COLLEGE BASEBALL: NAIA CONFERENCE TOURNAMENTS ARE UNDERWAY!

ius_logoThe Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference threw out the first pitch yesterday in postseason play for the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics). The ever- dangerous INDIANA UNIVERSITY- SOUTHEAST GRENADIERS came in as the 3 seeds and opened up the proverbial can of whupass on the 6th seeded ALICE LLOYD COLLEGE EAGLES. The college sports gods always smile when a team with an overused name like Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs or Wildcats gets routed and the Grenadiers were happy to oblige!

IUS led 4-1 after the 1st Inning and 7-1 after the 2nd. The Grenadiers then went on to put up 4, 1 and 3 runs respectively in the 7th, 8th and 9th Innings on their way to an impressive FIFTEEN to ONE humilation of the Eagles. Mason Lingafelter got the win as IUS moves on to the next round.   Continue reading

THE FEEL-GOOD STORY OF THE FALL CONTINUES

 The Indiana University Southeast Grenadiers volleyball team continues their movie-like turnaround. At 1 point the ladies were a very glum 1-7 and are now boasting a 13-9 record. The Grenadiers’ latest victory came over the Oakland City University Mighty Oaks, who are sure to be featured as 1 of my Cool-Named Teams Of The Day sometime soon. IUS won in 4 sets, by scores of 25-20, 25-13, 18-25 and 25-18. Appropriate for a team called the Grenadiers the ladies had a total of 47 kills in the match. For some noteable stats from the IUS players, complete with their official Balladeer’s Blog nicknames, just read on:

Lindsey “Aces Wild” Maymon had a match-high 13 kills (and 21 wounded – rimshot) while her teammate “Judex” Julie Roeder had 11 kills of her own. (Insert your own “A Kill-Count Of One’s Own” joke here) “Stormin'” Lauren McCartin contributed 3 kills, 3 assists and 7 kills. McCartin normally plays at the “short-stop of volleyball” libero position but for this game was replaced in that role by Emily “Starry” Knight.

The Grenadiers next travel to the Pikeville Bears this Saturday and will be back in New Albany, IN on Tuesday, October 12th, hosting the Lindsey Wilson Blue Raiders. Tickets for IUS volleyball matches are $7 for adults. If you tell them you read about the team in Balladeer’s Blog they’ll pay YOU $7.00! (I’m kidding!)

NUGGETS: SEPTEMBER 28TH

 The Cumberlands Patriots started Mid-South Conference play Saturday with a 35-33 win over the Bethel (TN) Wildcats in an Instant Classic. The Patriots are now 2-2 overall after holding on late to notch this win. Sophomore star Terrance “The Bad TC” Cobb led the team’s rushing attack with 114 yds on 21 attempts plus 1 TD catch. QB “Jammin'” Jay Bright was 6 of 12 with 3 TD’s. On the other side of the ball the Patriots were led by “Dr Defense” himself, Brendan Kelly, who had 20 tackles, an interception and 2 pass breakups, 1 of which sealed the win for UC. Next Saturday the Pats face The Battle For The Brass Lantern against their rivals the Union Bulldogs. 

  The Lincoln Memorial University Lady Railsplitters volleyball team came back from being down 2-1 to pull out a 3-2 win over the Newberry College Wolves. The ladies won by scores of 22-25, 25-15, 23-25, 29-27 and 16-14. With this win the Railsplitters are now 8-2 overall and 4-2 in the South Atlantic Conference. Tomorrow LMU will take on the Tusculum Pioneers with the opening serve scheduled for 6:30PM.

 Reigning NAIA football champs the Sioux Falls Cougars continued their quest to threepeat as National Champions with a handy 34-10 win over the Hastings Broncos. QB Jon “Jonny East” Eastman gave Broncos defenders fits with his arms and his legs (and his pancreas had them frothing at the mouth with rage) picking up 386 yds through the air and 39 more on the ground. The high point of the game for Hastings, the home team, may have come when a team of skydivers (Insert your own Coleman Francis joke here. Fans of bad movies will get it) delivered the game balls in spectacular fashion prior to kickoff.

 The Indiana University Southeast Grenadiers’ volleyball team continues their monumental turnaround this season. At one point sporting a glum record of 1-7 the ladies have won 9 in a row to become 10-7 on the year! Balladeer’s Blog has been following this story since the ladies were still below .500 and this may well be the feel-good story of the fall! This past weekend the Grenadiers defeated the Mountain State Cougars and the Cincinnati Christian Eagles. Jade “Killbot” Troutman led IUS with 11 kills and Lindsey “Aces Wild” Maymon had a match-high 4 service aces against the Cougars. Against the Eagles “Judex” Julie Roeder provided crucial kills to keep the Grens in the game until a big block by PJ “PJ” Cockerell put them up for good. Someone get a movie studio ready for a project about these ladies!

 The Johns Hopkins Blue Jays football team crushed the Moravian Greyhounds 41-3 on Saturday. QB “Hurlin'” Hewitt Tomlin went 18 of 33 for 219 yds and 2 TD’s through the air and on the ground led the Blue Jays with 65 yds. 53 of those yds came on a career-long run for Tomlin following a fake in the 2nd quarter. Tomlin has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player Of The Week for his performance.  The Blue Jays are now 2-1 for the 3-game road series to open the 2010 season.

 Two women on the Alverno Inferno volleyball team were named to the Moody Bible Institute All-Tournament Team after the Inferno’s participation in the event this weekend. Chelsea Gulbronson and Morgan Stuckey were the two players named to the All-Tournament Team. Over the course of the 3 matches Gulbronson had 12 kills, 6 service aces and 2 solo blocks. while Stuckey had a team-leading 29 kills, 6 aces and 4 digs.
