Spring athletics are just warming up!

Spring sports are in full bloom, and we have a number of great accomplishments already on the books for the Post University Eagles. Here's a look at some of the most recent highlights from around Post University athletics. As always, you can read about all our teams on the Post University Eagles website, and don't forget to follow @GoPostEagles on Twitter for real-time game updates, recaps, photos, and news.

Having a ball

Junior Ross Earnshaw of the Post University golf team was named Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Player of the Week on March 25. This is the second time he's won the award, also having been recognized during his freshman year in 2011. It's the fifth time the CACC has honored Ross in his career.


Big with the bats

The Post University baseball team is 7-7 after splitting a doubleheader against Felician on March 23. The Eagles took game one after Junior Mike Shada hit a walk-off ground-rule double to center field. Shown here is senior Todd Blair, who scored one of the runs in the Eagles' 7-6 win.


Full swing

Softball season is underway, and the Eagles split their home-opening doubleheader against Mercy on March 22. The Eagles dropped the first game 9-5 in extra innings before taking game two with a 6-4 victory. Shown here is Junior Rebecca Erb, who was 4-for-7 on the day and had two doubles and two runs scored.


Best hoof forward

Post University's equestrian teams have had a number of competitions this semester. Our Intercollegiate Dressage Team competed at a show hosted by University of Massachusetts on March 2. Shown here is Alyssa Segala, dressage Team Captain, who placed eighth with a score of 56.6 percent in her First Level class. Our IHSA Western Team also rode at a show hosted by Mount Holyoke College in early March. The team's Amanda Nygren placed third in Novice Horsemanship, and Stephanie Thibault took first place in Intermediate II Horsemanship.


Congrats to all our athletes!
