Bultman announces sexuality task force Task Force will help deal with issues of sexuality on campus Courtney Klein C A M P U S BEAT E W T O R

Recently in his Presidential Update, Jim Bultman. Hope College President announced that he has organized a Task Force to help Hope's community deal with issues of sexuality. " A s you know, our society, churches, and college c a m p u s e s struggle with issues of sexuality. Hope College is no exception. In light of related campus events of the last several years, I have formed a task force of college personnel representing the academic, student development, chaplain, and counseling areas of the college," Bultman said in his

update. Bultman was out of town and unavailable for comment. Bultman has asked that the Task Force, headed by P r o f e s s o r of C o m m u n i c a t i o n s James Herrick, to report their findings to him by March 1,2002. "The idea of the Task Force originally surfaced during the spring semester of 2001. As for the time between now and March when we make our report, I don't see it as a delay. Five months is not a lot of time when you have such ar of large task before you. We want to be thorough and thoughtful in approaching our charge," Herrick said. Herrick believes that he was asked to serve on thecommittee based on two factors: his experience leading other groups on and off campus, and his interest in the issues the task force would be addressing.

Greeks organize risk management policy Risk policy requires Greeks to take responsiblity for their o w n actions J a m e s Pierce C A M P U S BEAT EDITOR

T h e Greek system at H o p e is getting a facelift. Last week the Panhellenic Board and Interfraternity Council resolved to officially recognize the risk management policy that was written two years ago, which entails a shift in the accountability of Hope's frater-

nities and sororities from the administration to the Greek organizations themselves. Under this new system, each fraternity and sorority will establish a standards board to handle minor internal problems that students may have within their sororities or fraternities. T h e new changes are about"... Upholding the values that our groups were founded on," said Jani Fisher ( ' 0 2 ) , Panhellenic Board President and member of the Sibylline sorority.

The 67th Annual Nykerk Cup Competition ended in victory for the Class of 2 0 0 4 on Saturday, N o v e m b e r 3, at the Holland Civic Center. Both teams presented a song, oration and play for a panel of nine judges. The competition culminated a month of hard work for both even and odd years. This year more than 325 freshman and sophomores took part in the tradition. S e n i o r publicity chair for the 2001 Nykerk Executive Committee Marta Liang ( ' 0 2 ) was very pleased with the evening. "The Nykerk spirit and excitement are in the air," Liang ('02) said. 2 0 0 5 S o n g , which consisted of 113 freshman girls, presented the song "My G u y " . " T h e Genuine Treatment" was the title of freshman Gretchen Schmidt's 2005 O r a t i o n . And the 2 0 0 5 Play, " T h e D i s c o n b o b u l a t e d F a i r y t a l e , " was presented by a cast of fourteen freshman girls. 2004 Song, which consisted of fifty-two sophomore girls, presented "This Little Light of Mine." Orator Meredith DeAvila ('04) delivered "With a Bold Step," and the 2004 Play cast of fifteen presented "There^s No Place Like Hope." T h e Class of 2004 got the taste of victory that they were not able to attain last year, when odd year was victorious. 2004 Play Moraler Seth Devries is savoring his first Nykerk victory.

"I feel pretty good. This is the second year I've done Nykerk and winning this year was incredible. It was like redeeming ourselves," DeVries ('04) said. Even year orator Meredith De Avila ('04) was also feeling fantastic. "I got up on stage, and I nailed every motion and every word. It was there, and I was at ease. It was a lot of work but it was totally worth it," De Avila ('04) said. 2004 Song girl Tiffany Zylstra echocd De Avila's and Devries' excitement. "Oh my gosh. It is incredible. I am so completely astounded and so relieved," Zylstra said. Excitement was not just reserved for the winners of the competition though. For some 2005 Nykerk participants, losing does not matter. 2005 Song girl Melissa G i f f o r d ' s was still e c s t a t i c about the night's performances. "I feel good. It was still fun to lose, and I ' m definitely going to do it again next year," Gifford ( ' 0 5 said. The 2001 Nykerk program notes that, "Nykerk is not inherently about competition, but about friendships and showcasing talents." This was made apparent by both the '04 and '05 teams as they "met in the middle" after the winner was announced and then partied together afterwards at the Kletz. For Liang, who has taken part in the tradition for four years, Nykerk has been a big part of her Hope College experience. "All four years have been fabulous. It gets better and better every year," Liang said.

