With the year that Johns Hopkins had in football this past season, upsetting two undefeated teams on the road en route to an unprecedented trip to the national quarterfinals, you'd think it was hard for the Blue Jays to top that.

Sam Eagleson had six interceptions, and Sam Wernick was third on the team in receiving yards. It would be doubly tough to top based on their individual accomplishments on the football field.

Except they have. Eagleson was named a D3baseball.com All-American thanks to his 11-0 record and 2.45 ERA. And Wernick is second on the team in stolen bases and runs his routes cutting off balls in the outfield alleys.

The sophomore duo has had a big hand in getting the Blue Jays to Appleton, where they will play for the Division III baseball championship. Full story.
