Alwine At UVA



This past week was rather uneventful. It was basically filled with all school and soccer, which is the way life around here normally is. It’s mid-term time so obviously people have been hitting the books pretty hard, but we still find time to take some breaks. On Tuesday, the men’s soccer team beat Longwood 2-0. Sometimes their games are a […]

LD Looks to Rebound

Milton Hershey Outlasts Susquenita in Overtime



Susquenita’s Oct. 9 loss against Milton Hershey (3-3-0) is proof that the early bird doesn’t always catch the worm.
