Spartans Dedicate New Mather Park Scoreboard, Split DH with Wittenberg to Close Regular Season

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Case Western Reserve University softball team dedicated its brand new Mather Park scoreboard and split a doubleheader with Wittenberg University on Sunday afternoon. The Spartans won the opener, 12-1 in five innings, but lost a late lead in game two, eventually falling 4-3.

The Spartans, ranked sixth in the latest NCAA Division III Central Region rankings, move to 26-15 overall with the split and 18-8 in 26 games since returning from their annual spring break trip in Florida. The 26 victories are the second-highest total in program history, moving past the 1999 squad (25-9) and trailing only the 2001 team (31-10).

With the split, the Tigers stand at 23-17.

Prior to Sunday's doubleheader, the program dedicated its scoreboard made possible through a gift from the Flora Stone Mather Alumnae Association. Additionally, Sunday served as Spartan Softball Alumni Day with plenty of former players on-hand.

In the opener, the Spartans came out with a vengeance and scored five runs in the first inning on four hits and two Wittenberg errors. Highlighting the inning was a two-run double off the bat of sophomore catcher Amy Taylor<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/taylor%20amy%2018wv> (Brier, Wash./Inglemoor), scoring freshman second baseman Molly O'Brien<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/o-brien%20molly%20x4y7> (Northbrook, Ill./Loyola) and sophomore shortstop Makenzie Lein<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/lein%20mackenzie%20x40l> (Petersburg, Mich./Ida).

In the top of the second, the Tigers manufactured a single tally off Spartan freshman starter Rebecca Taylor<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/taylor%20rebecca%208w8k> (Greensburg, Pa./Greater Latrobe) and put runners on first and third with two outs. However, Taylor induced a pop-up to get out of the jam.

Riding the wave of offensive momentum, the Spartans tacked on three more in the bottom of the second. Freshman rightfielder Gena Roberts<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/roberts%20gena%20ndjd> (Miami, Fla./Palmer-Trinity) laced an RBI double to the left centerfield wall. The hit gave her 54 this season, breaking the Spartan single-season record set last spring. Roberts then came around to score when senior first baseman/designated player Lauren Wolz<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/wolz%20lauren%20c4fu> (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) added to her school record career homerun total with a two-run shot over the right centerfield fence. Wolz owns the CWRU career records for hits (170), homeruns (28) and runs batted-in (127).

The score remained 8-1 until the bottom of the fourth when the hosts added four runs on four hits. The big hit came on a two-run triple down the right field line off the bat of sophomore leftfielder Katherine Seo<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/seo%20katherine%201m62> (Salt Lake City, Utah/Olympus). Senior designated player Ianna Wasser<http://athletics.case.edu/sports/sball/2011-12/bios/wasser%20ianna%20khk8> (Warwick, R.I./Toll Gate) also had an RBI single earlier in the frame and O'Brien hit a sacrifice fly that scored Seo.

For the game, Wasser went 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored, while Amy Taylor went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI. Of note, Lein was also 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored.

On the mound, Rebecca Taylor improved to 20-10, logging all five innings for her 24th complete game of the spring. The right-hander allowed one run on four hits, striking out three and walking three.

In the nightcap, Case jumped out once again to an early 3-0 lead via a three-run double to right center by Amy Taylor.

The score remained 3-0 in favor of Case until the top of the third when Wittenberg sliced the hosts' advantage to one (3-2). Carly Cribbs hit an RBI double to right center and the Tigers took advantage of a Case error for the second run.

In the top of the sixth, the Tigers threatened to knot the score as Laura Rose doubled down the left field line and advanced to third on a wild pitch. However, Rebecca Taylor helped her own cause snagging a line drive off the bat of Kaitie Harrison that was headed for center field, preserving the one-run Case advantage.

But down to their last strike in the seventh, the Tigers rallied for two runs when Cribbs lined a two-run homer to dead centerfield.

Taylor (20-11) took the loss on the mound in her 25th complete game, allowing three earned run on eight hits with three strikeouts and two walks.

Offensively, Seo and Amy Taylor were each 1-for-3.

