Cardinal sports by the numbers – Sept. 21

— By Donny Nadeau,

Sports Information Director —


WINONA, Minn. — It’s time to take one final look back at the highlights of the week that was — by the numbers.

3: Jenna Sullivan (Woodbury, Minn.) recorded her third double-double of the season vs. Ripon, collecting 12 kills and 11 digs in the Cardinal volleyball team’s 3-0 win over the Red Hawks last Saturday at the Ripon Red Hawk Invitational.

3: Blake Westerberg (Red Wing, Minn.) placed tied for third out of 110 golfers at the Saint John’s Invitational last weekend. Westerberg opened the two-day event with a three-over-par 75 on Saturday, and followed that up with an even-par 72—one shot off his collegiate low round—in Sunday’s final round.

3: Jim Dreshar (Hugo, Minn.) scored his team-leading third goal of the season in the Cardinal men’s soccer team’s loss to Saint John’s last Saturday. Dreshar, who scored two goals in 16 games a year ago, has now recorded at least one point in four of the Cardinals’ six games this season.

3: Macki Fadness (Eau Claire, Wis.) was named to the Ripon Red Hawk Invitational All-Tournament Team. It was the third time in three regular-season volleyball tournaments that the Cardinal senior has been named to the all-tournament team.

5: With his third-place showing at the Saint John’s Invitational, Blake Westerberg has now recorded five top-10 finishes for the Cardinal men’s golf team this season.

5: The Saint Mary’s volleyball team ran its winning streak to a season-high five straight last week. The Cardinals has lost just one set during its five-match run—sweeping St. Catherine (twice), UW-River Falls, and Ripon, while beating St. Norbert 3-1.

9: Aubrie Cornell (Columbia, Mo.) recorded nine saves in the Cardinal women’s soccer team’s 1-0 conference-opening loss to defending MIAC champion and 19th-ranked Augsburg last Tuesday. It was the second straight game in which Cornell made nine saves—the junior stopped nine Carroll shots in Saint Mary’s 2-1 nonconference win on Sept. 12.

10-2: With their 4-0 showing at the Ripon Red Hawk Invitational, the Cardinal volleyball team has now gone 10-2 in their three regular-season tournaments this season.

20+: Brittney Hanson (Janesville, Iowa) recorded 20 or more assists in three of the Cardinal volleyball team’s four matches at the Ripon Red Hawk Invitational last weekend—including 25 against St. Norbert, 21 vs. St. Catherine and 23 against Ripon. Hanson now has a team-leading nine matches of 20 assists or more this season.

21:22.8: Heidi Lederman (Mahtomedi, Minn.) recorded a career-best five-kilometer time of 21:22.8 in leading the Cardinal women’s cross country team to an 18th-place team finish at the National Catholic Championships last Friday in South Bend, Ind.

27:00.8: Jovan Newsum (Glendale Heights, Ill.) enjoyed a banner day for the Saint Mary’s men’s cross country team at the National Catholic Championships last Friday in South Bend, Ind., posting a team-best five-mile time of 27.00.8 in sparking the Cardinals to a ninth-place finish.

36: Lex Krogstad (Chicago, Ill.) equaled her career high with 36 digs in the Saint Mary’s volleyball team’s 3-1 win over St. Norbert at the Ripon Red Hawk Invitational last Friday. Krogstad, who also recorded 36 digs against UW-Stout on Oct. 13, 2012, finished the four-match Ripon tourney last weekend with 115 digs and earned all-tournament honors.

182: Kaitlin Kling (LeRoy, Minn.) carded rounds of 94-88 for a 182 total to lead the Cardinal women’s golf team at the D3 Classic last Saturday and Sunday at The Jewel in Lake City, Minn.
