The first full-game scrimmage for the Stetson Hatter footballers Oct. 20 developed into an offensive showcase, with the White using a field goal with 52 seconds remaining to slip past the Green, 39-36.
One of the many highlights during the upcoming Stetson Homecoming Weekend will be the Green and White Game set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at the athletic practice fields off East Minnesota Avenue. Fans are urged to wear their green and white. No tickets will be needed for the game.
SU head coach Roger Hughes was very well-pleased with the outcome of the scrimmage game, and is looking for more improvements during the Homecoming showing.
Although there were 75 points scored in the scrimmage game, there was still some solid defensive play by both teams.
The Hatter volleyballers dropped a couple of matches over the weekend at home. Kennesaw State took the first match, 25-17, 25-21, 25-23. Kaley Melville posted eight kills for SU, Monique Russell accounted for 18 digs, and Kelli Carneal and Kayla Weller had 14 and 12 assists, respectively.
Mercer followed with a 25-15, 25-20, 25-19 win. Melville led the Hats with nine kills, Weller and Carneal posted 16 and 15 assists, respectively, and Russell added 13 digs.
The Hats were to play at Jacksonville Oct. 23, and then visit Florida Gulf Coast Saturday, Oct. 27, and North Florida Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Both the SU men's and women's cross-country teams will be at the Atlantic Sun Conference Championships in Lee County at Buckingham at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27.
Over the past weekend, the Hatter women's soccer team was blanked twice on their home field. Mercer scored a 2-0 win first, improving to 6-0-2 in ASC play and 12-3-3 overall. SU keeper Victoria Troccoli had one save.
Kennesaw State notched a 3-0 win to spoil Senior Day for Kaisi Hartwick and Kristen Mueller, who played their final home match. Troccoli recorded five saves.
Things were a little brighter for the Hatter men's soccer team over the weekend on the road, as they battled Lipscomb to a double overtime, 1-1, draw. Goalie Andreas Schnabl picked up one save in the 110 minutes of play. Caleb Matthews netted the SU goal, with Jonathan Mendoza credited with the assist.
At Northern Kentucky, the hosting Norse scored a 1-0 win, with Schnabl picking up three saves. The Hats host North Florida at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, followed by East Tennessee State at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28.
