"In the opening round of the NCAA Division III regional playoff in May, Ross threw a complete game, four-hit shutout while striking out nine batters and walking just three.

Nick Dudukovich writes, "DePauw lost it’s next two games, which eliminated the team from postseason play. The Emory game would be Ross’ last appearance for the Tigers.

The text adds, "For his final season at DePauw, Ross went 8-1 with a 3.71 ERA. He garnered first-team all-North Coast Athletic Conference recognition, in addition to being named to the all-tournament team."
