The St. Cloud State softball team fell in the first round of the NSIC Tournament 8-4 to the University of Sioux Falls.
The Huskies got on the board quickly when Jessica Goerger singled to bring home Abby Bunnell. Sioux Falls evened the score in the top of the 3rd inning with an RBI single from Erin Scott.
The Husky offense exploded for 3 runs in the 4th inning. Kelsie Fitch hit a 2 RBI double to get things started and Veronica Wold drove in another score to put the Huskies up 4-1.
Unfortunately, the Huskies would suffer from their “one bad inning” syndrome. The Cougars would score 7 runs in the top of the 6th frame to take the 8-4 victory.
The Huskies are not yet out of the tournament (it’s double elimination) and they will play the winner of the Minnesota State-Upper Iowa matchup. First pitch for that game is set for Thursday at 4pm.
St. Cloud State Softball Wins 3 of 4 In Final Weekend Of Season; Face Sioux Falls In NSIC Tournament
04/27/2015 - 4:20 AM
The St. Cloud State softball team came into the weekend eyeing an NSIC Tournament spot. To do so they needed to win three of their four games over the weekend.
The weekend started off strong with the Huskies picking up the 3-2 victory over Minot State. Jessica Goerger hit a homer in the 4th inning to give the Huskies the win. However, the Beavers responded with three home runs in the second game of the double-header to gain the 6-5 win.
The standings were still very tight coming into Sunday’s double-header, but the Huskies knew that if they could get a sweep over the University of Mary they would assure themselves a slot in the NSIC Tournament.
St. Cloud State overwhelmed the Marauders in game one of the double-header behind a perfect game thrown by Kelly Franks. Franks pitched in all seven innings and recorded 17 strikeouts without surrendering a hit. The run support was also strong for the Huskies and they coasted to the 7-0 shutout victory.
Game two picked up right where game one left off with the Huskies getting three hits in their first three at bats to set up Jessica Goerger’s grand slam. The Husky defense only allowed four hits by the Marauders as they completed their sweep with a 5-1 victory.
St. Cloud State is the 8th seed in the NSIC Tournament and will face the University of Sioux Falls on Thursday, April 30th. First pitch is set for 10 a.m. at Sherman Park in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The St. Cloud State men’s basketball recruiting class size just doubled. Matt Reimer announced last week that the team has signed Adam Heede-Andersen of Denmark. Heede-Andersen is a 6’1 180 lbs. graduate of Stenhus Gymnasium in Denmark. He played three seasons at Stenhus and, as a three time co-captain, led his team to the final four in all three seasons.
He played a summer for the Global Squad Golden Dragons and did a post-graduate prep year at West Oaks Academy as a member of the Max My Game program in 2015.
He holds the Golden Dragon’s all-time record for assists in a game with 12 and has the 3rd most career assists (despite playing only one summer) with 96. He also led the team in steals with 25. Heede-Andersen averaged 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals per game with the Golden Dragons.
At West Oaks Academy (a prep school with a reputation for sending their students to D-I programs), Heede-Andersen became the starting point guard in the second half of the season and helped guide the team to a 40-9 overall record while playing a national schedule.
Adam’s award list includes the 2011 Vaerlfse Basketball Klub Male Person of the Year, best player in the ’96 age group of the U18 preseason tournament in Warszawa, Poland, and All-Star award at the Elite Jove summer camp in Solsona, Spain.
According to Reimer, Heede-Andersen’s international and prep school experience will help him to prepare for the competition in the NSIC.
Heede-Andersen joins St. Cloud Cathedral standout Brindley Theisen in the Huskies 2015-16 recruiting class.

The St. Cloud State softball team’s schedule got shook up a bit this past weekend. The Saturday game against Wayne State got postponed until Sunday. When they finally did take the field, Tricia DeBoer wasted no time getting the Huskies on the board. She doubled down the left field line in the 1st inning to put up two runs for St. Cloud State. Wayne State would answer with a run of its own in the bottom of the first inning.
Both teams were quiet until the 4th inning until Abby Bunnell was walked with the bases loaded to put the Huskies up 3-1. Wayne State would again answer with a run scored on a passed ball in the bottom of the fourth. However, the Huskies would hold on for the rest of the game to pick up the 3-2 victory.
Kelly Franks pitched a complete game with 9 strikeouts and just 1 walk given up. She is now 12-5 on the season.
Wayne State started off the second game on the right foot with a run in the bottom of the 1st inning to take the lead. St. Cloud State tied the game in the second inning with a sacrifice bunt leading to an unearned run from Tricia DeBoer.
Both teams again went quiet until the bottom of the 7th inning when the Wildcats knocked in the winning run with the bases loaded.
With the split the Huskies are now 24-22 on the season (10-12 NSIC) and will travel to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to play Augustana College (39-7, 20-2) on Monday. First pitch is scheduled for 12pm and 2pm. They will complete their final road trip of the season on Wednesday against Minnesota-Moorhead.

