Metro Roundup: ISU, Purdue to face off again

TERRE HAUTE —

Indiana State and Purdue match up for the second time in six days today, when the Boilermakers travel to Terre Haute for the first time since 2006 for a game at 6 p.m. at Bob Warn Field at Sycamore Stadium.

The Sycamores (13-13) rallied for two runs in the ninth against the Boilermakers (11-18) Wednesday, as sophomore Landon Curry and junior Cody Zimmerman each drove in a run in the inning to lead Indiana State to the 4-3 victory.

Today’s game is a Bark at the Park evening with volunteers and officials from the Terre Haute Humane Society available during the game to help baseball fans make a new canine friend. Adoption applications will be available.

Today’s game can be heard live on WIBQ 98.5 FM and on the Nelligan Sports Marketing Radio Network as Brian Fritz calls all the action on the diamond. A free video stream is also available through SycamoreVision on GoSycamores.com. Indiana State plays its next seven games at home, hosting Creighton this weekend and both Butler and SIU Edwardsville next week.

Track and field

• Evans honored — Rose-Hulman senior Liz Evans earned her second United States Track and Field Coaches Association National Athlete of the Week award of the 2013 season on Monday.

Evans set a new NCAA Division III all-time record in the high jump with a leap of 5-feet-111⁄2 at Bellarmine University on Saturday.

Entering the weekend in a  three-way tie with Middlebury’s Kristy Laramee of Middlebury and Maria Megnin of Hartwick on the all-time list at 5-feet- 111⁄4, Evans cleared her Division III-record height on the final attempt after making her first four heights on five attempts.

Evans previously tied the record at the Rose-Hulman Early Bird Invitational in March.

Rose-Hulman returns to action with two meets this weekend. The Fightin’ Engineers host an open meet on Friday and travel to the Indiana Division III Championships at Franklin on Saturday.

Awards

• Rose athletes honored — Rose-Hulman student-athletes combined for three Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week awards, in results released by the league office on Monday.

Sophomore Jessica Ahlborn was named HCAC Softball Hitter of the Week, senior Liz Evans was the HCAC Women’s Field Athlete of the Week, and senior Travis Stallings earned Women’s Tennis Player of the Week honors.

Ahlborn batted .571 with a 1.286 slugging average and a .600 on-base average to help lead the Rose-Hulman softball offense last week.

She finished 8-for-14 with three doubles, two triples and a walk-off home run in the 3-2 win over Saint Mary-of-the-Woods on Sunday. Ahlborn’s efforts also included two doubles and a triple over the course of Sunday’s doubleheader.

Evans set a new NCAA Division III record in the high jump by clearing 5-feet-111⁄2 to win the event at Bellarmine University. She previously tied the NCAA record with a leap of 5-feet-111⁄4 earlier this season.

The seven-time All-American and four-time national champion was also named HCAC Field Athlete of the Year for the fifth time in her career earlier this year.

Stallings ran a 400-meter hurdles time of 53.37 seconds that ranks eighth nationally in NCAA Division III and fourth in Rose-Hulman history. He placed second overall against NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA runners.

During the HCAC indoor season, Stallings was part of Rose-Hulman championship teams in the 4-x-200 and 4-x-400-meter relays and earned runner-up honors in the long jump.

Rose-Hulman’s softball team returns to action with a home game Tuesday against Franklin College. The Fightin’  Engineer track and field teams host an open meet on Friday night, then head to the Indiana Division III Championships at Franklin on Saturday.

Tennis
