Quotes

"We don't play Colgan," Girard head coach Leon Miller said. "I've been doing this quite a long time and I think this is the first time, other than the two years I was out of this league, that I won't prepare for a game against Colgan. I'm not sure how that happened but that's the way it is for the next two years. So, that will be something different for us."
"I don't know that I'd characterize this as making a concerted effort to go one way or the other," Milburn said. "But certainly there are constituencies that in any campaign — you go to your base, and there are events that tie into that base."
"While the Bicknell Center will be posed to broaden and enhance our work in the visual and performing arts, the Plaster Center offers the campus and community a chance to expand its economic reach and impact, Scott said."
