UMSL Tritons weekly rewind
The University of Missouri–St. Louis closed out the regular season last Wednesday with a 3-1 loss at Maryville, but returned to the win column on Sunday with a 2-1 overtime victory over Drury in quarterfinal round action of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament. Junior Miriam Taylor scored the game winner 4:20 into the extra period off a pass from senior Sidney Allen. UMSL also got a goal from junior Kayla Delgado who went coast-to-coast in the first half to tie the score at 1-1. UMSL (11-3-4) advances to the GLVC Tournament semifinals on Friday at Bellarmine against the top-seeded Knights. The league’s tournament championship is slated for Sunday, also in Louisville, Ky.
UMSL came up short in its bid for a GLVC Tournament berth, closing out the season with a scoreless draw at Maryville last Wednedsay. The UMSL Tritons end the season with a 7-7-3 overall record, including a 3-3-1 GLVC mark.
The Tritons closed out a four-match homestand last weekend, falling to McKendree on Friday before bouncing back to defeat Illinois Springfield on Saturday. UMSL rallied back from a two-set deficit against McKendree, but despite having four players with double-doubles, could not complete the comeback in the 3-2 loss. The Tritons then swept the Prairie Stars on Saturday with senior Hannah Miller leading the offense with 12 kills and a .300 hitting percentage, while freshman Maddy Russell added 11 kills. UMSL (12-14, 6-7 GLVC) will play its next four matches on the road, including three this weekend, traveling to Bellarmine (Friday), Southern Indiana (Saturday) and Kentucky Wesleyan (Sunday).
The Tritons finished off their fall season in style, winning the UIS Island Getaway in Puerto Rico. UMSL had three finishers in the top five, including seniors Colby Yates and Anthony Cope and sophomore Markus Lindberg, while Junior Matt Barry tied for 13th. The Tritons shot 587, three strokes better than the runner up North Alabama. UMSL starts spring competition February 22-23 at the Newberry Invitational in Kiawah Island, S.C.
The UMSL Women’s Golf team shot a 328 at the Trevecca Fall Invite, good enough for a fourth place finish to wrap up its fall season. Sophomore Alexa Capesius earned runner-up honors individually, shooting a 77 to lead the way for the Tritons. The Tritons will open spring competition February 28-29, hosting the Last Vegas Desert Classic in Las Vegas, Nev.
