* Fiddick Lecture to Discuss "American Sports and Political Activism"

Steven GietschierThe University of Evansville’s Department of History is proud to welcome Steven P. Gietschier, university curator and associate professor of history at Lindenwood University, for the 14th annual Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture.
Gietschier will present “‘From Before Jackie Robinson to After Ferguson.’ American Sports and Political Activism” at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 30, in Room 170 of the Schroeder School of Business Building. His lecture is free and open to the public.

In the wake of professional athletes commenting publicly on the events in Ferguson and other acts that have led to community protests, Gietschier will examine the long history of American athletes getting involved in political or social activism. He will explore the circumstances where American athletes have stepped away from their games and into the larger arena in which we all live, as well as the times when they have they not. He will examine why these decisions were made and the results of these decisions.

Gietschier earned his BSFS in International Affairs from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and his MA and PhD in history from The Ohio State University. Before being appointed to the Lindenwood faculty in 2009, he worked for the Ohio Historical Society, the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, and The Sporting News. He joined the staff of The Sporting News in 1986, as the publication was celebrating its centennial, to take charge of the company's archives. He turned a chaotic collection of books, periodicals, photographs, index cards, clippings, and other materials into the Sporting News Research Center, one of the outstanding special libraries specific to sport, especially baseball, in the United States. He also wrote the annual "Year in Review" essay in the Baseball Guide and edited the Complete Baseball Record Book for five years.

“Steve Gietschier is an extremely distinguished historian of American sports and we are absolutely thrilled to bring him to the University of Evansville to deliver the Fiddick Lecture and interact with students in class,” said James MacLeod, UE professor of history and director of the Fiddick Memorial Lecture Series. “Professional athletes have played an important role in our nation’s politics over the years, and we are very much looking forward to having one of the country’s leading sports historians with us for the Fiddick Lecture.”

“It is especially appropriate,” added MacLeod, “Given Tom Fiddick’s lifelong passion for professional sports, especially baseball.”

Fiddick, for whom the Fiddick Memorial Lecture is named, served as professor of history at the University of Evansville from 1963 to 2002. In his 39 years at the University, he was a dedicated teacher, a productive scholar, and a tireless fighter in the cause of justice. His untimely death on the day of his retirement in 2002 stunned the entire UE community, especially his many former students. It was from the former students’ efforts in particular, with the support of Fiddick’s friends and the University, that the annual Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture was established.

Info You Should Know

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

Peter W. Marty, Lutheran minister, wrote an article for the Christian Century a few years ago about William H. Whyte who was a leader in the study of modern urban street life and spent decades studying the patterns of diverse people on the move. Marty told of Whyte’s fascinating analyses of crowd behavior on New York City streets, using time-lapse photography and extensive notes and graphs, which are published in his 1988 book City: Rediscovering the Center. Whyte discovered that pedestrians walking on busy sidewalks have a natural way of avoiding collisions with one another. Without even realizing it, they form a mass or a crowd that is both smooth and efficient. "They give and they take, at once aggressive and accommodating." The sidewalk scene comes alive with movement and color -- people walking quickly, walking slowly, skipping up steps, weaving in and out in crossing patterns, accelerating and retarding to match the moves of others. There is a beauty," Whyte said of this sight, "that is beguiling to watch."

As I peruse through my already full inbox on Monday morning, I’m struck by the image of us, the UE community, walking quickly, walking slowly, skipping up steps, weaving in and out in crossing patterns, accelerating and retarding throughout the week. Like the people on that crowded New York City sidewalk, it’s captivating to watch our UE community at work, crunching numbers, copying brochures, coaching the last practice before the big game, rehearsing the last measure for the 14th time, writing the report over again after the third proof, and the list goes on. My hope for us this week is that we take time to look up and to notice the people who help form our community, our life together; that we understand better the importance of getting out of our offices and participating in meaningful conversations with our colleagues. I’m reminded of something Parker Palmer once wrote: In community one learns that the problems we pose for one another are not obstacles blocking our progress, but ways of refining our understandings, and if we can embrace the problems (and each other) then the possibilities appear.

* Reminder: First Year Students Earn $5.00 for Taking IDEALS Survey

IDEALS PosterFirst year students can earn $5.00 just by taking the IDEALS survey, which was sent to their UE email account last week.

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!

* Aces cross country runs at Commodore Classic

A crowded field of participants took part in the Commodore Classic on Saturday as the University of Evansville cross country teams ran their third race of the season. Freshman Siena Crews and junior Ben Woolems led their respective squads.

“This meet was against some stellar competition, but our times were not what we were looking for,” head coach Don Walters said. “The conditions changed after we arrived and got very humid, but everyone else was battling those same conditions.”

“I do want to give a lot of credit to Michelle Karp for just making it to the race and getting close to her PR. What she did set a great example for our teams.”

Karp spent Friday evening working as a trainer at a local high school football game. After a late night, she got a few hours of sleep, drove to Nashville and competed at a high level. She came within five seconds of her PR, running a 20:33.2 to finish third on the UE squad. Leading the women was Crews. She finished 167th out of 244 runners with a 5K time of 19:36.3.

Elizabeth Kingshott was second for UE, finishing in a time of 20:03.8. It was her top 5K race of the year. Karp was the third Ace across the stripe with Ashton Bosler trailing her. Bosler posted a time of 20:46.0, besting her PR from the Early Bird Invite. Laurel Wolfe (21:53.3) rounded out the top five while Bailey George, Ashley Torres, Hayley Elliott, Katie Beaber and Anna Loef rounded out the squad.

Woolems was the top performer on the men’s side. His 8K time checked in at 29:55.3, placing him 193rd out of 213 runners. Ross Frondorf was next, posting a 30:08.0 while Paul Schwartz ran a 30:16.8 to finish third on the team. Jordan Carpenter set a PR as he crossed the line in 30:59.5. It was almost two minutes under his best time in the Early Bird Invite.

