Professor entertains on stage, in classroom By Parissa Boston Staff Reporter @DEN_News
He said he’s a small business owner that requires a lot of time and energy, but added suggestions for how to manage time and keep what is most important at the forefront. “The biggest advice I could give is to keep your priorities in line, and when and if things are getting over whelming take a look at what is the least important to you at the time and be ready to back off a bit and keep things doable, or everything will suffer,” Reible said. Reible said he is very impressed with Ingram and her ability to handle her position as an Eastern professor and member of Tequila Mockingbyrd. “Diana (Ingram) is always ready with music and new songs for us and I have no idea where she gets the time,” Reible said. “But I know how much she loves the music and yet I have employees that have had Diana in school and they all talk about how she makes the class interesting and fresh.” Ingram said being a communications studies professor has prepared her for talking to audiences. “As long as I practice and prepare before a show, just like I teach my students to do, things go well,” she said. Ingram said there is a lot of compromise among the group members, being in the band and being
She is a communication studies professor by day and a rock ‘n’ roller by night – mostly known for taking the stage at Jackson Avenue Coffee. Diana Ingram is the lead singer of the band originating in Charleston, Tequila Mockingbryd, which is a play on the book “To Kill a Mockingbird” – spelled like The Bryds group of the 1960s. Ingram plays rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Ingram started playing the guitar her sophomore year in college, but said she wishes she had started earlier. “I am not sure if a lot of students know I play,” Ingram said. Ingram said the group has been together about a year and a half now, and they only play what she calls “vintage rock ‘n’ roll, which are from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. “When music was still good,” Ingram said, smiling. The band consists of three members. She said they make money on "As long as I practice and prepare before a show, most of the gigs just like I teach my students to do, things go well." they play. “We only do a Diana Ingram, communication studies professor few for free anymore.

Police ID suspect in September hit and run Staff Report Charleston Police Department has identified a suspect in a hit and run accident that sent a pedestrian to the hospital last month. Several witnesses and video surveillance identified Austin D. Seaver, of Lombad, Ill. as the driver of a vehicle that struck a pedestrian crossing at 10 p.m. Sept. 11 on Lincoln Ave. The suspect then fled the scene of the accident. According to a press release from the Charleston Police Department, the victim was transported to Carle Hospital with “several injuries to his lower extremities,” and has since underwent two surgeries, with “the possibility of more to come.” Seaver, who turned himself after a warrant was issued for his arrest, is scheduled to be arraigned on the charge of leaving the scene of an accident, a Class 2 Felony in Illinois.

Aggravated Student Senate election packets are now available robbery reported By Jarad Jarmon Student Governance Editor @JJarmonReporter
Elections for Student Senate for Spring and Fall 2014 is drawing closer, and the packets for students interested in running are now available. They are available on the student government website and Facebook page. Hard copies are also available in the Student Activity Center in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. To become a candidate students must fill out an Intent to Run form, which will include basic information about the perspective candidate. They also must maintain a 2.5 GPA and be a current student at Eastern. They then must acquire 50 signatures from either undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled. Student Body President Kaylia Eskew said they check the E-numbers of all of the people who signed the petition to validate the candidate. Currently, many of the Student Senate members were appointed, which only grants them the position for one semester. Many are looking to be elected for next year. The completed packets and the candidate peti-
tion are due by 4 p.m. Nov. 6 in the Student Activity Center. Candidates will then be required to go to a meeting on Nov. 7, which will be an informational meeting about the rules while campaigning. Eskew said they are not allowed to place fliers in the residence hall floors as well as the dining halls. “Not everyone has access to the residence hall floors,” she said. Eskew added the dining halls are neutral zones for students to eat without being hassled. Student Activity Center is also a safe zone, and is off-limits for any campaigning. Elections will take place online from midnight Nov. 11 until 11:59 p.m. Nov. 12. Students will be sent an email, which will link to the site where they will vote. The unofficial results will be announced at the Student Senate meeting at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 in the Arcola-Tuscola Room in the Union. Grievances over any of those elected can then be issued but only three days following the unofficial election. The official results will be released at the Student Senate meeting at 7 p.m. Nov. 20 in ArcolaTuscola Room. Jarad Jarmon can be reached at 581-2812 or email@example.com.

