Hannah Callahan, Lady Blue Devils off to hot start

March 15, 2012

With a perfect game and a no-hitter under her belt, Maiden’s Hannah Callahan has helped position the Lady Blue Devils for a successful season.

The junior pitcher is 5-1 this season, including a season-opening no-hitter against Lincolnton and a perfect game Tuesday against Newton-Conover.

Callahan said the two performances are a product of her hard work.
“My pitching means a lot to me,” Callahan said. “ I work on spins on my pitches, locations and different pitches. I work on my infield, too, because I struggle with that. I work hard at it so I can help my team out.”

TOURNEY WRAP-UP: UNC-Asheville upset falls short

March 15, 2012

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Reserve forward James Southerland had 15 points and a season-high eight rebounds, and Syracuse avoided becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16 when it rallied for a 72-65 victory over North Carolina-Asheville on Thursday in the East Regional.

The Orange entered the tournament without starting center Fab Melo, who was declared ineligible for academic reasons, and they almost left early with a piece of history no team wants. Instead, Syracuse (32-2) will play eighth-seeded Kansas State in the third round Saturday.
