“Dog Days” for Men’s Tennis

Big goals from last weekend turned into question marks, as the Spartans had a rude awakening on Saturday against in-state rival, Western Michigan.

“It was a perfect storm of events that just didn’t go our way,” explained senior tennis player Harry Jadun. “They’re a tough team and those guys came to play.”

The match against Western Michigan had all of the ingredients for a win. The Spartans started off by winning its doubles point and had early momentum, but junior John Patrick Mullane endured soreness in his shoulder during the day. He still played his full doubles match with a sore shoulder and also his singles match, but ended up losing 6-3, 6-3. Read More…

But he did just that this past Sunday, capturing the checkered flag in the first race of the season in his No. 22 Ford, to grab his first career Daytona 500 win and sweeping the weekend at Daytona for his manufacturer, Ford (Tyler Reddick won the Camping World Truck race and Ryan Reed won the Xfinity race).   Read More…

“The Cager” Premiere Showcases Local Consolidated Entrepreneurial Efforts

Almost exactly 24 hours after the Oscars concluded in Los Angeles, a young group of advantageous entrepreneurs held their own private red-carpet gala at NCG Eastwood Cinemas in Lansing to celebrate the completion of their own cinematic work. “The Cager”, a 25-minute film written and directed by current MSU basketball guard Keenan Wetzel and starring former MSU standout turned Los Angeles-based actor, Delvon Roe, was the centerpiece of Lansing’s own version of a Hollywood premiere.

The swank celebration and the short film tuned out to be more about the combined abilities of a whole cast and crew and the effort that it took to individually and locally produce a short film than about its two stars.
