NEWS YOU NEED:

Baseball: The Cougars locked up their first postseason berth since 2010 with a three-game sweep of NEWMAC West rival Coast Guard over the weekend. During those three games, Kyle Bonicki became the program's all-time leader in hits, surpassing the 159 set by John Galvin between 1999-2002. In addition to Bonicki, Cal Slepkow continued to dominate on the mound as the Cougar nine continue to add on to their school record win total (26). Read More Baseball News

Lacrosse: The Scarlet and White extended their winning streak to a school-record tying six straight games following a 2-0 week. Clark knocked off league rival Babson for the first time in 21 all-time meetings dating back to 1994 as netminder Drew Riopelle-Tyrrell earned the league defensive player of the week award after an 11-save, five-ground ball, four-caused turnover performance against the Beavers. Brandon King shouldn't go unnoticed as he pumped in eight goals on the week and is now just six shy of just the fifth 40+ goal season in program history. Read More Lacrosse News

Men's Tennis: After a 1-1 week in which the Cougars stumbled against Springfield but rebounded for a win over Emerson, Clark's postseason berth possibility comes down to the final two matches of the regular season. The Cougars host Wheaton on Tuesday in a match of the two teams tied for the final postseason spot. A win over the Lyons would give Clark the inside track on the fifth seed. They also have a chance on Wednesday when they travel to Coast Guard for the final match of the regular season. Read More Men's Tennis News

Rowing: With the NEWMAC Championships on the horizon, the "Crewgars" look to be rounding into form at just the right time. Both the first varsity eight and the second varsity eight recorded season best performances in their races on Sunday. After two excellent weeks of practice, the Cougars seem primed to make some noise at the league championships on Saturday. Read More Rowing News

Softball: The Cougars went an impressive 3-3 last week, including a pair of dramatic victories over Worcester-area rival Becker College. Leah Bodin played the hero with a game-winning single in the opener and then Sarah Woods blasted a three-run homer to cap a seven run fifth on their way to a 9-8 win. Clark's other win came on Senior Day when they honored Lauren Mackey with a twinbill split with Emerson. Mackey herself homered in the opener and then Taylor Erickson and Kaitlyn DeBlois delivered RBI in the nightcap victory. Read More Softball News
