SOFTBALL

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel split a doubleheader with Ursinus on Saturday to secure the No. 3 seed in the upcoming conference tournament, winning game one 6-3 before the Bears took game two, 4-3.

• McDaniel makes a return to the conference tournament for the first time since 2018. There was no conference tournament in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Green Terror missed the 2019 field by a game. McDaniel has not won its first game of the tournament since winning it all in 2015.

• Megan Horsey recorded a pair of hits the first game on Saturday to reach 100 hits for her career and become the 38th member of the Green Terror softball 100-hit club.

• McDaniel went 4-2 last week in its return home and did it in large part to hitting .362 as a team in the six games. Five of the regulars in the lineup hit .400 or better on the week. Mattie Whalen led the squad with a .571 average that included three doubles and a home run among her eight hits to earn conference player of the week honors. Hannah Raygor hit .563 with a double and two home runs. Kylie Sears (.467), Isabella Sylvester (.429), and Megan Horsey (.400) rounded out the group. The pitching staff also posted a 1.84 team ERA.

OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD

LAST TIME OUT: McDaniel had its final qualifying opportunity at the Elizabethtown Blue Jay Tune Up on Saturday. The men placed second while the women were seventh in the 16-team field.

• At Penn Relays on Friday, the 4x200-meter relay of Zach Stango, Alex Huffer, Nick Razze, and Oral-Anthony Coleman broke the 25-year-old program record with a time of 1:29.13. Huffer and Razze also joined Anders Madsen and Tyler Richardson to turn in the No. 9 time in program history in the 4x400-meter relay, finishing third in the Pop Haddleton section with a time of 3:23.75. The women's 4x400-meter relay of Katie Morgan, Gabby Collins, Rachel Dixon, and Yeseniah Ortiz also posted a season-best time with a mark of 4:16.51.

• The Green Terror has no fewer than 82 conference qualifiers for this weekend's championship. Nick Razze (400 hurdles) and Tyren Proctor (110 hurdles) go into the weekend with top seeds in their respective events. Josh Sproul ranks second in the high jump while Oral-Anthony Coleman is ranked fourth in both the 100 and 200 as well as the long jump. Sproul is tied with Coleman for fourth in the long jump as well. Chett Brunner is third in the shot put and fourth in the discus. On the women's side, Katie Morgan is fifth in the 400 and sixth in the 200 while Sarah case is sixth in the shot put.
