As winter turns to spring and the end of the school year approaches, the spring sports at Mount St. Mary’s University have kicked into full gear.
As their seasons begins to wrap up, let’s take a look at how some of the teams are doing.
The Mount baseball team has not exactly had the season they hoped for. Sitting at 9-21 and coming off a rough stretch of games against NEC competition, it’s safe to say that the results have not always been pretty.
There have, though, been some great individual performances.
Senior catcher, Thomas Bramley, leads the team in home runs with eight and has put together a stellar campaign. Sophomores Efrain Correa Jr. and Aiden Tierey have also thrived at the plate.
The softball team has had success both in terms of team performance and individual success. Currently sitting at 20-15, the team has played very well throughout the spring.
There have been several awards given to Mount softball players, including Olivia Murphy being named NEC Rookie of the Week, and Abigayle Perry winning NEC Player of the Week.
Perry, in particular, has had a stellar year with five home runs.
While the Mount lacrosse team has had its ups and downs on its way to a 5-8 total record, they have pulled off some impressive victories.
Early in the season, they upset Navy in a huge win. The team has also had some individual successes as well, especially with Griffin McGinley taking home a pair of player of the week honors early in the season.
The women’s lacrosse team at the Mount has been relatively dominant so far this season with a 10-4 record. They have also played very well against teams in their own conference, boding well for the postseason.
Several players have earned player of the week awards; most recently, Dani Donoghue as the NEC Player of the Week, and Madison Bradley as NEC Defensive Player of the Week.
