As classes started up for the Loyola students on Tuesday, September 2, students, alumni and fans alike turned their attention to Ridley Athletic Complex for the start of a new soccer season. The Men’s team kicked off their season at home against Howard University.
The Greyhounds sported a bit of a new look on the sidelines for this game as new Head Coach, Steve Nichols, made his debut with the team.
Nichols watched his team start off the year strong with a goal in the 22nd minute from Senior Connor Thompson, bringing the Hounds to life for the 2014 season.
Of course, Mother Nature wanted to make her presence known and start off the season with a typical Baltimore welcome, namely thunderstorms with sheets of pouring rain.

Mingo Fishtrap was kicking off the third night of the Rochester International Jazz Festival in an unforgettable manner. It was hard to imagine cars ever driving on Gibbs Street because the music lovers had claimed the road as their own. Strangers quickly became dancing partners and friends as Mingo Fishtrap’s soulful funky sound assertively boogied its way through the crowd. Read the rest of this entry »
