* Condolences

The University of Evansville is saddened by the news that John H. Schroeder, a life member of the UE Board of Trustees and longtime friend to the University, passed away on Monday at the age of 90. Visitation will be from 3:00-7:00 p.m. Thursday at Alexander Funeral Home East Chapel, with services at 10:00 a.m. Friday at UE’s Neu Chapel.

Over the last six decades, the life and legacy of John H. Schroeder played an increasingly central role in shaping the University of Evansville. Today, it is impossible to overlook the contributions he has made to our campus. From his work in championing the acquisition of Harlaxton Manor, to his role in comforting and steering a campus devastated by the tragic loss of its basketball team, John H. Schroeder was among the greatest supporters the University of Evansville has ever seen. The University acknowledged his support both by naming a residence hall after John and later naming its business school the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration.

A pioneer in many aspects, Schroeder’s professional career included a leadership role in establishing Evansville as the plastics capital of the country, while at the same time keeping sight of the philanthropic spirit instilled in him at a young age by his father. 

The businessman and civic leader earned his AB from Wabash College in 1942 and his MBA from the Harvard School of Business Administration in 1947.  After graduation he became the founder of three companies: Crescent Plastics Inc., Cresline Plastic Pipe Co. Inc., and Wabash Plastics Inc.

Schroeder’s successful business career eventually led him to serve on the boards of the Evansville Chamber of Commerce; Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science; Welborn Baptist Hospital; Old National Bancorp; Southern Indiana Gas and Electric Co.; and the Society of Plastics Industry.

Schroeder’s relationship with the University of Evansville began in 1955 when he joined the building committee for the Clifford Memorial Library at Evansville College.  The construction of the library was the primary indication of the University’s shift from a smaller, commuter-based college to the fully residential and internationally diverse campus that it is today.  In 1964, Schroeder joined the UE Board of Trustees.  While serving on the board, he was one of the first trustees interested in pursuing the acquisition of Harlaxton College, UE’s campus in Grantham, England.  Schroeder fully supported then-president Wallace B. Graves in attempting to acquire the 100-room Victorian manor and the 100 acres of land surrounding the college.  Schroeder’s leadership was also displayed after the UE plane crash in December 1977 when, as chairman of the Board of Trustees, he helped the school and community to remain strong and rebuild after such a devastating loss.  

As one of the top benefactors in the history of the University of Evansville, it came as no surprise that Schroeder agreed to lead UE’s Widening the Circle capital campaign – a campaign that went on to be one of the University’s most successful fund-raising campaigns to date, and one that has provided the framework for campaigns since.  His personal solicitation of gifts and the philanthropic example he set for other community leaders to follow is still evident at the University today. 

Schroeder’s most recent gift to the University was the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration Building, a state-of-the-art facility that has received national attention and will be instrumental in attracting world-class talent and scholarship to Evansville.

Perhaps most notable, however, was Schroeder’s preference to remain “behind the scenes” with all the projects he was involved in (including those he led).  Often escaping the recognition he deserved, it seems he was never concerned with fame or the applause of others.  In spite of this, few in the Evansville area are better known for their community service.  Over the years, Schroeder served as president of the United Way of Southwestern Indiana, the Vanderburgh County Society for Crippled Children, Goodwill Industries, and Evansville Rotary Club, as well as director for the Evansville Chamber of Commerce and the Evansville Museum of Art, History, and Science. 

John H. Schroeder and the legacy he has left behind will forever be a part of both the city and the University of Evansville.

Athletics

* No. 16 Missouri Takes Two From Aces

The University of Evansville softball team dropped a pair of tough midweek games to No. 16 Missouri tonight at James and Dorothy Cooper Stadium. The Tigers posted a 7-2 victory in game one before winning the night cap by a score of 9-1 in five innings.

Senior Kelci Alsip and sophomore Alicia Betancur both finished the night going 2-for-5 offensively. Junior Amy Gaertner, freshman Niki Rahming and Alsip each doubled at the plate while Betancur and senior Jen Stahlhut tallied home runs.

