November 17, 2017

In their first game since dropping a nail-biter to the DePauw University Tigers in last year’s North Coast Athletic Conference semi-finals 58–54, the Yeowomen lost their season opener to the University of Mount Union Purple Raiders 65–44 on Wednesday.

There are some moments in sports history that make us take a step back and appreciate why athletes play the games they play. Last Sunday was one of those moments, when 19-year-old Lauren Hill of Mount St. Joseph University took the court in the NCAA Division III women’s basketball season opener. Last year, Hill was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. This September, her doctor informed her that she had only a few months to live. Since then, her dream has been to play in just one college basketball game. However, given her illness, Hill has been sidelined for most of the preseason, forced to sit on the bench wearing headphones and sunglasses due to severe headaches caused by the tumor. But in a heartwarming turn of events, ...

After a strenuous first half, the women’s basketball team achieved a satisfying 58–45 victory against Hiram College on Saturday afternoon. “Both teams started out slow,” said sophomore Katie Lucaites, “But by the second half we were definitely capitalizing on Hiram’s sluggishness.” The Yeowomen were trailing by one point at halftime, the score left at 24–23 in Hiram’s favor.
