Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
September 5, 2011

It was a busy weekend for Schreiner Fall teams as all five were in action. We are still waiting on word on how our cross country runners fared in Laredo but can provide updates on our other teams as well as a schedule for the week ahead. Tuesday night is the ASC opener for Schreiner Volleyball at Edington Center at 7:00 pm against Texas Lutheran. We hope you can come out and show your support for your Mountaineers against a perennial ASC powerhouse.

WOMEN'S SOCCER: beat NAIA scholarship Huston-Tillotson, 2-0, and lost at University of Dallas, 5-0. Freshman Rocio Carranza started her first collegiate game in goal and recorded a shutout in the win. It was a 0-0 tie at halftime, but SU posted the eventual game-winner as sophomore Maggie Rios scored on a nice assist from junior Becky Chiaro. Later in the second period, junior Amanda Moon scored off an assist from sophomore Lizeth De La Torre.

VOLLEYBALL: lost to Trinity, 3-1, and then went 1-2 against NAIA scholarship teams in Houston. Although SU lost to Trinity, it was a terrific match and the bigger and more experienced TU team had a great deal of trouble putting away a pesky young Schreiner team in front of a boisterous pro-SU crowd. At the St. Thomas Tournament in Houston, SU lost to Southwestern Assemblies of God, 3-0, beat Huston-Tillotson, 3-0 and lost to St. Thomas, 3-0. Schreiner played most of its roster and got a chance to see all of its players in game action and there were many strong performances over the three day stretch.

MEN'S SOCCER: lost at #4 Trinity and to NAIA Huston-Tillotson. Trinity took control early in the match and cruised to victory in their match. SU played much better against HTU. The Mountaineers scored their goal as senior Philip Anderson won a free ball and passed to senior Taylor Bontz in front of the net for the goal.
