Megna is tops, Hagen not too shabby

In the wake of Sarah Hagen's fifth-straight Horizon League Player of the Week honor, the NCAA has released updated national statistical leaders and both she and Kate Megna factor among the nation's elite.

Megna leads the nation 14 assists, three better than any other player, and is averaging a national-best 0.88 assists per game. Second place on the list, Michelle Enyeart from Portland, is averaging 0.79 per contest. Megna has assisted on goals in her last six games, including on all three scores for Milwaukee in two games last weekend.

Meanwhile, Hagen is fairly comfortable near the top of both the point and goal lists. She has 19 goals and 42 points so far this season, which puts her second in the nation in both. Her per-game goal-scoring average of 1.118 is fourth and her 2.47 points per game are sixth. She has scored goals in a school-record nine-straight games and 13-straight league games with one to play Friday at Green Bay.

In the league, no other player has more than eight goals and Megna is second with 17 points. On the assists leaderboard, another Panther, Keara Thompson, is tied for second with six.

Kulwicki estate gift helps UWM

Here is a note from the athletics world that will benefit UWM's School of Engineering, as the estate of late NASCAR standout Alan Kulwicki is making a large donation to his alma mater.

Kulwicki, a Wisconsin native, died in a plane crash in April 1993. He graduated from UWM in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.

A number of spots on the web have this story, but a good summary is located here.

The estate is also making a donation to UNC Charlotte, which actually has a motorsports engineering program.

Rob Jeter on Sports Central

UWM men's basketball coach Rob Jeter joined Bill Michaels on WTMJ's Sports Central to talk about the upcoming basketball season.

You can listen to the podcast of the interview here.

UWM practice officially gets started Friday.

NCAA Stats Favor Hagen, Megna

According to the NCAA statistics released this afternoon, the Panthers have two of the nation's top offensive players in sophomore Sarah Hagen and senior Kate Megna.

Hagen, on the strength of a seven-game goal-scoring streak, is second in the nation with 16 goals and fifth with 1.067 goals per game. Her 36 points are tied for second, while her 2.40 points per game are tied for fifth.

On the other hand, Megna is tied for the national lead with 11 assists this season. Her average of 0.79 assists per game has her second. Megna tied the school record for career assists with her 26th career helper Oct. 2 at Butler. She has since made the mark all her own with five assists over her last two games.

Weiland Takes A Stand At Al's Run

By all accounts, UWM assistant track & field coach Nate Weiland successfully defended his Al's Run title in Milwaukee on Saturday. But, he made a splash by evading the finish line and the volunteers holding the tape, then refused his award out of protest.

The race was covered by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, complete with quotes from Nate. The story is here.

An alum of the Milwaukee track and cross country program, Nate's protest was over the disqualification of the top two runners in the Lakefront Marathon the week prior.

Also running in the race was former Panther Holly Nearman, who took second. The 2008 women's champion, Nearman finished up her final year of eligibility in 2009.

Nate's winning time was 24:35, 43 seconds better than second place and 23 seconds better than his winning time last season (24:58). Holly, meanwhile, was just nine seconds off the winning time at 28:49 and nearly a minute better than last year (28:45).

Here is her interview with HLN's Damon Lewis:

OnMilwaukee.com - The Hill

OnMilwaukee.com was out at "The Hill" a few weeks ago to put together a feature on the preseason conditioning work done by the UWM men.

You can find the video here.

You might note that in a couple of frames of the video, you can see UWM radio play-by-play guy Bill Johnson taking a shot at the hill, as well. That was for a feature that will run on this year's "Rob Jeter Show" on Sports 32.
