Bowie State Lady Bulldogs Softball Splits on Opening Day of CIAA Championships



RALEIGH, N.C. - The first day of play at the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Softball Championship featured intense competition among eight teams.  After eight games over the course of the morning and afternoon, six teams live to see another day at Walnut Creek Softball Complex.

In the first round of play on Thursday, Bowie State jumped to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning against Saint Augustine’s with Nicoleen Ochoa’s RBI bunt single, Jacqueline Pickering’s two-run double and Deanna Matlock’s two-run single. 

Marley Parker’s three-run homerun gave the Lady Falcons an offensive spark.  Saint Augustine’s continued the momentum in the bottom of the second with five runs off seven hits capped by Jasmine Rios’ two-run homerun.  The Lady Falcons added one run in the fourth, fifth and sixth to pull away 11-5. 

The Lady Bulldogs added one run in the top of the seventh following a solo homerun by Cassandra Clayborne, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit.
    
In elimination play, Bowie State (14-18) wasted little time in the morning contest against Fayetteville State University.  The Lady Bulldogs took advantage of Danielle Watt’s RBI double and a Lady Bronco error in the top of the first to take an early 2-0 lead. Pickering’s sacrifice fly in the top of the third pushed Bowie State ahead 3-0. 

Fayetteville State (16-14) plated two runs in their final at-bat, one with ­­­Ivory Gladden's fielder's choice and another on Alex Wickham's RBI single through the right side. Fortunately for Bowie State, Ochoa got FSU’s Brittany Freeman to pop out to end the game and the Lady Broncos season.

Clayborne and Ochoa led Bowie State overall over the two games, pounding out five hits each and scored a combined five runs. Watt accounted for four hits while Matlock and junior Caitlin O’Neill recorded three hits apiece.

Chowan University and Saint Augustine’s University both secured a spot in semifinal play on Friday while four teams will battle for two remaining semifinal slots.  Winston-Salem State University and Virginia Union University will compete for a spot in Friday’s (5/1) semifinals at 10:00am

Virginia State University and Bowie State University will also battle to secure a spot in the semifinals in a Friday (5/1) 10:00 am contest, weather permitting.

Discover cancer ten years early, and beat it easily

Discover Cancer Up to a Decade
Before Most Doctors Would Know

You may go to great lengths to protect yourself from cancer by your diet, health and lifestyle choices.
Even so, this is no guarantee of success. Many people who lead very healthy lifestyles can and do succumb to this disease.
But what if there was an early warning system, a way of finding cancer within a few months of when the earliest cells form, establish themselves, and start to grow.
If this were possible it would give you up to ten years or more to strangle the beast (metaphorically speaking, of course) -- long before conventional tests would ever be able to detect it.
This issue talks about a way to do that. . .

Drink the “blood” of this plant to beat cancer

Can This “Blood of Plant Life”
Starve Out Cancer?

They may not have had indoor plumbing, but some ancient civilizations got a lot of things right—at least when it came to using food as a medicine to care for your body. Take wheatgrass, for example. You can trace it back 5,000 years to ancient Egypt, where it was used to promote health and vitality. Wheat grass may have even been used in early Mesopotamia.
As far as the Western world goes, wheatgrass didn’t become popular till the 1930s. At that time, it came into the spotlight thanks to the efforts of a fellow named Charles Schnabel (he was acclaimed the “father of wheatgrass” for his labors). Ann Wigmore, founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute and an advocate of the raw food diet, was also a strong supporter.
So today I want to talk about why wheatgrass juice has become such a phenomenon and whether it really can help you treat or prevent cancer.

Lady Bulldogs Earn Hard Fought 7-6 and 9-8 Sweep of Elizabeth City State Lady Vikings



BOWIE, Md. - The Bowie State University softball team earned two hard fought CIAA Northern Division wins against visiting Elizabeth City State University, edging the Lady Vikings 9-8 and 7-6 on Saturday afternoon. With the wins, the Lady Bulldogs (13-15, 9-5 CIAA, 6-2 North) move into second place in the division.

