VOLLEYBALL

October 12, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester volleyball team needed a set to get warmed up before taking it to Goshen College (10-12, 3-7) Wednesday night for a 3-1 win, 22-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-14. The W completes the regular season sweep over the Maple Leafs as HU opened up league play with a 3-1 decision over GC back on August 30.

Since taking over the reins in 2015, Coach Shondell has enjoyed a 4-2 record against Goshen.

The Maple Leafs were the aggressors in the first set before Huntington came alive and took over the match, giving up the lead just one time in the final three sets.

“Goshen is a much better team than their record suggests and they came after us early,” said Coach Shondell. “We really picked up our offensive aggressiveness in the latter three sets and that’s what helped us set the tone for the remainder of the match.

“Our middles were workhorses and their numbers show it. When we can have them as involved as they were tonight, we’re awfully hard to beat.”

Josie Beaver was one of those middles. The 5-10 senior posted 11 kills and a .429 hitting percentage to go along with three blocks. HU’s other middle Lauren Cresse tallied similar numbers with nine kills and three blocks while Tailor Schultheis shared game-high kill honors with Beaver by registering 11. She also finished with two blocks as the Foresters out-blocked their hosts 12-8.

Setting was a joint responsibility with Emily Hubby and Breanna Levings collecting 21 and 17 assists respectively. Backcourt defense was also a shared duty with Kate Cobb claiming 18 digs, Mikayla Carpenter adding 16 and Ariene Butler finishing with 11.

The Foresters are now 11-13 overall, 6-7 in league play which lands them in the middle of the pack in the conference standings with five regular season CL games to go. Next up for HU is the Liz Lykowski Memorial Invitational hosted by Indiana Tech on Friday and Saturday.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

October 12, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Up against one of the nation’s best, the HU women’s soccer team held their own before dropping a 2-0 decision to #2 Spring Arbor University Wednesday afternoon to drop to 6-6-1 overall, 2-2 in league play.

The Cougars (12-1, 4-0) entered the contest averaging nearly four goals per contest behind the league’s leading scorer in Bethany Balcer but a feisty Forester squad made sure SAU’s typical outing didn’t hold true at King Stadium. After giving up an early goal and another just before halftime, HU held their visitors scoreless over the final 45 minutes to make for the 2-0 final.

It’s just the fifth time this year that last year’s national runners-up were held to just two goals.

The Cougars posted 20 shots, 13 on frame, to Huntington’s four. Spring Arbor also won the corner kick battle 11-0.

Paige Coolman took the loss in goal. The senior keeper tallied ten saves.

“Losing is never easy, but a loss against a national powerhouse on an evening where we played solid possession soccer, even under wet conditions, gives reason to be proud,” said Coach Burge. “But more than that these ladies played with an emphasis on teamwork and communication, putting together multiple scoring opportunities.

“Though we wanted a win, we walked off the field heads held high and ready for Saturday.”

Coach Burge’s crew heads to Mount Vernon on Saturday for a 3:00 p.m. matchup with the Cougars.

WOMEN’S TENNIS

October 12, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S TENNIS Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Crossroads League announced its 2017 women’s tennis All-Conference Team and among the list of honorees were senior Constanze Golz and sophomore Meg Dolde.

As HU’s No. 1 player, Golz earned her fourth All-Conference badge. She posted a 5-4 record in singles action in Crossroads League play and finished the fall season with an overall singles record of 13-6.

Dolde claimed Huntington’s No. 2 spot in singles play where she racked up seven wins against just two losses against her league peers. She boasted an overall singles record of 15-4 this fall.

The German duo teamed up to represent the Foresters at #1 doubles and accumulated a 7-2 record in league play and an overall record of 14-6. Together they paced their team to a third place finish in the CL regular season standings and a trip to the finals of the league tournament.

After handing 6th-seeded Grace a 7-2 loss in the quarterfinals, the Foresters enjoyed a 5-3 upset over 2nd-seeded Marian, HU’s first win over the Knights since 2008, in the semis to earn a spot in the CL championship where top-seeded IWU claimed the conference title.

