      Diaz and Steinbach each win opening qualifying match


      Tulsa, Okla. – The fall tennis season has officially begun, as the 2014-15 Buckeye men’s team began competition in Tulsa, Okla., at the Saint Francis Health Systems ITA All-American Championships.


      On Saturday, freshman Mikael Torpegaard, along with redshirt freshmen Matt Mendez and Riley Reist, kicked off the season in pre-qualifying singles action. Reist fell in the first round after dropping a third set tiebreaker to Nate Lammons of SMU. Mendez was dominant in his opening round, besting Hou-en Chen of Weber State, 6-1, 6-1. He followed by a straight set victory over Carlos Bautista of host Tulsa, 7-6(8), 6-3 in the second before falling to Tomas Stillman of UTSA in the third round.


      Torpegaard was the standout for the Buckeyes in pre-qualifying, winning his first three matches, two of which were third set triumphs. He dropped the first set of the year against Gabriel Sciacca Dias of Troy but then won the next two set 6-3, 7-6(4). His second match on Saturday was a little as he knocked-off Parker McGuiness of Utah 7-5, 6-1.


      A 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over 29th seeded Mate Cultura of Mississippi State propelled Torpegaard to the fourth and final round of the pre-qualifying stage, where he fell in straight sets to Michael Tenzer of Wisconsin-Green Bay 6-7, 4-6.


      Redshirt-junior Chris Diaz kicked off the action in the qualifying round on Monday for the Buckeyes with a straight set 6-3, 6-1 victory over Tam Trinh of LSU. He moves on to face the 7-seed Jakob Sude of Oklahoma State Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. ET.


      Sophomore Ralf Steinbach, the number 13 seed in the tournament, followed Diaz with a hard fought three set victory over Alex Arovin of Tennessee Tech. Steinbach will take the court tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. ET against Dennis Mkrtchian of fellow powerhouse UCLA.


      Seniors Kevin Metka and Hunter Callahan both fell in their opening match in qualifying singles. Metka took the opening set from Thai-Son Kwiatkowski of Virginia, but dropped the next two. Callahan fell in straight sets to Ben Donovan of Cal Poly. Sophomore Herkko Pollanen also couldn’t make it out of the first round, falling to the number 14 seed Dusty Boyer of Nebraska in straight sets. All three will seek redemption in doubles, as Metka teams up with Steinbach in the main draw, while Callahan and Diaz will join Pollanen and Torpegaard in qualifying doubles. Qualifying doubles begins Tuesday afternoon.

      Volleyball Sweeps Washington, Kean

      Posted: 27 Sep 2014 03:24 PM PDT


      GETTYSBURG, Pa.  – An extra hour of prep time must have been a good thing for the Gettysburg College volleyball team as the Bullets knocked off both Washington College and Kean University in three sets inside Bream Gym on Saturday.
      The start time of each of Saturday's matches was pushed back as Washington College's bus broke down on the way to Gettysburg. Once the Shorewomen arrived, they were quickly welcomed to a strong Gettysburg (13-5, 2-0 CC) attack as the hosts hit .323 on the way to a 25-15 win in the opening frame. The Bullets took set two by the same score and appeared on the verge of an easy Centennial Conference victory.
      Washington (10-5, 0-2 CC) rallied from an eight-point deficit to tie the third set 20-20 following a kill by Hannah Spohn. Gettysburg would have match point in its grasp three times, but the Shorewomen rallied. Tied at 25, the visitors served the ball into the net and the Bullets capped the win with an emphatic block by freshman Cara Stine (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) and sophomore Laura Bergin (Charlottesville, Va./Western Albemarle) to win 27-25.
      Bergin finished with a match-high 14 kills and nine digs. Freshman Stephanie Blair (Chester, N.J./West Morris Mendham) seemed to be everywhere on the court as she tallied four kills, 27 assists, and a season-high 21 digs. Junior Hannah Dallman (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) totaled six kills and three aces, while Stine finished with five kills and six blocks, including three of the solo variety. Junior Hannah Bentz (Shrewsbury, P./Susquehannock) put up 16 digs.
      Kristin Lee posted seven kills and 18 digs, while Jess Daunoras added seven kills and four blocks for Washington.
      Gettysburg received another long respite as Kean (6-10) narrowly missed taking down Washington in five sets. The Cougars carried that momentum into the early stages of their match with the Bullets. Kean led the majority of the opening set before a five-point run by the hosts made it 18-16. Gettysburg would go on to win the set 25-23 on a perfectly-placed push by Blair down the right line.
      Gettysburg led from nearly start-to-finish in a 25-18 decision in the second frame, but Kean took advantage of several errors to jump out a 6-0 lead in the third set. The Bullets recovered quickly with a 12-3 run to take the lead for good on the way to a 25-19 win.
      Bergin and Dallman each finished with seven kills, while Stine posted six kills and five blocks. Blair totaled 25 assists and nine digs and Bentz put up 16 digs.
      Jen Espinal led Kean with a dozen kills and she put up 19 digs, while Elizabeth DeGroot recorded 23 digs.
      Gettysburg returns to action next Saturday, Oct. 4, with a tri-match at Haverford College. The Bullets face the host Fords at noon before battling Baruch College at 2 p.m.

