Man charged with accessing child pornography in Park Library By Greg Horner Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

An Ypsilanti man has been charged with two felonies after police say he was observed viewing child pornography on a computer in the Charles V. Park Library. Jeffrey S. Harris, a 53-year-old registered sex offender, was arraigned Oct. 5 in Isabella County Trial Court. He is facing one count of possession of child sexually abusive material, a potential four-year sentence, and one count of using a computer to commit a crime, a potential seven-year sentence. Harris was convicted on similar charges in Gratiot County in 2004, according to court documents, and was convicted in 2005 by the U.S. Postal Service for receiving child pornography. The Central Michigan University Police Department responded to the Park Library

around 4:30 p.m. Oct. 4 after Harris was accused of viewing child pornography on a computer in the library. Officers arrested him and took him to jail. The CMUPD executed a search warrant on Harris’ home in Ypsilanti on Oct. 6. An officer found four ledgers with more than 400 child pornographic websites, 20 DVDs with minors interacting sexually with a man, and two laptops that have yet to be examined. Harris is lodged in the Isabella County Jail. Robert Holmes, Chief Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, requested Harris’ bond be revoked. “The defendant’s prior convictions for exploitation of minor children in order to satisfy the defendant’s sexual preferences, coupled with his continuing entry into similar websites, and possession of child sexually exploitative material, makes the Defendant unpredictable and dangerous,” Holmes wrote to Judge Eric Janes. Harris will be held without bond until further ordered.

OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY WARNS OF JOB POSTING FRAUD The Office of Information Technology has issued a warning about a fraudulent account targeting Central Michigan University students with an offer for a job posting. In a statement, OIT Chief Information Security Officer Mark Herron alerted CMU students and faculty of a fraudulent account where someone has been posing as a CMU human resources manager named Blaine Sorenson, setting up a fake job post and communicating with applicants.

JEFFREY S. HARRIS UPCOMING COURT DATES

Information of the fraud has been shared with departments throughout CMU so they can inform and prepare students who may receive correspondence from the account. OIT advises students to be wary of job postings from external sites and should note all job opportunities offered by the university are posted on “jobs.cmich.edu.” Associate Vice President of Human Resources Lori Hella said in a statement that students should also be wary of any account that urges quick action

or the exact following of instructions, or job offers requiring the individual to set up a bank account or use their own, as all of these are indicators of a fraudulent account. Students who believe they have been in contact with a fraudulent account are urged to file a complaint with the National Consumers League at www.fraud.org, who may forward the complaint to agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission.

NEW FACULTY-LED ALTERNATIVE BREAK TO TAKE PLACE THIS SUMMER IN GHANA Students interested in environmental sustainability and service learning will have the opportunity to travel to Ghana for three weeks this summer. The new Environmental Sustainability in Ghana Alternative Break differs from previous breaks in that it will be a faculty-led program and students will receive course credit. Receiving course credit allows students to be eligible for financial aid and scholarships. The estimated cost of the break is $2,100-2,300, not including tuition for the three-credit course,

airfare and vaccinations. Course meetings will take place once a month during Spring 2018, said Watervliet senior Kelsey Griffith, international development chairperson on the Alternative Breaks Advisory Board. There will be two site leaders on the break who will work with the faculty. “We thought faculty members would be able to provide better context for students,” Griffith said. During the Alternative Break, participants will work alongside Ghanaian forestry interns, learn about textile production, work on a cocoa or rubber

farm and visit a rice farm. Participants will still be involved in Alternative Breaks fundraising and orientation. To be eligible to sign up, students must attend one of three informational meetings. One meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25. The location has yet to be determined. Meetings are also scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26 and 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 in the Charles V. Park Library Auditorium.

A LGBTQ rainbow flag flies in the wind.

