After an impressive 3-1 win over Mount Vernon on Friday, the Forester volleyball team came up short but turned in a quality performance against #25 Marian University Saturday afternoon in a 3-0 decision (-22, -20, -25) that favored the Knights at the MU Physical Education Center.

With this loss, HU drops to 13-19 overall, 7-10 in league play. With just Bethel left on their regular season schedule, Coach Shondell’s crew is sitting sixth in the CL standings.

Today’s win for the Knights (26-4, 16-2), the league’s regular season champs, marks their second victory over Huntington this season with the first dating back to September 23 when the Foresters took them to five sets, Marian’s only five-set win of the year.

Danielle Gurwell and Breanna Metz shared team-high kill honors with eight each. Josie Beaver added six kills to go along two solo blocks.

Jenna Tacosik ran HU’s offense to finish with a match-best 27 assists. Kate Cobb took charge of the backline with a match-high 21 digs. Ariene Butler posted 15 digs while Emily Hubby and Mikayla Carpenter tallied 11 and ten respectively.

The Foresters are back on the road on Wednesday to face the Lady Pilots at 7:00 p.m.

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.

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.

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).

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 Huntington volleyball team got off to a great start against #RV Indiana Wesleyan University (22-8, 15-3) Wednesday night before suffering a 3-1 loss, 20-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-18, to the Wildcats at Luckey Arena. The loss is HU’s second to IWU this year as they drop to 12-18 overall, 6-9 in league play.

The first set featured ten ties but the Foresters never trailed for the convincing five-point win. While the Wildcats won the next three, HU kept it close the rest of the way as the match featured 17 more ties and five lead changes.

“We came out great,” said Coach Shondell. “Truthfully, we were the better team at the start and end of each set. We just let our foot off the gas a few too many times.”

Lauren Cresse and Danielle Gurwell carried the Foresters offensively with 11 and ten kills respectively. Jenna Tacosik dished out a game-high 37 assists to go along with three kills, ten digs and her team’s only ace.

Kate Cobb tallied a game-best 26 digs while Emily Hubby registered 15 and Ariene Butler posted 14. At the net defensively, Cresse and Josie Beaver shared game-high blocking honors with 2.5 each. As a team, the Foresters out-blocked their hosts 10-6.

“Lauren was tremendous tonight,” said Shondell. “To have a match like that on a stage like that just shows you who she is and where she’s going.

With three regular season matches remaining, Shondell is pleased with where his team is headed. “The way we are starting to play is more than encouraging going into the home stretch of the season.”

Huntington will look to snap their four-game skid on Friday’s senior night at Platt Arena against Mount Vernon at 7:00 p.m.
