Manchesterís Master of Athletic Training

As students in Manchester University’s fourth Master of Athletic Training class begin coursework this month, optimism is high for the program’s early track record and prospects for expansion.

The degree is designed for students who did not major in athletic training as an undergraduate. While every athletic training master’s degree (MAT) gives graduates clinical, hands-on experiences, Manchester is unique for its added emphasis on training future teachers and researchers in the field. Each student in the two-year program completes a personal research project and teaches undergraduates.

“We want our graduates to be well-rounded candidates for athletic trainer positions,” says Mark Huntington, associate dean for academic affairs and director of the master’s program. “Gaining clinical, research and teaching experience is the advantage of attending a small school like Manchester.”

Monce pitches 15 and 16 All-star team to district title

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash 15 and 16- year-old all-star team was taking on Peru in a best of three series for the district title this weekend. After a convincing 10-0 win on the back of pitcher Nate Hembree Friday, Wabash was primed to take the title Saturday. With pitcher Remington Monce throwing bullets, Wabash cruised to an 11-0 win for the title.

Being the visitors on the scoreboard, Wabash wasted no time getting Monce a lead, scoring two runs in the first. With Kody Fuller calling the pitches, Monce was untouchable as he scattered just two hits in the shutout.

Wabash would go on to score two runs in the third, one in the fourth, one in the fifth, one in the sixth and four in the seventh to seal the deal.

The Wabash 13 and 14-year-old all-star team was taking on Peru in the best two out of three for the district title this past weekend. After winning a close 7-6 game on Friday, Wabash turned on the jets Saturday, using two big innings in a 23-3 win to claim the title.

Down 3-2 heading to the third, starting pitcher Kory Fuller found his groove to shut down Peru, letting his offense do the work in the bottom of the inning. Wabash collected nine hits in the inning, taking advantage of walks and Peru errors to plate 12 runs to take a commanding 14-3 lead.

Norse repeat bid falls short

by Gary Andrews

Most teams never make it to the state championship. The Northfield baseball team was one win away Saturday, June 15, from a shot at winning back-to-back state championships. The 2012 state champions were taking on South Spencer, who was the 2011 state champs. Without the services of first baseman Joseph Ross, who reported to the Army after the semi-state, plus knowing it would be the last game Norse coach Tony Uggen would coach at Northfield after announcing he was taking the athletic director and baseball job at Blackford, one would wonder what the effects would be.

The usual hard hitting Norse would collect just four hits in the game, while starting pitcher Ryan Keaffaber would struggle as South Spencer pulled off the upset in a 3-2 win over Northfield for the state title.
