Beyond the Box Score: October 2015

Every once in a while, there is something we intend to post or share about Lewis & Clark Athletics, but for one reason or another, we don't. Or maybe we post it somewhere, but you weren't able to see it. Either way, each month, we'll attempt to catch everyone up on those stories through our Beyond the Box Score update.


Women's Golf ranked in the top 25

In mid-October, the Lewis & Clark women's golf team earned a spot in the Golfstat NCAA Women's Division III Golf Top 25, registering at No. 22. The Pioneers are still there as of Nov. 4, sitting at No. 25. They are one of two Northwest Conference teams to make the top 25.

During the fall season, Lewis & Clark had one individual tournament winner in freshman Mady Rhodenbaugh. She took the Pacific Invite in September, earning Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week that next week.

At the NWC Fall Classic, the team's fall wrap-up event, the Pios shot a second-day 319, which was the second-lowest day two score, to finish in fourth place. Annie McCutchan and Rhodenbaugh led the Pios individually in 10th place.


Softball and Baseball wrap-up Fall Ball

In preparation for the 2016 season, both the Lewis & Clark softball and baseball teams completed fall ball practices.

For softball, head coach Shawna Cyrus says it might have been the best practice session she's seen since being hired in 2009. 

Furthermore, two Lewis & Clark softball student-athletes were named NFCA All-America Scholar-Athletes from the 2015 season. Graduated senior Maddie Lee and freshman Ateisha Norton were chosen, making Lewis & Clark one of four Northwest Conference schools with winners. 

On the baseball side, Tom Flynn divided his group into three teams for the 2015 Fall World Series. Sean Shepherd won the most valuable player award as Team Black took the title.

That same weekend, Lewis & Clark hosted an Alumni Game, where the alumni defeated the current freshmen 4-2.
