No para left behind Educators go back to class to meet federal requirements BY NICOLE WEBSTER Staff Writer

Students make observations in the Brown Center for Jan Allison’s Intro. to Paraprofessionalism class. Above: Jana Perrigo also makes observations.

heryl Fortenberry is one of many paraprofessionals at Adams Elementary School in Arkansas City. Fortenberry has been in her profession for over 20 years and is now returning to school thanks to President Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act. Due to the act, paraprofessionals had the choice either to pass a test making sure they were qualified for their job or to return to school for further education. According to the No Child Left Behind Act, paraprofessionals are aides who support services provided in a school. Paras, whose jobs are much like those of a teacher’s aide, often work with severely autistic and behavior-disordered children. Fortenberry originally took the test that the No Child Left Behind Act requires; however, she later learned that as long as the paras completed Cowley College’s para program, “We didn’t have to take the test or worry about future tests.” “I’ve been pleased with it so far; I’m learning a lot,” Fortenberry said. “It’s been really helpful to me.” If para-educators decide to attend college, the act pays for their tuition and paras are given $100 toward book fees. According to Social Science Instructor Jan Allison, if paras are returning to school, they are required to earn either 48 credit hours or an associate’s degree. The only requirement is that paras must maintain a

‘C’ average in the program after submitting a letter of intention to be accepted. Currently, 33 paraprofessionals are enrolled in Cowley College’s program, which began in the summer of 2004. All paras enrolled in the program are from Cowley County and should be finished with their degrees by the fall of 2007. Linda McClure, a paraprofessional at Winfield Middle School, has also chosen to return to school instead of taking the test. “Coming back to school a second time, I’m doing better,” McClure said. She added that it was either “take the test or go to school. To go to school, it’s free. If I’m going to school, I’m going all the way.” McClure wants to finish school so she can become a special education teacher. McClure is glad that she’s able to return to school. She said, “When the opportunity knocks, you go ahead and take it.” Right now, McClure is a sophomore trying to earn her associate’s degree. Fortenberry and McClure had good things to say about Allison, who is their main instructor. “She really enjoys being an educator; you can see it in her,” McClure said. “Jan reminds me of Lucille Ball, except with blond hair and braces.” McClure has advice for others who want to return to school. “If you think you can’t handle it, don’t do it,” she said. However, she also said that if people want to make changes in their life, they will “try to keep that ‘C’ average.”

BY TRACI HOLZEM Staff Writer While sitting in a chair receiving radiation to fight aggressive stage four cancer, Jeanette Johnson sang, “You are my sunshine,” to keep positive thoughts. She told God that if she got through this, she would not let her second chance go to waste. After enduring several rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, she received the good news from her doctors that the cancer was gone. So after working in the nursing field, including as a supervisor, for 22 years, she is back at Cowley College as a non-traditional student to get a degree in communications. Non-traditional students are typically categorized as being over the age of 25. They often must manage other responsibilities such as a family, a marriage and a job while they are resuming their education either full or part-time. According to the enrollment list for the fall 2004 semester, there are 1,391 students currently enrolled at Cowley College’s main campus. Out of those students, 344 of them are non-traditional students. The Association for Nontraditional Students in Higher Education reports that students who are over 25 make up almost half of the new and returning student pop-

ulation on many college campuses. The number of non-traditional students is on the rise. Non-traditional students have encountered different obstacles while attempting to obtain a college degree. Many of them have not been in a classroom for 10 or more years. So when instructors say, “You should remember this stuff from high school,” it is sometimes harder for non-traditional students to follow the course work without interrupting the entire class for an on-the-spot refresher. Sitting in class with other students half their age can make it difficult for them to fit in. “Sometimes they tease me with, ‘Hey Mom,’” said Dana Kirkbride, a mother and wife who has come back to Cowley to get a degree as a dental hygienist. “Most of the girls are open to me. I am impressed with them; they are good kids.” However, time management is the major concern for most non-traditional students. Trying to find time for the children, the spouse and the job is difficult. “You have to use time management for sure and use your time wisely,” Johnson said. “I think anybody, any age can go back to school and do what makes them happy.” Johnson is happy and feels successful being active in the first year of the radio-broadcasting program. While being

