Metro roundup: News mixed for ISU softball Shutout at SIU assures winning season, not postseason play

Accomplishing two of its three goals for the weekend was a bittersweet occasion for the Indiana State softball team Sunday, although the Sycamores still recorded their first winning season in the sport since 1992 and set a lot of records along the way.

Taylor Lockwood pitched a two-hit shutout in a 3-0 victory that gave ISU a series win at Southern Illinois, one of the team goals. In doing so, the Sycamores (27-26, 9-17 Missouri Valley Conference) achieved their winning record for a second goal, but were thwarted in their third objective — the MVC’s postseason tournament — when Missouri State won two of three games at Evansville, including Sunday’s rubber game.

The two wins by the Bears enabled them to stay a game ahead of ISU for the final spot in postseason play. Had Evansville won two of the three games of that series, the Sycamores had the tiebreaker over Missouri State and would be preparing to play again later this week.

Indiana State broke the scoreless tie in the top of the fourth inning Sunday, when Aubre Carpenter reached on an error, was bunted to second by Erika Crissman and scored on a double by Shelby Wilson.

Lockwood had retired 10 batters in order when the Sycamores padded the lead in the top of the sixth on homers by Crissman and Megan Stone.

The win gave ISU its first series win over the Salukis (28-23, 15-11) since 1986, and the Sycamores became the first team with a winning record to miss the MVC tournament.

During the season Indiana State established new team records for on-base percentage, slugging percentage, runs, RBI, saves, fielding percentage, times hit by pitch and total bases. Senior Morgan Allee set a single-season record for on-base percentage at .497.


Keen, Jones win again — At Cliinton, Tom Jones and Chris Keen were winners in golf tournament action for the second week in a row.

They had rounds of 68 and 61 to finish with  a 15-under-par 129 score to win the two-man scramble concluded Sunday at Geneva Hills. They won a two-man scramble at Forest Park last weekend.

Ryan Luce and Bob Kyle had 133 to finish second in Vermillion County. Blayd Horrall and Ryan Evans won the first flight with 135 and Randy Kendall and Ed Grayless won the second flight with 145.

A two-player scramble will be played this Saturday at Idle Creek.
