13 | Men's Ice Hockey Scores Four Unanswered Goals to Upend No. 8/10 Norwich, 5-3

Trailing 3-1 late in the second period, the Babson men's ice hockey team scored three times in just over 13 minutes to take the lead and tacked on a late empty net tally to stay unbeaten with a 5-3 win over then-No. 8/10 Norwich on November 10 at the Babson Skating Center. First-year Cam Schmitt (Andover, Mass.) notched the first goal of his career at 13:53 of the second period to cut the Beavers' deficit to one, and fellow rookie Zach Richterman (Canton, Ohio) tied the game with his first career tally just 2:34 into the third period. Sophomore Nick Rosa (Birmingham, Mich.) put the Green and ahead for good less than five minutes later, while first-year Ryan Black (Pomfret, Conn.) chipped in with an empty netter in the closing seconds to help Babson top the Cadets for the first time since the 2016 NEHC Tournament semifinals.

12 | Men's Soccer Stuns No. 4 Brandeis in Home Opener, 2-0

Junior Alex Crompton (Killington, Vt.) and first-year Ross Shellow (Miami, Fla.) both scored second-half goals as the Babson men's soccer squad toppled then-fourth-ranked Brandeis, 2-0, on September 8 at Hartwell-Rogers Field. Crompton broke the scoreless deadlock with a header in the 57th minute and Shellow followed with his first career marker in the 68th minute to lift the Beavers to their first victory over the Judges, who were coming off their second consecutive trip to the Division III Final Four, since 2016.

11 | Softball Explodes for 12-Run First Inning to Complete Doubleheader Sweep of Smith 

Following a 10-run victory in the opening game of the day, the Babson softball team erupted for 12 runs in the bottom of the first inning on its way to finishing off a doubleheader sweep of visiting Smith with 12-2 and 19-3 wins on April 5 at Alumni Field. Twelve of the Beavers' first 13 batters reached base safely in a frame that included eight hits, four walks, a hit batsmen and an error. Senior Josephine Mares (Houston, Texas), who recorded her first career home run in the form of a grand slam, was one of eight different players to register an RBI in a frame that saw fellow senior Ashely Tango (Reading, Mass.) contribute two hits and four other players reach base safely in both their at-bats. The Green and White, which had scored six runs in the first inning of game one against the Pioneers, also produced a 10-run first-inning uprising against Wheaton just a week later.
