Opening Kickoff!

The Citadel Brigadier Foundation has ordered 99 adidas throwback football jerseys that will be worn during the Bulldogs' Sept. 28 clash with in-state rival Furman at Johnson Hagood Stadium (6 pm kickoff).  You can own one of the game-worn uniforms (including retired and honored jersey numbers) by bidding on them through http://www.citadelsports.com/marketplace/auctions/featured. See the story below for more information.

If you’re planning to attend the ODU contest in Norfolk, The Citadel Alumni Association, in association with The Hampton Roads Citadel Club, has assembled some activities surrounding the game that may interest you.

Remember that the Memorial Fund Banquet is set for Sept. 26 and that the inaugural TCBF Past President’s Reception will be Sept. 27.

The football team travels to Norfolk to play for the first time Old Dominion University on Saturday.  The Monarchs are in the transitional year to FBS and feature the reigning Walter Payton Award winner (signifying the FCS’s top offensive player) in quarterback Taylor Heinicke.  This should be an exciting matchup.

As you’ve come to expect, we have another solid issue full of news and notes, so enjoy and Go Bulldogs!!!

The Citadel-Western Carolina Football Game Recap

The Citadel defense dominated a potent Western Carolina attack in the first half. Over the final 30 minutes, it was good when it had to be.

The Bulldogs came up with a wild interception with 2:12 remaining in the game to finally thwart a second half Catamount rally in a 28-21 Southern Conference victory Saturday at E.J. Whitmire Stadium.

The Citadel held a 21-0 lead at halftime before Western turned drives of 71, 75 and 76 yards into scores, the latter trimming the deficit to seven with 6:51 left in the fourth quarter. One possession later, Catamount quarterback Troy Mitchell's fourth down pass was deflected by Brandon McCladdie and bounced off the knee of Derek Douglas before settling into the hands of Bulldog safety Julian Baxter.

Two first down runs by Darien Robinson ran out the clock, giving the Bulldogs their eighth win in the past 10 meetings with Western.

The Bulldogs simplified their offense, running out of the traditional triple option the majority of the day, and it led to a 343-yard rushing attack for a unit that was averaging 223.5 per game going in. Ben Dupree led the way with his fourth career 100-yard outing, gaining 126 on 28 carries while scoring two touchdowns.

The senior quarterback went the distance with Aaron Miller limited during the week with a sore foot. With his big game, Dupree moved up four places to 13th on the all-time Citadel rushing list with 1,907 yards and also moved into a tie for ninth along with Harry Lynch and Adrian Johnson with 21 career touchdowns on the ground.

The rest of the rushing attack featured a balance between the B-back and slot back positions, with five other runners gaining at least 30 yards. Robinson finished with 50 yards and moved past Kenyatta Spruill into ninth place in school history with 2,106. His backup, freshman Tyler Renew, finally made his Citadel debut and turned in several strong runs to finish with 36 yards on six carries.

Previewing The Citadel – Old Dominion Game

The Citadel takes on Old Dominion on Saturday in a first-ever meeting between the two programs. After a 69-year absence, the Monarchs reinstated the program in 2009 and spent four seasons in the FCS. They are in the midst of a transition season to the FBS as a member of Conference USA.

Both The Citadel and Old Dominion are coming off their first win of the 2013 season last week and enter the contest with records of 1-2.  The Citadel closed out the first game on its road schedule with a 28-21 win over Western Carolina last weekend, improving its Southern Conference mark to 1-1.

Old Dominion topped Howard last weekend, 76-19, in its home opener.  Taylor Heinicke, the 2012 Walter Payton Award winner, threw for 406 yards and four touchdowns.

The Citadel vs. First-Time Opponents

Saturday’s contest against Old Dominion will mark the eighth time in the Kevin Higgins era (since 2005) that the Bulldogs will take the field against a first-time opponent.  

The Bulldogs are 4-3 in those games, and the last time The Citadel faced a first-time opponent was on Sept. 3, 2011 when we beat Jacksonville, 31-9, in the season opener.

In a first-ever meeting against Webber International in 2007, the Bulldogs topped the Warriors, 76-0, which is still the team’s largest margin of victory in program history.

Date                Opponent                   Result

9/3/2011          Jacksonville                 W, 31-9

Kicker Thomas Warren Remains Perfect

Senior kicker Thomas Warren added four more successful extra point attempts against Western Carolina and is now a perfect 51 of 51 since assuming the kicking duties at the start of the 2012 season.

