Swine Flu

You have seen it on the news, heard about it on the radio and even might have seen it on May’s installment of Toilet Talk. “Swine Flu” is making its rounds. After an e-mail from President Switzer, it is common knowledge that as of now, Manchester College is still free from the epidemic. “Swine Flu” recently underwent a name change to the more professional sounding “influenza A (H1N1)/North American/Human Flu.” The name has been changed partly due to swine not being affected in the United States.

Short of Tourney, Spartans Still Hold Heads High
MICHAEL STEINHOFER
The chase for Ryan Carr’s homerun record has come to a close, just like Manchester College baseball team’s season. Sophomore Ty Foster and Seniors Corey Oetting and Matty Miller were all on track midway through the year to pass Carr’s 2003 record of 15 homeruns in a single season, but all three players fell short, with Oetting having 13 bombs, Miller having 12, and Foster rounding out the trio with 11.
