Pulse-Journal Quotes:

•        Coach Hunt:  “Win or lose, that’s the best part. The bonds you build. I’ve got a lot of fond memories.”
•        Marissa Gibbs:  “I don’t look at it as being difficult. It’s just like any other at-bat, I want to get on base because I want to start the game good for us.  I know I set the tone for the game. But I don’t put any pressure on myself because that just gets me down. I just go out there and try to have fun.”
•        Coach Meier, regarding Gibbs:  “She’s really been a standout player.  She’s really athletic with a lot of speed. And now that she can switch hit, it makes her that much more of a threat.”
•        Coach Fielder:  “I think both teams are still in the process of improving our conditioning and working on fundamentals.  We’ve been busy positioning our athletes where we think they’d be most successful.  Our ultimate goal is to win our league, and I think we can compete for that this year.”
•        Joe Farrish, regarding Coach Donohoe’s instructions:  “He showed me that I tend to foul a lot to my right, that I open up too much when I throw.”
•        Coach Hunt:  “I guess this shows where we are in Cincinnati, since Ross is one of the best teams in the city.  It’s just a tough one to lose. As well as we played, we weren’t really a good baseball team in a lot of situations.”
•        AD Dave Bauer:  “We’re also starting the search for a football coach, so we’d like to get this done and move on to the next task.  We’d like to have someone in place as soon as possible, but we need to make sure we don’t rush it and make a decision too quick.”

Alumni News:

•        Following a pair of shutout victories, Indiana Wesleyan defeated University of Saint Francis (Ind.) 9-5 and completed the weekend with an 8-2 win against Calumet (Ind.) College of St. Joseph.  Sophomore Tamara Davis had 2 hits & 2 runs against Calumet; and against Saint Francis, singled to bring home a player. 

•        Sophomore Braden McMonigle (Wilmington College) cleared 6-9 to win the high jump at the All-Ohio Championship.  “Braden’s third attempt at 6-11 was close. He’s not far off from 7-feet right now,” Coach Combs said. “If he hits on all cylinders the next few weeks, I think he’s capable of going 6-11 or 7-feet.”

•        Wilmington College Baseball team posted a 5-3 win over Cedarville University.  Sophomore Jake Hofer pitches for the team. The win moves the Quakers to 6-18 on the season.
