JARED MCCORMMICK Reporter Indiana State’s football team, with the aid of its fans, conquered the Hawks of Quincy University, 707. The Sycamores earned their first victory of the season and first at Memorial Stadium. This also marks head football coach Mike Sanford’s first win and home game of his ISU

career. The Hawks tried to establish their run game early in the competition, but the Sycamore’s defense was able to keep the rush of the Hawks at bay. The Hawks never crossed over the fifty yard line throughout the first half. Indiana State’s offense play

started out slow, but soon gained momentum. Junior quarterback Mike Perish amassed 336 passing yards in the first half, was 19 – 22 and had four touchdowns. Perish also had a rushing touchdown in the first half. Perish’s longest pass of the half was a 78-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Demory

Library celebration has record-breaking turn out JAELAN COLLINS Reporter

More than 5,000 students attended the 11th Annual Cunningham Memorial Library Extravaganza Thursday, and the associate dean of the library said new services and Twitter were contributing factors for

its record breaking attendance. “This year, we had several people tweeting about the event, so word was getting out through new channels,” said Greg Youngen, associate dean of the library. The food has been one of the the most popular elements of the event

for students in the past and Youngen said the record breaking attendance this year caused them to run out of pizza and order more. But Youngen said in order for students to take advantage of the free food they had to get past the resource tables, and the event was a

success. “It went very well, the attendance numbers were great and we received quite a few complements on the event,” he said. “For several students, it was their first visit to the library.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

their first visit to the library.” Students flooded the first floor of the Cunningham Memorial Library to visit tables set up and provided information about different departments and organizations located on campus. Organizations present at the event with this year included: Sycamore Express, the Math & Writing Center, Cup and Chaucer Café with 28 more groups helping to make the event successful. Adriana Salas, a freshman communication major, said the event is a good way for first year students to become familiar with the campus community. “It was the perfect thing for freshmen because the extravaganza gave out a lot of needed information for different organizations and offices on campus,” she said. While junior theater major, Corinne Koller said the extravaganza was a useful resource for freshmen and transfer students. She learned about Ebscohost, which is an online tool to assist students in finding primary or secondary resources to use for their coursework. “I plan on using it [Ebscohost] for class now,” Koller said. Though she enjoyed this year’s event, she had some suggestions for the library she said would be very useful in her studies. “The library [should have] certain sections dedicated to specific majors,” she said. “Because I am theatre major and some of the books I need tend to be on three different floors.”

Shelby Christison, freshman chemistry major, said she benefited from the information tables representing the Office of Technology and the Student Government Association, as well. Many of the tables offered information to students, but they also handed out free items. The Career Center offered note pads, pens, pencils and collapsible water bottles to students, while the college of technology supplied chap stick and color changing drinking cups. Other campus offices raffled out prizes, such as the Office of Diversity which awarded 20 t-shirts to attendees. This year live music was on site outside the library’s entrance instead of a disc jockey, which was used in previous years. The live music was performed by Southland, a band composed of mostly retired, former and current Indiana State employees. The Cunningham Memorial Library Extravaganza started in 2002, with an event much different compared to this year’s event, Youngen said. He said new technology and participation from other campus groups was a contributed factor to draw more students to attend, which would assist them in gaining knowledge of all services and assistance the library currently offers. “Library products and services are continually evolving, we always have something new to introduce,” Youngen said.

More food options offered to serve increase of students in dining halls Emily Starbuck Reporter University dining services and local restaurant proprietors said the enrollment increase has resulted in longer lines, and students say their time is constrained which could lead to consuming unhealthy meals. Dana Babel, first year district manager for Sodexo, oversees business in all food vendors on campus. She said increased enrollment isn’t the sole purpose for the longer lines at each establishment. She has already been faced with incorporating changes into their system. “The lines are existing because we’ve switched some of the ways we do things. We’re doing more foods that are cooked to order,” Babel said.“Moreover, Sycamore carry-out, a new operation, has been quite successful for those students who are in a hurry.” Babel said this fall, Sycamore Carry-out was implemented, giving students the option of purchasing fresh food that is made to order, so

