Alumna produces film on relationships, social networking By Paige Lambert Trends Reporter There are countless moving parts to the production of a film — anything can go wrong in an instant. One alumna filmmaker, however, has gotten past all the trials to de-

velop her feature-length film “Generation Me.” Ericka Marsalis-LaManna is the writer, producer, director and editor of “Generation Me,” a film that focuses on dealing with relationships in a world that is consumed by social networking. The storyline involves an Austin pop singer who gets into relationship trouble because of social networking and subsequently receives bad advice from her two best friends. Marsalis-LaManna said the idea was born while looking for ways to promote her husband’s hip-hop career. The idea to write and direct a film came from an article about a movie overseas. “I was reading an article on CNN about a filmmaker in the UK who made a low-grade film and did well in film festivals,” Marsalis-LaManna said. “I thought, ‘Well, if he can make that bad of a movie and get awards then we definitely can do better.’” Marsalis-LaManna spent about three months writing the script, looking for locations and finding actors around Austin. Shooting the film took 45 days on a budget of $5,000. Her husband, Ray LaManna, did the sound production and wrote and performedsongs for the film. Cast members helped when they were needed, Marsalis-LaManna said, but that was the extent of her film crew. “These two did more with what they had and took care
of things better than a lot of larger film crews might,” said Melanie Rene, who played the role of the lead’s best friend. “They are really good at thinking outside the box and finding a way to do it.” Marsalis-LaManna developed her passion for art as a photography major at Texas State, benefiting especially from a professor, Burt Pritzker, who taught her to “just go for it.” “He always painted this picture of jumping off a cliff, and at the last second you sprout these little wings and work your way back up,” Marsalis-LaManna said. “He really changed my life.” While LaManna and Marsalis-LaManna brought in their unique talents, René used her acting skills to jump into a role. She had to learn the script within two weeks of shooting. LaManna said Rene didn’t miss a beat. “I produced the music and starred in a lot of scenes with Melanie, which was a big help since I’ve never acted before,” LaManna said. “At one point I wasn’t ready for this scene, and Melanie was calm and kept everything together.” “Generation Me” hit the film festival circuit. It was accepted at six festivals and won awards at two of them. A San Antonio film festival even led to a distribution deal. “Talents really collided to create this film. It was like this happened for a reason,” Ray said. “Everything led up to this moment, and here are with a feature film.”
Go 2 Danz hosts Irish dance lessons in San Marcos By Aisling Niestroy Trends Reporter A centuries-old dance form with roots tracing back to pre-Christian Ireland has found its way to San Marcos. The Inishfree School of Irish Dancing, based out of San Antonio, is a non-profit organization led by certified instructors Neill Reagan and Patrick McCarthy, who recently started offering dance classes at Go 2 Danz Studio. Go 2 Danz Studio hosts Reagan and McCarthy’s Irish dance classes every Tuesday night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Reagan and McCarthy teach classes to people of all age groups, including those with or without prior knowledge of Irish dance. Reagan, a world champion Irish dancer, began dancing at the age of five because his parents wished for their children to carry on their Irish heritage. At age seven, Reagan began touring the
United States with his siblings as the “Reagan Family Dancers.” He received multiple awards and honors for his dancing before settling down in San Antonio to promote the tradition of Irish dancing in Texas. Fellow instructor McCarthy was born in Belfast, Ireland, and started dancing at the age of eight. Throughout his 15-year dance career, McCarthy also won multiple championships as well as the main role in “Lord of the Dance.” McCarthy decided to share his experiences by teaching others after gaining experience around the world. “Neill and I met during a summer camp. We started putting together material and it just clicked,” McCarthy said. “We had very different styles but it was kind of complementary.” Irish dancing is a unique style in which dancers keep their upper bodies stiff while performing fast and intricate footwork to upbeat music played on the bagpipes or the harp. The actual steps in Irish
dance are usually special to each school or dance instructor, although each dance is formed from the same basic elements. The steps are a sequence of foot and leg movements combined with leaps, always starting on the right foot. “People watching ‘Riverdance’ for the first time were very drawn to it and fascinated by the style of dance. But we’ve been doing it since we were six years of age,” McCarthy said. “It’s cultural.” Irish dancing is a very demanding and technical style of dance. Students generally begin taking lessons around age six and retire from performing around age 21. It is a very fast-paced style of dance that requires skill and dedication to compete at a high level. “Irish dancing is something that takes up an awful lot of your time as a child,” McCarthy said. “When other kids were playing video games, we were inside working hard to get where we wanted to be for competitions.”

