When the 2010-11 school year starts in a few months, there will be two new faces in the crowd in the Dakota Wesleyan University athletic department.
New faces are something DWU is familiar with.
The university, whose longest-tenured coaches will enter their sixth years with the school this fall, has an average tenure of 3.7 years among its 13 head coaching positions. That average is the lowest among the 13 schools in the Great Plains Athletic Conference, of which the university is a part. The GPAC school with the longest average tenure among its coaches is Midland Lutheran, in Fremont, Neb., at 12.2 years.
After giving up a 4-2 lead in the top of the sixth inning, the Dakota Wesleyan University baseball team failed to score a run in the bottom of the inning or the seventh to end the game in seven innings.
But after holding Southwest Minnesota State scoreless in the top of the eighth inning, Casey Solem stepped up to the plate for the Tigers and hit a walk-off home run over the right field fence to give DWU a 5-4 win in the nightcap Wednesday night at Drake Field.
The Dakota Wesleyan softball team got a pair of strong pitching performances in its first home doubleheader of the season Wednesday night.
But the Tigers just couldn’t get the bats going.
Not one bit.
DWU was able to muster just four hits in each game and saw its defense let it down late in the nightcap as the Tigers were swept by Dordt College — losing 2-0 in the opener, and 4-0 in eighth innings in the nightcap — in the teams’ Great Plains Athletic Conference opener at Cadwell Park.
