It took 72 games for 2014 Washington alum Walker Breard to achieve triple digit hits for his collegiate career. The junior first baseman for the Cornell College Rams (2-6) recorded his 100th hit in last Sunday’s 13-3 loss to the Webster University Gorlacks (8-3). The milestone came on a single in the sixth inning.
