The Lasell College Women’s Field Hockey team joined a new conference this year, leaving the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) and joining the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC).

The change puts the Women’s Field Hockey team in the same conference as the rest of the athletic teams at Lasell. Lasell is one of four teams to join the GNAC from the NAC, the other three being Rivier, St. Joseph’s Maine, and Simmons. Mount Ida is in its first year as a program, Anna Maria joined from the New England Collegiate Conference, and Johnson and Wales was an independent program last year.

Abroad with my team Reply

Brianna Robbins – Sports Editor

This past August, my field hockey team and I spent five days in Bermuda for pre-season. The trip had been discussed since I first stepped foot onto this campus my freshman year. When I first heard about this trip, I thought it was too expensive and there would be too much time spent fundraising before this trip would ever happen. I look back on these past three years I spent at different fundraising events and at the end of the day it was all worth it.

Julian Casablancas is known by many as one of America’s rock gods. Known best as the lead singer of The Strokes, Casablancas has won the hearts of many with his powerful voice and signature lyrics. On his second solo effort, “Tyranny,” he paired up with the Voidz, an eclectic group of musicians, and created an album that veers far away from The Strokes’ work, leaving fans perplexed at first, but eventually happy (or at least interested) as the material is strong in its own way.
