Purdue student walks for Trent By Christine Stephenson | @cistephenson23

After walking nearly 100 miles, Purdue junior Aaron Lai arrived at Assembly Hall on Tuesday night in time to watch the Hoosiers and the Boilermakers tip off. Lai walked — and at times ran — from one campus to the other to raise money for the Tyler Trent’s Cancer Research Endowment. Trent, a Purdue student who captivated the nation during his fight against bone cancer, died in January. Lai originally hoped to raise $10,000. But by his arrival, his GoFundMe page already hit nearly $18,000 in donations. The Walther Cancer Foundation also agreed to match however much money Lai raises. He began walking at around 7 a.m. Sunday and didn’t stop until Tuesday evening, save for a few hours of sleep at a hotel overnight. Walking along the interstate felt more like walking on Legos by midday Monday, he said. Even as his legs grew weak and temperatures sometimes dropped into the teens, Lai said he was inspired to honor Trent’s legacy. Trent’s journey reminded Lai of his grandfather who died of lung cancer two years ago, he said. Both his grandfather and Trent lived on their own terms even during their battles with illness. “Tyler never let cancer define who he was or what he wanted to do with his life,” Lai said. Although he trained for the journey by walking for several hours a day for a month, Lai said the walk came with challenges. Two days before he SEE TRENT, PAGE 6

Crowd protests border wall By Jacob deCastro | @jacob_decastro

After President Trump declared a national emergency Friday to fund construction of a wall along the U.S. southern border, several Bloomington groups organized a protest against the wall Tuesday at Sample Gates. About a dozen people were at the protest, which started at 11:30 a.m. They held handwritten signs and banners with messages in support of immigrants and against the president, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the border wall. The protestors waved at cars honking in support of them as they drove by. “It’s not an actual emergency,” freshman and UndocuHoosiers member Deisdy Rodriguez said. “There are other, actual emergencies. He’s abusing his power.” The president announced the emergency declaration after Congress passed a spending bill that did not include the money he wanted for the wall. “I feel compelled to voice my concern against a border wall,” Marta Gerbig, 45, said. “I think the policy is grounded in racism.” Bloomington’s Tuesday demonstration joined similar protests in cities around the country. Pamphlets handed out at the protest called for protestors to “create a real national emergency for Trump.” The idea for the protest in Bloomington came from IU on Strike. According to the group’s Twitter biography, it organized a strike in April 2013. “Can we mobilize here in #Bloomington against the #FakeTrumpEmergency and to support asylum-seekers? We can help deal #blockthewall and block Trump,” the group tweeted.

Swimming looks ahead IU women’s swim and dive looks to upset Michigan for Big Ten title in final farewell to seniors CLAIRE LIVINGSTON | IDS

By Matt Cohen | @Matt_Cohen_

For the first time since 2011, the Big Ten Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships are at IU. The Big Ten championships began Wednesday night and run through Saturday at the Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center. Leading up to the championships, the theme for the Hoosiers has been “All In” for one final meet as a complete team. The meet marks both the final home meet for the team’s senior class. Though for the Hoosiers to have a chance to win this year’s Big Ten team title, they are certainly going to have be all in and get some help. The Big Ten championships are a two-horse race between the Wolverines and Hoosiers. Michigan comes into the championships a perfect 8-0 in dual meets, ranked as a top-five team in the country. “They’re going to need to leave the door open with mistakes or some bad swims for us to have any sort of shot,” Looze said. Michigan is the favorite to win the conference team title, repeating its 2018 championship. IU will be the strongest competition to Michigan as it has second highest national ranking in the conference. The multiday meet began Wednesday night with the 200 yard medley relay and the 800 yard freestyle relay. The Hoosiers won the 200 yard medley relay for the second year in row, posting a time

of one minute, 34.71 seconds. The time goes as the third fastest in the nation this season after the University of Tennessee and North Carolina State University each put up faster times at different meets within 24 hours of IU’s Big Ten title winning swim. During her leg of the relay, senior Lilly King posted the fastest 50 yard split time ever recorded, according to SwimSwam, touching the wall in just 25.36 seconds. King’s leg pushed the Hoosiers to a strong lead in front of the pack, but the Wolverines almost caught up. In the final 50 yards, IU junior Shelby Koontz touched the wall two tenths of a second before the Wolverines. The time for the Hoosiers is faster than the NCAA A-Cut mark, which automatically qualifies the relay group for the NCAA Championships. In the 800 yard freestyle relay, Michigan came from about two body lengths back of the lead, when it came bursting out to the front, winning by six seconds. IU finished fifth in the event, about 13 seconds behind Michigan. After the first night, the Hoosiers trail the Wolverines in the team standings, 120-114. IU and Michigan had a dual meet in January, where the Hoosiers lost 178-128. Michigan won 10 individual events in the blowout win, and took two out of the top three spots in the majority of events. Looze knows that IU is going to need Michigan to make mistakes for his team to capitalize on to have a chance at a team title. Michigan is an extremely balanced group,

with swimmers who have top 10 national times in nearly every stroke. IU doesn’t boast the same type of balance as it struggles in events such as freestyle, the stroke where Michigan is at its best. “The sooner that we can send a message that we are any sort of threat to them, the better because then that will apply a lot of pressure,” Looze said. “The longer they’re under stress and pressure, then we can look across the pool and see crisis management occurring. We got to squeeze the pressure around them.” IU had its senior day festivities in the final regular season meet of the year against University of Louisville. With the celebration concluded and those emotions in the past, Looze said his team has been able to focus and treat these Big Ten Championships as it would any other meet. King is expected to sweep the 100 and 200 yard breaststroke, despite not tapering for the conference championships, and instead focusing on putting up her best times for the national championships. Victories in the 100 and 200 yard breaststroke will be the eighth and ninth individual Big Ten titles for King, respectively. SEE SWIM & DIVE, PAGE 6

Bloomington theaters to show Oscar shorts By Madison Smalstig | @madi_smals

The Oscar Shorts Film Festival will continue this weekend, Feb. 22-24, at various locations around Bloomington. Presented by local arts organization the Ryder, this festival showcases the Academy Award nominees for the three categories: Animated Short, Best Live Action Short Film and Best Documentary Film Short Subject. The festival is also showing four full-length films as a part of the Oscar’s theme. Three of these films are 2019 nominees, two for Best Documentary Feature and one for Best Foreign Film.

Hollingsworth talks health care, more at IU By Christine Stephenson | @cistephenson23

Rep. Trey Hollingsworth, R-9th District, visited IU on Monday to discuss issues such as the national emergency and access to health care. Hollingsworth answered questions from audience members, many of whom were local business leaders, at the Indiana Memorial Union as part of the Federal Focus luncheon, organized by the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce. About 100 people attended, some dressed in suits and ties. Wearing jeans and a checkered polo, Hollingsworth showed up about half an hour after the event started. He continually emphasized how important it is for government officials, including President Trump, to represent their communities instead of pursuing their own agendas.

The Chamber sponsors a federal focus meeting every year to allow local leaders to interact with their community and hear its concerns. In previous years, the Chamber has invited those such as Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind. and former Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly. “It’s an opportunity for individuals to hear directly from their representatives and hear an update from someone who is actually there in the legislature,” said Anne Bono, vice president of the Chamber. “Whether you voted for him or not, he’s representing you.” Hollingsworth first talked about the national emergency. He said the government should not continue to delegate more and more power to the executive branch. He said Trump’s issuing of the national emergency to pursue his goal of building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border was an attempted

simple solution to a complicated issue. “It’s really easy to hope for quick solutions,” he said. “But democracies weren’t built for easy, quick solutions. It’s messy, it’s difficult, it’s frustrating.” However, Hollingsworth still supports the motivation behind the national emergency. He said the government owes it to its citizens to stop

illegal immigration and to reform immigration policies. “I am a big believer that we have a crisis at the border,” he said. Those trying to enter the country who are experiencing violence and sexual assault need to be protected and offered better chances at legal immigration, he said. At the same time, U.S. citizens are suffering from illegal im-

migration, he claimed, for reasons like illegal substances being brought across the border. Moving forward, Hollingsworth said citizens should have more say in how the Department of Defense budget is used, whether they support the wall or not. “I don’t think it should be decided just by the president,” he said.

Hollingsworth said he believes health care is the most pressing problem for Americans. Many are paying overpriced premiums and deductibles, he said, and many do not have access to care at all. He said he wants to provide access to health care for all Americans. “Both parties demand their ordered solution and only their ordered solution,” he said. “We have to push back against that.” Hollingsworth said Americans need to stay informed about these issues by seeking information from multiple news platforms and taking time to process the information instead of looking for simple answers. “Immigration, health care, even economic policy, these are big, complicated issues,” he said. “If they were easy issues, if they were one solution, all we need is a silver bullet, we would’ve done that long ago.”

Council candidate to focus on climate Homophobic By Lilly St. Angelo | @lilly_st_ang

When Daniel Bingham read that in order to limit global warming to avoid extreme consequences, the world would have to cut carbon emissions nearly in half by 2030 from their 2010 levels, he was alarmed. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest report in October said just that. So he decided to do something about it. Four months later, Bingham, 32, decided to run for Bloomington City Council’s District 2 seat. Dorothy Granger currently holds the seat and is running for re-election. “You’re looking at completely rewiring society in ten years,” Bingham said. “That’s not a lot of time.” Bingham’s main focuses, if elected, would be addressing climate change in Bloomington and providing more affordable housing in

Daniel Bingham the community. Bingham grew up in Bloomington, and his parents are professors at IU. After teaching math and science in Thailand for six months, the software engineer returned to Bloomington in 2010 and got involved in environmental activism while volunteering at the Bloomington Community Orchard. He served as the community board president for Bloomington Cooperative Living, a democratically run

organization controlled by its members who live together, for three years. He never lived in the co-op. Bingham said he believes more cooperative housing could solve some of the affordable housing problems in Bloomington. He also believes condensing housing in Bloomington and building up instead of out is the only way to expand sustainably. In order for Bloomington to reduce its carbon footprint, Bingham believes the city needs to slowly deincentivize cars. Bingham began advocating for this at city council meetings when the council was deciding whether to rebuild the Fourth Street parking garage or to repair it. Bingham said first the city needs to expand its public transit system and biking infrastructure and then reduce parking. Kevin Weinberg, Bing-

ham’s neighbor and friend, worked with Bingham on the cooperative housing board. Weinberg also works for the city to record local government meetings for the Community Action Television Service. “He has a fire about him that I don’t really see in city government,” Weinberg said. “I trust his passion and his focus.” Retired IU biology professor Mimi Zolan is a close friend of Bingham’s mother and has known Bingham his whole life. “He’s very intellectually intense,” Zolan said. “He does his homework.” Zolan said Bingham also is not afraid of stepping up to the plate when people need a leader. Bingham and his partner are expecting a baby, and Bingham has a full time job as a software engineer. “This is not a vanity project for him,” Zolan said.

post made on Greekrank page By Joey Bowling | @jwbowling08

Anonymous homophobic comments were posted Monday night and Tuesday morning on, a popular website for colleges’ and universities’ greek communities. One post asked why greek houses bid gay members. Another alleged two fraternity brothers were kissing during a party. The fraternities the post mentioned were part of the Interfraternity Council. Some commenters re-

sponded, calling the posts “outdated” and “crusty.” These were not Greekrank’s first problematic posts. IFC President Sam Wiser condemned the posts, saying IFC is committed to accepting people from different backgrounds. “We are disgusted by these comments and stand in full with the LGBTQ members of our community,” Wiser said in an email. “Additionally, we condemn those who cowardly hide behind a computer screen and spew this type of nonsense.”

