community mourns loss of three students
Brady ashe
Chief News Writer
Three University of Dayton undergraduate students died in unrelated
incidents during the summer.
William Tobin, a 19-year-old sophomore marketing major from Chicago,
died of craniocerebral injuries on June
2 after a fall near DePaul University, according to
Daniel Arnold, a senior pre-medicine major and honors student from
Gahanna, Ohio, died June 5 at age 21
from complications following a May 26
canoe accident in the Little Miami River. Arnold was canoeing with friends
on the river in Warren County, Ohio,
when he upended his canoe and hit
his head on a rock. He was found unresponsive and flown by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital where
he died, according to
Edward Brown, a senior communication major from Mt. Laurel, N.J.,
died on Aug. 3, at age 22. Flyer News
could not officially confirm the cause
of Brown’s death by the time of publication.
-------------------Bill Tobin
Tobin was known as an outgoing
person who was liked by many, according to his roommate Kevin Sobkoviak,
a sophomore political science major.
“Most outgoing, charismatic guy
there was,” Sobkoviak said. “He was a
really great guy to hang out with. Everyone loved him. It’s been a wake-up
call to all of us and all his friends here.
He had a ton of friends at UD.”
Sobkoviak and his two sophomore
roommates, psychology major Jeff Salemme and business major Mike Collins, said they were looking forward to
living with Tobin in a four-person suite
in Virginia W. Kettering Residence Hall
this year. Tobin’s friends decided that
it would be fitting to Tobin’s memory
not to have a fourth roommate live with
them this year in place of their friend,
-------------------Danny Arnold
Arnold gained early acceptance to
the School of Medicine at Wright State
University earlier this year, according
to The Columbus Dispatch. He was engaged to Carol Harper, a senior education major, and the couple planned to
marry in June.
“He was the most selfless person I’ve
ever known,” his father, Kevin Arnold,
said. “Danny was so giving of himself.
He had great direction and a bright future, but he worked just as hard to push
other people to that point, as well.”
Arnold’s father said the support
and offering of condolences from the
UD community has been instrumental
in helping the family get through their
loss. University students and professors joined Arnold’s mother, Kathy Arnold, and younger siblings Michael and
Alison for daily visits at Miami Valley
Hospital during Arnold’s final days.
David Darrow, director of University Honors Programs, frequented
From left, Edward Brown, 22; William Tobin, 19, (center); and Daniel Arnold, 21, died in unrelated incidents
Arnold’s bedside and said he was a gift
to the university community and the
honors program.
“His dedication to scholarly inquiry
and leadership served, and always will
serve, as an example that all students
should try to emulate,” Darrow said in
an email to Flyer News.
Kevin Arnold said his son’s legacy
will also be preserved through Danny’s
Day, an annual service day that will
bring community members together
on the fourth Saturday of every June
for prayer, service and a community
potluck as a celebration of Arnold’s
life. He also said scholarships at Arnold’s high school and UD have been
set up in his name to perpetuate his
son’s legacy of giving. Harper organized a 5K run in an effort to raise
money for the Daniel P. Arnold Memorial Scholarship, which benefits the
honors program. Information about
the planned Sept. 30, run is available in
the University Honors Program offices
at 125 Alumni Hall.
-------------------Eddie Brown
Friends from as far away as Tennessee gathered Aug. 8 in New Jersey for
Eddie Brown’s funeral. Former Flyer
News editor and 2012 UD graduate
Seetha Sankaranarayan said Brown
spoke often about his love of radio and
music. Brown wrote for Flyer News
during Sankaranarayan’s tenure as
arts and entertainment editor.
“I feel very fortunate that I was able
to know him both personally and as a
member of the student newspaper,”
Sankaranarayan said. “He looked out
for people and was always there for
them. At the root of it, Eddie was full
of great intentions and what has happened is unfortunate.”
Justin Guinn, also a former Flyer
News editor and 2012 UD graduate, said
Brown was the life of the party.
“He was always that guy who got
the troops rallied,” Guinn said. “I was
fortunate know him freshman year all
the way to senior year. He was one of
those underground guys in Founders.
He was a great guy. Cool. Loyal as can
Eileen O’Connor, Brown’s girlfriend
of a year, said she’ll always remember
him having a big smile on his face, one
that could light up a room. She’ll also
remember his ability to make others
“Eddie had a great sense of humor,”
she said. “He could always make everyone laugh.”
Brown was planning to move to
Chicago after graduation. His friends
have expressed interest in holding a
memorial service for Brown on campus sometime in the coming months.

UD officially opens research institute in China
Asst. News Editor
The University of Dayton China
Institute opened Aug. 8 in Suzhou Industrial Park in Suzhou, China.
Ceremonies were held to celebrate the opening and included performances by University of Dayton
students and faculty, according to a
university press release. University
President Dr. Daniel Curran said
over 100 dignitaries, including Suzhou Park leaders and former Ohio
Gov. Bob Taft, were present along
with other audience members.
Located near a third of the world’s
Fortune 500 companies, Curran said
UDCI’s location promotes potential
professional relationships to benefit
the institute, UD students and industries. Current companies involved
with institute research projects include General Electric, Emerson, Eli
Lilly, Makino, Ethicon and Delphi,
according to Philip Doepker, UDCI
coordinator for industrial and technical relations.
An invitation from SIP to open a
facility in China gave UD the opportunity to conduct research and product
development for the surrounding industries, Curran said. Although UD’s
study abroad programs are extensive,
Curran said UD’s previous work with
American industries located in SIP
will create an even stronger global
“With UDCI, we intend to build our
international reputation, allowing for
academic and employment opportunities for UD,” Curran said. “We are
striving to create a platform for excellence for our students and faculty.”
Weiping Wang will serve as the
executive director for UDCI. Knowledge of Chinese and Jiangsu provincial law expedited the development of
the institute, Curran said. Through
studies in Australia and China, Wang
understands the importance of global
connections and intercultural experiences, he said.
“I believe UDCI is going to be a
home for the China Initiatives,” Tina
Manco Newton, the associate director
for partnership and exchange for the
Center for International Programs,
said in an email to Flyer News. “With
the leadership of Dr. Wang, [UDCI] is
well positioned to take our relationship with China to a whole new level.”
As company engagement efforts
continue, linking students with
future employers through “Hire
a Flyer” is a main priority. An international experience proves beneficial to successful employment
in the current economy, according
to Doepker.
“The collaboration work we are
doing at UDCI will have a big impact on the multinational companies
we are helping,” Doepker said. “We
are hoping to involve UD students
through courses, internships and co-

