* New Procedure for Marketing Requests - Including AceNotes!

As we begin the new year, many of you are ready to submit requests for AceNotes, room reservations for non-class related activities, print pieces, videos, news releases, etc. Whatever you need from any area of marketing, it can now be requested through one form. Just go here::

Next - click on the icon for the type of request you would like to make and fill out the form that pops up. Once you click "submit," the form will be sent to the appropriate people.

This form replaces Publication's previous job request form and allows all areas of marketing to assist you in a systematic way. If there is a cost to your project, you must still submit a paper copy of a check requisition or copy services request as in the past. (There are a few exceptions for departments that have been switched to electronic methods of making those submissions.)

If you are unsure which category to choose for your project or have any other questions, please contact one of the members of the marketing team to assist.

* Katterhenry Tops Women's Golf In Opening Day

Freshman Kayla Katterhenry is tied for fifth place following the opening day of the Redbird Invitational as the Purple Aces women’s golf team is tied for 8th place entering Monday’s final round.

Katterhenry opened up play with a 70 before notching a 73 in the second round on Sunday.  She is just three strokes off of the lead with 18 more holes set to take palce.  Seven shots behind her was sophomore Paige Crafton, who is tied for 17th with a 150 after shooting identical 75’s.

Dana Hayden carded scores of 82 and 78 en route to a 160 while Cathy Doyle tallied a 166.  Hayden is tied for 58th while Doyle is in 76th.  Maggie Camp finished the day with a 170 in her first collegiate action.

Toledo holds a 3-stroke lead on the team side with a 592.  Despite their top two players tied for eighth, all five of the Rockets women are in the top 27 in what has been a consistent effort.  Another Mid-American Conference school, Bowling Green, is in second with a 595.

Bradley and Ball State are tied for fourth place with scores of 597 while Illinois State rounds out the top five with a 602.   Evansville is tied with South Dakota State for eighth place with a 619, seven shots behind Ohio U.

* Aces Volleyball Wraps Up Miami Invitational

Junior Ashley Ring led the way for the Purple Aces once again, notching 19 kills, but three Northern Kentucky players posted double figure kills as the Norse finished with a 3-1 victory over volleyball on Saturday morning in the Miami Invitational.

Ring finished the morning with 19 kills and 13 digs while Rachel TenHoor tallied 11 kills while hitting .391 in the match for UE (2-4).  The Norse was led by Jayden Julian’s 18-kill effort while Jenna Ruble had 15.

NKU was strong from the outset, jumping out to a 6-1 lead as Julian had three early kills.  The offense began to find its groove for UE as Ring rang up three early kills to get the Aces within a point at 11-10.  Evansville hung tough over the remainder of the set and they eventually battled back to tie the score up at 23-23 on an NKU error.  The Norse rebounded to post the final two points to escape with a 25-23 win.

Despite falling in the opening frame, Evansville used the momentum it gained from a late run to begin the second set on an 8-2 stretch.  The rally was led by sophomore Emma Roberson, who notched back-to-back-to-back kills.  Northern Kentucky made its move, going on an 8-2 run of its own to tie it up at 10-all.

With the score tied at 13, two Ring kills gave the Aces the lead for good as they extended the advantage to take a 25-20 victory.  Ashley Ring was pivotal in the late run, registering three of UE’s final four points of the set.

Early runs were pivotal in the first two sets and NKU continued that in the third, jumping out to a 3-1 edge.  Evansville got within a point at 6-5 before the Norse went on a 7-1 run as Julian led the way for the offense as they took a 13-6 advantage.  The lead got as high as nine points (21-12) before NKU finished with a 25-17 win.

The fourth game saw a 3-3 tie ensue before Northern Kentucky slowly took control.  Their advantage reached nine points at 20-11 before the Aces closed late before falling by a 25-17 score.

Evansville hit much better in Saturday’s match, finishing at .226, but the Norse finished the game hitting .267.  Jenn Murphy tallied 44 assists for UE while Katie Klages led everyone with 24 digs.

A 7-match road trip to begin the season will finish on Tuesday when the Aces face Murray State.  Next weekend, UE will finally be in front of its home fans at the Carson Center as SIU Edwardsville, Memphis and Valparaiso come to town.

* Jenkins And Genet Lead Aces Cross Country

Senior Kelby Jenkins and Josh Genet were the top runners for their respective squads as the University of Evansville cross country squad raced in the Walt Crawford Open, which was hosted by Eastern Illinois on Friday afternoon.

