W&M baseball welcoming College of Charleston for pivotal CAA clash

The William and Mary baseball team will return to Plumeri Park Friday against College of Charleston after a four-game road swing.

The Tribe, Charleston and UNC Wilmington each have six losses in Colonial Athletic Association play, two games behind first-place Northeastern.

William and Mary (25-21, 9-6 CAA) rolled past Towson 8-1 Sunday, led by Hunter Smith’s home run, three RBI, two runs and a double.

The Tribe took two of three from Towson and have won six of its last seven games.

Daniel Powers, who gained his fourth win of the season Sunday, and fellow senior Chase Bailey combined to limit the Tigers (16-25, 4-11) to eight hits.

The Tribe's weekend game times against Charleston are 6 p.m. Friday, 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

Track and field

The William and Mary men’s teams will compete in the CAA Championships on Friday and Saturday in Newark, Del., looking to sweep overall conference titles for the first time since 2013.

On Saturday at the Penn Relays, men’s senior Tucker Rizzi improved his lifetime-best by more than 3 meters for the second week in arow in the javelin, throwing 68.25 meters (223 feet, 11 inches) to win the college section of the event. It was the 16th-longest throw in school history and marked the first time a Tribe athlete won a Penn Relays title since Bob Smutsky’s javelin win in 2015.
