Ute tennis team excited for first NCAA appearance in 21 years

first_img Steve C. Wilson, Courtesy University of Utah Athletics The Utes played well in the non-conference portion of the season, winning 17 of 19 matches, including wins over local rivals BYU, Utah State and Weber State. They opened Pac-12 play with wins over Arizona State and Arizona, but had a tough April while playing against the cream of the Pac-12 crop; teams that are also among the best in the country.Three Pac-12 teams, UCLA (No. 2), Stanford (4) and USC (10), are ranked in the top 10 in the country. But playing those Pac-12 schools said competing in the top tennis conference in the nation helped the Utes get into the NCAA tourney.“The Pac-12 is the best league in the country — 55 out of 75 times the Pac-12 has won the national championship,” Brateanu said. “It’s a very challenging league.”After dropping their final six matches of the season and losing in the first round of the Pac-12 championship, the Utes were on the bubble for making the NCAAs.“To be honest, we were either the first team out or last team in,” said Brateanu. “Thank goodness it was the last team in. We really didn’t know what to expect. I knew the ranking was there if the committee honored the ranking. It was a nerve-wracking day, but we were really excited when our name was called out.”For senior Santiago Sierra, the only player to have been with the Utes for the past four years, it was a thrill to be invited.“I’m overjoyed, super excited,” he said. “This has been a goal for the last four years since I came into the program. Definitely being able to achieve this is super special. It’s an unbelievable way to finish a college career.”Utah’s top two players are Dan Little, a junior from London, England, and David Micevski, a junior from Macedonia, who posted season records of 17-6 and 15-7, respectively. Sierra, who hails from Mexico, came back from shoulder surgery last year to move up from No. 6 at the start of the season to No. 3 in the lineup, and compiled an 18-4 record on the season.Another senior, Egbert (Eggy) Weverink, plays No. 4, while Randy Cory, a freshman from Salinas, California, plays No. 5. Three players, freshman Russell Benkaim, sophomore Slava Shainyan and junior Joe Woolley, have been competing for the No. 6 spot. Unheralded senior leads Utah tennis players into Pac-12 championships this week USU tennis: men’s tennis to take on No. 9 TCU in opening round of NCAA Tournament Related Utah’s David Micevski hits a shot during match against Arizona on April 22, 2017, in Salt Lake City.center_img Steve C. Wilson, Courtesy University of Utah Athletics This marks Oklahoma’s ninth straight NCAA appearance, with the Sooners advancing to the round of 16 the last five years. They were the NCAA runner-up for three straight years 2014-16 and last year the doubles team of Andy Harris Spencer Papa won the doubles title. This year they are led by No. 1 player Alex Bakshi, who is 14-2 on the season.Sierra believes the Utes will be competitive after going through their tough schedule this season.“They have been one of the best teams in the country over the past five or six years but in our conference we play teams like USC, UCLA, Cal and Stanford, and three of those four are top 10 in the country,” he said. “We’ve been close to beating those teams at some point in the past four years, so we have the same approach as we do with those schools.”The Utes and Sooners’ match will be at 11 a.m. MDT Friday, with Georgia and Minnesota playing in the other bracket at 1 p.m. The winners will meet on Saturday. The winner of the regional will go on to compete for the national championship in a 16-team tournament at Wake Forest University May 18-22. SALT LAKE CITY — It’s not often a team gets invited to an NCAA tournament while in the midst of a seven-game losing streak.That’s the position in which the Utah men’s tennis team finds itself as it gets ready for Friday’s first-round match against No. 17 Oklahoma. However, the Utes certainly aren’t complaining about the invitation — their first NCAA invite in 21 years.“You always put it down as a goal and it’s been a goal for a very long time,” said Utah coach Roeland Brateanu of the NCAA invite. “I think this was the team we felt, at the beginning of the year, that could really do it. We worked really hard for it and came up with it.” Utah men’s tennis coach Roeland Brateanu coaches his team during match against Loyola Marymount on March 19, 2016, in Salt Lake City.last_img read more

Softball: March 17 Scoreboard

