How is the season going so far? What is your record? Ilyssa Meyer: Right now our record is 1–8, but that doesn’t reflect the hard work and dedication that we have been putting into the season so far. Also, the scoreboard has not been reflecting the heart on the field, which is really important...

The Student Athletic Advisory Committee at Oberlin College goes largely unnoticed, but that doesn’t meant they are irrelevant.

A lot of people think of cross country as an individual sport. How much of your performance is contingent on personal motivation versus being part of the team? Caroline Martin: I think it’s a mixture of both. For me it’s really clear because in high school, I was the only girl on the team. I d...

Football requires more commitment than most varsity sports. What is your least favorite off-season training? Dan Weintraub: To start out, the out-of-season 7 a.m. running on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s just a quick hour-long running workout, but it is pretty rough. Clay Eaton: It’s just the ...