The St. Cloud State Baseball team was in action over the weekend as they were Joe Faber Field looking to defend their #2 in the country ranking. They would play host to the Southwest Minnesota State Mustangs. The first game on Friday was one for the bats as there would be a combined 6 home runs in the game, including 2 by SCSU by Mike Jurgella and Kyle Leiser. The Mustangs would jump out to a quick 4-1 lead in the top of the 3rd inning, only to have the Huskies respond with 6 of their own in the bottom of the 4th. In the top of the 5th inning, the Mustangs would add 3 more runs to tie the game at 7. Both teams would get 2 runs in the 6th and in the top of the 7th and final inning, the Mustangs would score 4 runs off Nick Denny and the Huskies suffer just their third loss of the season, 13-9.
In game 2 on Saturday, the tables turned as it had less fireworks, but still fireworks aplenty. SCSU would jump out to a quick 1-0 lead as Eric Loxtercamp would reach on an error. In the 3rd and 4th innings, Southwest would respond with 2 runs in each, but then the Husky bats came alive in the bottom of the 5th as they would score 5 and cruise to the win, 6-4, despite being outhit by Southwest.
Sunday's affairs were nothing like Saturday's in the fact that the games were moved early due to the threat of inclimate weather. Someone may have wanted to tell Southwest that as the Huskies were able to pile up 33 hits and 16 runs including a grand slam by Eric Loxtercamp. Huskies pick up 2 more wins, 12-0 and 14-6 to improve to 33-3 on the season.

The St. Cloud State softball team was coming off of two dominant victories over Minnesota Crookston (8-0 in game one, 9-0 in game two) last Wednesday and it showed in their 10-2 game one victory over the University of Sioux Falls on Saturday.
Kelly Franks had great run support in game one against the Cougars, she pitched all five innings and had 13 strikeouts before the offense snuck in 6 runs in the bottom of the 5th to gain the victory.
Game two was altogether different. The Huskies allowed runs in 5 of the 7 innings and were outhit 12-9. They fell by a final of 10-5.
Sunday brought Southwest Minnesota State to Selke Field and the Mustangs gave the Huskies more than they could handle in both games. In game one the teams traded runs until the Huskies scored 5 runs unanswered between the 2nd and 3rd innings. They lead 6-3 heading into the 4th inning, but the Mustangs bats got hot and drove in 5 scores in the inning. The Huskies would drop the game, 10-7.
In game two the Husky offense was far quieter. They drove in a run in the 3rd and 4th innings but were otherwise unable to score. The Mustangs recorded 9 runs between the 6th and 7th innings to get the 12-2 win and the sweep.
The Huskies are currently 22-20 on the season (8-10 in NSIC) and travel to face Bemidji State University tomorrow. First pitch is scheduled for 2pm and 4pm.

The St. Cloud State softball team is currently on a 5 game losing streak coming into the double header this weekend against Minnesota Crookston. The Huskies are 19-17 overall (5-7 in NSIC) and are currently ranked 9th in the NSIC in hits, doubles, and runs scored.
Minnesota Crookston enters the game with a 4-26 overall record and is still searching for an elusive first conference win (currently 0-12 in NSIC). The Golden Eagles are riding a 12 game losing streak and will also be looking for their first win on the road this year.
The Golden Eagles are a team that can really get some air under the ball. They are top ten in the conference in doubles, triples, and home runs in spite of the fact that they have fewer at bats than any NSIC team except MSU-Moorhead. However, they strike out more than any other team except Minnesota Duluth and Concordia-St. Paul.
First pitch from Selke Field is scheduled for 2pm on Wednesday with the second game of the double header beginning at 4pm.

The St. Cloud State Baseball team came into last weekend ranked 2nd in the nation with a record of 24-2. This weekend, they helped their case as one of the best teams in the nation. Friday, they hosted Wayne State College at Joe Faber Field for their home opener. Garrett Harrison pitched 6 innings, allowing 3 hits and earning 7 strikeouts. Michael Jurgella continued his strong season, belting a 3-run homerun and the Huskies would take game 1. In Game 2, Sheldon Miks would take the mound and would earn a complete game 2-hit shutout, striking out 8 batters. That, coupled with an Eric Loxtercamp home run would give the huskies a 5-0 win.
Saturday, the bats came out hot for the Huskies as they would belt out 18 runs, including a Zak Hoffman homer and 3 runs a piece by him, Brandon Arnold and Karl Sorenson. Wayne State would get the first run of the game and their only run on a Nathan Ackerman home run. The finale on Saturday would prove to be much tougher as it was a back and forth game that ended up going to extra innings. The Huskies would take a 2-0 lead on a Zach Hoffman homerun, but Wayne would take the lead in the 7th. The Huskies would tie it in the 9th inning though as Kyle Lieser would score Jackson Goplen. The game would go into extra innings where Zach Hoffman would hit a double to score Micheal Jurgella. Huskies win in a walk off 4-3 to complete the weekend sweep.

