Top 10 Rejected AU Sports Slogans

(01/29/04 5:00am)

Looking around the NCAA sports world, it's clear that AU lacks something that so many successful sports programs have. A slogan. Kansas fans rally around "rock chalk Jayhawk." Penn State and Alabama students echo cries of "We are Penn State" and "Roll Tide," respectively. Army has the single-minded "Go Army, beat Navy," and Virginia Tech has the onomatopoeic "Hokie Hi Hi Hokie Hokie Hee." We haven't come up with a good one for AU yet, but here are the top 10 slogans we've thought up and discarded.

Runners claim second PL title

(11/03/03 5:00am)

Add two more Patriot League titles to AU's growing list of championships. The Men's and Women's Cross Country teams captured their second-consecutive PL championship at Lafayette, defeating Army and Navy on an abnormally hot Saturday. The Men's team defeated Navy by 24 points and Army by 79 points, with junior Pat MacAdie finishing in first place. MacAdie won the individual title 15 seconds faster than the second place runner in a time of 25:18.8, which is a personal best for MacAdie. "I was pretty surprised ... I didn't think we were going to win," MacAdie said. "But we ran as a team and it's a definite confidence builder when you're surrounded by your team members ... you push harder with them around." Senior David Seymour finished second for the Eagles and fourth overall with a time of 25:42.5. Junior Sean Duffy, sophomore Phil Gaeta and junior Danny Maurer took home the sixth through eighth spots with times of 25:43.7, 25:44.8 and 25:45.4, respectively. The Women's team secured the top three spots of the race, defeating Army by 27 points and Navy by 33 points. Sophomore Keira Carlstrom won the league individual title in a time of 20:02.8, 41 seconds faster than the rest of the field. "I felt confident going into this race because I knew we had control," Carlstrom said. "We work hard all season and we were ready to see results." Freshman Kelley Taylor and senior Jen Baclawski placed in second and third with times of 20:45.6 and 21:00.8, respectively. Junior Whitney McNees finished sixth, breaking her personal record with a time of 21:08.6. Sophomore teammate Zaia Wharton finished 18th with a time of 21:51.50. Both teams will spend the next two weeks preparing for the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional in Lock Haven, Pa. on Saturday, Nov. 15.

Ladies finish perfect in PL

(11/03/03 5:00am)

It was a perfect ending to a perfect regular season for the Field Hockey team, as they end the regular season with an undefeated record in the Patriot League and a 13-4 record overall. Senior Melissa Snyder led her team to a 3-2 victory at Bucknell Saturday, Nov. 1, collecting two goals and one assist. Snyder gave her team an early lead when she scored the first and only goal of the first half off a save from a penalty corner with 16:50 remaining. Then, five minutes into the second half Snyder struck again, putting the Eagles up with a two-goal advantage. But the Bison answered back just three minutes after Snyder's goal off a penalty corner. Shortly after, Bucknell tied the game off a breakaway shot. This did not sit well with the Lady Eagles. Freshman Camila Infante put the game-winning goal past the Bucknell 'keeper off a penalty shot with assists from Snyder and sophomore Maureen Daniel. This is Infante's sixth goal and Daniel's 10th assist of the season. Snyder leads the team with 14 goals and six assists. Senior goalkeeper Laura Miller finished the day with two saves, facing eight shots. The Eagles enter the PL Tournament as the No. 1 seed in Worcester, Mass. on Nov. 7-8.
