In a historic feat, Holy Family claimed victory in its maiden Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) series, showcasing exceptional late-game prowess to secure wins of 10-9 and 6-2 against Chestnut Hill on Friday. 
 
The opening game saw Zach Morales (Barrington, N.J./Triton Regional (PSU-Abington)) etch his name in the records with a dramatic walk-off home run. Morales' standout performance included a 3-for-5 batting display, featuring two crucial home runs and three runs batted in. Additionally, Dalton Turner (Langorne, Pa./Neshaminy (Bucks County CC)) contributed significantly with multiple hits, RBIs, and a homer, leading the team to a thrilling victory. 
 
As the day progressed, Holy Family's resilience came to the fore in the second game, highlighted by an impressive six-run sixth inning. Turner once again played a pivotal role, delivering a game-tying two-run double to fuel the team's momentum. 
 
Pitching excellence was also evident through Casey Murphy (Merion Station, Pa./Lower Merion (Ursinus College)), who secured his third consecutive complete-game win in the second match. With exceptional control, Murphy conceded only one earned run on two hits while striking out eight batters and issuing just one walk. 
 
Looking ahead, Holy Family (11-11) will play a doubleheader against Caldwell at Father Judge High School on Sunday at 12 p.m.

Anthony Boccio (Coatesville, Pa./Coatesville) delivered a standout performance, going 4-for-7 with three runs scored and a pair of RBIs, propelling West Chester to a doubleheader sweep over Lock Haven at Watkins Field on Friday afternoon. 
 
This crucial sweep couldn't have come at a better time for West Chester (12-5-1, 5-5-0 PSAC East), as it pulls them back to .500 in the conference standings following a challenging five-game losing streak.
 
The Golden Rams showcased their offensive prowess by scoring in bunches during their final at-bats in both games. In the second game, a six-run explosion in the top of the sixth inning pushed what was a close one-run contest beyond Lock Haven's reach. As darkness descended, the game was called after the sixth inning, securing a decisive 10-3 victory for the purple and gold. 
 
Similarly, in the opener, a four-run surge in the seventh inning extended West Chester's narrow one-run lead to a commanding five-run advantage, sealing a 9-4 triumph.

West Chester returns home Monday to finish the four-game series with Lock Haven. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. at Serpico Stadium.
