This Sunday November 5 at 2 p.m., the basketball RedHawks take on the Maryville Saints in an exhibition at Millett Hall. This matchup marks the first ever meeting between these two programs and will provide a preview for ‘Hawks fans of what can be expected from RedHawk basketball in the upcoming season. Many may not be familiar with Maryville University, a small Division III school from St. Louis, MO. After a 9-21 season last year, the Saints hired Marc Stricker, a St. Louis native and formerly an assistant at Oral Roberts University. With this new hire, the Saints are in a similar spot with the ’Hawks — both teams will experience growing pains under new coaches but are undoubtedly excited for this pre-season test against one another. This matchup will also provide an early test for new Miami head coach Jack Owens. Last season, Miami went a disappointing 11-21 but were 10-8 at home. Six freshmen and three transfers join the six returning ’Hawks in hopes to generate offensive chemistry. Keep an eye on senior forward Logan McLane, who averaged 11.8 points per game last season, and led the RedHawks with 6.5 rebounds per...Read More
The postseason begins for Miami cross country teams at home on October 28th for the Mid-American Conference Championship. With a promising regular season, the question lies ahead how the RedHawks stack up against the best of the MAC. In last year’s race at Kent State University, the women finished seventh with 145 points and an average time of 22 minutes and 14 seconds. Now-senior Maria Scavuzzo led the team by placing fifth individually with her time of 21 minutes and ten seconds. Yet, there is reason to be optimistic due to the strides over one season. This year, ten runners have times faster 23 minutes in the six-kilometer, where last year there was only seven. Noticeable improvements have come from sophomore Carly Davis and senior Sarah Starrett, which were seen mainly at the NCAA Division I Pre-Nationals. Davis ran a personal best by over 25 seconds in her first race leading the RedHawks, while Starrett — the team’s fourth finisher — set a personal best by over 30 seconds. As for racing at home, Starrett believes it will give them an advantage. “We’re all ready for a great race on a course we know and love,” she said. “We’ve worked out on this course many times so we shouldn’t be surprised in any way and as long as we remember to race as a team, I think we’ll be...Read More
Miami University and the Miami Tribe have announced a new collaborative awareness platform, beginning this month. The agreement, which centers around a jointly designed logo, was officially signed on Oct. 21 by University President Greg Crawford and Miami Tribe Chief Douglas Lankford. Both were present for a ceremonial coin toss before Miami’s football game against Buffalo to celebrate. The goal of the collaboration is to shine light on the rich history of the tribe and the university’s relationship with it, which remains widely unknown to the general public. The relationship between the university and tribe started in the 1970s...Read More
In commanding fashion, the Miami University field hockey team defeated Central Michigan 4-0 on Friday to clinch the MAC championship and an undefeated conference-play record (5-0). The Chippewas fell to 0-16 on the year while the RedHawks remain .500 (8-8) after falling to No. 3 Virginia on Sunday 4-0. Miami’s perfect play in conference earns them the No. 1 seed in the MAC conference tournament. MU will also be hosting the tournament next year because of their success this season. “It’s an incredible feeling as anyone can imagine, especially getting [the MAC championship] at home with our fans,” senior...Read More
The RedHawks should be flying high following a victorious weekend at home. Continuing conference play, Miami hosted Central Michigan on Friday afternoon and battled Eastern Michigan on Sunday. Entering the weekend without a win, and only a single point on the season, the Red and White were desperate to keep their hopes of a MAC Tournament berth alive. Pulling away with 2-1 and 3-2 overtime victories, they saved their season, for the time being. For much of the first half on Friday, fans were treated to a defensive stalemate. Still without injured sophomore midfielder Olivia Winnett, the RedHawks...Read More