Sports medicine lecture series offers healthier lifestyle to Hope students This week's lecture on November 8th focuses on vegetarianism and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle Becca Haynes S T A F F ^EPOFLFER

T h i s w e e k ' s a t t e n d a n c e of the Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports Medicine will provide information regarding vegetarianism and the athlete, in conjunction with healthier eating habits. On Thursday. N o v e m b e r 8, the Lecture Series will present Debra Vinci, who is assistant professor in the department of health, leisure, and exercise science at Appalachian Sta' - University in Boone, N.C. Vinci also

holds a doctorate in health education from Loma Linda University. Vinci has had a number of experiences in health education and nutrition in the Pacific Northwest. She has published or made more than forty presentations on subjects related to athletic nutrition. Her lecture titled, "The Vegetarian Athlete," is about the various types of vegetarianism and the importance of planning to insure a balanced vegetarian diet. "We chose this topic because it is one that is current. More athletes are choosing to lead a vegetarian lifestyle, but it is one that presents challenges at a physical high performance level, series coordinator Richard Ray said. Vinci will examine the importance of following a diet that is high in carbohydrates, provides adequate protein to meet the in-

creased needs of athletes and is low in fat. The Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports Medicine, now in its fifth year, is aimed towards students, educators, clinicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and physicians, features those in the professions of nursing, athletic training, and physical therapy. "We wanted to make sure our staff was exposed to the best minds in the various disciplines that compromise Sports Medicine. We also thought [the series] would allow us to provide access to an excellent source of continuing education in the West Michigan area," Ray said. Ray is in charge of deciding on speakers and topics. He receives input from co-sponsors Holland C o m m u n i t y Hospital, H o p e College, and Grand Rapids Sports Center. "I try to ask myself, what are the big questions in sports medicine? What [topics] are

being talked about and written about?" Ray said. The lectures usually draw fifty to two hundred attendees. "We try to address the broadest segment of people interested in sports medicine, examining lopics in in psychology, nutrition, asthma; there's a broad range of topics. This lecture may be interesting to athletes, vegetarian students, pre-med students, and other people from the Holland community," Ray said. "I hope that as many [individuals] as possible will take advantage of this opportunity. One of the benefits of attending Hope College is the variety of enrichment activities that are available. I'm very grateful to the professors who have advertised." ' T h e Vegetarian Athlete" will be presented in the Maas Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. The public is invited and admission is free.

Grant helps students enhance Literacy skills An effort to help students at Hope College learn to use information technology more effectively has received support from the S B C Ameritech Partnership Awards for Independent Colleges program. Hope is one of five Michigan colleges or universities to receive one of the $10,000 awards for 2001. The college's project will link members of ihe English and library faculty in developip^ ways to help students in the college's first- year composition courses learn how to find and use appropriate information technology in research and writing. Hope schedules about 37 sections of its first-year composition course, English 113, each year. About 20 members of the English faculty and the college's f i v e teaching librarians work with the course, which enrolls nearly

all of Hope's 700-plus freshman. The course includes instruction in using the resources available through the college's Van Wylen Library. Through the grant, members of the English and library faculties involved in English 113 will meet during the spring and summer to consider how to efficiently incorporate information technology- such as electronic databases, web-based f i n d i n g aids, e l e c t r o n i c j o u r n a l s and e l e c t r o n i c books- in the college's information literacy program. Faculty will be collaborating and seeking ways to help students find and use information technology in research and writing. The result of their efforts will go into effect beginning with the fall 2002 semester.