Five sets give Bobcats first win of season
By Jordan Cole Sports Reporter The Texas State volleyball team won its home opener on Tuesday against formal conference rivals, the Sam Houston State Bearkats. The win was the Bobcat’s first of the season. Texas State handled SHSU both times they faced the Bearkats last year, but the club did as much as they could to turn the tide on Texas State and were willing to scrape for each and every point. “Offensively, they weren’t near as big as us, but they are scrappy,” Chisum said. “Boy, were they a scrappy team.” It was a match that came down to the fifth and final set. Following a 25-22 set win for Texas State, SHSU came out just as they finished the first set — ready to play without being intimidated. Early errors and miscues from Texas State did not help the Bobcats either and the team found themselves down 8-6 early. Some stellar defense at the net by SHSU allowed the Bearkats to expand that lead to 18-10 and put the Bobcats on their heels. The Bobcats could only take the lead once during the set and were never able to recover as they dropped the set 25-12 with a .147 hitting percentage. The Bobcats had to rebound to avoid losing complete momentum and Alexandra Simms, sophomore outside hitter, agreed. An adjustment had to be made in the third set. “The coaches kept on telling me to get my arm faster and put more power behind it, and so I just kept thinking that,” said Simms. “I got it all together in the third, and it worked out well.”
Simms led the team on the night with her career-high 11 kills. She hit two very crucial balls consecutively early on in the third to give the Bobcats back the momentum they needed and put some points on the board. Once the team stopped with their errors, the Bobcats looked like the team that dominated early on, winning the third set 25-15. Chisum still recognizes the team has a lot of work to do to get to a consistently high level of play. “We improved a lot from the weekend but we still have a lot to get done,” Chisum said. “I think it’s just youth and inexperience, and we have to learn to play with each other.” The fourth set was close all the way through with seven ties and three lead changes. Despite an early 11-8 advantage, SHSU scrapped back to take the lead, 12-11. They never looked back, doing just enough down the stretch to take the set 25-21 and force a tie-breaking fifth set. For the fifth and final set, Chisum
brought out older, more experienced players, and the Bobcats went up 8-2. The Bearkats then roared back to eventually bring the fifth set to a 14-14 tie. Ashlee Hilbun, junior middle blocker, who leads the team in kills this season, said she refused to lose at that point. “I was ready to go,” Hilbun said. “I was not about to lose that match. I was ready to win and was going to do anything I could. Getting that kill (late in the fifth set) just got me all fired up and ready to play.” Hilbun earned the 14th and 15th points in the fifth set on back-to-back kills, which all but sealed Texas State’s first triumph of 2012. Caleigh McCorquodale, senior setter, did not play much of the first set but led the team with 20 assists on the night, also collecting 20 digs. Laura Whalen, sophomore defensive specialist, also filled the stat sheet with 26 digs. The Bobcats will play their next game in the Lamar Invitational this weekend. Twitter: @TXStatesman

Linemen beef up as FBS, WAC looms

Amari Deardorff, junior right side, is a two-time All Southland Conference player and a former ballet dancer.