Proposed self-defense bill passes House By Joey Bowling | @jwbowling08

A bill justifying the use of force in certain instances of self-defense passed the Indiana House of Representatives Feb. 12 and has advanced into the Senate. House Bill 1284, if passed, would provide civil immunity for people who use force to defend themselves and others during the event of a forcible felony, which involves the threat of force or harm, burglary or residential entry. It’s a variation of a “stand your ground” law, a type of law becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. Jody Madeira, IU law professor and Second Amendment expert, said “stand your ground” laws come in several varieties. The castle doctrine, derived from English com-

mon law and adopted by almost every state including Indiana, says people are allowed to use force against an intruder in their own home. Some versions allow someone to defend themselves wherever they are legally allowed to be, such as the workplace, Madeira said. These laws have become more common in the past 20 years. Indiana has both the Castle Doctrine and allows people to use force if there is a threat of imminent deadly force, Madeira said. She said this bill is cementing protection for people who lawfully use force in self-defense. “If you are using self-defense lawfully, you can prove that this is justified in a lawsuit,” Madeira said. Madeira said the proposed

bill cuts off the possibility of a lawsuit in certain situations, reaching the end result sooner without the defendant racking up legal fees. It also deters lawsuits by making the plaintiff pay the defendant’s legal fees if the case is thrown out. However, there are exceptions to this proposed law, Madeira said. The original aggressor, someone committing a felony or someone using deadly force cannot claim self defense. Madeira said one part of the proposed bill is different than other states who have this immunity and could cause trouble. If a person uses self-defense and isn’t charged with a crime, that can be used as an assumption of innocence in a civil lawsuit. Nidhi Krishnan, Bloom-

ington South High School senior and co-founder of the local Students Demand Action chapter, said she fears the bill may create more cases like the one involving Trayvon Martin, a black youth killed while walking down the street in Sanford, Florida. “Stand your ground laws in general are used to marginalize people of color,” Krishnan said. Krishnan said some of her fears were put to rest when she spoke with her state representative. “I’m still not a huge fan of it, but I think it’s a lot better than it could be,” Krishnan said. Krishnan said this bill will likely have little effect due to pre-existing laws, since civil suits in these situations commonly end in the same result.

BFC talks attendance policies, tenure By Alex Hardgrave | @a_hardgrave

The Bloomington Faculty Council met Tuesday to discuss a change in attendance policies and the effects a projected high school graduation decrease will have on IU’s budget. Budget IU-Bloomington’s in-state tuition has grown by 0.8 percent in the past five years, while Purdue University-West Lafayette remained constant. Over 16 years, state appropriations increased approximately $75 million. Student fee revenue increased over $750 million. Indiana high school graduations are anticipated to decline by 11 percent by 2031. Bob Kravchuk, co-chair of the University Faculty Council Budgetary Committee, said the best scenario for responding to the effects of this would include getting students to stay and go on to graduate

programs at IU, finding ways to keep attracting students and help students to not drop out. Student Affairs Committee and IU Health Center on medical forms and attendance policies Some professors require students provide proof from the IU Health Center of medical visits if the student misses class. The IU Health Center is looking to limit that practice. Health Director Beth Rupp said she feels the current forms cannot verify if the student was actually sick or if they just came to the health center so they could get an excuse for missing a class. Also, visits to the health center cost at least $45 and some students cannot afford that. The Dean of Students Office will continue to help when students have an extended illness absence or family matters. Steve Sand-

ers, Student Affairs Committee chair, said the change will mean students and facility will need to have more faceto-face interactions when absences occur. BFC does not have formal power over the decision, Rupp said she was open to suggestions because the health center has not made a decision yet. Maggie Hopkins, IU Student Government vice president of administration, said she thinks the best attendance policy is one that mirrors many work policies by allowing a certain number of free absences, but once the free absences are used students will have to deal with the consequences. IUSG IUSG reported they helped 550 students register to vote and hung 7,100 posters to inform students about various services students can get on campus. They also are planning an

international fashion show and do a helmet giveaway because of the Bird and Lime scooters. Voting rights of full-time non-tenure track faculty The council recommended a plan for how non-tenure track faculty should be able to vote on administrative issues. The council cannot force schools to either allow or disallow these faculty members to vote, but a 2002 resolution by the council encouraged schools to allow it. A new resolution presented Tuesday recommended schools allow non-tenure track staff to vote in campus, school and department-level decisions. It also recommended tenured faculty have at least 60 percent of voting power in certain decisions and directed leaders to report non-tenure track faculty voting rights and participation in their respective schools at least once every three years.


IU alumni Nycha Schlegel and Dallas “Bill” Loos donated $4 million to the Bloomington campus’s School of Education and other IU facilities, according to an IU press release.

IU institutions receive $4 million By Joey Bowling | @jwbowling08

Two alumni donated $4 million to IU-Bloomington’s School of Education and other IU programs. Nycha Schlegel and Dallas “Bill” Loos donated the money to places that were significant to them during their time at IU, according to a press release from the university. A little over half the money will go to a new scholarship in their name for Wells Scholars. The rest will go toward the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Education Scholarship, the Bill Loos and Nycha Schle-

gel Business Scholarship and the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Libraries Fund. The couple met when they were resident assistants in Wright Quad. Now married, Schlegel has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education from IU and Loos has two IU master’s degrees, one from the School of Education and one from the Kelley School of Business. “I am extremely grateful that IU gave me the opportunity to attend a world-class university,” Loos said in the press release. “I want to give the same opportunities to other students who want to pursue their dreams.”

IU losing streak continues against Purdue By Cameron Drummond | @cdrummond97

On a night when IU’s archetypal heroes played to the crowd, it was Purdue’s pantomime villain who brought silence to Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Jeered and sneered at all night by the IU student section, barely a moment went by during Purdue’s 48-46 win without a rude remark or gesture made toward Boilermaker sophomore center Matt Haarms. But it was the faintest of touches from Haarms with 3.2 seconds to go, as he rose above IU senior forward Juwan Morgan, to tip in a missed shot from junior guard Carsen Edwards, which brought all that noise to an abrupt and lasting end. Edwards’ 20th missed shot presented a chance for Haarms and Morgan, the representation of good and evil to the Bloomington crowd, to try and grab the ball in the final seconds with the game tied at 46. Haarms won out. “A hundred percent I think I had position,” Morgan said of the attempt. And when Morgan’s 3-point shot at the buzzer, which came with Haarms closing down on him, barely hit the rim, it allowed Haarms to wheel his 7-foot-3-inch frame toward his on-rushing teammates and meet them midair for a chest bump.


Freshman guard Romeo Langford shoots the ball against Purdue on Feb. 19 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. IU lost, 48-46.

Given the final score to Tuesday night’s contest, the two ways to approach the game were to view it as either a defensive masterclass or an offensive nightmare. Both teams combined to make just 34 of their 115 shot attempts, Edwards went a woeful 4-24 shooting field goals and freshman guard Romeo Langford’s 14 points were a game-high. In lieu of scoring, intensity and tenacity were the defining

characteristics of what is likely to be the final installment of the IU-Purdue series this season. “It’s probably as physical of a basketball game that I’ve ever been a part of,” IU Coach Archie Miller said. “The team that took the floor tonight had a great disposition, and that’s the thing that needs to stay.” Prior to the game, talk surrounding IU, now 13-13 overall and 4-11 in conference play, focused on “drastic

changes” referenced by Miller following last week’s loss at Minnesota. The increased communication, energy and on-court focus sought by Miller and his staff came to fruition through the play of Morgan, Langford and junior forward De’Ron Davis, and was reciprocated by a sellout Assembly Hall crowd. While Morgan struggled to convert his usual drives to the basket, settling for his sec-

ond-worst shooting game of the season with a 3-14 effort, he led all players in the game with 11 rebounds. When he made a basket through contact in the first half, he briefly flexed his muscles then beat his chest twice, a celebration reminiscent of the swagger IU played with during nonconference play. “He’s been the leader that we’ve needed him to be through this hard time,” Langford said. “He hasn’t shied

away from this stretch we’re going on.” Langford vomited behind the IU bench just before the second half began, but fought through to return, scoring five points in the second period, all via free throws, and also tie his season-high with nine defensive rebounds. “He’s a gamer, man,” Miller said. “I think no one understands more than him how important he is to the team.” But juxtaposing Haarms, it was Davis who energized the crowd and his teammates as IU’s caped-crusader. Twice in the game Davis, who had eight points and six rebounds, tangled with Haarms in afterthe-whistle altercations. The most notable of these came in the second half, when a technical foul was assessed to Haarms after a flailing arm was sent in Davis’ general direction. Beyond his role as enforcer, Davis’ 4-6 shooting night marked the best shooting percentage on IU’s team. “He was ready to play,” Miller said. “I thought tonight he did a really good job actually, offense and defensive rebound for us, gave us a lowpost presence we could throw it to.” A veteran performance from Morgan, a resilient one from Langford and an unflinching one from Davis didn’t show up in the postgame stat sheet. Something that did was the end result — an IU loss.

