After qualifying third last Thursday in the USBC Intercollegiate Bowling Championships in Lincoln, Neb., the Calumet College’s men’s bowling team went 1-2 in double-elimination match play, eliminated by Marian out of Indianapolis 4-3 in a classic match.
It went back and forth with the Wave rolling 262 in the third game, only to lose to Marian’s program record 280 Baker game. CCSJ rebounded with a 247 in the sixth game to force a deciding Game 7 that went down to the 10th frame. Marian’s anchor got two strikes in the final frame to give the Knights a 224-216 win over the Wave.
CCSJ’s team consisted of Charles Smoot, Terrence McQueen, Mitchell Katic, Matt Kuba, Ryan Burks and three NWI bowlers — Tyler Napier of Knox, Jacob Grams of Michigan City and Griffith High School grad Ryan McCoy. Those region natives were facing two familiar foes since Highland grad Matt Staninger and Lake Central grad Kevin Rush were part of a Marian team that finished seventh in the nation.
CCSJ softball swept a doubleheader from Purdue North Central last Tuesday, 4-3 and 8-0. Jessica Pabey led the Wave in the first game with two triples, two RBI and two runs scored as CCSJ scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to win. Griffith grad Alex Latronica got the pitching victory. Pabey added two more triples in the second game. Jasmine Rivera also had two hits.

PNC baseball went 4-1 over the weekend, defeating Holy Cross 9-3 on Friday night at Coveleski Stadium in South Bend, then returning to the same field to sweep a doubleheader from Holy Cross, 14-0 and 10-3. Greg Toliver (two hits, RBI), Colin Willis (double, triple, two runs, two RBI) and Lake Central grad Anthony Olund (two hits, two runs, RBI) contributed in the first game. PNC concluded the weekend with a doubleheader split on Sunday against Trine University, losing the first game 5-0, but returning the favor with a 6-0 win in Game 2 on the strength of Sam Maxwell’s arm. The junior tossed a two-hit shutout for his first win of the season.
PUC signed six new recruits this past week in four different sports. Women’s basketball added Scottsburg’s Katie Wampier and Benton Central’s Cassidy Deno. Wampier averaged 14.7 points and 8.9 rebounds per game over the last two seasons, while Deno averaged 16.7 points and 6.9 rebounds. PUC baseball added California native Cole Garcia to its roster, while softball secured its third commitment in Bailey Kozbiel of Crest Hill, Ill. Men’s soccer added two new recruits, adding Rio De Janeiro, Brazil native Nicolau Monteiro, and Zac Doepke from Troy, Mich.

SJC men’s track athlete Logan Barrett set a new program record in the 5,000-meter run as SJC competed in Purdue’s Dave Rankin Invitational over the weekend. His time of 14:52.16 took first place and broke his own personal mark by 0.7 seconds. He was also 20 seconds better than race runner-up Allan Appiah from Purdue.
SJC softball won a pair of one-run games to win a doubleheader over Bellarmine on Sunday. The first game was a 3-2 win, while the second game took 11 innings to decide before Stephanie Winter scored on a sacrifice fly by Kalene Davis. Ally Foster blasted a home run for the Pumas in Game 1 as they improved to 24-13 this season.
SJC baseball swept McKendree on Sunday, winning a doubleheader 3-0 and 14-3. The highlight of the day was Brandon Brian hitting three solo home runs. Brett Maus tossed a two-hit shutout in the first game. Eric Mason went 3 for 4 in the second game with three RBI to help SJC improve to 22-13 on the season and 17-9 in the GLVC.
