Monday Morning Coffee: Urban Bean

  Because everyone needs at least one cup of coffee on a Monday! Lexi Friesen | Social Media Editor Coffee Shop: Urban Bean (Lake St, Minneapolis, MN) Prices: Iced White Mocha $4.50 … According to senior Nikki Betzler, Urban Bean’s Iced White Mocha’s are at least twice as good as Royal Grounds version. White Coconut Johnson (Specialty Drink) $5 … It wasn’t quite the coconut flavor I was expecting, more of a pumpkin spice/cinnamon flavor. It wasn’t bad, I wasn’t in love with it and especially for $5, I probably wouldn’t get it again. For more on the drink menu and prices, click here: Atmosphere: While the gray, sticky, scratched floor didn’t impress upon first appearance, the overall atmosphere is classy. White walls with simple black lettering and pictures gave Urban Bean a peaceful and simple impression. The white walls and big windows provided great lighting in the daytime,… Keep Reading


BU Women’s Hockey Shutout by No. 3 Adrian College

Marshal Lortie BLAINE, Minn. – The Bethel University women’s hockey team took on a tough challenge Monday night, facing off against the No. 3 ranked Adrian College Bulldogs. While limiting the top scoring team in the nation, the Royals were not able to net any goals of their own and fell 2-0. The Bulldogs entered Bethel University Arena riding a nine-game winning streak and jumped out to an early lead. Freshman forward Olivia Ziemba started the scoring less than two minutes into the first period, notching her first goal of the season. Fellow freshman Kortney Diaz and junior Bailey Robertson assisted on the play, giving the visitors the upper hand. “It was a bit of a slow start, once we got our legs moving it was an extremely competitive game,” Bethel head coach Brian Carlson said. Adrian, which currently leads the country with 5.13 goals per game, would not score… Keep Reading


Bethel Men Cruise past Hamline

Derek McGaffey With the Bethel Royals men’s basketball team coming off of their first home loss in nearly a year, and second loss in a row, they hosted the Hamline Pipers at the Robertson Center gymnasium. Hamline came into the game in the midst of an 8-game losing drought. “[We can’t] let it get more than that. We need to finish better,” Bethel head coach Doug Novak said. Bethel started the scoring with a Trevor Hall lay-up. The game remained tight throughout the first 8 minutes. Knotted up at 17 apiece, Hamline head coach Jim Hayes called their first timeout with 11:37 to go in the first half. The Royals began to build a lead after the timeout, going up by six with 6:52 left. Bethel big man Tim Hanson nailed a three, his second make from downtown this season, to force another Pipers’ timeout with 5:10 remaining. Senior Jared… Keep Reading


Still a Part of the Team

Derek McGaffey Five years ago, senior Ben Price first showed up to Bethel University, determined to be a part of the men’s hockey team. The red-haired freshman developed a relationship with former Bethel head coach Peter Aus at a hockey camp in Boston. The St. Johnsbury, Vermont native’s decision to attend Bethel was influenced by the hall of fame coach. Price made the team in his first year, but following the season, after a meeting with the coaches, it was clear that he would not be a part of the team next year. So he joined the football team. “I just wanted to be competitive,” he said. Price would stick to football for the rest of his college career, starting at wide receiver and eventually transitioning to tight end. After his final season, and finishing his college degree in four-and-a-half years, Price needed to get surgery on his hip. He… Keep Reading


80-60 Win over Tommies Gives Lady Royals New Confidence

Tori Sundholm Just minutes after the final buzzer, Rachel Paraupsky and Coach Herbrechtsmeyer embrace after an 80-60 victory over St. Thomas on Saturday. Their faces of relief and delight echoed throughout the whole team, all knowing what an important game this was. Coming into the game, St.Thomas placed second in the MIAC behind St. Mary’s, while Bethel sat in a five-way tie for third. “It felt tremendous. I was almost speechless,” Herbrechtsmeyer said. In yesterday’s practice, Herbrechtsmeyer had a lot more to say, frustrated over help-defense drills in preparation for today’s game. But on Saturday, Bethel’s defensive performance left him with different outlook. “For three quarters we executed our defense nearly perfect. It’s hard with a 20-point lead to sustain energy,” Herbrechtsmeyer said. Paraupsky knew it would be a tough match-up. “The whole game I felt shaky with excitement and adrenaline and I’m still bouncing,” Paraupsky said. St. Thomas head… Keep Reading