Mike Adams (2004, 2006-07) holds the school record for most extra points made without a miss at 56.

The Citadel against Walter Payton Award Winners

When The Citadel takes the field on Saturday it will mark the fourth time that the Bulldogs face off against the reigning Walter Payton Award winner which signifies the top FCS offensive player in the country.  Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke earned the award in 2012.

The Citadel has competed against six teams whose roster has held that season’s future Walter Payton award winner. The Bulldogs have never topped the team with the award holder in its following season (0-3) or in its current season (0-6).

Gotta Love that Citadel Discipline

For the second consecutive season in 2012, The Citadel led the nation in fewest penalties (3.8) and fewest penalty yards per game (29.5), a testament to the discipline that has been established by Coach Kevin Higgins and his staff.

Currently, the Bulldogs lead the SoCon with just six penalties for 35 yards through three games.

Last week in Cullowhee, the Bulldogs did not commit any penalties, marking the fifth time in school history the feat has been accomplished and the first since 2008 against Florida.

The Citadel is currently third in the country, averaging just two penalties per game, and second in penalty yards per game with 11.67 per game.

Volleyball Tops Gardner-Webb; Takes One Win in Hosting the Sticky Fingers/Citadel Invitational

Ise d'Angelo recorded a team-high nine kills and led an energized squad to a 3-1 (25-23, 25-13, 23-25 and 25-17) victory over Gardner-Webb on Tuesday evening at McAlister Field House.

The junior outside hitter was one of six Bulldogs with at least five kills and was joined by Katie Briggs (eight), Mallory Moore (eight), Bailey Kernodle (seven), Lauren Hurt (six) and Rachel Keefer (five).  Keefer also dished out a season-best 40 assists, pacing a Citadel lineup that finished with a .267 attack percentage.

The Bulldogs also came through with an all-around defensive performance that included 12 digs from d'Angelo and 23 by senior libero Erin Bucherl.  The front row combination of Katie Briggs and Lauren Hurt tallied three assisted blocks each as The Citadel held a 12-0 edge in that category.

Radford topped The Citadel, 3-0 (25-10, 25-19 and 25-15), as the Bulldogs won one match in the Sticky Fingers/Citadel Invitational in McAlister Field House over the weekend.

The Sticky Fingers Citadel Invitational overall champion was awarded to Big East Conference participant DePaul, who won all three of its matches. The Blue Demons earned wins against Charleston Southern, Radford and the host Bulldogs to remain perfect on the season.

Kernodle, an all-tournament selection, highlighted a Citadel offensive attack with seven kills and was joined by d'Angelo (five kills) among statistical leaders. The Bulldogs, without the services of Bucherl for the match, struggled to establish defensive rhythm as d'Angelo and Keefer shared top honors with six digs. Hurt also made her presence felt with three assisted blocks against the Highlanders.

Against DePaul on Saturday, the Bulldogs fell, 3-0 (25-15, 25-17 and 26-24) in the early session. The Citadel was led offensively by the play of Kernodle (five kills), Amanda Rudnik (four) and Moore (four).  Keefer, who tallied 11 digs, and Bucherl (10 digs), provided the Cadets with a defensive presence.

Kernodle led a well-balanced lineup with a team-high nine kills as the Bulldogs downed South Carolina State, 3-0 (25-17, 25-20 and 25-14) to earn their first victory of the season on Friday at McAlister Field House.

Kernodle was joined up front by Briggs (eight kills), Hurt (seven) and Moore (six) as The Citadel tallied 38 team kills and a .206 hitting percentage. Providing sound defense for the Cadets was Bucherl who recorded 14 digs.  Rudnik also made an impact for The Citadel with nine digs, while the front row of Briggs, Hurt and Keefer led the Bulldogs to 14 assisted blocks.

In Friday’s evening session, Charleston Southern had four players with double-digit kills as the Buccaneers earned a 3-1 (24-26, 25-18, 25-17 and 25-20) victory over The Citadel.

Kernodle was the dominate force for The Citadel with her second career double-double (15 kills, 14 digs), and first since Radford (Sept. 1, 2012), amassing a .414 hitting percentage in the process. Kernodle was the only Bulldog to top the double-digit kill mark in the match, despite solid outings by Briggs (nine kills) and Rudnik (eight). 