Events highlight an important community in America and on CMU’s campus

L

GBTQ History Month has already begun and it’s more than just celebrating diversity. This month chronicles the strides our society has made in accepting the human dignity of the LGBTQ community. “It’s important to celebrate LGBTQ History Month so we can honor the work of those that have come before us, celebrate the progress that has been made and educate on how far we have to go,” said Shannon Jolliff-Dettore, director of LGTBQ Services, “We’ve had amazing leaders do amazing work like Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, Bayrad Rustin and Harvey Milk. Spending a month honoring their legacy is the least we can do.” It’s important we have this month to celebrate the unique American cultural moments, while realizing how we all fit in our nation. However, there is still hostility, misunderstanding and intolerance in America directed at the LGBTQ community. This month should remind us how much further we have to go and it should

remind us how far we’ve come. From the Stonewall Rebellion to the elections of Kathy Kozachenko and Elaine Noble; from the assassination of Harvey Milk to EDITORIAL “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Defense of Marriage Act; from Bowers v. Hardwick then to marriage equality in Obergfell v. Hodges, the struggles and triumphs of the LGBTQ community are all moments America can learn from and be proud of. This month, let’s be proud of progress in acceptance, understanding and civil rights. Let’s recognize that this progress has made us a stronger and more tolerant nation. We want to recognize the CMU students who have come out — thank you for showing your strength and sharing your experiences with the world. And to students who are still learning

about who they are, know that you are valid and you are not alone. To the students who are in transition or have transitioned — you have earned every right to the pronoun you feel is correct. No one should tell you otherwise. Throughout October, the Office of LGBTQ Services is hosting events on campus to further celebrate and educate students. These events aren’t just for the LGBTQ community. We hope that anyone interested in further understanding and educating themselves will consider attending the events. The RUHCUS Workshop begins at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17 in the Bovee University Center Lakeshore Room. This project is to start the healing the shame, trauma or fear students feel in their life from their sexuality or identity. Dr. Z. Nicolazzo, the month’s keynote speaker and author of “Trans* in College,” will speak at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 20 in the Center for Inclusion

and Diversity. The Brown Bag Lunch, where students can bring their own lunch and take part in the discussion of LGBTQ liberation, starts at noon on Friday, Oct. 20 in the Center for Inclusion and Diversity. On Friday, Oct. 20, there will be a showing of the film, “How to Survive a Plague” at 1 p.m. in the Center for Inclusion and Diversity. The award-winning poet, Andrea Gibson, will be in the UC Rotunda at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25. Her poetry focuses on gender norms, politics and the struggles the LGBTQ community face in America. On Thursday, Oct. 26, the Bi/Pan Mixer will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Lake Superior Room at the UC. We encourage every student attend these events. As we celebrate this month, we should focus on learning about and strengthening our ties to not only the LGBTQ community, but to each other.

Letters to the

EDITOR

Michigan is dangerously close to another water crisis; shut down Line 5 TO THE EDITOR: Line 5 is a crude oil/natural gas pipeline owned by the Canadian company Enbridge. It runs from Lake Superior through Wisconsin across the Upper Peninsula and down through the Lower Peninsula to where it is refined in Sarnia, Canada. As the oil and gases are moved through Michigan however, the line crosses perhaps the most sensitive part of the Great Lakes — the Straits of Mackinac. The pipeline pushes 23 million gallons of oil and natural gas through the Straits daily. Line 5 was built 64 years ago with the intended lifespan of only 50 years. That alone is enough to cause Great Lakes natives stress, because any oil spill in the Great Lakes would be devastating. After in-depth research by experts from the University of Michigan and the United

States Coast Guard, it has been concluded that the Straits are the “worst possible place for an oil-spill.” In 2015, the University of Michigan released a simulation of what a Line 5 failure in the Straits would look like — it wasn’t pretty. The convergence of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron in the Straits create currents that are 10-times faster than the water rushing over Niagara Falls. So what does that mean for an oil spill? The simulation showed that more than 700 miles of Michigan coastline would be devastated by a Line 5 failure. The cleanup process would be much easier said than done. The USCG stated that oil clean-ups on the Great Lakes could only commence during the day and when waves are under three feet high, which only occurs two-thirds of the year.

To make things worse, the clean-up of oil in the winter, under several feet of ice, is nearly impossible. What we’re looking at is a disaster that would bring our state to a point of no return. We would see the world’s largest source of fresh drinking water contaminated, beautiful real estate property ruined and the tourism industry that drives a large portion of the Michigan economy obliterated. So what can be done about it? Because Enbridge is a Canadian company passing through Michigan waters, they need to comply with an easement. The easement requires the twin pipes to be supported every 75 feet. A consultant’s report demonstrated Enbridge knew, perhaps for decades, Line 5 was not properly supported. This violation, along with several others, makes it Gov.

