Athletes of the week
Volleyball ? Catie Fisher led the Tartans offensively, leading the team in kills consistently throughout their weekend tournament. She helped lead the team to a seventh-place finish at the Fifth Annual Marcia French Memorial Tournament.
Women?s Soccer ? Mollie Salpeter, Andrea Maresca, Sarah DeWath, and Amanda Rose led a Tartan defense that allowed only two shots on goal over two games against Washington & Jefferson and Grove City. Their stifling presence kept goalie Christie Adams from having to make a save in either game. First-year Abigail Coffin also contributed, scoring her team-leading fourth goal versus Washington & Jefferson.
Men?s Soccer ? William Schlough, a junior midfielder, led the men?s soccer team with a goal and an assist against Grove City last Wednesday.
Football ? Travis Sivek, last year?s UAA Rookie of the Year, had two touchdown runs to help lead his team to a 20?16 comeback victory. Sivek rushed for 125 yards on 27 carries, picking up an average of nearly five yards a carry.
Baseball ? Dan Ruef, a graduate student pitcher and first baseman, started the season with a complete game shutout versus Robert Morris, striking out 14. He also led the team at the plate, batting .750 on the weekend with three RBI, six runs scored, and
five stolen bases.
Men?s Cross Country ? Andy Fredrickson was the team?s first overall finisher at the Duquesne Duals on September 3. It was Fredrickson?s first collegiate meet.
Women?s Cross Country ? Jocelyn Sikora was named UAA athlete of the week after finishing fifth overall at the Duquesne Duals. Sikora was the top NCAA Division III finisher in a field of 44 competitors, completing the five-kilometer course in a time of 19:04.
