Mason Feole, Baseball: 

The UConn baseball team’s ace returned to his expected form in a 2-1 win over Houston in the first conference game of the year. Feole threw seven strong innings with eight strikeouts and zero earned runs, but he did walk five batters in the process.  

Until this start, Feole had struggled posting just seven combined strikeouts to go alongside a 5.56 ERA. Feole has walked at least three batters in all four of his starts this season. The start on Friday alone dropped his ERA two full runs to 3.44.  

Napheesa Collier, Women’s Basketball: 

To kick off the NCAA Tournament, Collier and the Huskies beat 15-seed Towson in a 110-61 blowout victory. In 32 minutes of action, Collier put up 23 points to go along with 14 rebounds, four block, four assists and two steals. Collier earned her 20th double-double of the year in 34 games played.  

Olivia Miles, Women’s Lacrosse: 

Despite losing all three games over break, Miles put up consistent performances across all three contests. Miles scored nine times and dished out two assists across the three games, leaving her with 17 goals, the second most on the team. She is on pace to score 32 goals this season, which would shatter her career high of 24.  

Devon McShane, Men’s Track and Field: 

The sophomore earned his first career victory with a pole vault of 4.74 meters. This was his first outdoor vault as a Husky. Throughout the season, McShane has steadily increased his vault starting at 4.6 meters and working his way up to his highest of 4.74 meters in the UNF Spring Invitational in Jacksonville.  

Emma Chee, Women’s Track and Field: 

The freshman from Washington brought home another first place finish with her 3.82-meter pole vault at the UCF Invite. During indoor season, she was able to build up to a 3.90 meter vault in the ECAC Championships earlier this month.
