Former North coach takes the Wildcats softball challenge

8:54 PM Tuesday, Mar. 28, 2017

First-year Springfield softball coach Brett Sadler is enthused about taking over a high school program for the first time in 12 years even though the Wildcats went 1-26 last season. “I really missed practicing with the team and the day-to-day interaction with the kids — the camaraderie and team building,” he said. Sadler...
With bulk of pitching back, Northwestern baseball optimistic
 When Todd Houseman became Northwestern baseball coach in 2014, he wanted to build up the program after several middling seasons. But he knew that wouldn’t happen without the players making a stronger commitment to the sport. He began preaching the importance of travel baseball, which lasts through the summer and beyond but is a surefire...

With seven starters back, Southeastern hopes to be contender in OHC

Catholic Central baseball coach sees better times ahead
 Third-year Catholic Central coach Jon Metzger is brimming with optimism with the return of his top eight players and nine of his top 10 from a year ago. Yes, the squad won only three of 23 games last season. But Metzger believes the Irish are better than what their record showed — and he has the numbers to prove it. With a predominantly...

Kenton Ridge softball has holes to fill, but returns all-state pitcher
 Eighth-year Kenton Ridge softball coach Sarah Schalnat has to replace her entire infield from last season and lost a pair of .400 hitters from a potent lineup, which means the rest of the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Division may close the gap on the Cougars, who have won four straight crowns. But maybe not. Schalnat still has one of...

Southeastern baseball looks to continue upward trend
 Craig Isaac didn’t know if he could make an impact in returning to coaching with the Southeastern baseball team. But given how far his alma mater had slipped, he knew he had to try. The Trojans won four games in 2014 and hadn’t captured a league title in more than a decade. But they jumped to 11 wins in Isaac’s first season...

Northwestern softball hopes to clear up ‘unfinished business’
 The Northwestern softball program has been pining for a state tournament berth since its last trip under legendary coach Nancy Dutton in 2000, and the team came tantalizingly close a year ago.

Shawnee looking to reload behind senior pitcher Rybolt
 The Shawnee High School baseball team was decimated by graduation and will be hard-pressed to replace star Seth Gray, who is leading Wright State University in hitting as a freshman with a .448 average. But senior pitcher Cade Rybolt doesn’t see why the Braves can’t contend for a Central Buckeye Conference title and duplicate...

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. But third-year coach Mike Schilling liked what he saw when practice began in February. 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.

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.

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...
