Last Time Out....
The Toreros took 2-of-3 from South Dakota State at home this past Tuesday and Wednesday. South Dakota State won the first game of a Tuesday doubleheader 1-0 in eight innings, but USD bounced back with a 3-1 victory in the second game. The Toreros then posted a 5-1 win on Wednesday evening that included a 12-hit day by the USD offense. Lauren Tomey notched a 4-for-4 day at the plate on Wednesday, while Mary Grabowski (2-for-3, 2 RBI), Caitlin Rooney (2-for-4, 2 RBI) and Chloe Kaneko (2-for-3, RBI) helped power the USD attack. Jenny Lahitte (3-6, 2.22) and Cassidy Coleman (5-5, 2.62) each picked up wins for the Toreros.



Torero Tidbits....
• After starting the season hitting .161 over her first 10 games, Fr. C Mary Grabowski is hitting .375 (6-for-16) over her past six contests, including 4 RBI, one double and one triple. Grabowski has also boasts a .364 avg. with runners on base over that stretch.
• RHP Cassidy Coleman has moved into second place among USD's career strikeout leaders. Coleman, a junior, currently has 322 Ks, surpassing Colleen Norman (1995-98; 311 Ks) for second place. Jennifer Ellenbeck (2007-10) is the Toreros' career leader with 447 strikeouts. What's even more notable is the rate at which Coleman has racked up the Ks over her career. Coleman's 8.02 strikeouts per seven innings rate is by far the highest of USD's career strikeout leaders. Her 322 Ks have come in just 281.0 IP. By comparison, Ellenbeck (447 K in 619.0 IP) had a K/7 rate of 5.05 and Norman (311 K in 715.1 IP) had a rate of 3.04.
• RHP Jenny Lahitte is also moving her way up the USD career strikeout list. Lahitte, also a junior, currently ranks fourth with 284 career Ks. Like Coleman, Lahitte has been very efficient in producing strikeouts as shown by her 7.14 K/7 rate (284K in 278.1 IP).
• Lahitte's 15 strikeouts vs. New Mexico on Mar. 1 were one shy of her career-best (and one shy of the team single-game record). Her 11.0 innings pitched in that game also matched the team record.
Dana Prelsnik tied her career high with four hits vs. Fresno State on Mar. 3. She previously collected four hits in a game vs. Wisconsin on Mar. 10, 2012.
• RHP Cassidy Coleman was named PCSC Pitcher of the Week on Feb. 26. She is the first Torero to earn pitcher/player of the week honors this season. It is her second pitcher of the week recognition for her career.
• RF Lauren Tomey had her team-best nine-game hitting streak snapped vs. UC Riverside on Feb. 24. Tomey also had a team-best 13-game on-base streak snapped Mar. 2 vs. UCLA.
• Fr. 2B Danielle Mavridis' grand slam vs. Fresno State on Feb. 17 was the first Torero grand slam since Taylor Hensley's on Apr. 28, 2012 vs. Sacramento State.
• RHP Cassidy Coleman recorded 10+ strikeouts in a game for the 6th and 7th times in her career with 11 Ks vs. Weber State and UC Riverside on Feb. 22 & 24. Her career high is 14 at Saint Mary's on Apr. 6, 2012.