Huntington finished the fall with an overall record of 14-3 and CL record of 7-2.

MEN’S SOCCER

October 12, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington men’s soccer team suffered its first league loss, a 2-0 decision, Wednesday night to the top team in the Crossroads League in Spring Arbor University. With this loss, HU drops to 5-3-4 overall, 1-1-2 in conference action, while SAU improves to 11-2 overall, 4-0 in league play.

The Cougars, currently 19th in the country, are getting the job done at both ends of the field and tonight was business as usual for the hosts. They entered the contest ranked 11th in the NAIA in total shutouts with six while also boasting one of the nation’s top scorers in Morris Kamara, sitting 8th nationally in total goals with 13.

While Huntington didn’t allow Kamara to find back netting, Alex Sokalski opened up scoring for SAU with a PK just before halftime and then 15 minutes into the second period, Baba Valdmanis ripped a shot from outside the 18 to account for the final score of the night.

Even though Spring Arbor logged nearly twice as many shots as HU, a 13-7 difference, shots on frame were similar with the Cougars holding a slight 7-6 advantage. Corner kicks favored the hosts as well 5-3.

It wasn’t the result Coach Lawson and crew were hoping for but the skipper remains optimistic about his team’s play. “I can’t help but get excited about this team – our fight and desire allowed us to take away many positives from tonight’s match.

“Spring Arbor is a solid side and makes few mistakes while punishing their opponents who do,” said Lawson. “A couple of lapses did us in tonight but we will be better on Saturday!”

Troy Hester took the loss in frame for the Foresters. He finished with five saves.

Huntington returns to the friendly confines of King Stadium on Saturday to host Mount Vernon at 2:00 p.m.

MEN’S TENNIS

October 12, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S TENNIS Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

For the second straight year, the Crossroads League has tabbed junior Ignacio Poncio and sophomore Rodrigo Manzo as All-Conference honorees.

For Poncio, it marks his third All-Conference award in as many years. Playing at HU’s No. 1 spot in both singles and doubles, the Argentina native logged a 7-2 record in singles action while posting six wins against three losses in doubles play to guide the Foresters to a third place finish in the conference standings. His overall record this fall was 12-3 in singles and 9-5 in doubles.

As Huntington’s No. 2 player, Manzo was unblemished at 8-0 in singles play against his league foes while racking up a 7-1 record at the #2 spot in doubles action. The San Luis Potosi, Mexico, native finished the fall with an overall 13-2 singles record and an 8-6 doubles record.

Huntington wrapped up the fall season with an overall record of 9-4 and a conference record of 7-2.

Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Final Exam, Etc.

October 11, 2017 Academic Comments Off on Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Final Exam, Etc. Posted By: Cathy Trout

Fall Break is scheduled for October 16 and 17, Thanksgiving Break is November 22, 23 and 24, and final exams are the week of December 11. Students should not plan to leave campus early for travel purposes. Our policy states that unless it is a family emergency, students are expected to attend classes the week prior to the break and faculty are required to meet all of their regularly scheduled classes. There are no “excused” absences (illness, funerals, athletic contests, and other necessary absences are included in the total number of absences counted). As a reminder, here is the class attendance policy, and below that, a link to the final exam schedule.

CLASS ATTENDANCE REMINDER: Students are expected to be punctual and regular in class attendance and to accept responsibility for all assigned work. Any student who has been absent for as many as one-third of the total class sessions for a course will have failed and will be suspended from the course. Within this framework, each instructor may set his/her own class attendance policy, and will inform students of this policy at the beginning of the term. Class sessions missed because of illness or late registration will be counted as absences. There are no “excused” absences (illness, funerals, athletic contests, and other necessary absences are included in the total number of absences counted). In case of extenuating circumstances, a suspended student may petition the Academic Concerns Committee to be readmitted to the class. At the discretion of the faculty member, missed work may be “made up.”

FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE: may be found at https://www.huntington.edu/uploads/page/Final_Exam_Schedule.pdf

Travel plans are not a basis for petitioning for a schedule change. Faculty are under no obligation to honor requests from students to accommodate travel plans.
