  • Cuts, falls, errant throws & superstition aside, Lady Rams softball team off to promising start

    It is always the unkindest cut of all. It is the time when coaches make the cuts that trim the varsity down to manageable size.

  • P.C. lacrosse program set for launch with assist from Huskers & US LAX

    It was that old Rough Rider of days gone by, former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, who was fond of quoting an old West African proverb: "Speak softly, and carry a big stick; you will go far" when it came to describing his foreign policy style, one that included what he called "the exercise of intelligent forethought and decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis."
