METRO ROUNDUP: Rose-Hulman's Evans takes third at NCAA meet

Naperville, Ill. — Rose-Hulman senior Liz Evans earned her seventh career All-American award by finishing third in the women’s high jump at the NCAA Division III indoor track and field championships Saturday at North Central College.

Evans tied 2012 graduate Sutton Coleman for Rose’s career school record with seven All-American honors. She will have the opportunity to compete in one more Division III national championship event this May.

Evans cleared 5 feet, 6 1/2 inches on her first attempt to join four vaulters at the 5-7 3/4 height. She was awarded a tie for third place by virtue of recording no misses until her final height.

The winner ended up being Ripon’s Jenna Breaker, who cleared 5-7 3/4.

With Evans’ third-place finish, her career totals include seven All-American awards with four first-place efforts (2011 indoors and outdoors and 2012 indoors and outdoors), two national runner-up performances (2010 indoors and outdoors) and one third-place finish (2013 indoors).

Evans has earned four NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region Athlete of the Year awards and five Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year honors throughout her decorated career.

The mathematics and electrical-engineering double major also has earned Capital One Academic All-American honors in 2011 (first team) and 2010 (second team). Rose-Hulman’s track and field history now includes 49 All-American awards.


• Engineers split — At Art Nehf Field, Rose-Hulman rallied to earn a doubleheader split against Carthage College in its 2013 home openers Saturday.

Carthage won the first game 8-6, despite a Rose rally from a three-run deficit to force a 6-6 tie. In the nightcap, the Engineers scored twice in the seventh inning, once in the eighth and twice in the ninth to earn a 6-5 victory.

In the opener, freshman Caleb Kissel smashed a home run to lead Rose-Hulman’s seven-hit attack. Junior Hank Akard, senior Donald Stopka and senior Matthew Turk pitched in with two hits each.

Sophomore R.J. Carroll struck out seven in 5.2 innings of work out of the bullpen to lead the pitching effort.

In the nightcap, Rose trailed 4-1 before rallying with two runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to force a 4-4 tie. Senior Bobby Newman provided a two-run single in the seventh to bring the deficit to within 4-3. Junior Michael Bush singled and freshman Evan Witsken doubled to key the eighth-inning rally and force the tie.

In the ninth, Carthage scored once to take a 5-4 lead before Rose-Hulman’s ninth-inning rally. The Engineers took advantage of one fielding error and back-to-back singles by Stopka and Newman to load the bases with one out. Turk tied the game with a fielder’s choice, but a throwing error allowed Josh Hoeing to cross the plate with the winning run.

Newman had three hits, including a double, and two RBIs to lead the 11-hit attack in the nightcap. Akard, Stopka and Bush recorded two hits each.

Senior Matt Green tossed 3.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen and sophomore Caleb Post allowed just one run in two innings to pick up the victory.

Rose-Hulman (2-6) and Carthage (1-1) will complete the series with one nine-inning game at noon today at Art Nehf Field.