By Jordan Cole Sports Reporter The Texas State volleyball team boasts 25 SLC players in the last 32 years, and four were members of the 2011 SLC championship team. Of those four, one has done it twice: her name is Amari Deardorff. Deardorff said she credits picking up the sport to an old friend in middle school. “My best friend in middle school played, and she really wanted me to play at the time; so I guess that’s really when it started,” Deardorff said. Had it not been for that friend, Deardorff might have concentrated on dancing and never realized her volleyball potential. “I danced and did ballet for 10 years, since I was three, but once I started playing sports, I was done with dance,” Deardorff said. She was once fully immersed in volleyball at Westwood High School, and then Deardorff realized during her junior year going to a major university was an option. “All of my teammates were beginning to commit to other schools and so that’s when it became real to me,” Deardorff said. That year, she won district MVP and started to think about her college of choice. Deardorff said proximity to home was the main reason for her decision to become a Bobcat. Deardorff believes it is all about finding the right fit. “I was talking to a lot of schools but I just always wanted to stay close to home, so Texas State was always high on the list,” Deardorff said. “There is always a place to go. There’s always somewhere to go and there is a right fit for everyone.” Coach Karen Chisum has guided all of the 25 first team all-conference players who have come through her program during the past 32 years and is glad Deardorff found Texas State to be the right fit. “That kid is just an amazing individual,” Chisum said. “She is the kind of player that any coach would love to have on their team. She takes care of business; she is intelligent, she is a 4.0 student, she is morally ethical and is responsible. She is just a delightful person. On top of all that, she has amazing athletic ability.” Right players are usually the best blockers on the team, so having strong right-side players will translate into a better presence at the net for the Bobcats. It’s not always about being big — although Deardorff’s 6’2’’ frame helps — it’s also about the brain. “I would say her biggest attribute, though, would be that she’s smart,” Chisum said. “She doesn’t make dumb plays and she finds a way to get it done. She sees the block, she sees the defense, and finds a way to put the ball on the floor.” Twitter: @TxStatesman
The transition to Football Bowl Subdivision status will become official on the field against Houston this Saturday. Preparation started shortly after the 3514 loss to Sam Houston State in 2011. The top level of college football requires a stronger and better-equipped team to handle the rigorous schedule that programs making the transition often face early on. The FBS programs are much deeper in talent and often possess greater speed and athleticism. One of the ways Texas State has been preparing is through strength and conditioning training this summer. “We are not playing Southland Conference teams anymore,” said Zach Crawford, freshman offensive lineman. “We are playing the big boys, (FBS) football. We don’t have a lot of height in the middle of the line, so we have to make up for it with our technique, strength and how we play on the field.” For college football athletes, the weight room can be a nice start to pack on speed and strength. Coaching staff all across the country expect their athletes to train hard in the summer, since they cannot coach or train the players themselves due to NCAA rules and regulations. Coach Dennis Franchione was pleased with all of his players when they
reported for fall camp in August, especially the offensive linemen, who reported big weight gains from the summer. Franchione’s desires were answered as he now gets to work with a beefier line upfront. “We are bigger and we are stronger,” Franchione said. “It has been very vivid to me after watching the first week of practice that our conditioning is very good. They’ve handled our practices very well and our strength has improved.” Franchione expected his football players, especially those who lie in the trenches, to gain weight and muscle in order to stay healthy for the Bobcats’ first season in the WAC. The Bobcat coaching staff received more power on the line, and said most other areas improved as well. “The whole team had numbers increase,” said Thaddeus Watkins, offensive lineman. “From freshmen all the way up to seniors, we saw good things. At ‘Night of Champions’ we had two guys cleaning 375-380 (pounds). We got school records in squat and incline. Almost all of the school records have been broken since the new coaches have been here.” Watkins, 6 feet, 5 inches, 285 pound senior, felt compelled to become a leader in the weight room. Watkins took on a role of authority and pushed his fellow linemen and Bobcats to compete every