IU shows fight on defense in Tuesday’s loss to Purdue By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

After practice Monday, IU Coach Archie Miller said he saw something he hasn’t seen from his team in a while – a willingness to compete. Losing 10 of the last 11 games had sucked the energy out of his team. With a 13-12 overall record and No. 15 Purdue in Bloomington on Tuesday night, IU looked like the team Miller alluded to from practice. Despite the Hoosiers falling 48-46 to the Boiler-

makers, it wasn’t due to a lack of effort this time. “I know there’s more to this game than most,” Miller said. “But our team competed tonight at a great level and a lot of guys made a lot of hard plays.” In his first game since Jan. 30 against Rutgers, senior guard Zach McRoberts played pivotal minutes and made the hustle plays he’s been known for. Last week, Miller said McRoberts wasn’t at 100 percent, and wasn’t likely to play due to a foot injury. Though McRoberts would see the floor against

Purdue, and while he only played 12 minutes, there wasn’t a moment that he looked like a liability on the court. On his first offensive possession, McRoberts battled in the paint and grabbed an offensive rebound. It didn’t result in any IU points, but the injury didn’t seem to bother him. Just 1:06 later, McRoberts made a steal at half court, but IU was still unable to turn it into points. In the game, he scored three points with two rebounds, and his burst of energy was felt.

“I thought his minutes obviously were good minutes for us,” Miller said. “Hopefully we can continue to see how he operates here afterwards but his toughness plays and some of the scrap plays that he makes, they go a long way.” Freshman guard Romeo Langford didn’t have his best shooting night but provided one of his best defensive performances of the season. Using his length and quickness, Langford helped limit Purdue guards junior Carsen Edwards and senior Ryan Cline to 8-of-34 shoot-

ing from the field, including a 3-of-18 mark on 3-point attempts. In the first half, Langford seemed to be well on his way to a double-double. He led both teams with nine points and seven rebounds but didn’t start the second half after becoming ill on the sideline. Langford checked back in with 13:36 remaining and didn’t attempt a shot in the second half. He wasn’t providing the offensive production IU is accustomed to, but he drew seven fouls and made nine of his 10 free throws.

“We just looked at the film from last time and tried to do the things we struggled with when it came to Carsen Edwards and Ryan Cline,” Langford said. “I think that was the reason that we were so disruptive this time on defense.” Going forward Miller said his team has to stick with what they’ve talked about over the last 48 hours, and move on despite the sting of the loss still lingering. “The disposition and the mentality has to stay with what we were at tonight,” Miller said.


Warriors’ Kevin Durant is the superstar we keep forgetting about Brandon Schaff is a junior in media.

The stage was set perfectly on Sunday in Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2019 All-Star Game. In its second year under the new format, the All-Star Game rosters were handselected by two of the biggest names of the sport, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. James, widely regarded as the greatest basketball player in the world for the better half of his career, was one of two All-Star team captains. The other, Greek sensation and Milwaukee Bucks star, Antetokounmpo, led the charge from the start, becoming the early front-runner for All-Star Game MVP.

Yet, with his team in a 20-point hole, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was quietly keeping his team in it. Along with some stellar shooting help from Damian Lillard in the third quarter, Durant started to take over the game in the second half. While the first half was filled with endless highlights from members of Team Antetokounmpo including Stephen Curry and Khris Middleton, Team LeBron decided to step up the defense in the third quarter. After scoring 95 points in the first two quarters, Team Giannis was limited to just 69 points in the second half. This allowed Durant to put himself in the driver’s seat of a comeback.

The 2012 All-Star Game MVP proved once again why he is in the conversation as the best basketball player in the world. His 31 points were second only to Antetokounmpo’s 38, but Antetokounmpo went cold down the stretch. Durant did exactly the opposite, shooting 100 percent from the field on four-forfour shooting in the fourth quarter. Even more impressive, three of those four shots were from behind the arc. The 10-time All-Star went on to score 18 of his team-high 31 points in the second half, leading Team LeBron to a 178-164 comeback win. Durant’s stellar threepoint shooting was part of a barrage of long-range

shots from his team, which knocked down a remarkable 22 3-pointers in the second half alone. Durant’s performance earned him his second ca-

reer All-Star Game MVP award. James, who only scored 19 points, looked the least like his younger self in recent All-Star memory. While he

was tied with Kawhi Leonard for the second most points on his team, Antetokounmpo and Paul George combined for 58 points in a losing effort. Khris Middleton, 20 points on six-for-10 shooting from three, even came off the bench to score more than James. With James more vulnerable than ever in the Western Conference, the question of how long he vacates the throne as the best player in the NBA persists. The All-Star game served as a perfect opportunity for players like Durant and Antetokounmpo to move closer to overthrowing LeBron as the NBA’s best.

A potion that can make someone young forever, a remedy to get rid of bed bugs and a magic concoction that can make a person irresistible. These are just some of the many capabilities of the elixirs created by Dr. Dulcamara in the upcoming Musical Arts Center performance, “The Elixir of Love.” “The Elixir of Love” will show at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22 and 23 and March 1 and 2 at the Musical Arts Center. Student tickets start at $10 and adults at $15. The opera is doublecast, with each cast performing two nights. The opera follows Nemorino, a simple peasant who is trying to win the affection of wealthy landowner Adina. Nemorino appears to lose his love when Adina falls for a military man whom she promises to marry. Convinced he will never be able to get over his crush, Nemorino purchases an elixir from Dr. Dulcamara, a traveling doctor, that will supposedly make him irresistible. However, Dr. Dulcamara’s potions are a total hoax, which makes Nemorino seem more foolish.


Adina, portrayed by Alyssa Dessoye, and Nemorino, portayed by Brad Bickhardt, share a song during dress rehearsal for “The Elixir of Love” on Feb. 19 inside the theater at the Musical Arts Center.

The scenes that follow are full of back and forth between Nemorino, Adina and her military fiancé, as the two men fight for Adina’s heart. Linda Brovsky, the director of the production, said the opera was composer Gaetano Donizetti’s love letter. “It’s like a wonderful souffle, it’s light, it’s funny,

it’s heartfelt,” Brovsky said. “I think you really start identifying with the characters in a way that you might not if they’re kings and queens. These are just simple people going through life.” Despite the opera originally premiering in 1832, Brovsky said she still finds much of the plot relatable today.

“There’s the town that’s so willing to trust their lives to a quack, which is not so different from today where we buy vitamins that are going to make us younger or creams that are going to get rid of wrinkles,” Brovsky said. “We’re doing it still, so it reflects all of that,” Brovsky said. Alyssa Dessoye, one of the

actresses playing Adina, said the relatable characters combined with the high energy cast makes this opera special. “We do have two different casts, but really everyone is just so tight knit and I think that’s really special and really something that you don’t often see,” Dessoye said. “Everyone just has really good

chemistry because of that so I think that’s something that makes the show really special and drives it forward.” Brovsky said every role has been developed to its fullest, especially the chorus. “To watch how they’ve taken those two lines and created whole worlds, and because they invested so much, it gave me more creative ideas,” Brovsky said. “We have all of these side stories going on that you normally don’t see.” In addition to the cast, opera conductor David Neely said the sparkling, contrasting music provides comedic aspects. “This music is like if you take the absolute freshest ingredients and put them together, like Master Chef puts them together, in just the right way,” Neely said. Dessoye said everyone in the cast, crew and orchestra have put their heart and soul into this production, and that it is evident when watching the opera. “It’s something that takes you out of your everyday life and teaches you a couple lessons here and there along the way, but also it brightens your day,” Dessoye said.

Custom ringmaking class to occur By Grace Ybarra | @gnybarra

Attendees can make their own rings at a copper electroforming jewelry workshop this week. "Copper & Crystals: Rings" will take place at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at Sophia Collective in downtown Bloomington on North Morton Street. Electroforming is through the process of fusing copper to other mediums, in this case to make jewelry. The workshop will be taught by Allie McHaley, owner of jewelry company Allie and Tess. Her company

specializes in holistic healing through crystals, essential oils and reiki. “If you’re interested in crystals or you just love jewelry or you just want to try something new, the Copper and Crystals class can be a fun opportunity for that,” McHaley said. McHaley is one of Sophia Collective’s seven cofounders. The studio is comprised of different healers including a chiropractor, esthetician, massage therapist and reiki master who offer services such as vegan spray tanning and waxing. It also features a movement studio, retail space and an infrared sauna.

“We’re a well-being studio,” McHaley said. “You can come and you can heal your body, mind and spirit.” The $65 ticket to the class includes the materials for the ring, education on how to make it and some light refreshments. McHaley said the ticket price is comparable to the price of her jewelry pieces available for purchase. During the workshop, each student will learn how to make a ring band and securely attach the stone to the shaft. They will have the opportunity to create rings in different styles and even come up with their own design. “It’s a totally one-of-a-kind


People can learn how to make their own rings at “Copper & Crystals: Rings,” a copper electroforming jewelry workshop, at 4:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at Sophia Collective in downtown Bloomington. Electroforming is the process of fusing copper to other mediums, in this case to make jewelry.

piece,” McHaley said. Students will pick from a number of both polished and raw stones including clear quartz, amethyst, jasper, agates, smoky quartz, ruby and blue kyanite, McHaley said. After the class, McHaley said she will take the pieces back to the studio where she will carry out the final steps of the ring making process. Participants will then be able to pick up their pieces around two to three weeks later at Sophia Collective. “I enjoy watching people making what they make,” McHaley said. “But their faces when they come and pick it up and they get to see what they created and how proud they are of what they created, I think that’s the best part.” While the class does not require any experience, she said that she anticipates students will struggle with letting go of perfectionism. “People get stuck in their heads and want it to look perfect,” McHaley said. “And if they’ve never done it before, it can be a little intimidating. You don’t have to have had any experience making jewelry in order to walk away with something really beautiful.” Through the workshop two-and-a-half hour workshop, McHaley said she hopes to connect people with the healing properties of the stones and open people’s minds to what they can make themselves. “It’s just introducing people to an alternative way of finding ways to take care of themselves,” McHaley said. “I hope people find that they had a really fun experience making something with their hands."


The Milk Carton Kids arrive Feb. 10 at the 61st Grammy Awards.

The Milk Carton Kids coming to Buskirk-Chumley By Clark Gudas | @this_isnt_clark

Twice Grammy-nominated duo the Milk Carton Kids will perform at 8 p.m. March 3 at the BuskirkChumley Theater. The Milk Carton Kids are an indie folk duo from Eagle Rock, California. Its new album, “All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do,” was released June 29. The band will play music from the new album with an accompanying band during the performance. Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan make up the band. “With pure tones and moving voices, The Milk Carton Kids know how to capture the quiet dynamics of every song as their guitars and gorgeous harmonies weave a spell that is captivating audiences from coast to coast,” according to the Buskirk-Chumley Theater website. The band’s 2013 album, “The Ash & Clay,” received a Grammy Award nomination for the year’s

Best Folk Album, along with a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2013 Americana Music Honors and Awards. In 2014, the group was selected by the American Music Association as Duo/Group of the Year. On Spotify, the band’s song “Michigan” has more than 22 million plays, with a number of other songs in the 10s of millions. “All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do” is the first time the guitar duo has performed with a backup band, as they will at the BuskirkChumley. “We wanted to do something new,” Pattengale said, according to the BuskirkChumley website. “Musically we knew we were going to make the record with a bigger sonic palette,” Ryan said. “It was liberating to know we wouldn’t have to be able to carry every song with just our two guitars.” Tickets for the concert start at $30 and are available online.

