NSU men's golf in 6th at ULM/Wallace Jones Invitational

NSU briefs

CALHOUN, La. – The Northeastern State men’s golf team sits in sixth place following Monday’s opening rounds of the 2013 ULM/Wallace Jones Invitational. The tournament is being contested on the par-72 Calvert Crossing Course at Southern Pines Golf Club.

The field includes 12 NCAA Division I schools, one NCAA Division II school (Northeastern State) and one NAIA school (Oklahoma City University).

UMKC (295-311) and Sam Houston State (299-307) are tied for first at 30-over-par 606. Houston Baptist (305-308) is third at 613, Oklahoma City (303-311) is fourth at 614 and Texas-Pan American (303-313) is fifth at 616.

The RiverHawks sit in sixth after carding a 42-over 618 (313-305).

Junior Zach Tucker leads NSU after firing a two-round total of 10-over 154 (82-72). He is tied for 23rd. Senior Kyle Fouts (84-71) is one stroke behind Tucker at 155 and is tied for 29th. Fellow senior Jacob Bartel (75-82) is tied for 37th at 157, and junior Jonas Granel (78-80) is T42 at 158.

Freshman Jackson Hess (78-94) sits in a tie for 76th after shooting 172 in the first two rounds.

Oklahoma State University features the No. 14-ranked Division I program in the nation, and the Cowboys sent four individuals to the tournament. All four are in the top 20 of the individual standings after the first two rounds, with Brad Gehl tied for the lead at 1-over 145 (72-73). Sam Houston State’s Albert Miner (70-75) is also tied for first.

Bruzikova picks up second straight weekly honor

Martina Bruzikova was honored as the MIAA Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week for the second-straight week, the league announced on Monday.

The junior member of the No. 37-ranked Northeastern State women’s tennis team was 4-0 last week as the RiverHawks picked up two MIAA victories.

Bruzikova did not lose a single game in her four matches this past week. She picked up back-to-back 6-0, 6-0 victories on the third singles court and teamed with sophomore Barbora Jirickova to record two 8-0 doubles victories.

Bruzikova is on an 18-match win streak in singles and has only lost seven games combined in her last 12 singles matches (144-7).

This is the third time a RiverHawk has earned the weekly award, as freshman Kristina Savchenkov was bestowed the honor on Feb. 19.

Northeastern State is the only school to win the award three times this season, while Bruzikova is the only player in the MIAA who has won the laurel more than once.

NSU (18-2, 9-1 MIAA) will now travel to Wichita, Kan., for a 2 p.m. meeting Friday with Newman University.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