arty throwers may need to guard the door and examine IDs to prevent minors from invading the next bash. A new ordinance passed by Arkansas City Commissioners has taken effect. Under Section 9.02.885, titled “Unlawfully hosting minors consuming alcoholic liquid or cereal malt beverage,” it is against the law to provide minors with a residence to either possess or consume alcoholic beverages. Residence can mean places such as a land, building, structure or room owned or occupied by any party planner. If caught throwing a party with minors on the premises, each tenant, as stated under the law, will be charged a $200 fine and $44 for court costs for each party thrown. Thus, if police raid a party and find underage possession or consumption of alcohol on the premises, the host will be charged under section 9.02.885. If law enforcement officers were to clear the party out and make everyone leave, and the party began at the host’s residence again, he/she would again be charged a second time that night. If the host is 18 or older, he/she can expect to be charged with other fines such

as furnishing and contributing to minors. Is it still worth taking the consequences in exchange for an underage-drinking get together? Freshman Noah Smith, a current home renter in the city, said, “Hell no, it’s not worth it. With breaking rules comes consequences, and I don’t have the money to pay for all that.” City Attorney Otis Morrow said, “We passed this law because it’s a model of a law that has been passed by the state.” Police Chief Dan Givens agreed, saying, “ I asked for the city commission to pass this law. The state has already passed a law that is very similar, and we like to have municipal laws that mirror our state.” “I’m enforcing my job, protecting you. I think reasonable people would understand that,” Givens said. “I would rather have college students criticize me and call me a hypocrite than have to drive to their parents’ house and tell them their child died due to an alcohol-related accident.” According to Givens, before Section 9.02.885 came into effect, city law enforcement found it difficult to hold tenants responsible for contributing alcohol to minors because they couldn’t prove that the host gave consent to the underage drinking group. “Furnishing wasn’t broad enough.

Clarification

The new Webb-Brown Academic Center is named for two long-time Arkansas Citians, Daisy E. and Paul H. Brown. Daisy, whose maiden name was Webb, graduated from Arkansas City High School and Arkansas City Junior College, the latter in 1949. She received a bachelor’s degree from Southwestern College, and was a career teacher, having taught in one-room country schoolhouses, and later in schools in Arkansas City and Wichita. Daisy and Paul met when he was working in Arkansas City as a mechanic for the Ford dealership. After World War II, he worked as an inspector for Boeing in Wichita. Paul’s education was gained mainly through on-the-job training. He was a self-taught person who loved learning. Paul died in 1994 and Daisy died in 1997.

Unlawfully hosting is broader, allowing us to hold tenants and homeowners who open their doors to underage drinkers accountable for their actions. Now many parents have called and asked, ‘if we leave town and our child has a party, are we going to be held accountable?’ The answer to that is no. We’re going to use common sense. We’re not going to charge individuals who are innocent and play no part in the crime. However, if the parent leaves town multiple times and their child keeps getting into trouble, then charges may be brought against them,” Givens said Just because the laws concerning underage drinking have become stricter, doesn’t mean that students can’t enjoy their time at Cowley. “Go out and have fun. Go to a show, play sports, grab a pop, but don’t drink if you’re under 21,” Givens said. “The college alone spends thousands of dollars a year to entertain you without using alcohol.” Givens added, “This law is all about safety. While some may criticize us for delivering these ordinances, trust us. We know what we’re doing. When we were young, we did stupid things. We as adults now have the ability of hindsight, and that hindsight is always 20/20.”