      Men’s Soccer Ties No. 21 Muhlenberg, 1-1

      Posted: 27 Sep 2014 04:59 PM PDT


      GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Senior Kyle Franks (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) scored in the 57th minute and it held up as the game-tying goal as the Gettysburg College men's soccer team tied 21st-ranked Muhlenberg College 1-1 in a Centennial Conference (CC) match-up Saturday afternoon at Clark Field.
      The Bullets (7-1-1, 1-0-1 CC) outshot the Mules 13-8 and had a potential game-winning header by sophomore Jordy Steelman (Newburypost, Mass./Newburypost) saved in the 110th minute.
      Muhlenberg (6-0-2, 1-0-1 CC), which remained undefeated, received four saves from Danny Pinto.
      Gettysburg has now posted the team's best record through nine matches since the 2002 squad opened 7-0-2.
      The Bullets outshot the Mules 6-2 in the opening half and fired off the game's first two shots before Travis Wantchekon put the Mules on top with a goal in the ninth minute, bouncing a shot from the left inside the right post.
      Pinto made two saves for Muhlenberg in the opening half and the Mules carried a 1-0 lead into the intermission. The match was delayed approximately 20 minutes at the end of the period when Gettysburg goalie Peter Como (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) sustained an injury.
      Franks pulled the Bullets even in the 57th minute with the first goal of his career. Sophomore Henry Smith (Westfield, N.J./Westfield) started the sequence, back-tapping a pass to classmate KJ DePontes (Holmdel, N.J./Holmdel) in the left side of the box. DePontes lofted a beautiful cross to Franks, who, with his momentum carrying him away from the goal, fired a shot a shot out of the air, across his body and over the goalie, making it a 1-1 contest.
      Freshman Max Karen (Huntington, N.Y./Elwood-John Glenn), who replaced Como in goal, made two saves in the second half, when the Mules held a 5-4 edge in shots.
      Each goalie made one save in the first overtime. Pinto turned aside a point-blank shot from Smith in the 91st minute before Karen registered a save in the 99th minute.
      Muhlenberg was awarded back-to-back corner kicks in the 106th minute, but neither team was able to muster a shot until the final minute. The Bullets threatened in transition, when senior Parker Delmolino's (Monroe, Conn./Fairfield Prep) cross found Steelman on the right side of the box with less than 40 seconds left. But the Mules regained and possession, and after a free kick and stoppage of time, Bryan Attanasio's shot hit the side of the net as time expired.
      Karen, making just his second collegiate appearance, finished with three saves.
      Gettysburg returns to action on Wednesday, when it visits Johns Hopkins University in another Centennial Conference match-up starting at 7 p.m.

