Freshman Tyson Bagley pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits to help lead Westmont Baseball to a 7-6 win over the Cougars of Azusa Pacific (17-21, 12-12) in the second game of a doubleheader. Bagley picked up his third win of the season while striking out eight and walking four.

The Cougars opened the game with a first inning run, but the Warriors wasted no time in responding. Catcher Eric Menees led off the bottom of the first inning with a single to right field and was moved over to second on a sacrifice bunt by second baseman Steven Hardest. First baseman Eric Gaustad, hitting in the number five hole, knocked a single into left center to score Meness from second and tie the game at one. Gaustad was three for four on the day with a run and three RBIs.

April 16th, 2005

Despite winning three of three set tie breakers, the Westmont Men’s Tennis season came a few shots short of upsetting #12 Point Loma Nazarene (3-3, 10-8). The 5-4 loss eliminates effectively the Warriors from post-season play.

The match started well for the Warriors who won two of three doubles matches. J.B Schiller and Kyle Godfrey defeated Johannes Vance and Christian Gerloff 8-6 at number two. “Kyle and I played amazing doubles today,” said Schiller, “probably the best doubles of our lives. We we’re hitting the ball so smoothly.”

Women’s Tennis Falls to #9 Point Loma

April 16th, 2005

(April 16, 2005) – The hopes of #17 Westmont Women’s Tennis to upset #9 Point Loma Nazarene (14-4, 9-3) in the final GSAC game of the season, came to an end with today’s singles matches. The Sea Lions won five of six singles matches to claim the victory before the doubles matches even began. In the end, Point Loma walked away with a 7-2 victory.

Jen Goebel was the lone winner for the Warriors defeating Christine LaLonde 6-2, 7-6 (5) on the number four court. “I was looking around realizing that this was my last home game,” said the senior captain, “and I was just so thankful – thankful for tennis, thankful to Westmont and thankful to God for legs that move.” Reflecting on her singles match Goebel admitted, “I didn’t feel confident out there, but I came in with a plan to hit to her backhand and stayed with it. It was a challenge because my opponent was inconsistent. She would hit winners and then make errors, so it was hard to get into a rhythm. There weren’t many long points, which I would have preferred.”

Tennis Time Changes

(April 14, 2005) – Men’s and Women’s Tennis have switched start times for Saturday’s matches against Point Loma Nazarene. The women’s match will begin at 11:00 a.m. and the men’s at 1:00 p.m.

Warriors Add Game to Schedule

April 12th, 2005

Westmont Baseball has added a game with California Lutheran to the 2005 schedule. The Kingsmen will visit Russ Carr Field on the Westmont campus on Tuesday April 26th. Game time is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

The Warriors had a doubleheader against Bethany and a game against Albertson canceled due to rain early in the season, so the additional game helps to fill up the shortened schedule.
