Program advocates for student victims By sam bosserman staff writer @dailyathenaeum

Helen was raped in her home around 5 a.m. The perpetrator, an acquaintance of her husband’s, broke in through a broken basement door. At the time of the attack, Helen was recovering from a foot surgery, leaving her unable to flee. When Helen recalls her memories of the night, she remembers the man, who was allegedly on drugs,

telling her of how he had longed for her. “(He) just started saying ‘it’s time, it’s time’ over and over again as he tried to control me,” she said. When Helen reported her assault to the police, she was faced with the standard assortment of victim-blaming questions such as “Why didn’t you run?”, “Why didn’t you fight back?” and “Why didn’t you use the word no?” She remembers how the police were far from welltrained in handling victims

of sexual assault and took several actions that can be described as misguided at best. “When the police called me to come down to the station, they put me alone in a small interrogation room,” she said. “(At that time) I would just lay in bed for hours, shaking and crying from the PTSD.” Helen’s case was referred to prosecutors by the police after an investigation in which the perpetrator confessed to detectives he had indeed entered her home

without her permission. Despite the incriminating comments made to the police, Helen’s case never went to trial. Unfortunately, someone had tainted the witnesses by calling and telling them she had said “sorry” to her attacker. Helen said her words had been twisted out of context, and she only said “sorry” during the attack as a way to calm the man down and protect her own life. After law enforcement and prosecutors backed away from the case, Helen

was left with little help to seek justice for the crime committed against her. Since the attack, Helen started college at West Virginia University and has tapped into the resources provided at the school. One resource that has been exceptionally helpful for her is the civil law clinic at the WVU College of Law. Aside from being a vast repository of information and an advocate for students, the law clinic helped Helen with matters requiring specific legal expertise.

Of WVU students say it takes a long time to find a recycling bin on campus




Of WVU students say they place a lot of value on the state of the environment and feel that ‘going green’ truly makes a difference



Tyler Lallone, a kindergartner from Wellsburg, W.Va., throws out the first pitch of the WVU baseball game against Kansas State Saturday.




A group of West Virginia University students in the Communication Studies 201 course, Communication Theory and Research, spent their semester learning about research practices and putting their newfound knowledge to the test. COMM 201 is a course focused on communication theory and research practices that are required for all potential communication studies majors. Each semester the students in this class work to study an aspect of life at WVU, analyze data and perform the research tasks. This semester, Shannon Carton, a communication studies doctoral student and course instructor, said her students were exceptionally passionate and eager to complete a highly successful research project. The class even gained approval from the Institutional Review Board to allow them to release their findings to media outlets and possibly have their work published in scholarly journals. “Every semester the students do a research project, and they decide what topic they want to cover,” Carton said. “This semester they were thinking ahead and realized they would be finishing the project around Earth Day, so they decided on a green initiatives topic.” The students created a four-page survey consisting of questions about students’ perceptions of environmentalism and WVU’s environmental efforts. Each student in the class then dis-

tributed the survey to at least five people on campus to gauge their knowledge, conscientiousness and desires to improve WVU’s environmental efforts. “We got back about 165 usable surveys, which is great and gave us some good statistical power,” Carton said. “Overall, students want WVU to be more green. We also found that students who recycle more themselves perceive WVU to be more environmentally conscious than those that do not recycle themselves.” One shocking discovery was WVU does not recycle No. 6 plastic, which is used to make red Solo cups or glass products. “WVU is a huge party school. A lot of people are drinking out of these cups, but they are made from number six plastic, so all of those plastic cups are going in the garbage,” Carton said. Some students in the class agreed with Carton’s notion that WVU should be expanding their recycling efforts, specifically to include Type 6 plastic and glass. Julia Butler, a sophomore communication studies student and member of the COMM 201 course, said she found this fact disheartening. “The fact that we don’t recycle the Solo cup plastic and glass is upsetting, because we use so much of those things here at WVU,” Butler said. “I was really shocked at how much the University doesn’t do. Seeing all the recycling signs and bins you would think we were doing a great job, but we aren’t.” For the class, it was promising to learn students at WVU are passion-

ate about recycling and protecting the environment; however, the general discovery students don’t know what to recycle or even how to recycle was something they said needs to be improved. “We found out through our study that people really don’t know much about going green, and WVU is really not equipped to do so,” Butler said. “People want to, but they aren’t educated about it and are not actually motivated to do so. WVU is putting bins out and saying we are going green but not much has really happened to make a change yet.” The research found WVU’s efforts to educate students about recycling are helping. They are making students more conscientious and

Ty Lallone, a 5-year-old kindergartner from Wellsburg, W.Va., had an opportunity even adults dream of at Saturday’s West Virginia University baseball game against Kansas State. Ty, who suffers from a congenital heart defect, threw the ceremonial first pitch and was honored by the team on the field prior to the game. At 3 months old, Ty’s parents, Jonathan and Courtney, took him to his regular three-month checkup. After the doctor listened to Ty’s heart, he told the Lallones he heard a tick and wanted a cardiologist to look into it further. The tests revealed Ty had a bicuspid aortic valve in his heart. “It was by the grace of God they caught it, because that valve doesn’t make a sound,” Jonathan said. “This is what children die suddenly from because they never knew they had it.” Since the discovery, Ty has had cardiologist appointments every six months and was recently referred to a surgeon at the Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh. Ty will soon undergo a surgery called the Ross procedure, or pulmonary autograft, in which the defective pulmonary valve will be cut out and replaced with a cadaver valve. Ty was recruited by Valerie Grimes, the division director for the American Heart Association, to be honored at the game. Grimes worked with Mara Regling, a WVU senior public relations student, to bring Ty and his family to the game. As her capstone project, Regling was in charge of PR and communications for the event. She said she felt it was a great opportunity to honor a devoted Mountaineer fan while drawing attention to childhood heart diseases. “Ty is just loving every minute of this,” she said. “It’s so great to see him so happy and really enjoying this experience.” Jonathan said when Ty found out he would be throwing the first pitch, he immediately ran and put on his baseball glove and said, “This is going to be the greatest day of my life.” Ty even told his teacher he would be playing baseball for the Mountaineers when he was old enough to go to college. Courtney said her entire family was thrilled Ty was receiving this opportunity and being recognized by the team. “There are no words to explain what this honor means to us; it’s amazing,” she said. “He’s got the

Walk puts men ‘in her shoes,’ raises awareness by alexis randolph staff writer @dailyathenaeum

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, a sexual assault and rape awareness event focusing on the male role in society, was held Saturday. The event is held annually by the Rape and Domestic Violence Information Center of Morgantown. For a $10 registration fee, participants were given a Tshirt and a pair of high heels. The predominantly male procession walked from the Mountainlair Green down to Hazel Ruby McQuain Riverfront Park for activism, food and entertainment. Members of the community, families and West Virginia University students joined the walk to help raise awareness. “It’s great. We’ve had people registering since 12:30 p.m., even though registration started at 1 p.m.,” said Jonnie Kifer, a prevention education specialist for the RDVIC. “We have so many people who didn’t sign up online that we are seeing here today, so that is exciting.” The goal of the event is to bring awareness to a growing problem in the Morgantown community and what can be done to fight it. “We want people to be aware that sexual assault does happen in this community, and they can stand up and help stop it,” she said. “They can help be supportive to people they know who have been assaulted and make safer environments.”

