Heat waves increasing in frequency, intensity By Meghana Rachamadugu megracha@iu.edu

Temperatures are expected to continue to reach 90 degrees and higher later this week in Bloomington and across Indiana. Various studies and research show this will become a more common occurrence, with stronger health repercussions over time. According to the Environmental Resilience Institute’s research, average temperatures in Indiana will increase by five to six degrees Fahrenheit by 2050. Similarly, the ERI’s research concluded that, between 2004 and 2018, there was an average of 702 annual deaths caused by extreme heat in the United States alone. The ERI said that rising temperatures mean a more significant number of fatalities across numerous demographics and repeated frequency, duration and intensity of heat waves across the Midwest. People who work outside or who are lower-income or members of the unhoused community are most vulnerable to extreme heat, according to researchers. The ERI also mentioned that younger and older people are at risk alongside those with sensitive health conditions. In preparation for heat waves, the institute suggested local governments and com-

Indiana men’s basketball officially announced its incoming freshman class on June 9 in a new number reveal video. The roster includes four scholarship players — five-star recruit Malik Reneau and four-star recruits Jalen Hood-Schifino, Kaleb Banks and CJ Gunn. Reneau, Hood-Schifino and Banks ended the year in the 2022 ESPN 100 with rankings of 22, 24 and 78, respectively. Reneau is the No. 5 center, Hood-Schifino the No. 4 point guard and Banks the No. 11 power forward in the 2022 class. Reneau and Hood-Schi-

fino were high school teammates at Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida. Hood-Schifino signed with the Hoosiers in August 2021, but Reneau was committed to the University of Florida for the majority of the school year. Reneau later decommitted from the Gators, took an official visit to Bloomington and announced his commitment to the Hoosiers on April 18. Reneau and Hood-Schifino were both named to the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic team, where they competed against and alongside the nation’s top recruits in a game in mid-April. They join former Hoosier Romeo Langford, current senior

Trayce Jackson-Davis and sophomore Tamar Bates as recent IU Jordan Brand Classic honorees. Banks attended Fayette County High School in Fayetteville, Georgia and received offers from many southern schools. He was a 2,000-point scorer in high school and was named the Georgia Class 4A Player of the year. He signed with the Hoosiers in July before his senior year. Gunn is an Indiananative, attending Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis. He was a finalist for Indiana Mr. Basketball and was recently named MVP of the Indiana-Kentucky AllStars series. He was the first

in his class to commit to Indiana, signing with the Hoosiers on February 7, 2021. Hood-Schifino is a strong candidate to start during the upcoming season and might help senior Xavier Johnson handle some of the point guard responsibilities. His shooting will likely be able to make up for the loss of former starter Parker Stewart, who transferred to the University of Tennessee at Martin after the conclusion of the 2021-2022 season. HoodSchifino has experience playing the primary 2-guard and secondary ball-handler positions and possesses the ability to take on a large ofSEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 4

Restorative justice used in Booker case

All charges have been dismissed in the case of a racist incident at Lake Monroe in 2020 involving Vauhxx Booker, Sean Purdy and Jerry Cox, according to a case file released May 18. Special Prosecuting Attorney Sonia Leerkamp dropped the charges after all individuals agreed to resolve the case using restorative justice. Restorative justice is a

process of acknowledging and repairing harm done by creating a dialogue and taking steps toward a resolution, the Center for Community Justice wrote in the case file. This is the first time a criminal case has used restorative justice in Indiana. Leerkamp told the Indiana Daily Student that Purdy and Cox’s attorneys suggested restorative justice as a way to resolve the case. Neither Purdy, Cox nor

IU law student forms committee for city council

Booker could be reached by the IDS for comment. Restorative justice focuses on accountability and healing rather than punishment, the case file said. For the process to be successful, participants must take responsibility for harm done and create a plan to make things right. Typically, those involved participate in faceto-face conferences led by a neutral facilitator to discuss the issue.

