Profs to take in Golf Event


Oberlin, Ohio – The Oberlin College team of professors defeated the Oberlin College golf team 5-1 in the annual match play Prof-AM event on Saturday afternoon at the Oberlin Golf Club.

The lone point for the Yeomen was earned by freshman Nathan Gonzales who won a tightly contested match 2 & 1 over acting Profs captain Rob Thompson. Thompson looked to make a late push, closing the gap with birdies on holes 13 and 14, but after trading wins on 15 & 16 Gonzales was able to close out the match with a par on 17.

Jacob Panka was matched against Tim Weiss, the profs lowest handicap golfer, who plays to a seven. Weiss did not disappoint as he displayed his talents throughout the round en route to winning a point for the Profs.

Jeff Witmer won his match against Oberlin rookie Zach Boozer. Witmer seemed to hit every fairway with his machine-like play to go along with his excellent short game.

Roland Baumann, who carded an 84 found himself dormie, being up four with four holes to play after hole number 14, and went on to win a full point for the Profs. Baumann had some nice things to say about playing competitor Chris "Critter" Stott.

Zach Mathes vs Bill Barlow was a good match that ended with Barlow earning a full point by turning back Mathes’ comeback bid.

The final Prof point was won by Jordan Suter as he defeated Head Coach Mitch Gillam, who was representing the team, 1-up. The match took many twists and turns, but a clutch putt by Suter on hole 17 was the difference in the match.

The day concluded with the team and professors enjoying a meal together at the club.

Spartan Women’s Soccer Cracks Top 25 for First Time in Program History


KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The outstanding start for the Case Western Reserve University women's soccer team has caught the attention of the nation as the Spartans were voted No. 22 in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Top 25 poll that was released this afternoon. This marks the first time in program history that the team has been voted to the Top 25.

"Earning a Top-25 ranking is a great accomplishment and a great reflection on the hard work put in by all of the women in our program," said fifth-year Head Coach Tiffany Crooks. "We're proud to be recognized for our accomplishments, but, we still have much more that we want to accomplish. Our journey is far from complete."

The Spartans, also ranked third in the NSCAA Great Lakes Region, are 9-1-2 overall and unbeaten in seven-straight matches (6-0-1). The team recently swept the University Athletic Association Player of the Week awards with senior goalkeeper Anna Kennedy (Evanston, Ill./Evanston Township) and sophomore forward Leah Levey (Columbus, Ohio/Bexley) being named Defensive and Offensive Players of the Week, respectively.

Case, one of four UAA schools ranked in the Top 25, has outscored the opposition 21-6 in 12 matches this season with seven shutouts. With six regular season matches remaining on the schedule, the Spartans are three wins and three shutouts shy of tying the 1991 squad (12-6 overall) for the most in school history. 

Junior midfielder Kendra Simmons (Medina, Ohio/Walsh Jesuit) currently leads the squad with 15 points on six goals and three assists. Simmons has a UAA-best five game-winners -- also good for fifth in the nation. Levey is second with eight points on two goals and a team-high four assists. Senior Ana Arruda (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor Pioneer), junior Devyn Lee (Pennsylvania Furnace, Pa./State College) and sophomore Rachel Bourque (Newton, N.H./Central Catholic) have all contributed five points on two goals and an assist.

  
Mentor's Vaci (L), Westlake's Goede (R)

Kennedy and the Spartan defense have been lights out with a 0.47 goals against average. The senior goalkeeper has 49 saves in 1,114 minutes and ranks 12th in Division III with a .907 save percentage. The veteran backline in front of Kennedy consisting of seniors Kristina Vaci (Mentor, Ohio/Mentor) and Laura Gabster (Mount Laurel, N.J./Bishop Eustace) and junior Maeve Goede (Westlake, Ohio/Westlake) have held opponents to just 52 shots on goal.

The Spartans are back in action with a Top-25 showdown versus UAA-rival and No. 6 Emory University (Ga.) on Friday, October 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Case Field.

Yeowomen Fall at Home to OWU

Oberlin, Ohio – Coming off a big win against Kenyon Sunday, the Oberlin College women’s soccer team had somewhat of a letdown on Tuesday night, falling to the visiting Bishops of Ohio Wesleyan 4-0.

While the final score may not indicate it, the game was closely contested as both teams possessed the ball evenly throughout the contest. OWU finish with a slight 17-15 edge it total shots, including a 9-7 margin in shots on goal. The Bishops also triggered three corner kicks compared to Oberlin’s one.


For OWU (8-3-2, 3-0-0 NCAC) it was Jessie Huschart who was the star as she scored the game’s first goal and assisted on two others. Makinzie Krebsbach also netted two goals for the victors. All four of their scores went into the top half of the goal and over the head of Oberlin goalie Kate Frost.

Trailing 2-0 at the half, the Yeowomen continued to fight and had some promising scoring opportunities over the final 45 minutes of play. The first coming just moments into the second half when Hannah Combe had a one-on-one against OWU keeper Hannah Zacharias, but she came charging out to make the save.
