VOLLEYBALL

September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester volleyball team got back in the win column twice over the weekend to move up into a tie for second in the league standings. HU is currently 2-1 in conference action, 8-6 overall.

On Friday night, Huntington enjoyed a 3-1 win (25-19, 25-23, 18-25, 25-22) over Saint Francis at Platt Arena.

A trio of Foresters carried HU offensively with Josie Beaver topping the list. The senior middle finished with 13 kills while Brandy Michie and Lauren Cresse added ten and nine kills respectively.

The Cougars out-blocked their hosts 12-8 but serving was the difference maker. HU finished with six service aces, four by Mikayla Carpenter, while committing just four serving errors to USF’s 12. The Foresters also did not let a ball drop in serve receive.

Defensively, Haley Longley topped Huntington with three blocks while Kate Cobb registered a game-high 22 digs.

The Foresters stayed in the friendly confines of Platt Arena on Saturday to blank the Cougars of Spring Arbor University 3-0 (25-22, 25-19, 25-19). The sweep is Huntington’s fourth of the year.

Huntington logged 45 kills and an impressive .330 hitting percentage as a team with Beaver and Danielle Gurwell each posting 12 kills while Breanna Metz stepped back into the line-up to add nine kills.

Cresse again paced her team at the net defensively with 2.5 blocks while Cobb anchored the backline with a game-best ten digs.

Breanna Levings and Emily Hubby split setting responsibilities all weekend to finish within one set of each other at 39 and 38 respectively.

The Foresters host #20 Indiana Wesleyan on Wednesday at Platt Arena at 7:00 p.m.

VOLLEYBALL

September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Huntington University senior Kate Cobb reached a significant milestone in her HU career this past week by becoming just the second Forester in program history to tally over 2,000 career digs.

“From her first day on campus, Kate has run on her own motor,” said Coach Shondell. “Her attitude, effort and love for this game make her one of the most special players I have ever coached.”

The 5-5 defensive specialist has 2,059 digs to date. The Elkhart native officially went over the 2K mark against Friends University last Saturday. She currently sits second in the Huntington record books for digs in a career behind 2008 graduate Stephanie Stearns.

So far this season Cobb has accumulated 266 digs to rank 11th in the NAIA in total digs. She averages 5.12 digs per set which lands her 34th in the NAIA and 3rd in the Crossroads League. Cobb has earned three All-Conference badges during her time in green and white which includes being named First Team the last two years.

“For four years she has been arguably the best libero in our conference, because she’s worked for it,” said Shondell. “Her ‘no days off’ mentality has helped build the culture we have here at HU and means she more than deserves this milestone.”

MEN’S TENNIS

September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S TENNIS Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington men’s tennis team picked up a pair of wins over the weekend at Klopfenstein Courts to improve to 4-2 on the season.

The Foresters took a break from league play Friday afternoon to edge past a talented Judson University squad 5-4.

After earning just one point in doubles play, HU was forced to play catch up in singles action and didn’t disappoint as the top three spots breezed to two-set wins while Brody Worl gutted out a W at No. 6 singles to slip past the Eagles.

“Our guys are playing more patiently at singles and being aggressive on the short balls,” said Coach Eckert. “Our goal this year is to be more of an attacking team in singles and doubles than we were last year.”

On Saturday, Huntington was back in action to host Mount Vernon Nazarene University, a program that launched a new era of tennis this fall having last competed in the late 1980s. It was a 9-0 sweep favoring the hosts for the quick win. HU is now 3-1 in conference play.

The Foresters are back in action on Tuesday with a road trip to Taylor to take on the Trojans at 3:00 p.m.

MEN’S SOCCER

September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Freshman Noah Fleming’s first collegiate goal proved to be the game-winner Friday afternoon in the Forester men’s soccer team’s 2-1 win over Lawrence Tech.

It was HU’s only shot of the second half as the majority of the final 45 minutes was played in the center of the park with the exception coming in the 64th minute when Guilherme Lins Souza unlocked LTU’s defense by slotting Fleming on a breakaway.

Huntington finished with ten shots to the Blue Devils’ eight. Lawrence Tech struck first 20 minutes in but it was all HU after that as Luke Unger chipped one in on an assist by Travis Hurtis with 15 minutes to go in the first half for the 1-1 draw before Fleming dribbled the LTU keeper for the game-winner in the second period.

Senior Troy Hester went the distance in goal for the win. He finished with three saves, all in the second half.

“The boys were up for the challenge today,” said Coach Lawson. “Lawrence Tech is a very talented and hard working side that is well drilled in their attack. I’m proud of our boys – it was a fantastic team effort and we had great team spirit.”

With this win, Lawson’s crew improves to 2-1-2. HU hosts Manchester University on Wednesday in a non-conference clash slated for 4:00 p.m.
