Graduation deadlines approaching Final EWP submission also needed to graduate Staff Report

jason howell | The Daily Eastern Ne ws

The Charleston Fire Department and Ameren responded to reports of a gas leak at the corner of Ninth Street and Garfield Avenue at 1 p.m. Friday. Vehicle and pedestrian traffic was rerouted around the affected area as a precaution until 2:35 p.m. when the leak was stopped. An onsite gas supervisor with Ameren said that A&R Mechanical Contractors, while working on the steam pipes that run from Eastern’s Center for Clean Energy Research and Education, cut the edge of a 2-inch gas main.

CFD, Ameren respond to gas leak By Staff Report The Charleston Fire Department and Ameren employees responded to a gas leak at the intersection of Ninth Street and Garfield Avenue at 1 p.m. Friday. The A&R Mechanical Contractors crew drilled through the edge of the 2-inch main pipe while working on fixing the steam tunnels, which run from the university’s Center for Clean Energy Research and Education. Steve Bennett, the Assistant Fire Chief of the Charleston Fire Department, said the

firefighters monitored the gas meters in the area and found no traces of gas other than in the hole where the gas line was hit. “It was basically being diffused in the air enough to where the only readings was right at the hole,” Bennett said. “There was really no danger; we just shutdown the area as a precaution.” The intersection was partially opened at 2:35 p.m., and people were allowed to go through again. The on-site Ameren gas supervisor said it took a little while to start fixing the line be-

cause they had to make sure the valve would shut off the gas line. To fix the line, they cut behind where the line was hit and fused on a new cap. When the gas line was shut off, the Greenwood School House Museum was the only Ameren customer who did not have access to gas for the allotted time. The intersection was fully opened at around 3:30 p.m. after the Ameren crew fixed the pipe.

Applications for Eastern students graduating at the end of this semester are due by Wednesday. All applications should be submitted through the university’s PAWS system and will include a degree requirements review sent by the Graduate School. The review tracks each student’s progress toward graduation and will be mailed to students. The university currently requires every student to submit at least three articles to their Electronic Writing Portfolios as well. To stay on track, two papers should be submitted before students have earned 60 credit hours. The third, however, can be submitted at any time before graduation. The Electronic Writing Portfolio only accepts one paper per class; however, multiple papers per semester may be submitted. Two ceremonies for fall commencement will be on Dec. 14, with students from the Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences and College of Arts and Humanities celebrating at 10 a.m. Students from the College of Education and Professional Studies, College of Sciences, and the School of Continuing Education will be walking at 1 p.m. Students wishing to participate in commencement are expected to a rent a cap and gown from Herff-Jones, the university’s preferred vendor, which can be fulfilled on the Eastern website. Caps and gowns will be available for pickup on Dec. 12 and 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Charleston-Mattoon Room of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. For any questions, students should email Patti Bailey at the Graduate School, or call 581-5937.

GLAM models strut in sin for fashion show Performances bring to life seven deadly sins By Marcus Curtis Entertainment Editor | @DEN_News The GLAM Fashion Agency modeled their unique fashion designs and ripped the runway at their “7 Deadly Sins” themed fashion show. Displaying abstract and modern fashion styles Friday in the Grand Ballroom of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union, the agency also had participants perform dance selections as the “7 Deadly Sins” morphed into more of a haunted theme. Each scene in the fashion show was dedicated to an individual deadly sin: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The lust scene was filled with risqué dance movements and interactions between male

and female models. The scene started with a small burlesque dance scene from half-dressed female models in leotards and lingerie. Later, half-dressed male models entered the scene. The lust scene garnered a few whistles and cheers from the audience. When models would walk to the end of the runway, there were words of encouragement and recognition shouted from the crowd as well. Models interacted with the crowd by walking through the aisles of the seats in the Grand Ballroom. The burlesque dance routine complimented by the partially clothed models captured the focus of the lust scene.

