By virtue of last year's 7-1 record in the Centennial Conference, Washington bypassed perennial league powers Dickinson and Gettysburg en route to the school's first regular-season championship since 2004. And with just three starters gone, the Shoremen figure to be one of the teams considered a preseason favorite to finish first in the league again. That means that Dickinson, Gettysburg and other conference rivals like McDaniel, Haverford and Franklin & Marshall will place a target on Washington.

In Johns Hopkins' 33-14 rout of Moravian on Sept. 20, senior quarterback Braden Anderson posted career highs in passing yards (218) and completion percentage (73.5). It took Anderson only one week to surpass those totals, throwing for 359 yards and connecting on 76.3 percent of his passes in Saturday's 42-26 victory over Centennial Conference foe Muhlenberg. Add a career-best four touchdowns, and it's easy to see why Blue Jays coach Jim Margraff called Anderson's performance the best of his career.

Washington is 4-0 in the Centennial Conference for the first time in four years and 7-2 overall after registering a 13-8 victory over Muhlenberg Saturday. The Shoremen are a half-game ahead of No. 8 Dickinson and No. 20 Gettysburg - who are both 3-0 in the league - and enjoying their unfamiliar spot atop the standings. “I think it's pretty big because we're all about conference play in terms of qualifying for the conference tournament,” coach Jeff Shirk said last week. “And anything can happen once you qualify for the tournament and the only way you're guaranteed to get to the NCAA Tournament is with that automatic bid. I think with our focus and emphasis on conference play, being able to get a quick start is really big so that you're not always playing from behind.

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

One semifinal of the Centennial Conference tournament pits a pair of familiar faces as No. 1 seed Washington meets No. 4 seed McDaniel in Chestertown, Md., on Friday. That familiarity, unfortunately, hasn't bred much success for the visiting Green Terror, which has dropped the last 12 contests in the series. “They've had our number for a long time now,” McDaniel coach Matt Hatton said. “I think if you look closely at the rivalry - although it's tough to call it a rivalry when you've lost 12 games in a row - there are a lot of one- and two-goal losses that we've suffered, and this year was no exception to that.

In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

Johns Hopkins' football team is off to a 2-0 start for the fourth consecutive year, but this fall's beginning felt differently than in previous seasons. After an overpowering 42-3 victory over Randolph-Macon on Sept. 6, the Blue Jays merely outlasted Susquehanna, 27-20, in Saturday's Centennial Conference opener. Johns Hopkins needed an interception by senior safety Ryan Rice and a fumble caused by Rice that was recovered by junior cornerback Curtis Antrum to overcome four turnovers (two interceptions and two fumbles)

By the middle of November, the Johns Hopkins football team had completed a perfect 10-0 regular season, captured a fifth straight Centennial Conference title and earned a third consecutive trip to the Division III playoffs. But all those good vibes evaporated in a 29-24 first-round loss to Wesley at Homewood Field, a game in which the Blue Jays surrendered the decisive 33-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left. Junior running back Brandon Cherry said he needed just a couple days to put the loss behind him. But the Parkville native and Boys' Latin graduate acknowledged that he watched the game several times to see what he could have done differently.

Here is the third installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Thursday's visit was with Hood. Friday's visit is with McDaniel. REVIEW The good: The 2014 campaign was not as kind to the Green Terror (6-9 overall and 3-5 in the Centennial Conference) as coach Matt Hatton might have hoped, and a contributing factor was an offense that scored just 9.3 goals per game.

After escaping with a 9-8 overtime decision over Centennial Conference rival Ursinus on Wednesday night, No. 6 Washington College went through equal amounts of relief and confidence. “From a coaching standpoint, a huge sigh of relief,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Thursday afternoon. “I think from the players' standpoint, there was an excitement. We definitely dodged a bullet against a very good Ursinus team that played very well last night. But at the end of the day, it was a little more excitement than relief because we found ourselves in a dogfight right from the beginning and found a way to win at the end when it looked like we weren't going to. So I think it was a great experience that will help build the program and the team.” The Shoremen improved to 10-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, further solidifying their grip on first place in the league.
