Metro Sports: Chalk up No. 5 for Liz Evans

Rose-Hulman senior captures another D-III championship in women’s high jump

La Crosse, Wis. — Senior Liz Evans capped the top career in Rose-Hulman athletics history with her fifth national championship and eighth All-American award at Wisconsin-La Crosse on Friday.

A North Knox High School graduate, Evans cleared 5 feet, 10 1/2 inches to earn her fifth career women’s high-jump national title at the 2013 NCAA Division III track and field championships. She becomes just the second student-athlete in NCAA Division III history to win five career national titles in the high jump.

Evans also became the first eight-time All-American in Rose history. The mathematics and electrical engineering double major earned the 11th individual national championship and 84th All-American award in the Engineer athletic department history. Her honors marked the 49th All-American award and 10th national championship for the Rose-Hulman track and field program.

Evans, who cleared an NCAA Division III all-time record of 6-0 in the high jump at Louisville earlier this month, has also earned two Capital One Academic All-American honors in her career. She has also been nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year award.

For the first time, Evans also battled through an injury to earn a national championship. In her final workout prior to leaving for Wisconsin, Evans suffered a significant ankle injury that needed to be nursed throughout the last four days.

Her eight All-American awards include five first-place efforts (2013 outdoors; 2012 indoors and outdoors; 2011 indoors and outdoors), two national runner-up performances (2010 indoors and outdoors) and one third-place effort (2013 indoors).

Rose also has four men’s track and field team members competing at the 2013 NCAA Division III outdoor championships. Senior Collin Crowson finished 11th nationally in the men’s pole vault after clearing 15-1 on Thursday. Senior Travis Stallings added a 15th-place finish nationally with a 400-meter hurdles time of 53.90 seconds in his first appearance at a national championship. Senior Trey Cahill came home 17th in the hammer throw with a toss of 178-6 Friday.

Senior Tyler Hannan added a 14th-place effort in the 400 dash with a time of 48.53 Friday night.

Auto racing

• Hulman Classic now June 21 — Rain and wet grounds forced postponement of the Tony Hulman Classic for U.S. Auto Club sprint cars Wednesday at the Terre Haute Action Track.

The race has been rescheduled for June 21.

Softball

• Rodgers resigns — Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College head coach Gary Rodgers has announced that he will no longer coach the Pomeroys. He has resigned from his position, effective May 31.

Rodgers spent seven seasons at the helm after being hired in the fall of 2006. In his tenure at SMWC, Rodgers compiled a record of 187 wins, the most by any coach in school history. He guided the Pomeroys to two USCAA national championships, three runner-up finishes and one third-place finish. He also helped produce 13 All-Americans, 16 All-Academic honorees and six All-American Honorable Mention selections.

Rodgers plans to spend more time with his family in retirement, but Woods athletic director Deanna Bradley emphasized that his presence will be deeply missed by his players and the SMWC community.

“Gary has done a tremendous job during his tenure at SMWC,” Bradley said. “He not only had great success in the win/loss columns, but also in the relationship arena. His rapport with his players is outstanding and as he retires from coaching, he has left his players feeling successful about their athletic accomplishments and more importantly, about themselves. We are certainly going to miss him.”

Golf

• Ace posted — At Parke County Course, Andy Marcinko of Bloomingdale made the first hole-in-one of his career Tuesday on the 140-yard No. 9.
