The Bullets ruled the weekend as two women’s teams – lacrosse and golf – captured Centennial Conference championships.
The women’s lacrosse team, defending national champs in Division III, earned the Centennial Conference title with a 15-5 win over Washington College. The team won its seventh title overall, but its first since 2006.
“It feels fabulous,” said head coach Carol Cantele ’83. “It couldn’t happen to a greater group. They took advantage of the opportunity and I think they played a brilliant game. It was a goal that was a long time coming.”
Gettysburg will receive a short respite before moving on to the NCAA Division III Tournament after receiving the conference’s automatic bid. The tournament field and pairings will be revealed on Sunday, May 6, with first-round games taking place on Wednesday, May 9.

The women’s golf team continued its great success in recent years by edging McDaniel College by two strokes. Gettysburg won its second consecutive conference title and third in five years with a conference-record 691 over 36 holes.
Sophomore Kara McNulty copied the team’s finish by claiming individual honors by two strokes over McDaniel’s Morgan Koopman.
Gettysburg shattered its program record for scoring this season with a team average of 350.5 – 10 strokes better than the pace set last season. The team won tournament titles at five different events to tie its own Centennial record.
