Around the Horn
Landmark Athletes honored
The Landmark Conference honored freshman goalkeeper Emily Stankaitis and sophomore Matt Lottes as its women's lacrosse Defensive Player and baseball Pitcher of the Week on March 22.
Stankaitis went 2-1 last week, making 33 saves in all 180 minutes to earn her first two collegiate wins.
Lottes earned a win by surrendering just two earned runs over eight innings in Susquehanna's 16-5 win at Penn State Berks on March 19. He struck out a game-high six batters in that game.
Haaland shines in tennis
Freshman Mats Haaland earned a second-flight singles win and a first-flight doubles win to lead visiting Susquehanna to a 7-2 non-conference men's tennis victory over Messiah at Criste Courts on March 24.
Susquehanna (4-3 overall) swept the doubles matches and took four of six singles matches from Messiah (1-6 overall).
Haaland defeated his second-flight opponent, 6-4, 6-4, for his first collegiate singles win and teamed with fellow freshman Richard Fitzsimmons to win in doubles, 8-4. The Haaland/Fitzsimmons team leads Susquehanna with four doubles wins this season, all in the first flight.
Kintzing going to Paralympics
Susquehanna will be represented by senior Lauren Kintzing at the 2010 U.S. Paralympics Spring Swimming Nationals/Spring Can-Am at the Palo Alto College Natatorium in San Antonio from March 25 to the 27.
Kintzing, who suffered back and lower-body injuries in a boating accident at the age of 14, will compete in the S6-13 classification for those least affected by their injuries. Kintzing is an S10 competitor specifically.
Kintzing's performances while competing for the Susquehanna women's swimming & diving team since January 1, 2009, have qualified her for this meet in the 1,500-meter freestyle, 200 backstroke, 50 free, 100 back and 400 free events.
She is ranked first in the Spring Can-Am meet in the 1,500 free, second in the 200 back, sixth in the 50 free, seventh in the 100 back and 14th in the 400 free. The field of competitors includes international swimmers.
