Washington & Jefferson College junior Cheyenne Mangold (Boerne, Texas/Texas Military Institute) earned the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Female Track Athlete of the Week Award after running to three victories at the Presidents’ home invitational on Saturday.
Mangold set a new meet record by completing the 200 meter dash in a time of 25.74. She added a victory in the 400 meter dash (59.02), while helping the 4x100 relay squad to a first-place showing with a time of 50.27.
Mangold continued her momentum created during the Presidents’ first outdoor meet when she set a personal-best time of 56.43 in the 400 meters in which she placed seventh. She also missed the school record by six-tenths of a second after completing the 400-meter hurdles in a time of 1:04.81 at the Wake Forest Open.
During the indoor season, Mangold topped her own school record 400-meter dash time at the ECAC Division III Championships (57.66).
Mangold is a three-year member of the W&J track team and also competed two seasons for the Presidents’ women’s soccer team.
W&J travels to Pittsburgh on Saturday for a quad meet hosted by Carnegie Mellon (10 a.m.).
For the second time this season, Washington & Jefferson College junior right hander Eddie Nogay (Weirton, W. Va./Madonna) was selected as the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.
Nogay made one start last week, firing five scoreless innings against Geneva to earn his fourth victory of the spring. He struck out five, while allowing just two hits and issuing one walk.
Nogay lowered his conference-leading earned run average to 0.69 for the season. He owns the lowest career ERA in school history at 2.01 and currently has a streak of 13.2 consecutive scoreless innings on the mound. He also had scoreless innings streaks of 26.0 and 18.2 during his career. His 26-inning streak was one frame short of tying the 11th-longest in NCAA Division III history.
Nogay has tossed a pair of complete game shutouts, just one shy of Sam Mann’s single-season school record set in 2005. Opponents are hitting just .129 off Nogay, the lowest mark in the league. He ranks among the top 20 in NCAA Division III in ERA, WHIP (0.54), walks per nine innings (0.69) and hits allowed per nine innings (4.15).
During his career, Nogay is 14-0 in 31 appearances (19 starts) with 79 strikeouts.
W&J returns to PAC play on Tuesday with a home doubleheader against Waynesburg beginning at 3 p.m.
Washington & Jefferson College sophomore Jennifer Suder (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley) was selected as the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week on Monday.
Suder produced the Presidents’ top finish at the team’s opening spring event this past weekend, the McDaniel Invitational at The Bridges Golf Club in Abbottstown, Pa. She placed 15th among 27 golfers with 188 strokes (97-91).
Suder averages a team-best 92.0 strokes in eight rounds this year, six of which occurred during the fall portion of the Presidents’ schedule. During the fall conference championship tournament, Suder was the runner-up with 171 strokes, including career-best round of 79 during the opening 18 holes.
In 20 collegiate rounds, Suder averages 93.4 strokes.
During the winter, Suder was selected as the PAC Diver of the Year in her first year on the Presidents’ swimming & diving team.