International Food Fair on Saturday, Nov 10 The annual International Food Fair at Hope College will take place on Saturday. November 10, beginning at 6:30 p.m. In the Mass Center Auditorium. Tickets for the dishes being served will be available at the door. Tic kets are $0.50 each, with most dishes costing three to four tickets. A book of recipes v Jl also be available for $3. The international students at Hope have sponsored the event every year for more than

25 years. The International Food Fair is a celebration of the many cuisines and cultures represented at Hope. Nations represented will include Argentina, England, France, India, Japan, Romania, Sri Lanka, and Tajikistan. In addition to the cuisine, the food fair will feature educational displays concerning the cultures participating; some of the students will wear traditional attire. The event will continue until 8 p.m.

This Wednesday, November 7, representatives from Hope College and local business leaders will visit over 250 area businesses. Their goal is to seek contributions to the Hope Fund for the Holland/Zeeland Community Campaign. Susan Feldkamp, Hope Fund Manager said that the Hope Fund, formerly known as the Hope Annual Fund, has been in existence for almost as long as the college itself. The Community Campaign began roughly twenty-five years ago as a way to engage community leaders with Hope faculty and staff and to focus and improve connectedness between the community and the college. Hope Fund staff involves alumni with various businesses and those who are donors to the college. These donors, if located close enough to the college or Holland, get personal visits during the Community Campaign on Wednesday. In addition to personal visits, hundreds more businesses and friends of Hope College will receive letters requesting a contribution. Feldkamp estimates the total number of people contacted is eight hundred.

"It gives c o m m u n i t y business leaders a feeling of Ownership' in Hope," she says. "It helps build and maintain relationships." Hope Fund chairman Ted Etheridge, C E O of Steketee-Van Huis, Inc, told reporters for K n o w H o p e he thinks that Hope has, over the years, "embraced and supported the business community as well as or better than any of the other colleges in the area." This year, the Holland/Zeeland C o m m u nity Campaign is expected to raise close to $260,000 for the Hope Fund. According to the Hope Advancement Staff web page, the Hope Fund seeks "ongoing, .unrestricted financial support from alumni, corporations, churches, parents and friends for operations and programs at the college." In this case, " u n r e s t r i c t e d " m e a n s that those who contribute make general endorsement and no restriction as to what their money goes to support. T h e Hope Fund supports student financial aid. Bill Anderson, Senior Vice President for Finance and Development estimated that the Hope Fund supplies approximately twenty percent of the $16.000.000in financial aid awarded to Hope students annually. This year, the Hope Fund is expected to raise $3,000,000 for the college.

I also w a n t e d t h e o p p o r t u n i t y to work with the other people the President w a s asking to serve o n the Task Force," Herrick said. T h e committee will be composed of students, a board member, administrators, faculty, and Tim Brown, dean of the Chapel. President Bultman further clarified the role of the Task F o r c e in his Presidential Update. "The mandate of the task force will be to review the college attempts at educating about h u m a n sexuality including, but not limited to, homosexuality, research the educational activities of other Christian liberal arts colleges, evaluate the treatment of h o m o s e x u a l students at H o p e

College, explore h o w the college can best exhibit care and c o m p a s sion for those with a homosexual orientation, and examine what periodic educational experiences would be beneficial f o r the c a m p u s c o m m u n i t y , including especially those entering the helping professions," Bultman said. Other colleges will be looked to by the President and the c o m m i t tee in providing an example on h o w to deal with issues of sexuality on campus. We certainly will look at h o w other c a m p u s e s h a v e addressed issues related to homosexuality, and larger issues of sexuality generally.

48th annual All College Sing this weekend Ashley North STAFF REPORTER

The All College Sing is not your typical talent show. It's a vocal debate with fortyseven years behind it, and this year it will take place on Saturday, November 10 at 8 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theater. In 1940, the very first official All College Sing was held in the Pine Grove as a competition between sororities. Due to its immense popularity, it was expanded to include all of the Greek organizations, fraternities and sororities alike. Because of World War II, the All College Sing was canceled from 1943 to 1946. Over the next three decades it grew into an event so looked forward to, that it rivaled even the favorite traditions of the Pull and Nykerk. In 1976, the Social Activities Committee, (SAC), invited all Hope students to participate in the once Greek tradition. T h e tradition continued throughout the eighties and early nineties. In 1998, the All College Sing was forced to be canceled because of the lack of a proper venue, but the event returned in 1999. This year's All College Sing will feature Hope students with vocal and instrumental talents, who have auditioned for a spot in the

