May 30, 2019 - Mount St. Mary's senior Patrick Causa has been named the team most valuable player, announced today by head coach Scott Thomson.
Causa had one of the best seasons in Mount history to earn Northeast Conference Player of the Year and First Team All-NEC honors. The senior hit .402, which is currently 13th in the nation, with 12 doubles, 12 home runs, 49 runs scored and 39 RBI this season.
