Lopez Scores Twice but Warriors Fall

August 24th, 2015
Jackie Lopez scored two goals vs Northwestern Ohio.

By Kaci Mexico

In the battle between two top ten ranked teams, the number #2 Northwestern Ohio Racers defeated the #7 Westmont Warriors 3-2 in a seesaw battle.

The first goal came in the 22st minute and began with Steck receiving and holding the ball near the top of the 18 yard line. Steck played a square ball through to Lilywhite who slipped Jackie Lopez in stride down the right sideline. Lopez took a one time shot from a sharp angle 10 yards out which hit the inside of the far goal post and shot back into the goal putting the Warriors up 1-0.

The Racers answered back in the 39th minute with a goal off of a free kick on the 18 yard line by Laura Blanchard.

Just before the second half the Racers pulled ahead in the 45th minute when Vanessa Barcelleiro slipped a ball in behind the Warrior defense to Blanchard who shot low and into the corner for her second goal of the game.

Headed Home

Westmont Women's Basketball cruising the Nile

By Karlie Storkson

Day eight and nine and the beginning of 10 have been an absolute whirlwind.

Day eight was our last day of service with the Sports Outreach Institute (SOI) Gulu team. It was bittersweet as we were exhausted and ready for a break but extremely sad to say goodbye to our dear Ugandan friends.

Day nine was a travel day to the Murchison Falls Game Park. We had a boat ride down the Nile planned followed by a hike to the top of the falls. We were delayed for a bit when a thunder and lightning storm hit after we had gotten on the boat but before we had set sail. We prayed and sang and waited the storm out. And then got to go on the boat ride and see the falls. Unfortunately it was too wet and dangerous to hike to the top of the falls. At the end of the day we were able to hear Sam’s (our guide’s) testimony and have some more debriefing time.

On Day ten we went on a sunrise safari and saw elephants, giraffes and lions. Wow. We all can’t wait to share our pictures.

Warriors Jammed Up in Kampala

Westmont saw its first day of international competition on Monday as the Warriors took on the Gazelles of the Uganda National Women’s Basketball Team in a game that almost wasn’t.

The day began with the Westmont team traveling with their hosts, Sports Outreach Institute, into one of the slums of Kampala to reach out to kids.

“We split up into a couple of groups and shared stories with the kids,” said Westmont head coach Kirsten Moore. “My group got creative and acted out the story of Jonah. The kids showed us some dances that they all have been learning. ”

After a day of service and caring for kids, the team said good bye and headed off to the Lugogo Indoor Stadium for the evening’s game. That’s when the adventure took a wrong turn – or at least a very slow one.

A Sunday in Kampala for Women’s Basketball

Sunday morning in Kampala brought Westmont Women’s Basketball team more opportunities to connect with the people of Uganda, and a chance to prepare for tomorrow’s game against the Ugandan National Team.

“This morning, we stood on the new basketball court being built by Sports Outreach International’s (SOI) Kampala Ministry Center and heard Robert Katende speak about their vision to house, educate and disciple kids from the slums out at this new site,” reported Westmont head coach Kirsten Moore.

Katende is known for starting a chess club for youth in Kampala; offering a bowl of porridge to any child who would show up and learn. One of those who did was Phiona Mutesi, a teenager from the Katwe slum. Under Katende’s guidance, Mutesi eventually became the Ugandan national chess champion and has represented Uganda at international tournaments. Her story has been told in “The Queen of Katwe” by Tim Crothers, and is the subject of a Disney film by the same name to be released next year.

While Mutesi story has garnered international attention, she represents just one of thousands of youth from the slums of Kampala and elsewhere that have been touched through the SOI ministries.

Warriors Introduce Dribbling to Kampala Youth

“Most of these kids have never touched a basketball before,” said Westmont head coach Kirsten Moore in a text message from Uganda, “but they have seen it on TV so they were excited to try it.”

Moore and the Westmont Women’s Basketball team are in Uganda for a 12-day mission trip, which includes outreach in Kampala and Gulu as well as playing against the Ugandan Women’s Basketball national team.

“We all arrived safely and already are working hard to share our joy of basketball and God,” said Moore. “This morning we did a basketball clinic with some of the children in the Bwaise project. They loved the dribbling games even on uneven dirt.”

Ron Smith from Westmont College has been named the Golden State Athletic Conference Sports Information Director of the Year. This is Smith’s first Sports Information of the Year award in the second year the GSAC has had such an award.

The SID of the Year award is based on a vote of the sports information directors working at each GSAC School. The winner is decided at the annual conference SID meeting held after the conclusion of the spring seasons.

Smith began his work at Westmont in July of 2004, becoming just the second full-time Sports Information Director in the college’s history. His responsibilities include media relations, website maintenance, video broadcast production, game management, statistical services, athletic publications, social media management and serving as the athletics historian.

“Ron is also a leader amongst the SIDs in the conference,” said GSAC Commissioner Mike Daniels. “He is a professional in every sense of the word and has the best interests of the conference’s student-athletes always in mind. He has been very giving of his time for conference events and has played an integral role in the conference website for many years.”

For the sixth year in a row, Westmont Athletics has finished in the top 20 in the NAIA Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup which is administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). The 11th place finish in the final 2015 standings is the fourth highest in program history. In both 1999 and 2002, the Warriors finished in seventh place. In 1996, the inaugural year of the Directors’ Cup Award, Westmont placed 10th.

The Directors’ Cup seeks to recognize athletic programs which perform well over a variety of sports. Points are awarded based on the best finishes at the national championships by an institution’s teams. A limit of six men’s teams and six women’s teams may add to the point total.

Westmont tallied 601, just 1.5 points behind Cal State San Marcos in 10th place and 23.5 points ahead of Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) in 12th place.

A national championship runner-up finish by men’s basketball earned 90 points for the Warriors while the women’s basketball program brought in 83 points as a national championship semifinalist.
