Only a couple months removed from being named the 2012-13 team MVP, Kyle Fossman is back on his grind. His play also netted him a First Team All-GNAC selection, but he isn’t resting on his laurels this offseason.

Meet the Seawolves: Alfred Kangogo, Katie Krehlik

For the first half of our year-end profiles, I got the chance to interview middle distance runner Alfred Kangogo who became the second Seawolf ever to post three straight All-America honors in the same event (1,500 meters)

In what was probably the most interesting interview I’ve ever participated in, I chatted with senior distance runner Katie Krehlik who had an all-conference showing at the GNAC Championships, and prior to UAA, she was a four-time letter winner in both cross-country and track & field.

The Seawolf men’s and women’s track & field team competed in the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto/San Francisco, Calif. this past weekend. The team left California having produced a total of six NCAA qualifying times.

Timberlake still has it

Justin Timberlake is back from his six-year music industry hiatus, reminding everyone who counted him out that he still has it. In “The 20/20 Experience,” he adds his own southern Memphis roots into the music, and it works well.

Seawolves tumble to fourth at gymnastics championships

It wasn’t a great night for the Seawolf gymnastics team Saturday, as they finished fourth in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship meet in Seattle, Wash.

Meet the Seawolf: Sasha King

Sasha King is the starting point guard for the Seawolf women’s basketball team. Since it’s Women’s History Month, I decided it would be cool to have a one-on-one with her about the season, her future plans, women’s sports and her record-breaking performance against Northwest Nazarene.

Overtime: Naming the best player in college basketball

It’s almost March, which should be every college student’s favorite time of year. Big exams are coming up, spring break is right around the corner and March Madness is on the way.
