QUICK TAKES – WIDE WORLD STYLE

Drovers Are Doin’ It For Themselves – The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma Drovers men’s and women’s soccer teams registered impressive wins over the Emmanuel College Saints. The 15th-ranked Drover men won by a score of 4-nil and the women won by a score of 5-nil. Drover sports have been on such a roll I understand people have begun to say “Drover Hat” and “Drover Boots” instead of Cowboy Hat and Cowboy Boots, and not just in Oklahoma!

Generally Great Student-Athletes – 6 Washington and Lee Generals players have been named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors Academic All-State Team. The honorees, with my own typically odd nicknames accompanying their real names, are as follows: Ben “Benny Stretch” Goetsch, basketball and track and field giant; Jenna “Aqua Woman” Worsham, swimming superheroine; “Gridiron” Greg Kurkis, football PhD; “Empress” Emmy Mathews, Lacrosse and Field Hockey royalty; Becca “The Wrecka” Bolton, basketball diva and Tamara “Rhiannon” Morse, riding team.  

Diplomats Top Crusaders In Field Hockey – The Franklin and Marshall Diplomats field hockey team won an exciting game over the Alvernia Crusaders (not to be confused with the Alverno Inferno) 3-2. Becky Willert tied the game up at 1 apiece after the Crusaders jumped off to an early lead. The Diplomats then went up 2-1 on a goal from Allison McLaren. Alvernia knotted the game up at 2 all before Franklin and Marshall’s Eileen O’Reilly scored the game-winner for the Diplomats barely a minute later. F&M will be in action again Sunday against the Eastern Mennonite Royals.

The Association’s Greatest Hits – For newcomers to my blog I’ll point out that I refer to the Mid-States Football Association as “The Association”, like Jim Rome does with the NBA. Anyway, The Association’s MidEast League has bestowed Player Of The Week honors on 2 Saint Xavier Cougars. Defensive Tackle Ben “The Touz” Touzinsky  was named Defensive Player Of The Week with 3 tackles, half a sack and a crucial interception against the Bethel (TN) Wildcats. Placekicker Tom “Tommy The Linchpin” Lynch (who is on the Mitchell Award  watch list but was oddly left off of the Gallano and Mistretta Awards Watch Lists – bad movie fans will get it) was named Special Teams Player Of The Week for his performance against the Saint Francis (IL) Fighting Saints in which he was 7 of 7 on extra point attempts and had a career-long 47 yard field goal. This week the Cougars host the Trinity International Trojans.   

MVC Vikings Student-Athletes Are Anything But Hacks – The Missouri Valley College Vikings had 3 of their student-athletes honored as HAAC (or Heart of America Athletic Confernce) Players Of The Week. The 3 are: Ryan Buster, “The QB Buster” as I call him, who was named football’s Defensive Player Of The Week with 9 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks in the Vikings’ win over the Baker Wildcats. The QB Buster is a Criminal Justice Major; Chris “The Punting Czar” Heale, HAAC football’s Special Teams Player Of the Week, who had 6 punts for 283 yards in that same game. The Czar majors in Exercise Science; Juliana Castro,  “The Unstoppable JC” herself, was named HAAC Women’s Soccer Offensive Player Of The Week. The Unstoppable JC AVERAGED 2 1/2 goals per game last week (more than some entire teams managed) and has scored 7 goals total in the first 3 games of the season. JC’s major is undeclared. She’s been too busy scoring goals to decide.

Sioux Falls Women’s Golf Puts Their Morningside Up! – The USF women’s golf team placed 3rd out of 10 teams at the Morningside Invitational today in Sioux City, IA. The ladies had a team score of 366, just 12 strokes behind the runners up, the Midland Lutheran Warriors and 18 strokes back from the winners, the Dakota Wesleyan Tigers. As for individual scores Allison “The Diabolical Dr Z” Zeller placed 2nd overall with 82 strokes over 18 holes (I have coworkers who would have a stroke if they ever shot as well as 82), Kali “K-Gott” Gottsleben shot a 91, “Dangerous” Davee Johnson shot 92 and Jordon “The Razor” Wilkinson had a 101.
