Improved Evive stations set to debut by cody schuler managing editoR

Editor’s Note: This is the first in a two-part story on Evive Station. Part two will appear in tomorrow’s edition of The Daily Athenaeum. When Tom Petrini graduated from West Virginia University as a finance student in 2005, he didn’t give much thought to revolutionizing how students drink water. He didn’t think about becoming an entre-

preneur or how sustainability and profits could not only coexist but could thrive – and become necessary complements. At the time, the idea for his company, Evive Station, was still two years away from forming in his head. All he was concerned about at the time was selling insurance. “I sold insurance, so I got all of my insurance licenses, and I thought that’s what I wanted to do,” he said. “I worked for State Farm, and

it turned out that I didn’t really want to do that, so I let all of those l licenses expire.” Two years later, as an MBA student at Duquesne University, Petrini attended a conference in which attendees were given reusable water bottles. It was in this moment he discovered a problem that did not have a solution. “I was at a sustainability conference, and all of the attendees got reusable bottles, but there wasn’t

While most students are busy with schoolwork, part-time jobs and other extracurricular activities, finding time to eat healthy is an essential piece to every students’ well being. Tonight in Dadisman and Stalnaker Halls, health educators from eatWELL, which is sponsored by WELLWVU: The Students’ Center of Health, are hosting their second “Eat This...Not That” trivia event. The event aims to help students understand which food options are healthiest and most nutrient dense. EatWELL is a nutritional program offered through WELLWVU, which is designed to help increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables and whole grain consumption into your everyday diet. “eatWELL is our nutrition program that we really focus on in January and February, and our goal is to encourage students to eat five fruits and vegetables a day, which we call ‘five FREG a day’,” said Shannon Foster, WELLWVU staff member. Foster said the trivia game was created based on the books “Eat This, Not That,” which were written

by David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding. “Basically, what we do with the trivia game is we talk about common fruits and vegetable type foods that students eat; so, we compare yogurts, fruit and nut bars, fruit smoothies, and we give them pointers as to what to look at on the labels,” she said. “Also, we provide two options: We ask them to choose which one they think is healthier based on, let’s say the label on the packaging, and then we educate them on the finer details that you’re looking for when trying to pick a healthy option.” Ultimately, Foster said they would like to see students eat as many raw fruits and vegetables naturally as possible. “We do recognize the common ways students are grabbing fruit yogurts all the time, and fruit nut bars are extremely popular. We just want to give them the details of what to look for,” she said. Foster said this event is specifically offered in dorms, and as prizes students can win eatWELL bands to either wear on their wrists or put on their water bottles as symbols of their food knowledge. “We try to make it fun and hands-on with the

Carnegie Mellon researcher to lecture on sustainability by jacob bojesson staff writer

Terrance J. Collins, an internationally recognized pioneer in sustainability research, will lecture at 7.30 p.m. in Percival Hall. Collins is a professor of green chemistry and director of the Institute for Green Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is considered one of the founders in the field of green chemistry, a philosophy based around designing and producing products in a way that minimizes the use of hazardous substances. “He’s director of the green institute. It’s kind of a think tank that deals with a lot of sustainability issues and green chemistry,” said Jim Anderson, West Virginia University professor and wildlife and fisheries director. “I think there will be some new ideas that folks have not

heard or seen before.” Collins is globally recognized for his work with sustainability and has won several prestigious awards, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Academic award. The EPA gave Collins this award in 1999 for his invention of small catalysts called TAML activators that use natural oxidants to clean water and are widely used in the pulp and paper industry. “I think he’s going to provide some insight into sustainability and how to improve sustainability, not only from an individual perspective but from a larger university or any type of business’ perspective,” Anderson said. “Large companies and organizations can embrace sustainability and how

The viral video phenomenon known as “The Harlem Shake” has officially struck the student body at West Virginia University. Monday afternoon, more than 150 students filled Woodburn Circle and the Mountainlair Green to participate in a flash mob-style dance video known as The Harlem Shake. The group was filmed dancing in outrageous costumes to the song “Harlem Shake” by Baauer, an electronic artist. The video was posted on Youtube after the event, and at the time of writing has been viewed more than 300 times. “Harlem Shake” videos featuring Baauer’s song have gone viral on Youtube. During the last two weeks, a series of online dance videos have been posted that feature a masked individual doing The Harlem Shake alone in a group before the video cuts to a wild dance party. Saturday, WVU themed versions of the video began surfacing on the Internet, starting with one featuring a superhero duo known as “Maniac Man and Mountain Momma.” Joe Perks, a junior computer science major, decided to organize a version of the video to be filmed on the Engineering campus, when a group of his friends started to notice the online trend. The first “Harlem Shake” video Joe helped create was posted Feb. 10, and has amassed almost 10,000 views.

Boutique adds ‘flair’ to Morgantown By Madison Fleck Staff writer

Spring is rapidly approaching, and women of Morgantown often cannot find the time to rush to the mall and pick up their accessories for the new season. However, Flair, a new boutique in Suncrest, is here to help. Jane V. Jewelers has now expanded itself with the new addition of the boutique. The two stores are connected, so customers can

have the luxury of fine jewelry as well as the convenience of costume jewelry. “We have costume jewelry, silver jewelry, purses, scarves, wallets and a lot of WVU items,” said Donna Semon, Flair sales clerk. The boutique features brands like Mariana, which is handmade in Israel. They also stock brands similar to Pandora. “Customers really like the brands,” said boutique owner Jane Verbonach. “They asked me if I would get it, and I did.”

Petrini, founder and chief technology and strategy officer of Evive Station, watched his idea come to fruition last April when the first-ever Evive kiosks were placed in the Mountainlair and Student Recreation Center.

a place to clean them,” he said. “There were MBAs from all across the country, and most people were living in hotels – so that’s similar to the dorm element where you don’t really have a solid sink, and you don’t have a dishwasher, and you don’t have all of those things, so my first idea was to have a station that cleaned reusable bottles.” Six years later, that idea has evolved and garnered more than $6 million in

Verbonach said she started the boutique in response to customer requests, and Flair has been in business since just before Christmas. “They were saying they buy themselves really nice jewelry, but they also wanted to have some gifts and some fun,” Verbonach said.

Verbonach ventures to California and New York to decide on what will go in the boutique. She said when she goes to California on buying expeditions, there are many unique styles that are not often seen in New York. “A lot of stuff starts in California,” she said. “A lot of times it takes about six months to a year to get here, so we’re trying to be more fashion forward.” Verbonach said when

Students gather in Woodburn Circle Monday and perform the ‘Harlem Shake.’


