* Olmsted Landscape Renewal

Beginning the week of October 24, a transformation of the exterior landscape areas of Olmsted Hall will take place. Crews have already begun the process, that will include replacement of much of the existing landscape. This upgrade will greatly improve the appearance of the one building all visitors and potential student families frequent, through multiple seasons of color while allowing the beauty of this iconic building to shine.

Project contractors have been advised to yield to all pedestrians while keeping the sidewalks open. The project is anticipated to take approximately two weeks.

Renderings of the front and back door portions of the project are displayed here for all to view. We look forward to seeing the progress and improvement this project brings to Olmsted Hall!

* Three Aces rank in the top ten at Braun Intercollegiate

Mallory Russell, Allison Enchelmayer and Kate Petrova carded scores of 78 to lead the University of Evansville women’s golf team in Monday’s opening round of the Braun Intercollegiate at Oak Meadow Country Club.

UE’s trio rank in a tie for 9th place in the individual standings and their efforts have the Purple Aces in 4th place entering Tuesday’s final round.  Their scores finished at six over par.  Magdalena Borisova wrapped up the day with a 79 and ranks in a tie for 17th place while Carly Frazier scored an 83 and is tied for 35th place.

Four individuals also represented the UE squad.  Alyssa McMinn led that group with an 82 and is tied for 31st.  Sitting in a tie for 41st is Caitlin O’Donnell.  Her opening round finished at 84.  Destynie Sheridan totaled 87 strokes in the first 18 holes while Grace Vandenburg tallied a 103.

Austin Peay holds the team and individual lead entering the final 18.  The Governors’ team score checked in at a 305, which paces UIC by four strokes.  Bellarmine is in third with a 312 while the Aces are fourth with a 313.  Taylor Dedmen of APSU paces the individuals with an even score of 72.  Megan Tang of UIS is in second with a 73.

With the weather in the forecast for Tuesday, the final round has been pushed up one hour to a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

* Men's Soccer welcomes Indiana for in-state showdown on Tuesday night

A pair of teams with a long history together meet on Tuesday night at 6 PM when the University of Evansville men's soccer team hosts the Indiana Hoosiers for a non-conference showdown at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville.

The 40th all-time meeting between the two storied programs sees Evansville in search of its first win over the Hoosiers since Nov. 25, 1990 in the NCAA Tournament that sent the Aces to their second Final Four in program history. The Bloomington-based side enters Tuesday midweek matchup with a 7-3-4 overall record, but has only lost to teams who were ranked first, second, and 22nd nationally at the time of competition. Evansville's three losses came to similar opponents with the Aces falling to current No. 9 Xavier, No. 11 Louisville, and No. 19 Missouri State.

Tuesday night is Boy Scout Night at Arad McCutchan Stadium with local Boy Scout troops attending the match and presenting the colors for the National Anthem. Fans will also be treated to a $5.50 meal deal at the concession stand, featuring a hot dog, drink, and chips.

Evansville jumped a spot to eighth in the United Soccer Coaches' West Region rankings following a 3-0 dismantling of regionally-ranked Drake on Sunday afternoon. Freshman Nacho Diaz found the net twice more in the win, pushing his season total to nine goals, the most in the Missouri Valley Conference and 12th-most in the nation. By himself, Diaz has outscored three NCAA Division I teams, with Columbia having scored just seven times in 12 games this season and Hartford and North Florida only finding the back of the net six times in 12 matches in 2022.

In goal, graduate Alex Vidizzoni has been the unsung hero of the Aces season, racking-up five shutouts. Vidizzoni's five clean sheets place him second in The Valley in the category and 30th in the nation all the while earning him a spot in the top 25 in the nation with a .733 goals-against average. If the season ended today, Vidizzoni's goals-against average would rank as the seventh-best in UE history.

Despite Tuesday's contest being a non-conference clash, the Aces eyes are still squarely focused on conference play. With two MVC contests remaining, Evansville sits in third with 11 points, just four behind conference-leader Missouri State and one back of second-place Drake, while maintaining a two-point advantage over Belmont with a game in hand. The Valley's regular season champion and top seed in the MVC Championship gets a first round bye, while seeds 2, 3 and 4 will host a first-round matchup.
