College hires new volleyball coach

May 16, 2013 — Vol. 91, Issue 15

Not just Join Loras seniors saying students goodbye at Party in The Loras community gathered in the ACC Ballroom to say ‘farewell’ to 6 longtime faculty and staff members

by NICK JOOS staff writer

On Tuesday afternoon, Loras College Athletics announced the 12th head volleyball coach in the school’s history. Jenna Ness is an Iowa Conference graduate and former coach at St. Mary’s University, St. Ambrose in Davenport and Luther, where she graduated in 2011 with an undergraduate degree in business management and exercise science. She will complete her master’s degree at St. Ambrose in organizational leadership this month. Ness will replace longtime coach Teresa Kehe, who led Loras to 149 wins and two Iowa Conference Championships Jenna Ness over her eight years of service. Six weeks ago, Kehe took the head coaching job at LinnMar High School in Marion, Iowa, where she will begin working in the fall. Kehe has family in the Cedar Rapids area. “Jenna displays both tremendous enthusiasm for volleyball and has an impressive knowledge of the game,” Quinn is quoted as saying on duhawks.com. “She is also clearly in support of what it means to be a NCAA Division III athlete and coach and is fully in line with what we stand for in terms of the mission of our College. I believe we’ll have a smooth transition into the 2013 season.” Kehe will stay at Loras through the remainder of the academic year, assisting with the transfer of leadership into Ness’ hands. Ness also has experience as a graduate assistant, part-time teaching, recruiting, committee advising and director of intramurals. Some of the information for this article was obtained from a Tuesday press release from the Loras College Sports Information Office.

Donald’s ‘Blacklight Shakespeare’ shines by MARY AGNOLI

executive editor

Last weekend, the Loras Players put on a production of “Blacklight Shakespeare,” written and directed by Doug Donald. The show takes Shakespearean monologues out of context and leaves the actor with only a mask, gloves, and a prop in blacklight. The resulting spectacle attracted the Loras community to Saint Joseph’s Auditorium last Friday and Saturday night. “It’s such a unique way to see Shakespeare,” said sophomore Anne Spoden, who served as the stage manager for the show. “I think an audience can be distracted by the costumes, lighting, music, or other element with any show. With Blacklight Shakespeare, the audience had to focus on a mask and really pay attention to the words. I had so much fun—it was a great way to end the Player’s season.”

Blacklight Shakespeare was largely an individual process for many of the actors. Each had an individual session with Doug Donald to discuss the meaning of their monologue and get a feel for their role. The entire cast rehearsed together during the week leading up to the show. “It was fun to be part of such a diverse cast,” said sophomore Colin Halb-

maier. “Everyone was involved, whether they were a newcomer or a veteran to the Loras Players. It was a great blend of the new and the old. Some terrific seniors are graduating this year, but they’re doing so knowing that the new first-years are going to keep raising the bar.” “Being in Blacklight Shakespeare with such dedicated people made me realize how much I love acting,” said first-year Emma Horst. “I thought the show was a success, and so much fun.” Blacklight Shakespeare concluded the 2012-2013 season for the Loras Players, which featured diverse shows such as the musical The Adding Machine and the thought-provoking The Good Woman of Setzuan. Information has not been announced concerning the 2013-2014 season, but the rich history of the Loras Players promises a future of thoughtful acting.

Most Duhawks spend their summers working as interns, employees, or inhabiting their parents’ couch all summer long. One Duhawk in particular has done what many students would never imagine doing: planning, launching and executing his own fundraiser. Ben Minnis, a sophomore psychology student, is the co-founder of Party in the Park (PITP). Party in the Park is an annual event devoted to promoting both mental and physical health in addition to raising funds for Suicide Prevention Services of America. “We started Party in the Park because we lost a close friend to suicide,” Minnis said. “Neither the students nor the school administration wanted to talk about what had happened, so we decided something needed to be done.” Minnis, with the generous help of high school friends and family, began planning the event during the second semester of his senior year of high school. The event is held in Batavia, IL, which is Minnis’ hometown. It includes a 5K Run/Walk, silent auction and a concert featuring different artists each year. The first PITP raised Neither the over $5,000, and students nor the following PITP nearly douthe school bled that. This administration summer PITP will be held on Satur- wanted to talk day, July 20.

