PBSC’s Honors Academic Journal The Spring 2019 edition of Sabiduría, Palm Beach State College’s Dr. Floyd F. Koch Honors College Academic Journal, is now included in the online catalog of the Library of Congress. The peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal highlights the research work of Honors College students. Before being accepted, the College had to complete an application this year which required Library of Congress staff to review the issue and description of the publication characteristics. Twenty manuscripts submitted for consideration in the 2019 edition went through a rigorous screening process by an editorial team of nine honors students to ensure the best that Palm Beach State has to offer was included. Ten were selected for the publication. “Palm Beach State is one of the few state colleges in Florida that offer students in the Honors College the opportunity to be published,” said Honors College Manager Marcella Montesinos. “It not only allows them to share their research and creativity with others, it gives them an impressive credential on scholarship applications and academic resumes.”

Community Nurse’s Kindness Leads Teen to Nursing School after Car Crash Freshman Madison Watson has gone from ICU patient to student nurse. Last year, Watson survived a fractured pelvis, broken rib, injured neck and damaged spleen in a car crash that landed her in St. Mary’s Medical Center for 12 days, most of which were in the Intensive Care Unit. The ordeal also helped the Stuart resident clarify her career aspirations: she knew she wanted to be a nurse, and she wanted to study at Palm Beach Atlantic. While Watson was in the hospital recovering, she befriended her nurse, Jenna Martin ’17, an adjunct clinical professor and student in the University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program. Martin helped Watson endure excruciating pain by writing down the times when she would next receive her medication. After one of her shifts ended, Martin brought Watson food that she craved from being unable to eat for 10 days and stayed to talk about nursing and life. At the time, Watson was unde-

cided about whether she wanted to study business, teaching or nursing. She made up her mind after meeting Martin and other nurses from PBA as a result of her car crash, she said. Martin credits PBA’s integration of faith for equipping her to best care for her patients. “It’s really hard for me to understand how people can be in nursing without knowing Christ,” Martin said. “When you have the foundation of Christ, which PBA helps you with, it gives you a different worldview for how you do your job and interact with people.” Nurse and former patient reunited in Oceanview Hall, home to the School of Nursing, this fall for the first time in nearly a year. “I want to help people like you do,” Watson told Martin at that meeting. And she wants to be an ICU nurse just like Martin. “Those are the coolest nurses,” Watson said. “It’s not the same every day. I think if I did the same thing every day, I would be bored.”

All Ages to Light up 2nd Night of Chanukah at Boca Center with PJ Library® on Dec. 23 Latkes, gelt, live music, stories, prizes and more are in store for all ages at a free community celebration on the 2nd night of Chanukah - Monday, December 23, 2019. Everyone is invited to get into the fun and bask in our community’s holiday warmth and the glow of a giant menorah in the amphitheater at The Shops at Boca Center, 5050 Town Center Circle in Boca Raton (enter from Military Trail). The festivities will begin with crafts and story time at 5:30 pm before the giant menorah lighting and musical entertainment at 6:00 pm. Local synagogues, day schools and Jewish organizations will display the vibrant diversity of the South Palm Beach County Jewish community. After the lighting, special musical guest Rock n’ Roll Rabbi David Paskin will take the stage. RSVP IS NOT REQUESTED for this free event. This special community event is presented by PJ Library® – South Palm Beach County and PJ Our WayTM, free family engagement programs that inspire a love of Judaism and reading from the very start for families and children from infancy through age twelve. “We’ll be lighting a giant menorah representing our whole Jewish community at 6:00 pm,” said Rabbi Josh Broide, Director of the Deborah & Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement, a Division of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County – and who will be performing on the drums with Rabbi Paskin. “The radiance and unity of our diverse Jewish community will be unmistakable as leaders representing the full array of our local synagogues share in the candle lighting.” “All families raising Jewish children from six months through eight years old in South Palm Beach County are invited to sign up for PJ Library® to receive a monthly gift of free high-quality Jewish children’s books and music sent

