Best moments from this spring you might have missed

  1. Senior Sam McManus wins national title in 200 yard breaststroke. McManus became the fifth Tiger in DePauw history to earn an individual national championship. He won the race in 1:58.57, which also earned him an All-American performance.
  2. Baseball’s come-from-behind win against Transylvania University. The men came from behind to win the game in 12 innings, 7-5. Senior Collin Einertson hit a three run home run to tie the game in the top of the ninth inning. The Tigers were then able to shutout Transylvania until they could score two more runs in the top of the 12 inning.
  3. Men’s lacrosse made it to the NCAC tournament for the first time in program history. The Tigers ended their regular season 4-4 in conference play. This ultimately earned them a bid to the NCAC tournament for the first time in program history. They lost to Ohio Wesleyan University, but two players earned All-NCAC honorable mentions and Head Coach Dan Ambrose was named as NCAC coach of the year.
  4. Come-from-behind win for men’s tennis against Wabash College. Wabash quickly took the lead in doubles play 3-0. However, it would be in singles matches where the Tigers made their move for victory. Winning 5 of the 6 matches, DePauw came from behind to clinch a 5-4 comeback victory against the Little Giants.
  5. First-year Samuel Voelz breaks 50 year old school record in the 800 meters. In the fourth place finish at the Rose-Hulman Twilight, Voelz stood out in the 800-meters event. His second place finish (1:52.56) earned the team 8 points and he broke the old school record (1:53.74) by just over a second.
  6. Women’s basketball undefeated in conference 16-0; 21 game win streak. Despite a short run in the NCAA tournament, the women continued their history of dominating conference play. They finished the season undefeated in the NCAC and with a 21 game win streak.
  7. Women’s golf claims NCAC title. Over a three day match play, the women consistently held first place ahead of Wittenberg University and secured their fourth NCAC title in seven years. All five golfers earned all-conference honors for their solid performances.
  8. Sidney Holler’s walk off single helps Tigers claim NCAC title. A solid fourth inning performance put the Tigers up 4-2 against Denison University in the NCAC championship game. In the top of the seventh, Denison would come back to tie the game. Holler’s single to score first-year Kaylyn Lindor would give DePauw the win and their tenth appearance in the NCAA Division III tournament in twelve years.
