Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
October 29, 2014

Although this is the final week of the regular season, both of Schreiner’s soccer teams have qualified for the SCAC Championship Tournament which will be played in a week and half in Seguin. Both teams finish their regular seasons on the same field this Friday vs. Texas Lutheran.  Our volleyball team completes its season this weekend at home with the Schreiner Classic (3 matches).  And last but certainly not least, good luck to our Mountaineer Cross Country teams as they travel to Boerne, TX for the SCAC Championship meet on Saturday morning at 10:00 am.  More information on all of these are below.

Here’s a recap of last week’s action:

MEN’S SOCCER:  went 1-1 last week.  Traveling to Colorado Springs, CO, SU lost at nationally-ranked Colorado, 2-0.  Then, after a trip to Shreveport, LA, the Mountaineers defeated Centenary, 2-1.  After trailing 1-0 at halftime, second half goals by senior Justin Edwards and sophomore Dakota Pebworth rallied the team for the win.  Schreiner is 5-8 in SCAC play and 7-8 overall.  Edwards is in a three-way tie for the team lead in goals with four on the season.

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  tied their only match of the week, 2-2, at Centenary. After also trailing 1-0 on the road, freshman Ruth Blackburn tied the contest in the 28th minute.  Her second goal of the match (and 5th goal of the year) put SU up 2-1 and that was the lead with 90 seconds remaining in regulation when the Ladies tied the score.  Two overtimes could not change that situation so the match was halved.

VOLLEYBALL:  went 1-4 this past week.  Lost the first three matches of the SCAC Cross Divisional before defeating Centenary, 3-0, in the finale.  Lost last night to Howard Payne at home, 3-0.  Sophomore Dee Bague and freshman Lauren McQueen tied for team-high honors in kills with nine each.
