ULV athletes take rituals seriously

Elsie Ramos Sports Editor He does not eat the day of a race, but the day before he has to eat pizza, he only wears a certain pair of shoes and he has to wear rubber wristbands while he runs. This is sophomore Matthew Sustayta’s routine that he follows every time he is going to compete in a cross-country race or in a track meet. Sustayta is not the only athlete at the University of La Verne who takes... 

Letters to the Editor

Living that mission was very much in evidence today when coach Richard Reed and Pui Lok Choi teamed up to bring members of the athletic teams (basketball, football, soccer and perhaps more) to support Autism Month at the Pomona Valley Workshop. They gave up their Saturday to shoot hoops with people suffering from... 

Commentary: Division III athletes thrive without glamor

Pui Lok Choi Staff Writer In NCAA Division III, there is no spotlight and no glamor. There is no highly touted basketball player going into next year’s draft, no NCAA Final Four, no coach Pat Summit leading the women Volunteers with more than 1,000 career victories, no race for the Heisman, no home of the 12th man and no media circus. However, there is the same hard work, dedication, academics and...