“It takes longer to get my food, so I tend to get less food and more unhealthy food because I just go straight to the pizza bar and then I’m done.” Sean McCool, sophomore Spanish and elementary education major she doesn’t feel they will mind waiting a few minutes to get it. One student, sophomore Spanish and elementary education major Sean McCool disagreed with Babel. Due to his challenged schedule, the longer lines are forcing him to make unhealthier food choices. “It takes longer to get my food, so I tend to get less and more unhealthy food because I just go straight to the pizza bar and then I’m done,” he said. “I just go sit and eat, I don’t look to see what the main course is because there’s not enough time in my schedule.” To adjust to the influx of students, Babel said new seating has been added in the Sycamore dining hall and she has increased employee

availability campuswide to “facilitate better service, faster service.” The dining halls aren’t losing revenue if students decide to eat elsewhere on campus, they have the choice to use different portions of their meal plan, Babel said. The meal plans are pre-bought and act as a sort of “debit card,” Babel said. “It’s really just an allocation of where you’re spending the revenue.” Still, Sodexo has implemented a new food option to students this year, a food truck. Sycamore Sammy’s is a food truck offered to students on campus this year, Babel said.

It will debut at this week’s home football game and will feature sliders, smores and other snacks. She said the goal of the food truck is one way dining services hopes to free up some of the higher volume during their busiest times. It will be available to students in certain locations outside residence halls on Thursday, Friday and Saturday each week during the late night hours. Nonetheless, George Issa, owner and proprietor of George’s Café in the Commons area of Hulman Memorial Student Union said his profit has increased by 10 percent as a result

of the university’s record enrollment this year. And he knows his business will continue to boom as the result of it. The increased business hasn’t caused him to make drastic changes to his menu either, he said. Issa said students are not dissuaded from frequenting his restaurant because of longer lines nor has he been forced to offer a lower quality product to them by preparing food ahead. “It takes less than a minute to get an order out,” Issa said.

Brazilian students visit Indiana State to learn about business, United States’ culture Austin Arceo ISU Communications and Marketing The Brazilian business executives’ eyes locked onto the computer screen, then onto the acronyms scrolling across the stock ticker overhead. Each member of the group had chosen $100,000 worth of securities to invest in, then witnessed the real-world roller coaster of Wall Street judge their investments. The experiential learning activity was just part of a weeklong visit to Indiana State University that covered a wide range of topics, from international business negotiations to motorsports. A group of Masters of Business Administration students and recent graduates from Brazil came to Indiana State to learn more about different business skills and American culture. During the inaugural visit of the International Executive Program, several Indiana State professors and Terre Haute residents led intensive classes, including activities such as the real-time investment project, to help students implement the theories they were learning. The program featured mid-level professionals and executives who wanted to learn more about corporate finance and business principles at an American university. “Most of them are already negotiating with American companies,” said Frederico Galvão, operations director for Empreza, which partnered with ISU and Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), a Brazilian university and think tank, on the executive program. “They have clients here, and everything that is discussed throughout the program is very constructive for them. It’s very important.” Indiana State finance professor Eurico Ferreira collaborated with FGV and Empreza to develop the program and plan the inaugural group’s stay at Indiana State. The Brazilian executives learned about capital budgeting, risk and business negotiation, Ferreira said. “It is sort of a follow-up to the MBA lessons that they are taking in Brazil,” said Ferreira, who taught some of the daylong sessions. “We’re trying to use some basic principles that work here and work in Brazil, while also trying to teach some models that we use here that they’re probably not aware of.” Indiana State professor Jon Hawes, who also directs the university’s Sales and Negotiations Center, taught the group

about business negotiations before they practiced a simulated negotiation on their own. Each person was given instructions, and most groups came up with an agreement that mutually beneficial, Hawes said. “They were very intense students who were very interested in the material,” Hawes said. “I was pleasantly surprised to see people anxious to learn about business negotiations. It was fun for me and it went very well.” Fred Nation, a longtime Terre Haute resident and executive vice president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, talked to the group about the motorsports industry in the U.S. before the group visited the speedway. The group also visited the Vigo County Industrial Park facility of Comphania Siderurgica

Nacional (CSN), a Brazilian-based steel company. “It’s a very compact program,” Paraskevi Bessa Rodrigues, international coordinator of FGV in Brazil, said of the week of events. “We try to offer our students not just additional knowledge, but a different point of view on topics they have already learned about with us at FGV.” Another group is planned to spend a week at Indiana State as part of the International Executive Program in May. Additional classes could visit in the future as well. “We are very honored to have the group on our campus,” Hawes said. “We hope to be able to host and teach similar groups in the future.”