Freshman Nicoleen Ochoa (Madison, Ohio) led Bowie State with five hits on the afternoon, including the game winner in game one. Sophomore Hailey Bethke (Havre de Grace, Md.) added four hits and four runs for the Lady Bulldogs in the doubleheader sweep.

Elizabeth City State (2-26, 2-12 CIAA, 0-8 North) was led by Haley Williams (Askewville, N.C.) with  team-highs of four hits and four runs in the losses. One of Williams’ hits was a two-run homerun in game one. Kiyana Merritt (San Francisco, Calif.) contributed four hits as well and scored three runs.

ECSU’s Williams tallied three hits in the opening game, while Merritt, Diamond Davis (Roper, N.C.) and Rachel Gilliken (Camden, N.C.) recorded two hits each. Overall, the Lady Vikings had 14 hits in the 9-8 opening game loss.

The Bowie State foursome of Ochoa, freshmen Emily Lewis (Aberdeen, Md.) and Hannah Willis (St. Leonard, Md.) and junior Deanna Matlock (Pomona, Calif.) accounted for a pair of hits each in game one to lead the team. Ochoa, Bowie State’s starting pitcher, stroked a single through the right side of the Elizabeth City State defense in the bottom of the 7th inning, pushing Willis across the plate for the winning run.

Game two of the doubleheader was just as exciting as game one. Bowie State held a 3-0 advantage after one inning only to have Elizabeth City State trim the Lady Bulldogs lead to 3-2 in the 2nd inning.

Bowie State’s Lady Bulldogs held a 4-2 lead after two innings of play before Elizabeth City State took their first and only lead at 5-4 in the top of the 3rd inning.

The Lady Bulldogs responded with one run in the bottom of the third to tie the game at 5-all.

Each team went scoreless in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Merritt hit a leadoff single in the top of the 7th inning and later scored to put Elizabeth City State in front by a score of 6-5.

Bowie State’s Lewis opened the bottom of the 7th with a pop up to the ECSU shortstop for the first out. Freshman Jacqueline Pickering (Bowie, Md.) stepped up a drilled a double to left center and Bethke followed with a single, scoring Pickering and tying the game at 6-all. Willis hit a single to third advancing Bethke to second. Matlock flew out to center for the second out of the critical 7th inning.  Senior Cassandra Clayborne (Damascus, Md.) laced a double to right center, pushing Bethke across the dish to give Lady Bulldogs the thrilling 7-6 victory in game two.

Bowie State pounded out a season-high 18 hits in the nightcap compared to nine for Elizabeth City State. Clayborne, Ochoa and Bethke had three hits each in game two to lead the Lady Bulldogs.

Caitlin O’Neill (Elkton, Md.) went the distance in the circle in game two, striking out six.

The Lady Bulldogs will host the division leading Hawks of Chowan University on Sunday (April 26th) beginning at 1 pm, weather permitting.

Coppin State Women's Track Standout Alexis Marsh selected to attend NCAA Career in Sports Forum

View photo in messageMarsh selected to attend NCAA Career in Sports Forum

BALTIMORE – Coppin State sophomore sprinter Alexis Marsh was selected to attend the Career in Sports Forum to be held at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis from June 4-7.

The Career in Sports Forum, an annual educational forum hosted by the NCAA, brings together 200 selected student-athletes to learn and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The unique, four-day forum is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, as well as provide an opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals.

“I am extremely happy to have been chosen to be part of this program,” Marsh said. “It means a lot that I can see all that athletics has to offer beyond being a collegiate student-athlete. I am a criminal justice major but I love sports way too much to leave it alone. If I don’t work in the criminal justice field then I would love to be a track coach or an Athletics Director.” 

Marsh is a key member of the Coppin State women’s track and field program. The Ajax, Ontario, Canada native has run on the Eagles’ 4 x 400-meter relay teams, earning All-MEAC honors this past indoor season in the event. The Eagles relay team finished second at the MEAC Championships.

During the indoor season, Marsh helped the 4 x 400-meter relay team finish sixth at the ECAC Championship meet. The Eagles' time of 3:45.13 was the third fastest time in the indoor 4 x 4 in Coppin State history. Currently this outdoor season, the Eagles 4 x 400-meter relay team has the second fastest time in the event of 3:43.47.

