Athletics

* Wichita State Takes Game Three, 1-0

The University of Evansville softball team fell 1-0 in today’s the series finale against Wichita State. The loss drops the Aces to 11-26 on the season, falling to 4-11 in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Sophomore Katie Sears led the Aces at the plate, accounting for half of the Aces’ hits with a 3-for-4 performance in the batter’s box. Freshman Victoria Dellorto and seniors Amy Gaertner and Maggie Little each ended the day with a hit as well.
Junior Sarah Patterson (6-13) took the loss in the circle, scattering five hits and striking out three batters in the complete-game effort.

The Aces will return to action on Tuesday, traveling to Carbondale, Ill., for a midweek league doubleheader against Southern Illinois.

The Aces threatened in the bottom of the second, as Gaertner led off the inning with a single to left center before junior Kendall  Kautz reached base on a Shocker fielding error. Sophomore Niki Rahming moved the runners to second and third with an infield groundout before freshman Lauren Lum worked a full-count walk to load the bases. With one out on the board, freshman pinch-hitter Alli Nolan blasted a frozen rope right at the second baseman, but the line drive was caught and Lum was picked off in the double play, ending the inning with the game still tied at 0-0.

The Aces put pressure on Wichita State again in the bottom of the third, as Dellorto and Sears led off the bottom of the third with back-to-back doubles before moving to second and third on a sacrifice bunt by junior Tamara Robey. A strikeout brought Gaertner to the plate with two outs on the board, but Wichita State easily fielded a groundball to make the play at first and end the threat.

Wichita State took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth, as Brianne Bond led off the inning with a double down the left field line. Holly Eckert, who entered as a pinch runner for Bond, advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt before scoring on a long sac fly by Danika Miller.

A hit and a pair of walks gave the Shockers bases loaded with one out in the top of the sixth, but UE’s defense got out of the jam unharmed as starter Sarah Patterson forced a pair of infield flyouts to end the inning.

A two-out single by Sears in the bottom of the seventh looked like it could spark a comeback rally, but Wichita State reliever Sloan Anderson secured the win and notched her second save of the weekend with a flyout to end the game.
 

* Women's Golf Takes 14th At IU

After a single round of 18 holes, the University of Evansville women’s golf team placed 14th at the IU Golf Course on Sunday afternoon.

Lauren Ellerman tied for 44th place after shooting an 80.  Two strokes behind her were Sydney Skiles and Cathy Doyle, who each shot an 82 to tie for 57th. 

Dana Hayden came in a tie for 69th with an 84 while Alyssa Key carded an 87.  Two Aces shot as singles including Kelly Lamarche, who notched an 84 and Chelsea Zusan who finished with a 91.

Host Indiana finished with a 298 en route to a seven-shot win over Ball State, who notched a 305.  Eastern Michigan was third with a 306 while Kansas State was just behind with a 307.

Kristtini Cain of IU took medalist honors following a three-hole playoff. 

Next Monday and Tuesday, UE will wrap up the season in Terre Haute at the MVC Championships.
 

* Wichita State Tops Aces, 14-9, In Sunday Slugfest

Combining for 25 runs, 28 hits, eight doubles, and five home runs, the visiting Wichita State Shockers prevented a series sweep, as the University of Evansville baseball team fell, 14-9, Sunday afternoon in a slugfest at Braun Stadium. The Aces finished the weekend with a 2-1 series win over the Shockers, 22-14 overall record and 6-6 mark in the Missouri Valley Conference.

In a back-and-forth game, consisting of four lead changes and two mid-game tied scores, Wichita State (22-17, 5-4 MVC) strung together 10 of their 20 hits in the final three innings for 10 unanswered runs. The Shockers scored five runs in both the seventh and eighth innings after trailing, 9-4, to capture the win.

Junior reliever Josh Biggs (2-1) took the loss for Evansville, allowing five runs, five hits, and struck out two in one and a third innings. Starter Kyle Freeland pitched into the seventh inning, being credited to eight runs, 12 hits, two walks, and five strikeouts, before Jake Naumann and Biggs came out of the bullpen in the inning. Zach Taylor tossed a scoreless ninth, allowing one hit in his 82nd career appearance, which moves him into second place all-time at UE.

With a strong wind blowing out to left field the entire game, Wichita State scored two quick runs on back-to-back first-pitch home runs by Casey Gillaspie and Micah Green in the second inning. However Evansville quickly responded with four runs in the bottom half of the frame on Trentt Copeland’s grand slam over the left field wall.

Scoring one run in both the fourth and fifth innings, the Shockers tied the score, 4-4, before the Aces exploded for four more runs in the bottom of the fifth. Kevin Kaczmarski and Chris Pearson led off the inning with back-to-back singles, and Kaczmarski crossed the plate on reliever A.J. Ladwig’s wild pitch. With two outs, Andy Lasher drove home Pearson, and the inning continued when the Shockers overthrew first on a dropped third strike that would have ended the side, resulting in a run. Eric Stamets capped the inning with an RBI single, giving UE an 8-4 lead.

Freshman Kyle Pollock’s leadoff home run in the sixth made it 9-4, but UE was not in the clear, as Wichita States’ bats’ came alive in the seventh and eighth innings.

T.J. McGreevy (1-2) earned the win, throwing the final three and a third innings, allowing just one hit. Starter Albert Minnis made it through three frames before being relieved, allowing four runs, one hit, three walks, and struck out one.
Leading UE’s offense, Pollock and Copeland both went 2-for-5 on the day as the Aces combined for eight hits total. Copeland’s four RBI on his second home run of the season marked a team-high.

The Aces will step out of Valley play for five straight games, welcoming SIU Edwardsville to Braun Stadium Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. UE will also host Dayton for three games next weekend and Murray State in the following midweek matchup.

 

* UE Tennis Falls In Hard-Fought Match

For the fourth time in five MVC matches, Evansville (11-7, 2-3 MVC) took doubles as Dora Kotsiou and Natasha James and Aleks Dzakula along with Jessica Raatz each took 8-6 victories.  Emily Richardson and Kelsey Costales fell by an 8-6 margin in their doubles effort.

Singles proved to be a tougher task for UE as Dzakula was the lone winner, taking down Klavdija Rebol, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.  Two tough points went Drake’s (20-5, 4-1 MVC) way as Gabriela Demos and Ali Patterson took three-set points.  Demos topped James, 6-2, 2-6, 7-6, while Patterson defeated Gaby Fifer, 6-4, 6-7, 6-4.

Manca Krizman earned the win in flight one over Kotsiou, 6-1, 6-0 while Mina Milovic fell in the four slot to Nell Boyd, 6-2, 6-2.  At the sixth spot, Costales was defeated by Amanda Aragon, 6-2, 6-3.
