The men's and women's cross country team showed up ready to run this Saturday. The men's team, ranked No. 15 in Division III, and the women's team, ranked No. 12, both placed within the top five at the 39th annual University of Albany Cross Country Invitational Meet.
Over the weekend, sophomore Christina Contrafatto participated in the 2005 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Nationals. In the eight-player tournament Contrafatto placed seventh, making her No. 7 in the country in Division III for the fall season.
Contrafatto defeated Jamie Gaard of Gustavus Adolphus College 6-2, 7-6 in her third round of play to take the seventh, spot in the tournament.
The College's field hockey team made the best of a dreary, rain-filled week by picking up a huge victory against a ranked opponent, and also getting a little rest.
The Lions' lone game last week was on Tuesday at home against No. 20 Kean University. The College got the scoring going early, and never looked back.
The College's men's soccer team suffered its second loss of the season on a controversial goal against New Jersey City University (NJCU) Saturday afternoon.
The Lions, ranked No. 14 in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll, have a record of 9-2-1 overall and 4-2 in New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) games with the 2-1 loss to NJCU.
Not even cold rain, soaked AstroTurf or a nine-day layoff could stop the women's soccer team from continuing their red-hot season.
The Lions won three home games this week to improve their record to a perfect 13-0 overall and 7-0 in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC).
Despite playing one of its best games of the season, the Lions' football team could not hold onto a lead and fell short in a disappointing 30-17 loss at Western Connecticut State University Saturday afternoon.
Early in the fourth quarter, the Lions took a 17-10 lead after senior place-kicker Blake Abbott converted a season-long 42-yard field goal, but that's when the Colonials used a little Homecoming magic to get back into the game and score 20 unanswered points in the final frame.
There are still no exact figures on the death toll of Hurricane Katrina, but it is a number above 1,100.
More than 10,000 people are forced to rebuild their lives and homes. Millions of people were glued to the TV and the Internet following the events and the coverage of the second hurricane, Rita.
A common trend I've noticed amongst my friends is a great deal of indifference to the upcoming gubernatorial election. This is understandable.
While the president possesses the ability to send Americans to die in a quagmire thousands of miles away, many people believe that the governor makes little or no difference to them.
Well over a month after making landfall in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina and the human tragedy it caused still are still eliciting awe. This was the general reaction from all present at last week's panel discussion "Reporting the 'Other': Media in the Eye of Katrina," part of Community Learning Day.
As part of Community Learning Day, Donald Lovett, associate professor of biology, helped coordinate "The Evolution, Creationism and Intelligent Design Conflict in Public Schools: Understanding the Issues from Historical, Scientific and Sociological Perspectives" panel.
