Scoring the game-winning goal with just :04 left in overtime, Quentin DellaFera ’15 finished off a fast-break set up by a caused turnover from Elliot Albert '14 in Wesleyan's defensive end and brought men's lacrosse back from a pair of one-goal deficits in the fourth quarter to win. Nate Ryan ’15 got the tying goal in regulation to up his point total on the day to four (two goals, two assists), matched by Lyle Mitchell ’16, who assisted on the winner. DellaFera and Matt Prezioso ’15 both ended the game with a hat trick.The winning goal came with Wesleyan down two men due to penalties.
Angela Slevin ’15 qualified for the NCAA Division III Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships in Indianapolis, Ind., March 20-23. She will compete in three freestyle events – 200, 500 and 1650. She is the first female Cardinal swimmer to qualify for Nationals since Amanda Shapiro ’08 did it her senior year and returned as an All-American in the 100-yard breaststroke.
Netting her third career hat trick, Maddy Coulter ’14 helped women's lacrosse recover from a three-goal deficit in the second half to tie Hamilton, but the Continentals broke the deadlock with 5:50 remaining and hung on for the victory. Goalie Nina Labovich ’16 stopped four of Hamilton's free-position shots on her way to an eight-save afternoon.
John Steele ’14 went 2-1 at the CSA National Individual Championships to reach the quarterfinals of the Molloy Division during the last men’s squash event of the season. He won his first two matches 3-0 before falling 3-2 in his final match.
Women's ice hockey got a late power-play goal from Ellery Sarosi ’17 to cut its deficit at Bowdoin in half, but the Polar Bears prevented any further Cardinal scoring to come away a winner in a NESCAC quarterfinal game. Laura Corcoran ’16 was a standout in the Wesleyan net, making 31 saves. In the latest NESCAC report, Corcoran is tied for first in the conference in save percentage (.936) and second in goals-against average (1.83). Wesleyan's eight wins this season is the highest by the team in 10 years.

Matt Pelton ’17, at 141, Ed Pierce ’17, at 157, and Taran Carr ’16, at 165; all posted 2-2 marks, with Carr getting one of five pins accumulated by the nine Cardinal grapplers.
