Bethel soccer sweeps rival Northwestern

in Sports by

By: Conrad Engstrom Late game heroics propels Royals over Eagles A packed Ona Orth Complex came to watch the Bethel men’s soccer team win their home opener in dramatic fashion Friday afternoon. The game-winning goal by Brandon Martinez came in extra time. Bethel and the University of Northwestern St. Paul played the 90 minutes of regulations to a 0-0 tie before Martinez’s chop shot over Northwestern goalie Austin Gunkel to seal the victory. “It was a game where we really had to grind,” senior defenseman Thomas Redden said. “We knew Martinez would be able to give us a chance whenever he gets the ball.” Bethel shined on the defensive end of the field, giving up only two shots on goal and only four shots total. In the second half Bethel thought they had scored a goal when Andrew Zwart kicked a nice cross into the back of net. The referee…

A friend of mine who I worked with came up with a really great idea for a company and said we should start this together.…

The locker rooms, explained.

in Culture Arts & Lifestyle by

A closer look at Bethel’s athletic locker room renovations and how the size difference between men and woman’s facilities is compatible with Title IX. By Sarah Nelson | Features Reporter   A quick look into the men’s and women’s locker rooms at Bethel reveals new lockers and the BU emblem on square striped carpeting. But striking differences exist between the men’s facilities and the women’s: the size and space. Men’s athletics currently have three varsity locker rooms compared to one for female athletes. The three rooms are designated for football, men’s basketball and other remaining men’s sports. For women, one varsity locker room was built for all female athletes. An equal, day use locker room exists for both men and women. This 3:1 ratio of women’s and men’s varsity athletic locker rooms may seem disadvantageous. However, according to Title IX Coordinator and Chief Human Resources Officer Cara Wald, the layout…

Monday Morning Coffee: J. Arthur’s

in Reviews by

  Because everyone needs at least one cup of coffee on a Monday! Lexi Friesen | Social Media Editor Coffee Shop: J. Arthur’s Menu/Prices: Aztec Mocha – $3.75 The Aztec Mocha is a seasonal drink, and there is also an Aztec Hot Chocolate. I was intrigued by the cinnamon and chocolate in the drink, however, I didn’t account for any other additional spices and how much might be added to the drink. While it wasn’t my favorite drink I’ve had, it definitely wasn’t the worst. Other good drinks that I’ve had previously here include Iced White Chocolate Mochas and their plain lattes. Atmosphere: There are several larger rooms beyond the main room. This makes J. Arthur’s the perfect place for studying. Seating: Seating is plentiful and there are larger tables in the back. Music: Gentle background music only enhances the experience at J. Arthur’s, and there is live music every…
