4/12/15 – Saint Joseph’s Sweeps Mount Ida, 9-0 & 4-1

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (19-5, 11-3 GNAC) won a pair of games versus Mount Ida College (5-19, 5-10 GNAC) in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) softball doubleheader at Richard W. Bailey Field on Sunday afternoon. The Monks won the opener, 9-0, and completed the sweep with a 4-1 victory in the closing contest.

Today's doubleheader was originally scheduled to take place at Mount Ida’s home field, but the Mustangs’ diamond remains unplayable, so the coaches agreed upon a change in venue. As a result, the Monks played as the away team at Bailey Field.

GAME ONE - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... s/ida1.htm
The Monks scored all of their runs in two different innings with four in the third and five in the seventh. As it played out, Saint Josephs’ starting pitcher Laura Jordan (Orrington, Maine) did not require much offense to pick up her third win of the season, as the senior hurler allowed just four hits and a walk with five strikeouts during seven shutout innings.
In the third, sophomore catcher Jennifer Murphy (Andover, Mass.) recorded a two-run double and junior Megen Pollini (Wolfeboro, N.H.) and sophomore shortstop Mariah Harrison (Buxton, Maine) both rapped RBI singles to help the Royal Blue secure a 4-0 cushion.

St. Joe’s extended the lead to 9-0 with five runs off four hits and a Mount Ida error in the seventh. Senior right fielder Victoria Ramos (North Scituate, R.I.) and senior third baseman Kim Jordan (Bangor, Maine) notched RBI singles, junior second baseman Alyssa Wade (Peru, Maine) worked a bases-loaded walk, and sophomore center fielder Carla Tripp (Lovell, Maine) reached on an infield error, a miscue that allowed a pair of runs to cross the plate.

Pollini went 3-3 with a run and an RBI and Murphy was 2-3 with two runs and a pair of RBI in the victory.

Mustangs sophomore starter Nicole Handzel (Palmer, Mass.) suffered the loss after allowing four runs off six hits and four walks with 7 K’s over six innings while freshman Hayley Microulis (Pawtucket, R.I.) gave up five runs (three earned) off four hits and a pair of walks in one inning of relief.

GAME TWO - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... s/ida2.htm
The Monks did not open the game scoring until the top of the fourth, when Harrison stepped to the plate with two out and two on and ripped a two-run double to left-center.
The Mustangs responded with a run off two hits in the bottom of the fourth, when sophomore Lucianna Medici (Rivierside, R.I.) led off with a single up the middle and later scored on a base hit by Microulis, making it a 2-1 game through four.

Saint Joseph’s tacked on a pair of insurance runs off four hits and an error in the top of the fifth, when junior first baseman Melissa Mayhew (Hiram, Maine) plated Kim Jordan with a two-bagger to left-center and scored when the following batter, senior Theresa Hendrix (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus), roped another double to left-center, accounting for the 4-1 final.

Jordan, Murphy and Pollini all went 2-4 with a run in the victory while sophomore pitcher Kylie McFadden (Somersworth, N.H.) allowed a run off four hits with six punch outs in a complete-game effort.

Sophomore pitcher Kaitlyn Muhlenforth (Bohemia, N.Y.) took the loss for the Mustangs after yielding four runs (three earned) off 11 hits and a walk with one strikeout over seven frames.

With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 17-0 all-time versus Mount Ida College.
Saint Joseph’s travels to University of Saint Joseph (CT) on Tuesday for a conference doubleheader starting at 3:00 PM while Mount Ida hosts Emmanuel College tomorrow in a GNAC twinbill that starts at 3:00 PM.

4/15/15 – Saint Joseph’s Sweeps Anna Maria, 10-2 & 4-0

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (21-7, 13-5 GNAC) swept Anna Maria College (3-22, 1-16 GNAC) in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) softball doubleheader at Richard W. Bailey Field on Wednesday afternoon. The Monks routed the AMCATS, 10-2 in five innings, in the opener and recorded a 4-0 shutout in the nightcap to complete the sweep. Sophomore pitcher Kyle McFadden (Somersworth, N.H.) tossed a one-hitter with five strikeouts in the game-two triumph.

GAME ONE - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... s/amn1.htm
Leading 4-2 through two-and-a-half innings, the Monks rattled off six unanswered runs to earn their first mercy-rule victory since the Royal Blue toppled Rockford College, 13-5, in Fort Myers on March 13th.

