Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
February 4, 2016

Most of our spring sports get their respective seasons started this weekend.  On campus (and in Kerrville), the SU women’s and men’s tennis teams host the Schreiner Invitational on Friday and Saturday.  Men’s matches are at the Cree Tennis Center on campus while the women’s matches are at the HEB Tennis Center next to Hal Peterson.  Also, congratulations to junior Sabriyyah Fennell for being named SCAC Player of the Week!

Here’s a quick rundown on last weekend’s basketball action:

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL:  earned a pair of big home wins – defeating Austin College in overtime (86-80) and beating the University of Dallas (55-49).  As mentioned, Fennell was the biggest contributor, averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds in those two games.   Senior Cassandra Aleman scored 27 points in the AC victory.  Senior Kelsie Jackson averaged 12 points and 5.5 rebounds.  The women improved to 6-3 in SCAC play and are solidly in the upper half of the conference standings heading into the final road weekend.

MEN’S BASKETBALL:  lost 79-57 to Austin College and then beat UDallas, 73-70.   Three Mountaineers scored in double digits in Saturday’s win, led by junior Jared Thompson’s 21 points.  Sophomore Quentin Lenard scored 12 while sophomore Blake Kelley added 11 points.  The men are now 2-7 in league play heading into a big weekend on the road.