The Aces (7-27) will resume Missouri  Valley Conference play this weekend, traveling to Terre Haute, Ind., for a three-game series with Indiana State.

Game 1: UE 2, No. 16 Missouri 7
A two-run home run by Nicole Hudson gave Mizzou an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Evansville quickly cut the lead in half as senior Jen Stahlhut blasted her second leadoff home run of the season to in the bottom of the frame. 
Missouri was able to push across one more run in the top of the second before Hudson struck again, sending out another two-run shot to extend the Tigers’ lead to 5-1.

Sophomore Alicia Betancur belted her third career home run in the bottom of the fourth inning to bring the Aces within three at 5-2.

Missouri answered back in the top of the fifth inning, using three hits to push across one run, bringing the score to 6-2. The Tigers added their final run in the top of the seventh inning with a solo home run by pinch hitter Mackenzie Sykes.
Freshman Taylor Perry (0-4) took the loss on the mound for the Aces. Missouri’s Kristin Nottelman improved to 12-1 with ten strikeouts on the day.

Game 2: UE  1, No. 16 Missouri 9
The Tigers opened the nightcap with five runs off four hits in the top of the first inning. Ashley Fleming  opened the game two-run home run before the Tigers used three back-to-back doubles to plate three unearned runs and take the 5-0 lead.

Missouri added to its lead in the top of the second, using two hits and taking advantage of a UE error to plate two more runs. The Tigers scored again in the top of the fifth, plating two runs to push the score to 9-0.

Senior Kelci Alsip cranked a leadoff double to start the bottom of the fifth inning before freshman Niki Rahming followed with a double of her own. Alsip was able to score from second to spoil the shutout and put UE on the board at 9-1. But the Aces were unable to score again as Missouri went on to take the run-rule win in five innings.
Kautz (3-8) was credited with the loss on the mound. Chelsea Thomas got the win for Mizzou, improving to 14-3.


 

* Aces Hold Off SIUE

The University of Evansville baseball team built a 5-0 lead, piloted by the pitching of sophomore Josh Biggs and home runs by senior Cody Fick and junior Trentt Copeland, as the Aces held off SIU Edwardsville for a 5-3 win Wednesday night at Braun Stadium. The victory gives UE its fifth straight and improves the Aces’ record to 17-9 on the year, while the Cougars fell to 10-17.

Biggs (1-0) threw six scoreless innings on the mound to earn his first win of the season, allowing three hits, two walks, while striking out four. The sophomore did not allow a single SIUE player past first base.
Fick led Evansville at the plate with his 3-for-3 performance, including two runs scored and two runs batted in on a home run and two singles.

The Aces jumped onto the scoreboard quickly with two runs in the first inning. Senior Nate Smith and sophomore Eric Stamets led off UE’s initial at-bats with back-to-back doubles, scoring one. Fick singled to left field, plating Stamets to give Evansville a 2-0 head start.

In the second, Copeland belted his first home run of the season and fifth of his career far over the left field wall. Fick copied in the fourth with a leadoff, first pitch homer to left-center to put the Aces up 4-0.

With two outs, senior Jared Baehl doubled, scoring Fick who reached base on a walk for what would be Evansville’s final run of the game.

Sophomore Adam Culiver relieved Biggs in the seventh and looked to get out of the inning just fine with two outs and a runner on first. However, another Cougar reached base on a hit-by-pitch. On what should have been the final out of the inning, Culiver fielded a groundball and threw it over the head of first baseman Ryan Oesterle, plating two on the play. Culiver walked two more before sophomore Jake Naumann came out of the bullpen with bases loaded. Naumann also surrendered a walk, bringing in the third run of the inning, before getting the final out of the side.

Naumann earned the save, throwing the final two innings and preserving the win for the Aces. He allowed one hit and four walks, including working his way out of another two-out bases loaded jam in the eighth.

Travis Felax (3-1) took the loss for the Cougars, throwing five innings and giving up four runs on five hits, a walk, while striking out four.

The Aces look to keep their winning streak alive when they open Missouri Valley Conference play Friday against Southern Illinois. Game one of the three-game series starts at 6 p.m. at Braun Stadium.