Saint Joseph’s grabbed an early lead with two runs off a pair of hits and an Anna Maria error in the bottom of the first, when senior third baseman Kim Jordan (Bangor, Maine) launched her third home run of the season, a solo blast, and senior Theresa Hendrix (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus) tripled and scored on a misplayed ball in the outfield. Both runs crossed the plate with two out.

The AMCATS cut their deficit in half in the top of the second, when sophomore Amy Clement (Townsend, Mass.) doubled and later scored on an Elizabeth Haggerty (Charlton, Mass.) base hit. The Monks responded with two more runs in the bottom of the inning, when freshmen Allie Pike (Buxton, Maine) and Alyssah Dennett (Augusta, Maine) notched RBI doubles to make it a 4-1 game.

The conference counterparts both scored a single run in the third, when AMCATS freshman Shannon Latour (Millbury, Mass.), a pinch runner, stole second and raced home on an infield error and SJC junior outfielder Megen Pollini (Wolfeboro, N.H.) plated Hendrix, who reached via base hit, with a single up the middle.

In the bottom of the fourth, Saint Joseph’s plated five runs off three hits and a pair of Anna Maria miscues to secure a 10-2 cushion. The big blow of the inning came off the bat of Hendrix, who drove a three-run jack over the right-center fence. Pollini knocked in Melissa Mayhew (Hiram, Maine) with a sac fly to right and sophomore catcher Jennifer Murphy (Andover, Mass.), who reached with a walk, scored when freshman Kelsy Gaddy (Limington, Maine) reached on an infield error.

Hendrix led the Monks’ offense by going 3-3 with three runs, a triple, a home run and three RBI while Pollini was 2-2 with a pair of RBI in the lopsided triumph. Senior pitcher Laura Jordan (Orrington, Maine) picked up her fourth win of the season after allowing two runs (one earned) off seven hits and a walk with four K’s in four innings. Freshman hurler Abigail Murphy (Randolph, Mass.) allowed one hit in an inning of relief.

For the AMCATS, sophomore Kaitlyn Moran (Leicester, Mass.) was 3-3 and Haggerty went 2-3 with a triple and an RBI. Senior pitcher Nichole Lowe (Saugus, Mass.) took the loss after giving up eight runs (six earned) on nine hits and a walk with a pair of punch-outs in 3.1 innings while sophomore Alexis Romano (Lowell, Mass.) yielded two runs (one earned) off a hit and a walk with a strikeout in 0.2 innings of relief.

GAME TWO - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... s/amn2.htm
The closing contest featured a completely different tone, as McFadden sat 13 consecutive batters before allowing a baserunner. The perfect-game effort was dashed with one out in the top of the fifth, when Clement lofted a 1-2 pitch to left for what turned out to be the AMCATS’ only hit in a 4-0 loss.

Saint Joseph’s recorded a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, when Jordan knocked in sophomore center fielder Carla Tripp (Lovell, Maine), who led off with a double to left and scored on a Mayhew base knock to center.

The Monks doubled their lead in the bottom of the third, providing McFadden with what turned out to be unnecessary breathing room. Jordan opened the frame with a single to left, stole second, and sprinted home on a Hendrix double to deep center field. Mayhew promptly plated Hendrix with a single to center, making it a 4-0 game through three innings.

Unfazed by losing the perfect game bid in the fifth, McFadden went on to retire eight straight AMCAT batters to complete the one-hitter.

The Monks featured five repeat-hitters in the victory, as Hendrix was 2-3 with a run, two doubles and an RBI, Mayhew went 2-4 with a pair of RBI, Jordan was 2-4 with two runs, an RBI and a solo homer, Tripp went 2-4 with a run and a double, and freshman catcher Katherine Collette (Rumford, Maine) added a pair of hits, including a two-bagger, in three trips to the plate.

McFadden tossed just 62 pitches – 48 for strikes – over seven innings in a contest that required barely 60 minutes to complete.

Anna Maria junior pitcher Angela Vousboukis (Swampscott, Mass.) took the loss after allowing four runs off 11 hits and a pair of walks with four K’s in six innings.
With the sweep, Saint Joseph’s improves to 8-1 in the history of the series with Anna Maria College.

Saint Joseph’s will play at University of Southern Maine tomorrow in a non-conference doubleheader scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM. Anna Maria resumes play with a GNAC twinbill at Simmons College starting at 3:00 PM.

4/18/15 – Rams Salvage GNAC Split with Monks

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (23-9, 14-6 GNAC) and Suffolk University (23-9, 17-5 GNAC) split a GNAC softball twinbill at Richard W. Bailey Field on Saturday afternoon. The Monks rallied from a 3-0 deficit to secure a 10-3 win in the opener but fell by a 5-3 margin in the nightcap.

