University of Evansville director of athletics Mark Spencer has announced a pair of promotions within the Purple Aces athletics department.

Dustin Hall is now the assistant athletic director for marketing and external operations while Scott Peace is now the assistant athletic director for ticket operations.

“Dustin and Scott have done an excellent job for our department and are very deserving of these promotions,” Spencer said. “Both are integral parts of our administration and I am excited to work with them for the long term.”

Hall came to UE in 2012 as an assistant SID after graduating from Illinois State with his Master’s degree. In September of 2014, he assumed the position of director of marketing and event management and has been in that position since that time. Hall earned his bachelor’s degree from Indiana State in 2009.

Peace joined the Aces in July of 2014 as the director of ticketing services and athletic event operations. prior to his arrival in evansville, peace worked as an account Executive with IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions at the University of South Florida. He earned his bachelor’s in sports administration from the University of Louisville in 2013 and is working towards an M.S. in Public Service Administration at UE.

* Hair named preseason All-American by Collegiate Baseball

After a stellar debut season for the University of Evansville Baseball team last spring, Trey Hair’s senior season has drawn national interest as the second baseman was named to Collegiate Baseball’s Preseason All-America Third Team on Monday.

Hair ranked as one of the best power-hitting second-basemen in the country a season ago, finishing with 20 doubles and 10 home runs. A .340 hitter overall, he finished the season with 32 extra-base hits, which leads all five second basemen who earned preseason honors on Monday. The Firth, Nebraska, native also finished the year with team best totals in runs batted in (42) and runs scored (41).

“This is an honor that Trey has certainly earned,” UE head coach Wes Carroll said. “He had a great year and then followed it up with an outstanding summer. He’s going to be a big part of what we do both offensively and defensively, and we’ll look to him to lead us again this season.”

Hair was one of three MVC players named to the squad. Missouri State third baseman Jake Burger grabbed a spot on the second team, and Dallas Baptist reliever Seth Elledge joined Hair on the third team.

Following last season, Hair was named to the Missouri Valley Conference Second Team, and Monday actually marks the second time in his career that he’s taken home national honors. After hitting .495 as a senior for Norris High School, he was named a Louisville Slugger All-American.

The 2017 UE baseball season will begin in February.

* Aces fall 89-47 at No. 8 Louisville

The University of Evansville Women’s Basketball team saw its four-game win streak snapped on Sunday as the Purple Aces dropped an 89-47 decision to eighth-ranked Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game,” UE interim head coach Matt Ruffing said. “I was hoping that we would be able to execute better. I know the windows and timing of everything narrows when you play a team like this. I just wanted to play our game, and at times, we weren’t able to do that. I’m hoping we can regroup the next couple of days and close out our nonconference schedule strong.”

UE, which was riding its longest winning streak in two years prior to the game, dropped to 4-6 on the year. Meanwhile, the Cardinals picked up their fifth straight win to move to 11-2 overall.

The Aces were led in the contest by Camary Williams, who ended with 10 points, eight rebounds and a pair of steals. Sara Dickey added eight points and four rebounds, and Ashley Hawkins led the team in boards with 10.

After a Williams three-point play five minutes into the game made it 7-7, the hosts responded with a 20-4 run to close out the first quarter and would never look back.

Kylee Shook led the Cardinals with 18 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks, and Asia Durr was second on the team with 15 points and four assists.

UE will return to action on Wednesday when the team closes out the non-conference slate with a showdown against Alabama A&M at the Ford Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
