The days are getting longer, the temps are slowly increasing, and there is a feeling in the air that baseball is not far away.

Ducks’ season ends without a trip to World Series

Oregon Ducks Softball Cheridan Hawkins

Cheridan Hawkins

Cheridan Hawkins’ career at Oregon came to an end yesterday after four stellar seasons. By the end of Saturday it seemed the #5 Ducks would be headed to the World Series again. With #1 Florida being upset and knocked out and the Ducks up 1-0 on UCLA at home in the Super Regionals, the odds of Oregon winning the whole thing looked possible. Then, Sunday, just two outs away from a trip to Oklahoma City, UCLA came back to win the game 2-1, forcing another game which they also took 2-1. The Ducks outscored the Bruins 10-5 in the series, and Oregon won the regular-season Pac-12 title, but neither of those things mattered. UCLA is moving on, and the Ducks are done.

Over four years, Cheridan threw almost 800 innings, struck out over a thousand batters, compiled a 1.66 ERA, a won-loss record of 108-20, and earned 17 saves.

Grace Lenthe wins top honor

Grace Lenthe – 2015 Midwestern League softball player of the year

Both the Ashland High School baseball and softball teams had similar seasons with good starts and poor finishes. The softball team went 10-3 before finishing the season 4-10. They came in 5th place in the 7-team conference. All-conference selections are difficult to come by in a 7-team league, but Grace Lenthe did one better. She won player of the year, an amazing accomplishment for someone on a team looking up at four other teams in the standings. Grace hit over .500 with a slugging percentage over .800 for the year.

Oregon Ducks Softball – Cheridan Hawkins struck out 11 Wisconsin batters in 7 innings

@OregonSB @CheridanH11 The Ducks hosted three other teams trying to get through them to the 2014 College Softball World Series this weekend. The regionals are a double-elimination format. The #1 ranked Ducks didn’t even use their one allowed loss. Instead, they went 3-0 to set up next weekend’s best two out of three series with #16 Minnesota. The winner will be going to the NCAA Women’s College Softball World Series.

Cheridan Hawkins is 31-4 so far this season with 302 strikeouts in 217 innings of work. Wisconsin was ranked #25 before losing twice to Oregon.
