WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -- Hunter Ridge banged out four hits and Terence Connelly
added three as UNCW stormed past visiting East Carolina, 10-3, in college baseball
action on Tuesday at Brooks Field.

The Seahawks improved 13-7 overall and 12-4 at home. The Pirates, meanwhile, dropped
to 11-9 on the season.

With his four hits, Ridge moved to within one of tying Jason Appel's UNCW career
record of 260 hits. Also chalking up multi-hit games were Michael Bass and Ryan
LaGrange, who also homered.

Tied at one-all in the third, LaGrange's third homer of the season, a three-run
blast to left center, gave UNCW a 4-1 lead it wouldn't surrender. Starter Blaze Tart (2-1) earned the win, allowing one run on four hits and a pair of walks in 5 and 2/3 innings. ECU starter Tyler Bolton (0-1) suffered his first lost of the season in his first career start.

Next up: The Seahawks continue their six-game homestand on Wednesday with a 6 p.m.
start against Charleston Southern.

How it happened: In the third, Ridge led off with a single, his second of four
singles on the game, and moved into scoring position following a walk to Corey Dick.
LaGrange followed with a homer on a two-strike breaking ball from Bolton to give the
Seahawks a 4-1 lead.

Inside the numbers: The Seahawk bullpen continued to shine as Jack Lane, Ricky
Holden, Kelly Secrest and Nick Monroe combined to allow two runs, unearned, on two
hits and a walk over 3 and 1/3 innings . Lane, Holden and Secrest each struck out
the first batter they faced . UNCW collected four two-out RBI's . With runners on,
ECU managed just one hit in 12 at bats . The Seahawks went 9-for-24 with runners on
base and advanced runners 16 times in 30 opportunities . UNCW also scored 5-of-6
runners from third . ECU landed just 2-of-9 leadoff hitters on base.

Notes: Michael Bass extended his hitting streak to 16 games and his one base streak
to 22 . He also swiped his 10th base in as many chances this season . Blaze Tart has
now won his last two starts and fashioned a 0.71 ERA over those two outings .
Terence Connelly also extended his hitting streak to seven games . UNCW snapped a
four-game losing streak to ECU at Brooks Field (last win in 2009).

WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– The 69th-ranked UNCW men’s tennis team made it 10 in a row at home with a convincing 7-0 non-conference victory over visiting Dartmouth Tuesday at the UNCW Courts.

The Seahawks, 11-4, have won 19 consecutive home matches spanning over to last season. Ivy League member Dartmouth, with former UNCW standout Alex Wetherell as an assistant coach, fell to 6-7 this spring.

UNCW has posted nine shutouts this season, including three in succession over Yale, Illinois State and Dartmouth.

“Dartmouth is a strong team that’s very well coached,” said UNCW skipper Mait DuBois. “They came out in doubles and really didn’t give an inch and managed their errors well. We had to earn it and were able to come up with some big points when we needed them.”

DuBois and his club took the doubles point for the 13th time this spring by sweeping all three matches for the early point. The No. 3 tandem of Santtu Leskinen and Kaue Pereira got things going with an 8-6 verdict over Michael Jacobs and Sam Todd. The No. 1 team of Kosta Blank and Chris Cooprider, ranked 18th nationally, then secured the point with an identical score over Xander Centenari and Brandon DeBot.

The Seahawks took all six singles matches to complete the shutout. Sophomore Zach Hublitz bageled Jacobs, 6-0, 6-0, at No. 6 to increase the score to 2-0 and Cooprider cruised past DeBot, 6-0, 6-3, at the No. 2 slot to hike the margin to 3-0.

Aita, ranked 33rd by the ITA, then clinched the match by trimming Centenari, 6-4, 6-3, at the top of the lineup. Sam Williams (No. 3), Kosta Blank (No. 4) and Kaue Pereira (No. 5) closed out the match for the Seahawks with singles victories.

DuBois said, “I was impressed with how well Dartmouth competed and how they managed their errors. Zach (Hublitz) came out really strong for us and put in a decisive performance as did Chris (Cooprider). To get a win over Dartmouth and dropping only one set is an accomplishment that we feel pretty good about.

“It was the first time in my career that I had to coach against one of my former players (Wetherell). He really does a great job and I’m very happy for his success. It was great to see him again, even if it was with another team. I know he will do extremely well in his coaching career.”

The Seahawks, who wrapped up a three-match home stand, travel to the Sunshine State for their next two matches, taking on South Florida on Mar. 29 in Tampa and UCF on Mar. 31 in Orlando.
