After receiving $65,000 from the Black Hawk Gaming Association, University of Northern Iowa students are continuing the UNI Campus Trails Project by creating a natural tread trail along the university branch of Dry Run Creek, north of the UNI-Dome. Students in Managing Recreation Impacts in the Natural Environment — a course in the department of leisure, youth and human services (LYHS) — are working under the direction of associate LYHS professor Kathy Scholl to build a natural tread trail on 40 acres along the creek on the west side of campus. “I am passionate about this project because I think that it is nice to have places on campus that people can go to relax and get into the outdoors without having to drive, and a place where they can jog or walk (or) a place where they can have a break from being inside or on pavement,” Scholl said. “That is one (reason for the project) — just to enhance outdoor recreation and physical activity for students, but also to increase sustainability and improve the natural environment by protecting the watershed.” Scholl obtained funding from the Black Hawk Gaming Association by using designs from past student proposals and affiliation with the city of Cedar Falls. The students in the LYHS class designed plans for the trail and are now helping construct it. Emily Hanson, senior LYHS major, said her role on the project is to “remap the trail and work on the turnpike,” which is “a section of the trail that goes over wet grass” and is made out of rock and soil. Students are also helping create a creek crossing. “My favorite part of the project is being < See TRAILS, page 3

University of Northern Iowa students in the leisure, youth and human services course Managing Recreation Impacts in the Natural Environment are creating a natural tread trail on 40 acres along the university branch of Dry Run Creek. The trail is part of the UNI Campus Trails Project, which began in 2005 with the creation of the South Campus Trail (pictured above).

“It may be called the Forgotten War, but the Korean people have not forgotten it.” -Republic of South Korea’s Chicago consulate Jin-hyn Lee

South Korean government honors American veterans ALAN WILKINS Staff Writer

Representatives from the Republic of South Korea’s Chicago consulate commemorated more than 300 Korean War veterans on behalf of the South Korean government at the University of Northern Iowa’s Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on Oct. 13. “It may be called the Forgotten War, but the Korean people have not forgotten it,” said Jin-hyn Lee,

a representative from the Republic of South Korea’s Chicago consulate. The Korean War Veterans Association helped host the Korean War Peace Medal Presentation, which took place in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the Korean War. The presentation consisted of speeches, the Korean and American national anthems, a video from the South Korean government, a presentation of the medals to veterans and Korean-American students

singing. “The Korean government and people want to express gratitude to Korean War veterans for their service and sacrifice during the Korean War,” Lee said. “That’s why I came here to present (the) Ambassador for Peace (medals) to Korean War veterans.” The Korean War occurred from 1950-1953 and claimed almost 37,000 American lives. The conflict arose when North and South Korea were still one country and Communist Russia occupied the north,

while U.S. forces occupied the south after the end of World War II. “I think that almost 100 percent of (the veterans) are very thankful of being recognized after 60 years,” said Sid Morris, chairman of the Tallcorn Chapter of the Korean War Veterans Association. “They understand how important their efforts were … They (South Koreans) are free people — just north of the 38th parallel they don’t have freedom.”

Get ready to vote and get to know local candidates JAIME YOWLER NISG Director of Governmental Relations

Since Sept. 27, citizens have had the opportunity to get out and vote early. Voting is one of the few ways we have to directly impact our democracy. Here are some more early voting dates: • Oct. 19 in the Redeker Dining Center Room 009 from 12p.m.-6 p.m. • Oct. 23-25 in Maucker Union from 9a.m.-3 p.m. • Oct. 24 in ROTH second floor conference room from 12 p.m.-6 p.m. • Oct 25. in Campbell Hall Main Lounge from 12 p.m.-6 p.m. • Oct 25. in Towers Dining Center from 12 p.m.-6 p.m. • Oct 27. at College Square Mall from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. If students have already registered to vote, they need only bring the voter ID they received in the mail and, just in case, a photo ID. If students have not registered to vote, they should bring their driver’s license or have the last four digits of their Social Security number to register at the