Committee to decide room, board rates RHA, student senate members to hear housing proposals By Jarad Jarmon Student Governance Editor | @JJarmonReporter The Bond Revenue Committee will be deciding the room and board rates for the residence halls for the next year. The committee consists of three Residence Hall Association members including Kyle Anderson, a mathematics major, Jarrone Gaddis, a computer science major, and Jaime Escatel, a music major. There will also be two student government members, Allie Nemmer, a special education major, and Taylor Spoon-
holtz, an elementary education major, who will be a part of the committee to deliberate over room and board rates. Mark Hudson, the director of Housing and Dining and adviser of the committee, said in an email the committee would hear detailed explanations of how the housing and dining department works. From that information, the committee will decide what they believe the rates should be set at. Their recommendation will then go to President Bill Perry, Dan Nadler, the vice president of student affairs and the Board of Trustees. Hudson said in the past the committee has been responsible after hearing about the ins and outs of the budget. “It has been my experience that with all the info at hand they are very responsible about figuring out
what is in their best interest,” Hudson said. If they lower the rates, they will need to figure out which services need to be reduced. Hudson also said they will specifically be going over income and expenses, including plans for future projects and program enhancements. The Bond Revenue Committee, which has new members every year, has been deciding these rates for more than 30 years now. “Students should be the drivers as they are the one's both receiving the service and paying for it,” Hudson said. In the past, Bond Revenue Committee has been responsible for reviewing and approving the raised laundry washer prices this year from $1.25 to $1.75. They have also approved reno-

Festival, workshops to showcase films By Marcus Curtis Entertainment Editor | @DEN_News Members of the Arts and Humanities Department will be paying respect for documentary and independent films through hosting their ninth annual Embarras Valley Film Festival beginning Saturday. The Embarras Valley Film Festival will kick off with a stop-motion workshop at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Tarble Arts Center. The workshop is designed for children ages 10-14 who want to learn how to create films. Participants in the workshop will be supplied with a camera to record their stop motions, props to add creativity to their stop motion films, and laptops for the children to edit their stop motion films. Robin Murray, an English professor and one of the co-directors of the festival, said the workshop is
an opportunity for children in the Charleston area to expand on their understanding of film. “The stop-motion workshop provides an opportunity for area elementary and middle school students to learn more about film and filmmaking,” she said. There will also be another stopmotion workshop at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Tarble Arts Center. This will be the final day of the film festival. Like the previous workshop, it is also open to middle school and elementary school students, however, they must contact the Tarble Arts Center first. The film festival festivities will continue at 3:30p.m. Nov. 7 with the screening of two independent documentary films based in Southern Illinois: “Between Two Rivers,” by Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan, and “778 Bullets” by Angela Aguayo. “Between Two Rivers” expands
on the social and economic troubles of Cairo, a historic town in southern Illinois. “778 Bullets” is a documentary film that explores the incident in 1970 where police officers fired 778 shot inside an off-campus home in Carbondale, where alleged Black Panther Party members were believed to be residing. After “Between Two Rivers” and “778 Bullets,” the film screenings will continue with the presentation of two more films at 7 p.m. in the Doudna Fine Arts Center. The first film screening will be the presentation of Cameron Craig’s sequel to “Expedition Nature’s Realm” series, “The Anthropocene Era.” Craig, a geographer and climatologist at Eastern, will have his film focus on the coexistence of humanity and nature. Along with Craig’s film, several other Eastern professors will also be screening their films. The night will conclude with the

vation plans, which include all the room renovations as well as the major bathroom work throughout the residence halls. Other than being on campus, these committee members did not need any business background or mathematical prowess to be a member. Hudson said flexibility and patience are key to becoming a part of the committee. It takes a while to get through the info and it can be a challenge to work around everyone's busy schedules, Hudson said. Hudson said they plan to finish meeting by the end of next week. The room and board rates recommendations are expected to be sent to Board of Trustees on Nov. 15.

