Saint Mary’s to hold walk for hungry

first_imgThis event is another way to CAT is working to bridge the gap between Saint Mary’s and the community.  “It is a great way to bring food insecurity to the forefront during the Easter season, and provides support for a local food pantry — Little Flower Food Pantry — that is always in need,” Critchlow said.  The walk will benefit the Little Flower Catholic Church Food Pantry.   Saint Mary’s students, faculty and staff and the South Bend community will come together Sunday to walk for the hungry during the Yes We Can! Walk 2010. It will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, and will start at Saint Mary’s Student Center, head to the Grotto at Notre Dame and then end back at the Student Center. It will happen, “rain or shine,” and “children and dogs — on leashes — are welcome,” said Olivia Critchlow, assistant director of the Office of Civic and Social Engagement (OCSE) and coordinator of the event.  Critchlow said events like these help to bring the community and the College closer together. Cost to participate is three cans of food or a $2 donation per person or $5 or three cans/person if you bring a team, Carrie Call, director of OCSE said in an e-mail to the student body.center_img According to Critchlow, the walk is open anyone and people are encouraged to join. Those interested can register online at http://www3.saintmarys.edu/ocse/calendar/walk-for-hungry-form. There will also be a booth in the Student Center Atrium today and tomorrow during lunch and dinner hours.  Even though last year’s event happened to fall on a rainy day, 75 walkers participated, Critchlow said.  “I am hoping that we are able to at reach the same attendance this year, if not exceed that number,” Critchlow said.  The walk was first held last year, and began when the College Academy of Tutoring (CAT) scholars decided to organize an event for the spring that would help connect the College with the greater community, Critchlow said. CAT is an organization of students from the College that began in 2006 to help tutor elementary-age children in need at local elementary schools.  “Events that involve and benefit the South Bend community are great ways to keep the College in touch with the community’s needs and are excellent opportunities for our students to stand in solidarity with the poor,” Critchlow said. last_img read more

It also keeps us fresh and lets us be stronger toward the ends of games.”Junior two-meter Patricia Jancso led the Women of Troy with four goals, including a buzzer-beater from half-court.Junior driver Chelsea Silvers tied a career high with three goals, and sophomore two-meter Kaleigh Gilchrist also recorded a hat trick.“It was pretty cool, but I wasn’t really focused on scoring,” Silvers said. “It’s more about finishing opportunities as a team. … When you have the opportunity, take it, but don’t be a ballhog.”After the Women of Troy jumped out to a 4-1 lead near the end of the first quarter, USC coach Jovan Vavic subbed in more of his seldom-used players, who played most of the match against Hartwick and held strong.“It’s always great when everyone gets some playing time,” Rosenthal said. “Not a lot of teams can put six girls in with a new wave [of substitutions].”After Rosenthal and junior driver Dominique Sardo commenced the scoring, Hartwick cut the deficit to 2-1 on a strike from Jemma Dendy Young.It was the only score that sophomore goalkeeper Flora Bolonyai would concede for the Women of Troy -— from there, USC went on a 9-0 run that spanned over halftime.“We were just trying to execute the half-court offense that we’ve been practicing,” Rosenthal said. “Everyone has had a lot of practice with that [set].”It showed. The Women of Troy scored five goals each in the second, third and fourth periods.After collecting four saves in the first half, Bolonyai gave way to senior goalkeeper Morgan Vickers, who kept up solid defense in the third quarter.Heading into the final period, USC held a dominating 14-2 lead.“This program prides itself a lot on its defense, and knowing the system, and executing what the coaches tell us,” Silvers said. “If we execute what we’re supposed to do, then it leads to good things.”USC’s defense started to slip a little in the fourth quarter, causing coach Vavic to yell, “We aren’t playing defense!” just as Hartwick scored early in the period to make the score 14-3.Vickers let up two more goals in the fourth quarter, but the Hawks never made a run, as the Women of Troy responded to every Hartwick goal with a score of their own.The Women of Troy will now prepare for their crucial home match on Saturday against No. 5 California (16-5, 3-1) at 1 p.m. at McDonald’s Swim Stadium.Though it is not the team’s last home game, the squad’s three seniors — Nadia Dan, Kara-Leigh Huse and Vickers — will be honored in a pregame ceremony for Senior Day.last_img read more
