The Hastings College Women’s Soccer team was defeated Thursday night by Doane College 3-0 in the GPAC Tournament Championships.

They ended their season with a 9-1 record in their conference and a 12-7-1 record overall.
Lynn Farrell Arena was a sea of pink on Tuesday as the #5 Hastings Broncos took on Midland for the annual “Play Tough, Play Pink” night. The Bronco players wore pink wrestling shirts in remembrance of Hastings College wrestler, Brad Cusatis, who passed away earlier this year.
When the action got rolling, the Broncos took the first set 25-18. Midland had more errors than it did kills allowing the Broncos to run away with it. The 2nd set was much the same as the Broncos came away with the win 25-19. Midland had eight kills once again with two less errors, making its hitting percentage after the first two games .000 (16 kills, 16 errors, 61 attempts). [Read more...]

The 1990s was a decade of dominance by several teams at Hastings College. The Bronco baseball team finished the decade with six conference titles after a 15-year absence from the diamond. The Lady Bronco volleyball team put together several nationally ranked teams and won several league titles of their own. The Bronco football team saw three new head coaches over the decade, and still tallied seven trips to the NAIA national playoffs, never finished worse than second in the conference. I sat down with three coaches of the respective teams—Patty Sitorius, former women’s volleyball coach, Jim Boeve, current head baseball coach, and Pat McCauley, associate football coach—to piece together the puzzles of the three Hastings College sports during some of their most successful times.
Members of the staff of the Collegian have attended Mr./Ms. Bronco for the past three years as observers. This year, we noted the atmosphere of this campus-wide event was far from welcoming to the few prospective students and their families present in the audience.
The atmosphere was also actively hostile toward the student leaders representing their organizations on stage, as well as SAA staff and emcee Nick Hoff. Hoff also emceed last year, but had to adjust his routine to request respect and attention from disruptive audience members in the balcony of the Chapel.
Each year, senior art students present their art thesis to the public. This year, Teal Peterson’s and Katy Gerwig’s presentations were unique in the fact that they had 3D artwork displayed. Christi Humble also presented her senior thesis. All three students expressed their innate creativity and individuality through their artwork.
With a new class catalog this spring, a new registration system coming this fall and many different schedules to accommodate, the registration system at Hastings College is in the process of major change.
While a faculty adviser signs off on every class registration slip, responsibility for graduating on time ultimately rests with the student, as there is no guarantee against having to take an additional semester or two to graduate.