Known for her consistently changing hairstyles, sparkling smile and pleasant personality, Marsh is looking forward to the opportunity to network with peers, exchange ideas with key NCAA leaders as well as spend a little time in the Midwest.

“Coppin State has taught me how to be more disciplined athletically,” Marsh said. “I have always been focused but I really needed to keep myself grounded and continuously remind myself of the reason why I am here. A lot of student-athletes applied for the program. I am blessed, humbled and happy that I was selected.”

Tetanus Shots Can Help Fight Brain Cancer

I'm sure you've heard plenty about the vaccine controversy. Critics have challenged the effectiveness of vaccines and highlighted their dangers for years.

Their work shows that a tetanus shot can boost survival rates among people battling a type of brain cancer that’s been considered a sure death sentence until now. Keep reading, it’s a remarkable story. . . .

Bowie State University Softball Roughs Up The Lincoln University 10-0, 19-3


BOWIE, Md. - Bowie State University softball (11-15, 7-5 CIAA, 4-2 North) showed no signs of rust after a seven-day layoff, roughing up visiting Lincoln University 10-0 and 19-3 in CIAA Northern Division action on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. 

Sophomore Hailey Bethke (Havre de Grace, Md.) paced the Lady Bulldogs with five hits while junior Danielle Watt (St. Leonard, Md.) and freshman Nicoleen Ochoa (Madison, Ohio) added four hits each of the two-game sweep. Watt recorded a game-high five RBI and Bethke along with Ochoa and junior Caitlin O’Neill contributed four RBI each.

The Lady Bulldogs tallied eight hits in game one and pounded out a season-high 17 hits in game two. Ochoa and Bethke led the home team with a pair of hits in the opener. Ochoa went the distance in the circle in game one allowing just three hits over five innings, striking out seven.

Lincoln (0-22, 0-12 CIAA, 0-6 North) took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning of the nightcap only to see Bowie State score five in their share of the inning. The BSU Lady Bulldogs added two runs in the bottom of the second and exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the third inning for a 14-3 advantage.

Lincoln’s Toni Smith (New Castle, Del.) belted a solo homerun (her first of the season) in the top of the 4th inning, but that would be all for the Lady Lions.

Bowie State pushed five across the dish on seven hits in the bottom of the 4th inning to put the exclamation point on the game.

Danielle Owes (Edgewater Park, N.J.) suffered the loss for the Lady Lions in game two while Bowie State O’Neill earned the victory which included four strikeouts.

Watt, Bethke and freshman Jacqueline Pickering (Bowie, Md.) led Bowie State with three hits apiece in the nightcap and each tallied three RBI.

Does “Nature’s Perfect Food” cause cancer?

Is This 'Nature's Perfect Food' or a Banquet for Hormone-Related Cancers?

The cancer returned for the fifth time.
After radical mastectomy, thirty-five doses of radiotherapy and twelve chemotherapy sessions, the battle was lost as far as her oncologist was concerned. 42-year-old scientist Jane Plant was given only three months to live.
That was 28 years ago. Today Jane, professor of geochemistry at Imperial College London, is free of cancer.
As she states in her book Your Life in Your Hands, "Having no alternative but to die or find a way out myself, I decided to find a way out. I determined to take control of my situation using my training as a natural scientist." This was her way out. . . .

Daniel named ECAC Division I South Athlete of the Week

BALTIMORE – Coppin State University junior high jumper Deandra Daniel was named the Corvias Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division I South Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week.

It’s the second time this season Daniel was named ECAC Division I South Athlete of the Week. This is Daniel’s second Athlete of the Week Award in less than 24 hours. She was named MEAC Field Athlete of the Week on Tuesday.

Daniel won the high jump at the University of Delaware Open. The five-time reigning MEAC high jump champion and Indoor Track and Field All-American soared a season-best 1.80 meters (5.91 feet) to claim victory in the event. She has the best mark in the event of any MEAC student-athlete.

Both of Coppin State’s track and field teams will return to action Saturday when they compete at the Morgan State Legacy Meet.