Continued from page 1 “Two nights ago, one of our friends asked us if we had seen The Harlem Shake videos,” Perks said. “So, we pulled it up on the Xbox 360, and we instantly all knew we had to do one.” “That night, we created an invite on Facebook for the engineering version for the next day. We had about 40 people show up for the filming of that video,” Perks said.

“With the great response that we had on that one and the amount of fun we had, we decided to do another and include more people.” Richie Yoho, a mechanical and aerospace engineering major, edited the videos. He said the trend has taken off because the videos are extremely easy to produce. “The editing is so easy. It’s just two clips and a song, so it takes no time at all to edit it,” Yoho said. “48 hours ago, we hadn’t seen it –we had no idea what The Har-

lem Shake was – now it’s become our thing.” Yoho said he was shocked at how fast the word spread about the filming. “When Joe suggested we do another video today in front of Woodburn, I was hesitant because it was so soon, but we figured we needed to do it before the idea died,” Yoho said. “So we set up the event at 1 a.m. this morning, and all these people showed up today.” Stephen Scott, a freshman political science student, decided it was some-

thing he couldn’t miss. “A lot of my friends were talking about it, so I started looking more and more on YouTube, and I was like, ‘I have to do this,’” Scott said. “Then I saw the invite on Facebook, and I knew I had to be here.” “This is like a once in a lifetime thing. Not everyone gets to say they did something like this in college.” To watch the new video, visit watch?v=4PxNWaPoCQg.


The overflow of participants in Monday’s Harlem Shake forced the event out of the Mountainlair and onto the Mountainlair Green.


Continued from page1 searching for items to stock in the store, she searches for items she finds trendy and classy to fit the style of the boutique “I just look for what’s new out,” she said. “For this year, they’re saying that the fashion colors are going to be orange, pink, green and royal blue. So that’s what we’re shopping for now when we’re shopping for spring.” Jewelry has been a long time business for Verbonach.

“My mother was in jewelry in Pittsburgh, and I worked with her for years,” she said. Verbonach moved from Pittsburgh and opened Jane V. Jewelers 19 years ago in Morgantown. “I just like Morgantown,” Verbonach said. “It was small then and wasn’t built up as much as it is today. There were not that many jewelry stores here, and there still aren’t, but I just thought it was a good area.” Since its opening last holiday season, Verbonach said business has been great. “Everybody that comes

in is excited, and they love it, and they keep coming back,” Verbonach said. The boutique gives a chic vibe, with purple walls, purple carpet and trendy accessories to fill the space. “Word of mouth has been great for advertising because people send people in,” Semon said. “Girls come in on their lunch hour, and it just really spreads the news about us being open.” Verbonach said she has even bigger ideas for the boutique in the future. She wants to host birthday parties in the store.

trivia; it makes for an interesting competition as they are choosing which foods they believe are healthy, but all the food choices and categories in the ‘Eat this...

new about eating five fruits and vegetables a day. “(Students can benefit by) either finding a way to incorporate them into their diet that maybe they hadn’t thought about before or really looking at the options they have available to them in their dorm dining hall, (so) that they will be able to make a better choice that would include more fruits and vegetables and more nutrient density, so that they’re eating a more overall healthy diet,” she said. “For them to have fun

Continued from page 1 bottle cleaned faster, the option to quick-fill the bottle, improved user interface, more direct advertisements and more locations. “You scan the bottle – the bottle has the passive RFID tag and this time – (and) you enter in your 4-digit pin. And then you have a choice if you want to do the quick-fill, so this time you don’t have to clean your bottle every single time,” Petrini said. “You can do the 30-second quick-fill, or it takes about a minute to do the clean and fill of the bottle.” The machine harbors the same blower that is in the Accelerator hand drier and the North Carolina-based company that builds the machines also manufactures popular kiosks like Redbox and minuteKEY. The bottle itself has also seen vast improvements from the prior model and now is a double-walled, 20-ounce, bpa-free triton bottle. It can hold both cold and hot liquids and the Evive kiosk can clean it. Petrini said no detail was too small to improve, including the cap. “The cap is about $7 if you buy it online separately; it’s supposedly the highest rated cap for Nalgene or Camelbak bottles. It’s an after market cap,” he said. The public will have the opportunity to trade in their old bottle for free, or for a period of 30 days, they can buy a new one for $7, after which the price will increase to $10. Petrini said students who signed up before Sept. 15 on the wait list should receive a free bottle, but the demand was so strong there are no guarantees for people after that. He also said bottles will be sold at a couple of locations on campus. Evive Station will distribute nearly 7,000 bottles to students next week. Petrini said the process is very streamlined; students will receive a new bottle, type in an activation code found on their profile at the machine, and it will sync. Perhaps the biggest improvement for students is that Evive Station plans to expand its locations. On Feb. 18, five new Evive kiosks will go live at four locations across campus. Two will be at the Student Recreation Center, one in the Engineering building, one at the Health Sciences Center and one in the Mountainlair. A week later, five to seven more stations will roll out including two at Towers, one in the College of Business & Economics and one in Ming Hsieh Hall with other at locations to be determined later. Petrini said the law school, the Agricultural Sciences building and the Creative Arts Center could see an Evive kiosk that day or sometime in the future. With more locations, students will have more access to the kiosks, which Petrini work in terms of how universities in particular can and should promote sustainability and how we are currently failing in that scheme,” Anderson said. “WVU does a lot with sustainability, but like everything, I’m sure we can do better.” Collins is a native of New Zealand and earned his Ph.D. from Auckland Uni-

said is essential moving forward. “The last time we were only in two (places), and this time we’re all over the place,” he said. “We think with stations all over, that’s really what it needs to be to ultimately be convenient to the students.” While the bottle is being cleaned and filled, students are shown an advertisement; this serves as the primary way Evive Station earns revenue. Petrini said feedback from last time the kiosks were in place allowed Evive Station to revamp its advertising and cater it better to the users of the kiosks. Part of this includes displaying advertisements that are relevant to the users. “The advertising piece is really coming along quite well,” he said. “We got feedback from the students that they wanted to see more local and regional advertising, and we’ve done just that. We have about 40 advertisers signed up already.” Petrini said Seven Springs Mountain Resort is one of the advertisers working with Evive Station and has a series of advertisements planned for the upcoming launch. “Seven Springs actually did a custom video for us, and they’re going to make custom videos on a frequent basis,” he said. “It’s really interesting what they’re doing; the videos actually speak to the students standing at the station.” Evive Station has also developed a mobile app that will allow users to update interests and store deals offered through the advertisements. The app will be offered on the Android Market, and an iPhone app is currently working its way through acceptance into Apple’s iTunes store. “All the ads we’re putting into the stations are all extremely relevant to the students. “There’s going to be deals and offers that would be associated with each, so as you see, the Seven Springs ad, if they offer a deal, (it) automatically goes to your Evive smart phone app,” he said. “We have an Android and iPhone app that will be available to download, (and) you can create your profile right through the app and do a single sign-on through Facebook, so you don’t have to do anything,” he said. The ease with which users can access deals and manage their profile is something Petrini said helps bring in advertising, because people will be more apt to respond to the ads. “You can take the app to the actual location, and only the offers that are in that geographic area show up, so whenever you click on it, it shows what the offer is, the address, (and) then you hit redeem, and it goes away. “It’s fully trackable to the location and helps (advertisers) bring traffic in the door,” he said.

