Around the NCAC

** Allegheny's volleyball and women's soccer teams leave today for a european tour. A few student-athletes from each team will blog about their experiences, which will be featured at alleghenysports.com throughout the trip.

** On July 16, Allegheny's Alex Herrnberger was signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks and assigned to the Missoula (Mont.) Osprey, a short-season league designated as rookie advanced. Through July 31, Herrnberger appeared in three games for the Osprey, the first-place team in the Pioneer North at 20-15. He is 0-for-1 with a pair of walks and has scored two runs with one RBI.

** Hiram Head Swimming and Diving Coach Jack Groselle continued his assault on the Masters' Swimming record books at the USA Swimming Sectionals held in Oxford, Ohio. He clocked a 2:05.39 in the men’s 200-yard free to lower his FINA Masters age division record in the 55-59 age group. He previously set the record with a 2:07.21 at the last sectional meet in the area held in March. He then posted a U.S. Masters Swimming national record in the 100-yard breaststroke with a mark of 1:12.84. Groselle competes this week at the U.S. Masters Swimming Nationals in Indianapolis, Ind. beginning on Thursday.

** Wittenberg's Katherine Hueter reflects on her basketball trip to the Adriatic Coast earlier this summer with USA Athletes International.

** Wittenberg will host its seventh annual Rosy's Golf Outing to honor the legacy of former Tiger student-athlete, coach and athletics department administrator Bob Rosencrans '58. Proceeds from the event, scheduled for 11 a.m. at Windy Knoll Golf Club in Springfield, will be split between the Central and Southern Ohio Chapter of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association, Driving 4 Life and Wittenberg, which will use the money to continue to make improvements in and around the Bob Rosencrans Fitness Center. Proceeds raised for the Central and Southern Ohio Chapter of the ALS Association are used for research for a cure for the deadly disease, better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Rosencrans died of ALS in 2003, just two months after the inaugural Rosy's Golf Outing.
