At a signing ceremony at Mater Dei High School on Thursday, Mar. 5, Morgan Dermody signed a letter of commitment to play women’s basketball at St. Louis College of Pharmacy for the 2015-16 season. Dermody, a 5’11” senior, will be a welcome addition to the Eutectic squad.

“I had a chance to scout Morgan along with receiving some powerful feedback from her coach, Coach Kohnen at Mater Dei Highschool,” said Eutectic head coach Ashley Eldridge. “He spoke highly of her presence on the boards, leadership, and urge to become a better athlete. It was pretty evident to me that she would contribute to the growth of our program.”  

Santhuff Breaks Records, Euts Close Season

At their final regular season and home game of the season, the Lady Eutectics enjoyed support from a large homecoming crowd at St. Louis Community College at Meramec on Saturday, Feb. 28. Before the game, third-year starting guard Emi Santhuff was recognized for breaking the STLCOP record for Career Three-Pointers. During the Eutectic win over Stephens College on February 7, Santhuff surpassed the previous STLCOP mark of 99, set by Melissa Hazelwood in 2006, and finished the season with 117 career three-pointers. With one more year of eligibility, she is likely to continue adding to that record. Santhuff also broke the STLCOP record for Single Season Free Throw Percentage this season, shooting 87.5% (28/32) from the line this year, and improved on her record for Career Free Throw Percentage at 83.72% (108/129).

The Eutectics hosted Williams Baptist College for the homecoming game, falling 72-40 to the Eagles. Santhuff led the team in points (11) and assists (4), while third-year forward Jaime Everett had 11 rebounds for the Euts. First-year guard Jordyn Norde had 10 points and four steals during the game. Ranked 11th of 13 teams in the conference, the Eutectics traveled to Parkville, Mo., on Monday, Mar. 2, to play sixth-ranked Park University in the first round of the AMC tournament. Santhuff again led the Eutectics in their 77-39 loss to the Pirates, dropping in 11 points and pulling down seven rebounds. Everett had eight points and eight rebounds, while first-year center Lauren Roethemeyer had eight rebounds, four points, and three assists, and third-year guard Emily Nickels had eight points and four rebounds for the Euts. 

The Eutectics finished the season with a record of 3-23 (3-22 in the AMC). Despite the increased competition level that resulted from moving from an NAIA Division II conference (KIAC) to an NAIA Division I conference (AMC), the Eutectics can celebrate a major team accomplishment this year: The 2014-15 team’s three AMC wins add up to more conference victories than the Eutectic women’s basketball team has collected in all 12 of STLCOP’s years of conference membership. 

Spartans Defeat Lady Euts

The Lady Euts fell to the Missouri Baptist Spartans on Tuesday, Feb. 17, at the Eutectic home gym, 79-47. Both teams got off to a slow start, with the Eutectics holding the lead at 4-0 after five minutes of play. The Spartans seemed to find their groove after seven minutes, grabbing the lead and not looking back. MoBap was up 37-19 at halftime, shooting 44 percent from the field, including five three pointers. The Euts improved their own shooting percentage in the second half, going from 29% to 39%, but it was not enough. The Spartans went six for six from three-point land, continually adding to their lead.

Third-year guard Emi Santhuff went seven for ten in the second half, including three buckets from well-beyond the arc, racking up 17 points. She would end the game with 19 points and three rebounds. First-year center Lauren Roethemeyer just missed a double double, pulling down 11 rebounds and dropping in 9 points for the Euts.

The Eutectics are now 2-19 (2-18 AMC). Next up, they host the William Woods University Owls at St. Louis Community College at Meramec on Thursday, Feb. 19, at 7:30 p.m. 

Lady Euts Win Conference Game

On Saturday, Feb. 7, the Lady Eutectic basketball team made history by winning its first conference basketball game over Stephens College, 63-58. Since joining a conference in 2004 (the NAIA Division II Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference), the women’s team has not seen a conference win. With the switch to the more competitive NAIA Division I American Midwest Conference, the win over Stephens is especially sweet.

