Metro roundup: ISU trails by 4 with 18 holes left

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Indiana State is four shots out of the lead and McCall Christopher five shots from the individual lead after the second of three rounds of the Missouri Valley Conference golf championships was completed Monday at Panther Creek Country Club.

Danielle Lemek of Bradley, who shared the individual lead with Christopher after the two made history as the first two players to break 70 on the same day in the MVC tournament in Sunday’s first round, followed up her 69 with a 70 and is at 139. Christopher shot a 75 on Monday.

Bradley also has the team lead with a two-day score of 599, while pre-tournament favorite Wichita State is at 601 and ISU at 603.

“It poured rain for the first 11 holes,” ISU coach Greg Towne said. “We could have been better prepared and I felt we let a few go early and did finish as well as Sunday. But we are where we want to be … in the last group with a chance to win. I have a good feeling about it.”

Illinois State is fourth at 606, trailed by Southern Illinois and Missouri State at 608, Evansville at 611, Drake at 616, Northern Iowa at 620 and Loyola at 622.

Christopher’s 144 score is a career low after the first two rounds of the MVC Championship. Her 69 on Sunday was the second-lowest round in school history.

Marissa Uradomo and Amanda Smith are tied for 12th at 151 — Uradomo following up a 72 with a 79, Smith shooting a 75 and a 76.

Erinn Sutton is at 159, shooting 77 on Monday after opening with an 82, and Gina Della Camera is at 160 after shooting two rounds of 80.

Wichita’s Alejandra Arellano is third individually at 145, with Drake’s Arianna Gastelum (147) and Hadley Jennings (148) fourth and fifth.

The final round begins at 10 a.m. today.


• Keaffaber, two Engineers selected
— Indiana State’s Ryan Keaffaber is Missouri Valley Conference Pitcher of the Week in baseball and Rose-Hulman’s Carly Heibel and Stuart West earned Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference awards that were announced Monday.

Keaffaber, who won an earlier Pitcher of the Week award at ISU’s closer, picked up two wins during the week, one as a starter against Eastern Illinois and one in long relief at Canisius. He allowed three runs on eight hits in 14 innings, striking out 10 and walking two.

Keaffaber still leads the MVC with eight saves, which ranks 24th in the nation. ISU hosts Purdue this evening.

Heibel was also Pitcher of the Week for HCAC softball with two complete-game conference wins. She beat Anderson 2-1 with a six-hitter and stopped Mount St. Joseph 5-2 while allowing seven hits.

She currently leads the HCAC with a 1.18 earned run average and has a 9-3 record, allowing 70 hits in 83 1/3 innings pitched. She has eight complete games and two shutouts.

West helped the Engineers win a 12-team Twilight Meet on Friday by winning the 1,500-meter run in 4:00.07. The Engineer men will be vying for their seventh straight conference outdoor title this weekend at Defiance.

Rose softball, 15-11 overall and 9-5 in league play, will be at Greenville today.


• Rose-Hulman 6, Brescia 3
— At Owensboro, Ky., the Engineer men opened a three-day road trip by beating an NAIA opponent.

Brandon Benedict and Georges Adam continued to lead the way for Rose-Hulman, picking up wins at the top two singles positions and combining for the victory at No. 1 doubles.

    The Terre Haute Rex rank second among the 12 Prospect League baseball teams in extra-base hits and Zach Welz, Kaden Moore and Tony Rosselli added to the Rex 2014 haul at Bob Warn Field in a 3-1 win over Springfield on Thursday.
    Kaden Moore put up the Rex’s first run with a line-drive home run over the left-field wall in the second inning. Welz added his homer in the seventh — with a no-doubt blast to left to add an insurance run.

  • Colts notebook: Rookie Mewhort ready to compete

    So just who is Jack Mewhort?
    Well, the Indianapolis Colts rookie is slated to take over as the team’s new starting left guard due to the season-ending quad injury suffered Wednesday by veteran Donald Thomas.
     A former standout at Ohio State, the 6-foot-6, 308-pound Mewhort was selected by the Colts in the second round of this spring’s NFL draft. And since Indianapolis didn’t have a first-round pick, the Toledo, Ohio, native is getting a lot more scrutiny that most second-rounders taken in the draft.