But even then, he said he could only sleep for about five hours if he wanted to make it to Assembly Hall on time.

Along with protein bars, water and a change of shoes, Sammons said Lai also asked for a lot of ibuprofen and a lacrosse ball to roll out his leg muscles. Lai said his fraternity brothers have also gave him full meals, such as chicken, potatoes and vegetables. Although Lai’s story has gained attention from several news organizations and had hundreds of donations from the GoFundMe page, he did not always have the same

Bloomington should make police footage cheaper Indiana law limits the cost of obtaining police body camera and dash camera recordings to the cost of recording it, capping at $150, which was the original minimum cost. The Bloomington City Council recently had its second hearing to consider lowering costs. These are public record, and citizens have a right to acquire this footage without an excessive burden. This is a move that should not only be exercised by Bloomington, but by all communities not adhering to the same standard. The most glaring concern when considering the issue is that of affordability. According to Time, police departments in some cities can generate up to 10,000 hours of footage a week. To store this film, departments have begun to rely on private, largecapacity storage companies to hold on to footage for as long as possible. Although not specifically outlined in Bloomington’s 2019 Annual Budget, the typical yearly cost of a body camera for a single officer, data storage included, typically


Bloomington city council recently had a second hearing about whether or not to lower the cost of acquiring body and dashcam footage.

comes to around $1,000. If all Bloomington police officers must wear body cameras, the cost to equip the entire city’s 103 sworn officers and detectives when engaging with the public comes to just over $100,000. This is of

course if all officers were required to wear cameras at all times, which they don’t. Dash camera footage costs vary broadly. Still they are not too expensive to consider possibly lowering the cost to acquire them, as evidenced by

the recent hearings. Bloomington has approved over $91 million in funds toward its governmental programs for the fiscal year, many would be quick to agree that lowering the cost for civilians to acquire footage

are welcomed losses in assuring the public feels the police department is being extra accountable. Not only should the cost to the city be considered, but the cost to citizens must be as well. In 2017, the median

household income in Bloomington was $49,043. Acquiring body camera footage for less than $150 could alleviate some costs of lengthy legal proceedings, or overturn convictions entirely. Body camera and dash camera footage has frequently held officers accountable for their actions when interacting with the public. While body camera footage should not be seen as a vehicle to viciously search for mistakes, it can serve to clear up inconsistencies in certain situations. There’s no reason to not make the footage available to citizens for the cost of collecting it. It supports the public’s interest in transparency by the Bloomington Police Department. With all the trust placed in officers, it is imperative that citizens of Bloomington, and all other communities, have a greater level of access to the way officers perform their jobs. This is a move that should not only be fully endorsed by the City of Bloomington, but by all other cities in Indiana not following the same practice.



Don’t give teachers firearms

Impeach Attorney General Curtis Hill

Catherine Blankensop is a junior in journalism.

The shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, occurred one year ago. Since then, there has been countless conversations among citizens, activists and lawmakers about how we can prevent this from happening again. House Bill 1253, which would allocate school funding for firearm training, passed through an Indiana House committee last week, FOX59 News reported. Though this idea comes from a desire to protect our state’s students, allowing educators to carry firearms will ultimately put students in more danger. The number of school shootings recorded in 2018 varies by source depending on how a school shooting is defined. Education Week tracks incidents that happen on K-12 property during school hours or a school event that resulted in at least one injury or death other than the shooter. By its definition of a “school shooting”, it recorded 24 school shootings that caused 35 deaths and 79 injuries in 2018. Some believe that arming teachers will help protect students and stop shootings. According to FOX59 News, Indiana state law already allows teachers to be armed, but many districts choose not to. House Bill 1253 lets the decision remain in the hands of the districts. Arming our teachers is

dangerous. Even with thorough firearms training, we cannot ensure that we are putting firearms in the hands of teachers we can trust. The screening process to become an educator varies greatly for each state. For too many, this process is too loose. USA Today evaluated states across the country based on their teacher screening processes. Each state’s score was determined by its background check process, how it shares disciplinary records and whether misconduct was required to be reported to the state. States were scored by letter grades. Indiana received an F. Only 15 states received an A or a B. Indiana schools were determined to have a weak screening process and very

little public information available about teacher misconduct. Unfortunately, because of these loose regulations, an admirable profession can be infiltrated by violent and abusive adults unfit to work with children. Across the country there are stories about abuse against students with special needs. This month, a mother in West Virginia discovered her nonverbal, special-needs daughter was the victim of violent verbal abuse after hiding an audio recorder in her hair. Young students are often victims of sexual abuse and assault by teachers. Like a girl in Hawaii whose rapist was sentenced to 10 years in prison this month. She was only 14 when her teacher began sexually assaulting

her. Some instances occurred on school grounds. These abusive people were able to get teaching jobs, where they already hold a position of power which can be exploited to take advantage of young students. Imagine how much more power carrying a gun would give those kinds of people. Exploring ways to increase our schools’ security is vital to the issue of school safety. If done right, it may allow our children to learn in a safer environment. However, until Indiana schools strengthen their screening process to ensure that no educator will be a threat to a students safety, we cannot allow teachers to be armed.


Corporations should pay their fair share Matthew Waterman is a senior in jazz studies and theater.

Bloomington City Council has approved a $2.45 million tax break for Catalent, the New Jersey-based pharmaceutical corporation that bought Cook Pharmica in 2017, in exchange for Catalent expanding its local facilities to create 200 additional jobs. This tax break may help Bloomington in the longterm by the substantial increase in employment opportunities. However, it’s part of a larger national trend that’s helping American corporations get away with paying absurdly little in taxes. Local governments are in a desperate competition with each other to attract jobs to their cities. In order to do so, they’re offering corporations cushy tax abatements and other benefits. When it works, the lucky city often does benefit. The

State Rep. Ed Delaney, DIndianapolis, formally asked the House Judiciary Committee to investigate sexual misconduct allegations against state Attorney General Curtis Hill on Feb. 14. Delaney asked the Judiciary Committee to determine, based on the charges, whether the attorney general should stay in office. The special prosecutor did not charge Hill with criminal wrongdoing, the state inspector general’s report contains witness testimony that Hill inappropriately touched four women at a party. Although a special prosecutor cleared Hill of any criminal misconduct, Gov. Eric Holcomb and state Republican leaders called on Hill to resign. However, when pressed on the prospect of taking action to remove Hill from office, senate and house republicans backed off and said they would leave it up to Indiana’s voters in 2020. Most recently, House Republicans rejected a bill proposed by one of Hill’s accusers, Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon, D-Munster, that would have an established a commission capable of removing the attorney general from office. The House Judiciary Committee should open up its own investigation into the allegations against Hill. If the committee finds Hill guilty of wrongdoing, it should begin impeachment proceedings. This is wishful, if not unrealistic thinking given where state general assembly leaders stand. The Judiciary Com-

mittee will not open an impeachment investigation into the attorney general. Indiana Republicans have made that resoundingly clear. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Torr, R-Carmel, said the misconduct occurred away from Indiana state property and was unrelated to Hill’s capacity as attorney general. Further, Torr said that the delegates at the 2020 state Republican convention, not impeachment, would decide Hill’s fate in office. Indiana Republican leaders are consciously deciding to leave a man who allegedly harassed four women, including an elected official, in office because it’s politically expedient. Instead of initiating impeachment proceedings based on the detailed Inspector General’s report, state leaders are hiding behind the special prosecutor’s determination and waiting to see what the voters think. The special prosecutor declined to charge Hill because he felt it was too difficult to prove intent required for a battery charge. In contrast, the Inspector General’s report called out Hill for his “creepy” behavior and abuse of power over female junior staffers. Hill won’t be impeached by the state House of Representatives, but he should be. Republicans will have to make clear in 2020 that they reject Hill. If not, Indiana will have to vote Hill out. Instead of just reiterating empty calls for Hill’s resignation, state Republicans should take action. Delaney’s motion offers Republicans that opportunity, but they refuse to take it.

A NOTE FROM THE EDITORIAL BOARD opening of a new warehouse or manufacturing plant can revitalize a town’s economy. Ultimately, though, the big winners are the corporations. In the process of attracting them, cities are slashing their already-toolow tax rates even further. That $2.45 million in tax relief for Catalent will be $2.45 million in potential revenue that the city is losing. We need that revenue to fund important government programs. Furthermore, this intercity tax break competition seriously disadvantages small businesses. Only large corporations can provide employment opportunities significant enough to entice local governments to award these massive tax breaks. It’s the companies with the least need for tax relief that get it most often. The biggest recent example of this phenomenon was the drawn-out contest

among cities hoping to be the site of Amazon’s second headquarters. Cities across the country bent over backwards to give massive benefits to a corporation that is already one of the most profitable on Earth. Amazon ultimately announced Long Island City, New York, and Arlington County, Virginia, as the locations of two new facilities, only to reverse the decision to build the New York campus this week. In order to win the contest in the first place, the two cities had to offer Amazon a combined $3.4 billion in tax incentives and grants. Amazon pulled out of the planned New York location due to the considerable local backlash driven by fears of gentrification and anger at the unfair benefits given to the company, such as being granted an exception to New York City’s ban on rooftop helipads.

New Yorkers’ protests show Americans are starting to recognize the unfairness of these sweetheart tax deals. But as long as American cities retain the ability and incentive to lure corporations with these deals, they will. That’s why we need national legislation to end this phenomenon. Congress should pass a bill prohibiting cities from offering tax incentives to specific corporations as a way of attracting them. Only federal action can level the playing field nationwide and force U.S. corporations to pay communities the bare minimum of what they owe. Bloomington’s incentives for Catalent may or may not be worth the 200 jobs they’re meant to provide, but it would be best if this deal weren’t an option in the first place.

Then-sophomore, now-junior Pauly Milto pitches for IU against Xavier University during the 2017 season.

