Bridgewater State University Bears Roundup

Baseball

BSU baseball hit a skid as of recent. Before a much needed 3-1 victory over Curry College in non-conference action, the Bears had dropped nine games straight, including dropping their first four games in the young MASCAC season.

In a game at Brandies University, senior right fielder Keaghan Austin-MacInnis (pictured above) broke out for two HRs on a 3-for-4 game that included two doubles and six RBIs in a 9-7 loss.

Austin-MacInnis leads the team with two HRs and is tied with first baseman Reed Pike for the team-lead with 10 RBIs.

Shortstop Ryan Feeney has continued his successful season, leading the team with a .382 batting average, 29 hits, 12 runs scored and five doubles.

Senior center fielder Travis Ritchie leads the team with his five stolen bases, and sits second in batting average (.329) and hits (25).

On the mound, Shane Surette has posted the lowest ERA on the club at 3.20, and currently sits at 2-2 with six appearances, four of those being starts.

BSU will return to MASCAC action Saturday when they host a double header against Worcester St., starting at 12 p.m.

Softball

The Lady Bears sit right in the middle of the MASCAC with a 2-2 conference record (12-11 overall).

Kelly McCarthy leads all BSU hitters with a .436 batting average, three home runs and 20 RBIs at the plate.

On the mound, McCarthy has hurled her way to a 10-5 record over 16 starts. She has recorded 65 strikeouts over that span, with a 1.55 ERA.

Tara McCann (#22) ranks second on the team with a .352 average, 25 hits, and 15 RBIs.

BSU softball will return to MASCAC action with a double header beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday at Alumni Field as they host Worcester St.

Track & Field

At the AIC Yellow Jacket Invitational, BSU finished seventh on the men’s side of the event. Conor Murtagh placed first in the 110-meter hurdles (14.68), while Andrew Couture won the 200-meter dash (22.66).

The women finished third with 70 team points. The Bear’s 4×400 relay team consisting of Amanda Lane, Abbie Pustis, Jayci Andrews and Anyelina Martinez took first place at 4:02.91, qualifying the group for the ECAC DIII Championships.
