Ternahan, Salisbury lax advance to NCAA quarterfinals

The Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team is headed to the NCAA quarterfinals after wins over Catholic University and Colorado College last week.

Bethany Beach native and Stephen Decatur High School graduate Andrew Ternahan saw action in both games, netting a goal and assist in the 19-6 win over Catholic on Wednesday, May 11, and then doing it again in the 16-5 win over Colorado College on Saturday, May 14.

The junior long-stick midfielder has been no stranger to making offensive contributions for the Seagulls this season, racking up six goals and seven assists through 20 games.

Ternahan and the Gulls were aiming to advance to the semis with a game against Denison on Wednesday, May 18, (after Coastal Point press time).

Smith, Pirates edged in AAC Tournament

Facing No. 3-seeded Tulsa in the American Athletic Conference Tournament, the East Carolina University softball team saw their AAC title hopes dashed after a 2-0 loss on Thursday, May 12.

Sophomore 3B and IR grad Karlie Smith went 1-3 with a single in the matchup, as the Pirates out-hit the Golden Hurricanes by a total of 6-3 but couldn’t manage to turn those hits into runs and get on the scoreboard.

A solo-homer in the bottom of the third from Julia Hollingsworth put Tulsa up 1-0, with the Golden Hurricanes tacking on an insurance run in the sixth on a sacrifice-fly RBI off the bat of Maddie Withie.

Smith’s single had come in the top of that inning; however, after making her way to second, she was left stranded.

The game was the Pirates’ final of the 2016 season, finishing with seven more wins than their 2015 total under first-year head coach Courtney Oliver.
