Senior Night

Have you been looking for an group to get involved with? Try out Griffin Gang! Our group is all about getting students to the games to support our teams. Every week our executive team gathers to discuss ways in which we could get more involvement from the crowd. Of course, our sports teams are not as big as D1 schools because we are only D3, but our athletes work just as hard and deserve their friends and colleagues at these games just as much.

Griffin Gang has specific sponsored games for each sport. They are always home games that we sponsor, and they always have a theme so our crowd can be just as involved! Our next game is the Women’s and Men’s Basketball Senior Night. These games will be played this Saturday at 1 and 3 PM in the gymnasium. The theme for these games are dressing as “Senior Citizens” for Senior Night. Fans can dress in their grandpa’s coat or whatever they see fit for the theme. It is all in a matter of fun to have everyone included!

When we sponsor games, Griffin Gang has a table that is placed at the entrance of the field or at the bottom of the bleachers when fans walk in. You really can’t miss us! We are there to welcome you to the game, tell you about the upcoming games and themes, and put a star in your punch card. If you don’t know what a punch card is then you should come to our table more often! Griffin Gang gives a prize to students if they receive 10 punches in their punch card just by coming to the games and stopping by our table. The prize is a free t-shirt! Next year for the school year ’15-’16 Griffin Gang will be ordering new shirts since so many students have filled out their cards, which is great! Hold on to your cards in the summer if it is not yet completed. These cards do roll over to the next year, and who wouldn’t want another Fonty Tee?!

If you have any questions about getting involved with Griffin Gang or want more information about what we do, please contact me at blaskos@fontbonne.edu.   Go Griffins!

My last forty minutes of basketball is tonight. I have always had basketball in my life since I have been in 5th grade. I have used up all my athletic eligibility and I’m not sure how I feel about today being my last day playing ball. I am somewhat happy because I am slightly burnt out but I become saddened to know how much I am going to miss these girls. My teammates have become sisters to me and I have never had that happen to me on all of my teams I have played on. I know I will miss it by the end of the week for sure. It is time to grow up and put my big girl panties on. So please come out tonight and encourage our three seniors at 6PM when we battle Greenville for one more victory.

I just wanted to start off the new semester by saying hello to any new followers! This is my first blog of the semester and it seems as though it could not have come at a more exciting/anxious time in my college career. This semester I am juggling twenty-hours which include a 300 hour internship. In my little bit of spare time I am playing basketball, golf, and possibly lacrosse. In other news I just took the LSAT last Saturday and am restlessly awaiting the score for that while filling out what seem like endless law school applications. That being said…I couldn’t be doing this all if I wasn’t able to lean on those people at Fontbonne who have guided me thus far and will continue to help until I walk down the graduation aisle in May! Therefore, I just wanted to take this blog to highlight and say thank you to some key people who have helped me have an enjoyable Fontbonne experience that I can use as I move on after graduation. My past and current advisors Rex VanAlmsick, Ben Moore, and Jack Luzcow have helped to guide me through the undergraduate process while the entire time putting my interests first and foremost. With their supportive guidance both in and outside of the classroom I have managed to double major and graduate in three years. While school did come first for me, I full heartedly admit that my experience at Fontbonne would be incomplete without all of my other activity involvement! Therefore, I must also thank past and current coaches and teammates for all the fun and support they have given me. Special thanks to coach Quigley, Greta, and Heather and every single teammate that I have had at Fontbonne. Whoever said that many girls can’t get along definitely didn’t come to Fontbonne! Even the older girls who I played with my freshman year came to support me at my senior night last Tuesday! Fontbonne truly has been the tight knit community that I needed to get me from where I was to where I wanted to go.

Senior Night

Senior Night is already here. Oh my, I can’t believe that the season is almost over. Our basketball season started the first week of school. We have become a family and meshing really well the past couple of weeks. I am going to be really sad once it is all over. I am now wondering what I am going to do when I don’t have practice. It has been a part of my every-day schedule, and I feel like I will have too much time on my hands and will become bored. My little sister and my brother have the same spring break. From now until spring break we are having a competition with the Nike trainer application on the iPhone. It will keep me motivated to work out when basketball is over and stay in shape. It is a very intense workout but totally worth it.
