If you are interested in volunteering visit

Airport Welcome Monument Wall 

Volunteers are needed to carry plants to the site and to carry mulch. The plants are in flats or are in individual containers. We need to carry the plants to the planting teams for placement and planting. Likewise we need volunteers to carry mulch to the site after planting. The mulch would be in 5-gallon buckets. Neither operation requires any heavy lifting nor does it require carrying the materials any great distance as the materials will be staged adjacent to the planting area.

We need 20 or more people doing these tasks. We will start at 8:00 am on Saturday September 20 and we anticipate that we’ll be done by noon. As indicated, drinks, lunch and facilities are all provided. The site is located directly across from the entrance to the Evansville Airport off of U.S. 41. There is a large wall and we’ll be working at that. The access to the site is off Petersburg Road.

* Volleyball Falls to Tennessee in Hard-Fought Match

In front of 631 wild fans on Tuesday evening, the Purple Aces volleyball team gave the University of Tennessee everything they could handle before falling by a 3-1 final at the Carson Center.

The lively crowd willed the University of Evansville (2-6) through every point, but Tennessee (3-4) held its ground, clinching the final set by four points to seal the match.

Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week Ashley Ring led all players with 15 kills along with 48 attempts. Genesis Miranda finished behind her with 13 tallies while Meaghan Holmes completed the night with six. Leading the Lady Vols was Jamie Lea, who tallied 14 points and hit .205. Kim Deprez led everyone with 25 digs

A late rally saw the Volunteers earn the win in the opening frame. UT opened up on a 9-3 run as Kanisha Jimenez notched a pair of early kills. Evansville came back with a run of its own, scoring eight of the next ten tallies to tie it up at 11-11. The Aces took advantage of took advantage of six UT errors.

Another Tennessee error gave the Aces their largest lead of the frame at 17-14, but the Vols punched back to tie it back up. The difference came with the score tied at 20-20 as Raina Hembry posted a kill to lead Tennessee on a 5-0 game-ending run.

Evansville posted three of the first four points in the second game and never looked back as Ring posted six kills to lead UE to a 25-21 win. Tennessee came back to tie the game up at 7-7 before a 3-0 run set UE back in the right direction thanks to kills by Miranda, Ring and Cathy Schreiber.

It was all Aces from that point as another Ring kill gave UE its largest lead at 19-11. Tennessee fought back within three points before Ring’s sixth score of the frame clinched a 25-21 win.

Game three was another battle. Eight ties led to a 10-10 score before Ring gave UE the advantage once again. Three-consecutive kills gave the Aces a 13-10 edge. The lead reached five points before the Volunteers came back to eventually tie the score at 18-18. Tennessee’s run continued as they took a 22-19 lead on four straight UE errors. An Iesha Bryant kill sealed the 25-22 win.

Tennessee looked to have control in the fourth set, taking a 16-10 lead as Jamie Lea notched five kills in the frame. Evansville utilized kills from three different players to get within a tally at 16-15. That is as close as the Aces would get. They cut the deficit to just one on six occasions before UT came back and finished the night with a 25-21 win.

This weekend, Evansville welcomes Central Michigan, DePaul and IUPUI to town for their home tournament. The event opens on Friday as DePaul and IUPUI face off at 5 p.m. before UE faces the Chippewas at 7:30 at the Carson Center.

While they came in fifth place as a team, Belmont did have the top golfer in the event as Ashton Van Horne earned medalist honors.
