Weber powers Dragons
KC Weber provided enough offense to beat Walsh on his own, though plenty of his Tiffin teammates got in on the act.
Weber homered, had four hits and drove in five runs as the Dragons ran over the Cavaliers Friday, 12-1, in the first of a three game set.
Weber did much of his damage in the first inning, as part of a nine-run frame. The Tiffin catcher doubled in a run, then smacked a three-run shot.
That was more than enough for a pair of Tiffin pitchers. Joe Perretta picked up the win, going six innings, allowing five hits and striking out three. He didn’t walk a batter or allow a run.
Tyler Glass threw three innings, allowing five hits and a run in relief.
Tiffin improved to 18-24, 12-14 in the Great Lakes Intercollegate Athletic Conference. Walsh slipped to 18-17, 12-13.
TU lacrosse finishes regular season in style
PHILIPPI, W.Va – It’s fair to say that winless Alderson-Broaddus provided little challenge for the Tiffin University lacrosse team, or star player Alexandria Quast.
The 19-1 halftime score showed that.
TU let up a bit in the second half, only outscoring the Battlers 8-1. The result was a 27-2 Tiffin win.
It was another huge offensive game in a career of them for Quast. Quast scored a TU single game record 10 goals Friday night, adding five assists. She’s now 10 goals away from second all-time on the Division II list.
Emily Roussel added five goals for the Dragons, who finished the regular season at 8-8, 6-2 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Katelyn Hill had four goals, while Jessica Bombard and Kellie Gruber needed to make just one save between them.
Tia Kline and Cynthia Rice each had a goal for the Battlers, who fell to 0-12, 0-7.
Tiffin will host a GLIAC quarterfinal game Tuesday night at Frost-Kalnow Stadium.
Dragons offense powers past Pioneers
Tiffin University’s softball team brought out the bats in a big way Friday, outscoring Malone 21-3 over a doubleheader sweep.
The Dragons won the games 15-1 and 6-2.
Malone really struggled defensively in the first contest, committing three errors that led to nine unearned runs. TU starting pitcher Amber Young had a 10-run lead before even stepping into the circle to throw her first pitch.
TU’s Payton Denman led the Dragons with four hits and five RBIs. Brianna Gamm added four hits, driving in two runs. Kasie Sepeda slammed a two-run homer.
Young tossed four innings, allowing a run and striking out nine.
In the second game, the Dragons used a three-run burst in the sixth inning to break open a close game. Again, Sepeda showed power, homering and driving in three runs. Gamm had two hits and drove in a pair of runs, while Kristin Prokopakis had two hits, including a triple and an RBI.
Madison Yanek got the win in three innings of relief, as the Dragons improved to 19-23, 12-10 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
