Late season woes

February 27, 2014

Making the national tournament for any sport is never easy. But after two close late-season losses, a potentially short-handed Truman State women’s basketball team has a more difficult road than most teams if they wish to qualify for the NCAA tournament.
The Bulldogs dropped a contest at home against Maryville University 90-84 last Thursday, and at the University of Missouri-St. Louis 80-76 Saturday — a game where they also lost two key starters to injuries. While there is no set formula to determine if the basketball team will make nationals, they will need a strong run during the GLVC conference tournament — which begins this weekend — to qualify. The winner of the GLVC tournament receives an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. […]

Baseball looks to bounce back

February 27, 2014

When spring weather begins to bring warmth and new weather emerges at the end of winter, so begins the season of baseball.
Truman State baseball has been practicing indoors for the past few months, and finally got a taste of warmer weather while taking to the field two weekends ago in Arkansas. The team has played only three games thus far during 2014, but they already have shed light on things to look for this season from the Bulldogs. […]

Carlson looks to end strong

February 27, 2014

The Bulldog legacy of senior forward Mike Carlson can be traced back to a single apology.
Those familiar with Carlson’s story know what he was met with when head coach Matt Woodley came to the Bulldog program three years ago. Woodley told Carlson he didn’t have the skills to play with this team, and Carlson asked for one chance to prove his worth. A week later, Woodley called Carlson into his office, apologized for his snap judgment and said he was the type of player the Bulldog program needed. […]

Students go bald for St. Baldrick’s

February 27, 2014

Most people can choose what haircut they want — long, short, buzzed, cropped or layered. But there are some children who have no choice.
This semester as part of an event hosted by Alpha Phi Omega, some Truman State students will shave their heads to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation March 30 in the Student Union Building. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation was founded during 1999 by John Bender, Tim Kenny and Edna McDonnell, and is a organization that raises money for childhood cancer research. Since 2005, the foundation has raised more than $100 million for childhood cancer research grants. ­ […]

Remembering Teri Heckert

February 27, 2014

One week before she passed away, psychology professor Teri Heckert was doing what she loved — teaching in a classroom at Truman State.
Heckert passed away Feb. 19 after a battle with breast cancer. Although Heckert was diagnosed a second time with the disease during May 2013, she continued to teach until a week before her death.
Junior Rachel Rigsby’s experience with Heckert began her sophomore year, when she questioned whether or not she wanted to pursue her psychology degree. Heckert, who was the department chair at the time, laid out the pros and cons of the major, and Rigsby said this helped her make her decision continue with the psychology major. She took one of Heckert’s classes geared toward future educators, Motivation and Emotion, and said she learned more during Heckert’s class than all her others at Truman. […]

New album rocks a rhythm

February 27, 2014

If it wasn’t already apparent, Annie Clark — a.k.a. St. Vincent — does what she wants. Her 2007 debut “Marry Me” was eclectic but not too odd. Her 2009 “Actor” release featured more distortion and dissonance but kept pretty woodwind arrangements. During 2011 she explored the electronic realm and came out with a dark, inventive album called “Strange Mercy.” After collaborating and touring with art-pop maestro David Byrne on “Love This Giant,” 31-year-old Clark returned with dyed white hair and a self-titled whopper.