GAME ONE - http://gomonks.com/sports/sball/2014-15/files/sufs1.htm http://gomonks.com/sports/sball/2014-15/files/sufs1.htm

Saint Joseph’s junior starter Erica Boulanger (Somersworth, N.H.) was perfect through three innings but hit a snag in the fourth, when freshman Devlin Frost (Tewksbury, Mass.) led off with a triple and sophomore Kristen Young (Windsor, Conn.) followed with a bunt single, setting the stage for freshman Delaney Sylvester (Worcester, Mass.), who plated both of her teammates with a double down the left field line. Sylvester, who moved to third on a groundout, notched the Rams’ third run of the frame when sophomore Lindsay Pagano (Wyckoff, N.J.) hit a sac fly to left.

With runners on first and second and two out in the bottom of the fourth, the Monks managed to tie the game on one swing, as freshman second baseman Kelsy Gaddy (Limington, Maine) hit a line drive over the center field fence, making it a 3-3 game through four full frames.

Saint Joseph’s worked out of a major jam in the sixth, when senior Theresa Hendrix (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus) loaded the bases on a pair of singles and a walk with two down, but the fourth-year standout wiggled out of the difficult spot by fanning Paige Kawai (Aica, Hawaii) with a backwards K.

With momentum now on their side, the Monks managed to put the game away with seven runs off eight hits and a Suffolk error in the sixth. Sophomore shortstop Mariah Harrison (Buxton, Maine) plated a pair with a single and Hendrix drove in two with a triple to left while sophomore center fielder Carla Tripp (Lovell, Maine), junior first baseman Melissa Mayhew (Hiram, Maine) and senior third baseman Kim Jordan (Bangor, Maine) produced run-scoring singles during the game-changing inning.

For the Monks, Harrison, Hendrix, Mayhew, Gaddy and sophomore catcher Jennifer Murphy (Andover, Mass.) totaled two hits apiece while Hendrix picked up her third win of the season after tossing two innings of three-hit ball with a walk and a strikeout. Boulanger did not factor into the decision after allowing three runs off five hits and a pair of walks with two K’s in five innings of work.
For the Rams, Young was 2-3 with a run and a stolen base and senior third baseman Nicole Rosa (Wallingford, Conn.) was 2-4 while freshman starting pitcher Ali Yamakaitis (Avenel, N.J.) took the loss after giving up eight runs (five earned) on 10 hits and a pair of free passes with two K’s over 5.1 innings. Senior Sarah Chasse (Salem, Mass.) gave up two runs off four hits in 0.2 innings of relief in the loss.

GAME TWO - http://gomonks.com/sports/sball/2014-15/files/sufs2.htm

The Rams flipped the script on the Monks in the nightcap, as the visitors negated an early 3-0 deficit with two runs in the second and three in the fourth to earn an important GNAC split.
The Monks seemed to take control of the closing contest by scoring three runs off two hits and a Suffolk miscue in the bottom of the first, when Hendrix plated a pair with a double to center and later scored on a misplayed ball in the infield, but the Rams closed the gap with a two-run homer off the bat of freshman Morgan Parmeter (Maynard, Mass.) in the top of the second.

The Rams went on to take the lead for good with three runs off three hits and a SJC error in the fourth, when Parmeter, Sara Middleton (Otis, Mass.) and Frost recorded run-scoring base hits.

Saint Joseph’s had opportunities to at least chip away at the Suffolk lead in both the fifth and sixth innings. St. Joe’s had the bases loaded with two down in the fifth and had runners on second and third in the sixth, but could not break through on either occasion.
For the Monks, Tripp, Jordan and Hendrix registered two hits apiece while sophomore starter Danielle Egan (Waterboro, Maine) fell to 3-3 on the year after yielding five runs (zero earned) off five hits and two walks with a pair of K’s in 3.2 innings. Hendrix allowed three hits and two walks with a strikeout in 3.1 frames of relief.

For the Rams, Parmeter went 2-3 with two runs, a double, a homer and three RBI and junior Meredith Ball (Nahant, Mass.) was 2-3 with a run scored. Freshman pitcher Kathleen Slavin (Rocky Hill, Conn.) picked up the win after giving up three runs (two earned) off eight hits and eight walks with three punch outs in six innings while Yamakaitis earned her third save of the season after allowing a hit with a strikeout in the bottom of the seventh.