BITES Social science instructors Michelle Knoles and Cathy Hendricks are embarking on Operation Happy Holidays. Their mission is to gather items to send to troops in Iraq. They will be collecting ink pens, notebooks, stationery, handwritten letters addressed as “Dear Service Person,” holiday cards either blank or addressed to “Dear Service Person,” monetary donations toward phone cards, envelopes, stamps and hard candy that will not melt. Anybody interested in helping should contribute items in the Social Science Office of the Brown Center before Friday, Nov. 12. Cowley College has added a new Wichita telephone number that rings in Arkansas City. If you are anywhere in the Wichita metropolitan area, you can dial 554-2700, and you will be connected directly to the switchboard in Arkansas City. Instructors and students in the Wichita area are encouraged to start using this number to reach the Arkansas City campus rather than the college’s tollfree number. The 800-number is free for the caller but an expense to the college. Using the new 554-2700 number will be free for both parties. According to the American College Health Association, 15 percent of US college students report problems with depression or anxiety. Cowley College offers its students free and confidential services for these and other personal issues. The office of Student Life Counselor Roy Reynolds is in room 204

There will be no refund for a dropped class, but students will receive a W instead of the F that they would receive if they quit attending a class but without dropping it. Students who intend to drop a class should get an add-drop slip from the Admissions Office and then meet with their academic adviser. It’s the time of the year when high school students are making their choices for college. On Nov. 17 Cowley College hosts Senior Day for prospective students. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. Activities have been planned for the whole day until 3 p.m., including a Jazz Band performance, speakers, tours and lunch. Last year about 300 students attended Senior Day; this year organizers expect approximately the same number. Current Cowley students are encouraged to welcome the prospective students. High school students should register at www.cowley.edu. The Black Student Union is selling Tshirts. The T-shirts are grey with the BSU logo on the front. The union is selling them for $10 per T-shirt. For more information about the club or T-shirts, contact Bruce Watson at 620-441-5306. Bites compiled by Simbi Munjoma simbimunj@hotmail.com

Opinions

‘other’ race

tandardized exams always asked me to identify my race, yet during my childhood, they generally left me with few options from which to choose. Sometimes, American Indian would be an option. If I was lucky, I could choose between the American Indian and Asian/ Pacific Islander options. However, I never had the opportunity to choose all of my racial composition, and sometimes, test makers would be lazy, and the only choice I would have is the mysterious “other” option. Current changes to the census have helped me to express my multicultural background. My parents probably did not realize what they were mixing up when they first met on a blind date in the midst of the Vietnam War. In the early 1960s, my mother immigrated to the United States from the Philippines. My mother’s parents were both Filipino, but in addition her father had Chinese blood and her mother had Spanish blood. At the same time period, my father completed one semester at Ark City Junior College and decided to enlist in the military. His father was Irish while his mother was Native American. The irony of his biological parent union was that his maternal grandfather was a chief of a Wyandotte tribe, while his paternal great-grandfather

was an Indian fighter. There is a growing multicultural population, like myself, in the United States. In the 2000 census, the U.S. Census Bureau instituted two major changes to improve multicultural statistical information. First, they split up the Asian/Pacific Islander category yielding an Asian category and a Hawaiian/Pacific Islander category. Second, the Census Bureau dropped the one-size-fits-all category assignments and now allow people to choose as many categories that apply to them. Educational institutions may follow the lead of the U.S. Census Bureau and change their race questionnaires. Dean of Research and Technology Charles McKown said that Cowley College will change its race classification guidelines to align with the Census Bureau if the Department of Education mandated it. However, McKown predicted that these changes would not occur for several years. In the meantime, many Hispanics have been outraged that the census changes have not included Hispanics as a race. Hispanics are defined as people who originate from a Spanish-speaking country. Nearly 40 million Hispanics live in the United States. Past census questionnaires have forced Hispanics to choose among the established five categories. In the 2000 census, 17 million Hispanics elected to choose the “some other race” category; that is roughly the population of Florida.

