SOFTBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel scored early in the opener but needed a seventh-inning home run to complete a sweep of Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. The Green Terror won the first game 3-1 and took game two, 4-2.

• Krista Waller earned CC Pitcher of the Week honors after being a key part of the Green Terror's 4-0 week. She earned the save in the opener of a sweep at Dickinson on Tuesday before going the distance in the game-one win at Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. She struck out five Diplomats along the way. In her eight innings of work, she did not allow an earned run.

• In the six conference games so far this season, McDaniel is hitting .348 as a team, which ranks third in the CC. Eight of the nine Green Terror regular hitters are hitting better than .300 in conference play. Evie Craig leads the way at .444 while Isabella Sylvester (.435), Megan Horsey (.421), and Makayla Calamita (.400) are all also over .400. The Green Terror is also third in ERA in conference games at 1.75.

BASEBALL

LAST TIME OUT: Haverford scored late in both games to sweep McDaniel on Sunday, winning 6-4 and 7-3.

• The Green Terror ranks in the top 15 in Division III in seven offensive categories, including leading the nation in triples at 0.93 per game. McDaniel is also fifth in sacrifice flies and eighth in both walks and on-base percentage. Individually, Shane Daly is seventh nationally in triples (0.25 per game) while Austin Goudeaux is 15th in walk (1.08 per game).

• McDaniel's 12 losses this season have been by a combined 23 runs. The Green Terror is just 2-6 this season in games decided by two runs or fewer, including three of its five conference losses. However, McDaniel's first three conference series have been against three of the top five teams in the standings at this point. Franklin & Marshall and Haverford have one combined conference loss while Gettysburg has one loss outside of Friday's loss to the Green Terror.

MEN'S LACROSSE

LAST TIME OUT: Haverford outscored McDaniel 5-1 after halftime for a 14-7 win on Thursday.

• Patrick Fegan netted a season-high four goals against Haverford last Thursday. It was his second hat trick of the season and fourth game with multiple goals. The attackman is the only Green Terror player who has registered a point in all 12 games this season and has an 18-game point-scoring streak that dates back to a career-best five goals in what would be the 2020 finale against St. Mary's.

MEN'S GOLF

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel finished tied for eighth at the Hershey Cup on Sunday and Monday.

• Chuck Csejka has been the Green Terror's low man at the team's last five tournaments. He run started with a one-under 143 at Royal Lakes on Sept. 26-27 before firing a one-over 145 at The Bridges in the fall. His spring has been a 148, 154, and 150 so far. Ryan McGarry led McDaniel in its first three tournaments of the year.

OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel had a split squad on Saturday, competing at both Messiah and Gallaudet.

• Nick Razze earned his second CC Track Athlete of the Week honors after posting a time of 54.04 seconds in the 400 hurdles on Saturday at Messiah. The No. 2 time in program history is also the top time in the conference this season and currently ranks fifth nationally.

• Matthew Becker turned in a program-record throw in the hammer at Gallaudet on Saturday. He throw of 38.45 meters was more than a half-meter longer than his previous best and topped Carlos Hernandez's record by 0.02 meters.

• Four of the five Green Terror women who toed the line for the 200 on Saturday at Messiah turned in personal-best times. Katie Morgan moved into eighth place on the program's all-time list with her time of 26.67 seconds. Gabby Collins (26.97), Yeseniah Ortiz (27.97), and Rachel Dixon (28.31) also turned in PRs.

WOMEN'S LACROSSE

LAST TIME OUT: Haverford jumped out to an early lead and never trailed, defeating McDaniel 20-8 on Sunday.

• Kealey Allison had a career day against Washington (Md.) last Wednesday, matching the program record with nine goals in the game. She nearly matched her previous best of eight goals in the first half, finding the back of the net seven times in the first 30 minutes. Allison's nine-goal outing was one day off from the 27th anniversary of Denise Sarver's nine-goal day on Apr. 5, 1995. Allison also pulled down a season-high 10 draws on Wednesday.

TENNIS

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel's women rallied with four singles wins to defeat Juniata 5-4 while the men dropped a 9-0 decision on Sunday.

• The Green Terror women won two matches over the weekend. McDaniel opened the weekend with a 9-0 win over Trinity (D.C.) on Saturday before edging Juniata 5-4 on Sunday behind four singles victories. Miranda Smith took the match-clinching point with a 10-7 super-tiebreak third set win at No. 5 singles after splitting 6-4 decisions in the first two sets. Kassidee Wright went 3-0 over the two matches while Carly Jarkiewicz went 3-1.
