In just three weeks I will be walking across the stage on Taylor Field. I am not sure what will be harder, the life post-Lasell or post student-athlete. The opportunity of earning my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sports Communication and the first one in my entire family to earn a college degree is a huge honor.

I had to adjust to my new life without daily practices, games two or three days a week and waking up early on Saturday mornings to ride on the bus for the games played far away. More…

From Eddies to Lasers Reply

By Brianna Robbins Sports Editor

My high school’s mascot was the “Red Eddies”, named after the school’s founder, Edward Little, who was an attorney and philanthropist. All throughout high school other teams would chant, “What’s your mascot? What’s a Red Eddie?” Unfortunately, this lack of identity in my school’s mascot carried over to college.