able to say that I took part in something that can have such a positive impact on the community and university, but have the smallest impact on the environment as possible (given the budget),” said Jordon Altenhofen, a senior earth science major. The UNI Campus Trails Project began in 2005 when the Prairie Preserves Committee wanted to put a trail on the south side of campus. The committee worked with Scholl, who had her classes help create almost five miles of natural tread trail, known as the South Campus Trail. “(Back in 2005), there was a need for some of the trees in the upland forest to be thinned, so by putting a trail in, that would mark what trees needed to come out,” Scholl said. “From there it grew because there (are) spaces on

polling location. In Iowa, sameday registration is available at the polls on Nov. 6. University of Northern Iowa students voting in Black Hawk County have the chance to choose who will represent them in three local districts in the Iowa legislature. In Senate District 30, the incumbent  is Democrat Jeff Danielson. Sen. Danielson grew up in Cedar Falls and received a master’s degree in public policy from UNI. He is a firefighter in Cedar Falls and has been teaching political courses at UNI since 2006. Sen. Danielson believes in boosting Iowa’s economy, good education, energy and the environment, and a balanced budget for a better Iowa. Republican Matt Reisetter is challenging Danielson. Reisetter was raised in Cedar Falls and credits his father Tom, who served the Cedar Falls School Board for more than 20 years, for his interest in politics. Reisetter received a B.A. in science from UNI in 1998. Reisetter owns a consulting

campus that aren’t being utilized, so we can utilize them by having a nature trail.” The creek crossings for the west campus trail will be built by next spring, but the project won’t necessarily end there. According to Scholl, they may try to create more nature trails or link the trails “so they go nearly all the way around campus.” “As we continue to develop the trails on campus it will add things, like students will be able to use it for things like 5K run events,” Scholl said. “As more people use it, there will be more ways for students to help take care of it as well as enjoy it.”

firm, SDG Solutions. Reisetter believes in creating better jobs in Iowa, equal funding for UNI, smaller government and the very best education possible for everyone. The House District 59 incumbent is Democrat Bob Kressig. Rep. Kressig attended UNI for a postsecondary teaching license and is a 31-year employee of John Deere. He has served in the Iowa House of Representatives since 2004. Kressig believes in using state resources to promote high-quality and good-paying jobs for Iowans, expanding tuition grants for students, reducing the property taxes for local business without shifting the burden to homeowners, promoting clean energy and a good education for every Iowan. Republican Jim Kenyon is challenging Kressig. Kenyon has owned a Cedar Falls veterinary clinic for 30 years; there, he employs nearly 50 UNI students. He is a 19-year member of

the Cedar Falls School Board and past president of the Friends of the University of Northern Iowa Museum Board. He also awards a scholarship to a science major every year. Kenyon believes in less government spending, reliable and accountable incentives for businesses that lead to job creation, the Iowa Right to Work Law and not wasting taxpayers’ dollars. The incumbent for House District 60 is Republican Walt Rogers. Rep. Rogers has lived in Cedar Falls for 32 years. He has served in the Iowa House since 2010 and has already been elected to be assistant majority leader. Rogers attended UNI and received a B.A. in technology with emphasis in manufacturing and management. Rogers believes in a smaller, smarter government, responsible and transparent state spending, returning Iowa’s education system back to number one, letting teachers teach with the goal to

reduce the load on teachers and administrators, and a balanced budget. Democrat Bob Greenwood is challenging Rogers. Greenwood is a lifelong Iowan and 35-year resident of the Cedar Valley. He has served as a Waterloo City Councilman At-Large since 2001. He is a pharmacist and owner of Greenwood Drug Inc. in Waterloo. Greenwood believes in providing a quality education and investing in world-class schools, getting back to the basics by rewarding hard work and providing education to our future leaders, and creating good-paying jobs in Iowa.

Whether one takes advantage of early voting or one chooses to head to the polls on Nov. 6, get out and vote. Election Day is less than a month away.

