Wednesday, July 16, 2014 4:43 PM

ST. LEON – East Central junior Tayler Wullenweber gave her verbal commitment to Purdue University softball Sunday, July 6.

Wullenweber, who was in Denver, playing for her Cincy Static ’97 travel team that weekend, was a second-year starter at second base for the Lady Trojans as a sophomore this past spring.

EC’s batting champion each of her first two varsity seasons, she hit .419 with team highs of 27 runs scored, 31 runs batted in and 11 doubles.

A .457 hitter with runners in scoring position, Tayler posted a .505 on-base percentrage and .709 slugging percentage for a combined 1.214 on-base plus slugging.

Equally adept defensively, Wullenweber fielded .985 with 73 assists, 58 putouts and just two errors for the 16-3 Trojans, under first-year head coach Shannon Wullenweber, her dad.

Tayler earned Dearborn County Newcomer of the Year honors as a freshman starter in 2012, batting .407 with a .469 on-base percentage and .506 slugging as EC’s “second leadoff hitter” behind second-team All-State shortstop Sami Turner.

Wullenweber was accorded first team All-Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference and All-County honors this past spring, along with being named East Central’s Offensive Player of the Year.

Daughter of Shannon and Jennifer Wullenweber, Sunman, Tayler committed to a rebuilding NCAA Division I Boilermakers program that went 27-28-1 this past season under first-year head coach Kim Schuette.

Purdue softball finished 13-10 in Big Ten Conference play, falling in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. Boilers were the No. 6 seed in the tourney, winning five of their eight league series.

Boilermaker fast-pitch crew posted three wins over Top 15-ranked opponents and played 14 games against Top 25 foes and 14 vs. opponents that advanced to NCAA regionals.

In two-plus varsity seasons to date at East Central, Savannah has batted .371 with nine home runs, 59 runs batted in, 12 doubles and 36 runs scored.

Her eight home runs this spring set a new EC school record for a single season, surpassing the previous mark of seven, by Robin Theising in 1992.

ST. LEON – Two-time defending champion Gavin Rich, with commitments in Muncie as a Ball State University senior, was unable to make it to Saturday's eighth annual Trojan Trot 5K Run/Walk.

Another perfect morning for running kicked off the 2014 Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit's (SIRC-it) five-week series Saturday at 8:30 a.m. with the annual fund-raiser for Rich's alma mater, East Central High School cross country.

That left the door open for recent South Dearborn High School grad Joe Rector, 18, of Aurora, to became the seventh overall champion in the 3.1-mile race's eight-year history.

Headed to Hanover College this fall, Rector – winner in three of the five SIRC-it races a year ago - breezed to the win in a time of 17:40.

He finished fourth in last year's Trojan Trot in a time of 17:22 to top the series' 2013 leaderboard with a combined time of 1:27.08.

Rector finished in front of runner-up Brad Barry, 21, of Sunman, who posted a time of 18:02, running the rural road Trot circuit that starts and finishes at St. Leon American Legion Post 464.


West Harrison working mom Lisa Andi, 32 – women's champion in four of the five SIRC-it events last summer – started the new season on the right foot Saturday. Andi led all female runners to the wire in a time of 19:08, just shy of last year's women's course record of 19:05.

ST. LEON – Want to know why East Central softball will continue to be a top contender among area programs for the foreseeable future?

For his 2014 season wrapup interview, EC first-year head coach Shannon Wullenweber spoke by phone from Denver, Colo., Tuesday.

That’s where his Cincy Static ’97 travel team – a group of 12 girls, born that year, he has coached since they were 9 - was competing in a major summer tournament. Seven of those 12 players, now 16-17 years old, are already committed to college softball.

“We’ve got over 400 wins on the travel circuit,” said Wullenweber, whose daughter Tayler, EC sophomore and the Lady Trojans’ leading hitter for the past two years, is on the verge of giving her verbal commitment.
