September 7, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU volleyball team came out strong Wednesday night against Taylor University (7-3, 1-1) to dominate set one before dropping the next three to suffer a 3-1 loss, 18-25, 25-19, 25-19, 26-24, to the Trojans in a Crossroads League clash at Odle Arena.

“We knew we had to come out strong and establish our pace early and we did,” said Coach Shondell. “The difficult thing with volleyball is it requires you to be able to rebuild dominance every set, not just once. We struggled developing a rhythm after the end of set one.”

The Trojans outhit the Foresters by seven, 55-48, and logged a .205 hitting percentage to HU’s .123. Both teams posted eight blocks and behind the line proved similar as well with Huntington tallying four aces and eight service errors while TU finished with two aces and seven service errors.

Offensively, Shondell’s crew was paced by Tailor Schultheis and Brandy Michie with 11 kills apiece. Danielle Gurwell and Josie Beaver added nine and seven kills respectively. The senior duo also led Huntington at the net defensively with Gurwell claiming 3.5 blocks which included two solos and Beaver registering two.

Breanna Levings handed out a team-best 27 assists while Kate Cobb topped the match in digs with 25.

While it wasn’t the result he was hoping for, Shondell still had plenty of positives to say about his team’s play. “Tailor gave us all she had tonight; unfortunately, her health prevented her from being able to stay in the match.

“Brandy is a steady weapon for us. She rarely lets situations like this prevent her from being successful and tonight showed that. Danielle was good all-around tonight. She found aggressive ways to score and she was a force at the net.”

The Foresters (6-6, 1-1) wrap up the week with a pair of home league matches – hosting Saint Francis on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Spring Arbor on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.

Stratford Theatre Festival

September 6, 2017 General Comments Off on Stratford Theatre Festival Posted By: Jack Heller

I am planning a trip to the Stratford (Ontario) Theatre Festival to occur during Fall Break. We would leave at 4 p.m. on Friday, October 13th, and you would have an opportunity to see three professional plays and Saturday and Sunday, the 14th and 15th. We would be back in Huntington late in the evening of the 15th.

The cost would be $150 per person for transportation and accommodations (which includes breakfast). You would be responsible for buying your own play tickets (there are fantastic bargains for students, potentially less than $25 for some plays, all of them professional performances), and you would be responsible for other meals and other purchases. You would also need to have a current passport. This opportunity is open to anyone interested and able to attend, up to 12 people.

There are six plays on stage that weekend, two musicals, two Shakespeare plays, a theatrical adaptation, and a comedy of manners:

Guys and Dolls
HMS Pinafore

Romeo and Juliet
Twelfth Night

Treasure Island

Comedy of Manners:
The School for Scandal

If you have an interest in taking this trip over Fall Break, please let me know . . . soon.
