Lion men are runner-up, women third, as seven school records fall at LSC Championships.

PORTALES, N.M. – The Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s track and field team finished as the runner-up, while the Lion women placed third at the Lone Star Conference Championships at Eastern New Mexico University’s Greyhound Stadium.

The Lions picked up nine gold medals in Saturday’s action and posted seven school records and a meet record during the final day of the meet.

“This track meet brings out the best in everyone. There were incredible marks in every event in windy conditions,” said Lion head track and field coach George Pincock. “The 4×100 meter relay teams really set the tone for the running events today with two automatic marks and school records. I’m proud of the sprint group and how they stepped up.

“Eboni Coby and Markaaisha Richardson had huge days. Minna Svaerd was great too, battling a few nagging injuries and I’m positive that by Nationals she will be ready to go. A pair of freshmen in Atiana Alexander and Jahonna Hinds got their first taste of an LSC outdoor finals.

“The entire men’s sprints group worked hard for everything today. They ran a lot of races and found a way to get it done every time. The field event group was huge today too. Kendra Mims, Chelsea Cheek, and Mackenzie Clark each contributed. The throws group continued to put big marks out there and proved that as a group they deserve to be considered among the best in the nation.”

Eboni Coby (Lancaster) picked up double gold and two school records in the women’s 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash. Her time of 11.35 seconds in the 100-meter dash is the school and LSC Championships meet, and her time of 23.03 in the 200-meter dash set the school record. She was also the anchor leg on the 4×100 meter dash with Mackenzie Clark (Garland – Naaman Forest), Markaaisha Richardson (Amarillo – Tascosa), and Ro’Nisha Simpson (Tatum) that set the school record with a gold medal time of 45.42 seconds, as well as the bronze medal 4×400 meter relay team.

The men’s 4×400 meter relay team won the LSC gold medal for the third straight year, with Stadrian Taylor (Lancaster), D’Lance Sharp (Commerce), Devon Sanders (Clarksville), and Rashard Clark (Los Angeles, Calif.) posting a time of 3:10.41.

The men’s 4×100 meter relay team of DeQuan Dudley (Harvey, Ill.), Reggie Kincade (Everman), Taylor, and Sanders set the school record with a gold medal time of 39.87 seconds, which is the fastest time in the nation this season.

The sprint hurdles resulted in double gold for the Lions, as Dorian Andrews (Dallas – Skyline) set a school record at 13.97 seconds for one of the top three times in the nation. Richardson won gold with a school record time of 13.65 seconds in the women’s 100-meter hurdles.

Josh Boateng (St. George’s, Grenada) won gold in the men’s discus throw at 60.12 meters, and Clark claimed gold in the men’s 400-meter dash for the second straight season at 46.43 seconds. All told, the Lions claimed 11 gold medals in the meet.

Tamara Susa (Novi Sad, Serbia) earned the bronze medal in the women’s javelin throw with a school record throw of 47.06 meters. The Lions had four silver medal finishes Saturday and five bronze medals for an additional nine podium finishes.

The Lions will now await the announcement of the field for the NCAA Division II Championships on Tuesday, May 14. The meet will be held at Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Javelina Stadium on May 23-25.

 

 

No. 7 Lions fall 3-1 to No. 3 A&M-Kingsville in LSC Championship, await regional seeding.·

KINGSVILLE– The No. 7 Texas A&M University-Commerce softball team fell 3-1 to No. 3 Texas A&M-Kingsville in the Lone Star Conference Tournament Championship game on Saturday night. After tying the game early, the Lions could not overcome the deficit.

The loss brings the Lions to 38-12 on the season after reaching the LSC Tournament Championship game for the first time in program history. The Javelinas improve to 42-8 on the year.

The Lions await their seeding in the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament. The top two seeds in the region will host a four-team double elimination tournament, and the NCAA tournament field will be announced Monday at 9 a.m. The Lions will host a Selection Show watch party at MUGS on the Square in Downtown Commerce.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE

– Katie Dean (Whitesboro) pitched a complete game, allowing just two earned runs and striking out three hitters.
– Jodie Hill (Heavener, Okla.) had a solo home run in the third inning. It was her 13th home run of the season.
– Hill was joined by Chealsea Slider (Texarkana – Texas HS), Kayla Kilcrease (Kerens), Madison Schaefer (Frisco – Independence) and Emily Otto (Richmond – Lamar Consolidated) on the LSC All-Tournament team.
– It was the first LSC Tournament Championship appearance for A&M-Commerce.

