Athletes of the Week
Baseball ? Tim Sandy, a first-year pitcher and right fielder, is batting .364 (4 for 11) with two stolen bases and two runs scored through the first four games of the season. He was the starting pitcher in the Tartans' fourth game last weekend, giving up five runs in the first inning before settling down to throw three effective innings against Franciscan.
Men's Track ? Scott Fortune, a first-year, won the 800-meter run Wednesday at the Carnegie Mellon Invitational. His time of 1:59.46 beat out teammate Kevin Pruzinsky by a mere half a second. This time gives him the fourth fastest time in the UAA this season. It was Fortune's first 800-meter victory as a member of the Tartans.
Women's Track ? Kelli Mingle, a first-year, won the 400-meter dash at the Carnegie Mellon Invitational, beating her next closest competitors from Waynesburg and Pitt?Johnstown by 2.5 seconds. Her time is currently the tenth fastest in the UAA this spring. It was Mingle's first 400-meter victory as a Tartan.
Women's Tennis ? Amy Staloch continued to rip through her competition, winning in both singles and doubles play last weekend at the UAA championships. She defeated Washington's number-one player, Lauren Zwick, in straight sets and then beat her again while paired with Mona Iyer in doubles competition.
Men's Tennis ? Jordan Koslosky, though he lost a tough match at fifth singles against Brandeis, makes the list for the supreme effort he put into his game. He fought through two tiebreakers and nearly came away with a Carnegie Mellon victory. The final outcome was a 6?7 (5?7), 6?3, 7?6 (7?4) loss. He'll look to rebound Sunday at home against Mercyhurst before heading to the NCAA regional tournament.
