The No. 7 seed Buckeyes became the lowest seed to win the tournament after defeating Minnesota, 8-6, in the semifinals Sunday morning before defeating Nebraska, 3-1, in the championship game in the afternoon in front of an electric pro-Husker crowd of 17,503 fans. It marked the second-largest crowd in Big Ten tournament history as well as the second-largest crowd this spring in all of college baseball. With their 10th tournament title in school history, the Buckeyes (35-25) earn an automatic bid into the 2019 NCAA Tournament. The NCAA selection show is set for Noon ET Monday.

He finished with 3.1 scoreless innings on two hits, two walks and four strikeouts. Magno claimed an astonishing four saves on the week. Buckeye senior left fielder Brady Cherry gave the Scarlet and Gray an early 1-0 lead with a one-out single off Nebraska starting pitcher Matt Waldron to plate Dominic Canzone in the bottom of the first. Ohio State added a second run in the fourth when a call at a play at the plate was overturned. Husker catcher Luke Roskam missed the tag on a sliding Brent Todys at the dish. The play went in the scorebook as a sac fly by Erwin and the Buckeyes up two. Nebraska threatened to score in the seventh with two in scoring position vs. Magno. But Nick Erwin fielded a slow roller down the third base line and fired across the diamond to a stretched Conner Pohl to end the threat. The play was reviewed and stood as called on the field as an out. Pohl added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth with a sac fly.



The Buckeyes jumped out to a seven-run lead and held off a late comeback by the Golden Gophers as Ohio State defeated Minnesota, 8-6, in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament Sunday morning. Ohio State scored four runs in the fourth, two in the fifth and two in the sixth.

On the mound off short rest, left-handed starting pitcher Seth Lonsway gave the Buckeyes five strong innings and limited the Gopher bats to one run on four hits with one walk and six strikeouts. Lonsway improved to 8-4. Left-handed reliever Andrew Magno claimed his third save of the season with 2.1 scoreless innings on one walk and one strikeout.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Department of Athletics held the 52nd-annual Scholar-Athlete Dinner Wednesday in the Archie M. Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union to honor its student-athletes for their academic and athletic accomplishments. At the event, 674 Ohio State Scholar-Athletes were recognized and a number of senior awards were given out.


The finalists for the Big Ten Medal of Honor, which is awarded to one male and one female student from the graduating class of each member institution who has demonstrated excellence on and off the field throughout their college career, were revealed at the dinner. The highest honor a student competing in conference athletics can achieve in the Big Ten, the award was established in 1915 and was the first award in intercollegiate athletics to demonstrate support for the educational emphasis placed on athletics. During the past century, the Big Ten Medal of Honor has been awarded to more than 1,300 honorees. These individuals have translated their campus experience into success in all walks of life.


The Ohio State Big Ten Medal of Honor finalists for 2019 on the women’s side are Lauren Boyle (ice hockey), Alyssa Hoying (synchronized swimming), Devon Kerr (soccer), Lilli Piper (softball) and Karrington Winters (track).

Synchronized swimming was honored for having the most improved team GPA among the teams with large rosters and the women’s basketball team was honored as most improved GPA for the teams with small rosters.


Fencer Gabriella Leccese was the recipient of both the Leann Grimes-Davidge Award and the John Dana Cole Award.

The Corwin A. Fergus Memorial Award was given to Sasha Larocque of the men’s hockey team, men’s gymnast David Szarvas, wrestler Joseph McKenna and synchronized swimmer Alyssa Hoying. Fergus scholars are male or female student-athletes who have excelled in athletics, achieved academically (3.00 GPA minimum), demonstrated positive qualities of character and citizenship and shown potential for success in a graduate or professional program. Established in 1967, the award is given in memory of Corwin A. Fergus, a member of the Ohio State football team (1912-14), a graduate of the Ohio State School of Law and later a successful businessman. The award reflects his strong commitment to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence and his positive contributions to society. The $5,000 postgraduate scholarships, which each are renewable for up to three years, can be utilized for graduate study or professional programs at Ohio State.


Szarvas also was the recipient of the Pierce Phoenix Award, which is given to a student-athlete who has excelled in academics, athletics and personal growth attained through perseverance and hard work. The award is to be used to attend graduate or professional school at Ohio State, with preference given to someone who intends to enroll in the Fisher College of Business.


In addition, Szarvas joined synchronized swimmer Alyssa Hoying as the Varsity O Scholarship Award winners. The Varsity O award provides each scholar-athlete selected (one male/one female) with a one-time stipend of $4,000 for postgraduate studies at Ohio State. The ideal candidate maintained a 3.0 GPA or higher during undergraduate studies, earned a varsity letter and performed community service.


Rower Madison Sheahan and Jacyn Reeves of the women’s ice hockey team both received the M/I Homes Foundation Award, which has been awarded annually since 1976. The award was one of the first designed specifically to recognize and promote women’s achievements in intercollegiate athletics at Ohio State. It provides an outstanding female scholar-athlete $5,000 for postgraduate studies at Ohio State. The award is based on demonstrated athletic and academic success as well as community contributions through involvement in civic or university organizations.


Five Buckeyes were selected for the Woody and Anne Hayes Award – Bailey Urbach from the rifle team, synchronized swimmer Rachel Warren, Hannah Gantt of the women’s lacrosse team and two members of the men’s hockey team, Brendon Kearney and John Wiitala. The award, established in 1979, provides one or more varsity athletes with financial assistance for postgraduate studies.
