Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
November 5, 2015

Good luck to our Schreiner Soccer teams as each heads off north and west for their respective SCAC Championship Tournaments.  The women are the #2 seed and travel to Dallas where they get a first round (quarterfinal) bye and play on Saturday in the semifinals.  The men are headed back to Colorado Springs, CO and play Friday afternoon in the quarterfinals.  Congratulations to freshman Kyli Harvey of SU Women’s Soccer for earning SCAC Offensive Player of the Week.   Congratulations also to senior Alyssa Chapman was named Second Team All-SCAC in Volleyball.

Lastly, it’s just a little over one week before our women’s and men’s basketball teams begin their respective seasons.  More on that next week.

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

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  lost to #1-ranked Trinity, 2-1, in double overtime.  Just like the first meeting between the two programs, it took overtime for the top-ranked Tigers to slip by our Mountaineers.  Down 1-0 at halftime, Harvey’s goal tied the contest at 1-1 to force extra periods.  Sophomore Megan Morant was terrific in goal for SU, stopping 11 shots on the afternoon.  Harvey also had an assist in the Tuesday win over Southwestern which earned her the SCAC award.  For the season, she has seven goals to top all SU players.  On Saturday, Schreiner faces the winner of the TLU/Austin College match at 1:30 pm.

VOLLEYBALL:  defeated Concordia-TX, 3-2, to conclude their season.  Freshman Delanie Cauthen and senior Alyssa Chapman combined for 39 kills in the win.  Sophomore Lauren McQueen had 10 kills and 22 digs.  Freshman Ashley Myers had 43 assists and 19 digs as SU won four of its final six matches to finish strong.  The squad loses Chapman, Dee Bague and Caitlin Otten to graduation.

MEN’S SOCCER:  lost to #3-ranked Trinity, 4-1.  Senior Zach Garcia had the Mountaineers’ goal in the match off an assist by freshman Jacob Williams.  Freshman Brandon Anselmi and junior Blake Lawson combined for six saves.   The men face #3 seed University of Dallas on Friday afternoon in Colorado.  The two teams split their regular season matches, each winning at home by a score of 1-0.

MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY:  placed sixth at the SCAC Championships in Dallas last weekend.  Running in very soggy conditions, juniors Jose Bernal and Danny Gonzales were the first two Schreiner runners across the finish line.  Bernal was 40th while Gonzales just 17 seconds behind.  Sophomore Ricky Canales was the third Mountaineer to complete the race and was 51st.

WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY:  finished in seventh place at the SCAC Championships.  Senior Allyson Graybill finished first for SU, followed by freshman Cami Carrasco.  It was the first time all fall that Carrasco wasn’t the top Mountaineer.   Graybill was 48th followed 19 seconds later by Carrasco in 49th position.  Senior Shelby Spenrath was was 51st and freshman Lizzy Flora was 53rd.
