As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. That’s the case every year at the conclusion of the men’s volleyball season. With a 3-0 Greater Northeast Athletic Conference semifinals loss to top-seeded Rivier on April 10, seniors Tim Anderson and Matt Dionne wrapped up their collegiate careers. The April 5th Senior Day celebrated the careers of Anderson and Dionne, but it was actually the second time they participated in a senior day together. The two Danville, NH natives graduated from Timberlane Regional High School in 2010 and have been friends since seventh grade.

After losing only one senior from last season, the softball team capitalized on the opportunity to improve this spring with help from many returnees, some new freshman, and a brand new set of coaches.

The Lasers spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was a success, as the team compiled a 5-3 record. Last year the team went 3-7 during the same trip.

Not only does the softball team use the tournament to play different competitors on the field, but they also use the trip as a chance to get to know each other better and become closer as team. The team welcomed six new freshmen to the team and one transfer.

It is no surprise that the 2012 and 2013 Greater Northeast Athletic Conference Player of the Year is dominating the field again for another incredible season.

“Phallacies,” a play on words made to sound like the combination of fallacy and phallic, challenges what it means to be a man and to be masculine in our society. The all male cast consisted of six men from diverse ethnic backgrounds to showcase all different stereotypes of men. The performance had 15 acts and all of the acts denounced ways men are “supposed” to act and behave. It challenged the way men act towards women from cat calling and slurs to domestic violence.

“Here and Nowhere Else” shines Reply

Natalie Kfoury Co-Editor-In-Chief

If any band is deserving of your attention right now, it’s Cloud Nothings. The three-piece alternative rock band with indie, lo-fi, and noise influences is nothing but strong, fresh, and skilled in what they do so well. With 2014’s “Here and Nowhere Else,” the band proves they are a force to be reckoned with and one of the strongest bands out there. This band will be huge.

“Here and Nowhere Else” is Cloud Nothing’s third LP. Following the critical success from “Attack on Memory” (2012) which produced catchy singles like “Stay Useless,” the band took what worked well from the past, improved upon it, and polished everything so well that “Here and Nowhere Else” stands far above their previous work.