Things didn’t look good for the Eutectics at the half. They were down by 14 (18-32) and had been shooting only 28% from the field. Third-year guard Emi Santhuff was shooting 54% from the field, but couldn’t get many shots off, totaling 8 points at that point. The Euts knew they needed to step it up if they wanted to avenge their 15 point loss at Stephens in December. Still, in the first few minutes of the second half, the Euts let the lead slip to 17 points before attempting to creep back into the game.

Santhuff continued to shoot well, and with eight minutes on the clock, the Euts were down by eight, chipping away at the score. Key buckets by third-year forward Jaime Everett and first-year guard Jordyn Norde, along with third-year guard Paige Forshee’s indefatigable defense got things going for the Euts. Down by 5 with 6:45 left in the game, Eutectic head coach Ashley Eldridge called a time out. When the Eutectics stepped back on the floor, the momentum swung towards STLCOP. Everett had six rebounds, a key steal, and a block in those final three and half minutes, while adding two points to buckets by Santhuff and Norde that would pull the Euts ahead by five to close the historic game.

Santhuff put in 27 points, shooting 50% from the field for the Eutectics, while Norde finished with 18. 19 of Santhuff’s points and 16 of Norde’s were in the second half. As a team, the Euts dropped in 45 points in the second half alone – more points than they have finished with in the 10 of their games this season. Everett finished the game with six points and eight rebounds, while third-year guard Paige Forshee had eight rebounds and seven assists to go along with her two points. First-year center Lauren Roethemeyer had eight points and seven rebounds for the Euts, and third-year guard Emily Nickels claimed two points.  

Now 2-16, the Eutectics will next travel to Parkville, Mo., on Thursday, Feb. 12, to take on the Park University Pirates at 5:30 p.m.

?Everett’s Double Double Not Enough For the Win

Third-year forward Jaime Everett earned her second double double of the season, dropping in 11 points and pulling down 13 rebounds on Thursday, Feb. 5, as the Euts had their second crack at the Harris-Stowe Hornets. Despite Everett’s performance and third-year guard Emi Santhuff’s 17 points, the Eutectics found themselves 12 points down when the final buzzer sounded at the Hornets’ gym. While the Euts put together two solid halves, it wasn’t quite enough to overcome the Hornets, who won 66-53, a much closer outcome than the Hornets versus Eutectics game results from December. The Eutectics’ 53 points was the highest score for the Euts since their game against Missouri Baptist on January 6. Third-year guard Paige Forshee and second-year guard Lauren Albertina each had eight points for the Euts.

The Euts are now 1-16 (1-15 in the AMC) for the season with eight games left. Saturday, Feb. 7, they play host to the Stephens College Stars at 2 p.m. with hopes of reversing their 50-65 loss to the Stars back in December.

?Euts Fall to Lindenwood-Belleville

The Eutectic women’s basketball team returned a conference game at Lindenwood University-Belleville on Tuesday, Jan. 27. The Euts, with only seven on their roster, suffered their second loss to the Linx, 41-90. The Linx (11-9, 10-4 AMC) are ranked fourth in the AMC and had already soundly defeated the Euts at home in December. The 41 points put up by the Eutectics is the highest point total for the team in the past six games. 13 of those points came from third-year guard Emi Santhuff, who was five for 11 (45%) from the field and three for four from the arc. Santhuff also pulled down nine of the Eutectics’ 38 rebounds.

The Eutectics are now 1-13 for the season. Santhuff leads the team in scoring, averaging 11.4 points per game. Third-year forward Jaime Everett pulls down 5.8 rebounds per game for the Euts, ranking ninth on the AMC lists for defensive rebounds per game with 4.33. First-year point guard Jordyn Norde is seventh in the conference for steals, averaging 1.85 per game.

After a week with no competitions, the Lady Euts will be back in action on Tuesday, Feb. 3, when they host Park University for a re-scheduled first conference match-up at 5:30 p.m. at St. Louis Community College at Meramec.