show. The event is similar to the Talent Jam held in the spring, with the exception that the focus of the All College Sing is on singing. The 2001 All College Sing lineup consists of J a s o n M o n t g o m e r y ( 4 0 3 ) . A b b i e Matthews ( 4 05), Two Girls and a Cello, Not So Scott, Sarah Proulx (*02), Chris Bryan ( 4 04), Brad Jerdon ( 4 02), Megan Helm ( 4 02), Lyle!, and Lisa Bauer ( 4 05). Performances will be judged upon the four main categories of quality of talent, expression and variation, creativity, and overall presentation. Each act will be competing for a chance to lake home a cash prize which will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. The j u d g e s include H o p e College professors, some resident directors, and other community members. 44 There is a great lineup of student talent, so it should be a fun and interesting time," said Dan Morrison ( 4 04), S A C member and All College Sing special events chairperson. Participant Sarah Proulx ( 4 02) will be performing a piece she wrote on her own while playing the piano. Like Sarah, a majority of the songs being performed are original compositions written by the participants. "Attending the All College Sing is a great

Hope students publish poems in literary journal Beth L o m a s n e y When Poetry Professor Jack Ridl sent word of a call for submissions to his advanced poetry students, two students rushed to meet a quick deadline with a prepared pen. The Beloit Poetry Journal asked for work from poets ages twentyfive and under for their Spring 2001 issue. Katie Bode-Lang ( 4 02) and Julie Green ( 4 02) submitted without a backwards glance, and received thick envelopes in the mail one month later. B o d e - L a n g , a recipient of the Distinguished Artist's Award for creative writing upon her entrance to Hope, has been writing poetry for as long as she can remember, yet college has been 44a wonderful chance to develop." 4i I worked really hard on my accepted poem in Poetry 455 last semester. T h e poem is o n e of m y longest, and it actually has a lot to do with the astronomy work I ' v e been doing," Bode-Lang said. 44It ties in with a Night Sky class I'd

taken with Professor Gonthier." Bode-Lang had never submitted to a magazine before, and she is "embarrassed to admit" her method of submission. 44 I got the e-mail about the call for submissions so late, I ended up Priority Mailing," Bode-Lang said. 44 1 thought it was the stupidest thing I ' d ever done." Bode-Lang may be spending $ 3 a poetry submission in the future, but her method has sure worked. S h e is thrilled to have her work appear in such a literary source. 44 I feel really honored, especially since there are so many good writers here under twenty-five," BodeLang said. "Everyone has been so excited for me. It is nice to have Hope's support." Green, who has previously had a c o l u m n p u b l i s h e d in " W o m a n ' s L i f e " magazine, has only been writing poetry for just over a year. She submitted to the journal upon Ridl's suggestion with a four-day deadline.' "I s t a y e d up all n i g h t in t h e

Green, who is currently applying to MFA programs in poetry, is inf l u e n c e d by poets such as G a r y Soto, Mark Strand, and Mary Oliver, for their ability to "intrigue readers without explanation."

Distributing Ignorance

This Monday, I walked into the Anchor office and a friend of mine handed me a small rectangular comic book he found on the ATM in DeWitt. On the cover of this book was the title "Holy Joe" and in the comer were the initials J.T.C.: Jack T. Chick. I couldn't help but moan. I first encountered these tracts back in high school. I remember looking at one titled "Are Roman Catholics Christian?" with one of my teachers, who just happened to be Catholic. The book had a long list of reasons why Catholics were not Christian. The list accused Catholics of worshiping Mary, repeating the sacrifice of Christ, believing in transubstantiation- all sins against the Bible, according to Chick. The tract went on to say Jesus calls the Catholic Church . the great whore. If I remember correctly, I almost became physically sick. I decided to do some investigation into the Jack T. Chick tracts. I found out that Jack T. Chick tracts were little comic books designed to convert people to born-again Christianity. People are told to hand out the tracts or leave

