first_imgNo. 15 Argos Score 27 Runs in Sweep of William Jewell PENSACOLA, Fla.  – No. 15 West Florida downed William Jewell in two games, as Ashleigh Allgood (Oxford, Ala./Jefferson Davis CC) collected both wins to improve to 5-2 from the circle. The Argos clinched a 16-1 win in the first game, and then staged a come-from-behind 11-6 victory in the night cap. Crystal Johnson (Bonifay, Fla./Gulf Coast CC) launched two long balls in the same inning in game one, while Allgood collected seven RBI on homeruns alone. The Argos used a 13-run first frame to cruise to their 16-1 victory in the first contest with William Jewell. UWF fired off 17 hits in the game, led by Karri Bisbee’s (Panama City, Fla./Gulf Coast CC) perfect 4-for-4 outing. The junior led off the game with a double to right field, and scored the first run on Stephanie Ryan’s (Calgary, Alberta/Webber International) RBI base hit to center. Amber Ingram (Pensacola, Fla./Catholic HS) dropped a bunt single, and two runs scored as Allgood followed with a double. Thompson then blasted her first homerun of the inning over the left field fence to plate two more runs. Three more runs scored and three more batters reached to load the bases for Allgood’s second at-bat of the inning, in which she launched her first career grand slam. Thompson then followed with her second long ball of the frame, using the solo shot to increase the lead to 13-0.William Jewell managed to scratch a run across in the third, but the Argos answered with three insurance runs in the fourth. Allgood, Lexi Mikedis (Citra, Fla./Central Florida CC), and Katalin Self (Katy, Texas/Seven Lakes HS) each picked up an RBI in the inning, and the lead was enough to close the game in five innings. Allgood tossed a gem, allowing just one hit form the Cardinals. She punched out 11 batters in the affair, a career high for the junior. She was the RBI leader of the game with five, followed by Thompson’s three. The second game was a different story, as the Cardinals jumped out to an early 6-1 lead by the third inning. West Florida plated the first run on an RBI single from Shannon Miles (Shreveport, La./Bossier Parrish CC), but William Jewell countered with a run in the bottom half of the first. WJC tacked on three runs in the second frame, and then two in the third to put West Florida down by a five-run deficit. The Argos were held to just three hits by William Jewell’s Amanda Storm in the first three innings, but the offense began to stage their comeback in the fourth. Franny Bell (Navarre, Fla./Navarre HS) reached on an error and Melissa Chastang (Satsuma, Ala./Satsuma HS) drew a walk, as Ingram came through with a base-clearing triple to cut the lead to three. The Argos still inched closer in the fifth, as catcher Danielle Kildow (Fort Walton Beach, Fla./Stetson) led off with a double, coming around to score on a pinch-hit RBI single from Thompson. Allgood came in to relieve UWF starter Victoria Harvey (Green Bay Cove, Fla./Clay HS) in the bottom of the fifth, tossing her way out of a jam with two base runners on. In the top of the sixth, it was Jennifer McKenney (St. Petersburg Beach, Fla./Daytona Beach CC) who answered the call, pushing the tying runs across with a double down the left field line for a 6-6 knot.The Argos put the game out of the Cardinals’ reach in the top of the seventh, led off by a Mikedis pinch-hit single. Chastang then drove in the go-ahead runs with a two-run shot to centerfield, her fifth homerun of the year. The WJC pitching staff then gave up two bases on walks that would come back to haunt them as Allgood blasted her second homerun of the day to put the game away at 11-6.West Florida opens up home conference action on Saturday with a noon doubleheader against North Alabama. The Argos then continue GSC play against West Alabama on Sunday with first pitch scheduled for 1pm.

A San Diego Native Remembers Junior Seau….

first_img About Connatix V56892 1/1 The great Chargers linebacker, Junior Seau, was one year ahead of me growing up in San Diego, California.  Of course, before he was the great Chargers linebacker, he was a standout at USC, and even before that, a local phenom at Oceanside High School.I was lucky enough to meet him at a football camp in the summer of 1986.  It was the “Denny Stoltz Aztec Football Camp” – at the time, Denny Stoltz was the head coach at San Diego State.  Junior and I spoke several times, mostly about baseball, actually.  We both loved the San Diego Padres, and were both especially Tony Gwynn fans.  I remember thinking to myself, that for such a big guy, and such a “super-jock” – he seemed very bright, and certainly was a natural ‘leader’ on the field. Auto (360p) Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Skip 1080p HDcenter_img 720p HD 360p About Connatix V56892 He was not fake.  That emotion that he played with for all those years in the NFL – he played like that back then, too.  He PRACTICED like that.  He loved football.  He loved to win – he loved to dominate.  But he mostly loved football.  Other than family, there may only be one thing Junior Seau loved more than football.Junior loved his home town.  He loved San Diego.  He loved the Chargers.  He was proud of his roots.  He wanted to be the one that put San Diego on the ‘sports’ map.  And it didn’t take him long.Junior Seau was the; heartbeat, the captain, the very soul – of EVERY GOOD Chargers team in the 90’s.  He led them to several playoff appearances, and an unexpected Super Bowl in 1994.In his prime, he was the; fastest, most destructive, most feared, and most schemed against, defensive player in the game.  He was the best middle linebacker EVER, at getting into the opposing backfield – and either pressuring the quarterback, or completely busting up the running play.  His timing, awareness, and natural instincts, were  all incredible.I try to tell my Minnesota friends how important Junior was to us, in southern California.  When I try to explain the impact of his death on the people of San Diego, I have said,”Imagine if Kirby Puckett was from the Twin Cities, when he passed away.  Or what if  right now, Paul Molitor, or Joe Mauer, took their own life? How bad would that hurt for the true, hardcore Minnesota fan?Well, imagine that times 1,000 – that is what Junior Seau meant to the community that he grew up a part of, and always remained a part of.  Like everyone, he made his fair share of mistakes in life.  But Junior had a big, loving, and forgiving heart.It is impossible to get into another person’s mind.  It is even harder to understand why a person with; wealth, a beautiful family, and millions of fans, would take his own life.When I heard the news I cried for a long, long time.  But I’m done crying now, and I’m going to remember Junior Seau for all of his electrifying play on the football field.At football camp, he called me “Pretty Boy” – and I’m sure he didn’t mean it as a compliment!  Fourteen years later, I saw him at an event and started to approach him.  Before I even got to him, he through his hands up and yelled,”Pretty Boy, is that you?”He remembered me.  I can’t tell you what that meant.Junior Seau will always be a legend in southern California – and is an absolute lock to be a first ballot Hall-of-Famer.And when that day comes in a few years in Canton, Ohio – I will be “front and center” with my Chargers #55  jersey on – explaining to my son why Junior Seau was so important.last_img read more
