Softball Weekly Release - Week 10

Updated Softball Statistics in HTML Format | PDF

PRINCETON, N.J. -- After an exciting final weekend of the regular season, it will be Penn and Dartmouth to play for the Ivy League Championship beginning Saturday in Philadelphia.

A week after clinching the North Division crown, Penn wrapped up home field advantage by taking three of four from Columbia... although it wasn't easy. The Lions won the first game of the series in New York on Friday, 8-6, before Penn came back to win the second game, 6-2. As the series shifted down the N.J. Turnpike to Philadelphia, the Quakers still needed another win Saturday to clinch home field. Penn defeated Columbia, 2-1, in nine innings in the first game on Saturday to wrap it up.

Meanwhile, in New England, Harvard and Dartmouth were dueling it out for the North Division crown and still holding an outside chance of hosting the championship series. In Hanover on Saturday, Harvard made a statement in game 1 with a 4-1 win to pull into a tie atop the North. But Dartmouth bounced back in the nightcap, 7-1, to reduce the magic number to 2.

As the series shifted to Boston on Sunday, Harvard hoped home field would bring it another North Division title. The Crimson held a 4-3 and had chased Dartmouth star pitcher Kristen Rumley from the circle after three innings. But freshman Morgan McCalmon came on to strike out 10 over the next five frames and hold Harvard mostly at bey. The Big Green pushed across a run in the top of the seventh to tie it on an RBI single by Rumley as she gained a measure of redemption. Then, in the top of the eighth, freshman Katie McEachern's third extra base hit of the game was her biggest, a solo home run to give Dartmouth a 5-4 lead. McCalmon struck out the side and Dartmouth was on its way to the championship series.

Penn and Dartmouth, which split their regular season doubleheader in Philadelphia back on March 30, will play a doubleheader on Saturday and a single game on Sunday, if necessary, in the best-of-three championship series. Neither team has won a championship series. Penn has lost the series twice before, both to Harvard in two games (2007 and 2012). Dartmouth lost to Cornell in the series in 2009.

Dartmouth is going in search of its first Ivy League softball title, while Penn is looking for its first softball crown since 1981 -- just the second season of Ivy softball.

Cornell and Princeton played in an instant classic over the weekend -- a 15-inning marathon won by Cornell, 1-0. Alex Peyton hurled 14-1/3 innings, taking the complete game loss, while Alyson Onyon got the win by going all 15 innings and allowing just eight hits in a complete game effort.

Harvard's Kasey Lange ends the season on an impressive streak, having reached base in 31 consecutive games.

Some noteable Ivy League career marks as some seasons come to a close:

Stephanie Thompson (Brown): 1st in batting avg. (.430), first in on-base pct. (.514) and second in slugging pct. (.785), eighth in walks (74)
Kasey Lange (Harvard): 4th in RBIs (147), t-5th in doubles (48)
Kristen Rumley (Dartmouth): t-3rd in opp. BA (.197)

And on the single-season lists:

Sarah Onorato (Yale): 3rd in slugging pct. (.864), t-5th in home runs (14), 2nd in total bases (127), t-7th in doubles (19)
Kristen Rumley (Dartmouth): 21st pitcher in Ivy history to win 20 games

Dartmouth freshman infielder Katie McEachern (San Diego, Calif.) has had some big hits this season, but none were bigger than the home run she hit Sunday. McEachern's home run to lead off the top of the eighth inning was the difference as Dartmouth clinched the North Division title with a 5-4 win over Harvard. It was her third extra-base hit of the game and her 10th home run this season, extending her single-season school record. She went 6-for-15 on the week with four runs scored and three RBI.
