VOLLEYBALL

A trip to Saint Francis on Wednesday evening marked the start of the second go around in the Crossroads League but it was a much different outcome than the Forester volleyball team was hoping for. Back on September 8, HU enjoyed a 3-1 win over USF but this time the Cougars got the best of their visitors 3-1 (22-25, 25-17, 25-19, 25-18) at Hutzell Athletic Center.

“Tonight Saint Francis just played better than us,” noted Coach Shondell.

It didn’t start out that way, however, for the Foresters as they picked up the win in set one. Unfortunately, not much went right for them after that and nowhere was that more evident than in the offensive bottom line. After posting 15 kills in the opening set, HU managed just single-digit kills in each of the next three sets.

In addition to HU’s offensive struggles, Saint Francis (6-13, 5-4) is playing some of its best volleyball as of late. Last time their loss to HU was their fourth straight while tonight was their third-straight win. Huntington (9-11, 4-6), on the other hand, has lost its last three.

Behind 16 kills from Cassidy Rammel, offense came easy for the Cougars as they registered 20 more kills than HU and posted a season-best .254 hitting percentage to Huntington’s .088. USF was also at their best defensively – tallying a season-high 12.5 blocks as a team.

For Huntington, Danielle Gurwell, Brandy Michie and Lauren Cresse each finished with seven kills while Josie Beaver and Haley Longley added six apiece. Emily Hubby handed out 19 assists.

Gurwell also paced her team defensively with 3.5 of her team’s nine blocks. Kate Cobb collected a game-best 28 digs. Elaine Bredensteiner tied a career-best with four service aces.

The Foresters take a break from conference play with a home match with Lourdes on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.

The HU women’s tennis team locked in the No. 3 seed in the league standings with an 8-1 win over Spring Arbor University Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts. The Foresters have just one league match remaining against Goshen, a team still looking for its first win of the season.

Huntington is currently 10-2 overall, 6-2 in Crossroads League action. IWU sits atop the league with a perfect 8-0 CL record while Marian is No. 2 with seven wins against just one loss.

The Foresters road trip to St. Mary’s College on Thursday before wrapping up regular season play against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

The Huntington men’s tennis team moved into a three-way tie for second place in the league standings with a convincing 8-1 win over Spring Arbor University Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts. They now claim a 6-2 record in league play, a 7-3 record overall.

With one conference match remaining, IWU is undefeated in league play at 8-0 while HU’s tie is with two teams that will battle it out on Saturday in Marian and Spring Arbor.

A win over Goshen on Saturday would ensure the Foresters at least a third place finish in the final standings. Coach Eckert’s squad could finish as high as second should SAU beat Marian and HU beat the Maple Leafs.

The Foresters wasted little time securing today’s win as they swept doubles while Brody Worl was busy picking up a fourth point at No. 6 singles for an early lead that was never really challenged.

Huntington hosts Purdue Northwest on Thursday at 4:00 p.m. before they face Goshen on Saturday.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

September 26, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Huntington University Brandi Spear was tabbed this week’s Crossroads League Offensive Player of the Week for women’s soccer as announced by the league office earlier today.

The senior forward had a banner week last week to help guide the Foresters to a 1-1 record. Spear scored HU’s lone goal in her team’s 2-1 loss to Lawrence Tech on Wednesday before posting a career-best four goals in Huntington’s 8-0 blowout over Bluffton University on Friday.

Spear tallied a hat trick in the first 45 minutes against the Beavers before scoring again just after halftime for her impressive four-goal performance. To date she has seven goals and one assist on the year.

The Foresters’ record is 4-4-1. Coach Burge’s crew opens up league play on Saturday with a road trip to Goshen for a 7:00 p.m. matchup with the Maple Leafs.

The Forester men’s tennis team (8-2) had no trouble with the Pilots of Bethel College as they handed their hosts an 8-1 loss Saturday afternoon at Knollwood Country Club.

It’s a race to the top for Huntington as they remain in the hunt for a conference title. With just two league matches remaining, Huntington is tied for third with Marian in the standings with a 5-2 CL record.

IWU is sitting atop the league with a perfect 7-0 record while Spring Arbor, at 6-1, claims the No. 2 spot. The last time the Foresters won the conference regular season dates back to the fall of 2013.

