Had you approached Nick Garifalos as a sixth grader in Spotswood, New Jersey, he may have told you that cross country was just a relaxing, afternoon activity to help him stay in shape. Nowadays, the freshman has a different take on the sport. More…

As the volleyball flew out of bounds and the Rivier College Raiders earned match point in the Greater Northeast Athletic Conference semi-finals versus my teammates and me, my first ever collegiate volleyball season came to an end as abruptly as it started. We packed our belongings, gathered the med kits and water bottles, and took our long faces back to the dorms. More…

Sometimes the best way to get to know a group of people is to spend as much time with them as possible. For Lasell’s spring athletes, that’s the method of choice. Or perhaps it could be that it’s been freezing on campus the past few days and the idea of being in a warm area with sun and palm trees beats icicles and snowbanks. That’s just a hunch.  More…

Going into the match, the Lasers were coming off of a 14-point loss to Brandeis and had fallen to 1-2 on the season. Williams’ College woes continue as they fall to 0-4. More…

New editor joins the team Reply

Tristan Davis – Sports Editor

If you asked me if I thought I’d be writing this column when I applied here last fall, I’d probably think you were in-sane. Yet, here I am. I’d think you were even crazier if you said “You’re going to be the new Sports Editor for The 1851 Chronicle.” But once again, here I am.

My name is Tristan Davis and I’m a freshman at Lasell. I’m probably really easy to spot in a crowd, because I’m 6’6” and colorblind. The colorblindness is important because I’m likely wearing something that doesn’t match at all now that I don’t have my mom to pick out all my clothes for me. More…