right to their homes,” said Joanna Drowos, local PJ Library Co-Chair. “And through PJ Our WayTM, tweens ages nine to twelve can choose their own monthly books and engage in a safe, age-appropriate online literary community. It’s easy to sign up. For more information, just call 561.852.6080 or email pjlibrary@bocafed.org. “But PJ Library and PJ Our Way not only bring Jewish books into local homes – they also bring the young Jewish community together,” added PJ Library CoChair Miriam Klein. “Families are always getting together with PJ Library and PJ Our Way at events large and small all over the community. Together they enjoy stories, crafts, concerts and fairs, and learn about holidays and mitzvot. They pack food for those in need, meet authors, make hamentashen, and visit a farm, bookstores, synagogues and so much more.” “This is sure to be another great night to remember for our Jewish community,” said Elana Ostroff, local PJ Library Director. “We’ll have latkes, gelt, live music and surprises as we all come together to experience the joy of Chanukah. We are so grateful to The Shops at Boca Center for their hosting and support, and to our other local sponsors, Joseph’s Classic Market, Hoffman’s Chocolates, GoGoSqueez and our Media Sponsor, Boca Magazine, for their generous in-kind contributions to this special night.” The PJ Library – South Palm Beach County Partnership is made possible by generous support from the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, Leon and Toby Cooperman Family Foundation, Jewish Women’s Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

For over 40-years, HairClub®, the leading provider of hair regrowth, replacement and restoration solutions, has been serving men and women experiencing hair loss. On Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019, HairClub's President and CEO, Mike Nassar, donned an apron and served turkey to employees and their families. Mike was joined by other members of the executive team who graciously dished out traditional Thanksgiving favorites, as well as a variety of international dishes, reflecting the diversity of the HairClub family. Nearly 150 employees and their families dined on delectable recipes, including turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato souffle, and papa a la Huancina, a Peruvian side dish made from boiled yellow potatoes, covered by a yellow, creamy cheese sauce and accompanied with hard-boiled eggs and black olives. The Thanksgiving celebration took place on the spacious second-floor outdoor veranda at HairClub’s Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters on a beautiful, South Florida night. The sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season filled the air. Children laughed and played under the stars while festive music echoed throughout the

patio. HairClub has a long-standing reputation for focusing on employee engagement and corporate social responsibility. Throughout the year, HairClub employees enjoy numerous social events and actively participate in philanthropy in their communities. In just the past few months, employees have partaken in activities around Memorial Day, Independence Day, a Summer Party, Labor Day, Halloween, preparing food at a local food bank, collecting back-to-school supplies, providing free haircuts to residents of the Miami Rescue Mission, and a company soccer tournament, among others. “It’s certainly not lost on me that happy employees are the best employees,” said Mike Nassar, President, and CEO of HairClub. “Our human resources department has been crushing it in this area, and it shows in employee retention and job satisfaction. Serving the turkey is just a small gesture I can make to reinforce how much I appreciate the hard work of our employees. We felt it important to include employees’ families in the festivity because HairClub is our extended family, and we are thankful for them.”

Send A Deserving Child to Music Camp This Winter Busy schedules during the school year often limit time spent on music education. That’s why the Boca Raton Tribune is partnering with one of our local youth agencies to send budding musicians to a weeklong, multi-venue learning experience over the winter break. They will receive a rare chance to try a new instrument, deepen their mettle on one they’re already studying, or build on their knowledge of music instruction. Through this priceless, fun-filled experience, a team of highly qualified and internationally traveled instructors will teach 35 local middle and high school students the social and historic importance of the Blues, the importance of critical thinking and collaboration, how to read music, improvise, play by ear as well as to perform with confidence at the Fernando Jones’ Blues Camp International-Palm Beach 2020. Students are chosen based on auditions. An additional 10 former Blues Kids from around the country will attend the camp. This youth development live music project is designed to promote global citizenship, academic excellence, discipline, collegiality and musicianship with a focus on learning to perform songs by ear. It has long been

