Medina sets freshman records in 17-0 rout of Pirates



USF freshman Stephanie Medina had one of the best power-hitting games in Bulls history Saturday -- two home runs and a double for 7 RBIs in USF's 17-0 rout at Seton Hall to finish a three-game series.

In doing so, Medina set USF's freshman records by reaching eight home runs for the year, as well as 48 RBIs -- assistant coach Monica Triner had a share of both old marks, with seven home runs and 43 RBIs her freshman year in 1996. The 17 runs scored is the most the Bulls have scored in a Big East game, and is the most for USF in any game since Feb. 20, 2005, when they beat Florida A&M 17-1.

USF (29-16, 9-1 in Big East) got another dominant performance from freshman Sara Nevins, who threw a five-inning one-hitter, striking out seven and walking none. My favorite lines from the official box score? "Attendance: 76" and "Weather: Cold and dank."
