    Students in Grawn Hall will enjoy an addi-tional 6,600 square feet of space to help create a more professional business environment by the end of summer 2017.

    The renovation will cost approximately $10.8 million. Half of the cost will be raised through private source donations which will be matched by the Office of the President.

    While the amount raised could not be dis-closed due to the significant amount of asks still outstanding, the largest donation for the entire renovation has been $500,000 from an anony-mous donor, said Dean Charles Crespy.

    Many donations have been more than $100,000, including a $200,000 gift donated earlier this month.

    I think we are on schedule. We are very happy with the funds we have raised and we have a number of spaces that we have already received funding for where we will recognize prominent alumni who have made major contributions to the university, Crespy said.

    Developmental officer Sandy Sommer has a map on her office wall of the renovated Grawn Hall and specifically-identified spaces where do-nors wish to contribute. Plaques will be installed on the wall with donors names.

    The college has approached a variety of people

    Isabella Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship.

    to support the renovation. The decision process takes an average of two to three months.

    What we are doing is creating an environment where students are more likely to be spending time in school, Crespy said. Its going to make it a lot easier for us to transition high school gradu-ates into business professionals.

    To prevent construction from interrupting classes, renovations will take place during the next two summers.

    Howell sophomore Josh Harrison said getting rid of the old-fashioned feel of the building may make it more marketable to business majors.

    The new update will make it much more appeal-ing to business majors, Harrison said. After all, they do say that when you feel good, you do good.

    Hannah Rymal is excited to see the classrooms updated to help provide a better learning envi-ronment for students.

    With technology advancing so quickly, students have more tools available to them for success, said the Grand Haven senior. Therefore, it is important for the renovation to capture that need.

    Blue Light Emergency Phones used 85 times since 2012By: Jacquelyn Zeman

    Staff [email protected] | [email protected]

    Installed throughout campus more than 20 years ago, Blue Light Emergency Phone usage has dwindled since its inception to just 85 calls since 2012.

    But they arent going anywhere any time soon, said Central Michigan University Police Lt. Cameron Wassman, who believes them to be a valuable com-munication tool for when someone is found in a bad spot on campus.

    Overall they are not used that often at all, Was-sman said. The legitimate use is half a dozen times a year for the whole system.

    When the call button is pressed at any of the 28 Blue Light locations, it will be directed to the campus police dispatch system.

    The Blue Lights are in very conspicuous areas, usually with a light pole or a streetlight right there, Wassman said. The one time one of those is used for somebody who is being followed, for someone who is the victim of a crime, or anything like that, the whole system pays for itself ten times over.

    The most recent Blue Light additions were added by the lacrosse and soccer fields on the south end of campus, as well as by the research facilities off of Den-nison Road. These locations have not been added to the official CMU Blue Light map.

    While safety apps have added CMU to their network, Wassman does not endorse any apps in the place of the Blue Light phones.

    The problem is not everybody has a smartphone, Wassman said. Depending on the situation, you may not be in a position to be able to find your phone, open the app and push the button.

    In an effort to ensure the safety of students, a Blue Light App has added CMU to their network. The app, however, is not affiliated with CMU.

    Lauren Wilbanks, director of communications at BlueLight app, said it is not just for the use of a student population, but the general public and their safety.

    If you call 911 from your cell phone it may not get routed to the right place, but they also may not know where you are, Wilbanks said.

    Wilbanks said finding student location based on cell phone calls is very difficult, as dispatchers try to figure out location by triangulating the cell phone tower a phone is using, which can be off by about 1,000 feet.

    What our app is doing is making sure it gets routed to the right place, so off campus (calls get) routed to 911, Wilbanks said. We can also use location data from GPS, which is much more ac-curate - within 60 feet, generally outdoors to give (emergency respondents) a more accurate idea of where you are.

    While the app can track and dispatch police from any location, it is only able to dispatch university po-lice in their network. On campuses where the app is not active, it will route to a local public safety center.

    The app costs $9.99 per year when registering with a university email. The price is $19.99 for a regular yearly subscription.

    Greek Life is expensive, but that doesnt deter students from joining.

    At Central Michigan University, there are 32 Greek organizations, including sororities, fraternities and multicultural chapters.

    Recruitment began Sept. 13 for fraternities, and Sept. 18 for sororities. While other students might not understand the allure of Greek organizations, those already involved or going through recruitment say Greek Life at CMU holds values that match their own. The recruit-ment process is thorough, because students are encouraged to keep an open mind and find the organization thats right for them.