?Eutectics Score Big Despite Injuries

It seems that the Eutectics have been hit with one obstacle after another this season, in the form of injuries. When the season started, the team had a minimal nine players on the roster. By December, injuries had dropped the team’s roster down to six. The Euts managed to pick up a player, but then, just as quickly, lost another to injury over the break. The team was reduced to forfeiting the game against Columbia College on Jan. 3. In their 2015 debut at 0-7, the Eutectics played their best game of the season at Missouri Baptist. The team scored 58 points, dropping in 11 3-pointers to score the most points in a game this season in their 89-58 loss to the Spartans.

33 of the Eutectics’ 58 points were from 3-point land as the team shot an unprecedented 61% from behind the arc. Second-year guard Lauren Albertina was four for six for three-pointers, shooting 50% from the field for her 20 points. Second-year guard Emi Santhuff shot 53%, putting in 3 three-pointers for 18 of the Eutectic points. First-year guard Jordyn Norde went three for four from three-point land, dropping in 11 total points. Third-year forward Jaime Everett led the team in rebounds with seven, while Norde and third-year guard Paige Forshee had three steals each.

Now 0-8, the Eutectics will be back in action on Thursday, Jan. 8, when they travel to Fulton, Mo., to take on the William Woods Eagles.

Eutectics Deal with Challenges

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy athletic teams have always been underdogs. Recruiting only those athletes interested in pursuing a degree in pharmacy greatly limits the pool from which to draw. Once enrolled, the intense pharmacy curriculum can scare off potential athletes and even wear on those student-athletes most dedicated to their sport. The required evening labs and classes have made scheduling practices difficult. But, the Eutectics have found creative ways to overcome these challenges and find success since the inception of the STLCOP athletic program. This year, the Eutectic basketball teams have been asked to dig even deeper, and rise to the challenges brought on by the demolition of their beloved Pillbox and the transition from an NAIA Division II conference to Division I.

When the Pillbox came down in March, the Euts were left with no facility. Arrangements had been made for practicing at nearby St. Louis University High School, but since the high school court does not meet the official requirements for collegiate games, home games would be played at St. Louis Community College at Meramec – a good 20 minutes away. In addition, STLCOP joined the American Midwest Conference (AMC) this fall to decrease the amount of travel and develop local rivalries. Membership to the new conference bumped the Eutectics from Division II to Division I in basketball, increasing the competition level.

The Eutectics have been rising to meet these challenges head on this season. Despite a 0-4 start by the women’s basketball team, the Eutectics continue to work hard to defy the odds. In their first-ever trip to New York to play for the Apothecary Cup against Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences on Nov. 15, the Lady Euts had a team bonding experience competing and sightseeing. The Euts played well against ACPHS, down 34-30 at the half, but could not overcome the Panthers, losing 62-52 in the end. Third-year guard Emi Santhuff had 16 points for the Euts.

The first conference match up was a “home” game, which, aside from the Eutectic crowd support, was more a neutral court experience since the Eutectics had yet to play on the STLCC court. Both the Eutectics and the Lyon College Scots had difficulty finding the basket in the first half, with the Euts down 22-14 at the horn. But, the Scots eventually found their groove, claiming the win at 74-36. Santhuff again led the Euts with 12 points. Two days later, the Euts hosted conference and national leader and undefeated number-one ranked Freed-Hardeman University, losing 105-33. Second-year guard Amy Wong had 10 points for the Euts. After the Thanksgiving break, two weeks later, the Eutectics hosted the other AMC newcomer from across town, the Lindenwood University-Belleville Lynx on Dec. 6. Injuries had taken four players from the STLCOP roster, leaving the Eutectics with only six players available. The Eutectic players pushed to their physical limits, working well as a team, but unable in the end to keep up with the Lynx. The Euts fell 110-45. First-year guard Jordyn Norde had 15 points, while third-year Jaime Everett notched her first double double of the year with 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Once finals are complete, the Eutectics will return to face two more AMC teams before the new year. On Thursday, Dec. 18, the Lady Euts host Harris Stowe State University at STLCC before playing their first conference game on the road on Dec. 20 at Stephens College.  

?Euts Travel to New York in Quest for Apothecary Cup

Apothecary Cup Game 2013
The Eutectic and Panther teams pose after the Apothecary Cup game in the
Pillbox in 2013. This year the battle is in New York.

