First Pitch!

Graduation for the South Carolina Corps of Cadets will be tomorrow (Saturday) morning and the commencement for the Graduate College will be later in the day, so our first salute this morning goes to those who will shake hands with Lt. Gen. John Rosa and take a diploma from him.  Congratulations to all graduates, especially to those cadet-student-athletes!!!

Baseball taking the series at Furman this past weekend marks just the second time in history that the Bulldogs have defeated the Paladins in football, swept the two games in basketball and won the baseball series. The only other time that occurred was during the 1992-93 academic year.  That sure does make Spike proud.

Still on the diamond, we salute Austin Pritcher and Johnathan Stokes for being named the Southern Conference Pitcher and Player of the Week, respectively.

Though we didn’t have any players’ names called during last weekend’s NFL Draft, defensive end Chris Billingslea signed a free agent contract with the Seattle Seahawks while punter Cass Couey has a scheduled tryout with the New York Giants.  If either of them makes the squad, they would join Andre Roberts (Arizona Cardinals) and Cortez Allen (Pittsburgh Steelers) as The Citadel's current representatives in the National Football League.

Along similar lines, Asher Wojciechowski was promoted this week to Class AAA Oklahoma City, placing him a step closer to the parent club, the Houston Astros (now in the American League).

The Citadel Department of Athletics and adidas jointly announced a five-year partnership in which adidas will be the official athletic footwear, apparel and accessory brand of the Bulldogs through the 2018 season.  This is good news for all of our teams, and look for new uniforms and gear being worn by players and coaches.

And finally, Mother’s Day is approaching and if you’re struggling with what to get her, consider sending her to The Citadel Football Association’s 4th Annual Lady Bulldogs Football 101 that will be held on  Friday, July 26, at Johnson Hagood Stadium.  See below for the special Mother’s Day opportunity.

As you’ve come to expect, we have another solid issue full of news and notes, so enjoy and Go Bulldogs!!!

Citadel Inks Partnership with adidas

The Citadel and adidas jointly announced a five-year partnership in which adidas will be the official athletic footwear, apparel and accessory brand of the Bulldogs through the 2018 season.

Through the partnership, adidas will supply the Bulldogs with all apparel, footwear and accessories for competition, practices, training, coaching, travel, recruiting and media engagements starting July, 1 2013 for all 16 intercollegiate athletic teams.

The Citadel fans will be able to purchase adidas’ wide range of products, including sideline gear, coaches’ polo shirts, hats, jackets and outerwear at The Citadel Bookstore both in stores and online.

Baseball Takes Furman Series in Greenville; Falls at No. 1 UNC

On Wednesday in Chapel Hill, a quintet of North Carolina pitchers limited The Citadel to four hits as the nation's top-ranked team defeated the Bulldogs, 13-0, at Boshamer Stadium.

The 42-4 Tar Heels scored six times in the second, including a grand slam and never looked back in winning the first matchup between the two teams since the 2004 NCAA Tournament and first in the regular season since 1999.

The Bulldogs had only one base runner over the first four innings and threatened only once when Drew DeKerlegand and Calvin Orth singled to lead off the fifth. But UNC’s pitcher retired Johnathan Stokes on a fly out to right and struck out Bailey Rush and Brett Bullard to keep The Citadel off the board.

Orth also singled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to a career-long 10 games. Hughston Armstrong matched Orth's streak when he singled in the ninth.

Furman used an eight-run second inning to overcome a huge early deficit, and the Paladins went on to end The Citadel's 10-game winning streak with a 14-10 victory in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader at Latham Stadium.

The Citadel picked up where they left off in the opening game of the twinbill when it scored 11 runs in the final four innings by tallying six times in the first inning of the nightcap. Mason Davis tripled and scored on a single by Armstrong, DeKerlegand had a sacrifice fly and Orth made it 3-0 with an RBI single with only one out in the frame.

Stokes continued his red-hot hitting with a double that drove in the fourth run, and Rush capped the uprising with a two-run single. Rush added his first career home run in the seventh and had five hits and six RBI in the doubleheader.  The Citadel added a run in the second on Joe Jackson's solo homer, his eighth of the season and sixth straight SoCon series in which he has left the yard. The junior catcher only had one career home run entering the 2013 campaign.

Starter Austin Mason, coming off two starts in which he did not allow an earned run in 12 2/3 innings, looked sharp in the first inning with a pair of strikeouts before the Paladins exploded in the second. Furman sent 13 batters to the plate and had eight hits, highlighted by two-run safeties by Hunter Burton and Greg Harrison, to go in front 8-7.

