Every week for the rest of the 2012-13 school year, I'll be honoring Miami University's top athletes in a blog post titled "High Marx", which recognizes them for outstanding performances. Enjoy!


"High Marx"

Volleyball

  • Sophomore Meg Riley had her fourth triple double of the season (in only 7 games) against Xavier Tuesday night with 14 kills, 25 assists and 13 digs.

  • Freshman Annie Reiswig had her first breakout game, recording six kills against Xavier.

Women's Soccer

  • Sophomore Kelsey Dinges scored the game-winning goal for the Miami soccer team Sunday in overtime to top Belmont on the road, 2-1. The goal came just three minutes into the extra session, with rain pouring down and wind blistering across the field. The RedHawks improved to 4-1 on the year with their second straight comeback victory and are off to their best five-game start since 1999. Dinges now has three goals on the year, two of which are game-winners, after recording a total of two goals her freshman season.

Men's Cross Country

  • Steve Kiplagat, a redshirt senior transfer from St. Lawrence University, made his Miami debut Saturday at the Flyer 5K Challenge and finished second overall, only behind teammate Jarrod Eick. With Eick and Kiplagat's 1-2 finish, the RedHawks placed second as a team just three points back of Ohio State. Kiplagat, a Division III All-American last year, was three seconds ahead of the third-place runner from Dayton.

Football

  • Senior quarterback Zac Dysert threw for more than 300 yards for the 14th time of his collegiate career Saturday against Ohio State in Columbus. He completed 31 of 53 passes for 303 yards with one touchdown.
