Metro roundup: Sanford’s debut ISU football scrimmage today

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State’s football team will conduct its first scrimmage of spring practice at 3:30 p.m. today at Memorial Stadium.

ISU is one practice short of where it expected to be this spring. Snow wiped out one of the scheduled March practices.

Given that, new ISU football coach Mike Sanford put the onus on the urgency of learning his new offensive and defensive schemes.

“I feel like we are learning our offense, defense and special teams, but we need to learn it better. That’s the state of the union right now,” said Sanford after Thursday’s practice.

There are several position battles extent through spring. Even though it will be ISU’s first scrimmage, evaluation for those starting positions will be paramount today.

“It won’t be the whole practice, but we’ll do about 30 plays,” Sanford said. “We’re evaluating players at every position. We have decisions to make at the offensive line, quarterback, receiver, linebackers, tight end, the secondary, we have a lot of decisions to make as we go on through spring about who our starters are. That’s the number one thing right now.”

ISU has added a practice to its spring slate after it lost the practice due to snow as it will practice this Monday. ISU will have another scrimmage on April 12. The Blue-White game will be played on April 20.


Rose swept — At St. Louis, Mo., Rose-Hulman battled Webster University hard in two contests before falling 3-0 and 3-2 Wednesday night.

In the opener, Webster scored all three runs in the third inning to earn the 3-0 win. Racehl Franck and Erin McGinnis led the Gorloks with two hits each and Trisha Thompson tossed a three-hitter.

Freshman Taylor Lockhart tossed a complete game for Rose in the opener. She scattered nine hits with no walks and six strikeouts.

Junior Jenna Martinek, freshman Cassidy Bevington and freshman Jett Bender each had a hit for the Engineers in Game 1.

In the nightcap, Webster scored twice in the fourth and held off a late Rose-Hulman rally to earn the victory. Samantha Powers picked up the complete-game win for Webster by scattering eight hits.

Sophomore Carly Heibel led the Rose offense with two hits, including her first home run of the season, and two runs scored. Martinek added two singles and junior Allison Bowman had one RBI.

Senior Alyse Mueller recorded two strikeouts and allowed five hits in a complete game for the Engineers.
