Two former Augusta Orioles made splashes on the diamond for their college teams during games last week.

Dalton Wheat hit a solo home run during a big win by the Butler baseball team earlier last week. Wheat was an All-Leaguer as an Oriole.

Taylor Reichard, another standout former Oriole, was put on the National Fastpitch Coaches Association list of top recent collegiate performances. Reichard hit a grand slam for her Emporia State softball team Feb. 15 against Henderson State. Reichard was a All-League shortstop for the Orioles.
