Shauman nets hat trick, soccer outs Northwood

Junior forward Casey Shauman had a career day when she sniped her way to a natural hat trick in route to a 5-2 win over Northwood. To complete a natural hat trick, an athlete must score three goals consecutively. A regular hat trick entails scoring three goals, that don’t have to be consecutive.

Shauman scored a goal in the 2’, 44’ and 66’ minutes to put Ferris up 3-0 on Northwood, who is miring through an 0-7-0 GLIAC stretch this season.

Stephanie Garland and Jenna Winkel added goals in the 83’ and 85’ minute respectively, and Ferris moved to 3-6-2 on the season. Shauman’s goals pushed her season total to seven this weekend.

Tennis sweeps Ashland

The women’s tennis team put a 9-0 number on Ashland to move to 8-4 overall and 7-4 in GLIAC play. Ashland fell to 0-11 and 0-10 in the GLIAC. Ferris has won three of their last five matches, with two 9-0 wins, a 5-4 win and two 5-4 losses. It’s been a consistently strange stretch for Ferris, with blowouts bookending close matches.

The women’s tennis team wraps up the regular season against Grand Valley State on Friday, Oct. 17 at 6:00 p.m. in the Ferris Racquet Center.

The GLIAC tournament is up next beyond that for Ferris, and they’ll travel to Midland for it on Oct. 24-26.

Volleyball heads to GLIAC/GLVC crossover

The other Great Lakes Division II athletic conference will provide competition for Ferris this weekend. Last season, Ferris went 2-1, defeating Rockhurst (Mo.) and Lewis (Ill.) 3-0 and 3-0.

Their lone loss was a 3-0 loss to Indianapolis. Ferris is currently ranked no. 16 in the rankings according to the AVCA Coaches poll.
