Shakespeare Behind Bars Trip

April 5, 2018 General Comments Off on Shakespeare Behind Bars Trip Posted By: Jack Heller

I am arranging for a group to attend the Shakespeare Behind Bars (SBB) performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. SBB is a group of incarcerated men in Kentucky who rehearse and perform a Shakespeare play every year; they have been the inspiration for the Shakespeare @ Pendleton program. This trip will occur on Thursday, May 10. Everyone who wishes to attend must complete and pass the prison’s (Luther Luckett Correctional Complex) criminal background check. The cost for taking the trip is $10 for van rental and your purchases at a Starbucks and at a fast food restaurant. This is a long trip: we would leave Huntington at noon and return as late as 2 a.m. If you are interested in attending, though, this will be an experience you will never forget. Let me know by Monday, April 9

MEN’S TENNIS

April 5, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S TENNIS Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Playing indoors with a jostled line-up that didn’t include Ignacio Poncio, Rodrigo Manzo or Mariano Echevarria, the Forester men’s tennis team still breezed past Defiance College 7-2 Wednesday afternoon to claim their tenth win of the year. The Yellow Jackets are coached by HU alum and former tennis standout Gonzo Vivas.

A pair of seniors in Mark Lewandowski and Vova Kohut led the way by teaming up to win at #2 doubles and then turning around to each beat his opponent in singles action. What should have been HU’s fourth match of the spring was just the second as inclement weather has forced several cancellations.

Huntington (10-4-1) is back in action on Saturday to host Prairie State College at Wildwood Tennis Club in Fort Wayne at 3:00 p.m.

SINGLES RECAP
#1 – Luke Buttermore (HU) def. Adam Swisher (DC) 6-0, 7-5
#2 – Giovanni Martinez (HU) def. Jared Schnee (DC) 6-3, 6-2
#3 – Brody Worl (HU) def. Eline Widman (DC) 6-3, 6-2
#4 – Vova Kohut (HU) def. Nathan Principe (DC) 6-1, 6-1
#5 – Mark Lewandowski (HU) def. Ring Lardner (DC) 6-3, 6-0
#6 – Henry Brown (DC) def. Noah Tobias (HU) 8-6

DOUBLES RECAP
#1 – Swisher/Schnee (DC) def. Buttermore/Martinez (HU) 8-6
#2 – Kohut/ Lewandowski (HU) def. Widman/Principe (DC) 8-5
#3 – Worl/Tobias (HU) def. Brown/Micaiah Cox (DC) 8-3

Christiana Danielle is Going to the Playoffs!

April 4, 2018 General Comments Off on Christiana Danielle is Going to the Playoffs!

If you didn’t see last nights episode of The Voice, here’s what you missed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS0GEHjyOx4

HU’s own Christiana Danielle, class of 2017, rocked The Voice stage last night, then she lost out to her competition when her coach, Alicia Keys, chose her rival to move on automatically to the Playoffs. But that’s when things got interesting! Immediately after Alicia chose her opponent to move on, Alicia used her Save Button to automatically save Christiana so that she too advanced to the Playoffs! But wait, the story still isn’t over. After Alicia used her save button, Kelly Clarkson used her Steal Button to try to lure Christiana away from Alicia’s Team. Then Adam Levine made things even more interesting when he too pushed his Steal Button, giving Christiana the opportunity to choose  to stay on Team Alicia, or to jump to Team Adam or Team Kelly! Ultimately she chose to stay on Team Alicia, but it was a wild and fun ride to get there!

The next step in her journey on The Voice is the first episode of the live Playoffs taking place on April 16 at 8pm! Mark your calendars and make plans to join us in ZURCHER AUDITORIUM as we have a blow-out watch party to cheer her on!