Grammys continue tradition of success with 55th edition

Taylor Swift performs at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

lacey palmer associate a&e editor

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by L.L. Cool J, took place Sunday evening. This year’s installment was yet another awards show that did not fail to please celebrities and music enthusiasts across the country. “Welcome to the greatest music show on earth, the Grammy Awards,” L.L. Cool J said to kick things off. The show began with a strange but entertaining performance of “Never Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift, who was dressed in an all-white outfit with a large, white top hat boasting “Alice in Wonderland” influences. During the performance, she sang to a man strapped to a large spiral and later pushed him to the floor . Maybe this said something about Swift’s love life. Ed Sheeran performed alongside a sparkling Elton John, and together they sang “The A Team” on guitar and piano flawlessly. Jennifer Lopez, who wowed the audience in a black dress with her entire right leg showing, and Pitbull then presented the award for Best Pop Solo Performance to Adele for “Set Fire to the Rain.” Adele won six Grammys in 2012, but this was her only trophy in 2013. Fun. kept the action rolling with a performance of their newest single, “Carry On.” Toward the end of

their performance, it began to rain, and it was not just background rain, ladies and gentlemen. This was real, wet rain, and it poured all over the group. Fun. also racked up the Grammys for Song of the Year for “We Are Young” and Best New Artist later in the evening. Bonnie Raitt, who won her 10th Grammy Sunday evening, and John Mayer, who was in a blue velvet suit, introduced country artists Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley to perform a combination of their songs “Over You” and “Home.” Lambert’s sparkling gold, nude and black mini-dress stole the performance. Miguel and Wiz Khalifa performed a unique version of Miguel’s “Adorn” in black and white pinstripe suits. Next, strangely enough, the duo presented Best Country Solo Performance to Carrie Underwood, who looked gorgeous in a black sparkling gown, for “Blown Away.” Ellen DeGeneres and Beyonce, both looking incredibly classy, hilariously introduced Justin Timberlake for his much-anticipated performance of “Suit and Tie,” his recently released single, and his new love ballad, “Mirror.” The audience went wild when Jay-Z accompanied him onstage, and Timberlake received great reactions via Twitter. He’s back. Get excited. Another spectacular performance from Sunday’s show was Maroon 5, who performed “Daylight,” before Alicia Keys appeared

alongside the group in a classy, cut-out, black minidress to sing “Girl on Fire.” Kaley Cuoco and Keith Urban then presented Best Pop Vocal Album to “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson. “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together,” Clarkson said in her acceptance speech. Best Rap Song Collaboration was awarded to “No Church in the Wild” by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and The Dream. As the music to cue the end of the acceptance speech began, Jay-Z began to speak, and the music shut off. If that’s not celebrity power, I’m not sure what is. The Black Keys rocked the awards show with their single, “Lonely Boy,” before Clarkson sang a beautiful rendition of “Tennessee Waltz” combined with “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Following this performance, Bruno Mars began the much-awaited Bob Marley tribute with his most recent single, “Locked Out of Heaven.” Sting joined Mars on the song before Rihanna and Damian and Ziggy Marley (Bob’s sons) also joined in on “Could You Be Loved,” Marley’s song which transformed music and maybe a little of the world in the ’60s and ’70s. Hunter Hayes melted every female’s heart in the room with “Wanted” before introducing Carrie Underwood, for whom he opens on tour. Underwood then performed a beautiful

version of her recent single, “Blown Away,” followed by “Two Black Cadillacs.” Clarkson and Underwood – both products of early seasons of “American Idol” – were undoubtedly the best vocal performances of the evening. A hooded Prince then wowed the crowd and walked onstage next with a stick and sunglasses to present record of the year to Gotye and Kimbra for “Somebody That I Used to Know.” A slideshow of pictures and songs from those who passed away in the mu-

sic industry were shown to a somber audience before Elton John and many other artists performed “Take A Load Off Annie” to brighten the mood. Frank Ocean performed his recent song “Forrest Gump” with a performance and lyrics that confused many, but it seemed as if no one cared because his voice was so beautiful. The Beastie Boys and L.L. Cool J ended the show with “No Sleep Till Brooklyn,” a performance which reminded everyone that music industry is still thriving and will always make

an impact on society. Overall, the show was a raging success. The Grammy Awards are the only awards show that still airs on a tape delay. Others air live across the country, and according to CBS, this is because the Grammy is a performanceheavy show, East Coast online chatter piques West Coast curiosity and ratings are strong as is. “It’s something we talk about every year, but the simple truth is it’s working,” said a CBS representative.

OPINION Disgraceful government waste 4

tuesday February 12, 2013

A damning report presented to Congressional oversight committees during the weekend uncovered a startling waste of federal stimulus money by West Virginia officials. Auditors discovered that a $24 million purchase made with federal dollars intended to help build up the state’s lackluster highspeed Internet infrastructure resulted in millions of dollars squandered. According to a Federal Communications Com-

mission report issued late last year, West Virginia has a lower percentage of residents with access to a broadband Internet connection than any other state in the country. Considering this, it is certainly a positive step to see that the government is investing in efforts to rectify this disparity. But wasting our tax dollars in this manner is inexcusable. Apparently, officials exempted this deal from the rules that typically apply to

contracts of this nature. Router manufacturer Cisco Systems Inc. ultimately landed the contract, and sold a pricey, high-end model of its router to the state in bulk. Experts say these routers, which have been installed across the state in libraries, schools and other public buildings, are overkill. Significantly cheaper routers could have been used without affecting performance, and this would have saved millions of stimulus dollars.

