SOFTBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel dropped three games on the final day of a 3-7 trip to The Spring Games on Friday, Mar. 18.

• After playing six games in two days to close out the trip to Florida, the Green Terror hasn't played a game in 12 days before its final tuneup before conference play opens this weekend. McDaniel hosts Messiah on Wednesday before hosting Muhlenberg on Saturday. The Green Terror was picked third in the preseason balloting of conference coaches, including one first-place nod. Washington was slotted first with two first-place votes while Gettysburg was picked second with four-first place votes.

• With an 0-for-1 against Carleton in the second game on Mar. 18, Megan Horsey had her 29-game on-base streak snapped. The last game in which Horsey did not reach base safely at least once was an 0-for-2 against then-No. 2 Christopher Newport on Mar. 1, 2020. The senior started a new streak in the Florida finale, however, with a fifth-inning walk.

• Hannah Costa has had a solid start to her collegiate pitching career. In 18 innings this season, she has a team-best 2.33 ERA and has struck out eight.

MEN'S LACROSSE

LAST TIME OUT: No. 9 Franklin & Marshall outscored McDaniel 7-1 in the third quarter for a 16-8 win in the conference opener on Saturday.

• Nick DeLoriers enters the week with the most assists of any player in the Centennial Conference. He has 19 assists to go with 17 goals this season. However, 10 of DeLorier's 19 helpers have come in three games. He has a pair of four-assist games to go with a career-best six at Alvernia. DeLorier's 36 points ranks third in the conference.

• The Green Terror defense currently ranks second in the conference, posting an 8.89 goals-against average through nine games. Only Gettysburg's 8.44 GAA ranks better. McDaniel has held four of its first nine opponents to five or fewer tallies.

TENNIS

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel's men took one of the doubles matches in the opener at Muhlenberg on Saturday.

• Quinn Dietsche and Parth Shah won their double matches in their Green Terror debut last Saturday. The duo combined to post an 8-7 win at second doubles, taking the tiebreaker, 7-2. In total, nine of the 14 individuals who took the court last week were making their collegiate debuts.

OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD

LAST TIME OUT: The McDaniel men won the Goucher Interconference Meet on Friday while the women placed third.

• Nick Razze and Tyren Proctor led the Green Terror to a strong start to the outdoor season on the track at Goucher on Friday. Razze, who earned CC Track Athlete of the Week honors, crossed first in the 400. His time of 50.11 seconds ranks ninth in program history. He was also third in the 200 (23.34) and was part of the winning 4x100-meter (43.46) and 4x400-meter (3:33.11) relays. Proctor won the 110 hurdles with a time of 15.53 seconds, which ranks third in program history. Josh Sproul led the way on the field side, finishing second in both the high jump (1.84 meters) and long jump (6.82). His long jump mark is fifth in program history.

• Nick Raumann (5000), Chett Brunner (shot put), Tyler Richardson (1500), and Katie Morgan (400) all added individul victories. Rachel Dixon, Angel Bidgell, Yeseniah Ortiz, and Gabby Collins won the women's 4x100 relay. Diondre Carter, Oral-Anthony Coleman, Nick Razze, and Tyren Proctor made it a sweep of the sprint relay while Anders Madsen, Tyler Richardson, Jeremiah Maxwell, and Razze won the men's 4x400.

WOMEN'S GOLF

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel finished third at its own Spring Invitational in the spring opener on Saturday and Sunday.

• Olivia Vanreusel and Zoey Smalls each played their first competitive rounds for the Green Terror at the The Bridges on Saturday and Sunday, debuting in less-than-ideal conditions. Vanreusel carded a round of 132 on Saturday before improving by eight strokes on Sunday while Smalls improved from a 142 to a 139 over the two days.

BASEBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel scored four runs in the eighth inning to secure a 9-4 win over New Jersey City on Sunday.

• The Green Terror offense is on a record pace as it makes the turn into April and conference play. With all 22 non-conference games in the books, the team has a .364 team batting average and .472 on-base percentage, which are both on pace to be the best marks in the history of the program. The 252 runs scored already ranks third, 100 shy of the 2016 record. The 24 triples is the most since at least 1965. McDaniel has already drawn 134 walks, which is third – just 42 behind the 176 in 2016. Likewise, the Green Terror needs just two more sacrifice flies to match the record of 24 (2016).

• Individually, Shane Daly and Tyler have six triples, which has already tied the single-season individual record. Daly has also already scored 41 runs, which is the fourth most in a single season. Austin Goudeaux's 25 walks is second in a single season, just eight shy of fellow catcher Cameron Bahr's 33 in 2016.

• Nationally, the Green Terror ranks in the top five in batting average (2nd), sacrifice flies (2nd), triples (2nd), scoring (4th), walks (4th), hits (5th).

WOMEN'S LACROSSE

LAST TIME OUT: No. 6 Franklin & Marshall scored 10 straight goals in the first half to key a 20-10 win over McDaniel in the conference opener on Saturday.

• After starting the season 5-0, the Green Terror has run into three straight opponents that are currently receiving votes in the IWLCA poll. The stretch started with an 11-10 overtime loss to then-No. 21 Amherst in Colorado. Colorado College, which is receiving votes in this week's poll, handed McDaniel a second straight loss out west before No. 6 Franklin & Marshall opened the conference slate with a 20-10 win.

• Acadia Noll had a hand in six of the Green Terror's 10 goals at Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. In addition to scoring McDaniel's first goal of the afternoon, she dished out a career-high five assists. Noll ranks second on the team with eight assists for the year and is fourth in total points with 21. She is also the team leader in ground balls (22), second in caused turnovers (15), and second in draw controls (34).

MEN'S GOLF

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel finished second at its own Spring Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.

• The Green Terror kept its run of top-two tournament finishes going at The Bridges. McDaniel has now finished first or second in six of its seven tournaments. However, this was the first time that the Green Terror held the first-round lead and did not hold on to claim the title. McDaniel shot a tournament-low round of 309 on Saturday before backing up with a 325 on Sunday

• Three of McDaniel's four April tournaments will be at Hershey Country Club. After the 36-hole Hershey Cup on Sunday and Monday, the Green Terror will play Elizabethtown's Blue Jay Invitational on Thursday before heading to the Kravetz at Irondequoit and Oak Hill and wrapping up with the conference championship back at Hershey.
