Women’s hockey announces 2015-16 roster

The Grand Valley State women’s hockey team recently announced the 2015-16 roster and it features a number of familiar names. Hilary Daniels, Kendra Myers, Frankie Wojtylo, Kristen Iannuzzi and Karyn Schmaltz headline a lineup with plenty of experience. The Lakers, however, welcome a new coach – Lauren Posthumus – into the head role for 2015-16. GVSU finished 16-8-3 in the 2014-15 season and open the new campaign with a tilt against Aquinas College on Oct. 3.

Division II and III men’s hockey rosters released

Both the Division II and Division III Grand Valley State men’s hockey rosters for the 2015-16 season have been determined. Highlighting the roster for the Division II team are forwards Nick Schultz, Zach Strain, Alex Ostrowski, Corbin Rainey, Tony Russo and Ian Hamilton. The Division III squad will be led by Eric White, Tyler Stoller and Kyle Vanderstelt. The Division II team, which finished second in the Central Division last season, opens on Sept. 18 and 19 with home matchups against Northern Michigan.

Potts returns for GVSU football

Just like that, Jamie Potts is back. Potts, a senior wide receiver, was playing minor league baseball in Spokane, Washington through Sept. 6. The Texas Rangers organization granted Potts his wish to finish his final year of football eligibility with the Lakers, and he is officially back on the roster. Potts will likely see sparing time for the near future, but could provide a spark in Sept. 19’s tilt against Ferris State. The Muskegon Oakridge alumnus totalled 54 catches for 905 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014 and was named First Team All-GLIAC.

Women’s golf finishes seventh at invitational

The Grand Valley State women’s golf team opened its fall season in East Lansing, Michigan with the Mary Fossum Invitational hosted by Michigan State. The Lakers carded a team 940 (+76) to finish in seventh place at the event. Senior Gabrielle Shipley finished tied for fifth, with a three-day score of 221 (+5). Samantha Moss, Julie Guckian, Alex Amos and Alex Taylor also participated for GVSU. Notre Dame (+23), Michigan State (+37) and Toledo (+38) paced the field for the tournament.