Saint Joseph’s will host Rivier University in a GNAC doubleheader tomorrow with first pitch slated for 1:00 PM. Suffolk will play a pair at Curry College in a 3:30 PM start on Wednesday.

4/19/15 – Softball Sweeps on Senior Day

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (25-9, 16-6 GNAC) finished off the 2015 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) docket with a pair of wins over Rivier University (14-20, 5-17 GNAC) at Richard W. Bailey Field on Sunday afternoon. The Monks opened the day with a 10-2 mercy-rule win and capped the twinbill with an 8-7 victory over the Raiders.

With the sweep and all results in for the remainder of the conference, Saint Joseph’s – winners of the last four GNAC Championships – has earned the #3 seed in the upcoming GNAC Tournament, which begins with a play-in game, featuring the 5-8 seeds, on Tuesday. The Monks begin postseason play with a quarterfinal contest, opponent TBD, at Albertus Magnus College on Friday afternoon. The remainder of the tournament will be hosted by top-seeded Suffolk University, site TBD, on Saturday and Sunday.
Prior to the start of today’s doubleheader, a brief ceremony was held to honor the program’s four seniors: Theresa Hendrix (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus), Kim Jordan (Bangor, Maine), Laura Jordan (Orrington, Maine) and Victoria Ramos (North Scituate, R.I.). This group has helped the Monks post a 126-37 (.773) record, including a 77-17 (.819) mark in GNAC play, with three GNAC Championships and a trio of NCAA Tournament appearances over the past four seasons and figure to challenge for a fourth conference crown next weekend.

GAME ONE - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... 9_vgzl.xml

The Monks kicked off the day’s scoring with four runs in the bottom of the first, when Hendrix roped a two-run triple to deep center and scored on an errant throw while sliding into third base and freshman Kelsy Gaddy (Limington, Maine) lofted a sac fly to right field, sending junior first baseman Melissa Mayhew (Hiram, Maine) home.
St. Joe’s tacked on a run with the help of an error in the third and doubled up on a Rivier run in the top of the fourth with a pair in the bottom of the frame, as Hendrix doubled in Carla Tripp (Lovell, Maine) and later scored on a Mayhew single to left-center, making it a 7-1 game through four full frames.

The Raiders showed life with a run on a Tori Dugan (Norwalk, Conn.) single in the sixth, but Saint Joseph’s went on to score three in the bottom of the inning to earn a mercy-rule triumph. Kim Jordan plated Tripp with a double and later scored, along with Hendrix, on a Mayhew base hit up the middle to account for the 10-2 final.
For the Monks, Hendrix was 3-4 with four runs, a pair of doubles, a triple and three RBI, Mayhew went 3-3 with a run and three RBI, and junior left fielder Megen Pollini (Wolfeboro, N.H.) added a pair of singles in three at bats in the victory. Tripp registered three walks and scored three runs in the opener. Hendrix picked up the win in the circle and improved to 4-1 on the year after allowing two runs off five hits and four walks with seven K’s in six innings.

Junior pitcher Libby Sammon (Rockland, Mass.) suffered the loss for the Raiders after yielding seven runs (four earned) off six hits and five walks with a strikeout over four innings while junior Jess Shanahan (Merrimack, N.H.) allowed three runs off three hits and a walk with a punch-out in 1.1 innings of relief.

GAME TWO - http://www.gomonks.com/sports/sball/201 ... 9_jh8f.xml

The closing contest had a very different feel, as the Raiders scored six runs off 11 hits over the first four innings and held a 6-3 lead going into the bottom of the fourth.
Rivier produced three runs off four hits in the second, when junior Lia Bobek (Hollis, N.H.) plated a pair with a single and scored when the following batter, Dugan, ripped a two-bagger.

The Monks and Raiders traded runs in their next turns at the plate, as junior second baseman Alyssa Wade (Peru, Maine) sent sophomore catcher Jennifer Murphy (Andover, Mass.) home with a single in the bottom of the second and freshman Emily Knoops (Tewksbury, Mass.) doubled home junior Kathryn Mostone (Pelham, N.H.) in the top of the third.

Pollini dropped down a successful squeeze bunt to score Jordan and make it a 4-3 game through three frames, but the Raiders earned a 6-3 cushion after Dugan doubled in Bobek and later scored on a single by sophomore Shaylyn Freitas (Pelham, N.H.).

