Athletics

* Langness And Ryan NSCA All-America Honor

University of Evansville student-athletes Danielle Langness and Colt Ryan have been named to NCSA Athletic Recruiting’s 2013 Athleader All-American Team. The Athleader All-American Team was chosen based upon nominations received from coaches, Sports Information Directors and Athletic Directors across the nation.

Only eight athletes were selected for the 2012-2013 inaugural year of this award. To be chosen for the All-American Team, athletes have to embody the characteristics of an Athleader; which is defined by not only exceling on the field, but by putting their team first, valuing their education and having a thirst for learning. The “all-in” attitude of these players is made apparent through their all-out work ethic, as well as the legacy leave on the field, campus, and community. These athletes use these factors to lead by example and give back to empower others on their campus and in their community.

“Danielle is a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee member and she inspires others to give more of themselves,” UE Senior Associate Athletic Director Sarah Solinsky said.  “Colt is also a SAAC Representative who makes time for others, often receiving requests to participate in volunteer activities and he happily gave of his time.”

Langness, a member of the UE women’s soccer team has been the definition of an Athleader during her time at the University of Evansville.  As a Purple Ace, Langness was a starter for the women’s soccer team and was named to the Missouri Valley Conference Honor Roll all four years.

Over the past year she contributed 515 hours of community service to Evansville’s Athletic Department’s 4,042 hours. Organizations she helped include United Way, Salvation Army, Make-A-Wish, and Canine Rescue among more. This past fall, Langness received the Fall, 2012, Missouri Valley Conference Service and Leadership Award.

Colt Ryan has also exhibited what it means to be an Athleader during his time at the University of Evansville.  Over the last four seasons, Ryan was a star on the men’s basketball team and broke the all-time scoring mark at UE with 2,279 points. In 2013 Ryan received the Ralph Coleman Scholar-Athlete Award for top male senior student-athlete at UE.

During his career he was named the Missouri Valley Conference MVC Scholar Athlete of the Year twice, and was a 2-time MVC First Team All-Conference selection. Colt was also named to the MVC Honor Roll for 3 years. During his senior year Colt volunteered for multiple organizations in Indiana, including Race for the Cure, Special Olympics, the American Red Cross, YMCA and more.

When nominating Langness for this award, Senior Associate Athletics Director, Sarah Solinsky said,

* UE Women's Soccer Releases 2013 Schedule

University of Evansville women’s soccer head coach Krista McKendree unveiled the Purple Aces 2013 schedule Tuesday afternoon, a slate that will consist of 18 contests, including 10 home matches.

Evansville will play an exhibition contest Wednesday, Aug. 14 at Austin Peay, before opening its regular-season schedule by hosting Morehead State on Aug. 16.

“We are looking forward to getting things started in August,” McKendree said.  “We have a lot of momentum and had a very positive spring season.  Our returning group is more ready than ever to come back and work toward competing for another championship.  The goal is to be playing our best soccer when we reach our conference game and I believe our non-conference schedule will prepare us for that.”

In non-conference play, the Aces will host Murray State (Aug. 23), UT Martin (Aug. 30), IUPUI (Sept. 6), Belmont (Sept. 13), Valparaiso (Sept. 15) and Western Kentucky (Oct. 27) and travel to Tennessee Tech (Aug. 25), Xavier (Sept. 4), St. Louis (Sept. 8), Eastern Kentucky (Sept. 20) and Bowling Green (Sept. 22).

For its contest against IUPUI on Sept. 6, UE will sport orange uniforms as part of Multiple Sclerosis Night. 

Evansville will begin its defense of its 2012 Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship when it hosts Drake for its conference opener Sunday, Sept. 29.  The Aces will also host conference foes Missouri State (Oct. 12) and Loyola (Oct. 31) and will have road contests against MVC opponents Northern Iowa (Oct. 6), Indiana State (Oct. 17) and Illinois State (Oct. 20).

The first round of the MVC Tournament will be conducted at campus sites on Nov. 3, before UE plays host to the second and third rounds at Arad McCutchan Stadium Nov. 8-10.

“There should be some very entertaining matches for the fans this season culminating with a great weekend of tournament play and the crowning of the MVC Tournament champion,” McKendree said.
