As Berry’s lacrosse teams prepare to start the 2023 season, team members and coaches seek a year that will put the teams on the conference map after years of rebuilding team culture.
On Jan. 2, National Football League (NFL) player Damar Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, suffered a heart attack during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 24-year-old survived and started the recovery process this month, also sparking a nationwide conversation about athlete safety.
The University of Georgia became back-to-back national champions in college football for the first time on Monday, Jan. 9. The Bulldogs defeated Texas Christian University (TCU) by a score of 65-7, the largest winning margin in nine-year history of College Football Playoff (CFP) games.
The Berry College football program has missed out on the playoffs for the second consecutive year, but the team feels that progress has been made in re-establishing a winning team culture on the gridiron.
Throughout the past semester Berry Recreation has held several unconventional tournaments. While intramural (IM) sports have been present on campus for many years, cornhole, spike ball and pickleball are recent additions to the IM roster.
Cornhole is the most recent addition to IM sports on campus with the first tournament held on Nov. 5. The cornhole tournament champions, juniors Hunter Whitaker and Prem Patel thought it would be something fun and different to participate in.
