Hamilton and Snode
Baldwin-Wallace Senior Defensive End Derron Hamilton (Euclid) Named OAC Football Defensive Player-of-the-Week; Mount Union’s Mary Snode (Marlington) named OAC Golf S/A of the Week for the second straight week

Baldwin-Wallace College senior defensive end Derron Hamilton (Euclid) has been named as the Ohio Athletic Conference Football Defensive Player-of-the-Week for his performance during the Yellow Jackets 17-7 win against Marietta College  on Saturday, October 1, 2011.  This is the first time in his career that he has earned the weekly honor.

Hamilton had a team-high 11 tackles and 3.5 quarterback sacks as the B-W defense limited Marietta to 151 yards of total offense in a 17-7 win.  He had 4.5 total tackles for losses of 21 yards.  In the last two games, Hamilton now has seven QB sacks for minus 40 yards for the 3-1 Yellow Jackets. Overall, he has 24 tackles, including 11 tackles for loss and 8.5 QB sacks.  Hamilton is 4.5 sacks shy of B-W’s school-record of 13.

Also from the Greater Cleveland corner of the OAC, Mount Union senior Mary Snode (Alliance/Marlington) was named the Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Golfer of the Week for the second consecutive week after winning a pair of tournaments over the weekend.

Snode claimed medalist honors with an 81 at the Otterbein Classic Saturday at New Albany Links in New Albany, Ohio. She won the event by five strokes in leading the Purple Raiders to a third place finish in the seven team field.

Sunday was a new day and new course, but the same result for Snode. She again claimed medalist honors with an 80 at the Capital Fall Invitational at Foxfire Golf Club in Lockbourne, Ohio. This time, she won the event by eight strokes as the Purple Raiders finished in first place, nine shots ahead of second place Otterbein.

Snode has won all three tournaments the Purple Raiders have competed in this season, giving her ten medalist honors for her career.

Defensive Player of the Week:  Kent State LB C.J. Malauulu

 

Junior linebacker C.J. Malauulu (Oceanside, Calif.) had a game- and career-high 12 tackles at Ohio as the Flashes held the Bobcats to a season-low 17 points in a 17-10 loss. 


He also added 3.0 tackles for loss, a sack and a pass break-up. Malauulu also forced a fumble in the second quarter on Ohio's 25 that led to Kent State's only touchdown of the day.

LEC Teaming Up and Taking Breast Cancer by Storm in October

PAINESVILLE, OHIO – With the month of October designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Lake Erie College Department of Athletics will look to raise awareness and funds for cancer research at home contests throughout the month with its annual “Taking Breast Cancer by Storm” campaign.

Fans are encouraged to wear pink to games and will have the opportunity to buy limited edition “Taking Breast Cancer by Storm” t-shirts and wristbands at various home events between Oct. 7-16 as well as make donations to help the effort. All proceeds from the sales and all donations will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.


The Storm volleyball, football, soccer, cross country and women’s tennis teams will all be participating in the cause. The volleyball, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s tennis teams will wear special “Taking Breast Cancer by Storm” t-shirts during warm-ups of all their home games during that two week span, while the cross country team will wear their warm-up tops at the 2011 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Championships on Oct. 22 at Ashland University.

The Lake Erie football team will wear special pink ribbon decals on their helmets for their Oct. 15 game at home against Grand Valley State University under the lights at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium.

“This is a great way for our student-athletes, coaches, staff, fans and the surrounding community to get involved in breast cancer awareness and show our support for a great cause,” said Lake Erie Assistant Athletic Director for Operations and Student Development and Senior Woman Administrator Lisa Liotta.

Local sporting goods retailer Sports-n-Sports is once again sponsoring the “Taking Breast Cancer by Storm” effort by providing the warm-up apparel for the teams.

In a more limited campaign the previous two years, “Taking Breast Cancer by Storm” has donated nearly $3,000 to breast cancer research.

No. 3 ranked OWU tops Oberlin Soccer

Oberlin, Ohio – The Oberlin College men’s soccer team scored three second-half goals, but unfortunately the high-powered Bishops had already posted six scores on the board as they defeated the Yeomen 6-3 on Tuesday night at Fred Shults Field.

 


Two of Oberlin’s goals came courtesy of Oliver Miller-Farrell, and sandwiched in-between them was a finish from Matt Capozzi with an assist coming from Aki Gormezano.

The Bishops, who entered the match as the top ranked team in the Great Lakes Region and third in the nation in the d3soccer.com Top 25 Poll, scored early two goals within the first 17:30 to take control of the game. A backbreaking finish by Tyler Bryant with just three second left on the first-half clock made it a 3-0 game at the break.