A group meeting did not happen in Booker’s case, Leerkamp said, because one individual resisted the idea. She did not share who resisted, but said Purdy and Cox expressed that they learned and took responsibility. Leerkamp said jail time and other traditional forms of punishment aren’t always conducive to true learning, and that jury trials can be more destructive than con-

structive. She said Booker, Purdy and Cox were seeking a resolution other than going to court. “A lot of it has to do with learning how to communicate without getting angry, without having to be macho about something,” she said. “It’s not a win or lose environment. It’s more of a learning environment.” Restorative justice has risen in popularity as an alternative to prosecution and incarceration. While this is the first time restorative justice has been used for a criminal case in Indiana, it has previously been used as a form of mediation in schools and juvenile cases across the country. To complete the restorative justice process, each person was required to write a summary of their experience, included in the case file. Sean Purdy wrote that while he’d previously viewed the Confederate flag — which was printed on a hat he was wearing at the time of the confrontation — as a symbol of the American south, he now understands the flag is a racially charged symbol. Cox wrote in his summary that, although he initially had doubts about restorative justice, it helped him better understand himself and others. He said he lashed out at Booker due to anger, but has since learned to be more aware of his words and actions. Booker wrote that shame and punishment are not the most effective tools for changing behaviors, and that restorative justice helps

to address wrongdoings in a corrective way. He said restorative justice is about preserving the dignity and sanctity of life. Cymone Fuller, Director of the Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice, said that restorative justice focuses on telling the truth about what happened. Restorative justice, she said, offers the harmed person more agency. “For a person harmed, they are in the driver’s seat of dictating what it is that happened to them, and what they need as a result of that,” Fuller said. “And it doesn’t bring in the thirdparty interests of the prosecutor or the state that sometimes go against what a survivor wants, what they need.” People who have been harmed in a situation often have questions about why they were targeted, she said, which aren’t easily answered in the criminal justice system. Meanwhile, restorative justice provides a safe space to ask and answer questions. Fuller said society often confuses punishment and accountability. While punishment comes from feelings of shame and blame, she said, accountability is an opportunity to identify where an action is misaligned with someone’s true values. “I think accountability is actually an invitation to own something you’ve done and to make it right,” Fuller said. “There’s no shame in an opportunity for a reassertion of who you are or who you want to be.”

Trustees approve $4 billion budget By Marissa Meador

marnmead@iu.edu | @marissa_meador

The Board of Trustees met at IU Northwest June 16 and 17 to approve a $4 billion operating budget and several personnel appointments. The meeting occurred a day after faculty sent a letter urging trustees to reverse their earlier decision and recognize the graduate worker union. The newly approved budget will include an average 3.5% increase for all IU employees next year. Record en-

rollment at IU Bloomington and an increase in state funds for IUPUI led to a general fund growth of $58 million, but the budget included a $70 million reduction to account for an increase in operating expenses. The board approved Chief Human Resources Officer Todd Richardson, Vice President for Student Success Julie Payne-Kirchmeier, Dean of Jacobs School of Music Abra K. Bush and Dean of the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering

Joanna Mirecki Millunchick. Cathy Langham, Governor Eric Holcomb’s latest appointment to the board, was sworn in as a trustee at the meeting. The board did not discuss graduate workers or the faculty vote, according to the meeting agenda and recap. Another topic of discussion involved recommendations from IU’s Student Mental Health Initiative task forces. The task force plans to educate students, faculty and staff on mental health and

expand the number of mental health professionals at IU, among other items that they hope to implement by fall. IU will also repair facilities across its campuses with money from state appropriations and student fees. This includes phase five of a plan to reduce deferred maintenance at regional campuses, which involves work on seven buildings across five campuses. The next Board of Trustees meeting will be on August 11 and 12 in Bloomington.

IU law student Andrew Guenther filed paperwork to form an exploratory committee to run for an at-large seat on the Bloomington City Council in 2023. Guenther holds a bachelor’s degree in public affairs from IU and is the former chair of the city’s environmental commission. By Marissa Meador

marnmead@iu.edu | @marissa_meador

Indiana law school student Andrew Guenther filed paperwork last week to form an exploratory committee to run for an at-large seat on the city council in 2023. Guenther holds a bachelor’s degree in public affairs from IU and is the former chair of the city’s environmental commission. He has also served on Monroe County’s environmental commission and Bloomington’s board of housing quality appeals. Guenther ran for District 2 of the city council in 2019 as a Republican but lost to Democrat Sue Sgambelluri. Guenther announced he

was no longer a member of the Republican Party January 2021, and is considering running as an independent instead. No independent candidate has ever served on the Bloomington city council. When voters select atlarge council members, they choose up to three out of the list of candidates running. The current at-large council members are Susan Sandberg, Jim Sims and Matt Flaherty. Guenther is the third person to formally express interest in running during the 2023 municipal elections. Kerry Thomson and city council president Susan Sandberg have each formed committees for mayoral runs in the past few weeks.

