With a score of 7–5, Denison’s baseball team won its first North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament when they beat Wooster last spring. Players tell us about the moment they became champions.

“Being part of the first team in school history to win the conference championship was a feeling I will hold on to for the rest of my life. However, it would not have been possible without the culture that Coach Deegan and the players before us worked so hard to instill. Everyone who has played in this program had a part in the championship.”
—John Troll ’19

“As a team we work really hard every year pursuing our goals. To accomplish a goal like that and bring Denison its first baseball conference championship was truly a memory that will last a lifetime.”
—Will Krushena ’20

“It was unbelievable—just an unreal experience. A full team effort made it happen, and it is definitely something I will never forget.”
—Max Lahn ’21
