Sophomore Taylor Devine recorded the women’s golf program’s first-ever hole in one on March 23 as she aced the second hole at LedgeRock Golf Club in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. Devine used a pitching wedge on the 120-yard hole for the hole in one.
The Spartan men’s and women’s soccer teams, the field hockey program, and the volleyball squad were all granted the ability to schedule four scrimmages during the Spring Semester. Each team will play four other MAC teams and get two home games and two road games. The Spartans used those scrimmages to prepare for the upcoming fall 2021 season.
COVID-19 has changed a number of different things in our daily lives. One area of the Spartan Athletic Department that has seen significant changes is the Spartan athletic training room. Head Athletic Trainer Nate Cooke has been on the forefront of COVID-19 safety procedures as the Athletic Department has returned to action.
“We have changed almost every aspect of our daily operation,” says Cooke. “Our most important job is to keep our athletes and ourselves safe. We have worked very hard to establish protocols that enable us to keep our athletes healthy while we treat them and keep them on the field.”
Cooke and his team have also been responsible for leading the COVID-19 testing program that sees Spartan student-athletes getting tested up to three times a week. The testing enabled the Spartan varsity teams to participate safely during the 2021 spring season.