The right’s war on facts


­­ think we’ve all noticed that as the election has heated up, many politicians’ definition of the truth gets a little sloppy. Facts, it seems, become whatever they and their constituents just want to be true. Neither party is entirely blameless here, but one party this year deserves an award for outstanding achievement in lying. And let’s be clear – there is no room here for false equivocation – the two parties are not the same in this regard. I can’t speak for history, for what was once the case, but this year the stakes are higher and the lies are bolder. And the trouble is that people are eating it up. So let’s go over some of the year’s most egregious offenses. There’s a joke about social conservatives and small government: “Republicans want government to be just small enough to fit in your vagina.” If you take offense to that joke, look no further than HF2033, legislation proposed by Iowa representative Walt Rogers. After narrowly losing his race in 2008 against local incumbent Jeff Danielson, in 2010 Rep. Rogers ran in Iowa’s 20th district and won. In 2012 he submitted legislation that gives women the “option” to view and hear a description of an ultrasound of their fetus before choosing to have an abortion. The only problem? The law doesn’t give women the option not to have the ultrasound probe inserted into their vaginas. Many would consider forced insertion like that rape, but that’s just an inconvenient fact, disregarded by social conservatives perhaps because they feel the government can’t commit legitimate rape. Or take for example a proposal this year from Republican 42nd District Rep. Kim Pearson, HF2298: “Any person who intentionally terminates a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person, where death of the fetus results, commits feticide. Feticide is a class ‘A’ felony.” Rep. Pearson would like abortion to be punishable by up to life in prison. Of course Roe v. Wade makes laws like this unconstitutional, but that’s an inconvenient fact that is lost on social conservatives. These bills aren’t alone: in the past three years, the Iowa legislature has seen more than a dozen bills proposing unconstitutional limits on

abortion or variations of Walt Rogers’ bill. Four were proposed just this year, and the legislative session isn’t even over yet. Simply put, if you’re a woman, you should vote Democrat. If you care about women’s issues, you should vote Democrat. And those are just two bills proposed in the Iowa legislature in the past year – bills that were blocked by Democrats. And yet conservatives’ backward views and selective recall of facts isn’t limited to the Iowa legislature or even to women’s rights. This has been a particularly bad year for the truth in our nation’s legislative history. U.S. Representative Todd Akin in our neighboring state of Missouri believes women lie about being “legitimately raped” and that many women are getting abortions despite not being pregnant. Rep. Steve King of Iowa’s 5th congressional district defended Todd Akin amidst this scandal, and further believes we should not criminalize dog fighting because it’s akin to boxing. He said to do so would “elevate animals above humans.” Rep. Jon Hubbard of the

Simply put, if you’re a woman, you should vote Democrat. If you care about women’s issues, you should vote Democrat.

Arkansas state legislature has described slavery in America as a “blessing in disguise.” U.S. Representative Paul Broun recently said on video that the earth is 9,000 years old and that evolution and the Big Bang are “lies straight from the Pit of Hell.” Whatever you feel about the state of the Presidential race, if you believe in facts, reject the current roster of Republicans down the ticket. And if you’re a conservative and you’ve read this far, you know that you have to reject this year’s Republican candidates – your party has abandoned reality, and they have abandoned you.

Consumerism, sincerity and integrity in politics Consumerism is both a social and economic force in our world today. It influences everything from the food we eat to the clothes we wear, from the things we want to how we think. Consumerism has even invaded politics in the way election propaganda is run and the way political events are covered by the news. Consumerism is a result of one group of people telling others what they should think and do. Consumerism stands largely in contrast to sincerity, integrity and critical thought. Sincerity means a genuine, pure intent. Integrity means keeping your word, expressing and acting on your beliefs and also being whole. Critical thought takes place when an individual chooses to consider all of the information being presented to him or her, searches for any missing information and evaluates the truth or falsity of said information (hopefully to be followed by some form of action). With consumerism, a seller will try to convince you to buy into a particular product or idea because it is absolutely the best — whether or not that particular thing really is the best. Information that is disclosed can be effectively “hidden” by presenting the information in very fine print or in a rapid spiel. This insincere seller will not tell you the whole truth; if you want the



