The #20 Indiana Wesleyan University women’s basketball team outlasted the #RV Foresters 67-64 Saturday afternoon at Luckey Arena. For IWU, it was their second W over HU this year with the first, a 60-59 decision, back on December 2.

The Wildcats are 19-7 overall, 11-3 in league play good for second place in the standings while Huntington is now 15-10 overall, 8-6 in league play for a share of the No. 4 spot in the standings with four regular season games to go.

Culler’s crew proved once again that they might be down, but never out. Facing their largest deficit of the game, 56-43, early in the fourth quarter, HU not only got back in it but had the ball with 25 ticks remaining and a chance to win it. Sarah Fryman and Hailey Krewald inspired the comeback as the duo combined to score 15 of their team’s 23 points in the quarter to dwindle the lead down to a single point at 65-64 inside of 30 seconds after a pair of missed freebies by the hosts.

Unfortunately, in the process of setting up for the last shot, Huntington coughed up the ball, compliments of IWU’ tough-nosed defense, for the 20th time turning the ball back over to the hosts with four seconds remaining. The rest, as the saying goes, was history, as HU was forced to foul and the Wildcats made good on both attempts to make for the three-point final as Fryman’s desperation three was well short.

The first half was lackluster for the visitors as they managed just 19 points to dig themselves into a ten-point hole by the midway point. A chance to regroup in the locker room was just what Culler and crew needed as they more than doubled their score by the end of the third and then carried that momentum into the fourth before being short-changed in their comeback.

Krewald, typically known for making big plays defensively, came up with big play after big play at the other end of the floor in the third to keep her team within striking distance. The 5-7 guard buried all three of her long balls and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the line to account for 13 of her 20 points during the ten-minute span.

Fryman also finished with 20 points to go along with a season-tying nine rebounds. Sam Hammel added 12 points, dished out two assists and swiped two steals.

The Foresters outshot IWU, connecting on 47.8 percent of attempts (22-for-46) while limiting their hosts to 42.1 percent (24-for-57). But the difference came down to turnovers and offensive rebounding. Wesleyan finished with 11 miscues to Huntington’s 20 and while HU won the battle of the boards, 35-28, IWU outscored the Foresters 15-7 on second chance points.

Elaina Ededuwa came off the bench to top IWU with 16 points and seven rebounds. Anna Imhoff collected 15 points and four assists while Brittany Washington added 12 points.

The Foresters are back at Platt Arena on Wednesday to host #RV Saint Francis at 7:00 p.m.

The Forester track team spent the weekend competing at the Don & Riley Zimmer Classic hosted by Trine University where the men claimed third and the women took fourth.

Adam Woods headlined the HU men by winning the heptathlon with 4,109 points. Highlighting his performance was taking first in pole vault (4.15m) and posting second place finishes in the 60 meters (7.33), long jump (6.06m) and shot put (10.62m).

Peyton Depriest also had a memorable outing by establishing a new school record in the 400 meters with his fourth-place finish time of 50.98. The previous record was 51.07 held by Kam Bailey from 2008.

Avniel Barrow earned points in both sprints, finishing 3rd in the 60 meters (7.13) and 6th in the 200 meters (23.22). The Foresters earned 19 points in the 600 meters by claiming spots two, three and four. Elijah Chesterman took 2nd (1:27.11), CJ Robertson placed 3rd (1:28.46) and Kaleb Bickel clocked in 4th (1:39.49).

Two other Foresters earned a top four finish. Cody Wiersema claimed 4th in the 800 meters with a time of 2:02.75 while Zach Williams’ toss of 39-07 in shot put landed him 4th place as well.

Other point-getters for Huntington included Adrien Gentrie in the mile (7th, 4:45.25), Kody Ahrens in the 5,000 meters (7th, 16:58.28), Luke Fillers in pole vault (6th, 12-05.75), Tyler Truelock in shot put (7th, 38-00.75) and weight throw (6th, 32-05) and Ryan Lockhart in weight throw (5th, 33-05).

Trine ran away with the men’s title with 233 points followed by Indiana Tech Developmental (116), HU (82), Adrian (69), Indiana Tech B (43) and Rochester (3).

The Forester women had its strongest outing in field events where Breanna Metz earned ten points in high jump with her leap of 4-05.25. Alyssabeth Cottle and Elise Cormany each posted a mark of 9-06.25 in pole vault to finish 2nd and 3rd respectively. It was a new PR for each as they now share the 4th highest vault in HU program history.

Holly Holton also established a new personal best in weight throw with her toss of 36-09.50 that earned her 5th place honors at the meet and the 9th spot in the Forester record books.

