Cal State Northridge has put together a solid season. Thus far, their pitching staff is ranked in the top-10 in all of Division-1 in ERA. Calvin Copping (BT ’15) is part of the reason for this. In his last outing, Copping went six innings while allowing only two runs.
Chris Monaco (BT ’15) out of Virginia Tech earned his second win of the season this week.

Florida Atlantic continues their hot season. This past week, Sean Labsan (BT ’14) led the Owls to an upset over #6 Central Florida. Central Florida is a top three team in runs scored this season, but Labsan held them to one run on four hits with a career high 10 strike outs over six innings of work. Labsan allowed a home run to the first batter he saw, and did not let the opponent score again.
