Shakespeare at Pendleton T-Shirt Sale

June 1, 2017 General Comments Off on Shakespeare at Pendleton T-Shirt Sale Posted By: Jack Heller

Students,
I am doing a t-shirt sale as a fundraiser for Shakespeare at Pendleton. There are two designs, both created by one of our participants.
White on a black t-shirt is the Dogberry emblem, with the dog, rifles, and horn. This image is centered on the front of the shirt, with the Shakespeare at Pendleton logo on the back.
Our Midsummer image is a donkey’s head on the left chest in front, the Shakespeare at Pendleton logo on back, and the shirt color is forest green.
For either design, I’m asking $15 for youth sizes, $20 for adult sizes, add $2 for any size 2XL or larger, and $5 for mailing.
I will have a few shirts used in the show itself, sizes 2XL and 3XL. These I’m willing to let go for $10 (plus $5 mailing if needed). I will launder them before I mail these out. Each participant gets to have one of his two shirts sent home to his family, so I will know how many of each design is available next week.
I am low-tech here, but I can be paid via PayPal; my account is jackheller@hotmail.com. I also welcome cash, check, or money order sent to Jack Heller, English Department, Huntington University, 2303 College Avenue, Huntington, IN 46750. You can send your order to me by email to jackheller@hotmail.com or jheller@huntington.edu, or, perhaps there’s a message box at PayPal.
Let me know the style–Dogberry or Midsummer, the sizes, and, if necessary the addresses for mailing these. Your support of this fundraiser will be appreciated.

Transition in the offices of Student Services and Campus Ministries

May 18, 2017 General Comments Off on Transition in the offices of Student Services and Campus Ministries Posted By: Arthur Wilson

Campus Community,

It’s with mixed emotions that I announce to you that Amber Rensberger, Secretary to Student Services and Campus Ministries, will be leaving Huntington University at the end of the month. Over the past four years, Amber has played an integral role in the success of new student programs, the office of student services and campus ministries. Her service and presence at HU will be greatly missed.

I believe that it’s also fitting for us to celebrate her transition from HU to IWU as she’ll become a coordinator of campus visits. Those of us who’ve had the honor of serving with Amber know that the wildcats are gaining a gem!

The stakes could not have been higher for HU Baseball as they entered Day 3 of the NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round Tournament in Montgomery. Having lost against Faulkner University on Tuesday, the Foresters faced a must-win situation on Wednesday against fifth-seed Truett McConnell University (Ga.)

After three quiet innings to start the game, HU’s offense exploded for a four-run fourth inning, anchored by one of Huntington’s three multi-run home runs in the game; this one a two-run blast to left off the bat of Dylan Henricks. Henricks went 3-for-5 with four RBI and one run scored.

Additional firepower in the fourth inning was provided by a single to shallow left from Michael Crowley. TJ Lindstrand came in to run for Crowley and would eventually come around to score by way of a stolen base and a sacrifice fly from teammate Tyler Zimske. Following Zimske’s sac fly, Jamar Weaver singled to shallow right-center to bring Roser around to score from second.
Crowley was 3-for-5 at the plate and Zimske had four RBI on the afternoon. Weaver also register one RBI.

A Dalton Combs single to left followed by a Shea Beauchamp home run to deep left-center field in the seventh gave HU a 6 – 1 cushion. Beauchamp was a perfect 3-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored.

However, having earned the title of the comeback kids throughout the Montgomery Bracket, Truett McConnell was not about to roll over and give the game to HU. The Bears scored one run in the top of the fifth before putting up an additional four runs in the top of the eighth to make it a one-run game.

The bottom of the eighth was Huntington’s turn to light the scoreboard up and solidify a lead TMU would not challenge. Drew McLochlin, pinch hitting for Andy Roser, started the inning with a walk. Designated hitter Will Coursen-Carr advanced McLochlin to third with his single through the right side. With two on, Tyler Zimske launched a ball over the left field fence for HU’s third multi-run homer of the game.

Later in the inning, Combs reached on his second single of the game, Beauchamp drew a walk, and Henricks brought both of those runs in to score with his double to left-center. By the end of the eighth, the Foresters had established an 11 -5 lead. TMU would bring one more across in the ninth, but it wasn’t enough. Combs went 2-for-4 on the day.

Tanner Wyse got the start and the win for HU. This was his sixth win of the season. Wyse pitched 6 2/3 innings, scattering nine hits and only allowing one earned run. Tarrin Beachy came on in the seventh, allowing four runs on two hits before Coach Frame’s closer, Caleb Landrum, took the hill and recorded his eighth save of the season.

With the win, HU earns the right to play Faulkner University in the Montgomery bracket finals. The Foresters will have to defeat the Eagles twice in order to advance to the Avista-NAIA World Series in Lewiston, ID. HU’s record stands at 35 – 12.

The Foresters Baseball team brought their storied season to a close Wednesday night in a 4 – 8 decision against Faulkner University at Harrsion Field in the Montgomery Bracket of the NAIA National Championship Opening Round. This was HU’s second time facing top-seeded Faulkner here in Montgomery. The Eagles knocked the Foresters out of the winner’s bracket on Tuesday with a 3-0 shutout win.