The Foresters have a perfect opportunity to climb a spot in the standings on Tuesday at Klopfenstein Courts when they go head-to-head with Spring Arbor University at 4:00 p.m.

In one of the most dominate performances in program history, the HU women’s soccer team (4-4-1) handed Bluffton University an 8-0 loss Friday afternoon. It was Huntington’s largest margin of victory since September of 2014 when they topped Holy Cross 9-0.

It was a goal-fest for the visitors with several Foresters having career nights. Senior Brandi Spear posted her first collegiate hat trick in the first half and then added one more to start the second. Today’s four goals more than matches her season total as she now boasts seven goals in her final campaign, 11 for her career.

Matéa Knispel also found back netting three times in the opening 45 minutes for her second hat trick in less than two weeks. Tessy Geiss got in on the action too by scoring just before halftime to give her team a 7-0 lead at the halfway point before Spear rounded out the scoring less than two minutes into the second period to make for the 8-0 final.

Geiss also assisted Spear’s third goal while Nicole Pennington handed out two. Four of HU’s other five goals were assisted with Millie Adams, Bailey O’Dell, Madison Kidder and Jessica Chojnacki each picking up a dime.

Junior Autumn Demott claimed the clean sheet in the net. She snagged the Beavers’ lone shot on goal to finish with a save in her 90 minutes of play.

HU posted 34 shots, 20 on frame, to Bluffton’s three.

“Tonight was certainly a great way to wrap up the non-conference portion of our schedule,” said Coach Burge. “We were really focused on precision today so it was good to see us finish with confidence.

“We look forward to the coming week as we prepare to kick-off conference play on Saturday.”

Huntington’s league-opener is at Goshen under the lights at 7:00 p.m.

The Huntington women’s tennis team had double duty Saturday with a trip to Bethel where they picked up a 9-0 win over the Pilots before heading back to Klopfenstein Courts to host IU Kokomo and tally another sweep, their seventh of the year. With these wins, HU improves to 9-2 overall.

It was smooth sailing for the Foresters all day as all singles matches were straight set wins while five games was the most any opponent accumulated in doubles play against HU.

With two league matches remaining, Coach Ferguson’s crew is sitting in fourth in the standings with a 5-2 Crossroads League record – just two matches behind top-seeded Indiana Wesleyan. Huntington is back in action to take on Spring Arbor at home on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. The Cougars and Foresters currently carry the same league record.

It was another case where the Forester volleyball team (9-10, 4-5) came close to knocking off a ranked opponent but couldn’t quite close the deal. This time HU took #25 Marian University to five sets before suffering a 3-2 loss, 25-21, 20-25, 19-25, 25-16, 15-6, Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena.

For Coach Shondell’s crew, today’s match was the sixth against a nationally ranked team and the fourth time they’ve taken their ranked opponent to a fifth set rubber match.

As has been the case all season, the Foresters weren’t playing with a full roster but Jenna Tacosik was a welcomed addition to the court as she played her first full match as a Forester. The freshman rookie finished with a game-high 21 assists. Brianna Levings tallied 20 assists as the twosome split setting responsibilities.

“I thought both setters did a great job of mixing up our offense and staying aggressive,” said Coach Shondell. “We were really hard to stop for a long stretch today.”

Breanna Metz, another freshman who has had limited action this season, posted some big numbers offensively with a game-best 16 kills. Brandy Michie added ten kills and a .269 hitting percentage while Danielle Gurwell chipped in nine kills.

“Brea was terrific today,” noted Shondell. “She has been patient coming off an early injury and really found her groove today.”

The Foresters finished with 49 kills to Marians’ 46 but the visitors out-blocked HU 10-4 and committed six service errors to their hosts’ nine.

Backcourt defense was a shared effort with Ariene Butler and Mikayla Carpenter posting 14 digs each while Kate Cobb and Levings added 12 and ten respectively.

While Coach Shondell would love to be on the other side of these close matches, he remains optimistic. “Between how we’ve been competing lately and the amount of players stepping into big roles, this group is getting really fun to watch.

“You want to win every match you play, and being in this position and falling short has become a theme for us, but I truly like where we’re at.”

HU heads to Saint Francis on Wednesday for a 7:00 p.m. clash with the Cougars.