Although it is encouraging that the oversight agencies were able to uncover this shady deal, these types of transactions need to be prevented before they materialize. Wasteful government spending such as this fuels the critics who argue against any and all government spending. Congress needs to take steps to increase transparency to ensure these types of deals are prevented from happening in the first place.

Meanwhile, the West Virginia officials who arranged this ridiculous deal with Cisco should be punished to the full extent of the law. This deal highlights everything that is wrong with our crony-capitalistic system, and disciplinary action taken against those found guilty of wrongdoing should serve as a warning to any who seek to do this in the future.

West Virginia’s puzzling pivot to the right christopher nyden columnist

In the recent November election, Republicans gained 11 seats in the West Virginia House of Delegates to increase their members from 35 to 46. A Republican challenger beat the incumbent Attorney General Darrell McGraw, while other GOP candidates were competitive in races for Governor and Agriculture Commissioner. This represents a huge change in our state government, a statehouse long dominated by Democrats. Since 1933, West Virginia has had 15 different Governors, only two of them Republican. West Virginia Democrats have kept a majority in the House of Delegates since 1930 and the Senate since 1933. The Democratic Party has had a rich, long history in West Virginia, but recent redistricting and fractures between the state and national party have caused members to vote for more Republicans. As the national party starts to focus more on issues such as gun control and combating climate change, the state party will only grow increasingly alienated. In President Obama’s second inaugural address, he spoke of action on climate change extensively. This was not good news for West Virginia coal companies, which have repeatedly fought with the Environmental Protection Agency in recent years over mining permits. Obama’s tone toward climate change suggests he is no longer searching for compromise on climate change but rather working around conservative opposition. The EPA’s intentions on pressuring coal-burning power plants to lower emissions further will certainly only make coal companies’ jobs harder in the near future. It is understandable why many West Virginians would oppose these changes, but the switch in ideology is a bit puzzling for West Virginia because it does not truly serve to

Republicans gained 11 seats in the West Virginia House of Delegates in the last election. help the state. Yes, losing any part of the coal industry would impair the state’s economy, but simply looking at the negative impacts the federal government has on West Virginia ignores all its benefits. From 1990 to 2009, West Virginians paid the federal government almost $99 billion in taxes while receiving almost $248 billion in federal spending. This transfer during twenty years represents more than 240 percent of the state’s Gross Domestic Product in 2009. This makes West Virginia one of the biggest beneficiaries of federal spending, with only Mississippi and New Mexico outpacing them. The particularly trou-

blesome part is not that West Virginia is moving to the right. The problem is that by pressing a couple issues so intensely, the citizens of West Virginia are losing sight of the bigger picture. A large portion of the funds coming from the federal government are directed toward social programs like Medicare, Social Security and disability benefits. In fact, West Virginia receives more spending per capita on retirement and disability benefits than any other state. When it comes to infrastructure spending, West Virginia also has very high costs associated with building roads because of the terrain of the Mountain State. But it is social

spending and non-defense discretionary spending, including infrastructure, that Congressional Republicans have voted to reduce in the past couple years. West Virginia is one of a number of states in which the political lines are starting to become blurred, and the terms ‘red states’ and ‘blue states’ no longer suffice. In the past election, Obama outperformed every Democratic nominee for President since Jimmy Carter in the southeastern coastal states. The growing minority population of these states boosted the Democratic Party recently. However, as Southern states change, West Virginia is not changing

with them. The state is still heavily rural and relatively homogeneous in race. From the 2000 to the 2010 Census, the state experienced large percentage changes in minorities, including more than an 80 percent increase in our Latino population. Still, approximately 94 percent of the state is white. While the demographics of many Southern states may change the way they vote in the next fifteen to twenty years, West Virginia will likely continue trending toward a Republican state. The year 2012 represented the fourth straight time West Virginia voted for the Republican candidate for President. The percentage has only grown

each time. The only things that truly stand in the way of West Virginia becoming a red state are the coal industry declining or Democrats’ opposition to gun control, both unlikely to occur in the near future. This leaves the state in a position that will make us almost helpless when it comes to federal budget cuts. The Republican Party has repeatedly suggested cuts or alterations to social programs, and that is where West Virginia needs the federal government most. In the coming years, the state will certainly become redder. It is how much voters emphasize federal spending on the state that will affect our future.

Adderall – Friend of foe? Mostly the latter The daily free press editorial board

Adderall is an amphetamine-based medication intended to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or A.D.H.D. But the high levels of mental focus that the medicine provides has led growing numbers of young adults – with college students, in particular, the drug is especially popular – to fake A.D.H.D. symptoms in order to obtain prescriptions. They do this for help studying for exams or finishing papers. They also use it as a diet pill, since it decreases or eliminates the appetite.


But they don’t realize that the drug can be highly addictive, and that side effects can include serious psychological risks. Saturday, The New York Times published the story of Richard Fee, the athletic and personable college class president and aspiring medical student from North Carolina who committed suicide (in 2009) after his Adderall prescription ran out. Fee had become addicted to the drug, unable to operate without it. His untimely death highlights what the Times deemed the widespread failings in the system through which five million Americans take medication for A.D.H.D. It has

become too easy for individuals “lacking concentration” to obtain a prescription for focus-enhancing drugs when, in actuality, they do not require them. The Times reported that doctors “tend to skip established diagnostic procedures, renew prescriptions reflexively and spend too little time with patients to accurately monitor side effects.” As a result, nearly 14 million monthly prescriptions for the condition were written for Americans ages 20 to 39 in 2011, which, according to the Times, is two and a half times the 5.6 million just four years before. The numbers should be a signal that the drug has become too easy to obtain.

But it should be noted, also, that if people seeking Adderall have no desire to visit the doctor and take the all-too-easy exam, they can purchase the pills from their friends. It’s estimated that between eight and 35 percent of college students take stimulant pills to enhance school performance, according to the Times. On college campuses where the demand to focus is ever-rampant, pill-swapping is nonchalant, prevalent, and consequently hard to control. It’s true that Adderall greatly helps in increasing levels of productivity. And it does what it’s intended to do: it can markedly improve the lives of children and others with the disor-

der it’s designed to treat. But for those without real A.D.H.D. — for those who suffer what everyone suffers: difficulty sitting in one place for too long, with one long paper, and one cup of coffee, for example — it is possible, as we see with the case of Fee, for an attachment to the drug to have catastrophic results. True, Fee is a tragic and hopefully singular case. Most students who experiment with Adderall are unlikely to over-abuse it, and will hopefully shake the habit by the time their demanding studies are over. But the fact that doctors are loosely prescribing a drug that can have dangerous side effects is worrisome. Fee claimed that his doctor

“wouldn’t prescribe [him] something that isn’t safe,” according to the Times. Doctors must realize that patients who “lack concentration” do not necessarily need medication — they might just have to turn off their iPhones and log off of BuzzFeed. It’s important that people become aware of the dangers of taking stimulant drugs so that they can learn to be careful when using them. Hopefully, they will avoid the dangers by steering clear of the drug entirely. We all have difficulty concentrating; to be naturally high-functioning has always required effort. Making drugs do our work for us is an unhealthy habit.

