Big Win, Tough Loss

Coming off a tough overtime loss to first place St. Thomas Aquinas College by a score of 2-1, the Pioneers came out focused and determined for their next games at Molloy College (3-11) and Mercy College (6-6-2).

Dig Pink

The Pioneers volleyball team walked away from their “Dig-Pink” match on Saturday with a split.  The games were played as part of the CW Post-held tri-match that took place in the Pratt Center and featured a very pink setting as coaches from all three teams wore pink and the stands were heavily decorated in the color in order to honor the “Dig-Pink” cause.  In addition to CW Post, the match included teams from Dowling and American International Colleges.

Women’s Soccer Continues to Win

The C.W. Post Pioneer Women’s soccer team continued their winning streak by defeating Caldwell College and Mercy College this past week.  Prior to the two matches the Pioneers had beaten Wilmington University, Dowling College and Saint Thomas Aquinas College in impressive fashion.

On Monday, the Pioneers easily took care of Caldwell College in a non-conference match up. Midfielder Tove Eriksson opened up the scoring for Post at 21:47. Five minutes later freshman Alexa Niciforo would score her first of two goals she tallied in the game.

X’s and O’s

The best way to judge a team is not by the number of wins or losses it has, but by the way it plays each specific game. So while a 5-3 record for CW Post is not the most glamorous mark, it tells a deep, promising story.  Case in point: the Pioneers’ 50-48 loss against Kutztown.

Senior Spotlight: Kristina Gustafson

A four-year starter who has never sat out a single game in her college career, Kristina Gustafson has virtually been the backbone of the Pioneers’ field hockey team. After spending her first two collegiate seasons at midfield, Gustafson was voted Second-Team All-PSAC her sophomore year before she switched to defense her junior and senior seasons. On defense Gustafson subtly maintains control of the game while always keeping a positive attitude. Not only does Gustafson excel on the field, however, but the senior from New Braintree, Massachusetts also maintains one of the highest GPAs on the team, garnering a spot on the NFHCA National Academic Squad each of her three years completed at C.W. Post.

Pioneers Fall Short of Comeback

It was a dog fight from the start, the offenses from the Pioneers and the Kutztown Golden Bears driving down the field possession after possession. The Pioneers were right in the middle of the shoot out but couldn’t lock it up at the end even with Erik Anderwkavich setting records.

Kutztown scored early but the Pioneers fought back but the score remained at 10-7, Post got its touchdown when Anderwkavich connected with Darnell Williams for a 5-yard catch.

A Letter From the Editors in Chief

To the Association for Campus Programming Executive Board and the Offices of Student Life and Services- in regards to Homecoming 2010 Photo Collage:

Although it is not our responsibility to represent C.W. Post any certain way – positive or negative – it was NOT our intention to denote the lack of coverage or diversity ACP and the Office of Student Life and Leadership worked so hard to produce.  We recognize your efforts and agree that there could have been more exemplifying Post unity, which you so carefully described to us.  That being said, as much as we appreciate your comments and concerns, we have the right to publicize Homecoming in any way we desire.

Quick Midterm Election Update: CW Post, The Disengaged Student Body

Less than a week until New York State elections, the race for the state governor’s seat has become very heated. The normal issues of taxation and the states budget have come under debate but issues such as gay rights have dominated much of the candidates smear campaigns.  The midterm elections across the nation have become very important for the Democrats, as they struggle to stay in power at all levels of government.
