The SMCM baseball team started their season off right with a win over Christopher Newport University. The final score was 4-3 with this being their first win in conference games. The team was led by captains Sam Beatty, Alex Lenovitz, Luke Green, and Sam Coe. Along with the captains, the team consists of eight first-years, six sophomores, nine juniors, and seven seniors. This first win against Christopher Newport University brings hope for this season that the team will continue to bring home wins for St. Mary’s as the team will be looking forward to rectifying last season’s record of 14-24.
The recent trend of winter weather has thrown a wrench into the scheduled season for the baseball team. Head Coach Lew Jenkins announced that the home-opening series against Gwynedd Mercy University which would have taken place over the weekend of February 15and 16 has been cancelled. While this cancels the team’s first three-game series, their next three-game series will be against Mount St. Mary’s on February 22. The team’s next conference game will be on March 7 against York College of Pennsylvania. The game against York will be important to the team in that they won one out of three games played against them last season, but if the first game is any indication, this will be a great season. Before their next conference game, the team will face Randolph-Macon College on February 27, McDaniel College for a two-game series on March 1, and Gettysburg College on March 2.
