No. 25 Women’s Bowling Wins Two-of-Five Matches on Day One of KU Invitational

1/18/2019 | Women’s Bowling Day One Standings

The 25th-ranked Kutztown University women’s bowling team had a difficult opening portion of its schedule as it competed against three nationally-ranked opponents, including two in the top-five. KU went 2-3 on day one of the Kutztown Invitational at Limerick Bowl.

The Golden Bears (33-35 overall) began the day victorious over Medaille 897-868, but ran into a buzz-saw, falling to fifth-ranked Sam Houston State 951-839 and then No. 3 Vanderbilt 1004-944 in a highly-competitive and a ‘who’s-who’-type of tournament, featuring 19 of the nation’s top-25 teams.

Kutztown bounced back in its fourth match taking down Youngstown State 973-953 before falling to its third ranked opponent of the day, University of Alabama Birmingham 1063-891 to round out day one’s traditional-style matches. KU threw its three highest scores against Youngstown, rolling back-to-back-to-back 200-plus scores with a day-high score of 223 in the first game.

Junior Renee Riffey had a team-high 19.7 frame average through 50 frames played. Sophomore Keanna Delp held an 18.9 average in 50 frames, while freshman Ashley Fister rolled an average of 18.1 in 47 frames. Angela Kozma was right there with a 17.8 frame average in 50 frames.

Kutztown sits in 23rd-place out of 28 teams entering day two Saturday of a three-day event.

It doesn’t get any easier for KU as it will once again challenge itself by competing against three nationally-ranked opponents, tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 19, beginning with No. 4 Arkansas State at 9:55 a.m.

KU Game Notes | Live Stats | Live Video | Audio

The Kutztown University men’s basketball team has found success against Bloomsburg University over the last four-plus seasons and will look to continue the trend when it travels to Nelson Field House for a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) East Division matchup tomorrow, Saturday, at 3 p.m.

The Golden Bears (8-6 overall, 2-4 PSAC) have won five straight games and eight of the last nine against the Huskies (4-6, 2-4), the lone loss coming in overtime during the 2015-16 campaign. The two teams met three times last year with KU coming out on top in each contest, including 93-79 last Feb. in the first round of the PSAC Tournament.

Kutztown has had an up-and-down first half of the season with half of its games behind it. KU is coming off a 74-61 non-conference road victory over Bowie State this past Wednesday, Jan. 2. It lost its East Division opener to West Chester in the game prior on Dec. 29, so will try to get on the board against Bloomsburg, a team entering on a 77-71 victory over Lock Haven Wednesday, but lost four straight games before.

The KU offense ranks third in the PSAC in scoring at 83.9 points per game (ppg), and has been in the top-three all season. KU is shooting 49.7-percent from the floor, second in the PSAC and the best since the 2016-17 season.

Anthony Lee has scored in double-digits the last 43 games and is second in Division II at 27.6 ppg. He is seventh in the conference in three-point percentage (44.2), first in three-pointers made (46) and second in free-throw percentage (91.2). Lee is one of just two players nationally to net a 50-point game this season. He scored 32 in the win against the Bulldogs and has not scored fewer than 15 points in any game this season.

Moe Williams has five double-doubles this season. He ranks first in the PSAC at 9.5 rebounds per game and second in field-goal percentage (58.9). Ricky Hicks has started 12-of-14 games and is 3rd on KU at 10.6 ppg. His 1.9 assists-to-turnover ratio ranks 10th in the PSAC.

Josh Townsend is fifth in the conference with 14 blocked shots, which leads KU. Kiyon Hardy is fifth on the team averaging 6.8 ppg and 4.4 rpg. Facundo Arens has started all 14 games and is averaging 6.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg and 1.7 assists per game (apg). Freshman Da’Quan Granberry is one-of-six Golden Bears to play in all 14 games this season. He is averaging 5.1 ppg and has scored at least nine points in four of the last five games.

The Huskies are led by Old Dominion transfer Ky Mauras, who has an average of 18.2 ppg. Freshman Travis Elmore is averaging 15.1 ppg and 7.6 rpg.

