Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
October 22, 2014

Most of our fall teams ( the exception being cross country which are both off this week) are on the road this weekend.  Good luck to all of our Mountaineers wherever you will be!

Here is a quick recap of the past week’s action and activities:

WOMEN’S GOLF:  the Mountaineers concluded an excellent fall season with a runner-up finish (10 team field) at the Alamo City Classic.  SU was the top NCAA-III finisher in the field that included #4 Mary Hardin-Baylor, #16 Trinity and #30 Southwestern.  The only school ahead of Schreiner was #3-ranked NAIA (scholarship) UH-Victoria. Senior Melanie Dean placed top-five for the first time in her collegiate career and shot a tournament-best 36-hole total of 155 (78-77).  The 77 was also her low tournament round.  Senior Maddie Scheidler and sophomore Kaycee Bankert finished tied for eighth place with a two-round total of 160.  Those three players each completed the fall with scoring averages anywhere from 3-to-5 shots better than her previous best season.

MEN’S SOCCER:  lost to #3 Trinity at home, 3-0, and beat Southwestern, 1-0, on Senior Day.  The loss to Trinity was a competitive match against a very talented opponent but SU played well in the loss.  Against the Pirates, freshman Gregg Gutierrez’ goal in the 60th minute broke a scoreless tie.  Sophomore Blake Lawson and the Schreiner defense allowed just four shots and all were repelled.  With the win, SU improves to 4-7 in SCAC play with two weekends to go in the regular season.

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  lost to #2 Trinity, 7-0, and beat Southwestern, 1-0, on Sunday.  Junior Bria Howard’s first goal of the season was a big one and freshman goalkeeper Megan Morant and the Mountaineer defense made it stand up by limiting the Pirates to one shot on goal.   That shot came late in the match but Morant came up with the big save to preserve the win and move SU to 2-8 in SCAC play with two matches left before the postseason. tournament.

WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY:  finished in 7th place at the Concordia Invitational on Saturday.  Juniors Miranda Reagan and Allyson Graybill paced the Mountaineer effort and were seven seconds apart at the finish line.  It was the final regular season race for seniors Adriana Mercado and Victoria Ponse.

MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY:  only had four runners but all made improvements on their season best times.  Junior Kevin Perez again led the way with a time of 18:07, but got strong support from freshman Ricky Canales and sophomore Connor Ver Schuur as well as junior Elliot Frey.  Canales improved 1:15 (18:44) over his best time while Ver Schuur moved up by 1:40 after running in 18:47.

VOLLEYBALL:  lost at Our Lady of the Lake, 3-1, in non-conference action.  Junior Alyssa Chapman and freshman Lauren McQueen had eight kills each while junior Kaylei Sockol and freshman Samantha Martinez added seven and six respectively.  Senior Kelli Bolen had 25 assists and 10 digs and sophomore Courtney Reopelle had 14 to lead the team.
