An extreme­ly young Wolver­ines squad fin­ished 6–9 in 2013, high­light­ed by a CAC over­time vic­to­ry over Mary­mount, advanc­ing the Wolver­ines into the CAC Tour­na­ment for the first time since 2010. The ros­ter fea­tured just sev­en seniors and four of the top five lead­ing scor­ers were in their fresh­man sea­sons. Fol­low­ing the sea­son, face-off spe­cial­ist Michael McQuar­rie set Wes­ley records for face-off per­cent­age and face-offs won and was named Sec­ond Team All-CAC.

Wes­ley showed off its largest and best nucle­us of play­ers in pro­gram his­to­ry and fin­ished the 2013 sea­son with a 6–9 record. Seniors Jen Jacobs, Nina Cornog and Alyssa Bat­ty set new Wolver­ine career records for goals, draw con­trols and saves, respec­tive­ly, and head coach Deb­bie Windett became the school’s all-time leader in vic­to­ries.

Bat­ty also fin­ished the year ranked in the top 10 nation­al­ly in saves and saves per game while being named Sec­ond Team All-CAC. Jacobs and fel­low senior Jor­den Lutz also earned All-Con­fer­ence recog­ni­tion, giv­ing the Wolver­ines the most All-CAC selec­tions in team his­to­ry.

Robert Ehrhardt

Senior Robert Ehrhardt was named a GCAA All-Amer­i­can for the first time and led the Wolver­ines to a sec­ond place fin­ish at the 2013 CAC Tour­na­ment. Ehrhardt had one of the best indi­vid­ual sea­sons in Wes­ley his­to­ry, record­ing a 74.9 stroke aver­age and being named First Team All-CAC for the fourth straight year. Ehrhardt also earned medal­ist hon­ors at the Glenn Heath Ship­builders Memo­r­i­al after card­ing a CAC-record 140 (-2) over 36 holes, while shoot­ing a sec­ond-round 67 (-4), the sec­ond best sin­gle round in CAC his­to­ry. Ehrhardt also shot a sec­ond round 67 the week­end pri­or at the Her­shey Cup, his sec­ond of three rounds on the year where he fin­ished par or bet­ter. Fresh­man Mason Men­doza was also named CAC Rook­ie of the Year and First Team All-CAC, while Clay­ton Bunting received First Team acco­lades. Wes­ley also pro­vid­ed more his­to­ry as Madi­son Leone became the first female in school and CAC his­to­ry to par­tic­i­pate in a men’s sports cham­pi­onship.

 

 

 

Women’s Track

Twila McCrea

First-year head coach Stephen Kimes led the Wolver­ines to a fourth place fin­ish at the CAC Out­door Cham­pi­onships, more than dou­bling the points by Frost­burg in the process. With sev­er­al injuries on the squad, Wes­ley still saw 18 school records bro­ken in the win­ter and spring sea­sons com­bined. Senior Twila McCrea was named Sec­ond Team All-CAC in the 400-meter dash. She also was named All-Con­fer­ence in the 4x100-meter relay, along with sopho­more Ste­vi Car­pen­ter and fresh­men Tay­lor Lynch and Ker­ri Pagels. Fol­low­ing the year, senior Tristin Bur­ris was named a Cap­i­tal One Aca­d­e­m­ic All-Amer­i­can, CAC Female Schol­ar-Ath­lete of the Year and the CAC nom­i­nee for the NCAA Woman of the Year.

 

 

 

Men’s Track

Matt Bundy

With trips to the NCAA Nation­al Cham­pi­onships in both indoor and out­door track, junior Matt Bundy high­light­ed the sea­son for first-year head coach Stephen Kimes. Bundy won the 60-meter hur­dles at the CAC Cham­pi­onship in the win­ter to qual­i­fy for Nation­als before run­ning the sec­ond-fastest time in NCAA Divi­sion III in the 110-meter hur­dles while also win­ning his sec­ond straight ECAC Cham­pi­onship in the event. Fresh­man Robert Wig­gs was also an All-CAC per­former in both the long and triple jump as 13 school records were bro­ken on the year.

 

Base­ball

Corey Jef­fer­son

Grad­u­a­tion took its toll on the 2013 Wes­ley Col­lege base­ball team, but the Wolver­ines still man­aged to record a 21–19 record with a trip to the CAC Semi­fi­nals. Open­ing the year with an 8–2 record, Wes­ley won three of its five CAC series and turned an NCAA All-Divi­sions record sev­en dou­ble plays in a 10-inning game against Mary Wash­ing­ton in the sec­ond round of the CAC Tour­na­ment. Fol­low­ing the year, fresh­man Trevor Mears was named the CAC Rook­ie of the Year while senior bat­tery mates Jor­dan Lozzi and Corey Jef­fer­son earned First and Sec­ond Team hon­ors, respec­tive­ly.

 

Soft­ball

Steph Cara­coz­za

Sev­en fresh­men start­ed reg­u­lar­ly for the 2013 Wes­ley Col­lege soft­ball team, which fin­ished 12–23 and earned its first trip to the CAC Play­offs since 2011. In addi­tion to earn­ing All-CAC hon­ors, first-year out­field­er Steph Cara­coz­za had one of the best years in Wolver­ines sin­gle-sea­son his­to­ry with a .412 bat­ting aver­age and 47 base hits. Fel­low fresh­men Sarah Saun­ders, Kay­la Fro­mal and Alli­son Kraky also lit­tered their names all over the school’s sin­gle-sea­son record book, which is def­i­nite­ly a great sign for the future of Wes­ley soft­ball. Junior infield­er Ash­ly Ben­dorovich also had a career year, lead­ing the squad with three home runs and 26 RBIs in addi­tion to earn­ing CAC Play­er of the Week hon­ors.
