* UE Named a Top 10 Midwest University by U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News & World Report has again named the University of Evansville one of the top 10 regional universities in the Midwest – and one of the region’s best values – in its annual Best Colleges rankings.

This year, UE held steady at ninth place in the “Best Regional Universities: Midwest” category, which ranks approximately 150 universities in 12 states.  UE also maintained its #3 position on the list of “Great Schools at Great Prices” in the Midwest, and was named an “A-Plus School for B Students” among Midwest regional universities. This unranked list features schools “where non-superstars have a decent shot at being accepted and thriving – where spirit and hard work could make all the difference in admissions offices,” according to U.S. News & World Report.

“While we know that numbers alone can’t capture the full University of Evansville experience, we’re pleased to maintain our stature as one of the Midwest’s top universities,” said President Thomas A. Kazee. “Particularly noteworthy is our ‘Great Schools at Great Prices’ recognition. Our commitment to offering a high-quality education at an affordable price is evident in our recent announcement of ‘The Big Freeze.’”

“Under this initiative, current students and members of the incoming class of 2013 will see no tuition increases during their four years of undergraduate study at UE,” Kazee added. “Our U.S. News & World Report rankings further demonstrate that UE is a smart investment – a place where motivated students will thrive in a challenging yet supportive academic community.”

The rankings are based on academic quality, student graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, and alumni giving. They include 1,600 colleges and universities nationwide.

The Best Colleges rankings are available online today at USNews.com, and will be published in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2013 edition, on newsstands September 18.

* Belmont Earns 3-2 Win over UE Volleyball Team

In an offensive clinic, Ashley Ring notched a career-high 28 kills, but Belmont came away with a 3-2 win over the University of Evansville volleyball team on Tuesday night at the Carson Center.Ring tallied an impressive 28 kills, just four short of the UE single-match record of 32.  Hannah Wilson notched 14 kills while Lauren Seyller tallied 12.  Leading the way for Belmont was Scarlet Gable, who notched 22 kills as Jen Myer tallied 16.  With the win, the Bruins moved to 3-7 while the loss dropped UE to 3-8.

It was Evansville who showed some fight early on, rallying late to take the win in the opening set.  Belmont had a pair of errors as UE jumped out to an 8-5 advantage.  The Bruins found their groove as Jocelyn Youngdahl notched two of her five kills in the set to help the Bruins rally to take an 11-10 lead.

Belmont added to its lead, going up by a pair (19-17), forcing UE to take a time out.  The Aces found some magic in the break as they finished the set on an 8-3 run to take the 25-22 win.

In the second frame, Belmont was able to hold off a late UE rally to tie up the match.  The Bruins opened up an early 10-7 advantage before an Ashley Ring kill got UE back within a tally at 11-10.  The Bruins bounced right back, extending their lead back up to five points at 17-12 before the Aces took advantage of two BU errors to cut the gap to 19-17.

At that point, Belmont regrouped and took advantage of a pair of service aces to finish the match on a 6-1 stretch to tie the match up at 1-1.

A back-and-forth battle ensued in the third stanza before a late rally gave UE a 2-1 edge on the night.  Belmont held the lead early on, jumping out to a 5-1 advantage.  Evansville battled back throughout most of the set before a Ring kill made it a 17-16 game in favor of the Bruins.

Belmont made their way back as a Madison Croft kill seemed to give BU a decisive 24-20 lead, but Evansville showed its heart.  Ring led the way once again, notching three kills as UE scored five-consecutive points to take their first lead of the set.  They would eventually grab a 2-1 lead in the match as Lauren Seyller recorded a kill to finish off the set.

In the fourth game, Belmont led throughout and overcame yet another UE rally to knot the match up at two games apiece.  An ace and two UE errors helped the Bruins get out of the gate with a 4-1 lead before stretching that to seven points, 15-8.    As was the case all night, the Purple Aces rallied back, going on a 10-5 run to get within a pair at 20-18.  Following a timeout, Belmont quickly regrouped to take a 25-22 win on a Jen Myer kill.

Looking to keep their momentum going, the Bruins scored four out of the first five points once again before holding off another UE rally.  Down 14-12, a Seyller kill coupled with a Bruin error helped the Aces tie the set up at 14-14.  Belmont was not phased by the UE rally as they came on late to take the match with a 17-15 victory.