    Chesterfield sophomore Samantha Pleiness said both her siblings were in the same sorority when they attended CMU, but shes trying to learn about other chapters as she goes through the recruitment process.

    Im trying not to sway that way if theres one that is a better fit for me, Pleiness said. I want to meet lifelong friends. When I was a freshman I used to look at the Greeks and think theyre all the same, but then I met more people who are actually in (Greek Life) and it changed my mind.

    Those going through recruitment have a lot to think about when choosing their new home. While an enriching experience for some, there are costs associated with being a member of Greek Life that arent just financial. Manag-ing time commitments and facing harmful stereotypes make the choice to Go Greek a heavy one.

    Material costsPleiness said she knew Greek Life was expen-

    sive, because her sisters went through the same process she is now beginning.

    Pleiness came prepared.I worked a buttload this summer because I know

    its not cheap, she said. But I want to learn more about myself and be more involved on campus.

    Pleiness was right to keep the financial re-

    Making the Grade

    Fraternities Sororities

    One of the values of Greek Life at Central Michigan University is academic success. Greek students must fulfill a certain amount of study hours and keep their GPAs at a point specified by their chapter. Here are the rankings from the spring 2015 semester.

    Average GPA: 2.93

    CMU mens GPA: 3.08

    Highest fraternity GPA: Sigma Alpha Epsilon at 3.04

    Lowest Fraternity GPA: Pi Kappa Phi at 2.65

    Average GPA: 3.16

    CMU womens GPA: 3.2

    Highest sorority GPA: Alpha Sigma Tau at 3.33

    Lowest sorority GPA: Delta Zeta at 2.54

    sponsibility in mind; there are many small costs associated with Greek Life, which could add up to a big bill by the end of a semester. Dues for organizations are usually between $400-$600 per semester.

    Central Michigan Life requested a list of due rates from the Office of Student Activities and Involvement, but was not given it by the time of publication.

    Greek Life Coordinator Katrina Crawford said Greeks are open with recruits about these costs from the start.

    Each chapter has payment plans that they talk about during recruitment, she said. They lay it all out for you we are very up front about it.

    Crawford also said the price of semester dues depends on the organizations national chapter.

    Some costs students may need to think about are new member fees, initiation fees, chapter

    dues, Panhellenic dues, sweetheart ap-parel, Greek Week dues, formal ticket fees and senior farewell costs.

    A students first semester in Greek Life could end up costing more than $1,000, after paying to be recognized by the organizations national chapter and purchasing a badge, but their first fee is a $60 required payment to be considered a potential new member.

    Greek students usually end up paying more for their undergraduate experience, shouldering the financial burden being a member in addition to the cost of college tuition. While fraternity men may have less specific guidelines on what to wear to certain events, women dish out more for for-mal wear, recruitment outfits, letters and gifts for their Big or Little.

    While searching for her sisterhood, Battle Creek senior Kailee Lewis was worried about the cost of Greek Life. She said she fell in love with her organization, and after that money was never a second thought.

    The Zeta Phi Beta member said she believes the cost of Greek Life may hin-der students from joining if they dont discuss it with current members. The National Panhellenic Council organiza-tions prefer to discuss financial matters behind closed doors, Lewis said, at what is referred to as informationals.

    Usually within the NPHC events, Greeks dont have to pay unless we are traveling to a different campus, she said. And even there, a lot of time its a discounted price because of your fellow Greeks on that campus.

    Throughout recruitment, potential new members are encouraged to ask specific questions about costs to their Gamma Chi, a member of Greek Life who disaffiliates from her sorority to help new members find one thats right for them. Each organization talks about the costs associated with joining and explains what its semester dues go to.

    Potential members are told to ask about payment plans, because most chapters have them. Sisters already involved are paying to be involved in Greek Life, so new members can learn how to balance their budgets.

    Friday, Sept. 18.

    Oak Park senior Raheem Kareem, a member of Beta Theta Pi, said people who arent involved in Greek Life make many assumptions about those who are.

    Some people think we think were better (than them), or that we pay for our friends, or that were a drinking club, Kareem said. But we care about a lot of different things on campus.

    Each Greek organization has a designated philanthropic cause it fundraises for. During recruitment, potential members are encouraged to talk to current members about their philanthropies and what it means to volunteer. While new members may not be passionate about certain issues upon joining Greek Life, members say passion will grow upon learning more about the cause.

    During Greek Week last year, organizations collectively raised more than $50,000 for the Angel Wings Fund, which donates college scholar-ships to children who have lost a parent to breast cancer. This was the largest amount of money Greeks at CMU have ever raised.