Carnegie to auction NCA explores education quality Christmas trees at meeting Staff Report

By Chris Wasson Staff Reporter | @DEN_News The North Central Association committee critiqued Eastern’s accreditation status concerning criteria from the NCA guidelines regarding Eastern’s programs and services and the self-study results Friday. The meeting was part of the committee’s monthly First Friday meeting, in which different criteria is reviewed. This month’s meeting regarded the third criterion of the NCA guidelines, which include Eastern’s high-quality education. Members of the subcommittee informed committee members of what guidelines Eastern’s programs, faculty and environment need to have in order to gain its accreditation. The presentation, provided by subcommittee co-chairs Bonnie Irwin, the dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, and Mike Mulvaney, a recreation administration professor, reported the core components of the third criterion that must be met for Eastern. The presentation titled, “Teaching and Learning: Quality, Resources and Support,” contains components, such as degree programs appropriate for higher education, broadening learning skills of intellectual inquiry, faculty and staff needed for effective programs and student services, student learning and effective teaching, and an enriched educational environment. Irwin and Mulvaney engaged the audience with a discussion between

professors and faculty by placing them into groups with components of the third criterion. Putting them into groups allowed the members a voice on what Eastern can do to make the guidelines more effective and agree on existing efficient programs and services. Jeff Stowell, a co-chair of the NCA Self-Study, revealed the results of the self-study was completed through the Eastern community. The results reported that twice the amount of people participated in this year’s study than the 2004 self-study that was done. “ This presentation was used to compare the results of the survey which was completed Sept. 16. Over 2,500 people have responded to the survey,” Stowell said. “The results will be available to the public next semester.” Bob Augustine, a co-chair of the self-study and the dean of the School of Business, announced next month’s meeting and what criteria will be discussed next. “We will be continuing Criteria 4, which is assessment,” Augustine said. He also announced subcommittee co-chairs Rebecca Throneburg, a communication disorders and sciences professor, and Karla Sanders, the executive director for the Center for Academic Support and Assessment, will lead the next meeting and presentation on Dec. 1.

Stompin’ out cancer

Sean Copel and | The Daily Eastern Ne ws

Students participate in the annual Stroll Like an Alpha fundraiser Friday in University Ballroom of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. Money raised was donated to a breast cancer awareness and research organization.

Eastern works to create fire safety in halls Eastern received a corporate award at the Illinois Fire Inspectors Association’s Fire Prevention Week meeting. It was awarded this honor for being the first state university to complete all the standards under the Fire Sprinkler Dormitory Act, which was enacted in 2005. The act required that all post-secondary institution’s on-campus housing have fire sprinklers installed by 2013. Eastern spent more than $10.5 million on the project to fit all the requirements of the act. While Eastern met the requirements of the Fire Sprinkler Dormitory Act, it is still improving the fire alarms and detectors in the dorms. Charleston Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief, Steve Bennett, said things such as steam or hair spray would trigger the detectors. Every building is given three strikes per year for non-emergency calls, such as fire alarm malfunctions.

The Charleston Fire Department responded to 90 calls from Eastern since Jan. 1. Out of the 90 calls, 22 were cooking-related calls, like burnt popcorn. Bennett said it costs the fire department roughly $600 to $800 per hour to respond to each call. Even false alarms can be dangerous for those responding to call. “Over a million dollars worth of apparatus vehicles (are) going down the road,” Bennett said. “Anytime we respond to a call, it is dangerous. Anytime you’re out on the road, you know, going through intersections is the most dangerous part of driving to a call.” Bennett said anytime there is a fire alarm, they roll a ladder and engine truck from one station and another engine truck and an ambulance. One station usually runs lights and sirens while the other does not for safety reasons. The station, which runs lights and sirens, notifies the other of whether it is a legitimate call. “If it is actually activated by a cook-

ing mishap or say there is a little smoke and not a fire, that doesn’t count because it is actually doing its job.” If there are more than three, the building is fined $100. Bennett said it is not a big deal when they are called even for false alarms though. He added Eastern has been very proactive with fire safety and stays in contact with the CFD. “We work really well with them, and we appreciate that. It helps out tremendously,” Bennett said. “When I first started back in ’99, we were going down to Carman Hall on the weekends four or five times a night for people pulling fire alarms just for fun.” With the addition of cameras in the residence halls, people pulling fire alarms for fun has dropped significantly. “I can’t remember the last time, prior to being shut down, we went to Carman Hall for that. We don’t have that many people pulling fire alarms anymore,” Bennett said. Tampering with detectors results in a class A misdemeanor, and the second offense will result in a class 4 felony.

