ICYMI: Dusing shines in NCAA Track and Field Championship

By early June, many RedHawks began to work, travel, or start the Summer Semester. Recent graduate Andrew Dusing kicked off his summer by heading out west. More specifically, out west to the Historic Hayward Field at the University of Oregon.   Dusing had serious business in Eugene, OR. He was set to race at the NCAA Division 1 Outdoor Track and Field Championship, against some of the NCAA’s finest runners in the 1500 meters.   It was most definitely a job well-done, as Andrew Dusing would run a time of three minutes and 44.56 seconds to secure a sixth place finish in the 1500 meters finals.   Dusing attained First-Team All-American status by bringing home three points for the Red and White, the first time since 2006 that a Miami male scored in the meet.   To make it into the finals, Dusing made a tremendous effort. Prior to NCAA’s, his personal best was three minutes and 45 seconds, more than seven seconds slower than fellow competitor Craig Engels from the University of Mississippi.   The 1500 meters has two preliminary heats prior to the final — the twelve fastest times will move on to the next round. Dusing ended up in the faster heat, which propelled him past the winners of the second heat.   Dusing held onto the pack and through his strong running, he was able...

‘Herd hounds RedHawks in season opener

  Redshirt junior quarterback Gus Ragland threw for 298 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough for Miami football to beat Marshall University. Marshall (1-0) — after reclaiming the lead near the end of the second quarter — saw victory to the end, defeating Miami football (0-1) by a score of 31-26 in Huntington, WV. Despite the season-opening defeat, there was a slew of silver-linings to the match, said head coach Chuck Martin. “There was a heck of a lot of positives. Our defense wasn’t on the field enough, unfortunately, because they [Marshall] kept scoring with our defense...

Football returns to the field

Despite falling short, playing in the St. Petersburg Bowl last December painted a promising picture of what was to come for Miami football. In the last six seasons, the anticipation—the palpable excitement coming into a season—has never been greater than it has for the 2017-18 season. Nine starters return to a defense that ranked inside the 2017 NCAA Top 25 at the end of the 2016-17 campaign. The efficient, redshirt junior quarterback Gus Ragland officially takes the reins of an offense that returns eight named to the first-team. “Kids worked hard for about nine months, in the offseason, and...

Fall sports preview: soccer, volleyball, field hockey

Several of Miami University’s varsity sports teams were hard at work before students began returning to campus. After several weeks of practice and several games played, soccer, volleyball and field hockey look forward to the rest of their seasons. Now, as students start classes, these teams start their runs towards Mid-American Conference play and strive for championships. Soccer Miami’s soccer team spent the month of August preparing for the two exhibitions and four non-conference games they have played. The team started their season with interim head coach Hugh Seyfarth after former head coach Bobby Kramig suddenly announced his resignation and retirement on Aug. 4. Seyfarth has coached the team to an 0 wins-4 losses-0 ties record (0-2-0 at home, 0-2-0 away) and stresses professionalism and execution as ways to improve. Seyfarth expects his players to demonstrate professionalism by being ready to play, reading the game well, understanding how to start on time and by being deliberate. “Of course, we want to win games and do all that, but I think we have to improve every day we train,” Seyfarth said. “Every game we play, we’re trying to get better.” Last year, the team ended the season 8-9-2 overall and 5-4-2 in the MAC. This year, the team opened with a 3-0 loss to St. Louis University on Aug. 18, then the RedHawks didn’t allow more than two goals in...