Milto’s play on mound vital for IU By Jared Rigdon | @RigdonJared

Pauly Milto was born to lead. From high school to college and every other stop in between, the IU senior pitcher has been dealt high pressure situations and handled them with ease. It’s in his nature. Milto is now tasked with perhaps his toughest leadership role yet. The 6-foot-3-inch veteran arm will be asked to lead a pitching staff that will replace two MLB draft picks, Jonathan Stiever and Tim Herrin, while also facing some of the top teams in the country. “Pauly was born older. God made him different,” IU baseball Coach Jeff Mercer said. “I don’t think it matters if he was a freshman or senior if he threw Friday or Sunday. I don’t worry one bit about his ability to lead a staff.” Milto has been at the center of the IU rotation since he arrived in Bloomington after a successful prep career at Roncalli High School in Indianapolis. As a freshman, Milto went 4-1 in 26.2 innings pitched across 14 appearances. The

next year he cracked the rotation for a brief period, posting a 6-3 record with a 3.92 ERA in 10 starts and 20 appearances. That sophomore campaign ended with him being named third team All-Big Ten and earning IU’s pitcher of the year award. His junior year was where he started to put it all together. Joined by Stiever and Herrin in the rotation, IU found success on the mound. The Hoosiers ranked seventh in the nation for team earned run average while producing eight shutouts on the season. Milto was the anchor of that rotation, going 8-2 with a 2.03 ERA on the way to an All-Big Ten second team selection. Milto would appear to be the clear-cut ace heading into this season, but for now he’s not worried about what role he’s given. He just wants to help the team win. “I’m willing to be in whatever role they need me to be in,” Milto said. “Obviously, being the Friday night starter would be awesome but wherever they need me to be, I’ll go in and do my job.”

Senior catcher Ryan Fineman has been Milto’s battery mate since the two came in together in 2016. The two had an immediate effect on the IU program. Fineman’s confidence in Milto hasn’t wavered even as Milto attempted to navigate his way through the conference’s top talent. “Pauly has always been good,” Fineman said. “He handles pressure well. He’s our No. 1 starter. He’s going to be huge for us as a veteran leader.” The physical tools have always been there for Milto. At the end of high school, he was firing at speeds in the low 90s. The last year or so has been spent more on the analytical aspect of the game. Alongside new pitching coach Justin Parker, Milto has learned to read the hitter and game situations to get a better understanding of what’s going to happen. “It’s just about knowing the game as a whole, being able to understand situations ahead of time,” Milto said. “It’s not so much thinking about it now, it just comes natural.” Milto understands that his pitches will never touch the

speeds that guys like Stiever or junior Tanner Gordon will reach in the upper-90s. However, with his developed approach and the precision that has always impressed teammates like Fineman, Milto’s pitching is perhaps better than his All-Big Ten level last year. “I’m more of a command pitcher,” Milto said. “Breaking several planes and being able to keep the hitter guessing by me knowing which way the pitch is going.” Milto has been instrumental to Mercer and his staff in their first season in Bloomington before ever playing a game. Milto, Fineman and junior outfielder Matt Gorski have set the example for how the IU baseball program is run. “The biggest they’ve done is that they’ve given their support,” Mercer said. “They’ve really been invested into continuing the winning culture and to working hard.” Despite being left out of most preseason polls, Mercer is keeping IU’s morale high. From IU’s fall world series, where the losing captain had to dye his hair green, to their iron man challenge, the buzz around the

program continues to grow. Outlets such as D1Baseball and College Baseball Daily have pegged the Hoosiers to finish in the top three of the conference alongside Michigan and Minnesota. Milto believes there’s no reason the Hoosiers can’t do more. “The vibe is very good. Everyone is very positive, everyone is upbeat, everyone has really bought in,” Milto said. “We’re going to do some special things this year.” Pressure has never fazed Milto. He’s pitched in travel ball tournaments, high school state tournaments and backto-back NCAA Tournaments. His expression and demeanor never changes. Whether it’s his experience, thick beard or deep voice, Milto is the definition of a veteran, one that Mercer will need this season. “Pauly is a guy that doesn’t have emotion,” Mercer said. “He just goes out and has a plan and executes that plan. Whether he’s taking BP before games and hitting home runs or pitching, he’s just unflappable. We have a lot of confidence in him.”

Five Hoosier baseball players to watch this spring season By Stefan Krajisnik | @skrajisnik3

Despite losing key players from last season to graduation or the MLB Draft, IU baseball still has highly respected athletes on the 2019 roster. IU has key pieces ranging from the bullpen to the outfield that could lead the team toward the top of the Big Ten this season. Here are five players to keep an eye on. Matt Gorski — Junior, Outfielder With draft boards already listing Gorski as a top-40 prospect, his junior season could be his final one with the Hoosiers. The 6-foot-4-inch outfielder showed potential to be a five-tool player. Gorski led IU with a .356 batting average along with eight home runs and 40 runs batted in last season. He stole 24 bases, had five outfield assists and zero errors. Gorski’s athleticism was on full display April 25 when he hit an inside-the-park home run at Purdue. In the 5-3 loss to the Boilermakers, Gorski had two hits and a stolen base. Among returning players, Gorski was tied for second on the team in home runs and could be utilized in numerous spots throughout the lineup. IU’s strong top of the lineup card could force pitchers to have to attack Gorski rather than pitching around. Matt Lloyd — Senior, Utility Player IU’s biggest returning power threat produces strength in the middle of the lineup as well as late in games on the mound. Lloyd hit nine home runs

along with 41 RBIs in the heart of IU’s lineup. He added numerous flashy plays in the field while playing first and second base. But where Lloyd showed his full potential was when being used out of the bullpen. Lloyd was the closer for IU last season where he picked up seven saves while having a sub-two earned run average. Pauly Milto — Senior, Starting Pitcher With Jonathan Stiever getting drafted, Milto now

takes the role of the Fridaynight starter for IU. But being a leader is nothing new for Milto. While pitching a 2.03 ERA last season, Milto was also one of the team captains. He picked up two complete game shutouts last season in 13 starts. IU’s roughest stretch last season came when Milto was out with an injury, and without the comfort of a pitcher like Stiever on the team, Milto’s importance increases.

Cal Krueger — Junior, Relief Pitcher Lloyd’s opportunities to pick up saves came in large part due to the dominance of Krueger in the setup role. Krueger, who often came into games during the seventh or eighth innings, pitched a 3.02 ERA last season while also picking up three saves. Krueger saw the biggest workload among relief pitchers with 44.2 innings pitched in 27 appearances.

With Krueger and Lloyd closing out games, IU’s pitching staff could continue to be one of the best in the nation. Logan Kaletha — Junior, Outfielder In the middle of IU’s outfield and top of IU’s lineup card is Kaletha, who surprised many fans last season. Kaletha quickly showed his potential in his first season after transferring from John A. Logan College.

In his third game with IU, Kaletha hit a walk-off grand slam against then-No. 17 University of South Alabama. Despite his batting average falling with a late-season slump, Kaletha still led everyday starters with a .429 on-base percentage. While playing center field, Kaletha had just one error while regularly making highlight plays. Kaletha’s ability at the top of the lineup could create RBI opportunities for Gorski and Lloyd again this season.

IU’s five series to watch By Jared Rigdon | @RigdonJared

As IU baseball’s season is underway, the team will travel from Washington to Tennessee, battling some of the best teams in the nations. Here are five series to watch as the Hoosiers go for their third consecutive NCAA Tournament berth. IU at University of Tennessee — February 22-24 After opening the season against the University of Memphis, IU will return to back to Tennessee to play the University of Tennessee. While the Volunteers went 29-27 a season ago and finished last in the SEC East, the team figures to be much improved this year. Led by junior infielder Andre Lipcius, a .315 hitter last year, Tennessee will provide an early season road challenge for IU. Any wins against SEC teams will help the rating percentage index come NCAA Tournament time. The Hoosiers have a chance to sweep the Volunteers and earn backto-back road series wins early in the season. Safeco Tournament — March 8-10 While it isn’t a three-game series against one team, the Safeco Tournament in Seattle, will pit IU against some of the nation’s top teams in a roundrobin style tournament in early March. IU will play two teams that made the College World Series a year ago in the University of Washington and defending champion Oregon State University. IU will also play a game against the University of San Diego, a team it took three of four from last year on the road. Oregon State is No. 8 in the preseason D1 Baseball poll while San Diego and Washington are consistent powers. The Hoosiers get three chances for résumé-building wins, but the west-coast trip will wear on IU. This trip to Washington will show fans a lot about the leadership and talent of this baseball club. IU vs. Iowa — March 22-24 IU will start with Iowa to open the conference season af-

ter closing out a difficult nonconference slate. The Hawkeyes struggled to find consistency last season but figured things out near the end of the season, finishing 13-9 in conference play and making the Big Ten Tournament. Iowa loses its top two hitters but will look to build on the momentum that they ended with last year. Iowa and IU opened up with each other in conference play last year, splitting a pair in Iowa City in a rain-shortened series. The Hoosiers will need a strong start to conference play as a trip to Maryland follows the opener with Iowa. COLIN KULPA | IDS

IU vs. Minnesota — April 26-28 As classes start to wind down for the year, IU will play arguably its toughest home series of the season. Minnesota comes in as the defending conference champions. After a NCAA Super Regional appearance a year ago, the Golden Gophers appear to have the pitching staff to take them far again. Led by 6-foot-7-inch sophomore Patrick Fredrickson, who was 9-0 with a 1.86 ERA a year ago, Minnesota has one of the deepest rotations in the league. Minnesota embarrassed IU in a three game sweep last year. So, expect IU to come out with a sense of purpose in a series that will have major implications for NCAA tournament chances and the conference title race. IU at Michigan — May 10-12: IU’s second-to-last conference series will have a huge impact on the season as it heads to Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the middle of May. Michigan has made a constant appearance in preseason polls and returns a host of talent from a team that just missed the NCAA tournament a season ago. Michigan returns junior Dominic Clementi, a .368 hitter last season. IU and Michigan didn’t play last year but will get a shot at each other this year as they battle for postseason positioning.

