of the Week
Hanover College Athletics, 3/19/18
For the second time in 2018, junior Erin Trimpe (New Palestine, Ind.) has been
named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Week, this
time, in the outdoor arena as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.
Trimpe posted the top women's pole vault mark in all of NCAA Division
III this past weekend, placing first at the Rose-Hulman Early Bird
Meet with a height of 3.66m, which is equivalent to 12 feet. The junior
used her 2018 outdoor season debut to break her previous school record
of 3.54m, which she set at last season's HCAC Outdoor Championships
en route to a first place finish.
Her mark of 3.66m is over three-tenths of a meter higher than any
other athlete in the HCAC or Great Lakes region this spring. The clearance
this past weekend is also among the top 75 in the country, regardless
of NCAA division.
For her efforts,
Trimpe has also been nominated as one of just 10 NCAA Division III
women's track & field athletes
for HeroSports national HERO of the Week. Voting for the weekly award
is open to the
public and the poll will close at 3 p.m. (EST), Friday, March 23. Fans
can vote once per hour up until the poll closes later in the week.

named an All-American
Hanover College Athletics, 3/19/18
Hanover men's basketball junior, Cam Fails (Mason, Ohio), continues to be honored
for his stellar play on the court for the 2017-18 season, as D3hoops.com tabbed
him a third team All-American Saturday evening.
Fails is just the second player in program
history to receive All-American accolades from D3hoops, and his third
team honors marks the highest
of any Panther player in the organization's 21 years of giving out
the national award. The junior was announced as a first team all-region
selection by D3hoops earlier in the week, with teammate Wes McKinney
(Batesville, Ind.) being named to the third team as well. McKinney
also picked up third team academic All-American honors this week
from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
go along with his D3hoops accolades, the 2017-18 season has seen
Fails be tabbed a first team all-district player by the National Association
of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic
Conference Player of the Year, Tournament Most Valuable Player and
first team all-HCAC.
Fails averaged a career and team-high 18.6 points
per game this season, while shooting a three-year best .521 overall
field goal percentage
and .439 from three-point range . He also paced the Panthers in assists,
2.6, and steals per game, 1.7, with both marks being among the HCAC
leaders as well.
The junior became the 37th player in program history
to record 1,000 career points and he will enter next year just five
points shy of joining
the top 25 all-time scoring list. He tallied three 30-point efforts
this past season, including two during postseason play against Bluffton
in the HCAC Tournament Opening Round and LeTourneau (Texas) in the
NCAA National Tournament First Round.
Behind the efforts of Fails, Hanover
finished 22-7 this season, including a 14-4 mark in the HCAC, which
was good enough to earn a share of the
team's second straight regular season title. The Panthers also went
back-to-back with HCAC Tournament championships, giving them another
appearance in the NCAA National Tournament.

Third baseman Eugenio Suarez and the Cincinnati Reds

deal that includes a team option for 2025 that if exercised

hit .260 last season and set career bests with 26 homers, 82 RBIs and
.828 OPS. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2020