known that students who study music usually excel academically. This summer, I traveled to Chicago to watch that city’s Blue Kids Foundation present Fernando Jones’ Blues Camp in conjunction with Columbia College. Jones, founder of the Blues Camp concept, is a highly respected blues figure in Chicago and music professor at Columbia College, Chicago. He has produced blues music camps around the world since 2010 and has been performing professionally for more than 30 years. I was so impressed to see how fast students were able to craft lines into very singable odes, while empathizing with their campmates’ sagas. It was more than a history lesson; it was captivation. I watched youth go from scribblers to lyricists, shy to stage-ready in just a few days. The camp, which is hosted by KOP Mentoring Network and sponsored in part by the Riviera Beach CDC, will be held at the Arts Garage in Delray Beach from Dec. 29 until Jan. 4. The campers will attend workshops from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and will perform in front of friends, family and the general public at various locations across Palm Beach County in the evening. There, they will demonstrate

and present what they learned in class. On Jan. 30, they will perform at the Riviera Beach Marina Village and Tuesday, Jan. 31, they are scheduled to present at Faith’s Place in West Palm Beach. After a break on New Year’s Day, they will show out at the Bamboo Room in Lake Worth Thursday night and Friday night, they will be at the Paradise Lounge in Delray Beach. The camp will conclude on Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. at the Arts Garage. Among the highlights of the week will be the integration of a range of fun enriching activities - learning about marine and undersea life from Florida Fishing Academy and painting on canvas from The Great Paint Escape on Wheels - into the student’s daily schedules, making the educational experience richer and more memorable. These children stand to reap huge benefits from this cultural enrichment experience. They’ll build friendships and learn life skills in a nurturing environment with likeminded others. Your gift of $150 will provide a child a tuition waiver scholarship to open his or her life up to a future of boundless possibilities. Donors will be recognized weekly in

POSITIVE LIVING By Robert J. Tamasy

Remembering to be Thankful - at all times What are you thankful for – your career, your family, your health, financial prosperity? How often do you pause to ponder or reflect on the positives in your life – to be genuinely thankful? And when you do give thanks, to whom, or what, do you express your gratitude? For many people in the United States, this week marks two important events: The official start of the Christmas season (although for many retailers, that began around the middle of August), and the observance of Thanksgiving Day, a holiday in which men, women and children offer thanks for their blessings in life. For some, it is a time to direct attention to the God who bestows those blessings. Others focus their thankfulness elsewhere – perhaps to good fortune, their own efforts, or random circumstances. Personally, I offer thanks to God, whom the Bible describes as the Creator,

November 29 - December 5, 2019

provider and sustainer of all that is, ever has been and ever will be. I recognize that I possess certain gifts and abilities, but also understand I did nothing to earn them. I certainly could not purchase them anywhere. I believe the Lord gave them to me to develop and use in bringing glory to Him. And for that, and many other things, I thank Him. At the same time, I do not believe thanksgiving should be confined to a particular day or season. One of the earliest Bible verses I learned admonishes, “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). As I understand it, “in all circumstances” or “in everything” (as another translation terms it) means…in all circumstances. In everything. So, this means we are to give thanks not only for good things that happen in our lives, what we typically define as

our “blessings,” but also for difficult, even painful circumstances. Another passage presents it this way: “In every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6). It is east to feel gratitude at those times when everything seems to be going well. All the bills are paid; we have more than enough clothes to wear; we have a roof over our heads and food in the refrigerator; we have not had any health setbacks; we find our work enjoyable and rewarding. As some might say, “It’s all good!” However, we all have learned that in life, hardships and adversities do occur. Emergencies happen, upsetting our budgets. We or someone we love receive a concerning medical report. Our jobs become tedious, frustrating, even agonizing – yet we have no better options. How do we remain thankful at times like that? I think we find the answer in the Scriptures. Our focus

www.bocaratontribune.com

should be on God, who promises to always be with us and to meet our needs, not on our circumstances, no matter how troubling they may be. In a well-known psalm, the writer describes numerous setbacks and admits, “In my anguish I cried to the Lord.” But then he adds, “and he answered by setting me free. The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:5-6). Having this assurance, at both the beginning and the end of the psalm, he is able to exhort his readers, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his love endures forever” (Psalm 118:1,29). When we trust that God is in control, we can give thanks to Him in good times and bad times. We can, as another Psalm tells us, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise His name” (Psalm 100:4).