Bloomsburg is last in the PSAC in scoring defense and rebounding, so look for Kutztown’s high-scoring offense to find a rhythm in this one.

The pole vaulters had a successful night. Ally Tama cleared a personal-best mark of 3.40m (11-01.75), ninth all-time. Katie Seegert and Abigail Zeger each collected new PSAC-marks of 3.30m (10-10.00) and 3.20m (10-06.00) respectively. Zeger’s was a personal-best.

The high jumpers also had three qualifiers as freshman Taye Dairo, Becca Hemingway and Shelby Samuels all jumped to PSAC marks. Dairo measured a best of 1.65m (5-05.00), Hemingway was 1.60m (5-03.00) and Samuels had a 1.55m (5-01.00). Dairo and Hemingway also competed in the long jump and recorded PSAC marks, while freshmen Jerenita Sokan (16-04.25) and Kathleen Silverman (14-11.25) both accomplished personal-bests this season.

Ashley Petre came out on top in the weight throw with a qualifying mark of 15.47m (50-09.25), followed by Olivia Morano with a PSAC throw of 13.60m (44-07.50) Staci Jett (33-06.50) and Rebecca Schweitzer (28-06.50) each had season-best throws. Morano had a top-three finish in the shot put at 10.30m (33-09.50).

Kutztown had five runners in a large field in the 400m. Meghan Forsythe and Ashley Stewart finished one-two at 1:00.96 and 1:01.32 respectively, both were new PSAC marks for the duo. Julia Wiemken ran a personal-best time of 1:03.84, while Julie Stratton (1:04.91) and Angela Iaccarino (1:05.08) all finished in the top-seven.

Two KU 4×4 relay teams placed in the top-three. Stewart, Iaccarino, Dairo and Forsythe crossed the finish line in first at 4:16.02 and the team of Wiemken, Kira Solt, Stratton and freshman Devon Montanari were third at a time of 4:25.02.

Sophomore Dootleen Joseph ended at the head of the pack in the 1000m with a personal-best time of 3:24.22.

Montanari was fourth in the 800m at 2:32.50 and classmate Lynne O’Connor competed in her first collegiate meet in the mile, finishing with a time of 5:56.93.

PREVIEW: Women’s Basketball Looks to Keep Streak Alive at Bloomsburg

1/4/2019 | Women’s Basketball

KU Game Notes | Live Stats | Live Video | Audio

The Kutztown University women’s basketball has been playing its best basketball of the season of late, sporting a three-game win streak, its longest such streak since last season. KU will look to make it four when it travels to take on Bloomsburg University in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East Division showdown tomorrow, Saturday, at 1 p.m. at Nelson Field House.

The Golden Bears (6-7 overall, 4-2 PSAC) are winners of three straight and currently sit atop the East Division, along with the Huskies (8-5, 4-2), who have lost three-of-four.

These two teams have seen each other quite a bit over the last two seasons. They met twice last year during the regular season, splitting the contests with each home team winning. KU and BU also squared off in the first round of the PSAC Tournament last Feb. at Keystone Arena, as the Maroon and Gold came out on top to advance to the quarterfinals. Bloomsburg also competed in the KU Conference Challenge tournament to open up the season.

Kutztown has defeated Holy Family (Jan. 2), West Chester (Dec. 29) and Gannon (Dec. 19) by a combined 10 points as it continued its streak of scoring at least 66 points in each of the last six games. The KU defense, which ranks fifth in the PSAC, allowing just 63.7 points per game (ppg), has given up less over its current win streak, 61.6 ppg. KU’s full-court pressure and defensive intensity has helped create turnovers and east transition looks on the opposite end. Kalee Fuegel seems to always be around the ball and is tied for fourth in the PSAC with 30 steals.

The Golden Bears rank fourth in the conference with 7.3 made three-pointers per game. One of the main contributors to those numbers is sophomore Rylee Derr. Derr is averaging 18.3 ppg, eighth-best in the PSAC, an increase of 4.7 ppg from her freshman campaign. Derr has made 40 three-pointers this season, tops in the PSAC. She has scored a total of 50 points over the last two contests.

