BSU Softball’s Yost Finds Her Way Into BSU Record Books


COMMUNICATIONS AND IT’S RIGHT HERE.>>>NOW, YOUR LOCAL SPORTS WITH COLIN CALVERT.>>COLLIN: WELL EVEN WITH THE SNOW FALLING ON THE GROUND, THIS BSU SOFTBALL TEAM IS GETTING HOT AT THE RIGHT TIME. THEY ARE NOW WINNERS OF FOUR CONSECUTIVE GAMES, WHICH PUSHES THEIR WIN TOTAL TO 24 ON THE SEASON. THE BEAVERS HOLD THE 5-TH SPOT CURRENTLY IN THE NSIC STANDINGS, WITH JUST OVER A WEEK TO GO TO THE CONFERENCE TOURNEY NEXT THURSDAY. THEY SWEPT MINNESOTA-DULUTH YESTERDAY ON THE ROAD, WHO IS JUST ONE POSITION ABOVE THEM IN THE STANDINGS AND JUST BEFORE THAT WINNING A PAIR IN THEIR FINAL HOME SERIES AGAINST WAYNE STATE. WITH THE BATS STARTING TO GET ROLLING AND SENIOR SENSATION JESS YOST DOMINATING ON THE MOUND, IS EVERYTHING FINALLY COMING AROUND FOR THIS BEAVER SOFTBALL SQUAD AS THEY BUILD MOMENTUM IN THE FINAL STRETCH OF THE SEASON>>I DON’T THINK MUCH WENT WRONG YESTERDAY. PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING WAS CLICKING FOR US, AND DULUTH IS A VERY GOOD TEAM, AND COMING OUT AND SWEEPING THEM WAS A GOOD EYE OPENER, COMING ON STRONG AT THE END HERE. A COMBINATION OF BOTH HITTING AND DEFENSE, AND I THINK THEY ARE BOTH CLICKING RIGHT NOW WHEREAS BEFORE WE JUST HAVE HITTING OR DEFENSE, AND I THINK THEY ARE COMING TOGETHER NOW.>>Collin: A BIG REASON FOR THE SUCCESS NOTHING THIS SEASON BUT ALSO OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, THE GIRL THAT HAS FOUND A HOME IN THE CIRCLE, JESS YOST. AFTER SETTING THE SINGLE SEASON SCHOOL-RECORD FOR WINS, STRIKEOUTS, AND ERA LAST YEAR, YOST HAS TAKEN HER GAME TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL HER SENIOR SEASON. SHE ALREADY HAS TOTALED 21 WINS, THE FIRST PITCHER IN SCHOOL HISTORY TO DO SO, AND SHE CAN STILL ADD ON TO THAT. HER ERA IS ON PACE FOR A CAREER-LOW 1.22 AND IS IN STRIKING DISTANCE FOR RE-SETTING THE RECORD FOR FANNED BATTERS IN A SEASON. WHAT A CAREER FOR THE TWO-SPORT ATHLETE, WHO HAS COME A LONG WAY ON THE DIAMOND, SINCE HER FRESHMAN SEASON.>>I THINK CONFIDENCE AND LEARNING HOW TO THROW IN A CONFERENCE LIKE THIS, AND OVER ALL THE TEAM HAS GOTTEN A LOT BETTER OVER MY FOUR YEARS. FEELS PRETTY GOOD, 20 WINS WAS MY GOAL, AND HAPPY I COULD SURPASS THAT ONE DAY, AND IT FEELS REALLY COOL TO BREAK A RECORD.>>Collin: BSU SOFTBALL TEAM RETURNS TO ACTION THIS WEEKEND.
