* Fifth Annual Ethics Lecture, Wednesday, April 9

The Ethics Program in the Department of Philosophy and Religion is pleased to present its 5th Annual Ethics Lecture: Let Them Die?: Restoring the Social in Responsibility. The lecturer will be Dr. Frederick Glennon, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. He will speak on Wednesday, April 9th, at 7:00 pm in SB 170.

In his 1964 state of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson launched an “unconditional war on poverty,” which signified a renewed commitment to our collective social responsibility for one another, especially the poor and working class. In 2012, Tea Party advocates yelled out “let him die” in response to a question posed to Ron Paul about what to do with an injured person who chooses not to buy health insurance. Why this ethical shift? This lecture will identify some answers to this question and will explore the moral frameworks any return to a more expansive understanding of our communal obligations to one another would entail in the current social and political climate.

* Katterhenry Wins Again at Bradley

For the second week in a row, freshman Kayla Katterhenry was victorious. Her 2-round total of 146 gave her the top score as the University of Evansville women’s golf team competed at the Bradley Invitational at Pekin Country Club.

Katterhenry carded scores of 73 on Saturday and Sunday en route to a 146. She finished two strokes ahead of runner-up McCall Christopher of Indiana State. The pair was tied following Saturday’s action.

For the Newburgh native, it marked her second victory in a row. She is just the second female in program history to win more than one event. Katterhenry joins UE Hall of Famer Andrea Werner, who posted two victories in her career.

Her efforts held the Aces finish in seventh place overall. Behind her was junior Cathy Doyle. She finished in a tie for 17th with a 157. Seven strokes behind her was sophomore Paige Crafton. She finished the final round with an 86 for a total of 164.

With a 2-round score of 168, freshman Maggie Camp tied for 47th place while Dana Hayden was just behind her with a 182. Individuals Kelly Lamarche (181) and Rachel Marchi (184) finished out the UE contingent.

Southern Illinois tied for the low round of the day as they took top team honors. The Salukis finished their two rounds with a 617, overcoming a 3-stroke deficit heading into the final round. Butler, who held the lead going into Sunday’s action, took second place with a 619. Northern Illinois tied SIU’s low round of the day with a 308 and took third place.

Evansville finished in a tie for 7th place with Loyola. Each school posted a 635.

It is hard to believe that just one regular season event remains for the Aces. Next Sunday and Monday, UE will play at the Indiana State Invitational at the Terre Haute Country Club.

* Men's Golf Victorious at Bradley

All five University of Evansville men’s golfers finished in the top 14 as the Purple Aces won their second event of the season at the Bradley Invitational at Pekin Country Club.

A win at the Don Benbow Intercollegiate began the spring and the Aces were back at it again on Sunday in Peoria. All five UE players were separated by just four strokes as each one finished in the top 14. That tally also includes Evansville’s individual.

Leading the way was Parker Hensley. After carding a 71 on Saturday, he finished with a 73 on Sunday to finish in a tie for seventh place.

Alex Turner and Quinn Vilneff each tied for 10th place. Both finished with 2-round totals of 146. Rick Voyvodic and Will Knights tied for 14th place with each shooting a 148. Voyvodic led Evansville with a low round of 70 on Sunday.

Making the effort even more impressive was the performance of freshman Brett Wolvert, who played as an individual. He tied for 14th place with a 148.

After trailing by a stroke entering the final round, Evansville shot the second-best round of the day on their way to the win. As a team, the Aces shot a 579 to finish five strokes ahead of Loyola. The Ramblers posted the low round of the event on Sunday with a 288, but their 296 on Saturday proved to be too much to overcome. Detroit and Bradley tied for third with a 586.

Medalist went to Seth Trolia of host Bradley. Troila was one of seven players tied for second place following the opening round, but finished with a 4-under 68 to win the event with a 139. That was two strokes better than second-place finisher Jacob Groninger of IPFW.

Just one more regular season event remains for the Aces. The squad travels to Bloomington, Ind. next weekend for the Indiana Intercollegiate. The tournament is slated for Saturday and Sunday at the IU Golf Course.