Statesman editorial

Everyone has the right to speak their mind peacefully

Since the start of the school year students and teachers have been confronting a weekly disturbance on campus. The infamous Brother Jeb, and his followers of The Campus Ministry USA, have been near the central fountain facing down students. They have been preaching their version of the word of God and informing students of their very fiery eternity, if they don’t change their sinful ways. This weekly event has become somewhat of a gathering with students either listening to their spoken message on their way to class, or challenging Brother Jeb and his congregation with aggressive, often vulgar, rhetoric. Some students simply stand next to them holding signs, as a stalwart counter- protest

to the other students more aggressive stances. These outings tend to create a lot of ruckus around the fountain with many students taking offense to what Brother Jeb has to say. Students have complained about the organizations disruptive presence and wondering why such a gathering of people are allowed to be on campus. The thing is, no matter how much we disagree with someone, or how much we find them annoying. It is well within Brother Jeb’s right as a citizen of this country, and as human being, to express their beliefs in an open and peaceful manner. We often tend to forget as a country, that everyone has the right to express their beliefs. And that doesn’t just mean everyone that we

like or everyone we agree with. That means their opinion, we also have the right to everyone, from the Satanists to the Jehovah’s express our counter opinion, if you disagree witnesses to the feminists.

Student Success Spotlight

Students embrace the new Math and Writing center

Nicole Bailey Director of the

math & writing center It’s 4:50 p.m., and a group of tutors crowd around the desk of the brand new Math & Writing Center, chatting about video games while waiting for the students with whom they will spend the next 50 minutes. Meanwhile, undergraduates and graduates from a wide variety of majors make their way into the library, following the blue carpet squares to the second floor, where they form a line that extends through the center’s glass doors and to the front desk, where each student quickly slides his or her ID card to check in. As regular visitors recognize their tutors, pairs form at the many tables in the large space. The center is soon abuzz with excited conversation. A math graduate assistant writes a complicated equation on a moveable white board, while a writing tutor helps a student generate topic ideas for her English

105 paper. A group of students in Math 115 work on their homework, getting help from a tutor, or from each other, when they get stuck on a problem. Another consultant explains plagiarism, using an iPad to show her student how to cite in American Psychological Association format on The Owl at Purdue. At the next table over, a young man gets advice on how to better develop the characters in a short story he’s written in his free time. A graduate assistant reclines on the couch, preparing a workshop on how to use semi-colons, while a math tutor rushes off to give a presentation about the center’s services for a class of freshmen. Checking the schedule, a front desk worker notes that all of the next day’s appointments are booked; drop-in tutoring will be popular tomorrow. It’s another day in the center. Despite the fact that this is the combined Math & Writing Center’s first semester, business is booming. In the first two weeks

of tutoring, the center has seen over 420 individual appointments, held a workshop and two training sessions, attended numerous events, and chatted with over 550 students and faculty members during presentations. Already it is obvious that the center will enjoy an exciting year full of new programs, but it is also clear that it will be a year for carefully contemplating the needs of ISU students so that the center can best serve its unique visitors. One thing is certain: students realize that developing the critical thinking skills that come from studying math and writing is crucial to their success, and they are willing to devote time and energy, as much as 6 hours per week, to working with tutors on these skills. If the sign of a great student is knowing when and where to ask for help, then this year’s Sycamores are already positioning themselves to accomplish great things.

