In their first game after the Tucson Invitational in Tucson, AZ, the baseball team came out with a well-earned 9–8 win to mark their homecoming against John Carroll University in a high-scoring nail-biter.

When asked to comment on the media coverage, Gross gave a tempered response. “My focus is on making sure we meet the varied needs of the community, and that we actively...
