Garnet Sports Update April 10, 2017

Swarthmore Athletics honored longtime head coach Ernie Prudente prior to Saturday's doubleheader with Dickinson by naming the new baseball press box after him.

Highlights from last week's Garnet Sports Network broadcasts.

Since beating Gettysburg College in 1985 for the MAC Championship, Swarthmore Men's Lacrosse has been unable to repeat the feat ... until Saturday when the Garnet toppled No. 15 Gettysburg 10-8.

Freshman Austin Chang (left) scored six goals to propel the Garnet past the Bullets. Senior goalie Cole Fox recorded 13 saves in the win.

No. 40 Women's Tennis swept three Centennial Conference opponents last week: Bryn Mawr, McDaniel and Gettysburg.

At McDaniel, Anna Scheibmeir (left) won No. 2 singles 6-0, 6-0 and No. 1 doubles with Emma Kassan 8-1.

Men's Golf defended its home course, Springhaven Country Club, on Wednesday, beating Neumann and Philly U in a tri-match. Yousaf Razvi (right) led the Garnet with a season-best 76.

No. 37 Men's Tennis swept Gettysburg 9-0 on Saturday. The Garnet won all three doubles matches by a score of 8-2. Blake Oetting (right) and John Larkin have now won four straight matches.

Women's Track & Field competed at Princeton's Distance Night and the West Chester Invite last weekend. At Princeton, Indy Reid-Shaw finished first among Division III runners in the 5,000 meters with a time of 17:38.69.

Freshman Rachel Vresilovic (left) finished in fifth in the javelin with a throw of 34.35m. She was also seventh in the discus (33.74).

Women's Lacrosse shut out Bryn Mawr College 15-0 on Wednesday but fell to No. 5 Gettysburg on the road on Saturday. Sophomore Elizabeth Wainwright (left) scored four goals and had two assists against Bryn Mawr, upping her team-high season points total to 39.

Badminton won its home matches on Sunday against Haverford and Temple. Tina Zhu (right) won her doubles match against Temple in three sets.

Softball split with Ursinus College on Saturday, dropping game one, but taking game two 13-5. Kennedy Kings (right) had four of Swarthmore's 15 hits in that game, going 4-for-5 from the dish with three RBIs.

Sara Planthaber and Kalli Segel each clubbed a home run.

At the West Chester Invite, Swarthmore had top-five finishes in the 100-, 400-, 800-meters and the 4x100 and 4x400 relays. Additionally, in the field events, the Garnet placed in the top five in the javelin, shot put, long jump, pole vault and high jump. Daniel Belkin's high jump of 1.9m is tops in the Centennial Conference this year.

Zain Hannan (right) finished fifth in the 400 meters and sixth in the 200 meters.

Baseball went 2-2 last week, splitting Centennial Conference doubleheaders with Washington College and Dickinson College. In the wins, Swarthmore got solid pitching performances from freshmen Sawyer Lake (left) and Ryan Warm.

Lake struck out eight batters in seven scoreless innings in the 12-2 win over Washington. Warm allowed just one run in eight innings pitched while striking out four batters in a 6-4 win over Dickinson.