Athletes to watch for track and field By Brady Extin | @BigB_1

With plenty of returning individual Big Ten Champions and NCAA Championship participants, there is an array of athletes to watch out for this season on the IU track and field team. As a team, the Hoosiers saw top-five finishes at the Big Ten Championships during both the indoor and outdoor season last year. At the indoor championships, both the men and women’s teams grabbed third place, and at the outdoor, the men took home second while the women grabbed fourth. This season they’ll look to improve on that mark. These six athletes are going to play a big role in making that happen. Women’s: Maggie Allen — Senior Allen, one of the team’s best distance runners, will look to improve on a season in which she saw high finishes at both the indoor and outdoor Big Ten Championships. Allen competed in two events, the 3,000-meter and 5,000-meter, at last season’s Indoor Big Ten Championships. She finished in fourth and sixth place, respective-

ly. In the outdoor portion of the season, Allen also competed in two events at the Big Ten Championships — the 10,000-meter and the 5,000-meter. She crossed the finish line in third place at both races. After racing in the in the NCAA prelims and finishing fourth, Allen advanced to the NCAA Championships in the 10,000-meter. Haley Harris — Senior Another skilled distance runner for the Hoosiers, Harris saw good finishes at the Big Ten Championships and raced in the NCAA Championships last season. The indoor Big Ten Championships saw Harris compete in the mile, where she took fifth place. She was also a part of the distance medley relay team which took fourth place at the NCAA Championships. On the outdoor side, she grabbed seventh place in the steeplechase, as well as a top-ten finish in the 1,500-meter at the Big Ten Championships. Her top-ten finish earned her a spot in the 1,500-meter at the NCAA Championships where she

finished in 24th place. Kelsey Harris — Junior Harris finished her indoor season by taking fourth place as part of the 4x400-meter relay team at the NCAA Championships. Prior to that, she was the runner-up at the Big Ten Championships in the same event. In the other meets throughout the season, she took home multiple firstplace finishes in events such as the 600-meter, 800-meter and 1,000-meter. She capped off her outdoor campaign by advancing all the way to the NCAA quarterfinals after running a personal best time of 2:03.89.

Kyle Mau — Junior Mau saw almost all of his success in the indoor portion of last season. He took home a firstplace finish in the mile at the Big Ten Championships as well as a 14th-place finish in the 3,000-meter at the NCAA Championships. Mau also saw plenty of success as a member of the distance medley relay team. The team set the stadium record at the Power Invitational last season as well as earning a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championships. To start off this season, Mau and the team have continued their success by setting a new school record in the event.

Men’s Adam Coulon — Junior Coulon is the team’s best pole vaulter, proven by his success last season. In the indoor season, he finished second place at the Big Ten Championships. He concluded the outdoor season with a fifthplace finish at the Big Ten and then a top-ten finish at the NCAA Championships. His height of 5.45 meters at the NCAA Championships was also his personal best.

William Session — Junior Session is a master of all trades for the Hoosiers, evident by the nine events that he competed in at last season’s outdoor Big Ten Championships. The most notable of the nine was the 110-meter hurdles where he qualified for the NCAA Championships. For his efforts at the championships, he earned the Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship award as well as All-Big Ten Second Team honors.

Then-freshman catcher Maddie Westmoreland yells to the outfield in the final inning of IU’s game March 18 against the University of Illinois at Chicago. Westmoreland and teammate Tara Trainer earned Big Ten weekly honors after sweeping Penn State last season.

Westmoreland a key player for Hoosiers By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

Sophomore Maddie Westmoreland has been primarily known as a power hitter. As a freshman, she earned First Team All-Big Ten honors after leading IU softball with 10 home runs and having the secondmost runs batted in for a single season in program history with 52. “Pretty early on she showed power and the ability to drive the ball,” IU Coach Shonda Stanton said. “I would say it was about 1012 games in that you could see that.” In 2018, Westmoreland earned Big Ten Player and Freshman of the Week twice. The only other Hoosier to earn Big Ten Player of the Week honors last season was senior pitcher Tara Trainer, who did it once.

The first time Westmoreland got the recognition was March 26 after IU swept then-No. 18 Ohio State to begin to turn the season around. She had a .429 batting average, 1.429 slugging percentage, seven RBIs and two home runs in the series. The second time came April 23 after IU swept Penn State. Westmoreland had a .857 batting average with nine RBIs, six hits, three runs and two home runs that week. She also had a career-high five RBIs in the series opener. Westmoreland made her presence felt early on as a Hoosier and is now primed to build on that success as a sophomore. “For me personally, I was so driven to make a change here at Indiana,” Westmoreland said. “I think with Coach Stanton here, it’s been awesome to start. I

think last year I was just really into being with the program and changing the face of Indiana softball, making us more legitimate as a program.” Despite the ability to hit it deep, it was her small-ball play that helped the Hoosiers mount a comeback against then-No. 6 Georgia in the 2019 season-opening weekend. Earlier in practice before the season started, Stanton had her team get into groups and coach themselves. Their primary goal was to manufacture runs. Westmoreland’s team put her into an RBI situation during the drill rather than one that would have her want to hit it as hard as she could. Stanton mentioned how after the drill, they told their team that Westmoreland was its best bunter. With IU down 2-0 to Georgia, West-

moreland put that ability to the test. After back-to-back hits by sophomore Grayson Radcliffe and junior Bella Norton gave IU runners on the base paths, Westmoreland then laid down a bunt. It brought in the first run of the game and sparked the offense to eventually score five more runs and take the 6-4 statement victory. “She was seeing some pitches, the first pitch we wanted to jump on in a bunt situation rather than swinging away,” Stanton said after the Georgia game. “It really just opened things up for us. Maddie had a great moment, she executed and owned it.” Stanton didn’t sound surprised by the big play from Westmoreland and that’s due to her reliability in the heart of the lineup last season. This season Stanton ex-

pects Westmoreland to be in that similar position in the lineup, but now other teams are more prepared for the big play from her. In order to adapt this offseason, Westmoreland focused on her bat speed, getting more in rhythm and being ready for more offspeed pitches to come. “I think the really big expectation for myself is to be in the present,” Westmoreland said. “Sometimes you look at your old stats and want to always be better than that but my expectation this year is to go out and have fun. In the offseason, I’ve trained enough to become a bigger hitter and a better player.” After a third-place finish in the Big Ten standings last season and a strong start to the 2019 campaign, IU is expected to be back in the middle of the conversation for another top-4 seed in the

conference tournament. If IU wants to continue building on the success that was found in the second half of last season, Westmoreland figures to play another big part again as a consistent threat in the lineup. As the No. 24 team in the country, the rest of the nation is just now learning how good IU can be. With that, Westmoreland has become a key foundation in how special the Hoosiers can truly be when it’s all said and done. “We as an entire team have proven that we are committed to this team and committed to move forward,” Westmoreland said. “We’re looking forward to getting better and just setting up our expectations athletically, academically and even socially. We really want to impact the community and change IU softball as a whole.”

Five Hoosier softball players to watch this spring season By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

IU softball is off to a hot start in the 2019 season highlighted by a win against then-No. 6 University of Georgia. As the season continues to progress, here are five players to watch as the Hoosiers look to finish toward the top of the Big Ten again. Natalie Foor — Freshman, Pitcher Coming into the season, junior Emily Goodin and senior Tara Trainer were expected to carry a majority of the load in the circle. In the opening weekend, Foor proved that she’s capable of being a solid starter in the circle for IU this season. In two starts against BethuneCookman University and Florida Atlantic University, Foor pitched in 11 innings while only allowing eight hits to go with a 0.62 earned run average. Grayson Radcliffe — Sophomore, Shortstop Radcliffe is in her first season as a Hoosier after transferring from the last school that IU softball coach Shonda Stanton was at, Marshall University. She started in 53 games at shortstop in 2018 for Marshall and had 30 hits with 16 runs scored. Radcliffe started in all five games at shortstop for IU in the opening weekend and had a .400 batting average with six hits and three runs scored. She also had a huge two-run home run in the seventh inning to help IU defeat Georgia.


Then-junior pitcher Tara Trainer pitches against Michigan Friday evening at Andy Mohr Field. Trainer gave up four earned runs and walked five batters in IU’s 5-1 loss to Michigan.

Bella Norton — Junior, Catcher Norton solidified herself as the usual starting catcher her freshman season with a .991 fielding percentage behind the plate. She only has a .211 career batting average but has come up big in key spots for the Hoosiers multiple times. Against Georgia, Norton hit a double to left

center that gave sophomore Maddie Westmoreland the opportunity to bring in a run with an RBI bunt the next play. Gabbi Jenkins — Junior, Outfielder As a second team All-Big Ten Team honoree last season, Jenkins led the Hoosiers with a .369 batting average,

66 hits and 39 runs. She’ll be the leadoff batter for the majority of the 2019 season and primarily is a slap hitter or bunts to use her speed to get on base. She went 6-for-15 in the first five games of the season which included three stolen bases. Her .334 career batting average ranks sixth all-time in program history.

Tara Trainer — Senior, Pitcher As the clear ace for the Hoosiers this season, there’s a lot riding on the shoulders of Trainer for her senior season. Last season, Trainer earned All-Big Ten First Team honors with a 2.64 earned run average, 216 strikeouts and 17 wins. She registered five shutouts

and had nine or more strikeouts in seven games. Trainer picked up where she left off in the opening weekend this season with a 2.19 ERA and 16 strikeouts. She only allowed 13 hits in four appearances. If she has similar numbers to the ones she had last season, Trainer could finish second in program history for career strikeouts.

Effort, religion, waffles lead Michalski to success By Brady Extin | @BigB_1

Daniel Michalski’s life on the track has been a journey filled with both highs and lows. Now a graduate transfer at IU, Michalski’s first taste of track and field didn’t even begin until his senior year at Xenia High School in his hometown of Xenia, Ohio. “Going into my senior year, I decided I was gonna put all my eggs in one basket and try this running thing for real,” Michalski said. He dropped baseball and basketball to focus on track his final year in hopes of proving himself as a legitimate prospect for colleges around the country. It worked. Michalski joined the Cedarville University track and field team to begin his collegiate career. The university, a private Christian school just 12 miles away from his parents home, was a perfect fit for the religious Michalski. “My relationship with Jesus Christ informs so much of what I do and how I approach my decisions,” Michalski said. Whether it was the proximity to his childhood home or his relationship with Jesus, Michalski left no doubt that he made the right decision. He left his mark on Cedarville by becoming the school’s first men’s national champion after winning the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 2017 at the Division II NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon. Along with that, Michalski holds the school record in both the 3,000-meter steeplechase and the 4x800 relay. In his time at Cedarville though, Michalski also suffered two major injuries, one on each foot. In his junior season of cross country, he sustained a tibial stress reaction knocking him out for the whole season. The following year he


Graduate transfer Daniel Michalski owns the Cedarville University records in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and as a member of the 4x800-meter relay team. He graduated from Cedarville with a degree in exercise science, and he is now a member of the IU cross-country team.

sustained a metatarsal stress reaction in the opposite foot, which kept him from competing in track his final season. “I really love this sport, I have a lot of fun with it, and I’ve been successful so to have it taken away really sucked,” Michalski said. “But I was trusting that something good would come of it.” Now, Michalski is the first to say that something good did in fact come of it — an opportunity to continue school and run track at IU. After graduating from Cedarville in the spring of 2018,