The Eutectic women’s basketball team will open their season in Albany, N.Y., on Saturday, Nov. 15, in hopes of returning the Apothecary Cup to St. Louis. St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences began a rivalry in 2011 when the two pharmacy-only teams first battled for the cup. A four-year rotation was drawn up, involving alternating locations of both the men’s and women’s matchups. The cup is a source of pride for the winning pharmacy team, with the rivalry growing stronger every year. Some have even gone so far as to dub the yearly contest as “Pharmageddon.”

The two men’s teams duked it out in the Pillbox in St. Louis at that first game, with the Eutectics claiming the victory and the rights to the Apothecary Cup for the next year. But, for the next two years, the Apothecary Cup resided in New York, as the Panthers would win the cup when the men played in Albany in 2012, and the Lady Panthers would maintain the property in 2013 when they defeated the Lady Euts in St. Louis. This year, the women’s teams battle it out in Albany to conclude the four-year cycle. The Eutectics hope to reclaim the prized cup this year and enjoy its glow through the 2014-15 season. If the Eutectics have anything to say about it, the Cup should have a permanent home in St. Louis. But, who knows whether the Apothecary Cup will apply for residency in Missouri or New York since, in 2015, the cycle begins anew, and the men’s teams will fight for it once more in St. Louis.

The women’s team members were recognized with varsity awards for their efforts throughout the season. The team finished the season with a 4-17 record and highlights of the season were presented by head coach Ashley Eldridge, along with several individual awards.

The team “Offensive Player of the Year” award went to second-year guard Emi Santhuff. Santhuff led the team in scoring, averaging 14.9 points per game and broke two STLCOP offensive records this season. On January 21, during a home game versus Logan Chiropractic, she scored 38 points, breaking the STLCOP record for Individual Game Scoring by two points. In the same game, she dropped in eight 3-pointers, breaking the record for Most 3-pointers in a Single Game. Santhuff also currently tops the Eutectic list for Career Free-Throw Percentage Leaders at 82.47%, and, after only two years of play, has climbed into the top-ten list for Career Scoring with 469. She ranked in the top-ten in the conference in five different statistical categories and 31st in the nation for 3-point field goals per game at 2.45.   

First-year guard Lauren Albertina received the “Defensive Player of the Year” award for her hustle on the court and first-year injured guard Callie Schwartzkopf was honored with the “Leadership Award” for her positive team roles on and off the court. Captain awards were bestowed upon third-year center Heather Cohen and third-year forward Courtney Darrah.

Santhuff Breaks Records; Euts Fall Short of Victory

Eutectic guard Emi Santhuff broke two STLCOP records when the Eutectics hosted Logan Chiropractic College in the Pillbox on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The Euts started out flat, scoring only 17 points to Logan’s 59 in the first half. But, thanks to Santhuff’s 33 points, the scenario was reversed in the second half as the Euts outscored the Llamas by 24 points, improving their team field goal percentage from 15 to 59 percent. Despite the second-half rally, the Euts were unable to clinch the lead and lost 80-88 to the Llamas.

Santhuff’s total of 38 points in the game surpassed the previous STLCOP scoring record of 26 set in 2008 by Natalie Howard. Eight of Santhuff’s buckets were three-pointers, which smashed the STLCOP record of five three-pointers in a single game, co-held by several former STLCOP players. Santhuff also collected nine rebounds for the Euts during the game.

First-year guard Lauren Albertina had 10 points for the Euts, while second-year center Jaime Everett had nine rebounds during the game. 

The Eutectics are now 2- 9 for the season. Next up, they host conference foe Cincinnati Christian University in the Pillbox on Saturday, Jan. 25.

?Eutectics Honor Fallen Teammate

?Morgan Ciota

The Eutectic women's basketball team will honor fallen teammate and friend Morgan Healy Ciota, class of 2017, by wearing black wristbands printed with a gold "30," Morgan's jersey number, during games for the remainder of the season.

The entire St. Louis College of Pharmacy community has been mourning the loss of Morgan since a tragic accident resulted in her untimely death. Morgan will be remembered for her passion and zest for life, as a kind and compassionate friend, and a hardworking dedicated young woman who impacted so many lives around her. She will be missed by all.

