COLUMBUS --- Led by Walsh Jesuit alumna Katie Dull, Ohio State’s women’s volleyball team has jumped out to a quick 5-1 start. Dull leads the Buckeyes in four offensive categories.

The Bucks won their first five matches before going down in defeat to Kentucky in the finals of the Kentucky Classic Saturday. Dull had a team-high 16 points on 16 kills in the loss.

Tied in sets, 1-1, OSU got a key kill in the third set from Dull that made it 25-24, in favor of the Bucks. However, Kentucky came back to win 27-25 and then went on to win the third set. For her efforts, the Solon native was named to the All Tournament team.

Yellow Jackets look to go 2-0 for the 

first time since 2007 on Community 

Day in Finnie Stadium

BEREA – Baldwin-Wallace will try to open the season 2-0 for the first time since 2007 with a win at home Saturday night against Capital on Community Day.

Last year the Yellow Jackets were 0-2 after Week II and in 2008 were 1-1 so at least they are ahead of the game at 1-0 this year after Thursday’s win over Wooster. The last time the Jackets were a league contender was in 2007 when they finished 7-3 overall. A win over perennial upper-division teams like Capital are the pathway to becoming a serious contender in the Ohio Athletic Conference again.


GAME PREVIEW


The Yellow Jackets and Crusaders have been playing in the final week of the season, but the meeting was moved to the first league game this year so that B-W and John Carroll could make the Cuyahoga Gold Bowl Game, the college football championship of Cleveland, the last game every year.

Despite the Crusaders staying in contention and the Yellow Jackets lingering in mediocrity in recent years, this game historically was always a close battle throughout the first decade of this century.

Capital won by 10 points last year, B-W by 17 in 2008, Capital by one in 2007, Capital by 12 in 2006, Capital by 14 in 2005, and Capital by two in 2004.

Prior this century, B-W traditionally dominated the series. The two teams have met 41 times on the gridiron with B-W holding a 31-10 series lead.

The series first began in 1928 with the Capital Crusaders beating the Yellow Jackets 16-0. 
North Ridgeville native John McGraw

Offensively, the Yellow Jackets will come at the Crusaders. B-W has three “starting” running backs that get used interchangeably and sometimes in tandem and threesome in various formations, resembling more an ice hockey teams with three strong lines skating their regular shifts. Kyrell Crook, Parma’s Tim Miker and North Ridgeville’s John McGraw will see equal time and probably equal totes. 
Avon High alum Ryan O'Rourke

The Jackets have new weapons though this season. Quarterback Ryan O’Rourke from Avon threw three TD passes last week, including two to former Eagle and Slippery Rock teammate Brett Jensen. He has several others he’s been throwing two including defensive guys who also play offense some times such as Euclid native Devon Jennings.

Midview alumnus Josiah Holt could be joining St. Ignatius grad Kevin Johnson on kick returns this week.

Capital is led the senior quarterback Marty Assman, who was second team All-OAC last year.


Rocky River native Lindsey Mikuta's first career goal leads Jackets to win over Penn State Behrend

BEREA – Sophomore midfielder Lindsey Mikula (Rocky River) scored the match-winning goal in the third minute of overtime as the Baldwin-Wallace College women’s soccer team defeated host Penn State Behrend, 2-1 in overtime, today (Sunday, September 5, 2010) in its final game at the PSB Herb Lauffler Tournament in Erie, Pennsylvania.  The goal broke a stalement since a 1-1 tie in the 18th minute and was Mikula's first career goal as a Yellow Jacket.