whole truth you will have to find it yourself. A seller may also have low integrity, in that they will change what they say, so long as they can convince you to buy their product or agree with their idea. This results in a lack of a cohesive whole — a whole that, if known, could bring about very different thoughts and actions. One of the most visible examples of a consumeristic society is in the year leading up to national elections. The advertisements either imply or outright state that a political opponent is flawed or incompetent. Every news source presents its own biased viewpoint, usually while attempting to claim impartiality. As Sanjay Sanghoee wrote in a Huffington Post blog last week, “… The purpose of news itself seems to have morphed from keeping the public informed to shaping public opinion.” If the purpose of news truly has changed, it results in a huge display of insincerity from the news outlets, in that they claim to be unbiased while not only displaying a bias but also trying to convince others of it. It also destroys integrity in that it

presents incomplete information. These both contribute to a severe case of false dichotomy, the idea that only two options exist and they are in opposition. If more information were available, or presented, one might see that both options have some valid points, and that some other options are available. Several resources for those who want to better inform themselves are available, such as the Center for Public Integrity at, the Tampa Bay Times Politifact site at or the fact-checking that numerous media outlets performed during and after the presidential and vice presidential debates. As it is, insincerity and lack of integrity are a problem that can be countered by critical thinking. The real problem is the lack of willingness to think critically, to seek out necessary information and make a choice for yourself, not rely on another’s judgment. Learn more about the situations in the world around you, and learn to think for yourself (having discussions helps), then make your own decision about each situation.

H8ers g0nn@ h8, bro In all probability, another columnist or I have already tackled the issue of trolling. Regardless, I got nailed by a troll the other night and I’m sounding off because, to be honest, I’m on a major adrenaline rush off this scumbag. Let’s take a little trip across the gruff. Trolling, or cyberbullying as it’s more formally known, is a recent phenomenon owing its existence to the prevalence of social media. It has become a serious issue, especially in a developmental sense. According to, more than half of all youth experience cyberbullying; 10 to 20 percent of them experience it on a regular basis. There is no real way to combat it, either. The Men in Black protect us from the scum of the universe, but we have to defend ourselves against the scum of planet Earth that collects in the Internet snot-rags. Now, it is probably more than obvious that this has me relatively riled up, so I will try to maintain my cool. As someone who repeatedly puts himself out into the public arena through video, radio and print, I am constantly on the brunt of criticism and harsh words. I am pretty “small-time,” as one might say, so my encounters with trolls are somewhat limited. Regardless, it hurts every time it happens and no one really knows what that breath-stolen feeling is like until they have


experienced it themselves. What is truly disgusting is that people who experience bullying in their formative years are two to nine times more likely to commit suicide, again according to I only experience this stuff every once in a while, but to think of those who are on the constant receiving end, my heart bleeds for them all. It really makes me want to reach out to anti-bullying groups and heck, I only experience it once in a while. I wish I could tell all those affected by bullying how I deal with it. After all the pain and hurt, eventually I find bullies and trolls to be the biggest egoboosters on the face of the earth. I’m comfortable enough with myself to get a big laugh at their pathetic attempts and these experiences typically make me value what is important and count my blessings. That is the message I want to spread to those affected by bullying and hate. Anyone who takes the time to be that abrasive has their own issues that are being reflected off you like a mirror. You will always be better than a bully or a troll. You have things in life that you value.

Alpha Delta Pi hosts second annual ‘Pie an ADPi’ for Ronald McDonald House Charities

Erin Bracey, left, a junior family services major, and Kendra Coffin, a sophomore crimonology major, are pied in face. “Pie an ADPi” benefited the Ronald McDonald House Charities.


