METRO ROUNDUP: ISU baseball shut out by Auburn in opening game of season

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — Indiana State’s baseball team failed to score in its season opener Friday at the spring-training home of the Tampa Bay Rays as Auburn held off the Sycamores 4-0.

ISU will continue its southern tour today by taking on Connecticut at 11:30 a.m. and Ohio State at 3 p.m. in a pair of games to be played at the North Charlotte Regional Park. The Sycamores will wrap up the weekend by playing Ohio State at 1 p.m. Sunday before returning home.

“As I look at the boxscore, this is the untelling stat of the day,” new ISU coach Mitch Hannahs said. “I was really pleased with the tempo that [Kurt] Kudrecki set on the mound and he did a great job of going after their hitters. I was also pleased all day with our hitters. I really thought we had great at-bats, but we just did not have chance to turn the pressure around on them.”

Auburn scored a run in the second inning, adding two more in the sixth and one in the seventh against Kudrecki, who went six innings and allowed four runs on six hits while striking out three batters and walking three. Josh Dove, A.J. Elderry and Nick Kolarik also saw time on the mound.

Senior shortstop Tyler Wampler was 3 for 3 for the Sycamores, with junior third baseman Brian Romero contributing two singles.

Track

• Mascari sets school record — At Ames, Iowa, Indiana State sophomore John Mascari made history for the second time this season as he broke his own school record in the men’s 5,000-meter run.

His time of 13 minutes, 59.06 seconds makes him the first Sycamores to ever break the 14 minute barrier and puts him among the nation’s elite. His previous record was 14:09.82.

“Felt OK through the mile, then we hit 8:53 through 2 miles and I knew I was on for something special,” Mascari said. “It feels good to get under 14, especially after a good hard week of training and overcoming a bit of a head cold. I’m very pleased with this performance, but I know I have a lot more to give. I’m very excited about it.”

Mascari held on to finish eighth in a strong field that was won in 13:37.42 by Connor Reed of Wisconsin.

Mascari currently ranks 10th nationally in the men’s 5,000. At the end of the season, the top 16 will advance to the NCAA indoor championships.

Swimming

• Engineers faring well — At Pleasant Prairie, Wis., Rose-Hulman swimmers combined for six school records through Friday’s preliminary session of the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) championships.

The first four school records were established Thursday, with two more records falling in Friday morning’s preliminaries.

On Friday morning, freshman Alexander Yaung set a school record in the men’s 400 IM with a time of 4:10.08. Kline added a school record in the women’s 100 butterfly (1:02.06).

Wheaton College owned a 332-322 lead over Rose after day one of the men’s championships. Carthage stood third at 208 points, followed by Augustana at 176. On the women’s side, Rose-Hulman was fifth in the seven-team event.

The men’s 200-meter freestyle relay team of freshman Nate Weber, Bartine, sophomore Orion Martin and senior Andrew Podgorski led the first day’s placements with a second-place finish in 3:26.83.

The overall team effort also included two individual all-conference performances.

Hong came home third in the women’s 50 freestyle with a time of 24.33, while Martin was third in the men’s 50 freestyle in a time of 21.33 seconds to earn all-league honors.

The men’s 200 freestyle relay team of Bartine, sophomore Paul Hintz, Weber and Podgorski added a third-place finish in 1:26.29.

Freshman Matt Schulstad came home fourth in the 200 IM in a time of 1:55.35. Fifth-place individual finishers included Bartine in the men’s 200 IM (1:55.75) and sophomore Matt King in the 500 freestyle (4:41.32).

Action continues with seven more final events Friday night. The championships will conclude late tonight.

Women’s basketball

• SMWC loses to top-ranked team — At Clinton, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College was unable to keep pace with one of the best teams in the USCAA on Thursday night, dropping a 108-80 decision to top-ranked Lindenwood-Belleville.

The visiting Lady Lynx kept things close with the Pomeroys early in the first half. SMWC led 4-0 at the 18:58 mark with baskets by Ja’Breena Gardner and Sierra Lopez. Lindenwood-Belleville later went on an 8-0 run and extended its lead to 10 points midway through the first half. The visitors eventually seized a 54-35 advantage.

Na-Shaunda Rayford would score the first basket of the second half for the Pomeroys. Madeline Pea would follow with a three-point basket, cutting the Lady Lynx lead to 16 points at the 19:29 mark. However, that is the closest the Pomeroys would get as Lindenwood-Belleville would continue to extend their double digit lead for the remainder of the half.

Na-Shaunda Rayford scored a team-high 17 points for the Woods, Gardner registered a double-double with 16 points and team-high 12 rebounds, Chelsea Weaver chipped in with 15 points and eight boards and Alaura McKemie added 10 points.

Lindenwood-Belleville’s Diamond Burt secured a double-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Four other Lady Lynx players scored in double figures, including Shelby Kohrman with 21 points.

The Woods (8-14) will be at home Wednesday to faceWilberforce at 7 p.m. It will mark the final home game of the season for SMWC. Lindenwood-Belleville improved to 18-8.