op positions so they can remain on
track academically but with a unique,
cultural learning experience.”
Doepker said UDCI is similar to
Kettering Laboratories with an innovation center on the first with a
design studio, break out rooms, and
a prototype lab.
“UDCI contains five floors of research equipment, classrooms, faculty offices, and conference and lecture
areas for technical society guests,”
Doepker said.
A Marianist heritage center
is on the second floor to inform
students and faculty about UD’s
mission, according to the UDCI
press release.
In addition to professional
connections, partnering academic
institutions include Nanjing University, Shanghai Normal University, Zhejiang University and
others, according to the UDCI
web brochure.
Curran said the Middle East and
Europe are potential locations for future UD institutes.
“We need to enlighten our students with a global perspective,”
Doepker said. “Our current global
economy tells us there are no boundaries and we need to penetrate such
an open market.”

Brown Street construction continues to affect local businesses
chris crisanti
Lead News Writer
Business owners near the University of Dayton said the construction
on Brown Street has affected profits.
The city of Dayton’s construction project on Brown Street began
north of Stewart Street to Wyoming
Street in March, Beth Keyes, vice
president of facilities management,
said. Additionally, the work south
of Stewart Street to Caldwell Street
started in May, closed June 5, and temporarily re-opened Aug. 17, according
to Keyes.
“After the UD move-in, there will be
various lane closures later in the fall
to complete paving, pole work and sidewalk work in this section, as will work
north of Stewart and at the Stewart intersection continue,” Keyes said. “The
work south of Caldwell Street to Irving
Street, however, will continue through
Construction has been an obstacle
for local businesses, according to
Smashburger manager Ashley Schweitzer. Current Smashburger sales
have shown a loss of $1,000 compared
to last summer, she said.
Along with restaurants, retail businesses on Brown Street
have also been affected by the
road modifications.
Keri Crist-Wagner, manager of Flyer Spirit, said people were unaware the
store remained open in the summer
while construction continued because
accessibility was limited. As a result,
the sales at Flyer Spirit have declined,
according to Crist-Wagner.
Over the past two years, sales have
been high during move-in weekend,
she said.
Although Brown Street has been
under construction during the last six
months, many are expecting the benefits to outweigh the obstacles of the
construction upon completion of the
Keyes said the long-term goal of the
Brown Street construction project is
to provide a safer and more attractive
route for our faculty, staff and students
to travel.
According to a Flyer News article,
Cars line Brown Street as construction continues to slow traffic at the road’s intersection with Stewart Street,
the Brown Street construction project
will cost the city $4.4 million, ending
August 2013. However, the completion
date has been pushed further to November 2013, according to the City of
Dayton’s website.
The construction has also been an
inconvenience for some UD students
during move-in weekend.
Max Feldmann, a sophomore majoring in fine arts and living in Virginia W.
Kettering Hall, said drivers have been
traveling at slow speeds near campus.
“The construction makes driving
difficult because most people eventually have to pass Brown Street to get to
UD’s campus, especially when exiting
Interstate 75,” he said.
For UD employees and those working on Brown Street, the ongoing construction has affected commutes to and
from the workplace.
“Personally, I work in the College
Park Center and getting back and forth
to the eastern half of campus has been
at times challenging and requiring
more time,” Keyes said. “The CPC has
probably been the most affected facility
because of the many employers.”

ArtStreet names Brian LaDuca as new director
Staff Writer
Brian LaDuca, former executive
director of the Bailiwick Chicago
Theatre company and managing
director of the Theatre and Performance Studios at the University of
Chicago, was recently hired as the
new director of ArtStreet.
LaDuca will lead the programs,
activities and operations at ArtStreet’s housing facility, visual art
studio and gallery, music rehearsal studios, indoor performance
spaces, amphitheatre, screening
room, classroom spaces, recording
studio and café.
LaDuca’s hire concluded a nationwide search that began this
past April to replace the previous director, Susan Byrnes, who
relocated to Cincinnati. He said
he aims to bring new energy and
ideas to the fine arts at UD. He said
he wants to give ArtStreet a stronger presence on campus.
“I want [ArtStreet] to be a hub
of life,” LaDuca said. “I want the
neighborhood to be influenced
by the beaming light that is ArtStreet.”
LaDuca was selected because
of his experience in both producing his own art and teaching art
to others, said the search committee’s co-chairs Amy Anderson,
director of the Center for International Programs and Eileen Carr,
the Arts Series coordinator.
The committee was made up of
10 people who represent a wide variety of disciplines and groups at
UD, including visual arts, physics,
music, Flyer Enterprises and the
offices of multicultural affairs and
student development.
“Students will notice that [LaDuca] has an exceptional level
of energy, always has a smile on
his face, is always interested in
welcoming students’ input, and is
completely excited about being at
UD,” Carr said.
LaDuca’s admitted passion for
the position and his impressive
resumé set him apart from other
applicants, said search committee
member Sean Holdmeyer, a senior
operations management and leadership major and CEO of Flyer
LaDuca’s vision to utilize his
network and theatre experience
from Chicago to develop ArtStreet
made him an attractive candidate,
Holdmeyer said.
LaDuca holds a master’s degree in directing for the state and
screen from the Johnny Carson
School of Theater and Film at
the University of Nebraska and a
bachelor’s degree in performance
studies from the University of Illinois. He is an associate member
of the Society of Directors and
Choreographers and former managing director of the nation’s oldest college theatre program, the
Johnny Carson School of Theatre
and Film.
“I’m extremely excited to see
what he will bring to ArtStreet, the
University of Dayton, and even the
city of Dayton as a whole,” Holdemeyer said.
LaDuca said he aims to integrate a wide array of disciplines
[email protected]
and interests into ArtStreet’s programs including history, the sciences and foreign cultures. He said
achieving this goal would allow an
educational experience through
artistic expression.
One of many ways to reach this
multidisciplinary objective, he
said, could be selecting a theme
for ArtStreet that coincides with
an undergraduate history class’s
curriculum. ArtStreet would then
produce food, music and art displays according to given theme.
“Susan Byrnes will be missed,
but we’re lucky to have found
such a great replacement,” said
ArtStreet events coordinator and
senior marketing major Annie
Boone. “It’ll be fun to hold some
new events we’ve never done before.”
LaDuca said he believes no
boundaries exist for ArtStreet’s
potential to influence the community.
“I’m looking forward to the untapped energy,” he said. “It seems
like there’s this hunger for big,
outside the box thinking. For me,
that’s all it is, man. Let’s shoot for
the stars.”

