Knight Golf Falls In Opener

The Southwood golf team finally opened their season Thursday, falling to Whitko 193-202.

Quote(s) from Coach Ulmer:          The Southwood boys were led by senior Casey Huston with a 43.  Casey is our team leader on and off the golf course.  It’s nice to see him get a good round to start the season.  Paul Farlow, a freshman, began his high school career with a solid 45.  Keaton Boyer added a 56, Steven Metz had a 58, followed by Mason Lloyd, Hunter Law, and Matt Klinger.

 

 

Next Opponent and Date: vs Oak Hill/Wabash @ Oak Hill -  Tuesday April 22

Manchester U Track Classic

WOMEN’S OUTDOOR TRACK AND FIELD

MU claims four events at Classic

NORTH MANCHESTER, IND. – A strong meet from the field event crew helped lead Manchester University at its 2014 Spartan Classic Thursday, April 17.

Junior jumps specialist Bridgette Rowe (La Quinta, Calif.) took first in the high and triple jumps, and freshman throws specialist Barinem Aator (West Lafayette, Ind.) registered top marks in the discus and hammer to make up four individual event wins for the home team.

Rowe cleared 1.6 meters in the high jump, besting the three-jumper field by five-hundredths of a meter and then went 10.87 meters in the triple jump, better than seventh-tenths of a meter ahead of second place. Aator was just as impressive with a toss of 32.4 meters in the discus to defeat the field by two-tenths and then a personal-best launch of 42.43 meters in the hammer. The toss mark nearly led the group of 17 throwers by four full meters.

In the track portion, the Black and Gold recorded a top five finish in the 400 meter hurdles. Sophomore Kasey Reneau (Hagerstown, Ind.) clocked a 64.41-second effort to end fifth.

Manchester University moves into preparations for the 2014 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships. The meet is set for Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26, at Defiance College of Ohio.

NOTES: Aator’s hammer throw, converting to 139 feet, two and a half inches, is the third-longest in program history.

MEN’S OUTDOOR TRACK AND FIELD

Coble leads Spartans at home meet

NORTH MANCHESTER, IND. – Six events produced top three finishes for Manchester University at their home Spartan Classic Thursday, April 17.

Junior throws specialist Stephen Coble (Edwardsburg, Mich.) led the cavalcade sweeping first-place honors in discus, hammer and shot put. His three titles were spotlighted by the hammer where his moon toss of 50.34 meters (165 feet, one and three-quarters inches) set a new program record and beat the field of 11 throwers by nearly seven full meters. His other winning marks were 13.89 meters in the shot put and 43.11 meters in the discus.

MU’s field event success continued in the high jump. Junior Austin Finley (Kokomo, Ind.) and freshman Ramsen Bet-Nimrod (Rochester, Ind.) wound up second and third.

In the track events, MU gained a pair of thirds. Junior Trae Bruce (North Manchester, Ind.) clocked a 62.27-second time in the 400 hurdles, and senior Chris LaFree (South Bend, Ind.) crossed in the same spot in the 1500 (4:10.77).

Manchester University moves into preparations for the 2014 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships. The meet is set for Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26, at Defiance College of Ohio.

NOTES: Coble’s hammer throw mark toppled the old school record of 161 feet, six inches, set by Brandon Dyben in 2007. It’s the second successive week he’s bettered 150 feet in the event, as he sent the hammer 156 feet at the Indiana Division III Championships April 12.
