[MUSIC PLAYING] Welcome to the Southern New
Hampshire University Week in Review, where we
recap the past week’s events in Penmen Athletics. [MUSIC PLAYING] Men’s golf opened the week
with a fifth place finish at the Trojan, which was
hosted by the University of Mount Olive at the
Walnut Creek Country Club. The Penmen turned out
a team score of 627 to slide in just four shots
outside the top three. Matt Paradis led
Southern New Hampshire with a two-day score of 154 to
check in at number 18 overall. Garret Olivar was right behind
Paradis with a total of 156, while Ryan Anderson and Matt
Conti carded a 160 and 162 respectively. Men’s golf returns
to action Saturday when it heads to the
Assumption Spring Invitational at the Blackstone
National Golf Club. To the diamond we
go, where softball turned in a perfect 7
and 0 week to run its win streak to 19 consecutive games. Southern New Hampshire
dispatched Franklin Pierce University on Monday, 22 to 1,
before sweeping double headers from Saint Michael’s
College, Pace University, and Adelphi University. Erin Garczynski turned in a
monster week for the Penmen as she hit 471 over the
seven-game stretch with two home runs, two doubles, eight
RBI, and nine runs scored. Freshman Emily Carbonneau
also turned in a standout week at the plate with
three homers and 10 RBI. Maddy Barone
dominated the circle with four wins, which extended
her own personal and beaten streak to 14 games. She allowed just two earned runs
over the course of 27 innings and struck out 25
hitters in the process. Softball is back
in action Wednesday when it heads to Franklin Pierce
for an NE10 twin bill slated to start at 3:00 PM. Shifting diamonds
to baseball now, where the seventh-ranked Penmen
posted a 5-1 mark last week. Southern New Hampshire took
down Franklin Pierce Tuesday by a final score of
5 to 2 before walking off against Southern Connecticut
State University 5 to 4 on Friday. The Penmen closed out their
week with a Saturday sweep of St. Rose before
splitting the Sunday twin bill against Le Moyne. Jake Walkinshaw was masterful
on the mound for Southern New Hampshire as he picked
up a pair of wins while allowing three
runs and 16 innings. Walkinshaw fired seven
solid innings Tuesday against the Ravens,
giving him a pair of runs while fanning five. And he closed out his week with
a complete game 13 strikeout performance in a 2 to
1 win over Le Moyne. Tom Blandini shouldered the load
offensively with a 360 average at the top of the SNHU lineup. Blandini connected on a pair
of homers, drove in five, and scored five
runs for the Penmen, who sit atop the Northeast-10
Conference’s Northeast Division. Baseball is back
in action Thursday when it heads to St. Michael’s
College for a 3:30 PM start. To the turf we go,
where women’s lacrosse dropped the pair
of NE10 contests against Stonehill College
and Assumption College. Southern New Hampshire fell
out at home to the Skyhawks 15 to 12 Tuesday before
a furious second half rally fell short Friday
against the Greyhounds. Kristin Wilder scored four
times against Stonehill and became the program’s
all-time leader in points scored as she eclipsed
the 255-point plateau. Alexis Felt that in 4 points
on three goals and an assist, while Merry Harrington chipped
in with a pair of scores and a helper. Friday saw Felt notch her 100th
career goal on the 22 to 19 setback to Assumption. Wilder went out for six
goals, while Erin Gorton netted 5 points on a
hat trick into assist. Trailing 20 to 12 late,
the Penmen won on a 7 to 1 run to trim the
deficit to a pair with 3 minutes left to
play, but it was as close as they would come to pulling
even with the Greyhounds. Harrington netted a
season high of four goals, while Kelsey Long had two goals
and two assists for 4 points. Women’s lacrosse aims to
get back on track Wednesday when it hosts the University
of New Haven at 3:30. On the men’s side,
Southern New Hampshire also fell out on two games
last week, both of which were road contests at Bentley
University and Merrimack College. The Penmen stumbled
against the Falcons Tuesday by a score of
14 to 5 before being stymied by the fourth
ranked Warriors, 16 to 9. Tom Schutz on the
offense with two goals Tuesday, while Mason
Barchard was the other Penmen to record multiple points
with a goal and assist. Saturday saw Schutz
score twice and assist on two other goals for
Southern New Hampshire, and the loss of the
defending national champions. Chris Valentine had two
goals for the Penmen in front of Neal
Murray, who stopped a career high of 21 shots. Men’s lacrosse looks to
snap at the six-game slide Wednesday when it
welcomes St. Michael’s to Penmen Stadium at 7:00 PM. Men’s tennis rolled
to three wins last week to extend its
winning streak to seven. Southern New Hampshire posted
three consecutive shouts and victories over St.
Michael’s, Franklin Pierce, and Endicott College. Tiago Fernandes
and Faizan Khalid posted 6-1, 6-love wins at
number one and number six singles. And the remaining
four singles flights were 6-love, 6-love wins
for Southern New Hampshire against the Purple
Knights Wednesday. After winning a
love-love on Wednesday, Willem Van Biezen won his second
singles flight 6-love, 6, 4 to highlight Southern New
Hampshire’s win over the Ravens Saturday. Fernandes won 6-1,
6-4 at number one while the rest of the Penmen
cruised to straight set wins. Sunday saw Fernandes pull
out a 6-love, 6-love win in the top singles flight,
while Willem and Bas Van Biezen won their doubles match
6-love against the Gulls. Men’s tennis continues
its scheduled Tuesday when it hosts Bentley
University at 3:00 PM. Women’s track and field
wrapped up the week by capturing the inaugural
Penmen Spring Invitational. Ashley Elder swept
the throws with wins in the shotput, discus,
and hammer throw to lead Southern New Hampshire. Alanna Murphy also picked up
a win in the 100-meter hurdles before capturing the 400-meter
hurdles to close her day. Southern New Hampshire will
host its second consecutive meet Saturday when it opens
its doors for the Second Annual Penman Relays. That’s it for this week’s