Jessica Chojnakci brought home a 1st place finish in the 600 meters by clocking in at 1:46.11, the 9th fastest time in program history. Nicole Pennington placed in both the 60 meters (4th, 8.21) and the 200 meters (7th, 27.56).

Other point getters for HU included Aspen Dirr in the mile (8th, 5:46.41), the 4×400 meter relay team (4th, 4:26.82) and Emily Wellsand in shot put (6th, 32-07.50) and weight throw (7th, 32-02).

Indiana Tech, last year’s national champs, claimed the women’s title with 150 points followed by Trine (117.5), Adrian (88.5), HU (57), Indiana Tech Developmental (55) and Rochester (10).

HU competes in the first ever Crossroads League Invitational hosted by Indiana Wesleyan next weekend.

The #8 Wildcats of Indiana Wesleyan University got out to an early lead Saturday afternoon at Luckey Arena and built on their advantage throughout the afternoon to enjoy a 100-73 win over the HU men’s basketball team. The W avenges an 87-84 loss to the Foresters dating back to December 2.

The loss drops Platt’s crew to 10-16 overall, 6-8 in league play. With four regular season games remaining, Huntington is tied with Taylor for 7th in the conference standings just two games behind 3rd place Bethel.

Tyler Arens and Zac Owens came off the bench to spearhead Huntington’s offense. Arens posted a team-high 21 points and five boards. Owens netted a career-best 17 points on 7-for-9 shooting which included two treys while Konner Platt added 11 points. Devon Merder cleaned up glass for HU with 11 rebounds.

Three Wildcats accounted for two-thirds of the hosts’ offense with Canaan Coffey topping all scorers with 22 points. Evan Maxwell dominated the paint with 21 points while Kyle Mangas tossed in 20. Ben Carlson earned the game’s only double double with 12 points and 11 boards.

IWU has established themselves as one of the best in the business offensively as they entered the day ranked #2 nationally in field goal percentage (52.3 percent) and 16th in scoring (87.6). On this given day, they more than backed up their rankings by shooting 58.3 percent (35-for-60) and scoring over the century mark for the third time this year.

The Foresters shot the ball well too. Platt’s crew finished 51.7 percent (30-for-58) but the major discrepancy came at the charity stripe where the Wildcats connected on 21 of their 29 attempts while HU struggled by going 5-for-15.

Minus a 6-6 tie early in the contest, Wesleyan held a lead from opening tip. The Foresters kept their hosts in sight until Coffey’s long ball with just under six minutes to go in the first half pushed IWU’s lead to 32-22. It proved to be a double-digit advantage that would stand the test of time except for a brief moment just before halftime.

The scoreboard read 45-33 by intermission and unfortunately, aside from Arens’ triple that cut it to 11 at 51-40 three minutes into the second half, the Wildcats gradually pulled away as they game wore on for the skewed win.

It doesn’t get any easier for Huntington as they host #3 Saint Francis on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.

It was a Wednesday night the #RV Huntington women’s basketball team (15-9, 8-5) would just as soon forget as they suffered a disappointing 77-62 loss to Grace College. The loss snaps a four-game win streak and matches Huntington’s largest margin of defeat this season.

For the Lancers, it was their third straight victory as they improve to 13-12 overall, 7-6 in conference play. Grace has had HU’s number lately as they currently hold a five-game win streak over Culler’s crew.

Defense has been Huntington’s pride and joy all season but on this given night, the stats tell a different story. The Lancers sizzled the nets to the tune of 55.6 percent – the highest percentage any opponent has shot against the Foresters all year.

Grace also forced their hosts into a season-high 26 fouls which translated into 35 free throw attempts – the highest number of free throws any opponent has shot against HU this year. The result was a GC squad that put 77 points on the board to a team that has, on average, been giving up less the 57 points per night.

Unfortunately, Huntington’s offense was also on the struggle bus. The combination was lethal as the Foresters, from opening tip, chased their visitors all night. HU shot 38.1 percent from the field (24-for-63) and connected on only ten of their 17 freebies for 58.8 percent.

The second quarter was Huntington’s low point as they managed just seven points to which the Lancers took full advantage. Down by five after the first ten minutes, HU had trimmed their deficit to two, 25-23, by the midway point of the second but then the wheels came flying off as Culler’s crew wouldn’t score again until after intermission.

The Lancers, on the other hand, closed out the quarter with 13 unanswered points for a comfortable 38-23 halftime lead.

