Wanted to post this last night but got distracted by life. Sorry for the delay in getting this post up.
Health/Off Campus Life/Campus Life:
This article discusses NAU’s Southwest Health Equity Research Collaborative (SHERC) funding for the next five years (a $21.4 million grant) to increase the university’s basic biomedical, clinical and behavioral research capacity to address health disparities among diverse populations of the region.
If you’re away from Flagstaff (like yours truly) take a look at the above
article. You can find NAU Football and Basketball games for free with the
TuneIn app. Go Jacks!!!
Football (2-2, 2-0):
NAU Head football coach Jerome Sours is retiring after the end of this
season. The announcement was made on Tuesday to ensure that the university
and the community had an opportunity the thank coach Sours over the
remainder of the season. Coach Sours is the winningest coach in Big Sky
history (114 wins (77 Conf. wins) and counting). I remember playing
football in Arizona in the late 90’s and Coach Sours visiting our
practice. We didn’t talk or anything, but when I saw this article it did
remind me of that time and how, for most recent NAU grads, they’ve never
known an NAU football program without Coach Sours. We wish you the best
Coach, and thank you for all the great memories you’ve given us. You truly
are a Lumberjack Legend!
2 days until NAU head to Portland to take on Portland State and try to keep the win streak (3 wins) going! Go Jacks!!!
Women’s Soccer (8-7-0, 3-3-0):
The Lady Jacks dropped 2 on the road at Portland State and Montana. Tomorrow, they return home to take on Weber State and Idaho State on Sunday. Go Jacks!!!
Volleyball (6-11, 2-4):
The Lady Jacks dropped their last two games, losing to Estern Washington 0-3 and to Idaho 2-3. Up next, the Lady Jacks will hit the road to take on Portland State (today) and Sacramento State (Saturday). Go Jacks!!!!
The NCAA National Champion Lumberjack Cross Country team received their
rings in Sept. Way to go, Jacks!
The Defending NCAA Champions keep up the good work with a 1st place finish
(19 pts) at the Greater Louisville Classic. The women finished in 5th
place with 181 pts. Up next, the Wisconsin Nuttycombe Invitational for the
Men on the 13th and the Pre-National Invitational on the 14th (both are
away, in Madison and Louisville, respectively). Go Jacks!!!
The Lady Jacks finished T11th, 13th, and 11th at the Ron
Moore Women’s Intercollegiate in Fort Collins, CO. Sofia Anokhina and Kaitlyn Saum both had one-under performances in the final round. Go Jacks!!!