Scientists discover endangered species By Marissa Meador

marnmead@iu.edu | @marissa_meador

Scientists have discovered new species at the Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve, a Bloomington wetland owned by the conservation nonprofit Sycamore Land Trust, while surveying the land to learn more about its biodiversity, according to a press release. Each year, the Indiana Academy of Science selects one protected property in Indiana where they

conduct an intensive biological survey to identify and preserve important species of plants, animals and insects. This year, 70 scientists affiliated with the academy worked with the Sycamore Land Trust to study Beanblossom. Volunteers discovered the zigzag iris, which had not been previously documented at the preserve, and the endangered Kirtland’s snake, which occupies moist meadows and prairies. John Lawrence, execu-

tive director of the Sycamore Land Trust, said in the release that finding the snake at the preserve opened the door for further study on what habitats can best protect the creature. Paul Doss, former president of the Indiana Academy of Science, said in the release that biodiversity is declining locally and nationwide. Biodiversity loss can lead to species extinction, interrupted food production, increased crop-eating

pests and less CO2 absorption. Additionally, the likelihood of future pandemics increases as biodiversity decreases. Research suggests animals such as bats and rats, which are more likely to host pathogens that can jump to humans, tend to survive more often. The Indiana Academy of Science plans to return to Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve in 10 years to see how results have changed over time.

CARTER’S COLUMN

We need to start taking climate anxiety seriously Carter DeJong (he/him) is a secular humanist studying journalism at IU.

Earlier this year, climate activist Wynn Bruce died after setting himself on fire outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. He committed this act of self-immolation to bring attention to the reality of the climate crisis. His act symbolizes the massive loss of life which will occur if this existential threat is not avoided. People should not have to suffer because governments and corporations refuse to take the climate crisis seriously. There are ways people can make a difference. The science of climate change is simple; burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, which traps heat on Earth, which in turn leads to increased temperatures and higher sea levels. These effects will cause billions of deaths and climate refugees. The people who live in the areas that will be most affected by this are at the highest risk for experiencing climate anxiety. Climate anxiety is characterized by feelings of existential hopelessness. Those who experience it may fear that they will never have a future, or that there is no hope for the effects of climate change to ever be reversed.

IDS FILE PHOTO BY ETHAN MOORE

Then-junior George Schafer listens to a speaker during Students for a New Green World’s protest for climate action March 4, 2022, in front of the Sample Gates.

Climate anxiety is different from mental illnesses because it is a reaction to a scientific reality. Adults experience climate change or “eco-anxiety” at a rate of 68%, according to a study by the American Psychological Association. The same study

said 56% of U.S. adults believe that climate change is the most important issue society is facing. Levels of climate anxiety will only increase as the effects of climate change increase. The threat of severe droughts, storms and rising

sea levels will directly affect the mental and physical health of billions in the next hundred years. There are some effective ways of dealing with climate anxiety that do not include ignoring its scientific reality. One can take steps to limit

the effect they have on the environment; for example, riding a bike or carpooling will limit the amount of carbon in the air. However, there is only so much that an individual can do to stop the worst effects of climate change. Fossil fuel

producers and large manufacturing companies are the most egregious emitters of carbon into the atmosphere. If someone you know is struggling with climate anxiety, it is important to support any changes they want to make to minimize their effect on the environment. Telling someone that their feelings are irrational or unwarranted will just compound their anxiety. Another effective way to combat climate anxiety is to educate yourself about it. The science is remarkably easy to understand. Being able to effectively explain to others the reality of climate change will improve the feelings of hopelessness that come with climate anxiety. Activism is important. By taking part in protests against activities and legislation allowing companies to destroy the environment, those struggling with climate anxiety can truly make a difference. They can even organize their own protests in their area. There is evidence that these protests have been effective in stopping new fossil fuel projects. There are a handful of organizations in Bloomington that people can get involved with, such as Sunrise and Students for a New Green World. cadejong@iu.edu

SEAN’S SYNOPSIS

You need to learn how to be alone with yourself Sean Gilley (he/him) is a senior studying political science and economics with a certificate in informatics at IU.

