A pair of McDaniel baseball players are playing in high-profile summer collegiate baseball leagues. Antonio Rosanova is playing this summer for the North Adams SteepleCats of the New England Collegiate Baseball League while Will Strauss is part of the Sag Harbor Whalers of the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League.
Allison Farrell, a senior on the women’s lacrosse team, was named the Centennial Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year in her sport. Farrell was one of 27 Green Terror spring student-athletes named to the CC Spring Academic Honor Roll.
Antonio Rosanova led McDaniel with six hits, five RBIs and five runs scored in the two games, including a four-hit, three-RBI nightcap. Swarthmore scored 15 runs in the sixth inning or later to sweep a doubleheader from McDaniel. The Garnet staved off a ninth-inning rally by the Green Terror for a 14-12 win before completing the sweep, 10-7.
Will Strauss (Freeport, N.Y./Waldorf) led McDaniel with three hits in the twinbill. McDaniel took advantage of Franklin & Marshall miscues in game one to earn a doubleheader split. The Green Terror captured the opener 8-3 before the Diplomats responded with a 7-0 win in game two.
Nick Valori led the Green Terror with three hits on the day, giving him 211 for his career and breaking the program record. McDaniel jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning en route to a 13-6 victory over Washington (Md.).
Antonio Rosanova led McDaniel with five hits on the day, including one of two four-hit performances in game one. McDaniel plated two runs in the bottom of the ninth for a game-one win before scoring early in game two to complete the sweep of Muhlenberg. The Green Terror outslugged the Mules in the opener for an 11-10 win before winning a much lower-scoring nightcap, 4-2.
Zach Fortuna pitched eight strong innings for the Green Terror, fanning six batters and allowing just three hits. Jordan Rhodes closed out a 1-2-3 ninth for his first collegiate save. McDaniel played some small ball to notch a 2-1 victory over Dickinson.
Nick Valori led the Green Terror with five hits on the afternoon. Ursinus scored in the latter innings of both games to sweep a doubleheader at McDaniel. The Bears now stand as the only remaining conference undefeated team after recording a pair of 8-5 victories.
Brad Thaxton led the Green Terror with a 2-for-2 day off the bench in game two. Haverford rapped out 28 hits in a doubleheader sweep of McDaniel. The Fords captured the opener 10-0 before completing the sweep behind a 12-run fifth inning, 17-9.