DAILY HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year you alternate between being emotionally detached and being oversensitive. If you have an artistic talent, it is likely to emerge.

A&E ‘The Walking Dead’ lives again 6

Tuesday February 12, 2013


304-293-5092 ext. 3 | DAA&

AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ brought viewers’ favorite zombie-slaying characters back to life Sunday evening.

laura ciarolla A&E writer

After more than two months of anticipation, “The Walking Dead” finally returned for its third season Sunday. Rick’s group seems to be held together by a thread as it is, and after Sunday’s episode, they may have lost another member. December’s mid-season finale ended with the Dixon brothers in a deadly standoff. As soon as the scene is revisited, though, we are immediately reassured when Merle and Daryl voice their unwillingness to participate in the Governor’s demands. Rick and the others return to save Daryl, and Merle escapes with the group. Rick wants nothing to do with Merle, though, and he gives an ultimatum that forces Daryl to leave Carol, Carl and Lil’ Ass-Kicker behind for his brother. The gang finds out from Merle that Andrea is alive and shacking up with the Governor, who seems to be taking the loss of his zom-

bie daughter extremely badly. He’s been ignoring the townspeople and even pushes Andrea away, causing her to take up his role as an inspirational leader for Woodbury. Glenn and Maggie are each dealing with the trauma from the Woodbury in a different way, which is putting their relationship on the rocks. Maggie wants to quickly move on from the awful memories, but Glenn is intent on revenge. A preview for next week’s episode shows Glenn attempting to team up with Michonne to kill the Governor. If there was any doubt in the group’s decision not to let in Tyreese and the newcomers, this last episode quelled it. While burying their friend, Allen and Ben begin talk of taking over the prison and size up Carol and Carl as easy targets. Obviously they don’t know Carl. Luckily, Tyreese and his sister are vehemently against the plan. One hopes they, at least, will be able to prove their trustworthiness to Rick and his group in the upcoming episodes. Probably the biggest development in Sunday’s episode was Rick’s increasing

insanity. A vision of Lori’s ghost sends him over the edge in front of Tyreese and the others to give them a really confusing first impression. No one seems to notice the extent of Rick’s insanity yet, though, and his screaming just seems like it’s directed at the newcomers. Michonne didn’t get much screen time in this episode; she spent most of it healing from her fight with the Governor. The preview of next week’s episode shows her up and moving, though, so she’ll return to us soon. “Talking Dead” comedian Chris Hardwick’s talk show about “The Walking Dead” was extended to one hour and continues to air after the show. The episodes feature guests from the series as well as celebrity fans. Sunday’s episode included Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn, and Kevin Smith. It also includes an exclusive preview of the next week’s episode. Watch new episodes of “The Walking Dead” Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC, or catch last week’s full episode on daa&

‘Carmen’ approaches theatrical perfection at Creative Arts Center by corey zinn a&e writer

West Virginia University’s School of Theatre and Dance performed its final show of the critically acclaimed opera “Carmen” Sunday. If you missed it, you missed out on the biggest and most fantastic opera WVU has performed in years. The show has been in production since October 2012 and uniquely integrated the School of Music with the School of Theatre and Dance, using many students from the Vocal Performance Department and outstanding members from the WVU Symphony Orchestra to present the romantic score. The WVU version was

translated into English and contained some other interesting adaptations as well. For example, the University’s version was set in post-World War II Spain, compared to the original, which was written well before the war. French composer Georges Bizet adapted this renowned opera from a short story about Don Jose, a man who becomes enchanted by a seductive gypsy named Carmen. “Carmen is the embodiment of this whole character of the piece – the gypsy life – to be free and to do as you please is the most important thing, and to hell with everything else,” said Jennifer Berkebile, who played the role of Carmen. Don Jose’s obsession turns to jealousy after he

finds Carmen is merely toying with him, just as she has done with many other men. Don Jose, however, will not allow her to leave him, and this struggle of love turns to tragedy. The audience was surprised by the cast change for the part of Don Jose. The original cast member was hospitalized, and the director decided to bring in international professional tenor, Evan Bowers, from outside of WVU. Last minute changes are normally no surprise to any fan of plays, but this was a truly unusual decision. Bower had no experience with the English version WVU performed and therefore was the only cast member to sing in French. His dialogue was in English, but for an opera which

mostly consisted of music and singing, this oddity became rather disorienting. On the bright side, the opposing languages between Don Jose and Carmen presented an interesting metaphor for the frustrating communication barriers between males and females in establishing relationships. Despite the French dialect, the audience was given a real treat with Bowers’ booming voice of passion and clarity. Although his expertise was obvious, there were not many principal cast members to fall short of superb. Berkebile not only sang with a beautiful and captivating voice, but her character was flawlessly portrayed as she seductively floated about the stage and

teased everyone’s heart. Sharon Lankford, who played Micaela, also had an impact on the crowd. Her voice soared sweetly as she tried to sing sense into Don Jose. Carmen’s friends, Frasquita and Mercedes, (played by Samantha DeStefano and Nicoletta Ciampa, respectively) rang high with power throughout the theater. The secondary suitor and bullfighter Escamillo was played by Greg Pearson, and he, too, executed flawlessly with a charming persona and a booming voice. The chorus was similarly impressive to hear resonating throughout the great Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre. It was surprising that no

microphones were used to add clarity to the performance. If you sat in the front, you would be awestruck by the power of the vocal students, but if you sat too far in the back, you may have had a difficult time comprehending the lyrics. In all, though, “Carmen” was one of the top most impressive shows the School of Dance and Theatre has produced in recent times, and it was beautiful to see all the Creative Arts students excel at such a high level after so much hard work and dedication. If you missed WVU’s rendition of “Carmen,” you must put another theater’s production of the opera in your bucket list. daa&

West Virginia senior center Ayana Dunning backs down an opponent during a game last season.