The third quarter was proof of Huntington’s grittiness as they spent the first seven minutes clawing their way back in it to reduce the difference to a pair of points, 46-44, by the 2:42 mark. Sarah Fryman was the difference maker. The 5-9 forward scored six points and handed out four assists during her team’s 21-8 run.

However, the Foresters ran out of juice after that as Grace upped their lead back to five by the quarter’s end and proceeded to outscore their hosts by ten in the final ten minutes to make for the lopsided final score.

Fryman finished with 16 points and six assists to pace Huntington. Erin Mohr had a banner night by tossing in a career-best 14 points on 7-for-10 shooting. She also collected two blocks, an assist and a steal. Maddie Richer netted 11 points. Brooke Saylor grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, four of which were offensive.

Vironnica Drake topped all scorers with 18 points. Kaylie Warble came off the bench to add 15 points and ten rebounds for her second double double of the year while Brooke Sugg and Micaela Box each posted 11 points.

Huntington has a few days to regroup before heading to Indiana Wesleyan on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. tip-off with the #20 Wildcats.

Junior Mason Coverstone’s triple with 23 seconds remaining found nothing but the bottom of the net to put the game out of reach for the Huntington men’s basketball team on the way to an 88-80 win over a pesky Grace College squad.

The W wraps up the regular season sweep over the Lancers with HU’s first win, a 92-83 decision, dating back to December 5. The win also bumps Platt’s crew up a spot into sixth, tied with Marian, in the league standings. With five regular season games remaining, the Foresters are 10-15 overall, 6-7 in league play.

Prior to Coverstone’s heroics offensively, the 6-6 forward came up with a huge play defensively when he blocked Charlie Warner’s layup off the backboard to preserve his team’s three-point lead of 83-80 inside of a minute to go. His long ball on the next possession not only upped his team’s lead to six at 86-80 but also snapped a 9-0 run by the visitors.

Down by 12 at 83-71 with three minutes to go, the Lancers scored nine unanswered points to make for the said three-point difference. It was the closest Grace had been since the opening 30 seconds of play but they would get no closer as Coverstone’s three and a pair of freebies by Devon Merder closed out the game’s scoring for the final eight-point spread.

Huntington got off to their fastest start of the year by reeling off the evening’s first 18 points. The hosts scored on eight of their first nine possessions while holding the Lancers scoreless over the opening five minutes for the 18-0 skunking. It was an impressive display in front of a packed house and forced Grace to play catch up the rest of the night.

HU held GC at arm’s length the rest of the half for a comfortable 50-35 advantage by the midway point. Mike Bush was his team’s mainstay through the opening twenty minutes as he netted 17 points and handed out six assists with his main targets Konner Platt and Coverstone who finished with 11 and ten points respectively.

It was more of the same through the first 15 minutes of the second period as Huntington’s lead extended to as many as 18 points but never dipped below 12. Jaret Sons finally erased the deficit to single digits at 78-69 when he dropped in his third trey of the night with 5:13 on the clock.

Over the next two minutes, the two teams traded buckets several times to setup the final three minutes which proved to be a rollercoaster of emotion with HU finally getting the last laugh.

Bush finished with a game-best 22 points and a team-high eight assists. Platt added 16 points to go along with five rebounds and four assists. Trevor Lockwood also netted 16 points, tracked down a game-best seven rebounds and swatted two shots. The 6-8 big man currently ranks 13th in NAIA Division II in total blocks with 39.

Matt Jennings led Grace with 16 points. Sons finished with 15 points. Braxton logged the game’s only double double with ten points and ten assists while Logan Godfrey also chipped in ten points.

The Foresters had their second best shooting performance of the year by going 36-for-64 for 56.3 percent. They went 10-for-12 from the line and committed 12 turnovers. The Lancers finished 31-for-66 for 47.0 percent from the field and made good on 12 of their 13 freebies while coughing up the ball 13 times.

Coming into tonight’s contest, the Lancers (10-15, 3-10) had won their last three games. During their three-game win streak, they shot 53 percent from the field and got to the line 34 times on average.

HU hits the road on Saturday to face #8 Indiana Wesleyan at 3:00 p.m.


January 30, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on BOWLING Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Freshman Austin Schultz had a breakout performance over the weekend at the Cincinnati Collegiate Classic to guide the Forester men’s bowling team to a 5th place finish out of 22 teams.

The Valparaiso native posted a score of 2,023 over nine games for a 224 average to claim second overall individually and for his efforts was named to the All-Tournament team.

“Austin has been solid all season and this weekend he was able to apply all the lessons learned so far in his young collegiate career,” said Coach Mike Shockey.

