SHARE College notebook: Low saves the day as DePaul beats Marquette

Stevenson alumnus Quentin Low was the hero in the DePaul men’s soccer team’s season-ending upset of then-No. 10/19 Marquette Nov. 8 at Wish Field in Chicago. The freshman goalkeeper came in after just 7:32 to replace the injured Eric Sorby, a senior and Mundelein alumnus. Low played the rest of the game, allowing just one goal and recording four saves en route to the 2-1 victory.

The upset win was Low’s first game action of his collegiate career. Sorby had previously held down the position for the Blue Demons, starting 17 games this season.

The win happened to come on senior day, and DePaul started all seven of its seniors, including Libertyville alumnus Kyle Gustafson. Also on this year’s team were Maine South alumnus Simon Megally and Stevenson alumnus Jack Rubin.

Gustafson, a senior defender from Libertyville, played in 18 games this season for the Blue Demons. He finished with three points (1 goal, 1 assist) on nine shots. Megally, a freshman midfielder from Park Ridge, played in 15 games, recording three points (1 assist, 1 goal) on 24 shots.

Hinsdale Central alumna Muriel Battaglia, a junior midfielder on the Yale women’s soccer team, was recently named to the Capital One Academic All-District I first team.

Battaglia, a Hinsdale native, started 15 of the Bulldogs’ 16 games this season. She finished the season with one goal on seven shots.

Lake Forest Academy alumna Georgiana Wagemann is also a member of the Yale women’s soccer team. The junior forward from Lake Bluff appeared in 15 games for the Bulldogs, recording one assist.

Glenbrook South alumnus Jared Lowell recently signed a contract to play professional hockey with IFK Ore in Sweden.

Lowell, a high school state champion and former Arizona Wildcat, previously played in Belgium for the IHC Leuven.

Maine East alumna and former Oakton Community College runner Anna Galvez, a senior on the Saint Xavier women’s cross country team, placed second on her team and 22nd overall at the 2013 Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Cross Country Championships Nov. 11 at Sunset Hills Farm County Park in Valparaiso, Ind.

The Glenview native finished with a time of 19 minutes, 41.6 seconds, helping the Cougars finish in fifth place out of 11 teams. It was Saint Xavier’s final meet of the season.
