After a stellar fall season for Rutgers- Camden athletics, the spring season is here. Teams are ready to blossom and make themselves known this spring season. As the schedules get underway, let’s take a look at how each team stacks up as they enter the regular season:

Baseball:

The Rutgers- Camden baseball team comes off a record-breaking 2014 campaign looking to take the next step this season. The Scarlet Raptors finished 2014 with a 30-13-1 season, winning their first NJAC regular season title and earning the program’s first NCAA tournament bid.

Golf:

The Rutgers- Camden golf team is coming off a solid fall campaign winning one of their 6 tournaments that they were entered in and look to get even better in the spring when the weather is warm. What was most impressive was their ability to always be in contention as a team, finishing in the top five in four of the six tournaments. Kevin Sarlo and Nick Baird led the way for the Scarlet Raptors in the fall with shooting averages of 77 and 82 respectively. They both look to help lead the team to more success this spring season.

Outdoor Track:

The Rutgers- Camden outdoor Track and Field experienced great success last season and looks to have continued success this spring season. The Scarlet Raptors standout performers Matt Curtis, who earned All- American honors, and Joe Meehan, the team’s lone representative at the ECAC championships last season, will be sorely missed as they have graduated. However, the team looks forward to its new shining stars like Sophomore Trey Gilliard and others who look to fill the void and continue the team’s overall success. The team looks to get out of the gates fast at their first meet at the Stockton Invitational on March 21.

Tennis:

The Rutgers- Camden Men’s tennis team consists of a roster of young but experienced players. Loaded mostly with sophomores and juniors, each player has experience playing at the collegiate level and look to take that experience a long way in the spring season. Lloyd Pearson, V led the Scarlet Raptors with a 3-2 record in the fall as the teams #1 singles player and looks to excel in the spring campaign. Drew Delongowski and Onkar Singh each posted 2-2 records in the fall, which were good for second on the team. They each look to take their game to another level this spring season. Overall, the Men’s Tennis team should fare well during the spring and compete for a champion in a tough conference.

Softball:

The Rutgers- Camden softball team had an up- and-down year in 2014, finishing 18-16-1 and 9-9 in conference play. They’re only shot at the NCAA tournament was to win their postseason conference tournament. After winning the first game over William Patterson 5-4, they ended their season losing two in a row to Rowan and Montclair State University. This year, hope springs eternal, as new coaching duo Michelle and Mike Schlichtig look to usher in a new era for Rutgers- Camden softball. They return most of their starters from last season including lone Senior Krystine Rice and a core group of juniors consisting of OF Lindsay Day, 3B Katie Larson and the team’s ace on the mound, Brittany Scott. Along with the addition of some great incoming freshman and players who look to have greater roles on the team, the Lady Raptors appear primed for an amazing bounce back season in 2015.