Page 7

All right.... now we’re going to share what ethnicity we are!

By Dana Dinkel Hispanics hope that the 2010 census will include them as a race. Proudly, I accept all of these new changes that encompass the growing melting pot in the United States. It gives me the ability to display my multicultural

background. With the categories of White, Black, Asian, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, American Indian or Alaska Native, and the possible inclusion of Hispanic in 2010, more U.S. citizens will not have to be forced into the “other” category.

Kiddie hackers need parents, not high-tech stand-ins

R

ecently, I saw an advertisement for the new America Online software. In this ad, a supposed mother carrying a very young child requests a censored, “kid-friendly” Internet environment that allows her to receive a “report card” of her child’s online activity. This is absurd. Call me antiquated if you will, but I do not believe that technological solutions are an excuse for lax parenting. I am opposed to the use of Internet filters and against the installation of VChips in televisions. Don’t assume that I’m some sort of pervert. I do not think that children should be exposed to gratuitous porn or senseless violence. They are just children, after all. But I don’t think these technological wonders will save the children of future generations. What will save them are parents that are willing to be parents. Let’s face it. The younger generations

Association of America (MPAA) “R” rating often attract more fan-base and create more sensationalized buzz. Due to the mystery and wonder that these forbidden materials now possess, the children will do everything in their power to figure out how to manipulate or bypass the filters. Now we have, in effect, bred an entire generation of hackers bent on cracking through whatever technological boundaries stand in their way. I’m not suggesting that a very young child is going to develop this anarchistic attitude. I’d be more afraid of him putting Cheerios in the disk drive than accessing inappropriate material. However, what parent is letting a very young child operate a computer on his own? I did not grow up with some chip installed in my veneer-laminated television. My mom picked what I watched until she thought I was old enough to make my

own decisions on such matters. Even then, she very quickly let me know when she didn’t approve of my choice. Again, maybe my family is oldfashioned, but when I was young, I was encouraged to run around and play outside. It allowed me to exercise and develop my creativity. Bluntly, it is just bad parenting to place a child in front of a television or a computer screen all day. I’m not sure when it became socially acceptable, but it needs to stop. When did kids stop playing house and digging holes in the dirt? Children would learn more and would be better socially adjusted if they were booted out the door every now and then and encouraged to play with the neighbor kids. Future generations don’t need any more technological stand-ins. They need parents.

Vocal and band departments join for fall concert

F

all is finally here, and this Sunday, Nov. 7, the fall vocal/ band concert will be at 2 p.m. in the Brown Center Theater. This will be the first concert for both departments. The Concert Band will be featured first, followed by the Concert Choir. Both groups have been rehearsing since the first week of school. Featured selections for the choir were all composed in the 20th century. They range from several a capella pieces to upbeat songs and spirituals. The choir has a busy year ahead that they are preparing for. First of all, the group has nearly doubled in size from last year, to over 50 members. In many ways, this is wonderful, but it takes a lot more concentration and effort from the students during their rehearsals. “We sophomores have had to step up and show the freshmen how it’s done,” said sophomore Je’Anna Watson. “Coming in to last year as freshmen, we were outnumbered by the sophomores. But walking in this year, with less than half of us returning, there are a lot of new freshman to adjust to and grow with.”

CHOIR CELEBRATES RETURN TO KMEA

In May of this year, Vocal Music Director Connie Donatelli sent a tape of last year's choir to the Kansas Music Educators

Association. Each year KMEA has a special concert involving high school students throughout Kansas, and it features one college choir. The Concert Choir was selected three years ago, and according to the rules, a choir can only perform once every three years. With the hopes of being chosen again, Donatelli was delighted when she received a letter in August informing her that the choir had been chosen once again. "I can't even begin to describe how incredible it Photo by Tara Vanderpool is," Donatelli said. Percussionist Geoff Abegg Even though their rehearses for the Nov. 7 concert. performance for KMEA isn't until Feb. 25, the choir has a lot of work to do to prepare for it in between their other concerts and performance. In addition to KMEA, the group was also asked to perform with WSU and KSU choirs next semester.