Sustainability Spotlight A salute to Matt Sanford by KALLI MINER

student co-coordinator of peace and justice

It is only too fitting that in this year’s final senior issue, we recognize our very own Matt Sanford, senior co-coordinator for Peace and Justice and longtime green building advocate. “My old man was an eagle scout, and my four brothers and I are too, so caring for the outdoors comes very natural,” says Sanford. He credits the Boys Scouts for providing a model for him to follow in being a steward of the earth. “We were always taught to leave the camp better than how we found it,” says Sanford. “Besides, nature is the way to find relief from fast-paced lives, so we need to take care of it.” Sanford’s attitudes carried over as he became student coordinator of the Father Ray Herman Peace and Justice Center in the 2009-2010 school year. Among many other accomplishments,

Sanford boasts an impressive record in forestry as he’s planted over 12,000 trees in his life time. He’ll go on to plant more this week as he leads student volunteers in planting trees on the Loras campus. Over the years he’s done a lot of work with Green Corps and Ameri-Corps through his position on campus. He’s played roles as both an advocate and educator, spreading the news on sustainability far in wide. Sanford has even paired with the sustainability group LEAF, here on campus to host sustainability competitions in residence halls. A self-proclaimed coffee addict himself, Sanford was eager to help spread the word on fair trade and purchasing local grown items through co-hosting fair trade coffee houses. “I helped try to finalize the Fair Trade College contract that had been worked on for a few years by other students before

me,” says Sanford. “But it’s something that indirectly impacts the world’s environment, so I thought it was an important cause.” Though Sanford addresses a variety of issues in coordinating the Peace and Justice Program, the issue of sustainability is one that is especially close to his heart as he is a Biological Research major. In fact, Sanford’s senior thesis testing the effects of invasive species on ecological systems reflected his passion further. “The very objective in my research was to see first-hand how destructive invasive species are to ecological systems, and how to better preserve and protect those systems.” So, though this senior will be very, very missed by the ‘green’ team and Loras community, his message will be heard long after he’s gone.

Collins looks ahead as school year ends by MARY AGNOLI

executive editor

As another successful school year comes to a close, and the class of 2013 prepares for the next steps in their lives, those remaining at Loras look to the future as well. Some changes are even happening while students are still on campus. “The most visible upgrade is the end of the first phase of Loras Parkway,” said President Jim Collins. Yesterday, students helped to plant trees along the road that were purchased through a grant Loras received. There are also hopes for more sitting areas and lighting. Also as of Wednesday, Loras has announced that Dr. Dan Conway will begin as the founding director of the new Masters of Business Analytics program. “He’s finishing up teaching at Augustana College,” said Collins. “And (he) has served as a professor at Notre Dame and Indiana University as well.” Conway’s career has also led him to John Deere, the University of Iowa, Northwestern Law, and consulting in analytics for a variety of other companies. “(Conway) will direct the MBA program, establish the curriculum, and shape the analytics undergraduate at Loras,” said Collins. “As well as help build industry relationships to assist in internship and employment for our students.” In order to take all of this on at Loras, Conway will be putting aside many of his other consulting jobs, and the Administration couldn’t be happier. Also continuing into the summer and the next school year is a fundraising campaign for $75 million.

“$40 million has already been raised,” said Collins. “The primary reason (for this campaign) is to support student aid and faculty and staff development and compensation.” He went on to explain that it is easier to fundraise for such efforts due to the fact that unlike for larger building projects (such as the Loras Parkway expenditure, adding extensions to buildings, or building a new residence hall), a major lead gift is not necessary. This campaign also ties directly into the desire to continue with Loras’ successful recruitment this school year. “Thanks to the Four State Flagship Program, we’re looking to have the biggest incoming class yet,” said Collins. This program allows students from Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, or Wisconsin with academic success and financial need to attend Loras for the same price as a public institution in their state. “Often times students don’t even look at a private school because they think it’s unaffordable,” said Collins. “But in reality, we’re more affordable.” One of the biggest summer projects on campus will be making Christ the King Chapel handicap accessible. Due to a generous donation by Jim Theisen, it is on the top of Loras’ “to do” list while students are away to help make the campus more accommodating to all people. Collins concluded by giving a special message to the graduating class. “Best wishes and God bless to the class of 2013,” said Collins. “Hopefully the class will continue to feel a part of and be a part of the Loras community.”

