ADA — Junior women’s tennis player Mackenzie Wills (Ada) has been awarded Ohio Athletic Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week kudos for the first time in her Ohio Northern career, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
Last week, Wills posted a perfect 10-0 overall record, leading the Polar Bears to an undefeated 5-0 mark against Baldwin Wallace, Franciscan, Muskingum, Marietta, and Earlham (Ind.). The junior went 5-0 in singles play in the No. 2-5 roles and 5-0 in doubles action in the No. 1-3 slots.
With her victories last week, Wills leads ONU with a 44-7 overall record, a 22-3 singles mark, and a 22-4 doubles record this season. She now owns 127 career wins, which ties for ninth on the all-time victories list.
The announcement marks the first time Wills has been named OAC Player of the Week.
SPRINGFIELD — The Ohio Northern softball program bounced back from a 9-8 game one loss with a 9-8 victory in the nightcap to earn a nonconference split with in-state foe Wittenberg Monday afternoon at Betty Doughman Dillahunt Field in Springfield.
With the split, Ohio Northern moves to 18-10 overall this season. Meanwhile, the Tigers jump to 6-22 overall.
Freshman infielder Kara May (Saint Marys/Spencerville) paced the Ohio Northern offense with five hits in nine trips to the plate Monday, which included a three-for-four performance in game two. The Saint Marys native added two RBI, two doubles, and two runs scored to a strong offensive attack.
Classmate Abby Elliott (Loveland/Ursuline) ended second on the team with four hits in seven official at-bats. The freshman also scored a run, contributed two RBI, and stole a base.
In game two, Ohio Northern tallied the victory due in large part to a four-run fourth inning. Trailing 5-3, Rubel slapped a single into center field to bring home two runs and tie the game at five-all. Junior Alicia Swierz (Deerfield/Swanton) added the inning’s third run with an RBI single, and she came home to score on an error moments later for a two-run lead.
Ohio Northern added two more runs in the fifth frame when May and Rubel came through with clutch RBI hits to put the Polar Bears up 9-6.