Mark Hudson, the director of University Housing and Dining Services, said in the summer of 2012 Eastern spent $900,000 on a fire safety project, which added a new fire system to Ford, McKinney and Weller halls, including more sprinklers and a new multi-zone detector system. This system requires the smoke to hit two detectors in order to call the fire department. Once it hits the first smoke detector the internal fire alarms in the building will be set off. Currently the multi-zone detectors are only installed in the Triad. Hudson said it is only installed there because they had chronic problems with false alarms for cooking incidents. He added there are no plans right now to put these smarter systems in the other buildings. “We haven’t had the same level of chronic issues in other buildings as we have had in the Triad traditionally,” Hudson said. “I guess we haven’t done a lot of follow up on that since. The systems that are everywhere meet code, but

some places are just enhanced.” To lower the amount of false alarms, Housing and Dining staff has been working to educate the residents on cooking fires and how to prevent it. Hudson said they always educate them when they are first in on how to use a microwave properly and to follow directions. “We try to encourage them to read what you’re cooking,” Hudson said. He added when people are making food, especially late at night or early in the morning, there might be a lack of attention made to what students are doing. “And that’s when you create problems,” Hudson said. Hudson also said Eastern tries to keep up-to-date with its fire systems because the fire department might be distracted from a real emergency by a false alarm. It also dulls residents’ reaction times, which is a problem during a real emergency. Jarad Jarmon can be reached at 581-2812 or

‘Barn Party’ punishment not overreaction Something in the system broke down the morning of Sept. 15, and, in the break, it made it possible for what the Charleston Police Department are calling “attempted murder” to take place. Something broke in the system – whether it was security, location or the people let in – and it caused two people to go to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center with gunshot wounds, followed by a battery victim. For that, there must be consequences. In the wake of the “Barn Party” shooting, the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, who hosted the party, have been sentenced to a five-year suspension, 300-hour community service and a $2,000 fine – a fitting punishment. After the hearing, the fraternity sent out a petition to appeal the suspension of the fraternity, calling their sentence getting the “electric chair for not cleaning our bedroom.” The CPD, in their investigation of the shooting, have called it “attempted murder.” Attempted murder is not the same as not cleaning a bedroom, no matter how hard you want it to be. While the fraternity was probably expecting a slap on the wrist for this misconduct, it is probably the last thing needed. The fact of the matter is that it happened, and there needs to be consequences. Without consequences, there would be no rules or need for rules. The suspension is a good start to re-evaluate how the rules and securities are measured and how to improve upon them. After the “Barn Party” shooting, President Bill Perry temporarily suspended all late-night on-campus parties in order to re-evaluate their security measures and came up with a new plan. Following the university’s example, the fraternity should take this

time to look at how to improve and make sure this does not happen again if they are reinstated in 2019. The 300-hour community service and $2,000 fine to the city of Charleston is also a fitting consequence. Meeting at the parking lot of Ruler Foods, the “Barn Party” attendees left the place in shambles: broken bottles were littered the ground, with scraps of tickets spread out like confetti. And it was up to the storeowners and city members to clean up after their mess. Those two punishments are necessary to help repay Charleston for what they had to go through to make sure their own property was cleaned up. If we are following the petition’s logic of not cleaning up their room, it is actually as if the fraternity showed up in somebody else’s room and made a mess, refusing to clean up. A slap on the wrist would have been the wrong way to go about dealing with the incident on the university’s side. Without enforcing some sort of order, incidents like this could create a dangerous environment for students and community members. Even though the situation could have been much worse – the investigation could have just been called “murder,” not “attempted murder” – it still warrants this kind of reaction. So, no, this is not an electric chair for not cleaning up after yourself. This is a logical, well-deserved punishment. And it can be a good experience. Learn from it, and in the suspension time, figure out ways to improve upon what has been left behind. The daily editorial is the majority opinion of the editorial board of The Daily Eastern News.

