Info You Should Know

* Sexual Assault Statistics

Sexual Assault Awareness is critical for many reasons. Around 20% of women will be sexually assaulted in college while 4% of men will. Most victims are assaulted by someone they know and 42% of women expect to be raped again. Nearly another 42% of college women raped will end up telling no one; only 5% of overall college sexual assaults are reported. These assaults can lead to serious problems. 4 out of 5 victims suffer from chronic physical and psychological conditions. Rape results in about 32,000 pregnancies a year and 40% of the survivors develop a sexually transmitted disease. Even more tragic, survivors are 13% more likely to attempt suicide compared to those who have not. These, and many more, reasons are why Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) should be important to you for more than just the month of April.

Athletics

* Aces roll to series sweep behind pair of gems from Smith and Reinhardt

Turning-in a complete effort in all three phases of the game, the University of Evansville baseball team secured a three-game series sweep of Missouri State with 9-2 and 14-2 wins in Saturday's doubleheader in Springfield, Mo.

"Great week for Aces Baseball. We got 4 straight quality starts from our pitchers," said Aces head baseball coach Wes Carroll. "Today we competed in all facets of the game. Everybody helped contribute which was great to see. We know what we are capable of."

Game One: Evansville 9, Missouri State 2

Key to its recent success, the Aces got another excellent start from their starter with sophomore Nick Smith pitching a gem. Smith pitched six scoreless innings to start his outing, but the Bears were sharp on the mound as well, keeping Evansville off the scoreboard until the sixth.

In the sixth, Widder was hit by a pitch to open the inning and advanced to second after a groundout. With two outs, Eric Roberts came in as a pinch hitter and delivered immediately, driving a double to right bringing WIdder home and opening the scoring,

An inning later, it was Evan Berkey who added to the lead, contributing a two-run double to left that scored Widder and Simon Scherry, giving the Aces a 3-0 lead.

For the first and what would be the only time on the day, Evansville ran into some trouble in the seventh with the bases loaded. After a run was walked in, Drew Dominik came in and quickly fired a strikeout after falling behind 3-0 in the count to end the inning.

The Aces responded to Dominik's strikeout by blowing the game wide open in the eighth. Evansville scored six runs in the inning with Rumsey and Widder each recording RBI on base hits before Berkey launched a three-run homer to left as the Aces went ahead 9-1.

In the ninth, Missouri State pushed across one, but Dominik locked-down the Evansville win, 9-2.


Game Two: Evansville 14, Missouri State 2

The second game of the doubleheader began much like the first with both sides getting strong outings out of their starters. Evansville was able to get to the Bears first with a pair of runs coming across on a double by Mark Shallenberger. Two innings later, the Aces chased the Bears starter when Widder smashed a three-run shot into the Missouri State bullpen, handing the Aces a 5-0 lead.

A single run for the Bears was all Missouri State could muster as an answer in the bottom of the sixth as UE starter Caleb Reinhardt continued to cruise. Key to pulling away for the series sweep, Evansville tacked on a total of nine runs over the course of the final three innings. Highlighting the burst of late runs was Chase Hug's two-run homer in the seventh that re-sparked the Aces offense.

Reinhardt lasted into the eighth inning finishing with eight innings of work, allowing just one earned run and striking-out six Bears, while walking just one. On in relief, Shane Harris helped close down the win for the Aces despite a run coming across as Evansville secured a series sweep with the 14-2 win.

Evansville was strong in all facets over the week, amassing 40 runs in four games and allowing just nine. The Aces smashed eight home runs in their 4-0 week and defensively they turned five double plays. All four of the Aces starting pitchers lasted 29.1 innings and combined to record a 1.53 ERA.

The Aces return to action on Wednesday with a midweek trip to take on Purdue in a non-conference contest at 5 PM (CT) in West Lafayette, Ind.

 
* UE women post strong effort to open MVC Championship

With the first of three rounds of the 2022 Missouri Valley Conference Championship completed, Mallory Russell is tied for the lead while the University of Evansville women’s golf team is tied for the third position.

Mallory Russell completed Sunday’s first round at Greenbriar Hills Country Club with a 2-over 73.  Finishing the day with two birdies, Russell is tied with Hannah Bermel of Northern Iowa for the individual lead.  The duo is two strokes in front of a third-place tie.

