Women’s Lacrosse Finishes Regular Season

In the Buckeyes first season with new head coach Amanda Moore, they finished with a record of 8-8 after beating Temple 10-9 over the weekend. It’s an improvement over the 5-12 record they had least season, and they were even able to record a win over Penn State, their first Big Ten win since beating Michigan in April of 2022.

Junior midfielder Annie Hargraves led the way with three goals in the win over Temple, but junior attacker Brynn Ammerman had five points coming from one goal and four assists. Leah Sax had a goal of her own, and the other four were split up between Jamie Lasda, Kate Tyack, Maeve Simonds and Zoe Coleman. Regan Alexander had nine saves in net, earning the win.

The Big Ten tournament is up next, and Ohio State will be facing off against the Nittany Lions for the second time this season when they head to Penn State’s home turf in University Park, Pa. on Saturday, April 27 at noon.

Men’s Golf finishes 2nd in Robert Kepler Intercollegiate

Fifth-year senior Jacson Chandler finished second individually, the best for the Buckeyes over the weekend, shooting one-over par at the Scarlet Course, Ohio State’s home course. Also competing in the team event for the Buckeyes were seniors Adam Wallin (5-over), Maxwell Moldovan (6-over), redshirt freshman Tyler Sabo (13-over), and Shipley (14-over).

The Buckeyes have the Big Ten championship to look forward to that starts on April 26 and runs through April 28. It will be at the Scioto Country Club, in Columbus for the first time since 2007. After that NCAA regionals will be from May 13-15 and the NCAA championship will last from May 24-29 at La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., if Ohio State can make it there.

Baseball Drops Three Of Last Four

The Buckeyes had high hopes going up to Ann Arbor to face off against their rivals in Michigan, but they were only able to take one game out of the three-game weekend series they played against the Wolverines.

The offense struggled to get going in the first game, not scoring any runs while Landon Beidelschies got through 5 2/3 innings, giving up three runs, only two of which were earned. Zach Brown threw two innings out of the bullpen and gave up one more run for the final score of 4-0.

The bats caught fire in the next game, taking a 16-1 win over the Wolverines. Ohio State only had three runs through the first five innings, coming from a three-run Ryan Miller home run, but scored three in the sixth, three in the seventh, four in the eighth and three in the ninth. They had 16 hits in the game while southpaw Gavin Bruni took home the win for five innings of work.

The Buckeyes put up a fight in the third game, but ultimately lost 7-5 after Colin Purcell gave up four runs in 2/3 of an inning, followed by Jacob Morin giving up two runs in the same amount of work.

Ohio State went down to Dayton to play Wright State for the second time in as many weeks on Tuesday, but lost 14-13, the same score it beat the Raiders by the week before at Bill Davis Stadium. Head coach Bill Mosiello used seven different pitchers in the game while the Raiders used eight, and the Buckeyes record fell to 19-18 and stands at 6-6 in the Big Ten

They match up against Michigan State (17-20, 5-7 Big Ten) over the weekend looking to get right so that they can make the Big Ten tournament at the end of the season.
