The first in Four

LSSU Lakers vs Ohio Dominican (NCAA)

26739984905_3baa93d905_zLocey Field-Sault Ste Marie, MI: Last weekend the Lake Superior State Lakers played their first home game in four seasons.  With our impending move, it was good to see a game, and get distracted from life.  It was a little cool, as it usually is up here, but the sun was shining and the field was in good shape.

In game one, Riley Durbano took the loss in the circle, pitching all seven innings and striking out two.  The Lakers were led offensively by Katey Hendershott who went 2-3. Lindsay Pajot added a double, Taylor Steinhelper had a single, stolen base, and run scored, while Teryn Williams and Carly Banchiu added an RBI each. Lake Superior scored three runs in the first inning, but couldn’t push anything else across after that.  FINAL Game 1: LSSU 3, ODU 6.

Kylie Durre drove in Hendershott for the other Laker run. Freshman Alyssa Thayer pitched a complete three strikeout game in the loss. FINAL Game 2: LSSU 3, ODU 7.

Little League Day at LSSU

21676960935_82470be24c_zLocey Field-Sault Ste. Marie, MI: On Wednesday night, the Lake Superior State Lakers softball team hosted Little League Day. The team invited the kids to watch one of their practices, and they were able to hang out in the dugout with the girls. After practice, the Lakers brought the kids onto the field for some fun and games. Brian did great in the throwing and running the bases competition. Then they played some catch, and Brian did some hitting in the cage with his favorite player. This was a really nice thing for the Laker Softball team to do for the Little Leaguers, I just wish that more kids would have showed up to participate.

The Lakers were giving out team posters that all the girls signed for the kids. Brian was really happy that the Laker mascot Seamore the Seaduck showed up to entertain his fans, also. We ate well, and the girls are always to nice to Brian and all of the other kids that showed up. It was a nice way to officially end our season, and for the Lakers to begin theirs.

 

Brian being silly with Seamore!