Keefer's 38 assists were instrumental in the Bulldogs finishing with 52 team kills and a .232 hitting percentage. Defensively, Bucherl posted a match-high 21 digs, while Briggs, Hurt and Rudnik had two assisted blocks each.

Soccer Battles Presbyterian into Double Overtime before Falling; Ties Winthrop

Ruth Leiva and Ana Mesa both had a goal and an assist to help The Citadel overcome the loss of leading scorer Mariana Garcia in a 2-2 tie with Winthrop on Wednesday afternoon at WLI Field.

The Citadel trailed 2-1 with less than 10 minutes remaining when Leiva dribbled down the right side of the field before feeding Mesa, whose shot snuck in under the crossbar to even the contest. The goal was the first of the season for Mesa.

Winthrop had the two best scoring opportunities in the first overtime period, but Bulldog goalkeeper Naomi Carter was equal to the task. She made a diving save on a shot three minutes into the extra session that created a corner kick. The Citadel then had a chance to put in the game winner, but consecutive shots by Flo Amess and Lea Raedle were both stopped by the Winthrop netminder.

Garcia went out with 11 minutes remaining in the first half when she suffered a bruised knee. Garcia, who had scored six of The Citadel's seven goals on the year entering the contest, was held out the rest of the game as a precautionary measure but should be ready when the Bulldogs take on the Paladins in the SoCon opener.

Presbyterian College converted a penalty kick in the second overtime period to give the Blue Hose a 2-1 victory over The Citadel on Friday in Clinton.

After a scoreless 10-minute first overtime, Grace Raines was called for a handball in the box to set up the game-winning penalty kick at the 103:19 mark.

Mariana Garcia took a pass from Lea Raedle and put the ball in the lower right corner of the net to tie the game at one with nine minutes remaining in the first half. The goal was Garcia's sixth of the season and 37th of her career, extending her school record. Raedle was credited with her second assist of the year and also had a game-high four shots on the night.

Naomi Carter finished with 11 saves to four for the Blue Hose goalkeeper. Presbyterian outshot the Bulldogs, 17-13, and had 13 shots on goal to only five for the Bulldogs. The Blue Hose were also awarded 10 corner kicks to just two for The Citadel.

Lantz, McKee Lead Bulldogs at Coastal Carolina Invitational

The men and women's cross country teams finished third and second, respectively, at the Coastal Carolina Invitational 5k race on Friday evening at The Hackler Course in Conway.  Junior Raeven Lantz earned second for the men while senior Danielle McKee nabbed third place in the women's race.

Lantz crossed the finish line with an impressive time and personal record of 15:43.  Freshman Ross Jordan also finished in the top 10 for the Bulldogs, earning eighth place with a time of 16:10, the best of his young collegiate career.

Also placing for The Citadel were Paul Fleckenstein (19th place; 17:03), Grant Smith (25th place; 17:16) and Matthew Gill (28th place; 17:23).

On the women's side, McKee led the Bulldogs with a notable time of 19:09. Jackie Thompson was close behind, taking fourth place with a 19:20. Thompson has now recorded two sub-20 minute 5ks in her sophomore season. Ashley Beach was also a top 10 finisher, earning ninth place with a 19:43.

The women had six runners under the 21-minute mark, with the seventh crossing the finish line at 21:03. These are impressive finishes for this early in the season and shows optimism for the remaining races.

Among other competitors for the Bulldog women were Emani Little (12th place; 20:16), Nicole Ogilbee (18th place; 20:44), Jessica DeWitte (19th place; 20:59) and Emily Fields (20th place; 21:03).

Junior Kellie Anderson fired a two-day score of 159 (+15) and finished in a three-way tie for 52nd at the Great Smokies Intercollegiate held at Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa in Waynesville, NC.  Anderson recorded rounds of 79 and 80 to finish alongside fellow competitors Abby Driscoll (Presbyterian) and Bethany Galloway (Western Kentucky).

The Citadel posted a team score of 643 (+67). Western Carolina, the host team for the tournament, captured first place with a 570 (-6), while Samford (574; -2) edged Mercer (576; E) for second place.

Renata Sucha (81-80=161) notched a +17 to tie for 58th and Hollie Salvo (81-81=162) finished with a +18, one shot behind Sucha in 61st.

He Said It:

“They look like a FBS program already, even as they make the transition.  I think Georgia Southern and Appalachian State, they still look like FCS programs as they move up.  But this (ODU) team, it looks like they’ve been there two or three years already.”
