2016 Men’s and Women’s Track Preview

By: Andrew Preston The past two seasons the Trevecca men and women’s track teams both have finished no better than fourth place in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Championships (G-MAC), something head Coach Austin Selby wants to change. Winning the G-MAC in track and field for Trevecca is something that will take time to accomplish. The track teams are relatively new programs at TNU, with both the men and women’s teams beginning competition during the 2013-2014 academic school year. “We cannot (win the G-MAC), plain and simple. We are not built to win a title. We are still trying to grow and become competitive in the G-MAC,” said Selby. The TNU track teams are still relatively small in number. For comparison, in a recent track meet Cedarville University brought 68 athletes betwee...

Trojan baseball ranked no. 1 in pre-season poll

By: Andrew Preston The Trevecca men’s baseball team will begin the 2016 season with some big expectations. With five first place votes, the 2015 Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) champs are again projected to finish first in the preseason G-MAC poll. Head Coach Ryan Schmalz is planning for a big year for his team, which season begins Friday on the road at Tusculum College. “I want to play in a Division II World Series. I want to host a (NCAA Midwest) Regional and make it to the end. I want to win 40 games this year, we won 36 last year and I think 40 wins is a goal of ours,” said Schmalz. Coming off an outstanding season last year, (36-18, 21-3) the Trojans do have some big shoes to fill on the team. “We have to collectively make up for the loss of production from our big guy...

Trevecca men’s soccer takes hard loss on Saturday against Salem International

By Andrew Preston and Conner Adams The Trevecca Nazarene University men’s soccer team lost 3-2 Saturday night to Salem International. The loss was tough as their conference opponent from West Virginia eliminated them last year in the post season. The loss puts Trevecca at 3-4 (2-2) on the year while Salem improves to 4-2 (2-1). Coming off a dramatic comeback win against Ohio Valley University last Tuesday, Trevecca has now lost its last three matches. After an uneventful first half Saturday, the first goal was scored by Salem player Mohamed Ali Khalaf with the assist by Samir Anzil at 52:12 in the second half. It took Trevecca nearly 10 minutes to respond, but they scored the equalizing goal at 62:27 on a corner kick from Jordan Gilmore, that bounced off the head of one of Salem’s own pla...
