Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
February 20, 2008

This weekend will be a busy one on campus for SU sports teams. The Women's and Men's Basketball teams will each have their final two games on Thursday and Saturday, with the latter being Senior Day for WBKB players Lynn Stow and Amanda Flores as well as Justin Walker, Ronnie Barney and Stan Crockett for the MBKB team. Softball starts its season today with a road game at TAMUI. This weekend will also be the home opening weekend for SU Baseball as you will see in the schedule below. Here's a quick update of last week's contests and a schedule for the next week:

BASEBALL: SU beat back both the weather and Southwestern University to record a 9-2 win on Sunday which earned the team a split of their doubleheader. The Mountaineers lost the first game, 14-0. Senior Kevin Jones again was strong on the hill, throwing five innings of shutout ball to get his first win of the year. He was supported by 14 SU hits and had plenty of run support. Sophomores J.D. Escobar and Eric Crenwelge each had three hits on the day. Sophomore DH Matt Tomasello was again having a strong day at the plate, but suffered a major injury sliding into home plate while scoring the game's final run.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: Lost at #9 McMurry and at Hardin-Simmons. The Mountaineers had a difficult time in their annual trip to Abilene, dropping both games. Freshman Anna Fareed led SU last week, averaging just under 15 points per game, while sophomore Courtney Davis averaged nearly 13 per night in the losses.

MEN'S BASKETBALL: lost at McMurry and Hardin-Simmons. Like the SU Women, Schreiner's men's team also had a tough trip to Abilene. The Mountaineers have gone with a lineup featuring freshmen and sophomores almost exclusively over the past week. Against HSU, Schreiner started four freshmen and one sophomore.

WOMEN'S/MEN'S TENNIS: both teams' matches with Southwestern were canceled last week.
