Terrier alumni are making their mark early on in the 2021 college baseball season.
About half of all college teams are a couple of weeks into their respective seasons while more will kick into gear this week and next.

The Michigan Wolverines are 4-1. Lefthander, Connor O'Halloran got his first NCAA D1 appearance in a 7-0 victory over Iowa. Connor fanned two in 2IP. The Wolverines are currently ranked #22 in the nation.
Sam Turcotte had another outstanding start Friday night in a 4-3 Seawolves win versus Central Connecticut State.

Righthander, Ben Abram has logged 8.1 innings for the 6-6 Oklahoma Sooners. He has eight strikeouts and opponents are hitting just .267
Freshman lefty Campbell Ellis got his first taste of NCAA D1 action this past week for 7-6 VCU. Campbell threw 2.2 innings, allowed three hits and struck out one. The Rams took down #18 Virginia Tech by a 10-7 score earlier in the week.
