After five seasons as a club sport, both men’s and women’s lacrosse is finally gaining varsity status.
The biggest story of the Bejing Olympics was Michael Phelps winning eight gold medals. Albion’s swimming teams adopted the magic number by breaking eight school records at the MIAA finals over the weekend. For the Britons, men’s swimming finished fifth while the Lady Brits took sixth place.
Growing up David Bunn, Lansing senior, used to play basketball in the driveway with his younger brother, Peter Bunn.
From throwing a 50 pitch bull pen to swimming a 50-meter freestyle, practice days have become pretty hectic for Ryan Gunderson, Grosse Pointe senior.
An entire season’s worth of hard work, early morning practices and record-breaking performances comes to an end next weekend when the Albion swim and dive teams travel to the University of Notre Dame to compete in the MIAA championships.
Since 1990, the Albion College men’s basketball team has had only one losing record. Opening the 2008-2009 season however, the Britons went 5-5 in non-conference play and dropped their first two games against MIAA teams. Jody May, rookie head coach, knew he would face challenges in his first season behind the bench, but he faced more hardships when three players were placed on the inactive list. Chris Farr, Walled Lake junior, David Bunn, Lansing senior, and week seven MIAA Player of the Week Drew Yancey, Okemos senior, are all out with injuries.
