Empowering your Inner Husky

Rachael Scicchitano

To me, attending the 8th annual Husky Student Leadership Summit was one of the most valuable ways I have spent a Saturday during my time at Bloomsburg University. Notice I said the 8th annual summit? Yes, this summit has been going on for the past eight years, and as a senior I could slap myself for not becoming a part of this incredible experience sooner.

The Bloomsburg University women's lacrosse team sailed to its third consecutive victory Tuesday, 14-6, at Shippensburg University. The Huskies (3-2, 2-0 PSAC) dominated the first half to set the tone. Reigning PSAC Athlete of the Week Julie Falk scored unassisted just over two minutes in, and 45 seconds later Carly Ball scored off a free position shot. Morgan Sherriff gave BU a quick 3-0 lead at the 24:43 mark. Brittney Hegarty made eight saves to earn the win for the Huskies. The team is next in action Friday at Gannon University.
