* UE Theatre Presents Shadow Hour in May Studio Theatre

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre proudly presents Ralph Tropf’s Shadow Hour, opening tonight at 7:30 p.m., in the May Studio Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m. on March 19, 21, 23, and 24, and at 2:00 p.m. on March 20.

Shadow Hour is Tropf’s gripping drama surrounding the trial and conviction of a United States senator, Adam Martin. After a moment of passion, what was intended to be a platonic date between two colleagues soon becomes the center of a nationally disputed court case. The country watches as the trial attempts to discover the truth from both a defendant and plaintiff who aren’t certain of it themselves. Through intricately woven scenes of juror deliberation and suspenseful cross-examination, Tropf’s tale becomes a provocative discussion of agency, responsibility, and guilt.

Brogan Lozano, a senior from San Antonio, Texas, directs the student-led production of Shadow Hour. Tucker Steinlage, a junior from Buford, Georgia, serves as the scenic designer; Eva Porras from Kingwood, Texas, is the costume designer; Avery Reagan, a junior from Conyers, Georgia, is the lighting designer; Matt McDonald, a freshman from Indianapolis, Indiana, serves the sound designer; and Peter Orkiszewski, a senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, is the dramaturg.

Junior Chris Brumley from Louisville, Kentucky, portrays the defendant Senator Martin, while junior Hannah Connally from Arlington, Texas, plays the plaintiff Christy Connelly. Rounding out the ensemble are freshmen Kristopher Adams from Houston, Texas, Jennifer Baker from Vernon Hills, Illinois, Alexandra Curren from McKinney, Texas, Kathleen Finch from College Station, Texas, and Luke Kelly from Dubuque, Iowa; juniors Robbie Love from St. Louis, Missouri, and Kendall Reasons from Spring Hill, Tennessee; and seniors Amelya Hensley from Lexington, Kentucky, Glyne Pease from Las Vegas, Nevada, Tara Sorg from Haubstadt, Indiana, and Grace Theobald from Louisville, Kentucky.

Ticket prices are $11 for adults and $9 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Tickets may be purchased by calling 812-488-2031, Monday through Friday, noon to 5:00 p.m.

* University Choir and Wind Ensemble receive historic distinctions

The University Choir and Wind Ensemble both received historic distinctions last month. The University Choir, conducted by associate professor of music Dennis Malfatti performed by invitation at the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Central Division Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

ACDA is a non-profit professional organization composed of nearly 20,000 choral musicians representing schools, colleges, and universities, industry and institutional organizations, houses of worship, and community and professional choirs. An invited performance at an ACDA conference is among the highest honors a choir in the United States can receive. Selection to perform at an ACDA conference requires undergoing a rigorous vetting process, especially among college/university choirs, entailing the submission of three years-worth of recordings and programs among other documentation.

The same week as the choir’s performance at ACDA, the UE Wind Ensemble performed at the College Band Directors National Association, North Central Conference on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. The North Central Conference featured eight university bands from a 10-state region, chosen by audition. The UE Wind Ensemble is conducted by associate professor of music and director of bands Kenneth Steinsultz. Professor of music Timothy Zifer was a guest conductor on the program. Assistant professor of music Shawn Teichmer was featured as saxophone soloist, and consortium faculty member Ross Erickson was also featured on the vibraphone.

These two invitations mark the highest achievements both ensembles have received in the University’s history.

* Stevenson and students present research and win research awards at professional psychology conferences

UE psychology majors Emily Denne, Breigh House, Evan McCracken (alumnus), Tyler Plogher (alumnus), and Taylor Wornica, and associate professor Margaret Stevenson recently attended several professional psychology conferences where they presented a total of four talks and six poster research presentations and won several research awards.

House was honored at the APLS Minority Affairs Banquet for winning a competitive APPLE (Access Path to Psychology and Law Experience) grant for research through Division 41 of the American Psychological Association.

