First off, congratulations to senior AJ Myres for earning D III News honorable mention
All-American in basketball. It is believed that he is the first person to earn All-American
honors in the NCAA era in any of our sports. Also, congratulations to junior Zach
Oliver for earning SCAC Golfer of the Week. It is his second time earning the award
during the spring season. Stories on each student-athlete can be found at http://athletics.schreiner.edu.
We’re now entering the final month for our spring sports teams so everything is cranked up a notch. It’s the last big home weekend where we have baseball, softball and both tennis teams all in action on campus so come on out to support your Mountaineers. Here’s a quick recap of last week’s action.
MEN’S GOLF: shot the low score of the final round, by 14 shots, and rallied from third place to champions at the JDG/UT-Dallas Spring Classic. In claiming its second straight title, SU knocked off the #5, #12 and #24 teams in the nation. Oliver earned GOTW by placing second overall after rounds of 74-83-72. His 72 was the best score of the day – by three shots. It is his third straight runner up finish in three spring tournaments. Junior Cheyne Kendall finished third overall and freshman Matt McClung was fourth, giving SU three of the top four spots in the tournament. Currently ranked #20, the national ranking should improve once the latest polls are released.
MEN’S TENNIS: went 2-0 last weekend, beating NAIA Dallas Baptist (6-3) and edging fellow SCAC partner Austin College (5-4). Sophomore Teg Lozano was again the man of the hour. Tied at 4-4 and the last players on the court, it was all on Lozano whether SU was to win or lose. Lozano lost the first set, but rallied to sweep the second and third sets to win the match. In the two matches, Schreiner’s doubles teams were 5-1. Lozano and sophomore Brice Conoly went 2-0 on the day and sophomore Christian Casillas won both of his doubles matches with different partners.
SOFTBALL: went 1-1 vs. Puget Sound last Friday. Freshman sisters Victoria and Nichole Schoenherr combined for four hits, three runs and an RBI as SU defeated the Loggers 5-2 but lost 2-1 in 12 innings in the other game. Freshman pitcher Destiny Rodriguez went the distance in both games to go 1-1 on the day. Senior Victoria Alcozer had an RBI single in the win and freshman Kelsey Schwind had two RBI and sophomore Holly Molenaar added an RBI single as well.
WOMEN’S TENNIS: went 1-1 on Friday. Lost to NAIA (scholarship) Dallas Baptist (7-2) and then defeated Austin College (8-1). Sophomore Brooke Ohlman won her match at #3 doubles with freshman Alex Wheeler against DBU and freshman Brittany Garza won at #6 singles, 6-0, 6-0. Sophomore Leanna Haynes also had a big day as well.
BASEBALL: went 1-2 vs. Austin College last weekend. Schreiner won the first game of the series, 5-4, despite four errors. Sophomores Matt Barnett and Mikey Garcia combined to allow zero earned runs in the game. On Saturday, Schreiner and senior Joe Osinski took a 5-0 lead into the 6th inning. Osinski was working on a one-hitter but struggled with wildness in the sixth. AC rallied for an improbable 7-5 win and then took advantage of seven Schreiner errors in the finale for a 14-3 win.