first_imgVincent pitched nine shutout innings with one walk and four strikeouts in game one. Allred took the loss in the nightcap, falling to 4-4 on the year. – Return to Top – McNeese went down in order in four of the first five innings, getting a single from Taylor Schmidt in the second.  McNeese had runners in scoring position also in the sixth and the seventh innings but Utah ended the innings with a pop out to the catcher and a line drive to the pitcher. With ACU senior pitcher Emily Seidel at 106.0 innings and an important three-game Southland Conference series against Central Arkansas on the horizon, head coach Bobby Reeves elected to give Montoya her sixth start of the season. And while her final stat line of six runs, five earned on seven hits and seven walks wasn’t exactly pretty, she pitched effective enough down the stretch before turning things over to Seidel for the game’s final out. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Wildcats, raising their season record to 5-18, while the Mavs fell to 14-14. – Return to Top – Utah 1, McNeese State 0 (10)Utah 2, McNeese State 1LAKE CHARLES, La. – McNeese softball didn’t get the timely hitting it needed Tuesday night in its doubleheader loss to Utah, falling 1-0 in 10 innings and 2-1 in the nightcap. Both teams were quiet again until the top of the sixth, when UCA loaded the bases. Third baseman Sam Forrest led the inning off by getting hit by a pitch, and moved to second base when right fielder Briana Whisenhunt picked up a bunt single. Second baseman Sarah Bigej reached on an error to load the bases, but a foul out and a double play ended the Bears’ threat. The Colonels were held to four hits in the loss, getting singles from Brooke Morris, Danielle Phillips, Haley Parkerson and Jessica Taylor. Parkerson’s leadoff blooper down the left line in the third, combined with a walk by Taylor, led to the Colonels’ lone run as Morris hit a shot up the middle with two outs to bring home Parkerson from second. After that rocky opening frame, the Wildcats got one back in the second when a double play ball with the bases loaded scored Alyson Bishoff, who reached on an error by the shortstop. No. 24/24 Mississippi State 16, Southeastern Louisiana 1 (5)HAMMOND, La. – The Southeastern Louisiana softball team closed out its six-game home stand with a 16-1 loss to No. 24 Mississippi State Tuesday evening at North Oak Park. With the loss, Nicholls slipped to 16-9 on the year while LSU, coming off its first loss of the season over the weekend at top-ranked Florida, improved to 28-1. Schmidt led the Cowgirls with a 2 for 4 plate appearance and Jamie Allred took the loss in relief of starter Emily Vincent. Any hopes of a SLU comeback were dashed in the top of the second inning. The Bulldogs sent 13 batters to the plate in a seven-run frame to take a 12-1 lead. Bishop got SLU out of the inning and pitched scoreless third and fourth innings, but MSU was able to close the scoring with four runs in the top of the fifth inning. Brown’s single cut the Mavs’ lead to 5-3. Kristin Watkins followed with the Wildcats’ third-straight hit to load the bases and on the next play she beat the throw to second base, allowing Demi McNulty to score on Hedrick’s fielder’s choice. Neese capped the rally with the go-ahead single down the left field line that brought home Brown and Watkins. Through the first two frames, both teams struggled to put anything together, but in the bottom of the third, the Cowgirls (14-13) finally broke through. Centerfielder Shelby Davis got things going for OSU, singling to leftfield and stealing second base. After Davis moved to third on a bunt single from right fielder Shianne Hughes, third baseman Tiffany Mikkelson drove her in for the game’s first run with a single through the left side of the infield. A failed fielder’s choice loaded the bases, and first baseman Danielle Riddle cashed in, doubling to right-centerfield to clear the bags and put OSU up 4-0. Nicholls will return to conference play this weekend as they host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi for a three-game series. Friday’s opener is scheduled for 6 p.m., with Saturday’s doubleheader slated for 12 p.m. Sam Montes started and finished the game for the Mavs, but the loss went to reliever Kayla Donaldson who was responsible for all the damage in the fourth. The two hurlers combined for four strikeouts, while Montoya only had one. Stokes had base hits in two previous at-bats and was responsible for two of the Mavs’ four first-inning runs, finishing the game 2-of-4. McNeese took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning of game two when Erika Piancastelli scored on a Utah error. Abilene Christian 7, Texas-Arlington 6ARLINGTON, Texas – The luck of the Irish was on the side of Abilene