Volleyball: Four AICUO Members Qualify, None Survive Past Third Round

After defending Division III champion Wittenberg lost its third round match to Calvin (Mich.), 3-2, on Saturday, none of the four AICUO members who qualified for the tournament remain.

In the first round, held last weekend on Calvin’s Grand Rapids, Mich., campus, Wittenberg defeated fellow AICUO member Ohio Northern 3-0, Mount Union ousted Medaille (N.Y.) 3-0, and Otterbein lost to Hope (Mich.) 3-0.

The next night, Wittenberg defeated Hope 3-0 while Calvin knocked out Mount Union 3-2.

Four AICUO Members in NCAA Football Tournaments

In first-round NCAA Division III football tournament play this weekend, undefeated Mount Union, last year’s national runner-up, hosts Christopher Newport (Va.), while two AICUO members face off in the battle of the Bergs as Wittenberg travels to Heidelberg. Both games begin at noon.

By the way, there will not be an eighth consecutive Mount Union-Wisconsin-Whitewater final, as UWW lost three games during the season and did not qualify for the tournament.

Undefeated Ashland earned a bye in the first round of the NCAA Division II football tournament, and will await the winner of this weekend’s Chadron State-West Texas A&M game for a Nov. 24 second-round contest.  

Xavier, Ohio Northern Advance in NCAA Men's Soccer

Thursday night, Luke Spencer scored in the 86th minute for the game’s only score as Xavier defeated Kentucky 1-0 in the first round of the NCAA men’s soccer tournament at Lexington, Ky.

After the victory, its first ever in tournament play, Xavier travels Sunday to Bloomington, Ind., to face Indiana in a second-round match beginning at 1 p.m.

In the Division III men’s tournament, Ohio Northern plays a third-round game Saturday against Susquehanna (Pa.) in San Antonio, Texas. ONU advanced by winning two games last weekend in Pittsburgh: first, a 1-0 win over Thomas More (Ky.), then a 3-0 triumph over the host team, Carnegie Mellon.

Defending champion Ohio Wesleyan lost its first-round match in overtime to Centre (Ky.), 2-1.

Notre Dame lost its second-round match 3-2 to Rockhurst (Mo.) in the NCAA Division II tourney, after defeating Drury (Mo.) 3-0 in its opening game.

In women’s NCAA tournament play, Ohio Northern was ousted by host team Carnegie Mellon 1-0 in the tournament’s second round last Saturday. In Friday’s first-round game, ONU tied RIT (N.Y.) 1-1 and advanced by winning a penalty kick shootout 4-2. Wittenberg’s women lost in the first round to Wisconsin-Whitewater, 4-0, Nov. 9 at Wheaton, Ill.

In the NAIA tournament, on Saturday night Rio Grande's men's team hosts Aquinas (Mich.) at 6:30 p.m. in first-round action.

David King Inaugurated As President of Malone University


Although he assumed office in January, David A. King was formally inaugurated as president of Malone University on Saturday in the new Johnson Center for Worship and the Fine Arts on the Canton campus.

King was provost at Eastern University in St. Davids, Pa., in suburban Philadelphia, when selected by the search committee last fall.

He formally accepted the presidency at a convocation attended by delegates from 37 colleges and universities and one scholarly society: AICUO, represented by research director Bob Burke. The date of the event was chosen to coincide with homecoming activities, including a rainy football game against AICUO member and GLIAC rival Notre Dame, in the interest of drawing all elements of the university community for the inauguration. 

In his address, he described Malone as an “aspirational community” with “a posture of readiness, a posture of expectancy that we too — as a community — are poised for transformation.”
