Spring Sports: What You Missed While You Were Gone

Spring sportsAs finals came to a close on May 11, many students packed their bags and headed home for the summer. However, students that participated in spring sports remained behind as each of their seasons rolled on.

The baseball team had an excellent bounce back year, after finishing under .500 last season with a record of 2227. This following season the team posted a record of 3619, including a record of 257 in the NEC. Possibly the most impressive statistic about their record was that the Hawks were near unbeatable at home, compiling a record of 193 on home turf.

The Hawks season came to an end on May 22, when they fell to Sacred Heart 92 in the NEC Championship game at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Connecticut. The loss gave the Hawks a second place finish, which is a huge improvement on last season.

“It was a fun fulfilling year and we had a unique team which helped us make it as far as we did. They liked each other and each guy cared about the next and it helped us be a successful team,” said Head Coach Dean Ehehalt.

Leading the way offensively for the Hawks this past season was senior infielder Ryan Terry. Terry tore it up in his final season as a Hawk, leading the team in hits, RBIs, runs scored, doubles, and batting average. Terry’s talents did not go unnoticed by pro scouts, as Terry was selected in the 21st round (660th overall)by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft.

“Ryan has been a great player for a long time for us. He was a catalyst for us and loves to do well and win. He was instrumental in our success last year on and off the field,” said Ehehalt.

Men’s Soccer Looks to Take Next Step in 2011

default article imageComing into the new soccer season, the men’s soccer program is expecting big things. As the two-time defending NEC champions, they were once again picked to take the division. Six seasons in a row they have taken the regular-season title and the 2011 season hopes to bring the seventh.

After a 2010 season where the Hawks remained in the national rankings and hosted a home NCAA tournament first round game, they are looking to continue their winning ways.

Going into the season in mid-August, they were chosen as the 27th best team in the nation according to College Soccer News. Coach Robert McCourt led the Hawks to 14 wins in 2010 and now he surely hopes to top that mark.

Led by Ryan Kinne, the Hawk offense will look to post its 1.80 goals per game mark. With big shoes to fill, they will be led by veteran players such as RJ Allen, Anthony Vazquez and Max Hamilton. This trio was quite a standout in NEC play last year and along with them, the Hawks can be led by first team all NEC midfielder Ryan Clark.

Hawk recognition has come from other news sources besides the College News polls, such as the Soccer America’s Preseason polls and All-American nominations. Monmouth took the 21st ranking in this and RJ Allen was also named to its preseason All-American squad. Allen is a major weapon for the team this year and it sure seems like many NEC teams will feel his presence.

Ryan credits his teammates for all of the credit and attention he is getting. “Without my teammates I would not be getting all of the recognition, so it is all because of them that I am where I am,” Allen said.