The outlook was bleak as Rivier junior pitcher Taylor Miller (Haverhill, Mass.) sat the first two hitters she faced in the bottom of the fourth, but freshman Allie Pike (Buxton, Maine) ignited a rally with a two-out single up the middle and quickly scored when Jordan belted a triple off the wall in center. Hendrix knocked in her classmate with a single to right and, after stealing second base, scored the game-tying run when Mayhew singled to left.
The Raiders regained the lead with a run off three hits with two down in the top of the fifth, when sophomore Destiny Jordan (Lawrence, Mass.) singled, stole second, and raced home on a Bobek base hit to left-center. With runners on second and third and two out, freshly-entered reliever Danielle Egan (Waterboro, Maine) struck out junior Sam Verney (Goffstown, N.H.) to negate the threat.

Saint Joseph’s proceeded to score two runs off a pair of hits and a Rivier error to claim an 8-7 lead in the bottom of the fifth. With runners on first and second and nobody out, Tripp singled in Wade and advanced 60 feet, along with Ramos, on a throwing error in the infield. Freshman reliever Jordan Parece (Pelham, N.H.) looked to work out of the jam by fanning Gaddy and forcing Jordan to pop out to short, but Hendrix and Mayhew followed with back-to-back walks, with the latter free pass coming with the bases loaded, allowing Ramos to trot home with the eventual winning run.

Murphy paced the SJC offensive attack by going 3-4 with a run and a double while Jordan was 2-4 with two runs, a triple and a pair of RBI and Wade went 2-4 with a run and an RBI. Egan improved to 4-3 on the season after tossing 2.1 innings of one-hit relief with four strikeouts.

For the Raiders, Dugan was 4-4 with a run, two doubles and two RBI, Bobek went 3-3 with a pair of runs, a triple and three RBI, Jordan was 2-4 with two runs and a two-bagger, and Knoops added two hits, a run, a double and an RBI in four at bats in the losing bid. Parace took the loss after giving up two runs off two hits and three walks with a strikeout in two innings of relief.

Saint Joseph’s will travel to Biddeford, Maine on Tuesday for a non-conference doubleheader versus University of New England. First pitch is slated for 3:00 PM. The Raiders have completed their 2015 schedule.

5/7/15 - Hendrix Earns Capital One Academic All-District® Softball Honors

STANDISH, Maine - The 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District® Softball Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), have been released and Saint Joseph’s College senior Theresa Hendrix (Scarborough, Maine/Cheverus) has collected NCAA DIII District 1 All-Academic honors.

Hendrix, a team captain who logged time in the outfield, in the circle and at shortstop as a senior, is now eligible for even higher academic honors as All-District recipients advance to the Capital One Academic Team ballot, where first, second and third team members will be selected later this month. Hendrix is the third Saint Joseph’s College softball player to earn All-District acclaim, as she joins former teammate Danyelle Shufelt ’13 and Alyssa Dunn ’11 on the short list of honorees.

A three-sport athlete who also played field hockey and basketball while attending Physical Education courses at Saint Joseph’s, Hendrix wrapped up her collegiate career this spring having played in a grand total of 314 games over 12 seasons. She helped her three teams post a collective 246-96 (.719) overall record with a 142-32 (.816) mark in conference play with four Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Championships and subsequent NCAA Tournament appearances during her time on the field and the court.

As a standout on the softball diamond, Hendrix enjoyed a career-year in her final season, hitting.417 (50-120) with 40 runs, 13 doubles, six triples, six home runs and 11 stolen bases while starting all 40 of the Monks' games. She was also one of the team's top pitchers and led the SJC staff in ERA (1.92), wins (7), appearances (15), strikeouts (39) and opponents' batting average (.211). Hendrix led the GNAC in runs, total bases (93), walks (24) and slugging percentage (.775), ranked second in doubles and triples, and third in home runs and RBI.

Hendrix capped her collegiate career with a .391 (195-499) batting average while totaling 135 runs, 51 doubles, 21 triples, 16 homers, 139 RBI and 21 stolen bases in as many attempts over 168 games. She is the program's all-time triples leader and ranks second in team history in home runs, slugging (.673), total bases (336) and extra-base hits (88), third in doubles, RBI and OPS (1.131), and fourth in hits.

She earned All-Conference honors all four years as a member of the Monks’ softball team and the high academic award brings her career accolade total to 35, with nine academic honors, five All-Conference awards, a pair of regional awards and five postseason honors, including GNAC Tournament Most Valuable Player acclaim in 2012.
Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.

The Academic All-District ® teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the fourth year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America ® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.

The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2014-15 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.

First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month and in early June.
