Ithaca College Sports Update

Besides the Ithaca College website, this may be the only place to get Ithaca College sports news (well, at least a few times per year). First, the Ithaca College Women's Crew team is ranked #1 in the NCAA Division III Varsity Eights. If you know what a Varsity Eight is, please let me know.

In addition, earlier this week, Ithaca's baseball team broke six school records in defeating Cazenovia 37-11. Yes, that was a baseball score. Here is the box score of the game. I feel a little bad for Cazenovia since they were winning 8-4 after 3 innings only to be outscored 33-3 over the next six innings. Well, maybe I don't feel bad since Ithaca also tied a school record by having six batters hit by a pitch in the game. Here's a little more info on the game:

The Bombers’ 33 hits, 60 at-bats and 32 RBI all set single-game school records. Senior outfielder Ben McBride (Ridgefield/Ridgefield, Conn.) tied the NCAA single-game record with nine at-bats, finishing 4-for-9 with a grand slam and six RBI. Freshman infielder Todd Czerno (Columbia/Brainard) broke a school record with three hit by pitches. Sophomore outfielder Jeremy Peters (Thomas R. Proctor/Utica) hit his first two career home runs (both in the ninth inning), ending 3-for-4 with six RBI and three runs scored. Freshman first baseman Eric Ferguson (Columbia/East Greenbush) was 4-for-5 with four RBI and his first career home run. Junior outfielder PJ Canestrari (Randolph/Ironia, N.J.) also hit a grand slam.
