The Texas A&M Aggies have hit five home runs on Sunday night to break the school’s 25-year-old team season record. The Aggies have hit 130 on the season, beating the previous mark of 128 set in 1999.

With the Aggies playing the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns for the title in the NCAA College Station Regional at Blue Bell Park, Caden Sorrell, Braden Montgomery, Hayden Schott, Ali Camarillo and Gavin Grahovac have all belted homers.

Sorrell and Montgomery went deep in the fourth inning, Schott hit one in the fifth, Camarillo in the seventh and Grahovac in the ninth. Montgomery has 27 for the year and Grahovac 22, which is an A&M freshman record.

Coming into the regional round of the NCAA tournament, the Aggies had hit 124 home runs as a team.

They didn’t hit any in an 8-0 victory over the Grambling Tigers on opening day Friday. They hit one on Saturday, by Sorrell, in a 4-2 victory over Texas.

With five against Louisiana, A&M now has 130 homers in 60 games. The 1999 squad that hit 128 featured Daylan Holt, who belted 34 that year for the school’s individual season record.

A&M is leading Louisiana 9-1 in the ninth inning. If the Aggies win, they advance to the Super Regional round next week.
