Luis Green snags SCAC Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award(Seguin) - Texas Lutheran freshman Luis Green, a forward from Monterrey, Mexico, has been selected the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for matches played from Monday, September 3rd through Sunday, September 9th.
Green led TLU to a pair of victories last week, including the Bulldogs' SCAC opener against Centenary College. In their non-conference win against Howard Payne, Green scored and added an assist as TLU ranged up seven goals, the most in a single game since 2010 for the Bulldogs.
The freshmen then accounted for all three goals in the Bulldogs, 3-2, SCAC victory against Centenary. All three goals were unassisted. For the week, Green finished with four goals and one assist for nine total points.
TLU's Rynard, Calderon collect top-7 finishes at UIS Prairie Stars Invitational
(Sprinfield, Ill.) - Texas Lutheran Cross Country runners Ashley Rynard and Caleb Calderon collected top-seven individual finishes Friday evening at the University of Illinois-Springfield Prairie Stars Invitational.
Rynard finished fourth overall in the four-kilometer race. She crossed the finish line in 16 minutes, 14.43 seconds. UIS runner Taryn Christy won the race in a time of 15:40.64.
Calderon came home in seventh in the six-kilometer men's race. He posted a time of 21:22.18. UIS runner Tyler Pasley took the top spot with a time of 20:41.78.
Calderon's time broke the school record for a 6K cross country race. The old school mark of 22:05 was set by Blake Westbrook.
"It was pouring at the race," said Darlene Holland, TLU's head coach for women's and men's cross country. "It was super muddy and slippery. I was so proud of how they both raced given the conditions. Their times don't really indicate the great races each of them ran."
Rynard and Calderon, both juniors, were the only runners to compete for TLU at the UIS invitational meet.
UIS Head Coach Scott Slade is in his first year as the head coach of the Prairie Stars, and he is the husband of Holland. Slade has been a volunteer assistant coach with the Bulldogs in recent years.
Rynard and Calderon will join their teammates next Saturday in the TLU Bulldog Invitational, which will take place on the TLU campus.
