 The Wright State baseball team has been on a hitting rampage this season, scoring at a pace that’s among the highest in school history.

Wright State Insider: Softball team bounces back from horrendous start
 First-year Wright State softball coach Laura Matthews didn’t think the season was a lost cause after getting off to an 0-11 start. She figured the Raiders were much better than they looked despite being outscored 76-21 during that horrendous stretch. But she knew her players could have easily lost incentive to keep plugging —...

Beavercreek grad follows his dream to TCU football
 Michael Carroll encountered doubters and naysayers as a Beavercreek High School senior in 2014 while telling anyone who would listen that he planned to play major-college football. Those speaking into his life were only doing what they thought was best for him. He was an undersized safety with a bum knee who wasn’t even among the team...

Wright State Insider: Golf team goes south to get their swings in
 Local golfers haven’t been able to tee it up much while contending with a frigid spring, including multiple days of snow in April, but Wright State players have had no trouble getting their swings in over the last couple of months.

Northwestern looking to refind its hit streak
 Northwestern High School baseball coach Todd Houseman had plenty of optimism going into last season because of a slew of solid hitters. After what he’d seen the previous year, he figured he had tough outs up and down the order. But that high-powered offense never materialized. Instead of consistently hearing the crack of the bat, the...

HS Softball: Springfield looks to build off last year’s improvement
 Springfield softball coach Brett Sadler knew he had to change the losing mentality in his program, and he told the players he wanted to go through a book to revamp the culture — with homework and group discussions being part of the exercise.

Central baseball rallies around new coach
 New Catholic Central baseball coach Nick Wagner would admit he’s still adapting to running his own program for the first time, but he’s always been confident in his knowledge of the game — especially when it comes to giving pitchers what they need to know.

Loaded lineup boosts Kenton Ridge season promise
 Kenton Ridge softball coach Sarah Schalnat is uneasy about launching the season next week after having to cut back on practice because of frigid weather. Even though the Cougars have had indoor workouts, that’s hardly conducive to shagging flies or running the base paths. But they’re better off than most teams. They return all...

Tigers find their form, but falter late in second-round NCAA loss
 Wittenberg coach Matt Croci subbed liberally in the first half against Wisconsin-Oshkosh in the NCAA Division III tourney, but each lineup he tried looked as disjointed and panicked as the previous one.

College Basketball: Benzinger leads Raiders past IUPUI
 The hustling Grant Benzinger needed five stitches in his hip after the UIC win Thursday — the third time in his career he’s had to be stitched up — but that didn’t curtail the way he played against IUPUI less than 48 hours later.

College Basketball: Wright State tops UIC in Horizon League opener
 Wright State coach Scott Nagy isn’t accustomed to having a team that rarely gets easy baskets and struggles so much to score. The Raiders burned Georgia Tech from long range in an upset last week, but that was an anomaly.

 Chelsea Welch has a multitude of skills, but the Wright State point guard’s most impressive attribute may be that she plays her best in the biggest games.
