* Yasser Alhenawi

Assistant Professor of Finance Yasser Alhenawi has had his fourth publication this year. His manuscript titled "Momentum Effect in U.S. Stocks: An Exponential Effect" has been accepted for publication in The Empirical Economics Letters. In this paper, Dr. Alhenawi shows evidence that returns increase exponentially, not linearly, with momentum. He concludes that momentum carries additional pricing information i.e. stocks do not only tend to “move in the same direction,” they also make “additional gain” – an indication of strong herd behavior.

* Men's Golf Signs A Pair For Next Season

Purple Aces head golf coach Jim Hamilton has announced the signing of two players to National Letters of Intent to begin play at the University of Evansville next season.

The Aces officially welcome Jon Pick and Brett Wolvert to the men’s golf team beginning next season.

“I am thrilled to add both of these players to our team,” Hamilton said.  “They bring some national experience through junior events and should make an immediate impact on the team and help us achieve our goal of winning the conference championship.  I am really excited to coach both of them.”

Pick becomes the third Canadian native to join the Aces as Quinn Vilneff and Rick Voyvodic came to Evansville from Ontario.  Pick is a native of Ottawa, Ontario where he attended West Carleton Secondary School and was the MVC of his golf team in each of the last three seasons.

He posted a top 10 finish in the Canadian Mizuno National Championship and played in the 2012 United States Juniors after qualifying for it

Wolvert comes to Evansville from Wilsonville, Ore. where he attended Wilsonville High School.  One of his top highlights of his senior season was winning a tournament in Northwest Oregon Conference play at Heron Lakes Golf Course in Portland.  He posted a 2-under 70 to lead his team to a 17-stroke victory.

Earlier this year, he was named a First Team All-League golfer by the Northwestern Oregon Conference.  His average is currently a 73 while his top performance was a 69 in a weekly high school tournament at “Resort At The Mountain”.  Wolvert’s squad sits in second place at this time and is qualified for the state tournament.

* Men's Soccer Camps Approaching Quick

Men’s soccer camp is right around the corner as the Purple Aces program will host six camps over the next two months for players in several age groups.

Full information is available by visiting acessoccercamp.com.  Notes on each camp are also available below.  All campers receive an Aces Soccer Camp t-shirt and a certificate of achievement.  Full-day camps include a hot lunch and drink.  For more information, contact the Evansville Soccer Office at 812-488-2294.

The Advanced Day Camps mark the first of the schedule and will take place from June 3-7.  Going from 8 a.m. until noon each day, the camp is the most intensive one offered and is geared to serious travel or select players.  It is open to boys from U8 to U13.

Beginning on June 10 and running through the 14th, the Day Camps are open to boys and girls age K-6.  Full and half day options are available as the full goes from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. while the half day goes from 9 a.m. until noon.  Campers are grouped by age and ability and will work in skill training and development while participating in scrimmage matches later in the day.  Indoor space is available should severe weather limit play outdoors.

On June 29 and 30, UE will host boys age 11 through 14 for the Middle School Elite Camp and the Middle School Goalkeeper Academy.  The elite camp provides a highly competitive atmosphere for serious soccer players.  A focus is placed on technical and functional position training using small group and team tactics.

There will be a team tournament for each age group with evening matches at Arad McCutchan Stadium, home of the Purple Aces.  Also included in the camp is a college recruiting seminar for those interested in playing at the collegiate level.  Training sessions in the camp help the athlete prepare for high school and college careers.

The Goalkeeper Academy is regarded as one of the best in the country.  Methodology used as the camp has been shared with goalkeepers who have gone on to play for the United States National Teams, Major League Soccer, in the Olympic Development Program (ODP) and the highest collegiate levels.

College ID Camp and Goalkeeper Academy mark the final camps of the season and take place on July 20 and 21 for boys age 15-18.  The camp is designed for serious soccer players who are looking at taking their high school careers to the next level in college.  Small group training and team tactics help players to improve in those areas while a tournament will take place at McCutchan Stadium in the evening for each age group.

Goalkeepers looking at improving their skills in that age group are encouraged to take part in the Goalkeeper Academy where the drills used in that camp have been used to teach those who play at the highest levels in college, in the pros and for the U.S. National Team.