Social pressures of alcohol consumption damages futures The other day when I was on Facebook, a man who I am friends with posted a status about public intoxication among the college students at the football game and how he was upset about it. He wasn’t the only adult on my feed to say such things. My first response was, “Dude, it’s a college football what do you expect?” Columnist game, Then I wondered why I would justify that sort of thing in the first place. I’ve always had a problem with the extreme amounts of alcohol consumption that my college peers feel the need to consume. Party over the weekend? They’re drunk. Class midday on Wednesday? Yep, they’re drunk again. This sort of thing isn’t uncommon. According to, four out of every five college students drink, and about half of those who do so binge drink. Media around us glorifies the consumption of alcohol and its

Alice Brumfield

effects. Getting “destroyed” is seemingly more important to students rather than moving up and on to better things, like better personal relationships or better grades. I can’t speak for everyone, not even close.

“When college students get ready for a night out with their friends, they don’t automatically asume that if they drink a certian amount of alchol that they’ll be victims of sexual assault, get in fights, or even die.” I don’t know what sort of alcohol awareness meetings that other organizations put on, but as a member of Greek life here on campus, we are constantly bombarded with statistics that tell us why we shouldn’t have that next drink. We’re told horror stories of things like sexual assault, which according to; 50

percent of sexual assaults are associated with alcohol use. Stories like those of Samantha Spady, who died alone in a frat house in Colorado because she got so drunk that she passed out and choked on her own vomit. And yet, a lot of students ignore these statistics and horror stories, and I know why. It’s because we think it won’t happen to us. When college students get ready for a night out with their friends, they don’t automatically assume that if they drink a certain amount of alcohol that they’ll be victims of sexual assault, get in fights, or even die. They’re just excited for the night ahead. Drinking is a form of hazing. This pertains to all of the students on campus, not just ones in certain organizations. We are constantly hearing the tales that our friends and peers tell us that make it seem like everything is so much more exciting and fun when they’re really drunk. It makes younger people, usually freshman, want to do it a little more because it’s a social activity. Drinking here is the norm, and if you don’t drink, then you’re considered odd. I won’t sit here and say that I’ve never done

it because that would make me a liar and a hypocrite. I did, however, make a very poor decision when alcohol came into play. Over the summer, my casual feelings toward alcohol got me into trouble. Not arrest trouble, but it was bad enough to where I damaged a relationship that I’m not entirely certain I’ll ever repair. I burned a bridge that will never be rebuilt. In the real world, people do care that you’re under 21, and I hadn’t had that reality check in a while. I have now, and I challenge my peers this: go out on a Friday or a Saturday night, with all of your friends, stay sober, and try to have a good time. If you start to think “I’m way too sober for this situation right now,” then I would invite you to rethink some of your ideas. Would you rather be sober and remember the night, or would you rather be remembered as that person who made a fool out of themselves at a party instead. People don’t forget that sort of thing, so protect your reputation and don’t be a complete fool when you drink.

Voyager 1: the silent harbinger of the human race On the night of Sept. 18, a post on Tumblr that exclaimed exciting news for NASA’s Voyager I went viral and caused a lot of excitement. Launched on Sept. 5, 1977, the space probe has officially left the solar system. It has moved onward into interstellar space, the vast emptiness stars. Columnist between When it was launched in 1977, Voyager I was ordained with the task of getting a close up look at Jupiter, Saturn and Saturn’s moon, Titan. The spacecraft dazzled astronomers and space enthusiasts with its imagery of the planets. After its visit to the gas giants, its course was headed to nowhere, straight out of the solar system. The revelation of Voyager’s location has

the scientific community reeling. Calling its one million-mile- a-day voyage as a superb feat that matches and exceeds most human achievements such as the moon landing. Voyager has certainly made truth far more interesting than fiction as its affirmation of the expansiveness of space and the nature of the environment that it is in. This event is extremely beneficial to our knowledge of the universe. However, the question of how Voyager I will benefit us in the future is up for debate, due to the fact that the machine only has a few more years before it shuts off and goes silent. The relevancy of the International Space Station, which many NASA scientists hold as the pinnacle of their achievements, is also being questioned with funding for the station to end in 2020. The United States has spent more than one hundred billion on the station, in addition to yearly maintenance costs that add up to three

billion dollars, and the governments of Japan, Russia, Canada and Europe have spent about the same amount to keep the station in the orbit. The looming 2020 deadline has NASA insisting that the President come up with a plan that will keep the ISS fully functional after 2020, or else it may be deemed as another bridge to nowhere as it may stop operating. Voyager I and the ISS are two examples of the trade off between expensive investment and vast gains in knowledge. But the trade off is certainly worth it. Both projects have since taught space experts on how to approach future endeavors. For example, the ISS was created with the eventual goal of a mission to Mars in mind, while Voyager I has NASA thinking of where to send their next space probe. Although these programs are certainly expensive, learning more about the universe is certainly a priceless mission.

