    Swimmers Return from St. Thomas

    The Christmas break was anything but relaxing for the Swim and Dive Team as the Friars took their annual training trip to St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. The team swam hard in the tropical setting, keeping their focus on the Big East Championship.

    Friar History in the Library. The good folks over at the library have set up a wonderful display case featuring lots of Friar memorabilia in honor of the athletics Hall of Fame. The exhibit features some great old (and rare) pictures of various athletic personell and players dating back to the early years of the College, along with Hall of Fame programs and other pieces of general interest. Be sure to spend a few minutes on the way into Phillips perusing the display.

    McCarthy and Greany Pace PC in Exhibition Weekend

    The Women’s Indoor Track Team made the short journey southward to URI for their first indoor track meet of the new semester. The meet was a non-scoring meet, and will not affect the Friars’ record. But that does not make this meet worthless, as the Friars were able to get a barometer of what their competition will look like in the spring, with Big East foe UConn, and in-state rivals Bryant, Brown, and URI in attendance.

    The Sports Boss

    The Friars were definitely a surprise to many as they finished their non-conference schedule at 11-2. This was the best start for a Friars team since the 1988-89 squad began 13-0 under then-head coach Rick Barnes. (Yes, the Rick Barnes who now coaches at Texas, and yes, the same coach who would have had Tim Duncan in a Friars uniform had he remained our coach beyond the 1994 season). Though there was a nice reaction from the Friar fans, they knew that the real season was about to begin. Many had argued that the Friars played a string of cupcake teams and lost to an inferior Atlantic-10 La Salle squad down in Cancun, and lost the most important game of the non-conference schedule at Boston College.

    PC in Third Place After Two Wins

    Their four-week respite within tasting distance and their floundering adversaries from Connecticut trailing, 2-0, the Women’s Hockey Team made a point of inhaling every milliliter of oomph before Sunday’s third period.

    Friars Gear Up for Big East Play at Brown Bear Classic

    Head Coach Phil Seymore did not have to worry about preaching defense to his squad at halftime of the Friars’ first game at the Brown Bear Classic. By intermission, the Friars held a 29-10 lead against the host Brown Bears.