Courtesy Photo | Justin Billau The Mackinac Bridge connects Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsula over the Great Lakes.

Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette’s duty to halt the flow of Line 5 through the Straits. As leaders of our state, this is a a no-brainer, but it is clear they have faced added pressure and compensation from the fossil fuel industry to not enforce the Michigan Environmental Protection Action and the Great Lakes Submerged Lands Act.

This threat must be eliminated without further delay. With strong public pressure, we can protect our state from another major water disaster. It is important that we, as keepers of the Great Lakes, take the initiative to shut down Line 5 before it is too late. No matter what political party you support, we all benefit from the integrity of our fresh-

water resources. Whether it is pushing our universities and towns to sign anti-Line 5 resolutions, pressuring elected officials to act or educating our families and friends, we can all can keep our Great Lakes oil-free.

During summer 2017, Central Michigan University implemented a multi-year plan devised to enhance campus safety for students by installing key card readers on residence hall doors. A collaborative effort with CMU Police Department, Residence Life, Facilities Management and the Office of Information Technology, electronic access controls have been added to the Towers Residence Halls to increase the level of security and safety. It will be added to one residential community each summer. “CMU is always looking to make improvements for our students and this new security measure helps to promote a safer campus,” said Jonathan Webb, associate vice president of Facilities Management. This new security system requires Central Card access, meaning residents must carry their CMU ID at all times. Electronic access controls have been placed along the outside of stairways and elevators in the Towers. Students must enter through Kulhavi and Kessler Hall doors between the hours of 10 p.m and 7a.m. “We chose the Towers because it is our largest residential community,” said Kathleen Gardner, director of Residence Life. If a student must open any other door after 10 p.m, an alarm will sound, notifying nearby residents and staff that a door has been opened. Though these card readers are a small adjustment, the changes have had a huge impact on the students who live there, like Chicago junior and Wheeler Hall Resident Assistant Brandice Wheatley who

believes the system adds to the hassle of signing a student in. “I think it’s an extra step I shouldn’t have to take (having to swipe in),” Wheatley said. “If I’m an RA and someone needs a key-in and I leave my ID in my RHD’s office, then I have to run back and get my ID because I can’t get on the elevator to do the key-in.” The electronic access in the Towers is not the first CMU has seen, but rather emulates the system used in the Graduate Housing Apartments, with heavier restrictions like the elevator and alarms. In addition to residence halls, many classrooms have had emergency locks installed. The controls allow for anyone to exit, however entrance is denied with a red indicator signaling the locks function.

The Towers has undergone Phase I of construction and will undergo Phase II this summer. More interior access controls will be placed in residence communities across campus. Access controls will be added to the exterior and interior doors of halls. Lt. Mike Sienkiewicz of the CMUPD noted the importance of the card readers is for safety. “CMUPD’s priority is keeping people safe,” Sienkiewicz said. “The addition of access control technology adds an additional layer of security in keeping the residential areas safe and secure for residents and their guests. Safety comes with an inconvenience for some, but we feel this project strikes a good balance between safety and maintaining a sense of community for the residents in these areas.

espite rainy weather and overcast skies, thousands gathered to watch the annual Central Michgian University Homecoming Day Parade, followed by tailgating in the parking lots around Kelly/ Shorts Stadium. The two-mile cavalcade for the parade started at 11 a.m. in lot 22 on CMU’s campus and concluded at Sacred Heart Church in downtown Mount Pleasant. Grand marshals for the parade were 2010 alumna Katie Travis of Bay City and 1970 alumnus Mike O’Donnell, a member of CMU’s Advancement Board. Durand senior Margo Light attended the parade to show her CMU spirit one last time as an undergraduate student. “I’m just trying to do it all this year,” she said. “I love homecoming and everything about CMU. The parade is always so good, especially this year.” Tailgating took place in the parking lots at the south end of campus starting at 11:30 a.m. four hours prior to the kickoff for the CMU-Toledo football game. Alumni Village opened at 12:30 p.m. near the Rose Pond area, which featured tents dedicated to individual colleges as well as a 50th Anniversary tent for alumni from the classes of 1960 to 1967. This year marked the first time Alumni Village featured designated tents for “affinity” groups such as Greek Life, LGBTQ services, Central Michigan Life and Sexual Aggression Peer Advocates, said

