Hofstra Quidditch Club hosted the final Big Apple Quidditch Conference tournament of the season on Saturday, April 30th, hosting seven teams including Stony Brook, Macaulay Honors College, and NYU on the Hofstra Fitness Center Field. The Flying Dutchmen were unable to secure a win on the weekend, going 0-3, dropping three nail-biting contests.
Hofstra Club Baseball took on NYU on Sunday, April 24th. Starting pitcher Justin Cusano went two innings, allowing zero runs before handing over the game to the relief pitchers. Brian Quadrino had a grand slam and two doubles to back the explosive offense of the Pride. Ben Lawlor was a home run short of the cycle, hitting two doubles, a triple, and a single. The offense carried the day for the Pride, with every starter recording a hit in a 20- 4 victory.
The Pride followed up that victory by splitting a doubleheader with Sacred Heart on Saturday, April 30th. In Hofstra's 8-0 win, P.J. Potter went 7 innings and allowed no earned runs. Ben Lawlor, Brian Quadrino, John Bopp and Steve Locorriere all recorded extra base hits.