screening of “Walls of Sound: A Look Inside the House of Records,” by David Gracon, a communication studies professor. Gracon’s film is about an independent record store in Eugene, Ore. Gary Fritz, a biology professor, will also present his award-winning film, “Piedra Roja” on Nov. 8 in the Doudna Fine Arts Center. “Piedra Roja” is a documentary about the 1970s Red Rock Music festival in Chile. Fritz’s film won top honors at the In-Edit International and Musical Festival in Chile in 2012. The film festival will consist of many more films and panel discussions. All of the activities are free and will take place Nov. 2 and Nov. 7-9. Marcus Curtis can be reached at 581-2812 or email@example.com.

Imaging system questions Dates for GED to be answered at meeting tests announced
Eastern’s Faculty Senate will hear a special presentation regarding the university’s decision to purchase a $420,000 imaging system at their meeting Tuesday. Bill Weber, the vice president of business affairs, will meet with the senate to answer ongoing questions regarding the purchase. The system, which was approved by the university’s Board of Trustees at their meeting in September, would create an online database of documents for administrative use, representing a large step in the university’s initiative to eradicate the use of tangible paper documents.
Paul McCann, the director of business services and the university’s treasurer, said the move is a matter of practicality, stating the current system necessitates an inefficient usage of Eastern’s paper, time and storage. However, Grant Sterling, the chairman of Faculty Senate and a philosophy professor, said before the senate’s last meeting some faculty members had expressed concerns over the move to a primarily electronic database, citing potential breaches of security and privacy concerns. As a response, he said he would request that an administrative official answers questions in front of the senate.

The senate will also decide how to fill a vacancy on the University Personnel Committee (UPC). Spots on multiple faculty committees were left open this year. As a response, the senate had special elections in early October, though they were unable to fill the UPC position. Christopher Wixson, the chairman of the UPC, said in a memo to the senate that filling the position was a necessity, citing the importance of “diverse voices” and requesting a special appeal from the senate. Faculty senate will meet at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the conference room at Booth Library.
Examination dates for general education diplomas have been announced for individuals residing in Clark, Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Moultrie and Shelby counties. According to a press release provided by Bobbi Mattingly, the regional superintendent of schools, the first exams will be at 7:30 a.m. on November 9 at Lake Land College’s Eastern Region Center. The examination serves as an equivalency test for a high school diploma, and will cost $50, to be paid at the time of registration. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age, and 17 year olds must provide proof of a
drop date from their high school. Applications must be completed at the Regional Office of Education, though the number of applicants may be limited due to space constraints. According to the press release, starting in 2014, a new GED test will be issued, as the current version will expire at the end of this year. Scores will also expire if the test is not finished and all sections are passed by that date. Charleston residents can apply for the test at 730 Seventh Street, Monday through Friday. For more information, call the Charleston Regional Office of Education at 348-0151.

