numbers, city officials decided it would be cleaner and more cost effective to build an en­ tirely new natural gas burning plant. The old plant was con­ structed in 1939 and expanded over the years. The new location, slightly east of Windmill Island, was chosen because of its access to water for cooling, proxim­ ity downtown, and location of 138kV transmission lines to carry the generated electricity

Renderings show an attractive facility setback on the property with green space, new public walking paths and water fea­ tures around the perimeter of the site. The H B P W website mentions that the new facility will also be able to accommo­ date public tours. The facilitywill cost between $200 and $225 million to com­ plete and will be funded by the biggest bond issue in the his­ tory of the city. Demolition of existing buildings on the site began over the summer as the former Atmosphere Processing, heat treating facility, and sever­ al houses and smaller buildings met the wrecking ball. Major construction on the site isset to begin in the early spring after a contractor is selected. Over approximately the next two years one will be able to watch the power plant rise in dramatic fashion.

Tragedy in the high mountains of Nepal SliiiNliAm S h u b h a m Sa p k o t a W

Writer's note: W h e n people think about Nepal, they think about M o u n t Everest. I a m from Nepal and most of m y interactions at Hop e College have been regarding Mo u n t Everest and if I have climbed it or not. Unfortunately I have not, and the recent accident in the Himala­ yas can attest to h o w risky climbing mountains are.

The worst trekking accident, in a decade occurred after a storm hit the mountain range last Wednesday. However, this mountain range is not Mt. Ever­ est; Annapurna range is not well-known by the people out­ side of Nepal. This trekking circuit is about 150 miles and is one of the lon­ gest trek distances in the world. As of yesterday, 39 people have been reported dead and almost 400 have been rescued from the trailwhile the search continues. While rescue efforts from the Nepalese army have been per­ sistent, the degrading weather has made the search extremely difficult. At the same time, the authorities are trying to improve the flow of information regard­ ing those who are caught up in the disaster. So far the govern­ ment has come up with several

Airr i• r % • different lists of people who survived or perished during the incident. They are trying to nar­ row it down to a single list so that the search is more credible. People amongst the dead are from Nepal, Japan, Israel, Cana­ da, India, Slovakia, Vietnam and Poland.

the weather, if they had hired a guide. The Thorang Pass is one of the final crossings in the trek­ king circuit which lies on the tenth highest mountain range in the world and crossing it with­ out mountaineering experts could be dangerous in harsh weather. Alan Hinkes, a British moun­ taineer who has climbed all 14 of the world s highest mountains commented that the unpredict­ ability of the weather can make these routes dangerous. “Most of the people who are there are not experienced moun­ taineers. They’re trekkers or hol­ idaymakers. You don’t need any massive hill walking experience to go trekking in Nepal. You’re on footpaths between villages,” Hinkes said giving his impres­ sion of Nepali trekking routes. “Most of the time you're on made-up trails between villages and tea shops, and it's fairly dry, lovely weather. But it can be unpredictable anywhere. Obvi­ ously it’s more severe at 5,000m.” The government is now plan­ ning on placing a new policy whereby independent trekkers cannot take on treacherous routes by themselves, unless supervised by experienced per­ sons.

Four more years for governor Rick Snyder Alex Belica C a m p u s C o -E d i t o r

There are few politicians who deserve a second term as much as Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder. Four years isa long time in politics. It’s easy to forget how far we’ve come especially when the vast majority of Hope College students were not old enough to vote in the last guber­ natorial election. Wh e n Snyder took office at the beginning of 2011, Michigan was still recovering from one of the worst recessions in decades, which saw two of the state’s big­ gest employers, G M and Chrys­ ler, file for bankruptcy. The un­ employment rate skyrocketed to 11.7 percent, one of the worst in the nation. The state govern­ ment was in equally dire straits as general funds declined along with income and property tax revenues within the state. With only $2.2 million on hand in the state’s rainy day fund, there was little the legis­ lators could do to cushion the blow that declining tax revenues inevitably brought. A divided legislator and Governor Jennifer Granholm were slow to come up with solutions, leading to mul­ tiple government shutdowns that saw the majority of state employees, including the State Police, temporality laid off. Even the “solutions" of the Granholm era were far from perfect. Ican stillremember try­

