Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
April 15, 2015

This Saturday is our final home (and regular season) matches for our women’s and men’s tennis teams.  As you’ll see below, we host Colorado College at 10:30 am and then TLU at 4:00 pm on that day (weather permitting).  In the morning match, seniors Austin Carrola and Stephen Rogers will be recognized on Senior Day.  The tennis teams have made tremendous strides in the past couple of years and this will be a final chance to recognize two players who were instrumental in the rise of the men’s team, while also seeing our regionally-ranked women’s team in action one final time.  The matches are at the Cree Tennis Center next to the MFC.  Our softball team also hosts four games with Austin College on Saturday and Sunday.  Lastly, our golf teams become the first squads to compete in the SCAC Championships this spring when they both tee off on Monday morning at Vaaler Creek in Blanco.

Here’s a quick update of last week’s action:

BASEBALL:  went 1-2 at Austin College.  In Friday’s 5-4 win in the opening game, freshman Jayme Kidder allowed just one earned run in 5 innings of work.  Junior Matt Barnett came in in the sixth and pitched three innings without allowing an earned run and junior Charlie Stewart earned his fourth save with a strong 9th frame.  Freshman Sam Pistrui had three hits and scored twice and Kidder drove in two runs while junior Marco Carreon also had two hits and scored once.

SOFTBALL:  lost a four-game series at the University of Dallas.   After a rough first outing, SU was very competitive in the final three games, just coming up short in each.   Freshman Samantha Cordon led the offensive effort with seven hits in the series.  Senior Brianna Rodriguez, sophomore Nichole Schoenherr and freshmen Lori Espinoza and Daneece Stewart all had four hits during the weekend.

WOMEN’S TENNIS:  due to weather, was only able to get in the doubles matches against Trinity on Saturday.  Because those were the only matches that were completed, the results will not count.