Many people don’t enjoy being alone, but why is that? People often equate being alone with being lonely, but these aren’t the same, or at least they don’t have to be. I thought they had to be the same thing for a long time, even going as far as spending time around people who I didn’t care for just to escape the feelings of being alone. I’ve since come to realize the time I spend by myself is valuable and crucial to my day-to-day life. Whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert, you should value the time with yourself. Use it to decompress, to evaluate your priorities and to sort through your thoughts, even the uncomfortable ones. I realized this during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown where the only interaction I had with my friends and family was through a screen. It took awhile to adjust, but it made me realize I needed this time to deal with thoughts, feelings and memories that I would’ve rather ignored. It

also made me value the time I spent with the people I enjoyed more. This is not to say it wasn’t a difficult process, because it very much was. For most of the pandemic, I felt lost, not sure what the future looked like. But after a couple months, these feelings subsided — I felt less like a prisoner in my head and I became more in touch with myself. This alone time made me realize my life is no longer dictated by my parents or anyone else but me: I create the life I want. I started reading and skateboarding more and overall started taking better care of myself. I even journal now to help organize my thoughts and emotions. People are often stigmatized for being alone, especially when in public. Now most people think it’s odd to see anyone sitting and eating at restaurants, at bars or just spending time by themselves in public. And if they are, they’re either on a phone, laptop or some other device, hoping not to be looked down upon. The negative effect of social media was a huge real-

ization to me. The more time I spent on social media the more I felt separated from everyone else. Decades ago, people didn’t have the capability of being in touch with anyone and everyone they know for every minute of the day. They valued the time spent with others because they weren’t able to talk with them at any point in time. Although technology has allowed us to do this, I don’t necessarily think this means we need to. Humans are social creatures, but we need time spent by ourselves to do some mental and emotional housekeeping. This time is crucial for creativity, self-discovery and self-evaluation. We need to normalize people spending time alone, even in public settings. We can grow as human beings if we’re given time to individually pause and reflect without the annoyance of constant influence and chatter. Don’t be afraid to take some time for yourself. After all of the uncertainty, anxiety and worry that we’ve all felt recently, I say we could all use a moment to reflect. ILLUSTRATION BY LAWREN ELDERKIN

BLACK VOICES

One year as a federal holiday By Jaicey Bledsoe

jaicbled@iu.edu | @jaiceybledsoe

June 19, 1865. This was the day the last slaves in the United States were made aware they were now free. This came more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation into existence on Jan. 1, 1863. Though Juneteenth is largely recognized in the Black community as our true Independence Day as our freedom was neither won nor decided on July 4, 1776, it took 156 years for the day to be recognized as a federal holiday. It wasn’t until the outcry from the Black community — and overdue recognition from outside of it — during 2020 and the height of the Black Lives Matter movement that many people even knew what Juneteenth was or represented. With the fight against police violence, the struggle of Black students feeling isolated on campus, the continual effort to teach the full American history in schools and so

much more in recent years, many Black people feel Juneteenth isn’t just a day to remember when our ancestors were freed, but one to rest and review how far we have come, and renew ourselves for the fight ahead. Still, to this day, the federal holiday still isn’t recognized as it should be. In celebration and recognition of the Fourth of July, most workers get the day off work. If the holiday falls on a weekend, they get either the Friday before, or the Monday after off of work. Those who work in retail, food service industries, and the like often get holiday pay if they work during the holiday. However, though Juneteenth is now recognized as a federal holiday, the day is no different for many in the workforce. This summer, I am working at a camp run by a private elementary school in Indianapolis, which is the same school both of my brothers went to when they were in elementary school. Many parents rely on summer camp for childcare while they are

at work during the summer. However, in recognition of Juneteenth, the school did not hold summer camp on Juneteenth. I am grateful my workplace cares enough to not only exhibit their celebration and recognition through lip service, but by actually allowing workers to have the day off to celebrate and to use the day to rest and recharge. IU similarly will be treating Juneteenth as a paid holiday and closing campus every year in recognition of it. My mother was not so fortunate. While she was sent an email acknowledging the holiday, the recognition didn’t go beyond that. She is still working and will receive no monetary benefit or compensation for doing so. It is easy to think perhaps this is the case because the holiday was just recently recognized as a federal holiday. After all, it took some time for July Fourth to be recognized as a paid holiday as well. The difference, though, is the fact that July Fourth was nationally acknowledged and celebrated well before it was

