Arianna Beers, Sports Editor

Noah Rafsky, a second-year cybersecurity student and centerfielder for AACC Baseball, hit three runs in the Riverhawks 9-8 victory over CCBC Catonsville last week.

For this achievement, Rafsky is this week’s Campus Current player of the week.

The Riverhawks, who have an overall record of 11-25 and a conference record of 6-14, squeezed by CCBC Catonsville with a one run victory. Rafsky said he felt good during the game and stayed focus while he hit.

“I was just relaxed the whole game,” Rafsky said, “I just try to stay out of my head and be relaxed at the plate and try to have a good approach.

Rafsky has been playing baseball since he was four-years-old and attended Granite Baptist School before he became a Riverhawk.

Rafsky said he feels he excels best at stealing bases during games this season.

“I’m fast, I’m here to steal bases and that’s what I do best,” He said.

While Rafsky feels comfortable stealing bases, he said he’s been working on base running during practices recently.

“I try to work on my base running [at practice] because that’s my main thing, to try and get into a scoring position for my team and help them out in any way I can.” He said.

Rafsky said he also works on all different areas of baseball at practices, besides base running.

“I need to work on hitting, catching, and just everything,” he said. “And really taking reps, baseball’s all about taking reps, you need repetitions to become good and I think I need to work on everything every day.”

AACC Baseball plays their next game on April 20 against Allegany College of Maryland on “Skip” Brown Baseball Field at 12 p.m.