Brother Frank Deibel, S.M., the
nation's oldest vowed religious man,
passed away July 30 at Mercy Siena
Gardens, a retirement community
and assisted living facility, in Dayton. Deibel was just weeks away
from turning 104 and celebrating 86
years since first taking his vows into
the Society of Mary.
Deibel worked at the University
of Dayton’s libraries until moving to
Mercy Siena in 2003. He was known
for his love of people and kept in
touch with more than 100 friends
through email.
“He had a very positive spirit,
a child-like quality that everyone
loved,” said Father Thomas Schro-
er, former director of the Marianist
community at Mercy.
Deibel was born in Columbus,
Ohio, in 1908. He attended the Marianist Postulate at Mount St. John, a
school for boys interested in becoming Marianists as adults, according
to a University of Dayton press release. The press release also noted
that he was the oldest vowed religious man known by the National
Religious Retirement Office of the
U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
According to a Flyer News article,
Deibel knew he wanted to join the
Marianist community from a young
age. He believed he needed to “save
his soul” and saw the community as
a good opportunity to do so.
Deibel took his first vows as a
member of the Society of Mary on
Aug. 15, 1926 and graduated from UD
in 1929. He went on to earn a degree
in library science from Western Reserve University.
After teaching in various Ohio
Catholic schools, Deibel returned to
UD in 1954 to work in the libraries.
He was in charge of hiring students
at the libraries and enjoyed getting
to know them.
Father Tom Stanley worked with
Deibel at UD and moved to Mercy Siena at the same time as him in 2003.
Stanley said he remembers Deibel’s
“late night rounds” when he would
go around Mercy Siena leaving encouraging notes for the residents
who had fallen ill or needed a friend.
He also said he admired Deibel for
his eagerness to learn and embrace
“As people grow older, they shy
away from new technologies but
Brother Frank reveled in them,”
Stanley said. “He used them to stay
in contact with friends and family,
pass along new findings and stay in
touch with what was happening in
the world.”
Up until the end of his life, Deibel
was visiting with others and sharing
his love of the Mary, the mother of
Deibel’s life was celebrated Aug. 4
in the in the University of Dayton’s
Immaculate Conception Chapel. He
is survived by a niece, four nephews,
and several grandnieces and grandnephews.

UD professors offer help as DECA opens elementary school
Staff Writer
As classes begin at the University of Dayton, another Dayton
school is opening its doors to students.
Dayton Early College Academy
Prep is an innovative early college
preparatory school whose aim is
“to create a college-going community,” said Judy Hennessey, the
superintendent and CEO of the
Dayton Early College Academy.
For the first time, children from
kindergarten to the sixth grade
will be able to attend DECA Prep
this fall.
Diane Blackburn, the principal
of DECA Prep, said that a major
focus of the school will be placed
on the literacy rate of the students
and making sure they become early readers.
DECA Prep is partnered with
the Dayton Early College Academy
High School which opened in 2003,
according to the school’s website, In 2008, the Dayton
Early College Academy opened the
DECA Junior High School.
Many of the students who attend this school will be the first
in their families to go to college,
Hennessey said.
DECA Prep also plans to make
the students college-ready by getting parents more involved in the
children’s schooling, Blackburn
“It’s not that we’re just listening
to [the parents], it’s beyond that,
it’s a partnership where we work
together,” she said. “It’s a very important goal of ours.”
The parents work together with
the school to help assess and meet

the children’s strengths and needs,
Blackburn said. For example,
an increased emphasis has been
placed on character development
and education since many parents
expressed that it was an important
need for the children to have met.
“We really wanted to meet that
need that the parents expressed
and really thought it was a great
idea,” Blackburn said.
Character development will
be taught by the teachers in the
classrooms, but also individually
by a special counselor DECA Prep
hired, Blackburn said.
“[Character development] provides a foundation for the rules in
school so the children understand
why we have these rules,” she said.
Another focus of the school is
going to be on developing wellrounded students and promoting
active, hands on learning, she said.
“At a time where lots of schools
are cutting out physical education,
music, and art, that’s what we are
opening with,” she said. “We think
it’s critical to their development as
a whole learner.”
The school will be equipped
with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math lab, which
will be used by students from all
grades, said Blackburn. This will
help to promote a research- based
approach to learning early on, allowing the children to be actively
engaged in their work, she said.
The University of Dayton has
also been involved in the development of DECA, and the DECA High
School building is on UD’s campus.
“It’s really exciting seeing the
students of DECA right there on
campus with the influence of the
university faculty and students,”
Blackburn said.
Faculty members at UD have
reached out to the school to offer
their assistance, and several of
the teachers at DECA Prep are UD
graduates, Blackburn said.
“There’s definitely a UD influence in the building,” Hennessey

Urban Nights to showcase local artistic expression
Staff Writer
Urban Nights, an all-inclusive
street party that takes over downtown Dayton, showcasing dining,
nightlife, art, music and retail, is
offering a “do-it- yourself” tour Friday, Sept. 14, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
One of the attractions of Urban
Nights is located at Garden Station,
a metropolitan community garden
and art park. Beginning at 5:30
p.m., Garden Station will feature
a vocal variety show, Dayton Out
Auditions for the inaugural year
of Dayton Out Loud were held Aug.
3 and proved to be promising as the
judges accepted a handful of diverse and talented applicants. The
performances will include a variety
of poetry, a cappella songs, memoirs, rap and beatbox.
One Dayton Out Loud volunteer
and coordinator, Ria Megnin, explained the agenda of the show.
“Each person will have up to
three minutes to share his or her
featured piece. When everyone on
the list has performed, we’ll offer
up the stage as an open mic,” she
Dayton Out Loud allows members of the audience to both watch
performers and jump up on stage
and participate in the show, according to Megnin.
Megnin said that not only is
Dayton Out Loud a display of artistic expression, but it is also a
fundraiser with donations benefiting the City Beets program of Five
Rivers Metro Parks.
Megnin described the City Beets
program as an invitation to youths,
ages 12-17, to learn about the modern food chain and become educated leaders about the food choices
of today. Participants learn to
grow and harvest their own food
in community gardens, then sell
it through a local farmers market,
she said.
Garden Station is a fitting venue
for the beneficiary of Dayton Out
Loud, City Beets. The unique, urban hub is a place created entirely
by volunteers and donations from
the community. Garden Station
features sustainable living education and demonstrations to help
Dayton residents become more selfsufficient, according to Garden Station’s Facebook page.
Urban Nights has much to offer
the residents of Dayton and students, including the ability to grow
gardens, artistic expression and a
bond to the city of Dayton.
“Dayton Out Loud is a great way
to start your Urban Nights experience,” she said. “Dayton Out Loud

up by 7 p.m. So come on down, discover the awesomeness that is Garden Station, hear terrific local art-