Continued from page 1 Behre said the law clinic is just one of many avenues a survivor can take in finding help after an attack, with law enforcement, medical professionals and University staff. According to Behre, the law clinic may be a good place to start for some students, because the clinic adheres to attorney-client confidentiality. This means the law stu-

The RDVIC does not focus solely on teaching women how to protect themselves but also works to stop all forms of abuse. Kifer said they want to eliminate the stigma around talking about abuse. “We don’t want people to think we are trying to teach people not to rape,” Kifer said. “We really want people to open up and not stigmatize.” There has been a great response from the community toward the walk, she said. This marks the sixth year for the walk, which was started by board members and former employees of the RDVIC. For many years, the awareness event was the only walk of its kind in West Virginia but is now held in several communities across the state. Kifer said the connection to WVU is valuable to the cause, and she hopes the walk has a positive influence on the young men at the University. “We are really hoping that being here at the Mountainlair lets the younger guys know they cannot be bystanders,” she said. “They don’t have to think it is cool to sexually assault someone.” Lamar Taylor, a junior sport management student, participated with his Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity brothers. “We were looking for a community service event to be a front leader for and really get our name out there,” Taylor said. “We have been

students should be taught specifics about what they can and cannot recycle and how they can recycle. “The more students know about recycling, the more passionate they will be and maybe we can actually make some sort of change both at the University and in Morgantown,” she said. “Environmentalism is contagious – it’s a snow-

ball movement.” To learn more about what can be recylcled and where to recycle hazardous materials – such as batteries, electronics and household items – iPhone users can dowload iRecycle, which uses the user’s location to find the nearest recyling centers.

dents and professors working at the clinic do not have to report the crime to the school, as Resident Assistants in the residence halls and WVU professors would be required to. Behre said she believes the exemption from the mandatory reports allows some students to feel more comfortable when coming forward to seek help. Behre said the nonprofit Rape and Domestic Violence Information Center also has counselors who are exempt from manda-

tory reporting regulations, who are able provide individuals with important information. Informational centers like these are important, as there are many things about sexual assault laws and regulations a regular student would not know about. “Under West Virginia law, if you get a rape kit done, you don’t need to necessarily decide whether to press criminal charges (at the time),” Behre said. “They can keep them for up

As the walk proceeded down High Street, it gained a lot of attention from the bystanders. “I believe events such as Walk a Mile in Her Shoes does a good job (of ) raising awareness for issues that are of great importance for specifically women in the Morgantown area,” said Brendan Muckian-Bates, a graduate teaching assistant in the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at WVU. “It is important for men to understand the perspective of women and to educate

themselves.” He said the physical representation of a metaphor like walking a mile in someone else’s shoes is a great way to make the issues real for men. “I think walking mile in someone else’s shoes is a very real situation where you have to put yourself into the perspective of the other person,” MuckianBates said. “Once you physically walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, you can begin to see their lived experiences.”

He said believes the community needs more events like this to help spread the word about sexual assault and rape culture. The organization accepted donations at the end of the walk, and with the help of local business, provided refreshments for the participants with prizes awarded in several categories.

Under federal law right now, victims of sexual assault who report it to the University may have the right to certain interim provisions.” Behre said provisions can range from having a survivor’s or a perpetrator’s class schedule and housing changed to having someone walk with a survivor around campus in order for them to feel safe until conduct board hearings have finished.

I think actually having a fraternity as a part of something like this is a huge representation of the movement we are trying to make in Greek life.”

third-year student attorneys are able to represent student survivors at conduct board hearings. This means students who come to the clinic are no longer being asked to try their own cases, but rather have people with legal training help them get justice. Sarah Mills, one such law student working at the clinic, said groups like RDVIC are trying to not only help those who have been victimized, but are also attempting to change the culture that contributes to sexual assault. “The RDVIC has been trying to push the thinking away from ‘no means no’ to ‘yes means yes,’” Mills said. “It shouldn’t be assumed just because you’re

It needs to be only if you in some way give consent.” The push for a cultural change can also be seen in initiatives such as the Green Dot campaign, which promotes bystander intervention. In relation to whether or not a survivor should be encouraged to come to the clinic to seek legal help, Stephanie Moore, a law student, said it comes down to each individual case and what’s right for the person’s recovery. *The last name has been omitted to protect the victim’s identity.

Students and community members enjoyed an afternoon of fun with the West Virginia University men’s basketball team at the Stuff the Bus supply drive Saturday. The event was hosted by the Early Learning Facility Enhancement Fund, a capstone project for a group of public relations students. The ELF Enhancement Fund teamed up with the Morgantown Early Learning Facility, a local parentowned, nonprofit educational program for children between the ages of 2-12, to raise money and get school supplies for the program. “I knew I always wanted to do something with Morgantown Early Learning Facility because it’s such a special place,” said Rita Colistra, an assistant professor of journalism at WVU. “When you walk in you can just feel the happiness. The kids are happy, and the teachers want to be there. It’s just a wonderful positive place.” Stuff the Bus is a com-

munitywide effort to collect school supplies for the two Morgantown ELF locations, which combine to serve about 150 children. “The PR capstone is a very labor-intensive course. I’m very proud of the work they’ve done,” Colistra said. “They’re getting real-world experience while helping contribute to a nonprofit, parent-owned daycare facility.” The basketball players assisted with collecting the supplies, posed for fan photos and signed autographs. The first 50 people in attendance who donated three or more items were given an autographed poster of the team. “It’s awesome just to be here and see kids interacting with the basketball team,” said Julia Marrin, public relations direct for the ELF Enhancement Fund. “Just seeing smiles on their faces, whether we collect supplies or not, is an awesome feeling.” The organizers of The ELF Enhancement Fund are hoping to obtain 10 percent of the yearly amount of school supplies needed at the Morgantown ELF lo-

cations, including writing utensils, art supplies, paper and sanitary products. “I didn’t know of ELF before my capstone course,” Marrin said. “After going to the facility and meeting the kids, this has become important to me. We’ve been working on this campaign all semester, so it’s great to see a good turnout.” The Stuff the Bus campaign has reached its conclusion, but the ELF Enhancement Fund will still accept donation of school supplies. Lane Horter, the fund’s public relations director, said being involved with the campaign has been a rewarding experience, because WVU and Morgantown have played an impactful role in his life. “I want to give back what Morgantown has given to me and pay it forward,” Horter said.