day to get better. “I was just making sure to set an example,” Watkins said. “Being there every day, showing everybody that I am here every day, [to] try to give my teammates the inspiration to do as I do. We had everybody here this summer. (Blake) Cundiff (Strength and Conditioning Coach) had a great program in place to see increases like that.” Another senior offensive lineman, Adley Eshraghipour (6 feet, 4 inches, 265 pounds) had more to accomplish this past summer. Eshraghipour made a position change after last season, on top of the normal workout sessions the team went through. Crawford (6 feet, 2 inches, 298 pounds) had the benefit of going through a redshirt year, which can sometimes give a young player an advantage going into his first year of playing on the field. Crawford used his true freshman season and his off-season to his advantage as he competes for a spot on the offensive line. “I was able to go through (summer workouts) last summer,” Crawford said. “(The redshirt year) gave me a boost and a chance to hit the weight room hard for an entire year. Being able to watch DJ Hall in practice last fall gave me a chance to learn not only physically, but mentally as well.” Twitter: @jbrewer32

Bobcat News and Notes
INSIDE THE LINES
Pep in their Step
Texas State athletics hosted a pep rally for new students and anyone else who wanted to attend last Sunday. An estimated 650 attended the rally, which featured a portion of the Texas State band, Strutters, Boko and new gameday chants. Athletic director Larry Teis, President Denise Trauth, Coach Dennis Franchione and cornerback Darryl Morris addressed the crowd about the upcoming season. Then, students were given the opportunity to tour and roam the new North Side Complex, scheduled to be fully completed by Sep. 1.
The Curry Sisters
A trio of sisters is continuing to make their mark on Texas State soccer. Britney Curry, the first of the sisters, came to Texas State in 2007 and went on the shatter the Bobcat record books with 37 career goals. Three years later, sister Sydney Curry joined the program and played with Britney in 2010, starting in six games her freshman year. This year, the final Curry sister, Lynsey, decided to come add to the Curry chapters at Texas State. While Sydney plays at the midfield position, Britney and Lynsey play at the forward spot. Lynsey will be wearing Britney’s number and according to Britney, Lynsey has a very good chance of rivaling her old totals. “She’s been able to watch and learn,” Britney Curry said. “She’s gotten a bunch of practice and she’s so strong, built to last. It’s so exciting that Lindsey is there now, and I just know that she’s going to knock it out of the park. She’s wearing number four, too. I have a feeling she’s going to fill some shoes.” Sydney is glad to have another sister join her on the field. She said she feels that playing with Lynsey, like playing with Britney, only makes the sisters stronger. “It’s actually exciting,” Sydney Curry said. “I get to help her like Britney helped me. I get to show her the ropes, then she’ll get to do her own thing once she gets going. It’s just fun. I’m excited to play with her and see what she can do on and off the field, too.” Lynsey could have gone to a different program, taken a different path, created a legacy under the Lynsey name, not under the Curry name. But Lynsey doesn’t feel shadowed, doesn’t feel overwhelmed. To the Currys, it’s always been about being Bobcats. “If anything I use (my sisters) as motivation,” Lynsey Curry said. “Britney came in here and destroyed the records and really helped the team, and I came here to do that too. Playing with my sister for two more years is really exciting for me because we work so well together. I’m a Curry and I’m the last one. Hopefully, I can leave a legacy here too.” For Coach Kat Conner, when asked if she would ever get tired of coaching the Currys, Conner’s answer was pretty point blank: I’ll never be tired of them. “The Curry family is outstanding,” Conner said. “They are just hard-working people and come in every day and do their very best. When you get a person like that the first time and you realize the

Sydney Curry, junior midfielder, and sister Lynsey Curry, freshman forward, keep the tradition alive by playing side by side on the field for the Bobcats. siblings are the same way, you just want to keep having them.” The tradition could continue in other families along with the Currys. Conner said there are other younger siblings of other players on the team that she would love to recruit to Bobcat country. “If we can start that tradition, that’s how you build it,” Conner said. “It’s kind of like how the Aggies did it. We are building that tradition of always wanting to be a Bobcat.” For Britney, this will be an “agonizing season,” as she watches from the sidelines every single game. For Sydney, she has continued the Curry tradition and kept their last name on the roster sheet for the sixth straight season. For Lynsey, being last has never meant she couldn’t finish first.
