It’s time for another addition of the Morning Heel! Today we have four articles for you- one about baseball, one about women’s lacrosse, a football interview and a basketball video to top it all off. While the football and basketball teams are done for the spring, there is still a lot to cheer for around Chapel Hill. The baseball team is taking on the No. 1 team in the country in Virginia, while women’s lacrosse had their senior day Saturday afternoon against Towson. Here are some links from around the web about those two events and more!
“Benton Moss allowed just three hits in 7.2 innings of work but Virginia made the most of them as the top-ranked Cavaliers beat North Carolina 3-1 Saturday afternoon at Davenport Field. Kenny Towns’ two-run homer in the third was the difference as Virginia clinched the series win behind Josh Sbroz, Connor Jones and Nick Howard. All nine Carolina starters had hits but the Tar Heels left nine men on base, including seven in the first three innings.
Virginia (33-6, 16-4 ACC) opened the scoring with a run in the first after Branden Cogswell led off the inning with a double down the line in right. Two batters later it was 1-0 as Daniel Pinero moved Cogswell to third with a sacrifice and Mike Papi drove him in with an RBI groundout.”
“North Carolina quarterback Bryn Renner had a successful sophomore and junior campaign leading the Tar Heels, but found himself in the unfortunate position of having his senior season ruined by poor play and a season ending injury. Now, Renner is in the position of being an underdog and one he seems to both recognize and embrace as he heads to the NFL Draft.
Among the topics he discusses include his game, his successes and challenges both on the field and through injury, why he believes he will be successful, and what he can bring to an NFL team. Also, he gives the perspective of what it was like to be in the midst of the Tar Heel football program through suspensions and sanctions of teammates around him, where the program goes from here and what it will take for them to get to the next level.”
