The Weekly Forecast
PioSphere Reporter Josh Landry
Pioneer Performance: This week’s award is a bit unorthodox but nonetheless impressive; Transylvania had four student athletes named to the HCAC All-Academic Team for the Winter 2012 semester, which requires a 3.5 GPA or above. The four chosen were Kayla Dobson (Basketball), Elizabeth Hardt (Track and Field), Lydia Lissanu (Women’s Swimming), and Ben Lyvers (Track and Field). Congratulations go to the Pioneers who perform both on and off the field.
Matchup of the Week: This Tuesday at 4 p.m. the men’s tennis tream travels to Centre College, while the women’s team will host the Colonels at Transy in the only matchup against Centre for both teams this season. After a win over Franklin College on Saturday, the 3-4 men’s team will have a chance to bring themselves up to .500 against their rivals, while the women’s team can pull back above .500 after a rough spring break road trip.
Player to Watch: Early into their inaugural season, the women’s lacrosse team will travel to Danville on Wednesday for their first rivalry game against the Centre Colonels. Five games into the season, Freshman Aubrey Bausum is leading the Pioneers offensively, averaging seven goals per game. Look for this trend to continue on Wednesday at 6 p.m. if the Pioneers are to keep from falling to an even 3-3 on the season.