Be respectful, remember we are here for school I would like to take this time to apologize to everyone I encounter in the next week; I’m sorry I’m cranky. It is not that I enjoy being grumpy, but really I’m just really stressed out and trying to focus. And with the focus comes a bit of grump. Once this week is over I will be one step closer to the end of the semester and one step closer to my dream of graduate school. It seems that nearly all of my projects, papers and tests, all of which are worth significant percentages of my grades are due this week. And to cap it all off I am taking the GRE, the Graduate Record Examination, on Friday. Unfortunately, it, along with good grades and experience are a part of my admission requirements for graduate school. Yes dear readers, I do plan on going to more school when I am done here. Anyway there really is a point to this column besides me whining about how stressed out I am. This weekend as I was working my butt off, I was surprised how loud I found my classmates. I’m not just talking the residence halls, but the dining halls, and even the library. People, it is called volume control. When I’m eating my breakfast at 9 a.m., I do not need to
Amy Wywialowski hear every detail of your weekend even though you are sitting five tables away. If my door is shut and my headphones are in, I should not be able to hear you and your friends getting ready to go out even though it is not quiet hours. I’m not against going out and having fun; I too enjoy a night out. I’m saying be respectful. To those who are new to campus, I know I sound like a complete and utter buzz kill, a grumpy old person who doesn’t get it. That’s not exactly true. I too am 21 and wish all I had to be focused on right now was having fun. Those who have been here before recognize this time well, we have reached the beginning of the end of the semester.
For all of us they will be the toughest weeks of the semester where we make the final pushes for the grades we want, and try not to get distracted by the allure of sitting around on Thanksgiving Break. For those of us graduating in either December or May, on top making the most of our last few weeks or months (I graduate in May) with our friends, looking for jobs, and working on applying for graduate school. It’s hard and really it is not a lot of fun. But remember the words on the gates of Old Main. Eastern Illinois University—university being the key word there. We are here to go to school, and academics come first. So as we push into the hardest weeks of the semester, take it down a notch and show a bit of compassion to your super stressed out classmates, who don’t have time to play. Remember, if they could they’d be out there too, but for now I’m sorry I’m cranky, but I just have to get it done. Next week, I promise I’ll be rocking a smile again.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “I utilize my research skills all the time in doing research for music for the band,” she said. Ingram said she loves doing both and there is an audience in both of them. “Several of our faculty supports the band, only some of the students really seem interested,” Ingram said. She said she hopes it never comes to a decision of one over the other, which would be unfortunate. “I like doing both. However teaching is my career. The music is my hobby,” Ingram said. Ingram said the group performed for a Special Olympics event in late October at the Eagles Club in Mattoon, and said it was a great event to attend. Reible said functions like the Special Olympics dinner and other shows that benefit the community are very special to everyone in Tequila Mockingbyrd. “We spend a lot of time working to offer a quality show so that anyone who is there can travel back in time a bit and gain energy from the memories that music can bring forth,” Reible said. “It is truly our honor to be asked to be part of these kinds of events.” Parissa Boston can be reached at 581-2812 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hockey club wins after 9-game losing streak Panthers beat goal record this season By Dominic Renzetti Managing Editor @domrenzetti
Western is still fighting to defend its 2011 and 2012 postseason tournament victories. But, after losses at the hands of Oral Roberts and Omaha and with a match still to come with league-leading Denver, the Leathernecks need to collect the majority of the points out of the next two games in order to even contend for a tournament berth. Western is on six points, placing the team within striking distance of Eastern and Omaha. IUPUI are third in the league. The team was winless coming into the league season but managed to scrape wins against Omaha and Fort Wayne while picking up a draw with Eastern. The team had last weekend off to prepare for the final portion of the regular season. With two matches to go on the Jaguar’s conference schedule, the team can lock up a spot in the tournament with a win and a draw against Western and Oral Roberts, respectively. Oral Roberts is second in the table with nine points and has only lost once in conference play in a match with Eastern. After a tepid start to the campaign, the Golden Eagles found their stride a month into the season and have only lost twice the last nine matches.
The Eastern hockey club snapped a ninegame losing streak during the weekend, picking up a win in the second game of its series against Northern Illinois. In Eastern’s first game Friday in Kankakee, the Panthers found themselves down early, but senior Connor Cox scored on a power play halfway through the first to tie it, but it would be the only goal scored all game. Northern would rally back to score seven goals to beat the Panthers 8-1. In the second game, the Panthers and Huskies were tied 3-3 in the third period. Spencer Peyton, who scored the team’s first goal, scored the go ahead goal with 16:40 to go in the game for Eastern. Three minutes later, Eastern freshman Brendan Terbrock added another to make it 5-3. The Panthers kept rolling late in the game, as senior Tim Shannon scored off an assist from Zach Yurchak with just a little more than four minutes to play in the game. Yurchak had scored earlier in the game in the second period, along with sophomore Glenn Oskvarek. Northern added another two goals with under two minutes to play to bring the score to 6-5, but it was not enough, and the Panthers secured the win. With the win, the Panthers are now 2-9 on the season. The win over Northern was the first win for the Panthers since the Sept. 13 season opener against Bradley. The six goals scored by the Panthers are the most the team has scored since the season opener, when it scored five. The Panthers will hit the road for their next series, traveling to Kentucky to take on Louisville. The teams will play at 10 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Saturday at the Iceland Sports Complex in Louisville, Ky. The Cardinals are coming off two straight losses against Davenport.