underfunded pension accounts of public employees prevent­ ing the state from accumulat­ ing massive future liabilities. The state’s rainy day fund has also ballooned and is projected to pass the $500 million mark in 2015. This fund is important because it can provide the state with a cushion when tax revenue declines due to some future re­ cession. Snyder has proven to be a very pragmatic and moder­ ate political leader bucking the majority of his party at times to effect change within the state. Nowhere is his leadership more apparent than his handling of floundering local governments like the City of Detroit.

Ebola: a global pandemic

Will the Republicans take the Senate after recent elections? Andrew Gomez-Seoane W


C o -E d i t o r

As the Nov. 4 election fast approaches, party leaders are feeling a sense of urgency in the final weeks to pull together ev­ ery stop for their respective can­ didates. This midterm election offers only a handful of competi­ tive senate and congressional seats that both parties are eyeing for.;Republicans have used their control of the majority of state governorships to redistrict most of the congressional republican seats to their advantage. This leaves very few up for grabs and Democrats are more likely to have to defend a host of com­ petitive seats that were located in districts where presidential candidate Mitt Romney won by a slim plurality or came close to winning against president Obama. More than half of the 10 competitive senate seats are currently held by Democrats in states that were carried by Mitt Romney during the 2012 elec­ tion. As the months passed we have witnessed a shiftin many of the southern and western held seats where it seems Republi­ cans Phil Cassidy, Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner, Joni Ernst, and Dan Sullivan have a slight lead over their Democrat counter­ parts. Incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell has pulled ahead over Alison Lundergan Grimes as national democrats have an­ nounced that they will no lon­ ger be focusing on unseating the senate minority leader. Other incumbents such as Sen. Pat Roberts are essentially tied with independent challenger Greg Orman and the race to unseat South Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan has tightened considerably in the last few weeks as Thom Tillis began his renewed assault on the airwaves. This leaves two races in the mix. In one of the more impor­ tant races to fill outgoing Geor­ gia Sen. Saxby Chambliss's seat, successful businessman David Perdue isup againstthe daughter offormer Georgia governor Sam Nunn. In recent days Michelle Nunn has managed to open a

small lead in recent polling as Democrats shift their fundrais­ ing efforts to the Peach State in a sign that they believe they may have a chance at defeating Perdue with Nunn’s name rec­ ognition playing in her favor. Republicans have begun to pour millions into the race as shifting patterns allowed them to focus on more competitive races such as Georgia's even while Perdue is favored to win. Meanwhile, in an unexpected turn of events, former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown has managed to close the gap between him and incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. In what was thought to be a sol­ id win for the Democrats, after months of tying Shaheen to the president’s agenda and policies with the current Ebola outbreak, the residents of N e w Hampshire may be having second thoughts about their former governor. If Brown can continue to cut into Shaheen’s lead he may be able to slip by with a win. While many expect a Re­ publican pick-up of at least six to seven senate seats as well as a handful of house seats, any­ thing can happen from now until election day. Rest assured that the political mudslinging will continue to ramp up in the coming days as both sides ag­ gressively push for a smear cam­ paign against their opponents. In what has been seen as a low turnout year for voters, the en­ thusiasm gap between the two parties favors the conservatives. Ultimately, who decides to show up to the polls on that cold Tues­ day in November may decide the outcome of this election

M O D E R N DAY PLAGUE— A health worker sprays a man who is suspected to be dying due to Ebola In Liberia. West Africa has struggled the most since the outbreak in December, 2013. Cullen Smith G




