College baseball fans throughout New England know all about the successes that Northeast-10 powers like Southern New Hampshire and Franklin Pierce have had for well over a decade, but Post is looking to spoil the dominant conference’s party and achieve more program firsts in 2023.
The Eagles are looking to build upon one of the winningest seasons in program history as they finished one victory short of their first-ever Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) championship and subsequent NCAA East Regional appearance last spring.
“We have a lot of returning players from a team that showed tremendous resiliency and basically had the championship come down to the last inning (against Wilmington [Del.] last May),” head coach Ray Skjold said. “That made for a special group, and I think they’re a little bit more battle-tested than they had been before.”
Post was not unlike many other programs in dealing with significant “newness” following canceled and shortened seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only did 2022 mark the first return to normalcy, but it was also Skjold’s first full season as coach.
