Bowling team goes for gold

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (FDN) — On February 22 Huntington University’s bowling team was announced they would be bowling in sectionals in Addison, IL.

The regular season tournaments have ended and left the women’s team ranked 62 out of 124 and the men’s team 44 out of 167. Only the top 64 teams get to move on to sectionals.

The season ended with senior Brooke Ewing scoring the highest average with a 192 and freshman Thomas Gunter with a 197.

While the women’s team has only one senior, the men’s team will be losing Derek Beckler, Daniel Miller, Joe Miller, Seth Walker, Jess Meyers, Adam Shoemaker and Colin Madden as they graduate this May.

With only a few tournaments left, the team is working hard towards sectionals and NAIA Nationals.

Not only are the teammates putting in their time on the lanes but equally as much on their academics.

Daniel Miller, Joe Miller, Derek Beckler, Shelby Price, Brianna Fish and Heidi Tucker were all recognized as Honor Athletes.

Extreme Makeover: Forest Glen Edition

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (FDN) – Forest Glen Park, home of Forester baseball, will be receiving a makeover this spring.

When Huntington University President, Dr. Emberton emailed HU baseball coach Mike Frame this summer, she prompted Coach Frame to begin forming what she called a “mini capital campaign”.

This process was initiated by the the acknowledgement of the strengths and weaknesses of Forrest Glen Park’s current condition.

In late December, HU told the public about these renovation plans. The program sent letters to about 500 alumni in order to gain financial support.

Although Forrest Glen Park is a beautiful location to play baseball, some significant features are missing. Coach Frame said, “I came here in the fall of 1979, and to this date, there have not been restrooms down there.”

In addition to restrooms, internet connection, new bleachers, and a press box are included in the renovation plans in building this new “small stadium”. However, the playing field, lights, and scoreboard will not change.

You can see a diagram of what the new field will look like on HU’s website.

Groundbreaking is set for May 1 in hopes that the project will be finished by the Saturday of Homecoming next fall.