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy community, in coordination with the Ciota family, will hold two events celebrating Morgan’s life. All students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members are invited to attend a candlelight vigil and memorial service as the College remembers Morgan and reflects on what she meant to each of us.

Monday, January 20, 7 p.m.

A candlelight vigil will be held Monday, January 20, at 7 p.m. in Whelpley Auditorium. The College will provide refreshments immediately following the event. The College appreciates the efforts of the Kappa Epsilon fraternity in coordinating this event.

Tuesday, January 21, 12 noon

A memorial service will be held at 12 noon in the Pillbox. Please join the College community as it honors a kind and compassionate friend and young professional. Box lunches will be provided following the service.

?Eutectics End 2013 with a Win in the Pillbox

The Eutectic women's basketball team had 11 steals during its game against Lincoln Christian University.

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy women’s basketball team claimed its second victory of the season on Monday, Dec. 2, beating the Lincoln Christian University Red Lions, 64-52, in the Pillbox in its last game before the month-long semester break. The Euts scored the first basket and never gave up the lead, heading to the locker rooms at the half up 34-20. In the second half, Lincoln Christian’s Tatiana Colclasure made things interesting by dropping in five three-pointers and scoring 21 points, ramping the Red Lions’ shooting percentage up from 21 percent in the first half to 41 percent in the second. But, the Eutectics responded well, improving their own shooting in the second-half and surprising the Red Lions with some key steals and buckets to keep them on top.

Second-year guard Emily Nickels led the Euts in scoring with 17 points, while second-year guard Emi Santhuff put in 14. Third-year center Heather Cohen pulled down nine rebounds, first-year guard Amy Wong had four steals, and second-year guard Paige Forshee dished out four assists for the STLCOP team. Forshee currently leads the KIAC in assists/turnover ratio, averaging 2.5 assists to 1.17 turnovers per game for a 2.14 ratio.

The win over Lincoln Christian improved STLCOP's record to 2-5 for the season. After some time off for finals and semester break, the Euts will be back in action on Jan. 17 when they travel to Kentucky to play conference games on three straight days. They return for the first home game of the new year on Jan. 21 versus Logan University College of Chiropractic at 7 p.m. in the Pillbox.

The Eutectic women’s basketball team claimed its first win of the season over Principia College on Tuesday, Nov. 19, in Elsah, Ill. It was the first time the Eutectics have defeated the Principia Panthers since 2007.

The Euts came out strong, shooting 52 percent and claiming a 37-31 lead in the first half. During the second half, the Euts quickly increased their lead to 14-points, but the Panthers then made a push to close the gap. The aggressive style of the Panthers led to fouls, however, and the Eutectics were able to sink nine free throws in the second half, which helped the Eutectics fend off the Panthers and earn the 70-65 win.

Second-year guards Emi Santhuff and Emily Nickels each had 18 points in the game, with Nickels going 4-for-4 from three-point land. First-year guard Amy Wong had 12 points and four steals for the Euts, while second-year guard Paige Forshee and second-year forward Jaime Everett crashed the boards for eight rebounds apiece.

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the Lady Eutectics hosted Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences for the first women’s battle for the Apothecary Cup. The Apothecary Cup tradition began in 2011 when the STLCOP men’s basketball team claimed the Cup with a victory over ACPHS in the Pillbox. In 2012, the Eutectic men travelled to Albany with the Cup, but returned empty-handed after a triple-overtime loss. The 2013-14 home for the Apothecary Cup was to be decided by the women’s teams on Saturday. The Panther 52-42 win over the Eutectics in the Pillbox determined the Cup would remain in New York until next fall, when the Lady Euts will travel to New York and get a chance at reclaiming it.

Santhuff led the Euts on Saturday with 19 points, and third-year Courtney Darrah pulled down six rebounds.

Next up, the Lady Euts will travel to Greenville College (Ill.) on Tuesday, Nov. 26, for a 6 p.m. game before taking some time off for the Thanksgiving holiday.          