ere we are. The last one. I feel that I’ve been saying that quite a bit lately. “This is the last this…” “That was the last time I’ll…” As a soon-to-be graduated senior, there is quite a bit that I will be doing for the last time. This article, my dear obby auch readers, is the last democratic opinion column I shall write for the Lorian. It has been my privilege to bring you opinions from the left. More than that, it has been an honor to share the page with fellow critical thinkers. I sometimes do not agree with Andy Miller; I often don’t agree with Patrick O’Grady. But that is no reason not to engage in conversation. As Foucalt said, “discourse is not simply that which translates struggles or systems of domination, but is the thing for which and by which there is struggle, discourse is the power which is to be seized.” A healthy dialogue between viewpoints is essential to the way this country runs. The Lorian, and Loras as a whole, have provided a great atmosphere for that dialogue. I believe in the two-party system, but a sincere thank you goes to Mr. Miller for bringing to light ideas that differ from the binary and add to the discourse. And of course, what would my opinions be without my foil? Mr. O’Grady has long stood as a beacon of the GOP here.

Thank you for listening. And now it seems I have wasted my article being sentimental and have advocated for hardly anything liberal.

The editoral staff would like to give a warm and sincere THANK YOU to both Mr. Bauch and Mr. O’Grady for their work over the past year(s). Their dedication to this paper and to engaging in constructive and polite dialogue is admirable and appreciated. Again, thank you to our two senior columnists and best of luck in the future endeavors! Look for our two new columnists next semester as they continue to show the best that the Loras Democrats and Republicans have to offer.

left-leaning friend of mine recently observed that I had President Obama to thank for easier access to student loans and that, to a degree, he played a part in making my Loras experience possible. Indeed, much like the atrick rady country, Obama helped get me into debt and is doing nothing to help get me out. Arguably, no four year period in the last fifty was better suited for the study of economics and politics. Observing the revolutionary, often farcical Comedy of Errors that was 2009-2013 helped paint a clear academic picture of where the country had been and where it was going due to the many economic and political changes coming out of Washington. But to what end? I sat down in my first economics class in Hoffmann Hall in August 2009. Unemployment stood at 9.6 percent. I will walk out of my last economics class in May 2013 with unemployment still an unacceptable 7.5 percent. Ironically, I earn bachelor’s degrees at the same rate the Obama Administration drops unemployment over the same period of time: two units of measure in four years. Unemployment under the age of 25 remains alarmingly high: 16.1 percent. Furthermore, an Economic Policy Institute study recently found that 52 percent of college graduates under the age of 24 currently work in fields that do not require a college degree. Graduation is hardly the time for politics. But after you walk across that stage, take off the superfluous cap and gown, and begin the rest of your life, graduates become burdened by national leadership leaving the Class of 2013 behind. My friends, that is all there is. There is not any more. Much to the dismay of some of you and the abounded joy of others, this is my last column for the Lorian. At the very most, I hope I have hardened your belief in American conservatism. I hope I have shown you to not to look to government for hope and change, but rather the unstoppable American experience that remains so much more than a collection of governmental leaders. I hope I showed you that markets generally work, but that an effective and responsible system of welfare ought to exist to empower people back to their feet. I hope I have shown you what Rep. Paul Ryan observed in the Fieldhouse last October: “…that our rights come from Nature and Nature’s God.” At the very least, I hope I ticked you off and inspired you to political action, even if in staunch opposition of my own. Civil dialogue and political disagreement built the U.S. and will continue to sustain her for centuries to come. Do not fear debate, it is the lifeblood of the Republic. A few words of gratitude: first, thank you to Ms. Jessica Donels for her responses throughout the past year. I welcomed her succinct and articulate critiques of my work. I encourage her to apply for the open “left-of-center” opinion columnist position so that she might continue to bring her voice to the students. Secondly, thank you to Nick Joos for putting up with my perpetually missed deadlines. It was an honor to write under his tenure as editor. Thirdly, I commend Bobby Bauch, my peer and friend, for his high levels of professionalism throughout this past year. A worthy political opponent in copy, writing in opposition of Bobby elevated both my writing and the paper. Lastly, in the words of William F. Buckley, Jr.: “Conservatism can be fun.” Thanks for reading.

