Ravens turn back No. 2 Trine

AU wins NCAA Division III softball tourney opener

ANDERSON, Ind. — Greenfield freshman Sami Frazier limited the No. 2-ranked team in the country to three hits as Anderson University defeated Trine 5-1 here Thursday.

The win moved the Ravens into the second round of the NCAA Division III Regional Tournament in Angola. AU will play at 2 p.m. today against Aurora.

“This was a nice win,” said AU coach Tony Holloway. “The past couple of years we have gone into this tournament really not knowing what to expect. This year we played Trine during the season.”

The Ravens jumped on the Thunder with a pair of runs in the first. Shenandoah product Yardley Collett had two hits and drove in a pair of runs, one of them coming in that first inning.

“We knew going in that as the No. 8 seed, it was important to score early,” said Holloway. “We knew that if we could get ahead, it would take away some of the things they like to do.”

Frazier was front and center in this game as she went the distance, allowing just three hits and one unearned run. She struck out six Trine hitters without yielding a walk. The Thunder came into the game leading the country in home runs (72), batting average (.374) and runs batted in (360). “We didn’t play our game,” said Trine coach Donnie Danklefson. “It was all on us.”

“Sami was lights out for us,” said Holloway. “She threw between 90 and 100 pitches, which is about normal for her. We’ll get up in the morning and see how she feels. If she’s close to 100 percent, we’ll throw her (against Aurora).”

AU put up two more runs in the second inning with two outs on the board. Samantha Steele and Highland’s Katie Lee had singles. Amy Wuestefeld singled in one run and another came on an illegal pitch called against Trine. That made the score 4-0.

The Ravens were able to pad the lead in the seventh. Steele singled and a run came in on consecutive hits by Wuestefeld, Katy Ogden and Collett.

“Our No. 9, No. 1 and No. 2 hitters in our lineup are our bread and butter,” said Holloway. “We got two hits from each of them (Steele, Lee, Wuestefeld). Collett has hit in the No. 4 slot all year and she is our RBI maker.”

Should the Ravens win today, they would play at 2 p.m. on Saturday. A loss today would put them into the losers’ bracket and they would have a game Saturday at 10 a.m.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
