The Eagle

The Justice League takes on the Tumor Tower of Doom®

It sure does feel good to be back again for another year at the College of Eastern Utah. But we can’t help but notice that some things aren’t quite the same as when we left last year. They say that if you are not progressing, you are digressing. After seeing some of the changes that happened around campus over the summer, we must wonder about the direction that CEU has taken.

Eagles name Emilee Madsen as captain

As the CEU volleyball players sat in their locker room the night before their first game (the alumni game) listening to Coach Brent Martindale, an announcement was made: “This year’s team captain will be … Emilee Madsen.”
He continued on listing the expectations and duties she, as the captain, will be performing throughout the season.

Photographic exhibit features Nine-Mile Canyon

A photographic exhibit of Nine-Mile Canyon opens Friday at 7 p.m. in the CEU Prehistoric Museum. The exhibit features photography by Diane Orr and a video by storyteller Larry Cesspooch.
The history of the canyon started over 4,000 years ago when a group of hunters and gatherers now known as the Fremont Indians inhabited a nearby canyon. They eventually disappeared, whether they were killed off or simply absorbed into other native cultures, no one knows for sure. But they left a legacy in their wall art in what is now known as Nine-Mile Canyon.

Scott Madsen takes over as interim coach

The CEU baseball team has a new baseball coach this year. Scott Madsen, 24, has taken over this position from his older brother, Eric Madsen.
Scott was the pitching coach for the Eagles the last four seasons and said that he is excited and anxious to get the season started as the new head coach. Scott also pitched for the CEU baseball team in the 97-98 season and then again in the 98-99 season.
Coach Madsen said that the team looked very strong this year as he had eight sophomores coming back from last season and 28 freshmen coming into the program.