Mind and soul

From the Seminary

Seniors, use ‘talents to make disciples’ by RALPH DAVIS

St. Pius X Seminary

“Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Mt 28: 19-20) Have you heard these words before? Jesus spoke these words to the disciples after he appeared to them after the Resurrection and before his ascension into heaven. He gives reassurance that he will be with them through the end. As our seniors look at ending their time at Loras, these words can have great importance; the seniors now are being sent into the world where they will use their talents and knowledge gained from their time at Loras. Just as the disciples used their talents to make disciples among the nations, so too are the seniors being called to spread God’s work to all

places, teaching them to observe what Jesus has commanded us to do. This can be a difficult thing, to enter into a world where religion is under constant attack from an increasingly secularized world. Similarly, the Apostles were met with those who were attacking “The Way.” For that, Jesus gives them reassurance that no matter what, he will be with them always and until the end. The same is true today. In this time of trial, we always will have Jesus with us. He will walk with us through our struggles. We can count on his help when we need it. Now, I know I have spoken a lot about the seniors, of which I am one, but this is applicable to each and every one of us who walk on this campus. As the break looms, we must remember that we all are being sent out. We all have talents that can be used to spread the gospel to all parts of the world. For some, this seems like a tall mountain that we will never be able to climb. Just remember that as we are sent, we will always have the one who sent us with us at all times. We just have to have faith in Jesus, the same faith that the apostles had in him, and we can go and “make disciples of all nations.”

‘You will always have a spiritual home’ at Loras

This article is a preview of a weekly column by Fr. Gross that will begin when classes resume in the fall. Look for his words of wisdom on the mind and soul page. Greetings Duhawks! It is the end of the academic year, and it feels like yesterday that we were celebrating the Launch into Loras Mass and we were eating hot dogs and burgers in the summer heat in front of the ARC. Today I see many Duhawks going into the ARC to get those last papers done and to work together on the final projects of the semester. This is the also the last edition of the Lorian for the year and the closing days for the class of 2013. I want ensure the senior class that wherever you go in the future, you will always have a spiritual home here at Loras. Remember we will hold you in our prayers, as some of us stay behind to continue the tradition of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition that Bishop Loras brought to Iowa 175 years ago. And since you will be graduates of this institution of higher learning, you at least have to know two Latin sayings as you leave Loras. The first is, “Deus caritas est.” It is translated, “God is love.” I pray that during your years at Loras you have experienced

divine love in your prayer, studies, friendships, and endeavors. Remember what St. Paul says, “If I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.” I hope the knowledge and wisdom you received will be animated by the Spirit of Love. The second saying is this, “Pro Deo et Patria.” It is translated, “For God and for country.” The Loras motto captures what it means to a Christian in the world. To be a follower of Christ means to be for others. We only discover ourselves when we make a true and authentic gift of self to others. I hope there have been many opportunities for you to be for others. I hope you received much joy in serving and that in serving you have seen the face of God in his children. Deus caritas est and Pro Deo et Patria! May these two Christian realties be with you today and for the rest of your lives! May God bless the Class of 2013!

Editor’s note: hystERICal is our weekly satirical column written by Eric Osborn. The information presented here is written for comedic effect and should not be taken as fact. Dennis Rodman has a new friend, Kim Jong Un. “I don’t condone what he does, but as far as a person to person, he’s my friend,” proclaimed Rodman. This is a solid foundation for any lasting friendship. Regardless of Rodman’s crassness, Kim and Rodman have a blossoming friendship. The dastardly duo have recently been seen in a Los Angeles Baskin-Robbins. Between

bites of America’s Birthday Cake Ice Cream, Kim told the children of LA grand stories of a place called Happy Play Town (North Korea). This place was one of wonder, (it wasn’t), a place where children could play all day long (they couldn’t). The joyous children were allowed (forced) to work in the Mountains Where Smileys Are Made (sweat shops). Rodman told the children stories of Kim slaying dragons, without losing any swag. “He’s my best friend,” Rodman said repeatedly. They then left the ice cream shop skipping hand in hand singing Brad Paisley’s, “Accidental Racist.” Chicago was the next stop on the road trip. Rodman showed Kim around his old stomping grounds. Kim thought that Chicago

