FEATURED TEAM OF THE WEEK

Northern Michigan University

Marquette, MI

Mascot: Wildcats

“Our team is made-up of a great group of talented girls who enjoy having fun playing the game they love. The team is mostly made-up of outfielders and we have 5 pitchers, but most of our players have the talent to step up and work on positions that were lacking.”
Fun Fact: Our team usually participates in a haunted hayride fundraiser where we can work together to create a scary scene, however it was cancelled this year due to covid.

RECAP from LSSU: “ADRIAN – The Lake Superior State club softball team played a three-game rematch at Adrian Saturday and again swept the series, 15-2, 23-6, 13-10.

The Lakers (6-0), who also swept a home series against Adrian on Sept. 26-27, again exploded for 39 hits, including eight for extra bases. Freshman third baseman Kassidy Bell was a team-leading 7-of-12 with three doubles and six RBI. Senior outfielder Dani Cole was 6-of-8 with four RBI and four walks. Bell and Cole scored a combined 13 runs.
LSSU, trailing 10-9 through six innings of Game 3, rallied for four runs on two hits in the top of the seventh, including a three-run homer by freshman first baseman/outfielder Maysain Sherlund. Sophomore second baseman Claire Adkinson also scored on a sacrifice fly by senior pitcher/third baseman Kennedy Kunnert.
Kunnert was the starter and one of three Laker pitchers to appear in Game 3. She also relieved in the seventh and pulled out the save thanks to big defensive plays by Adkinson, senior shortstop Shelby Fellabaum and senior first baseman Amanda Menominee.
“The seventh inning rally was definitely the highlight of the day,” LSSU coach Linda Bouvet said. “Our chemistry showed, and our hitting was solid throughout the order. I hope we can continue that attack next week at Michigan State, where we’ll really get tested.”
Kunnert and Amanda Menominee were both 6-for-11 at the plate, and senior pitcher/center Fielder Ashley Menominee and Fellabaum were 4-for-10. Adkinson, sophomore catcher Alannah Renico and Sherlund added two hits each.
Ashley Menominee went the distance in Game 1 and earned the pitching win by totaling eight strikeouts, three hits, one earned run and no walks. She appeared in all three games, adding three strikeouts, two walks and eight hits to her totals.
Amanda Menominee picked up the Game 2 win and appeared in the middle of Game 3. She totaled one strikeout, no walks, eight hits and three earned runs through 5 1/3 innings. Kunnert was the Game 3 starter and reliever, and finished with one strikeout, two walks, three hits and two earned runs during four innings of work.
The Lakers close the fall portion of their season with three non-conference exhibition games against MSU beginning at noon Saturday at Rainey Park in East Lansing.”

VAST MAJORITY OF 2020-2021 NCSA SEASON TO BE SPRING ONLY

The NCSA has surveyed our member teams regarding the possibility of playing fall conference games due to COVID-19 restrictions.  We have heard from approximately 90% of the NCSA membership and only 7 teams have reported that they are allowed to compete this fall in some capacity.  Given this  information, we will look to schedule them games this fall. For the rest of our teams, the 2020-2021 season will be SPRING ONLY.  That being said, we are going to be delaying the scheduling of the spring only conference games till later this fall.  We will be reaching out to our teams again in late October to reevaluate everyone’s status regarding spring competition with the goal of releasing the spring schedules by the end of November.  This goal may change based upon the results of our October evaluations.

During this time we will continue to recruit new teams to join the NCSA for spring participation as we have had several teams reach out with their interest in being added to the spring only conference schedules for the 2020-2021 season.