Don’t rush; take life one step at a time In general, people are always in a rush, and I’ll admit that I can be one of those people, but as I have gotten older, I have learned not to rush and to take things one step at a time. As one of those people who rush, I have to remind myself a lot to slow down because I can’t get to the future without experiencing the present. I am a futuristic thinker, so over the years, my mind programmed itself to think about my future. Now, I am not saying thinking about the future is a bad thing, because it is not, but I am saying that way too many people jump without looking first. As a college student, there generally comes the point where we just want to be done, whether or not we are enjoying our college experience. I hit this point last spring. I participated in the Disney College Program during the fall 2012 school semester,

Emily Provance and it was a great experience, but I had to force myself to come back to school and finish. I had to reassure myself that I needed to take things one step at a time, and if I want to go back to Walt Disney World, it would be there after I graduated. Since coming back and hitting the realization that even though I am a futuristic thinker and I need to take things slowly, I have enjoyed my college experience a lot

more then I had before. Before this realization, college was just a step I had to do to get to where I wanted to go, but who really knows for sure where they want to go as an 18-years-old? I sure didn’t know; all I knew was it was nowhere near where I was. So, I guess what I am trying to tell you is, yes, you need to study, and, yes, you need to have fun time, but the most important thing is you need to take your time. No one has ever gotten anywhere, in a fair way, without doing things one step at a time. Enjoy your college experience and make the most of it because before you know it, you will be out in the real world, and those steps you had to take to get there will only be a memory.

Sinfully stylish

The Daily Eastern News | CAMPUS



Melanie Mckee, a junior health studies major, walks the runway at GLAM’s “7 Deadly Sins” fashion show that took place Friday in the Grand Ballroom of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. The fashion show centered on each of the seven deadly sins: lust, greed, wrath, sloth, gluttony, envy and pride.

Bryana Towns, a business administration major, walks the runway during GLAM’s “7 Deadly Sins” fashion show Friday in the Grand Ballroom of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.


GLAM’s models also managed to focus on the modern style of fashion in their envythemed scene. Models walked down the runway in soft and colorful fabrics that swayed as they caught wind from the impact of their walks down the runway. Another modern style of fashion displayed at the fashion show was from a guest designer Blake Martin. Models that sported Blake Martin’s designs were embroidered in leather and metallic material shirts and metallic-styled dresses. Additional styles displayed during the Blake Martin portion of the show were bold embroidered sweatshirts, denim shirts and jackets. To add more to the lust scene of the show was a swimsuit portion. Blake Martin Models were dressed in colorful animal print swim-

suits. There was also one female model that walked down the runway with nothing covering her bare torso but her arms. There were more interactions in the fashion show, when hosts invited members from the crowd to take a walk down the fashion runway. Children and even parents approached the stage and walked down the runway to loud songs from the speakers in the Grand Ballroom, while the audience clapped their hands and encouraged them. Keyonnie Jeffries, a junior pre-nursing major, said this was her first time attending one of GLAM’s fashion shows. “This was my first show,” she said. “It was very well put together.” In addition, Jeffries said the gluttony scene caught her attention the most.

“It was real different, the candy and stuff,” she said. Melanie McKee, a junior community health major and one of the GLAM models, said the crowd gave her confidence to perform. “I was nervous, but when I saw the crowd I was OK,” she said. Kendall Jackson, the chairman of GLAM Modeling, said one of his concerns for the show’s outcome centered on the models. “My expectations were to make sure all my models enjoyed themselves,” he said. In addition Jackson said he wanted to have an impact on the audience as well. “I wanted to create something for the audience to talk about in a positive setting,” he said. Jackson said he was satisfied with everything about the show besides the technical

difficulties they experienced during the performances. “The scenes were on point, but we could definitely improve on the technical stand point,” he said. Jackson said he was pleased with the performances of the models, but wished there had been more time in the Grand Ballroom for practice. “Considering the time restraints to rehearse, we actually did a good job,” he said.