Jake Plant, a senior defender/midfielder, passes against Oral Roberts Sunday on Lakeside Field. The Panthers won 2-1. The team will play against the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday at 7p.m.
Several Summit League teams searching for postseason spots By Michael Spencer Staff Reporter @tmskeeper Week-five was a return to form for most teams in the Summit League while Eastern faces a must-win scenario, after a fourth week of Summit League action that shook up the standings and saw top teams drop points in crucial matches. Denver stuck with its winning ways as the Pioneers rolled past Eastern with a 2-0 victory in Colorado. With two games remaining on the conference schedule, Denver is already a lock for the postseason tournament while the rest of the teams are searching for a tournament spot in the closing days of the regular season. Denver leads the league with 12 points with two matches remaining. Eastern is two points back of Western Illinois, the team that occupies the last tournament spot. However, the Leathernecks have one match in hand on the Panthers who will need Western to drop points in each of its next two matches. Eastern will see Omaha at Lakeside Field Sunday in the biggest fixture of the season. If the Panthers lose, the team will be mathematically eliminated from the postseason picture.
Head coach Adam Howarth emphasized the importance of the match after practice Monday. “It’s massive,” Howarth said. “If we don’t win that game then we have no chance of getting in so we have to win that game.” Still, the Panthers need help to make the four-team tournament but Howarth said he knows that his team still has to take care of the match Sunday. “At least the ball is in our court, a little bit,” Howarth said. “We may have to depend on what happens in some of the other games but if we don’t win it doesn’t matter.” At the bottom of the league is Fort Wayne, a team that has managed a single victory in conference play against Eastern. The Mastodons have not been able to find the back of the net very often this season, having only scored more than one goal on a single occasion against Valpraiso. Omaha is languishing at the sixth place in of the Summit League standings in the Maverick’s second season in the conference. However, Omaha has a match in hand on Eastern, the team that leads the Mavericks by a single point. If Omaha were to win out, the team could overtake the Panthers but to do so will require a victory over Eastern in Saturday’s fixture at Lakeside Field. After two years of Summit league supremacy,
Tournament hopes still exist for some teams in OVC By Dominic Renzetti Managing Editor @domrenzetti The final matches of the Ohio Valley Conference women’s soccer season will get underway this weekend and a number of teams are fighting for spots in the tournament. Tennessee-Martin is currently in first place with 21 points, followed by Southeast Missouri with 20 points. The Skyhawks and the Redhawks will face each other this weekend in Martin, Tenn., in what will decide the location of the OVC tournament. The top team at the end of the regular season hosts the tournament, with the next five teams also making it in. If Tennessee-Martin wins or ties, it will host the tournament. If Southeast Missouri wins, it will host. Morehead State and Eastern each currently have 18 points, tied for third. Both are guaranteed spots in the tournament. If Eastern and Morehead State both end up with the same amount of points at the end of the season, then Eastern will have the higher seed because of its head-to-head
win over the Eagles on Oct. 4 at Lakeside Field. Eastern takes on Southern Illinois-Edwardsville at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Lakeside Field. Morehead State takes on Eastern Kentucky Friday in Morehead, Ky. If Eastern ends up tied with Southeast Missouri (via an Eastern win and Southeast Missouri draw), Southeast Missouri would still get the No. 2 seed because of its head-to-head win over the Panthers last Sunday. Edwardsville and Austin Peay both have 16 points. Austin Peay takes on Murray State Sunday in Murray, Ky. Both could secure spots with wins. Belmont and Eastern Kentucky each have 13 points. Belmont plays Tennessee Tech Friday in Nashville, Tenn. Eastern Kentucky takes on Morehead State Friday on the road. Both need to win in order to have a shot at the tournament. Murray State (six points), Tennessee Tech (four points) and Jacksonville State (one point) are all out of contention for the tournament. The OVC tournament will start Nov. 7 and end on Nov. 10.

