McKinney named HCAC Player of the Week
By: Hanover College Athletics, 2/20/17

For the second time this season, junior Wes McKinney (Batesville, Ind.) of the Hanover men’s basketball team has been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference player of the week.

McKinney also garnered the weekly honor back on Dec. 12 of this season, as this week’s award gives No. 22 Hanover four total player of the week awards this year.

The junior averaged 17.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game, recording a pair of double-doubles, as the Panthers captured their first HCAC Regular Season championship since the 2004-05 season with two road wins last week.

In the opener last week, McKinney recorded 11 points and 10 rebounds, as HC defeated Mount St. Joseph 72-64, clinching the conference regular season title outright. He went on to post a game high 23 points and 12 rebounds in the 65-64 win at Bluffton on Saturday. McKinney made 9-of-12 field goal attempts in the win over the Beavers, shooting 75 percent from the floor.

On the week, McKinney shot 60 percent from the field (12-20), as he helped guide the Panthers to the top team field goal shooting percentage in all of NCAA Division III.

For the season, the junior is averaging a team high 18.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. McKinney’s totals also rank fifth and first respectively in the HCAC. He is shooting 51.2 percent from the field through the first 24 games and has a .414 shooting clip from behind the arc.

Hanover is 21-3 overall and finished HCAC regular season play with a 16-2 mark. The team will host the HCAC Men’s Basketball Tournament in its entirety this weekend, beginning with the Opening Round games on Friday, Feb. 24. The Panthers will open tournament play with a 5 p.m. semifinal contest against Rose-Hulman or Transylvania on Saturday, and a win would vault HC to the 2 p.m. championship game on Sunday, Feb. 26.

Hanover women win indoor track title
By: Hanover Athletics, 2/20/17

For the third time in the past six years, the Hanover women’s track and field team has won the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Championships.
The Panthers, who won back-to-back indoor titles in 2012 and 2013, recorded 130 total points in the 2017 championship event, outlasting host Rose-Hulman and Manchester, who ended up with 126 and 120 points respectively.
The Panthers’ 130 points marks the highest total for the team since the 2014 indoor championship.
After 10 completed events, Hanover was tied in the team scoring with RHIT, and after 15 events, the Panthers led the Fightin’ Engineers by eight points.
The championship title came down to the final event of the day, the 4x400 meter relay. The Blue and Red sent out sophomore Teal Burnett (Marshall, Ill.) in the first leg as she gave HC the early advantage. Competing in her final indoor conference championship, senior Brittany Ferrell (Hillsboro, Ohio) ran second for HC, keeping them within the top two as Manchester led heading into the final two legs.
Senior Erika Jervis (Cicero, Ind.) took the handoff from her classmate and sprinted to the front of the pack, handing off to freshman Kenna Hunter (Mooresville, Ind.) for the final 400 meters. In the biggest race of her collegiate career, Hunter held off the RHIT runner early and pulled away at the end, securing the event and team championship victories for HC. The 4x400 squad finished in a time of 4:12.35, the second fastest in school history.
Burnett also pulled off the only other first place finish for the women, finishing the 400m dash in 1:02.03. Her 400m time set a new personal record, while also moving her into fourth all-time at HC. The sophomore also placed fifth in the 200m, with a personal best time of 27.40.
Recording a team high 34 points was senior Savannah Hubbard (Madison, Ind.). The senior was busy, competing in six events, placing fourth or better on four separate occasions. Hubbard’s best finishes came in the long jump and triple jump, where she placed second in both events. Her long jump distance of 5.42m set a new personal record, while her distance of 10.85m broke her own school record by nearly 0.2 meters.
In the 200m, Hanover grabbed the fourth, fifth, and sixth spots. Freshman Simone Henderson (Liberty Township, Ohio) paced the Panther runners with a personal best time of 27.39, moving her into fourth in program history. Henderson also improved on her already top-five 60m dash time, finishing in 8.20 seconds to place fourth.
Henderson, along with Burnett and Hunter, teamed up with freshman Kara Beasley (Mooresville, Ind.) to run in the 4x200m relay. The all-underclassman group placed second in the meet, crossing the finish line in 1:49.85, the second fastest time in school history.
The 60m hurdles also saw three Panthers score, including Hubbard, whose time of 9.56 seconds was good enough for third overall and third in school history. Beasley and classmate Michelle Witt (Carmel, Ind.) placed sixth and seventh respectively.
Two women’s pole vaulters logged a height of 3.24 meters, placing fourth and fifth in the event. Sophomore Erin Trimpe (New Palestine, Ind.) won the tiebreaker over classmate Emily Clancy (Columbus, Ind.) to pick up the fourth place finish, as the 3.24m set a new career record for her.
Freshman Eve Galbreath (Vevay, Ind.) competed in her first conference championship, placing seventh in the shot put. Her throw of 11.02m is the second longest mark in school history.

Hanover will continue the 2017 indoor slate with its first of two last chance meets next Saturday, Feb. 25, at Anderson.