made a federal holiday. Juneteenth was not. Not only this but the facts of its history being taught are still under contention within the ridiculous arguments against teaching critical race theory, a phrase that has been stripped of its true meaning — challenging the current schools of thought around the intersection of race, so-

ciety and law. This is accomplished by teaching the full breadth of American history, including Black American history beyond the handful of figures lectured on each February. If corporations want to truly recognize their Black employees, promote equity in their workplace and actually celebrate the legacy of June-

teenth, giving those employees the day off is a great start. We have a long way to go in the United States in all aspects of equity, and in this case, the recognition and celebration of Juneteenth. Making it a federal holiday a year ago was a step in the right direction, but I hope the celebrations continue to grow in the coming years.

happens because of city construction and constant usage of asphalt. He said asphalt absorbs heat very well, and as a result, things become much hotter than in a forest or natural environment. “I’ve seen some cases where it’s twenty degrees hotter in parts of the city compared to surrounding neighborhoods,” Johnson said. “That’s really an exceptional case, but hotter tem-

peratures in impoverished communities cause further problems.” Johnson said extreme heat is considered a natural disaster. He said around 2010, Indianapolis did a study with a consulting firm to see which potential natural disaster would likely strike Indianapolis or central Indiana. “The most likely disaster found was a heat wave,” Johnson said. “It causes health ef-

fects, taxes the electrical grid with air conditioning failure and this leads to a significant number of deaths.” He said it was more of a silent disaster compared to events like tornadoes and hurricanes, but that he was glad that awareness of the danger has increased during the past fifteen years. Johnson said that people should stay hydrated and put the air conditioning at lower temperatures.

More ways to keep cool: • Avoid staying outdoors for long periods of time — If necessary, try and go out during times when the temperature is cooler • When parking cars, do not leave windows open — The car still heats at a significant rate and children are more at risk than adult passengers • Wear light colors and thinner fabrics to reflect as much sunlight as possible

MEN’S TENNIS

Looking back on the men’s spring 2022 season

The Indiana men’s tennis team lost 13 out of its final 14 team matches. Despite the letdown in the spring 2022 season, the team has reasons to be excited about next season. By Emma Pawlitz

epawlitz@iu.edu | @emmapawlitz

Having faced a slew of tough competition during national tournaments in the fall, the Indiana men’s tennis team headed into the spring season hopeful to use its experiences to improve. The Hoosiers started the season strong but were unable to come out on top during many close matches against ranked and conference opponents. The team started its nonconference schedule in late

January, hosting the University of Toledo and Bellarmine University on the first weekend. The Hoosiers dominated both matches, winning the first 6-1 and the second 7-0. However, the competition only grew harder throughout the season. Indiana opened up the second weekend of play with a 4-3 win against Yale University. The Hoosiers recorded their first loss in a sweep against Princeton University the next day and would go on to win only three more team matches

the remainder of the season. The Hoosiers ended a four-match losing streak with a 4-0 win against Xavier University in late February. Two weeks later, they notched their fifth win of the season, sweeping Illinois State University 4-0. From that point on, Indiana faced more ranked than unranked opponents, including No. 25 Auburn University, No. 41 Vanderbilt University, No. 3 Ohio State and No. 6 Michigan. In their final 12 regular season matches, the Hoosiers went

0-12. Indiana competed toeto-toe with its opponents in almost every single match; the doubles point often came down to the third and final match, and many tiebreakers did not go in favor of the Hoosiers. One of the closest matches of the season came against Penn State on April 3. The Hoosiers and Nittany Lions had been trading wins all afternoon, and the deciding point fell into the hands of Indiana sophomore Ilya Tiraspolsky at the No. 4

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

singles match. Tiraspolsky dropped the match 2-6, 6-4, 6-7 (5-7) despite the home crowd and his teammates loudly cheering him on. The Hoosiers’ disappointment was obvious. Penn State was Indiana’s first-round opponent in the Big Ten Tournament almost a month later. The match once again was close, but this time went in favor of the Hoosiers 4-3. The redemption against the Nittany Lions was the Hoosiers’ sixth and final team win of the year. Indi-

ana’s season ended to eventual-conference tournament champion Michigan in a 2-4 loss. The Hoosiers have reason to be excited about next season despite this year’s letdown. All but one rotational player will return next season, including No. 1 and No. 2 singles players graduate students Carson Haskins and Patrick Fletchall. Indiana also gathered the No. 11 recruiting class in the country, with four incoming freshmen for the 2023 season.