OWU tacked on another tally just moments into the second half and two more within 30 seconds in the 57th minute.

After the final Bishops goal, the Yeomen said enough is enough as Miller-Farrell went right down the field and buried one in the cage with just four seconds ticking off of the clock. 

In the 60th minute, a nice through ball from Gormezano on the far side of the field to the inside of the box set up Capozzi for his second score of the season.

Miller-Farrell later added a chip shot from the center of the field over the keeper’s head for his team-leading fifth goal of the season. It was also the first time in his career he has scored two goals in a game. The New York City native could have had a hat trick, but his bending shot from the nearside with four minutes left in the first half hit off the far crossbar.

The Bishops triggered 19 shots with 10 of those coming on goal. The Yeomen countered with 12 shots, with six of those on frame.  OWU had a slight 7-6 edge on corners.

Muskies trap Oberlin women

Concord, Ohio- The Oberlin College women's soccer team could not hold off an overtime push by the Muskingum University Muskies on Tuesday. The Muskies were able to score the winning goal just 1:12 into the overtime period.

After a first half Muskingum goal, freshman Abbey Weiss put a shot in the back net in the 43rd minute. Her goal was unassisted. The goal by Weiss tied the score at one and thats where it would stand at the half.

In the second half, both teams turned up the defensive intensity as no goals were scored. Both the Yeowomen, and the Muskies, only had three shots on goal during the second half. Goalkeeper Kate Frost saved all three shots, and those would prove to be her only saves of the game.

Maddy Lugli/Magnificat exemplify the true role of the Student/Athlete; Blue Streaks send six tennis S/As to districts; Senior Lugli opts out of courts opportunity for more classroom focus; Westlake sending five gals; Mostardi becomes first district qualifier for Avon

OBERLIN – Evidenced by what has transpired here this week in the big-school tennis tournament, Magnificat High School could once again be held as the model school when it comes to best exemplifying both the antecedent and subsequent of the “Student/Athlete” concept.

Blue Streak Senior Tennis S/A Maddy Lugli could be the prime consultant to other high schools when it comes to tackling a situation of priorities when it comes to studies and athletics.

 Lugli

Lugli, who takes five Advance Placement courses at Mags, decided to forgo her chance to re-qualify to districts this season and a possible subsequent trip to states in two weeks, so that she could focus on her studies and achieve her dream of attending the University of Notre Dame in the fall. Lugli was there to support her doubles teammates Monday, but decided to yield her singles spot to Sarah Patrick, who has been in and out of the varsity starting lineup all season.

Patrick

Patrick responded in kind in the same way that Lugli did last fall when taking over on last moment’s notice due to inner team turmoil that was surfacing at the time. She responded with a 6-2, 7-5 win over Westlake’s Melissa Djohan and a 6-0, 6-2 triumph over Normandy’s Hannah Ullman before getting eliminated by Avon’s Carmela Mostardi, 6-1, 6-4 in the quarterfinals, the deciding match to qualify for districts.

Witt

While Patrick made a nice run before falling, overall it was another great day for the Blue Streaks. No. 1 seed Emily Witt made it to districts with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Normandy’s Anastasiya Koval in the quarters.

Moreover, Blue Streak freshman S/A Lauren O’Malley when she served early walking papers to No. 4 seed Erin Hrivnak, 6-1, 6-0 in their quarterfinal match.

Hrivnak, who qualified to districts last year as half of a doubles team, had played O’Malley three previous times in USTA and other private play in the past and won each time, but the fourth time turned out to be the charm for the 14-year-old O’Malley.

O’Malley’s younger brother passed up football practice so that he could be there to cheer on his sister in these important matches.

Thus, Magnificat will be sending six of its seven starters to districts, which begin next Thursday here at The College.

Golick

Westlake will be sending five S/As to districts as defending sectionals champ Lauren Golick joined her four doubles teammates in qualifying to districts by making it all the way through to the quarterfinals without giving up a single point in three matches.

She ousted Elyria’s Angela Rodriguez by her sectional trademark score of 6-0, 6-0 in the quarters.

The Blue Streaks and Demons will also probably play in the regional semifinals of the state team tournament next Monday, but Westlake has to get by Canfield this weekend first in the regional quarters.

Mostardi

Mostardi’s win over Patrick was a historic one in that she becomes the first female singles player in Avon High School to ever qualify for districts in Division I. Two years ago she made it in doubles in Division II.

The four singles players and four doubles teams will square off Friday after school in the semis for the purposes of seeding for the districts. None of the 12 gals had to opt out because of Friday’s holiday. The finals are also slated for Friday  later in the evening on the Don Hunsinger Courts here in The College’s athletic complex.
