UMSL Tritons weekly rewind
The University of Missouri–St. Louis men’s golf team moved up to No. 13 in the Bushnell/Golfweek NCAA Division II Coaches Poll after beating Henderson State in a playoff last Tuesday at the Missouri Southern State University Fall Invitational at Shangri-La Country Club in Monkey Island, Oklahoma, to secure its second tournament victory of the fall schedule. Juan Antonio Padilla and Ian McCrary finished tied for fourth overall with 54-hole totals of 213 to lead the Tritons. Padilla shot a final-round 65 and was named Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week. Cyril Henault finished in a three-way tie for 10th. UMSL is back on the course today and tomorrow as it hosts the Midwest Regional at Panther Creek Golf Club in Springfield, Illinois.
The Tritons earned a pair of victories on the road last week, sweeping Rockhurst 25-23, 25-14, 33-31 on Friday in Kansas City and securing a 25-23, 25-17, 22-25, 25-18 victory over Southwest Baptist on Saturday in Bolivar, Missouri. All-American outside hitter Charlotte Richards had a team-high 17 kills against the Hawks but was held in check with only nine kills against the Bearcats. Hannah Copeland, Hailey Flowers and Lexie Rang picked up the slack with 13, 12 and 11, kills respectively. Caitlin Bishop combined for 74 assists in UMSL’s two victories. The Tritons (12-4, 5-1 GLVC) will be back home this weekend to face Drury on Friday and Missouri S&T on Saturday.

UMSL’s swimming teams opened their 2022-23 season with triangular meets against Saint Louis University and Bellarmine at the Simon Rec Center on the SLU campus. The men’s team defeated Saint Louis University 123-103 and Bellarmine 162-61 while the women split, beating Bellarmine 141-69 but falling to the Billikens 151-75. Jon Osa and Conley Savage each won two individual events for the Tritons and were each part of a winning relay team. All-American Zara Konstapel won the 100 breast and was a member of the winning 200 medley relay team. Both teams will next face Lewis on Oct. 14 at the Mark Twain Athletic Center.
The Tritons bounced back from a 2-1 road loss at Rockhurst on Friday night to beat Southwest Baptist 2-1 on Sunday at Don Dallas Field. Jalyn Richardson and Candice Parziani each scored less than three minutes apart in the second half to give UMSL a 2-0 lead against the visiting Bearcats, and it hung on to win with Paige Schwartz making two saves. Cammie Robinson scored the lone Tritons goal on Friday night to cut Rockhurst second-half lead to 2-1, but UMSL couldn’t pull even. The Tritons (5-5-1, 3-3-1) will visit Missouri S&T on Friday and Drury on Sunday.
UMSL snapped a four-game winless streak with a 3-1 victory against Southwest Baptist on Sunday afternoon at Don Dallas Field after stumbling 1-0 on the road against Rockhurst on Friday. Tommy Naumann scored the game-winner in the 54th minutes and added an assist on Jack Meuse‘s goal in the 70th minute, which sealed the victory against the Bearcats. Gabe Stanislawski also scored in the win after the Tritons were shut out on 11 shots against the Hawks. Austin Reis combined for six saves in the two matches. UMSL (4-5-2, 3-3-1) will play road matches against Missouri S&T on Friday and Drury on Sunday.
The Tritons competed at the SIUE Invitational over the weekend, going 7-8 in singles matches against Division I opponents SLU, SIUE and Lindenwood.