On Oct. 10, 2014, epidemiol­ ogist Anne Purfield of the C D C was interviewed by N P R Storycore. She describes her experience in an Ebola clinic in a small Si­ erra Leone village, in which she said:“By the time we had arrived, more than 20 nurses had died... The hospital staffwould line the little roads as they carried out the bodies of their hospital staff. They’ve taken care of their own colleagues and watched them all die, one after another after an­ other." It is the heartbreaking and tragic stories like those of Dr. Anne Purfield that capture the severity of the medical crisis in West Africa. To understand the implications of Ebola in our modern world, an examination must first be made into the his­ tory of this deadly virus and its current epidemic. Ebola Viral Disease (Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever) is a m a m ­ malian-based virus that origi­ nated in 1976, around the re­ gion that is now South Sudan. The disease is characterized by early influenza-type symptoms that rapidly progress into severe vomiting, diarrhea, and dehy­ dration. If left untreated, death may occur from internal bleed­ ing and organ failure. In investigating the transmis­ sion of the disease, it is found that it spreads through a variety of methods. A typical outbreak is introduced through the con­ sumption of bushmeat, or nondomesticated game animals. It is thought that fruit bats are the source of transmission amongst other mammals in the environ­ ment. Once an infected animal is killed, infection usually oc­ curs with direct contact to the blood of the butchered animal. Amongst humans, the disease spreads through direct contact with any bodily fluids. In this current outbreak, however, in­ fection spreads predominantly through the diarrhea and vomit of infected patients. Usually, a person does not know they are infected for several days before exhibiting symptoms. The disease has been preva­

lent throughout Western and Central Africa since its initial outbreak. Ebola outbreaks have occurred every few years since 1976, ranging in deaths from 0 to 400 and mortality rates be­ tween 53 to 88 percent. None of the previous outbreaks have had the intensity or impact of the current strain of Ebola. When examining the “case zero” of the current outbreak, it is believed that the epidemic started when a 2-year-old child was rushed into the emergency medical clinic in the small West African village of Meliandou, Guinea on Dec. 24, 2014. Af­ ter experiencing a fever, severe vomiting, and dehydration, the child died. It was later report­ ed that the toddler's sister and grandmother developed similar symptoms, and subsequently died. Their bodies, in accordance with traditional rituals, were washed and prepared for burial. In the days following the funeral, several attendees developed the deadly virus. Healthcare work­ ers, traveling to and from the village were then exposed and infected. By the end of July 2014, the disease had spread to Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria leav­ ing over 800 dead in itswake. Early August brought global attention to the highly-infectious disease. O n August 6, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) activated its Level 1 Re­ sponse Emergency Operations Command, indicating the sever­ ity of the disease. O n August 8, the World Health Organization declared a global health emer­ gency. After a month of increasing infections and deaths, a United Nations Security Council met to discuss the outbreak. At the council, the president of Doc­ tors Without Borders Joanne Liu informed the United Nations on Sept. 3 of the conditions at the infection zone. She said, "Six months into the worst Ebola epidemic in history, the world is losing the battle to contain it.” In response to the United Nations council, several coun­ tries committed support to West Africa. The United States pledged $500 million and over 3,000 troops to aid the plagued