It was set up by senior Meg Castranova (Pennington, N.J./Pennington School), who had her cross deflect off a defender and right to Brady, who drilled in a shot from the top of the box.
      The Orange and Blue netted their final three goals over a 15-minute span midway through the second half. Senior Georgia Ferguson (Bethel, Conn./Bethel) scored off a feed from junior Melissa Seidner (Hamilton, N.J./Peddie School) in the 57th minute before classmate Molly Phillips (Yardley, Pa./Pennsbury) headed in a corner kick from junior Lauren Schapiro (Stamford, Conn./Stamford) five minutes later. Freshman Maddie Heaney (Allendale, N.J./Northern Highlands Regional) capped the scoring when she converted a dish from Brady in the 71st minute.
      Junior Eliza Gray (South Orange, N.J./Columbia) played the opening 71 minutes to pick up the win in goal before seniors Paige Della Badia (Scotch Plains, N.J./Scotch Plains-Fanwood) and Morgan Patullo (Bridgewater, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan) played the 12 and seven minutes, respectively.
      Barry finished with 11 saves for Washington.
      Gettysburg picks up its schedule on Monday, when it visits ninth-ranked Misericordia University at 7 p.m. in a non-conference tilt.

      Pre Qualifying Singles Draw





      Vukic Reaches Qualifying Draw of ITA Men’s All-American Championships

      Freshman will join Guignon in qualifying draw set to begin Monday


      TULSA, Okla. - University of Illinois tennis freshman Aleks Vukic worked his way through the pre-qualifying portion of the 2014 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men's All-American Championships over weekend, defeating Christian Seraphim of Wake Forest 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 Sunday afternoon to secure a spot in the qualifying draw.


      Vukic defeated Carter Lam of Hawaii in the opening round 6-2, 7-5, Saturday morning. In the second round, the Sydney, Australia native took down Lasse Muscheites of North Florida 6-3, 6-3 to reach the third round where he defeated (12) Nick Bybel of Bucknell 7-5, 5-7, 6-4.


      "Aleks showed tremendous fighting spirit today," assistant coach Marcos Asse said. "Aleks walked onto the court for his second match still cramping a bit from his match earlier this morning. His ability to calm himself and play relaxed yet aggressive winning tennis was major progress. As we all know, playing at Atkins in front of 1,000 fans can be nerve racking at times and he demonstrated an ability to bring his stress level down consciously which will pay dividends when the Spring season starts. I'm excited for both Aleks and Ross tomorrow."


      Vukic will join senior Ross Guignon in the qualifying draw of the championships, which begins Monday, Sept. 29. Vukic will be back in action at 12:30 p.m. Monday in Tulsa, Oklahoma when his faces Christopher Mengel of Duke. Guignon, who was selected to the qualifying draw, will begin competition Monday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. against (14) Dusty Boyer of Nebraska.

      Hagan Falls After Run at All-American Championships
      Senior loses third round match of pre-qualifiers 
      TULSA, Okla. -- University of Iowa men's tennis senior Matt Hagan had himself a great outing at the ITA All American Championships on Saturday. Hagan posted two straight victories in the Pre-Qualifying rounds, making him the lone Hawkeye left to compete in the championship bracket on Sunday.
      On Saturday, Hagan grabbed victories over Sanjay Goswami of Weber State in straight sets 6-3, 6-3. And, in a hard-fought match that went three sets, Hagan was able to claw his way to a win over Oklahoma State's Nicolai Ferrigno, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.
      Hagan looked to keeping his winning streak going on Sunday in the third round of Pre-Qualifying. There he squared off against 27th-ranked Strong Kirchheimer of Northwestern. The Hawkeye senior fought hard but was unable to keep his momentum from yesterday going as he fell in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (4).
      “Matt Hagan lost a tough one today, but it was good to see him put together consecutive wins in a very tough tournament,” said interim head coach Ross Wilson.  
      Elsewhere, Dominic Patrick took part in a consolation match where he faced Arkadijs Slobodkins of Southern Methodist University. Patrick took the match in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.
      "Dominic pulled out a tough three set match this afternoon. He keeps getting better with every match he plays," added Wilson.
      Lefteris Theodorou also claimed a victory in the consolations defeating Todd Volmari of Loyola Marymount in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.
      Jake Jacoby fell to Yannick Junger of the University of Texas at San Antonio in straight sets, 7-6 (5), 7-5 in a consolation matchup. Sophomore Nils Hallestrand battled Everth Dzib of South Florida in a consolation bout, but it was Dzib who claimed the victory, 7-5, 6-2.
      “We competed well today and had some good results we need to get back on the practice courts and get better for the ITA Regionals in two weeks,” Wilson said.
      The Hawkeyes will have a week off before it heads to Norman, Oklahoma, to take part in the ITA Central Regionals, Oct. 9-13.

