Around the MIAA (through March 31 games)

Adrian (13-7, 1-1)

The Adrian College softball team had a busy week last week, playing seven games to completion and then another six innings of the eighth game before it was suspended due to darkness. The Bulldogs split with Defiance and Heidelberg before sweeping cross-town rival Siena Heights, and then winning the first game with Olivet to open conference play. Junior Destiny Rogers led the offense last week, hitting .375 with the first hits of Rogers' season. Rogers drove in 10 runs, including two go-ahead home runs to win the game for the Black and Gold.


Albion (7-13, 0-0)

Pitcher Morgan Deckrow gave Albion a chance to win game one vs. Defiance last Wednesday. She allowed two earned runs, six hits and a walk over seven innings.

Alma (11-7, 1-1)

The Scots split their conference-opening series with Calvin on Thursday (March 28), winning 7-4 and falling 4-3. Four of Alma's seven losses this year have come by one run. Freshman shortstop Hadyn Terwilliger (Mount Pleasant, Mich.) hit a home run in each game, going 4-for-7 with four RBI on the day. Terwilliger is tied for fifth in the MIAA with three home runs while the Scots as a team lead the league in batting average, on base percentage and runs per game.


RV Calvin (11-5, 1-1)

Calvin went 3-1 on the week, sweeping Wheaton by scores of 9-1 and 5-3. Ellie Borst picked up the win in game one while Anna Gernant got the win in game two. On Thursday, Calvin split a conference doubleheader at Alma, falling 7-4 in the opener and winning 4-3 in the nightcap. Calvin's game two win was aided by a late two-run homer by junior Grace Quiggle while Gernant went the distance to gain the second win of the week. During the week, senior Maddie DeGroot became Calvin's all-time leader in at bats (469) and runs scored (110) after setting the Calvin career record for base hits the week prior.


RV Hope (10-4, 0-0)

The Hope College softball team split its home opener at Wolters Stadium on Wednesday, winning the first game, 7-2, but dropping the nightcap, 14-8. The first game saw a balanced scoring effort with seven different Hope players contributing runs. Shortstop Savannah Dixon (Niles, Mich.) delivered RBI singles three times in the first, third, and sixth innings. Right fielder Jordyn Diaz (Naperville, Ill.) blasted a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth to cap a four-run rally. In the second game, first baseman Kaelin Callow (Plainfield, Ill.) hit a two-run homer.


Kalamazoo (6-5, 0-0)

The Hornets concluded their spring break trip to Florida by going 3-2 including wins over Colby, Wisconsin-River Falls, and Middlebury. Seniors Andrea MacMichael and Ashley Schiffer concluded the trip with batting averages of .425 and .421 respectively. The pair each place in the top 10 in the MIAA in batting average while also hitting their first home runs of the season this week. MacMichael stole six bases during the trip which is good for seventh most in the conference. Kalamazoo will open MIAA play on Tuesday, April 2 when it hosts Albion. It will then travel to Saint Mary's and the University of Chicago over the weekend.


Olivet (12-8, 1-1)

The Olivet College softball team swept a non-conference doubleheader at Bluffton before opening MIAA play with a doubleheader split against Adrian. Against Bluffton, Kinslea Blouin posted a .600 batting average, hitting a home run in each game. Kaylee Clothier and Karina Marin each had a .500 batting average. Gracie Boyle and Andrea Rico earned the pitching win. Against Adrian, the Comets lost 7-6 in 10 innings and won 12-8. For the doubleheader, Rico was 5-of-7 (.714). Payton Watson collected four hits, and five others each had three hits. Blouin hit another home run to move into second all-time at Olivet. Watson needs just two more to become the leader. In the circle, Danielle Erickson picked up the win in relief.


Saint Mary's (3-12, 0-0)

The Belles swept Manchester in their first home doubleheader of the season by matching 3-1 scores last Tuesday. Mandi Hettinger went 2-for-2 at the plate in the opener with an RBI double, and Zoe Bruni picked up the pitching win after going the distance in the circle. JoAnna Keilman was 2-for-2 in game two with a triple. Hailey Hisaw earned the pitching win after going five complete innings and allowing one run one just three hits while striking out a pair. Mandi Hettinger earned the save.


#17 Trine (12-2, 0-0)

The Thunder started the home portion of their season right with a pair of victories over visiting Anderson (Ind.) University. They took the first game by scoring three runs in the first and then holding off the opposition for the rest of the contest to win 3-1. In the second half of the day the Thunder opened up the offensive cylinders bringing in 11 as they won by seven.