A gritty and resilient Huntington team was bound and determined to avoid being shut-out a second time by Faulkner. The Eagles struck first with four runs in the third inning. A costly error plated Faulkner’s first run and was followed by a three-run home run to cap their four-run inning.

Andy Roser provided a much-needed offensive spark in the top of the fourth with a solo shot over the left field wall to put HU on the board.

Faulkner added three more in the fifth with a solo home run and back-to-back RBI singles.

HU responded again in the sixth inning. In back-to-back at-bats, Shea Beauchamp and Dylan Henricks were hit by pitches which gave HU two runners on with no outs. An Andy Roser ground out to second advanced both Beauchamp and Henricks. Will Coursen-Carr drew a walk to load the bases and Tyler Zimske was also hit by a pitch which resulted in Beauchamp scoring HU’s second run of the game.

Coach McCarthy’s crew was able to manufacture one more run in their half of the seventh, this time on another RBI single to right-center.

The Foresters weren’t done yet. Henricks led off the eighth with a solo home run. The solo shot was Henricks’ second of the day, having gone yard earlier against TMU. In the top of the ninth inning, Tyler Zimske also hit his second home run of the day when he unloaded on a ball that cleared the left field score board to bring the game back within four, but that’s as close as they would get.

Conner West took the loss for the HU. He pitched four innings, allowing five hits and six earned runs while also striking out two batters. Tarrin Beachy, Mason Coy, and Caleb Landrum also contributed on the mound. The bullpen trio pitched scattered four hits and two earned runs while striking out seven and only walking two in their four innings of relief.

While reflecting on this tremendous season and the careers of his 11 seniors, here’s what Coach Frame had to say about his team, “This is the best team I have ever had and a tremendous group of kids. They fought for three days in 90-degree heat, but just ran into a Faulkner team that was better. It is tough for this season to come to an end.”

The Foresters wrap up the year with an overall record of 35 – 13.

Best wishes to seniors Will Coursen-Carr, Tanner Wyse, Dalton Combs, TJ Lindstrand, Dylan Henricks, Michael Crowley, Shea Beauchamp, Andy Roser, Mason Coy, Drew McLochlin, and Tyson Dietrich.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – An 11-hour drive, a different time zone, and temperatures in the low 90s proved to be non-factors for the red-hot Forester’s baseball team as they opened up play in the NAIA Opening Round baseball tournament on Monday. HU posted a 12-6 win over the #2-seeded St. Thomas University Bobcats (FL) at Harrison Field on Faulkner University’s campus. Coach Frame’s crew came in to the tournament as the #3 seed in the Montgomery bracket carrying a 34-11 overall record.
As has been the case for the Foresters this season, they wasted no time scoring early and scoring often. After a double to right-center from Adam Roser, senior slugger Shea Beauchamp put Huntington on the board with a two-run blast over the left-center field wall to give HU the early 2-0 advantage. That lead proved to be short-lived, though, as St. Thomas’s Palenzuela delivered a two-run shot of his own in the Bobcats’ half of the 1st inning.
Roser helped HU regain the lead in the 2nd by delivering his second two-bagger of the game down the right field line to bring around Will Coursen-Carr, who reached on a walk earlier in the inning. St. Thomas added three more runs of their own over the next four innings while keeping HU’s bats at bay.
A Bobcat pitching change in the top of the 7th was just the spark HU needed. Beauchamp opened the inning by wearing a pitch on his left shoulder which was followed by a Dylan Henricks seeing-eye single to left center. By way of a two-out, three-run homerun to left field off the bat of senior transfer, Will Coursen-Carr, helped HU regain the lead, which HU would not relinquish. Tyler Zimske followed the home run with a stand-up double and would come around to score in the same frame to give HU a 7-5 lead.
The Forester bats continued to baffle STU’s pitching staff. Two more timely hits, this time from the bat of senior third-baseman, Andy Roser, accounted for four of HU’s final five runs in the 8th and 9th innings to help them cruise to the 12 – 6 finale. Roser finished the day with two hits and 4 RBI. His brother, Adam Roser collected three hits, two for extra bases. Henricks finished the night with two hits and Coursen-Carr tallied two hits as well as three RBI. Tarrin Beachy got the win on the mound for HU for his fifth win of the season. He came on in relief for starter, Mason Shinabery, who gave up five runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings. Beachy tossed a masterful 2 1/3 innings, allowing one run on four hits. Caleb Landrum pitched the final 1 1/3 inning, allowing zero runs on zero hits to close the game. Here is what Coach Frame had to say about his team’s performance: “I didn’t think we were great today, but we just kept grinding out at-bats. Mason kept us in the game and Tarrin and Caleb gave us a lift in relief. St. Thomas is an outstanding team and we feel fortunate to get the win.”
With their game 1 win, HU stays in the winner’s bracket and will face #1 seed Faulkner University on Tuesday at 4:30 pm EDT.