Cross country teams finish in OVC top five By Blake Nash Staff Reporter | @DEN_Sports

Jason Howell | The Daily Eastern Ne ws

Senior forward Sherman Blanford directs a pass to an open teammate in Eastern’s exhibition game against Oakland City on Saturday at Lantz Arena. The Panthers beat the Mighty Oaks 73-64.

Eastern wins in exhibition Anthony Catezone Sports Editor | @AnthonyCatz The Eastern men’s basketball team beat Oakland City, a Division II school, 73-64 in an exhibition game Saturday in Lantz Arena. With a 54-40 lead with 11:51 in the second half, Eastern allowed Oakland City to score 13 unanswered points over four minutes, as the deficit was cut to 54-53 with eight minutes remaining. Eastern’s defense, however, held Oakland City to 2-of-9 shooting in the final eight minutes. The Panthers closed out the game on a 19-9 run. The Panthers never trailed during the game, jumping out to a 17-2 lead. But the Mighty Oaks would fight back to cut the game to a single-digit deficit. Eastern led 35-26 at halftime. Ten players on the Panthers roster scored in the win, four of which finished in double figures.


Junior forward Josh Piper led the Panthers with 15 points. He shot a team-high 5-of-9 overall and 2-of-4 from 3-point range. Senior forward Sherman Blanford followed with 12 points and a game-high 17 rebounds. Blanford also shot 5-of-9 for the game, as the Panthers out-rebounded the Mighty Oaks 43-30. UNLV transfer guard Reggie Smith scored 11 points for the Panthers, along with a game-high five assists. Sophomore guard Alex Austin rounded out the double-digit scoring with 10 off 4-of-7 shooting and 2-of-3 from 3-point range. Eastern also had 10 players play double-digit minutes, no Panther played more than 27 minutes in the game. Oakland City had three players of its own score in double digits. Guard Kendall Wittmer shot 5-for-8 overall and 4-for-4 from the free throw line for a game-high

18 points. Freshman guard Matt Lucas scored 15 points. Wittmer and Lucas combined to shoot 6-of-8 from 3-point range. Ryan Helfert added 10 points for the Mighty Oaks and a team-high seven rebounds. Eastern outshot Oakland City 41 percent to 37.3 but allowed the Mighty Oaks to shoot 9-of-16 from 3-point range. The Panthers, meanwhile, shot 6-of-21 from 3-point range. Eastern outscored Oakland City 28-10 in the paint, while forcing 14 turnovers, which turned it 17 points. Eastern also doubled Oakland City in second chance points 16-8. Eastern will open its regular season against Northwestern at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Evanston. Anthony Catezone can be reached at 581-2812 or


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Eastern coach Dino Babers said Garoppolo is not easily rattled and is able to perform when tough adjustments are made throughout a game. “We make aggressive adjustments, and sometimes they’re not the adjustments that we practiced all week,” Babers said. Babers said sometimes during a game he will make adjustments that are not practiced all week, but they do not faze Garoppolo. “(Garoppolo) is one of the best I have ever had of being able to take that information, digesting it and put


it on the football field without having practiced it,” he said. In the second half, Garoppolo completed 13-of-17 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown, with no turnovers, before being taken out of the game after Little ran in from 21 yards for a touchdown that extended Eastern’s lead to 56-14 with 9:51 left in the fourth quarter. Despite the two turnovers, Garoppolo threw 282 yards in the first half, which marked the ninth consecutive game he has thrown more than 200 yards in the opening half. The senior

was one yard short of throwing 400 yards for the fifth time this season. “These numbers are impressive to me,” Babers said. “I know how it is to have quarterbacks that barely gets 300 yards and you’re singing his praises. Jimmy Garoppolo is special. We have one home game left with him, two more away games and then whatever happens after. You need to come see him. You need to come see him.”

