December 8, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Indoor track and field head coach Eric Mobley quelled any doubts about his ability to continue the historic success of the College’s track program in his head-coaching debut this weekend.

The Lions walked away from their first meet of the year, Princeton’s New Year’s Invitational, with three new school records and five NCAA Division III provisional times. […]

Editorial: And now it’s time to move on

Well, I’ve reached the first of many lasts to come throughout the course of this year. After two semesters at the helm of The Signal’s sports section, I am laying down my red editing pen in favor of my bat and glove this spring.

Over the past year, the vast majority of my waking hours have been spent in The Signal office and on the College’s softball field. […]

Former LaSalle standout eager to continue indoor and outdoor track success

December 1, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

The minute Eric Mobley accepted the head coaching position of the men’s and women’s track and field programs, he also accepted the burdens of reputation, tradition and past successes that come with the College’s track and field teams.

Seven straight women’s indoor track New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Championships, 21 women’s outdoor Championships in 22 chances, and seven straight men’s outdoor Championships – walking into these expectations could make even the most experienced coach get pre-race jitters. […]

Despite wrestling without four key starters, the Lions had senior co-captain Nick Vinciguerra take first and five others place in the Central Jersey Open hosted by the College on Sunday.

After being the only Lion to win his weight class at the Ithaca College Invitational last week, sixth-ranked Vinciguerra once again led the Lions with a first-place finish at 197 pounds in the senior division. […]

Yankee fan: Red Sox deserve place in history

November 4, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Watching Boston’s Keith Foulke underhand the final out of the World Series to first base, I could only think one tortured thought …

Damn. Now we can’t chant “1918” anymore.

I hate to admit it, but the bitter Yankee fan in me prevailed over the baseball enthusiast in one of the most historic seasons baseball has seen in a while. […]

Rowan rivalry has short but intense history

October 6, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Boo Rowan! Everyone has screamed it during at least one game between Rowan University and the College and some have even emblazoned the backs of their T-shirts with the catch phrase. The College’s athletic rivalry with Rowan University may be one of the strongest and most widespread on campus. […]

Century-old rivalry more heated than ever

September 29, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Cleared benches and head-hunting in a Yankees/Red Sox game is not even news anymore.

As Sunday’s game proved, violence between the two teams is not only not surprising, but expected.

The 11-4 blowout gave the Red Sox the advantage in the overall season series, winning 10 of 18 games against New York. […]

iPods provide music on the go

September 15, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Eight-tracks, the mini-disc, beepers as the precursor to cell phones, the iPod. Only time will tell if the booming iPod industry is just one of those quick to grow, quick to fade fads, or if it really has revolutionized the world of portable music.

Right now, we may have reached the peak of the iPod frenzy, and society has become, well, obsessed. […]

New softball club wins first game

April 7, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

A 12-10 win in the first game of the season is an impressive accomplishment for any team. For a team in its very first year of existence, it becomes even more impressive.

The College’s club softball team, in its first season ever, defeated Rutgers University-New Brunswick. […]

From soccer to All-American lacrosse

March 31, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Four years ago, as an incoming soccer recruit, most people would not have expected senior midfielder Katie Wagenblast’s athletic success to involve a lacrosse stick.

Last year’s Division III Player of the Year and this year’s pick for the Preseason Player of the Year by Lacrosse Magazine, Wagenblast was originally recruited as a soccer player but decided to give up soccer and focus on lacrosse in her junior year. […]

The most Super of all Bowls

February 4, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

For once, the experts were right. The top National Football League (NFL) analysts predicted that Superbowl XXXVIII would be a close game, and that’s exactly what it was.

The New England Patriots’ 32-29 victory over the Carolina Panthers was a textbook example of what was supposed to happen this superbowl. […]