Christian softball St. Patrick’s Day as the Wildcats got a giant 6.2-inning effort from junior Julia Montoya and a two-run single from Holly Neese as part of a four-run fourth to silence the UT Arlington Mavericks, 7-6, at Allan Saxe Field. – Return to Top – Oklahoma State 4, Central Arkansas 0STILLWATER, Okla. – The Central Arkansas softball team took a break from Southland Conference play on Tuesday afternoon, travelling to Stillwater, Oklahoma to battle the Oklahoma State Cowgirls. The Bears were unable to get anything going offensively, losing their nine game winning-streak as they fell 4-0. Taylor Brown made it a 5-2 game in the third, scoring on a Peyton Hedrick single up the middle, and in the fourth the Wildcats batted around with two outs, collecting a pair of run-scoring hits from Brown and Neese. The Cowgirls (20-8) collected 10 hits on the day but only one extra base hit and left seven base runners stranded including the tying and winning runs in scoring position with one out in the bottom of the ninth in the first game. Bell had a huge day at the plate for the Tigers, going 4-for-4 with four RBIs. She entered the game with a .545 batting average and finished the day with 45 RBIs on the year. Freshman third baseman Sydney Booker hit her team-high seventh double for SLU, while freshman outfielder Kinsey Nichols and senior second baseman Vanessa Eng each also had hits. Senior first baseman Teresa Lemos drove in the Lady Lions’ lone run, while junior Taylor Bishop struck out three in 2.1 innings of shutout relief. The Cowgirls would hold the lead until the fifth when the Utes scored two runs on three hits and one Cowgirl error to take a 2-1 lead. Flippin struck again as she provide the two RBI’s in the nightcap as well. McNeese left the go ahead run stranded on third base three times in the game and nearly tied the game in the sixth when Marisa Taunton was called out on a close play at the plate.center_img Kylee Studioso (14-3) recorded her first loss since February 14th, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk. She struck out four Cowgirls. Brandi Needham (8-4) earned the win for OSU, limiting the Bears to three hits and striking out four in seven innings. Central Arkansas returns to SLC play this weekend, travelling to Abilene, Texas to battle Abilene Christian. The teams will play a doubleheader beginning at 4:00 PM on Friday, before wrapping up the series with a single game at noon on Saturday. ACU was down four runs after the first and behind 5-1 after two frames, but the Wildcats clawed their way back in the fourth and were ahead 7-5 entering the last half of the seventh. No. 1/1 LSU 6, Nicholls 1BATON ROUGE, La. – Playing against the nation’s top-ranked team, the Nicholls State University softball team struck first against No. 1 LSU with a run in the third, but the Tigers scored six unanswered runs to defeat the Colonels, 6-1, on Tuesday night at Tiger Park. Hedrick and Brown each finished with two hits. Hedrick was 2-of-3 with a run, RBI and stolen base. Brown was 2-of-5 with two runs and a RBI. The Utes (19-9) broke a scoreless game in the 10th with a RBI single by Hannah Flippen that scored Bridget Castro. Castro led the inning off with a walk. McNeese failed to tie the game in the bottom of the 10th inning after Utah’s pitcher Katie Donovan stuck out Bryanna Castro, got Dakota Matiko to pop out to second for the second out then ended the game with her fifth strikeout of the game by getting Shanice Hagler to go down swinging. But the Tigers plated two in the fifth off Haydel, aided by a leadoff walk. A double by Bailey Landry put runners in scoring position for Bell, who then delivered a 2-run single down the left field line. Haydel left the game in the fifth, allowing three runs on six hits and struck out one. Montoya again went to a full count vs. Meagan Michele before inducing a fly ball to left, but the next batter – Mya Anderson – made it a one-run game on a RBI single as Datko raced home from second base. Montoya began her final inning of work getting Nina Villanueva to line out to second on a 3-2 pitch before walking Shelbi Sikes in an eight-pitch at-bat. Sikes’ pinch runner Marisa Datko would advance to second on a passed ball. – Return to Top – – Return to Top – For the Colonels, Hannah Haydel (9-4) took the loss, despite a strong effort in the circle. After cruising through the first two innings, the junior native of Ama allowed a game-tying double to Bianka Bell in the third before getting out of a jam in the fourth. The Tigers put two on with two outs after a double and an error in the frame, but Haley Stevenson made a sharp play at third on a grounder and threw the batter