* Concepcion signs extension with Purple Aces

University of Evansville Director of Athletics Mark Spencer has announced the signing of head volleyball coach Manolo Concepcion to a contract extension with the Purple Aces.

"I am excited to announce the extension for Coach Concepcion," Spencer said. "He has done a good job in his first two years with the program and are happy to have him continue to lead the team in the future."

Concepcion has brought in talented student-athletes from all around the world into the program since his arrival in the spring of 2013. Despite injuries up and down the roster last season, his team performed well and was recognized for its efforts.

Outside of the classroom, he has seen his student-athletes perform at a top level. His squad finished the 2013-14 season with a 3.7 GPA, the highest amongst UE's 14 sports. He has also seen players perform at their best under his watch as every performer has had their best year with him at the helm.

Senior Ashley Ring earned a spot on the All-MVC First Team after finishing one of the top careers in school history. She completed her career with 1,338 kills, fourth in the record books for the Aces. Genesis Miranda was named to the All-Freshman Team. Due to injuries to her teammates, Miranda played in several different positions including setter. Despite the hurdles, she still finished seventh in the conference with 3.18 kills per set, which was an amazing feat.

Under his tutelage, Katie Klages and Rachel TenHoor had record-setting efforts in 2013. Klages finished her career setting the all-time UE digs mark while TenHoor hit .321 that season, the top performance in the UE record book.

"I am grateful for Mr. Spencer cementing our mutual commitment with this extension because it demonstrates that UE Athletics firmly believes in our vision," Concepcion said. "It is an honor to represent this institution and brand. Our focus will continue to be centered around the molding of transformational leaders on and off the court, with the emotional intelligence to succeed above and beyond the years in college of each of our student-athletes."

"The goal is to create a long-term winning culture through a process-oriented mindset with an emphasis on maximization of potential," Concepcion added. "We are excited about the future of this program!"

* Kaczmarski, Strain Shine in Evansville's 10-0 Win at Bradley

The University of Evansville baseball team (22-18, 6-9) won 10-0 in a mercy rule shortened, seven inning game at Bradley (29-11, 7-5) on Sunday afternoon. Outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski was 5-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, three runs scored and three RBIs. His five hits tied a career-high and moved his batting average to .455. Pitcher Connor Strain (3-4) also took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, earning the complete game shutout in the sweep-preventing victory.

“Strain gave us a great effort, avoiding the big inning and worked around some leadoff walks,” said UE head coach Wes Carroll. “Kaczmarski had a day for the record books with five hits and finishing just a home run shy of the cycle.”

Evansville hopped on Bradley early with two first inning runs on a Kaczmarski RBI triple and another single from infielder Jonathan Ramon. Ahead 2-0, Strain worked around a jam in the bottom of the inning and left two Braves runners on base.

UE extended their lead in the third. A double by Kacmzarski pushed the Aces ahead by three. Ramon’s RBI single and a fielding error plated two more runs for the 5-0 cushion.

Up by a handful of runs, Evansville tallied three more runs in the fourth. Kaczmarski’s run producing single, Ramon’s RBI groundout and a run scoring single from Eric McKibban moved UE ahead by eight. Two Purple Aces runs in the sixth created a double digit lead.

Bradley designated hitter Elliot Ashbeck broke up Strain’s no-hitter with a one out single in the sixth. Strain (3-4 ) yielded just one more hit in the complete game win. He threw 7.0 scoreless innings of two hit, five walk baseball while also striking out four. This was the first career complete game and shutout for Strain.

Ramon finished the day 3-for-5 with three RBIs and a run scored. Outfielder Josh Jyawook totaled two hits, moving his hitting streak to 18 straight games. Jyawook also had three runs scored, tying a career-high. Outfielder Jarod Perry was 1-for-4 with two runs scored, advancing his on base streak to 41 consecutive games.

Kaczmarski has now hit safely in 14 games in a row. His first inning triple was the 18th in his UE career, passing Pat Schulz (1990-1993) for second most in program history. The two doubles for Kaczmarski gave him 61 in his time with Evansville, tying Phil Broshears 1997-2000) for fourth most in Purple Aces history.

Evansville’s next game is at home on Tuesday, April 28 against Indiana. First pitch is 6:00 p.m. at Braun Stadium. Adult tickets are $7 as senior/youth tickets are just $5.
