* Deprez and Miranda honored as Aces finish weekend

Following stellar outings in the Dunn Hospitality Tournament, University of Evansville volleyball players Kim Deprez and Genesis Miranda were named to the All-Tournament Team as the Purple Aces finished the weekend at 2-1.

Evansville (5-6) fell to Northern Kentucky (5-5) by a 3-0 final in the last game of the tournament.  Miranda led Evansville with 18 kills and Stephanie Cerino tallied ten.  Mildrelis Rodriguez posted a match-high 22 digs while Deprez had 13.  Lorena Marquez had 39 assists.

“I think this weekend was a great stepping stone for us.  I feel like we synced our offense and defense really well, which we have been working at for a while, so that was great to see,” Deprez said.  “It was very calm on the court like we knew we were going to win.  We did not get the result we wanted in our last match, but we learned a lot and are ready to come out on top at our next tournament at Central Michigan.”

Miranda was also excited with the weekend and the beginning to Evansville’s home schedule.

“This weekend was great and exciting because we played at home,” Miranda said.  “We all played well and as a team, we improved on a lot of things including defense and blocking.  These games will help us to keep working hard and get off to a strong start in the conference.”

Early in the first set, Evansville grabbed the early 8-5 lead thanks to two kills apiece from Miranda and Cerino.  A 5-0 spurt by the Norse put them on top by a 10-8 score before UE fought back to tie it at 10-10.  UE later extended that stretch to go up by a 15-12 margin before a 6-1 run by NKU put them up 19-16.  Down the stretch, Northern Kentucky converted as they reeled off the final two points of the set to break at 23-23 tie and take the win.

In the second frame, the Norse once again had the answers late as they took a 25-20 win.  Seven ties led to a 12-12 score before Northern Kentucky rallied ahead 16-13 on a UE error.  After Evansville tied it up at 17-17, the Norse punched back with a set-ending 8-3 run to go up 2-0.

A 3-0 start to game three looked like it would propel the Aces to a win, but a late rally from the Norse saw them finish off the match.  Rocio Fortuny served UE to the early lead.  The advantage for Evansville grew to as many as six points at 19-13 as Cerino recorded a service ace.  Tristen Simpson helped NKU fight back as a 7-2 stretch saw them trail by one at 21-20. 

Evansville looked like it was back on track as a bad set by the Norse gave the Aces a 24-22 lead.  It was not to be as Haley Libs notched two kills in a row before Simpson registered her ninth of the set to clinch the match for Northern Kentucky.  Simpsons led NKU with 14 kills while Creamer had 12 and Jayden Julian finished the night with 11.

UE will play its final non-conference tournament next weekend in Mt. Pleasant, Mich.  The Aces begin the event against host Central Michigan before taking on Nebraska-Omaha and San Jose State.

* Times fall as Aces cross country competes at Bradley

Times fell across the board as the University of Evansville cross country squads competed in the Bradley Intercollegiate on Friday afternoon. The men took to the course first for an 8K race while the women ran a 3-mile race, which is just shorter than the usual 5K race. A 5K event is just over 3.1 miles.

Freshman Siena Crews was once again the top finisher for the women. She had a stellar race, coming home in 12th place with a time of 17:49.3. It was a great effort as she lowered her time from last week’s debut of 19:01.1. Making her effort even more impressive was that her finish came in a race that featured a total of 110 runners.

Finishing second for the Aces was senior Elizabeth Kingshott. Her time of 18:40.5 was good for 27th place. Ashton Bosler, another freshman for UE, was the third to cross the line for the team. She ran a 19:16.3, which bested last weekend’s time of 21:12.0. Bosler came home in 34th place.

Laurel Wolfe and Bailey George wrapped up the top five for Evansville. Wolfe took 48th, running a 19:53.0. She knocked over three minutes off of her debut time last weekend at Angel Mounds. George was two spots behind Wolfe in 50th. She checked in with a 19:56.0. An impressive start to the season has seen George take over six minutes off her PR time from 2013 and put together two stellar races.