An open invitation to join our team Carlee lammers managing editor @Carleelammers

The best decision I’ve ever made was asking a stranger in downtown Morgantown to give me directions to The Daily Athenaeum. I had a crumpled resume in my hand, was lost (oh my gosh, so lost) and probably looked like I was about to cry. But I was determined to find this place. I wanted to work there. By the time I got there, the doors were locked up for the night, and no one was there. After a few deep

breaths, I made the walk back to my residence hall. I ended up coming back the next day (with a less wrinkled resume) and applied. And I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that I did. As a print journalism student, The DA has given me a true glimpse of what the newspaper industry is like. I’ve been able to gain real-world experience while still working toward my degree. I’ve served in a couple of different roles at The DA, and I get to return as Managing Editor for the 2014-15 school year. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful this ride has been thus far.

The DA has given me so much, I can’t even put it to words. But here’s the thing. The newspaper industry is changing. WVU is changing. And so is The DA. Nothing breaks my heart more than hearing people complain about us not doing our jobs, seeing newsstands filled with yesterday’s papers or – even worse – students not knowing about their campus newspaper. The DA is the voice for students, faculty and other members of the WVU community. How incredible is it that we have the power to share our stories, voice our concerns and get the word out every single day?

The answer is pretty darn incredible. But we can’t do it without a little help. So, this is your open invitation to join our team and help us achieve our goals. This is your chance to tell us what you think The DA should be doing more and how we can better serve our campus community. A popular myth is you have to be a journalism student to work at The DA. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Biology students, engineering students, law students, history students, music students, education students, animal and nutritional science stu-

dentss, sport management students, and so many more can benefit from working at The DA. The Editor-in-Chief is a forensic and investigative sciences student. This is your chance to cover campus issues or WVU sports or voice your opinion on something near and dear to your heart. This is chance to put your editing skills to the test, and this your chance to whip out your camera and put those photography skills to use. West Virginia University is a place filled with students from all over the world with all different backgrounds, coming from all different walks of

life. So, why shouldn’t The DA be the same? I encourage anyone interested to at least pick up an application and consider applying. That decision changed my life for the better. You can download an application by visiting http:/ site/employment.html. If you have any questions stop in and talk to us (just don’t come in when the doors are locked like I tried to). Or feel free to email me personally. We are excited for the upcoming school year and cannot wait for what’s to come.


Why does India need Narendra Modi? UWire The world watches as 800 million eligible voters take to the polls in India, making the 2014 Lok Sabha elections the single biggest electoral exercise in history. Few people predicted India would remain a democracy post-independence because of its heterogeneous society. It is a country where people practice every major religion in the world and speak more than a hundred different languages. From an economic standpoint, the divide between rich and poor is so stark that there is a slum in the vicinity of a billion-dollar residential building in Mumbai. Even though India faces various socio-economic tensions, the strength of its institutions and division of power between the Judiciary, Legislature and Executive, have together ensured a robust democracy. Many people argue that India has chosen to pursue democracy at the expense of economic growth. Economic growth is so crucial to a country like India because it helps lift millions of people out of poverty each year. People make frequent comparisons with China, claiming that the northern neighbor has succeeded in achieving higher growth rates under a one-party regime. Democracy does bring elements of policy paralysis, because the processes of building consensus and short-term, populist thinking on the part of the government can stifle economic development. But, when questioned, most Indians value their individual

liberties, freedom and the ability to voice their opinions via representative democracy. They would be happy to sacrifice some degree of economic progress for the privilege of democracy. So then why does this election matter? This is a historic election for mainly one reason. India currently enjoys a demographic dividend: around two-thirds of its population is under the age of 35. This means that it has a labor force of over 500 million people, analogous to China in the early 1980s— when their economy really took off. From a policymaker’s standpoint, this labor force has to be put to productive work, preferably in the organized sector. The demand for labor needs to be created through advancement of business, especially small and medium enterprises that tend to have a higher employment elasticity of growth. Economic growth will also help raise government revenues, which could sustainably fund many of the expansive social welfare schemes (Right to Education, Food Security, etc.) that the Parliament has promised. Narendra Modi fits the bill on precisely that front. As Chief Minister of the successful state of Gujarat, he has a proven track record of fostering an environment for facilitating investment and creating jobs. His state has seen tremendous growth in all three major sectors (services, manufacturing and agriculture), thereby raising the revenues necessary to fund infrastructure, skill development and educational programs. His eco-

nomic success is well documented by the media, but they often ignore his work on judicial, administrative and governance reforms, which constitute a vital part of his development model. From Goldman Sachs to Citibank, every major investment house is upgrading their forecast for the Indian economy, based on the expectation of his electoral victory. Other than creating the infrastructure necessary for attracting investment, Modi would bring some degree of policy stability to the government. Under the current government, there have been many instances of policy inconsistency like the cases of Vodafone retrospective taxation, Jet Etihad deal and Ordinance on convicted MPs, amongst others. For example, Rahul Gandhi proposed that an ordinance signed by the PM and Cabi-



net should be “torn up and thrown away,” disrespecting their authority. The Prime Minister and the Gandhi family have created a dual power center. The office of Prime Minister, constitutionally endowed to have the power to say “the buck stops here,” has been frequently disrespected by the Gandhi household, which has unofficially superseded it. Modi recognizes the importance of creating a strong team, soliciting opinions and recommendations, but ultimately making the final decision. He understands the dynamics of authority and accountability for the decisions that he makes. India needs stability in governance and decisive leadership. Narendra Modi does, however, continue to face allegations of poorly responding to anti-Mus-

lim riots that took place in his state of Gujarat, back in March 2002. He had become Chief Minister of the state only months before in October 2001. His political opposition makes two principle claims: first, that he was silent during the riots, and second, that he did not use his state machinery appropriately to end rioting. These inflammatory political accusations are particularly unfortunate, because Modi’s statement to the people of Gujarat at the time of the riots is widely available on YouTube. He is clearly seen denouncing any violent actions and makes an earnest plea to maintain peace. In terms of acting fast, Modi realized that his state machinery was inadequately equipped to tackle the violence, and therefore requested aid from the Congress-ruled neigh-

boring state of Madhya Pradesh, who refused him any help. Simultaneously, he requested help from the national army, which intervened by the second day of the riots and prevented it from spreading any further. These facts are all well documented, and there is clear evidence of Modi’s efforts to contain the riots. Furthermore, the Supreme Court of India ordered Special Investigative Teams (SITs) to investigate Modi’s role in the riots, and they have not found a shred of evidence against him. Many critics further question this ruling, claiming that the Supreme Court could have been influenced by the central government in this decision. They fail to recognize that the investigations happened between 2010 and 2012, at which point the Congress Party was in power. Since several Congress politicians were out to indict Modi of any potential wrongdoings, they could have only influenced the case against him. The Congress Party has tried its best to continue alleging that Modi is anti-Muslim (and against all other communities) for the last 12 years. They have realized that they cannot challenge him on his developmental agenda and track record of good governance. Thus, they have continued to paint him as this anti-Muslim figure, so as to polarize the Muslim vote (which is 13 percent of the population) against Modi. If current opinion polls are anything to go by, though, it seems as though the Congress Party is failing in its attempt to shift the election agenda from development to secularism.

