Info You Should Know

* The View from Neu: A Monday Reflection from UE Chaplain Tammy Gieselman

Theology books are my favorite, but I also enjoy reading stories about creativity and vision. My Twitter feed is a continual list of articles that speak to realizing one’s dreams, “Four Types of Mentors You Need to Succeed,” Productivity Habits of 7 Creative Geniuses,” “10 Songs Steve Jobs Used to Train his Brain,” etc. Last week I read the “inside story” on how a t-shirt company became a $100 million dollar business. The article reported that Bert and John Jacobs, co-founders of the “Life is Good” company built a $100-million clothing empire while putting people first. Their “rollicking entrepreneurial journey” began as a fun way to scrape out a living, but evolved into the expression of a simple philosophy based on optimism. That philosophy is evident in their core-values, 10 “superpowers” and is instructive whether you want to be a better person or build a better business. The ten “Life is Good” super-powers are: Courage, Openness, Simplicity, Humor, Gratitude, Compassion, Fun, Creativity, Authenticity, and Love.

It’s not revelatory, but it is inspired. The article concluded with, “The Jacobs don’t pretend to be masters of tactics and strategy: rather, they are masters of attitude.” I don’t own a business, but I want to strive to be a better person; so this week I'm going to work on my super-powers. Happy Monday, Y’all.
 

* Reminder for First Year Students: IDEALS Survey Coming Soon

First year students will be receiving the Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey (IDEALS) in a few shorts days! Thank you for being willing to participate in this important research! Students who take the survey will be provided $5.00 in cash!!

IDEALS is a national survey that will be used to identify high-impact practices associated with positive interaction across religious and spiritual diversity. According to Interfaith Youth Core, UE will be able to leverage these high-impact practices to create a healthy campus environment, introduce effective programming/experiences, and learn more about the religious climate on campus. This study is the first of its kind. Previous studies have provided a foundational understanding of interfaith interaction, but few tools fully explore the ways in which we can leverage campus experiences to promote effective interfaith work. IDEALS is designed as a longitudinal study that explores the way in which the UE campus can better understand what programmatic experiences are effective and helpful for students. Thank you for your participation in this important work!

* Colleen Dierkes Scores as UE Women's Soccer Loses 2-1 at Butler

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team (1-5-0) received a goal from junior midfielder Colleen Dierkes in the team’s 2-1 loss at Butler (4-1-1) on Sunday afternoon. The Aces are back at home on Friday, Sept. 11 against Belmont.

“It was a frustrating day, as we put ourselves in a position to continually be chasing the game,” said Evansville head women’s soccer coach Krista McKendree. “We adjusted our formation at half and that helped get us going but unfortunately we weren’t ever able to find the equalizer.”

Butler went ahead on a 28th minute goal from Halle Stelbasky.

Ahead 1-0, Stelbasky struck again for another goal in the 53rd minute.

Down by two, UE reduced the deficit to one with a 55th minute goal from Dierkes. She took a pass from sophomore forward Nicki Baham and scored on a straightaway shot from 12 yards out.

Senior goalkeeper Simone Busby kept the Aces close by making all three of her saves in the remaining time but UE was unable to record a shot the rest of the way in the defeat.

The goal for Colleen Dierkes was her first this season and second of her career. Baham’s assist was her first this year.

Five different Aces tallied the team’s five shots in the match (Bronwyn Boswell, Colleen Dierkes, Molly Lear, JBess Ruby, Carlie Scales).

* McGrath's 81st Minute Goal Gives UE a 2-1 Win over Belmont

An 81st minute goal from sophomore midfielder Ian McGrath proved to be the game-winner as the University of Evansville men’s soccer team (1-2-0) won 2-1 against the Belmont Bruins (1-3-0) on Sunday afternoon. The victory was the first for Marshall Ray as Purple Aces head coach.

With the contest tied at one, McGrath received a centering pass from sophomore forward Desmond Dolphy and the 20 yard blast pushed UE ahead in the waning moments of the match. Belmont was unable to muster a shot the rest of the afternoon as Evansville sealed their first win of the season.

“McGrath hit an absolute cracker for the game winner,” said Ray. “This team could have withered in the heat when we gave up the equalizer but instead we dug in our heals and fought for the win.”

The match remained scoreless until the 42nd minute when senior forward Nate Opperman found sophomore midfielder Cameron Cool to his left. Cool’s straightaway strike from 21 yards out was his first career goal and it pushed UE ahead 1-0.

Trailing by one, Belmont evened up the match with an A.J. Arnold goal in the 72nd minute. McGrath’s goal eight minutes later secured the Aces victory. The goal was McGrath’s first this season and second of his career.

“Overall, I thought this win was a big step for our team,” added McGrath. “Everyone was one hundred percent into it and competing the whole game…it feels great to get a first win and we look forward to keeping things rolling.”

On the stat sheet, McGrath led UE with three shots (all on goal). Dolphy and Opperman came off the bench to provide the two Aces assists in the contest. UE finishes the 2015 ProRehab Aces Classic 1-1.

Evansville is on the road next weekend for the Veterans Memorial Cup at Marshall. The Aces’ first match will be against Bowling Green on Friday, Sept. 11 at 4:00 p.m. CDT. UE is back at home on Saturday, Sept. 26 for Homecoming against Drake. The match will begin at 7:00 p.m. CDT at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

* Cross Country performs well at Early Bird Invite

On a morning where the heat index was over 100 degrees, the University of Evansville cross country teams ran extremely well in the Early Bird Invite marking the first of three meets this fall at the Angel Mounds Cross Country Course.