HEAD COACH RICHIE BRUISTER AFTER THE GAME

– On his team’s play: “I’m extremely proud of this team. We keep putting ourselves in situations to win championships. Kingsville was just better than us tonight. We had some things that didn’t go our way, but I was extremely proud of how our team fought. Our pitching staff kept us in the ball games. The hitters made some adjustments. Kingsville just made a great defensive play. We had a chance to go ahead. But it was fun. It was a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, we didn’t win, but I’m still excited about how our team played.”

– Looking forward to regional rankings: “I think we’ve done our job to be the second seed. It’s based on what teams have done all year. To get to the finals of the Lone Star Conference tournament, that shows you are deserving. This is the toughest region in the country. I’m looking forward to it. I’m excited for out watch party on Monday morning at Mugs. I’m excited for a great crowd to come out and to celebrate another record-breaking season. It’s hard to host. To have that opportunity to be talked about is exciting. Hopefully, we are bringing this great game to Commerce.”

HOW IT HAPPENED

Both pitchers started well as Dean pitched two strikeouts in the first inning. The Javelinas then took the lead in the second inning on a pair of singles and a groundout. A&M-Kingsville led 1-0 after two complete innings.

The Lions tied the game in the third inning as Hill smashed a pitch to left center for her 13th homer of the year. Kilcrease got a single to follow, but the offense could not bring her around.

The Javelinas regained the lead in the bottom of the third with a pair of doubles driving in a run. Another long ball was hit to right center, but Kilcrease made a diving catch, saving two runs from coming across. The Lions trailed 2-1 after three complete.

The Lions had a pair of runners reach in the fifth inning and had a deep hit into right center. However, the Javelina center fielder made a tip of the glove catch to rob the Lions of a single. The Javelinas then added a run in the bottom of the fifth to take a 3-1 lead.

The Lions were unable to get the rally they needed and lost the game.

 

 

No. 7 Lions advance to LSC Tournament Championship game for first time in program history after 2-0 win over ASU.·

KINGSVILLE– The No. 7 Texas A&M University-Commerce softball team defeated Angelo State 2-0 in the Lone Star Conference tournament semifinal game. The Lions scored runs in the fifth and sixth innings and the defense allowed just two hits.

The win brings the Lions to 38-11 on the season and they advance to the LSC Tournament Championship game for the first time in program history. The Rambelles fall to 34-20 and they are eliminated from tournament play.

The Lions await the winner of A&M-Kingsville and Tarleton to determine their opponent in the LSC Tournament Championship game. The game will be played at 7 p.m. at Vernie and Blanche Hubert Field in Kingsville.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE

– Emily Otto (Richmond – Lamar Consolidated) pitched a two-hit shutout, her 11th shutout of the season. She held ASU hitless in the final three innings.
– Madison Schaefer (Frisco – Independence) drove in the Lions first run of the game in the fifth inning. Jodie Hill (Heavener, Okla.) scored the run.
– Bri Sims (Rowlett) added to the Lion lead with an RBI single in the sixth. She drove in Ta’Lyn Moody (Mansfield – Legacy).

HEAD COACH RICHIE BRUISTER AFTER THE GAME

– On the offense coming up big late: “We weathered the storm early. Our timing was off at the plate. But I was proud of our kids. They kept battling and made adjustments. We got some people on with walks, and then we had our freshman step up with Schaefer getting the big hit. Then Bri Sims had the big hit to get us an RBI and an insurance run.”

– On the performance of Otto in the circle: “She was big time. To stay composed in a big game like this, with the score at 0-0 for five innings, she gave our offense a chance. I was really proud of what she did against a great Angelo team. She showed who she was and gave us a chance to win the ball game.”

– On the defensive performance: “The defense was outstanding. It was a shame that Slider didn’t get the gold glove, but she showed today why she should have. She made a play up the middle in the last inning that very few players can make, and she kept the tying run from coming to the plate. That keeps the momentum on our side.”

– On advancing to the LSC Championship game: “From where we’ve come as a startup program, now we find ourselves in the championship game. We had the chance to play for a regular season championship last week and have a chance to play for a tournament championship tonight. This is the best conference in the country and for us to be in it is outstanding.”

HOW IT HAPPENED

It was a slow start offensively for the Lions as they were held hitless in the first four innings of the game. Otto and the defense kept ASU off the board as well, striking out four batters in the first two innings. The Lions had a runner reach on an error and another error took her to third but the Lions could not bring her across.

The Lion defense continued to play well, holding off an ASU rally in the third inning. Otto struck out two more in the fourth inning and the game was still scoreless.

