Treasures and Traditions

* Wallace Graves Hall

When the University of Evansville decided to expand its power plant, the campus building for the Nursing Department was demolished. As a result, a new health sciences building was erected between Hughes Hall and Harper Dining Center.
A large portion of the funds for the new Health Sciences building came from a $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health Education and Welfare. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on this $2.6 million project on Nov. 3, 1972. William R. Needler, co-chairman of the UE Nursing Fund Drive, turned the first shovel of dirt. The doors of the Health Sciences Building were opened for the first week of the 1974-75 school year. In 1997, it was re-dedicated and renamed in honor of Wallace Graves, UE's sixth president.



* Old And New To Meet In Men's Soccer Alumni Exhibition

This Friday, the University of Evansville men’s soccer team will get one last test before opening the 2011 regular season at the University of Kentucky Tournament on Sept. 2. The Purple Aces will welcome back former UE men’s soccer players for an Alumni exhibition match, starting at 5 p.m. on Black Beauty Field at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

The Aces come off Monday’s, 2-1, exhibition loss to Saint Louis University after topping the University of Illinois Springfield, 4-0, three days earlier.

Freshman Ryan Stallings and junior Jesse Sharpe have each tallied two goals in friendly play this season, while freshman Charlie Macias has netted one. Senior Tad Kreamalmeyer (2 assists) and freshman Drew Schall (1 assist) have also helped lead the attack.

In goal, freshman Eric Teppen and junior Robert Randant have both been able to get time in before the start of the regular season. Teppen owns a 1.69 goals against average with four saves in 106:23 minutes, while Randant has yet to let a ball past him with three saves in 73:37 minutes.

Following Friday’s Alumni match, the UE women’s soccer team hosts Central Michigan University at 7 p.m. in their 2011 home-opener.

* Women's Soccer To Take On CMU And Valpo This Weekend

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team looks to get its first win of the 2011 regular season when the Purple Aces host Central Michigan University in UE’s home-opener, Friday at 7 p.m. The Aces will then take to the road Sunday for a 1 p.m. match versus Valparaiso University.

Central Michigan comes into Friday’s contest off a 1-0 victory over Detroit last Friday. That win extended the Chippewas’ home win-streak to 26 matches. However, on the road, CMU is not quite as dominant, recording a 1-3-1 record in 2010 against non-conference opponents on the road. Last season, the Chippewas finished 16-5-1 overall and 10-1 in the Mid-American Conference. The defending MAC champions have been picked to finish second this season. CMU returns nine starters from that team and is led offensively by junior Laura Twidle, a two-time All-MAC selection and leading scorer with eight goals in 2010. Friday’s meeting marks the first between UE and CMU in program history.

Valparaiso enters the weekend with a 1-1 record after dropping a 1-0 decision to Morehead State at Brown Field last Friday. Valpo then scored three times in the first half on Sunday on the way to a 4-2 triumph over IPFW at Brown Field. The Crusaders were picked to finish seventh in the Horizon League this season according to the preseason poll. They finished tied for seventh in the regular season a year ago with a 5-8-5 overall record and a 1-5-2 mark in league play. Leading the attack, junior Luisa Desario has 10 career goals and six assists, and is just one goal shy of the top-10 all-time in a Crusader uniform. Evansville holds a 6-2-1 lead in the all-time series between the two squads, dating back to 1993.

The Aces come off an 0-1-1 opening week after a season-opening 2-2 tie to Indiana University and a 4-0 loss to Saint Louis University. Juniors Kasey Cartwright and Danielle Langness piloted the Aces with their second half goals, while sophomore transfer Tasha Prentice tallied an assist in UE’s comeback draw with IU. Against SLU, the Billikens set the offensive pace, as they outshot UE, 11-1.

Junior Danielle Langness scored Evansville’s tying goal in Friday’s 2-2 draw with Indiana University. Langness made a heads-up attack on a cleared ball by an IU defender, and booted a perfectly arched shot over the head of the Hoosiers’ goalie into the back of the net. The score marked her second career goal.

Evansville’s 2-2 draw with Indiana University marked the first time in program history for the Aces to tie with IU. UE owns a 1-5-1 record against the Hoosiers, with the last win coming in 1994.

UE’s first goal of the season was netted by junior Kasey Cartwright, marking her third career goal.

Goalkeeper Chaviel Harrison played all 200:00 minutes in the net last week, making 12 saves. Harrison made 116 saves last season, setting the UE single-season record.

In the Missouri Valley Conference preseason poll, voted upon by the league’s head coaches, Evansville was picked to finish sixth in the conference. The Aces received 15 points in the poll. Defending champion, Creighton was chosen first with 45 points. Sophomore Breana Beine, the MVC Freshman of the Year and first team all-conference selection in 2010, was named to the 2011 MVC Preseason Team, while senior Sam Conrad was recognized as honorable mention in the poll.

Team                           Points
1. Creighton                 45
2. Illinois State             39
3. Missouri State         38
4. Indiana State           24
5. Drake                        21
6. Evansville                 15
7. UNI                            14

Breana Beine leads UE in scoring with 7 career goals and 2 assists, totaling 16 points, while Kristen Davis had recorded five career goals. Kaitlin Robinett (3g, 3a) and Kasey Cartwright (3g, 1a) each have tallied three goals.

The leader of the 2008 MVC Coaching Staff of the Year, Krista McKendree became the first coach in UE history to lead a team to an NCAA Division I Tournament in his or her rookie year. She was also part of the MVC Coaching Staff of the Year in 2006 as an assistant coach at UE. In her fourth season at the helm, McKendree owns a 24-31-4 career coaching record.