    Each Greek member must fulfill a required number of volunteer hours. Through a partnership established

    four years ago with the city of Mount Pleasant, Greeks participate in Greeks Clean the Streets. After this years Wel-come Weekend, 53 members collected 66 bags of trash from Bellows to High Street and Douglas to Lansing Street.

    Kareem said going Greek also helped him become more confident and com-fortable pursuing his goals throughout college, as the president of Google CMU.

    Going Greek made me into a lead-er, he said. I would have never had the

    confidence to do a lot of the things Im doing before Greek Life. If people dont know what its all about, maybe they should check it out for themselves.

    Potential Greek members do know about stereotypes associated with Greek Life, but some insist being a member isnt always what it seems.

    They do get stereotyped, but people have to look at the bigger picture and everything they really do, said Brigh-ton freshman Lisha Rodgers.

    Even with facing stereotypes, those involved in Greek Life have noticed having the connection helps when find-ing a job after graduation.

    Kayla Curran, an alumna of CMU and Delta Phi Epsilon, works at her sororitys headquarters, oversee-ing all of the chapters to make sure theyre being run properly. Through her work as a collegiate develop-ment consultant, she continues to promote the values she developed in her nearly four years of involvement in Greek Life.

    I like being able to empower women on a daily basis, Curran said. Im able to continue being passionate

    about this organization. Her sororitys philanthropy helped

    Curran overcome body issues she had throughout college, she said. Delta Phi Epsilon plans events about and donates funding to Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.

    Joining Greek Life and having the constant support is something that personally helped me, she said. I know that I wouldnt be who I am without Delta Phi Epsilon and what they support and stand for.

    Another Greek alumna, Emily Schwarzkopf, said having Greek par-ticipation on her resume has shown she has leadership skills and is able to interact with many different personal-ity types. Schwarzkopf works at the Michigan House of Democrats as an appropriations coordinator.

    Because Im working in politics, re-lationship building is a key part of my job, she said. Going through recruit-ment, with the different personalities you encounter, you learn to handle different kinds of people. The ability to talk about anything played a key (role) in my professional life.

    This is especially true about ideas that make you uncomfortable or even outraged. CMU has an open campus policy, as it should. Any person has the right to set foot on university property and engage the public in an open forum, even when their ideas are unpopular.

    The marketplace of ideas analogy says the best ideas emerge from competition in free, transparent public discourse. The metaphor is frequently cited in opinions by the Supreme Court and concludes that ideas and ide-ologies will be adopted by the massess according to their widespread acceptance. Hate speech and unpopular speech is protected by the First Amendment.

    Some speakers like preacher Rick Warzywak resort to graphic presentations and insults students have said they have ben called fags and whores to make a point. Even they deserve to have their place in the community discourse. It is important that students understand why sometimes volatile demonstrators are allowed to the right to speak on campus.

    At the same time, we ask them to treat students with respect. Being screamed at instead of talked to can make students feel like they arent being acknowledged as human beings and generally makes them unrecep-tive to your message.

    Obviously campus preachers have the right to be here. They dont have the right to harass or intimidate stu-dents. Come to CMU to educate, not incite aggression.

    People will respect you if you respect them. Yelling and berating students doesnt contribute to a productive discussion or meaningful change.

    When you are confronted with hate, walk away. While it is unfortunate that students are harassed when their only crime is walking to class, they are not a cap-tive audience and can choose not to listen. Do not resort to violence or return the aggression of demonstrators.

    Department of Journalism faculty Tim Boudraeu was right when he said the answer to bad speech is better speech. When you dont like what someone is saying, dont muzzle them, speak out against them with a demonstration of your own.

    With more than 20 religiously-affiliated Registered Student Organizations on campus, students have many options to practice their faith or learn about religion. Its important to always challenge ideas, regardless of whose they are.

    College is the place to share your opinions, prob-ably more than any other time your life. Do so with an open mind.1

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or

    abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for

    a redress of grievances.

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. If effort and fortitude were all it took to win, the Central Michigan University football team might be undefeated this season.

    Instead, the Chippewas dropped to 1-2 on the season, after their second loss of the year to a Power Five conference football program, in a heartbreaking 30-27 overtime loss to Syracuse University at the Carrier Dome.

    Trailing by double-digits at halftime, the Chip-pewas shut out Syracuse in the second half and forced the game into overtime, but CMU could not keep the Orange out of the end zone in the extra time.

