Tommie fans show homecoming spirit.

I got to do 2 slideshows this week – one for the actual game, and one for the fans & homecoming spirit!

Slideshow | Football vs. Hamline

Photo slideshow: Tommies remain undefeated beating Hamline 49-0.

The Tommies had won all of their games, the Pipers had won none of their games; the outcome of this game was pretty much decided before it even started. Even with the nearly-guaranteed victory, a decent amount of fans came since it was homecoming weekend.

Opinion | Gainey Center

What’s to gain at Gainey.

My first opinions piece! After wracking my head for a good topic, I finally realized that I would be better off writing about something I was passionate about, and the Gainey Conference Center definitely fits that category. If you don’t know what the center is (or why it’s so great), just take a peek at my story!

Tommie-Johnnie spirit fills O’Shaughnessy Stadium.

Hannah, one of our other TMers, got to do a fun atmosphere piece for game day. She took most of the pictures, but one of my mine made it in the slideshow so I thought I’d share!

Slideshow | Football vs. St. John’s

Tommies defeat Johnnies 63-7 in record-breaking day.

The Tommie-Johnnie game is the single most important sporting event of the year. This year marked the 110th year of the rivalry and the 80th meeting between the two schools. We DE-stroyed the Johnnies this year, continuing to build upon last year’s 27-26 victory (the first after a 12-year losing streak). Needless to say, it was a pretty good day : )

Autumn views of campus.

Season slideshows are my favorite – there’s so much room to be creative & flexible : ) Check out my winter and spring slideshows if you’d like!

Tommie-Johnnie game preparations.

As I was out hunting out for pretty leaf pictures for my fall slideshow, I ran into these men putting up extra bleachers for the big game Saturday & remembered my editors wanted a shot. Done and done!

Full coverage | South Campus field project

Fundraising for South Campus field project underway.

Prior to doing this story, I hardly even know where the South Campus soccer & softball fields were…now I know! Read up on St. Thomas’ plan to turf the fields & solve some other related problems.
