Dickson, who was an All-American in his playing days at Rowan, is now 200-80 in seven years with the Profs, which includs two NJAC titles, one Regional championship and four appearances in the NCAA Regionals. 

Anthony Schooley had four hits on the day, and Pat Defeciani had three, while lefthander Eli Atiya remained unbeaten and picked up his sixth victory as he struck out four. Schooley was 4-for-6 with two runs and two RBI, while Ryan Murphy, Eric DiDomenico and Chris Curcio contributed two RBI each. 

The Profs scored at least one run in all but three innings, and built up a 10-0 lead by the seventh inning. Ryan Mostrangeli started things off in the first, with a single that drove in Ryan Murphy. Rowan then scored three in the second, led by a two-run home run from Chris Curcio, his second of the year, that brought in Hunter Wroniuk. Murphy finished the scoring with a single to score Nick Fazio. 

After hitting a double in the third, Schooley eventually advanced and stole home, while Fazio reached base on an error that allowed Curcio to score to build the lead to 6-0. 

Eric DiDomenico hit a two-run homer of his own in the fourth, bringing in Schooley, which was his sixth round-tripper of the season. Schooley connected on his second double of the day in the seventh to score Defeciani and Murphy and give Rowan a 10-0 lead. 

TCNJ tallied all of its runs in the seventh with three off Atiya and one off of reliever David Levin. But the Profs shut them down the rest of the way, while scoring one more in the eighth inning when Murphy hit a sacrifice fly to bring home Fazio. 

The Profs return home for a doubleheader against Ramapo on Saturday, with the first pitch at 11:30 a.m. Rowan is also scheduled to play TCNJ in a single game on Monday, in a makeup game from Thursday.