    The Chippewas tied the game with seven seconds to play in regulation on the heave of a 29-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Cooper Rush to senior tight end Ben McCord, who caught 10 passes for 147 yards and the game-tying score.

    Rush finished 37-for-51 passing for 430 yards, two touchdowns and will lead CMU into a highly-anticipated matchup with an instate rival and Top 5 opponent next week: The Michigan State Spartans.

    MSU has been ranked among the top teams in college football all season and is 3-0 after handling Air Force 35-21 on Saturday. The Spartans gained nationwide respect a week earlier by downing the seventh-ranked Oregon Ducks.

    Weve got a big week ahead of us, Rush said. Were looking forward to it. Weve got a group of guys who knows how to come back from losses. Well have a good week of practice.

    Going to East Lansing to face one of the top half-dozen teams in the country will be one of CMUs biggest challenges in program history.

    Michigan States going to be a tough team, McCord said. A lot better than Syracuse. But I think we go into next week and start Tuesday with a good mindset.

    CMUs loss to SU marks the second time in three games the Chippewas have spooked a team from a Power 5 conference and come inches away from pulling of an upset. These near misses have given the Chippewas invaluable experience in pressure situations said first-year Head Coach John Bonamego.

    We battled back, hung tough and fought our way back in the game. Im really proud of them

    for that, Bonamego said. I was proud of the effort but not happy with the result. Michigan State is an awfully good team.

    To compliment Rushs efforts through the air, CMU established a legitimate rushing attack for the first time this season on Saturday.

    Chippewa rushers combined for only 158 yards on the ground on 62 carries in the first two games. Against Syracuse, sopho-more Devon Spalding and junior college transfer Jahray Hayes combined for 134 yards and one touchdown.

    Spalding also caught 10 passes for 102 yards.

    Devon Spalding running the football today played his guts out, Bonamego said. Were really proud of him. I think that was a breakout game for him. Were looking forward to seeing more of that in the future.

    With junior defensive line-man Joe Ostman (ankle) out of the lineup against SU, senior defensive end Blake Serpa was instrumental in the second-half shutout and recorded a key sack in the Orange red zone during the fourth quarter.

    The biggest moment of the first half was fraught with controversy.

    CMU sophomore defensive lineman Mitch Stanitzek was ejected for an illegal head-to-head hit on SU starting quarterback Eric Dungey, which knocked Dungey out of the game with an upper-body injury.

    He was evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and did not return. Dungeys playing status moving forward remains uncertain.

    It was the right call, Bonamego said. It was one of those plays. Mitch is a very aggressive guy, he is not a dirty player. Hes an outstanding young man. Id let him babysit my kids. He was not aiming for (Dungeys head). Those things happen so fast.

    Senior linebacker Tim Ham-ilton said even after a valiant comeback effort during the teams first road swing of the year, the Chippewas are not satisfied.

    Its always the expectation to win, Hamilton said. Standards are higher than theyve ever been around here, so we expect to win every game that we play.

    The 6-foot-1 junior is one of three new setters on

    the Central Michigan University volleyball team this year. She was the MVP of the Chippewa Challenge at McGuirk Arena after tallying 112 assists in three matches this weekend. She has 382 assists this season.

    She did a great job with her net play, said Head Coach Erik Olson of Sanchez on Saturday. Thats what she is fantastic at. She is the real deal.

    The two setters from the 2014 team, Kylie Copple and Danielle Thompson, are gone: Thompson gradu-ated and Copple transferred to Portland State. Olson had to replace 1,128 assists they provided last season.

    Sanchez joined this fall as a transfer from Iowa Western Community college, where she played her first two years. The team has relied on Sanchez for production in her first year competing in the NCAA.

    Sanchez, who has been going by her middle name Nicole rather than Kathia since moving to the United States, grew up playing volleyball in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. Motivated by her parents, she competed on the national team in high school before tearing her ACL.

    But playing volleyball in Puerto Rico was not for Sanchez. She decided to pursue a new path in the states.

    Since I was little, I have always wanted to come to the United States and play D1 volleyball and get a good education, Sanchez said. That (dream) came true.

    Sanchez was aided by special agents who helped her find a school to play for in America. Her landing spot was Iowa Western Community College.

    I loved it, Sanchez said. I loved the coaches. I loved my teammates. We were having fun inside and off the court. For me, the most important (thing) is to be a leader on the court. I learned that in my two years at Iowa Western.

