Design a logo for UE’s new Center for Innovation Engineering! This competition is open to all UE students! Cash prize!

The Center for Innovation Engineering (CIE) was founded in the summer of 2011 with the goal of instilling an entrepreneurial mindset in UE engineering students through the transformation of undergraduate engineering education. The CIE will aspire to enhance the skills of graduates of the College of Engineering and Computer Science and to foster direct collaboration with regional business.

CONSIDERATIONS
This will be the visual voice of what the Center for Innovation Engineering is. It must be unique and aesthetically pleasing. Keep it simple.

* UE Theatre Opens Comedy ONCE IN A LIFETIME as Season Finale

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre announces the final production of its 2011–2012 season - George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s Once in a Lifetime, opening at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 13, in Shanklin Theatre.  Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m. on April 14, 19, 20, 21 and at 2:00 p.m. on April 15 and 22.

Once in a Lifetime is a comic extravaganza centered on the demise of the golden age of silent movies and the advent of the even more golden era of “talkies.”  Hilarity ensues as a trio of faltering vaudeville performers embarks upon a foolhardy scheme to pose as experts who train actors unaccustomed to speaking on screen—most of them beautiful with voices that sound like nails on a chalkboard. Opening on Broadway in 1930 to rave reviews, this timeless comedy is imbued with the quintessential wittiness of the Pulitzer Prize-winning duo Kaufman and Hart.  Audiences will howl with laughter as one wacky exploit unfolds into an even more rollicking escapade. Don’t miss this uproarious season finale!

UE Department of Theatre alumnus Wes Grantom guest directs this electric comedy.  Grantom, a 2003 graduate of the department, has worked extensively in regional theatre and on Broadway.  His credits include work at Berkshire Theatre Festival, Roundabout Theatre Company, Asolo Repertory Theatre and Williamstown Theatre Festival.  Additionally, Grantom has worked with fellow department graduates, Mat Smart, Adam Knight and Gretchen Neidert, to create New York-based theatre company Slant Theatre Project.

The design team for Once in a Lifetime includes costume design by senior Austin Pettinger;  lighting design by senior Brandon Bagwell; and sound design by junior Joshua Stallings. 

The cast includes junior Ryan Wesen as George Lewis; senior Elvin P. McRae as Jerry Hyland; freshman Sarah McAfee as May Daniels; senior Sarah Vogt as Susan Walker; senior Toby Brian Onwumere as Herman Glogauer; junior Beccah Dowden as Mrs. Walker; senior Ben Quinn as Lawrence Vail; senior Samantha Aneson as Helen Hobart; senior Cassandra Powell  as Phyllis Fontaine; senior John White as Rudolph Kammerling; and senior Kelsey Carlstedt as Florabel Leigh.

Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $11 for seniors, students and UE faculty. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Tickets may be purchased by calling (812) 488–2031, Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m.

* Photographer on Campus

The Office of Admission will have a photographer on campus for a photo shoot Monday, April 16, and Tuesday, April 17. UE students and faculty have always been very cooperative and accommodating during previous shoots. As a result, many great photos have been taken for UE publications. Kim McDonald will try to notify faculty in advance if photos will be taken in a particular class; however, weather often can force the shoot inside, and it is possible that last minute requests will be made. If faculty members know that they will be giving a test or do not wish to be bothered either of these days, please inform Kim McDonald at ext. 2683 and the classroom will be avoided.

Athletics

* Aces Baseball To Face Shockers For Three

Starting a 12-game home stand, the University of Evansville baseball team welcomes Missouri Valley Conference foe Wichita State to Charles H. Braun Stadium this weekend for a three-game series that begins Friday at 6:00 p.m. The Aces bring a 20-13 overall record and 4-5 mark in the MVC into the clash, while the Shockers are 21-15 on the season and 4-2 in Valley play.

UE’s bullpen has inherited 34 runners this season and allowed just 10 of them to score. Josh Biggs and Jake Naumann have been the most efficient relievers, as Biggs has inherited 13 runners and allowed only two to score. Naumann has taken over 12 base runners, allowing three to come in.
Josh Biggs: 13/2
Jake Naumann: 12/3
Tyler Miller: 2/0
Zach Taylor: 6/4
Sam Johns: 1/1

The Aces are 15-0 this spring when they lead after the seventh inning. UE has given up just five runs in the ninth inning, while scoring 25 runs themselves in the frame – the most of all innings.

Freshman Kyle Pollock and sophomore Jake Mahon enter the weekend riding an eight-game and six-game hitting streak, respectively. The eight straight games marks Pollock’s longest streak of the season. In addition, Pollock has hit in each of the last eight Valley contests. Mahon has also reached base in the last 11 consecutive games, marking UE’s longest current streak.

Wichita State and Evansville lead the Valley in stolen bases and attempts. The Shockers rank first with 59 stolen bases in 82 attempts, followed by the Aces who have swiped 56 in 72 tries.

Freshman Kyle Freeland tossed a gem Sunday afternoon at Abe Martin Field, leading Evansville to a 6-2 win over Southern Illinois in the final game of the three-game series. Freeland (3-3) threw seven innings, allowing one run, four scattered hits, two walks, while striking out four in his third win of the season. The southpaw hurled four perfect frames in the outing, and gave up just two hits out of the infield. In Valley play, Freeland improved his record to 2-1 with a 1.23 earned run average.