and Pyongyang were very similar, except people smiled in Chicago. He didn’t like that so much, but he told Rodman that with a few more rules and a little hard work he could beat the American spirit out of them. “Murica,” was Rodman’s reply. The all-American tour continued on to Daytona Beach, Florida. Kim was upset to learn that he was too late to scold all the college students that visited for spring break. He told Rodman of his family virtue of never quitting. “Even taking a break is quitting. Do you think the children in the Mountains Where Smileys Are Made take breaks?!” Kim was furious. “Listen bff, Americans just don’t have a great leader like you to show them right from wrong,” replied Rodman. At this, Kim released a singular super manly tear. It took all of his might to mutter one word, “bro.” Washington D.C. became the final stop for the terrible twosome. With McDonald’s cheeseburgers in hand they shouted

When we think of Iron Man, we think of none other than Robert Downey Jr. who has mastered his role as Tony Stark in his third solo movie and fifth appearance in the role. Coming fresh off of the Avengers blockbusting sensation, fans were excited to see their beloved playboy millionaire philanthropist back at it in this sensational film. The ever popular Rotten Tomatoes marked Iron Man 3 for 171.1 million dollars in its opening weekend and topping The Great Gatsby its second weekend. This film is action-packed and is a mustsee for not only comic book lovers, but all moviegoers. Undoubtedly, this movie had a few flaws. Specifically, it did not coincide correctly with the comic books. But that is easily overcome by the James Bond-styled scenes from Downey Jr. and incredible CGI. Without a doubt, the film’s humor tops other past Iron Man films with Tony Stark at his funniest behavior and his vintage Dora the Explorer wrist watch. Marvel Studios has a great franchise going as Thor 2: The Dark World, Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy are to hit theaters along with a new television series Agents of Shield before we see the next Avengers film. Reports have it that Downey is still in talks with his future as the role of Iron Man, but the success and the enjoyment of his recent film screams “encore.” If you have not seen this film, find a friend and get going, as this is a movie you would not like to miss out on. obscenities from beyond the White House’s fence. “You’d never get away with such disobedience back home, it’s sickening, really. These people don’t know what it’s like to go hungry, but neither do I,” Kim said laughing at his own hysterical joke. Rodman responded in kind. “Kim, you’re down right crazy! Let’s go take some little kid’s library card and rob them of knowledge!” The pair skipped away down the street, towards the setting sun, filled with hopes and dreams of destroying Western civilization.

Dawn of a Digital Age

You ’ r e A l m o s t D o n e ! Congratulations on completing another year at Loras College, Duhawks! To our graduating seniors, congratulations on all that you have achieved in your time here. To everyone else, we look forward to seeing you next year. Good luck on your finals, and have a fantastic summer!

The world is going digital, whether you like it or not. Starting with iTunes back in 2001, information and entertainment have slowly been shedding their physical forms in favor of cheaper, more efficient digital forms. Thanks to improved technology, consumers can enjoy music, video games, movies, and even books with a few clicks. Think about the last time you went to purchase a physical copy of some kind of entertainment. CDs and DVDs draw closer to disappearing altogether as services such as Spotify and Netflix gain traction. Even computers have started ditching the CD-DVD drive, simply because it’s not necessary anymore and computers are actually better off without it. Even some of the big-name video games are becoming more accessible through digital forms, thanks to digital distribution forms such as Steam or the Xbox Live Marketplace. Economically, it makes sense for companies to take the digital route in distributing their products. Coding a program is one thing, but burning it to a CD and marketing it through other channels is expensive, which only raises the price for consumers. With digital distribution, consumers aren’t paying for a physical copy. The producer can make an unlimited number of copies with the click of a button, cutting out the middleman and sending the product straight to you. The benefits aren’t

the producer’s alone; without having to meet the needs of the middleman, products can be marked down to incredibly low prices with ease. Steam has become notable for its sales on products, sometimes marking products down as much as 90 percent, if not more. Other digital distribution platforms are taking note of this, and have started doing similar sales with their products. After all, is a physical copy of your media worth the extra $20?

