Baseball vs Bucknell (Saturday)
Spent a lovely weather afternoon at Kamine Stadium.  The Leopard starters, Connor Ortolff and Mitch Leeds, pitched very well.  Ortolff gave up 4 runs all unearned.

The team looked tight as they knew the season was on the line today.  Both the hitting (anemic - could not buy a two out hit) and the fielding (confusion in the outfield and a dropped ball by the Frosh First Basemen on the first Bison batter of the game) led to an immediate deficit in Game One.  

The Bison pitchers pitched well ...
vs. Lehigh
Friday, April 18, 7:00 PM at Fisher.  It's the season finale for the Pards.  Lehigh, a top-20 ranked team, will go on to the PL tourney and possibly to the NCAAs as well.

As noted in a previous thread,
    The game will have an admission fee of $5 for bleacher seats and $10 for chairback
    seats at the gate. Fans should enter Fisher Stadium through Gate #2.
Looks as if the weather will cooperate; low 50s and no rain and just a bit ...
Fraternity Probation
The Lafayette faculty met in a special session last evening and took the most drastic measures to abolish hazing at the college that have ever been taken. Fifty-four Sophomores have been suspended indefinitely and 17 other members of the class have been put on probation, admonished and their scholarships taken away from them. All the trouble grew out of a large hazing bee the Sophomore class conducted a week ago. The class scoured the campus and gathered together all the Freshmen within reach an ...
Softball - question for Xbo and other softball savants
Sunday was senior day and seniors Amy Gerhardt and Melissa Robinson were recognized before the game.  They came into the day with a 4-25 overall record and a 2-9 PL record. Coach Varner left Robinson pitch the full game and she picked up just her 3rd win of the year.

The team is down to 12 healthy players after another player deserted the team last week. Watching play over the last few weeks it's obvious that those remaining have an improved esprit de corps. Maybe it wasn't so bad that ...

Union College Frozen Four Championship
We can all take heart from Union's national collegiate hockey championship in Philadelphia last weekend. They actually won with all need based aid players against BC and Minnesota. We got a taste of Minnesota basketball this past season. Both BC and Minnesota were laden with NHL draft picks and Union had only one. This was a real miracle on ice. It shows what can be done with a sport if the school commits and hires a fantastic coach to carry on a commitment to a program. The hockey team was DIII ...
Penn just lost three
The Inquirer says Penn guards Tony Bagtas and Julian Harrell are leaving, and forward Henry Farrell won't play next year. A couple of our guys were considering Penn. Darnell Foreman, a high school teammate of Eric Stafford, supposedly is looking at UP.
2014-15 Schedule
Because that would make sense?!

Also, not in favor of scheduling a D3 school, even if it is finals week.
Boston U loses three players - including Maurice Watson Jr,
Watson committed to Big East Creighton.

Quite correct by pards4.  Compare our meager funding to Loyola and even LU.