Alumni Relations Director Marcie Otteman. Kari Ziegler, a former management major and 1984 alumna, also took the time to visit Alumni Village. Ziegler has been attending Homecoming Weekend tailgating festivities for the past 25 years, usually with a group of 30 to 70 old friends, many from the College of Business Administration. “(This was) another good turnout,” Ziegler said. “CMU continues to be my favorite place on Earth. It’s always a great time to come back, but there’s no better time to come back than Homecoming Weekend.” THE GAME While the Central Michigan football team struggled to get anything going on offense, the Toledo Rockets ran up and down the field Kelly/ Shorts Stadium Saturday during the 30-10 defeat on homecoming. The defeat marked the eighth-straight loss to Toledo and ended the Chippewas three-game win streak on homecoming. CMU falls to 3-4 on the season and 1-2 in the MidAmerican Conference. “It’s really hard to make it to the MAC Championship game when you lose two games in this conference. That is just the fact of it,” said head coach John Bonamego. “We have to regroup quick and don’t have room for error.” The Rockets ran for 292 yards as a team, while the Chippewas mustered only 69 on the ground. Even with the rain pouring down, Central Michigan refused to abandon its passing game. Graduate transfer quarterback Shane Morris completed only 17-of-37 passes for 182 yards and had two interceptions. CMU’s lone touchdown came late in the game as Morris found senior tight end Tyler Conklin for a 26-yard score. The Chippewas travel to Ball State next Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Central Michigan then heads to rival Western Michigan on Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Central Michigan University has signed an exchange agreement with Seoul National University for a fashion partnership which will start in Spring 2018. This partnership allows fashion design students to take courses at the South Korean university. Seoul National University offers courses in fashion drawing, clothing construction, retailing, merchandising, consumer behavior, textile design and construction of Korean-cultural costumes. Innovative technology such as digital textile printers and pattern digitizers will be available to the students. The exchange also allows for students from Seoul to attend CMU. Joy Lee, faculty member in the Department of Human Environmental studies for Fashion Merchandising and Design, spoke with faculty members at SNU to create this opportunity.

40 teams brave weather in annual Cardboard Boat Race By Claire Jones Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Despite cold, rainy weather, more than 200 people gathered around Rose Pond on Oct. 14 to watch engineering students compete in the annual Homecoming Cardboard Boat Races. The 20th anniversary of the event, the races are meant to be a way for engineering students to show off their talents, as well as entertain an audience of students and alumni. Friends, family, alumni and students lined up on the sides of the pond as the race was about to begin. Engineering students taking part in the race began shedding clothes, knowing they could sink. “The students did an extremely good job this year, especially because of the weather conditions,” said Brian DeJong, engineering faculty member and race coordinator. More than 40 teams competed in the event. The race was set as a five-boat interval. Each interval, the students put their select three participants in the boat, raced from the north end of the pond, exited the pond and ran to the canal. Then, three people got in

the boat entering the south side of the pond and race around the statue. Every group’s boat was designed differently but competitively. Most of the students used a design that allowed the boats to stay afloat, but others did not have the same luck. Out of the five boats racing at a time, at least one or two boats did not even make it off the shore. The crowd shouted, cheered and laughed as the students tried to stay afloat. “(The race) is why I come out”, said Terra Roberts, a mother of one of the students in the race. “It’s just fun and different. I always have a good time.” DeJong is still reviewing the results of the race, and will announce the winning teams later this week.

Homecoming gold ambassadors named, Mock Rock highlight of Friday’s Rock Rally By Jeremy Agosta Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

A mock rock, speeches by football players and a reveal of the Gold Ambassadors helped kick off homecoming weekend at Central Michigan University on Friday. Rock Rally took place in Plachta Auditorium. The annual event takes place the night before homecoming to celebrate CMU spirit between students and alumni and crown the Gold Ambassadors for homecoming. The Gold Ambassadors are representatives of CMU and represent the values the campus community stressed. These candidates are interviewed and then voted on by the student body. This year’s Gold Ambassadors were junior Caroline Murray, sponsored by Larzelere Hall, and senior Jason Hall, sponsored by the registered student organization Spectrum. The candidates for the Gold Ambassador were senior Kara Agby, Murray, senior Samantha Berryhill, senior Jennifer Peacock, senior Kristen Cody, Hall, senior Joshua Belcher, senior Matthew Boak, senior Amani Johnson and senior Zachary Oborne. Tim Otteman served as host of Rock Rally. A faculty member in Recreation, Parks and Leisure Services Administration, Otteman said he loved participating in CMU homecoming festivities. “To be involved in homecoming is an absolute honor,” Otteman said. The CMU Marching Band kicked off the festivities by playing the fight song. “(Rock Rally) helps unite us for a common cause and lets us make fools of ourselves,” said senior Emily Seward.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM AROUND CAMPUS

