* Summer Hours Begin Today

This summer, the University will once again operate using  a modified work schedule  For the period May 9 through August 5, full-time staff and administrative employees may again work a 7½ hour day with a one hour lunch period. Business hours for the campus will also be adjusted during this period from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  In all cases, the area supervisor is responsible for the scheduling decisions that will best meet University and each department’s service requirements during business hours.  We will return to regular hours on Monday, Aug. 8.

The ability to maintain a summer work schedule is incumbent on ensuring coverage to service our many constituencies.  As we have evolved into an institution of increasingly high quality, a greater demand exists to maintain that reputation by providing full service.  Most offices are experiencing ever-increasing requirements to communicate with potential students and their parents during the summer months. Each employee’s continued commitment to meeting those needs  is greatly appreciated.

* Aces' Season Ends As Bears Win Game Three

The University of Evansville softball team lost its final game of the season today, dropping a 7-0 decision against Missouri State.

Meanwhile, Bradley was able to pull out a 5-4 win against Wichita State, improving the Braves to 6-19 in the Missouri Valley Conference and moving them into eighth place in the conference. With two less losses than the Aces, the Braves take the eighth and final seed in the State Farm MVC Tournament.

The Aces end the season ranked ninth in the MVC, going 6-21 in Valley play with a 12-42 overall record.

Game Recap: UE 0, MSU 7

The Bears came out swinging to start the day, managing a bases-loaded situation with one out in the bottom of the first inning. But freshman starter Taylor Perry came through with a timely strikeout before the inning ended with an infield ground out to prevent Missouri State from scoring.

The Aces answered by loading the bases themselves in the top of the second. A walk, a fielder’s choice and a Missouri State error put runners at every corner with no outs. But the inning ended with three runners stranded, as the Bears were able to find a way to retire the next three Evansville batters to end the Aces’ threat.

The Bears jumped on the board in the bottom of the second, using two hits and an Evansville error to push two runs across and take a 2-0 lead.

The Bears struck again in the bottom of the third, scoring two more runs off just one hit while taking advantage of a second UE throwing error.

Missouri State added three more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, extending its lead to 7-0.  The Aces held the Bears to a seven-run lead through the rest of the game, but Evansville was unable to score as Missouri State claimed the series with the win.

Perry took the loss in the circle, dropping to 4-12 on the season.

Junior Allison Aguilera ended the day 2-for-2 at the plate with a single and a double. Senior Kelci Alsip added the Aces’ only other hit of the game, notching a single in the fourth inning.

* UE Baseball Team Falls to Sycamores

In Sunday’s rubber match, the University of Evansville baseball team fell, 4-1, to Indiana State at Bob Warn Field. The loss drops Evansville’s record to 26-17 overall and 6-8 in the Missouri Valley Conference, while the Sycamores won the series, 2-1, and improved to 24-21 and 6-9 in the MVC.

ISU’s Jason Van Skike (4-3) shut down the Aces’ offense, throwing the complete game, allowing one run, scattering six hits, four walks, and struck out four for the win. Senior Cody Fick also had a solid outing for UE, throwing all eight, giving up four runs, two earned, five hits, and struck out seven. However, with little run support, Fick’s record fell to 6-3.
Offensively, Fick and senior Ryan Oesterle led Evansville with two hits apiece, while freshmen Brett Wiley and Jake Mahon had the Aces’ only other hits of the contest. Senior Greg Wallace did not reach base in the game, but did have UE’s lone RBI.

The Sycamores scored first in the bottom of the second inning with two unearned runs. Jordan Lucas led off with a single, but when Mahon at first tried to get the lead runner for a double play on Hedges’ sharp grounder, Mahon’s throw when wide to shortstop Eric Stamets and the Aces did not record an out on the play. Tyler Wampler plated one run on a single to right field and Adam Richart’s fielder’s choice that was extremely close to an inning-ending double play scored ISU’s second run.

Indiana State made it 4-0 in the sixth inning when Lucas led off with a single again, and Hedges followed with a two-run homer run over the left field wall.

Evansville broke onto the board in the top of the eighth as Mahon led off with a single and advanced to third on two wild pitches. Wallace knocked him home with a ground out to first base. Fick tried to keep the rally going with two outs, lining a single through the left side, but Van Skike shut the Aces down from there, including striking out two in the ninth.
The Aces are back in action Wednesday when they host Austin Peay at 6 p.m. at Braun Stadium.
