The Golden Eagles hosted Goshen College tonight and they got a quick start. Tori Johns played a give and go with Kerri Hoffman around the top of the box and a defender poked the ball away but right to Lexie Brisson-Fast that cut the ball by her defender and then slid the ball under the GK with 39:28 left in the half. Brisson-Fast scored her second goal of the game with about 6 minutes left in the half. She got a ball played over the top and the defender misplayed the ball and Brisson-Fast hit a volley past the GK to make it 2-0. Lexie made it 3-0 with just over 4 minutes left in the half. Teigan Mitcham laid a ball out to Jessica Erny who hit a one time cross to Brisson-Fast for a header into the right side of the goal. Cornerstone would go on to outshoot the Maple Leafs 20-2 on the game but wouldn't finid the back of the net again. The Golden Eagles move to 4-0-2 on the season. Cornerstone will have the weekend off and will return to action next Tuesday when they take on Rochester in Pontiac at Ultimate Soccer Arena at 3:00 p.m.
Softball player Heidi Walburg honored by the NAIA at the Dr. LeRoy Walker Award. Walburg played four seasons for the Golden Eagles and was a 2-time All-American. Walburg led the Golden Eagles to the NAIA Tournament last season.
Walburg's award honors Dr. LeRoy Walker, former NAIA President and President Emeritus of the United States Olympic Committee and recognizes a junior or senior student-athlete who has embraced the five core values of the NAIA Champions of Character program and demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, campus and community leadership, athletic achievement and future ambition.
Walburg is a three-time NAIA All-American on the softball field and a two-time Daktronics NAIA Scholar-Athlete. She excelled both in the classroom and on the playing field for the Golden Eagles. She holds school records in home runs and RBIs, and was the Cornerstone (Mich.) offensive player of the year for four-straight seasons. Walburg was a humble team captain who loves, respects and cares for her teammates, and was willing to put in the hard work to be the best she could be, according to the NAIA release.
(Grandville, Mich.) Cornerstone hosted WHAC Jamboree #2 today at Sunnybrooke County Club. Cornerstone finished 8th overall with a team total of 318 shots. Senior Sam Vos and Junior Tyler Coyne led the Golden Eagles with scored of 75 to tie for 7th place overall. Sophomore Noah Wildeman finished with an 83 to tie for 41st. Senior Chris Wisen shot and 85 to round of the scoring for the Golden Eagles. Will Clarke also shot an 86 but only the top four scores were counted in the team score. Davenport won the event with a score of 296. Cornerstone will return to action on Sept. 27th when they travel to Adrian for the next WHAC Jamboree #3 hosted by Siena Heights at Lenawee Country Club.
(Grand Rapids, Mich.) Cornerstone senior, Louis Falland cruised to a convincing win at the Knight Invitational hosted by Calvin College. The overnight rain and the preceding women's race turned sections of the 8 kilometer course in to slick mud, slowing times at the usually fast Gainey Athletic Complex.
Running with the leaders from the start, Falland moved to the front after three miles and held the lead to the finish, winning by six seconds in 25:06. The only real drama in the race came when the lead vehicle got stuck twice and required the help of spectators to get it moving before the runners caught up.
Senior, Jared Holmberg paced a pair of freshmen. Holmburg placed 87th in 27:22 with Kevin Vroegh (98th / 27:30) and Brent Dunn (109th / 27:39) close behind. Sophomore, Jacob Benson completed the team scoring taking 156th in 28:19.
Calvin won with 55 points ahead of two top ranked NAIA teams – St. Francis (Ill) with 79 and Aquinas at 109. Cornerstone took eleventh with 303 points.
(Grand Rapids, Mich.) Led by senior Julie Oosterhouse's fifth place finish, the Cornerstone Golden Eagles placed fifth out of 25 teams at Calvin College Knight Invitational.
A cool 48 degree morning followed a night of steady rain and the usually fast course ran slower than usual as the 292 runners churned the corners into mud over the repeating loops in the first two miles.
Oosterhouse positioned herself at the back of the lead pack then used a 5:48 final mile to move into fifth, clocking 18:24. Sophomore Cathy Coryell raced well finishing 27th in 19:13.
CU's third through sixth finishers were just nine seconds apart with senior, CallyAnne Wyma heading the pack (49th / 19:41) with Audrey Tremaine (53rd / 19:46), Ally Rabe (54th / 19:45 and Joy Reist (61st / 19:50) right behind.
Calvin took the team title with 27 points followed by St. Francis of Illinois with 109, Aquinas at 124, Case Western 135 and Cornerstone 170.
