryville and Bethany) earned NCAA bids.


For the first time in the three-year history of the CC playoffs, the higher seed won every game. Ursinus defeated Dickinson, 11-7, then suffered a heartbreaking 5-4 loss to Franklin & Marshall on a two-run walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth. Johns Hopkins swept F&M, 18-15 and 17-9, to capture its fourth-straight CC title.

Women’s Lacrosse

Gettysburg won the CC championship for the third year in a row, knocking off Franklin & Marshall, 14-8, in the title game. The Bullets will play Washington & Lee in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Men’s Lacrosse

Washington, Gettysburg, Dickinson and McDaniel are seeds 1-4, respectively, for this weekend’s CC playoffs. In a showdown between the top two ranked teams in Division III, No. 1 Salisbury handed Washington its first loss, 21-7.

Tapkas Named to All-CC Second Team

For the second year in a row, sophomore Courtney Tapkas of the Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team has been named to the All-Centennial Courtney Tapkas Conference squad. She was a second-team selection, moving up from honorable mention last year.

Tapkas (left), the only Mule to receive All-CC honors, led Muhlenberg and ranked among the CC leaders with 43 goals, including 25 in CC games. She recorded seven hat tricks on the season and totaled 50 points while also tying for third on the Mules with 15 caused turnovers.

After only two seasons, Tapkas already is fifth on Muhlenberg’s all-time scoring list with 134 career points. She also is fifth with 116 goals.
