A Season Well Spent

I’m not sure if I’m allowed to have nostalgia at a time like this. This is the men’s ice hockey’s story, and I am a writer, the ultimate inside-outsider.

Baseball gets first win of the season after six straight losses

The baseball team’s first win of the season was a victory in every sense of the word.