Teri Moren, USA Basketball win gold medal at FIBA By Emma Pawlitz

epawlitz@iu.edu | @emmapawlitz

The USA Basketball Women’s U18 team competed in the FIBA Americas Championships from June 13-19 and won the gold medal on Sunday. The team was led by Texas A&M University head coach Joni Taylor with Indiana head coach Teri Moren and Old Dominion University head coach DeLisha Milton-Jones serving as assistants. Team USA competed in Group B of the tournament against Colombia, Puerto Rico and El Salvador during the preliminary rounds from June 1315. USA defeated each team by more than 50 points to go 3-0 and secure the top spot in the group. From there, the team defeated Mexico 77-41 in the

quarterfinals and Brazil 84-40 in the semifinals. USA and Canada — the only undefeated teams — squared off in the championship game. Team USA won 8277 against their toughest competition of the tournament. Moren joins current recruitment coordinator Ali Patberg and senior Grace Berger as Hoosiers who have earned a gold medal internationally. Patberg won hers at the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championships and Berger at the 2021 Pan American games. IDS FILE PHOTO BY ALEX PAUL

ROWING

Recapping the 2022 season for Indiana’s rowing team

IDS FILE PHOTO BY MATT SEBREE

Members of the Indiana rowing team celebrate April 30, 2022, at Lake Lemon. The Hoosiers ended the season with a fourth place finish in the conference. By Matt Sebree

masebr@iu.edu | @mattsebree

After finishing fifth in the Big Ten and missing the NCAA Championships for the first time in seven years during the 2021 season, Indiana rowing entered March 2022 looking to improve. Although the Hoosiers failed to reach the NCAA Championships, they recorded a better finish in the Big Ten and stayed competitive throughout the season. The Hoosiers’ regular season began at the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational, hosted by the University of Louisville at Melton Lake in Tennessee. At the 11-team seasonopening regatta, the Hoosiers experimented with different lineups and strategies to maximize their six boats’ potential. Despite changing lineups throughout the three-session meet, Indiana recorded wins in the First Varsity Eight and Secord Varsity Eight races of

the second session. For its second competition of the season, Indiana planned to travel to Ann Arbor to compete against defending Big Ten conference champion Michigan. The regatta, originally scheduled to take place on the Saturday of the weekend, was canceled due to inclement weather in the forecast. Instead, the Hoosiers and Wolverines competed in an unofficial scrimmage on Friday. The next week, Indiana traveled to Columbus, Ohio, for the OSU Regatta, where it won six of its 12 races across two cold and rainy sessions. Indiana’s wins came in the First Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight and First Varsity Four races in each session, beating the University of Oklahoma and Michigan State in the morning and the Spartans again in the afternoon. The most impressive result from the Hoosiers’ per-

formance in the OSU Regatta came in the morning’s Second Varsity Eight race, where Indiana won by a margin of nearly 17 seconds. Although it didn’t record the team’s largest margin of victory from the weekend, Indiana’s First Varsity Eight earned Big Ten Boat of the Week honors after jumping out to early leads and cruising to wins in both of its races. Next, the Hoosiers went to Sarasota, Florida, for the Big Ten Invitational and won four races during the weekend. The meet featured all eight Big Ten teams and eight other teams from around the country racing in three sessions over two days. In the first session, the Hoosiers saw success early with two wins and all four varsity boats finishing first or second in their races, but they were unable to keep up the momentum and all four finished third or fourth in the afternoon session. Indiana bounced back in

