Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
September 4, 2013

The fall starts picking up speed this weekend.  Our volleyball team travels to California for a tournament, both soccer teams are in action on the road, our women’s and men’s cross country teams have their first meet of the season on Saturday and the 24th-ranked men’s golf team has its first fall tournament next Monday and Tuesday.

Here’s a quick recap of last week’s results:

MEN’S SOCCER:  went 0-1-1 last weekend.  Lost at UMHB, 2-1, and tied LeTourneau 1-1.  Head coach Paul Hayes is using the preseason matches to get his players minutes as often as possible.  SU took an early lead at UMHB on junior Justin Edwards’ goal 12 minutes into the match.  In the second half, the Cru tied the score on a long goal that just eluded freshman goalkeeper Blake Lawson.  The decisive goal came on a penalty kick that UMHB converted 12 minutes into the second half.  Schreiner had a PK opportunity in the first half but couldn’t convert it  and that ended up being the difference in the match.  Against LETU, the Mountaineers again took the lead in the first half, this time on a penalty kick by junior Zach Howard.  But LETU answered back minute later with the tying goal and that’s the way the match would end after 110 minutes.

VOLLEYBALL:  lost its only match, 3-0, at NAIA Our Lady of the Lake.  Schreiner battled OLLU tough in the first set, losing by the narrowest of margins 25-23.  At the beginning of the second set, the match turned when sophomore Dee Bague injured her knee.  The Mountaineers never recovered from seeing their teammate go down to injury and lost the final two sets.  Junior Callie Du Perier led the SU effort with six kills and added five digs.  Senior Jaemi Groves had 11 assists and seniors Jamie Burns and Shalon Bridges combined for 13 digs.

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  lost at NCAA Division II McMurry, 4-0, and lost to NAIA Texas Wesleyan, 5-0.  The Mountaineers faced two scholarship programs to open their season which proved challenging for the team under new head coach Nick Morrison, but Morrison’s goal is to get his young team experience going into conference season.   Senior Lizeth De La Torre played half of the first contest and all but 10 minutes of the second.  Although she gave up five goals combined, she also made 18 saves over her time between the pipes.  Freshman Heather Cagle had one of SU’s chances in the MCM match and sophomore Kelsie Nesbitt had the team’s chance in the TWU contest.