Michalski knew he was ready to explore his options as a graduate transfer, so he personally reached out to IU assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Andrew Poore and expressed his interest in becoming a Hoosier. Michalski’s said he was looking for not only a school where runners had developed from good to great, but also a school where he could see himself thriving in academically. In his opinion, IU fit that mold perfectly. “I felt really good about IU after I came here to visit,” Michalski said. “Just a first-

class athlete experience.” Coming off of a major injury like that, finding a school willing to take him on as a transfer was tough, but for IU Coach Ron Helmer the decision to add Michalski was easy. “We saw someone who just wanted to get good,” Helmer said. “He seemed to be a good kid who was very excited about getting better.” But nobody — not Helmer, not his teammates, and not even Michalski himself — knew just how good things would turn out. Now, just a year removed from his

major injury and as a member of the men’s distance medley relay team, Michalski holds an IU school record and the seventh fastest time ever ran on an indoor track in the NCAA. “To get to be a part of the DMR was an awesome experience,” Michalski said. “There’s something really special about doing it as a team.” As much fun and success as Michalski has had on the track, there’s something else he gets very excited about at IU: bacon-infused waffles. One of Michalski’s pas-

sions outside of the sport is cooking. Whether it’s with friends, his girlfriend or his teammates, he loves to cook and try new things. “When I do cook, I like to share it because then you can share the experience,” Michalski said. His love of cooking doesn’t change even when he eats in the athletes cafeteria inside Memorial Stadium. He still manages to find his own unique way of cooking. He takes bacon and lines the waffle iron with it. He then proceeds to pour pancake batter over the top of the bacon. This new creation is something that Michalski said he’s been trying to spread the word on. With the way Michalski’s been running, it may just be the key to his success. With the Big Ten Championships just around the corner and the indoor season coming to a close, Michalski’s looking to end his journey on top. Fueled by both hard work and bacon-infused waffles, Michalski has run qualifying times in multiple events — the 5,000-meter, 3,000-meter, mile and distance medley relay. This gives the coaching staff leeway as to what event he will partake in come championship time. “The goal there is to win as a team and see what I can do as an individual to contribute to that,” Michalski said. Michalski hasn’t taken anything on this journey for granted. He said he’s happy to be where he’s at in his collegiate career and gives credit to God. Before each race, he tries to find quiet time to focus in on the things that matter. “Part of that quiet time is just centering in and humbling myself,” Michalski said. “Acknowledging that God is the giver of the gifts that I have.”

Vikash Singh’s move from India to Indiana By TC Malik | @TCMalik96

Nobody really knew where freshman Vikash Singh would end up when he came to the United States from India just a few years ago. The tennis player bounced around states from Florida to South Carolina but ultimately ended up in Bloomington for the spring semester in January. Singh grew up playing tennis down the street from his home in Koppal, India. He has loved the sport since he put his hands on a racket when he was 7. After a few years of playing for enjoyment, Singh began to play competitively in tournaments when he turned 10, and that’s when he decided this sport could lead to more. “I knew I wanted to pursue my tennis further,” Singh said. “My parents also wanted me to go further with my tennis.” The only problem was Singh’s location. College tennis is almost nonexistent in India, making it close to impossible for Indians to sustain a future in tennis. That is why he ultimately made the decision to move to the United States and leave his family in India at the age of 14. What made this choice even harder was the unfamiliarity Singh was about to enter. Singh said his family never knew anybody who moved to the U.S. for any sport in college.


Freshman Vikash Singh plays against the University of Central Florida on Feb. 8 at the IU Tennis Center. Singh grew up playing tennis down the street from his home in Koppal, India.

So Singh set his sights on a goal he had dreamed of his entire life: to play collegiate tennis in America. “It’s definitely difficult being away from your family for so long,” Singh said. “I try to keep in touch with them and visit as much as I can.” Singh only visits home once or twice a year because of expensive flights. While Singh can travel back to India sparingly, none of his family members have ever been to the States, not even his parents. Singh said he hopes one day his family can travel from India to Bloomington and watch him play a col-

legiate tennis meet for the first time. * * * While transitioning to the U.S. from a foreign country like India is monumental in anybody’s life, all Singh wanted to do was settle in. Singh’s journey began at the Bishop Gates Tennis Academy in Florida. As friendships were made and bonds with coaches were formed, Singh and the rest of the students were informed the academy would be closing the next year. Singh was left alone in a foreign country. This was a truly a turning point in his life.

Singh and most of the students and coaches at Bishop Gates moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, for the Smith-Stearns Tennis Academy. While the transition was easier, it wasn’t as seamless as it could’ve been. Singh had to pack up and move from Florida to South Carolina in a matter of days while still looking for a place to live. This was similar to his experience at Bishop Gates because he had to move in with people he barely knew. It was like moving into college and walking into your dorm room without even knowing who’s going to be

on the other side of that door. He went through that twice in two years. After the move to Hilton Head, Singh really began getting noticed by colleges and offers started to roll in the door, but he had to work for it. Coming from India, Singh was only allowed to play in the International Tennis Federation tournaments because he was considered an international player. This decreased his chance of exposure to college coaches because he wasn’t allowed to play in the bigger tournaments like many of the top recruits in the country. Additionally, college coaches

weren’t able to judge his talent against other top players because they weren’t playing on the same courts. Ultimately, Singh received offers from IU and other colleges in the U.S. because of his involvement in ITFs and connections with coaches through the Smith-Stearns Tennis Academy. When it came time for Singh’s college decision, there was no doubt in his mind that IU was the place for him. “IU really stood out to me,” Singh said. “I really loved the campus and felt like I was really at home.” While his journey from India to IU was long and detailed, his career as a studentathlete in Bloomington has just begun, and his teammates look forward to playing with him. “We’re just excited to see the future with him,” freshman Patrick Fletchall said. “It should be fun.” While Singh continues to get used to his new life, Fletchall said he had no issues getting along with his fellow freshman. “Vikash is a great kid and brings so much energy and fight to the team,” Fletchall said. “It was a pretty easy adjustment.” Singh saw his first action against Middle Tennessee State University on Feb. 1 and led IU to a victory after winning his singles match against Pavel Motl. For the first time in his life, Singh can say he accomplished his lifelong goal of playing collegiate tennis. But this is just the beginning.



Three matches to watch for IU By TC Malik | @TCMalik96

IU men’s tennis will have a tough schedule ahead of them in order to have a successful 2019 season. The Hoosiers will be roadtested on numerous occasions while also facing difficult competition at home. Here are three matches to keep an eye on.


Head coach Ramiro Azcui talks with then-sophomores, now seniors, Madison Appel and Natalie Whalen in February at a match against DePaul. This will be Azcui’s third season as head coach.

Azcui maintains Hoosier excellence By William Coleman | @WColeman08

It’s his third season at the helm of the women’s tennis team, but IU Head Coach Ramiro Azcui has been a part of the program for longer than any of his eight athletes have been alive. Azcui came to Bloomington in 1992 for his first full-time assistant coaching gig. He was an assistant coach for one year at his alma mater, Abilene Christian University, and the same at Baylor University while he earned his master’s degree. Azcui said he knew he wanted to be a head coach around the time of his graduation from Abilene Christian. Azcui got his chance at Truman State University, but it came with a twist: He would coach both its tennis programs. “Very different experience leading and coaching both men and women at the same time,” Azcui said. “But it was fun because I was young, almost as young as the players.” Azcui said this was when he found his passion as a women’s coach because of his personality, but it may have been because his women at Truman State were winners. While the men went 30-24 under Azcui, the women boasted a 42-20 record. After seeing success at his previous schools, Azcui turned around both programs at Truman State to

open up his coaching career. None of those jobs compared to the opportunity he had at IU because of who the head coach was at the time. “Working under Coach Loring, the reputation and work ethic he had, it was a tremendous experience for me,” Azcui said. “His preparation and attention to detail prepared me well to conduct this program.” Lin Loring was an NCAA head coach for 44 years, and he capped off his career at IU in 2016. Then-freshmen Madison Appel, Caitlin Bernard and Natalie Whalen were on the 15-11 squad that concluded Loring’s storied tenure at IU. Loring came to IU in 1977 at the front end of his long coaching career and never looked back. Through 40 seasons in Bloomington, he produced 16 Big Ten titles, 28 NCAA Championship tournament appearances and a 104-match conference winning streak stretching over eight seasons. He ultimately became the winningest coach in D-1 women’s tennis history. Fifteen years into Loring’s storied stretch, Azcui joined him. The two had a similar compassion for the program and stuck together as a coaching duo for 25 seasons. Azcui helped his predecessor contribute to what he now calls the program’s tradition. “The tradition that Coach Loring and I built around

this program, I wanted to be able to come back and continue it myself,” Azcui said. In almost three decades as an IU assistant, Azcui gained national recognition as a coach. He was a threetime winner of the Midwest Assistant Coach of the Year and in 2004 he received ITA Assistant Coach of the Year honors. A resume with 400 wins and five Big Ten titles as an assistant led to various head coaching opportunities across the country, but Azcui never budged. He said turning down those openings was the best decision he made. “I stayed here for a long time so I could have the opportunity to lead this program one day,” he said. Azcui waited patiently and took over the program after the 2016 season. He knew if he wanted the Hoosiers to continue competing at the same level, Azcui would have to take a page or two from Loring’s playbook. “I’ve tried to keep everything similar to how it was with him just because he ran a first-class program,” Azcui said. “I try to do everything that he did and I made a few changes, but I’ll always be keeping his tradition alive.” Out of all these traditions Azcui preserves today, none stand out more than the program’s emphasis on academic excellence. Loring would remind his athletes they came to Indiana to get a degree, and IU’s coaching

staff does the same today. “I never changed anything with that because I think the importance of the players to go to classes and finish their degree and to graduate from such a prestigious institution is definitely a big plus,” Azcui said. On the court, the women’s tennis team continues to excel. In his first two seasons as head coach, Azcui has guided IU to 14- and 17-win seasons. None of Azcui’s success would be possible without assistant coach Ryan Miller. A former student manager under Loring, Miller returned to IU as a volunteer assistant for the women’s team in 2012 and 2014. After his 2014 stint, Miller left for an opportunity at Hanover College, where he’d coach both men’s and women’s tennis, just like Azcui at Truman State. With that and their love for helping players improve in common, Miller and Azcui certainly have a few parallels as coaches. “We share a similar passion with the development of the players because we want them to excel in everything they do,” Azcui said. “I think he’ll have opportunities down the road. In a selfish way, I hope not too soon. I hope he can stay with me for a few years.” In just his second full season as an IU assistant, Miller will have the opportunity to be a head coach some day, but he may just be Azcui’s coach-in-waiting.