County fair offers affordable fun
cc hutten
Chief A&E Writer
Students looking for a close-tocampus Labor Day activity can attend the Montgomery County Fair.
The fair runs from 8 a.m. to
10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29, until
Sept. 3 with a $6 entrance charge.
“It’s great entertainment [and]
it’s a good value that is walking
distance from campus. The atmosphere is especially interesting at
night because of the CED lights.
It’s beautiful,” said year-long office manager Debbie Long.
Long said she has worked with
the annual fair for 15 years, but the
fair itself is nearly two centuries
“I really enjoy my job,” Long
said. “There’s always something
new going on. I come to the same
places but do different things.”
There are many activities and
events that will be held during the
five-day duration. From tractor
pulls to food contests, there is not
a boring moment, Long said.
“There are approximately 30
rides all together,” she said.
The fair will feature rides,
booths, animal barns, antique
shows, corn hole tournaments,
food and beer gardens. There will
also be a Demolition Derby, according to Long.
“[The Demolition Derby is]
when people get into cars called
‘Demo cars’ in the middle of the
grandstand and basically smash
each other until only one is left
standing. It’s great entertainment,” she said.
“The thing about the fair is that
every time I go, I feel like a kid in a
candy store,” said sophomore business major Davis Arnold. “It’s so
exciting. I can’t wait to go.”
While many county fairs are
held in the country, Long said that
Montgomery County’s fair is different because of its urban setting.
“It’s right on the edge of the
city,” she said. “It’s more of an
urban fair as opposed to a rural
one. The dynamics of that is what
sets it apart from other fairs like
in Troy, Ohio.”
Long said these events are for
all ages, and that people from all
walks of life come around for a
good time. She recommends the
Zipper and Pirate Ship rides as
well as the animal barns.
“You can be a kid again. Also,
it is stress relieving to hop on a
ride and scream my lungs out,”
she said.

help promote nutrition education,
wherever a student decides to eat.
Dietician Wylan Ganote said she
has helped a variety of people improve their eating habits with personalized nutrition goals and plans.
“Staff, faculty, brothers, even the
president at one point,” she said.
“My services aren’t really limited
to anybody around UD.”
Dining Services offers a bro-
chure, “Healthy Eating on Brown
Street,” students can use to make
healthy choices when dining off
campus. While some food options are healthier than others,
Ganote said it does not matter
where a student chooses to eat.
Instead, she said, it is crucial
for students to make informed
choices about healthy options at
any eatery.
“It’s all the same, I can make
wise choices no matter where I eat,”
Ganote said. “I eat everywhere, not
just Brown Street and UD, but I’ll
eat at Rue Dumaine and the Winds
and all kinds of places, but at the
end of the day I have a pattern I follow and that’s the end of it, because
I know what I’m doing.”
The definition of healthy eating varies for each person. Ganote
said factors such as a person’s sex,
age and activity level have an impact on how many calories should
be consumed.
“So much depends on the activity thing,” she said. “If you are
living in Stuart, you can eat a different way than if you lived right
next door to Panera and ate there
all the time.”
UD students often come to campus without an understanding
of the thought that goes into
healthy eating.
“The issue is most students don’t
have a pattern, they don’t know
what they’re doing and frankly
some of them don’t care,” Ganote
said. “They are pretty well certain
they are indestructible and going to
live forever but the problem is that
it’s not true.”
When it comes to healthy eating
habits, Ganote said many students
begin to eat differently their junior
or senior years than they did as
a freshman.
“Wisdom starts to set in and they
make different choices,” she said.
Much of the food served at UD
comes from Gordon Food Service,
yet each dining hall has its own
unique nutritional information due
to varying recipes and ingredients.
General nutrition information for
the facilities on campus is available
on Porches on the UD Daily tab under Menu.
“The difference [in nutrition] is
based on portion size and ingredients and while most nutrition info
is available from restaurants’ websites, UD is not exact because it is
recipe based,” Ganote said.
Senior biology major, Kourtney
Mcnoulty said that she should put
more thought into what she eats
but that a tight budget and schedule makes it difficult. She typically
prefers to eat at her house in the
student neighborhood instead of
Brown Street or on campus.
“My house is cheaper, UD is way
more convenient and Brown Street
is a treat,” she said.
Mcnoulty said most meals are
eaten at her house, with UD being
used to buy snacks between classes
and Brown Street restaurants for
special times out with friends.

