So thank you for everything, UConn. Thank you for putting me through the worst of it and the best of it. Thank you for giving me my Daily Campus family. Thank you for the late night talks, the late night laughs and the late night memories that I’ll never forget.
Three straight losing seasons is never a good thing, especially for a program that won two national championships this decade. But this season felt noticeably different from the last two.
I’ll look back at my time at The Daily Campus and at UConn fondly for having given me the breadth of skills, the leadership experience and the memories, too.
So, since my goodbyes haven’t seemed to stick I won’t say goodbye, I’ll just say see you later, Daily Campus.
As is tradition in the Daily Campus Sports section, it’s time to say farewell to our beloved outgoing Sports Editor Mike Logan in the only way we know how: by roasting him. It’s been a fantastic year for the sports section, full of excellent beat coverage across the board, a steady supply of fascinating in-depth feature stories, and unparalleled camaraderie. Ask Mike, and he’ll tell you he deserves all the credit. But in the final point/counterpoint of the year, incoming Sports Editor Andrew Morrison and Associate Sports Editor Kevin Arnold debate whether Mike Logan was really even a good Sports Editor at all.
As the academic year at UConn comes to a close with this weekend’s commencement festivities, there’s still baseball to be played. Students will gather to receive their diplomas in Gampel Pavilion while the Huskies will be in the midst of the last series to ever be played at J.O. Christian Field, when the Bulls of USF come to town.
The UConn field hockey team is one of the best in the nation and a perennial contender. Head coach Nancy Stevens is the winningest Division I Field Hockey coach in history, and she has led the Huskies to three national championships in her 28-year tenure at UConn, the most recent being in 2017.
As spring semester comes to a close, it’s important that us seniors have a chance to say goodbye to our favorite UConn traditions and locations. After all, it’s these special places and activities that have made our college experience unique from any other, and will continue to stick with us long after we graduate. Let’s all take a moment to bid farewell to the events, pastimes and food spots that made campus so meaningful.