What does this mean for you, the consumer? First of all, online shopping accounts become everything. With iTunes, you cannot access your media without authorizing the device with your information. This realization of the online shopping experience, while convenient, makes protecting yourself all the more important. Protect your passwords, as they

mean more than simply accessing your emails now. Second of all, there will be more competition in the market. Because it has become so easy for producers to distribute products through a variety of channels, some places might be cheaper than others. For example, the same book may have a different price on the Kindle, Nook, or iBooks marketplace. Shop around before committing yourself to a particular store, as it might save you some money in the long run. Finally, you can get involved. There has never been a better time to market yourself or your products than right now. You no longer need to be picked up by a publisher or a record company to make it big. Thanks to companies such as Amazon and Apple, distributing your own media is as easy as it is for the major players in the industry. As a result, the competition has grown considerably, but as the saying goes, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Going from a physical product to a digital one can be a jarring experience, but ultimately beneficial one. By taking care not to put all your eggs in one basket, keeping your passwords and other login information a secret, and exploring the new possibilities in the World Wide Web, you might find that the digital experience is better than you expected. All it takes to get started is a click.

Good-bye, my old friend

T

Jack’s Smack

he time has come for my final column of Jack’s Smack. But unlike many athletes, I know when my time is up and will not try to stretch my career any further than is needed. Four years ago, I came to this campus as a young kid from Chicago not knowing a single person. Today, I sit here as a slightly older kid that is preparing for life after graduation and cherishing the final moments I have with everyone I have met along the way. The beauty of Loras is that the people you meet along the way are never onetime visitors; instead they are familiar faces and friends that help create the community feeling on campus. When I came to Loras I knew I was not ready for the adult world, but now at the tail-end of four years I can say I am ready for the adult world, but the journey would be a lot more fun if I was able to bottle up what I have here and take it with me. Covering nearly all the sports on campus, as well as working for the Dubuque Fighting Saints for a season allowed me the chance to get out and make a name for myself on campus. I never knew my path would lead me to sports editor for “The Lorian,” but it was offered to me my Freshman year, more out of need than anything, and I like to think I found my own niche within the title and have attempted to leave my own mark. As we grow up and mature within ourselves, it does not come down to how you did something, but whether you left a positive mark on what you did and put the most effort into doing it. To put it in perspective, I tend to think what someone would think 50 years from now looking back at the Duhawks of 2013. It’s the idea of someone looking into an archive of “The Lorian” to find out about the inaugural season of Loras’ Lacrosse program or to see what Loras College looked like before the Loras Parkway. The point is that your four years at Loras can be much more enjoyable when you are able to look back and see the mark that you left on it, even if it means losing your keys. Take the student-athletes at Loras for instance. Students come to Loras to play athletics on their own merit, without athletic scholarships, and get to create a legacy for themselves as part of a team and don’t have to worry about the commercialization that comes with Division I sports. As I prepare for my final week as a current Duhawk, I write with the understanding that this will be the last time I ever write about sports in a medium like the newspaper. After this I get to enjoy a short summer break before heading off to Minnesota to learn to sell and create my own niche selling tickets for the Major League Soccer. But I know I can look back on my four years at Loras and not want to change one single thing. Regardless the size of the mark that is left upon your time at Loras, as long as that mark is meaningful to you and fulfills what you wanted out of your time is what counts. So embrace your education, but do not let it overwhelm you. Have fun, but don’t be an idiot, and cheer on your fellow Duhawks. It has been a good run for me, and I am happy to say goodbye because, again, the opportunities ahead are infinite and the work can begin on leaving a mark elsewhere.