family, so it was pretty cool just going against her and it was kind of, I don’t know, not nervous. I just haven’t played against her in awhile,” she said. “We have different playing styles and it was kind of funny that she’s a defender and I’m offense, so it kind of worked out well.” She said her and her sister talk throughout the week, but Mary Kate was not going to give any secrets away about Edwardsville. “SIUE and us always play the opposites, so over the weekend, we’re always giving each other scouting reports on the other teams, which is nice, but I didn’t talk to her today,”

she said. “We’ve been talking back and forth this week about everything, but she didn’t really give much away.” She said that with having to play Edwardsville again, the team knows how to attack the Cougars on Thursday. “I think now we know who to look for and who to mark,” she said. “We’ve just got to keep fighting against them. They’re a physical team, and now we know that. We’ve just got to come out ready to play.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Greene will not be playing in any of the conference tournament, she said. Red-shirt sophomore forward Chris Reed saw a familiar face when she came into the match, having to guard her older sister Mary Kate, a senior defender for the Cougars. “I think the last time we played against each other was when we were really little,” she said. “We’ve always been on the same team, or she’s two years older, so she’s always been on a different team, so it’s really cool.” Chris Reed said it had been awhile since the two had played each other. “We were a pretty competitive

The Eastern men’s and women’s cross country teams competed in the Ohio Valley Conference Championships, hosted by Morehead State, as both teams brought home a top five finish. The women’s team, led by sophomore Victoria Quarton, finished in third place out of their 12 conference opponents. Quarton earned second team All-OVC honors with a 5k time of 18:32.51 as she placed 10th individually in the meet. Eastern Kentucky won the meet with a total of 29 points. Belmont followed Eastern Kentucky with 71 and Eastern with 100. Quarton was followed by Kelsey Hardimon who placed 19th with a time of 19:04.89, Julie James , who placed 21st with a time of 19:06.61, Ivy Handley, who placed 24th with a time of 19:10.98 and Emily Brelsfoard, who placed 26th with a time of 19:13.93. The men’s team placed fourth and was led by Charleston native Riley McInerney. McInerney finished 12th with a time of 25:26.79, and earned second team All-OVC honors. He w a s f o l l ow e d b y Pa b lo Ramirez who placed 16th with a time of 25:37.34, Mike Hesslau, who placed 25th with a time of 25:52.12, Paxson Menard, who placed 29th with a time of 26:04.99 and Danny Delaney

, who placed 30th with a time of 26:06.65. Eastern Kentucky also won the championship on the men’s side with a total of 16 points. Belmont (74 points) and host school Morehead State (81 points) rounded out the top three. This marked Eastern Kentucky’s eighth straight conference championship and 22nd overall for the men’s team. For the women’s team, it was the second straight championship and 27th overall. Eastern’s next meet will be on Friday, Nov. 15 at the NCAA Midwest Regional at Iowa State University. If the Panthers are to have any runners compete at the National Finals in Terre Haute, they will need to score well at Iowa State. There will be 13 different conferences competing at this meet including the Atlantic 10 Conference, Big 12 Conference, Big East Conference, Big Sky Conference, Big 10 Conference, Conference USA and the Southeastern Conference. The top two teams and top four individuals, not on an advancing team, will move on to the NCAA Championships. Additional teams and individuals will then be chosen through at at-large selection process following the regional competition. Blake Nash can be reached at 581-5712 or

Panther playoff hopes dashed versus Omaha By Michael Spencer City Editor | @tmskeeper The Eastern men’s soccer team was eliminated from contention for a spot in the Summit League postseason tournament Sunday, falling 3-0 to Omaha at Lakeside Field. The Mavericks’ freshman forward Christian Garcia led the way for Omaha, scoring the first goal of the game in the 26th minute and then grabbing another to cap off the match in the 84th minute. Omaha outshot the Panthers 24-16 during the full 90 minutes, pushing the envelope with quick counter-attacking soccer to open up the Eastern back line. Red-shirt freshman Ben Feltes got the nod from Eastern coach Adam Howarth to start in goal for the Panthers. Feles, an Iowa native, collected 10 saves on the day, nearly tying his previous single-game record of 11. Eastern finished conference play with a record of 1-4-1, the team’s fourth consecutive season with only a single victory in league play. Additionally, Eastern has not made the Summit League tournament since joining in 2011. Eastern’s lone senior Jake Plant was honored Sunday before the match. Plant transferred to Eastern after spending two years playing for junior college teams. Plant, hailing from Birmingham, now has only one match remaining in his collegiate career. He said that he felt the team missed an opportunity in the match with Omaha.

