‘Hitting is contagious’: Duke softball continues offensive dominance in sweep of Virginia

(04/12/22 4:52am)

2021 was a breakout year for Duke, as “Team Four” was the ACC champion, made the program's first NCAA tournament and missed the NCAA Super Regionals by just one run. That team likely wouldn’t have missed that stage, however, if it had scored more than two runs across its first 25 innings at the NCAA tournament.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA.—The optimism was unbridled after Duke upset No. 9 Iowa more than three months ago. Sure, the Hawkeyes were coming off of a COVID pause, but their stars had still combined for 43 points and didn’t look too out-of-place.

Duke baseball 2022 season preview

(02/18/22 3:48am)

As Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby said, all that you can do in winter is “stare out the window and wait for spring.” The calendar may still say winter, but baseball is back, and this Duke team has a lot to be excited about this season. The Blue Devils will have to replace the offense of Michael Rothenberg, Ethan Murray, Joey Loperfido and Peter Matt, but they return Chris Crabtree, RJ Schreck and Graham Pauley, the last player in that list being someone who head coach Chris Pollard praised in the team’s preseason media day. On the bump, Jack Carey has gone on to pro ball and Henry Williams will miss the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but it is likely that Cooper Stinson will once again be the Friday starter with last year’s closer Marcus Johnson and sophomore Luke Fox likely rounding out the weekend trio. Additionally, the freshman class for this year is loaded, checking in at ninth in the national recruiting rankings. -Jake Piazza
