Griffs Split At Mount St. Mary's

The Golden Griffins began their last extended road trip in preparation for MAAC season Saturday with a doubleheader split at Mount St. Mary's in Emmitsburg, Md.

I wasn't able to watch these games as they were blacked out by both schools, so here's a summary from the box scores.
Canisius won game one 6-0 behind the complete game of Jen Consaul, who struck out seven and scattered four hits. Two bases loaded walks gave the Griffs a 2-0 lead in the second inning. In the third, Bethany DeMarco hit a double that scored Stephanie Pfentner. And in the fourth, Robin Kennery and Tori Nappo singled home runs.

Game two went 10 innings, with the Griffs losing 4-3. Amanda Baun returned to action, and pitched the first nine innings, allowing just two earned runs, and striking out six. Jen Consaul entered the circle in the 10th inning, and the game ended with three consecutive bunts and a two out single. Robin Kennery hit a home run in this game, and drove home all three Canisius runs. She was 4 for 8 on the day with four RBIs.

The Griffs continue their road trip with a doubleheader at the College of Charleston on Tuesday.

I wish all D1 schools would be required to have Live Stats or Gametracker. It seems very counterproductive to attracting interest in their programs to not have one individual on their staff handle this routine assignment.

I agree it's in a program's best interest to cover games. And all it takes is a phone and a twitter account. Iona, St. Peter's and Niagara do that. Some of these schools act like they don't want to have fans.

As the parent of a college softball player, I know I want to see (either by video or at least Live Stats) how she is doing. Very few parents of D1 players can afford to traipse all over the country to see their kid play every game. It just isn't feasible.

It is a losing situation for the college (interest in their program isn't generated) and the parents (who cant see their kids performance) when, at minimum, Game Tracker or Live Stats aren't employed for games. Such an easy thing to do as you state and no good reason whatsoever for a college to not do it. I only wish the NCAA would mandate it for D1 programs.

Mount St. Mary's had a live stats link up, but removed it and covered their mens baseball and lacrosse games. It seems that the men's sports always get priority.
