* Native plant sale benefits SW Indiana ecological communities

Extra plants from the native plant garden in the Koch Center for Engineering and Science will be sold at a local native plant sale held by the Southwest Indiana Native Plant and Wildlife Society (SWINPAWS). The plant sale will occur Saturday, October 14 from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at the SWIMGA Display Garden, located at 3501 E. Lloyd Expressway, in Evansville. The UE community is invited to this native plant sale!

SWINPAWS promotes native plants as an essential part of Southwest Indiana’s ecological communities. Unfortunately, habitat destruction and introduction of non-native plant species has led to the loss and degradation of wetlands, prairies, and forests, resulting in reduced numbers of native plant species. The plants offered in the sale will help support our native pollinators and herbivores by providing food, shelter and a place to raise their young. Native birds, insects and other wildlife depend on native plants to thrive.

* Long struggle for racial equality in Indiana topic of Fiddick Lecture

James H. Madison, Thomas and Kathryn Miller Professor Emeritus of History at Indiana University, Bloomington, will be the speaker for this year’s University of Evansville Thomas C. Fiddick Memorial Lecture. The event is planned for Friday, November 3. at 7:00 p.m. in Room 170 (Smythe Lecture Hall) in the Schroeder School of Business Building. This is the 16th year for the lecture, which is free and open to the public.

Madison will be delivering an illustrated lecture on “Hoosiers and the Long Struggle for Racial Equality.”

For over two centuries the people of Indiana have struggled with challenges of race. There were times when African American Hoosiers could not vote, when the danger of lynching was real, when the Ku Klux Klan seemed right and necessary, when segregationists created schools, restaurants, and basketball tournaments for whites only. Beginning in the1950s, Indiana reformers began a push toward equality that we know as the great civil rights movement. Madison’s lecture will focus on several flash points of challenge and change to spark thinking about race and about where we have been, where we are, and where we want to go as citizens in a changing world.

Madison is without doubt one of the most distinguished scholars to work in the field of Indiana history. An award winning teacher for over four decades at IU, he is the author of several books, including Eli Lilly: A Life; A Lynching in the Heartland: Race and Memory in America; and Slinging Doughnuts for the Boys: An American Woman in World War II. He has taught as a Fulbright professor in Japan and England and has served on the boards of Indiana Humanities and the Indiana Historical Society, as well as being a member of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission. Madison’s most recent book is the highly acclaimed bicentennial history, Hoosiers: A New History of Indiana; it is the basis for an Emmy-awarded PBS documentary on Indiana’s history.

“Professor Jim Madison is an extremely eminent scholar of Indiana History 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.

“As recent events have catapulted race relations back into the center of public discourse,” MacLeod added, “this is a perfect time to educate ourselves about the history of racial equality in our home state. There can be few better-qualified people to tell this story than Professor Madison. It is especially appropriate given Tom Fiddick’s lifelong passion for many of the key issues discussed by Jim Madison, especially Civil Rights.”

Thomas C. 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 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.

“The Fiddick Lecture is one of the best events of the year, as we get to celebrate the career of a truly outstanding faculty member here at UE,” MacLeod said. “Tom Fiddick was a brilliant scholar and an incredible teacher who made a life-transforming impact on generations of students.”

* Volleyball puts up a fight in 3-0 loss to #21 UNI

Facing a nationally-ranked UNI squad, the University of Evansville volleyball team put up a solid effort on Saturday at Meeks Family Fieldhouse, dropping a 3-0 decision.

Mildrelis Rodriguez led everyone with 12 kills and 47 attempts. She also had 8 digs for the Purple Aces (6-12, 0-6 MVC). Rachel Tam had six kills. Cassie Brooks notched 16 digs on the night while Allana McInnis checked in with 23 helpers.

Piper Thomas and Karlie Taylor led the Panthers (16-4, 6-0 MVC) offense with 11 kills apiece while Heather Hook posted six kills and a game-high 34 assists.

UE held its ground in the first set. After the Panthers scooted out to a 10-5 lead, the Aces fought back to make it an 11-8 game. From there, UNI extended the advantage for a 25-16 win.

UNI started game two on a 5-2 stretch before Mildrelis Rodriguez ended the rally with a kill to bring the Aces back within two. The Panthers overcame that and pulled away as the game continued, winning by a 25-13 final.

In the third set, UNI looked like it would pull away for an easy win, but Evansville had other ideas. The Panthers jumped out to a 10-3 lead before Rodriguez helped UE make its way back. A 5-0 run set the Aces forward before they tied it up at 11-11.

After the Panthers scored four in a row to jump back up by a 15-11 score, UE once again reeled off four straight to knot the score. Despite the momentum gained by the Aces, UNI was able to hang on as they pulled back ahead for a 25-19 win to clinch the match in three sets.

Today the Aces wrap up the home stand with another 7:00 p.m. tilt against Bradley at Meeks Family Fieldhouse.

* Women's soccer downed by Illinois State

The University of Evansville women's soccer team dropped a road conference match with Illinois State, 3-0, in Normal, Illinois, on Saturday night.

Illinois State opened the match with an early goal in the eighth minute as Lafayette scored from the top of the box off an assist by Zickert.

Despite facing 19 Redbird shots in the opening half, Evansville preserved the one-goal deficit heading into the break as freshman goalkeeper Michaela Till made three saves in the first 45 minutes.

The Redbirds pushed their lead to 2-0 with a goal in the 66th minute as Zickert scored off a Redbird corner. Five minutes later, Illinois State added a third goal as Lafayette scored her second of the match, assisted by Brittany Paganucci, as the Redbirds grabbed the match win, 3-0.

Senior midfielder Ian McGrath scored the lone goal for the Aces (5-5-1, 0-2-1 MVC) and tallied a team-best four shots in the loss. Akeem Bradford and Rafael Mentzingen led the way ffor Valpo as each scored for the Crusaders (6-5-1, 3-2-0 MVC).

The Crusaders got on the board first in the 16th minute as Akeem Bradford scored an unassisted goal from 20 yards out after disrupting an Aces' clear attempt.

In the 38th minute, Valpo added a second goal as Jordan James crossed the ball through the box and Rafael Mentzingen tapped it home from 10 yards out.

Evansville wasted no time cutting the Crusaders' lead in half as McGrath headed in a cross from junior midfielder Zac Blaydes in the 48th minute that pushed the Aces within a goal at 2-1.

The Aces owned the second-half, earning an 8-4 advantage in shots, but UE was unable to find the equalizer late.
