Malvern Prep opened its baseball season Saturday by sweeping a pair of visiting opponents from the Catholic League in a nonleague doubleheader.

Jake Mullan's RBI single in the sixth inning gave Malvern a 3-2 win over St. Joseph's Prep in the opener. His two-out hit drove in Clay Koniencki, who had led off with a double and moved to third on a wild pitch.

In the second game, Tim Quinn starred as the Friars defeated Archbishop Carroll, 3-1. Quinn allowed one earned run in four innings to get the win and went 2 for 2.

Boys' Basketball

Archbishop Carroll's Austin Tilghman, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound senior point guard, committed to play basketball at Monmouth.

In football, Tilghman, who transferred from St. Andrew's (Del.), was a standout running back.