    Sanchez led the Reivers to two consecutive NJCAA

    Tournament appearances and was named the NJCAA Division 1 Player of the Week twice. She is the schools all-time leader in assists (3,411) and earned All-Amer-ica honors in 2013 and 2014.

    Her success led to a phone call from Olson. San-chez visited CMU, loved its family environment and decided to make the transition from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Mount Pleasant.

    Olson said there are many qualities to Sanchezs game he admires.

    Shes got the idea of who to set, what time and what type of plays, Olson said. Shes getting a feel for the rhythm and how to break that rhythm in a match when the flow of the game is going this way or that way. Shes the real deal.

    Sanchez is not only the real deal on the court but also in the classroom. She made Academic-All Region her sophomore year at IWCC. Education is the num-ber one priority for Sanchez and said a goal for her this season is to get straight As. She is learning a lot, including English.

    I still have a lot to learn, Sanchez said of her English skills. I feel like Im better than last year. Im just learning throughout the days.

    Sanchez said the hardest part about transitioning to life in America was adjusting to the style of play.

    The coaches with how they train is different, Sanchez said. Everything is different. Ive learned to manage it. Coaches here focus on the stats. Thats what I like about it.

    Freshman setter Marissa Grant shared playing time with Sanchez early on. Grant has 97 assists this season but did not play in the Chippewa Challenge after Olson gave Sanchez the starting job.

    Grant said the setters have no competition and that they try to help each other out as much as possible.

    I think we have a great relationship, Grant said. The thing we work on the most is building relation-ships between positions. For us setters, were good teammates to each other. We help each other out in everything that we do.

    Sanchez wants to play professionally in her future, but is focused on helping the Chippewas in the present.

    The team is really outgoing, really fun and really creative, Sanchez said. They helped me with my English too, so I liked that.

    After taking a beating Friday night in a 3-1 loss to Evansville, the Central Michigan Univer-sity volleyball team fought hard on Saturday.

    The Chippewas swept San Jose State and Nebraska-Omaha on Saturday to win the Chippewa Challenge at McGuirk Arena. CMU improved to 5-8 on the season and will now focus on Mid-American Conference play, which is set to begin this weekend.

    A trio of road trips to Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan begins Friday before CMU comes back home to play Kent State Oct. 3.

    Head Coach Erik Olson said his team has talent but was not able to put everything together

    throughout the first three weeks of the season. Everything came to fruition on Saturday.

    We had a great Saturday, but I think our team locked in and figured some things out. Learn-ing how to win is a process for every team. This is what we had spurts of in every single match this season.

    Junior setter Kathia Sanchez dished 112 assists to win Tourna-ment MVP in her first action at McGuirk Arena. She said the fans in attendance really helped her and the team.

    I loved the energy we had and the crowd was amazing, Sanchez said. We came to fight.

    Freshman libero Jamison Wolf-fis was named Defensive MVP after recording 33 digs.

    Jamie did a great job of passing the ball, Olson said. That kept our offense going. I think teams

    were playing keep away from her.Sophomore outside hitter

    Taylor Robertson and senior middle blocker Angie White were named to the All-Tourna-ment team. White had 28 kills, including 23 on Saturday after being replaced by sophomore Paige Carey during the third set against Evansville Friday night.

    With it being my last year as a senior, its really special to be on the All-Tournament team at home, White said. Its a special feeling.

    Olson said the passing game has improved from last week to this week. He hopes all phases of the game will get better as the team heads to MAC play from now until November.

    Youve got to have a .500 record in MAC play to even have a chance, Olson said. I think that its important for us to play back-

    to-back good volleyball.The team has a lot to look for-

    ward to as the conference season begins, including a large amount of playing time for three key players. Sanchez and sophomore outside hitter Jordan Bueter (30 kills) did not leave the floor this weekend while Wolffis only took a few plays off.

    Olson has experimented with different rotations to try and kickstart his team.

    He played three defensive specialists at one time (Wolffis, senior Haley Barker and sopho-more Courtney Hiltibran) and also had Robertson and fellow sophomore outside hitter Jessica Meichtry play at the same time. He also platooned White and fellow senior middle blocker Kalle Mulford up front.

    Olson said his team had to make a decision to fight on Satur-

    day, and did. He hopes they choose to fight once MAC play arrives.

    Were athletic, Olson said. Were fast. Were powerful. We can do things but youve got to use the things you have in your

    tool belt to accomplish those things. Thats what the team started to do.

    CMU starts MAC play at 8 p.m. ET Friday at Northern Illinois.

