Quick Takes: The Storm brought two tough opponents to Braggs Field and the pitching took a big hit last week. In the game Sunday, 7 home runs were hit by Saginaw Valley St. The offense was there but could not overcome the deficit that the pitching staff put upon them. Cody Blood and Aaron Lindgren paced the team with 7 RBI this week, including 2 homeruns by Lindgren. The Storm will continue the GLIAC conference play this week. Best wishes to head coach Brian McGee on his recovery following a procedure earlier last week.

Quick Takes: The Storm played 10 games this week and they dropped all 10 of them. The losing streak has been extended to 17 straight with the last win coming on March 7th. The Storm was also on the wrong side of perfection for the third time this season, with MacKenzie Boehler throwing one for Wayne State. The offense was still off but it was an improvement from last week. Jeniffer Gratz had a great week for the Storm, hitting .346 for the week. The pitching is still the problem but they are trying to build left-hander Katarina Davis into a great pitcher to compliment Ondercin and Anderson. If the defense can improve, the games could be a lot closer.

Up Next for the Storm: 4/10 @ Malone (DH at 3 PM/5 PM), 4/13 vs. Ohio Dominican (DH at 1 PM/3 PM), 4/14 vs. Tiffin (DH at 12 PM/2 PM)

Quick Takes: After a beating of Alderson-Broaddus, the Storm hosted Lindenwood on Saturday and the fans were treated to a great lacrosse game. The Storm fell down early but came back to lead at halftime and held on for a 14-13 win. Keegan Bal was named Offensive Player of the Week and Justin Goodwin was named  Defensive Player of the Week by the conference office Monday (April 8) following a 2-0 week for the Storm. Bal totaled 15 points in two games last week, scoring seven goals and assisting on eight more in a pair of Storm wins. He scored a goal and had a school single-game record seven assists as Lake Erie scored a school-record 25 goals in a 25-3 win at Alderson-Broaddus College Tuesday (April 2). Bal then scored six times and assisted on another goal as LEC rallied from a 7-2 deficit to defeat Lindenwood University 14-13 at home Saturday (April 6). During the Lindenwood game, Bal scored his 100th career goal and now has 101 for his career and is Lake Erie’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points. Goodwin totaled 12 ground balls and six caused turnovers in the two games last week. He had six ground balls in each game and picked off Lindenwood deep in LEC territory with 15 seconds remaining to secure the Storm’s 14-13 win.