Erte Collection Cocktail Reception

Overcoming Toxic Anger

My travels this week took me to Fort Lauderdale’s North Miami Gallery for a view of a huge collection of 1920’s style Erte collection statues. It was an awesome collection and there were many Boca faces in the large crowd.

Years ago, my boss at the time appointed me to chair a taskforce to address a major problem in our company. For me, this became a political landmine, a classic no-win situation. My boss was likely hoping I would protect him from the possible fallout of the taskforce’s decision, but I did not. In its findings, the taskforce concluded the real issue was my boss’s approach to the problem we had been researching. Soon after my report was finalized and submitted, I received a demotion. My boss, who had been an advocate for me, became my enemy. For more than two years I fostered a toxic anger towards him. I felt unjustly treated and maligned. I had become the scapegoat for a problem of my boss’s own making. Seeking to strike back and gain a measure of revenge, every time I had an opportunity, I badmouthed this man to others. After carrying this weight of anger and bitterness, with no hope of the executive ever offering to correct the wrong he had done to me, I came to a startling, yet freeing realization: My anger had been hurting me much more than it had affected him. Even if my negative comments succeeded in diminishing my boss in the eyes of others, my anger was not appeased. Then I began to do something I should have considered much sooner – I determined to read, meditate on, and apply what the Bible teaches about anger, justified or not. For instance, Ephesians 4:26 teaches, “Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.” Thinking about his exhortation, it occurred to me that the sun had literally gone down on

my anger hundreds of times, and the festering bitterness I had continued to feel was giving the devil ample opportunity to undermine what God was trying to do in me and through me. Then I began pondering Matthew 6:15-16, in which Jesus states, “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” Those were hard words to read; as I pointed an accusing finger toward my one-time boss, it seemed the other fingers on my hand were pointing back at me. Pondering this, the Lord convicted me that since I had not forgiven my former boss, why should I expect God to forgive me for my many sins? I realized that in addition to forgiving my ex-boss – even if he never asked for it – I also needed to ask God to forgive me for many things, including my unforgiving spirit. To determine what God wanted me to do next, I read Matthew 5:23-24, in which Jesus says, “Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.” More than two years since my anger began, I finally started the process of reconciliation by calling my former boss – and asking his forgiveness. That did not fix what he had done, but at last I was free of the toxic anger and its devastating effects. Anger is an emotional cancer whose cure is forgiveness. Heizer Media Group

Groundbreaking Marks 20th Anniversary Of John D. Macarthur Campus Florida Atlantic University faculty, staff and students came together with local officials and community partners today to celebrate the 20th anniversary of FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus at Jupiter with a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new FAU Neuroscience Building and a new residence hall. “I can’t think of a better way to commemorate the 20th anniversary of our Jupiter campus than with a celebration marking the construction of two new state-ofthe-art buildings,” said FAU President John Kelly. “Our Jupiter campus is the only place on earth where Scripps and Max Planck sit next to each other, and FAU is working to ensure this incredible synergy is leveraged to create a unique learning laboratory where exemplary students can shine.” The university will construct the 58,000-square-foot FAU Neuroscience Building to enhance collaborative research with Scripps Research and Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI). The building will increase shared research and office space for new STEM faculty and provide the additional teaching and instructional space needed to support projected enrollment growth, especially in specific areas such as neuroscience, biotechnology, bioengineering, bioinformatics/data science and chemistry. The construction will also support increasing FAU intellectual property licensing activity and “spinout” companies. The $35 million transformative research space represents a significant investment by the state of Florida, FAU and its research partners. The $17.1 million, 165-bed residence hall will provide a total of 435 beds for the Jupiter campus that is currently at max capacity. Construction will begin in spring 2020 with completion set for summer 2021. Residential students living in the new hall will enjoy a fitness area, study rooms, laundry on each floor, computer lab and a rooftop patio. These two new structures build on FAU’s aggressive moves to ramp up its research footprint and academic offerings at the Jupiter campus. In November 2018, FAU expanded on existing graduate and undergraduate opportunities with the announcement of the FAU-Max Planck Academy, the only academic program in the world that will allow the brightest STEM high school students to work side-by-side with preeminent scientists at one of the world’s leading neuroscience research institutions. FAU, MPFI and the

