Men’s Track & Field 

As the Warriors Track and Field conclude their indoor season, they race into the outdoor season with a load of confidence. The men finished second overall in the PSAC indoor championship, as well as an outstanding individual effort from ten Warriors with top three finishes. They enter the outdoor season with a record-breaking 4×400 team, and a well-balanced plethora of talent.  

Men’s Baseball 

Despite the weather conflicts, and a change in their home field the Warriors are off to a fantastic start. Already 5-1 on the season the upperclassmen laden team is looking to leave a lasting impact this season. In all of their 5 wins they have shown to be an extremely electrifying team to play. 

Men’s Rugby 

The Men’s Rugby season comes into their spring season with a reputation in the MARC. Noted as the hardest hitting team in the conference, the boys are looking to leave a dent in this year’s conference play. With their returning speed-filled back-line and a wealth of power upfront they look to overpower the competition; possibly even make a run into the post season. 

Women’s Lacrosse  

The Women’s Lacrosse team comes into this season ranked sixth in the nation. The lady warriors also are ranked second in the PSAC, and with a bitter loss in the NCAA D2 semifinals the ladies are coming back ready to play. Their impressive 15-4 season last year will only improve as they come into a schedule with no foe they haven’t defeated. Come watch them in their home opener against Chestnut Hill Thursday, March 7.  

Women’s Softball  

The softball team has been faced with serious competition thus far. A record of 2-8 doesn’t show the overall toughness of the team, nor does it highlight how close most of the games were. Despite an unfavorable start to the season, they are on a two-game win streak and look to tear up the rest of their competitors. Wish them luck as they take on a tough Virginia State team, and support them in their home opener against close opponent Chestnut Hill March 14  

Women’s Track and field 

The women’s track team has finished out their indoor season with an impressive fourth place spot in the PSAC championship. They had a season full of fantastic races, and their outdoor season is looking even more promising. Before they sprint into spring, the ladies will have a nice break before they fly down to Charlotte, NC for the 49er classic.