March 10 at No. 14 Illinois IU’s first opportunity for a ranked win comes on the road in Champaign, Illinois, against a surging Illini team. Illinois has steadily moved up the rankings since the beginning of the season and will look to give IU everything it has during the first weekend of spring break. March 31 vs. No. 16 Michigan This matchup wouldn’t have seemed that crucial a few weeks ago, but Michigan has since moved into the ITA rankings amid an impres-

sive 5-2 start. A win over No. 18 University of Oklahoma pushed Michigan up in rankings. The Wolverines have continued to improve, reeling off four straight wins since Michigan fell to No. 11 Baylor University. April 21 at No. 2 Ohio State Arguably IU’s most important match comes in its regular season finale. Ohio State has comfortably sat in the No. 2 spot all year long. IU and Ohio State have one common opponent thus far and that’s Arizona State University. The Hoosiers lost to the Sun Devils 4-2, while the Buckeyes dominated en route to a 6-1 win. One disadvantage for IU during this tough stretch of matches is that two of the three come on the road, and IU has yet to win a true road match this season. However, the coaches and players have time to prepare for the talent they will see on the court in conference play.


Four players to watch in conference play By William Coleman | @WColeman08

IU women’s tennis will look for a strong season in 2019, and experienced players could lead the way to success. Here are three players to keep an eye on this year. Madison Appel — Senior Appel has led the way for IU this season at No. 1 singles and doubles. At the beginning of the year, the senior found herself inside the season’s first Oracle/ITA Division I Women’s Rankings for DI individuals. Her mental strength and resilience are always apparent on the court. Appel has showed progression each year, so expect her to come out big as her time at IU comes to an end. Natalie Whalen — Senior Appel’s senior counterpart

plays right behind her at No. 2 singles and doubles. A pedestrian junior year has Whalen motivated to finish her collegiate career off strong, and the numbers show. In 2018, Whalen went 17-16 at singles and 10-10 with her primary doubles partner, then-freshman Olga Zavarotnaya. This season, Whalen is off to an 11-2 start at singles and a 13-4 record at doubles. Jelly Bozovic — Sophomore Bozovic is a dark horse contributor to the the program this season. With seniors Appel and Whalen in the spotlight, Bozovic produces in their shadows. The sophomore already has three wins to her name at singles, where she typically plays in the No. 4 spot. Playing No. 1 doubles with Appel is where Bozovic has really turned it on. The team’s goto pairing is 10-2 thus far.

Junior Emily Powell is the captain of IU’s water polo team. Powell is from Brisbane, Australia

Evolution of IU water polo’s Emily Powell By Jacob Toppen | @JaketoppenSP

Bloomington might just be the perfect place for junior captain of Indiana women’s water polo’s Emily Powell. It’s ironic because Powell, a 20-year-old from Brisbane, Australia, had never heard of IU. “It’s hard at home to play water polo and study, so I wanted to come to the States to play high quality water polo and get a good education,” Powell said. “I don’t even know how I heard about IU, actually. Me and my mom just started emailing schools, and things started happening

from there.” Once Powell received a scholarship to play at IU, she had to start prepping to come to the U.S. by taking the SAT and learning about the training methods. Although it was a lot of work, it was worth it for Powell. “It was an amazing opportunity, and it wouldn’t have been possible without that scholarship,” Powell said. “So it was very rewarding because our family had started that process about a year and a half in advance.” Although Powell looked at other schools including Michigan and Brown University, she didn’t think those schools had what IU had to offer.

“I feel like I did make the right choice with choosing IU,” Powell said. “We still play some of the schools I looked at originally, and I don’t think they have anything on their team that we don’t in terms of culture.” It wasn’t always an easy journey for Powell. She was a much smaller athlete when she got to IU for her first semester. “When I first got here I wasn’t used to the physicality or the jump-in training, so I struggled a lot my freshman year,” Powell said. “I also came straight into season, so I didn’t have that first semester to get used to my new routine, being in America and at a new university.”

And after the struggles, Powell decided to give IU another chance. “I really didn’t think I would make it through, but I’m glad I gave myself another chance and came back for another semester because I would have regretted it if I had left IU,” Powell said. Now in her third season at IU, Powell is a team captain. “It’s been really rewarding,” Powell said. “When I first got here I was really shy and didn’t really know my place on the team, so it’s just been nice to see my development and see myself grow as a person these past couple of years, so it’s been great.”

Powell was honored in January at the IU women’s basketball game with other international student-athletes during halftime. “America celebrates success very well, and it was really nice to be there with one of my best friends on the team who is also an international student from Canada,” Powell said. “It just showed the big step we both took to come to the United States, and it was really nice to be recognized for the hard work we are putting in here at IU as well.” After winning their season opener this year, the Hoosiers have lost their last six games. It’s the first year of Coach Ryan Castle’s ten-

ure at IU that he hasn’t had a senior on the team, “This year we really just want to build a good culture within the team,” Powell said. “We are really new, we lost a lot of seniors last year and we are playing in a new conference with tougher competition, so I think our goal is just working on ourselves as a team and making progress every time we play with each other this year.” Through the struggles and triumphs, Powell’s journey to Bloomington continues to provide results for her team. With two more seasons left, the once shy freshman a long ways from home has made her presence felt in the pool.

IU welcomes new faces to coaching staff this season By Stephen Walker | @VictorOlaSteveo

More than an athlete PETER TALBOT | IDS

Senior Maddie Pierce has been rowing at IU for more than three years. Pierce has helped the team finish in the top five every year at the Big Ten Championships and has been a part of three NCAA Championship qualifying teams. By Stephen Walker | @VictorOlaSteveo

Maddie Pierce has been rowing at IU for more than three years. In that time, she’s helped the team finish in the top five every year at the Big Ten Championships, has been a part of three NCAA Championship qualifying teams and was recently inducted into one of the nation’s most prestigious academic societies. Pierce, a speech and hearing sciences major, will graduate this spring. After graduation, she plans to pursue her master’s degree in speechlanguage pathology. She has twice been named a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Scholar Athlete. She was also inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society. “Being inducted to Phi Beta Kappa was a huge honor,” Pierce said. “There have been many influential people throughout American history who were Phi Beta Kappa

members, so it is very exciting to join such a prestigious organization.” The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded in 1776. Its eligibility requires a 3.85 GPA with 75 hours of coursework in the liberal arts and sciences, or a 3.75 GPA with 105 hours of liberal arts and sciences coursework. “I could not have done it without the help of the IU Athletics Academic support staff,” Pierce said. “I am so thankful that IU Athletics recognizes that we are students before we are athletes and for the academic support that I received from the department during my undergraduate career.” On top of her studies, Pierce has volunteered her time to help people in need. Her freshman year, she participated in the Coach for College program. Coach for College is a service learning program where student-athletes from the United States partner with Vietnamese university students to teach aca-

demics, sports and life skills to disadvantaged children at summer camps in rural Vietnam. She said the trip made her cherish how life is in the U.S. compared to other countries. “The experience was definitely humbling for me,” said Pierce. “It’s amazing that people live like that and it was eye-opening for me to see that I live in such luxury. We have so many blessings over here that we don’t even think about, but at the same time people in countries like Vietnam live their lives without thinking about what we have.” Pierce returned from the trip with a better appreciation for IU and rowing. She gained perspective into how other people around the world live. Pierce started her freshman year in the first novice eight. She helped the team get second in four events, as well as fourth in the Big Ten Championships and 15th in the NCAA Championships.

After her freshman year, Pierce was moved to the second varsity eight. There she won two events and finished second in two others. Midway through the year she got moved up to the first varsity fours. The team struggled after the switch, third place being their highest finish. They did manage to finish first at the NCAA Championship semifinal, before placing 14th overall. Pierce went back to the second varsity eight her junior year and stayed there the whole season. The second varsity eight didn’t have a finish below fifth place, including five second place finishes and a first place finish in the Dale England Cup in Bloomington. In her third NCAA Championship appearance, the team placed 16th overall. While top-five finishes and going to the NCAA Championships every year of her career is something she Pierce said she is proud of, it is her work outside that water that fulfills her the most.

When the IU rowing season begins, the team might look the same, but the coaching staff will look different. The Hoosiers welcome three new assistant coaches to their staff this year: Katie Bitz, Haley Yeager and Emily Fekete. IU has qualified for the NCAA Championships the last five seasons, and head coach Steve Peterson said he is confident these new coaches will keep the team in the national conversation. “I am extremely excited about these additions to our coaching staff,” Peterson said. “All three bring a wealth of successful collegiate rowing experience as athletes and coaches that will have a positive impact on our athletes and team. I can’t wait to get started working with them.” Bitz was responsible for leading the novice rowing program at Michigan State since 2012. She will assume the same role at IU. Prior to coaching at Michigan State, Bitz was an assistant coach with the U.S. National Team for four years. From 2010-11 she served as an assistant coach at Princeton University for the lightweight crew, where the varsity eight finished the regular season undefeated. “She is an extremely competitive and passionate coach, and it shows in the way her crews race and the success they have had,” Peterson said. “I have coached crews who raced against her when she was an athlete and then later as a coach, and I am very happy to finally have her working with me rather than against me.” The 2008 Michigan State graduate earned Academic

All-Big Ten honors three times and won two Big Ten team titles in 2005 and 2008. In 2007 she earned second team All-Big Ten, and in 2008 she achieved first team AllBig Ten as well as first team All-Central Region. “I am most excited about working with a fantastic staff where I know I will learn and grow from each individual,” Bitz said. Yeager joins the IU rowing program to oversee the varsity fours. She joins IU after spending the last three seasons at her alma mater, the University of Washington. She helped lead the Huskies to the 2017 National Championship as well as a runner-up finish in 2018. She was also part of the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Coaching Staff of the Year in 2017. “Working with this team and these athletes is an unbelievable opportunity,” Yeager said. “They work so hard and are hungry to take the next step on the national stage, and I look forward to being a part of taking that step.” Yeager also helped the novice eight at Washington capture the gold medal at the 2017 Pac-12 Championship. Fekete will be a graduate assistant coach and help out with the novice program in her third year in Bloomington. She competed as a coxswain for the first varsity eight before becoming a student assistant coach last year. “I’m very excited to be stepping into this new role with the team,” Fekete said. “It is a great opportunity to be able to work with the novice rowers this season.” Fekete helped the first varsity eight win a bronze medal at the Big Ten Championships two years ago. She was also named to second team All-Big Ten.
