Mastodon tracks

  • Men's basketball schedule released
    The 2014-15 IPFW men’s basketball schedule was announced Monday.
  • IPFW soccer loses to Xavier
    Last season was a forgettable one for the IPFW men’s soccer team – it went 1-15-1 – but the Mastodons didn’t look like a one-win team Saturday against Xavier in the Shindigz National Soccer Festival.
  • Women's volleyball picked 2nd in Summit
    The IPFW women’s volleyball was picked to finish second in the Summit League preseason poll of the league’s head coaches. The Mastodons received 53 points. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own teams.

Baseball team beats MLB prospect

IPFW opened its baseball season with a 2-0 victory over Indiana State. The game was played in Huntsville, Ala.

What makes the Mastodons' win noteworthy - other than Jason Kalber, Danny Tursell and Kyle Sorensen combining for a two-hit shutout - was that they beat Indiana State pitcher Sean Manaea.

Manaea is a 6-foot-4 left-hander who made a name for himself in the Cape Cod League, where he had 85 strikeouts and just seven walks in 51 2/3 innings.

IPFW got four hits off the MLB prospect (he has a mid-90s fastball) in four innings and scored an earned run. It gave Manaea the loss.

IPFW (2-2) begins a three-game series at Tennessee-Martin on Friday.
