USSSA Pride Wins in Italy

USSSA Pride Win Game 1 Against Italia Softball

Exhibition Series in Italy a First in NPF

Montegranaro, Italy – May 2, 2016  – A four run seventh inning was the difference maker in the USSSA Florida Pride’s 4-1 victory over Italia Softball on Monday. The Pride took game one of a four game series with the Italian National Team at Diamante Verde in Montegranaro, Italy. Amanda Kamekona’s RBI single and GiOnna DiSalvatore’s two-run homerun all came with two outs in the seventh.
Hannah Rogers started in the circle for the Pride and held Italia scoreless through four innings. In the bottom of the fifth, Giuila Longhi led off with a solo homerun off Andi Williamson who had entered in relief of Rogers.
Down 1-0 in the seventh, Lindsay Ziegenhirt led off with a walk. Three batters later Shelby Pendley picked up her second walk of the day to set the table for Kamekona who laced a line drive at the centerfielder scoring pinch runner Brigette Del Ponte from second. Pendley came all the way around from first after the ball was misplayed by the centerfielder putting the Pride up 2-1. DiSalvatore then launched a two-run homerun down the right field line to put the Pride up 4-1.
Longhi singled to lead off the bottom of the seventh. Williamson then struck out the next two Italian hitters and forced Francesca Concina to ground out to first base to end the game. Williamson earned the victory after three innings of work. She gave up one earned run on two hits and struck out five.
The Pride loaded the bases in the sixth after walks by DiSalvatore, Duran, and Lauren Chamberlain but Italia got out of the inning with a 5-2-3 double play.
DiSalvatore, Andrea Duran and Hallie Wilson all had two hits on the night. Duran ended the game 2-3 with a triple, double and walk. Rogers allowed three hits and struck out six in four innings of work.
The Pride return to action on Tuesday at 1:00 est. as they play Italia in Parma. Fans can watch all exhibition games on usssalive.com/usssapride or live streamed on Facebook.
This exhibition series in Italy marks the first time a National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) team has traveled to another country to play a National Team. The entire Italy trip is an effort by USSSA to help grow the sport of softball internationally.

5-3-2016 USA Softball Weekly Poll

Florida State joins top-five; Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee make moves in USA Today / NFCA Division I Top 25 Coaches Poll

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. –  Florida State climbed into the top five for the first time this season, while Oregon, Oklahoma and Tennessee all moved up in this week’s USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Coaches Poll.

 

Florida and Michigan continued as the top two teams, taking home 24 and eight first-place votes, respectively. The Gators (47-4) hit the road and took two-of-three at then-No. 18 Texas A&M in SEC action. UF cruised to a 14-3 game-one win and topped the Aggies 7-3 in game two before suffering a 6-4 defeat in the finale. The Wolverines (41-4) swept their opponents last week, defeating in-state foe Central Michigan (5-2) at home, while taking all three Big Ten contests from Penn State (4-2, 12-0, 13-3) in Happy Valley.

 

Oregon, Florida State and Oklahoma all jumped two spots in the top-10, while Tennessee catapulted from 13th into 10th. All four squads did not drop a contest with the No. 3 Ducks (38-6) and Vols (37-12) defeating ranked foes.

 

Behind dominant pitching performances from Cheridan Hawkins and Megan Kleist, Oregon blanked then-No. 17 Arizona (2-0, 7-0, 8-0) in Pac-12 play. It marked the first time, the Ducks shut out a Pac-12 opponent in a series since the league went to the current scheduling format in 2010.

 

On the other side of the table, UT throttled then-No. 3 Auburn in a doubleheader by a combined score of 22-3 (10-2, 12-1). The Vols (37-12) recorded 18 hits, and since their 9-0 defeat to Oklahoma have posted 40 runs the last four games.

 

The Seminoles (42-5) posted four wins last week to reach the 40-win plateau and also claim their 14th ACC regular season championship. FSU topped in-state foe UCF (7-1) in mid-week action before traveling to Pitt and sweeping the Panthers (16-11, 4-3, 15-5) to earn the title.

 

The Sooners (41-7) also swept their conference weekend earning three wins at Iowa State (4-2, 8-1, 12-1) to reach 40 wins and extend their winning streak to 16 games.

 

No. 4 Alabama stayed put after a 2-1 SEC series win at South Carolina (3-1, 1-2, 5-1 in 5), while Auburn (45-7) fell three spots to No. 6 after losing twice to Tennessee. James Madison (41-4) went from No. 6 to No. 8 after splitting with Elon (4-5 in 15, 8-1) in league play and Louisiana-Lafayette (37-7) dropped to No. 9 after a 2-1 SunBelt series win at Georgia Southern (5-0, 12-1, 0-2).

 

No. 25 UCF returned to the poll after a pair of wins at then-No. 22 USF in American Athletic Conference play. Cal-State Fullerton dropped out after two losses to Long Beach State.

5-3-2016 USA Softball Player of the Week

Power and consistency garner Towson’s Holiday Cahill Week 12 USA Softball Collegiate National Player of the Week honors

 

OKLAHOMA CITY — Following an outstanding weekend in the batter’s box, Towson’s Holiday Cahill (Cypress, Calif.) has been named the Week 12 USA Softball Collegiate National Player of the Week, the Amateur Softball Association (ASA)/USA Softball announced today.  The junior etched her name in the Tiger’s softball program record books, setting a single-game home run and RBI record after a lights out performance where Cahill sent three home runs out of the ballpark.  This marks the first time that Cahill has been selected as the USA Softball Collegiate National Player of the Week as Cahill also earned her second career Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) weekly honor.

 

“It’s an amazing and a humbling honor,” said Cahill.  “This recognition doesn’t happen without my teammates, coaching staff, trainers and our strength and conditioning coach. From the time we returned to campus on August 27, we’ve come together as a team and made a commitment to each other.  Every kid and athlete has a dream of doing something three times in a row. I never personally have been like ‘I want to hit three homers in a game’. To have it happen is amazing, however, those three homers don’t mean anything if Ambar Hickman isn’t dealing and my teammates aren’t making plays.”

 

Cahill started the week with a 4-for-6 performance as the Tigers squared off against Villanova in a doubleheader.  Cahill collected a single while scoring a run in Towson’s opening game against Villanova before exploding for a 3-for-4 performance in game two.  Helping the Tigers rally from a four-run deficit, Cahill had an RBI double in the first inning and a solo home run in the sixth inning.  The highlight of the week was Cahill’s perfect performance in Towson’s series-clinching finale against Delaware, where the junior first baseman hit two three-run home runs and a solo shot.  Finishing the game 3-for-3, Cahill picked up seven RBI while scoring three times.  She also added a sacrifice bunt that ultimately led to a Towson run early in the game.

 

“Having Holiday recognized shows how far our program has come, but also the respect that the CAA has,” said Towson Head Coach Lisa Costello.  “I think over the last several years, we’ve gotten a lot of recognition as a conference. Holiday always does whatever we need her to do. She’s definitely a kid who wants to win and she’s going to do everything possible to make sure that happens. I mean defensively, she’s a catcher, but she moved to first base and she’s become very good. She did a nice job and Sunday was a monster day for her.”

 

For the week, Cahill was 8-for-15 for a .533 batting average and recorded an astonishing 1.400 slugging percentage while blasting four home runs and collecting nine RBI over five games.  Her performance over the week helped put Cahill at second all-time in Towson softball history with 26 home runs, while her 99 career RBI is just one shy from Cahill becoming the eighth player in Towson history to drive in 100 runs. This marks the first USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Week honors for Cahill and the first for an athlete from Towson.