out to keep the score at 1-all. Southeastern cut into the lead in the bottom of the first inning. A single by Nichols, a double by Booker and a walk to junior designated player Amber Sather loaded the bases with one out. Lemos then lifted a fly ball deep enough to right to score Nichols. However, SLU could manage just a Eng single and a Nichols walk the rest of the way against MSU freshman pitchers Holly Ward (5-1) and Cassady Knudsen. The series will conclude with a single game at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Forrest, Whisenhunt, and catcher Jessie Taylor were the only Bears to record a hit, as Central Arkansas was outhit seven to three on the day. The Lady Lions (10-16) had their three-game winning streak snapped. MSU, which made its debut in the top 25 on Tuesday, improved to 21-6 overall. Reeves called in Seidel from the bullpen with the go-ahead run at the plate and the senior responded to the challenge by having Rebecca Stokes fly out to right on the first pitch. The save was Seidel’s first of the season and Montoya improved to 2-3. The Wildcats and Bears will play a doubleheader Friday at 4 p.m. at ACU’s Poly Wells Field and a single game Saturday at 12 p.m. ACU scored the eventual game-winning run in the sixth after Hedrick – who led off with a double – scored on Bishoff’s single to left. The Mavs countered that run with one of their own in the second, picking up a leadoff solo home run from Kacey Everett. In the sixth, LSU tacked on three runs off reliever Taylor Hastings to make the final score. MSU jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning against senior Tori Stamper (2-3). Bulldog sophomore third baseman Caroline Seitz led off the game with a home run to set the tone for a first inning that saw nine batters come to the plate. But the Wildcats would score the next five runs. But that would be all the offense that Nicholls would get as LSU starting pitcher Baylee Corbello (7-0) held the Colonels to just two infield singles the rest of the way. Corbello, who one-hit Nicholls in last season’s 9-0 decision, finished with six strikeouts in seven innings of work. SLU will now travel to Nacogdoches, Texas for a Southland Conference series at Stephen F. Austin. The series opens with a 1 p.m. doubleheader on Friday and closes with a 12 p.m. contest on Saturday.

Officials frustrate Rodgers as St Mirren hold Celtic

first_img“But before the second one there is an incident when Olivier makes contact with the ball and wins the ball, but the referee gives a free-kick against us.“Then when you see it in the corner Olivier is running across to block the ball up the line and the St Mirren player is falling over as he plays it and at the same time Olivier slides but doesn’t have contact with the player.“So from that – and it’s in the corner which makes it lively – then the referee falls for it and he gets a second yellow. For me it wasn’t a second yellow or a sending-off.“Listen, it’s simple – I don’t think they were good.”While Rodgers was unhappy with his evening, new St Mirren manager Oran Kearney was delighted to begin his time in Paisley with an eye-catching result. Kearney gave debuts to Ryan Edwards and Anton Ferdinand, with the latter only having signed a couple of hours before the game. The former Coleraine boss reflected on a positive result, performance and first week in the job. “It is a massive point, one we wanted and one we are delighted to have,” he said.“We wanted a performance first and foremost and I am delighted with the manner the players have gone about their business, that was the key.” Brendan Rodgers criticised the match officials after Olivier Ntcham was sent off in the Celtic’s 0-0 draw with St Mirren.The French midfielder received his marching orders from match referee Andrew Dallas after picking up a second yellow card in the 37th minute of the stalemate in Paisley.Ntcham’s challenge on St Mirren captain Stephen McGinn saw the visitors reduced to ten men and forced to reorganise. Despite having the better of the second half, they couldn’t find their way through a resolute St Mirren defence, leaving Rodgers frustrated.Asked about the performance of the match officials, the Celtic boss said: “Not very good, to be honest. “I never like to focus too much on the referees but I think for both teams I didn’t think any of the four officials were very good at all.“I don’t know if it’s a mark of all the attention that’s around them at the moment.“But there were lots of incidents he got wrong, and for St Mirren as well. The sending-off, for me, is not a second yellow card.“If you watch it again, the first one is a booking and we take that.last_img read more