This weekend, Valley play begins for the Aces as Illinois State comes to town on Friday at 7 p.m. before Indiana State makes its way to the Carson Center for a 5 p.m. match on Saturday.
 

* Aces, Redhawks Play to Scoreless Draw

The University of Evansville women’s soccer team recorded its second shutout of the season and freshman goalkeeper Simone Busby notched the first clean sheet of her career, as the Aces and host Southeast Missouri State played to a 0-0 draw Tuesday night at Houck Stadium in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Busby made numerous spectacular saves, including one in the final five minutes of the match to keep the Redhawks off the scoreboard and preserve the tie for the UE defense.  The Chattanooga, Tenn., native made a career-high six saves and played all 110 minutes in net for the Aces.

Southeast Missouri State fired six shots to Evansville’s three in the opening 45 minutes, with two being on goal.  Stephanie Thompson recorded UE’s only shot on goal in the first half just over five minutes after the opening whistle.  Despite being outshot in the half, the Aces earned three corner kicks to SEMO’s one.

SEMO’s offense tested Busby and the Evansville defense even more in the second half, as the Redhawks got off nine shots and put three of them on target.  UE got off five shots in the second period, forcing SEMO keeper Renee Kertz to make three saves.

Extra time was needed after neither side found the back of the net in regulation.  Evansville’s Kayla Smith recorded the only shot of the first extra period, but it was off target and the two sides headed into a second extra period.

The Redhawk defense held the Aces without a shot over the final 10 minutes of the match, taking three on the offensive side of the ball and forcing Busby to make a diving save with just over five minutes to go to keep the score knotted at 0-0.

Thompson led the Purple Aces offensively with five shots, including three on goal.  Smith tallied three shots and put one on frame, while Allie Arguello recorded the other shot for UE.

Evansville will return to the pitch Saturday, Sept. 15, when it hosts Xavier at Arad McCutchan Stadium.  The contest will serve as a final tune-up for the Aces before they open conference play against Illinois State on Sept. 23.
 

* Kelby Jenkins Named MVC Women's Cross Country Athlete of the Week

With a pair of victories under her belt, junior Kelby Jenkins picked up another honor on Tuesday as she was named the Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week.Jenkins has gotten off to a blazing start in 2012, winning the UE Mid-America Opener prior to taking top honors in last week’s EIU Walt Crawford Open.  She picked up the win at EIU with a time of 17:56.00 in the 5K race, just the second sub-18 minute five kilometer run in UE history.

She bested the competition by eight seconds on Friday and also faced other battles along the way.  Due to severe weather, the men’s and women’s races were run at the same time.  Jenkins came across slower runners from the men’s side before battling a torrential downpour near the end of the event.

With the honor, Jenkins becomes the second UE runner to garner MVC honors in just the second week of the season.  Last week, senior Cody Stein took MVC Men’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week honors following a fourth place finish at the UE Mid-America Opener.

Jenkins will look to make it 3-0 on Friday as the Aces travel to the Indiana Intercollegiate.  The race is set for 2:30 p.m. CT in Terre Haute.

* Men's Soccer Garners National Attention

In addition to appearing on the front page of the men’s soccer section on TopDrawerSoccer.com and being mentioned as a “Story to Monitor” by J.R. Eskilson, the University of Evansville men’s soccer team received votes in three different national polls this week.

The Purple Aces received 13 votes this week in the NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division I Men’s Poll this week, after receiving only six one week ago.  Despite improving to 4-0-0 over the weekend, UE dropped a spot to seventh in the NSCAA Midwest Regional Poll.  Missouri Valley Conference member Creighton tops the poll, while SIU Edwardsville ranks fourth.  Valley schools Missouri State, Bradley and Central Arkansas ranked eighth, ninth and tied for tenth, respectively.

Evansville tallied votes in two other national polls, as the Aces garnered nine votes in the SoccerTimes.com  College Coaches Poll and also received votes in the College Soccer News Top 30 National Poll.

Prior to this weekend’s win over Cincinnati at the ProRehab Aces Soccer Classic, UE was mentioned by Eskilson as a team to monitor after the Aces’ early season success.  Evansville will look to keep its record unblemished this weekend when it travels to St. Louis, Mo., for a matchup with the Billikens Saturday evening at 7 p.m.