Facts about the Voyager 1: • Two Voyager probes created to examine the Outer Planets. • Voyager 1 was launched on Sept. 5, 1977 from Cape Canaveral FL. • Reached Jupiter on March 5, 1979 and Neptune on Aug. 25, of 1986. • Voyager 1 leaves the Solar System on Sept. 13, 2013 making it the first man made object to reach intersteller space. • Each spacecraft carries a 12” gold record proclaiming a hello to any thing that might find it.

Speaker discusses benefits of cutting meat from meals

Zhane’ Pica Reporter Jane Grimes, an Indiana State alumnus, was diagnosed with scoliosis about 15 years ago. However, as a result of changing her eating habits, she said she has never felt better. “My doctor told me that I had Scoliosis very bad and it was affecting me,” Grimes said. “With changing my diet, I barely notice it anymore.” After cutting meats out of her diet, Grimes said she has more energy throughout the day to go on daily walks and her digestive system has improved. Grimes was one of many who attended a presentation by Neal Barnard, M.D., a health and nutrition philanthropist promoting the importance of a healthy body with a healthy diet, in Tilson Auditorium on Friday as part of the University Speaker Series. “I really believe in eating the way he says,” Grimes said. “It has had an effect on my family members, as well.” For years, Barnard researched the necessary steps to restore the body to better health. As one of America’s leading health and nutrition advocates, a clinical researcher, and author, Barnard said during his presentation that, “Genes are not destiny.” Barnard is the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which promotes preventative medicine through innovative programs. Barnard’s book, titled “21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Health,” was one program he strongly urged many to try during the event. “Be vegan all the time, for three weeks,” he said. “You can’t beat giving it a try.” With this three-week immersion into a healthy vegetarian diet, Barnard said the body will have adjusted its digestive system, gained more energy and become physically healthier. Furthermore, one’s taste buds will start to change. Focusing on the “Power Plate,” which consists of eating fruits, grains, legumes and vegetables, all of which of high in protein, are of great importance to succeeding in this diet, Barnard said, and by substituting the meat out there is no room for fat to build, creating a healthier body. Barnard said several tips that are important to maintaining this diet is avoiding “bad fats,” eating vitamin-rich foods, taking a vitamin B-12 supplement, engaging in some kind of physical activity, getting plenty of sleep and making sure that any medications taken are vital. Often times, people don’t recognize that taking medications, along with a balanced diet, are the perfect combination to a healthy, comfortable and livable lifestyle, he said. The recent passing of Barnard’s father from dementia motivated him to find ways to prevent the illness. His father, who was a doctor as well, worked to cure the diseases of others, but in time neglected to care for himself. His father was Barnard’s inspiration for investigating

preventative ways to reduce the possibilities of Alzheimer’s. “I’d rather die than to have Alzheimer’s, or anything for that matter,” said Dwight Burton, an Indiana resident in response to Barnard’s discussion on the art and science of losing weight. Burton, 85, who at one point believed people needed to eat meat to survive, said he recently discovered the benefits of a vegan diet and is enthused with the results. “I used to be a farmer. I raised hogs to make a living and I used to think people needed to eat meat to survive,” Burton said. “I wish I would have known about this diet sooner. It definitely would have saved me a few trips to the doctor.”

Burton said he was glad he came to hear Barnard speak because it changed his perspective on many things he can now share with his family, friends and even his personal doctor. “You know I actually tried a vegan burger and it ain’t half bad,” Burton said. As they left the auditorium, participants had an opportunity to have their own copy of Barnard’s book signed by the author himself. “Put this to work,” Barnard said at the end of his presentation. “We can definitely revolutionize the world, using healthy diets to transform healthy bodies.”