    By Joe JuddStaff Reporter

    @josecan_yousee | [email protected]

    After honoring its seniors and the late Josie Seebeck prior to the match, Central Michigan University soccer fell to the Illi-nois State Redbirds 1-0 in double overtime Sunday.

    It was the inaugural game played at CMUs new synthetic turf soccer/lacrosse stadium.

    On a special day in terms of honoring and paying tribute to some great people and opening an absolutely fantastic facility, I wish the end result had been better, said Head Coach Peter McGahey. But Im really proud of the fight, focus and concentration the team showed.

    Though it remained a scoreless tie for most of the game, both teams had scoring opportunities.

    CMU had 18 shots, while the Redbirds managed 22, although only seven of Illinois States shots were on goal.

    The difficulty of the process, as I told the team, is you have a tendency to want success to come

    on our timeline, McGahey said. Unfortunately, the reality of it is success comes on its own timeline. You have to continue to have those difficulties and those struggles.

    Illinois State scored the win-ning goal with just over five minutes remaining in the second overtime period.

    The Chippewas will go back on the road to open the Mid-American Conference season for their next match against Western Michigan at 4 p.m. Oct. 2 at the WMU Soccer Complex. WMU is coming off a 1-1 double overtime decision against the Redbirds last Friday.

    The rival Broncos stand at 3-2-2 on the season. Both the Chippewas and the Broncos have played against DePaul this season, with WMU falling to the Blue Demons 2-0 on Sept. 11. CMU fell 1-0 two days later.

    It was a hard-fought battle and the outcome wasnt what we want-ed, Bunnell said. Weve lost before and weve bounced back before. I know were going to hit practice this week harder than ever.

    Making her first start of the

    season in the net Sunday was senior goalkeeper Maddy Bunnell. She made seven saves in the loss to Illinois State.

    She was happy to receive the start on senior day but said that was not her lone motivation in protecting the net.

    I dont think the glamour of senior day took anything away or added anything more to what we focused on today, Bunnell said. I really appreciate the way my team stepped up with everything going on today.

    Bunnell made seven saves in the double overtime decision, four of which came after the end of regulation.

    With the loss, the Chippewas enter conference play at 1-5-1.

    Losses like today are supposed to hurt, McGahey said. It makes you come back and show grit, determination and resiliency. I know the team has shown over the last three years.

    Freshman forward Alexis Pelafas shot the ball six times, lead-ing the team in the process, while junior midfielder Eliza Van de Kerkhove attempted three shots.

    Following a four-game road stretch, the Central Michigan University field hockey team had a chance to play at home Friday against UC Davis for another shot at its first win of the season.

    The first half ended scoreless, but within the first minute-and-a-half of the second half, senior middle fielder Kaysie Gregory scored for CMU off an assist by freshman backfielder Ally Davis.

    After a 20-minute scoring drought, the Aggies struck back when forward Jamie Garcia scored a goal off a penalty corner shot.

    When asked if the team had met his expectations after Fridays Spartan Invitational, Head Coach Matt Kaczor replied with a sigh.

    Oh, how do I put this nicely? he said.

    The Central Michigan Univer-sity cross country team struggled with humidity Friday, which led to below average race times.

    If you look at the times, they werent as impressive as they were in years past because of the course, Kaczor said. I would have liked to see a couple people run faster.

    There were bright spots in

    Fridays race. Kaczor said junior Jamie Madrigal had the race of the weekend moving up more than 50 places in 1 3/4 miles.

    She was moving through the group and really had a phenom-enal finish, Kaczor said.

    Madrigal finished third for the Chippewas and 70th overall in 23:46, running in the first 6K race of the year.

    Senior Kelly Schubert finished 21st overall (22:21) and freshman Samantha Allmacher was 40th (23:12), taking first and second for the Chippewas respectively.

    Along with Madrigal, Kaczor was pleased with freshmen Mark Beckman (66th) (26:40) and Luke Anderson (70th) (26:42) and junior Spencer Nousain (73rd) (26:46), who finished first, second

    and third for the Chippewas in the mens 8K race.

    Although they felt like they had a lot more left, they understand theres more season ahead of us. Kaczor said. They are hungry for more and I cant be disappointed with how they competed.

    The Chippewas ran without seniors Nate Ghena, Dekalita Silas and sophomore Emmanuel Joseph on the mens team and sophomore Kirsten Olling, se-niors Breanne Lesnar and Alyssa Dyer, junior Michaela Bundy and redshirt freshman Megan ONeil on the womens team.

    The Chippewas next race is the Roy Griak Invite Sept. 26, where only the top nine runners will compete.