Germany-based Max Planck Society will welcome the academy’s first class in the fall 2020 semester. “I am incredibly proud of the strides that FAU and the world-class research institutes located on its campus have made in building a robust life science ecosystem in Palm Beach County,” said State Rep. MaryLynn Magar. “I am honored to carry that message to Tallahassee and encourage my fellow legislators to continue the state’s investment in the unprecedented educational programs and groundbreaking research partnerships that are taking place here in Jupiter.” Other 20th anniversary celebratory events include a ribbon cutting on May 11, 2020 when FAU and MPFI officials open the FAU-Max Planck Academy building. Named after businessman and philanthropist John D. MacArthur, FAU’s Jupiter campus opened on 135 acres of land donated by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in the fall of 1999. The campus established the nationally ranked Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College, the first public honors institution to be built from the ground up in the United States. FAU’s Jupiter campus was built into the master plan of the Abacoa community to help engage local residents and to serve the people of Palm Beach and Martin counties. In 2005, FAU welcomed Scripps Research faculty and staff to its Jupiter campus and a groundbreaking for the MPFI building was held in 2010. In addition to being home to Scripps Research and MPFI, FAU Jupiter is home to the faculty labs of the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science. Recognized as a center of scientific activity, the campus also serves as the headquarters for two of FAU’s primary research organizations, the Brain Institute and the Institute for Human Health and Disease Intervention (I-HEALTH). The College of Education also hosts the Academy for Community Inclusion and the community-centered Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) program on the Jupiter campus. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, housed in the Elinor Bernon Rosenthal Lifelong Learning Complex on the Jupiter campus, is the largest membership organization of its kind in the country delivering personal enrichment courses covering a broad range of stimulating topics that are taught by leading experts.

2019 Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic 30th Annual Weekend Wrap-Up The 30th Annual Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic presented by Chase Private Client wrapped up a successful weekend by raising $800,000 for its ongoing campaign against drug abuse and child neglect. The monies go toward programs that are funded through the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida and through the Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County. “This was one of the most exciting events in our 30-year history,” said Evert. “Having Barry Gibb play at the Gala was a dream come true and really helped us reach our fundraising goal for this year!” The latest fundraising totals push the 30-year total close to the $26 million mark. The weekend's events included a Pro-Am and Charity Gala at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where the legendary Barry Gibb performed to a sold-out crowd. The two days of tennis at the Delray Beach Tennis Center featured celebrities including Carson Kressley, Jon Lovitz, Gavin Rossdale, Kevin McKidd, Scott Foley, Tate Donovan, Shawn

Hatosy, Helio Castroneves, Seal and David Cook. Tennis pros joining Chris included Martina Navratilova, Patrick McEnroe, Luke Jensen, Rennae Stubbs, Vince Spadea and Jesse Levine. Jaquira Church became the 43 rd young woman to be awarded the Vitas Gerulaitis Memorial Scholarship by Chris Evert Charities on Saturday, November 23 during Evert’s annual charity event. The scholarship’s recipients are women who have participated in social service programs offered by the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida, which partners with Chris Evert Charities in supporting at-risk children and families. Tanya Thicke presented the Alan Thicke Scholarship, on behalf of her late husband, to Dana Tiek-Sosa. This scholarship began last year to recognize a young, single mother who needs financial assistance for college. The Chris Evert Charities scholarship program began in 1995 and honors the late Gerulaitis, a friend of Evert’s who was ranked in the ATP Top 10 for seven straight years until 1983.

