As I mentioned earlier on this board the Cortland State Red Dragons had a chance to match the 2 National Championships that the Tufts Jumbos won this past weekend.

The Cortland Men just polished off Wisconsin-La Crosse in the D3 College World Series by winning 2 straight games in the best of 3 series. Cortland, as they have continued to do all year and in numerous instances in the postseason, came from behind and scored 5 runs in the top of the 9th inning to win the game by a 6-2 score. Yesterday they took the first game in the series by an 11-3 score. Cortland completed play in the NCAA Regionals,  and in the DIII World Series with an undefeated record going 9-0 in the NCAA Tournament. They ended up with a final record of 45-4.

Good job by the spring athletic teams of Cortland as the Men's Lax and Women's Softball teams also made the NCAA tournament.

Congratulations to the National Champion Cortland State Red Dragons who proved that 13 was a lucky number for them. They defeat Wisconsin-La Crosse in a come from behind 6-2 win by scoring 5 runs in the top of the 9th inning.

Cortland never lost a game in the Regionals, the Pool A title and the Championship Series as they went 9-0 in NCAA tournament play.

This was the 2nd National Title in the past 4 days as they have a matching pair of Walnut and Bronze trophies thanks to the Women's Lacrosse team's National Championship that they won on Sunday.

Great job by the Red Dragon teams this spring to bring home 2 titles and have 4 teams (Men's Lax and Women's Softball also) make the NCAA tournament.

Cortland State wins the first game of the Championship Series by an 11-3 final score. First game tomorrow at 12:00 Noon EST.  2nd game at 3:30 PM EST if necessary.

Nice start by Cortland State in the Championship Series against Wisconsin La Crosse as they win by an 11-3 margin. I'll let jdex fill in all the details. One more win and 2 chances to do so tomorrow, to bring home the Big Doorstop. Go Red Dragons.

Nice to see the Red Dragons move on to the Championship series. I watched the game tonight and thought (once again) that Cortland was going to lose this game and it will come down to a deciding game tomorrow. And then they exploded for those 11 runs.

Good job amh63 Good job.  ;D ;)

Not sure if the Fournier ladies are related though, as one comes from Connecticut and one comes from Massachusetts.

amh63,

I didn't catch you with your pants down...as I mentioned earlier you were just exercising your prescient abilities. The Tufts Jumbos have indeed won the National Championship in softball just as you stated, almost a full day before it happened, as they defeated Texas Tyler in the 2nd game of the best of 3 series by a final score of 7-4. It was the culmination of a perfect season as the Jumbos ended up with a 51-0 record. They have now extended their  record unbeaten streak to 53 straight games and today's title was their 3rd straight National Championship.

Texas Tyler didn't go away quietly as they lost a closely contested first game today by a final score of 2-0. They had a 1-0 lead in the 2nd game and increased it to 2-0 in the bottom of the 5th. Tufts would not be denied however as they finally broke through with a big 6th inning and scored 6 runs to take a lead they would not surrender.

The Jumbos' ironwoman Allyson Fournier pitched 2 complete games today to notch her 34th and 35th wins of the season without a defeat. 35-0...imagine some years down the road you can tell the story of how you were 35-0 as a pitcher in college one year. Her ERA going into the final game, today, was an incredibly miniscule 0.10. She had only given up 3 earned runs in 203.2 innings. Texas Tyler scored 3 earned runs off her in the final game, so she ended up surrendering 6 earned runs in 210.2 innings. That's probably the most impressive pitching statistic I have ever heard for man or woman. 8-)

The Nescac did prevail in other title games.  The Jumbos won the men's title...back to back Lax champs.  Tufts also won the softball title....amazing undefeated season...1-0 win.  Only 4 total hits in the match...3 hits by Tufts and 1 hit by their opponent.

amh63,

I'm going to have to issue a slight reprimand here. :o I took you at your word that Tufts had won the Women's Softball Title and proceeded to tell several other people that Tufts won the title. I just discovered that not only have they not won the title but they have to beat Texas Tyler in a best of 3 series that started today at 1 PM.

The good news is the Jumbos won the game that started at 1:00 PM by a score of 2-0. They will play a 2nd game today that just started at 3:45 PM. If they win that one, then they would be champs. If they lose that game, there will be a winner take all game tomorrow starting at 11:00 AM.

Tufts' record is now 50-0 for the year and their NCAA D3 record undefeated streak has reached 52 games.