A poster presentation, spearheaded by House, and co-authored by Stevenson, McCracken, and Plogher was awarded the “APLS Student Research Award.” The presentation was titled “Racially Diverse Juries Make White Jurors Feel Less Comfortable and More Self-Focused.”

Plogher’s senior thesis research, titled “My Husband is a Sex Offender: Stereotyping and Implications for Discrimination” was honored as an invited presentation at the annual American Psychology and Law Society (AP-LS) conference for being awarded third place for the “APLS Best Undergraduate Research Paper.”

At the annual Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) Conference in San Diego in February, Denne and Wornica presented a poster, co-authored with Stevenson, titled “Effects of Decision-Maker Gender on Child Custodial Decisions in Cases Involving Child Abuse.”

At the annual American Psychology and Law Society (AP-LS) Conference in San Diego, California in March, Stevenson chaired two symposia sessions titled “Predictors of Child Custodial Case Outcomes: Implications from Experimental and Archival Research,” and “Moral Disengagement as a Predictor and Mediator of Legal Judgments” and presented a talk within the former symposium titled “Dehumanizing Children Increases Child Physical Punishment: Applications of Stereotype Content Model.”

McCracken also presented a talk within this symposium session, co-authored with Plogher and Stevenson, titled “Just Like Your Father: Sex Offenders’ Sons are Dehumanized and Ostracized.”

Wornica and Denne presented invited talks at APLS, titled “Effects of a Mother’s History of Mental Illness on Child Custodial Decisions” and “Understanding Child Custodial Decisions: Implications from Stereotype Content Model,” respectively.

Finally, House, Buechler, and Stevenson will be presenting two research presentations at the Association for Psychological Science (APS) Conference in Chicago this May.

These research projects were funded by multiple UE undergraduate research grants, an ARSAF grant, and grants through the American Psychology and Law Society. Travel for the students was funded in part by UE’s student government and by competitive grants from Division 41 of the American Psychology and Law Society.

The article will be published in the third edition of the Encyclopedia of Islam. Birjandi was a renowned 16th century Persian astronomer, mathematician, physicist, and logician: a polymath genius. At a special session (by invitation) of the joint annual meetings of the American Mathematical Society and Mathematical Association of American in January, Azarian presented a paper about Birjandi and his legacy.

* D-1 powerhouses collaborate to save endangered frogs

Six UE biology majors, one biology alumnus, and assistant professor of biology Noah Gordon recently participated in a collaboration with biologists from Purdue, Indiana State, and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to collect data on the state endangered crawfish frog. Their goal was to assess the genetics of this species for reestablishing populations.

Students Kane Stratman, Andrew Nunn, Beth Andrews, Tyler Wintermute, Christina Schilling, and Aisha Tijjani spent many nights over spring break searching for the elusive frog. Despite being assigned what all acknowledge to be the most challenging population in the state to survey, the Purple Aces frog team managed to sample seven frogs. Go Aces! 



* Aces softball fights to the wire at Kansas

In a game that went down to the wire, Kansas hit a 10th-inning home run to finish off a doubleheader on Tuesday against the University of Evansville softball team.

The Jayhawks (19-10) took game one by a 7-0 final before the Purple Aces (11-14) put up a great fight in game two. Kansas posted the first two runs of the game before the Aces knotted it up at 2-2 in the fourth. The game remained scoreless until a walk-off home run capped off a Jayhawk win.

Courtney Land knocked in both of UE’s runs in game two, tying up the game after KU took a 2-0 lead. Samantha Fleming made the start, giving up the two runs in the first two innings before Morgan Florey came in to finish it off. She pitched a career-high seven 1/3 innings, but giving up just four hits. She kept the Aces right there until the Jayhawks finished the day with a walk-off homer by Lily Behrmann.

Kansas limited Evansville to three hits in the opening game as Andie Formby pitched the complete game for the Jayhawks. KU scored a pair of runs in the top of the first and never looked back in the 7-0 win. The Aces notched a hit in each of the first three innings, but the final 13 batters were retired.

