TinCaps Baseball game
One final time, former University of Saint Francis men's
basketball coach Jeff Rekeweg basked in the Fort Wayne
spotlight on Saturday night along with his staff and some
members of the NAIA National Champion Cougars.
the Fort Wayne TinCaps game against Beloit, the TinCaps
introduced the national champion Cougars to what was a
growing crowd at Parkview Field on a warm, muggy early
evening along the first base side of the field in front of
the TinCaps dugout. The Cougars waved to the crowd and
received a warm welcome from the TinCaps fans after getting
introduced by 'Caps PA man Jim Shovlin. It was also USF
Alumni Night at Parkview Field, so the Cougars were well
represented in numbers which included USF President Sister
Then Rekeweg took part in the TinCaps 'first pitch'
pre-game activity before settling into seats along the
third-base line complements of the TinCaps.
This was the third time a professional team in Fort Wayne
paid tribute to USF for winning the 2010 NAIA Division II
National Basketball Championship back in March.
Rekeweg resigned as head coach after 14 seasons to take
the job at Northwood University in Midland, Mich. Chad

USF Selects LaCross as 6th Head Basketball
and persistence has paid off for Chad LaCross.
USF Director of Athletics Mark A. Pope announced on May 4 that LaCross, 31, has
been selected as the next University of Saint Francis men's basketball coach.
LaCross has served as USF associate head coach the last two seasons and
completed his seventh season as either an associate or assistant coach. He has
served as USF head men's and women's golf coach the past five years and started
the women's program. He will relinquish his duties as head golf coach. "I'm
excited about this tremendous opportunity," LaCross said. "There's no other
place I'd rather be. We've got a great group of players returning and we're
looking forward to another great season in 2010-11.
"I'd like to thank coach (Jeff) Rekeweg for giving me the opportunity and
responsibility the last several years to prepare me for this step in my career.
I have learned from Rek as well assistant coach Gay Martin. I'd also like to
thank USF President Sister Elise (Kriss), Provost Rolf Daniel and the Leadership
Team for their trust and confidence in me to lead the USF basketball program."
"Whenever a coaching change occurs, my first inquiry is to determine whether the
program is going in the right direction. In the case of USF Men's Basketball,
there is no doubt that this program is going in exactly the right direction -
both on and off the court," Pope emphasized.
"Not only did this team win the National Championship, but they earned a 3.0 GPA
and devoted countless hours to community activities and charities," Pope added.
"Chad LaCross is a vital part of this team, having devoted seven years to our
program, the last two as Associate Head Coach. Chad will continue the excellence
that defines USF Men's Basketball."
LaCross replaces Jeff Rekeweg, who led USF to the 2010 NAIA Division II National
Championship as the 15th-seed. Rekeweg resigned in April to accept the head
coach position at Northwood University (NCAA Division II) in Midland, Mich.
LaCross was a two-time, first-team NAIA All-American at Tri-State University
(now Trine University), left as the TSU career scoring leader (2,650 points) and
is a member of the TSU/TU Athletic Hall of Fame, inducted in September 2006. He
was 2000-01 Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Player of the Year after
leading NAIA Division II in scoring and averaging a double-double (points and
rebounds). In 33 games, LaCross scored 901 points averaging 27.3 points per game
including a school-record 51 against Indiana Tech in the WHAC Tournament.
After earning his degree in sports and recreation, he played professional
basketball for the Dodge City Legend in the United States Basketball League and
A 1997 East Noble High School graduate (Kendallville, IN), LaCross was a member
of the 1997 Indiana All-Star Team. He was named MVP in the Journal-Gazette Nancy
Rehm Border Wars Game. He scored 492 points his senior season at East Noble, the
third best single-season in Knights' history. He finished with 892 career
points, No. 10 on the ENHS career list. And the best was yet to come.
and Field Results
Though Jean Marqueling was hopeful of a top 10 finish,
someday she will look back with perspective and take
some consolation from her final competition for the
University of Saint Francis.
A junior who will leave
USF with an X-ray technician degree, Marqueling finished
13th in the discus in the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field
Championships on Saturday, May 29 at the Indiana
Wesleyan University Athletic Complex. Marqueling
produced her best attempt on her second attempt in
Flight 2 with a throw of 140 feet, 4 inches (42.77
meters). Her third attempt clanged off the right net
pole, and then, in the seventh of nine finals slots, it
was a matter of waiting out the third flight.
Unfortunately, the third flight included three
competitors who would finish 1-2 and 5 in the finals.
The fifth thrower in the third flight knocked Marqueling
down to the 10th slot and out of a shot at the finals.
Though disappointed she didn't make the finals, she
posed and smiled for photos with teammate Matt Truttling,
head coach Sarah Thrall and assistant coach Adam
Longsworth. Members of her family congratulated her for
a strong effort and she smiled and thanked them all for
Based on her seed, No. 18 with a qualifying
throw of 142-1 in the Mid-Central College
Conference meet at the end of April, she
shouldn't have even been in contention for a
spot in the finals. Instead she finished
13th out of the field of 30 entries.

place in the discus, it didn't diminish her
accomplishment in the hammer -- a winner and