Alyssa McMinn was second for the Purple Aces and finished the day in a tie for 6th overall.  She completed the opening 18 holes with a 5-over 76.  Two behind her was Allison Enchelmayer.  With four birdies on the day, Enchelmayer tied for the highest total.  Her final score of 78 has her tied for 19th.  Caitlin O’Donnell and Magdalena Borisova carded scores of 82 and are tied for 37th. 

With a team score of 309, UE is right in the thick of the battle.  The Aces are tied with Illinois State for third and are just one behind Missouri State and trail leader Indiana State by five strokes.

On Monday, the teams will play the second out of three championship rounds.  The start time has been pushed back one hour to 9 a.m. CT.

 
* Gray's dominant effort captures series-opening win for Aces

A vintage performance from starting pitcher Shane Gray powered the University of Evansville baseball team to a 6-4 series-opening victory over Missouri State on Friday evening in Springfield, Mo.

Gray tied his career-high, putting in eight innings of work, allowing just three earned runs and striking-out nine in the win. At one point spanning the fourth and fifth innings, Gray recorded strikeouts on four-straight outs.

"Shane flipped a switch there. He dug deep and was able to find multiple pitches in the zone and we got a lead," said Aces head baseball coach Wes Carroll. "We had a big four spot there and he dug deep and threw some really good pitches. I feel like he was really dialed in. Man, he gave us a great effort and everything he had and I couldn't be more proud of his performance."

At the plate, a trio of Aces finished with multi-hit games with Mark Shallenberger, Simon Scherry, and Evan Berkey all recording two hits each.

"Our offense, I feel like, we got a lot of great, quality trips," said Carroll. "Just what we're getting out of the leadoff spot position with Mark Shallenberger. Him getting us out in front in the lead with a big two-run home run, he's really in a special place right now. Offensively, I like where we're at, I think we're clicking in some areas."

What would turn into an impressive outing for Gray started a bit rocky as the Bears put the first two batters on base to start the game, pushing across a run in the bottom half of the first. In the third, Evansville answered in a big way with Shallenberger launching his eighth homer of the season, this one a two-run blast, over the wall in right field to give UE the 2-1 lead.

A fielding error by the Aces allowed the tying run for the Bears to score in the fourth, knotting the contest at two apiece. Gray settled in and showcased his ability during the mid-portion of the game, facing just two above the minimum from the third through fifth innings and allowing just one hit.

The Aces broke through in the sixth with Chase Hug providing the big at-bat. With the bases loaded and one out, Hug battled at the plate, fouling back-to-back two-strike pitches off before lacing a double down the line, clearing the bases and earning a 5-2 lead for UE. Later in the inning, Shallenberger drove in his third run today with an RBI sac fly.

In the ninth and down to their final opportunity, Missouri State pushed for a comeback, loading the bases with just one out. Nate Hardman helped close-out the game, inducing a flyout and groundout around a single Bear run as the Aces captured the 6-4 win.

Evansville and Missouri State close their series with a doubleheader on Saturday beginning with game one at 1 PM in Springfield, Mo.

 
* Softball drops weekend finale against Missouri State

With the score tied at 1-1 in the top of the fifth, Missouri State hit a grand slam that was the turning point in a 7-1 victory over the University of Evansville softball team on Saturday afternoon at Cooper Stadium.

Evansville scored the first run of the game before the Bears scored seven unanswered to take the win.  Highlighting the game for UE was a perfect 3-for-3 day at the plate for Jessica Fehr to go along with a stolen base.  Madison Hunsaker also had a 3-for-3 game to lead MSU.  Bears pitcher Steffany Dickerson threw six innings of 1-run ball on the way to her third win of the series.  Izzy Vetter took the loss, giving up five runs in five frames.

Haley Woolf got the Purple Aces on the board in the bottom of the second.  Jessica Fehr reached on a leadoff single to bring Woolf to the plate.  Her double to right center scored Fehr to give UE a 1-0 lead.  The Bears countered in their half of the third.  Three one-out singles resulted in their first run of the afternoon.  Pitcher Steffany Dickerson executed a successful squeeze play to tie the game.  Izzy Vetter recorded the final two outs to limit the damage.

Things remained knotted at 1-1 until the top of the fifth.  With two outs and the bases loaded, Olivia Krehbiel hit a grand slam to center field to make it a 5-1 game.  UE battled back with a scoring opportunity on the bottom of the fifth.  Mackenzie McFeron singled to load the bases with one out, but back-to-back ground ball outs ended the threat.