“I thought we were too slow starting, but we managed to get through to half time in a decent position but we just threw it away,” Plant said. He also said, reflecting on his time playing soccer in the United States, he now feels it is about his teammates that still have time left in their careers in Eastern’s final match with Bradley. “Like I’ve done every single game this year, I just want to be able to help my teammates get what they want to get out of it,” Plant said. “I’ve been in America for four years playing. I’ve had my time, and I want these boys to realize how quickly their time will go. If that means I can just help them win the game and make and score goals, then that’s what I’ll do. That’s what I’ll always try and do.” Howarth said it would be a struggle to get his players up for the game with Bradley after the Panthers’ performance Sunday. “It’s going to be tough, I’ll be honest,” Howarth said. “We’re going to try to do everything we can. I think for the players that have been on the fringe all season, it’s going to give them a great opportunity to see what they can do. We will see how they can play.” Eastern will cap off the season at home in the match with Bradley Tuesday at 2 p.m. on Lakeside Field. Michael Spencer can be reached at 581-2812 or

5 inducted at O’Brien By Aldo Soto Assistant Sports Editor | @AldoSoto21 Eastern added five new members to its Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday during halftime of the Panthers football game against Tennessee Tech. The 2013 Hall of Fame Class included Gaylord Burrows, Scott McGhee, Charlie Thomas, Bobbie Hilkie and Jack Payan. Burrows attended Eastern from 1969-73 and was a member of the men’s golf team. He was a two-time All-American, winning the NAIA National Championship in 1972. Burrows continued to play professionally on the Asian Tour and on the PGA Champions Senior Tour. McGhee played wide receiver for the Eastern football team from 197780 and was part of the 1980 Eastern team that made it to the NCAA Division II National Championship game. McGhee is ranked in Eastern’s all-time top-10 list in receiving touchdowns (27) and receiving yards (1,920). Thomas was a guard on Eastern’s men’s basketball team from 1975-78. He is ranked eighth in the school’s alltime scoring list with 1.452 points and is in the top-10 in single-season points with 573. In 2010, Thomas was named one of the 10 members of the Eastern Men’s Basketball All-Century team. Hilkie coached Eastern’s women’s basketball team from 1980-93, when she accumulated 234 wins and a .578 winning percentage. In 1981, she was nominated for the AIAW Coach of the Year Award, coaching the Panthers to a 25-10 record and an appearance in the AIAW Division II National Elite Eight. Hilkie led the Panthers to their only NCAA Tournament appearance in 1988, following a Gateway Athletic Conference Tournament title. Payan was inducted as a friend of athletics, following his long support of both the university and its Intercollegiate Athletic programs. Payan graduated from Eastern in 1952. During his time at Eastern, Payan competed both in wrestling and track. He has served on the University Foundation Board and has been named an Eastern Distinguished Alumnus.

Senior quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hands the ball off to red-shirt sophomore running back Shepard Little during Saturday’s game against Tennessee Tech at O’Brien Field. The Panthers won 56-21 to improve to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Eastern rolls through Tennessee Tech By Aldo Soto Assistant Sports Editor | @AldoSoto21 For quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the rest of the Eastern football team, the key to success this season has been predicated on their next play mentality. Against Tennessee Tech, Garoppolo fumbled once and threw an interception in the first half but finished the game with 399 passing yards and four touchdowns, completing 33-of50 pass attempts (66 percent). Eastern won its fifth straight Ohio Valley Conference game and remained atop the conference standings, defeating the Golden Eagles 56-21 Saturday at O’Brien Field. Garoppolo said they have to look to the next play after making a mistake. On the game’s first drive, the Panthers had a first down at the Golden Eagles’ 38-yard line after Garoppolo completed a pass to fellow senior Erik Lora, who was able to break away from Tennessee Tech defenders for a gain of 33 yards. After taking the snap from Nick

