* Tanner Craig named to second straight Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award watch list

For the second-straight season, University of Evansville first baseman Tanner Craig has been named to the Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award watch list, it was announced in a release from the organization on Tuesday afternoon.

The award, created by the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation, was open to nominations from all Division I baseball programs in the country.  The BBCSA is based on performance at the plate, academics and personal integrity. This year's watch list consists of 44 players representing 18 conferences around the country, including all five power conferences. Craig is joined by Dallas Baptist sophomore Jace Grady as the only two representatives of the Missouri Valley Conference on the watch list. Craig is also one of six nominees who have made the list more than once.

It was another standout year at the plate for the Scottsburg, Ind. native, who put on a power hitting clinic as a senior, hitting a team-best 12 home runs, vaulting himself into a tie for fourth in program history with 30 homers. Craig played and started in 54 of 55 games in 2021, leading the Aces with 47 RBI, while slugging a team-best .547 on the season.

The winner of the BBCSA will be announced in June and honored at a gala in the fall at the Fort Worth Club. Texas Tech's Hunter Hargrove won the initial BBCSA in 2017. Dallas Baptist's Devlin Granberg took home the honor in 2018 with Texas Tech's Josh Jung winning the award in 2019.

 
* UE Women's Swimming & Diving Heads To MVC Championships Wednesday

The University of Evansville women’s swimming and diving will head to Iowa City, Iowa on Wednesday to take part in the 2022 Missouri Valley Conference Swimming & Diving Championships, hosted by the University of Northern Iowa.  The Valley Championships will begin Wednesday at 6 p.m. and continue through Saturday night.

The UE women will enter the league championships off of a regular-season which saw the Purple Aces go 5-2 in dual meet action and pick up a second-place finish at the A3 Performance Invitational in Carbondale, Illinois back in November.  Evansville set three school records during the course of the regular-season, and will be looking to take down more at the Valley Championships.

“The ladies are ready,” said UE head swimming coach Stuart Wilson.  “They were pretty relaxed and confident after leaving campus for Iowa.  They have been training well and I expect to see some great performances from the ladies this week.”

Junior Sarah Jahns (Lilburn, Ga./Parkview) lowered UE’s record in the 200-yard backstroke back in November, and will attempt to lower it even further this week.  Fellow junior Maya Cunningham (Yakima, Wash./Eisenhower) will also try to lower her own school records in both the 200-yard butterfly and 400-yard IM this weekend.  Freshman Sveva Brugnoli (Rome, Italy) made history in November by breaking a more than 20-year-old record in the 200 IM, and will look to better that and the record in the 100-yard butterfly as well.

In all, UE’s roster features six women who currently own school records at Evansville.  That group includes the quartet of Cunningham, junior Sage Moore (Lexington, Ohio/Lexington), senior Jessie Steele (Houston, Texas/Klein) and sophomore Iryna Tsesiul (Minsk, Belarus), who set the school record in the 400-yard Medley Relay at the 2021 Valley Championships.  UE also features a group of nine women who have earned honorable mention all-MVC honors in the past, including three divers in seniors Maggie Franz (Mundelein, Ill./Mundelein), Fae Keighley (Johannesburg, South Africa) and Sarah Kempf (Greenwood, Ind./Center Grove).

 
* Vetter and Weatherford earn MVC awards

After leading the University of Evansville softball team to a perfect 5-0 record to open the 2022 season, Izzy Vetter and Sydney Weatherford were recognized by the Missouri Valley Conference on Tuesday.  Vetter was named the MVC Pitcher of the Week while Weatherford opened her career as the league’s Newcomer of the Week.

“Congratulations to Izzy and Sydney.  Izzy came out on fire this season in the circle.  She was in total control this weekend of her pitches and really dominated,” UE head softball coach Mat Mundell said.  “Sydney got off to an amazing start to her career both in the circle and at the plate.  We hoped that she would be able to come in and help us in both areas and she really did that in week one.”
 
“It was such a great team weekend all-around on the diamond and was really neat to see both a senior and freshman lead this team opening weekend.  It gives our program some real excitement for the year.”

Izzy Vetter could not have had a better start to her season in the Best on the Bayou Classic.  The senior picked up a no-hitter, three victories, 30 strikeouts and did not allow a single earned run over the course of 17 innings pitched.  Taking on defending Southland Conference regular season champion Stephen F. Austin in the opener, Vetter threw a complete game 1-hitter and struck out 10. 

Vetter came close to perfection on Saturday against Mississippi Valley State, tossing the second no-hitter of her career.  In five frames in the circle, Vetter struck out 11 batters and allowed just one baserunner.  She capped off the weekend with win #3 over SIU Edwardsville.  In five innings, she struck out nine batters and allowed three unearned runs.

In her first weekend of collegiate action, Sydney Weatherford made an impact at the plate and in the circle.  Offensively, Weatherford batted .400 with an unreal three triples, a home run, 10 RBI and four runs scored.  After going 2-8 in Friday’s doubleheader, Weatherford came through in a big way in the final three games, combining to go 6-for-12 with 10 RBI.  Against Southern, she had a triple and three RBI before adding two more RBI, a triple and homer against Mississippi Valley State. 

Weatherford added triple #3 on Sunday along with five runs batted in.  On the pitching side, she threw seven scoreless innings on Friday against Morehead State and fanned six batters while allowing just four hits.  Her efforts helped UE earn the win in nine innings.  On Saturday, she picked up the first win of her career against Southern.  She gave up three unearned runs in 3 2/3 innings.  For the week, she did not allow an earned run over the course of 10 2/3 innings while allowing nine hits and striking out nine betters.
