PITTSFORD, NY – Following an outstanding weekend for Case Western Reserve University Athletics, four Spartans were honored with University Athletic Association Athlete of the Week honors.

Joey Baum

Baum and English helped lead the football team to a 41-0 shutout at Hiram College on Saturday. The win marked the 37th consecutive regular season victory for the Spartans (6-0) and was the school’s first shutout since the end of the 2008 regular season. Baum, the 12th-rated passer in the nation, completed 15-of-26 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns in just three quarters of play. English recorded five tackles, a sack, and his first career interception.

Dale English

Bell recorded his first career “hat trick” in a key 3-2 victory for men’s soccer versus the University of Chicago (IL) on Sunday. Bell’s third goal in the 87th minute was the game-winner and helped Case improve to 7-4-3 overall and 2-2 in UAA play.

Vinny Bell

Suchy turned in several of her best performances of the year in what turned out to be a historic weekend for the Spartan volleyball team. In four matches, she totaled team-bests with 63 kills and a .357 hitting percentage. Case posted a 3-1 record in UAA Round Robin play and defeated the defending national champion and current number-one team in the nation, Washington University (MO). The team improved to 19-7 overall and 4-3 in UAA play heading into the conference championship tournament on Friday-Saturday, November 6-7, at Case’s Veale Center in Cleveland.

ALLIANCE, Ohio -- Mount Union's volleyball team earned a 3-0 sweep of Ohio Athletic Conference foe Baldwin-Wallace on Tuesday at the McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex, moving itself to the brink of OAC Tournament qualification.

Roni Schroeder (Shelby/Shelby) had 10 kills and three total blocks in the Purple Raiders' 25-10, 25-22, 25-11 decision.

Beaumont alumna

Monica Hupertz (Willoughby Hills/Beaumont) added nine kills, Julie Radigan (Olmsted Falls/Olmsted Falls) made 31 assists and Sarah Dean (Strongsville/Walsh Jesuit) contributed 13 digs to the Mount Union effort.

Mount Union (18-8, 4-2) will return to action on Saturday with a 1 p.m. match at OAC opponent Capital. A Purple Raider win would secure a spot in the OAC Tournament.

 An exciting golf competition, the first Oberlin Prof-Am, was concluded near dusk on Sunday at the Oberlin Golf Club. With two of the matches decided on the final hole and one on the 17th green, the faculty/staff team was fortunate to win 4-0 over four members of the Oberlin College golf team. 

Rob Thompson fell behind Sean Dowgray early in the first match. However, he battled back on the front - culminating in a long birdie putt just off the green that gave him a three-hole lead at the turn. Continuing to ride a hot putter, Thompson won the match with a 15-foot birdie put on the 14th hole and put the first point on the board for the professors.