BAND OPENS SEMESTER WITH NEW WORK

Photo by Tara Vanderpool

Members of the Concert Band rehearse for their upcoming concert on Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. in the Brown Center Theater.

Included in the concert will be the premier of a new work by Instrumental Music Director Gary Gackstatter entitled “Illuminations: Visions of Hildegard von Bingen.” This work combines the artwork of the famous Medieval mystic with music based on her chants. Like the choir, this year the band has a lot of newcomers that are making the transition from high school band to the college level.

Images of enlightenment Photographer Wally Emerson brings Baker Wetlands to campus BY KIRSTEN WINBLAD Staff Writer Wally Emerson will be displaying his photographs and speaking at 7 p.m. on Nov. 10 in the Wright Room of the Brown Center. His presentation is part of the Irwin Visiting Artist Series. According to Connie Bonfy, director of institutional grants, Emerson is a well-known, fine arts photographer, who has earned his reputation with his study of the Baker Wetlands. Originally, Emerson was enthralled with the beauty that the wetlands had to offer. Over time, however, he

became actively involved in preserving the wetlands. His photographs of the Baker Wetlands are his stance on raising the issue and awareness on protecting the environment. Bonfy believes Emerson’s artwork is amazing. “It’s very cool,” she said. If you would like to form your own opinion before Nov. 10, the best place to find his artwork would be at www.wallyemerson.com. For those interested in viewing Emerson’s work but who may miss the show opening on Nov. 10, Emerson’s work will be displayed for the remainder of November.

the Review BY MATT MENDOZA Staff Writer

Sometimes it seems like the Japanese are good at everything. They have the best cars, the best technology, and the best business, but can they hold their own in the realm of horror flicks? The Grudge, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, is a quality remake of the originally Japanese film Ju-on: the Grudge. This rehash was directed by its original director, Takashi Shimizu and definitely incorporates Japanese culture but also emphasizes its difference compared to American culture. Shimizu uses this “strange land” approach to his advantage, staging an American couple in a foreign land to help

create a feeling of isolation and loneliness. This thriller was based on a popular Japanese legend that states, “When a person dies in the grips of a powerful rage or sorrow, a curse is born at that place, consuming all who come in contact with that place.” This curse is placed on a house owned by an American couple that employs a volunteer firm to take care of the husband’s mother while they are at work. Gellar portrays a young American student volunteering for the firm who is sent to the house to take care of the “crazy” mother. During her stay, Gellar witnesses an untimely death caused by unexplained causes, but those causes are important plot points that the audience must discover. Decent horror flicks are easy to find,

but great horror flicks are even harder, and sadly this is not one of the greats. Shimizu does a good job with his own style and his crew is fantastic at times, if not extremely stereotypical. Some of the events in the movie are classic horror style, a.k.a. “the usual,” but others are uniquely Grudge. The imagery and cinematography are definitely top-notch, including some scenes with fantastic lighting effects and scary-as-hell antagonists. Gellar and her co-actors William Mapother, Clea DuVall and KaDee Strickland do a good job in keeping up the suspense, despite some flaws in reason. Sometimes every scary movie creates a situation in which one of the characters makes a decision that would usually be

deemed as illogical or just plain stupid. But quality acting can cover this decision with the needed sense. Unfortunately, Gellar and the cast can’t cover up this lack of brainpower very well, making the audience wonder why in the hell they would do that. Overall, this movie is great for a quick horror fix that both fills you up and doesn’t let you down. The acting isn’t horrible and the movie makes sense most of the time, but the directing and cinematography definitely make this film good for a scare or three. The Japanese have definitely not mastered the horror genre, but at the rate original-director remakes are going, they will soon catch up.