Day of Design features students by jake jarvis A&E writer @dailyathenaeum

West Virginia University students in the Division of Design & Merchandising came together for an endof-the-year celebration and exhibition of their work Friday. Students from across all design disciplines participated in the Day of Design. The Division of Design & Merchandising currently offers majors in fashion design and merchandising, interior design and design studies. The courses these students take prepare them not only to be innovative artists, but communicators

and leaders for many professional fields. This year, the celebration was split into two sections. In the Agricultural Sciences Annex, there were group projects with members representing each of the three majors. In the lower level of Percival Hall, students in the FDM 260 Visual Merchandising course showcased their work. Some participants at the Day of Design said after they graduate they hope to be architects while others long to be creative directors of a fashion line. Some were happy going wherever life takes them. A common theme among

all of the projects, though, was talent. Walking in the Annex, visitors were treated to largerthan-life art installations centered around refurbishment. One of the best executed designs of the groups was called “Fobs,” standing for “found objects.” From this group, Daniel Jencks created two one-ofa-kind furniture pieces out of refurbished pallets, commonly used for transporting and storing goods in major department stores. “I have a brand called Palletable Designs, and I spent last summer selling furniture that I made out of pallets,” he said.

The pieces he showcased were on sale the day of the event. Jencks said he was surprised and honored for one of the interior design professors to have bought his coffee table piece for $100. For the showcase in Percival Hall, students were paired with a company or nonprofit organization in the Morgantown area and were assigned the task of crafting visual representation of the organization. At the same time, they were asked to center their designs around a particular decade. A standout design was from Tierney Shockey, a stu-

dent in the visual merchandising course, and the rest of her group. “For our project we were given the ’60s to work with. So we decided to pair with the Mountain People’s CoOp,” Shockey said. Her group’s work was focused on dismantling the image of the “dirty hippie.” The display was meant to represent a produce stand that might be found at a summer concert like Coachella. The display featured soft violets, the bright colors of fresh produce and even a copy of The DA featuring a story about the legalization of marijuana. All of the ele-

ments came together to give a professional touch to the event. A major reason for the Day of Design was to foster the integration of different disciplines. “In the real world, all of our majors are going to work together, so it was a good experience to get to work with different majors and see how they all come together,” said Chelsea McCann, an interior design student who worked on “Fobs.” To find out more information about the Division of Design & Merchandising, visit daa&

Columnist discusses life after college Carly Smith A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeum

In the coming days, a new group of college graduates will be walking across the stage and turning their tassels to the left. So, you’ve finished your degree, and your car is packed to head out for life after college. Now what? You might feel as though your time at West Virginia University hasn’t prepared you for “real life” after college, and that’s okay. Here are a few tips to help you adjust. 1. Stay calm. It’s completely normal to be stressed and overwhelmed. This is a start of a new chapter in your life, but think of the positives and relax. You’re done with school. No more homework, grades or group projects. Take a minute to breathe and be in the moment – you’re graduating college. We should

be excited to tackle this next phase in our lives. 2. Reminisce old times, but look ahead. Moving on from college is hard. All of your friends were a phone call or text away, or you lived with them. Your rent was cheap. Ramen noodles were lunch and dinner. Now all of a sudden, you have to be a grown up? It’s hard to let go of the carefree life you led in college, but this is the time you’ve been looking forward to and preparing for during the last four years. It’s okay to think about the old times, but don’t let it get in the way of your amazing future ahead. Set goals for your new job and apply what you’ve learned. Shop for your new apartment, but use some furniture from your old one. Make new friends, but stay in touch with your college roommates. Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened, and look ahead to the next phase of your life.

3. Make time for yourself. Make some time for you to unwind and decompress after a stressful few months. Between job searching, interviews, moving and finals, you’ve got to be worn out. Find a hobby or pick up an old one. Whether it’s exercise, hanging out with friends or watching your favorite TV show, you have to find something that you love to do. 4. Have fun. While college is over, your life isn’t. You’re still young and have many years ahead of you to make memories and have fun. It’s been great writing for The Daily Athenaeum, and I’m excited to take the next step in my life after graduation. I’m going to follow my own advice and enjoy these last few days in Morgantown. Congratulations, graduates! Don’t forget, once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer. daa&

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s ‘Swan Lake’ fills CAC, supplies classic story BY TIFFANY BENSON A&E WRITER @DAILYATHENAEUM

The renowned Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and orchestra performed “Swan Lake” in the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre at the Creative Arts Center Sunday afternoon. The experience was different from most ballet performances because of the live music. Most ballets are performed on recordings, and the live music for this performance added more depth to the experience. The crowd ranged from young to old and had some WVU faculty, staff and students in attendance. It was nearly a full house. “I’ve been to a couple of ballets before, but not at the CAC,” said Nikki Morgan, an elementary education student. “The orchestra playing made all of the difference, because you could see it being played right in front of you. It made it so much more real.” All of the Pittsburgh Bal-

let Theatre’s performances at the CAC have been played with live music, thanks to an anonymous donor who gives a large contribution to make it happen. The crowd hushed as the curtains began to rise, and the ominous sounds came from the pit where the orchestra was nestled. And suddenly, the audience was taken to another place. A dark tree line formed as fog began to fill the stage, and the dancers appeared. The elegance and romanticism was brought to life as the swan princess, Odette, and Prince Siegfried fought to show their love. “Ever ything looked amazing,” Morgan said. “It was all so elaborate that it took you a few minutes to take in everything and notice all of the detail in the set.” As the story goes, Odette was cursed by an evil sorcerer, so she turned into a swan. The only time she was a human was late at night. In order to break the spell,

the prince had to prove his love for her and not do her any wrong. The costumes brought to life the elegance of being a part of a kingdom and a fairy tale. Everything was pure white and smothered in jewels and lace. When the Queen Mother, Prince Siegfried’s mom, entered, the entire cast stopped. She had a high, beehive-like hairstyle, a medieval gown flowing across the floor and a necklace as opulent as the crown jewels. “I felt like I was dropped into the Disney movie; it looked so magical,” Morgan said. “The costumes were gorgeous. You could tell so much work went into building sets and making costumes like that.” The crowd joined in simultaneous laughter when the prince’s friends were goofing off at the birthday party in the first scene. The prince was taking turns dancing with the six eligible princesses, one of whom he will choose to marry, and

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s ‘Swan Lake’ is performed at Point Park University. when he went to kiss them on the cheek, his friend interrupted, and the prince kissed him instead. Director Terrence S. Orr did an incredible job bringing to life this classic story, along with Charles Barker who conducted the orchestra. The synced-to-per-

fection choreography and magical, heartfelt songs had the entire crowd interested from beginning to end. “If you didn’t come, then you’re missing out,” Morgan said. “I was impressed by the entire performance. I couldn’t imagine being able to dance like that. You could

just tell all of the heart that was put into the show.” Even though in the end Odette and Prince Siegfried must kill themselves to be together, it was a beautiful and dramatic ending to the great performance. daa&