Karen Lapkiewicz has found a groove over the last couple of weeks. Her 10.2 ppg is a career-high by 2.7 ppg for the junior, and ranks second on the team. Brianna Tarabocchia ranks in the top-20 in the league with 7.0 rebounds per game.

Bloomsburg has three players averaging in double-figures, including Alyssa Mack (14.5 ppg), Taylor Montana (12.9) and Emma Saxton (11.1).

The Huskies have played seven common opponents with Kutztown this season. They defeated Fayetteville State, Lincoln, Pitt-Johnstown, Gannon and Mercyhurst. They fell to IUP and Holy Family, the team that KU beat 68-56 in its last game this past Wednesday, Jan. 2.

Still somewhat early in PSAC-play, this first-place showdown could go a long way in determining high seeding in the postseason.

Off the Pitch with Three-Time All-American Maddie Mohr

None in her sport have done it before her. Few all-time in any sport have accomplished it. Two weeks ago, Kutztown University women’s soccer student-athlete Maddie Mohr earned All-American status for the third consecutive year, becoming the first three-time All-American in program history and just the 18th all-time in KU athletics lore to achieve the feat.

Mohr was voted First Team All-America by the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division II list for the second straight year.

In 2017, Mohr was the program’s first-ever First Team honoree. She backed that recognition up with a second First Team award in a row, and now can call herself a three-time All-America after being voted Third Team by D2CCA as a freshman.

Mohr is just the 18th Kutztown University student-athlete all-time to be recognized as a three-time All-American.

“I wasn’t really expecting it,” said Mohr on hearing of the All-America recognition. “I didn’t have quite the season that I had the last two years. I was definitely excited and just kind of taken aback from it. It’s really rewarding, and to be able to come in right away as a freshman and contribute and have success is amazing because you don’t expect it. It just makes me work harder and gives me more goals to try and accomplish.”

So with all of the national accolades and overall success, why Kutztown?

“Looking back on it sometimes you question what if,” said Mohr. “But I knew a couple of girls on Kutztown when I was being recruited and they were really good players and the program was really good, so there was that success that drew me. When I came to campus on a visit it just clicked. The program looked like a culture I wanted to be a part of.”

This season alone she has been named to the All-Atlantic Region First Team by United Soccer Coaches and D2CCA for the third straight year and also to the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) First Team for the third time.

Mohr started in all 20 games this season, recording three goals and an assist, and was a strength for KU both on the offensive and defensive third. Kutztown finished the 2018 season 14-4-2 and qualified for both the PSAC and NCAA Atlantic Region Tournaments for the third straight year.

“I think we’ve held ourselves to a higher standard of late,” Mohr said. “We don’t always expect to get into these tournaments because it is really hard to, but they are always our main goals that we work towards. Each year the freshmen come in and know of the success we had the year before and they just know we want to keep that standard.”

The Elizabethtown native has started in 65-of-66 games through her first three seasons. She ranks fifth in program history with 28 career goals and is seventh with 64 career points. Her senior year in 2019 may very likely push her even further up the record books, but the team-player that she is, Mohr wants more than individual attention and awards.

“We want to advance far in the tournaments, but as a senior, I definitely want to win PSAC’s,” said Mohr. “That is something that has been a goal of ours since our freshmen year and beyond. Everybody on our team wants to accomplish that. We want it to be successful in our last run.”

Mohr, along with her classmates in Jenna Bracken, Kristina Miller, Emily Zwiercan, Schyler Ackerman, Kaylee Kupiec and Courtney Browning, and redshirt-sophomore Chelsea Fadio all entered the program at the same time. This class needs 13 wins next season to become the all-time winningest class in program history. They have averaged almost 17 wins a season in their three years at Kutztown.

“Coming in as freshmen, we just seemed to all click right away,” said Mohr. “Compared with other classes I thought that we were all really close, which definitely helps us on the field. The success that we’ve had in our three years is a testament to a lot of them and helps us stay so close because we want to keep pushing each other to get even better.”