them in common places where others will pick them up. Some examples of tracts are " T h e Crisis, a Jehovah's Witness accepts Christ just in time to save his girl's life", "Party Girl, a young woman's brush with death reveals Satan's plot for her destruction," and " D o o m Town, story of Sodom. Delivers a compassionate plea to repent of homosexuality." To make a long story short I was disgusted after reading the Catholic tract, but I was absolutely appalled when I read more of the tracts. They are a collection of stories not meant to tell people what is great about being a Christian, but rather the supposed horrible consequences for people who aren't; even good people. From what I have seen, about half the pamphlets are designed to convert practicing Christians to the right form Christianity rather than introducing non-Christians to the faith. Hope College is a community of learning and exploring. Through education we are supposed to learn how to relate better with our fellow human beings, but these pamphlets breed nothing but intolerance and hatred. I don't know if I can think of anything farther from the message of Jesus than these two

ideas. Too often today I have seen Christians obsessed with right belief at any cost and forgetting that God also calls for right action and right love. Anybody who wants to can distribute these tracts; they have freedom of speech. Nobody understands this and wants it more than members of a newspaper staff. We also understand, however, that there is a great responsibility that comes along with freedom of speech. We should be sure that what we are saying is meaningful and intelligent, that a lot of thought has gone into it and that we are ready to accept criticism of those words. So in that spirit I am going to exercise my freedom of speech. People claim that these pamphlets have converted many people. For my part however, when I read these pamphlets I am ashamed to call myself a Christian. There is too much mystery and beauty in life to be sure enough of the answers that we are willing to tell other people that they are wrong. Don't take most of what you believe too seriously, because with our limited knowledge and understanding, it's most likely wrong.

Nationwide campus security report for the year 2000 shows drop in crime at Hope Erica Heeg INFOCUS EDITOR

A nationwide slalislical report of criminal offenses for colleges and universities during the year 2000 was released several weeks ago. The report is provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education and required from colleges and universities by the Department of Education. In the report Hope College showed a decrease in numbers from previous years. In the y e a r 2 0 0 0 , there w e r e twenty one-campus arrests at Hope. Fifteen of them were for liquor law violations, four for drug law violations, and one for an illegal weapon possession. The same number of disciplinary actions and judicial referrals were reported. The number of arrests was down from twentyseven in 1999 and twenty-nine in 1998. There were fifteen criminal o f f e n s e s r e p o r t e d o n - c a m p u s in 2000, twelve for burglary and three for arson. This number is also down f r o m thirtyone criminal o f f e n s e s in 1999.

Greg Maybury, director of operations and technology, is pleased with the safely of Hope's campus. "There have been no major crimes; w e have been fortunate," Maybury said. "We are fairly iso-

lated here in West Michigan." But Hope is not free of crime. " A l t h o u g h the m a n y attractive b u i l d i n g s and w e l l - m a i n t a i n e d grounds lend a relaxed and somewhat carefree atmosphere to our college community, we do, however, experience some of the same crime problems which exist in any urban environment. In fact, by our very nature, we tend to be an inviting target for crime," a brochure published by Public Saftey said. Stealing is one of the problems that Public Safety must deal with often. " T h e biggest crime on campus would be larceny. Thefts of bikes, books, and backpacks," Maybury said. T h e c r i m e s that d o o c c u r on c a m p u s are posted each day on K n o w h o p e , under t h e " S t u d e n t Right-to-Know" and Campus Security Act of 1990.

Watch this space Last year, Student Congress used $ 5 0 0 of the student activity fee to buy this scrolling marquee sign in the lobby of the DeWitt Center. Although active last year, the sign has yet to display anything this year. As a service to you, the Anchor will keep track of how many w e e k s It has been blank in the 2001 fall semester.

