Saluki freshman swimmer Hannah Reiser is new to Carbondale, but she is no stranger to settling into a new town, or even country.

  Reiser was born more than 8,500 miles away in South Africa. The Reiser family resided in South Africa until she was 13 when they moved to Pleasant Plains. It was difficult for the Reisers to leave their home in South Africa, but finding a new home in Illinois was easy because Hannah’s father, Troy, met her mother, Jackie, while she swam at SIU.

  The move was one of the most dramatic changes Reiser has every gone through, but she said it has been for the best. Living in the United States presented a new feeling of safety that her family did not have in South Africa as well as a wealth of new possibilities.

Barron: SEMO could cause problems for SIU

Southeast Missouri State is no Mississippi Valley State. Then again, nobody is probably that bad. MVSU got clocked this past Saturday in Carbondale by 52 points at Saluki Stadium.

It is true that the Redhawks team has yet to get a win in 2017 (0-2) and were beaten by non-scholarship FBS Dayton 25-23 this past Saturday. That game was played in Ohio, but still, dropping one to a team whose players are not on scholarship opens some questions for Head Coach Tom Matukewitcz. Nevertheless, he seems positive about the season.

“I’m happy about how we competed,” said Matukewitcz after his team’s first loss to Kansas (38-16). Maybe so, but the Redhawks are still not getting it done.

SIU plays its next two games on the road. The last time SIU won an away game was in 2014. That fact is no joke. Even though SIU’s next game is with 0-2 Southeast Missouri State, played in Cape Girardeau about an hour away, it is still a road game.
