Bases Loaded

As of the weekend, Moravian softball had played 29 consecutive winning games, two players set personal records, and a third broke a national record. See Page 3.

InCommon also would like to correct an oversight. Baseball coach Ed Little also crossed home plate for his 300th career win, at the March 27 game against Lebanon Valley College. More next week.

Finally, with a different kind of ball: Jason Toedter ’04 became the first male player in College history to win the Middle Atlantic Conference individual championship in tennis. There will be more next week on him, too.

Play Ball!

It’s an amazing time in Moravian softball, the top-ranked team in the nation. The women had won 29 consecutive games until a double-header defeat by William Paterson University on April 22. Then they came back over the weekend by twice beating Widener University.

Between April 15, 2003, and April 17, 2004, shortstop Heather Bortz ’05, Allentown, got a hit at every one of the 44 games she played, breaking the NCAA all-division record. Since then, she has continued to break her own record. At the Widener game, she scored her 180th hit, tying the Colelge record set by Christine Hill in 1995-98.

The weekend of April 15-17, pitcher Meagan Hennessy ’06, Freehold, N.J., threw three complete shutouts, including a no-hitter (the first of her college career) against Delaware Valley and Haverford Colleges and Susquehanna University. Then, in the Widener game, she struck out 15 batters, breaking her own record.