What's best for us In his Presidential Update announcing the formation of the Task Force on Sexuality, President Bultman wrote that the mandate of the Task Force is to address the issue of sexuality "in the context of biblical authority, the Reformed Church in America and Hope College positions, constituency and community expectations, and educational research literature." As evidenced by the events of the past few years, sexuality is a huge issue for the students of Hope College. However, Bultman does not seem interested in asking us our opinion. We the students, the most important population of the college, don't even make the list. Does he think we don't care? I care about the issue of sexuality, but I don't expect to be asked for my opinion. T h e y ' v e never asked me about anything in the past. Unfortunately unlike me, most students don't have the opportunity to share their opinions with the campus every week, but that doesn't mean they don't care. I don't expect the Task Force to ask for their opinion either. But, they will consult the Bible, the RCA and the rich while conservative men who pay for 70 percent of our education (what Bultman means by "constituency expectations.") In my experience, this administration has demonstrated over and over agiain that they care more about that money than the happiness of the student body, so you can forgive me if I don't expect much from this Task Force. T h e people who run this college are afraid of us. They think that, if left to our own devices, w e would make bad decisions. They think they know what's best for us. At least, that what's apparent to me from Bultman's statements. The constituency may not want a Gay Straight Alliance at Hope College, but I'd be willing to bet that most students would support such a group. I, for one, would take a risk on losing some money to do the right thing. We are Hope College, they are not. They do not know what's best for us, and all you have to do is read through the past four years of the Anchor to find proof of that.

Volleyball season ends in loss to Calvin John Rodstrom SENIOR STAFF REPORTER

All good things musl come lo an end, and such was the case for the Hope College w o m e n ' s volleyball team on Saturday nighl as they Tell to archrival Calvin College, 30-21, 3 0 - 2 6 / 3 0 - 2 2 . T h e K n i g h t s will move on to the N C A A tournament and the Flying Dutch finish the season with a 2 0 - 1 4 record and an M1AA championship. T h e Flying Dutch reached the MIAA tournament finals by sweeping Kalamazoo College on Friday, 30-25, 30-20, 30-22. "I was really happy with the way we played on Friday. We came out s t r o n g and w e r e c o n f i d e n t and played one of our best matches that w e ' v e had all s e a s o n , " s a i d Maureen Dunn, Mope head coach. " I ' m still unsure as lo why we came out so flat on Saturday. 1 think Calvin played very well, but we made so many errors that we never really got into our own rhythm." The Calvin game marked the first lime the Flying Dutch had lost at home all season, coming into the match with a 9-0 home record. "It was a little different playing a g a i n s t C a l v i n h a v i n g a lot of Calvin fans there. You're not used lo have cheering when you make mistakes in your own gym," Dunn said. Martha Luidens ('03) led the Flying Dutch on Saturday with 14 kills, while Laura Hahnfeld ( ' 0 3 ) and Kara VanAssen ('03) added 8 kills a piece. McKennaTroyan ('04) also added 31 assists.

Despite the disappointment on Saturday, the Flying Dutch still had a very successful season, overcoming setbacks* and winning 20 games for the fourth time in five years under Coach Dunn. It was an interesting year for Hope, having lo deal with Dunn being on and off for four weeks in the middle of the season while on maternity leave. "I certainly appreciate the help t h a t my a s s i s t a n t c o a c h , Jill s VanderSloep, gave as far as sort of stepping into my role when I wasn't there," Dunn said. "I think she did a fantastic job, but having two head coaches that have pretty different coaching styles around is difficult for the players." After their co-championship season, the Flying Dutch are looking to do well in the MIAA again next year. Hope will only be graduating two players from this years squad. Right side hitter Molly H e n s o n ( ' 0 2 ) and m i d d l e b l o c k e r A m y B rower ( t 02). "We have a core of starters returning and we should be strong next year as well. What we'll miss is their l e a d e r s h i p . B r o w e r and Henson have been the heart of the Hope team for the past year," Dunn said. "Amy's the kind of person that leads by example and works 120 percent and demands respect by the way she carries herself. Molly came into more of a leadership role this year and was really motivational to the other players by pushing them to perform their best." Brower was voted the MIAA's

Laura Hahnfeld ('03) and Amy Brower ('02) prepare to return the serve during the MIAA tournament last weekend. Hope lost in the finals against Calvin in three sets. m o s t v a l u a b l e p l a y e r , and a l s o n a m e d to the M I A A first team. Joining her on the first team was Van Assen. On the s e c o n d team were Luidens and Hahnfeld. T h e next s t e p for t h e F l y i n g Dutch is the non-traditional spring season, a new addition to the schedule this year.

