* Trailblazing Astronaut Eileen Collins to Speak at UE's Snyder Lecture on October 17

Trailblazing astronaut Eileen Collins, the first woman to pilot and command an American spacecraft, will be the guest speaker for the University of Evansville’s Patricia H. Snyder Lecture in October. The lecture is planned for Wednesday, October 17, at 7:00 p.m., in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center, on UE’s campus. The event is free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of the Snyder family.

One of America’s most admired women, Col. Collins became the first female to pilot a US spacecraft with the Discovery shuttle flight in 1995, and the first female commander on the 1999 Columbia shuttle flight. In 2005, NASA tapped her to command the space shuttle Discovery’s historic “Return to Flight” mission, NASA’s first manned flight following the loss of space shuttle Columbia in 2003. While logging 872 hours in space, Collins earned a reputation for coolness under pressure.

Collins will discuss how her career as an astronaut took shape, from her early years in the US Air Force to her ground-breaking experience with NASA. Drawing from her career experiences, she will share valuable insights learned from both her successes and her failures. She will also provide insight into the future of space travel as the world turns to exciting new space frontiers.

The Patricia H. Snyder Concert and Lecture Series was made possible in 1997 through an endowment from the late Patricia H. Snyder, trustee and longtime friend of the University, to bring speakers or performers of renown to Evansville at no cost to the public.

Reservations are encouraged, but a ticket is not required to enter. Save your seat online here.

She is currently litigating constitutional challenges to the federal terrorist watch list, the presidential travel ban, and state attempts to silence advocacy on behalf of Palestine. CAIR also has a large docket of employment discrimination and prison discrimination cases. 

Prior to joining CAIR, Homer worked for five years at the leading international law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan on constitutional law and technology cases, on behalf of some of the largest Silicon Valley companies.

Athletics

* Men's golf ready for EKU Intercollegiate

A week after opening their 2018-19 campaign, the University of Evansville men’s golf team returns to action this weekend at the Eastern Kentucky Intercollegiate.

The University Club at Arlington in Richmond, Kentucky, will host the tournament, which features 36 holes on Saturday with the final 18 set for Sunday. Play begins with an 8:30 a.m. ET shotgun start on Saturday with 9:00 a.m. start taking place on the final day. Par is 70 and yardage is 6,623.

A crowded field will join the Purple Aces including host EKU, Cleveland State, SIU Edwardsville, Northern Kentucky, UT Martin, DePaul, Morehead State, Murray State, Ohio U., Eastern Michigan, California Baptist, Eastern Illinois, Marshall, and Longwood.

UE opened the season last weekend at the Fuzzy Zoeller Intercollegiate in Henryville, Ind.  Dallas Koth made his debut for the Aces, coming home in a tie for 27th place.  His rounds finished at 73, 74 and 72 as he finished three over par for the tournament with a 219.

Noah Reese and Jessie Brumley tied for second on the team with scores of 227 while Spencer Wagner finished just behind with a 228.

Evansville completed the event in 11th place, just seven strokes out of the top ten.

* Volleyball to complete non-conference slate in Dayton

Non-conference play comes to a close this weekend as the University of Evansville volleyball team heads to Dayton, Ohio, for the Flyer Invitational.  UE faces Ohio State, Dayton and Tennessee in the tournament.

On Tuesday, the Aces played their final home non-conference contest against Tennessee State, earning the win in five sets. Rachel Tam had 25 kills while Mildrelis Rodriguez had 14 and Kerra Cornist set her career mark with 12; Allana McInnis added 60 assists, the top mark of her career.

Tam added 25 more kills in 62 tries against TSU and continues to be near the top of the national standings in several categories. She is 3rd in the nation with 193 total kills, 5th in the country with 208.0 total points, 11th with 4.71 kills per set and 25th in the NCAA with 436 total attacks. Tam has finished with at least 11 kills in each match of the 2018 campaign; she has recorded 20 or more on four occasions while hitting .242 or higher six times.

Another impressive effort against Tennessee State saw Mildrelis Rodriguez post a career-high 24 digs while notching 14 kills. The senior has five double-doubles in ten matches this season and ranks second on the team with 3.27 kills per set and third with 2.83 digs per game. Rodriguez is 32nrd in the country with 427 attempts while her total 152.0 points and 134 kills are in the top 100 in the country.

Allana McInnis had the top match of her college career against Tennessee State, registering a total of 60 assists in leading UE to a 5-set win.  That effort came just three days after she earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team as UE hosted the Dunn Hospitality Invitational on Sept. 8.

Ohio State brings an 8-1 mark to the Flyer Invitational with wins coming over Texas A&M and Missouri with their only loss coming to Ole Miss. The Buckeyes are led by Lauren Witte, who ranks 17th in the country hitting .423.

Dayton sports a 6-4 record, but three of those losses have come to nationally ranked opponents (12-Washington, 13-Pittsburgh, 16-Kentucky).  Lauren Bruns paces the Flyers with 4.23 kills per set.

Tennessee stands at 7-2 and has already defeated two nationally ranked opponents including a season-opening win over #22 Michigan State before earning a win over #16 San Diego last weekend. They are led by Tessa Grubbs’ 3.72 kills per game.
