Thursday night is the home opener for Schreiner Softball as the Mountaineers host Trinity at Mountaineer Field. The first game of the doubleheader is at 5:00 pm. Schreiner Basketball wrapped up its season last week and now all of our spring teams are in full swing. Here's a quick look back at the week past and a schedule of events coming up in the next week:

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: beat Sul Ross State and lost to #2 Howard Payne. Schreiner closed its 2007-08 season with a win and a loss to the nation's #2 team. SU beat Sul Ross State in overtime and was led by junior Monica Enriquez who scored 28 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 7 steals. She is among the ASC's best in all four categories. Saturday's loss to unbeaten HPU marked the end of the careers of two senior Mountaineers, Lynn Stow and Amanda Flores.

MEN'S BASKETBALL: beat Sul Ross State and Howard Payne. Schreiner had an eight point lead at the half and held off SRS in the closing minutes to win. Senior Ronnie Barney led SU with 13 points. Freshman Riley Battle added 12 points. Saturday's loss to Howard Payne was the final game for SU seniors Barney, Justin Walker and Stan Crockett.

BASEBALL: lost a three games series to visiting Ozarks and lost to Trinity. The Mountaineers were not able to contain Ozarks offense and had trouble scoring runs in their series loss. SU lost the opener 10-1 and then lost a doubleheader by scores of 4-2 and 16-9. Schreiner rallied from a 16-3 deficit in the final two innings to make it interesting in the series finale but was undone by six errors. They lost to the visiting Tigers 15-4 on Tuesday as well.

MEN'S GOLF: Schreiner finished 8th in the 15-team UMHB Invitational. Sophomore Kyle Grona led the Mountaineers each day and finished 19th overall as all players were continually pounded by high winds. The second round was played with a wind-chill in the 30's early in the round and winds that gusted to 50 mph. Freshman Jay Chapman finished 31st overall. Sophomore Brent Stanford was in 43rd place.

WOMEN'S GOLF: SU's two freshmen (Liz Calderon and Kattie Spencer) tied for the second-best round of the day among ASC players in the final day of the UMHB Invitational. Calderon finished the tournament with the third best total among ASC players and finished 20th overall in a tournament that also featured past national champion teams in NAIA and junior college as well as a top-5 NCAA Division III team. Sophomore Andrea Roach had her best tournament as a college player. Despite only having four players, the Mountaineers finished 11th overall.
