  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Softball travels to Fort Wayne for match with IPFW

The Bowling Green softball team will look to rebound from two losses to Kent State University last weekend.

The team will play its last non-conference game of the season in Indiana against Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne team. Indiana-Purdue has put together a 31-13 season and will be coming off of a two game win streak. This will mark just the third time the teams have played each other in the last four years; Bowling Green is trailing in the series 1-3 to IPFW over that four years.

The recent play of both teams will match IPFW junior pitcher Miranda Kramer with an improving Falcon offense. Kramer has just been named Summit League Pitcher of the Week for the fifth time this season. Kramer pitched two complete games last weekend and earned a 0.41 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 17 innings. Kramer has a record of 16-8 over the course of the season and has maintained solid numbers. She has a 1.68 ERA and 10 shutouts. She has also struck out 256 batters, which is the second most in IPFW history.

However, Bowling Green’s offense has been sparked by senior Katie Yoho, who was named Mid-American Conference East player of the week this past Monday. Yoho led the team to a 4-2 record this past week, 2-0 against teams outside the MAC. She was locked in on offense with a .400 batting average on the week. She also recorded a double, three home runs including one grand slam, and 12 RBIs just last weekend.

It is not just last week that Yoho got hot; she has been consistent all year. The senior leads the team in batting average with a .319 on 44 games this season. She also leads the team in a number of other categories with 45 hits, nine home runs, 80 total bases, and 34 RBIs. The team will look for Yoho to continue her offensive play to take down IPFW.

The team offense has also been impressive as a whole. Fellow senior captain Erika Stratton has a total of 27 RBIs on the season. Freshmen Chelsea Raker, Aspen Searle and Amanda Durham have all also contributed numbers in their first year combining for 105 hits, 15 doubles, two triples and 41 RBIs on the season.

Junior Pitcher Jamie Kertes has also been solid this year in the circle with 120 strikeouts. Kertes has pitched 171.1 innings this season and has kept her opponents at a .272 batting average while holding a 2.53 ERA.

The Falcons play will begin at 3 p.m. this Wednesday in Fort Wayne, Ind.
