Muskingum coach Donna Newberry feared this situation.
Two-time All-America selection Erica Hoyt left after two innings in Muskingum's 2-0 win against Wheaton College (Mass.) in the opening round of the D-III College Softball World Series.
Hoyt's dad tells WHIZ's Aaron Spragg that Hoyt didn't feel well before the game and that she has a blood sugar problem. The condition, Hoyt's father says, causes the sophomore to experience migraine headaches, have seizures and feel weak at times.
Despite seeing several doctors, Hoyt's dad says nobody can identify the exact problem.
Hoyt suffered a seizure her freshman season during the Muskies annual trip to Florida. Spragg says Coach Newberry constantly monitors Hoyt's condition.
Lindsay Bramhall's 2-run single in the 3rd inning proved to be the only scoring in the game. Freshman pitcher Andrea Crow threw the final five innings to collect the win. Crow gave up five hits and struck out three.
Muskingum (42-5) plays St. Thomas (MN) next in the D-III College World Series from Salem, Virginia. St. Thomas defeated Cortland St. 10-2 in the final game of the opening day's quadruple header.
You can listen to the Muskingum-St. Thomas game 6:30 p.m. Saturday on WHIZ-FM affiliate Z-102.5.