region. President Barack Obama requested another $88 million from Congress. The Pentagon started organizing efforts to de­ liver supplies and build 17 ad­ ditional clinics as well as train hospital staff. Late September and early October maximized fears of Ebola, especially on a national scale. On Sept. 15, Liberian Marthalene Williams was driv­ en to a local Ebola clinic by her neighbor, Thomas Eric Duncan. Duncan reportedly carried the sick Williams into and out of the car. She would later die. Duncan, who was intent on visiting rela­ tives in the United States, did not report to Liberian officials about his experience with Ebola and boarded a plane bound for Fort Worth. O n Sept. 24, he started expe­ riencing flulike symptoms. He was administered antibiotics and painkillers and sent home. Over a week later, on Sept. 30, he was readmitted to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, and became the firstcase of Ebola in the United States. He would die on Oct. 8. Shortly after two nurses present when Duncan was infected would go on to contract the disease. Duncan’s case ignited a storm ofprotests over the management of the outbreak both at home and abroad. It was revealed that Duncan had waited three hours in a waiting room before being readmitted. While treating Duncan, medical staff did not wear full hazmat suits, and no informa­ tion was relayed regarding Dun­ can's travel abroad. A hospital spokesperson admitted that some public statements from the hospital were inaccurate. Including Duncan, there have been over 4,500 total deaths in the outbreak, with around 3,500 of those in the last2 months. Al­ though numerous countries are cooperating to contain the dis­ ease, their efforts seem almost useless. Anne Purfield summarized the sentiment of those treat­ ing Ebola on the frontline when she said: “I felt like we were on a ship on the water... there were so many holes. W e just kept bail­ ing water and bailing water and weren’t making any difference."

Latino radio show rocks Hope’s airwaves Alicia Ghastln A


C o -E d i t o r

“Latin Flavor” is a radio show on the Hope College stu­ dent-run radio station, W T H S 89.9 Holland, airing Thurs­ days from 4 to 5 p.m. with disc jockey, Jean Luc Miralda (’17). The program features music from throughout the Americas including the ethnic music of Miralda’s home country, Hon­ duras. “I believed that there was something missing in the Hope College community and decid­ ed to spice things up a little bit with Latin music. It brings my culture to Hope, [a perspec­ tive] which many people like,” Miralda said. He tries to bring a variety of music to his show by playing not just Honduran m u ­ sic, but by playing traditional music, merengue, salsa and pop hits from Central America and the Caribbean. Miralda presents "Latin Flavor” in English to engage the entire community. He also seeks to promote events spon­ sored by the Office of Multicul­ tural Education and Latin Stu­ dent Organization. “I believe ethnic music should have a greater presence on campus. Ethnic music is the reflection of a culture and their traditions. It is through ethnic music that people can actu­ ally understand other cultures,”

Although Hope’s student body is Miralda’s target audi­ ence for his show, the Hispanic community of Holland also lis­ tens. “I have encountered many Latinos around Holland who have thanked me for playing the music and for having the show.” “I would say Latin Flavor is a fun, creative and informal show. It is just like the Latin culture, which just ‘goes with the flow,’” Miralda said. Each week he searches YouTube's Vevo channels to discover new Latin hits and genres. “Other than that, I usually know a lot about my music, and I just play what I love and what I know is always a hit in Latin countries,” Miralda said.

W T H S is a licensed radio station and a student-run orga­ nization. The station offers stu­ dent programming in the after­ noons and evenings, along with programmed music throughout the day. Many students, like Miralda, seek to share their voice and perspective with cam­ pus over the air waves. Milralda is also a member of the W T H S Executive Board and acts as promotions director for the station. He is also a leader on Student Congress and with the Latino Student Organization. Tune into W T H S 89.9 F M or listen online with your Hope ID at to sup­ port Miralda’s show or to find more information about the station and its many programs.

The soundtrack, the costume de­ sign, even the T V newscasts about Charles Manson and his Satanic cult really made me feel like this movie was shot in 1967. Just like “The Conjuring”, “A n ­ nabelle” doesn't rely on com­ puter generated effects to make things look creepy. Most of the set pieces were completely practical, and that’s something I’m a big fan of. I’m not saying that computer generated effects can’t look good, I just don't

There are numerous nods to the original movie, some ob­ vious and others more subtle, but those who haven't seen it won't feel too left out. They’re well-hidden enough through­ out “Annabelle” that they don’t stick out in an annoying way.