Jenkins came in second place in the 5K women’s event, falling just short of Sadie Darnell (SIU) by two seconds.  Genet took ninth place on the men’s side in a race that featured 123 runners.  On the women’s side, 138 runners participated in the event.  Each team finished in fourth place as the men earned their rank out of 12 squads while the women’s race featured 13 teams.

“I was pleased with both teams today.  The times for everyone were a little slower than they have been in the past as the heat had an impact once again,” Aces head coach Don Walters explained.  “Kelby ran in the top pack in her race, but she just fell too far behind in the end.  She is disappointed in the result, but she knows what she has to do in future races to win.”

“Both teams took fourth place and at the end of the day, that is a good run for us,” Walters said.  “We will work hard at practice next week and be ready to roll in Alabama next weekend.”

The men got the action started at 4:45 p.m. with Genet leading the way for Evansville with a 26:05.43 to finish in ninth place.  Jon Ashby was the next UE runner to cross the stripe as his time of 26:50.31 was good for 21st overall.  Freshman Ben Woolems took 43rd while posting a 27:43.37 in his first 8K collegiate race and was followed by Andrew Barrett and Ross Frondorf.  That duo finished in 53rd and 54th with times of 28:07.89 and 28:09.89, respectively.

Mike Hesslau of Eastern Illinois was the top finisher, taking the win by five seconds over teammate Pablo Ramirez.  Hesslau’s winning time was 25:35.49.  The Panthers posted four of the top seven finishers en route to the team victory.  Their total of 27 points bested SIU Edwardsville’s final of 59.  The Illinois Track Club was third with a 94 and Evansville followed with a 130.

In the 5K, Jenkins took second place with a time of 17:39.95.  That time continued to cement her place in the Aces record books.  Not only was it the second-best time of her career (17:38 was her PR), but it was the fourth-best time in school history in the women’s 5K.  Andrea Sonnenschein holds the record-low time of 17:30 while her and Jenkins are tied for second with a 17:38.

Continuing her success as one of the Aces top runners was Maria Lynn, who took 23rd after running a 19:16.77.  It was the best time of her career, topping her previous mark of 19:19, which was set at the MVC Championship last season.  Kirsten Perrey ran the best time of her career as her time of 19:32.13 gave her 30th place.  She smashed her old PR of 19:51 from her freshman season.

Nicole Kreuzman finished just behind her in 31st with a 19:32.80 while Laurel Wolfe came in 35th, running a 19:39.94.  She was followed by Jacqueline Carlson (20:00.27) and Alyssa Moran (20:10.08).

Darnell took top honors for the women as her time of 17:37.52 was tops.  She led a group of SIU runners, who racked up six out of the top eight spots to take the team win, finishing with 22 points.  Eastern Illinois took second with 57 while Murray State came in third with a 92 and Evansville took fourth with 107 points.  The top five for UE performed extremely well, as their times outran the Racers’ top five in the race.

Next up for the Aces is a trip to Huntsville, Ala. for the Fleet Foot Invitational.  The race is set for next Saturday, Sept. 14.

* Women's Golf Opens Season At Redbird Invitational

The University of Evansville women’s golf team opens up the 2013 fall season with a trip to the Redbird Invitational, which will take place at the Weibring Golf Club in Normal, Ill. on Sunday and Monday.

Play begins on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. with 36 holes of play before wrapping up with 18 holes at 8:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

In what will be a great measuring stick for the Purple Aces, the tournament features five Missouri Valley Conference teams.  Bradley, Drake, Illinois State and Southern Illinois are the other Valley schools participating.  Others playing include: Ball State, Bowling Green, Illinois Wesleyan, Oakland, Ohio U., Northern Illinois, South Dakota State, Toledo and Western Illinois.

The Aces will be sporting a few new faces with freshmen Maggie Camp and Kayla Katterhenry are set to make their debuts.  Camp, a native of nearby Wadesville, Ind. and Katterhenry, who is from Newburgh, have both performed extremely well in preseason rounds and look to continue that success into the regular season.

Last season, it was then-freshman Paige Crafton posting the lowest average for the Aces.  Over the course of 24 rounds, Crafton averaged an 81.29 to lead teammate Cathy Doyle, who registered an 82.08.  Crafton’s top effort of the season was a tie for 12th place at the Benbow Invitational in the spring opener earlier this year.

Doyle tied for third place last October as Evansville hosted the Braun Intercollegiate.  She followed that up with a tie for seventh place at the Benbow Invitational in the spring.

This year will mark the 48th version of the event, which has seen the host Redbirds dominate in recent year, taking three of the last four team championships.  Toledo ended the streak last year, posting a 3-round score of 915 to win the tournament.