* Aces Lose Series to Wichita State

The University of Evansville softball team fell in the final game of the Missouri Valley Conference weekend series against Wichita State on Sunday by a score of 8-3.

The Purple Aces went 1-2 against the Shockers at Cooper Stadium this weekend leading to a 15-18 overall record with a 3-8 record against Valley teams. The Shockers are now 22-15 with a 9-3 MVC record.

Head coach Mark Redburn managed to see a bunch of positives even though his team was unable to come away with the series win:

“The difference today between a win and a loss was just the team making plays, both in the circle and at the plate. With the hits being nine to seven in favor of Wichita, it wasn’t that bad of a loss for us. We need to get ourselves in a good habit, especially when it comes to having two outs on the board. Today we didn’t get those outs and we made a few mistakes in the circle and at the plate. I thought one of the big differences for us today was that we chased at the plate and made a few base running errors that ultimately led to the loss. As long as we keep battling we will turn things around.”

The game started out with a scoreless first inning as Megan Gurski (7-9) and Sloan Anderson (9-10) faced off in the circle for their teams.

The Shockers scored first in the top of the second on an RBI by Macklin Hitz the DP, giving the visiting squad an early 1-0 lead.

The top of the third was where Wichita would start to pull away as the Shockers scored four runs in the inning as Liz Broyles and Melanie Jaegers both hit a two RBI single to increase the Shockers lead, 5-0.

Evansville did not give up though as the Purple Aces added two runs of their own in the bottom of the third as Victoria Dellorto had a ground out RBI and the pitcher Gurski hit an RBI double to cut the Shockers lead 5-2.

Gurski held the Shockers scoreless in the top of the fourth and Evansville’s Chandra Parr hit a solo homerun to cut WSU’s lead to 5-3.

The top of the fifth inning saw Wichita State increase their lead as Gurski allowed the Shockers to score three more runs, increasing their lead 8-3 and that would be it for the junior pitcher, as the Aces brought in freshman Danielle Freeman to close out the game.

Gurski finished the day throwing 4.0 innings, giving up eight runs and striking out four.

Freeman would battle with Kaitlyn Malone from WSU for the final three innings and both pitchers were able to keep the opposing offenses off the board.

The freshman from Grand Rapids, Mich., finished the game pitching 3.0 innings, allowing zero runs and struck out two.

Up next for Evansville is a trip to Murray, Ky. on Wednesday, April 9 to take on the Murray State Racers in a mid-week doubleheader.

* Aces Tennis Takes 5-2 Win in Home Finale

In the final home match of the season, the University of Evansville women’s tennis team took a 5-2 victory over UNI at Wesselman Park on Sunday morning.

With the win, the Purple Aces improved to 6-10 on the season and 1-2 in Missouri Valley Conference play. Prior to the match, Kelsey Costales was honored during Senior Day festivities.

Evansville rallied around her, beginning with doubles play. For the seventh time in the last nine matches, UE grabbed the opening point of the match. Natasha James and Costales won their fourth in a row at top doubles. They defeated Jieke Stroobant and Erica Medlin, 8-4.

At No. 2 doubles, Marina Moreno and Marketa Trousilova pushed their season mark to 9-1. They picked up an 8-5 win over Elvira Lopez and Astrid Santos. Third flight doubles saw Krissy Lankelma and Jordyn Kearney defeat Mina Milovic and Andjela Brguljan, 8-5.

Four out of six singles tilts went Evansville’s way, leading to the 5-2 final. In the top flight, Trousilova improved to 7-1 in her last eight as she defeated Stroobant, 6-1, 6-4.

James also completed a perfect day with a win. She defeated Medlin in the second flight, 6-1, 6-3. Brguljan and Milovic took victories in their respective flights on Sunday. Brguljan faced Lankelma in flight five, earning the win in three sets, 4-6, 7-6, 10-8. Milovic earned the win at No. 6 singles, defeating Kearney, 6-0, 6-1.

Lopez defeated Moreno in flight three, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. No. 4 singles saw Costales fall to Santos, 7-6, 5-7, 10-2.