With a new semester beginning,
students will once again walk to class
and go through their routine. Some
students wear headphones and listen
to music on their commute to class.
As this semester approaches, here is
a list of albums that are essential to
listen to while on the go, doing homework or just enjoying yourself.
Dispatch released their highly anticipated new album, “Circles Around
the Sun” on Aug. 21 from Universal
Dispatch, best known for their
song, “The General,” broke up in
2004 after playing their final show in
Boston to an estimated 110,000 people,
according to the Boston Globe. However, Dispatch reunited in 2007 for a
Zimbabwe benefit concert. The band
officially reunited in 2011 and has
been playing shows ever since.
It’s been 12 years since their last
record, so it will be interesting to see
what kind of sound they will have in
this album. Since they released their
“Dispatch EP” in 2011 they sounded
perfect with their indie rock infused
sound with hints of reggae. Be prepared for that classic sound from Dispatch in August.
For hip-hop fans, no album is
more anticipated than Kanye West’s
“Cruel Summer,” from G.O.O.D. Music. Founded in 2004 by Kanye West,
G.O.O.D. Music has had a plethora of
popular rappers from Kid Cudi and
Common to up-and-coming rappers
such as Q-Tip and Pusha T, including
Big Sean who played at Timothy’s Bar
and Grill in March 2011.
“Cruel Summer” is a collaborative
album of the rappers who are signed
to G.O.O.D. Music. The album has
already been pushed back twice and
is now expected on Sept. 18. “Cruel
Summer” has already released singles from the album such as “Mercy,”
“New God Flow” and “I Don’t Like,”
which is a remix of Chicago’s young
newcomer, Chief Keef, who released
the song this summer. Expect big
verses and new sounds to come from
“Cruel Summer” in September.
Hip-hop fans will also enjoy two
other albums coming from Lupe Fiasco who most recently played at the
UD Arena last April as part of the
Concert Charity Committee annual
Lupe is releasing the sequel to his
debut album, “Food & Liquor” with
“Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album, Part 1,” due out on
Sept. 25. In addition, Harlem newcomer ASAP Rocky is releasing his debut
album, “LongLiveASAP” on Sept. 11.
One band managed to bring indie
folk to a mainstream level, and that
is Mumford and Sons. They released
their debut album, “Sigh No More,”
in 2010 and have managed to make a
name for themselves with songs like
“Little Lion Man” and “The Cave.”
“They haven’t released an album in
over two years and I heard they spent
a lot of time changing and crafting a
new sound for the album,” said Amy
Kandel, a junior political science and
human rights studies major.
Mumford and Sons is best known
for their use of harmonies and unique
instrumental choices such as a mandolin, accordion, banjo and string
“I’m not hoping for anything different, just another album which can
truly be enjoyed from start to finish,”
Kandel said.
Mumford and Sons will hopefully
expand upon their folk sound for this
upcoming record, “Babel,” to be released on Sept. 25.
For people who enjoy indie rock,
look no further than Grizzly Bear.
Grizzly Bear became popular in 2009
with their release of “Veckatimest.”
The album received mostly popular
reviews from respected music magazines. Rolling Stone put it on its “Best
of the Year List” at No. 21 and Spin
Magazine rated it four out of five
stars. On Sept 18, Grizzly Bear will
release “Shields” on Warp Records.
“I love the psychedelic influenced
music,” Hillary Rings, a senior
marketing major, said. “The single
[“Sleeping Ute”] is the best I have
heard in a while.”
Grizzly Bear is hoping to gain a bigger audience with this album.
Other major releases are from
Green Day, Muse and the Dave Matthews Band. Green Day will release
their first album of a trilogy that will
carry into next year with the first album titled, “¡Uno!.”
Muse is taking a much different
direction with their new album, “The
2nd Law” on Oct. 2. In an April 2012 issue of NME, a United Kingdom music
magazine, lead singer Matthew Bellamy said the album was influenced
by dubstep and electronic music that
is now becoming popular.
Lastly, Dave Matthews will release
their new album, “Away From the
World,” on Sept. 11.
Any of these albums are sure to
be great, so give any of these a listen
this year. One of these albums could
be nominated for a Grammy in 2013!

Let the (political) games begin
Coverage of deaths rooted in respect for life
As we begin a new school year, we pause to remember the lives of four
community members who died over the summer. We remember students
William Tobin, Daniel Arnold and Edward Brown and Marianist brother
Frank Deibel, S.M., as beloved members of our campus community.
Covering a death is a difficult task for journalists. In covering death,
we confront the reality of our mortality, the injustices of life and the
pain of questions left unanswered. These experiences can cause even
the most skilled and diligent editors to challenge instinctual values of
reporting the news. Covering death, as in covering life, requires both
vigor for the truth and sensitivity for the needs of the community. In
times of mourning, as in times of celebration, journalists must be accountable yet independent.
As our community’s newspaper of record, we are charged with the
responsibility to accurately report on the stories and experiences of our
fellow community members, in their joys and sadness, triumphs and
tribulations, in their lives and, yes, in their deaths.
Such coverage may, in the wake of grief, seem insensitive or coldhearted. Yet, it is imperative to explain that coverage of death stems
from a profound respect for the unique mystery of life. In choosing not
to cover the final moments of these men, we would reduce the legacy
of their lives only to rumors of their deaths. Our community would be
left only with more questions about these tragedies, at a time when they
have questions to spare.
In stating the realities of their passing, perhaps we can begin to enter
the celebration of their lives.

Boy, do Americans love the Olympics. If getting Americans to share a
short-term interest in events that they
only care about every four years were
an athletic competition, NBC would
win the silver medal.
This year, according to the Huffington Post, the broadcasting giant
paid over $1.1 billion for the rights to
televise a collection of sporting events
that, for the rest of the quadrennium,
folks in the USA don’t really care
about, and they did so to huge success. The network set a record for
viewership and at one point turned
archery into the most-viewed event of
the games, as reported by Reuters and
ESPN, respectively.
I suppose that if I’m going to dish
out the media-blitz medals, I’ve got
to go all the way. Who gets the gold?
That goes to the pundits, the parties,
the plutocrats and the people who
make up the American political machine. And this year, fueled by a highoctane mix of economic woes and,
ironically, record-high spending on
most recently in 2008 when then-Senators Obama and McCain held rallies in
the city. And this year, some electionwatchers are predicting an important
role for Wright-Patterson Air Force
Base and the related defense industries in the area. Additionally both
vice-presidential candidates are Roman Catholics, followers of a faith
with which this university and many
of its students are affiliated, and a
group which I predict will be targeted
heavily throughout this election cycle.
In keeping with the national theme
this fall, I’ll periodically write columns
dealing with the election and the policy issues surrounding it, and I want
to see Flyers of all political stripes
writing in to do the same. One of the
purposes of Flyer News is “to serve
the campus community and offer a forum for opinion.” In order to accomplish this goal, we need your help. So
I encourage you to participate in the
campus-wide discussion on the 2012
election by writing letters to the editor.
There are only three things that I ask:
1. Keep an open mind.
2. Support your opinions with logical arguments.
3. Please cite your sources.
Oh, and for those of you who are
wondering, I didn’t forget about the
Bronze medal. That one goes to Leap
Day, the “extra day” that we get every
four years on Feb. 29. Don’t care about
it now? Trust me, you will in 2016.

