Liggett softball earns trip to quarterfinals

GROSSE POINTE WOODS — Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett's softball team won what coach Ted Alpert thinks is the program's first regional championship in approximately eight years with a 5-0 win against Westland Huron Valley Lutheran School in a Division 4 contest June 8 at Liggett.

Earlier in the day, Liggett defeated Wixom St. Catherine of Siena 1-0 in its regional semifinal matchup.

Ashley Tengler pitched both games for Liggett, and along with his squad's defense, Alpert expressed his appreciation for what he saw from his senior pitcher.

"Our picher came through with 14 scoreless innings," he said. "She showed a lot of character. Three days ago, she showed up to practice sick. She battled back from her cold. She's the MVP of this team; she's also the MIAC  (Michigan Independent Athletic Conference) MVP."

Follwing the game, Tengler offered some thoughts on Liggett's postseason run.

"I knew I had my team behind me," she said. "I was very confident in their ability. If I was not on my game, then they would have my back. This is the furthest we've gotten since I've been here. It was real exciting (to) finally come to regionals when they were hosted at our house and win."

The Knights advance to the quarterfinals, scheduled for a 5 p.m. start June 11 against Concord at Adrian College.
