  • Defense dominates as Wabash runs over Allegheny
    Sunday, September 20, 2015 10:37 PM

    Wabash recorded six sacks and held Allegheny to 56 yards of total offense in a 54-0 road victory for the Little Giants Saturday. Wabash ran for seven touchdowns in the shutout.

    The ninth-ranked Little Giants ran for 290 yards and threw for 239 in the lopsided North Coast Athletic Conference opener.

AJ Clark led the team with eight stops, including two tackles for losses totaling four yards. Wabash held the Gators (0-3, 0-2 NCAC) to minus-36 yards rushing on 25 carries.

    Allegheny completed 12-of-26 pass attempts for the majority of their yards, but also tossed three interceptions. CJ McMann returned the last pick 56 yards to set up a one-yard Matt Gibson touchdown. Delon Pettiford stepped in front of a Logan Lee pass in the second quarter that Michael Putko converted into a score on a six-yard run. Eddie Cmehil hauled in a pass tipped by Austin Brown for the third pick

    Freshman Nikola Kajmakoski tallied a pair of goals Friday night to give Wabash soccer a 2-0 victory at Hanover College.

    The Little Giants improve to 7-0 with the victory. Last season Wabash played 12 consecutive games without suffering a loss, but opened the season with five consecutive victories before notching a pair of ties. This year's Wabash team set a new school record with its seventh straight win to open the season and are two victories shy of tying the 1986 team's record of nine consecutive victories in a season.

    Kajmakoski scored his second goal of the season in the 13th minute. Mike Gore slipped a pass to the rookie, who beat the Hanover (2-4) goalkeeper on a one-on-one attempt. A foul by the host Panthers in the 31st minute put Kajmakoski over the ball with a direct free kick, which he converted for the insurance goal.

    Wabash placed five runners in the top-14 spots and six in the top-20 to capture the Indiana Little State men's cross country title for the third straight season.

    The Red Pack scored 44 points to edge sixth-ranked Division II's University of Southern Indiana by a single point. The Little Giants entered the meet ranked 12th nationally and number one in the Great Lakes Region in the first official DIII US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll.

    Southern Indiana captured first, third, and fifth places but could not place its fourth runner ahead of the pack of five Little Giants. Fabian House led the way for Wabash, crossing the line in fourth place with a time of 26:13.6. Adam Togami finished seventh with a time of 26:26.7 over the 8,000-meter loop at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country course in Terre Haute, Indiana.

    A second-half goal by Spase Dorsuleski provided all the scoring the Wabash soccer team would need in its 1-0 win Wednesday night over Rose-Hulman.

    Junior goalkeeper Dayton Jennings turned aside a pair of shots on goal to post the fifth shutout of the season for the team. The Little Giants (6-0) have allowed only one goal this year, a shot that found the back of the net one week earlier in a 2-1 victory over Earlham. Wabash outshot the Fightin' Engineers 10-2 in attempts on goal.

    "Our guys don't like giving up goals," Wabash head coach Chris Keller said. "They have heart. More than anything we're playing smart defensively. We're playing strong. We're doing whatever it takes by throwing any part of our body at a shot or pass to keep that ball from going into the net. It's been 50 percent tactical and 50 percent heart. "

    How does the Wabash College soccer team improve on a record-setting 2014 season? By continuing to work on fundamentals, execution, and playing together as a team in 2015.

    The Little Giants set a new record for victories in a season with a 13-3-3 mark last year, including wins over a pair of nationally ranked opponents. Wabash set another record by playing 12 consecutive matches without a loss to open the season before dropping a 2-0 decision to national semifinalist Ohio Wesleyan. The Little Giants completed the North Coast Athletic Conference portion of the schedule with a record of 6-2-1 to place third in the standings and earn the team's first berth in the league tournament.

  • Assistant coach leaves Wabash baseball
    Monday, August 03, 2015 9:04 PM

    Assistant baseball coach Will Vazquez will be leaving the Wabash baseball team after spending his whole life surrounded by the game.

    Vazquez was a catcher for Kent State and played on five different minor league teams for the Red Sox before coming to Wabash to coach.

    His wife was from Crawfordsville and he spent his off season working out at Wabash. This is when Vazquez and head coach Cory Stevens met.

    Stevens said the timing worked out because his former assistant was leaving and Vazquez was looking to get out of professional baseball.

  • Wabash Wins Fifth Straight NCAC Title
    Wednesday, May 06, 2015 12:22 AM
    DELAWARE, Ohio -- The Wabash track and field team won its record-tying fifth straight North Coast Athletic Conference Championship Saturday. Denison won five straight from 1985-89 as did Allegheny from 2002-07.

    The Little Giants finished with 256.50 points, followed by Ohio Wesleyan at 193 and DePauw at 80. Oberlin (66.50), Wittenberg (65), Allegheny (61), Denison (41), Wooster (30) and Kenyon (22) rounded out the NCAC field.

    "This is special because there are only two other programs that have won five consecutive men's outdoor titles," Wabash head coach
    Clyde Morgan said. "That's pretty elite company to join, which makes the accomplishment pretty special. But we've really gone into each season focused on winning that title, not what we did last year. I'm not really sure this accomplishment will hit the guys until sometime this summer. We'll go right from this meet to competing at final qualifying meets before heading to nationals, so there's not really much time to take this in until after the season ends the last weekend in May. There's just not time to reflect on the past few years until the season is over.