Coming in 71st and 72nd were Hayley Elliott and Ashley Torres. Elliott finished the race in 20:53.7 while Torres was 1.6 seconds behind. Also registering times for UE were Anna Loef (21:30.9) and Katherine Beaber (21:41.7). Host Bradley swept the top four positions on their way to the championship. Sisters Caitlin and Kristen Busch finished the race tied atop the leaderboard with a winning time of 16:49.8.

Junior Ross Frondorf led the way for the men. In an 8K race that had 78 runners, Frondorf finished in 32th place in a time of 28:31.3. He knocked 2:13 off of last week’s time in the Early Bird Invite. Ben Woolems was not far behind as he came home in 37th, posting a time of 29:01.1. He cut over a minute off of his time in the opener.

Crossing the line third for the men was freshman Andrew Barrett. Following a debut last weekend that saw him run a 33:12.2, Barrett came back with a vengeance, finishing the 8K in 29:31.0. He took 48th, just ahead of Paul Schwartz, who also ran well. Schwartz finished in 29:31.2, almost five minutes ahead of his previous best.

Rounding out the top five was James Paul with a time of 29:38.1, two minutes ahead of his pace in the opener and his best overall time in almost two years. Matthew Spencer was next at 30:22.0 while Jon Ashby completed the 8K in 31:34.1. They finished 56th and 62nd, respectively. Daniel Zoufal took 66th with his effort of 32:48.0. It was a new PR for the freshman, improving by almost six minutes from his debut.

Caleb Beck of Bradley edged teammate Taylor Floyd Mews by a fraction of a second for the top spot. Beck’s winning time was 25:04.0.

Both races were scored as duals for the NCAA Division I institutions. Evansville’s women took second, topping Western Illinois and Chicago State. The men took fourth.

* Boswell Scores Twice as UE Women's Soccer Wins 2-1

Junior midfielder Bronwyn Boswell scored two goals on Sunday afternoon as the University of Evansville women’s soccer team (2-5-1) won 2-1 against IUPUI (2-4-1) at Arad McCutchan Stadium. Boswell now has a team-high three goals this season and it is the third multi-goal game of her collegiate career.

“I’m glad the girls got a result today,” said Evansville women’s soccer head coach Krista McKendree. “They have been working hard and have been deserving of one. We created some very good chances today and I’m happy we were finally able to put some of them away.”

IUPUI went ahead off a corner kick in the 28th minute that led to a Lauren Kulaga goal. The Jaguars took the 1-0 advantage into halftime despite being outshot 8-4 and committing 10 fouls.  Evansville tied up the match in the 48th minute when senior midfielder Allie Arguello dribbled the ball up the middle and passed left for Boswell, who scored in the lower right corner. Even at one, UE then pushed ahead in the 55th minute when Boswell’s free kick from just to the left of the 18 yard box bested Schmidt in the lower right corner.

“At halftime, I was just thinking we needed someone to be a difference maker,” added Boswell. “I’m glad I was able to help in that. It felt really good to have a multi-goal game and I hope there will be more of them in the future.”
Trailing 2-1, IUPUI had a pair of chances in the waning moments but an 88th minute shot from Tori Minnich was saved by leaping UE senior goalkeeper Simone Busby. Then in the final minute, Minnich had another shot off a corner kick but the UE defense was able to deflect the ball away at the goal line and preserve the 2-1 victory.
Boswell led all players with four shots (three on goal). Arguello’s assist was her second this season and she also tallied three shots (two on goal). Busby recorded one save.

UE’s next two matches will be on the road at St. Louis (Sept. 17) and at Vanderbilt (Sept. 20). The next home match is the team’s Missouri Valley Conference opener against Loyola on Sept. 26. It will be Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Night and Homecoming with kickoff set for 3:00 p.m. CDT.

Wil Pahud fired rounds of 76 and 74 as he led the University of Evansville men’s golf team in the opening day of the Weibring Intercollegiate in Normal, Ill.

Another freshman – Zac Turi – played as an individual for UE.  His rounds of 80 and 79 put him in a tie for 85th.

As a team, Evansville ranks in 17th overall.  Through two rounds, the Purple Aces sit with a 614 after rounds of 312 and 302.  UE has a chance to advance into the top 15 as they are just eight shots behind SIU Edwardsville.  Loyola is 16th with a 609.
