Monarchs Softball News

Monarchs finish season with strong showing at regional tournament

The Maple Woods softball team finished up the 2015 campaign with a strong showing at the Region 16 Tournament.  Going into the tournament as the fifth seed out of six seeds, the Monarchs defeated 4-seed North Central Missouri College 4-1, feel to 1-seed and eventual champion Jefferson College 5-1, then defeated sixth seed St. Charles College before falling to NCMO 7-3 to finish 2-2 in the tournament.
 
Highlights of the season include four walk-off wins, including their first win of the season against Region 16 rival Crowder College.  Anna McFadden’s base hit up the middle scored Audrea Allen with the winning run with one out in the seventh inning to cement the Monarchs’ comeback with a 5-4 win.

The Monarchs’ also recorded walk-off wins in back to back games against Kansas City Community College. In Game 1, Autumn Hughes scored the winning run with two outs when Chelsea Long was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.  In Game 2 of the double-header, Kelsi Broyles slammed a seventh inning 2-run home run to send the Monarchs to their first win of the doubleheader 9-8.  The fourth walk-off win came against Region 16 rival NCMO, when Bailey Guiles scored on a misplayed ground ball hit by Alyson Klint.
 
The biggest non-Region 16 win came against then #5 NJCAA Division II ranked Highland College, a 5-2 win.  Jordyn Tieman picked up the win and Audrea Allen blasted a homerun to pace the Monarchs.
 
The Monarchs finished the season 14-26 (6-14 Region 16), doubling their win total from the 2014.  The Monarchs must replace their entire pitching staff for 2015, as Audrea Allen, Kelsi Broyles, and Jordyn Tieman all are out of eligibility.

Ten players return for 2016, including four of the top five hitters on the team: first baseman Amy Spieler; first team Region 16 shortstop Chelsea Long; centerfielder Bailey Guiles; and third baseman Autumn Hughes.

Thanks for all the memories!