WVU senior center Ayana Dunning is performing well in her final season in Morgantown by amit batra sports writer

When senior center Ayana Dunning is performing at a high level, the West Virginia women’s basketball team is hard to beat. Against Kansas Saturday afternoon, Dunning was the force she’s been wanting to be all season long. The center contributed 17 points and nine rebounds in a near double-double. She is aver-

aging 10 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season. After being held scoreless in a few games this season, including the game against Texas Tech Tuesday in 13 minutes of action, Dunning responded in a big way against the Jayhawks. The senior answered by leading the Mountaineers in scoring for the fifth time this season. Her nine rebounds also paved the way for WVU, as it was the 10th time

this season Dunning led in the category. “Especially in the second half, our players were doing a good job getting the ball to her,” said head coach Mike Carey. “She was hitting some shots and finishing, and when YaYa plays well, we play well. I hate to put all the pressure on her, but I will.” In what was a critical game for West Virginia, Dunning and company were able to run away with

the game in the second half after a very competitive first half of action. The win against KU did help the Mountaineers’ chances in keeping up with their NCAA Tournament resume. Dunning’s play was a big part of the win. In the victory against KU, Dunning shot the ball extremely well with 7-for-12 shooting from the field, and she also contributed with a steal, an assist and earn-

ing a few trips to the free throw line. Her aggressive game really sparked WVU in a game in which the Mountaineers wanted some revenge after falling to the Jayhawks by one point earlier this season. The senior is the most difficult player for opponents to stop when she is playing hard in the

Zublasing, No. 1 West Virginia take down Murray State By Robert Kreis Sports writer

Senior shooter Petra Zublasing takes a shot last season.

File Photo

Senior Petra Zublasing shot down two school records at the West Virginia Rifle Range Saturday, leading the Mountaineers to a 4,700-4,628 victory against Murray State. “It’s awesome. You don’t really get performances like that,” said WVU head coach Jon Hammond. “She’s really pushed that barrier higher and higher, and she’s finally shot the best she ever has in a match.” In her final home match

as a Mountaineer, Zublasling went out with a bang. The Italian Olympian earned her first school record of the day in the small bore with a score of 594 (199 prone, 197 standing, 198 kneeling). Zublasling was almost perfect in the air rifle leg of the competition, but missed her only 10-point target on her final shot of the relay, earning a 599. Her combined score of 1193 earned her a second school record of the day. As the Mountaineers polish off the regular season, Hammond hopes the Mur-

ray State match will only propel Zublasling and the Mountaineers into the post season. “She’s shooting really well right now, and hopefully she can continue to do that for the rest of the semester,” Hammond said. “I think the match was good for everyone in the match, and getting back in the swing of things. “Hopefully we can buildoff it and continue to improve for the rest of the semester, but it was a good match to have.” Hammond is looking to build-off the Mountaineers’

performance against Murray State, not be content with earning their first 4,700 total of their spring semester. He is looking for his team to excel next week at the NCAA qualifiers, and on through the post season. “It’s definitely not our peak, but we’re going in the right direction,” Hammond said. “I think if we steadily improve in what we’ve been doing, we’re going to be in really good shape.” As the post season begins, West Virginia’s duel matches

WVU fans should jump on the Mazey Train Nick Arthur associate sports editor

Do you smell that? That would be the smell of leather gloves, freshly cut grass and new beginnings. Pitchers and catchers reported to sunny Florida Monday to kick off spring training 2013, and the West Virginia baseball team will strap on their cleats and tuck in their tops Friday afternoon for the season opener against North Florida in Jacksonville. It has become a common theme for the Mountaineers to kickoff their season in the Sunshine State, but this year they will sport a new look. For the first time in 18 seasons, Greg Van Zant won’t be delivering the lineup card to the umpire. New head coach Randy Mazey, a former head coach at East Carolina and assistant at TCU, will be doing the honors and won’t be pleading for a mercy rule. Mazey and his new staff were brought in this summer by West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck in an attempt to turn around a

baseball program that has had more than its fair share of struggles throughout the last decade. In about six months, the new coaching staff have had their hands in some mass changes taking place. The plans have been put forth to construct a brand new, multimillion-dollar ballpark, the team will sport new uniforms and a new logo, and they’ve created a completely revamped attitude about WVU baseball. The recruiting class brought in for this season was very impressive considering the lack of time allotted to Mazey and his staff to hit the recruiting trail. Many proven junior college players and youth with a lot of potential combined with a solid returning core from a season ago can make this arguably one of the more talented rosters in Morgantown in quite some time. Now, life in the Big 12 Conference as a baseball program is extremely difficult. Much more difficult than it was in the Big East Conference; that’s for sure. I don’t expect Mazey’s Mountaineers to simply flip

the switch and make a run at a Big 12 title. I do, however, expect a new and improved style of baseball game in and game out from the Mountaineers. Mazey has proven he has the ability to coach at a high level everywhere he’s been, and his assistant coaches have done the same. His players have a different mentality, too. Every year they’ll tell you that this year will be different, and they are confident. This year, though, you can tell they genuinely mean it. The bottom line is West Virginia won’t immediately soar to the top of the Big 12 and compete for a conference championship – that will come with time. They will, however, show immediate improvement across the board and will bring exciting and intriguing baseball to Morgantown in 2013. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be sure to head to a few games to take in the enhanced product. Give it a try yourself. Jump on the “Mazey Train.”

IOC set to cut 1 sport from Classifieds program of 2020 Games SPECIAL NOTICES

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — IOC leaders are meeting this week to decide which sport to drop from the Olympic program and how to deal with the fallout from the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. At a two-day IOC executive board meeting opening Tuesday, the IOC will also review preparations for the Winter Olympics in Sochi – less than a year away – and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, as well as select a short list of finalists for the 2018 Youth Olympics. Modern pentathlon, a tradition-steeped contest invented by the founder of the modern Olympics, is expected to face close scrutiny when the board considers which of the current 26 summer Olympic sports to remove from the program of the 2020 Games. Taking out one sport will make way for a new sport to be added to the program later this year. The executive board will review a report from the IOC program commission assessing each of the sports contested at last summer’s London Olympics. The report analyzes more than three dozen criteria, including television ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global participation and popularity. With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final decision by the 15-member executive board will likely

