Tatoian becomes all-time home run leader at Gwynedd Mercy

Dave Tatoian breaks Gwynedd Mercy homer record
Dave Tatoian made history on Thursday afternoon with a solo shot in the eighth inning of Gwynedd Mercy's 7-5 loss at home to Ursinus. The blast was the 21st of his career with the Griffins, breaking the program record of 20 held by Tim McMenamin and James Martin.

The senior out of Perkasie finished the day 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs and two runs scored.

On the year, Tatoian is hitting .461 with three homers and 27 RBIs. He leads the Atlantic East Conference in batting average and slugging percentage (.697) and is second in the conference in RBIs.

The Griffins (11-11, 4-2) are currently situated third in the Atlantic East Standings behind Cabrini and Marymount. The club has a pivotal conference doubleheader this weekend with a visit from local rival Immaculata.

Though the headlines belong with Tatoian, the Griffins' offense is also carried by senior Jason Mulvey who is hitting .400 on the season with nine doubles and six stolen bases. As a club, the Griffins .318 team batting average is the best in the conference by nearly 30 points.
