MVNU’s on-campus disc golf course saw a lot of action on Sept. 10 as a disc golf tournament took place throughout the day. The idea came from sophomore Wyatt Wagner, who during his freshman year noticed that our disc golf course could use some improvement, and he thought a disc golf tournament would be the best way to raise money to make improvements.

He called this event the Cougar Classic and wants to hold more events like it throughout the year, but he hopes to grow the Cougar Classic into an annual tournament that grows and improves every year. With over 70 competitors and over 100 volunteers, the event was very successful in its first year. With the 70 competitors split into seven divisions, there were seven separate winners. Marie Harrigan won the women’s novice division with a score of +78, and  Landon Rush won the men’s novice division with -7. The recreational divisions were won by Landon Rush Landon with a score of -7 and Korrin Lillie with a score of +24. The winner of the intermediate division was Chase Ferguson with a score of -14; the advanced winner was Wyatt Wagner with a score of -23, and the pro division winner was Trever Goebel who finished at -14. 

 

Wagner said that the event was a huge success, and the biggest improvement that can be made to the tournament would be by improving the course itself. With the money raised from the tournament, he hopes to have the course improved by tournament time next year.

Cougar Classic Disc Golf Tournament 

Hannah Miller’s Soccer Success and Journey
September 22, 2022 By Henry Shobert

MVNU women’s soccer goalie, Hannah Miller, recently set the team’s single-game save record with 21 saves against Cardinal Stritch University. When Miller blocked a barrage of shots during the game, she remarked that she had no idea what exactly she was accomplishing. She said, “I didn’t realize at all that I had broken the record. I was getting frustrated, and coach had to pull me aside and talk to me about it.” Cardinal Stritch kept Miller alert as they took 42 total shots with 24 on goal. MVNU fell to Cardinal Stritch 0-3.


While Miller has shined this season with the Lady Cougars, she explained that her soccer future hasn’t always appeared so certain. She mentioned, “I wasn’t sure if I was even going to play [in] college. It was never something I thought much about. Jordyn Shafer, the last starting goalkeeper here left, and they ended up needing another one.” Her decision to attend MVNU came relatively late, as she made her commitment in March. She exclaimed, however, that she was content with her decision. Before her career at MVNU began, Miller said that she started playing soccer at Ashland Soccer Association) at around 4 or 5 years old.


Though the Lady Cougars have had their ups and downs this year, Miller spoke optimistically about the remainder of the season. She said, “We still haven’t lost at all on our home field yet. We’re going to continue to grow and get better from here on out.”