James Paul, Vince Cecil, Andrew Barrett and Daniel Zoufal completed the UE contingent. For Cecil, it was his debut with the program. He ran a respectable 31:33.1 in his first race.

Next Saturday, the Aces are back in the state of Tennessee when they travel to the Austin Peay Cross Country Festival.

* Purple Aces volleyball completes Chippewa Challenge

University of Evansville sophomore Genesis Miranda tallied 28 kills in a pair of matches on Saturday as the Purple Aces finished up the Chippewa Challenge in Michigan.

In the opener, the Aces (6-8) fell to Omaha in five sets before dropping the late game to San Jose State by a 3-1 final.

“We grew through good and bad moments this weekend. A young team like ours, needs these kinds of adverse situations to develop,” UE head coach Manolo Concepcion said. “Our "best" this weekend was a very high level, so that is encouraging. Now, its about working on the low points, our weakest links, and training specificity in preparation for our first week of Conference.”

“We went through Pre-Season where we played similar levels of what we will see in the conference, so our team could learn create comfortability in uncomfortable scenarios. I look forward to lead a team full of long-term potential.”

Highlighting the day was an 18-kill effort by Miranda against the Mavericks with Mildrelis Rodriguez had 11 and Stephanie Cerino totaled 10. Miranda led the way for UE in the second match, tallying ten. Lorena Marquez tallied 59 assists on Saturday while Kim Deprez had an impressive pair of efforts with 53 digs. Included in that was 35 versus Omaha.

Evansville picked up a win the first set, defeating the Mavericks, 25-21. A good start saw the Purple Aces score the opening three points before Omaha found its rhythm, tying it up at 8-8. The Aces had a big answer as Stephanie Cerino and Elizabeth Giller recorded two kills apiece as UE reeled off the next seven tallies before earning the 25-21 win.

A 5-1 run to begin the second game was all Omaha needed to take a 25-20 win and tie up the match. Evansville got within one at 16-15, but the Mavericks rallied back to finish off the set.

In the third game, a pair of Lorena Marquez service aces saw UE jump out to a 4-0 lead. The lead extended to 13-7 before Omaha made its way back, utilizing a 6-1 stretch to cut the UE lead to just a point at 14-13. A 5-1 run by Evansville put momentum back in their favor as back-to-back service aces by Miranda pushed UE to a 25-19 win.

The Mavericks started game four on a 5-1 run before Evansville took advantage of a Cerino kill to get back in the game and take a 10-9 lead. Just as fast as the Aces got back into the game, Omaha tied it up at 10-10 and with the score tied at 12-12, they scored 12 of the next 14 points to push their edge to a game-high 24-14 before winning by a 25-18 final. They were able to capitalize on that momentum in the deciding game, taking the match with a 15-8 victory.

Set #1 against San Jose State was an all-out battle. Eight ties led to an 11-11 score before the Aces scored three in a row on kills by Miranda and Fortuny. Down 14-11, San Jose State went on an 8-1 stretch as they opened up their largest lead at 19-15. The Aces did not let the deficit deter them as a Marquez service ace highlighted a rally that saw UE tie it up at 21-21 before two more Miranda tallies gave UE a 25-23 win.

Early in the second frame, it looked as if UE had momentum on its side, taking a 3-1 lead. With the score tied at 7-7, though, the Spartans extended their muscle as an unbelievable stretch pushed them to a 25-13 win to knot the match at 1-1. San Jose State was able to keep its momentum rolling in the third and fourth sets, clinching the match with finals of 25-11 and 25-17.

Missouri Valley Conference play commences next weekend for UE as they travel to Iowa to take on Drake and UNI.

* UE Women's Soccer Defeated 2-1 at Vanderbilt

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team (2-7-1) was defeated 2-1 at Vanderbilt (5-4-1) on Sunday afternoon. Senior midfielder Caitie Dierkes scored her first career goal as UE’s second half opportunities came up just a bit short in the one goal loss.

“The girls played the best we have played collectively this season,” said Evansville head women’s soccer coach Krista McKendree. “They came out with a desire to compete and win. We played very good soccer against a very athletic team and created some very good looks on goal. This is how we needed to play heading into our conference opener on Saturday.”

UE leapt ahead in just the seventh minute of the match. Junior defender Jordin Campbell sent a ball up the right wing for Dierkes. Her shot from the close right side was scored in the center of the goal for the 1-0 advantage.

Evansville nearly extended the lead in the 37th minute but a shot from junior Bronwyn Boswell bounced off the post. Vanderbilt then assembled a counterattack and tied the contest on a 38th minute goal. The Commodores also scored the go-ahead goal in the 70th minute.

Trailing by one, UE had a few opportunities to even up the match but a 75th minute shot from junior midfielder Colleen Dierkes, a 76th minute attempt by Boswell and a 77th minute shot from freshman forward Sara Osinski were all saved by Vanderbilt goalkeeper Christiana Ogunsami. Evansville’s last attempt from Colleen Dierkes in the 88th minute also sailed wide as Vanderbilt claimed the one goal win.

The Aces outshot the Commodores 11-10 in the match including a game-high four from Boswell (three on goal). The assist from Campbell was the first of her collegiate career. Senior goalkeeper Simone Busby also recorded four saves.

The Aces return home to host Loyola on Saturday, Sept. 26. It will be the team’s annual Multiple Sclerosis game and Homecoming with kickoff set for 3:00 p.m. CDT. Homecoming festivities include a soccer doubleheader, an on-campus carnival, an athletics yard sale, on field recognitions and the first fireworks extravaganza in UE Athletics history!