the meet’s final session, however, as the Hoosiers’ four varsity boats totalled one win, two second-place finishes and one third-place finish. All four varsity boats posted their fastest times of the weekend in their final races. The final regatta of the regular season, the 13th Dale England Cup, was also Indiana’s only competition at its home course on Lake Lemon this season. The meet featured Indiana racing in one session against the University of Notre Dame, Clemson University and Michigan State. The Hoosiers won all three of the scored races and two of the non-scored races to finish with a maximum possible score of 72 points and a fifthstraight Dale England Cup victory. Since the cup was the only home meet of the season, many fans showed up for their only chance to support the team in person. Those fans in attendance got to

cheer along during the most dominant performance of the day, when Indiana’s First Varsity Eight boat won its race by more than 11 seconds and set a new course record with a time of 6:27.6 in the process. At the Big Ten Championships in Indianapolis, the Hoosiers finished fourth overall and were unable to record a win as Ohio State and Michigan, both of whom entered the weekend ranked top-ten nationally, dominated all six races in the singlesession regatta. The best performance of the conference championships for Indiana came in the First Varsity Eight race, where the Hoosiers jumped out to an early lead through the first 500 meters. At the halfway point of the race, Indiana stood in third place with Rutgers quickly closing in, but the Hoosiers were able to hold off the Scarlet Knights to take the bronze medal by less than three-tenths of a second.

Although Indiana was not selected to compete in the NCAA Championships, multiple members of the team received individual honors from the Big Ten Conference. Senior Laura Fenison earned the Rowing Athlete of the Year award, as chosen by the conference’s head coaches, and made First Team All-Conference. Junior Piper Maaka and senior Ella Cunningham were named to the Second Team All-Conference. Next season, the Big Ten will again be a competitive conference as three teams — Ohio State, Michigan and Rutgers — qualified for the NCAA Championships, with Ohio State finishing the highest of the three in eight place. In the season-ending coaches’ poll, Ohio State ranked No. 6, Michigan No. 10, Rutgers No. 13 and Indiana No. 18. The Hoosiers’ 2023 season will begin next March.

Business knowledge has never been more important in the college sports industry By Emma Pawlitz

epawlitz@iu.edu | @emmapawlitz

On June 7, Duke University men’s basketball head coach Jon Scheyer did something nearly unheard of in the world of college sports: he announced the hire of a marketing executive, as the program’s general manager. Rachel Baker, a former Nike, NBA and WNBA marketing executive, is slated to help players “enhance their personal and professional skill sets, capitalize on strategic partnerships, including NIL opportunities and work to support players in navigating the opportunities and challenges that come with being a studentathlete at the highest level,” according to a release from Duke. Outside of a handful of college football programs that have offered longstanding general manager positions to handle recruiting, such as the University of Mississippi and Louisiana State University, Baker’s unique job role is the first of its kind in college sports. With the addition of a general manager to the program, Scheyer and the Blue Devils took the first step into a new era, embracing the newfound professional side of college athletics. Beyond being a groundbreaking move for college athletics, why was Baker’s hire so important? Simply put, the current state of the

recruiting process does not fall into a head coach’s job description. Even for the assistant coaches that handle most of the scouting, the money talk that is now necessary might stem beyond their academic pedigree. It can be easy to disappoint and miss out on top recruits if NIL opportunities are not communicated properly. A general manager who can handle all of the name, image and likeness affairs between athletes and outsiders will take a lot of pressure off the coaching staff. Let’s back up, though. Why was Baker the right person for this position? Take a look at her working background. She was a strategic initiatives manager at Nike, working for the company’s Elite Youth Basketball League and alongside NBA All-Star Kevin Durant. Baker also worked in the NBA league office, leading rebranding initiatives for the WNBA, NBA All-Star Game and NBA Combine. Her education includes an executive education certificate in business of entertainment, media and sport from Harvard University and a communications degree from LaSalle University, where she was a fouryear lacrosse player. Baker is clearly qualified to navigate the ups and downs of marketing and partnerships in college sports, and Scheyer is almost definitely not the only

coach that will make these business-oriented adjustments to his or her athletic program. The general manager position is one of many additions in the recent NIL era that is likely to catch on and might even become a necessity at some point. Take the Hoosiers for example. Men’s basketball head coach Mike Woodson has been clear about where he thinks NIL stands when it comes to playing college