The Lions took the lead in the fifth inning. After Hill drew a walk and stole second base, she scored on a single from Schaefer to right. The Lions led 1-0 after five complete.

The Lions added to their lead in the sixth inning. Boley singled to right and was pinch run for by Moody. After a sacrifice bunt took her to second, Moody scored on a single to right from Sims. The Lions led 2-0 after six innings.

Otto held ASU without a hit in the final three innings and the Lion defense continued its excellence. Chealsea Slider (Texarkana – Texas HS) made a difficult play to her left to keep a hit from going through the middle in the seventh. A flyout to center ended the game.

 

 

Lion women and men sit in second entering final day at LSC Championships.

PORTALES, N.M. – The Texas A&M University-Commerce track and field teams sit in second place in the team standings entering the final day of action at the Lone Star Conference Championships at Eastern New Mexico University’s Greyhound Stadium.

The Lions won two gold medals, two silver medals, and three bronze medals, with two school records falling. Additionally, 23 Lions advanced to Saturday’s running finals.

Both event wins came on the women’s side, where Minna Svaerd (Karlstad, Sweden) and Brandi Stalder stood atop the podium. Svaerd won the pole vault at 3.75 meters (12-3 ½), winning the event by 10 centimeters. She was joined in the points by Kati Culpepper (Amarillo – Randall) in third place. Stalder won the 10,000-meter run at 38:43.09.

Josh Boateng (St. George’s, Grenada) put up yet another impressive performance, breaking the school shot put record which had stood since 1983. His toss of 18.70 meters (61-4 1.4) was good for the silver medal and the Grenadian national record. Joseph Brown (Mansfield) finished in third place with a collegiate personal best of 17.10 meters (56-1 ¼).

The men’s pole vault group had three competitors finish in the points, led by Wesley Culbertson (Paris – North Lamar), who won the silver medal at 5.05 meters (16-6 ¾). Robert Wood (Wylie) placed third, and Hudson Hall (Gregory-Portland) placed sixth.

The women’s heptathlon saw four Lions finish in the points, with Chelsea Cheek (Baytown – Lee) winning the silver medal with 4,715 points. Shanecia Baker (Tyler – Chapel Hill) placed fourth, Kendra Mims (Houston – Klein Forest) placed fifth, and Sarah Hogan (Gatesville) placed sixth.

In the running preliminaries, Eboni Coby set the school record in the 100-meter dash at 11.60 seconds, carrying the top seed to Saturday’s finals. Her altitude-converted time of 11.63 seconds is the fifth-best in the nation this season and best in the LSC. She is also the top seed in the 200-meter dash.

Other runners who earned the top seed in their event are Svaerd in the 400-meter hurdles and Markaaisha Richardson (Amarillo – Tascosa) in the 100-meter hurdles.

Otto earns LSC Pitcher of the Year, program-record 10 Lions bring home all-conference awards.·

KINGSVILLE– The Texas A&M University-Commerce softball team walked away with a program-record 13 awards at the annual Lone Star Conference championship banquet held Thursday. Emily Otto was named the LSC Pitcher of the Year, becoming the first Lion in history to win the honor.

Otto and third baseman Madison Schaefer was named First Team All-LSC, while outfielder Kayla Kilcrease, shortstop Chealsea Slider, and first baseman Bri Sims were named Second Team All-LSC and second baseman Jodie Hill, outfielder Vanessa Muro, designated player Kinsie Hebler, and catcher Avery Boley earned Third Team All-LSC honors. Also, Kilcrease and Ciera Nunez were named to the All-Academic team, and Otto, Kilcrease, Schaefer, and Hill all won the league’s Gold Glove at their respective positions.

After earning Second Team All-LSC honors and breaking numerous pitching records in her freshman campaign, Otto improved on her already stellar numbers during the 2019 season. The sophomore from Richmond (Lamar Consolidated) set single-season program records for wins (25), strikeouts (148), shutouts (10), and complete games (21) and led the conference and the region in wins. She was named LSC Pitcher of the Week a league-high four times and was twice named National Pitcher of the Week. She is currently a top-25 finalist for National Fastpitch Coaches Association National Player of the Year.

Otto went 25-6 on the year, leading the LSC in wins, complete games, shutouts, and innings pitched, and had a league-best 3.9-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. She finished third in the nation in wins and fifth in shutouts during the regular season. Otto held hitters to a .193 average with a 1.92 ERA and struck out 148 batters against just 38 walks. It is the second All-LSC honor of her career and her second Gold Glove.

