Metro/prep roundup: Stagg, Allee, Akard honored

ExceptionaI college baseball and softball performances during the weekend have earned conference honors for three athletes from Terre Haute schools.

David Stagg’s nine hitless innings in Friday’s loss at Southern Illinois earned the Indiana State junior Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week award, while ISU softball player Morgan Allee and Rose-Hulman baseball player Hank Akard were also feted.

Stagg retired the first five batters he faced Friday, then hit a batter before retiring 11 more in a row. A pair of walks in the sixth were no problem, because the left-hander picked the first one off first base. He allowed one more walk in the eighth.

For the season Stagg is 5-2 with a 2.12 earned run average and has struck out 58 in 591⁄3 innings. He is the second Sycamore to receive the pitching honor this year; Ryan Keaffaber won the week of Feb. 17.

ISU is scheduled to play at 4 p.m. today at Eastern Illinois and has a three-game non-conference series at Canisius this coming weekend.

Allee was named Player of the Week after going 8 for 16 in Indiana State’s five games last week with two homers, two doubles and eight of her team’s 15 RBIs. She also had three stolen bases, moving into the MVC’s top 15 in that category in just her second season.

It’s the first POW honor of Allee’s career. Previous ISU winners this season have been Taylor Lockwood, Pitcher of the Week twice; Megan Stone, Player of the Week two weeks ago; and Brooke Riemenschneider, Newcomer of the Week.

Akard is the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week after a 13-for-24 showing in five games that included two homers, four doubles, seven runs, eight RBIs and four stolen bases. He is now Rose-Hulman’s all-time leader in steals.

He is now batting .343 for the season and leads the Engineers with 35 hits, 21 runs and 14 stolen bases. Currently sharing first place in the HCAC, Rose is scheduled to play at 4 p.m. today at Franklin.

In another honor:

•  Shoemaker named — Former Northview High School and Indiana State University slugger Brady Shoemaker has been named Southern League Player of the Week.

Now with the Jacksonville Suns of the Miami Marlins organization, Shoemaker leads the Southern League in batting (.429), on-base percentage (.568) and slugging percentage (.750).

Softball

•  Pomeroys split — At Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, USCAA’s top-ranked Pomeroys came within one game of sweeping their four regular-season contests with second-ranked Lindenwood-Belleville on Sunday, winning the first game of a doubleheader 3-1 but losing 6-4 in the nightcap.

SMWC had swept two extra-inning games at Belleville earlier this season.

Rebecca Latta and Emma Riffe had hits and Sarah Burnham and Shelby Barnett scored runs with the help of errors to give the Pomeroys a 2-1 lead in the third inning of the opener, and Barnett had a later RBI double. Brooke Jordan, who leads the USCAA in pitching wins, improved to 11-6 for the season.

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods got a run-scoring single from Breanna Lange and two run-scoring hits from Kirby Schuble to take a 4-3 lead in the fifth inning of the second game, but the Lady Lynx scored three times after two were out in the top of the sixth. Barnett and Carly Painter were honored on Senior Day.

Now 19-13, SMWC hosts a 3:30 p.m. doubleheader against Rose-Hulman on Wednesday. Lindenwood-Belleville is 22-17-1.
