UMSL Tritons weekly rewind
UMSL started the season 4-0 for the first time since 1998 by winning all of its matches over the weekend at the Miner Invitational. Sophomore Charlotte Richards averaged 3.77 kills and 3.08 digs per set, while senior Selena Nolte averaged 3.92 kills per set and hit at .327 clip. Junior Kaileen Herman directed the offense with 10.64 assists per set. The Tritons travel to Detroit this weekend for four matches at the Warrior Invitational, hosted by Wayne State.
UMSL opened the season with a 3-0 win at the Academy of Art last Friday but suffered a 2-1 loss at Notre Dame de Namur on Sunday. Senior Magnus Andersen, last year’s leading scorer, scored a goal in each game. The Tritons will close out their nonconference schedule on Thursday at Upper Iowa before opening Great Lakes Valley Conference play on the road Sunday at new league member Lindenwood.
The Tritons dropped two road games to open the season, falling 1-0 to Concordia-St. Paul and 3-1 to Saginaw Valley State. Sophomore Imogen Bennett scored her first collegiate goal in the loss to SVSU, tying the game in the 32nd minute. UMSL begins GLVC play on Sunday at Lindenwood.
Fueled by a strong first round, UMSL opened the 2019-20 season by winning the Arch Cup last Tuesday, putting together a team score of 579 (282-297) and edging runner-up Drury by two strokes in the eight-team event. The Tritons had two players finish in the top five individually, including sophomore Juan Antonio Padilla, who shot a career-best 140 (68-72) to tie for second place, one stroke behind the medalist. UMSL returns to the links September 23-24 at the Findlay Fall Tournament in Findlay, Ohio.
