Lady Commodores Battle but See Season Come to an End Against Schoolcraft – 5/3/17

By Bryce Johnson, Sports Information Assistant

Elyria, OH – It was a tough season for the Lady Commodores of Lorain CCC but the team can take many positives to the off season. After a year off, LCCC not only brought their team back but hired new head coach Ryan Minney. On Wednesday the Lady Commodores hosted Schoolcraft (MI) in the team’s double header. In game 1, LCCC would fall 11-0 then in game 2 the team would fall 19-0. With a handful of rain outs, the Lady Commodores would end the season 0-10.

Game 1: Schoolcraft 11, LCCC 0
As a team, LCCC had 6 hits and was led by Alex Willis who went 2 for 2. Along with Willis, Emily Weyer, Leigha Donaghue, Morgan Nisenboum and pitcher Amanda Barley added a hit as well.

For the first two innings, things stayed close as the Lady Commodores only trailed 1-0 heading to the top of the 3rd. On the mound for LCCC was Barley who found ways to keep the game within reach. After trailing just 1-0, the Lady Commodores would run into some problems after 3 with the team giving up 3 additional runs.

Although Schoolcraft put runs on the board, it didn’t come from an overload of hits as LCCC held their opponent to just 10 total hits. Without any run support, LCCC would see the 4-0 lead jump up to 11-0 after a big 7th inning.

LCCC would fall 11-0 in 7 innings.

Game 2: Schoolcraft 19, LCCC 0
With a slight hangover from game 1, LCCC would struggle to find their bats as the team would combine for 4 hits. Making contact in game 2 was Leigha Donaghue, Emily Hastings, Amanda Barley, and Alex Willis all going 1 for 3.

Taking the mound was Nisenboum who went 7 innings, giving up 13 hits, 11 runs and striking out 2. After trailing just 6, LCCC would see the game get out of reach after giving up 11 runs in the top of the 4th.

Nisenboum would settle down and have some solid innings as she and the defense would hold Schoolcraft to 0 runs in the 3rd inning, 6th and 7th. With the bats not rolling, the game would end 19-0 in 7 innings.

LCCC Softball is Back after Year Off: LCCC Loses Game 1, 10-0 Before Falling to Clark State 5-1 in Game 2 – 3/19/17

By Bryce Johnson, Sports Information Assistant

Springfield, OH – After a year off from softball, Lorain CCC played its first softball game of the season against Clark State Sunday afternoon. After falling 10-0 in game 1, the Lady Commodores held Clark State to just 5 runs while scoring its first run of the season, losing 5-1.

Leading the way on the day offensively was Emily Weyer who batted 3 for 6 and Jasmine White who batted 3 for 5 with an RBI in the team’s only run of the day taking place in game 2.

Defensively, Amanda Barley took the mound in both games and will start the year 0-2 after Sunday’s games. After a tough start in game 1, Barley was able to slow the Lady Eagles down to just 5 runs in game 2.

GAME 1: Clark State 10, LCCC 0
To start things off on the season, LCCC bats started off slow as the team combined for just 6 hits. Hitting well for the Lady Commodores was Emily Weyer who hit 2 for 3 whiling leading off with a double for her team. Following things up was Emily Hastings who hit a single to advance runners but the pitching of the Lady Eagles would hold LCCC from scoring.  Although LCCC was held scoreless, the team found production from Jasmine White who went 1 for 3 along with Amanda Barley and Abby McCann who went 1 for 3.

On the mound for LCCC was Amanda Barley who went 4 innings giving up 11 hits and 10 runs. After a rough start, Barley was able to strike-out 2 batters but it was not enough as the Eagles did their damage mostly in the 2nd and 3rd innings.  With the mercy rule in effect, the Commodores would fall 10-0 in short innings.

“It’s a process and it will take some time. We started off slow on the day but we improved and that’s all I could ask for” said 1st year head coach Ryan Minney.

GAME 2: Clark State 5, LCCC 1
LCCC’s Jasmine White scored the team’s first run of the season in the 5th inning after an Emily Weyer hit. White went just 1 for 3 but the one hit she got was the biggest one of the season as it recorded the team’s first run of the year.

Having another solid game for her team was Emily Weyer who hit 2 for 5. As a team, LCCC hit just 6 for 28 but found themselves filing the bases a little more in game two.  “We had improvements in game 2 and that’s exactly what I asked of them. They gave it all to me and improved as the day went on. It’s a process and we’re feeling each other out. It’s going to take some time but the big thing was, we made improvements” said Coach Minney following the teams double header.

Taking the mound in game 2 was Barley who made it 6 innings, giving up just 3 hits and 5 runs; in game 2, Barley was able to strike out 3 batters.  After an early lead for Clark State, LCCC was able to trim the game to 4-1 but a late run by the Eagles kept things out of reach, ending the game 5-1.
