METRO/PREP ROUNDUP: Rose-Hulman football canceled for Saturday

MICHAEL STEVENS

The Rose-Hulman football matchup with Manchester University, scheduled for Saturday at Cook Stadium, has been canceled.

The Engineers will take a 3-1 record into their season finale April 17 at Bluffton.

In other Rose football news, junior Michael Stevens was named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week and Adam Clark claimed HCAC Special Teams Player of the Week honors in results released by the league office.

Stevens was named HCAC Defensive Player of the Week after leading the Engineers with 11 tackles and recording a key defensive pick-six in Saturday's 34-14 home win over Franklin. The biomedical-engineering major had eight solo tackles among his 11 total hits and hauled in a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown when Rose-Hulman held a 27-14 lead in the fourth quarter.

Stevens leads the Engneers with 43 tackles and is tied with teammate Rashard Brown for team-high honors with two interceptions.

Clark finished with two field goals and was 4 for 4 on extra points in Rose's victory Saturday. The chemical-engineering major stands 5 of 6 on field goals and 18 of 18 on extra points this season.

Clark has kicked at least one field goal in every game and had a season-high seven extra points in the season-opening win over Defiance.

Track

Malone earns second straight honor — For the second time in as many weeks, Indiana State sprinter Noah Malone has earned Missouri Valley Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week honors, the Valley announced Wednesday morning.

Malone continued his dominance on the track for the Sycamores on Saturday against EIU. The freshman once again collected a pair of victories in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, clocking a wind-aided (2.2) time of 10.55 in the 100 to increase his already Valley-leading time. His time was once again faster than the Americas and USA Para World Records and is now 46th in the NCAA East Region.

He followed that performance with a victory in the 200, running faster than the Para World Record for the second week in a row, recording a wind-aided (3.3) time of 21.07 to reclaim the MVC lead. His time is 37th in the East Region and 66th in the NCAA. Malone also was a part of the conference-leading and victorious 4X100 relay squad that posted the 25th-best mark in the East Region and 54th-best time in the nation of 40.76.

ISU will return to action Friday and Saturday when it heads to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the Crimson Tide Invite.