Men's golf continues to dominate Duncan MacLean S taff W


The Flying Dutchmen took to the course last week with con­ trol of first place in the MIAA, a position not foreign to them over the past decade, but with Trine University just ten strokes behind, Hope College needed to perform like champions to take home the title. Perform they did. Hope fin­ ished with a score of 302, earn­ ing them third place at the fi­ nal jamboree and their second consecutive M I A A title. Hopes Collin Breit (15) of Muskegon, Michigan led the way with a tournament best 71, followed by his teammates Evan Telzerow (15), Ben Lanting (15), and Winton Munch (17) who all brought home a 77 on the day. Ben Lewis (15) rounded out the group with a solid 81. Trine and Calvin College finished ahead of Hope with a group score of 297 and 299 respectively, but the five stroke lead by Trine was not

enough for the Thunder to over­ take Hope and their season total of 2,389 strokes. “It is an individual sport but as a team we work together to make each other better,” Munch said. "We always encourage each other and cheer each other on to make that putt, pipe the drive, or get up and down to save par.” Hope and Trine have been battling for the lead all season. No other teams finished first at any M I A A jamboree in 2014. This 2014 Hope Championship is the Flying Dutchmen’s second in a row and 12th in the past 16 seasons, making it safe to say that Hope golf has dominated the 21st century. This winning tradition has been upheld by longtime head coach Bob Ebels. Ebels has led the Dutchmen for 24 years and has captured 12 of Hope's 18 Golf titles. Hope golfers cleaned up the hardware portion of this years championship. In addition to the team title, four golfers earned

year in the league he became the third Hope golfer in history to take home both honors, twice. “Winning it again this year was a goal of mine after taking it last year. I was not expecting to repeat, but itwas a goal." Munch said. “It is just an amazing feel­ ing and all the work and time I put into ithas paid off.” Munch was also expectedly placed on the All-MIAA first team after his tremendous suc­ cess this season. He was joined on the first team by two Hope teammates: Breit and Lanting. Telzerow earned a place on the All-MIAA second team, giving Hope the highest representation of any team. Hope has earned the right to host the final two 18-hole rounds of next springs N C A A qualifying tournament. Hope earned the MIAA's confer­ ence bid last year to play in the tournament and finished 17th in the nation, tying their second highest finish ever.

Volleyball takes record to 22-0 Cullen Smith S taff W


This weekend, the Hope Col­ lege volleyball team continued on its road to perfection, re­

maining with the best start in Hope volleyball history, an im­ pressive 22-0 record. The Flying Dutch kicked off the weekend doubleheader on

Saturday against the DePauw University Tigers. Throughout the match, senior outside hitter Jenna Grasmeyer (’15) led the team with 20 kills and 13 digs.







HOLLAND 616.399.9461


Junior Lauren Hazekamp (T6) led in assists, compiling a sea­ son-high 50 assists along with a match-high 21 digs. Tying her teammate with digs was defen­ sive specialist, Allie Mitchell (T6) who totaled 21 digs. Also notable was defensive specialist Elyse Maley (’15) who recorded 20 digs. The Flying Dutch even­ tually took down 106 digs over the Tigers 84 digs. After a long, four-set match, the Flying Dutch capped off the match with a 2516, 23-25, 25-23, 25-18 victory. In a stunning three-set win,25-20, 25-15, 25-19, against the Wheaton Thunder, the Fly­ ing Dutch continued their streak, claiming their 22nd straight win and remaining un­ defeated in M I A A conference play. One key highlight of the match came from Grasmeyer, who tied a school record for kills in a three-set match, with a match total of 21 kills and a striking 43 total attempts sta­ tistic. Also helping to lead the Dutch were Anna Lynch (’15) and A m y Vanderstoep (15) who both seized 8 kills during the match. Again leading in assists was Hazekamp, who recorded 38 assists during the match. Jayne Kessel (16) also helped in the defensive effort, leading with 15 digs. The double header this weekend summarizes the work­ ing attitude and winning power ofthis team. With playoffseason fast approaching, the Hope Fly­ ing Dutch appear prepared to compete. “Our goals are the same as they always are: win a confer­ ence championship,, and make a run in the NCAA," Lynch said earlier this year. The Flying Dutch go on to play Albion College on Oct. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at home.