Mother of 11 kids sees four attend ISU this semester

Jennifer Sicking ISU Communication and Marketing Kathy Garretson stood in her daughter Stephanie Swinford’s room watching as her daughter pulled clothes from her closet and packed them into a lime green tote. She eyed the pile of bedding and pillows on top of another tote near the bedroom door. “Did you just do summer clothes or winter clothes?” Kathy said. “All of them,” Stephanie replied, continuing to pack. “That’s freshmen,” Kathy said with a laugh. With 11 children in a blended family, Kathy has experience helping children pack for college, especially for life at Indiana State University. Of those 11, four of the seven that are currently in college attend Indiana State and two graduated in 2012. The children — all 21st Century Scholars — also earned laptop scholarships from Indiana State, as well as other aid. “We just really like ISU,” Kathy said. “There’s a lot of perks to going there if you’ve got some kids that are going to work for it. If they work hard in high school, I feel like ISU rewards them very well.” Steven Swinford, a graduate of 2012, first enrolled in Indiana State and ran track for the Sycamores. “And his brother followed him and his brother followed him and his brother followed him so they’ve just enjoyed it,” Kathy said. “It was three hours away,” said Shawn Swinford, a graduate of 2012, about the distance from his Peru, Ind., home. “It’s not too big of a school, not too small of a school. It was just the perfect size.” Now Aaron Garretson attends as a senior studying math while Shannon Garretson studies business as a junior. Twins Stephanie and Shane Swinford joined their older brothers this fall as freshmen. “They can always help me out if I get in trouble or just whenever I need them,” Shane said about joining his brothers. Stephanie recalled her brothers’ advice when she decided to enroll at Indiana State. “They were just saying there are a lot of nice people down there and you’ll love it,” she said. She also recalled a certain tradition of which they informed her. “They said you have to run through the fountain to be a Sycamore,” she said. “I haven’t done that yet. I need to

do that.” For the two newest members of the Sycamore family from his family, Aaron said he has passed along advice to Shane and Stephanie for dealing with the chapters to be read, papers to be written and projects to be completed. “You do your homework, put your studying in and you will do well here,” he said. “If they take advantage of the study groups that they have at ISU and the people that are willing to help, they shouldn’t have a problem.” Shannon, who transferred to ISU from Ivy Tech in Peru, Ind., pulled seats out of the family’s minivan to make room to load his brothers’ and sister’s totes, bedding, duffle bags and more for their move to Terre Haute. He acknowledged that he enjoyed having his siblings close. “If we ever need anything or need someone or need help, we can at least have somebody,” he said. “Plus a lot of them know things that I don’t or can tell me where

something is.” On the Friday of move-in weekend, the family climbed into two vehicles and began their journey to Terre Haute following highways the family has come to know well. “Thirty-one to 465 to 70 to 41,” Kathy recited. “Construction kind of stinks, but that’s been going on since 2007 when we took the first one down there.” After the family moved Stephanie into Blumberg Hall and she made her bed, Aaron, who spent the summer in Terre Haute, appeared in the doorway to the family’s delight. He helped move Shane into the newly renovated Erickson Hall. Aaron said the 11 children grew up spending a lot of time playing together, which developed a close bond among them. “It’s harder to deal with them being far,” he said. “I think about my other siblings that didn’t come here. I think about them a lot.”

