In analyzing the key to the game, Coach Darin Chaplain stated, "We didn't pass the ball well and we made too many mistakes. Our ef fort was good, but Milligan took advantage of our mistakes.

Rogers commented, "We played a lot better than we did last week but we're still not playing like we can. " I think we can go a long way this season if we learn to play con sistently." Chaplain also added, "This team is head and shoulders above any team we've ever had. But every team in the conference has gotten better as well. There are no easy matches on our schedule."

Cavalier Baseball Team Gears Up .. .Preparations for spring season in progress by Chris Howard Using fall practices, the base ball team is shaping up to swing away and batter up a strong spring. The 1994 squad finished last semester with an overall record of seven games below 500. They won nineteen games but lost twenty-six. The Cavaliers qualified for their first ever district tournament, but the team dropped its first two matches 4-1 and 6-4. However, they did pull off big regular season wins over two good teams. Their team held on for close wins over NCAA II Gardner Webb, 8-6, and NCAA IUNCA, 7-6. The M-AC sluggers are look ing to build off last year to have a strong season. Also, two returning players were All-Conference from last semester and expectations are fueled by a third place conference finish (12-9). With plenty of strengths, the biggest weakness on the field will be the loss of Lance McCall, who is finishing his degree this semester. McCall was named All-Con ference two consecutive seasons. His 38 runs batted in was second in the conference in 1994. "We've got a big hole to fill at second base", remarked Head Coach Darin Chaplain. Experience will be the prime strength in 1995. In Chaplain's third season, eighteen of this year's 38 players are returning from last year's squad. "We believe the seniors are our leaders," commented Chaplain. No official captain has been selected, so the leadership for the team will be expected from senior Shawn Wills. The offense will be led by All- Conference and All-District team member Joe Snyder. From the mound, the pitching staff will be led by Shane Hatcher for yet another year. The All-Con ference player finished 9-5 after lead ing the conference in record pitches. "They've done a real good job," stated Chaplain commenting about what he's seen of the freshmen and transfers thus far.
