Field hockey dominates in win against Catholic

This past Saturday, the Hopkins field hockey team had a chance to get back on track, hosting The Catholic University of America Cardinals. After suffering their first loss of the season in a nail-biter to the Christopher Newport University (CNU) Captains, they were looking to right the ship against another non-Conference opponent.

One of the top stories in Hopkins sports last fall was the Hopkins field hockey team’s incredible run, which saw the Blue Jays finish with a 15-2 regular season before going on to win the Centennial Conference Tournament. Hopkins would take that momentum into the National Collegiate Athletic Association Tournament, winning two games and advancing all the way to the Final Four before seeing their season ended against the eventual runner-up Tufts University.

It’s a new NFL season. That means we are only a few months away from the Patriots winning another championship. Sadly. They are again favored to win it all in 2020 with 7-1 odds followed by the Chiefs, Saints and Rams. The Ravens have slightly worse than average odds at 32-1.

It’s time for the Athletics culture to change now

A lot — to say the least — has happened since Aug. 10, 2018. And ever since, I’ve wanted to speak up. Every week I’ve told myself, “This is the week I’m going to publish my reflection.” And every week, I cowered. I was afraid people would use my words against me, and I have no doubt that they still will.
