Baseball drops double header

Capital baseball returned from Oberlin empty-handed in their most recent contest, losing to Oberlin College by a score of 8-7 in both March 9 games. Even though they lost both games, the Crusaders were still able to put up some runs, most noticeably through Shane Lyons’ grand slam in the second of the two games. Baseball will next play on March 15 when they travel to Granville to take on the Big Red of Denison University.

Softball loses close tournament game

March 1 saw the end of Capital softball’s Florida trip, as well as a close loss to Neumann University from Aston, Pennsylvania. The 11-10 defeat was not without highlights, including shortstop Cory Mangen’s solo homer early in the game and two scoreless innings pitched from Brianna Reardon. Softball will be back in action on March 15 when they play a double header against Hanover College.