On Wednesday, Oct. 10, the Alpha Delta Pi (ADPi) sorority held its second annual pie throwing event to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The charities provide a homelike environment for the families of critically ill or injured children who must travel to fulfill their medical needs. Ronald McDonald houses serve as a place for families to remain close to their hospitalized children without having to spend money for a hotel. The ADPi event was led by Kayla Cohrs, an elementary education and

early childhood development double major. She is the ADPi philanthropy committee chair at the University of Northern Iowa. Cohrs described the event as a pie-throwing bake sale with all the proceeds going to RMHC, which is the main charity of the national philanthropy of ADPi. She also went on to point out that the pie throwing was chosen partly because it went well with the name of the sorority. Cohrs said that all the baked goods sold at the event were made by the women of the sorority and that they got most of their ideas from Pinterest. According to Cohrs, this was the second time ADPi hosted the event.

However, they did not throw actual pies either year. Cohrs recounted how they had used paper plates covered in whipped cream last time, but when the smell afterward was less then pleasant, they switched to shaving cream this year. Participants paid a freewill donation ranging from $5 to $20 to throw a pie. The amount of the donation determined the distance from which the participant could throw their pie. For a $20 donation, they were allowed to mash the pie directly in the face of an ADPi member. Edward Hee IV, a political science major, remarked that he had first been attracted to the event by the baked

goods. He also stated that he was happy to see the proceeds go to a good cause and a well-known charity. Hallie Cook, an English teaching major and a member of ADPi, noted that all the girls in the sorority pitched in to set up the event and bake. She affirmed that the organization, planning and staging of the event had gone very well. Cook reported that all the pies they had made for the sale sold out faster than they had expected. Cohrs said she was very happy to see the sorority members and members of the community come together to pull off the event.


Hispanic Latino Student Union hosts quinceañera dance BRIAN FREESE Staff Writer

Last Friday night, the Hispanic Latino Student Union (HLSU) held a mock quinceañera for its members and interested students in the Commons ballroom at the University of Northern Iowa. Traditionally, a quincea-


ñera is a coming-of-age celebration for 15-year-old girls in Hispanic and Latin communities. As Breena Bakey, a sophomore business major, explained, “There is a big ceremony in a church where they give you a ring and bless it. Afterword, there’s a big party and you dance the night

away.” Joslyn Aldape, a sophomore marketing and Spanish double major, added, “A quinceañera is like a wedding, but instead of a bride and groom, there’s a quinceañera. Normally there’s a five-course meal. She would have a court, 14 damas, which are the girls, and 14 caballeros, which are

the guys.” “You get to hear music of all kinds, and there are a lot of family and friends who come out,” Claudia Gonzalez, a junior communications major, said. Instead of a five-course meal, however, the HLSU provided fruit, meat trays, cucumber sandwiches, tortilla chips,

cookies and cake. Students, whose outfits ranged from high heels and formal dresses to flats and jeans, danced to traditional Latin music as well as “Sexy and I Know It,” “YMCA” and “Gangnam Style.” Partway through the event,

QUINCEAÑERA continued from page 6

Fernando Calderón, assistant professor of history at UNI, spoke briefly about the history of the quinceañera. “If you were to trace the origin of the quinceañera, it actually began as a tradition in the Aztec communities, in which the 15-year-old females would go from adolescence to adulthood. “In modern times, the concept of quinceañeras is completely different,” Calderón continued. “Families take out new mortgages to fund the quinceañeras for their daughters.” “There’s a tradition of having a big doll, which kind of represents having your last Barbie. In my culture, from El Salvador, I was supposed to wear a pink dress, but in most other cultures the dress can be any color,” Bakey added. There are many different quinceañera-related traditions, depending on what

page 7

country the quinceañera is being held in, according to Aldape. “There’s all sorts of ceremonies that go on. I did the changing of the shoes. I was wearing flats until my dad popped a balloon and changed me into heels. It’s supposed to be the first time you wear heels,” Aldape said. The HLSU, established in 1971, is open to anyone interested in learning about Latin and Hispanic culture. “We have a meeting every week; it’s at 6 (p.m.) at the Union. You don’t have to be Hispanic to join; everyone is welcome,” Bakey said. Additionally, the HLSU puts on other events throughout the school year. “In the spring we have (a) Latino ball. It doesn’t have the same meaning as the quinceañera; it’s just an event for us to relax and listen to our own music, because when we go to clubs here, it’s not the same music we listen to on our iPods,” Aldape said.

