Metro Roundup: Rose swimmers have history making weekend

WHEATON, Ill. — Rose-Hulman’s best weekend of collegiate swimming in its history ended late Saturday with 17 school records, 15 NCAA qualifying or provisionally qualifying swims, 14 all-conference awards and five event victories, as the Engineer men were third and the Rose women fifth at the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin meet.

Automatically qualifying for the NCAA Division III championships are freshman Orion Martin, who set school and CCIW records with a 48.51-second clocking to win the 100 butterfly, and senior John Huster. Huster, a Terre Haute North graduate, was runner-up in the same event at 48.99 and also reached the automatic qualifying standard.

Matt Ross, who was third in the 100 butterfly to give Rose its first one-two-three conference finish ever, also won the 200 butterfly, while three men’s relay teams — 200 medley, 400 medley and 400 freestyle — also won.

Huster and Martin shared the men’s Outstanding Performer award, while Keith Crawford was named CCIW men’s coach of the year.


• Sycamores split, come home 2-2 — At Huntsville, Ala., Indiana State split a doubleheader with Morehead State on Sunday, losing 6-5 before rallying for a 7-5 win in the nightcap.

ISU trailed 4-2 going into the bottom of the eighth inning of the second game but won it with a five-run rally. Owen Conway had a leadoff homer and Rob Ort a two-run single to lead the way. Terre Haute South graduate Josh Dove got the win in relief.

The Sycamores go back to Alabama next weekend, playing the College of Charleston on Friday, Middle Tennessee State on Saturday and host Auburn next Sunday.


• Sycamores lead — At Birmingham, Ala., Indiana State’s women lead after the first round of the Birmingham Southern Ann Rhoads Invitational. Final round is today.

ISU’s first-day score of 311 is 10 strokes ahead of second-place Harding.

“It was a good start to the spring season,” said coach Greg Towne. “Definitely a good performance in 40 degrees, especially since our last round was in October.”

Reece Feducia, who missed the fall season, is second individually with a 75 while McCall Christopher shot 77 and Emily Dixon 78. Also playing are Gina Della Camera (81), Christina Beyerl (85) and Erinn Sutton (93).

Brittany Marquez of Harding leads the tournament after shooting a 71.


• Indiana State 9, Tennessee State 6, 8 innings — At Auburn, Ala., the Sycamores gave up a lead by allowing four seventh-inning runs but won in extra innings with the help of Megan Stone’s two-run homer.

“We got a gutty pitching performance, a huge hit from Megan Stone and some great defensive plays to head home with a win today,” coach Shane Bouman said. “We learned a lot this weekend and are exited about getting back to practice this week.”

The Sycamores, 6-4, scored five runs in the top of the first inning, taking advantage of five walks, and had a 6-2 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh.

A perfect relay from left fielder Megan Bunting to shortstop Morgan Allee to catcher Meredith Henriksen cut down a potential winning run at the plate to end Tennessee State’s rally, and a sacrifice fly by Shelby Wilson and Stone’s homer provided the winning runs in the top of the eighth. Stone finished 4 for 4 with two runs and the two RBIs.

Next action for ISU is the Blues City Classic at Memphis that starts Friday.


• White River Valley 51, Union 17 — At Switz City, Michael Fisher outscored the visitors by himself in SouthWestern Indiana Athletic Conference play Saturday night.

Fisher had 26 points and Cade Hill 13 for the Wolverines, while Trey Bedwell had nine points as the Bulldogs completed a winless regular season.