LEGENDS OF THE DARK TOURS START THURSDAY Trout Hall will be hosting its 22nd annual Legends of the Dark haunted campus tours and fundraiser this week. The walking tours will take place from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, Thursday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Oct. 20. The annual event raises money for local charities. It also gives CMU students and community members an opportunity to hear haunted stories and explore some lesserknown areas of campus. This year, Trout has partnered with Isabella Country Restoration House and will donate proceeds from the event to this organization, which addresses homelessness

in Isabella County and provides immediate, temporary housing for homeless individuals. The haunted tours leave every 10 minutes from the Down Under Food Court in the Bovee University Center and typically last about 60 minutes. Tickets can be purchased at the door of the Down Under Food Court for $5 or for $4 if purchased in advance in Trout Hall. There is a parental caution for anyone under the age of 13. Attendees should arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled time of the tour. -Alec Jones Staff Reporter

stage, it was followed by the cheer and football teams. The mock rock competition between residence halls was one of the main draws of the event. Mock rock is a competition between groups that coordinated dances. These routines were performances by various dance teams

and bands from around campus, including the CMU Dance Team; On the Rox, an all-female a cappella group; the CMU Hip Hop club; and Fish N’ Chips, an all-male a cappella group. “It was great to perform on stage with some of my best friends. It’s an experience I will always remember,” said sophomore Jenna

Perugi, a member of Hip Hop club. This year, the theme for the mock rock was “back to the past, ignite the future.” The theme referenced the importance of tradition at CMU. Dance themes included “Moana,” post-graduation life and performances celebrating various social movements. The winner of the mock rock and the coveted maroon cup was “Swerrill Hall” — a combination of Sweeney and Merrill halls. “It was so exhilarating and was one of the best experiences of my life,” said sophomore Jena Kostal after performing for Swerrill Hall.

Four Mount Pleasant police officers have received statewide recognition for their efforts to stop drunken driving. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) of Michigan awarded Officer Jeff Thompson with its Outstanding Officer Award. Officers Mike Covarrubias, Kipp Moe and Kurt Solmonson were recipients of the MADD Salute Award, according to Mount Pleasant’s online blog. The Outstanding Officer Award is a statewide recognition honoring law enforcement members who last year sought to

reduce drunken driving deaths and injuries via education, prevention, policy or enforcement. Thompson made 54 operating while intoxicated (OWI) arrests to lead MPPD. He received his award last month during MADD Michigan’s Lifesavers Recognition Luncheon. Covarrubias, Moe and Solmonson each made more than 25 OWI arrests in 2016.  In total, the quartet of officers recorded 154 OWI arrests last year. -Evan Sasiela Managing Editor

Football blasted by Rockets on rainy Homecoming game, 30-10 By Kullen Logsdon Sports Editor sports@cm-life.com

Rain poured down and the scoring deficit increased. By halftime, the Homecoming crowd of students, alumni and fans was nearly gone. Central Michigan football suffered its eighth-straight defeat to Toledo as the Rockets blasted the Chippewas 30-10 on Saturday. The loss was the fourth in five games for the Chippewas. After climbing back into the Mid-American Conference standings, CMU (3-4, 1-2 MAC) now sits in fourth place in the MAC West Division with five games remaining.

SLOPPY PLAY Head coach John Bonamego said Saturday’s weather interfered with the Chippewas’ game plan. He admitted he should have made adjustments. “When I saw what the weather was going to be like,” Bonamego said, “I should have insisted that we make a greater, stronger commitment to keeping the ball on the ground and run it.” CMU was out-gained 21849 on total yards in the first half and 399-244 overall. Graduate transfer quarterback Shane Morris completed only 17-of-37 passes for 182 yards. Morris found senior tight end Tyler Conklin for a 26-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter, but his two interceptions in the second half were the difference. His receivers didn’t do Morris any favors as they dropped several passes throughout the game. The Chippewas were helpless on the ground as well, as they totaled just 69 rushing yards.

