Frostburg wins ECAC title

Bobcats pound Alvernia in final, finish season 33-12

READING, Pa. — The Frostburg State Bobcats put the ECAC championship in their hip pockets early, then celebrated all the way home.

The second-seeded Bobcats scored in every inning and finished with 14 hits in routing top-seeded tournament host Alvernia, 11-2 in 4 1/2 innings, to win the Eastern College Athletic Conference South Region softball tournament Sunday afternoon.

Caitlin Lovend and Bailey Ellsworth went 3 for 3 while freshman Mary Ann Moore chalked up her 20th victory of the year as Frostburg State (33-12) capped one of the most successful seasons in school history. The Bobcats beat Alvernia (37-10) twice on the day, the first earlier in the day by a 6-3 score.

Alvernia beat Stevenson 2-1 to earn the right to take on Frostburg again in the double-elimination tournament.

Ellsworth and Lovend, the No. 2 and 3 batters in the FSU order, were 6 for 6 with five runs scored and five RBIs. Lovend, who hit a pair of doubles, had all five of the RBIs, and Ellsworth scored three times. Cleanup hitter Renay Aubel had a single and an RBI and Shari Beavers had two singles and an RBI as the No. 2-5 hitters combined to go 9 for 10.

Moore added two singles and Kerri O’Malley had a double and two RBIs for Frostburg, which led 8-0 after three innings. Lovend had a two-run double in the first inning and a three-run double in the second to get the Bobcats off and running.

Moore (20-6) scattered five hits over five innings and allowed one earned run. She struck out one and did not walk a batter.

In the early game, Aubel slammed a two-run home run in the top of the sixth that erased an Alvernia 3-2 lead and gave FSU the lead for good.

Lovend cracked a two-run homer in the seventh for insurance, but Moore didn’t need it as she tossed a scoreless bottom of the seventh and struck out the final two batters. Moore scattered 10 hits, struck out five and walked two.

Aubel finished 3 for 4 with a homer, her 16th of the season, two RBIs and two runs scored. Lovend hit her 12th home run of the season and a single and also had two RBIs and two runs scored. Beavers tripled and singled and Lauren Capece and Taylor Blevins singled twice among 12 FSU hits.

Frostburg, which entered the weekend 13th in the nation in scoring, marched through the tournament in only four games, outscoring its opponents a 33-9. The Bobcats pounded out 43 hits and committed just four errors
