Grano hits first home run on the Mont Alto baseball field

Penn State Mont Alto softball and baseball players are making history!  Junior Frank Grano sent the ball out of the park for a two-run home run against Penn State Wilkes Barre during a double header last Saturday. Grano is the first baseball player to hit a home run on the new baseball field. In addition, Derek Coy was named USCAA Co-Pitcher of the Week for the third time this season. Coy pitched a 13-strikeout no-hitter while allowing only one walk against Penn State Wilkes Barre.  Baseball is 7-3 in PSUAC play.

In softball news, freshman Laura Dell hit a home run and a double during Mont Alto's first game at Penn State Schuylkill.  During the team's second game, junior Vickie Johnson hit a 2-run home run. Softball is 3-3 in PSUAC play.