Iggy Azalea releases album ‘The New Classic,’ crossing multiple genres mitchell glazier a&e writer @dailyathenaeum

««««« Australian-born rapper Iggy Azalea released her sophomore album Tuesday to international success. “The New Classic” consists of 15 tracks and several pieces of previously unreleased material. Two of these tracks, “Fancy” and “Work,” were preceded by successful music videos, which together have more 50 million views on Youtube. speculates the album will sell between 50,000 and 55,000 copies during its first week, which should secure at least a top-five spot on the Hot 200 Chart. Currently, Azalea’s single “Fancy” sits at No. 76 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart. But the album skyrocketed to the top of the iTunes Top Albums chart. Blending orchestral ele-

ments with traditional R&B styling, Iggy Azalea is set to become an international cross-genre success. With the initial release of the platinum single “Fancy,” which features the talents of Charlie XCX, Iggy Azalea released an accompanying music video that broke YouTube viewing records within an hour of its release. The video is a current spin on the 1995 cult movie classic, “Clueless.” Featuring ’90sera fashion and reimagined scenes from the film, the music video garnered both visual and vocal praise from many critics. “While the Australian Iggy and the British Charlie really have the gum-chomping Beverly Hills thing down, the wardrobes are the real star of the video,” said Carl Williot from “Work” is a track that lyrically chronicles her rise from obscurity and poverty from rural Australia to the dazzling, make-or-break city of Los Angeles. The accompanying music video features Azalea selling herself for to pay for her rent,

which, as Iggy Azalea tells in an interview, was a price she had to pay for success. The album truly transcends genres, making it an essential for any lover of contemporary R&B, pop, rock or reggae. Azalea’s approach to lyricism is different in comparison to contemporary rap industry heavyweights, such as Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. With this, there is an incredible attention to detail in every track of “The New Classic.” This is a potent album that holds its own among contemporary greats such as Janelle Monae and Kendrick Lamar. Not only does she bring talent to the recording studio, Azalea also holds her own in performances. If powerful lyrics and a stimulating new sound are something you’re craving this spring, “The New Classic” just may be what you are looking for. “The New Classic,” is available for download on iTunes for $9.99.


Top four ways to stay healthy, happy during summer vacation carly smith A&e writer @dailyathenaeum

Bikini season is upon us, and while you may already be in shape for the beach, we all need to treat our bodies right once summer vacation begins. Planning on spending the summer by the shore? Staying in Morgantown or headed home? No matter where you are, there’s always a way to fit in exercise and healthy eating habits to maintain a beach body throughout the summer. Those spending their vacation by the ocean, head to the water for a workout. Swimming is a great fullbody exercise. Swim parallel to the shore in the ocean to avoid rip currents or swim laps

in the pool. Another great water workout is jogging in place underwater. Use the hot sand to your advantage. Jogging on the shore allows you to burn more calories while getting a tan. Be sure to pack super snacks wherever you go to avoid munching on junk food. Fill a cooler with celery, PB2 peanut butter and fresh-cut watermelon. Those spending their vacation working may think there isn’t time to devote to fitness or eating healthy. Wrong. If you’re on your feet all day, take a minute to yourself and do squats or lunges. If you’re sitting at a desk, take a break and stand up every hour to jog in place for a minute. Bring a water bottle and

a big, colorful salad to keep you full throughout your shift. After work, to decompress, hit the gym or take a walk around your neighborhood. If you’re relaxing at home or staying in Morgantown, there’s still ways to stay fit and healthy. While catching reruns of “Boy Meets World” or “Saved By The

Bell”, challenge yourself to do as many crunches, push-ups, jumping jacks, lunges or any other exercise as you can during every commercial break. But don’t stay inside all summer. Head out to get some nice, fresh air. Head to the Deckers Creek Rail Trail and go for a jog or long walk to clear your mind. Just because you’re

vegging out, don’t blow your beach body on some junk food. Stock your refrigerator with fruits and vegetables to use to make a smoothie. Smoothies are packed with antioxidants and will keep you fuller longer. Munch on some rice cakes or dark chocolate if you’ve got a sweet tooth. Remember, even though


you might want to shed some pounds or tone up this summer, everything is fine in moderation. Don’t ditch your best friends who want to go out for a burger. Treat yourself. Fuel your body and mind with healthy snacks and exercise to look and feel your best this summer. daa&

Mike Tramp of White Lion to rock Schmitt’s Saloon by jake jarvis A&E writer @dailyathenaeum

Get ready classic rock fans. Mike Tramp of ’80s band White Lion is set to perform at Schmitt’s Saloon tonight. The 53-year-old Danish musician isn’t done with his music career yet; like an energizer bunny he keeps going and going. White Lion is known best for their 1988 single “When the Children Cry.” This song peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and was the band’s first and biggest commercial breakthrough. This, as well as their other popular single “Wait,” came from the band’s most memorable album “Pride.” This album brought success for the band, landing them the coveted position of opening for famous bands like Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss

and AC/DC. “Pride” sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S. alone, allowing the record to achieve double platinum status. In 2008, Tramp reformed the band, dubbing it “Tramp’s White Lion.” The success from this revamp received lukewarm responses from critics. Since then, Tramp has been touring through Europe and working on his solo career. For the first time in five years, Tramp has returned to the U.S. “For starters, this is not 1988, and I am not trying to keep that flame alive or burning, but rather show how you can take great and timeless songs with you into the future,” Tramp said. He stressed he is trying to grow older with his music and not trying to fit an image people still have of his

younger self. At Schmitt’s, Tramp will not be performing with a large band. Instead, he will be performing solo with only a guitar and a voice that’s sung four decades of music. “People sometimes think this is just a scaled-down version of a rock band that I do,” he said. “But this is both who I am and what I am, and it’s much more than what some people call unplugged.” Tramp is currently halfway though his U.S. tour, traveling to 40 different cities across the country. All of this touring has clearly taken a toll on his family life. With three children he doesn’t get to see as often as he’d like, this tour has been causing Tramp heartache. Tramp took to his Facebook page to apologize to his children for being away, Wednesday. “I know I am far away from

you and life is unfair, but you are with me in every heartbeat and breath I take, and it won’t always be this way,” he wrote. It’s not all tears, however, as Tramp’s son, Dylan, has joined his father on this tour. Tramp said his latest album, “Museum,” was recorded in late 2013 as he was finishing his most recent European tour. The album is reportedly finished, but when asked if fans might get to hear a sneak peek of the new music, he said it was too early for that. “I want people to hear the new songs the proper way, not a lousy version recorded live while people are talking,” he said. Though the subject matter of “Museum” is too early to speculate, it is clear Tramp will continue to build upon the already strong relationship he has with his fans.

