The Bryn Mawr College field hockey team on Wednesday broke a 14-year, 139-game conference losing streak.
“It’s been a trying time,” joked Jacob Mullins, assistant athletic director at Bryn Mawr.
The Owls beat rival Swarthmore, 4-1, at home at Applebee Field, bringing their season record to 4-10, and 1-8 in the Centennial Conference.
The Owls’ last conference win was in 1999 against Western Maryland. That school changed its name to McDaniel College in 2002.
The Centennial Conference consists of 11 schools; “Bryn Mawr is the only single-sex institution in the conference,” Mullins said.
The Owls will host Notre Dame University of Maryland, a non-conference opponent, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30.