Goerdt earns MVP honors By Kayleigh Mcdaniel staff writer

Over the course of three days, the men and women’s track and field teams competed in the Rock Bowl at the Outdoor Conference Championships. The men’s and women’s teams combined collected five conference titles and nine All-Iowa Conference titles. The women’s team finished 4th in the conference and the men’s team finished 3rd. The IIAC is one of the toughest conferences around so though neither team finished first, the athletes put forth a first place effort. The field events were key contributors in scoring points for the women’s team. Junior Katie Langmeier defended her title as the high jump champion this past weekend with a final jump of 5’6”. Senior Caitlin Groeper earned an All-Iowa Conference with her third place finish in the high jump with a final jump of 5’2”. Senior Rachel Kolbeck also defended her title as pole vault champion at a height of 10’6”. Junior Kirsten Schultz earned an AllIowa conference title as runner up in the javelin throw. Schultz threw 117’07” to earn second place, just under a foot behind first place. Junior Laura Wondra finished seventh in the long jump with a length of 16’8” and also finished fifth in the Heptathlon which consists of javelin, shot put, long jump, high jump and 100, 200 and 800 meter dashes. Wondra finished first in all the running events. Sophomores Shay Coleman and Mercedez Kennedy took sixth and seventh in the triple jump. Coleman jumping 33’8.75” and Kennedy jumping 33’1”. Sophomore Morgan Steere took fifth place in the shot put and sixth place in the hammer throw, throwing 39’5” in the shot put and 135’1” in the hammer throw. “I think that as a team we did really well this weekend. The field events did a great job taking conference titles in several events which helped the team out a lot. I am very proud with how we competed this weekend and how strongly we ended the season,” said Kolbeck. First-year Abby Davis advanced to the finals of the 100-meter dash and placed seventh with a time of 12.69 seconds. Sophomore Bri Richardson and first-year Melissa Kroll also advanced to the finals in their races. Scoring points in the 400-meter dash, Richardson placed seventh with a time of 1:00.35 and Kroll placed eighth with a time of 1:00.58. First-year Bri Cook has continuously dropped time in her 5,000-meter run. Cook started the season at 19:31 minutes and ended with a time of 18:34 minutes at conference placing sixth. Sophomore Emily Sotelo placed fourth in the finals of the 400-meter hurdles missing an All-Iowa Conference title by just under a second. The women’s 4x100 meter relay comprised of Richardson, Davis, senior Molly Sieverding and Wondra took sixth

place with a time of 49.74 seconds. Davis and Wondra also helped the 4x400 meter relay to a fourth place finish along with first-year Bri Powers and junior Emily Roth. The 4x800-meter relay made up of Kroll, senior Katie Flogel and juniors Mary Rector and Kellie Wagner also took fourth place with a time of 9:40.49. Wagner, the anchor of the relay had the fastest split of 2:20. On the men’s side, the story of the day was junior Josh Goerdt, who was part of three championships which led to being named IIAC MVP. Goerdt finished first in the 200meter dash (22:18), defended his title as champion in the 400-meter dash (48.38) and anchored the 4x400 meter relay to a first place finish. Sophomore Kyle Ward placed sixth in the finals of the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.38 seconds. First-year Nick Ball finished fifth in the finals of the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.87 seconds. First-year Stedman Foster placed fourth in the finals of the 400-meter dash with a time of 50.13 seconds. First-year Sam Whan took eighth place in both the 800 and 1500-meter runs, running his 800 in a time of 1:58 and his 1500 in a time of 4:01 minutes. Sophomores Rob Howe and Steve Loran earned an All-Iowa conference title. Howe placed third in the 5,000-meter run in a time of 15:17 minutes and Loran placed third in the 10,000-meter run in a time of 32:23 minutes. Senior Austin Steil also earned AllIowa conference, finishing third in the steeplechase with a time of 9:39 minutes. Senior Tim Derr was the runner up in the 110-meter hurdles earning All-Iowa Conference. Ward, Ball and Goerdt along with sophomore Zac Gassman placed second in the 4x100 meter relay with a time of 42.25. Goerdt and Foster along with Sean Lewis and Zach Frey were the champions in the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 3:18.22. “Coming into the race, I knew we had a group of guys that had the potential to run against our competition. It was our first time actually running together due to injuries and other conditions” said Goerdt. “I knew each of my teammates took off with the baton and were ready to compete and had all faith in them to keep us in the race.” Junior Michael Meersman was the runner up in the javelin throw, throwing 182 feet. First-year Keontae Neely placed fourth in the triple jump, jumping 43’7.25”. Senior Sam Ross placed sixth in both the shot put and the discus throw. Throwing 47’8” in the shot put and 143’9” in the hammer throw. “We came up short in a few spots, but for the most part, I was pleased with our efforts this weekend” said coach Bob Schultz. “There is a lot of young potential that can bring nothing but good things to future seasons. We have a tremendous group back for both the men and women.”

