Dean suffered a pair of setbacks on Tuesday, dropping a pair of 9-1 decisions to Gwynedd-Mercy in six innings and then falling in the nightcap to Hilbert College in five innings.

Game 1: Gwynedd-Mercy 9, Dean College 1
As was the case in both games on Monday, Gwynedd-Mercy cored in the first to take a comfortable lead as they collected 13 hits.

The big blow in the first inning was a two-run triple from Lauren Waller but the Bulldogs responded by getting a run back in the top of the second on an RBI double by Alexandra Langerhans ().

That proved to be all the offense Dean could muster as Melissa Hess handcuffed the Bulldogs in the circle, striking out eight and yielding just two hits in six innings of work.

Amanda Clark finished 3-for-3 with a homerun and two runs scored for Gwynedd-Mercy, while Langerhans and Ali Nelson (Candia, N.H.) had the only hits for Dean.

Game 2: Hilbert College 9, Dean College 1
Marissa McIntyre spun a one-hitter and Hilbert College took advantage of four Dean errors to take the second game of the day.

The Hawks pushed three runs across in the first – two of which came across on a Jenna Castricone single to center.

Dean's lone run came in the third inning when walks to Cassandra Decuir (), Alexis Brown (Taunton, Mass.) and Ali Nelson (Candia, N.H.), loaded the bases with one out. The Bulldogs, were only able to scratch one run across on a Karissa Menzinger (Centereach, N.Y.) groundout.

Meanwhile, Brown had Dean's lone hit – a one-out first inning single as McIntyre struck out six in five innings of work.

The Bulldogs are back in action in on Wednesday when they face off against Chatham University and King's College.
