Spring Classic

ANGOLA, INDIANA -- Junior Rebecca Kapusta (Independence) earned medalist honors as the Baldwin-Wallace College women’s golf team captured the team title today (Friday, April 20, 2012) at the annual Trine (Ind.) University Spring Classic at the Zollner Golf Course.

The Yellow Jackets totaled 331 strokes to capture the team title on the par-72 and 5, 963-yard Zollner layout.  B-W finished 41 strokes ahead (372) of second place Hope (Mich.) College and 46 strokes ahead (377) of third place host Trine.

In team play (each team has five golfers and the top four scores count toward the team total), Kapusta led the way as she fired a career-low 77. She was followed by sophomore Miranda Cunningham (Dayton/Dayton Christian) who carded a round of 82 to finish tied for second individually.  Sophomore Emilee Woolf (Ravenna) fired a round of 83 to place fourth and junior Brooke Hamilton (Cleveland/St. Joseph’s Academy) carded a round of 89 to finish tied for  sixth. Sophomore Sarah Alred (Akron/Green) rounded out the team scoring with a round of 93.

Individually, sophomore Rebecca Jones (Hilliard/Darby) shot a round of 85.

The Yellow Jackets end the regular season at the 2012 Ohio Athletic Conference Championship Tournament hosted by Capital University on Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29 at the Foxfire Golf Club in Lockbourne. The winner of the OAC Tournament qualifies for the 2012 NCAA Division III National Championships hosted by Trine University

A year ago, the B-W women’s golf team fashioned an 83-18 overall record, won five tournament titles, including the 2011 OAC title, and placed 15th at the NCAA Division III National Tournament.  The Yellow Jackets have advanced to the Division III National Tournament three times during its 12-year existence.

Storm Stymied Offensively In Losses Vs. Wayne State

PAINESVILLE, OHIO – Lake Erie College(5-40, 2-26 GLIAC) was unable to generate offense, dropping a pair of home contests to Wayne State University (27-19, 19-9 GLIAC), 5-0, and 18-0 in five innings at Kiwanis Recreation Park in Painesville, Ohio.

The Storm face Wayne State again tomorrow in a doubleheader beginning at 1:00 p.m.  The game is also Senior Day with festivities beginning prior to first pitch. 

Dawn Ondercin


In game one, Lake Erie sophomore starter Dawn Ondercin (Sheffield, Ohio/Brookside) was done in by the long ball as the Warriors hit three homers in the game.  Wayne State got on the board with a two-run shot by first baseman Becca Ryan in the first added another pair in the second on a shot by Nikki Fulton.  Ondercin settled in and worked four scoreless frames before Ryan hit her second homer of the game for the final five run margin.

Ondercin allowed five runs on 12 hits with a pair of punch outs.

Lake Erie managed five hits in the opener with senior Megan Foley (Brunswick, Ohio/Brunswick) accounting for a pair. 

The Storm's best chance to score came in the first inning as senior Ali Heming (Cincinnati, Ohio/Turpin) and sophomore Jeniffer Gratz (Richwood, Ohio/North Union) each singled to lead off the inning.  They both advanced on a double steal with two outs but were stranded as Wayne State's Sam Cain struck out a pair to get out of the frame.

In game two, the Warriors got to senior Sam Ronde (Reynoldsburg, Ohio/Reynoldsburg) early with two runs in the first and six more in the second.  Wayne State added one more in the second off freshman relieverAmanda Anderson (Streetsboro, Ohio/Streetsboro). The Warriors kept pouring on with eight more runs in the third and one more in the fourth.

Wayne State had 20 hits in the game, all singles.  Lake Erie had two hits in game two as seniors Haley Rathge (Edon, Ohio/Napoleon) and Lindsey Pennell (Columbus, Ohio/Westland) each had base hits.
