SB Fall Exhibition Tourney 9/20 at Price Field

SycEm

The Sycamore Level
Softball hosts a 3 team fall exhibition tourney this Saturday at Price Field. Not sure why the NCAA allows softball to play outside competition in the fall but doesn't allow baseball to do the same? Anyway, I know softball uses these fall home tourneys as fund-raisers to help with some of their travel and equipment costs during the acutal season in the spring - so they typically charge an admission. This Saturday, the Sycamores take on Ball State at 12pm and Parkland College at 4pm. At 2pm, Ball State and Parkland will square off. Looks like they are also welcoming back Alumni on Saturday and having a picnic after the contests.

The Sycamore Level
Softball sweeps contests at Price Field Saturday, knocking off Ball State 3-1 before taking out Parkland College 8-0. Good turnout on the day also with the small spectator section mostly filled and lots of people standing around also. Nice to see Darcy Wood pitch again, as she went 4 innings of relief against Ball State, giving up 1 run on 2 hits and striking out 5. Sycamores outhit the Cardinals 8-4 by my count. Second game saw an entirely new line-up for the Sycamores and they pounded out 13 hits against Pakland while only allowing 1 hit for the Cobras. Parkland lost to the Illini during the week 5-0 and were beaten by Ball State 5-0 before playing us. Sr. Mere Simpson seemed to be picking up where she left off last spring, as she went for a double and hit a 2 run HR against Ball State.
