Air Force, Hartwick pose physical threats

·

Physical teams have caused the IU men's soccer team trouble early this season and that's just what they will face this weekend as they travel to the Butler Classic for a pair of weekend matches. The No. 9 ranked Hoosier squad will face the Air Force Academy at 6 p.m. tonight at Kuntz Field in Indianapolis and will then go to battle with Hartwick College at noon Sunday. The games begin a five-game road trip for the Hoosiers.

IU shuts out Musketeers

·

IU got physical and put in a winning performance Thursday night during their game against Xavier. The star of the game was junior forward Shelly Gruszka who scored the game's only two goals. Gruszka first hit the back of the net off an assist from junior defender Carly Everett in the 23rd minute.

Leading by example

·

Leadership is a key ingredient in all aspects of sport, and to juniors Becky Obrecht and Audrey Giesler of the women's cross country team, leadership is something that comes with experience.

Twin runners look for successful year after redshirt season

·

In 1998, Colorado coach Mark Wetmore was able to lure two of the top recruits in the nation to his university, identical twins Ed and Jorge Torres. Last year the Torres twins were able to lead Colorado to a national championship and are a favorite to repeat this year.

Senior Jones not just a team player

·

Field hockey coach Amy Robertson ranks Akila Jones' competitive focus on par with Tiger Woods'. To some, that might seem like a lofty comparison. But, they have probably never seen Jones play. With her dominating yet poised presence in the backfield, Jones has helped create a foundation for field hockey at IU. The 5-foot 11-inch, fifth-year senior hails from Potomac, Md., a city just outside Washington, D.C. Jones earned varsity letters all four years at Winston Churchill High School in both field hockey and basketball.

Forget the jokes, the truth hurts

·

Two days ago, I got an urgent message from my friend Stephanie, who wanted to know if I had gotten any death threats yet. And if not, she wanted to know if the reason I wasn't answering my phone was because I was, at the time, being held in a headlock. Later that night, I went to my other job at the SRSC, where I was asked if I had gotten any scathing e-mails, or anyone knocking on my front door yet. The guy told me that he would not have been able to write what I wrote. Which led me to ask, what is it really that I did? Wrote the truth? Sorry to have to go back to the old cliche, but it's true that the truth hurts.

NFL legend Unitas dies at 69

·

Johnny Unitas, the Hall of Fame quarterback who broke nearly every NFL passing record and won three championships with the Baltimore Colts in an 18-year career, died Wednesday at age 69. Unitas died of a heart attack, Baltimore Ravens spokesman Chad Steele said. Steele had no other details. Unitas underwent emergency triple-bypass surgery in March 1993 after a heart attack.

Hoosiers battle Xavier tonight

·

After a 3-1 setback at Cincinnati last week, the Hoosiers battle Xavier tonight at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The Hoosiers enter the game 1-2. The Hoosiers have allowed seven goals in their first three contests this year, and they need to improve their defense against the Musketeers, with conference play only a week away. "We need to solidify organization at the back and establish a rhythm," coach Mick Lyon said.

New QB for next game

·

Fifth-year senior Gibran Hamdan was named the starter at quarterback by coach Gerry DiNardo Tuesday. Hamdan will make his first career start for the Hoosiers Saturday against Kentucky. Hamdan will replace senior Tommy Jones who sustained a concussion in last Saturday's 40-13 loss to Utah. "I am going to play Gibran (Hamdan), we are going to start Gibran," DiNardo said. "Tommy (Jones) can't practice today, and I don't know that Tommy would be ready for the game. So obviously that plays into it, but Gibran is going to start in the game."

Sports serve as outlet on anniversary

·

CHICAGO -- The colorful NL pennants that usually fly above the Wrigley Field scoreboard were gone, replaced by a lone American flag at half-staff. Songs such as "Let it Be" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" played during batting practice instead of the usual bubblegum pop music. And the electronic message board carried a simple message: "We Shall Not Forget." "I first felt guilty about coming here to celebrate," fan Geraldine Mrozinski said before the Chicago Cubs' game against the Montreal Expos. "But once we got here, it seems like the perfect place to be. Here, we'll commemorate it in the proper way."

Forward returns; Hoosiers gain second win

·

The boys were back together again. For the first time in 2002, IU forwards Pat Noonan and Mike Ambersley started a regular season game on the frontline. Granted, it was not an astonishing debut for the two strikers who both attended the same high school, but the onfield chemistry that was created some five years ago at DeSmet Jesuit High School near St. Louis, Mo. was still visible.

Hoosier offense comes alive with two goals

·

It may not have been pretty, but the IU men's soccer team picked up its second victory Tuesday with a 2-0 win over Louisville. The No. 9 ranked Hoosiers dominated ball control and possession throughout the match, but managed just two goals on the Cardinals' stingy defense. IU (2-1-2) posted 13 shots to Louisville's four and the Hoosiers had eight corner kick opportunities to the Cardinals' one. Louisville (2-3) used physical play to frustrate the Hoosiers' offensive attack as they committed a total of 26 fouls to IU's 15.

'United We Stand'

·

For most Americans, the date Sept. 11 manifests a multitude of feelings. From thoughts of loss and fear to an inspired sense of patriotism and national unity, Americans faced the tragedy and dealt with it in their own way. One year later, coach Amy Robertson and the field hockey team still use the emotions and a motto provoked by Sept. 11 to inspire greater team unity.

Sept. 11 hits close to home for fullback, coach

·

For most Americans, Sept. 11 has become a landmark that is vividly cemented in their memories. Just as generations before remember where they were when John F. Kennedy was assassinated, or what they were doing when the Challenger exploded, people of all generations can clearly recollect what they were doing when the news that the World Trade Center was struck by two planes reached them.

Grad student muscles way to top

·

At first glance, Michelle Amsden looks and sounds nothing like a champion-caliber powelifter. But, Amsden, a softspoken, 5-foot, 1-inch graduate student, has become one of the premiere competitors in her sport.

Freshmen contribute early for Hoosiers

·

For first-year women's soccer coach Mick Lyon, it's been first-year players who've been making an impact. Freshmen defender Ryan Hanley and midfielder Kristen Zmijewski have both made big contributions on the field this season.
