Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
October 29, 2015

This is the final weekend of regular season play for volleyball and soccer.    Good luck to our women’s and men’s cross country teams as they both head to Dallas for the SCAC Championships on Saturday morning.  Women’s Soccer has already clinched the #2 seed in next week’s SCAC Tournament and is in the process of re-writing the record book for NCAA-era wins, shutouts, etc.  Men’s Soccer has turned things around in the second half of the season and has a bid to the tournament locked up but is still awaiting their seed in next week’s event.   Congratulations goes to junior Kaycee Bankert for earning her second SCAC Golfer-of-the-Week award of the fall as the women’s golf team has moved into the national rankings at #24.

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

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  won a pair of key SCAC road contests to run their win streak to four matches.  Defeated TLU and Southwestern by identical 1-0 scores to lock up the #2 seed heading into Saturday’s home finale with #1-ranked Trinity.   Freshman Kayla McConnell scored the match’s only goal in the sixth minute in the win over TLU and it was sophomore Laura Atzeni who tallied the game-winner over the Pirates off an assist by freshman Kyli Harvey.  Freshman goalkeeper Taylor Roberson recorded both shutouts and now owns the single-season school record in that category.

VOLLEYBALL:  are easily playing their best at the end of the season, going 3-and-2 last week.   Closed out the SCAC regular season with a 3-1 record at a cross divisional in Colorado.  Defeated Dallas and Austin by 3-2 scores and beat Centenary, 3-1.  Lost to NAIA ranked Our Lady of the Lake, 3-2, in the home finale that was the final home match for seniors Alyssa Chapman, Caitlin Otten and Dee Bague.  Have a non-conference Halloween Tournament this weekend in Seguin.

MEN’S SOCCER:  tied TLU, 0-0, on Sunday and beat Southwestern, 2-1, on Tuesday.  Junior Blake Lawson got the shutout on Sunday.  A pair of goals by sophomore Gregg Gutierrez spotted the Mountaineers with a 2-0 lead and SU overcame a late PK goal to preserve the key win.  The Mountaineers are 5-3-1 in the second half of the year and have moved into a tie for fifth place in the league with only a home match vs. #3 Trinity (Sunday, 3:00 pm) left on the schedule.

WOMEN’S GOLF:  finished in third place at the Abilene Invitational, trailing only #18 UMHB and #11 UT-Tyler.  Bankert was again the top Mountaineer, shooting 75-77 to place fourth overall.  Freshman Lauren Leslie carded an 80-81 result to place 12th.  Freshman Piper Gleadhill rebounded from her first round with a final round 78.  Freshman Kena Cox had to miss both the practice round and first round due to illness but gutted out 18 holes on Tuesday to somehow post an 84.