hotly-contested races, the machine is
in full swing.
As much as I hate to think of the
2012 election as a sporting event, I
can’t think of a better analogy to our
current situation. But, we have to play
with the cards we are dealt, so I say let
the games begin! As citizens, we have
a duty to participate.
If you’re not yet excited about the
2012 election cycle, maybe I can change
your mind. Sure, there’s the usual
motivator that voting results on Nov.
6 will have huge implications for economic policy, social issues, civil rights,
immigration, national security, and
other hot topics around the country.
But you should also know that Ohio is
a special beast in the national political
arena – a swing state. And as always
during election months, the hunt is on.
Get ready for massive campaigns
in Ohio by politicians vying for local,
state and national offices alike, more
fervent than in previous years. The
race between Sen. Sherrod Brown and
State Treasurer Josh Mandel promises to be especially agonizing, flooded
as it is with out-of-state donations.
And, to add to the Ohio legacy of the
presidential contest, Republican VicePresidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan
is a Miami University alumnus, which
could result in an increased interest in
the race in Southwest Ohio.
In the past, Dayton itself has been a
battleground in presidential elections,

Aren’t you forgetting someone, UD?
Much-lauded book scholarship program leaves upperclassmen out in the cold
steve maloney
Staff Writer
For the next several years, incoming first-year students will
receive free textbooks. While this
is a good way to recruit potential
students, it leaves us poor upperclassmen to fend for ourselves.
Under this new “book scholarship program,” if a prospective
student completes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid,
makes an official visit to campus
and is accepted into the school, all
by Mar. 1 of that year, he/she will
receive $4,000 toward books over
four years.
An estimated 75 percent of this
year’s incoming students will
take advantage of this program,
which will cost UD an estimated
$1.5 million dollars annually, according to a University of Dayton
press release.
I get it. This will encourage a
lot of good things. Families will
see this place and realize it’s perfect for their kids. It will motivate
people to apply for and receive
federal aid, no matter how little
the government might offer. And
it will be one less headache for
parents and students alike when
it comes to buying books every semester. It is an ideal move in this
rough economy.
But what about us, the Flyer
Faithful who are already here?
I sure would love some free
books, too.
An opportunity to spend my
hard-earned, summer job money
on weekends and food rather than
pay $200 for a chemistry book
that I’ll resell later for ten bucks?
Count me in.
Now, I’m not calling this out
because I don’t think the new students deserve it. By all means, give
students incentive to realize there
is no better school than UD. My
gest that upperclassmen should
suddenly receive a voucher for
free books for the rest of their
time at UD. That is simply not
possible with the number of students currently attending school
“My point is that many of us who work
extra hard to be able to afford an education
at this institution (and pay for things such as
books) deserve a little bit too.”

point is that many of us who work
extra hard to be able to afford an
education at this institution (and
pay for things such as books) deserve a little bit too.
It would be foolish of me to sug-
here. However, I would go through
any application process to get
any sort of “discount” if it meant
forgetting about sifting through to find the
best deal.
My suggestion is for UD to
throw us upperclassmen a bone,
an opportunity to redeem free
books. How about an extensive application process that evaluates
what each student has done over
their year(s) at UD? Let’s say if you
have a 3.5 GPA or higher, you get
free books. If your GPA is not that
high but you participate in three
clubs or more, you get free books.
Yes, that’s a tough case-by-case
evaluation process, but a process
that would be worth it nonetheless.
If that type of application does not
work, I know for a fact based on
surveying fellow students that
many people would do community
service to pay for their books.
I believe that all students deserve financial stability, and I
would hope that UD did not forget
about its upperclassmen in the
process of forming this program.
letter to the editor
An end to summer blues; student shares feelings on return to UD
What is it like to go back to UD
for a third time after being home,
now that I have two years under
my belt? Everyone says, “Once
you are away from home and on
your own, it is hard to go back.” It
couldn’t be more true.
I left home for my freshman
year of college, ready to be on
my own. I was looking forward
to not having to report to anyone
anymore with everywhere I went.
Little did I know how homesick I
would get. I was ready to go home
for the summer.
When it came time to head back
to school for my sophomore year,
I was ready. I knew that I wasn’t
going to get homesick this year.
Ironically, I made it a part of my
weekly routine to make certain
phone calls. I called my grandparents, mom, dad and great uncle.
And I found that this time, I was
not excited to come home for the
summer. All of my friends were
staying in Dayton, and I was not
ready to fall back into my “family
life” at home.
You see, my parents made it very
clear at a young age that as long as
I was in their house I was under
their rules and surveillance. As I
grew older, it became more difficult to be home by a certain time
or tell them everywhere I planned
to go during the day. I have struggled with my parents, trying to get
them to hear my side. My favorite
line of theirs, when they tried to

explain to me why they can put me
on a leash at home when I have so
much freedom at school, is, “Because it’s just different, Maria.”
My parents are great, but they
are the perfect example of “overprotective parents.” My mom
needs to know at all times where
all four of her kids are, no matter
how old we are. So you can imagine, being home has it perks but
it also feels like I’m suffocating
in my freshly made bed – thanks
Everyone knows moms’ cooking is the best, especially when
you come home from school and
all she wants to do is … everything
(for you)! But after the first month,
then the second, goes by, it’s time
to go back on my own. “Where are
you?” “When will you be home?”
“Do this. Do that.” “Don’t talk to
your brother/sister like that!”
My head starts spinning with
a million word bubbles of mom’s
demands. The fourth month comes
around, work didn’t fill enough
time away and you are counting
down the days until you can walk
on UD’s campus again. You hug
your mom and dad, say thanks but
“See ya!”
Now, going into my junior year,
I cannot wait to get back to UD!
I’m glad my summer is over
and I can get back to my routine
among my fellow Flyers. Believe
it or not, I am much more relaxed
and happier when I am away from
home. It’s as if I am in my own
little world.
Looking back, I laugh at how
different I was only two years ago.
UD has become my home and the
place where I want to be.