Garoppolo, LePak collect weekly awards By Aldo Soto Assistant Sports Editor @AldoSoto21 E a s t e r n q u a r t e r b a c k Ji m m y Garoppolo was honored with his sixth Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week award and second in a row, following the Panthers’ 34-16 win over Tennessee State on Saturday. Garoppolo led Eastern’s offense against the second best defense in the FCS entering the game, throwing four touchdowns and 410 yards. The senior threw 272 yards in the first half, the eighth straight game he has thrown at least 200 yards in the opening half. Garoppolo also became the OVC’s single-season passing touchdown all-time leader, throwing his 35th touchdown in the fourth quarter, passing Tony Romo’s record of 34. Eastern still has four regularseason games remaining. Garoppolo’s teammate and Baylor transfer Jeff LePak caught four passes and two touchdowns, gaining 112 yards against Tennessee State, which allowed 154.1 passing yards on average heading into the OVC showdown in Nashville, Tenn. LePak tripled his touchdown total on the season after trips to end zone from 34 and 25 yards, bringing his season mark to three. The red-shirt junior collected his first weekly award, being named the OVC Newcomer of the week. FCS rankings Eastern remained as the No. 2 ranked team in the FCS Coaches poll and the Sports Network top25, following its win against No. 21 Tennessee State, which moved the Panthers into first place in the OVC with a 7-1 overall record and 4-0 in conference play. North Dakota State is still No. 1 after the Bison defeated Indiana State 56-10 in Terre Haute, Ind. The Bison built a big lead in the first half scoring seven touchdowns against Indiana State. North Dakota State would cruise to a 46-point victory shutting out the Sycamores in the second half. Bison quarterback Brock Jensen

