The Eagles will be saying farewell to Seniors Matt Burke and Justin Katz. Burke, who made the team as pitcher last year, has been the starting left fielder for the Eagles, enjoying a breakout performance against SUNY Albany. Katz leaves the Eagles as one of its most senior members. A member since his freshman year, Katz has served as a mentor and role model for the younger members on the team. Both seniors will be greatly missed.
