Cardinal sports by the numbers – Oct. 19

— By Donny Nadeau,

Sports Information Director —


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

:06: Erika Thiel (Burr Ridge, Ill.) and Heidi Ledermann (Mahtomedi, Minn.) finished neck-and-neck to pace the Saint Mary’s women’s cross country team at the UW-La Crosse Tori Neubauer Invitational last Saturday, clocking 6K times of 24:41 and 24:47, respectively. Led by Theil and Ledermann, the Cardinals finished 21st as a team.

1: Emily Loof (Colorado Springs, Colo.) scored her first goal of the season 20 minutes into the second half, leading the Cardinal women’s soccer team to a 2-1 conference win over St. Olaf last Saturday.

1 x 2: Cody Balogh (Batavia, Ill.) converted the Saint Mary’s men’s soccer team’s first penalty kick of the season to account for the Cardinals’ goal in their 2-1 MIAC loss to St. Olaf last Saturday. The goal was the first of the season for Balogh.

3: The Cardinal women’s soccer team’s three goals in its 3-2 win over St. Olaf last Saturday were the most in an MIAC game since Saint Mary’s netted three in a 3-1 win over St. Catherine on Oct. 15, 2011.

6-1: With this 3-1 victory over Augsburg last Wednesday, the Saint Mary’s volleyball team improved to 6-1 in conference play and remained in second play in the MIAC standings, one game behind league-leading Gustavus (7-0). The Cardinals and Gusties square off in the final regular-season match of the season on Oct. 31 in St. Peter, Minn.

8: Eight of the Cardinal women’s soccer team’s last 10 wins—including all five victories this season—have come on their home turf.

11: Macki Fadness (Eau Claire, Wis.) delivered a team-high 11 kills in the Saint Mary’s volleyball team’s 3-1 win over Augsburg last Wednesday. Fadness has now recorded 10 or more kills in 18 of the team’s 24 matches.

12: Aubrie Cornell (Columbia, Mo.) finished with a season-high 12 saves in the Cardinal women’s soccer team’s 2-0 loss at Macalester last Tuesday—including nine in the second half. Cornell’s 12-save effort—one shy of her career high—marked the third time this season the junior goalkeeper has stopped 10 or more shots in a game.

19: Morgan Thomas (Palos Park, Ill). Recorded a season-high 19 digs in the Cardinal volleyball team’s 3-1 win over Augsburg last Wednesday. Thomas’ 19 digs were a season high and one shy of her career-best 20-dig outing against UW-La Crosse on Sept. 10, 2014.

24/20: Brittney Hanson (Janesville, Iowa) and Tayler MacVey (Dodge Center, Minn.) finished with 24 and 20 assists, respectively, to pace the Cardinal volleyball team in its 3-1 win over Augsburg last Wednesday. It was the 14th time this season Hanson has eclipsed the 20-assist mark in a match, while MacVey has accomplished that feat 11 times.

30: Jovan Newsum (Glendale, Ill.) crossed the finish line in a season-best 25:41 en route to his 30th-place showing among the 333 competitors at the UW-La Crosse Jim Drews Invitational last Saturday. Led by Newsum, the Cardinal men posted a 14th-place team finish.
