The last week has brought some exciting events to Saint Mary’s. On April 21st, the 50th anniversary of Gaslight was celebrated. Gaslight is the spring music show that helps benefit the senior class. Since this year was a special year celebrating the 50th anniversary, there was an alumni Gaslight show held early on in the night. Performers from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s came to perform. Included was a performance from the original Oldie Moldie All-stars as well, which is the music fraternity’s band. Just like the Blue Angel show in the fall, the members of the show are all selected after a tryout process. It is always great to see your classmate’s talents on stage!
The Saint Mary’s baseball team is also making a late push for the playoffs. Today I was able to watch the team play two games against Augsburg. Heading into the game, Augsburg was ranked third in the conference with a 9-7 record. The first game was very close and ended up being a 2-0 victory. The second game was a back and forth battle, and it was tied 5-5 after 7 innings. In the 8th inning, the Cardinals were able to score and sweep the two game series. St. Mary’s is now tied for 4th in the conference. It will be an exciting finish because only the top 4 teams in the MIAC make the playoffs. Good luck at Hamline SMU Baseball!