Mike Tramp performs unplugged. Many of his fans are the same age as he and going through the same life struggles. For fans of Tramp looking to keep up with the musician, visit http://facebook. com/miketrampofficial to get weekly updates and special videos of Tramp performing exclusive songs.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased at http:// for $7 plus a small fee or at the door for $10. The show begins at 8 p.m. and is open to those age 21 and older. daa&

The West Virginia baseball team used solid starting pitching and timely hitting to beat the rain and the Kansas State Wildcats this weekend at Hawley Field. The Mountaineers swept K-State, winning 10-1, 6-5 and 6-1. “We have things rolling, and things are flipped in our direction,” said WVU head coach Randy Mazey. “We deserved it. We deserved that for everything we’ve been through and the guys believing in themselves.” WVU will exit the weekend sitting at 24-16 and an even 7-7

inside the Big 12 Conference. The Mountaineers had to wait to begin the series Friday night as rain showers swept through the area. However, West Virginia starting pitcher Harrison Musgrave was ready when the skies cleared. Musgrave tossed eight innings of shutout ball, allowing just three hits and striking out eight. The junior snapped his personal two-game losing streak and picked up his fourth victory of the season. “I thought the rain delay affected him a little bit,” Mazey said. “He wasn’t all that sharp in the first few innings. Once he settled in, he was typical Harrison (Musgrave). He was really good.”


The Mountaineers gave Musgrave plenty of run support, and the team pounded out 13 hits. Four players finished the night with multiple hits while shortstop Taylor Munden, outfielder Bobby Boyd, second baseman Billy Fleming and first baseman Ryan McBroom all drove in a pair of runs. Wildcats’ starter Levi MaVorhis went 5.1 innings, allowing nine runs on nine hits in the loss. Saturday’s game two wouldn’t come quite as easy for the Mountaineers. WVU starter John Means allowed five runs in the first three innings of his day. However, the junior left-hander settled

down and finished the afternoon going 6.2 innings on 121 pitches. The Mountaineers trailed Kansas State 5-3 going in to the bottom of the ninth. Following a leadoff walk to outfielder Jackson Cramer and a double by catcher Cam O’Brien, West Virginia cut the K-State lead to 5-4 after Cramer scored on a wild pitch with Michael Constantini at the plate. WVU tied the game two batters later when Boyd flied out to right, scoring pinch runner Trevor Simms. The Mountaineers walked off on the very next hitter when Fleming drove in the winning run on a fielder’s choice.

“Coming back like that showed our heart and our ability to come from behind,” Fleming said. “It was an awesome win. We’re just trying to keep riding (the winning streak) right now. We are all together as one right now, we’re a very tight-knit group, and everything we are trying to do is working out.” West Virginia finished the three-game sweep Sunday afternoon with help by starter Ross Vance who went seven strong innings, allowing just one run on five hits in a 6-1 victory. Vance earned his third consecutive win on his first weekend start of his Mountaineer career. WVU was led offensively

by Cramer, who drove in three runs Sunday. The junior has 13 RBIs in his last seven games. “That’s only the second time we’ve been in this position where we won the first two games of a weekend,” Mazey said. “This was a huge game just to prove that if we’re in this situation again, we’re starting to get confidence in the third game of a series.” The Mountaineers have now won six straight games and seven of their last eight. WVU is back on the diamond Wednesday night in Charleston against in-state rival Marshall.

Only two weeks have passed, but it seems like a long time since West Virginia was mired in a seven-game losing streak and in danger of not qualifying for any kind of postseason play. The Mountaineers, who capped off a three-game sweep of Kansas State with a 6-1 win Sunday, are now playing some of their best baseball of the season. Largely due to an extended offensive outburst, West Virginia has won six straight games and has evened its conference record at 7-7. For the first time this season, the Mountaineers

were able to finish a three game sweep of a conference opponent, something head coach Randy Mazey said proved a lot about his team. “Opportunities come by not that often in life, as they don’t in college baseball. That’s the second time we’ve been in this position where we’ve won the first two games on the weekend. “This was a huge game just to prove to us that if we’re in this situation again, we’re starting to get confidence in the third game of a series,” he said. With a little over three weeks left in the season, the Mountaineers are in position to qualify for the Big 12 tournament. Because of the nature of

tournament play, Mazey said getting into the habit of stringing several wins together in a series during the regular season will ultimately benefit a team during the postseason. “When you get into postseason tournaments and that type of thing, you’ve got to play a lot of games in a short period of time, and it’s good to know that you can still come out and grind one out in game three,” he said. After starting the conference season with a 2-0 record, the Mountaineers stumbled in a big way. The team was swept on the road against TCU in early April and dropped three in a row at home against Oklahoma State April 11-13. While their prospects for making any sort of run during Big 12 play seemed bleak at the time, Mazey said the Mountineers never let the losing streak get to their heads. “This league is tough. We never got down on anybody and stayed positive. We knew it was going to turn on us and right now we’re feeling pretty confident at the plate,

Monday April 28, 2014

When I first walked into the office of The Daily Athenaeum more than three years ago, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. As an aspiring sports journalist, it seemed like an intriguing opportunity to cultivate some realworld writing and reporting experience – a platform to develop a voice. But in retrospect, it was also much, much more. I originally started out as an Opinion columnist, writing a weekly column based on some kind of controversial current event or issue. Eventually, after accruing some much-needed experience and confidence as a columnist, I moved over to the Sports section, where I covered West Virginia soccer, baseball, men’s basketball and football for the next three-plus years. Hundreds of game recaps, previews, features and sports columns later, I’m sure I’ve expanded my abilities as a journalist and writer, but more importantly, I’ve been blessed with countless unforgettable experiences and forged a multitude of relationships with some of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. My rewarding time at The DA took me from the rickety, wooden press box at Hawley Field to the pinnacle of all sports cathedrals – Yankee Stadium – and a number of other exciting venues across the nation. I also had the distinct privilege of covering three of the most dynamic, explosive and exciting offensive players to ever suit up in West Virginia colors in Geno Smith, Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, a future Super Bowl champion in Bruce Irvin and countless other WVU athletes during the prime of their collegiate careers. I’ve had the unique chance to regularly pose inquiries to head coaches Dana Holgorsen and Bob Huggins, an exercise I could only ever dream about growing up, but at The DA, it became a reality. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am at today, but I’m also completely aware I’ve been a beneficiary of those around me and would like to use this opportunity to thank and recognize a few of these special people. First of all, I might not even be here if I wasn’t hired by Michael Carvelli, Nick Arthur and Cody Schuler in 2011. They were more than just my first editors; they were really my first-ever colleagues in the industry I one day hope to call a career. They worked hard to get me to the Pinstripe Bowl. As a devoted New York Yankees fan, I will never forget sitting in Yankee Stadium’s press box and getting the chance to explore the bowels of my most beloved sports venue. Connor Murray and Amit Batra have done a phenomenal job of carrying the torch since they took over The DA’s Sports section, and it has been a privilege to serve them, as well. I’d like to recognize two more of my esteemed colleagues, Greg Madia and Joe Mitchin, who do their jobs as well as anybody I know. Long live the Moose, boys. Finally, I’d like to thank the rest of my friends, my parents, my sister, and of course, all the readers. It was an absolute privilege to be able to write for you on a regular basis, and I know I’ll miss it.

