Huntington University OTD Students Publish in the Journal of Occupational Therapy Education

December 18, 2017 General Comments Off on Huntington University OTD Students Publish in the Journal of Occupational Therapy Education Posted By: Nathan Short

The broad spectrum of occupational therapy practice often limits inclusion of specialty content within the general curriculum which is designed to prepare graduates at a generalist level. Recently, several Huntington University OTD students developed a creative solution for students interested in the specialty area of hand therapy by forming the Huntington University Hand Interest Club. In the first year of the nascent club’s operation, students implemented evidence-based journal article review, related guest lectures and educational modules on advanced topics, a therapy-based service project, as well as publication of a peer-reviewed article in the Journal of Occupational Therapy Education (JOTE), outlining their club as a model for inclusion of specialty content in occupational therapy curriculum. Their peer-reviewed article is open-access and the full-text can be found here: https://encompass.eku.edu/jote/vol1/iss3/6/.

The club has outlined their Spring semester agenda including hosting the outgoing president of the American Society of Hand Therapists, Gary Solomon, for an educational module on custom orthotic fabrication which will serve as a rich supplement to their foundational orthopedic and hand-related content. The club members have also been able to network with hand therapists nationwide and many will be completing Level II clinical rotations at some top hand surgery and therapy centers across the country.

Our students continue to exceed expectations and leave a legacy of Christ, Scholarship, & Service here at HU!

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

December 18, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Ant’Treasia Patton’s ten-footer bounced around the rim before dropping through the cylinder at the buzzer to lift Cumberland University (9-4) past the HU women’s basketball team Saturday afternoon at Dallas Floyd Gymnasium. The loss sends the Foresters into Christmas break with a 9-4 record.

Poor shooting and turnovers haunted Culler’s crew as they managed just 37.0 percent shooting from the field (17-for-46) and coughed up the ball 20 times. The Phoenix posted similar numbers as they turned in a 36.2 percent shooting performance while logging 19 miscues to make for a contest that came down to the wire.

The visitors took a 44-42 advantage into the fourth and things looked promising as Hailey Krewald dropped in her fourth triple to start the quarter after which Brooke Saylor scored on a put back less than 60 seconds later to push the lead to seven at 49-42 with just over eight minutes remaining.

Unfortunately, Sarah Fryman’s freebies with just over two minutes to go proved to be HU’s final points of the ball game. The six-minute scoring drought allowed CU to climb right back in it, tying it up at 49s by the midway point and then again 30 seconds after Fryman’s free tosses before Patton’s heroics at the buzzer sent the handful of Cumberland fans into a frenzy.

Aside from the start of the fourth, the third quarter was Huntington’s only other bright spot. After scoring just 22 points through the first twenty minutes for a 27-22 halftime deficit, the Foresters doubled their offensive output in the next ten minutes by going 7-for-12 from the field, three of which were from long range, while canning five of their six free throws.

Krewald, Casey Morton and Saylor accounted for all but two of their team’s 22 points in the third. Krewald scored five of her team-high 16 points in third. Morton finished with ten, eight of which came in the third, while Saylor added 12 with all but five of those points also coming in the third.

Saylor grabbed a team-best 12 rebounds and handed out two assists and swiped two steals. Krewald tracked down seven boards and handed out three dimes.

Patton enjoyed game-high scoring honors with 17 points. Micah Norris was the only other Phoenix to finish in double digits by tossing in 11 points.

Rebounding was a lopsided affair with the hosts snagging 41, 16 of which were offensive, to HU’s 29. Kaitlin Oliver corralled 14 caroms, seven at each end of the floor, to register game-high rebounding honors.

HU has nearly a two-week break before returning to the friendly confines of Platt Arena to host IU East on December 28 and Cincinnati Christian on December 29.