sports, stating multiple times that it should not be a priority over academics when choosing a school. Still, the Hoosiers have provided their athletes with many opportunities to capitalize on their NIL. Basketball seniors Trayce JacksonDavis and Race Thompson signed deals with the Hoosiers For Good charity as recently as June 15. Earlier this month, Indiana announced an initia-

tive in partnership with NIL Store to help athletes market and sell personalized apparel. Although Indiana is only the second school to hop on this train after Illinois, the NIL merchandising initiative is likely to continue to expand throughout the Big Ten Conference as business between athletes and outside companies becomes increasingly normalized. While Duke basketball

has always been one of the most progressive and cutting-edge athletic programs in the country, even the traditions and conventions of Indiana basketball are making room for new programs and opportunities for its athletes. If the first year of the NIL era has taught us anything, it’s that the business aspect of college sports will always be an ever-developing priority.

Alumnus premieres film at Tribeca film festival By Tory Basile

vlbasile@iu.edu | @torybasilee

During his freshman year at IU, Devin Das found himself failing miserably out of his pre-med psychology classes, and wholly uninterested in going to medical school. Unsure of what he wanted to do, Das said he remembers talking with a friend about their telecommunications major with an emphasis in production and design. With that conversation, a realization clicked for Das, a lifelong self-proclaimed movie and TV nerd. “My mind was blown,” Das said. “I had never taken the time to consider what I wanted to do. I never thought of (filmmaking) as an actual thing to pursue.” Das said once he began pursuing telecommunications and film production, he finally knew what it was like to be passionate about something. After graduating in 2012, he moved to Los Ange-

les to intern at comedy studio Funny or Die. There, he dove into the job, and sought out as much hands-on learning experience as possible. Since then, Das has paved his way into independent filmmaking. Most recently, Das wrote, produced and starred in “Wes Schlagenhauf Is Dying,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 9. Das’ first feature film, “Keeping Company,” premiered in February 2021 and was released for video on demand on June 7, 2022. Das said he appreciates the creative freedom that comes with making independent films because it’s difficult to convince studios to take a chance on filmmakers. “I do feel more confident than ever that this was exactly the right path for me and my friends to take on in either film,” Das said. “Some of the reactions we’re getting from people who are watching these films, they just can’t wrap their heads around how

we pulled it off.” In Los Angeles, Das met his future co-stars in the studios of Funny or Die — “Wes Schlagenhauf Is Dying” director and star Parker Seaman, and the film’s namesake, actor Wes Schlagenhauf. Shortly after meeting, the trio started producing comedy sketches and eventually moved in together. They’ve been friends for almost 10 years. “Wes Schlagenhauf Is Dying” reflects the lives of its writers and leads — Das and Seaman said inspiration for the movie struck after they took a trip to visit Schlagenhauf in his hometown of Boise, Idaho. There, Seaman said the group had a psychedelic mushroom-induced, emotional conversation that led them to reflect on their decade-long friendship. “At that moment, Devin and I were like, ‘Maybe this is what the movie is about,’” Seaman said. “Writing about the very classic friendship intricacies that come with being

friends for so long.” In the movie, Das and Seaman’s characters set out to create the next great indie film during their final roadtrip to visit their dying friend, played by Schlagenhauf. For Das and Seaman, the film is a self-aware satire, commenting on the vanity and pointlessness that can come with filmmaking, especially during the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’re sort of making fun of the movie that you’re watching in real time,” Seaman said. “You’re also accidentally feeling something because these are about real people.” Because so much of the film is based on the friends’ own experiences and includes old footage of them through the years, Seaman hopes viewers leave with an understanding of who they are as filmmakers. Das was no stranger to producing with friends — he wrote and acted in 2021’s

“Keeping Company,” a satirical comedy-thriller, with director Josh Wallace. The pair wrote and produced the passion project out of Wallace’s one-bedroom apartment. For Wallace, indie film production can feel like putting out little fires everywhere. He said that halfway through production of “Keeping Company,” he and Das were still missing half of their filming budget. While Wallace was panicking that production

would have to shut down, he said Das kept his cool — and thankfully, the pair reached out to more investors and were able to finish the film. “I’ve always appreciated that about Devin,” Wallace said. “Just how talented he can be in terms of being able to keep that steady hand, but then do some silly scene in a movie. It’s truly impressive. I don’t know what they’re teaching at IU but it’s working.”