After their regular season record of 1921 and 11-15 in conference, the Duhawks saw their season end this weekend in the IIAC tournament. Loras held the lowest seed in the tournament (6th) but surprised many by defeating third seeded Buena Vista by the score of 9-0. Ben Cottrell pitched a complete game shutout, allowing only four hits and walking three. Junior Mark Jablonski stood out on the offensive end, with three hits, two stolen bases, two RBI’s and scored two runs of his own. The Duhawks then fell to Coe and Central by the scores of 3-6 and 0-3, eliminating the team from the tournament. Wartburg eventually went on to win the tournament over Coe in a crazy championship game. The Duhawk’s defense was definitely the strong point of the season. Loras finished first in the conference in ERA at 3.13, first in opponents’ batting average at .246 and second in batters picked off with ten. The Duhawks also allowed the least amount of doubles, triples and runs in the IIAC. Sophomore Danny Fahlgren finished first in Fielding Percentage. Along with Fahlgren, four other Duhawks found their way into the top ten in fielding percentage including first-year Lucas Jacque, junior Connor Reilly, first-year Justin Montalvo and senior Cody Richter. “I think we exceeded other peoples’ expectations,” said assistant coach Dan Wellik.. “Everyone picked us to finish eighth. No one besides ourselves really had high expectations for us. One of our goals was to make the conference tournament which we did.” Wellik went on to reflect on each senior. “Mike Canevello is the ultimate competitor, he really is. He’s a high energy kid and people feed off of him. When Mike Canevello has played well in his career, we as a team have played well. He’s a kid that you love to have on your team.” “Ben Cottrell, every time he’s gone out on the mound he’s given us a chance to win. That’s all you can ask of a pitcher. He has some of the best control of any guy that we’ve had here in the last six or seven years. He’s an extremely competitive kid who always wanted to give us a chance to win.” “Jordan Reis plays the game extremely hard. His last game that he played this season, he broke his finger sliding into second base. He actually got it popped back into place and continued to run and even came back to play an inning of defense. He’s an extremely tough and hard-nosed kid.” “Donny Baran throws more breaking balls than probably any guy I’ve ever had. He was big in key situations. He’s a guy that got us out of innings from the bullpen. He’s a guy that we felt comfortable bringing into any situation.” “Cody Richter’s a kid who can swing the bat. Our guys love him. He’s got a great personality with his teammates. He’s really been able to assimilate himself well two years after transferring here. He’s a guy who really has a lot of juice in his bat and he’s picked up some key hits for us.” “Travis Misner will have probably the biggest impact on our baseball program without having to do anything in regards to baseball. He’s been a national SAC representative, he’s been involved in so many things here on campus. He’s probably one of the most well-known baseball players on campus. He’s battled through injuries; he’s had an injury almost every single year. But at the same time, he’s been very impactful on our program.”

Ode to The Lorian Without Nick Joos, Kevin Harlander, Jack Metz, Ayush Subedi and K.T. Heidorn Nick, you’ve worked so hard for me, it certainly hasn’t been a game, So I feel silly that I still don’t know how to say your last name. You have a great sense of humor and an imagination without fail, I just hope you don’t start World War III with another mass e-mail. Kevin, we’re all so glad you spent the past year selling some ads, I wish you didn’t have to skip town with the other grads. It’s hard to find someone who can sell ice cream to an eskimo, Now I fear our revenue numbers will head right back to skid row. Jack, I can’t say enough about the effort you’ve given for 4 years, When it comes to sports, most people would be reduced to tears. But you’ve kept your enthusiasm and given it your all, Never once fled the scene in search of the wailing wall. Ayush, a mathematics major who also happens to be so creative You don’t see that every day, with both sides of the brain so active. But even more impressive was your desire to get to work, All the silly assignments that you didn’t even think to shirk. K.T., you go about your business so quietly, I barely got to know you, The first time I hear a peep from you is when you’re bidding adieu. We’ll think of you whenever it’s real quiet in the office, Do you have a sister we could hire as an apprentice? I know that the sky is the limit for all of you guys, You somehow always found a way to improvise. Years from now, you’ll think of The Lorian when you’re freezing cold, You might even convince yourself it’s not like getting your teeth pulled.