Rangers push Flyers to brink of elimination NEW YORK (AP) — Brad Richards and Dominic Moore scored second-period goals, and Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves as the New York Rangers pushed the Philadelphia Flyers to the brink of elimination with a 4-2 victory in Game 5 on Sunday. Defenseman Marc Staal gave the Rangers the lead in the first period and they extended it in the second in taking a 3-2 edge in the first-round series. Game 6 is Tuesday in Philadelphia. If necessary, a deciding seventh game would be back at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. The teams have alternated wins the entire series. Philadelphia’s Steve Mason wasn’t nearly as sharp in his second straight start following a late-season injury. He stopped 18 shots after his 37-save effort in a 2-1 victory in Game 4 got the Flyers even. Vinny Lecavalier made it 3-1 late in the second period on the power play, and Claude Giroux scored his first of the series with 1:29

left after Mason was pulled for an extra skater. But Moore won a race to negate an icing call and fed a pass to Brian Boyle, who scored with 15 seconds left to seal it. The Rangers increased their pressure in tight on Mason, which was a stated goal, and created multiple scoring chances in the second period even though they managed only eight shots. New York thought it grabbed a 2-0 lead 2:14 in when Martin St. Louis poked in a loose puck in the crease after it got behind Mason, but the play had been blown dead. The Rangers took their two-goal lead at 8:07 of the second on Richards’ second of the series and 30th career playoff score. With a crowd in front and beside Mason, Richards brought the puck out from behind the net and tucked in a backhander at the left post off assists from J.T. Miller and Carl Hagelin. Unlike in previous games in which the Rangers allowed the Flyers to

rally from 2-0 deficits, New York pushed its edge to 3-0 later in the period with a big assist from Flyers defenseman Hal Gill, playing his first game of the series. Gill was unable to handle a rough pass at the Philadelphia blue line from defense partner Braydon Coburn. Moore swooped in to poke it behind him and skate in alone on Mason. Moore beat Mason for his second of the series and then leapt into the arms of Boyle, sending them both to the ice. Philadelphia finally took advantage on its fifth power play when Lecavalier scored with 32.6 seconds left in the second period. Lecavalier has one goal in the series and 25 in 68 career playoff games. The Flyers didn’t muster a shot until 12:37 remained in the opening period, and finished with only eight in the frame despite two power plays. The Rangers had only six shots on Mason, but one got past him. St. Louis raced the puck into the Philadelphia end at the center of the blue

His fluttering shot from above the circle appeared to hit Mason’s arm before nestling into the net behind him. It was Staal’s first goal in 29 games, dating to Jan. 26 against New Jersey outdoors at Yankee Stadium. NOTES: The Rangers put the 21-year-old Miller into the lineup in place of agitator Daniel Carcillo, who


played the previous two games. It was Miller’s career postseason debut. ... As expected, the 39-yearold Gill replaced defenseman Nick Grossmann, who injured his right knee in Game 4. Gill played in only six regular-season games. ... New York was 3 for 12 on the power play in the first two games, but is 0 for 11 since, including 0 for 3 Sunday.

Obama: reported comments by team owner ‘racist’ KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — President Barack Obama said Sunday that comments reportedly made by the owner of a U.S. pro basketball team are “incredibly offensive racist statements,” before casting them as part of a continuing legacy of slavery and segregation that Americans must confront. “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk,” Obama said when asked to respond to the reported comments from Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling. Obama’s description of the controversy as part of a larger historical context is the latest example of his continuing willingness to expound on matters of race in his second term. After avoiding much mention of race relations during his campaign to become the first black president and in his first term, the president last summer offered a personal re-

flection in response to the shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin. And now Obama has spoken out against an audio recording of a man identified as Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to games. The firestorm over St e r l i n g ’s c o m m e nt s has quickly engulfed the National Basketball Association. Obama cast the comments through a broader prism of racism in America, adding that “we constantly have to be on guard on racial attitudes that divide us rather than embracing our diversity as a strength.” “The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that’s still there, the vestiges of discrimination,” Obama said during a news conference in Malaysia, where he was traveling. “We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often,” he

added. “And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why statements like this stand out some much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.” In the recording attributed to Sterling recording and posted on the website TMZ, a male voice questions his girlfriend’s association with minorities. TMZ reported the woman, V. Stiviano, is of black and Mexican descent. The man asks Stiviano not to broadcast her association with black people or bring black people to games. The man specifically mentions Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson on the recording, saying, “Don’t bring him to my games, OK?” Obama said he’s confident NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will address the matter. He said the NBA has “an awful lot of African American players, it’s


team is starting to show up,” he said. “And the big comeback win against Oklahoma last Saturday compelled us and proved to our guys that no matter what, we’re never out of this thing.” While the regular season beginning to wind down, West Virginia has climbed its way out of the

Big 12’s basement and placed itself firmly in the middle of the pack in the conference. Finishing No. 3 in the league like they did in 2013 may seem unlikely, but if the Mountaineers continue their recent pace, it might not be impossible.

Continued from page 10 on the mound and on defense,” he said. Now riding a six-game winning streak, which started with a comefrom-behind victory that clinched a series win on the road against Oklahoma April 19, Mazey said the true identity of this West Virginia team is starting to reveal itself. “The character of this

ticity of the audio tape and interview both Sterling and the woman in the recording. He called the tape “disturbing and offensive” and promised to investigate quickly.

WVU responds to Rigg’s Pell Grant story by greg madia sports writer @dailyathenaeum

In a Daily Athenaeum article Wednesday, former West Virginia linebacker Doug Rigg explained issues with personal finances during his time as a student-athlete. Rigg acknowledged problems with Pell Grant, a federally funded grant that works like a stipend. Student-athletes (or any general student on a full academic scholarship) are allowed to receive Pell Grants in addition to their full scholarship. Rigg said he was “penalized” for the major he chose. Rigg, an exercise physiology studemt, had to pay money back from his Pell Grant check to West Virginia University for costs that should have been fully paid for by his scholarship. One important note for clarification purposes: Rigg had his tuition covered by his scholarship. West Virginia University isn’t allowed to speak about any student-athlete or any student’s personal finances but responded generally in a statement. “Full scholarship studentathletes are not penalized financially based on their major. Whether it’s general

studies or medical school, a full athletics grant-in-air covers the total cost of tuition, fees and books in addition to a room and board stipend,” said WVU spokesman Michael Fragale in a statement. WVU simply pays for what it is allowed to pay for and cost of attendance isn’t covered by the scholarship. “It is important to note – NCAA rules do not currently permit institutions to award athletics aid beyond the cost of tuition, fees, room, board and books,” Fragale said. “As a result, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses related to attendance at an institution that are included in the calculation of cost of attendance are not included in a full athletics grant-in-aid. That rule is across the board at every NCAA institution and thus you have one of the many current debates that is going on with the NCAA.” The NCAA says its rules allow for student-athletes to receive Pell Grants on top of a scholarship, but the NCAA does not award or take away the grants and doesn’t regulate how those funds are spent. Rigg will graduate in May from WVU.

