Women’s Cross Country:
SVSU’s women’s cross country team took third overall at the Lansing Invitational this past Friday. In a field of 20 teams, the Lady Cards finished only 19 points behind invitational winner Wayne State. Freshman Isabella Garcia led the Cardinals with a 5K time of 19:17:07, which was good for 11th overall.
The men’s golf team placed eighth overall in a field of 16 at the Kyle Ryman Memorial in Tiffin, Ohio. Senior Mason Motte led the Cardinals, shooting 1-over-par across the tournament’s three rounds, featuring a second-round 2-under-par 70. Motte’s score was good enough to finish T-13.
The men’s soccer team fell to GLIAC rival Northwood on Wednesday 1-0 in overtime. The Cardinals outplayed the Timberwolves in nearly every stat-line. SVSU had 13 shots to Northwood’s seven, two less penalties committed and took 11 corner kicks compared to the Timberwolves’ four. The team bounced back Sunday and defeated Northern Michigan 3-1.
The volleyball team beat Purdue Northwest on Friday, Oct. 6, taking all three sets. Sophomore middle Rachel Eisenhour earned “Player of the match” marks by hitting .500 and earning six block assists. Sophomore outside Sarah Tabit led the team with 15 kills and eight digs.
The volleyball team’s winning streak was short-lived, however, as the Lady Cards fell to Davenport 3-2 on Saturday, Oct. 7.
