from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
November 16, 2006

The winter sports season starts tomorrow night with Men's Basketball's home game vs. Southwestern. Show your support for the Mountaineers by wearing your school colors to the game.

Before we get into the next week's schedule of events, we want to recognize a bunch of Schreiner fall sports stars who've been recognized by the American Southwest Conference for their achievements:

VOLLEYBALL: Freshman Tiffany Miller was named First Team All-ASC West Division and ASC Newcomer of the Year. Senior Whitney Barron, junior Kassie Barlow and sophomore Julie Peddy all earned All-ASC Honorable Mention. Congratulations to all four players, head coach John Wyatt Greenlee and to the SU Volleyball team for a strong turnaround season. Next fall, the ASC better look out because Schreiner Volleyball will be a team to contend with.

MEN'S SOCCER: Junior Tino Albarran and sophomore Nick Morrison were named the Outstanding Offensive and Defensive Players, respectively, for the ASC for 2006. Tino and Nick also were named first team All-ASC as were seniors David Ramos and Ben Roell. Daniel Cortez was named second team All-ASC and senior Chad Baker and freshman Michael Flynn earned Honorable Mention All-ASC. Coach Paul Hayes also was named ASC Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year. Congratulations to the those players, coach Hayes and the entire Mountaineer team for another outstanding and record-breaking year.

ASC Academic Awards should be announced next week and the Mountaineers will be strongly represented in all fall sports.
