Metro: MVC honors Lockwood, Abdul-Qaadir; national award for A.J.

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State sophomore Taylor Lockwood was named Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week on Monday after pitching one of two ISU softball shutouts Sunday and earning Most Valuable Player honors at Tennessee State’s Tiger Classic.

Lockwood, a transfer from Butler, is the first Sycamore softball player to earn MVC weekly honors since Megan Stone on March 25, 2013, and the first to win a pitching award since Lindsey Beisser did that twice in 2012.

Lockwood pitched in three of ISU’s four wins at Nashville, winning twice and not allowing an earned run in 13.2 innings. She had a four-hit shutout over the host team in ISU’s final game Sunday, allowing four hits while striking out seven.

Yvette Alvarez pitched a five-hitter earlier in the day Sunday in a 6-0 win over Temple as the perfect weekend improved ISU’s record to 5-3.

Morgan Allee and Erika Crissman joined Lockwood on the Tiger Classic all-tournament team.

“When you go 4-0 in a weekend, you have a lot of people step up,” Bouman said.

Rylee Holland had a hit and scored three runs against Temple. Aubre Carpenter was 2 for 2 with a double, Allee had two hits and a run and Alexa Cavin was 1 for 4 with two RBIs.

Allee accounted for all three ISU runs in the Tennessee State game, going 1 for 3 with a run and two RBIs. Crossman, who was 6 for 13 for the weekend, was 2 for 3 and scored twice.

The Sycamores return to action on Friday when they travel to Bowling Green, Ky., to play five games in the Holiday Inn Hilltopper Classic.

• Abdul-Qaadir also wins Valley honor — Senior guard Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir has been named this week’s Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week for women’s basketball, the league announced on Monday.

Abdul-Qaadir led the Sycamores to a weekend sweep of Missouri State and Wichita State on the road.

She posted her first career double-double in Sunday’s 63-51 win over Wichita State with 12 points and a career-high 11 assists — the most assists in a game since Mel Boeglin had 11 vs. Southern Illinois on Feb. 24, 2006.

Against Missouri State, Abdul-Qaadir had 11 points along with three assists and no turnovers as she helped ISU rout the Bears, 73-37.

• Cincinnati-Clermont 80, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods 62 — At Cincinnati, the Pomeroys closed out their season Monday with a road loss despite a record-setting performance by Ja’Breena Gardner.

Gardner, who led SMWC with 16 points and also had eight rebounds, had seven steals Monday to extend her own school record to 106. The previous record had been 94.

Sierra Lopez scored 11 Monday for the Pomeroys while Chelsea Weaver had eight points and a team-high 10 rebounds.

Weaver, Hailee Rittinger and Madeline Pea played their final game for SMWC, which finished the season 8-16.

Middle school basketball

• Warriors, Bees split — At Honey Creek Middle School, the host team and Woodrow Wilson split games in the opening round of the Vigo County girls tournament for sixth- and seventh-grade teams Monday.

In the sixth-grade game, Woodrow Wilson beat Honey Creek 30-10 as Shaelynn Bell had eight points for the Warriors and Whitney Siner three for the Bees.

Honey Creek came back to win the seventh-grade game 48-16 behind 21 points by Kayla Hughes. Amani Brown led Wilson with six.

Both winners return to Honey Creek today to play the Sarah Scott teams, while the West Vigo teams will play at Otter Creek.

Championship games are Thursday at West Vigo High School, with the sixth-grade final game at 6 p.m.

• Elite wins again — At Washington, Ind., the Terre Haute Elite girls seventh-grade team won its third tournament of the season after also going unbeaten in the Indy Girls League. They are 25-2 for the season.

Team members are Amani Brown, Sarah Chatman, Lauren England, Kayla Hughes, Elizabeth Humphrey, Aundrea Kearschner, Chloe Mason and Orian Roshel. Travis Mason is the coach.

• Cook wins state contest — At New Castle, Drew Cook of Brazil hit 32 of 35 free throws Saturday to win the boys 8-9 state Elks Hoop Shoot contest.

He will compete March 15 at Angola against winners from Ohio and Michigan.

Baseball

• Reed earns national honor — After belting five homers and driving in 11 runs in a three-game span, Kentucky junior A.J. Reed has been named one of four Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week, it was announced by Collegiate Baseball on Monday afternoon.

The Terre Haute South grad became the first player in UK history with five homers in a three-game span. Reed, who also gave up one run in seven innings for the pitching win Friday, hit two homers — including a grand slam — in the same inning, becoming the first player to hit two homers in an inning for UK since Jason Kipnis in 2007.

On Saturday, Reed gave UK the lead with a two-out, two-run single in the third inning at Old Dominion before tying the game in the seventh inning with a solo homer. In a Sunday win over St. John’s, Reed belted two homers to complete his historic stretch.

In seven games to open 2014, Reed has hit .433 (13 for 30) with 10 runs, three doubles, six homers and 17 RBIs. On the mound, Reed has a win over No. 1 Virginia in a 2-0 record, with a 1.50 ERA and a .205 opponent average in 12 innings.

Reed was also Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week on March 5, 2013, after a 15-RBI week.
