Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
September 25, 2014

Congratulations to senior Jimmy Keener of the SU men’s golf team for winning his second SCAC Golfer-of-the-Week award.   Details are below.

Here’s a quick recap of the sports action over the past week:

WOMEN’S TENNIS:  had another big weekend, with five players particularly standing out.  Junior Leanna Haynes, sophomores Camila Anguiano and Alex Wheeler and freshmen Abby Knedlik and Samantha Sterling all found significant success.  Knedlik is still undefeated in her collegiate career and won singles “B” draw.   Wheeler won her first three matches with two of the wins coming at the expense of nationally-ranked Trinity players.

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  defeated Centenary, 1-0, in their only match of the week.  Freshman Beth Ann Davis scored her third goal of the season, and it was the game-winner in overtime to propel SU.  Freshman Megan Morant recorded her second collegiate shutout in goal.  The Mountaineers limited the Ladies to only four shots in the match.

MEN’S GOLF:  despite another record-setting day in the first round, the #3-ranked Mountaineers dropped to second place at the UMHB Fall Invitational despite senior Jimmy Keener earning his fourth collegiate title (and second straight).    Keener shot 72-70 while sophomore Matt McClung was fourth (68-76).  Nine-time NJCAA national champion Tyler Junior College edged SU by two shots for the title.

MEN’S SOCCER:  lost to #22-ranked Colorado College, 2-1, on Friday and beat Centenary, 2-1, in double overtime on Sunday.   The Mountaineers put a major scare into the Tigers of Colorado.  After CC scored first in the 11th minute, it took only five minutes for freshman Gregg Gutierrez to answer for SU (off a nice feed from sophomore Chase Smith).  The match was tied until the 74th minute when CC got the game winner.  Against the Gents,  Smith scored the game-winner with three minutes left in the second overtime.  Gutierrez scored the first goal off a nice feed from junior Ryan Hernandez.

VOLLEYBALL:  went 0-3 at the SCAC quadrangle, losing to Texas Lutheran, #17 Trinity and host Southwestern by 3-0 scores.   Junior Alyssa Chapman averaged nearly eight kills per match while sophomore Dee Bague and freshman Lauren McQueen average six.  Senior Kelli Bolen averaged 22 assists per contest.
