Three Washington College athletics teams are competing for conference championships this weekend, while three others are jockeying for conference tournament berths and/or seeding. Here's the rundown:
Women's Rowing & Men's Rowing @
Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference Championships
Gifford Pinchot State Park - Lewisberry, PA - 8:50 a.m.
What's at Stake: Both teams are looking to defend their respective conference championships; for the Shoremen it would be their third consecutive conference title. The ninth-ranked Shorewomen's varsity eight race will have added importance as a win over seventh-ranked Marietta would give the Shorewomen a better shot at an NCAA Division III Championship berth.
Baseball @ Muhlenberg
Lehigh County Sports Complex - Allentown, PA - 12:30 p.m.
What's at Stake: The Shoremen head into the last weekend of regular-season play tied for third in the Centennial Conference standings with Gettysburg and Dickinson and one game behind second-place Haverford. The top four teams in the regular-season standings advance to next weekend's double-elimination conference tournament.

Men's Lacrosse @ Ursinus
Patterson Field - Collegeville, PA - 1:00 p.m.
What's at Stake: The 19th-ranked Shoremen have already wrapped up their first Centennial Conference Tournament berth since 2009. A win over Ursinus, coupled with a Dickinson win over Gettysburg, would leave the Shoremen alone in first place in the conference standings at the end of the regular season. The top regular-season finisher will host the Centennial Conference semifinals and championship next Friday and Sunday, respectively.

Softball @ McDaniel
McDaniel Softball Field - Westminster, MD - 1:00 p.m.
What's at Stake: What isn't at stake? A sweep of the Green Terror would give the Shorewomen the top seed and hosting rights for next weekend's double-elimination, four-team Centennial Conference Tournament. A split would still guarantee the Shorewomen a spot in the tournament as the second or third seed. Two losses would mean the Shorewomen would need a little help from results of other conference games to make the tournament. If McDaniel wins either game, the Green Terror will be the top seed and host of the tournament.
Women's Lacrosse v. Franklin & Marshall
(Centennial Conference Semifinal at Gettysburg)
Clark Field - Gettysburg, PA - 3:30 p.m.
What's at Stake: The Shorewomen and the 10th-ranked Diplomats square off for a spot in Sunday's Centennial Conference Championship game. Fourth-ranked Gettysburg will face Swarthmore in the first semifinal at 1:00 p.m. Sunday's championship game will also be a 1:00 p.m. start.
