Jefferson Baseball
Thomas Jefferson entered the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship Tournament with a solid 31-14 record, earning themselves a bye in the initial double elimination stage. However, their journey hit a snag on Thursday as they faced Felician University (29-21) in their first game, succumbing to a 10-4 defeat and slipping into the loser's bracket. 
Undeterred, Jefferson rallied in their next matchup later in the day against Goldey-Beacom College (33-19). With the score deadlocked at 8-8 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, the Rams managed to plate four crucial runs over the next two frames, clinching a hard-fought 12-8 victory and securing their advancement to the second day of the tournament on Friday. 
Notably, Josh Lopez etched his name into the school's history books by smashing his way to a new record. His homer in the second game saw him surpass the previous mark for most home runs in a single season, notching an impressive total of 20 homers during the intense contest. The record had belonged to Bob File who hit 19 dingers during the 1998 season. 
Lopez has now surpassed 31 homeruns in his career for Jefferson. 
The Rams will face the loser of Friday morning's contest between Felician and Post on Friday afternoon. The winner will move on to play Saturday and the loser will be eliminated.
