first_img Meghan Toney hit .500 (5-for-10) and stole three more bases in the season’s first GSC series. Through 12 games, she leads the league in hitting (.615) and on-base percentage (.643), and she ranks in the top five in hits (24) and stolen bases (8). In addition to her efforts with the bat, Toney moved into the UWF record books by being hit by a pitch for the 10th time in her career at the Gulf Coast Invitational. That ranks her 10th in program history in times hit by pitch. ***FULL PDF NOTES*** Sass, Man Who is Valdosta State? It was a clean sweep over the Lady Blazers in the regular season for UWF last year, winning 5-0, 3-2, and 4-3 at the UWF Softball Complex. Valdosta State got the better of West Florida twice in the GSC Tournament before falling 19-9 in a five-inning loss to eventual national champions North Alabama, but UWF extended revenge on VSU in the NCAA Tournament with a 6-2 win to end the Blazers season in Valdosta. West Florida was firing on all cylinders against Valdosta State last year, with a .311 team batting average in six games. Meghan Toney and Caitlin Steel led the way offensively, with Toney’s .474 average, 9 hits and 8 RBI leading the team. The pitching put together a 2.21 ERA, with Becca Taylor posting a 2.04 ERA in 24 innings. West Florida got off to a bit of a slow start in GSC play last weekend, going 1-2 against Mississippi College. The Argos will have a great opportunity to make up for that over the next three weekends, however, with series against No. 6 Valdosta State, No. 24 North Alabama and No. 19 UAH. 2016 marked UWF’s highest winning percentage in conference play (.697) since 2006, when the team went 22-9 (.710). The Argonauts have historically been one of the strongest teams in the conference, holding the third-most wins in GSC history (383) and the fourth-best winning percentage (.668) in conference play, out of 21 current and former member institutions. Kathleen Smiley tore up GSC pitching as a freshman last season. The Pensacola native led the team in batting (.367), OBP (.451), slugging (.561), home runs (4), RBI (32), and total bases (55), while totaling 14 walks and just 8 strikeouts. She homered in Saturday’s conference opener and is slugging .667 in conference play through three games. Valdosta State University has a bit of interesting history behind it, dating back to its inception in 1913. It began as South Georgia State Normal College, a two-year school that was an option for female students, because the University of Georgia permitted only men at that time. SGSNC started as a two-year teaching college, and became a four-year school in 1922, taking the name Georgia State Women’s College. The school began admitting men in 1950 and became Valdosta State College, and it finally became Valdosta State University in 1993. State senator William Stanley West was instrumental in starting the university. On the diamond, VSU won the 2012 NCAA DII Softball Championship, with a 4-1 win over UC San Diego. That team featured 2012 GSC Player and Freshman of the Year Courtney Albritton, as well as Samantha Posey, sister of San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. VSU jumped to No. 6 in the national rankings this week, after starting conference play with a sweep over Christian Brothers, in which the Lady Blazers averaged 14 runs per game, and splitting with Florida Tech on Wednesday. Offense has been the major highlight for VSU, as the team leads the GSC in virtually every offensive category. The pitching has been a bit of a different story since VSU lost two-time GSC Pitcher of the Year Caitlyn Calhoun, who graduated at the end of last season. VSU ranks seventh in the GSC in ERA (3.40) and eighth in opponent batting average (.294). Jessica Mohl and Chelsea Canara are each hitting better than .500 on the year, so those will be two Blazers to watch out for. Mohl is the reigning GSC Player of the Week and Canara was a first-team selection last year. Through three weeks of action, UWF is near the top of the conference standings in hitting (.374, 2nd), on-base percentage (.422, 2nd), slugging (.507, 2nd) and strikeout percentage (9%, 4th). We Played VSU a Lot Last Yearcenter_img Rhiannon Sassman has picked up right where she left off in last season’s freshman campaign that saw her bring home first team NFCA All-American honors. She leads UWF with 15 runs scored, 2 triples, 31 total bases and a .721 slugging percentage through the first 12 games of the year, and her .442 average is the second highest on the team. She has at least one hit in each of her last five games and has reached base in every game this season, with seven multi-hit games on the year. Sassman went 5-11 against Mississippi College last weekend with a double, a triple and three runs scored. Conference Play Continues #ARGOS#Print Friendly Version PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida softball team will continue Gulf South Conference play this weekend with a series at No. 6 Valdosta State. UWF is 9-3 on the year with a 1-2 mark in conference action. Oh Dang, Meghan Toney Saturday’s doubleheader is scheduled for a 2 pm ET start, and the Sunday series finale will begin at 1 pm ET. All three games will be expected to have an audio broadcast and live stats, and links for each will be available on Some Valdosta State History Wow, We Are Good at Hittinglast_img read more

first_img After the game Torres gave his shirt to Manuel Brinas, jumping into the stands to find him. This was the man who was responsible for hiring the No 9 in his youth. Brinas founded Atletico’s youth football school in the 1970s and now works in the organiation of ball boys on match days.  After 19 games without a goal, since he last scored on September 19 – against Eibar as well – he turned home Luciano Vietto’s cross from close range. Upd. at 19:37 06/02/2016 He then spoke to the media, saying: “I have grown up here, I was in the stand like them. I grew up here. I used to go in the stands like them. This will go down in history and I’ll never forget it.” His first came 14 years and eight months ago, on June 3 in 2011 against Albacete. CET Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres scored his 100th goal in the 90th minute, helping his side win 3-1 over Eibar. Sport ENlast_img read more