Missouri State added two more runs in the seventh to cap off the scoring.

UE returns to the field on Wednesday for a doubleheader at Indiana State.  Game one begins at 2 p.m. ET.

* Women's golf looks to defend MVC Championship

Greenbriar Hills Country Club in Kirkwood, Missouri will be the site of 2022 Missouri Valley Conference Championship with the University of Evansville women’s golf team looking to defend their title from 2021.

Comprised of 54 holes, the championship will feature one round of 18 each day between Sunday, April 17 and Tuesday, April 19.  Par is set for 71 while the yardage checks in at 5,830.  All ten MVC schools will be playing in the tournament.

It was just one year ago when the Purple Aces made their improbable run to the first-ever women’s golf conference championship in program history.  Following the opening two rounds, the Aces led the field by 10 strokes.  With a steady snow falling throughout the final round, Evansville held strong to force a playoff hole against Northern Iowa. 

Only one hole was needed for the Aces to clinch the championship with Sophia Rohleder taking medalist.  Following her graduation, UE brings extensive experience into the 2022 championship with four out of five returning from the 2021 championship run.  Allison Enchelmayer tied for the 12th position last April while Alyssa McMiinn also picked up a top 20 finish, tying for 17th.

Caitlin O’Donnell set the tone for the Purple Aces in last year’s opening round, shooting a 73 to put Evansville in position to hold the double-digit lead following the first two rounds.  Mallory Russell came home in the 32nd position in her first MVC event.  Her biggest contribution came on the playoff hole where she hit the first shot off the tee, which set the Aces up for the playoff win.

This year, Russell holds the low stroke average for the Aces.  She enters the championship with a 78.81 average.  Russell excelled in the fall, tying for 6th at the Briar Ridge Invitational while recording a 77.20 average in the opening months of the season.  Enchelmayer (79.58) and McMinn (79.79) also hold averages under 80 at the completion of the regular season.  Set to make her inaugural championship appearance is freshman Magdalena Borisova. 

Borisova has the second-lowest spring average for UE, sitting at 79.64.  Over her last seven rounds, Borisova has posted a 77.57 average.  Her top finish was a tie for fourth at the Indiana State Invitational.

 
* Marah Wood homers twice in Friday doubleheader

Sophomore Marah Wood blasted two home runs for the University of Evansville softball team in Friday’s doubleheader against Missouri State at Cooper Stadium.  After taking an 8-2 win in the opener, the Bears held on for a 4-1 victory in game two.

Game One – Missouri State 8, UE 2
Marah Wood hit a pair of solo home runs, but three long balls from Missouri State gave them an 8-2 victory.  The Bears opened the scoring in the top half of the second when Annie Mueller hit a 2-run shot to left.  Wood got one of the runs right back in the bottom of the frame, hitting a solo shot to left.

Missouri State used the long ball once again to make it a 3-1 game when Olivia Krehbiel hit a shot to left.  Mueller struck again with a 2-run double in the sixth before the Bears tacked on three more in the seventh.  Wood hit her 7th home run of the season in the bottom of the 7th to make it a final of 8-2.  Steffany Dickerson picked up the win for MSU, allowing one run on three hits in six innings.  Izzy Vetter suffered the loss and fell to 14-8 on the season.

Game Two – Missouri State 4, UE 1
An unearned run opened the scoring for the Bears in the top of the first to open game two.  Another run crossed the plate in the third when a double by Madison Hunsaker scored Daphne Plummer, who tripled to lead off the inning. 

Picking up right where she left off from game one, Marah Wood had the big RBI knock to get UE on the scoreboard.  Her 2-out single in the third brought in Zoe Frossard to make it a 2-1 game.  Frossard reached on a leadoff double.  The Bears countered in the top of the sixth when a McKenzie Vaughan single plated the third run of the contest before an unearned run in the seventh capped off the scoring.

Hannah Hood gave the Aces some life with a leadoff walk in the bottom of the seventh before MSU pitcher Steffany Dickerson recorded the final three outs on the way to her second win of the day.  She tossed the final four innings and gave up two hits.  Sydney Weatherford had a solid start in the circle.  In seven innings, she gave up four runs, two of which were earned.
