Hope Clinches NCAA Men's Golf Tournament Bid

MIAA men's golf champion Hope clinched the conference's automatic bid to next month's NCAA Division III national tournament Saturday by winning the third and final 18-hole round of a 54-hole spring qualifier at Wuskowhan Players Club in West Olive.

The Flying Dutchmen had four players shoot rounds of under 80 in finishing with a score of 307, four strokes ahead of Adrian. Hope ended the 54-hole qualifier 15 strokes ahead of runnerup Trine with a score of 919.

Hope advances to the NCAA tournament for the sixth time in the last nine years. The national tournament will be held May 10-13 at the Grandover Resort and Conference Center in Greensboro, N.C., hosted by Guilford College.




   
 

Trine's Fuller Fires No-Hitter, Thunder Tie Softball Win Streak Mark

Trine righthander Bree Fuller fired the first softball no-hitter in the MIAA for the 2014 season Saturday in helping the Thunder tie an MIAA record for the longest winning streak in conference history.

Fuller, a junior, struck out 14 and walked two in pitching Trine to a 6-0 win over Calvin in the opening game of a doubleheader in Grand Rapids. The Thunder won the nightcap 8-0 for their 44th consecutive MIAA win, tying the conference record set by Alma from 1997 to 2000. Trine also clinched the MIAA championship and the top seed for next month's conference tournament.

Fuller's no-hitter is the 38th no-hitter since 1979, when the MIAA first established softball as a conference sport.