In the second game, the Jayhawks posted two in the bottom of the first once again, but this time, the Aces had the answer. With one out in the top of the fourth, Michal Luckett drew a walk. Two batters later, Hayli Scott singled to center and both runners would advance on the throw. That brought Courtney Land to the plate and she came through, lacing a double to right center to tie the game up at 2-2.

It stayed that way until Behrmann’s home run in the bottom of the tenth.

Another home MVC series is set for this weekend as the Purple Aces welcome UNI to Cooper Stadium. A noon doubleheader is set for Friday with a single game set for noon on Saturday.

* Pahud notches hole-in-one in final round at TTU

Joseph Addante rounded out the squad with an 83 to finish with 243 shots. Jon Pick was the Aces’ top individual. An 81 in round three gave him a total of 240 for the tournament. Noah Reese tied his best round of the event, registering an 80 to finish with a final score of 246.

Western Kentucky made a late rally to take the team victory. A 291 on Tuesday saw the Hilltoppers erase a 10-shot deficit to finish with an 876, three ahead of Murray State. The Racers had the top two individual finishers, including medalist Preston French, who finished with a 213, two ahead of teammate Jared Gosser.

* Aces wrap up Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate

Kayla Katterhenry had the low round of the day and vaulted up the leaderboard in the final day of the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate at Sevierville Golf Club.

Katterhenry fired off a 70 on Tuesday, four shots better than anyone in the field. That effort launched her to a fourth place finish with a 231. After posting rounds of 80 and 81, Katterhenry dropped her score by ten strokes. Madison Chaney had her best round of the event on Tuesday, posting an 81 to finish tied for thirty-third with a 250. Chaney’s round on Tuesday was one under her 82 on Sunday.

Maggie Camp carded an 88 in the final round and tied for thirty-sixth with a 251. Giulia Mallmann finished the tournament with a score of 262 following her round of 89 while Maria Pickens notched a 91 and completed the tournament with 272 shots.

Individual Carly Waggoner recorded her lowest round of the tournament as her 86 gave her a final score of 269. Rachel Marchi dropped her Monday round by seven strokes, posting a 95 to finish with a 286.

Evansville came home in ninth place in the event. Taking top honors was Southern Mississippi. The Golden Eagles held off a furious charge by Tennessee Tech to win by five shots. USM’s Valentina Haupt and Emily Dixon of Youngstown State finished the tournament tied atop the individual list.

The next action for the Purple Aces will be the Bradley Invitational. Set for April 2-3, the event will be held at Weaver Ridge Golf Club in Peoria, Illinois.

* Purple Aces Club Golf Classic set for May 16

Oak Meadow Country Club will serve as host to the 2016 Purple Aces Club Golf Classic on Monday, May 16. One of the most important and entertaining fundraisers of the year, the golf classic is open to all. Individuals can sign up to play for $150 while foursomes are available for $600. The entry fee includes your golf, a boxed lunch, drinks, a polo shirt, and post-golf hors d’oeuvres.

On-site registration and lunch begin at 11:00 a.m. with a shotgun start commencing the action at noon. A post-golf reception will begin at approximately 5:00 p.m. with the awards ceremony taking place 30 minutes later.

A registration link will be posted very soon, but to reserve your spot immediately, contact Amy Davidson at 812-488-2199 or

The format is a four person scramble where everyone hits off the tee. Teams start on the regular tee and move back after a birdie, up for a bogie and up after two consecutive pars. All players putt and there is a maximum of two putts on each green. Mulligans will not be available. In their place, a length of string will be provided to make a putt without an additional stroke being added. Once a length is used, it cannot be reused. Additional lengths may be purchased.

This format should allow for normal pace of play as it adds no additional strokes and actually eliminates strokes as a team from the fairway.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available and include a hole sponsor, longest drive, closest to the pin, carts, reception, and event title.

For more information on those opportunities, please contact John Rodgers at 812-488-2488.