Get ready for your close-up This past week, I was interviewed for the UNI-TV student-produced news program about the work that I and others are starting to undertake to establish a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender center here at the University of Northern Iowa. It was an honor, and it got me thinking about all the many active and ambitious students on UNI’s campus who are making positive change, becoming leaders and making news in our area. For you go-getters, there will be plenty of moments when you will be interviewed for television or have your picture taken by reporters, so I thought I’d share some tips on making your beauty translate to mediated form! • Makeup: Under the lights of a TV studio or the flash of a camera, shine and discoloration are magnified. Wearing a fairly thick foundation and making sure to finish with a powder can help keep you matte. Film is also incredibly forgiving to contouring and more dramatic sculpting makeup effects; in person they look obviously artificial, but translated to film under the lights they look like natural definition. Sculpt by applying a bronzing powder under the cheekbones, on the temples and on both sides of the rim of your nose and blend, blend, blend. Avoid dramatic eye


makeup or lipstick: it can take the attention away from your words. • Masculine-identified folks can wear makeup, too. If you don’t want anyone to know you are wearing it, the key is to focus on light applications of concealer and foundation rather than telltale makeup like mascara, eyeshadow or lipstick. If done well, you will look like you have naturally eventoned skin. • Hair: Keep it simple, clean and off of your face. For my interview, I went without product and blow-dried my hair for a soft, natural look that didn’t distract from my message. • Style: I’m a fan of wearing muted colors in wellfitted, natural cuts when in front of the cameras. You look good without looking like you are trying too hard, and again, your look doesn’t distract from the real purpose of your presence: the cause you are promoting. Wearing shirts with an open collar draws attention up to your face. I wore a dark grey button-up shirt and dark wash skinny jeans for my interview and it worked as a professional, yet casual, understated look. • Confidence is powerful: Looking good (and knowing it) will make you that much more comfortable under the camera. Bask in the limelight, have fun and look great!

Turnovers cost Panthers, drop 4th straight 34-31 RILEY UBBEN Sports Writer

pass and Hagan buried a goal to give UNI a 1-0 lead in the ninth minute of action. UNI’s Kiki McClellan scored on a corner kick in the 34th minute to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead they never relinquished. Illinois State got on the board in the 55th minute of action and continued to attack the Panther goal. The Redbirds outshot the Panthers 18-4 during the match. However, strong defense by goalkeeper Erin Zaideman

The University of Northern Iowa football team fell to the Southern Illinois University Salukis 34-31 in Carbondale, Ill., Saturday afternoon. Turnovers were a key factor in the outcome as the Panthers lost three fumbles that turned into 21 points for the Salukis. The Panthers (1-5, 0-3 MVFC) jumped out on top early with the rushing attack from redshirt senior running back Carlos Anderson and redshirt sophomore running back David Johnson. Johnson ran for 52 yards on the Panthers’ second play of scrimmage, which led to an Anderson 5-yard touchdown run. “We came in here looking to improve our running game. I felt we could block these guys; I felt we could move the line,” UNI head coach Mark Farley said. Redshirt freshman quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen led the Panthers on a threeplay, 86-yard drive that was capped off by a 76-yard touchdown pass to redshirt sophomore receiver Brett LeMaster. Kollmorgen’s only touchdown pass of the day gave the Panthers a 21-6 lead early in the second quarter. The momentum swung SIU’s way when they blocked a punt that was returned for a touchdown with 7:40 left in the second quarter. “We had a lot of momentum and a lot of good things happening. The blocked punt really triggered a lot of things,” Farley said. That was not the last nonoffensive touchdown for the Salukis as junior linebacker Bryan Presume returned a David Johnson fumble 100 yards for the score later in the second quarter. The Saluki touchdown would knot the game at 21-21 heading into the locker room for halftime. The Salukis (4-3, 3-1 MVFC) were the only team to score in the third quarter as they took advantage of another UNI fumble, jumping out to a 31-21 lead heading to the final quarter. The resilient Panthers would not go away as they fought back to tie the game behind a Johnson 29-yard touchdown run and a 30-yard field goal from junior Tyler Sievertsen. However, SIU orchestrated

