Warhawk Weekly 5-31: Softball season closes; Cast your vote

Softball’s historic season comes to a close

Auburn University at Montgomery softball team’s season came to a close on Saturday after dropping a heartbreaking 4-3 contest against top-seeded Texas-Tyler in an elimination game at the NCAA Division II Softball Championship Tournament in Denver.

AUM sophomore Kat Fallen’s historic season also came to a close on Saturday as she finished one of the greatest seasons by an individual in program history. The sophomore set the single-season RBI record with 59 and broke Olivia Aycock’s single-season hit record after recording 70 hits this season.

Other standout players were Gia Martin, who drove in AUM’s first run on a fielder’s choice with runners on the corners, and junior Molly Cobb, who hit one of the most dramatic home runs in school history to briefly give the Warhawks a 3-2 lead.

The Patriots tied the game after a pitch got away from AUM freshman Avery Dickerson and allowed the runner on first to advance to third base on the play. With two strikes to Shannon Klaus, she laced a ball to the AUM shortstop, who was unable to handle the ball resulting in a game-ending error.

The Warhawks wrap up the 2022 season with 49 wins, the most since the 2016 season. AUM also recorded 23 home victories this season which ties the most in a single season that was set by the 2016 version of the Warhawks.

Spots open for Audio & Video Storytelling Summer Camp

AUM’s College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and the Department of Communication and Theatre will host a summer camp for high school students to learn about media careers and creating podcasts.

The five-day intensive summer camp at AUM is devoted to helping rising ninth-12th graders produce audio and video stories. Students will learn about exciting media careers, including podcasting, TV and public relations while learning the “architecture” of how to build a memorable podcast and video clip. Participants will create a feature story-turned podcast episode and video segment to add to their portfolio of creative work. The program ends on the last day with a listening party and viewing of camper work.

The camp, which will also feature guest speakers from the media, will run from June 13-17 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in AUM’s Department of Communication.

The camp includes all meals, snacks, drinks, program instruction materials and equipment. Transportation for off-campus local media tours will be provided.