Olympic Heights Teacher Under Fire for Sexual Relation with Student According to WPTV, a local high school teacher is under fire for having a sexual relationship with a student, fixing grades, and giving students money. The teacher in question, Peter Muhlbach, 53, is currently a math teacher at Olympic Heights High School in West Boca Raton. According to WPTV, Muhlbach’s actions were during his time as a teacher at Long Island High School in Queen, New York. The Special Commissioner of Investigation for the New York City School District stated investigating Muhlbach in December of 2018 when it received an anonymous tip that said Muhlbach had photos on social media with a female student inside a bar. The investigation found Muhlbach starting sleeping with a student in

An extensive report shows that Muhlbach had a history of giving out gifts, and money to female students, as well as giving them the grade they wanted in the class. According to the report, Muhlbach texted one student and asked her what grade she wanted. She told him she wanted a 90, and that is the grade she received. Another student came forward and confessed that Muhlbach gave her $50 in cash on her 16th birthday. The School District of Palm Beach County School said in a statement that the district recently became aware of the allegations made in New York against Muhlbach. The investigation is ongoing.

FAU Receives University Of Distinction Approval FAU’s “University of Distinction” plan for applied artificial intelligence and big data analytics was officially approved today by the Florida Board of Governors, which oversees the State University System. This official distinction will enhance and expand degree offerings at the University and promote AI and data-driven engagement with its region’s technology industry. “FAU is preparing students to be competitive in a rapidly changing global economy,” said FAU President John Kelly. “This distinction will further elevate the University’s reputation in applied AI and big data analytics.” The university is continuing to launch as well as expand a number of degree programs, concentrations and certificates that will contribute to FAU’s classification as a “University of Distinction” for its AI/data programs. Notable examples include: The Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College launched both a major concentration in data analytics and a minor concentration in data science, which focuses on

disciplinary knowledge and the emerging field of the ethics of data use. The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers a Ph.D. in computer science with a concentration in data analytics. In June, FAU’s Board of Trustees approved a new master’s in artificial intelligence, launched in the fall by the College of Engineering and Computer Science as the first program of its kind in the State of Florida. In June, FAU’s Board of Trustees also approved a new master’s in data science and analytics. “FAU’s focus on artificial intelligence and big data aligns well with the State University System’s 2025 strategic and accountability plans,” said Marshall Criser III, chancellor of the State University System. “FAU will help our state establish a more diverse AI/data workforce.” FAU currently has more than 80 faculty researchers and $35 million in active grants in artificial intelligence and data.

sports FAU Baseball Unveils 2020 Schedule

Florida Atlantic University athletics has released the 2020 schedule for FAU baseball, the defending Conference USA regular season champions. The Owls will begin the 2020 campaign on Valentine’s Day, and there will be 32 opportunities to see the team at home in the upcoming season. The slate begins Friday, Feb. 14, 2020, as FAU battles Delaware in the first of a three-game set. The Owls’ first seven games are at FAU Baseball Stadium, and they will be the host for 14 of the season’s first 17 games, and 18 of the first 24. After Delaware is a midweek game against Florida Gulf Coast (Feb. 18), followed by another three-game weekend series, taking on Binghamton for the first time in program history. FAU’s first foray on the road is three high-profile matchups in Tallahassee: a doubleheader on Feb. 28 versus Texas Tech – another first-time FAU opponent – and Florida State, with another tilt with the Seminoles scheduled for the following day. “We are excited about this year’s schedule,” said head coach John McCormack, who will lead the Owls for the 12th season while marking his 30th year overall with the program. “We are looking forward to another rigorous conference schedule. In non-conference, we will play FSU, and Texas Tech, who both played in Omaha last year. We will also play in-state schools like UF, Miami, UCF, FGCU, and Bethune-Cookman. I think it is a very challenging schedule and we will have to be ready.” The Owls will be the home team for the next seven games, the first of which will take place at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, hosting Florida on March 3. The next day, at FAU Baseball Stadium, the Owls take