Borre, Garoppolo surveyed the field to find an open receiver, but before he could, Tennessee Tech safety Austin Tallant hit the quarterback’s arm, forcing a fumble. Jimmy Laughlin then recovered the football for the Golden Eagles. “You have to look at the next play,” Garoppolo said. “What can we improve? Whatever mistake we made, how do we fix that mistake to make it better and to be successful on the next series.” On the Panthers second possession, the Eastern offense responded with a 13-play, 81-yard scoring drive that lasted 2:40. Garoppolo stayed poised in the pocket, completing 4-of-5 passes for 56 yards, capped off by a fiveyard touchdown catch by Lora. Lora ran a fade pattern to the end

zone, running straight to the corner and then turning to catch the pass as two Golden Eagles were chasing after Lora, not knowing that the ball was in the air until they saw Lora jumping to grab the football. Lora came down with both feet in bounds for the first of his three receiving touchdowns. “We have a great quarterback who just puts the ball on the money, and that makes my job easier,” Lora said. Garoppolo and Lora would go on to connect for another touchdown as the first quarter approached to a close, making the Eastern lead 14-0. Lora would also score a punt return touchdown in the third quarter, which was his first at Eastern. Lora’s 80-yard return tied an Eastern record for the longest punt return touchdown.

Following two long touchdowns, the first coming on a Shepard Little 75-yard punt return for a touchdown and a 79-yard touchdown from Garoppolo to Keiondre Gober, the Panthers built a 28-0 lead with a little more than 11 minutes left to play in the first half. But then Garoppolo threw his eighth interception of the year with 9:31 left in the second quarter. “I saw the defender, but it was just a bad throw,” Garoppolo said. “It was one of those things that the outside receiver had a little comeback route and I had to put it over the top of the (defender), and I didn’t get enough on it.” Patrick Prewitt was in front of the Eastern receiver near the Panthers’ sideline and made a one-handed play on the ball, coming down with the interception for Tennessee Tech. Following Garoppolo’s second turnover of the half, Eastern punted on four straight possessions to close out the second quarter, but on the Panthers’ first drive of the second half , they bounced back just like they did after the first-quarter fumble.

Panthers fall to Cougars, secure fifth seed in tourney By Dominic Renzetti Managing Editor | @domrenzetti The Eastern women’s soccer team lost 2-1 Sunday at Lakeside Field to Southern Illinois-Edwardsville for what would be the final match of the regular season. Eastern, which entered the weekend tied for third place, dropped to fifth with the loss. The Panthers are now set for a rematch Thursday at 4 p.m. against the Cougars in Martin, Tenn. After a scoreless first half of play, the Cougars’ freshman forward Kayla Delgado found the back of the net in the 47th minute. Delgado had scored a team-high eight goals entering the weekend. Delgado also has three game-winning goals this season. The Cougars upped the lead to two in the 59th minute with a goal from Cassidy Sherman. Delgado was credited with the assist. Eastern finally got on the board in

the 77th minute with a goal from junior Meagan Radloff. With the score 2-1, Eastern scrambled to try and find an equalizer. Hannah Miller, who assisted on Radloff’s goal, had a chance toward the end of the match but sent the ball over the top of the net. The Panthers were unable to find the net again, giving them their third straight loss. “We need to come out and play hard on Thursday because we have conference,” Eastern defender Brenna Vogel, one of three seniors honored before the match, said. Vogel said the match was physical and that it is something she expects from here on out. “I think the rest of (the games) from here on out will be (physical) since everyone is trying to fight for a conference win,” she said. “We just need to posses the ball and play the way we know how to play and fight back on Thursday.”

Another senior, defender Caitlin Greene, was cleared to play in the senior day match. Greene had not played since Oct. 6 because of an injury. “It was just really exciting,” she said. “My career is kind of over, but it’s been so fun to be here, and it was just awesome to get maybe 10 minutes total, but it was still really awesome to get out there.” Greene said despite the team’s recent losses, Eastern still isn’t giving up heading into the tournament. “I think obviously we’ve learned the last three games that it’s been a little bit of a rough spell, but just to, like, never quit, and obviously every team is going to come out and play just as hard as SIUE, especially in conference tournament,” she said. “So, just to never stop working and always give 110 percent because, like me, you never know when your season could end.”