With wins over Evansville and Southern Illinois, the UNI Panthers improved to 8-1 in MVC play and remain in a first-place tie with the Creighton Bluejays.

Panthers pick up 2 more wins in MVC play MAT MEYER Sports Writer

The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team took down two more Missouri Valley Conference foes this weekend at home in the McLeod Center. The Panthers had some miscues against the University of Evansville on Friday, but were able to come out on top. The girls came back to play Southern Illinois University and were able to take the sweep. UNI (17-6, 8-1 MVC) remains tied atop the MVC standings with Creighton University. In the first match against Evansville (7-15, 2-7 MVC), the Panthers put together some great individual perfor-

mances despite moments of struggle. Outside hitter Megan Lehman had a career-high 22 kills and hitter Macy Ubben also had a career-high 19 kills and 13 digs. The first set started off well for UNI with an early 10-5 lead. From there, the momentum seemed to change in favor of Evansville. Any lead the Panthers got was quickly diminished by the great play of the Aces. Evansville won the set 25-21. “I felt like we were in system a lot offensively, but defensively we weren’t doing anything we were supposed to be doing game plan wise as far as execution,” UNI head coach Bobbi Petersen said of her team’s first-set blunders. The second set was an improve-

ment as Lehman tallied eight of her 22 kills to rally the Panthers back into the match. UNI was able to get the win, 25-19. “I was really happy with Megan Lehman tonight, and I think she just played with a whole lot more confidence tonight,” Petersen said. The Panthers came out after the break and were able to take the third set 25-21, but it wasn’t until the fourth set that UNI truly started to look like a first-place team. The UNI defense forced Evansville into four attack errors during an 8-0 run to open play in the fourth set. “We have to have a purpose with our < See VOLLEYBALL, page 10

Friday night’s matchup didn’t seem to wear off as UNI went on an early 6-0 run against the Salukis and rolled to a 25-15 victory in the first set. The Panthers were able to stay consistent against the Salukis, winning the second set 25-20 and the third set 25-21.

The Panthers failed to put any points on the board in the final 59 seconds of regulation despite starting the drive at the SIU 39-yard line. Kollmorgen was sacked two times, all but ending the UNI drive. Kollmorgen’s pass attempt on fourth down and 15 was incomplete. Kollmorgen finished the game 18-for-27 with 243 yards passing and a touchdown. Johnson was the leading rusher for the Panthers with 118 yards and two touchdowns. LeMaster caught six passes for 112 yards with one score. The Panthers will look for their first MVFC win next Saturday when they host the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits (5-1, 3-0 MVFC) at 4 p.m.

kept UNI in the lead. Evansville and UNI were locked in a scoreless match until the 54th minute of action on Saturday when the Purple Aces took a 1-0 lead on a goal from Tatiana Pagan. The Purple Aces added another goal in the 75th minute to extend their lead to 2-0 over the Panthers. Hagan led the offensive attack for the Panthers on Saturday, attempting four shots with one on goal. However, UNI failed to break into the scoring column, dropping a 2-0 contest to the Purple Aces. The Panthers return home to close out the regular season against the Creighton University Bluejays at 7 p.m. on Oct. 25.
