Baseball season has made its return at Wofford, and the Terriers were victorious in their matchup against UNC Asheville on March 9. At the time of the game, the Terriers had a 2 to 5 losing record, but the win against Asheville gave the team some momentum. 

The Terriers have taken on George Mason University in a three-part game series with two wins and a loss with scores of 11-10, 12-4 and 15-13. 

More famously known, the Terriers played the University of Georgia which certainly gained some attraction from the many Southeastern Conference fans but fell to the Bulldogs with a score of 1-7. 

They also played Monmouth University from West Long Branch New Jersey but were overtaken and lost with a score of 9-18.

Next up was Marist College, with a close but losing score of 1-2. The second game against Monmouth was canceled. The Terriers had their second chance at the University of Georgia earlier this month on March 1, but lost again with another close score of 6-7. 

The Terriers broke this ominous losing streak with a win against the University of North Carolina Asheville on  March 2, with a score of 9-8. 

Freshman Michael Sills ’25 was first to pitch. This was Sills’ first win under his belt in his collegiate career. He was able to only allow three free passes and not surrender a hit or a run. Sills ’25 struck out six. 

Later in the game, Asheville was quick to respond to the Terrier’s gaining momentum. Asheville had an eight-run sixth inning. Asheville was able to load the bases, with a later fielding error bringing two more home. Two runs batted in followed, and the Asheville bulldogs gained the lead 8-6. 

At the bottom of the seventh inning, Wofford was able to get a man home and tighten up the score 8-7 after having runners on second and third. In the eighth inning, Wofford was able to secure and obtain the lead. With two runners on the bases, number eight, Jack Renwick ’24 stepped up to the plate and was able to bring all three home, including himself making the score 9-8. 

After the home game against Asheville, the Terriers remained home for a four-game series against the University of Pennsylvania. The Terriers were successful in winning three of the four games in the series, with winning scores of 4-2, 6-5 and 5-4. 

They took on Lafayette College in a three game series March 11, 12 and 13 at home, Cincinnati on March 15, Winthrop University on March 16 and Belmont University on March 18. 

The Terriers also have upcoming games with USC Upstate, Gardner-Webb, Winthrop and a three-part game series in Dallas, Texas against Dallas Baptist University. On March 22, The Terriers will take on Dallas Baptist University. 

Additionally, Wofford will play SO-Con rival, the Citadel, on April 6, in what will likely be the biggest game this season.
