* Softball doubleheader vs. EIU cancelled

Due to the impending inclement weather in the Evansville area today, the University of Evansville softball doubleheader against Eastern Illinois has been cancelled.

No make-up date has been announced at this time.

The first home game of the season is now set for March 19 against Drake. This weekend, the Purple Aces will be in Bloomington for the Indiana Classic, where they are set to take on Indiana University and Ohio University.

* Men's golf takes second at Benbow Invitational

Tyler Gray and Will Knights tied for sixth place as the University of Evansville Men’s Golf team finished in second place in their first spring tournament – the Don Benbow Invitational – at Jacksonville Beach Golf Club.

As a team, the Purple Aces posted a 587, finishing 10 strokes behind winner Florida Atlantic and five ahead of third place Laval.

Leading the way for UE were Knights and Gray, who each finished with totals of 144. Gray posted a 72 in each round while Knights carded a 71 on Monday before finishing with a 73 on Tuesday. Firing off the low round of the day for the Aces was Rick Voyvodic. The senior improved his efforts from Monday by six shots, notching an even 71. He tied for eleventh.

Joseph Addante also saw improvement in round two. He jumped three strokes to record a 74 to finish the event with a 151, tying for twentieth. Three behind him was Wil Pahud, whose 154 was good for a twenty-third-place tie.

Individual Jon Pick finished with a 1-over 72 in the final round to tie for fourteenth with a final score of 149. Noah Reese tied for thirty-third with a 157 while Austin Carmack saw his score from Monday drop by four strokes as he finished with a 164 following his round of 80.

Medalist went to Laval’s Baptiste Mory, who won by one stroke. Mory’s 3-under 68 in the final round saw him finish with a 140.

Evansville will stay in Florida where it will begin play in the Butler Intercollegiate today.

* Women's Tennis moves to 3-0 on Florida trip

The third match in the last two days saw the University of Evansville Women’s Tennis team earn a 6-1 victory over Aquinas in Winter Haven, Florida.

“This was a solid win from top to bottom. Aquinas is a solid NAIA team that is very strong at the top of their lineup. To get a win in our second match of the day with our number one and number two singles players suffering from illness and injury is a good step for our team as we are preparing for the start of the Valley Conference season in less than a month,” Aces head coach Jayson Wiseman said.

“Doreen and Kennedy both put together impressive 3-match win streaks in singles, which will only help to build their confidence going forward. Marina and Angela won both their completed matches at number three doubles and will be a tough team to deal with in the next month and a half. Overall I'm very pleased with the effort we put in the last few days, and I'm very proud of how we handled some adversity and difficult situations and still managed to put wins on the scoreboard and go 3-0 in Florida,” Wiseman continued.

Evansville picked up the singles point to begin the day. In the second flight, Kennedy Craig and Katie Delgado earned an 8-2 win while Marina Moreno and Andjela Brguljan picked up an 8-0 win at No. 3 doubles to give UE the point.

In singles action, the Purple Aces earned wins in flights two through six to finish off the 6-1 win. Delgado earned the win in No. 2 singles, 6-1, 6-1. Crasta played in the third flight, also winning by finals of 6-1 and 6-1.

Brguljan took the win in the fourth group, 6-0, 6-1 while Craig was victorious in the fifth flight, 6-1, 6-0. Leah Helpingstine rounded out the wins for the Aces, winning in two sets in the sixth flight, 6-2, 6-3.

* Katterhenry wins again as Aces take second at Benbow

Kayla Katterhenry picked up her fourth victory of the 2015-16 school year as she helped the University of Evansville Women’s Golf team take second place at the Benbow Invitational at Jacksonville Beach Golf Club.

With a 76 in the second round, Katterhenry finished in a tie with Christine Cates of Butler atop the leaderboard. In a playoff, Katterhenry took the edge in the first hole to clinch the championship. She notched a 74 in the first round of the event.

It marks her fourth victory of the year and second in a row, following her win in the fall finale – the Braun Intercollegiate in Evansville.