Hope College men's soccer team fell to its rival Calvin Col­ lege last Saturday. The Dutch­ men were unable to find the back of the net in front of a season-record Homecoming crowd of 2,192. Calvin’s Travis Vegter and Isky Van Doorne recorded both of Calvins goals in the sec­ ond half. Even though the firsthalfwas scoreless, plenty of shots were made. There were ten total: six from Calvin and four from Hope. Five of Calvins shots were on goal, and unfortunately for the Dutchmen, only one of Hope’s was. It came from forward Josh Hagene (T7). The second half started off in the same style. Itwasn’t until the 63rd minute that Vegter gave Calvin the lead with an unas­

sisted goal offa deflection. Itwas Vegter's 18th goal this season, making him the fourth-ranked goal scorer in the N C A A Divi­ sion III men’s soccer standings. The next shot in the game ended in another Calvin goal. Van Doorne took a pass from Vegter and made it past Hope’s keeper, Ethan Beswick (’16) in the 72nd minute. In Hope’s attempts to turn the tables around, midfielder Gavin Midlam (T5) was the only one who could produce a shot, but it was blocked. It was Hope’s only shot in the second half. Calvin made nine. Of Calvin’s 15 shots, nine were on goal. Hope had only one shot on goal for the entire game, the lowest this season for the team. Beswick played the full 90 minutes and made seven saves, five in the first half and two in

the second. As far as discipline goes, two yellow cards were dealt during the game, one for each team. Hope’s Corey Stelk (’15) was given the first one in the 17th minute, and Van Doorne took the second in the 56th. This was the Dutchmen’s second loss to Calvin this sea­ son. Their first came on Sept. 23 when they fell4-1. “W e had a great game plan going in and executed it for a majority of the game, but we weren’t able to capitalize on our chances,’ senior captain Connor Kogge (15) said. “Playing a team with the caliber of Calvin, you have to execute for 90 minutes and finish chances when they’re presented.” Hope’s record has fallen to 12-4 overall and 7-3 in confer­ ence play.

plined play. From kickoff to the first goal at the end of the 21st minute, Hope’s defense didn’t allow a single shot from the Comets. The Dutch would even­ tually outshoot the Comets 14 to three.

in the M I A A behind Calvin, who continues their undefeated streak in conference play with a 10-0 record. Hope will look to bounce back from this loss against Oliv­ et on Oct. 25 at 2:30 p.m in an­ other conference matchup. There are just three games left in the regular season with the M I A A tournament starting on Nov. 5. Hope won the tour­ nament last year in a dramatic 5-4 shootout against Calvin. The Dutch have a chance to host. “Calvin is a very good side and has done very well in confer­ ence play,” Kogge said. “It’s very difficult to beat the same team 3 times in a season and when our team isfiringon allcylinders, we have the talent and experience to repeat as M I A A tournament champions and make a deep run into the N C A A tournament.”

Scoring for Hope was ignited by a breakaway goal by Erin Jipping (’15), assisted by Elizabeth Perkins (T7). During the match, Jipping would compile three shots, two of them on goal, and one being an assist. The second halfsaw an offen­ sive effort from the Dutch, who would go on to score three more goals by the end of the match. Within the first three min­ utes of the start of the second half, senior forward Nora Kirk (’15) received the ball from Ji­ pping and tapped it in for her sixth goal of the season. Hope netted their third, only a minute after Kirk’s goal. With an assist by Maria DeShaw (’15), Perkins nailed a back post head­ er off the corner for her sev­ enth goal of the season. Perkins would lead the team in shots during the match with five, three of them on goal. Scoring was capped off for the Flying Dutch in the 54th minute by defender DeShaw (’15). In her first goal of the sea­ son, DeShaw sent a 28-yard free kick sailing into the Olivet net, giving the Hope a 4-0 lead. While remaining offensively powerful, the rest of the game was mostly a defensive effort for Hope. Senior goalkeeper Kat Dickson (’15) maintained a per­ fect save average throughout the match. “W e have really been focused on making each game the most important game this season," DeShaw said. “As a team we are very determined and driven and don’t like to settle. I think we have a good thing going right now. W e have been successful so far and I am looking forward to see how much this team can do.” With the win behind them, the Flying Dutch remain at the top of their competition, rank­ ing No. 1 in M I A A play. The Fly­ ing Dutch compete in their next match at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at Saint Mary’s College.

