Rose-Hulman has reached the No. 23 position for the second time this season and has achieved its highest men’s basketball national ranking since 1999. The Engineers are also the only Indiana school to receive votes in the national poll.

Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference rival Transylvania joined Rose-Hulman in the weekly top 25 poll, marking the first time this season that two HCAC teams have been ranked. The Pioneers are ranked No. 22 nationally this week.

Rose-Hulman is 17-2 and leads the HCAC at 11-1 after defeating Mount St. Joseph 60-39 on Saturday. The Engineers also rank No. 1 nationally in NCAA Division III defensive rankings, allowing just 48.5 points per game.

Clauser earned the honors for the second time this season after a school-record performance at the Engineer Invitational on Saturday. Her time of 59.80 seconds marked a school record in the 400-meter dash and helped Clauser top a field of runners from nine schools. The time was also the first sub-one minute indoor women’s 400-meter time in Rose-Hulman history.

Evans recorded the best high jump in NCAA Division III so far this season with a leap of 5-feet-10. The mark is the second-best height of her career that features four NCAA Division III national championships and six All-America awards. Evans also ranks in the top 20 in NCAA Division I, II and III women’s track and field with the mark.

Rose-Hulman returns to action at Ohio Northern University on Saturday.

  • Two homers help Rex emerge victorious over Springfield 3-1

    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.

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.