be influenced by political, emotional and sentimental factors. Among the sports considered the most vulnerable is modern pentathlon, which was created for the Olympics by French baron Pierre de Coubertin. It has been on the program since the 1912 Stockholm Games, where George S. Patton – the future U.S. Army general – finished fifth. Modern pentathlon combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting – the five skills required of a 19th century cavalry officer. The sport’s governing body, the UIPM, has been lobbying hard to protect its Olympic status. UIPM President Klaus Schormann said his sport has broadened its appeal with a one-day format while also upholding the traditions of the past and the legacy of De Coubertin. “The Olympic movement always needs history,” he told The Associated Press. “You cannot just say we look only at the future. You can have a future when you are stable on the basic part of history. We are continuing to develop, to renovate, to be innovative and creative. We are very proud of what we achieved so far and want to deliver this as well for the next generations in 2020.” Taekwondo, the Korean martial art that has been in the Olympics since 2000, has also been mentioned as

being among the sports in potential danger. The sport introduced a new scoring system in London to eliminate judging controversies and the gold medals, previously dominated by South Koreans, were spread among eight different nations. The future of wrestling, badminton and table tennis have also been the subject of speculation. The last sports removed from the Olympics were baseball and softball, voted out by the IOC in 2005 and off the program since the 2008 Beijing Games. Joining the program at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro will be golf and rugby. Baseball and softball have combined forces to seek inclusion in 2020, competing against karate, squash, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu. Whichever sport is dropped Tuesday will join those seven vying for the single opening in 2020. The IOC executive board will meet in May in St. Petersburg, Russia, to decide which sport or sports to propose for 2020 inclusion. The final vote will be made at the IOC general assembly in September in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This week, the IOC will also discuss the crisis in cycling following the doping revelations that led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles

and banned for life from elite sports. Armstrong was also stripped by the IOC of his bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Games, though the medal has not yet been returned. The international cycling federation, the UCI, has been in open conflict with the World Anti-Doping Agency over the terms of any “truth and reconciliation” process offering amnesties to those who come forward with information. UCI President Pat McQuaid has written all IOC members seeking their support. He also is reportedly seeking help to fund the process. The IOC appears unlikely to get directly involved, seeking instead to encourage the UCI and WADA to work together. “The IOC could maybe play a role as a kind of facilitator,” IOC vice president Thomas Bach told the AP. On another matter, the IOC will reduce the field of candidates for the 2018 Summer Youth Games. The five bidders are Buenos Aires; Glasgow, Scotland; Guadalajara, Mexico; Medellin, Colombia; and Rotterdam, Netherlands. At least two are expected to make the list of finalists, with the winner to be announced in June. The first Youth Olympics were held in 2010 in Singapore, with the 2014 edition taking place in Nanjing, China.

Eagles, QB Vick agree to restructured deal PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Quarterback Michael Vick, who was slated to earn $16 million next season, has agreed to a restructured deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick, who was injured and inconsistent last season, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles, now has a three-year contract, and will compete with Foles over the next nine months to see who runs new coach Chip Kelly’s offense this season. Vick, who returned to start the season finale vs. the New York Giants in December because Foles was injured, finished the season with 2,362 yards passing, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Eagles finished 4-12 and in last place in the NFC East. Andy Reid was fired as coach the day after the season ended, and Kelly was hired last month. Vick, who will be 33 when next season begins, is still elusive when healthy, and seems equipped to run Kelly’s aggressive, up-tempo offense that he is bringing to the Eagles from Oregon. “He wanted to be here,” Kelly said Monday in his first meeting with the media following his opening press conference on Jan. 17. “I had never met him before. The one thing that attracted me to him, is Michael is a competitor. Nick is, too. You want guys who want to compete.” Vick was signed by Philadelphia in 2009, and became the starter in 2010. He led the Eagles that season to an NFC East title, and a memorable 38-31 December win over the Giants in which he rallied the team from a 21-point deficit. There are questions, of course, about his durability and his age, as he now seems far removed from that resurgent 2010 season. He finished that year with 3,018 yards passing, 676 yards rushing and 30 total touchdowns. “He’s younger than (Dallas quarterback) Tony Romo, and he’s right about the same age as (Giants quarterback) Eli Manning,” Kelly said. “The only reason I say that is because I told Michael that this morning, and he didn’t know.” Vick only played in 10 games last season, and in the finale vs. New York, he had a quarterback rating of just 68.4 en route to a 42-7 loss. “I looked at the films, and studied the tape. When you look at Michael, it’s his

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, center, drops back to pass as quarterbacks Trent Edwards, left, and Nick Foles look on during NFL football practices. toughness. That cannot be overrated at all,” Kelly said. “We looked at his skillset. He still has that skillset. He can still throw the football. “He’s got an unbelievable release, and it’s our job as coaches to make sure he can get the ball out quickly.” All told, Vick has started

35 games for Philadelphia over the last three seasons. Foles has started six. The Eagles scored just 280 points last season as they endured an eight- and a three-game losing streak. Only Arizona (250) scored fewer in the NFC. When asked which quar-

terback would work with the first-team offense in training camp, Kelly smiled and quickly showed he’s going to be able to handle the Philadelphia media just fine. “We’ll go alphabetical,” he said with a grin. “First name? Last name? We’ll flip a coin.”

West Virginia showing New coaches help sway improvement on offense new recruits to WVU BY GREG MADIA multimedia editor

by michael carvelli sports editor

When the West Virginia men’s basketball team travels to Baylor this week, it will be the Mountaineers’ chance to win their fourthstraight conference game for the first time since January 2011. The Mountaineers have won three games in a row, winning road games against Texas Tech and TCU and beating Texas at home. In those three games, WVU shot 52 percent, and made 66 of its 128 attempts from the field. In its first 20 games, West Virginia shot just 39 percent. “We finally made shots,” said West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins on the Big 12 teleconference Monday. “Two of the last three, we shot over 50 percent. I think, for us, when we make shots, we give ourselves a chance.” The recent winning streak is giving Huggins’ Mountaineer team, which consists of 11 players who are freshmen and sophomores, some much-needed confidence after suffering close losses early throughout the Big 12 schedule. West Virginia struggled to win games out of the gate against conference opponents and struggled at times in out of conference play with an extremely difficult group of opponents. “We never really got over the hump and finished a game,” Huggins said. “Hopefully, we have enough confidence now. We’re still so young in the backcourt, particularly playing two freshmen and three sophomores. We’ve got a lot of youth there, and I think they’re growing up. “I’m sure that (playing a difficult schedule) had something to do with (their

But sometimes I just wonder how much you get out of winning by 40, other than getting a bunch of people playing time that ordinarily don’t get it.” Baylor hopes to continue turnaround against WVU After starting out strong in Big 12 Conference play, winning five of its first six games, Baylor has struggled throughout the last couple of weeks. The Bears lost three games in a row to Oklahoma, Iowa State and Oklahoma State before getting back on track in a 75-48 victory against Texas Tech Saturday. Head coach Scott Drew is hoping his team can continue to gain more momentum when West Virginia travels to Waco, Texas, Wednesday. But he knows the Mountaineers will offer a tough challenge for his team. “All year long, they’ve been very good defensively and very good on the

boards,” Drew said. “Their offense has picked it up. They’ve got a couple guys now making some more shots and playing a little more than they did earlier in the year. When you add that to good defense and good rebounding, that’s what gets you wins.” Baylor is currently sixth in the Big 12 standings and is a game ahead of West Virginia. It’s one of the many close races in the Big 12 this season. No team outside of the league’s top seven is behind more than three games to Kansas State, which is 8-2 in conference play. “Every coach is just trying to make sure they their team is one of the teams in the hunt and trying to win the next game,” Drew said. “We’re just trying to play our best basketball down the stretch and put ourselves in position to hopefully be there in the end.”

