November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s basketball team picked up its second win in less than 24 hours to wrap up the Crossroads League/WHAC Classic with a 54-43 decision over Aquinas College Saturday afternoon. With this W, the Foresters improve to 2-1 and finish 2-0 against their WHAC opponents.

Saint Francis was the other Crossroads League team participating in the classic and they too tallied wins over Aquinas and Cornerstone for a 4-0 sweep over the WHAC in the annual league vs. league challenge.

Just like against Cornerstone last night, defense was the Foresters’ bread and butter. On this given day, HU limited the Saints to just 11 field goals on 22.0 percent shooting. The rest of Aquinas’ points came by way of the free throw line where they went 18-for-23.

Huntington’s defense created instant offense for the hosts as they converted 18 Aquinas miscues into 17 points. Half of AC’s turnovers were HU steals with Maddie Richer, Hailey Krewald and Sam Hammel each swiping a pair.

While offense didn’t necessarily come easy for either team, the Foresters got the job done at the other end of the hardwood to enjoy a lead for all but two minutes of the 40-minute contest. As a team, Culler’s crew finished 22-for-60 for 36.7 percent while going 5-for-5 from the charity stripe.

Scoring was by committee with Sarah Fryman and Casey Morton leading the way with 11 and ten points respectively. Hammel added eight points and a game-best five assists. Richer tossed in eight points and dished out three assists.

The Foresters’ lead never crept into double digits through the first half but Saylor’s bucket in the paint two minutes into the third finally brook that barrier for a 31-21 tilt. The Saints would whittle it down to five three times but would get no closer as Richer, Morton and Krewald each nailed a triple at key moments in the final 13 minutes to hold their visitors at bay.

It was an evenly matched battle of the boards with HU owning a slim 41-40 advantage. Aquinas tracked down 13 offensive boards for ten second chance points to Huntington’s 11 for eight points. Brooke Saylor led the charge for HU with 12 caroms while Krewald corralled ten.

Momo Neal was the Saints’ only double-digit scorer with 14 points. Michaela Faber added eight points to go along with a team-best seven rebounds.

The Foresters have held the upper hand against Aquinas under Coach Culler’s tutelage – tallying 12 wins against six losses.

HU hits the road for the first time this season on Wednesday to take on Holy Cross College at 5:30 p.m.


November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

A banged up Forester volleyball team headed into the Crossroads League Tournament as the 6th-seed and outlasted 3rd-seeded Grace in set one before dropping the next three to bring a close to their season with a 3-1 loss to the Lancers, 25-27, 25-18, 25-20, 25-15.

The loss is Huntington’s third to GC this season but as has been the case all season, Shondell’s crew didn’t go down without a fight.

“You had two teams that had no intentions of ending their season tonight,” said Shondell. “All you saw was a battle. We were down often in this match but never gave in. I am so incredibly proud of that.”

Freshman Brandy Michie had one of the best outings of her young career by leading the Foresters offensively with a career-tying 12 kills and .400 hitting percentage. Senior Josie Beaver added ten kills in the middle while Danielle Gurwell and Breanna Metz tallied eight and seven kills respectively. Janna Tacosik organized the offense with 38 assists.

Senior Mikayla Carpenter finished her Forester career by saving the best for last with a career-high 21 digs. Ariene Butler tallied eight digs while Emily Hubby registered seven.

“Brandy chose a pretty good time to have the match of her career,” said Shondell. “Grace is still scrambling to find ways to stop her.”

Shondell was also pleased with how his team rallied despite injury. “Given the recent injuries to Tailor and Kate, I was really pleased with Kate’s grit and Brea’s ability to step in there and go after it.”

HU wraps up the year with a record of 13-21 and HU’s skipper was quick to praise his seniors as he already looks forward to 2018-19.

“You can’t say a word about tonight’s effort without making it abundantly clear that the five seniors who played their final match tonight are worthy of every ounce of praise they receive and that they will undoubtedly serve as the foundation for what we are building her at Huntington.

“This was far from how we drew this match or this season up, but the picture we’ve got now looks awfully good for the future.”


November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on CROSS COUNTRY Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester cross country team wrapped up its season at the Crossroads League Championships hosted by Marian University Saturday afternoon at Northview Church in Carmel, Ind. The HU men took 7th while the women finished 10th.

As has been the case most of the season, Adrien Gentie paced the Huntington men with his 30th place finish in 27:41.6 for an average mile time of 5:35. Three Foresters finished within the next 20 seconds. Kevin Moser was one spot back at 31st in 27:44.5. Nick Childs was on his heels to claim 32nd in 27:46.7 while Elijah Chesterman took 39th by clocking in at 27:57.2.

Codi Wiersema rounded out HU’s scoring by turning in a season-best time of 28:36.4 for 51st place. Other runners for the Foresters included Kody Ahrens (58th, 29:01.5) and Zach McIntyre (63rd, 29:27.9).

Coach Miller’s crew finished tied for sixth with 183 points with the tiebreaker favoring the Lancers based on their 5th runner finishing ahead of HU’s 5th runner.

For the fifth time in six years, Indiana Wesleyan took home the title with 32 points followed by Taylor (37), Marian (81), Goshen (123), Mount Vernon (153), Grace (183), HU (183), Spring Arbor (206), Bethel (218) and Saint Francis (304).

Aspen Dirr led the Forester women by running to a 24th place finish out of 135 runners in 20:01.9 (6:28 pace). Bianca Tisdale came in next for HU by clocking in at 21:30.8 for 57th place. Only one spot separated Huntington’s final three runners with Rachael Smelser claiming 65th in 22:53.3, MacKenzie Bobeck finishing 67th in 23:48.9 and Erin Manchess taking 68th in 24:30.3.

Taylor ran away with the women’s title with 21 points followed by Indiana Wesleyan (65), Marian (86), Mount Vernon (135), Spring Arbor (136), Goshen (181), Saint Francis (198), Bethel (201), Grace (236) and HU (281).