on Miami in the first of the annual threegame series between the two programs (the other two matchups taking place in Coral Gables on March 24 and April 15). This particular homestand concludes with a weekend set against Northeastern and back-to-back midweek games versus Penn. FAU’s defense of their 2019 C-USA crown begins on the road, March 13-15 in Norfolk, Virginia, at Old Dominion. A home game versus Marist is next, and the home C-USA slate for the Owls starts against UAB, the weekend of March 20. Other road series in league play come at Louisiana Tech (to be played in Monroe, Louisiana, at ULM), Middle Tennessee, FIU and Rice. The Owls’ home C-USA opponents after UAB are Southern Miss, WKU, UTSA and Senior Weekend versus Charlotte to wrap the regular season, May 14-16. The non-conference portion of the schedule includes, in addition to Miami, home-and-home splits with FGCU and UCF, while the Owls will host fellow in-state Bethune-Cookman. After the Charlotte series, the postseason dates are as follows: the 2020 Conference USA Championship, to be held once again in Biloxi, Mississippi, from May 20 through May 24; NCAA Regionals are scheduled for the last weekend in May (and through June 1); NCAA Super Regionals, beginning June 5; and the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, starting June 12. The Owls, having just completed the fall preseason, will return together as a group in early January, with the first day of official practice scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24.

FAU Men’s Basketball Begins Six-Game Homestand

The Florida Atlantic University men’s basketball team begins a seasonlong six-game homestand by hosting Holy Cross on Friday, Nov. 29. The game is part of the inaugural Boca Raton Beach Classic. The elimination portion of the tournament will be held on Dec. 1 and 2, with the Owls wrapping up the event against Canisius on Dec. 4. The Owls will be wearing their new “Paradise Vice” for all four contests. FAU (2-3) lost to Florida Gulf Coast, 72-70, in overtime last Wednesday night. The Eagles hit a jumper just before time expired to take the win. Michael Forrest led the Owls with 16 points, the fifth different FAU player to lead the team in scoring is as many games this season.

Holy Cross (0-5) is making its first trip outside of the Northeast for the tournament. The Crusaders played at Maryland, at New Hampshire, and had three home games prior to Friday. Friday’s contest will be the first ever meeting between the Owls and the Crusaders. Live stats and live video will be available at FAUSports.com. In-game updates for the FAU matches will be available at Twitter.com/FAU_Hoops. The game can also be heard on Fox Sports 640AM. Tickets for all of the Boca Raton Beach Classic games can be purchased here. After hosting the BRBC, the Owls will not play again until Dec. 14, when they host High Point.

Lynn Men’s Soccer Advances to Round of 16 with 1-0 Win over Queens

FAU Football to Play for Championship Berth

The Florida Atlantic University football team will play host to Southern Miss this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and will put it all on the line for the Conference USA East Division Title, the opportunity to host the C-USA Championship game the following week, and the game will serve as a salute to the Owl seniors who have compiled a winning record during their four-year tenure, reached two bowl games and have the potential to be the first class to win two conference titles. The Owls will rely on senior

tight end Harrison Bryant, a finalist for the John Mackey Award, who recorded 10 receptions for 182 yards and a score in last week’s game at UTSA. While Bryant is expected to highlight the offensive side of the ball, senior Rashad Smith also will play his final regularseason home game. Smith has done it all for the Owls’ defense, leading the team in sacks as a sophomore, in interceptions as a junior, and in 2019, the senior linebacker is leading the country in fumble recoveries, with four.

Lynn University’s men’s soccer team, the top-seed in Super Region Two, took down eighth-seeded Queens University 1-0 on Saturday evening, advancing to the third round in the NCAA Division II Men’s Soccer Tournament for the first time since 2017. Both sides played to a scoreless first half before Nils Borner broke the deadlock with a header goal in the 66th minutes, assisted by Alexandre Horveno. Lynn controlled the possession for much of the match, totaling 20 shots and eight corners compared to 7 and 0, respectively, for Queens. QU keeper Sebastian Kalk was outstanding, stopping seven of Lynn’s

eight shots on targets. Lynn last went to the third round in 2017, when the Fighting Knights made it all the way to the National Final before falling to Charleston (W. Va.) 1-0. Borner’s goal is his first of 2019, the Fighting Knights’ 11th different goal scorer this year. The Fighting Knights will take on a familiar foe in their next match, welcoming Florida Tech to Boca Raton after the Thanksgiving break. The third and fourth rounds of the NCAA Tournament will be hosted by Lynn from Dec. 5-7 and will include Lynn, Florida Tech and the winners of Wingate/Young Harris and Palm Beach Atlantic/Francis Marion.