Madison Chaney had the best day for the Purple Aces. Her 74 was an improvement of eight strokes from Monday’s total as she finished in seventh place with a 156. She was just six shots behind the winning duo.

Giulia Mallmann continued her consistency, posting identical rounds of 80 to tie for fourteenth place overall. She notched 80s on Monday and Tuesday. Next up was Maggie Camp. She also saw stellar improvement in day two, jumping 13 strokes to notch an 80 to tie for thirty-fifth. Maria Pickens tied for forty-sixth place with a final score of 179.

Rachel Marchi finished in thirty-ninth place with a 175 as an individual while Carly Waggoner recorded a 179 thanks to an 87 on Tuesday.

A stellar team effort all the way around saw the Aces finish in second place in the tournament, just three behind winner Butler. Evansville notched a 310 on Tuesday, improving by 13 strokes from Monday’s performance. They were four strokes ahead of Northern Kentucky.

The Aces begin play in the Butler Invitational in Jacksonville tomorrow.

* Baseball scores 29 runs in dismantling of UT Martin

In the seventh inning on Tuesday night, pinch hitter Billy Lipari walked to the plate for the University of Evansville baseball team looking for his first hit of the season.

He hit a grand slam.

It was that kind of night for the Purple Aces as the team tied a school record with a 29-9 rout of UT Martin at Skyhawk Field.

Lipari, who is the second Aces player in as many games to record a grand slam for his first hit of the season, also supplied the history-making hit in the ball game as the four-run bomb took UE’s run total up to 29 runs, tying the school record set on May 15, 1996 against Southern Illinois.

Nine different Aces recorded multiple hits in the contest as UE would score in each of the first seven innings of the game to race out to the big lead. Trey Hair led the way in the hit column, ending 4-for-8 with three scores and three runs batted in, and Korbin Williams actually reached base seven times, going 3-for-5 with three walks and two homers. Boomer Synek pushed across five runs with a 3-for-4 showing at the plate.

“The runs really came from all over the line-up today,” UE head coach Wes Carroll said. “It was great to have an offensive explosion like this after it took us a while to get going in the first few games of the season. I feel like the line-up is starting to hit its stride, and we just had quality at-bats from the top of the line-up all the way to the bottom. Now it’s just important to stay focused heading into four games in Virginia this weekend.”

Overall, the Aces registered 23 hits on the night with a school-record-tying 15 walks and a season-best four home runs.

It didn’t take long at all for the scoring to get started as Williams, the third batter of the game, sent a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left-center to draw first blood. The runs would keep coming in the first inning too as UT Martin starter Matt McKinstry wouldn’t make it out of the opening stanza, giving up seven runs on six hits before stepping off the mound with one out left in the bottom of the first.

It would only get worse from there for the hosts out of the Ohio Valley Conference as Williams led off the second inning with a solo shot to center, and Jonathan Ramon would single home another later in the frame to make it 9-0 after two.

Williams is the first player to leave the park twice in a game since former Ace Kevin Kaczmarski accomplished the feat on March 26, 2014.

Hair would make it three homers in three innings for the Aces with a two-run blast in the top of the third, to kick-start another seven- run frame, but a pair of errors and five hits in the bottom half canceled it out as the game moved into the fourth with the Aces leading 16-7.

A bases-loaded walk to Matt Jones and singles from Synek and Josh Jyawook brought home four more in the fourth as the Aces hit the 20-run mark for the first time since a 24-3 win at Austin Peay on April 5, 2011.

UE would go on to score one apiece in the fifth and sixth innings before Lipari’s grand slam put an exclamation point on yet another seven-run frame in the seventh.

Three Aces saw time on the mound in the contest, with Alex Weigand leading the way. The freshman lefty scattered nine hits over six innings, allowing nine runs (four earned) and striking out five. Blake Swanger and Alex Gould combined to pitch a perfect final three innings, helping UE secure a sixth consecutive win.

The Aces will return to action on Friday with a trip to Virginia to begin play at the Liberty Invitational.
