By the Numbers

Second place is bittersweet. Admirable, but painful in its just-missedness. Last spring, for only the second time, Hopkins' men's lacrosse and baseball teams both advanced to the championships in their tournaments, each beating out top-ranked teams to get there. In the end, the lacrosse team lost to Syracuse 13-10, and baseball dropped its last game to Trinity College 5-4, but a close look at the numbers reveals years of success even without those national titles.
