Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
February 13, 2013

Basketball is ending its regular season this Saturday with two home games. It will be Senior Day for Manny Longoria on the men’s team, as well as Colby Adolph, Mari Duran, Jasmin Copeland, Jessica Galindo and Kristy Guerra from the women’s team so please come out and thank these soon-to-be graduates for their contributions to SU over their playing careers.

Speaking of basketball, congratulations to junior A.J. Myres who was named ASC West Division Player of the Week after averaging 29 points in two road games last week.

Saturday is also the season opener for SU Softball with a doubleheader starting at 1:00 pm at Mountaineer Field. New head coach Jessica Peterka leads her squad onto the diamond for the first time. If that wasn’t enough home entertainment, SU Baseball also plays Friday and Saturday at Mountaineer Field against ETBU. A lot to do and enjoy and all of it is free! Please support your Mountaineers.

Here’s a quick look back at action from the last week:

MEN’S GOLF: finished second out of six teams at the Jack Brown Memorial in Laredo. Schreiner was the only non-scholarship team in the field yet finished as tournament runner-up. Sophomore Cheyne Kendall won his second collegiate tournament title, shooting 69-74-74. Freshman Phillip Stewart also made the All-Tournament team after rounds of 77-70-75. Sophomore Zach Oliver had his collegiate best round of 73 on Tuesday.

WOMEN’S GOLF: finished third overall among eight schools at the Jack Brown Memorial. Like the SU men, the 8th-ranked (in NCAA D-III) Mountaineers were the only non-scholarship team competing. Senior Gabby Martinez finished in sixth place individually after shooting rounds of 80-80. Freshman Courtlynd Miller, playing in the top-5 for the first time, shot 83 as did fellow freshman Sierra Sanchez. Freshman Amber Hernandez shot 85 in round two and was second among the SU players at 172.

BASEBALL: went 2-2 last week. Took two out of three games at Huston Tillotson. Won the first, 4-1, the second 10-1 but lost the third 8-2. Senior Matt Valley got his first win on Friday, throwing a complete game and just allowing one run. Junior Daniel Brewer ran his record to 2-0 by also throwing a complete game (7 innings) and allowing just one run. In Saturday’s finale, two errors led to four unearned runs in the loss. SU also lost at #11 Trinity last night.

MEN’S TENNIS: lost to NCAA Division II St. Mary’s, 6-3. Freshman Marco Hinojosa scored a tough three set win at #4 singles and SU added walkover wins at #3 doubles and #6 singles. Junior Nathan West and freshman Brice Conoly nearly added to that total but were edged at #2 doubles, 9-8 (9-7).

WOMEN’S TENNIS: lost to NCAA Division II St. Mary’s, 9-0. Senior Kelley Spahn played her first spring match at lost at #5 singles, 6-2, 6-2.

MEN’S BASKETBALL: lost at top-ranked UMHB and at #3-ranked (South Region) Concordia-TX. As noted above, A.J. Myres had a big couple of games. He scored 38 points on Saturday on 14-for20 shooting in just 31 minutes in the loss. Sophomore Stevan Guerrero averaged 16 points per game last week as well.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: lost both of their games, at UMHB and at CTX last week. With the losses, SU was eliminated from post-season tournament consideration. Freshman Kelsie Jackson averaged 10 points per game and junior Bailey Harris averaged nearly eight.
