The GC Men wrapped up a very strong 2014 campaign with a 5-0 defeat of Webster University, in the SLIAC Conference 3rd place match. The day before, the Panthers fell just short of reaching the championship match by losing a hard fought 5-4 match, at the hands of the Westminster College Bluejays.
The Lady Panthers battled in a couple of pitcher’s duels Tuesday evening against the Rose Hulman Fighting Engineers. Senior pitcher Ashley Woodrome started and completed both games which were decided by one run each, and had two brilliant performances leading the Panthers to a 2-1 victory in the first game, and a 1-0 victory in the second game.
The Lady Panthers lost both games in the double header against Fontbonne this past Saturday. Prior to this weekend’s losses the Panthers had been riding an eight game winning streak, capitalized by six straight conference wins. Unfortunately in the midst of this hot streak, the infamously crazy Midwest weather put the Panthers momentum on a halt when they had to postpone Thursday’s double header against Principia.
This past weekend the Panthers took two out of three games against Fontbonne, claiming another series win against a fellow SLIAC team. The Panthers started the series in fine fashion on Friday at home, defeating the Griffins 14-7. However, the ball game was not the pounding that the final score suggests. In an otherwise solid first inning from starting pitcher Dylan Bone, an infield error caused an unearned run to score. As walks piled up for the Griffins they were able to score five more runs in the next two innings, going up 6-0 before the Panthers chance to bat in the third.
Report- In midst of the new challenge plays in major league baseball, Commissioner Bud Selig has now confirmed that managers will have the ability to debate ball and strike calls throughout the game. In such a case, the confronting manager will ask the home plate umpire for a replay review. Both managers will then take out the folding table and chairs tucked in the backstop behind home plate, sit down, and have a debate on whether or not the pitch was a ball or strike.
s Doug Faulkner moves towards the position of Dean and Associate Professor, his role as Athletic Director was left open with massive shoes needing to be filled. Fortunately, Kent Krober will be returning to the Greenville Campus to become the new Athletic Director, in hopes that he will be able to fill the void left by Faulkner. Papyrus Sports Section Editor Joseph Hubbs was able to sit down with the new director and talk with him about what he sees for the future of the sports and how he feels about Greenville College as a whole.
This past week the Lady Panthers won one of two games as they began to wrap up the final touches of their season. On Wednesday the Ladies suffered a loss to Webster as they could not overcome a poor shooting first half. Senior, Emily Gundy kept the Panthers alive, converting on four of her five first half field goals, including two three pointers.
The Lady Panthers are coming off of a split week losing to Westminster on Wednesday and securing a win against Blackburn on Saturday. The week started off a bit grisly as the ladies fought on the road.
Michael Sam- Big Gay News. No really, Michael Sam, defensive end out of Missouri recently told ESPN that he is a “proud gay man.” As expected, the media is blowing this whole ordeal out of proportion just as they did with Jason Collins last year. Collins made headlines last year by being the first active player in any of the four major sports to be openly gay, and has still not found work in the NBA since then. The difference between Collins and Sam though is that Sam is actually really good.