Sycamores compete in first dual crosscountry meet in years

Craig Padgett

ISU Athletic Media Relations Men’s cross-country It has been 31 years since the Sycamores had competed in a dual meet, but they came out strong against the number seven team in the nation, Wisconsin. Although the Sycamores lost to the Badgers, 2536, sophomores John Mascari and Taylor Head were able to place first and second at the meet held at the LaVern Gibson CrossCountry Course. “I thought today’s meet was exactly what we needed as a team,” said Head Coach John McNichols. “Wisconsin did us a huge favor by coming down and they also ran the race to the feel of the course, which kept their guys together. We told the bulk of our team to run behind them as long as we could and we did that. Also, today we had to let John open up and time trial, which showed he’s extremely fit.” Mascari’s time of 24:31.3 was the fastest time by a Sycamore ever at the Gibson Course, beating David Birke’s time of 24:34 from 1997. “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do today. I got to the 1k and decided to make a time trial of it,” Mascari said. “I thought the team ran really well today. Taylor was moving up and so was Tristan, so overall I thought it was a good show from us.” Following Mascari was Head in second with a time of 25:10.9. “We knew Wisconsin would be really fast so we ran with them for about 5,000 meters,” Head said. “We assumed they would make a hard push, but when they didn’t, Tristan and I decided to make a move. They eventually got us back, but I was able to make one last push with 500 meters left to get second.” Junior Tristan Selby ended up tenth in 25:21.5, freshman David Timlin was 11th in 25:35.1, sophomore Gabe Ocasio was 12th in 25:59.7, freshman Andrew Kump was 13th in 26:11.9, sophomore Jimmy Charles was 14th in 26:36.8 and junior Bryan Horsman was 16th in 26:51.7. “It was a nice effort today and I think everything worked out like we wanted,”

McNichols said. Women’s cross-country The Indiana State women’s cross-country team faced the University of Wisconsin in a dual meet at the Sycamore Invitational, which ended with a 15-50 win for the Badgers. “I think the challenge was bit too much for us,” said Head Coach John Gartland. “Coach Stintzi of Wisconsin ran about two-thirds to three-fourths of what would be his A-team. They were talented and strong up front. Jess and Nicole were able to hang with them for a bit, and Nicole finished with their group.” Junior Nicole Lucas was the first runner for the Sycamores and placed ninth overall in a time of 18:44.9. “I’m happy with my race today, it was

my fastest time on this course in college,” Lucas said. “I think we hung in there with the Wisconsin pack well.” Following Lucas, senior Jessica Zangmeister was 11th in 18:58.4, senior Leeann Michl was 13th in 19:33.6, senior Kalli Dalton was 14th in 19:37.8, freshman Sydney Dickerson was 15th in 20:09.2, junior Lindy Jones was 16th in 20:11.2, freshman Natalie Nolting was 17th in 20:22.7, junior Amy Hicks was 18th in 20:44.0 and freshman Alethia Marrero was 19th in 21:01.9.

“If it were not for them performing the way they did, I would not have been able to do what I did,” Perish said. Senior running back George Cheeseborough rushed for 72 yards, had one touchdown in the first half and ended with 77 yards and two touchdowns all-together. The Sycamores gained 432 yards of total offense in the first half and held the Hawks to 96 Yards of total offense. At the end of the game, the Sycamores posted 671 yards of offense and held the Hawks to 249 yards. The Sycamores went into half time with a lead of 42 – 0 and continued to push their momentum into the second half.

“Winning is a byproduct of doing things right.” Mike Sanford, ISU head football coach The Sycamores quickly scored off of a Cheeseborough run to begin the second half. Late into the third quarter would mark the first time the Hawks would get to their side of the 50 yard line and they even made it to the red zone. Their momentum was crushed, however, after a Hawk fumble in their end zone that was recovered by the Sycamores. Indiana State turned around and converted the turnover into points when junior quarterback Rob Tonyan Jr. passed to junior wide receiver Berry Justice. The Hawks next offensive drive ended in an interception for a touchdown by the Sycamore’s sophomore linebacker Jess Harris. Indiana State proved that they are developing the next generation of Sycamores as well, as their junior quarterback Tonyan Jr. rushed in for another score in the fourth quarter. The first and only time the Hawks would see the end zone would be a rushing touchdown from freshman fullback Jared King with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Sycamores ended the game in the victory formation after a 32-yard run by freshman running back Tyler Evans. Perish finished the contest with the fourth most passing yards in a single game in school history. Perish completed 23 out of 26 attempts for 379 yards. The football team knew that they needed to capture a victory in this contest. They are heading into a bye week and the next time they will take the field will be Sept. 28 heading south to take on Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, Tenn. Sanford said after the Sycamore’s victory “Winning is a byproduct of doing things right.”