The St. Cloud State Softball team entered the weekend on a bit of a role having won 4 of their last 6 outings against NSIC opponents. However the weekend’s opponents, Upper Iowa and Winona State, would bring this momentum to a screeching halt.
The Huskies traveled to Fayette, Iowa to face the Peacocks on Friday afternoon and battled well in the first game. The Huskies found success early putting two runs on the board in the 1st inning, but the Peacock offense unleashed 4 scores in the bottom of the 3rd inning to claim the lead.
Jordin Novak laced in a two shot home run to give the Huskies a 5-4 edge heading into the bottom of the 4th inning. The Peacocks would respond with a run to even the score at 5-5 after 4.
In the 5th inning Jessica Goerger homered to right field but that is where the Husky offense finished its day. Upper Iowa would record a run in the 5th and 6th innings to gain the 7-6 win.
It was no better for the Huskies in game two as they failed to record a run and fell 8-0.
The Huskies again got off to a strong start on Saturday against Winona State, driving in 4 runs in the 1st inning. However, the Warriors would answer with a 5 run 2nd inning and for the second game in a row, St. Cloud’s offense faltered and failed to score a run after the 1st inning. They fell 6-4. Winona State would go on to take down the Huskies in game 2 as well by a final of 9-1.
The Huskies (19-17, 5-7 NSIC) have now lost 5 straight games and will next be in action against Minnesota Crookston on Wednesday at Selke Field. First pitch is slated for 2pm.

The St. Cloud State softball team hit the road on Tuesday to face Northern State University.
The teams were both scoreless heading into the 3rd inning until Alyssa Coletto doubled to left field to bring Megan Lehnen in for the score. The Huskies would extend their lead to 3-0 in the 5th inning thanks to Jessica Goerger’s two RBI base hit. St. Cloud State would hold the lead until the end of the game. Kelly Franks put on a dominant display from the mound. She pitched a complete game shutout with 9 strikeouts to lead the Huskies to a 3-0 victory in the first game. This marked the first in-conference loss for Northern State this season.
Northern State struck back at the Huskies in the second game of the double-header. The Wolves scored 3 runs in the 3rd inning and 6 runs in the 4th inning to beat the Huskies 9-0 in 5 innings. The Huskies recorded only three hits in the game as a team.
St. Cloud State is now 19-13 on the year (5-3 in NSIC) and will be back in action on Friday at Upper Iowa University (8-17, 3-1). They round out the three game road trip on Saturday at Winona State University (24-7, 6-0).
03/30/2015 - 5:00 AM
The St. Cloud State softball team had a busy weekend hosting double-headers against Concordia-St. Paul on Saturday and Minnesota State Mankato on Sunday.
The Huskies opened up with 6 unanswered runs in the first four innings of Saturday’s first game. Both teams would chalk up two more runs in the 5th and Concordia would score 3 in the 6th, but it wouldn’t be enough to catch the Huskies who went on to win 8-5.
Saturday’s second game featured far less scoring, in fact the first run came by way of a Teona Zepeda double to drive in a Kelly McKenzie run and put Concordia up 1-0. The Huskies answered in the 6th with an Alyssa Coletto sacrifice fly to bring Taige Thoreson home and with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 7th, Megan Lehnen was walked to force in the game winning run.
Saturday’s momentum continued for the Huskies against Mankato on Sunday. Alyssa Coletto would single to drive in a run for the Huskies in the 3rd inning. Emily Bransky recorded an RBI to tie the score at 1-1 after 5. Neither team would score again until (in the 8th inning) Megan Hedstrom blasted one out of the park for the win on her birthday.
Mankato did manage to get the Huskies back in game two. After going up 3-0 in the 2nd inning the Huskies allowed 6 runs to Mankato (one in the 4th, three in the 6th) and fell 6-3 to cap off the weekend.
The Huskies will next be in action on Tuesday in Aberdeen, South Dakota against Northern State University. They will be at Upper Iowa on Friday and Winona State on Saturday before returning to Selke Field on Wednesday April 8th to host Minnesota Crookston.