Mackenzie Brockman | Assistant Photo Editor Sophomore running back Jonathan Ward falls after getting tackled by a University of Toledo player during the homecoming game against the University of Toledo on Oct. 14 in Kelly/Shorts Stadium.

Bonamego said his team’s 21 carries weren’t enough to gain momentum in the contest. “We could’ve helped our football team. I could’ve helped our football team by having a game plan around running the ball more,” Bonamego said. “We could’ve run it more consistently in the first half. We adjusted, but it wasn’t enough.”

RUNNING ROCKETS Without its star wide receiver, Cody Thompson, Toledo had no choice but to keep the ball on the ground — something they had no trouble with. Toledo running backs Terry Swanson and Shakif Seymour combined for a whopping 292 yards on the ground. Swanson started the game with a 48-yard

rushing touchdown in the first quarter and added a 22-yard score in the second quarter. The Rockets ran the ball 56 times as a team and only passed 18 times. UT also dominated the time of possession 37:47 to CMU’s 22:13. The Chippewas were just 3-of-13 on third down. CMU had two turnovers on the day, while UT had none.

‘NO ROOM FOR ERROR’ Central Michigan heads to Muncie, Indiana next Saturday to take on the Ball State Cardinals (2-4, 0-2). Kickoff is at 3 p.m. After that, CMU heads to Western Michigan on Nov. 1, before returning to Mount Pleasant to face Eastern Michigan on Nov. 8. Bonamego said his team

has ground to make up in the MAC standings. The Chippewas, he said, can’t afford any more losses. “It’s really hard to make it to the MAC Championship game when you lose two games in this conference. That is just the fact of it,” he said. “We have to regroup quick and don’t have room for error.”

Volleyball swept at Bowling Green, loss evens record at 10-10 By Andrew Glezen Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Central Michigan volleyball never found a rhythm at Bowling Green this weekend. The Chippewas (10-10, 2-6 Mid-American Conference) were defeated in three-straight sets Saturday by the Falcons (10-9, 7-1 MAC). They now sit in fifth place of the MAC West Division, ahead of only Eastern Michigan. CMU, Akron, Kent State and EMU have 2-6 conference records. “As a team, instead of regrouping we let it snowball and get worse and worse,” said head coach Mike Gawlik. “We have a lot to work on this week.” Grace Butler led CMU with 25 assists, while Jordan Bueter tallied seven kills.

Bowling Green was led by Jessi Holly, who registered 10 kills. The Falcons had four players who earned five kills or more. After jumping out to a 14-8 lead, BGSU won the first set 25-15. The Chippewas found themselves in a hole again in the second set, trailing 14-7 to start. Bowling Green won the second set 25-16. The Falcons completed the sweep by dominating the final set 25-10. “All in all, I’m not really pleased with the play,” Gawlik said. “You see the results from set one and from there it snowballed. We really need to step up and get back to getting better.” Central Michigan fell 3-1 to Miami (Ohio) on Friday to start the weekend. Bueter and Robertson combined for 25 kills

in the four-set defeat. CMU took the opening set, 25-23, but lost the next three by a combined 23 points. Robertson finished with 11 kills, three digs and a block. While Bueter registered 14 digs and a team-high 14 kills. CMU has only one win in its last seven matches. The Chippewas’ win in this streak came against Eastern Michigan, who sits at the bottom of the MAC East Division. CMU takes on Buffalo at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20 at McGuirk Arena. The Chippewas then host Akron at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21. Last season, CMU topped Buffalo in New York, 3-2. The Bulls hold a 11-8 record and are coming off two wins this weekend against Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.

