Freshman Feltner shines to earn 

his first Walsh Jesuit Baseball win

Mockbee and Brown also sharp, Miletti belts 3rd HR of year

CUYAHOGA FALLS, April 10: Behind another stellar outing from outstanding Freshman RHP Ryan Feltner, the Walsh Jesuit Baseball team swept its second consecutive North Coast League series with a 4-1 win over visiting Cleveland Benedictine. Feltner hurled five quality innings allowing three hits and an unearned run, striking out six. Junior LHP Joe Mockbee came on to throw a perfect 6th in dominant fashion, striking out two, while Junior Cassidy Brown earned his 4th save of the year in the 7th, also striking out two. 

Offensively, the Warriors were led by Senior Ohio Wesleyan recruit Drew Miletti who hit is 3rd HR of the year, a towering blast in the first. Junior Cassidy Brown broke up a tie game to give the Warriors the lead for good in the 5th with an RBI double, scoring Senior Slippery Rock recruit Graeme Frye. Senior Ohio Northern recruit Zack Leonatti followed Brown with his second hit of the day (a single, adding to a double off of the center field wall earlier in the game), and Senior Rollins College brought them both in with a double to close out the scoring. Sophomore Colton Carney also had a hit in the game, while Freshman Blake Jenkins continued to provide quality at bats.

With the win, the Maroon and Gold improve to 8-1 on the year, 4-0 in NCL play.

Yeowomen Fall at Wooster

Wooster, Ohio – The Oberlin College women’s lacrosse team capped of their six-game road trip by falling to the College of Wooster Fighting Scots, 18-8, on Tuesday evening.

The Yeowomen were led by Ilssya Meyer as she scored three times to run her season total up to 29 on the year. Rookie Bronwen Schumacher added two goals, marking the third straight game she has scored twice as she now as 12 goals on the year. She also added a team-high four draw controls.

Oberlin kept things close in the early going and scored the game’s first goal as rookie Kate Hanick finished off a pass from Meyer just moments in for her team-leading 30th goal of the year. The Scots answered with three straight scores, but Schumacher would make it a 3-2 game at the 22:13 mark after netting her first goal of the day with an assist coming from Lori Sako.

Unfortunately, the Scots were able to gain control of the game, scoring eight of the next nine goals to go up 11-3 at the break. Meyer sandwiched in the lone Oberlin score during the Scots’ run with 13:56 left in the half. Schumacher picked up the assist on the play.

Oberlin (8-2, 0-2 NCAC) started the second session with a pair of goals to try and get back in it. Jodi Helsel deposited the first one and then Schumacher added another as Phoebe Hammer dished out the helper on the finish. 

Wooster (8-3, 1-1 NCAC) responded with four straight goals to effectively put the game out of reach. Oberlin added three goals down the stretch, but it was too little too late. Sarah Andrews, who scooped up a team-high five ground balls, added one while Meyer recorded the other two.

Madeleine O’Meara played all 60 minutes in goal and made eight saves.

Oberlin returns home to host Mount St. Joes on Thursday at 5 p.m.