Wittenberg's Rachel Ross kept the Spartan bats in-check through seven innings with a pair of strikeouts.

The Spartans now hope to hear their name called for an 

MAC ANNOUNCES FOUR YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION WITH MOBILE BOWL PARTNER THE GODADDY.COM BOWL THROUGH 2017
MAC vs. Sun Belt matchup continues through 2017 football bowl season.


Cleveland, Ohio – The Mid-American Conference announced today a new four-year contract extension with long-time Mobile, Alabama bowl partner, the GoDaddy.com Bowl, through the 2017 football season.

“We are extremely happy to extend our long-established and successful bowl partnership with the GoDaddy.com Bowl and the city of Mobile,” said Dr. Jon Steinbrecher, MAC Commissioner. “Our membership, most importantly our student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans, continually enjoy an outstanding experience with the bowl festivities and the hospitality provided by the GoDaddy.com Bowl, President Jerry Silverstein and the entire city of Mobile.”

A bowl partner with the MAC since 2001, the Mobile-based bowl was originally named the GMAC Bowl for nine years (2001-2009) before current bowl sponsor GoDaddy.com joined for the 2010 football season. GoDaddy.com has been bowl sponsor for the last two years (2010-11).



"Our relationships with both conferences continue to grow and mature and we are pleased to have them continue to be a part of our game. The MAC has been associated with our game for 12 years and the Sun Belt for three years. We have had many memorable games as evidenced by the TV ratings, our title sponsorship and games that have become instant classics on ESPN," said Jerry Silverstein, GoDaddy.com Bowl President.



"This game produced the 10th most memorable game in college football history. Fans, student athletes, alumni, and coaches continue to rave about their experience in Mobile. The city continues to support all of the events leading up to the game itself. Without the great support we receive from of the City of Mobile, the County, our title sponsor, GoDaddy.com and these two conferences, hosting these events would not be possible."
New to the partnership between the MAC and the GoDaddy.com Bowl will be an internship for the city of Mobile. This opportunity will be provided for one student from the MAC who has a career interest in city government or urban development to work with the city of Mobile beginning in 2013.

The MAC has an 8-3 record in 11 bowl games in Mobile, Ala. Last year, Northern Illinois defeated Arkansas State, 38-20 on Jan. 8, 2012, to win the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

Historic Softball Season Comes to an End

Wooster, Ohio – The record-setting season for the Oberlin College softball team came to an end on Sunday afternoon as the Yeowomen fell to the College of Wooster 6-1 and 6-3.

Despite today’s setbacks, Oberlin still had its most successful season in school history, setting the single-season wins record (14) and conference wins record (4). Among the numerous school records that were broken, Oberlin nearly had 100 more hits this season (327) compared to the old school record of 232. Freshman Katie Pieplow also set the single-season record for batting average as she finished at .421 to top Julia Chauvin’s mark of .411 that was set in 2010.

In both games today, however, the Yeowomen found themselves down early on and couldn’t find a way to get their offense going until the seventh inning of each game.

2012 Softball Team Photo 

In the lid-lifter, the Scots scored in each of the first four innings to lead 6-0. Oberlin finally got on the board in the seventh as three straight singles to start the inning by Pieplow, Kristen Dix and Katie Baldonieri loaded the bases with nobody out. Pieplow would then score on a passed ball, but that was all the Yeowomen could push across.

In game two things were very nip-and-tuck in the early going as the Scots were clinging to a 1-0 lead through four innings, before erupting with five runs in the fifth.

Once again, Oberlin tried to fight back in the top of seventh and they did so by scoring three runs but it wasn’t quite enough. Pieplow started the rally with a double to right field and would then score Baldonieri’s double to the gap in left center. Cheryl Lindsly sent the Yeowomen’s second run across the dish on a sac fly to center and then Paris Gravley did the same with a sac fly to right.

For the year the Yeowomen, who finished at 14-26 and 4-12 in the NCAC, batted an even .300 – marking the highest average in school history.

The Yeowomen will be saying goodbye to their senior class of Baldonieri, Dix and Kristine Kuchta, but will return their top three hitters in Pieplow, Emily King and Jennifer Goldsmith in 2013.
