Our first game is on Tuesday. We call it an exhibition game when you play a division higher than you. Missouri Baptist has a great basketball program. We have prepared all that we can and we are out to beat them. Last year they started off with a quick lead and we came back only [...]

Weeks gone by

by Lee October 12, 2012

A mix of  tests, projects, work, and family concerns have me slowly spinning in circles. But, I am slowly figuring it all out without getting too dizzy! In my [...]

Women’s basketball is about to start up Monday the 15th. This year we have five stellar freshman that are going to help tremendously this year. We have worked really hard this pre-season with conditioning and weightlifting. This is my senior year, so I am giving it all I got this year. We have the potential [...]

by Allison October 3, 2012

Before I start my studies, I make a list of everything that I need to do for the next three days of school work. Doing this makes sure that I don’t miss anything. It is also a nice feeling to see what I have accomplished. I normally do this on a Monday and I try [...]

Yet another week at Fontbonne is halfway over, and this week I am actually excited for it for two reasons: 1.

I Love Foodology

by Kelia September 24, 2012

In my most recent cooking class, we learned how to make egg drop soup, spring rolls with our choice of chicken, crab or veggies, and a nice dipping sauce to go [...]

Helping Heal

by Allison September 21, 2012

They importance of team bonding: FBU style The minute all of us basketball girls were fully introduced, there was an instant sister bond.

Do or Die!

by Marielle April 3, 2012

One thing I would like to do during my time at Fontbonne is to attend an athletic event for every sport. If you look at the Fontbonne athletics page (which is http://www.griffinpride.com/athletics/ by the way) you’ll see that Fontbonne has baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track, volleyball, bowling, softball, and dance. So [...]

You Heard of the Dream Team?

by Marielle March 28, 2012

“C’mon, Michael, it’s game time. Slip on your Hanes, lace up your Nikes, take your Wheaties and your Gatorade, and we’ll grab a Big Mac on the way to the ballpark!” Even though the above quote has absolutely nothing to do with cross country or track, it still finds its way into my head at [...]