Tyger Tawk hits the air This is the first semester Cowley College has offered a Communications Club. It is open to all students, not just communications majors. Rather than calling it The Communication Club, a contest was held asking all Cowley students and employees to suggest a new name for the club. Jacque Ramirez, Humanities Department secretary, won the $25 prize for suggesting the name Tyger Tawk. Starting quickly, club members have already attended a field trip to Northwestern Oklahoma State University to investigate that college’s communications classes. In addition, students with a communications scholarship have been interning at KSOK, one of Arkansas City’s radio stations. Some of these students have helped with radio broadcasts of Arkansas City High School’s home football games. The club meets at 11:50 a.m. every Wednesday in room 204 in the Brown Center. Anybody interested can attend the meetings. Those interested in the club but unable to attend the meetings can contact Tom Mason in the Humanities Department for more information or call Mason at 620441-5278.

have actually worked harder together.” Smithson should know. Having coached the Tiger men for the last three years, he has an extensive background in basketball. He played and coached at Wichita State University before coming to Cowley in 2001. Since he took over, Smithson is a combined 63-33 and his teams have finished second in the Jayhawk Conference East Division for three consecutive years. The new players, though talented, are a diverse group. The two sophomore transfers, Arturs Stalbergs and Damian Lolar, look to add extra leadership to the young team. Lolar, a 6-4 Arkansas City native, transferred from Labette County, where he averaged over 20 points per game, and should give the Tigers another weapon on the perimeter. Stalbergs, on the other hand, came from Latvia, a small European country, where he was ranked in the top 20 young European players. The 15 freshmen come a varitey of places, ranging from Arkansas City to Anchorage, Alaska. Besides the freshmen, there are three men who are far from new. Avery Burrell, Stacy Bias and Xavier Burnette all saw playing time last year and are eager to improve on last year’s 23-9 record. Burnette, after seeing significant playing time last season, has worked hard through the summer and is expected to bring back his 3-ball, which made him the third leading scorer on the team a year ago. Bias and Burrell saw limited time last year but will work to become inside forces this year. Last season ended abruptly with a 68-60 loss to Barton County in the second round of the playoffs. The Tigers are ranked second in the pre-season coaches’

Clark stresses defense Lady Tigers excited about new coach and new season BY JARED MCINTIRE Staff Writer

U

nder the guidance of former head coach Stephanie Smith, the Lady Tiger basketball team finished the 2003-2004 season with a 23-9 record, making it a streak of eight consecutive seasons with at least 20 wins. This year, after Smith’s sudden departure with only one season at Cowley, the Lady Tigers’ new look will feature a familiar face in the head coaching position. Todd Clark, who spent the 1997-2000 seasons as Cowley’s assistant women’s basketball coach, has returned and is looking to keep the Lady Tiger squad a contender in the Jayhawk Conference. “I love being back here,” Clark said. “It feels like I’m at home.” Clark spent the two previous seasons as head coach at Northwestern Oklahoma State University and had a two-year stint as an assistant coach at University of TexasSan Antonio, which is an NCAA Division I school. “Coach is a good motivator,” freshman Lacey Rowe of Oxford said. “I’m improving so he must be good.” The head coaching position was not the only void that needed to be filled after last season. The team lost seven sopho-

mores, many of whom saw extensive court time, but the Lady Tigers return four players who played significant roles on the 2003-2004 team. Sophomore Marina Caran is the team’s top returning starter, averaging 12 points per game last year at point guard. Brazilians Domencia Silva and Priscilla De Souza, as well as Kara Pridey, also played extensively. “All the players are working hard and making daily improvements,” Clark said. “Their attitudes are great. It’s just a good situation.” Clark will be looking to return the Lady Tigers back to a more defensive-oriented philosophy, as opposed to the frenetic pace of the team from a year ago. “We’ve really been stressing defense and guarding,” he said. An excellent incoming freshman class as well as transfers Tamala Turner, Lakisha Miller and Krystal Gillespie could make an instant impact. When talking about leadership, Clark mentioned Turner as well as Pridey and De Souza as key individuals. The Lady Tigers opened their season against the Southwestern JV Tuesday. Results were not available by The Cowley Press deadline. Conference play begins Jan. 5 when the Lady Tigers host Labette County.

