Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
September 13, 2007

This will be another quiet weekend on campus as all of our teams will be on the road. Next week, our teams return to the friendly confines of Kerrville/Schreiner for their contests. Here's a quick look back at last week's contests and a schedule of the week ahead:

Last Week's Results:

MEN'S SOCCER (1-1 overall, 0-0 in ASC): Lost at Huston-Tillotson, 4-1. The defending Red River Conference champions, HTU proved too much for the Mountaineers in this contest. HTU was aided because Schreiner had to play the second half at a one-man disadvantage due to a penalty. Ryan Ross scored the lone goal (unassisted) for Schreiner - his second of the year.

WOMEN'S SOCCER (1-1 overall, 0-1 in ASC): Lost at Texas Lutheran, 0-5. The tables were turned on SU. Winners by a 5-0 count in their season opener the week before, Schreiner found itself on the wrong side of the scoreboard against the perennial ASC power in both team's conference opener.

VOLLEYBALL (3-4 overall, 0-1 in ASC): Lost to #14 Austin College, 2-3, beat host University of Dallas, 3-1, lost to Huntingdon, 2-3, to #25 Wheaton College, 1-3 and at preseason ASC favorite Texas Lutheran, 1-3. It was a rough week for Schreiner. Three of the four losses were to top teams but the squad is still trying to deal with injury-caused changes in the lineup. One bright spot was the return, after nearly two years, of injuries, of Xandria White. White was named to the all-tournament team at the Dallas Tournament.

MEN'S GOLF: finished 10th (out of 15 teams) at the highly competitive John Bohmann Invitational. Starting four freshmen and a sophomore, Schreiner shot its lowest scores in many years (300-301-306=907). Freshman Steven Bell shot a one-under par 71 on the opening day to pace the Mountaineers and sophomore Kyle Grona, battling illness and rainy conditions, also shot a one-under 71 on the final day. The last round, the Mountaineers were a man down due to another illness and still managed to move up two spots in the tournament field that featured nationally-ranked teams from junior college and NCAA Division III.

WOMEN'S GOLF: beginning just the program's second year of competition, SU finished 10th out of 14 teams at the TLU Lady Bulldog Invitational. In the first round, Schreiner set a school-record with a team total of 356 and was in eighth place overall. Sophomore Surraya Minhas was 5th after the first day with a 79 and freshman teammate Liz Calderon was 9th with an 82. Freshman Kattie Spencer added an 86 in her first collegiate round. The second day, with heavy rains hitting the area early in the round, Schreiner didn't fare as well. The Mountaineers fell two spots but still finished fourth out of the 7 ASC schools. SU also defeated the defending ASC champs (TLU) on their home course.

MEN'S/WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY: Competed at UT-Tyler Invitational as individuals. Freshman Michael Maia was the top SU male runner finishing 36th overall. Sophomore Cynthia Valadez led SU's females by finishing 42nd.
