Lasell College Radio to broadcast athletics Reply

By Max Berkowitz1851 Staff

Lasell College Radio (LCR) and the Athletic Department have combined efforts to begin broadcasting the college’s NCAA Division III events via live commentators and video equipment rented from the IT Department.

With the lead coming from senior Servi Barrientos, who was recently been named as the Sports Director of LCR, the campus can look forward to live broadcasts with entertaining commentators.

Barrientos, Athletic Director Kristy Walter, Sports Information Director Emily Machado and Dr. Brian Wardyga of LCR have worked together over the past couple of months to get the program up and running. On Saturday, January 31, the five student crew made up of Barrientos, senior Steve Brennan, junior Alyssa Adams, and sophomores James Payne and Greg Camillone worked hard to due a run through of what the program is set to look like.

“I went out by myself to recruit students who have my same vision in this project. I want to be able to leave my mark at Lasell after I graduate in May and this is what I want it to be,” Barrientos said.

Years ago, the Athletic Department had a similar program, like the one Barrientos has started, but quickly fell off due to lack of student interest. “As the newest member of Athletics, I have been looking for new ideas on how we can get the Lasell name out there,” said Machado. “With the run-through complete, I think the students have shown great interest in it to guide our department for years to come.”

Expectations set by Barrientos and the LCR crew were high going into the test, when the Lasell men’s basketball took on Emmanuel College. “The overall test was a great success. We went above and beyond our expectations for the run and I for sure took upon three of the best students I could have for this job,” Barrientos said. “I wanted to get people who wanted to have fun and learn about the career at the same time.”

The planning to broadcast began late last semester when Barrientos and Adams began interviewing the basketball coaching staff, Aaron Galletta and Todd Montana, before, during, and after their home contests to get a feel for what was to come.

“We knew right from the start, that this was something everyone was immediately on board with,” said Barrientos.

With the number of students increasing since 2009, Lena Berc, Director of International Services, has been essential to the growth of the program, benefiting students who choose to expand their knowledge in global outputs.

What coaching experience have you had?

“I spent ten years coaching basketball and three years coaching women’s volleyball prior to moving to Lasell as the Sports Information Director. I spent two years as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Union College. I then spent two years as the assistant men’s basketball coach at LeMoyne College, located in Syracuse, N.Y. From LeMoyne I moved to Green Mountain College, in Poultney, Vt. where I was the head men’s basketball coach for six seasons and worked as the head women’s volleyball coach for three years.” More…

Coming off a season ending with a disappointing loss to Becker College in the quarterfinals of the GNAC Tournament last year, men’s lacrosse hopes its key returners can spark a rally to push them far into the spring. Junior goalie David Walen looks to stand tall in net as a leader of the team, while dynamic midfielder Dylan Fernandez looks to provide support. Sophomores Andrew Suh, Casey Sullivan, and Pat Egan look to take charge on offense for the Lasers. Lasell will miss graduated senior defender Matthew Keiler, whose strong skills held the opposition from putting the ball in the net. More…