The Flying Dutchmen hit the pool for their first competition over the weekend. Saturday’s M I A A relay invitational has be­ gun every swim season for well over 30 years, gathering every swimmer and diver from the league for a fun day of non-traditional events, featuring an all relay lineup and synchronized diving eVents. 'Tfie meet is not scored, and no1'Winner is declared. It is a chance for teams to break up the intense training ofthe beginning of the season and get a feel for the competition in the league. Hope College performed to the best of their ability and took home one win on Saturday. The

womens 1500 relay team of Peyton Hoff (T7), Lindsay Wiederhold (T6) and Chloe Palajac (T8) won the distance event by 18 seconds over Alma College. The meet began with the 200 medley relay in which the Hope women finished second, and the men finished fifth. Jorgie Wat­ son (T6) had the fastest split of the meet in her breaststroke leg with a 31.22. In the 200 backstroke relay, the women earned fourth while the men took sec­ ond. The mens team showcased some young power on Hope’s roster, featuring two freshmen and two sophomores. The men and women took third and fourth respectively in the 200 breaststroke relay. Hope flexed their depth in

the 500. progressive relay when the women took fourth and fifth place while the men took third and fifth. Returning national qualifier Molly Meyer (T7) an­ chored the fourth place 200 fly relay with a 26.84 split, the sec­ ond fastest in the event. Hope’s men took third and fifth in the event.

In the 400 Individual medley relay, the women took fifth while the men took fourth. Finally, closing out the meet in one ofthe two relays that will ac­ tually be swum during the regu­ lar season, Hope’s women took

third and fifth,and the men took fourth and fifth. The Dutchmen showed good depth at the meet with strong performances from the B, C and D relay teams in each event. His­ torically this is a typical result for Hope in its long history of success. Coach John Patnott recog­ nizes the fun nature of the relay meet and always makes sure to show up with his athletes tired. “The purpose of this meet is to race hard and introduce you back to the pressure of compe­ tition,” Patnott said. “If you put good effort into a race and split the worst time ofyour lifewe are right where we need to be.” !While Hope did not top many o| the relays, they did have a few

stellar individual performances. "Our freshmen classes showed they are ready to step up and be a part of the scoring team when that time comes, and our veter­ an swimmers fell right back into the rhythm of racing fast oppo­ nents,”Austin Veltman, assistant coach, said. “This meet really isn’t about speed, nobody has that yet. It’s about getting used to compe­ tition again and getting reac­ quainted with the league and having some fun in the process,” Micah Sail (’16) said. Hope begins the regular sea­ son with a home meet against Alma on Saturday, Oct. 25. With this being a scored meet, expect the team to be in fighting shape and ready to bring itto the Scots.