Another rookie in Dustin Yocum was also able to snag a top 10 finish over weekend with his 198 average. He recorded a 1,788 good for 10th place. As a team, Huntington finished the weekend with a pin total of 8,821.

“This weekend was a best overall weekend for the guys this season,” said Shockey. “We have had games and blocks where we showed what we are capable of, but this was the most consistent we have been for an entire tournament.”

The tournament was a little atypical in that the weekend didn’t include any baker games, only nine traditional games.

On the women’s side, HU finished 7th out of 18 teams with a total score of 7,973 behind junior Brianna Cearbaugh. The right-hander averaged 196 over nine games to finish 14th individually.

Competing against some of the nation’s best which included eight Top 40 teams, the Foresters were in 8th after day one before moving up a spot by Sunday’s end. Currently, the HU women are ranked 33rd in the nation and are poised to earn both USBC and NAIA postseason berths.

“Both teams this weekend took big steps forward in showing the work we’ve done since the first practice of the season,” said Shockey. “We did a good job playing the patterns, communicating with each other and bowling together as a team.”

The Foresters are back in action this weekend at the McKendree Baker Challenge in Fairview Heights, Ill.

The Forester track and field team kicked off 2018 at the Defiance College Invitational over the weekend where the men claimed 5th out of eight teams while the women finished 8th.

Sophomore Avniel Barrow was a double winner for Huntington. Barrow established a new PR in the 60 meters with his 1st place finish time of 7.08. He then teamed up with CJ Robertson, Peyton Depriest and Bradey Gerke to win the 4×200 meter relay by clocking in at 1:32.86.

Depriest also brought home two golds. In addition to winning the 4×200 meter relay, the rookie also sprinted to a 1st place finish in the 200 meters with a time of 23.02 which is a new PR and moves him from 3rd to 2nd in the HU record books.

Senior Brooks Gerke, competing unattached, took 1st in the pole vault with a mark of 15-00.25. He bettered his best by over five inches and upped the school record accordingly.

Codi Wiersema ran a 4:34.63 in the mile to finish 2nd. Two other Foresters in Rodrigo Manzo (6th, 4:42.25) and Adrien Gentrie (7th, 4:44.55) also earned points for HU in that race.

The 4×400 meter relay team of Robertson, Depriest, Gentrie and Elijah Chesterman crossed the line 4th in 3:35.66.

Other point getters for Coach Childs’ crew included Adam Woods in the 60 meters (7th, 7.32) and high jump (6th, 6-00.00), Luke Fillers in pole vault (4th, 12-06.25), Kody Ahrens in the 3,000 meters (5th, 9:50.72), Heath Atkins in the 200 meters (7th, 23.82) and Zach Williams in shot put (8th, 40-04).

Adrian claimed the men’s title with 116 points followed by Albion (111), Grace (101), Saint Francis (72), Huntington (65), Alma (57), Defiance (48) and Olivet (45).

A partial roster competed for the HU women with Nicole Pennington topping the list. The senior speedster took 3rd in the 60 meters with a time of 8.23. She also earned points in the 200 meters by finishing 6th in 27.76.

Mariah Harter also ran the 60 meters where she finished 7th by clocking in at 8.40. Mara McFarland was the only other Forester to earn points with her 8th place finish in the 60 meter hurdles (10.87).

Albion won on the women’s side with 132 points followed by Adrian (129), Alma (92), Saint Francis (75), Defiance (55), Olivet (51), Grace (24) and Huntington (12).

The Foresters are back in action this weekend when they compete in the Don & Riley Zimmer Classic hosted by Trine University.


January 29, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The #RV HU women’s basketball team hosted its 10th annual Pink Out Saturday afternoon where they raised over $2,000 for the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer and recognized 14 breast cancer survivors at intermission with the cherry on top a 74-57 win over Spring Arbor University (8-15, 2-10).

With this win, the Foresters remain perfect in their Pink Out games at 10-0. It also marks HU’s fourth straight win as they improve to 15-8 overall, 8-4 in league play. Culler’s crew has strung together five consecutive wins over the Cougars with SAU’s last W over the Foresters dating back to January of 2016.

Sarah Fryman led a balanced attack for Huntington with 13 points and a team-best four assists. Maddie Richer added 12 points on 5-for-6 shooting which included two long balls. Brooke Saylor, saddled with foul trouble much of the first half, finished with 11 points, a game-best seven rebounds and three assists.

Hailey Krewald tossed in ten points and sniped three passes. To date, she has logged 44 steals to average 1.9 per outing to rank third among her league peers.

