The No. 4-ranked Lady Pirates softball team dropped two games this weekend to Peach Belt Conference leaders, the No. 12-ranked North Georgia Nighthawks. It was also Senior Day for the Pirates. Kacie Patterson, Kat Vogler and Andrea Dalton were all honored at their last home games at Pirate Field.
“The experience is bitter sweet because it’s a day to be recognized for playing the game you love, but it’s also a sad day because it is our last home game as Pirates,” Vogler said.

The Philosophy Club screened the movie “Hannah Arendt” at their meeting on April 3. The movie follows the famous philosopher, who survived a detention camp in France, as she covered the trial of former Nazi Adolf Eichmann.
As she watches the trial and reads the transcripts, Arendt tries to “reconcile the mediocrity of the man” with his shocking crimes. The weak man in the glass cage is not the monster she anticipated. Eichmann’s defense is that he was following orders. He kept the trains of people moving without good or bad intentions – without thinking about any possible consequences.

The Rape Crisis Center of Savannah reports that only 32 percent of college students report violence by a dating partner, and approximately 90 percent of the victims know their attacker. Dating abuse isn’t simply about your partner’s annoying habits; it’s the physical, sexual, emotional and/or verbal abuse.
The reality is that dating violence is a crucial topic that continues to be wrongly silenced. On April 2, Armstrong’s CUB replaced the silence with action when it held “You the Man.”
“You the Man” is a one-man show which portrays five different characters tackling abusive scenarios. The event was held in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAMM) and incorporated a play and panel. The panel included Helen Schandolph, Armstrong counselor, and Kesha Gibson, Executive Director of the Rape Crisis Center in Savannah.

Last year, in Kevin Ollie’s first year as the head coach of the University of Connecticut’s men’s basketball team, the Huskies had to watch others celebrate in March Madness. UConn was under a ban from postseason play due to academic issues of former players.
One year later, Ollie and senior point guard Shabazz Napier led the No. 7 seeded Huskies to a national championship, defeating the preseason favorite Kentucky Wildcats 60-54.
In 2001 as a freshman, Napier danced under the confetti in Texas and celebrated with his teammates after winning his first championship. The Huskies were led by an undersized, sharp-shooting guard, but back then it was Kemba Walker and Napier was playing second fiddle.