In Saturday’s first game of a twinbill, The Citadel exploded for 11 runs over the final four innings and finished with a season-high 19 hits in a 13-7 victory over Furman in the opening game of the doubleheader in Greenville.  The Bulldogs have won 10 in a row and eight straight in the conference and are on a double-digit winning streak for the fifth time in 22 seasons under head coach Fred Jordan. The streak is the longest since a 13-game run near the end of the 2010 campaign that culminated with a victory over Virginia Tech in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

Bo Thompson led the hit parade with a career-high five including his second multiple home run game of the season. The sophomore slugger had a solo shot in the fourth and a two-run blast in the eighth while adding an RBI double in the first and a run-scoring single in the seventh to enable him to match his career-best with five RBI established earlier this season against Samford.

It is the second five-hit game for a Bulldog in the last week as Armstrong reached that figure against Appalachian State last Sunday. Thompson also extended his streak of consecutive games reaching base to 43 and has 12 home runs and 39 RBI on the season while raising his batting average to .356 and slugging percentage to a whopping .689.

Thompson was not alone in producing huge offensive numbers, with the effort of Rush being the most notable. He entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth and proceeded to drive in two runs with a double before adding a single in the eighth and a run-scoring triple in the ninth to give him a career-high three RBI while matching a career high with three hits.

On Friday, Austin Pritcher turned in the best performance by a Citadel hurler this season as he tossed a complete game five-hit shutout to lead the Bulldogs to a 6-0 win over Furman for their ninth consecutive victory and seventh straight in the Southern Conference.  Pritcher did not issue a walk and struck out six for his second career shutout and the first complete game by a Bulldog in 2013. He retired the first 11 batters, set down the side in order five times and lowered his ERA this season from 2.74 to 2.40.

Stokes provided most of the offensive punch with three hits, a two-run homer and an RBI single. The sophomore shortstop raised his average 12 points to .292 and has driven in at least one run in 11 of the last 14 games with a total of 20 over that span. Stokes has three RBI in each of the last two games and is now second on the team with 36.

The first five innings was a duel between two of the top pitchers in the SoCon, with Furman left hander Nate Smith matching Pritcher zero for zero.  The Bulldogs finally broke the scoreless tie in the sixth. Bret Hines reached on an error and eventually scored on a two-out infield single up the third base line by Armstrong. Jackson followed with a double just inside the bag at third to easily plate Armstrong and handed The Citadel a 2-0 lead.

Austin Pritcher, Johnathan Stokes Sweep SoCon Weekly Baseball Awards

The performances of Austin Pritcher and Johnathan Stokes last week has earned the duo recognition as the Southern Conference Pitcher and Player of the Week, respectively.

This is the first time a Citadel pitcher has received the weekly SoCon award although Pritcher was the pitcher of the month for February. Stokes is the third Bulldog to win player of the week honors, joining Drew DeKerlegand (March 4) and Bo Thompson (March 18).

Pritcher turned in the top outing for a Citadel pitcher this season, tossing a complete game five-hit shutout in a 6-0 win over Furman in the series opener on Friday. The senior right hander did not issue a walk and struck out six in the first complete game by a Bulldog in 2013.

Pritcher, a graduate of James Island High School, retired the first 11 Furman batters, set down the side in order five times and allowed multiple base runners in only two innings to earn his fifth win of the season against two defeats. He lowered his ERA to 2.40 and opponent batting average to .227 and leads the SoCon in both categories.

Stokes went 9-for-15 with two doubles, a home run, four runs scored and nine RBI during a 3-1 week. He had a pair of three-hit games in a series win over Furman and had two games with three RBI during the week.

The sophomore shortstop from Cheraw opened the week with two hits and a pair of sacrifice flies and drove in three runs in an 8-5 win over Charleston Southern last Wednesday. In the opening game of the series against the Paladins, Stokes had three hits and knocked in three more runs including a two-run homer in the seventh that extended The Citadel's lead to 4-0.

He followed that up with three hits in the opening game of Saturday's doubleheader and had a two-run double as part of a four-run seventh inning that turned a 5-4 lead into a five-run cushion in an eventual 13-7 victory. Stokes had an RBI double in a six-run first inning in the nightcap before Furman rallied for a 14-10 win that snapped The Citadel's 10-game winning streak.

Women’s Sprint Medley Relay Breaks School Record at Penn Relays

The women's sprint medley relay posted a school record time of 4:02.17 in Saturday's 119th Penn Relays on Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa. As a result, the 2013 Bulldog women etched their name atop the school's record book in 12 different events throughout the historic season.