Schaefer – a freshman from Frisco (Independence) ­– began the season in right field before jumping into her current role at third base. She flourished right off the bat, hitting .345 on the season with nine home runs, 38 runs scored, and 27 RBIs while slugging .709. Schaefer’s numbers increased as she entered conference play, hitting .389 against LSC competition. Also a factor on the defensive end at the hot corner, Schaefer had a .968 fielding percentage with 35 putouts and 55 assists and helped turn four double plays. This is the first All-LSC award of her career and her first Gold Glove.

Kilcrease– a senior from Kerens­– had an impressive senior campaign both as a defensive presence in center field and at the plate. She finished with a perfect fielding percentage, recording 81 putouts and four outfield assists. She made multiple diving catches on the year, robbing batters of hits left and right with her wide range. On offense, Kilcrease led the Lions and ranked sixth in the LSC with 46 runs scored. She hit eight homers and nine doubles with a .435 on-base percentage and hit .333 in the conference. She set career highs in hits, runs scored, doubles, homers, and steals. This is the second All-LSC award of her career and her first Gold Glove.

Sims – a senior from Rowlett – was the top RBI producer on the best-scoring offense in the LSC. She led the Lions and was fourth in the LSC with 14 home runs. She also ranked fifth in the league in walks (29), seventh in RBIs (46) and seventh in slugging percentage (.731), while also hitting .354 on the year. Sims was also a significant factor on the Lion defense at first base, recording 231 putouts and 11 assists. She was a part of 13 double plays, which ranked second in the LSC and had a .988 fielding percentage, one of the top marks for her position. Sims set career highs in hits, runs scored, home runs, RBIs, and walks. This is the first All-LSC award of her career.

Slider ­– a junior from Texarkana (Texas HS) – was lights out for the Lions, leading all shortstops in the LSC with a .985 fielding percentage. She recorded 55 putouts and 74 assists and turned five double plays, helping to anchor the top fielding defense in all of Division II. Slider hit .342 in conference games with a .430 on-base percentage and 38 hits, eight doubles, two homers, and 21 RBIs during the regular season. This is the second All-LSC award of her career.

Muro – a senior from Oak Hills, Calif. ­– was another offensive leader for the Lions, recording 43 RBIs and led the team with three grand slams. In conference games, Muro ranked third in the LSC in RBIs. She hit .327 in the regular season with 32 hits and nine home runs and had an on-base percentage of .476 and a slugging percentage of .653. No slouch on the defensive end, Muro had a perfect fielding percentage with 33 putouts. She set career highs in hits, homers, RBIs, walks, and runs scored. This is the first All-LSC award of her career.

Hill – a junior from Heavener, Okla. – led all second basemen in the LSC in fielding percentage, helping anchor the top fielding defense in the nation. She recorded 123 putouts and 51 assists and helped turn nine double plays and did not record an error in conference games. Hill also was a potent bat in the Lion lineup, recording 12 home runs, which ranked ninth in the LSC. The speedster ranked second in the LSC with 24 stolen bases and led the Lions with six go-ahead RBIs on the year. She set career highs for home runs, runs scored and stolen bases. This is the first All-LSC award of her career and her first Gold Glove.

Hebler – a junior from Cypress (Cy-Fair) – hit .347 in conference games and ranked third in league with 31 walks. She had 32 hits, seven doubles, nine home runs, and 38 RBIs. Hebler also made nine appearances in the circle, striking out 13 batters and was part of a pair of Lion shutout wins. After her grand slam in the final game of the regular season, Hebler became the program’s all-time leader in RBIs and earned the final LSC Hitter of the Week award of the season. This is the third All-LSC award of her career.

Boley­ – a freshman from Fort Worth (Nolan Catholic) ­­– burst onto the scene late in the year for the Lions, but made her impact felt immediately. She led the team with a .385 average and hit eight home runs and 28 RBIs in 27 games played. In conference games, Boley hit .450, which ranked second in the league. She also slugged a team-high .904 with a .487 on-base percentage. Behind the plate, Boley recorded 99 putouts and five assists and caught four runners stealing. This is the first All-LSC award of her career.

Nunez – a senior from Amarillo (Randall) – is on the LSC All-Academic team for the third consecutive year. Nunez became the program’s all-time leader in crossing home plate, hitting .366 during the regular season with 15 hits and has scored 18 runs this season, while also stealing six bases.

The No. 7 Lions are the second seed in the LSC Championship Tournament and have earned a bye into the semifinal round. They will return to action on Friday at 4:00 p.m., facing the winner of West Texas A&M and Angelo State, which will be played earlier in the day.