Soccer looking to improve in 2012, selected to finish 10th
Allie heniff
Lead Sports Writer
The University of Dayton men’s
soccer team finished its exhibition
games and now enters the regular
season with full force after its two
wins over opponents, No. 25 Bradley University and the University
of Detroit Mercy.
The Flyers began its season
Aug. 14 in Morton, Ill., with a 3-1
win over Bradley. Senior forward
Evan McCreary scored two out of
the three goals for the Flyers while
sophomore defender Greg Enstone
scored the game-winner.
“The first two games have been
awesome so far,” said junior defender John Howe. “Bradley was
big for us because it was our
first game, and it was on the road
against a tough team. We came
out with a win and then followed
it with another good performance
against Detroit at home. Everyone
was pleased with the two games,
and we expect to keep that going
for the season.”
Back at home on Saturday, Aug.
18, UD shut out the Detroit Titans 2-0. Senior midfielder Daniel
Berko scored the first goal for the
Flyers, with the second coming on
a penalty kick by Enstone.
The Titans had 10 shot attempts
but the Flyers’ freshman goalkeeper Chris Froschauer did not back
down and let anything by him.
“The team has experienced a
great preseason, and the team
chemistry is at an all-time high,”
said head coach Dennis Currier.
“Our biggest challenge this season will be the strength of our
schedule. It stretches throughout
the entire season, but our first
four games will be against potential nationally ranked opponents.
Coming off a poor season in 2011,
we have a lot to prove.”
Currier also said the Flyers welcome many new team members
this year.
“In terms of newcomers, freshman defender Christopher Lenning and graduate midfielder
Eddie Jones are expected to play
large roles for the Dayton Flyers,”
he said. “Senior forward Evan
McCreary finished the last seven
games last season on a very high
note. If he can remain healthy, I
believe he will play a major role.
Other returners who played significantly last year is John Howe,
[ junior defender] Jonathan Nelson, and [ junior midfielder and
forward] Andres Acevedo who are
expected to step up this season.”
The Flyers are ready to start
their regular season games with
high energy after coming off of a
rough season last year. The team
has been picked to finish in the
middle of the pack in the Atlantic
10 Conference preseason poll.
When asked what can be expected from the team this season,
Howe was enthusiastic and carried
a positive attitude about this upcoming season.
“We really worked on work
ethic and leadership all spring to
prepare for the fall,” he said. “I
think we already have the talent
to do well this year, and if we add
in those two pieces consistently
throughout the season, we can be
really successful.”
Dayton will open the season
with a home game Friday, Aug. 24,
against the Ohio State University
Buckeyes at 7 p.m. at Baujan Field.
The Flyers will also host the University of Kentucky Wildcats at
home on Sunday, Aug. 26, at 5 p.m.

free admission to all men’s soccer
regular season home games.

Three-time A-10 champions start season with road split
steven wright
Sports Editor
Starting the regular season
away from home, the University
of Dayton women’s soccer team
opened the year playing a pair of
matches in Texas.
Dayton, the three-time defending Atlantic 10 Conference champion, opened the season with a 3-2
loss to the University of Texas Friday, Aug. 17, in Austin, Texas. Two
days later, the first win of the year
came in a 5-1 triumph against the
University of Texas-San Antonio
in San Antonio.
The Flyers jumped out to a lead
just over two minutes into the
game. Senior forward Colleen Williams netted her first goal of the
season off a corner kick taken by
freshman midfielder and defender
Lesley Chilton for a 1-0 lead. Williams, who is on the Hermann Trophy watch list as the top women’s
collegiate soccer player, led the
team with 16 goals in 23 contests
in 2011.
The lead was short-lived as Tex-
as would equalize the score on senior forward Hannah Higgins’ 11th
minute score.
Staying tied into the 81st minute, Texas freshman midfielder
Sydney Shutter gave her team the
lead with just over nine minutes
remaining, but it would not hold.
After running in from her own corner kick with just under four minutes left, Flyers junior midfielder
Juliana Libertin tied the game at
two, trickling a goal by Texas sophomore goalkeeper Ava Vogel.
In overtime though, senior midfielder Krisitin Cummins, who tied
for the team lead in goals in 2011,
put away the golden goal for the
win in the 99th minute to hand the
Flyers an opening loss.
The team has not lost its season
opener since 2005.
Head coach Mike Tucker said
he was pleased with what he saw
in the opening match but thought
his team was going to win in the
extra session.
“We had three really good opportunities in overtime, but when
you don’t put those away, then it’s
one and you’re done,” he said. “We
gave up way too many scoring opportunities, but they were a good
Senior midfielder and forward
Alexia Garcia said she thought
the team played well for having an
opening match away from home.
“I was really happy with our
play,” she said. “We were doing
everything we set out to do, but
it was just our couple of mistakes
that really bit us. At the end of the
day, that was unfortunate, but we
couldn’t be mad because we played
how we wanted to play.”
A bounce-back, winning effort
came in the four-goal margin over
UTSA on Sunday at the UTSA
Recreational Sports Complex. Another quick start for the Flyers
was punctuated by a goal scored
in the match’s fourth minute from
Libertin following a corner kick.
Williams would keep pace with
her teammate, scoring her second
goal of the season in the 20th minute. Freshman midfielder Ashley
Campbell netted her first ever collegiate goal in the 38th minute for
a 3-0 halftime lead.
“On Sunday in the first half, we
were really on them,” Tucker said.
“It almost looked like they weren’t
even out there on the field at times
because we were having our way.
The game changed after the half.
... we still created good scoring opportunities and were better defensively, but we’re not perfect yet.”
The Flyers scored the first five
goals of the match before UTSA
got on the board against junior
goalkeeper Jordin Melchert, who
was a halftime substitute. Tucker
said Melchert had been battling
an illness and being able to get
her into the game was a plus. He
said all twenty players entered the
match against UTSA.
Libertin would add one more
goal in the match to give her three
for the week along with two assists. Her seven-point weekend effort was good enough to be named
Atlantic 10 Conference co-player
of the week, along with La Salle
University’s Jourdan McVicker,
on Monday, Aug. 20.
After being outshot in its opening match against Texas 21-10, the
Flyers turned the tables on UTSA
with a 27-12 shot advantage.
“In a way, we did well both
games, but with the better outcome Sunday, we had better opportunities and didn’t make as many
mistakes that came back to bite us
in the butt,” said Garcia.
Dayton opened its home schedule on Thursday, Aug. 23, against
Boston University, who is ranked
19th in the first National Soccer
Coaches Association of American
poll of the regular season. The
women’s next home match is Sunday, Aug. 26, against Northwestern University at Baujan Field at
1 p.m.