After every college football season, no matter the school, changes in coaching staff are imminent. Following WVU’s 7-6 season, changes were made, and head coach Dana Holgorsen brought three new coaches – Lonnie Galloway, Tony Gibson and Brian Mitchell – into Morgantown. These coaches, like any other assistants across the country, were hired for two reasons: first, to improve on field play and second, to bring in better talent in recruiting. Hired after the Pinstripe Bowl, Galloway, Gibson and Mitchell were forced to jump in on recruiting the 2013 class. The three had their work cut out for them until signing day, which fell last Tuesday. Lonnie Galloway, who was at WVU from 2008-10, is familiar with what brand West Virginia brings to the table. Galloway is the guy who originally recruited Tavon Austin and Bruce Irvin, among others, to Morgantown. He understands what West Virginia can do for a young athlete, so he shared that with the new wide receiver prospects he was recruiting. “The biggest thing was getting familiar with me, and because I had been at West Virginia, they understood what I was talking about because I had coached Tavon (Austin) and Stedman (Bailey),” Galloway said. Galloway, having taken that hiatus at Wake Forest, admits the move from recruiting for Wake Forest to

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen looks on during a game earlier in the season. recruiting for West Virginia was not hard. “Because none of the guys that I was recruiting at Wake Forest were thinking about coming here, it really wasn’t,” Galloway said. “It would have been different (if ) I would have been saying to guys like Mario (Alford) and Shelton (Gibson) come to Wake Forest, and as soon as I got the WVU job, come to West Virginia.” As for Tony Gibson, he made the transition with ease. Gibson, a native West Virginian and having coached under Rich Rodriguez made it seem like he never left. He even managed to flip Mario Alford and Brandon Golson from being Arizona commits to WVU signees. Gibson, just like Galloway, says it wasn’t hard coming back. “An opportunity to come back home to coach in my home state and be a part of West Virginia football again was exciting,” Gibson said. “Just to be able to go out and sell something that you

believe and you’re tied to is the easy thing.” New cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell, who is back working with Coach Holgorsen for the first time since being together at Texas Tech, is already finding his recruiting strength in the New Jersey area. Mitchell credits the commits to making his transition to Morgantown easier. “I tell you what, they made my life easier. Going to see Daryl Worley, Al-Rahseed (Benton) and Marcell (Lazard), those are some of the best kids, I’ve ever recruited,” Mitchell said. “They made my life easier. I didn’t have to go sell the program, all I did was go in there and create a relationship with those kids.” Galloway, Gibson and Mitchell helped Holgorsen piece together a 2013 recruiting class that is rated No. 24 nationally and No. 3 in the Big 12 by


Adams, Williams perform well at SPIRE BY Kevin Hooker sports writer

Senior Heather Adams broke her own record in the weight throw with a mark of 18.18 meters at the SPIRE Indoor Track and Field Invitational this past weekend in Ohio. Adams topped her personal-best throw of 18.04 meters, which she recorded two weeks ago at the Akron Invitational. She now owns the program’s top three spots in the-top 5 for weight throw. “Heather put together the best series of her career,” said head coach Sean Cleary in a recent press release. “She is peaking well.” In her mile debut, freshman Kelly Williams recorded a time of 4:38.47, which was good enough for second place. Williams’ time ranks third on the top-5 in WVU history.

“I was excited to try out the mile,” Williams said. “I’m proud of what I did today.” Williams said Cleary has been telling her she’ll be a miler by the end of this season. “Kelly continues to impress,” Cleary said. “To break into our top-5 list in the mile is no easy feat.” In back-to-back weeks, junior Chene Townsend posted personal-best times in the 60-meter hurdles. This week, Townsend ran with a time of 7.66 seconds, breaking her previous best of 7.72 seconds. She finished in 14th place. “Chene knocked another few hundredths off her lifetime best in the 60-meter dash,” Cleary said. “She is rounding into shape at the right time.” Senior Sarah-Anne Brault, who competed for the first time this season, took 12th

place in the 3,000-meter run with a time of 9:34.62. Junior Sarah Martinelli placed 16th with a time of 9:40.32. “The 3,000 meter was a bright spot for us today,” Cleary said. “This marked an improvement of six seconds from (Brault’s) best ever in the 3,000 meters. Martinelli also had a very big run, while taking 13 seconds off her (personal best time).” Despite their success in the 3,000 meter run, Clearly and the Mountaineers know they can improve. “I know (Brault and Martinelli) have more improvement in them,” he said. The Mountaineers return to action Friday, as half the team will travel to Akron, Ohio, for the Zips Invitational, while the other half will stay in Morgantown for the Gold-Blue Open at the WVU Shell Building.

Earlier in the year, Dunning struggled with foul trouble and really letting the game come to her, but against Kansas, she played a much bigger role and made a statement to the rest of the conference. Dunning looks to do much of the same when West Virginia plays host to No. 22 Oklahoma State and travels to No. 25 Iowa State this week. In what could have been just a rhythm game or the start of something much more, the Mountaineers will be a tough out if Dunning is performing as she did against Kansas.


Continued from page 7 end. Instead of facing one opponent in the rifle range, the Mounaineers will be facing multiple teams, starting at NCAA qualifiers. “Essentially we’re shooting against everyone this weekend,” Hammond said. “Then we’ll go to confer-

The likelihood of one of those teams having a great day (is) higher.” Despite the change in match type, Hammond does not expect any change in mentality from his shooters.

Something he’s coached all season. “We’re trying to control the internal factors, and the external things we don’t have control over,” Hammond said. “Whether it is or it isn’t, our focus is making sure it’s like any other match. “Focus on your performance, and do the best that you can.”
