    If you heard the sound of something breaking in Taylor Natatorium last Friday, you should not have been alarmed. You see, Eric Burtchell ’13 of the Swim Team was responsible for breaking the school record in the 1500-meter freestyle with a time of 17:23:36. The freestyler broke Tim Reilly’s ’10 record, which was set just last season. The rewriting of the record books which Burtchell and Reilly have undertaken mark improvements upon a record that had not been touched in 10 years. Burtchell, in just his second year at Providence, hopes that he has started a trend which will define this Friar team that is loaded with young talent.

    The Sports Boss

    Did Keno Davis take a public speaking course over the last year? (Could that explain the defense?) At the 2009 Late Night Madness, Davis spoke for five seconds, literally. He did not wait for the crowd to silence. He did not wait to make a big statement that would send a chill down the Friar Fans’ spines. He just took the microphone, said thanks for coming, and then walked off the court.
