    Providence Splits Against Notre Dame, DePaul

    For most college students, a home cooked meal is something that must not be taken for granted. When presented with the opportunity to have a meal cooked by Mom or Dad, everyone in the college crowd will take advantage. Eating out or on the road is great at times, but nothing beats a home cooked meal. The Women’s Soccer Team has done some great home cooking this sason, considering that the Friars have earned four wins and a tie at home this season. Not only have they been winning games, but also they have been doing so in commanding fashion, as they were outscoring opponents 21-14 coming into the weekend.

    Black Pack Stunned

    On Sun. Oct. 17, in Newport, R.I., PC “Black Pack” Rugby took on Salve Regina, but unfortunately the Pack was not able to maintain their untarnished record as they fell 31-20 in a very exciting contest. The boys representing Salve Regina were very physical and hard-nosed. They weren’t the prettiest or smartest bunch of guys, but they were somehow able to stun the Pack in a game in which the lead changed several times. Salve Regina had good forwards and a solid back line, which prevented the high-scoring Pack from surpassing 20 points. An early try got the Pack down, as they missed the ball on the back field, and they were unable to recover from the early deficit.

    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.