Amount of goals scored in the first half this year. The Bobcats have, however, outscored opponents in the second half 6-4.
With Sydney Curry’s goal in Texas State’s 3-0 victory over the Panthers Tuesday, the Curry sisters have scored five goals against Prairie View A&M in the last three years.
Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona Diamondback and former Texas State Bobcat, has increased his batting average from .250 to .287 in 2012 and is seventh on the team in batting average. His 18 homeruns already trump the eight from 2011 that he hit in 48 games with the club last year. Goldschmidt has appeared in 116 games in 2012, third most of any Arizona player.
Small town powerhouse Boise State’s football team left the WAC in 2010, but all their other sports had remained in the conference. However, now all other sports are moving to the Big West Conference, starting July 1, 2013.

Ali Myers, sophomore midfielder, attempts a goal against Praire View A&M Aug. 28 at the Bobcat Soccer Complex. By Odus Evbagharu Sports Reporter Coming into tonight’s matchup, Texas State (2-2) had lost two straight and was looking to get back on the winning path with a win against Prairie View A&M (03) in the Bobcats’ home opener. Texas State delivered with a win against the Panthers, who were unable to end an early season losing streak. The Bobcats were led by the performances of Sydney Curry, junior midfielder, who had a goal and an assist, and Taylor Kelley, senior midfielder, who scored her first goal of the season Tuesday night. “We regrouped, found some energy, and regained some confidence, which I think put them on their heels,” Conner said. “We started to go at the goal, and that’s always fun because you know when that happens something special is going to happen. I think we did a great job all-around.” The Bobcats struggled to find their groove in the first half of play. Texas State did not manage to put any of its nine shots in the back of the net in the first half. The Bobcats had an opportunity four minutes into the match when Kelley sent a pass into the box,
and Serena Hines, senior forward, shot it over the goalie’s head, just missing over the crossbar. In the 24th minute, Hines had another chance to redeem herself when she divided two defenders, but the shot went over the goal again, missing wide right. With the first half closing down in the 37th minute, freshman forward Bridget Richie sent a promising pass to Felicia Leask, junior forward, who was all alone with the goalkeeper. The Bobcats had a great chance to go up 1-0 before the half ended, but the shot went right into the goalie’s hands, another missed first-half opportunity. The Bobcats and the Panthers went into halftime with a stalemate, 0-0. “We had some jitters in the first half,” Kelley said. “It being our first home game and all, but we came back strong in the second half and got the win in front of the home crowd. I felt that we did really well and came back in the second half.” Texas State came out in the final 45 minutes attacking and looking to score. The Bobcats took 14 shots in the second half and managed to put three of the shots in the goal.
In the 68th minute, Hines gave a cross into the box and Kelley topped it off with a goal from about eight yards out, ending the goal drought. Later on in the 80th minute, Curry scored on an assist from Gabbi Cottee. In the 88th minute, Curry returned the favor on a corner kick that bent and directed right to Cottee for Texas State’s game-sealer. The Bobcats ended the night with a total of 23 shots, 11 on target. “Coach’s halftime talk usually picks us up, and we came out on fire and put some results on the board,” Curry said. “I had my corner kicks a little bendy, had one go toward the goal, get deflected and go in. I got a little lucky.” The defense held firm by only allowing two shots in the first half, neither on target, and did not allow a single shot in the second half. The Bobcats have beaten the Panthers in four straight meetings and have outscored them 18-0. Texas State will try to keep their momentum when they go on the road to face Houston Baptist (22) at Sorrels Field in Houston at 7 p.m. Friday. @TState_ Sports18
