Under the direction of first-year Head Coach Joe Brooks, Gwynedd Mercy University navigated a road-heavy schedule to a 19-18 overall record…the Griffins’ highest win total in four season! Freshman outfielder Sam Junker (Ambler, Pa.) (2nd Team), junior pitcher Mitchell Bramsway (Temecula, Calif.) (1st Team), and senior second baseman Jake Martell (Levittown, Pa.) (1st Team), enjoyed All-AEC seasons in a year that was headlined by the performance of utility/pitcher Cooper Root (Runnemede, N.J.). The sophomore piled D3Baseball.com All-Region 5 Second Team and American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings All-Region 5 First Team selections on top of his All-AEC Fist Team recognition.
