LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel forged a split at Ursinus on Saturday. After falling 4-2 in game one, the Green Terror scored eight runs early for a 13-3 victory.

• Shane Daly had himself a weekend, going 9-for-15 over the three games. He not only hit .600 but also slugged 1.467, rapping out three doubles, two triples, and two home runs among his nine hits. He also led the team with six RBIs and six runs scored. For the year, he is hitting a team-best .401 with 57 hits, which is the most by any Green Terror rookie. He enters the final two weeks of the regular season 10 shy of Marty Windisch's single-season record of 67. He already owns the single-season triples record and is one shy of the runs record.


LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel's men won three of the four contested singles matches at Hood on Saturday for a 4-3 win while the women fell, 8-1.

• The Green Terror got straight-set wins out of three of its four singles players on Saturday to edge out Hood for its first win of the year. Shawn Southard and Drew Ryder rounded out 2-0 days with wins in singles. Southard won No. 4 singles 6-2, 6-1 while Ryder was a 6-4, 6-4 winner at third singles. Evan Darr captured No. 1 singles, taking the first set 7-6 with a 7-4 tiebreaker win and closing out the victory with a 6-2 win in the second set.


LAST TIME OUT: Swarthmore jumped out to an 8-1 first-quarter lead en route to an 18-8 victory over McDaniel on Saturday.

• Peter Cornell came on in relief in goal on Saturday and made a career-high 11 saves in just over 35 minutes of action between the pipes. The junior had entered the game with just three stops in 51 minutes of game time.

• The Green Terror has found itself in early deficits in each of the last two games. McDaniel got down 7-1 at Gettysburg on Wednesday before playing the No. 15 team virtually even the over the last 45 minutes. The same held true three days later at home, finding themselves in an 8-1 hole after one quarter but playing the rest of the game with Swarthmore to a three-goal margin that included a 5-5 second half.


LAST TIME OUT: Swarthmore built an early lead and ultimately topped McDaniel in a back-and-forth affair on Saturday, 11-10.

• The Green Terror find itself in the middle of a logjam in the conference standings with two weeks left in the regular season. McDaniel is currently part of a five-way tie for fourth place at 2-3 with four games to play. The Green Terror is already 1-1 against the other four teams in the mix with two of their final four games against the other two teams. The final two weeks starts with Dickinson, who sits one game behind the logjam and in need of a win to stay in the mix. McDaniel also still has to play Gettysburg in the final two weeks. The Bullets are currently tied with Franklin & Marshall at 5-0 atop the standings.


LAST TIME OUT: Haverford scored late to secure a pair of tightly-contested games on Saturday, 5-2 and 4-2.

• Bella Sylvester has been the catalyst since moving to the top of the lineup after the team returned to Florida. She is hitting a team-best .435 in 13 games played and has had at least one hit in 12 of those games, including six multiple-hit outings.

• Makayla Calamita and Evie Craig are doing their jobs driving in the baserunners ahead of them in the lineup. Calamita is hitting a team-best .410 with 19 RBIs while Craig is hitting .407 with 21 driven in.


LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel finished fifth at the Kravetz Invitational on Friday and Saturday.

• The Green Terror tees it up for the 54-hole Centennial Conference Championship at Hershey Country Club this weekend. McDaniel is in search of its first title since 2013 and eighth overall. In the previous 27 championships, the Green Terror has finished first or second 18 times. All five players in the projected lineup this weekend have a stroke average better than 79.0 this season. Ryan McGarry (74.24) and Chuck Csejka (74.29) have led the way all year but Csejka has the edge in the eight rounds this spring (76.0-77.0).


LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel finished sixth at the Gettysburg Invitational on Apr. 2-3.

• The Green Terror has its final tune-up before the conference championship at Honeybrook Golf Club on Friday. It will also serve as a preview of next weekend's 36-hole championship on the same course.


LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel won five individual events and a pair of relays at the non-scoring Goucher Blue & Gold Classic on Friday.

• The Green Terror throwers combined for 11 season-best marks at Goucher this weekend out of 19 competitors across the four throwing events. Led by Chett Brunner's 40.93-meter throw in the discus, four of the six discus marks were season bests. Four of the five hammer marks were personal-best throws, including Matthew Becker's program-record throw of 40.91 meters. Brunner and Becker also joined Collin Wainwright with season-best marks in the shot put.

• The women had their most success between 200 and 400 meters on the track. Six of the eight 200/400 marks were season bests for the McDaniel sprinters and the 4x100- and 4x400-meter relays both turned in their best times of the year.