in the district playoffs. With the Jayhawk East title on the line, the Lady Tigers hosted the Independence Pirates at W.S. Scott Auditorium on Oct. 20. The winner would clinch a tie for first place. Unfortunately, the Lady Tigers fell to the Pirates with a 23-30, 23-30, 15-30 loss. As a result, the Lady Tigers placed third in the Jayhawk East standings. In the first round of district playoffs, Cowley was the higher seeded team and hosted Butler. After defeating Butler in four games, the Lady Tigers traveled to Hesston to compete for the district title last Saturday. In its their match on Saturday, the Lady Tigers knocked off Pratt for the fourth time this season. Cowley needed just three games to win 30-27, 30-22, 30-24. This allowed the Lady Tigers to play Dodge City in the finals. However, their hope for qualifying for the national tournament was dashed when the Lady Conquistadors defeated them 11-30, 16-30 and 25-30, giving Cowley second place in the district. Coach Joanna Pryor said, “I think we did well. I wish we would have done

a little better in conference, but … I was pleased with districts.” Sophomore Rachelle Hembree expressed her displeasure at the loss. “I’m glad we placed, but I’m disappointed because I know we could have won it,” she said. The Lady Tigers finish the season with a record of 21-17. This is the 15th straight season they have won at least 20 matches. Cowley will say goodbye to sophomores Andrea Iman, Ali Pulec and Rachelle Hembree. Despite the loss of these three sophomores, the Lady Tigers will return the majority of their team for next season. Pryor said, “We have a lot to build on.” Though she is sad about leaving, Iman is pleased about receiving the opportunity. “I’m glad I played this year and represented Cowley College and that my dream to play college volleyball happened.”

Men place 2nd in conference Two-year cross country winning streak ends BY STACIA WHITTECAR Staff Writer After a men’s second-place and a women’s third-place finish in the Jayhawk Conference East Division, the Cowley cross country teams each will be represented at the national meet this weekend in El Paso, Texas. The only difference between the squads is that the men will have a full team running, whereas only freshmen Leslie Priskey and Katie Wagner will be running for the women because the team didn’t qualify. “You have to put your heart into it, and some didn’t put their heart in it,” Priskey said. Even though the men qualified the team, there were mixed feelings on how well they ran at the conference meet. “We ran poorly, but it could have been worse,” sophomore Eric Johnston said. “We weren’t happy with how we ran, but we finished strong,” sophomore Jon Antar said. Others were just happy to be done with the course in El Dorado, where the

Jayhawk Conference meet was held last week. “I’m just glad we never have to run that course again,” sophomore Tim Marshall said. While the men did finish second to Johnson County, their two-year string of division championships was broken. “Johnson ran their butts off,” sophomore Steven Schoon said. Heading into nationals, this year’s men’s team isn’t as optimistic as last year’s team, which took home a third-place trophy. “Hopefully we’ll get in the top 10 at nationals,” Schoon said. Antar added, “If we ran how we did at regionals, we’ll do horribly.” Johnston has a different goal for the Tigers. “I want to go above what other teams expect of us,” he said. As the men are trying to place as a team, the two women just look to do well as individuals. “I want to run the best of my ability,” Priskey said.

After a one-year experiment, co-ed football will continue at Cowley College. Last year there were two separate leagues: a women’s league, also known as “powder puff football,” and a men’s league. This season, though, Intramural Director Errol Lowery decided to combine the leagues. The reason is “because last year the men were too competitive, and I wanted to make it fun again,” Lowery said.