Senior quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, prepares to pass against Southeast Missouri at O’Brien Stadium during the Eastern homecoming game on Oct. 19. The Panthers won 55-33. Eastern will take on Tennesse Tech. Saturday at noon at O’Brien Field.
Around the OVC Tennessee State dropped to second in the OVC after its loss to Eastern and joined Eastern Kentucky and Murray State in the conference that have one loss in league play. The Colonels won their third
consecutive OVC game, beating Southeast Missouri 31-7 in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Eastern Kentucky running back J.J. Jude led the Colonels with 114 rushing yards as his team scored the game’s first 24 points. Jude scored the first touchdown of the game on a 28-yard run up the middle, three minutes after kickoff. Southeast Missouri fell to 1-4 in the OVC and 1-7 overall, placing them seventh in the conference. Jacksonville State evened its conference record at 2-2 with a 3414 win against Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, Tenn. The Gamecocks’ defense allowed 280 yards, making it the third straight meeting that Jacksonville State has given up less than 300 yards to the Golden Eagles. DaMarcus James had 126 rushing yards for the Gamecocks and
our offense,” Eastern coach Kate Price said in a press release. “Stephanie and Amy (Martin) have been very offensive. They are doing a great job of finding ways to score and throwing themselves into the offense.” Bradbury, meanwhile, dished out 101 assists over the Panthers’ two matches this weekend. She registered two double-double performances for her 16th and 17th career double-doubles, respectively. The sophomore from Decatur, Ind., recorded 47 assists and a game-high 20 digs in the win over Murray State and 54 assists and 12 digs in the win over Austin Peay. Price said Bradbury did a great job seeing the block in both wins for the Panthers, which led to her sixth Setter of the Week honor of her career. Bradbury was also nominated for Defensive Player of the Week as she accumulated 32 digs and two blocks. It would have been her first ever defensive award. Southern Illinois-Edwardsville libero Chelsea Colclasure, also a Decatur native, won Defensive Player of the Week.
She recorded 6.17 digs per set in the Cougars’ two matches last week. She registered 20 digs in the three-set win over Austin Peay and followed with 17 digs in the three-set loss to Murray State. Colclasure leads the OVC with 5.44 digs per set this season. Perfect home record Since beating Austin Peay on Saturday, the Eastern volleyball team is the only remaining team in the Ohio Valley Conference with an undefeated record at home. The Panthers, who are 4-0 at home this season, play their next four games at home against, Tennessee-Martin, Southeast Missouri, Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech. The four-set win over the Lady Govs (25-20, 25-27, 25-22, 25-19) also allowed the Panthers to jump them for first place in the west division and second place in the OVC overall. “It’s always great to be in the position we are in, but the season isn’t over yet and we need to finish out the season,” Price said. “We have done a
completed 13-of-14 passes for 186 yards and four touchdowns. North Dakota State also had a big day in special teams, returning two punts and one kickoff for touchdowns. Ryan Smith had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that was then followed by 43 and 68-yard punt returns for touchdowns by Christian Dudzik. North Dakota State improved to 8-0 and 5-0 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, extending its winning streak to 17, dating back to last season.
scored a touchdown, while his quarterback Kyle West threw two touchdowns. West entered the game in the second quarter, replacing starter Eli Jenkins, who was injured. West was 11-of-17 for 138 yards and did not throw an interception to close out the game. Cornerback Rashod Byers had six tackles and three pass breakups for the Jacksonville State defense that held Tennessee Tech to 99 passing yards. Byers won OVC Defensive Player of the Week. The Golden Eagles dropped their fifth straight OVC game this season and fell to 3-6 on the season, pitting them to last place in the conference. Tennessee-Martin handed Austin Peay its eighth loss of the season and fourth in the OVC, beating the Governors 38-14 in Clarks-
ville, Tenn. The Skyhawks moved up 3-2 in the OVC and 5-3 overall after redshirt sophomore quarterback Jarod Neal threw two touchdowns for Tennessee-Martin. Senior D.J. McNeil also scored a rushing touchdown for the Skyhawks. He ran the ball 17 times for 114 yards. Jeremy Butler led Tennessee-Martin with 171 receiving yards on 11 catches, grabbing both of Neal’s touchdowns. The Governors are in eighth place in the OVC, having one less conference loss than Tennessee Tech. Austin Peay is 0-8, making it back-to-back seasons the Governors have lost their first eight games.

Arnold, Bradbury earn conference honors By Anthony Catezone Sports Editor @AnthonyCatz Two members of the Eastern volleyball team won Ohio Valley Conference weekly awards in middle hitter Stephanie Arnold and setter Marah Bradbury. Arnold earned co-Offensive Player of the Week and Bradbury received Setter of the Week for the fourth time this season. Arnold, who has won the award three times in her career, led the Panthers with 34 total points while recording a .471 attack for the weekend. She registered a career-high .810 hit percentage, as Eastern swept Murray State on the road. The Panthers out-hit the Racers .346-to-.171. The red-shirt senior notched 17 kills in the win off 21 attempts without a single error. She was one kill shy of tying her career high. Arnold finished the week with 28 kills and 10 blocks. Her .363 hit percentage leads the OVC this season. “I think our defense and passing has allowed our middles to be a big part of