To prepare, each offseason Mohr and her teammates run, lift and try to play wherever they can. Sometimes it can be even harder than the work during the fall season.

Off the pitch, Mohr has other talents, including balancing a spoon on her nose. She enjoys watching American Horror Story and playing lacrosse, but one of her passions outside of helping the KU soccer program is being around four-legged friends.

“I love dogs,” said Mohr. “I am like obsessed with them. I dog sit over the summer and watch a bunch of them. I have a cockapoo named Cooper. I like fuzzy dogs, but probably my favorite type is a pitbull.”

Mohr and the women’s soccer program soon will look to take that one last step at a championship.

Kutztown Bowling Remains Nationally-Ranked in Latest Poll

1/2/2019 | Women’s Bowling

NTCA Release (All Divisions Poll)

The Kutztown University women’s bowling team continued its presence among the nationally-ranked teams as it was voted 25th in the latest National Tenpin Coaches Association Poll, as announced last week.

The Golden Bears (31-32 overall) were voted 24th to begin the 2018-19 campaign in the preseason poll, the 11th straight year it reached the status of nationally elite.

Kutztown boasts five top-25 victories this season, three of which were against top-10 opponents. KU took down No. 7 University of Maryland Eastern Shore twice, its highest-ranked victory since Mar. 2, 2018, when it defeated No. 6 Delaware State.

Once again, the Maroon and Gold go toe-to-toe with the best of the best, ranking 12th nationally in strength of schedule. They have faced 21 opponents ranked inside the top-25 in matches this season.

Kutztown features a young lineup with no seniors. Juniors Alexis Case, Angela Kozma and Ella Luzzi are experienced leaders on the team. Sophomores Keanna Delp, Laura Hartley and Dana Henry have also contributed in the majority of KU’s matches this season. Freshmen Molly Agnello and Ashley Fister are new to the fold but have made their impacts felt. Fister earned the East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week honors in early Nov.

Kutztown returns to the lanes for the KU Invitational in Limerick on the weekend of January 18-20. A stacked field is expected as 20 of the current top-25 will be competing at the event.

Kutztown Ranks Third in PSAC’s 2018-19 Dixon Trophy Standings Through Fall Season

11/27/2018 | Field Hockey

PSAC Release | Standings

After a successful fall season for Kutztown University athletics, KU is ranked third in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference’s Dixon Trophy standings.

The Dixon Trophy is awarded at the end of each academic year to the league’s most successful program based on conference playoff and/or regular-season finish. Standings are compiled based on average score for all Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championship sports each school sponsors. Equal to its total membership, each conference sport champion is awarded 18 points and a descending point value is given for respective place finishes. The second- through last-place values vary depending on the number of teams that sponsor the sport.

The KU men averaged 14.25 points across its two fall sports, which ranked second overall. The Golden Bears football team earned a department-high 14.5 points as it won its most games (nine) since 2011, the last time it also appeared in the NCAA Tournament as it did this season. Not far behind, men’s cross country earned an average of 14 points, highlighted by its fourth-place finish at PSAC’s, the best finish for the program since the 2002 season.

Women’s soccer led the way on the other side with 14 points, followed by women’s cross country with 13, field hockey and golf each with 11 and women’s volleyball with 2.5.

The football, field hockey and women’s soccer teams all reached the postseason in a banner-fall for the Maroon and Gold.

KU finished ninth at the end of the 2017-18 season.

In its 24th year of existence, the award is named in honor of F. Eugene Dixon, Jr., former chairman of Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education’s Board of Governors. Seven different institutions have won the Dixon Trophy. SU has laid claim to the honor a league-best eight times, while WCU boasts four. Lock Haven and Bloomsburg have three titles apiece. California has two Dixon Trophy victories. KU, Slippery Rock, and Millersville have each won one Dixon Trophy.

Seven PSAC Championships will be contested in the 2018-19 winter season: men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s and women’s indoor track & field and wrestling. The next update of the Dixon Trophy standings will be released following the basketball championships in early March.