At the conclusion of the first
scrimmage of the 2012 season for
the University of Dayton women’s
soccer team, for maybe only this
one time, the final score was not
the most important thing.
On Jan. 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0
earthquake struck the small Caribbean country of Haiti, with an epicenter just 25 miles from its capital
city, Port-au-Prince. In what was
one of the deadliest earthquakes
of all time, 316,000 people were
killed, and thousands of residences
and buildings were destroyed. Included in these casualties were 32
members of the country’s soccer
federation after their headquarters collapsed during the powerful
The resulting damage left countless numbers of people homeless
and looking for shelter, which
many found at Sylvio Castor stadium, Haiti’s home for national
soccer. For a while, Haiti’s most
popular sport would have to be put
on hold, as the country struggled to
rebuild from the rubble.
However, slowly but surely, the
Haitian Football Federation, much
like the country it represents, rose
again, and began to revitalize its
people. Thanks in large part to
donations from its governing body,
the Federation Internationale de
Football Association, the Haiti
U-17 women’s team competed in
a qualifying tournament for the
World Cup just two months after
the disaster.
Now just over two years since the
disaster, Haiti has still not fully recovered. According to a survey by
Oxfam, which is an international
organization working to find a solution to poverty and injustice, over
half a million Haitians still remain
homeless, and much of the country’s infrastructure has still not
been built. Also, the HFF hasn’t
replaced any of the personnel they
lost in the quake and works with a
reduced staff.
None of this has halted the Haitians however from playing their
beloved sport. As its website states,
“Soccer is a passion and a stimulant that brings the joy of life and
hope to all Haitians, regardless of
their age, their sex, and their economical social statute,” and so they
played on.
Most recently, the Haitian Women’s National team participated in
the qualifying tournament Jan.

19-29 for the London 2012 Olympic
Games. The team finished 1-2, defeating Cuba 3-0 in its lone win.
This summer, the team has been
doing a summer tour of the United States, playing in scrimmages
while raising awareness of the continuing struggles of their people
back home. This is how University
of Dayton women’s soccer assistant
coach Tiffany Hansen noticed the
“I was working at a camp at [the
University of ] Notre Dame,” Hansen said, “and heard that they were
in the States looking for games
against good teams, and I thought
it would be a good challenge to see
what were made of against a good,
physical team.”
According to UD head coach
Mike Tucker, the game was scheduled in place of a scrimmage that
was to be played against Butler
University, but was canceled because of Butler joining the Atlantic 10 Conference this upcoming
The game itself, which was
played Aug. 4, finished 4-1 in favor
of the Flyers. Junior midfielder
Stephanie Emery led the team
with one goal and one assist. Also
contributing goals were freshman
forward Katie Krejsa, junior mid-
fielder Juliana Libertin and freshman midfielder Ashley Campbell.
This game wasn’t as much about
the final score though, as it was
more about the overall experience.
According to senior forward Colleen Williams, it was “an honor” to
play against the Haitian National
“The whole thing was cool,”
Williams said. “We were able to
exchange T-shirts and banners,
and it was interesting to see their
style of play. The Caribbean style
is very different. It’s very physical,
but with no trash talking and no
fights break out. That’s just their
style of play.”
Due to the scrimmage being set
up last minute, UD was not able to
organize any kind of collection or
benefit for earthquake relief. However, all of the team’s expenses
were paid for by the university,
and according to coach Tucker, the
team is hoping to have a benefit
night for those affected sometime
this season.
As for the Haitian National team,
they continue to play on representing their country and serving as
an inspiration to a nation struggling to rebuild. According to its
website, “they serve as motors that
will carry a certain increase into
the self-esteem and also confidence
in themselves of young women of
The team not only serves as a re-
minder for people to not forget the
troubling past but also as a hope for
a brighter future.

Members of the University of
Dayton volleyball team are hoping the luck of the draw will be in
their favor this weekend as they
host the 2012 Flyer Classic.¬
Headlined by tonight’s match
against the University of Illinois, initially ranked seventh in
the American Volleyball Coaches
Association preseason poll, the
round-robin event has quickly become a namesake in women’s college volleyball, said head coach
Kelly Sheffield.
“[The Flyer Classic] is one of
the premier tournaments in the
country,” he said. “It also happens
to be in our gym, and it’s our season opener.”
Joining the 2011 NCAA Division
I national runner-up Fighting Illini are No. 11 Pepperdine University and Ohio University. According
to Sheffield, many expect Ohio to
win the Mid-American Conference
this season, while the Wave are
coming off an Elite Eight finish in
the 2011 tournament.
For senior outside hitter Rachel
Krabacher, the opportunity to beat
a top-15 team for the first time in
program history is a statement in
“We’ve been close to beating
them both, especially recently,”
she said. “But to even play teams
like Illinois and Pepperdine, plus a
good OU team, at home … it means
so much.”
Last season UD fell to both Illinois and Pepperdine in five sets.
In the Sept. 3, 2011 loss to the Illini, the Flyers claimed wins in the
first two sets, prior to being swept
in games three, four and five.
Krabacher said that while the
team is focused, she and her teammates are also excited to get back
on the court.
All four teams will open their
seasons at the Frericks Center. On
the heels of its 21st tournament
appearance, Pepperdine returns
five starters, while Illinois brings
back all but two players, both of
whom were All-Americans in 2011.
UD last played OU in 2010, winning in straight sets on the Athens,
Ohio campus.
Alaina Turner, a freshman outside hitter said that getting to start
her collegiate playing career at
home is special.
“It’s crazy, really,” said Turner.
“For us to go by classmates and
have them say that they’ll be at the
[game] that night is really cool.”
Krabacher said that having a
crowd of 1,000 at the team’s annual intrasquad Red-Blue Scrim-
f lyer ne ws. c o m
mage on Saturday, Aug. 18, was
wonderful, but will likely pale in
comparison to what’s to come.
According to at least one member of the athletic department, a
“near capacity crowd” is expected
for today’s late match, as well as
the other matches of the Classic.
Both OU and Illinois have large
local followings, and last year’s
match against the Wave brought a
crowd of 1,509 to UD Arena.
Prior to the Flyers taking the
court against Illinois at 7 p.m.
today, Pepperdine and Ohio will
meet in a game scheduled for 4
p.m. Saturday’s matches, starting
with a 10 a.m. Illinois-Pepperdine
match, features Ohio against the
Illini at 5 p.m. and UD-Pepperdine
at 7:30 p.m. The Classic will conclude Sunday at 1 p.m. when the
Flyers and the Bobcats play. All
games will be played in the Frericks Center.
“It’s a great thing to be able
to play in front of our fans and
against three great teams this
weekend,” said Sheffield.
But, as senior Paige Vargas
“This team is taking it one game
at a time and making the most of
every opportunity.”
