Gold captures ECU World Series with 8-7 win


The East Carolina baseball team concluded its 2006 Fall Schedule, which was highlighted by the Annual Purple-Gold World Series on Lewis Field at Clark-LeClair Stadium, according to an ECU athletic media relations release.

The Gold took the series with an 8-7 win in the deciding third game.

The Pirates began their 13-day fall practice schedule on Sept. 11 with an agenda that included playing a best of three-game series. Assistant coach Link Jarrett coached the Purple squad and assistant coach Ben Sanderson coached the Gold.

Senior lefthander Jeff Ostrander guided the Purple to an opening win, 9-7. Right fielder Jamie Ray (3-for-5) and third baseman Jake Dean (1-for-4) each belted home runs helping the Purple collect 11 hits. Ray barely missed hitting for the cycle, lacking only a triple.

In game two, the Gold tied the series at one game a piece with an 11-9 victory in pouring rain with senior Mike Flye picking up the win. In the top half of the ninth, freshman Devin Harris (2-for-5) drove in the winning run to secure the win.

In the rubber match, the teams combined for 20 hits and 15 runs, with the Gold coming away with the series title. Ryan Tousley singled home a run in his first at-bat and doubled and scored in his next plate appearance, while freshman Bobby Fowler (2-2) reached base each time he went to the plate, walking twice and singling twice. Freshman Zach Cooper picked up the win.

The Pirates will continue with individual workouts throughout the remainder of the fall and reconvene as an entire squad on Jan. 10.

Tulsa runs past Southern Miss

Quarterback Paul Smith's label as a pocket passer officially can be thrown away, according to a Tulsa World report.

While the Tulsa quarterback studied the final statistics following Tuesday night's 20-6 home victory over Southern Miss, he noticed he rushed for a career-high 69 yards.

"That's not good," he joked with reporters. "I'm not supposed to be out there running around."

Smith, along with running backs Courtney Tennial and Cauvey Jackson, trampled over Southern Miss in the Conference USA opener. The trio helped the defending league champions race for a season-high 252 rushing yards.

Tennial (120 yards) and Jackson (68), two players who entered the season a few notches down on the running back's depth chart, took over for injured Tarrion Adams and Brandon Diles.

Former ECU golfer Millican in LPGA qualifying

Former East Carolina golfer Adrienne Millican carded a 2-over par 74 during the first round at the Venice (FL) LPGA Sectional Qualifying Tournament at Plantation Golf and Country Club on Tuesday.

The Fuquay-Varina native currently sits in a share of 34th place after recording a front-nine score of 40 (4-over-par) and a back nine 2-under-par 34 on the Bobcat course (par-72, 6,401). She sits five shots off the lead, which is held by Kim Augusta (Rumford, R.I.) and Eun-Hee Ji (Seoul, South Korea) with a 3-under-par 69.

Millican, a Conference USA All-Decade and two-time first-team selection, holds ECU's career scoring average of 75.63 as well as the school-record for tournament wins (five).

Second round qualifying will continue Wednesday morning with Millican playing the Panther course (par-72, 6,226).

Players are competing on both the Bobcat and Panther courses at Plantation Golf and Country Club, playing each of the courses once before the 36-hole cut is made following the second round. The final two rounds, which will feature the low 70 players and ties, will be played on the Bobcat Course.

The top-30 players and ties at the end of 72 holes will advance to the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., Nov. 29-Dec. 3.

The Venice qualifier is the second of the LPGA Tour's two sectional qualifying events in 2006. The first was at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., two weeks ago. The top-30 finishers and ties from each qualifier join current LPGA Tour members attempting to improve their status and the players who finished sixth through 15 th on the final 2006 Duramed Futures Tour money list at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament.