The schedule consists of three weeks of two practices a week, so six practices in all. "It isn't that much but it does give them some guidance as lo what they can do on their own as far as developing their individual skills which we haven't had in the past," Dunn said. "The more they can focus on the basics in the summer, the less

lime we have to spend on the basics next fall." Coach Dunn is keeping in mind the big picture, and hopes to carry the team's optimism into next season. " I t ' s not all a b o u t w i n s and losses, its about what the girls learn throughout the season and the relationships they make," Dunn said.

W-Basketball ready to roll Rand Arwady SPORTS EDITOR

Hope College w o m e n ' s basketball had a remarkable season to remember last year, and then a final game to forget. After breaking a Hope record of 25 wins in one season, winning the M I A A by going undefeated in the league, going 25-3 on the season, being ranked third in the country going into the N C A A tournament, being the Ome seed in the region, a first round bye and then hosting Ohio Wesleyan in the Dow Center, the teams amazing year came to an end with a 72-71 loSs in the final seconds to Ohio Wesleyan. T h e Flying Dutch will have a chance to make up for last season's early exit from the N C A A tournament when they host O h i o Wesleyan in their first game of the season on Friday November 16 in the Dow Center as part of the Hope Tipoff Tournament. t4 We want t o c o m e back and prove that we should have won that g a m e last y e a r , " s a i d A m y

When Ohio Wesleyan shows up to play the Flying Dutch they will see almost the same Hope squad from a year ago. Last year's squad only had one senior Kristin Koenigsknecht ('01), and the rest of the team (for the most part) is back. This year's team will be bidding for an unprecedented third consecutive outright MIAA championship. They will have head coach Brian Morehouse leading the way in his sixth season. Last season Morehouse was voted the Michigan collegiate women's basketball coach of the year and the Great Lakes Region Division III coach of the year. He has coached Hope to an average of 19 wins a season. Leading the way for Hope this year will be four senior veterans; guards Becky Sutton ( 4 02) and Jodi B o o m ( ' 0 2 ) , and f o r w a r d s A m y Brower ( 4 02) and Laura Poppema

( ' 0 2 ) . H o p e will also have back Amanda Kerkstra ( l 03), back from her fall semester sabbatical in Australia. She was voted the MIAA's most valuable player last season. Kerkstra was also voted to the Division III News women's basketball All-America third team. Last season Poppema joined Kerkstra on the M I A A first team and Baltmanis was named to the second team. In the DIM hoops.com preseason rankings, Hope is picked fourth. Last years runner up Messiah is this season's number one selection. Hope has some goals before going into play this season. "Our goal is lo win the MIAA again, go undefeated in league like last year, but not to underestimate anybody we play," Baltmanis said. "Everyone's biggest game is when they play us." In B a l t m a n i s ' f r e s h m e n year, Hope went 20-5 on the year but failed to win the MIAA tournament. Then the Flying Dutch were not given an at-large bid for the NCAA

Football extends winning streak Ben D e H a a n S E N I O R STAFF R E P O R T E R