Women’s basketball players reunite at annual scrimmage By Dylan Goetz Assistant Sports Editor sports@cm-life.com

Players from the 2016-17 Central Michigan women’s basketball team received their championship rings before the Maroon and Gold scrimmage Saturday. Last season’s Mid-American Conference regular season championship was CMU’s first since 1985. “It was awesome,” head coach Sue Guevara said. “We have had (the rings) for a little bit, but it was really nice to do that in front of fans and family.” At the annual Maroon and Gold scrimmage on Oct. 14, the current women’s basketball team (Maroon) topped a team of former players (Gold) by 19 points. Alumna Jewel Cotton headlined the group of

nine former women’s basketball players. Senior guard Cassie Breen started the game with two 3-pointers. Junior guard Presley Hudson took advantage of the alumni’s slow transition to shoot at the top of the 3-point line for the Maroon team. Hudson, an All-MAC selection last season, showed her passing and shooting ability as a point guard in Saturday’s scrimmage. The 5-foot-6 junior was named a team MVP after winning the MAC regular season championship last year. She led the Chippewas in scoring with 16.8 points per game and finished first in the MAC with a 92.6 free-throw percentage. Against Ball State in McGuirk Arena last year, Hudson hit nine three-pointers and

Multiple runners set career-bests in Pre-Nationals meet By Jake Clark Staff Reporter

Solidifying those lineups are Sweiton and Kaczor’s first priority.

news@cm-life.com

Only nine Central Michigan cross country runners will travel to the Mid-American Conference Championships. Head coaches Jenny Sweiton and Matt Kaczor have limited time to figure out their final lineups. Kaczor said Oct. 14’s Pre-Nationals in Louisville would be the deciding factor. Both the men’s and women’s team brought out 10 runners – seven in the seeded race – which leaves one out for the MAC Championships. Kaczor said Pre-Nationals is a good preview of the course for the NCAA Championships for any athlete who travels to the MAC Championships in November.

WOMEN’S RESULTS In the women’s 6K, senior Taylor Aguillon (21:03.8) was the first Chippewa to cross the finish line, taking 87th of 288. Her time was 54 seconds faster than her only other 6k of the season at the MSU Invitational on Sept. 15. Junior Megan O’Neil (21:20.8) took 117th, her time just .9 seconds short of a career-best she set last season at the Mid-American Conference Championships. Freshman Alexis Grandys (22:24.6) shattered her careerbest 6k finish of 24:56.7 set at MSU, placing 223rd. CMU’s fourth-finisher was Spanish-born freshman Ana Garcia (23:19.5), who fin-

ished 266th while continuing the trend of setting careerbest marks. Her previous best was 24:25.5. The last CMU finisher in the seeded race was sophomore Natalie Beaulieu (24:16.0), who was just five seconds short of a season-best. The women finished 38th of 43 teams.

Matt Kaczor was hired as a head coach for the cross country and track and field programs at CMU in June, 2013. He was a former studentathlete who captained CMU’s 2004 cross country team to a Mid-American Conference championship.

MEN’S RESULTS The men ran the 8K, with freshman Logan Kleam (24:33.5) again finishing first for the Chippewas, taking 108th of 282. “Logan is just competitive as heck,” Kaczor said. “Today was just proof of what kind of a grinder he is out there and what kind of person he is to just keep fighting.” Redshirt sophomores Luke

Anderson (24:58.5) and Mark Beckmann (24:59.2) were two of the team’s pleasant surprises of the morning. The pair each broke the 24-minute barrier for the first time in their careers. Anderson placed 162nd and Beckmann, 165th. Redshirt freshman Conor Naughton (25:15.0) and sophomore Bransen Stimpfel (25:51.8) placed 198th and 252nd, respectively. Senior Alec Omell (26:08.5), whom head coach Matt Kaczor has stepped up this year, finished 264th with his secondbest 8k time since 2014. Rounding out the seven CMU seeded runners was junior Ben Yagiela (27:20.0). The men finished 37th of 41 teams.

NEXT UP Nine runners from both teams will travel to Oxford, Ohio for the MAC Championships on Oct. 28. The events will begin at 11 a.m. Last year, CMU finished in fourth place behind Bowling Green, Northern Illinois and champion Eastern Michigan at the MAC Championships. The event was hosted at Kent State. O’Neil finished in ninth place as a sophomore representing the Chippewas at the tournament. None of the CMU men’s team finished within the top 25 at last year’s MAC Championships. The event was hosted at Kent State. The MAC Championships are followed by the NCAA Great Lakes Regional on Nov. 10 in Terre Haute, Indiana and the NCAA Championships on Nov. 18 in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” SteveJobs _______________________________