“I am so proud of our teams. To run the way that they did in these conditions with the amount of training we have had was a great accomplishment,” head coach Don Walters said. “The times and places may not show it, but both our men and women did a great job. This was a good start for us. I give all of the student-athletes who ran today a lot of credit for braving the hot conditions that we had.”

Taking to the course was the men, who ran an 8K race at 10 a.m. Louisville won the team championship while John Mascari of Indiana State paced the field with a time of 24:48.7. He won by nine seconds.

Leading the way for the Purple Aces was a trio of junior with Ben Woolems pacing the squad. He posted a time of 30:15.2 to finish in 21st place overall. Woolems ran a smart race and paced himself to the finish. Right behind him was fellow junior Ross Frondorf. He took 22nd with a 30:44.2.

James Paul was the third to cross the line for UE. He registered a time of 32:00.2 to finish ahead of Aces freshman Jordan Carpenter, who finished his first race in 32:42.8. Senior Jon Ashby rounded out the top five for UE with his effort of 32:55.8.

The Cardinals edged Indiana State on the team leaderboard, recording 25 points while ISU had 30. Marshall was third with 73 points with Evansville checking in with 115.

At 10:45, the women had their turn as they ran their 5K event. Louisville swept the top three individual positions en route to the team victory. The Cardinals totaled 17 points to get past the Sycamores, who finished with 48. Marshall had 87 with the Aces finishing at 100.

Cardinals junior Claire Noser was the top finisher, running the 5K course in a time of 18:07.7. She topped teammate Aurilla Wilson by ten seconds. In her first race as a freshman, Siena Crews was the top finisher, male or female, for the Purple Aces on the day. She finished with a strong time of 19:01.1 to come home in 10th place in an impressive debut.

Also running strong was senior Elizabeth Kingshott. She checked in at 20:26.3 to take 19th place overall. Ashton Bosler was the third UE runner to cross the stripe as freshmen took two of the top three spots for UE. Bosler’s first collegiate race finished in a time of 21:12.0. She topped teammate Sophie Etienne by just 0.2 seconds as the duo was 22nd and 23rd, respectively.

Sophomore Michelle Karp completed the Aces’ top five, running a time of 21:40.7

* Aces Volleyball drops final two matches in Chicago

In a pair of marathon matches on Saturday, the University of Evansville volleyball team fell to DePaul and Toledo as the team wrapped up the DePaul Invitational. For her performance in the three matches, sophomore Genesis Miranda was named to the All-Tournament Team.

“Although we are not happy with the result, we went from less to more this weekend,” UE head coach Manolo Concepcion said. “We faced good opponents that will prepare us for the season.”

With the losses, UE falls to 3-4 on the season with a match on Tuesday evening at Tennessee on the horizon. The Aces head to Knoxville for a 7 p.m. ET match, which will be carried by the SEC Network Plus.

In the first match of the day against DePaul, Stephanie Cerino led the way with 15 kills while Genesis Miranda checked in with 13. Lorena Marquez led the way with 40 assists while Kim Deprez had 17 digs.

It was DePaul who got off to the quick start, taking an early 4-2 edge in the opening frame before winning by a final of 25-19. In the second game, luck finally found its way to Evansville’s side. Trailing 7-6, the Aces scored five in a row with four of those tallies coming via Miranda kills. Gabriela Roman also registered an ace in the rally.

They kept the lead until a bad set by UE helped the Blue Demons tie it up at 17-17. Evansville was able to get the lead back as an attack by Elizabeth Giller saw UE go up 24-20. DePaul got within one at 24-23 before a service error saw UE take the 25-23 win.

With the match tied at 1-1, DePaul rallied back to take the final two sets. The fourth game was a marathon that saw the Blue Demons take a 33-31 win. Saige Gallop and Caitlyn Coffey broke a 31-31 tie to put DU up 2-1. An 11-3 advantage in the fourth was all that DePaul needed as they clinched the match with a 25-12 win.

Genesis Miranda had a career-best 27 kills versus the Rockets while Mildrelis Rodriguez had a great match of her own with 18 tallies. A balanced offensive attack for Toledo saw five players record 10 or more kills, led by Rachel Vidourek’s final of 19.

The Aces got off to a good start against the Rockets, taking the first two sets. Toledo led the opening game by a 16-12 score before Miranda brought the Aces back. UE rallied to tie it up at 18-18 before Miranda took control. Six of Evansville’s last seven points were kills by the sophomore as the Aces won, 25-23.

UE made it a 2-0 lead as they won by a 25-20 final in game two. After the Aces jumped out to a 5-1 advantage, Joselyn Coronel helped the lead grow to six at 12-6 with a kill. A Carly Townsend kill capped off a Rocket rally as they tied it up at 18-18, but the Aces punched right back as Miranda had three kills in a game-ending 7-2 rally. It was an ace from Miranda that clinched the set.

Both teams duked it out in the third and fourth sets, but Toledo was able to eke out 25-22 and 25-23 wins to tie the score and push it to a fifth set. With the score tied at 12-12, Toledo scored the next to and had match point. With their backs against the wall, the Aces rallied back with three in a row to have match point on their side, up 15-14. Just as fast, the Rockets fought back and scored the last three points to clinch the match with a 17-15 victory.