The only thing I can think of, amh63, is that you were gazing into your crystal ball when you made that quoted comment above, that Tufts had won the National Championship. You foresaw it happening and forgot that it was "going to happen" and not "did happen".  ;)

Was waiting for Magicman to post the BIG win for Cortland State's over Trinity! :). Guess he is too much of a gentleman to do so on this board.  Since I am presently in the "backyard" of Cortland visiting my daughter's family....I will do the honors....Cortland 17-6 over Trinity.  A trouncing of the no.2 team over the no. 1 team.  Trinity never seemed to me to be in the game.
The Nescac did prevail in other title games.  The Jumbos won the men's title...back to back Lax champs.  Tufts also won the softball title....amazing undefeated season...1-0 win.  Only 4 total hits in the match...3 hits by Tufts and 1 hit by their opponent.

amh63,

Thank you for calling me a gentleman (and thanks to Vandy as well) but I did say a little bit about the Cortland/Trinity game on the previous page. Here are the posts....The first half post:

Cortland leads Trinity 8-2 at the half. Cortland scored 2 goals inside of the first 3 minutes before the Bantams scored with 8 minutes gone by. It stayed that way until Cortland scored again with 13 minutes left in the half. The Red Dragons tacked on 2 more goals over the next 4 minutes and then got another one with 6 minutes to go t make it 6-1. Trinity got their 2nd goal with 4:36 left but the half ended with Cortland putting 2 more markers on the scoreboard. The 7th goal came with only 16 seconds left in the half and to add insult to injury the Red Dragons scored again 12 seconds later with only 4 ticks left to play. Both last second goals were scored by Cortland's Marilyn Farrell. That had to be a huge lift for the Cortland team going into the break.  Trinity needs to score a few quick goals early on to get back into this game in the 2nd half.

And the 2nd half post:

Looks like the 2nd half of the Championship game was just more of the first half as Cortland outscored the Trinity Bantams 9-4 in the 2nd to win this game going away by a 17-6 final score. Congratulations to the Red Dragons who finally get the Big Doorstop after knocking on the door for a number of years.   


Glad to see the Tufts men take home the Walnut and Bronze in Men's Lax. And the Tufts women get the title in softball. Two National Championships in 1 week. Jumboland must be trumpeting quite loudly.

Cortland also with a chance for a 2nd National Title as the Men's Baseball team is 1 win away from playing for the D3 World Series Title. The winner of Pool A will play the winner of Pool B in a best 2 of 3 series for the Championship. Cortland in undefeated in Pool A and will have two chances to win it against either Frostburg State or Ramapo. Wisconsin La Crosse is in the drivers seat for Pool B and also has two chances to win that pool. Hoping the Red Dragons, who have been ranked #1 by D3baseball.com since April 13th can get a matching Big Doorstop.

Looks like Cortland won't play today as the first game of the day has been pushed back to 5:00 PM this afternoon. That will match up Ramapo against Frostburg State in an elimination game with the winner taking on the Red Dragons tomorrow. Then later they hope to get the other elimination game in which will have Emory taking on Trinity(Texas). The winner of that game will face undefeated Wisconsin La Crosse tomorrow.

jdex,

I was very happy to see Southern Maine's junior shortstop Sam Dexter win the D3 Player of the Year. As I mentioned in my PM to you I thought he had to be one of the top candidates, but with so many good players across the country it's hard to be "The One".   Glad it happened and hope his career continues to be as good next season.

Congrats to Cortland State for going 2-0 for the 1st time, in their 13th try at the College World Series. Seems it was not an unlucky number for the Red Dragons. Two chances to win Pool A. Lets hope the first time is the one and make tomorrow's "if necessary" game unnecessary. Go Red Dragons.

I got your PM Vandy and I must confess I was so busy in my store yesterday that I never even got a chance to look at the game between Cortland and Middlebury. :( In fact it completely slipped my mind until I got the email telling me I had a PM from you, and when I read it I wondered how in the world after following the lacrosse teams all season I could forget about these games. :-[ Sorry to see Missy's final season come to an end. I was surprised to read that the Panthers opened with a 4-0 lead but failed to hold onto it. Have to give the Red Dragons credit for fighting back and going ahead by halftime. Now of course I will be able to devote my full attention to the ladies from Cortland and hope that they do indeed bring home the Walnut and Bronze.

Not only did I miss the lacrosse games but the Cortland Men's Baseball team has gone 2-0 in the College World Series and are the only undefeated team in their pool. I completely missed those 2 games as well. I have just had too many things going on the past week.

The men now have 2 chances to advance to the title series and are supposed to play today at 5:15 against the winner of the Frostburg State/Ramapo elimination game. Should Cortland lose that game later today they will play the same team tomorrow for the pool title and the right to face the other pool winner (probably Wisconsin-La Crosse) in the Championship Series.

So I could be doing some switching back and forth today as the Women's Lax Final starts at 4:30 and the baseball game goes off at 5:15. A double Red Dragon win will probably be too much to ask for but I can wish it. ;D