Cindy In’t Groen and Sam Hammel offered valuable minutes off the bench. In her 15 minutes of PT, In’t Groen netted nine points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals. Hammel tallied eight points and tracked down six rebounds, three of which were of the offensive variety.

For the fourth time this season, the Foresters shot over .500 for the game by going 26-for-51 for 51.0 percent. They missed just four of their 21 free throw attempts for 81.0 percent from the line and committed a season-low six turnovers to make for one of their most efficient offensive outings of the year.

The first quarter was up for grabs as the two teams swapped the lead several times and forced four ties but just over a minute into the second quarter, the Foresters established a permanent lead on Krewald’s “pick six.”

It was the first of two steals in a three-minute span Krewald would convert for easy layups. HU also buried three of their five threes in the frame to up their advantage to as many as 12 before heading into the locker room with a 34-27 lead.

The Cougars finished the game with 11 threes, the sixth time this year they’ve registered double-digit treys. It was the first five minutes of the third that the Foresters really felt the sting of SAU’s hot shooting as the visitors canned three on the way to trimming the lead to four, 42-38, by the 4:33 mark.

Spring Arbor went stone cold after that to finish the quarter 0-7 while HU rattled off 13 straight points to blow the game wide open, 55-38, heading into the fourth. Four different Foresters put points on the board in those last four minutes spearheaded by Fryman who scored four points and dished out two assists during the spurt.

It was an evenly played final ten minutes as 17 points still separated the two teams by game’s end for HU’s eleventh double digit victory of the year.

Autumn Goggin topped the Cougars with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists. Gracie Cabana came off the bench to record 14 points while Rachel Nelson added 12.

Next up for the Foresters is a rematch with Grace College on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. where they will look to avenge a 67-61 loss to the Lancers earlier this year.


January 29, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU men’s basketball team’s three-game win streak came to a halt Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena but not before they gave 14th-ranked Spring Arbor University (19-5, 7-5) all they could handle. No more than two possessions separated the two teams through the first 35 minutes before the Cougars jetted in front at the end for an 89-81 win.

The Foresters did a lot of things well. For the third straight game, HU shot over .500 from the field by going 31-for-59 for 52.5 percent. Platt’s crew also committed just four miscues, their fewest of the year, while forcing their visitors to cough up the ball eight times good for eight points.

Unfortunately, the Cougars did a lot of things well too. SAU won the battle of the boards 36-20 which included converting nine of their offensive rebounds into eight points. They also sizzled the nets at a clip of 56.7 percent from the floor (34-for-60) and were perfect at the line (13-for-13).

The opening twenty minutes was a see saw affair as the lead swapped back and forth ten times with the visitors taking a 40-39 lead into intermission. Zach Medendorp paced the Cougars with 13 points but it was the play of Konner Platt that really stood out. The 6-2 sophomore missed just one shot on his way to scoring 17 points which included burying all three of his triples.

Trevor Lockwood had a big half as well by tallying ten points down low as the pair accounted for all but 12 of their team’s first half points. The battle continued in the second frame with Mike Bush’s trey to start the half giving HU a 42-40 advantage. Eight minutes and six ties later, Mason Coverstone scored on back-to-back possessions for a 59-57 HU lead with 11:11 to go.

Huntington would go on to force two more stalemates over the next two-and-a-half minutes bringing the game total to 13 before Ben Geschke scored from downtown to give SAU a 64-61 lead they would hang on to the rest of the way.

After the Cougars finally extended the advantage to more than two possessions at 73-65 on a pair of freebies with just under five minutes remaining, Huntington fired right back with a 7-2 run over a two-minute span to trim the deficit to three.

It was a game where every possession mattered and much to the chagrin of the hosts, the Cougars closed out the game flawlessly by putting points on the board every trip down the floor in the final three minutes while the Foresters came up short on three of their last seven possessions to pave the way for the SAU win.

Platt enjoyed game-high scoring honors with 24 points on 9-for-12 shooting. Lockwood and Bush each tossed in 16 points while Coverstone added ten.

Tommy Hamilton netted 19 points as one of six Cougars to score at least ten points. Medendorp dropped in 17 points while other double digit scorers for SAU included Drew Zuidema with 12, Jeff Beckman with 12, Brandon Durnell with 11 and AJ Crawford with ten.

HU (9-15, 5-7) is back in action on Tuesday to host Grace College at 7:00 p.m. The Foresters got the best of the Lancers, 92-83, in first round action of conference play back on December 5.
