Springfield baseball team: ‘It’s our turn’

9:49 PM Saturday, Mar. 18, 2017

The Springfield High School baseball team took a step back last season, going 8-19 after finishing 15-15 the year before.

Instead of detecting some complacency in the program, he encountered a group no longer content with the status quo. “I think...
Kenton Ridge golfer realizes dream to play in college
 Kenton Ridge golfer Kacey Miller is long off the tee and has a feathery touch around the greens, but her best attribute may be her ability to shake off a bad hole. “She has a fantastic attitude,” Cougars coach Scott Ark said. “Initially, she’ll get upset, but then she’ll talk out loud and talk her way through...

Nagy wants Raiders to experience March Madness
 Wright State players, save for Illinois transfer Mike LaTulip, have never reached the NCAA tournament. They were approaching their teenage years the last time the Raiders played in the event in 2007. But first-year coach Scott Nagy can give a first-hand account of what it’s like. So can assistants Sharif Chambliss, Brian Cooley and...

Alstork named first team all-league, sets sights on conference tourney
 When Mark Alstork was named to the preseason All-Horizon League second team last October, coach Scott Nagy predicted the junior guard wouldn’t be overly thrilled with that recognition. Given the player’s confidence and competitive nature, Nagy figured he’d look at it more as a snub than a sign of respect. He was right. &ldquo...

Davis pours in 27 points a Wright State rolls in regular-season finale
 Steven Davis received a rousing ovation when he left the floor for the last time in his final home game, but the 6-foot-8 senior wasn’t satisfied. He waved his arms and cupped a hand to his ear to signal for more noise, as the crowd of 4,140 obliged. When you know you’ll never be showered with love like that again, you want to...

Back-to-back plays by Davis get crowd going and ‘change the game’
 Kyle Davis knows how to take direction. The Dayton senior guard wasn’t much of a factor through most of the St. Bonaventure game Saturday. But with the Flyers playing without their usual pep, coach Archie Miller implored his defensive-minded star to make something happen. “I started out slow, and the coach pulled me over in the...

Dayton’s ‘team of fighters’ prevails down the stretch vs. St. Bonaventure
 A sellout crowd of 13,455 may have been squirming in their seats when Dayton fell behind by 15 in the first half, and coach Archie Miller probably didn’t like having to get as animated as he did to jolt his players out of their funk. Facing big deficits, though, is nothing new for these senior-laden Flyers. They’d rather not put...

New Wright State baseball coach upbeat despite team’s youth
 The Wright State baseball team had a program-record five players selected in Major League Baseball’s 2016 draft. That’s a cause for celebration, of course. But it also means first-year coach Jeff Mercer is dealing with some major turnover going into his maiden season. The biggest voids were left by catcher Sean Murphy and shortstop...

Nagy wants Raiders to stay loose in home stretch

10:25 PM Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017

Wright State is peaking at the right time, winning six of its last eight games. But coach Scott Nagy didn’t like what he saw in practice earlier this week. His issue with his team had nothing to do with effort, though. With five Horizon League games left and so much up for grabs, Nagy believed his players were starting to feel the pressure...
Alstork leans on faith to get him through rough patch
 Being pulled from the starting lineup for two games in January shook Mark Alstork to his core. The Wright State junior guard led the nation in scoring through the first quarter of the season, and he won the first two Horizon League player-of-the-week awards. Though he knew he was slumping, he’s an ultra-competitive player who still...

Greater Dayton Rowing Association members compete in Boston
 When Troy Christian senior Megan Hinkle was persuaded to join the youth team at the Greater Dayton Rowing Association a few years ago, she knew nothing about the sport and figured at best it would help with her offseason conditioning for basketball, her first love.

Greenon race walker breaks national junior record
 Greenon High School senior Cameron Haught is such a natural race walker that he normally looks as if he’s gliding rather than expending energy as he motors around the track. But Knights cross country coach Eric Brickson saw more huffing and puffing than usual out of Haught during a 3,000-meter race a couple of weeks ago. “He gave...

South Dakota State point guard transfers to Wright State
 First-year Wright State coach Scott Nagy has had to make do with an incomplete roster this season, often bringing up how the lack of a true point guard is holding the Raiders back.

Rebounding improvement key to Wright State’s success
 Wright State charts all the usual statistics to figure out its strengths and weaknesses, but coach Scott Nagy can always tell whether his team is on the right track just by its rebounding totals.