      WHKY: Ohio State Hosts Sunday Exhibition vs. Western

      The Buckeyes will hold a final preseason tune up Sunday (11:07 a.m.) at the OSU Ice Rink




      COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State women’s hockey team will welcome the University of Western Ontario to the OSU Ice Rink on Sunday for an exhibition contest. Scheduled to begin at 11:07 a.m., the Buckeyes will put the final touches on their 2014-15 preseason against Western, a Canadian university located in London, Ontario.



      Can’t make it to the rink? Fans can follow along with live updates on the team’s official Twitter @OhioState_WHKY. Also, be sure to check out the squad’s other social media accounts for an inside peek at what it’s like to #LiveIt like a Buckeye - Facebook and Instagram.  



      Ohio State recently extended a warm welcome to newly instated WCHA commissioner Aaron Kemp. As a part of his “goodwill tour” to all eight WCHA institutions, Kemp was introduced to the Buckeye student-athletes, coaches and media during his time in Columbus.


      "I had the opportunity to meet with the team, which I thought was spectacular," Kemp said. "To be able to really talk to the student-athletes and tell them what my vision is, show them who I am and give them an idea of what we are looking at for the future. I also try to solicit some feedback from them and see what they want. Ultimately that's why we're here, to provide a good experience for the student-athletes."


      Under the direction of Kemp, the WCHA is committed to increasing brand exposure and awareness through a variety of venues. One of the most prominent is via social media. The conference’s new handles for the women’s WCHA are as follows: Twitter (@wcha_whockey) and Facebook (WCHA Women’s Hockey).



      Senior Sara Schmitt will don the captain’s “C” for the Scarlet and Gray during the 2014-15 season, while fellow seniors Kari Schmitt and Kara Gust will be recognized as the team’s assistant captains. The leadership unit, announced by head coach Nate Handrahan, exhibits excellence on and off the ice as backbones of the Buckeye defense and Ohio State Scholar-Athletes.


      “I believe they are very capable and responsible to lead our team to where we want to be,” Handrahan said. “Sara is an excellent person who has been an unrecognized leader in her time as a Buckeye. She has shown to be well rounded in all areas of her life and will be able to interact with all team members in a positive, constructive way. I trust her and her abilities to lead us effectively."



      Nate Handrahan is entering his fourth season at the helm of the Ohio State women’s hockey program. In his first three seasons as a Buckeye, Handrahan has compiled an overall record of 50-48-12. He is the second women’s hockey coach in the 12-year history of the program. Handrahan, a graduate of Niagara University, is joined by second-year assistant coaches Carson Duggan and Keith Maurice.


      Handrahan has high expectations for the 2014-15 Buckeyes following a fifth-place WCHA run last season.


      “I thought from Thanksgiving moving forward, especially into the second half of the season, we were one of the hottest teams in the country,” Handrahan said. “If the second half of last year was any indication, I’m pretty excited about the group as they come back.”



      Ohio State returns 17 letterwinners from a season ago, including nine forwards, seven defensemen and one goaltender. Eight will be welcomed into the Buckeye family as newcomers, four of which will suit up as forwards, two on defense and two in goal.


      On offense, the Buckeyes will be fueled by nine of the Top 10 point earners from the 2013-14 campaign. With a line of 7-21-28, senior captain Sara Schmitt ranks as Ohio State’s top returning point producer, while sophomore standout Claudia Kepler led the Buckeyes with 12 goals last season. After losing both goaltenders to graduation, the Buckeyes will look to redshirt junior Stacy Danczak or newcomers Alex LaMere and Kassidy Sauve to fill the role.



      Ohio State was projected to finish fifth in the 2014-15 WCHA Head Coaches’ Preseason Poll. The Minnesota Gophers are the preseason favorite after advancing to the NCAA championship game in each of the last three seasons. 


      UP NEXT

      The Buckeyes will officially open the season against New Hampshire on Friday, Oct. 3. Puck drop is scheduled for 6:07 p.m. at the OSU Ice Rink. The series will continue the following day with an afternoon contest between the teams at 2:07 p.m., also at the OSU Ice Rink.  Admission is free of charge.

    • SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Women’s Tennis Unable to Advance in CAA Tournament; James Madison Sweeps Blue Hens, 4-0


      DATE:  April 18, 2014



      WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – The University of Delaware women’s tennis team had a three-match winning streak snapped as James Madison University ended the Blue Hens' season by a score of 4-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinals, held Friday afternoon at William & Mary's Millie West Tennis Facility.


      The fourth-seeded Dukes (13-5, 2-3 CAA), who swept the Hens, 7-0, just two weeks ago, posted wins in the top two doubles flights to earn the team point and go into singles action with a 1-0 advantage.


      No. 5 Delaware (8-8, 3-2 CAA) put up a fight in singles play, but was unable to come out on top in the end. JMU collected wins in the third, fifth and sixth flights en route to victory.


      Due to the nature of the tournament and stopping all matches once the fourth team point is clinched, seniors Olivia Heim (Gibsonia, Pa.) and Dorothy Safron (New York, N.Y.) and sophomore Danea Jonjic’ (Split, Croatia) were unable to complete their matches.


      All three matches were close as Jonjic’ (No. 1 singles) and Heim (No. 4 singles) both won their first sets while Safron was tied with Alex Huie in the No. 2 spot.




      Head coach Laura Travis

      “Today’s match was a valiant effort against a strong JMU squad. We definitely improved upon our play from when we played them just two weeks ago, but they came out ahead once again.”



      • Dorothy Safron finished her Blue Hens career with a record of 72-40, a mark good for fifth all-time. Current head coach Laura LeRoy Travis (1985-89) is fourth with a mark of 73-12.
      • Safron ended with an all-time doubles mark of 64-41, which places her seventh all-time in Delaware history.
      • Safron is just the third player in school history to record at least 70 singles and 60 doubles wins. Samantha Carnall (2008-12) and Ivana Petrich (2007-11) also reached the mark in their careers.
      • Olivia Heim wrapped up her four-year career in a Delaware uniform with a record of 61-46, a mark good for 11th in the Blue Hens record books.
      • Danea Jonjic’ and Christina Harrington were unable to notch their fourth straight doubles victory as they held a 7-4 lead when James Madison clinched the team point.
      • Carmen Lai was unable to compete Friday due to injury.
      • The Blue Hens finished the season with an 86-89 singles record while going 45-37 in doubles play.



      • Season complete.

      SUBJECT:  University of Delaware Men’s Tennis Collects 5-2 Victory Over Bucknell

      DATE:  March 23, 2014


      WILMINGTON, Del. – The University of Delaware men’s tennis team earned a 5-2 victory over Bucknell University Sunday afternoon at DuPont Country Club.

      The Blue Hens (4-6) opened the afternoon by winning the doubles points following victories from seniors Troy Beneck (Wilmington, Del.) and Adam Lawton (Estepona, Spain) in the top flight and junior Evan Andrews (York, Pa.) and sophomore Mike Furr (Kennett Square, Pa.) in the No. 2 spot.

      Lawton then cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 win over Aidan Lynch in No. 2 singles while Andrews defeated Bryan Adams in No. 3 singles, 6-4, 6-2.

      In the final two matches of the afternoon, Beneck came from behind to outlast Nick Bybel, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, in the top spot before Furr battled and eventually won a heated match against Octavio Canibe, 6-4, 7-6 (4).


      Head Coach Laura Travis

      “We played some great matches again today. Our top doubles teams played at a high level once again.”

      Senior Troy Beneck

      “We played well today. When I’m in a tight situation, I’m able to block out everything around me and just focus on the match and the next point.  Adam and I both served very well in our doubles match today and I’m happy with our outcome.”

      Senior Adam Lawton

      “We’ve been playing really good teams and in order for us to win, we have to keep up our consistency.”


      • Troy Beneck and Adam Lawton have each won four straight singles matches.
      • The pair has also won four consecutive doubles matches.
      • Lawton earned his 60th career singles victory in his third season with the Blue Hens, a mark that just three other players (Beneck, Chris Hincker and Austin Longacre) have accomplished in their careers.
      • Delaware is 40-36 in doubles play this season.

      • Wednesday, April 2 – Delaware at James Madison* - 2 p.m. – Harrisonburg, Va.
