MEN’S GOLF

October 26, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S GOLF Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU men’s golf team wrapped its fall season with a 17th place finish at the Whistling Straits Intercollegiate hosted by Taylor University earlier this week. The Foresters fired a 321 on Monday and followed up with a 340 on Tuesday to start and end in the 17th spot out of 20 teams.

“This was a very strong field and an excellent opportunity for us to see where we stand competitively,” said Coach Sholund. “Overall, it was not a strong result for us but there were many positives we can take from it.”

HU was led by Luis Esteban who posted a 155 (77, 78) for 24th overall out of 100 golfers. Cale Carr turned in a 166 (76, 90) for 65th place. Andrew Weisheit carded a 169 (85, 84) for the 76th spot. Zakry Cummings finished 84th with a 172 (84, 88) while Chandler Rang scored a 175 (84, 91) to finish 91st.

Coach Sholund is optimistic about his group of guys. “I think a course as tough as Whistling Straits with the 25-35mph winds in which they played on Tuesday will reveal a player’s strengths and weaknesses. It did that for us this week and that is what we will focus on learning from. We have certainly showed growth this fall as a program and we are now ready to work hard in the off-season to continue that improvement.”

Texas Wesleyan took home the title with a 585 followed by UNOH (601), Northern Michigan (608), Taylor (618), Viterbo (620), Cardinal Stritch (621), Grand View (622), Embry-Riddle (623), Georgetown (625), Indiana Tech (629), Saint Francis (633), Holy Cross (635), Sterling (647), Central (650), Parkside (654), Grace (654), HU (661), Roosevelt (661), St. Xavier (678) and Concordia (706).

The Forester women’s golf team brought home an eighth place finish from the Whistling Straights Intercollegiate to conclude the fall portion of their schedule. After posting a 357 on Monday, HU turned in a 401 on Tuesday to finish with a 758.

Playing in a field of 49 golfers, Betsy Schroeder claimed tenth by firing a 168 (83, 85) to pace her team. Alexandria Maris finished second for HU, 29th overall, with a 192 (89, 103). Leah Thompson posted a 196 (92, 104) for 35th. Megan Higgins placed 39th with a 202 (93, 109) while Sophie Frazier turned in a 225 (108, 117).

“The ladies did very well this week,” said Coach Sholund. “This was a strong field that provided us an opportunity to see where we are in our third year as a program.

“The Irish Course at Whistling Straits is a world class challenge and was a great opportunity for the players to learn what areas of their game need improvement under competition against top teams. We are certainly gaining confidence in our ability to compete and a strong offseason focusing on the right things will help us be even more competitive in the spring.”

Northern Michigan topped the leader board with a 667 followed by Taylor (675), Embry Riddle (677), Saint Francis (699), Cardinal Stritch (703), Viterbo (719), Holy Cross (751), HU (758), St. Xavier (797) and Sterling (842).

MEN’S SOCCER

October 26, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

With one regular season game remaining, the Forester men’s soccer team slipped past Marian University Wednesday evening 1-0 to move into a tie for fourth with Goshen in the league standings.

For the Knights, it was their seventh one-goal loss of the year as they drop to 5-10 overall, 2-6 in conference play.

Huntington doubled up Marian in shots taken 12-6 and finally registered the game-winner when Valentin De Coninck served a ball into the box that Jake Erlandson got a head on for his sixth goal of the year with just over 11 minutes remaining. It’s the second straight game the freshman defender has found back netting.

Troy Hester picked up the shutout, his third of the year in goal. As a team, the Foresters have held opponents scoreless six times this fall.

“I am so proud of the boys for grinding out this result,” said Coach Lawson. “Marian is a very difficult team to break down with some weapons on the counter attack. We did a fantastic job on the defensive side of the ball for another clean sheet.”

HU wraps up the regular season with senior day on Saturday against Taylor at 2:00 p.m.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

Playing in their last regular season home game of the year, the HU women’s soccer team defended King Stadium by holding #15 Marian University (13-2-2, 6-0-2) scoreless for a 0-0 draw on Wednesday afternoon to earn an all-important point in the race to the finish line.

With one regular season game remaining against Taylor on Saturday, the Foresters are currently tied for fourth in the league standings with the Trojans. After Spring Arbor and Marian, just one game separates the next five teams which means there’s a lot riding on Saturday’s results around the league.

Wednesday’s match was just the second time this season the Knights have been shutout, the first time dating back to August 22 against defending National Champions University of Northwestern Ohio.

While MU fired off 19 shots to HU’s six, both teams had several quality opportunities that just missed the mark. Marian, a squad that entered the contest outscoring their opponents 51-12, was paced by Kellie Cavanaugh who finished with nine shots, four on frame, while Brandi Spear and Matéa Knispel
each registered two for HU.

The shutout is Huntington’s sixth of the year and their fourth double overtime match. HU moves to 8-7-2 overall, 4-3-1 in league play.

“We came into this match knowing a great deal was on the line,” said Coach Burge. “Not only did we want to hold off a very strong offense in Marion, but we knew a loss would not be acceptable. The girls battled, possessed and communicated their way through an extremely tough 110-minute match.

“Although we obviously would have loved to bury a few of the great looks we had at the net, this result against a high ranking crew shows just how hard these ladies have worked this season and I’m extremely proud of them.”

The Foresters travel to Taylor on Saturday for the high stakes match slated to begin at 7PM.

Running against some of the best competition in the Midwest, the Huntington men’s cross country team finished 19th out of 24 teams at the NAIA Great Lakes Challenge hosted by Aquinas College Saturday afternoon while the Forester women did not score as a team.