Mountaineers complete Penn Relays The West Virginia University women’s track team competed at Penn Relays in Philadelphia this weekend. On the first day of Penn Relays, senior Sarah Martinelli won the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 10:17.47. Martinelli and fellow senior Allison Lasnicki finished second in the 10,000-meter rash with a time of 34:11.20. Later in the afternoon, Chene Townsend represented her team in

the 100-meter hurdles. Townsend finished just outside the top 10 with a time of 13.72. Her best time of the season, 13.54, earned her No. 29 in the nation. On the field, senior Stormy Nesbit competed for the Mountaineers in the triple jump. Her leap of 12.71 meters was a season-best mark for her. Her leap earned her the No. 23 ranking in triple jump this season. In high jump, sopho-

more Marsielle McBeam earned a fourth place finish with a jump of 1.68 meters. Head coach Sean Cleary will have two weeks to prepare for the Virginia Challenge, which is held on May 9-10 in Charlottesville, Va. The Virginia Challenge will be the last meet for the Mountaineers before the Big 12 Outdoor Championships May 16-18 in Lubbock, Texas. —jf


Jordan ‘disgusted’ by alleged comments CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Michael Jordan said he’s both disgusted and outraged by the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, released a statement Sunday addressing the matter. He said that as an owner, “I’m completely disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views.” As a former player, Jordan says “I’m completely outraged.” An audio recording obtained by TMZ alleges that Sterling made racist comments to a girlfriend,

including urging her not to bring black friends to Clippers games. The NBA and the Clippers are investigating, including whether the male voice on the recording is in fact Sterling’s. Jordan said he is confident that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will investigate the matter fully and “take appropriate action quickly.” “There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed,” Jordan said. “I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the high-

est levels of our sport. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level.” Jordan’s Bobcats trail the Miami Heat 3-0 in a best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series that resumes in Charlotte on Monday night.

Harper placed on disabled list

The Daily Athenaeum



Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper slides into third base against the San Diego Padres earlier this season. WASHINGTON (AP) — Star outfielder Bryce Harper was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Washington Nationals on Sunday with a sprained left thumb. The move is retroactive to Saturday. Harper hurt his hand with a head-first slide into third base Friday night after hitting a third-inning, bases-loaded triple in Washington’s 11-1 victory. He stayed in the game for an inning before he was replaced. “It’s part of baseball.

You slide into the bag and sometimes you get your fingers,” Harper said. “It’s a bummer, but hopefully I’ll be back soon.” Harper will fly to Cleveland on Monday to see prominent hand specialist Thomas Graham for a second opinion. For now, his proscribed treatment is ice. “Hopefully 15 days go by and I can get back out there,” Harper said. “We’ll see how I feel in 15.” Harper joins starting catcher Wilson Ramos

and starting third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the disabled list, both with hand injuries. Ramos, hurt on opening day, had surgery on his left hand. Zimmerman broke his right thumb also sliding into a bag, on April 12. Also on the DL are starting pitcher Doug Fister (back), who is scheduled for a rehab start on Sunday, and reserve outfielder Scott Hairston (side). “We’ve got a lot of off days in the next 15, so that’s huge,” Harper said.

Harper went 2 for 2 and had a career-high four RBIs on Friday night, giving him nine for the season as he lifted his batting average to .289. He has only one home run in 83 at-bats. “It’s frustrating,” Harper said. “I want to be out there and be able to help my team win every single day.” Steven Souza Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to replace him on the roster but was not in the lineup Sunday.

Thunder beat Grizzlies in OT MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Reggie Jackson came off the bench and outscored teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook by himself. The Oklahoma City Thunder needed every point from their top reserve to win yet another overtime game against Memphis. Jackson scored a personal playoff-best 32 points, and the Thunder beat the Grizzlies 92-89 Saturday night, tying up their first-round Western Conference series at two apiece. “Reggie played an outstanding basketball game,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He was able to attack and finish around the rim like he’s done all year, and I knew he would bounce back ... He’s done a great job of coming in and giving us that lift offensively when we needed it as a sixth man.” The Thunder sure

needed him to avoid going back home in a 3-1 hole after three straight overtime games. Jackson had only scored 15 points combined in this series, but the guard shook off his shooting woes by hitting 11 of 16. Durant and Russell Westbrook, who struggled through their worst scoring game of the series with a combined 11 of 45 and 15 points apiece. He said a few made layups finally got him going. Jackson said Durant and Westbrook were allowing him to play. “They told me to just keep going and be aggressive,” Jackson said. The Thunder blew a 14-point lead with Memphis, and the Grizzlies blew a third straight fourth-quarter lead themselves. Jackson tied up Memphis with five straight points in the final minute of regulation, and he hit

all six free throws in overtime as the Thunder survived an extra period with seven lead changes. “They’re running plays for him with Durant and Westbrooks spaced out,” Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. “If you’re going down, my hat’s off to them, both guys did a great job, and Reggie Jackson did a great job just being in attack mode.” Durant’s two free throws with 1:02 left in overtime put the Thunder ahead to stay. “One of the things I was pleased about was the way Russ and KD took a backseat tonight and let Reggie take over,” Thunder center Kendrick Perkins said. “That says a lot about them also.” Game 5 is Tuesday night back in Oklahoma City. Mike Conley missed a 26-footer just before the buzzer that could have forced a second extra period. Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka also blocked a Tony Allen shot with 2.7 seconds left in regulation to keep the Thunder alive for overtime. The Thunder won for only the second time in seven playoff games in Memphis, and this was just their second in eight overtimes with the Grizzlies since the start of the 2010-11 season. Oklahoma City also snapped

Memphis’ franchise-record 15-game winning streak. Ibaka added 12 points for Oklahoma City. The Thunder outrebounded Memphis 58-49 and got 12 offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter and overtime combined. Marc Gasol led Memphis with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Allen had 14 points and 13 rebounds, Conley had 14 points and Zach Randolph added 11. Gasol said he expects the Grizzlies will be more aggressive with Jackson in the next game. But he also noted they have to do better against the likes of Ibaka and Caron Butler. “Those are the guys that are going to be the difference in the series,” Gasol said. The Grizzlies blew a fourth-quarter lead for a third straight game. They last led 87-86 after Conley hit a step-back jumper. Then Duran hit two free throws with 1:02 left to put the Thunder ahead to stay, and Jackson sealed it with four free throws in the final 12.2 seconds. With NBA commissioner Adam Silver and former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer on hand, the Thunder got back to passing the ball and shooting better with the exception of Durant and Westbrook.
