LUTES CLOSES OUT SEASON WITH  FASTPITCH SERIES WIN OVER RIVAL LOGGERS

The Pacific Lutheran University softball team wrapped up its 2018 season winning two of three games on Sunday, April 15, as they wrapped up Saturday’s second contest before finishing the weekend with another doubleheader. The Lutes finished with an overall record of 15-23, with an 10-18 record in conference play. The Loggers finished the season 10-24-1 overall, and 9-18 in conference play.

PLU took the resumed game 16-1 and game one 9-4 before dropping the season finale 6-5.

“We played well, and it was fun to watch us almost come back in that second game,” head coach Brandi Gordon Bennett said. “We had some great at bats, Marissa pitched a great final game and the players were having fun and getting fired up, which was cool to see.”

In continuing their Saturday contest, the Lutes boosted their 12-run lead with an additional run in the third with a ground out RBI. The Lutes then added a run in the fourth and fifth innings off Anna Lennox and Rebecca Sorensen’s bats, pushing the lead to 16-1. The game was then called after the Loggers failed to cut into the lead in the fifth.

The Lutes continued their dominance into the second game, taking advantage of a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly from Kathryn Hatlen to take an early 2-0 lead. The Loggers responded with a run in the third and two more in the fourth to take a 3-2 lead.

The Lutes quickly fought back in front with a three-run fourth, which was kicked off by Kathryn Hatlen single. The inning was capped off on a fielder’s-choice RBI from Anna Overland and a single from Elise Freund.

A solo-homer from the Loggers cut the Lute lead in half, but a three-run shot from Samantha Simundson pushed the Lutes ahead 8-4. Finally, Kathryn Hatlen sent another run home on an RBI single, as the Lutes secured the 9-4 victory.

An early RBI single from Kennedy Robillard gave the Lutes their first lead in game three, but the Loggers responded with five runs over the next three innings to take a commanding lead. Robillard, Simundson, and Lennox each provided an RBI in the sixth inning to pull the game close, but another UPS home-run pushed the lead back up to 2. In the bottom of the seventh, Delaney Salter delivered a leadoff homer to celebrate her birthday in style and bring the Lutes within a run again. After threatening to tie or take the lead by loading the bases with two outs, an infield pop-up ended the Lutes’ rally one run short at 6-5.

“The thing that stood out to me the most about this year was that, regardless of the situation, this team gave everything that they had in every inning and for every pitch,” Bennett said. “These players always put their Luteball family first, and I hope that our returners are hungry to come back and deal out some damage next year.”

For the Lutes’ three seniors, Anna Lennox, Jessica Alcomendas, and Marissa Miller, Sunday’s contests marked the final ones in their storied careers. In the midst of all of the celebration, four-year starting pitcher Miller welcomed her family onto the field where she had created many fond memories through the years.

“It feels great to be able to play here one last time,” Miller said. “I’ve had an incredible four years, and I’m really going to miss my teammates, as well as this whole experience.”

As her storybook Lute career ends its final chapter, Miller is already looking ahead to nurture the next generation of softball stars, some of whom may one day become Lutes themselves.

“I love helping out younger kids, and I’ll actually be getting back to teaching pitching lessons now that the season has ended,” Miller said. “I just love watching young women succeed in playing softball while helping them get there.”

For now, the Lutes 13 returners will take some time to rest before returning to the field to prepare for the 2019 season. – by Jake Bilyeu, PLU Sports

PLU’S HODKINSON NABS WEEKLY NWC TRACK HONORS

The Northwest Conference office released its men’s track and field weekly award winners on Monday with Pacific Lutheran University student-athlete Brad Hodkinson securing Track Athlete of the Week honors.

The junior secured the honor after blowing away the field in the 5,000-meters on Saturday, April 14, at the Jay Hammer Invitational hosted by Saint Martin’s University in Lacey. Hodkinson blew away the field, winning the race in a season-best time of 14 minutes, 55.23 seconds, finishing 25 seconds ahead of the runner-up finisher. Hodkinson, the defending NWC Runner of the Year and league champion in the 1,500-meters, 5,000-meters, and 10,000-meters, currently owns the fastest 5K time in the NWC by 15 seconds.

Hodkinson’s honor marks the fourth time a Lute has won NWC Track Athlete of the Week. Sprinter Carson Ketter claimed the honor on April 9 and March 19, while fellow distance standout Kyle Rapacz secured the league award on March 5.

The Lutes open day one of the 2018 NWC Championships on Friday in McMinnville, Ore.

LOGGERS TOO MUCH FOR  LUTES IN WOMEN’S TENNIS

The Puget Sound women’s tennis team closed out its 2018 Northwest Conference schedule with a convincing 6-3 home win against Pacific Lutheran Friday, April 13. The Loggers improved to 5-6 overall, and 4-5 in the NWC.

Bridget Myers won at No. 2 singles (6-0, 7-5) for the Loggers, while Nicole Bouche won at No. 3 singles (7-6, 6-0). Puget Sound’s great singles play continued when Barclay Fagg won in three sets (6-3, 5-7, 7-5) and Claire Fitzgerald won in three sets (5-7, 6-2, 6-4). 

Lisa Owen and Bouche teamed up to dominate at No. 1 doubles, 8-1. Fagg and Fitzgerald won at No. 3 doubles, 8-4.

UPS’ FRAZER PICKS UP  WEEKLY NWC LACROSSE HONORS

Playing in her final collegiate lacrosse home game, Puget Sound senior Ella Frazer totaled nine points to earn Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week.

Frazer scored six goals and assisted on three others to lead the Loggers to a 17-13 win over Pacific, April 14. She has a team-high 23 points this season (15 goals, eight assists).

Frazer and the Loggers conclude the season at Whitman, Sunday, April 22.