?Eutectics Open Season with Loss

The Eutectic women’s basketball team opened the 2013-14 season at home in the Pillbox against Benedictine University-Springfield on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Shooting 43 percent in the first half, the Euts hung tough with the Bulldogs, heading to the locker room at halftime down 33-28. An invigorated Bulldog team met a fatigued Eutectic team in the second half, however, as the Bulldogs pulled away, winning 74-51.

Second-year guard Emi Santhuff had a stellar game for the Eutectics, shooting 60 percent for 18 points, to go along with seven rebounds. First-year guard Amy Wong made her mark on her first collegiate basketball game with nine points and two rebounds for the Euts, while second-year forward Jaime Everett scored eight points.

The Eutectics will have a chance to avenge their loss when they travel to Springfield on Thursday, Nov. 14, to take on the Bulldogs on their home court.   

Lady Eutectics Earn First Homecoming Game Win

Bolstered by a huge homecoming crowd at their final home game of the season, the Lady Euts earned the first women's basketball homecoming game win in STLCOP history on Friday, Feb. 15 by defeating the Logan Chiropractic College Lady Llamas in the Pillbox. Ahead 26-21 at halftime, the STLCOP team never looked back, beating the Llamas by 10 points, 59-49. First-year guard Emi Santhuff was the high scorer for the Lady Euts with 12 points and three assists, while first-year guard Amber Laurent had 11 points. First-year forward Jaime Everett and second-year center Heather Cohen crashed the boards for the Eutectics, together pulling
down 21 rebounds for the Lady Euts.

On Saturday, Feb. 15 the Lady Euts played their final game of the 2012-13 schedule in Paragould, Ark. versus the Crowley's Ridge College Pioneers. The STLCOP team was hoping for a repeat of the first part of the home-and-home series against the Pioneers in January, when the Lady Euts won 81-74. But a slow offensive first half prevented the STLCOP team from enjoying another victory over the Pioneers. Shooting only 10 percent from the field in the first half, the Lady Euts were down 36-14 at half time. The Eutectic team woke up in the second half, improving their shooting to 48 percent and scoring 42 points, but it was still not enough to catch up. The Pioneers defeated the Lady Euts 82-56. Santhuff again led the team with 19 points, while Cohen came close to a double-double with eight points and 10 rebounds for the Euts.

The Eutectic women's basketball team finished the 2012-13 season with a 3-19 record and in ninth place in the KIAC. With a complete roster of first- and second-year players, no seniors will be lost this year and the young team has a full two years to gain more collegiate basketball experience and grow together as a team. As a first-year, Santhuff has
made her mark, leading the team in points and steals, averaging 8.6 points per game and earning a 14th- and 15th-place ranking in the KIAC for three-point field goals per game (1.20) and steals per game (1.25). Fellow-first year Allie Farr, has found her way into second place position in the KIAC for blocks per game (1.53) and total blocks (29), while Cohen's blocking average of 0.46 per game puts her at 12th in the KIAC and helps the Lady Euts rank fourth as a team in that category.


Lady Euts Suffer Defeat to Brescia

In their final conference game of the season, the Eutectic women's basketball team suffered a loss to the Brescia University Bearcats, 96-45, Tuesday, Feb. 12 in the Pillbox. The Lady Euts struggled to find the basket in the first 10 minutes of the game, allowing the Bearcats to pull ahead by 20 points early on. Down 45-20 at halftime, the Lady Euts scored another 25 points in the second half, but it was not enough. A lack of rebounding (28 STLCOP rebounds to Brescia's 41) and poor free throw shooting (6-for-23) did not help the Lady Eutectic squad's cause.

First-year forward Jaime Everett led the Eutectic team, making 10-of-12 shots for 20 points to go along with six rebounds. First-year guard Emi Santhuff had 10 points and three assists for the Lady Euts.

The STLCOP women's team is now 2-18 with two games left on the schedule. This Friday, Feb. 15, the Lady Euts will host the Logan Chiropractic College Llamas for their homecoming game at 6 p.m., before heading to Paragould, Ark., on Saturday, Feb. 16, to play Crowley's Ridge College in their final game of the season.