The quartet of Chalita Johnson, Tanisha Bethel, Danielle Williams and Micah Wessinger shattered their own record in the event set earlier this season at the Raleigh Relays by more than two seconds and placed 16th out of 33 teams in one of the world's largest and oldest relay events.

The same foursome also competed in the 4x200m where they finished less than one second shy of topping their own record in the event that they posted earlier this season at the Florida Relays. The relay team clocked in at 1:42.17 to take 39th place out of 60 teams.

The Citadel track and field teams capped off a memorable season which included a combined 15 new school records, including 12 on the women's side and three on the men's side. Parker Gaston also set a new decathlon long jump record with a leap of 20'10"at the Southern Conference Championship.

Board of Visitors Recognize Three Standout Athletes

All-American wrestlers Odie Delaney and Ugi Khishignyam, along with basketball player Mike Groselle, were honored in a ceremony at Bond Hall on Wednesday by the Board of Visitors.

The athletes were presented a letter of congratulations and an engraved Citadel coin by Col. Doug Snyder, chairman of the Board of Visitors.

Khishignyam and Delaney earned All-America honors at the 2013 NCAA Wrestling Championship, becoming just the second and third grapplers in school history to accomplish the feat.

Ugi concluded the tournament in fourth place, the highest finish in program history, and became the first Bulldog to advance to the semifinal round.

Delaney tallied three pins en route to a seventh-place finish in the heavyweight division and posted his 125th career win to move the senior into a tie for first place in Citadel history. Delaney will graduate on Saturday with a degree in criminal justice and begin working for the Charleston Police Department.

Groselle, who also graduates Saturday with a 3.7 grade point average in civil engineering, earned several postseason accolades, highlighted by his selection as one of 10 finalists and a first team All-American for the Senior CLASS Award. He was chosen to the All-Southern Conference team by the coaches and media and merited a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-District squad.

The Plano, Texas, native finished his career ranked second in school history with 738 rebounds and a field goal percentage of 58.9.  He is also the seventh-leading scorer at The Citadel with 1,359 points.

Wrestling Enjoys Year-End Awards Picnic

The wrestling team closed out its historic 2012-13 campaign last weekend with its annual year-end awards picnic, honoring several team members for their achievements on the mat and in the classroom.

Graduating seniors Odie Delaney, Jordan Dix, Josh Tuck and Mike Harper were recognized for their dedication to the team, while redshirt freshman Ugi Khishignyam was named as the team's MVP for his performance throughout the season and at the NCAA Championship.

Matt Frisch took home the "Workhorse Award" and the Most Outstanding Freshman.

And Having Absolutely Nothing to Do with Athletics, Part I

In this year’s Recylemania, the annual college competition to increase recycling efforts on campuses across the nation, The Citadel led all Southern Conference colleges in the Per Capita Classic division by recycling 13.31 pounds per capita during the course of the eight-week competition.  The Citadel also made an impressive mark in South Carolina and in the nation, ranking:

  • Third in the nation in colleges recycling Food Waste;
  • First in the Bottles and Cans category of the 10 colleges participating in South Carolina;
  • And third place in the Per Capita Class in South Carolina.

From Feb. 8 to March 30, The Citadel recycled more than 53,000 pounds, preventing the release of 138 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.  That’s the equivalent of the energy consumption of 12 households or 27 automobiles in one year.

This year The Citadel implemented a new food waste program in which food and organic waste was separated and sent to a composting facility, reducing the waste sent to the landfill.

The Citadel was one of 520 colleges competing this year.  During this 13th annual tournament, updated weekly rankings allowed schools to track their performance in eight categories – measuring their recycling rate; overall recycling by weight; lowest amount of total waste; and per capita recovery for paper, cardboard, can and bottles and food waste.

And Having Absolutely Nothing to Do with Athletics, Part II

Five things to know about Cinco de Mayo

  1. Cinco de Mayo isn't a big holiday in Mexico but "just another day for its residents and not an excuse to eat, drink and be merry."
  2. It isn't Mexico's Fourth of July or independence day.
  3. It actually commemorates the Battle of Puebla from 1862 when Mexico tried to defend itself from a French invasion.
  4. In the U.S., the day gained steam after World War II as a way to improve relations with our Latin American neighbors.
  5. The margarita wasn't invented until the 20th century, well after the Battle of Puebla. (Beer, however, has been around for awhile!)
