February 7, 2020

 As a first-year, Christian Fioretti, now a fourth-year guard on the men’s basketball team, started in only three of 25 games.

November 22, 2019

 College first-year Lilly Crook walked into Perlick Commons on Tuesday morning wearing a long, flowing yellow dress with a floral pattern on it. She laughed and said, “Marija will probably be late.” A couple minutes later, she laughed again. College fourth-year Marija, her older sister and cross country teammate, entered the room wearing a long and flowy red dress with a floral pattern on it.  “We don’t usually do this,” Lilly said. “Everyone always says we look so alike, but...

Grace Burns, Varsity Soccer and Basketball Player

November 22, 2019
