Teams get early jump in conference play


The softball team bounced back from a few MAC losses to tally its first conference win against King’s College on March 27.

The team’s bats came alive, smashing three home runs during the game. Juniors Michele Morongell and Molly Oberholzer both belted three RBIs in the 11-8 win. Sophomore Maggie McGowan also joined the home run frenzy, hitting one of her own.

Sophomore Theresa Esposito had a productive day at the plate, finishing with three hits. Junior Kristine Rosko didn’t walk a single hitter. Rosko was also able to keep hitters off balance as she struck out three and gave up only four earned runs.


In a fierce competition with Manhattanville, early last week, the baseball team rallied in the bottom of the seventh inning to earn its first MAC win in the team’s history.

Eastern was down by a five runs before the team came to life, making a stunning comeback.

Sophomore shortstop Scott Renauro knocked in two runs during the contest. His second run, a flare to center field, ended up being the game winner.

Senior Dan Garcia collected two hits while driving in a run.

Women’s Lacrosse

The women’s lacrosse team earned back-to-back MAC wins in the same week.

The Lady Eagles were able to keep Misericordia and Alvernia to single digits in both games.

Junior Grace Griffith found the back of the net seven times in the fight against Misericordia as the team cruised to a 19-6 win.

Alvernia didn’t stand a chance against the Eagles, as Griffith tallied on six more goals and senior Krystal Cairns dished out three assists in the 15-7 win.

Men’s Lacrosse

Men’s lacrosse earned a huge win last week when it hosted Widener in its first MAC contest of the season.

Widener was a revenge game for the Eagles, so they came out scoring. First-year Will Johnson poured in three goals to give Eastern the 7-5 win.

First-year Aaron Benz collected 11 saves in the game.

Men’s Tennis

Men’s tennis starts MAC play on March 30, travelling to Manhattanville College.

Senior Jordan Gates looks to lead the team for the first time during MAC play.