As the Dutchmen took the field on Saturday against Olivet, there was emotion in the air from Parent's Day. However, the team knew they had a game to win, and quickly the focus turned to intensity. Hope jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back, as they demolished the C o m e t s 41-6. T h i s victory was Hope's seventh win in a row, and the fifth game in a row that they have led the entire game. By winning, Hope has set up an u n o f f i c i a l M1AA c h a m p i o n s h i p match at Albion next week. Albion defeated Kalamazoo last week 3028, and is now lied with Hope at 40 in the M1AA. " T h i s is c h a m p i o n s h i p w e e k right here. It's all or nothing now; this is what it's all about right now," said Phil Butler ('04), Hope quarterback. The Flying Dutchmen had plenty more to be happy about, as even m o r e r e c o r d s w e r e b r o k e n this week. Butler threw for four touchdowns, which sets his single season mark at 23 touchdowns. This surpassed former Hope quarterback G r e g H e e r e s mark of 21 t o u c h downs. Butler also completed 20 of 33 passes for 312 yards, setting his yard total for the season at 1,981 yards, also a new Hope record. Receivers Mike Gle ('02) and Brian Adloff ( ' 0 2 ) also put their n a m e into h i s t o r y . G l e c a u g h t s e v e n passes for 41 yards, and hauled in two touchdowns. This put his pass reception yardage for the season at 818 yards, a H o p e record. G l e ' s touchdowns also extended his season total to 13, and his career total to 23, both Hope College records. Adloff a l s o had an e x c e p t i o n a l game. He caught six passes for 84

yards before going out with back spasms. However, the six catches put his season mark at 57, breaking the p r e v i o u s record (which Adloff also held) of 51 from the 2000 season. Adloff also needs just three more catches to put his career total to 200. "It w a s a w h o l e t e a m e f f o r t . Coach was calling the right plays at the right time," Butler said. "The r e c o r d s are g r e a t , but t h e o n l y record that really matters so far is our league record." Hope dominated both sides of the ball o n c e again, as the o f f e n s e crushed the C o m e t ' s defense for 499 total offensive yards, and controlled the ball almost ten minutes longer than Olivet. In the first half, Hope scored on four straight drives, while only needing to punt the ball once the entire game. D e f e n s i v e l y , H o p e shut d o w n Olivet and never really let them into the game, holding them to just 152 offensive yards. Hope also picked up 3 sacks, an interception, and forced a fumble. Matt Beaver ('04) led the Dutchm e n with 13 t a c k l e s , w h i l e Pal Warren ( ' 0 2 ) added 12, and Bill Rozema ('04) tacked on 11. " E v e r y b o d y c a m e out and did their j o b today," Warren said. "We c a m e to play football today." Hope's head coach. Dean Kreps w a s h a p p y with the play of his younger players. "Our younger guys did especially well today," Kreps said. "But we're going to gel our other guys back at it for the game next week so we'll be at full strength." Hope got Ihe ball rolling in the first q u a r t e r w h e n H o p e f o r c e d Olivet to punt on three .straight downs. Only three plays later, Butler hit Joel Solomon ('03) from 48

Hope would get inside the red zone, but was forced lo settle with a 24-yard field goal from Ian Fish ('02) to make the score 10-0. T h e Comets would take the ball back, but the solid defense of the Dutchmen forced another punt. Hope drove the ball all the way to O l i v e t ' s three-yard line, but was once again forced to settle with a field goal, this t i m e a 20yarder, from Fish. T h e Comets used this opportunity to answer with a touchdown of their own, as they capped off a 73-yard drive with a 1-yard run from running back Gabe Steward. T h e PAT failed, though, and Hope held a 13-6 lead. Hope would

counter the score only six plays later, as the offense stormed into Comet territory, ending with Gle's six yard t o u c h d o w n catch f r o m Butler to officially give Butler the single season record for touchdown passes. Hope led at halftime 20-6. H o p e would c o m e out j u s t as strong in the second half. The defense held the Comets once again, and Hope would receive the ball on th e i r o w n t h r e e - y a r d line. T h e D u t c h m e n used the time wisely, and drove the ball the distance of the field in 18 plays. Butler found Scott Jeschke ('04) in the endzone from two yards out to put Hope up 27-6. After another Comet punt, Hope began another drive late in the third quarter. As time expired in the quarter, Mike Gle caught a 31 -yard pass

in the endzone from Butler to put the Dutchmen up 34-6.

Tyler ran for 30 yards on four carries in the final drive to go along with his touchdown. Hope would intercept Olivet's final drive and kneel on it to end the game at 41-6. Hope is not just playing for the M I A A title on Saturday, but for a potential playoff spot. "A lot is on the line." Kreps said. "Our players will be ready. Motivation is not a problem this week; it hasn't been all year." Kickoff at Albion is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