Freshman designated hitter Kyle Pollock led Evansville with a .444 batting average and .556 slugging percentage with two doubles on the week, piloting the Aces to wins over SIU Edwardsville and Southern Illinois. Extending his hitting streak to seven games, Pollock recorded three multi-hit games with three runs scored and two runs batted in, going 3-for-4 vs. the Cougars and went 2-for-5 in each of the final two contests at SIU. Pollock also was perfect on the base paths, stealing two bags. The Clinton, Ohio native raised his Valley average to .298.

Faced with their first possible sweep, Evansville bounced back Sunday to top Southern Illinois, 6-2, to hold UE’s longest winless streak to just two games this spring. Evansville is 3-3 in weekend series of three or four games, neither sweeping nor being swept in any of them.

After playing eight straight road games, Evansville returns home to play 12 consecutive contests at Braun Stadium starting this weekend. The Aces own a 12-8 record on the road and 8-4 mark in Evansville.

Evansville logged its 20th win of the season at SIU Sunday in UE’s 32nd game of the season. The Aces are off to their best start since 2007 and an even hotter start than the 2006 team that went on to win the MVC title and three regional games.

Evansville owns a 7-1 record this season on games played on Tuesday or Wednesday. UE is 3-0 on Tuesdays and 4-1 on Wednesdays.

Senior Trentt Copeland enters the weekend with 192 career hits. He needs eight more to become the 24th member of UE’s 200-hit club.

The Aces lead the MVC and rank 13th in the nation with 40 sacrifice bunts this season and also ranks second in the Valley for stolen bases with 56. Tim Bodine leads the league with eight sac bunts while Eric Stamets leads the MVC with 21 swiped bags.

Three active UE pitchers have recorded complete games in their careers, and they all happen to be left-handed. Sophomore Cole Isom has hurled three, including one this season versus Indiana State (3/23). Isom took the tough-luck 2-0 loss, allowing two runs nine hits, a walk, and struck out five. Freshman Kyle Freeland recorded a three-hit complete game shutout at Creighton (4/1) with six strikeouts, while Josh Biggs is UE’s only other hurler who has tossed all nine, being done vs. Saint Louis on April 12th, 2011. He allowed four runs, five hits, a walk, and stuck out six.

Head Coach Wes Carroll recorded his 100th career win versus Indiana State (3/24) in UE’s 3-2 walk-off victory. Carroll has led his squad to above .500 records in each of the last two seasons, going 32-27 in 2010 and 28-25 in 2011, and posted the second-highest victory total by a first-year baseball coach at Evansville with 25 wins in 2009. Carroll, a 2001 Evansville graduate, is in his fourth season at the helm with a 105-95 record.

Kevin Kaczmarski and Jason Hockemeyer co-rank second in the MVC with three triples apiece this season. Kaczmarski recorded one in three consecutive games from 3/18-3/23. Hockemeyer recorded his third in UE’s win at SIUE (4/3) -- a two RBI triple in the sixth inning. Kaczmarski, Hockemeyer, and Trentt Copeland all have three career triples to their name.

Trentt Copeland continues to move up the career doubles list, now with 52 after recording a two-bagger vs. SIUE (4/3) to lead off a three-run sixth inning. Copeland now ranks eighth all-time, tied with Rob Maurer (1986-88). He needs two more to move into seventh, and three more to become sixth.

Leading the Valley and ranking 16th in the nation, sophomore Jake Mahon has been plunked 13 times this year, already surpassing his season total in 2011 (12) that marked a team-high last year. Mahon was hit at SIUE(4/3), representing the first HBP after an eight-game break. In the first 20 games, the sophomore was hit 12 times.

In game 17 of the season at Austin Peay (3/14), freshman Kyle Pollock recorded both his first home run of this career and the first long ball hit by an Ace this year. Trentt Copeland’s solo shot at Creighton (4/1) marked the only other homer on the team this year. Both Copeland and Eric Stamets lead the active players with six home runs each in their careers.

Eric Stamets, who has stolen 21 bases in 24 attempts this season, ranks 10th in the nation for steals. He also currently ranks third in program history with 91 steals (91-112) in just his third year of play. Stamets needs three more to tie Ryan Brownlee (1994-97) in second place. Aaron Pembroke (1995-98) holds UE’s record with 106 career steals.

Evansville returns 12-of-13 pitchers from last season and also adds three newcomers to the staff, including Kyle Freeland, a 35th round pick by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

For the second consecutive year, shortstop Eric Stamets was named to the Missouri Valley Conference preseason all-conference team, voted on by the league’s eight head coaches. Stamets, a junior from Dublin, Ohio, projects to be one of the best shortstops in the nation this year. Last season, Stamets hit .292 with a team-high 51 runs scored and 27 stolen bases. Defensively, he led the Aces with 181 assists and helped the squad to a program-best .977 fielding percentage with a record-low 48 errors as a team. In addition, Stamets turned heads in the summer, playing for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks and was named a Cape Cod League All-Star. Stamets was a consensus Freshman All-American and the MVC Freshman of the Year in 2010.

After this weekend’s series, the Aces host SIU Edwardsville for a midweek non-conference contest Wednesday before welcoming Dayton of the A-10 to Braun Stadium for three next weekend.
