Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
September 17, 2008

Thanks to Hurricane Ike, several contests were cancelled or postponed, making the last week a fairly quiet one for Mountaineer teams. There is one big home event this weekend as SU Volleyball begins an extended run of home matches over the next 10 days. Friday night, SU hosts Sul Ross State in Edington Gym at 6:00 pm. Next week, the team has three more home matches so this is a great time to come out and support Schreiner Volleyball. Here's a quick rundown of last week's activity and the schedule for the next week.

VOLLEYBALL: Schreiner was 1-2 last week, beating NAIA scholarship program Huston-Tillotson, 3-2, and losing at #25 Southwestern, 3-1 and at TLU, 3-0, last night. The Mountaineers rallied from an 2-1 game deficit to take the final two games - and won game five going away, 15-7. Unfortunately for the team, there was no between-match break and SU had to immediately play a rested Southwestern team on their home court. Still, SU took one game in the 3-1 loss. Last night, Schreiner played very tough in game #1, holding a 21-17 lead, but TLU rallied. That loss deflated SU and the team couldn't recover in losing the final two games, 25-18, 25-16.

WOMEN'S SOCCER: Schreiner was 0-1 last week, losing to Texas Lutheran 6-0. Like the Volleyball team, SU found itself in a situation where they'd just played a double-overtime match the day before, yet had to come right back and play a top team. With injuries taking their toll on the SU roster, TLU was in control and were never threatened in the match. Several key players should be healthier this week after some rest and ready to go as the team travels to Brownwood on Friday.

MEN'S SOCCER: Schreiner didn't play in the past week as both matches in Dallas were canceled. Schreiner has two matches this weekend to start ASC play - both on the road.