O n Saturday, Oct. 18, the Hope College football team de­ feated the Comets of Olivet Col­ lege with some last-second he­ roics on homecoming weekend. The Flying Dutchmen trailed for much of the game, but were able to recover and secure the 42-35 victory. Olivet was sure to give the Dutchmen a tough Saturday as the Comets looked looked to se­ cure another M I A A Conference win. On the other hand, Hope was looking to still get in the M I A A win column after gaining some ground after last week’s win against Rockford. “Going in to Saturday’s game Iwas expecting a dog fight,”A n ­ drew Lucas (’17) said, "From all of the film that we watched throughout the week we knew that they had a high-powered offense.” To start the game, the Hope offense was the first to strike. With 12:36 on the clock, Robbie Kish (’16) threw a 31-yard touch­ down pass to Taylor Brynaert (T5). The connection capped off an impressive 59-yard drive. The Dutchmen could not have asked for a better beginning to the game. Now, the true testwas ifthe defense could respond and put a hold on Olivet. Midway through the first quarter, the Comets finally an­ swered with a one-yard rush­

ing touchdown. Unfortunately, on the ensuing possession, the Dutchmen were stifled as Kish’s pass landed in the hands of an Olivet defender deep in Hope territory. In desperate need of a defensive stop, Hope's defense came through. Brett Stewart (T5) came up with an inter­ ception at Hope’s 27-yard line, which swung the momentum until the quarter came to a close. The Comets began the sec­ ond quarter and wasted no time in their scoring efforts. O n the second play, they scored with a nine-yard pass in the midst of Dutchmen miscommunication. As a result, Olivet led Hope 137. Later in the quarter, Oliv­ et connected for yet another touchdown. This time, lead­ ing the Dutchmen 19-7 after a missed two-point conversion at­ tempt. Luckily, with 39 seconds remaining in the half, Hope got out of their offensive slump as Kish threw to Matt Kroll (’16) for an 11-yard score. Coming out with vengeance, Ethan Zimmerman (’16) cata­ lyzed the Dutchmen to begin the second half. Zimmerman recov­ ered a fumble on the kickoff to Olivet, that put Hope in tremen­ dous field position. However, Hope was unable to capitalize and ended their drive in four short plays. O n the other hand, Olivet looked like a well-oiled machine

and pounded the ball home for a rushing touchdown with 9:19 left in the third quarter. At this point, like many of the others thus far, Hope needed another answer before they let the game get out of hand. Reggie Duncan (’15) ran for a one-yard score. Thus far, this was a contest that constantly went back and forth. There was no middle ground in sight. The winner of the game would surely score, have a poignant defensive stop, then come back and put the game away with another score. Just after the seven minute mark, Lucas intercepted a C o m ­ et pass, showing the strength of the Hope secondary defense on the day. Itwas not until four sec­ onds remaining in the quarter that Olivet was able to tack on a field goal and take a 28-20 lead. At 12:12 in the fourth quar­ ter, Kish completed a 16-yard pass to Brynaert, ending a 76yard drive. In desperate need of the two-point conversion, Kish threw a floater to Kroll that knotted the two teams up at 28-28. When Olivet got the ball back, the veteran linebacker Cody Lindemulder (’15) inter­ cepted a Comet pass. As time ran down later in the quarter, Olivet was able to score at the 4:11 mark to go ahead 3528. Fortunately, the Dutchmen did not take this as a negative moment, but as offensive moti­ vation. Kish threw yet another touchdown pass, this time to another target, Jake Helm (’16). The game was all knotted up at 35. The tension in the stadium was heavy as the crowd waited anxiously to see the direction the final minutes would take. On the final play of the game, experience trumped all. Linde­ mulder played over the center of the field and waited patiently to intercept Olivet’s final attempt to score in regulation. The huge feat sent the contest into over­ time, and the Dutchmen faithful would see an extended amount of football. Hope won the overtime coin

toss and elected to have the ball first. It only took two plays for the Dutchmen to march 25 yards and for Kish to throw a touchdown to Brynaert. With the biggest defensive stand ahead of them, Hope knew that true leaders needed to step up. Olivet's quarterback, Brandon

Black, threw a pass to the end zone on second down, and itwas snagged by Kirby Crook (’15) to end the game. The Dutchmen were victorious 42-35. “Our defense played amazing and it was so great to see them help the win with five intercep­ tions,” Larson said.
