Fornari praises women's soccer team [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999
Fornari praises women's soccer team Dedication, loyalty and spirit are all qualities that athletic teams like to be known for. Usually those words are given to teams that show those qualities on their respected playing fields. But some members of the Behrend women's soccer team took their Lion pride into the winter season, off of their fields and into Erie Hall. After the AMCC tournament this past weekend, Behrend women's basketball coach, Roz Fornari commended the spirit of the fans on their way to the championship. But Fornari thanked the spirit that the soccer team brought to the Lady Lions. Fornari complemented, "I'd have to say that our crowd, the women's soccer team, was just... They were awesome. The support was awesome all year long, but I'd have to say the women's soccer team fired our team up!" The Lady Lions' soccer team should be looked at as an example to the Behrend community to support Behrend athletics. It may lead to an AMCC title.

AMCC Champs continued from page 9 Said Fornari. "Last year was a painful loss. It was nice to see our players pull through at the end." Phillips and Nestor led the Lions with 20 and 19 points, respectively. "We went to our offense that really isolated Nestor on the side with Phillips. And that was the key, because if they were to stop Nestor, they wouldn't be able to stop Phillips. If they were going to stop Phillips, they couldn't stop Nestor," commented Fornari. O'Lare added 11 hard-fought points in the paint. Despite being held scoreless, Buck finished with five rebounds and two assists. Pitt-Bradford had four players reach double-figures as Lindsay hit for 12 points followed by Blake and Figley (11) and Miller with in. The postgame ceremonies consisted of the trophy presentation to the Behrend Lions followed by the traditional cutting down of the nets in front of the 250 Behrend fans in attendance.

Know Your Lions... #33 Erin Phillips [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999
Know Your Lions... #33 Erin Phillips Women's Basketball by Jessica Tucci associate editor Rookie of the year, Behrend leading scorer and leading rebounder. Is there anything that 5' 10" freshman Erin Phillips can not do. Phillips averages a consistent 14 points per game, and grabs 16.7 rebounds per game. She is 56% accurate in field goals and 77% in free throws "Rookie of the year is a great accomplishment for Phillips", says coach Fornari. "She was a whole lot for us this year. She was a big reason we were so successful this year," concluded Fornari. As far as Phillips herself, she is modest and doesn't like to comment on her play, but she does like to boast about the success of the team. "We played well together all year, and I'm very happy we ended the season on a good note by winning the AMCC," says Phillips.
Vehicle Break-ins and Vandalism Under Investigation [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999
Vehicle Break-ins and Vandalism Under Investigation By Jennifer Hemme staff writer Behrend has had seven incidents of vehicle break-ins since the twentieth of January. Most of the break-ins occurred in the South Apartment Lot. A wide range of items were stolen including compact discs, compact disc players, a fog light, and a turn signal lens. The investigation of these vehicle break-ins has involved the Millcreek Townships and the City of Erie Police Departments, as well as Behrend's Police and Safety Services. According to Bill Donahue, manager of Police and Safety Services, "We have a very good lead at this point as to people who may have been involved." However, Donahue declined to name the suspects because of the ongoing investigation. There have also been two cases of car vandalism that are not related to the vehicle break-ins. Police and Safety has not identitled any suspects of these two cases, which may be random acts or may be a result of a personal vendetta. In one...
Behrend tours D.C. during Spring Break [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999
Behrend tours D.C. during Spring Break by Michael Frawiey Assistant Editor From March 7 to March 13, nine Behrend students spent an exciting week studying politics at the center of American political life, Washington DC All of the students involved came away with a greater understanding of how politics works through a myriad of activities that bridged the entire political spectrum. The students were accompanied by Dr. Robert Speel and Dr. Matt Davies, both of whom are Assistant Political Science Professors at Behrend, who were able to supply commentary on the realities of our national government. Dr. Speel and Dr. Davies put much time and effort into planning activities for the group that would be entertaining as well as educational. Free time was also provided for the students to explore their own interests around Washington. Students used the Washington Metro System for transportation around Washington, which was a first time experience for many. Students were exposed to a...
Friendships formed at local campuses [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999
Friendships formed at local campuses Elizabeth Guelcher Layout Editor Geographically, Behrend might seem disconnected from the rest of the world. The closest fast food restaurant isn't even within walking distance. But as far as a social life goes, Erie area students should not feel short changed. Erie is home to four major colleges: Behrend, Edinboro, Gannon, and Mercyhurst. Not only does this open up a wealth of opportunities for academic improvement, but also the chance for students to expand their social horizons. Do students from Behrend hang out with students from Gannon? Will students from the Boro spend their weekends with kids from the Hurst? An informal survey of students at all these schools suggests the answer is yes. The first reason is that Erie high schools feed Erie colleges. John Grippe, a freshman psychology major at Gannon, has friends at all four schools. His explanation: he grew up here. John said, "I think a lot of students at the four Erie schools went...
Cheerleaders bring spirit to Behrend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999
Cheerleaders bring spirit to Behrend by Katie Galley wire services editor Not too many people can say that they have attended all the Behrend home basketball games, except for maybe the coaches and team members...and the cheerleaders. Thoughout it's 50 year history, Behrend has always had cheerleaders. The team has always been coed. This year, the cheerleaders helped root the Lady Lions to the AMCC Championships and the Behrend men to the ECAC Championships. This group of dedicated cheerers practice two hours a day, three days a week during the preseason. Throught basketball season, they practice two hours a day, twice a week. Then, of course, they are there to cheer for all the mens' and women's home basketball games. The occasional away game will also make its way into their already busy schedule. It may seem that all this practice and game cheering time might take away from academics and other social activities, but the students say that it is worth the effort. "Cheerlead...

The success of this formula is evident in their exciting performances, and the band is quickly gaining a loyal following. ' Steve Wolf was named by Goldmine ...
Interracial friendships are important [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999
Interracial friendships are important Aviewfromthe[lighthouse Interracial friendships are an asset that everyone needs to possess at least once in their life. Interracial friendships cause people to learn and experience different cultures. Through being with friends of a different race, one can learn how different their friend's family life, outlook on life in general, values, and religion are as compared to their own. By experiencing a different way of life, one may change their ways or perspective on certain issues. The Multi-Cultural Council at Behrend is one such place that students can find people of all different races. Everlasting friendships can be formed through activities that the Multi-Cultural Council sponsors. There is no reason why one should stay within their own culture, because this limits one's knowledge and experiences. Limiting oneself to one's race is a sign of ignorance and inferiority. Being exposed to different races plays an integral role in a pers...
