Men’s Basketball:

Already in midseason form, Derrick Fain scored a game-high 30 points and Zach Stalin posted a double-double as The Master’s College put away Alaska-Anchorage 90-78 in an exhibition game Monday evening on Bross Court.

On Thursday at TMC’s season opener, Dominique Lanier sparked a decisive run midway through the second half and posted a double-double to lead the Mustangs to a 92-76 win over visiting West Coast Baptist.  

And on Saturday, Southern Oregon blistered the nets in the second half to power past TMC 92-80 Saturday evening.

The loss dropped the Mustangs to 1-1 in the first week of the 2013-14 campaign.

After a couple of days off, the Mustangs return to action Tuesday evening at home against NCAA Division II power Cal Poly Pomona.

Women’s Soccer:

On Monday, the GSAC Women’s Soccer All-Conference Team presented by Under Armour honored three athletes from The Master’s College: Jasmine Benson, Natasha Coyle, and Katie Farris.

With 7 minutes and 25 seconds into overtime, Concordia’s Megan Daniels assisted Brooke Springer on a golden goal that defeated The Master’s College women’s soccer team 3-2 in the GSAC Tournament Semifinal Friday afternoon in Irvine.

Friday’s loss marked the third time this season that the Lady Mustangs fell in overtime to a Top 10 NAIA team.

The loss brings TMC’s 2013 record to 15-5, and puts an indefinite halt to its season until next Sunday (Nov. 17), where it will see if it receives an at-large bid to the NAIA National Championship opening round.  

Men’s Soccer:

Brett Croft booted in a pair of penalty kicks to lift The Master’s College past San Diego Christian 2-0 Wednesday afternoon in a first-round game of the GSAC Men’s Soccer Tournament in El Cajon.

The victory propelled the sixth-seeded Mustangs into the conference semifinals, where they faced GSAC regular-season champion Concordia.

Despite an attempted second half comeback, The Master’s College men’s soccer team fell 2-4. With the loss, the Mustangs close out their 2013 campaign with a 5-12-1 (3-7) record.

Women’s Volleyball:

On Tuesday, The Master’s College volleyball team fell to the 14th-ranked Westmont Warriors 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-19).

Staying resilient, the Lady Mustangs snapped their two-game losing streak Saturday night by beating Arizona Christian 3-1 (25-11, 20-25, 25-14, 25-21) in Phoenix.

The win brings the 11th-ranked Lady Mustangs’ 2013 record to 18-7 (7-5 GSAC).  

Despite beating the Firestorm, the Lady Mustangs aren’t out of the fire yet as they now look to take down No. 2 nationally ranked Concordia this Tuesday in Irvine.  First serve is set for 7:00 p.m.

Women’s Basketball:

Parlaying a strong first half and a game-high 19 points from senior All-American Jacquelyn Marshall, The Master’s College cruised past Northwest Christian of Oregon 92-69 in its season opener at the Bill Holtz Warrior Classic at William Jessup in Rocklin Friday afternoon.

However, the Oregon Tech Owls turned the tables on the Mustangs Saturday afternoon, winning 74-63.

The loss evened the 10th-ranked Lady Mustangs’ record to 1-1.

TMC returns to Santa Clarita Thursday evening for its home opener against Bethesda at 7:00 p.m. at Bross Court.

Women’s Cross Country:

On Saturday, The Master’s College women’s cross country team produced a second-place team finish at the GSAC Conference Championship.

After missing nationals by one point the previous year, the 7th-ranked Lady Mustangs were vying to upset the 3rd-ranked Biola Eagles after consistently placing close behind them during the season.  TMC finished the race with a collective time of 1 hour 30 minutes and 11.30 seconds. Hannah Kellerman and Karis Frankian led the Lady Mustangs by fighting side-by-side against Biola, and finished strong by placing 3rd and 4th overall with times of 17 minutes and 32 seconds and 17:38 for the 5,000 meter course, respectively.

TMC’s Kellerman, Frankian, Rachel Ingoldsby, and Katrina Graham achieved All-Conference honors.

In two weeks, the women’s and men’s teams will conclude their seasons at the NAIA National Cross Country Championships in Lawrence, Kansas on Saturday, November 23.

Men’s Cross Country:

On Saturday, The Master’s College men’s cross country team bagged their fourth consecutive conference title at the GSAC Championship.

TMC placed first with a collective time of 2 hours 9 minutes and 55.26 seconds.

Josh Sherfey and John Hurd finished one-two for the Mustangs placing 4th and 5th overall with times of 25 minutes and 37 seconds and 25:49 for the 8,000 meter course.

Of the seven competing Mustangs, Sherfey, Hurd, Matthew Circhton, and Tyler Tockstein placed in the top fourteen, which resulted in their achieving All-Conference honors.

Notably, Saturday’s team victory gave head coach Zach Schroeder his fourth consecutive “GSAC Coach of the Year” title.
