It’s just we didn’t compete as well as we could in some sets,” Kleinecke said. “There’s a lot of parody in the game today. You have to be ready to play every day, or you are going to get beat.” “There’s a lot of excitement for this match,” A&M junior Lisa Ding wall said. “All their players are ranked ahead of us, and it is that chance to pull up your individual rankings by getting the upset that makes it so thrilling. “This match will always be in tense but respectable. There’s not the bitterness as in some other matches. We just have a strong re spect and try and come out and play our very best for each other.” The Aggies are currently ranked second in Big 12 play behind the Sports Page 7 • Tuesday, April 13, 1999 A&M tries for revenge versus UTSA BY AARON COHAN The Battalion It will be another Tuesday night Fight at Olsen Field when the Texas A&M Baseball Team faces the University of Texas-San Antonio Road- runners. A&M comes into the game with a sev en-game win streak and a sweep of conference foe Kansas State University on the road this past weekend. The fifth-ranked Aggies, who remain in the No. 2 slot in the Big 12 Conference behind Bay lor University, improved to an overall record of 32-8 with the weekend sweep. A&M coach Mark Johnson said his players did what it took to win against the Wildcats. “The guys responded well, and everyone performed extremely well this weekend,” he said. The Aggie pitchers dominated over the weekend. Junior Casey Possum threw a shutout to earn Big 12 Player of the Week. Ju nior Chance Caple gave up only three runs in his complete game, and for the third straight week, senior Matt Ward helped give the Ag gies a win. “Matt has come on strong for us lately,” Johnson said. “He got two rocky starts at the beginning of the season, but he kept working hard, and it has paid off for us.” Revenge will be on the Aggies’ minds when they look to tonight’s game with the Roadrun- ners. A&M lost a hard-fought game in San An tonio the last time it took on UTSA in which the Ags scored five runs in the ninth inning but also yielded three to UTSA to give the Roadrunners the win. “We have got big-time payback to put against those guys,” junior Dell Lindsey said. Lindsey, second on the team with a .368 bat ting average, said the team cannot afford to look ahead to the series with Baylor this weekend. “We’ve been talking about Baylor and the se ries with them for the longest time,” he said. “But we know we have to concentrate on beat ing UTSA first before we take on the Bears.” Pitching for the Aggies will be sophomore Chris Scarcella. The right-hander holds a 7.50 ERA and has a 2-0 overall record this season. Adding some of the most potent offense in the nation will be senior team captain John Scheschuk and sophomore Daylon Holt. Scheschuk broke out of a mini-slump this week end against the Wildcats, going 5 for 10 from the plate, including four doubles, to put his .387 batting average atop the team standings. The right fielder hit two more home runs this week end to hold on to his team highs in homers (18) and RBIs (62). A&M will get three days of rest before head ing into a three-game series with the Bears. Sat urday and Sunday’s games will be played at Olsen Field. Palmer’s top-ten finish leads Aggies at tourney TERRY ROBERSON/T lli BATTALION A&M junior Kathryn Scott hits a backhand during singles play Saturday against Vanderbilt University. Longhorn’s but still have several crucial matches left in the season. “We haven’t really had a chance to show what we can do in confer ence,” Dingwall said, “and this will be an opportunity to prove our selves.” Texas A&M will look to the No. 1 singles player Martina Nedorostova in addition to Monica San Miguel and Lisa Dingwall to be strong contenders in the match but will need top games from all their players to break through against the Longhorns. The power freshman Nedorosto va is currently ranked 58th nation ally with a 20-8 record and is cur rently undefeated in Big 12 play. BY TRAVIS HARSCH The Battalion A&M senior Ryan Palmer con tinued his streak of top-ten finish es this weekend, placing in a five way tie for eighth at the MacGregor Downs/BellSouth Intercollegiate in Cary, N.C. The finish was the fourth con secutive top-ten placing for Palmer, who was third in the Bor der Olympics and took home second place in the Morris Williams/Cleveland Golf Invitational. Palmer followed up an opening round 73 on the par 72 course with a 71 and a 74 for a 54 hole to tal of 218, which tied him with golfers from UNLV, Kansas, North Carolina and East Tennessee State. Wil Collins of New Mexico won the individual title with a two-under par 212, and UNLV took home the team title with a three-round total of 869. UNLV had some tight competition for the trophy, however, as four oth er teams finished within eight shots of the Rebels’ score. The win marked the second year in a row UNLV captured the title. In 1998, A&M finished sixth, 15 shots back of the Rebels, be hind top 25 placings from Miguel del Angel, Ryan Tull, Palmer and Ty Cox. The Aggies struggled against one of the most competitive fields they have faced this year, with seven teams ranked in the top 25. The Ag gies posted a three-round score of 313-303-307 = 922 to finish in twelfth place. The tournament was the last for the Aggies before they compete in the Big 12 Championships April 25 to 27 in Hutchinson, Kan. r.
