Zac Benson: USU Eastern baseball player

“I love playing baseball; it clears my mind when I play.” Said Zac Benson; 19, baseball player at Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah. Benson has played baseball his whole life and currently plays outfield for USU-CEU.

A long way from Brazil

What would cause a professional coach from another country to come to a small community college in Price, Utah. In his own words, Coach Adjalma Becheli expressed, “If you want to succeed in, you have to take risks. I left my family, friends, career; to come to America. If you want to achieve your dreams, you have to pay the price.” Coash Bechelli is respectfully known as Coach Vando to his basketball players and many people on campus.
For the past three years, USU-CEU has become the starting point toward achieving his goals and

From Point A to Point Madsen

Utah State University-Eastern baseball coach is slightly frustrated with his team. Coach Scott Madsen said, “we’re a young team, I knew we would have struggles, but I mean we’re really talented.”
Madsen said the Scenic Western Athletic Conference website has their record wrong and that they have won more than just four games.
The main team issue is they are not consistent. “One inning they’ll go out and they (pitchers) will be perfect, nobody can hit them ( the pitches that are being thrown). The next inning, you know, they’ll go out and they can’t find the strike zone,” said Madsen.

College basketball, March Madness, losing the glimmer

While watching the final game of the 2010-11 season taking place in Houston, I have been thinking about what can make college basketball a better product. The upsets are a good thing and bring attention to the game but that is just for one month out the year.
The mid-majors of the college world are gaining on the BCS conferences when it comes to making deep tournament runs. With Bulter being in their second straight National Championship game, we may see a chance of a non-BCS conference winning a title for the first time since University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Baseball goes stone cold mid-season

It’s been a tough season for the baseball team as they continue to look for the right chemistry in the always tough Scenic West Athlectic Conference.
On March 25, USU-CEU played a double-header against Salt Lake Community College at home. The first game the Eagles were defeated 15-2. Craig Brinkerhoff and Justin Orton scored the only two runs for the Eagles. Nuho Kraja had the only RBI. Tory Ullibarri pitched the first four and two thirds innings; giving up seven hits and five runs and received the loss.

Women’s basketball recruiting

Another season has come and gone. That does not keep the lady Eagles from continuing practice. As the spring semester comes to a close, the ladies will work on personal skills. This will allow for growth next fall. Many women practice ball handling and shooting techniques. Occasionally there will be a recruit or two that comes and scrimmages with the ladies.

Eagle Frenzy: a great way to rock around the clock

Have any plans for April 15 and 16? If so, cancel them because USU-Eastern campus has something awesome going on. The Eagle Frenzy is what I’m talking about. This is a first and something you should not miss out on. It is starting on April 15 at 9 p.m. and doesn’t end until 4 a.m.

How to get more sleep in your busy schedule

Being in college, you don’t seem to get as much sleep as you used to. Either that or you just can’t seem to function with the same amount of hours of sleep as you did in high school.
How can you get more sleep? How can you sleep more soundly? What can make you relax so you can fall asleep faster?
A Woman’s Day article, titled “Tips for Sleeping Better,” states, “Get as much (or as little) as you need to feel well-rested. Most adults typically need between seven and nine hours, but everyone’s needs vary.”

SUN Center starts another “Seven Days of Service”

Perhaps you remember seeing candy-cane striped “7s” all over campus near the end of last semester. Maybe you recall seeing a bunch of students hovering over quilts as you walked past the SUN Center. Hopefully you stopped to join them.
Whatever the case, the SUN Center is preparing for a second bout of the “Seven Days of Service.”
The original Seven Days of Service happened the week before finals last semester. The project was a great success. It resulted in over 300-service hours from over 150 volunteers.

Student government’s legacy is to raise money

An endowment fund for scholarships is the legacy that this year’s student government members want to leave behind. It is at the top of the student government agenda for the remainder of this academic year.
After many months of meetings, student government has the nod to start accruing funds into the coffers for the endowment.
The fund will be used as a scholarship for students. The criteria to use in awarding this fund have not been set yet. Student government members hope to meet with students to determine how the money should be used.

Annual CEU student art exhibit at Gallery East; submissions due today

The College of Eastern Utah’s art department is pleased to announce the Annual Juried Student Art Show, which will be held from April 11 through May 5 at Gallery East. The art show is open to all CEU students and includes all art forms and media. Work will be accepted at the gallery from April 4 through April 7. Gallery director Noel Carmack says, “Unfortunately, we no longer offer graphic arts and print-making courses, so we won’t benefit from seeing artwork created in those disciplines this year. We hope to make up for it in other areas like painting, drawing, watercolor and ceramics.”

Failure to heed fire alarm results in fine; be it false or not

The fire alarm has just gone off in your dormitory. You just got out of the shower or pulled a freshly warmed meal out of that handy microwave oven. What is your first instinct? Flee?
False fire alarms have become an issue on many college campuses across Utah. It seems as though every alarm raised is never real, so students have become accustomed to just blocking it out. It becomes just another background noise while students take their sweet time to exit the building.
