February 13, 2018 Michael Battista 0

Coming into this season, the College’s club ice hockey team had the biggest target on its back in the team’s 40-year history.

The team also made its first trip to the American Collegiate Hockey Association regional playoffs.  

Now, the team is skating back into the playoffs, which will be played on home ice because of last season’s conference title. As the fourth seed, the Lions are preparing to play fifth seeded West Chester University on Friday, Feb. 16 at Loucks Ice Center at the Lawrenceville School. […]

Neither Super Bowl team worth celebrating

February 6, 2018 Michael Battista 1

Well Philadelphia, you did it. Backup quarterback Nick Foles and the underdogs finally have a ring to call their own. It doesn’t matter that Eagles fans have pretty much destroyed the city and made their cars thoroughly “lit.” They can finally join everyone else in the National Football Conference East as Super Bowl champions. I’m glad some people are happy.

The past two weeks have been awful as a New York Giants fan. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. There was no right answer when I was asked who I wanted to win Super Bowl LII. Yet here at the College, I’ve seen more green than ever, and I’m fairly sure some of the fans who supported the city of brotherly love are defectors of the Big Apple.
