Relay for Life is just around the corner, which means the sisters of Beta Rho Epsilon are hard at work planning their annual event. The walk is April 8, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 pm. and will take place in the ASRC. 
 
This year’s theme will be “Finding A Cure,” which means tables, games, décor, and prizes will be “Finding Dory” themed. The goal is to inspire those with cancer to “Just Keep Swimming!”

This weekend, the baseball team will travel a few hours north for a four game series against Notre Dame College (Ohio). This will be the first set of games against a northern division opponent for the Toppers, and they will look to keep their impressive 11-1 start going. This past week, the Hilltoppers got their second weekend sweep of the year. They played against the University of Charleston and West Virginia State University and were able to put up 20 runs and only give up nine.
