UWF Softball Slated for Rematch Against Shorter in GSC Tournament

UWF Softball Slated for Rematch Against Shorter in GSC Tournament

first_imgLIVE VIDEO | LIVE STATSPENSACOLA, Fla. – With a remarkable regular season behind it, the University of West Florida softball team enters the Gulf South Conference Tournament as the 3-seed with a game against 6-seed Shorter scheduled for Thursday. The game will begin at 10 a.m. and will feature live stats and a live video broadcast, put on by the GSC. With a win, UWF (37-13, 23-10 GSC) would play No. 2 Valdosta State on Thursday afternoon. West Florida’s 37 regular-season wins are its most since 2010, while the Argos’ 23 conference victories are their most since its 60-6 season in 2005. UWF added three players to the All-Gulf South Conference teams on Tuesday, in Kalyn Chapman, Meghan Toney and Rhiannon Sassman. This is the first time UWF has had three all-conference players in the same season since 2010. Chapman ranked in the top five in the GSC in wins (19), opponent batting average (.208), innings pitched (148.1), and strikeouts (153). She was the only player to earn a spot on the all-conference team twice this year, making the list as both a pitcher and a designated player. Toney led all second basemen in the GSC with 10 doubles and 49 runs scored. She recorded 15 multi-hit games, reached base in 44 of her 50 games and proved herself as one of the top defenders in the GSC over the year. Sassman’s 45 RBIs are the most for a UWF batter since 2010, and her .350 batting average is the highest for a freshman in UWF history. She is the only player in the league to be named GSC Player of the Week twice this season.Scouting Shorter UWF enters the 2016 GSC Softball Tournament as the No. 3 seed and will face 6-seed Shorter on Thursday. A win on Thursday morning will send UWF to a second-round game against Valdosta State at 3 p.m. that day. West Florida has been one of the best teams in GSC Tournament history, with the fourth-most wins (66), trips to the conference finals (6) and titles (3), with the last coming in 2005. UWF went 1-2 against Shorter last weekend and are 8-7 this season against teams in the field, which includes a sweep over then-No. 18 Valdosta State.All-GSC Honors The Turnaround The 2016 UWF softball team has improved its record tremendously since last year, from 19-30 to 37-13. West Florida is coming off a 16-game winning streak and picked up 18 wins in its last 21 games of the season (.857). The Argonauts have posted a 17.5 game improvement so far, which ranks as the 15th-best single-season turnaround in Division II history. UWF has improved in every facet of the game since last year. The pitching staff has been especially sharp, as the team’s ERA has dropped from 3.57 to 2.37 and opponents’ batting average has dropped 26 points. The offense has also seen notable improvement. The team is hitting .313 with a .425 slugging percentage through its first 50 games, compared to a .263 average and a .347 slugging percentage in 2015. West Florida started to gain national attention following the weekend sweep over No. 18 Valdosta State on 2/27-28, and after a weekend sweep over No. 21 Delta State on 4/16-17. UWF earned a spot in the NFCA Top 25, coming in at 21. UWF is already in the record books for its improvement from 2004 to 2005. West Florida won 36 games in ’04 before adding 24 more wins in 2005.The GSC Tournament West Florida ranked fifth in the NCAA’s final South Region rankings before the NCAA Tournament field is decided next Monday. As things stand right now, the Argonauts are in line to travel to Florence, Alabama, for a four-team regional with North Alabama, Alabama Huntsville and Florida Tech, hosted by UNA. UWF earned its highest ranking of the year at No. 21 in the NFCA Top 25 poll that came out after the sweep over Delta State. The Argos picked up 14 points in the most recent NFCA poll, good for 27th nationally.  Print Friendly Version Niki Cook provides a threat at the top of the order, as the sophomore ranks second in the league in stolen bases (32) and fourth in on-base percentage (.497).  Kameron Carter is third in the conference with 12 home runs and is seventh with a .681 slugging percentage. Payton Lippert has done most of the work in the circle for the Hawks, picking up 16 wins and holding opponents to a .239 batting average. Lippert most recently was named the GSC’s Freshman of the Week for her work against UWF last weekend. Shorter has the top relief ace in the conference, in Kalei Kimbrell. Kimbrell has 10 saves on the season – by far the most in the GSC – with a 1.95 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 50.1 innings pitched.In the Pollslast_img read more

A great day for the club – Johnson

A great day for the club – Johnson

first_imgCity’s last seven games against the Royals had ended in defeat but that run was ended in emphatic fashion by Flint’s 84th-minutes strike in Berkshire.For Johnson it brought back memories of City’s last victory at the Madejski, when he was a player in February 2009, as the supporters stuck around after the final whistle bellowing out the ‘Bounce around the ground’ chant.Speaking on BCTV, Johnson said: “It was a great day for us. The energy, application and effort from the players was top notch.“It was a really difficult game because of the way Reading play their football but we worked hard, pressing and applying pressure high up the pitch.“It was great that we had an international break coming into this one as it gave us the time to prepare for the challenge.“We rode our luck at times and I thought Frankie Fielding was fantastic for us, but we had our chances too. If Pato (Jamie Paterson) had stuck his chance away then maybe we could have gone on to win by a couple.“The fans were brilliant and it was great to see they were part of the win as well.”last_img read more

Kendall prevails at Princeton in Northstar IMCA Mod Tour opener

Kendall prevails at Princeton in Northstar IMCA Mod Tour opener

first_imgPRINCETON, Minn. (Aug. 10) – A driver who’s seen some wins get away from him got a big one Friday at Princeton Speedway.Billy Kendall led all 30 laps of the Northstar IMCA Modified Tour lidlifter, beating Brandon Becken­dorf in the race for the $1,000 checkers and 2019 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot berth.“It feels good,” Kendall said following his first Princeton victory of the season. “We’ve been strug­gling to get wins this season and it seems like we’ve had a lot of seconds. The car was tight in the heat but it was perfect on the berm in the feature.”Kendall drew the outside row one start and quickly jumped out to a big lead. He’d maneuvered through and around lapped traffic before almost getting too high and opening the door for Larry Zeller with six circuits to go.After righting the ship, Kendall outran the hard-charging Brandon Beckendorf for the win. Zeller, 12th starting Clint Hatlestad and Shawn Fletcher completed the top five.Beckendorf, currently runner-up in the national point standings, had started seventh.“He was one of the guys I was worried about. Brandon has been fast everywhere,” Kendall said, “and Clint has been super fast at Princeton.”Jason Vejtruba topped the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature, ahead of Dustin Nelson and Chris VanMil.Feature ResultsModifieds – 1.
