Baseball

Record: 13-9 (1-3 in NCAC)

Midseason MVP: Charlie Patrick – .329 BA, 19 RBIs, 3 HRs

Game to watch: April 14, doubleheader against seventh-ranked College of Wooster

Outlook: The baseball team recorded their 12th win over spring break to surpass last year’s win total. They have shown noticeable improvement in pitching and hitting, led by many underclassmen on the field and in the pitching rotation. Sophomore Charlie Patrick leads the regular rotation players in batting average, runs batted in, extra base hits and home runs. Junior Nick Casey leads the pitchers with a 2.38 ERA, and senior Grant Radamacher is third in the conference with 39 strikeouts. The team was swept by nationally ranked Denison University, but will have another opportunity to take down one of the best teams in the country when they play College of Wooster on April 14.

Softball

Record: 13-9 (4-0 in NCAC)

Midseason MVP: Jade Meija Wick – .471 BA, 11 RBIs

Game to watch: April 20, doubleheader against College of Wooster

Outlook: The softball team is off to a 4-0 start in conference play after a very difficult nonconference slate against some of the best competition in the country. First-year Jade Meija Wick is leading the squad in hitting, with junior leader Jordyn Fera also supplying power in the batting order. The team has used a platoon for pitching for most of the year, but has recently found some consistency in first-year Cami Henry, who was just named NCAC Pitcher of the Week.

Men’s Lacrosse

Record: 4-6 (1-2 in NCAC)

Midseason MVP: Steen Jorgenson – 12 goals, 9 assists

Game to watch: April 13, Kenyon College

Outlook: The men’s lacrosse team looks to make a push toward the top half of the NCAC and in order to make the conference tournament after a 1-2 start in conference play, which includes losses to top-ranked Denison University and College of Wooster, the Tigers must defeat Kenyon College to keep them in the hunt. They are led by senior Steen Jorgenson who leads the team in assists and is third in goals. Ben Davis, sophomore, has been sidelined for the past five games, and is essential for the team offensively moving forward once he is able to take the field again.

Women’s Lacrosse

Record: 4-7 (1-2 in NCAC)

Midseason MVP: Grace Clarke – 23 goals, 12 assists

Game to watch: April 20, Kenyon College

Outlook: The women’s lacrosse team sits at four wins under first-year head coach Jillian Howley, which is already double last year’s win total. First-year Emma Kennedy has been a major addition, as she is currently leading the team with 28 goals; however, Grace Clarke is leading the team in total points as she has the most assists and the second-most goals scored. The team will have a chance to score an upset as they still have three games against the top three teams in the conference: Kenyon College, Denison University and College of Wooster.
