Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
September 22, 2010

This weekend will be one of the busiest weekends of the fall, as Volleyball, Men's Soccer and Women's Soccer all have a pair of home matches on Friday and Saturday. Men's and Women's Cross Country are competing at the Texas D-III Championships and Men's and Women's Tennis are at the ITA Regionals. Women's Golf starts it's fall schedule early next week. We are now officially into the conference schedule for MSOC, WSOC and VB so these matches are the one that really matter. We hope you can come out and support your Mountaineers in action on Friday and Saturday. Here's a look back at last week's action:

VOLLEYBALL: went 2-0 last week. Beat Sul Ross State, 3-0, won in 5 sets at Howard Payne last night. The Mountaineers have rebounded from the loss to TLU with two strong performances. Last night's win was highlighted by great performances by a pair of freshmen. Hallett Dickey had 16 kills and Jaemi Groves had an .857 attack percentage and 36 assists. Seniors Caitlin Gayle (9 kills) and Misty Fletcher (15 digs) also were key performers in the road win. SU faces one of it's most challenging weekend's on Friday and Saturday, both matches at home.

WOMEN'S SOCCER: went 1-1 last week. Defeated TLU, 2-1 and lost to NAIA Texas Wesleyan, 6-0. The TLU win was great for the young Mountaineer squad. It was the first time in the program's history that SU had beaten TLU. SU fell behind early, but sophomore Haley Powers, who'd missed several matches with an injury, tied the match in the final minutes of regulation. In overtime, sophomore Veronica Kloss took a free kick that bounced over the head of the TLU goalkeeper for the game-winner. SU sophomore goalkeeper Genevieve Monroe stopped nine of 10 shots she faced.

MEN'S SOCCER: went 0-2 last week. Lost to TLU, 3-1, and lost to NAIA TWU in overtime, 3-2. Visiting TLU surprised Schreiner with two early goals and were never threatened in the ASC opener. Against, Texas Wesleyen, Schreiner played much better and the two teams traded goals. Both times TWU took the lead, SU answered. Junior Philip Anderson scored the Mountaineers first goal and junior Taylor Bontz got the second. This was the final non-conference match for SU this fall.

WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY: finished 12th at the UTSA/Ricardo Romo Invitational. In a field with all scholarship and D-I teams, except for Schreiner, senior Liz Calderon paced the Mountaineer effort. Her time of 23:11, in her first collegiate race, was followed by freshman Cara Pilgrim. Junior Genevieve Castillo was third among SU's runners.

MEN'S CROSS COUNTRY: finished 7th at the UTSA Invitational. Juniors Ryan Maia and Dionel Alves continued their strong early season start with solid finishes in the event. Maia edged Alves by six seconds. Junior Tom Pappas continued his improvement and was third among SU's participants.
