In her first four years as head coach, she has had 3 First Team Big – Ten players which is more than the 2001-2007 seasons combined!  She continues to bring a new attitude to this team as well as grabbing some wins along the way.

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned the Penn State Series and how the team had done so far in the season.

The video posted below gives a current update which includes information about their series win over Penn State and there upcoming series here in Bloomington for the Crimson and Gold Cup.

Earlier this year, I did blog post on Sherry Dunbar and the IU Volleyball Team which is avaiable here.  Back then, the Fall season was over, so the video I posted was a little outdated.

Previously this week, Jeremy Grey met up with Coach Dunbar.  The following interview gives a recap of last weekend’s tournament in Kentucky as well as the upcoming tournament that is close to home.

If you would like to watch the girls this weekend at the Circle Center Tournament, you will not have to travel far.  They play their first game on Saturday at 9 am in Plainfield, IN.

The following video is a great recap of IU Softball so far in case you would like to catch up with the girls so far this season.

Currently, the series is 1-1 against Penn State. Hopefully our girls can win this afternoon to better there record to 19-20!  You can catch the girls taking on Purdue next weekend at our own Andy Mohr Field for a three game series.

So you might ask what is the Harrow Cup? 

I asked the exact same question when I came across the iuhoosiers.com’s article.

According to Harrow Sport’s website,

The Harrow Cup is a post-collegiate women’s field hockey tournament with a $10,000 winner takes all cash prize. Six teams will compete in the weekend long competition in Philadelphia, Pa.

This year will mark the inaugural year of the Harrow Cup.

So the next question you might ask would be how does this fit in with Indiana University?

(more…)

Well I sure don’t, but three Indiana University Women have been picked to participate in a National Team Camp.

According to iuhoosiers.com, this Freshmen camp is for:

athletes with elite level potential and aspirations, but who have only one or perhaps two years of collegiate rowing experience. The goal is to expose the athlete to the National Team experience training two-three times per day, row in a variety of boat categories, learn technical and physiological basics, and train with athletes of a similar caliber. This team camp is for young athletes that have physiological potential and the desire to train for the National Team.

The article proceeds to talk about how this is the first time IU has had three girls chosen for this honor.  Freshman rowers Devory Dannemiller (Martinsville, Ind.) and Madison Treser (Waxford, Pa.), and sophomore coxswain Karly Kikkert (Chicago, Ill.) were the lucky ones chosen for the great opportunity to train with  the World Champions and Olympic gold medalists Anna (Mickelson) Cummins and Mary Whipple this summer.

In light of tonight’s game, I thought this was a great look into how our boys are getting ready to take down the Orange from Washington, DC.

Tom Crean and our Hoosiers are set to take on the Syracuse Orange tonight at 9:45.

Lets hope this game is not as close as the game in 1987.
