Eight Terrier Alumni celebrated clinching the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC- NCAA D1) regular season title for the second time in three seasons this past weekend.

In the game that put the Griffs over the top, Terrier alumni Brian Burton (Junior) had a team high five hits to go along with six RBI.
Brian is hitting .357 on the season with eight homers.
Outfielder Ian Choy (Senior) has been a huge part of the Golden Griffins amazing run in recent years. He continues to stay hot through his senior year with an on base percentage of .523 to go along with a stellar .398 batting average.
Lefty Mike Goemans picked up the win in the conference clinching game and also threw a one hit complete game shut out last weekend versus Manhattan College. For the third consecutive year he leads the Griffs in innings pitched.
Left hander Shane Davis leads all Canisius pitchers with seven wins this season.
Senior alumni Chris Cox sports a 4-2 record on the mound and freshman Billy Martin also has four wins. Lefty Nathan Linseman is on the road back from Tommy John surgery and picked up his first college career victory recently.
